Second thoughts…

Note

Even though some people may think I am obsessed with genealogy…

This is a story I won’t be following on this blog…

Instead I wrote it here on Nos ancêtres.

Since I was not the photographer who took the beach pictures I can’t be 100% sure who these people are.

And if the old man with the fedora was Zéphirin Ménard instead of my great-granduncle François-Xavier Lagacé?

Food for  thoughts…

unidentified couple

Well I guess not…

Just having second thoughts…

What about then who’s who on this old pictures…

This is what Réal had to say…

J’ai inscrit des détails sur la photo, mais je vous donne quelques noms ici: à l’arrière de la voiture, de gauche à droite: Joseph Groleau le père (correction: je crois que c’est Benjamin Richer), les enfants de Joseph Groleau et Valentine Richer: Florestine Groleau, Florida Groleau, en avant d’elle son plus jeune frère Adélard, Églantine Groleau, Idaise Groleau. Dans la voiture au volant Oliva Richer, les 2 jeunes femmes à l’arrière je ne suis pas certain…et Osias Richer. Debout en avant à gauche c’est William Richer (l’acteur américain James Franco me fait penser à lui!), ainsi que le plus vieux de la famille, Gilbert Richer fils, à droite. Environ 1918.

Translation

I wrote some details on the picture, but I give you here some of the names: in the back of the car, from left to right: Joseph Groleau le père (correction: I think it’s Benjamin Richer), the children of Joseph Groleau and Valentine Richer: Florestine Groleau, Florida Groleau, in front their youngest brother Adélard, then Églantine Groleau, Idaise Groleau. Behind the wheel Oliva Richer, the two young women in the back I am not certain of… then Osias Richer. In front on the left is William Richer (he looks like James Franco the American actor!), then the eldest in the Richer family, Gilbert Richer Junior, on the right. Picture dated around 1918 [since the young boy Adélard died in 1918]. 

Now this being translated…

Who could be the two unidentified young women in the back?

I think I found the answer in the 1911 Canadian census.
