Robert Comeau
RE: Como at St Anthony
Thanks for the change on the page. Rose-Délima Vidal Comeau is the aunt of my great grandfather. She moved from Quebec to Maine to Minnesota. Most of her children stayed in Maine.

RE: Como at St Anthony
Isaïe Comeau is her husband. Frank and Daniel are her sons. Isaïe died in Minneapolis in 1905. Daniel moved to Maine. Frank stayed in MN. She use Delia Rose during her adult life and is found that way on documents. Deleriss comes from Delima Rose contracted and distorted. Delia Rose would sounds like Deleriss when a Quebecer is talking to an English speaking person.

Thanks for the edits. We all try to be accurate. The great fun is figuring out the puzzles. I have the correct Martin Hayes assigned to the correct grave, Lot 5 Block 87, and I did submit a new edit for his amended birthdate for your consideration.

I viewed the original St. Anthony Cemetery sexton burial record book yesterday. I first saw it during the late 1960's at the cemetery. It was kept in the sexton's house, which is still there as you know, and the sexton at that time was an Hungarian immigrant Mike Miho, long gone. I visited with Mr. Miho on several occasions. Fun chats about the Irish graveyard and Hungary. Afterward, it was kept at St. Mary's and today, St. Anthony's "book" is housed at Gethsemane.

There were 13 people recorded buried in Lot 5 Block 87. A lot designed for 10 people. Of course some of the record is in error and there were four children interred, who were all moved to Block 38 in 1930. Summary: There are currently eight recorded adult burials in the lot and two extra grave markers with no recorded burials underneath for a total of ten. The lot was originally purchased by James Hayes in 1870.

Just offering some chatter to you. It does take a few attempts sometimes to arrive at the most accurate scenario.

Your expertise, continued work, help to others and friendship to me is much appreciated.

RE: Edits (Duquette)
Thank you! Being protective is a VERY good thing. So much misinformation out there. The time and effort you take to keep records straight is commendable - and St. Anthony's is worth it. Take care. Mary.

RE: Edits (Duquette)
Hello: The Duquettes have been very hard to piece together. Joseph Duquette and Olympe (Ellen) Tessier had 8 children: Priscilla was their oldest daughter, married to David Desormiers (Desomery / Desormy): Priscilla and David had 5 children together in Minneapolis. The youngest Duquette was a girl named Ida. I would attribute a listening error to “Eva” - which sounds like the French pronunciation of Ida (EE-da); and a transcription error to the LDS record of her death which reads “Ira Duguette.” As for the mother, Ellen was baptized Olympe, but most of her American records say “Ellen” or “Helene” (pronounced Ay-LEN - similar to Olympe which is pronounced Uh-LAMP). But it is all the same person. After being widowed, Ellen married her sister’s widower and moved back to Wisconsin. The sister (Adeline Tessier Mosse Londo) was my kids’ g-g-g-g-grandmother.

RE: Anthony Keller

Found the information for "Anthony" Keller while searching on the LDS site of
Knew that his real name was Anton, and Americanized to Anthony. Also knew that he married Regina "Rachel" in Germany and had a son, Urban "Albert", before coming to America in 1839 and 1st settling in Cincinnati, Ohio and then moving on to St Anthony, Hennepin, Minnesota.

Found the following marriage record on family search: (all names are "latinized" for the Catholic church, ie: J Anton Keller, Regina Daub, etc)
Name: J. Antonium Keller
Spouse's Name: Reginam Daub
Event Date: 05 Sep 1837
Event Place: Neupotz, Bayern, Germany
Father's Name: Joannis Georgii Keller
Mother's Name: Mariae Evae Schaaf
Spouse's Father's Name: Petri Daub
Spouse's Mother's Name: Catharinae Elisabethae Heid
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M97647-3 , System Origin: Germany-EASy , GS Film number: 367606 , Reference ID: 13

In doing additional search, found his birth record:
Name: Joannes Adamus Keller (should be Antonium, not Adamus)
Event Date: 1810
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 30 Dec 1810
Birth Year: 1810
Christening Date: 31 Dec 1810
Christening Place: Neupotz, Bayern, Germany
Father's Name: Joanne Georgio Keller
Mother's Name: Maria Eva Schaaf

Also found Urbanus's birth record and more info on the parents of both Anton and Regina. Was also nice to have finally found the correct last name of Regina, as some people have it down as Dahnl (which doesn't even come up in any search of German last names).

Hope this helps some.

Kathleen Bond, 3rd great granddaughter of Anton and Regina.

Would you have any other info on John Janisch?
The dates seem to match up for my 2nd great grandfather. The last censuse I can find him is 1885 in Winsted MN, His wife is widowed in the 1900 censuse.
Thank You
