About Délia, Élise and Joséphine Dubé

It has been quite a busy week genealogy wise. First it was about Pamela Dubé

Pamela Dubé 1863-1946

Then a request about Firmin

Then Sadie Burby

Then a descendant who wrote a comment about his great-grandfather on the French version of this blog.

These are five photos from Lionel Lagasse’s collection of old pictures. The young woman is his mother Marie-Louise Dubé.


Lionel’s son Dennis had shared more than 100 old photos on Our Ancestors since 2011. This next photo is not from him, but from Claude Leblanc who last week saw my French version of Our Ancestors.

He wrote a comment telling me his great-grandfather was Pierre Dubé and his great-grandmother was Emma Sévigny. They were Marie-Louise Dubé’s parents.

Claude did not know about Marie-Louise, but he knew all about Pierre Dubé and Emma Sévigny seen on the left with Olive Dubé on one of Lionel’s collection of old pictures.

But is the young woman really Olive Dubé or could she be Diana Dubé?

Délia, Élise and Joséphine Dubé were Marie-Louise Dubé’s sisters seen here in the middle of this next photo with two unidentified young women.

In Lionel’s collection there was this photo where he had identified Diana as the woman holding up the child, his mother Marie-Louise sitting and Olive behind a little girl.

He had also this one photo showing what he told me were John Daly and Diana Dubé in Val-Racine.

I am no longer sure that Diana Dubé is the woman holding a small child in her arms and Olive is Olive.Daly and-Dubé family

Instead the sister holding the child would be Joséphine Dubé who is seen here sitting on the right with her sisters Délia on the left and Élise in the middle.Dubé-3soeurs

Behind Joséphine is her husband Arthur Dupuis. The little guy with the cap would be Joseph Dupuis. His younger brother Alphonse would be on the left with the white hat. Alphonse Dupuis was the son of Arthur Dupuis and Joséphine Dubé. He later  married Annette Dumoulin, born in Notre-Dame-des-Bois in 1914.

Annette Dumoulin I found her last week on Find a Grave.

Annette A. Dupuis 1914 -2010 Brunswick – Annette A. Dupuis 96, of Sunny Brook Village, 340 Bath Rd. Brunswick, Maine; formerly of Rumford, Maine died. She was born in Notre Dame des Bois, Canada. She was the daughter of the late Hermidas and Sara Lussier Dumoulin and was married to Alphonse Dupuis who was deceased in January of 1977. She was also the sister of Armand Dumoulin formerly of Rumford. Mrs. Dupuis was a former member of St. John’s and St. Athanasius Parish and enjoyed cooking, knitting, quilting, playing cribbage, and loved cooking for large family gatherings.

She was the bookkeeper for the family logging company and cook for the log crew. She also did the accounting for Mount Zircon Spring Water Company, Inc. which was purchased by she and her husband in 1941 and owned until 1986.

Annette will be remembered for her loving and caring ways; and her devotion to her family, and the catholic religion. She prayed continuously for all of us. She is survived by 4 daughters, Huguette and husband Eugene of Bethel, Maine; Claire and daughter Kimberly of Bowdoinham, Maine; Diane and husband William of Bedford, New Hampshire; MarieLouise and her son Pete of Bath, Maine.

She was predeceased by her daughter Jacqueline Stone and her son Richard Dupuis.

The family wishes to thank Sunnybrook Village staff for their loving care during her last several years and Hospice volunteers for the care and support during her last hours. We are all very appreciative for all you’ve done!

Burial at Saint John’s Cemetery.

Donations in Mrs. Dupuis memory may be made to CHANS Hospice Volunteers in Brunswick, Maine.
