If one of your ancestors was Genevieve Hogue or her mother Ellen Elizabeth Doucette… this picture is free!
It was taken on April 14, 1909 in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
Little Genevieve seen with her mother was born on November 12, 1908 so Genevieve is 5 months and 2 days old give or take a few hours.
The picture above is really about the wedding picture of this couple.
I have been working hard to identify all these people since 2009. Only one person was identified!
In 2011 I had help from a reader related to Ida Levasseur, Bernadette’s sister. That person told me Bernadette was not Jean-Marie Hogue’s daughter but was her niece. Bernadette’s parents were already deceased.
The picture belongs to Cécile Guénette Hogue. She lives in Ste-Anne-des-Plaines. I had known Cécile for quite sometimes. She was a substitute teacher at my school. When I was absent she was the substitute teacher I wanted to have her in my classroom.
I always treated her fine and my students knew how to behave when I had to be absent.
I retired from teaching in June 2004 then went back to university full-time to get a D.E.S.S. in translation.
Then in 2007 I got addicted to genealogy and old pictures.
In June 2009 Cécile wanted to show me some old pictures.
She had this old picture from her husband’s old family album, and it was that picture that made me create this blog in the first place to seek descendants of these people.
I have found some descendants but not in the U.S.
This would be too long story to explain.
Getting back to Genevieve…
I did not know Arthur Hogue’s wife’s name.
Arthur was the son of Jean-Marie Hogue.
Jean-Marie was this man’s brother. He’s Napoléon Hogue the only person we could identify back in 2009.
Both men are on the wedding picture.
This is their father’s picture.
This man is Jean-Marie Hogue Senior.
He was half-blind…
So what about Genevieve Hogue?
You tell me because I know a lot about her ancestors but not much on her.
