This is what I wrote two days ago to Mike Phillips…about Anita Blais.
Mike had posted this headstone picture.
Are you related?
I have some of her ancestors.
Anita was the daughter of Clarence Wallace Blais, the son of Paul Blais and Maria Spaulding whose parents were Adelphis Spaulding and Lucie Aubé, daughter of Urbain Aubé and Lucie Trudeau.
Lucie Aubé was Alphonse Aubey’s sister…
Alphonse was living in 1910 with his niece Marie Spaulding and her husband Paul Blais.
Mike had also this picture.
Small world isn’t?
What about Paul Blais, Head, male, 44, Canada?
I thought you would never ask…
Mike has not replied yet to my message I left on Find a Grave.
I just had to look for Urbain Aubé’s family and little Alphonse last Sunday morning.
The problem was not looking for them, but to stop looking for other unknown people I had found along the way.
The only thing I could find about Alphonse Aubé was this Alphonse Aubey in Rhode Island in 1910.
1910 U.S. census
Were all these people related?
Alphonse Aubey, 58, a widower, born in Canada, a boarder in Paul Blais’ home.
Who was Clarence Aubey, boarder, male, 13, born in Rhode Island?
Who was Lucy Aubey, daughter, female, 31, born in New York?
The key to this enigma was Maria Blais, wife, female, 42, born in Canada…
Stay tuned…if you’re the curious type.

I have no idea who is Arthur Lefoley…
