Mission Impossible IV – Part Two

The Brault name struck a cord when I was searching for French-Canadian names with Joe in St. Joseph  Cemetery  in Bristol. So I took three pictures just to be sure I could read the names later.

Elmire Brault’s name was easy to read, but her husband’s name was hard to clearly  see.

I could make out Fanie Lupien, but it looked like Fannie, a woman’s name.

So I got thinking… and thinking, and looking…

Lo and behold Fanie Lupien’s name was somewhere on a list!

Mission Impossible IV – Part One

I never plan before writing something on this blog.

I don’t know if someone or something is guiding me…

I just write like hell!

Walking through a cemetery in 2013 with cousin Joe led me to Steve Myers and also to Jason West.

I still had many headstone pictures taken from that cemetery that I would have liked to try searching for descendants of the deceaded knowing how precious this would have been  if someone should be finding his or her ancestors through Our Ancestors.

This being said…

I am reposting it because someone answered my call for the headstones she posted on Find A Grave.

Lisa took those pictures and she allowed me to post them on the blog.

She took those pictures in Mount Calvary Cemetery, a cemetery in New Hampshire.

These pictures were a great help in finding Irene’s ancestors and descendants.

Irene Wilcox

Collection Jason West

Irene was the daughter of Adélard or Théodore Turcotte who changed his name to Wilcox. I don’t know why Adélard Turcotte used that name since it does not sound a bit like Turcotte.

Maybe it does if you say Turcotte fast enough.

This being said, start reading the old post I wrote back in December when I first contacted Jason, and make sense of all this.

The pictures in this post were an incredible find. I obtained them by contacting a person who had a family tree listed in ancestry.com. While it was not very complete, it held some information that caught my interest. I sent a request to the tree owner asking if we could exchange information. I believe this is something we all should do as it helps us all in our genealogy research. I cannot understand why some of us are so reluctant to share our information. This time however I hit the genealogy jackpot. I was soon put in touch with Julia, who was the keeper of the family records. She was to send me old family letters, pictures, property transfer…
