Posted on a genealogy forum in 2001…
I’m looking for the marriage of Denis Stanislas Deschênes and Abbie Oakes. The children names I have. Denis Jan. 31,1885 and Rosilee June 5,1890 birthplace Patten Maine. I have an other girl birthplace Fort Kent Maine Dec.5,1882. Abbie birthplace St Francis Maine. Stanislas Denis Deschênes Miville, had a other wife before Abbie, her name was Obéline Lévesque. If Somebody have something on this family please contact me.
To which someone replied…
In his unpublished book, Henry does not give
a marriage date for this couple. (he does
give her parents).
“She refuses to give information, being suspicious of a trick”
If you want more info, send e-mail
The third is the picture I told you about that I received from my Aunt Bertha Roy.
She told me that she was told this was Abbie Oakes a native American princess known as Princess Moon Nickles. Every family has one don’t they?
I showed this picture to a forensic person last year and she compared it with the picture I have a very young Henriette Lavigne Oakes who was married to Electrus, Alexis Oakes. She told me the bone structure of the two women were quite similar but she could not say for sure if the two are the same person.
It would be great to identify the couple.
