Does anyone have any information on my great-grandparents, William Arthur Bilodeau, Sr. and Bertha Williams? They were briefly together in North Carolina (Fayetteville area) and had three children: Richard Thomas Bilodeau (b.1928, d.1993) from Baltimore; William Arthur Bilodeau, Jr. (d.1969)from North Carolina; and Lillian Bilodeau Brunson (d.1999) of Fayetteville - she's buried in the Cross Creek Cemetary with late husband Robert Brunson.
Bertha Williams went on to marry Charles Vinson Koonce of Fayetteville. They are both buried in the Cross Creek Cemetary. I don't know who Bertha's parents are, nor do I know who my Great-grandfather Bilodeau's parents are. I don't even know when he was born or where he was from. I'd love some information.
My great-grandfather Bilodeau married a woman named Gladys. They lived in Spring Lake around the 1930's. They had two children named Richard Thomas Bilodeau (d.1997) and Judy Bilodeau Davis. William supposedly died in the early 60's (1963 or 1964). Gladys remarried a man named Chuck Sweeney.
I've got cousins out there I've never met. I'd love a reunion. There's a Gina Stallings out there who is supposedly my great-grandmother's daughter also. I have no information on her either.
