Clara’s Children

Clara would have had four children: William, Freda, Gladys, and Ella.

1911 Clara Doucet

1911 Canadian Census in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia

Ella Madeleine, born in March 1910, died as an infant. I found that information from two sources.

On the Internet…

The person who wrote this seems to known what he or she is talking about.

All the above information is correct, except some birthdates.

Next source, the Mormons’ Website… where I found Ella.

Family Search Ella Melanson 1910

Is Ella the daughter of William Melanson Senior and Clara Doucet? Am I on the right track?

I think so.

So many questions still for my good friend Ron.

And what about Gladys who married Henry H. Gray?

Nothing yet…

And the father William Senior?

A clue found in Aberdeen City, North Dakota, in 1920.

1920 William Melanson North Dakota

1920 William Melanson North Dakota mod

William Melanson, lodger, male, white race, 37, married, immigration in 1883 (false information given?), knows how to read and write, born in Nova Scotia, father and mother also born in Nova Scotia…

It’s probably the same man, but we will never be sure unless someone contacts me one of these days.

Maybe a descendant of William Junior Melanson and Vera Anita Hiatt?

  1. You know Pierre, maybe that the whole family went to the USA while you and I weren’t looking and they left Freda Home Alone.
