Oh Geez, I'm a Hot Mess
:D :D

I'm such a butt head.

It's Our Lady of Hope in BrownsTOWN - I really should get some sleep before posting! :D

Later! :)

Please, don't report me to the site mods for triple posting! LOL!! XD

Primeau Palooza Part II

Sorry! My keyboard is really goofy ... well, so is the keyboard operator! :D Did not mean to hit enter so quickly.

The Primeaus at Our Lady of Hope are:

Frank L. Primeau
1891 - 1972

Helen I. Primeau
1903 - 1982

I have no clue if there are other Primeaus at Our Lady of Hope, I just happened across the above two, while cleaning. So weird! And obviously, there's no guarantee they're related to you, but it's still cool. :)

I'm so sorry, but I really have to scoot; I'll get you the names of Holy Sepulchre's Primeau by tomorrow. (And my sincerest apologies for spelling your family name wrong in that first post - fat "enter" finger to blame, no disrespect intended.)

Later. :)

It's a Primeau Palooza!!
Whoa Nelly!! Are you ready to have your mind blow?! :) Totally good news, but sadly, my time is extremely tight - I do apologize. :(

I have quite a few more Primeaus to add; the very friendly office worker was not there on Saturday, but we still got very lucky. :)

Have you seen the memorial for Sr. Tarcisius?

You'll note some inconsistencies between her stone and the data here @ Find A Grave. Holy Sepulchre also has a few differences. Not sure how one determines the accurate naming; should we contact
Mr. Krzeszowski and ask for an edit? (Had a hard time tracking her down through the office, due in part to the name issue; most likely a common issue w/ nuns.)

Here's a totally weird item: I had a photo request at Our Lady of Hope in Brownstone (about 25 miles south of Holy Sepulchre). I always check out the surrounding stones, to look for other possible family members .... and you guessed it!! MORE PREMEAUS!!!

I haven't found all the other stones, yet, so I can't give you official dates (just interment dates, right now.)

RE: Primeau Headstones
Hi. :)

My tentative plan is to go into the office this Saturday w/ the list of names we know and see if the office staff can tell us if there are any more family members.

There's a VERY friendly and helpful young woman that I usually talk to on the phone on Saturday - HOPEFULLY she'll be there this weekend. So much of the background work is based on the helpfulness of the office; it's so cool to find one that's willing to help.

My work schedule can get iffy (notice of weekend hours is usually last minute) so it might not happen this weekend. But we only have a couple months before the first freeze, so it'd be cool to talk w/ her as soon as possible.

Have you seen Mary Primeau's nemorial? If you make Harry's memorial, I can add his photo. :)

Thanks & Later. :)

RE: Primeau Headstones
Hi. :)

I asked Holy Sepulchre about Miss Cecilia's stone, and they said she should have one.

They also mentioned that she's buried in the same plot as Mr. Edward.

I have no clue how they keep their records, but I wonder if the record will just indicate a stone present at a grave; therefore, Mr. Edward's stone will show up for Miss Cecilia (they said both names might be present, but we know that's not the case).

I wasn't comfortable questioning them too much further, because I didn't want to intrude into your family's business.

They also mentioned the possibility that her stone may have some grass overgrowth, but I pushed my grass clippers down into the ground and didn't hit anything (they're almost 6 inches long).

I have a similar photo for Miss Cecilia, as Miss Viola has; I'll add the photo once you make her memorial.

If you're comfortable w/ me approaching the office about the stone, please, let me know, OK? I just don't want to intrude.

Thanks & Later. :)

RE: Primeau Headstones
Oh my goodness, you're more than welcome. I thank you for being so gracious and letting me share in your joy. :) This has just been a wonderful experience. :)

I still have to get Miss Viola and Mr. Edward's photo plus I'll stop in at the office and ask about Miss Cecilia's stone.

I apologize for the delay, but the cemetery was just a mess this weekend. I was picking up major branches everywhere! One huge tree was down and unfortunately, some stones were lifted w/ it.

Thanks & Later.

RE: Primeau Family - Holy Sepulchre

This weather is wreaking havoc w/ my connectivity. I'm trying to get the photos in, but I can't stay connected long enough for the photos to download.

I'm so sorry for this delay. It's been one wacky summer down this way.

Perhaps my luck will be better tomorrow.

Later. :)

RE: Primeau Family - Holy Sepulchre
:) :) :)

Oh my stars! I'm so beyond happy this has worked out so well! Totally cool!

I just got home from work and I have to rush back out to take someone to the doctors, but I had to check in, just to see. Just totally cool! :)

It may be Friday when the photos are posted - so sorry for this delay, but the rain this week kind of backed up my plans.

Later. :)
