Father Adélard and Father Joseph

Post No. 4


This article is not about Celine Dion’s ancestors…

It’s about Father Adélard Chaumont and Father Joseph Chaumont who were born in Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines.

I just knew I had to stop doing the dishes and go see Paul-Émile Chaumont.

Monsieur Chaumont had this picture. I had to take a picture of that picture. I did not know why but I took it. In fact, I love old pictures, but I did not know what I would discover. The picture is fuzzy, but monsieur Chaumont’s picture is clearer.

Doris posted this photo on her Website Sunday morning…

Then I started thinking.

famille Chaumont-Therrien

They are the children of Mathilde Therrien and Calixte Euchariste Chaumont. Two missionaries are sitting in the front row with their older sister Mathilde Chaumont on the left and Calixte II on the right. Their parents are dead otherwise they would be in the picture.

Here is Father Joseph Chaumont. This time he is in Manitoba probably in the 1920s…


The caption said that Father  Joseph Chaumont is behind the nun…

The picture was taken from this Website.

This is a mosaic sent to me by Yvon Lauzon last year. We find Father Joseph Chaumont once again.

The year is when he became a priest. This is his brother Adélard.

Here is once again the old picture I took a picture of.

famille Chaumont-Therrien

What I know is that Calixte Chaumont and Mathilde Therrien had these children: Joseph, Adélard, Calixte, Napoléon, Moïse, Clodomir, Mathilde, Azélie et Léontine. There is also another Joseph born in 1860 but who died in 1867.

In 1881, this is what we see in the census record.

Mathilde is a widow. She lives in Ste-Anne-des-Plaines with her sons Calixte, Napoléon, Adélard, Joseph and her two daughters Azélie and Léontine. I found the Chaumonts in the 1901 Census again in Ste-Anne-des-Plaines.

Clodomir is 25 and lives with his brother Napoléon. There is a Narcisse Chartrand who is an orphan. Calixte, Napoléon’s and Clodomir’s brother is the next door neighbour…

Mathilde Therrien is not in the 1901 census. Tomorrow I will have another picture of Adélard Chaumont to show you.
