Sunday Morning – Frank Lemire, Adeline Larose, and Florinda Blanche Lemire

How I came to be interested with Scholastique Maher will have to wait a little or maybe I will never tell you how I came to get interested in ancestors who once lived in Ste-Anne-des-Plaines…

What about Frank Lemire, Adeline Larose and their daughter Florinda?

My brother came to visit me last September. We had talked about many things, and a little about our ancestors. Then my brother talked about his friend Mark who had lost his father last August. I wanted to show my brother how I can find people’s ancestors. I entered Mark’s father, then his grandfather…

Lo and behold, the man on this old picture was Mark’s great-grandfather’s brother Frank Lemire!

This photo was part of Jason West’s collection!

Frank, François or Francis, was Edward Lemire’s brother. Looking more on Family Search I found out that his wife was Adeline Larose, daughter of Joseph Larose and Adéline Chartier.

Lo and behold again…

Adeline was on the right in the first row. This photo was also part of Jason West’s collection!

Here’s another photo of the family this time with the in-laws.


Frank Lemire was behind his wife Adeline on the far right, and I strongly believe Florinda is in front of her mother which would make sense.

Now what about the man on the extreme left?

He is Arthur Julian Myers who is Jason West’s grandfather.

Arthur Julian’s father was Exurie Myers seen here with the old woman from St-Norbert, Quebec.

My brother and I talked about the joy sharing and leaving something behind when we will be not around anymore.

To be continued…

  1. Hi Pierre, Interesting post, but I think there might be some confusion. Arthur Julian’s father was Arthur Joseph Myers. Perhaps Arthur Joseph is the one in the picture? Any idea on the date of that photo?

  2. Hi, Pierre. My name is Allyson Maynard, my great-grandfather, Edward, was Zéphirin Ménard’s youngest son. Thank you for taking all the time and effort to compile this information. It’s fascinating!

    • I have this…
      When Edward Leon Maynard was born on October 10, 1893, in Canada, his father, Zéphirin, was 33 and his mother, Jane, was 34. He married Lillian Ruth Johnson on June 6, 1917, in Plainville, Connecticut, USA. They had three children during their marriage. He died on February 27, 1973, at the age of 79.

    • There was a younger one…
      When Adlord F. Maynard was born on February 25, 1898, in Canada, his father, Zéphirin, was 38 and his mother, Jane, was 38. He married Doris Muto on April 23, 1919. He died on November 27, 1962, at the age of 64.
