Researching descendants of Marie Rose Laramee & 2nd husband, William St. Germain of Manitoba, Canada; located around the Winnipeg area.
One of her daughters b. 1948 married 1st to a Gary George Courneya and then married 2nd a Gordon Francis Moxley for whom I find locations in CA: Ramona, Pine Valley, Lakeside, El Cajon, & Jamul after Minneapolis, MN in 1979 .
The older dau. b. abt. 1942 married to Jerry Lewis Biggar for whom I find addys abt. 20 yrs old both in Las Vegas, NV & Apply Valley, CA after Manhattan, KS in 1979.
I would like to get in touch with either Mrs. Biggar nee St. Germain, her sister Mrs. Moxley (former Courneya) nee St. Germain or descendants to discuss the mutual family tree.
The daughters St.Germain's mother M. Rose:
b. 10 Jan 1910 North Providence, Rhode Island, USA although the family may not know this & thinks she was born in Drummondville, Québec where the family lived before migrating to Manitoba.
M. Rose's much older sister was married & living in North Providence at the time & due to have her first child early in 1910. M. Rose's parents, Herménégilde & Odélie Laramée came down from Drummondville, Qué for this & were Godparents to this sister's child born about a month later, also in North Providence, 23 Feb 1910.
The only record of M. Rose's birth is found in the baptismal records of the former St. Lawrence RC Church, North Providence, RI.
M. Rose married first to Joseph Conrad Lacroix 23 Nov 1926 St. Eustache, RM Cartier, MB & had 3 children: Living Daughter; Aurele Wilfrid b. 16 Feb 1928 Baie St. Paul, MB d. 5 Dec 2003 Winnipeg, MB & Estelle Claire (married) Piper b. MB d. 2 Sep 2005 Winnipeg, MB.
M. Rose married next to Mrs. Biggar & Mrs. Moxley's father, William St. Germain in Pigeon Lake, RM St-François-Xavier, MB sometime after 1940 & before 1942. They had Mrs. Moxley b. abt. 1942 and Mrs. Biggar in 1948.
The obituary of M. Rose in 1979 has daughter Mrs. Moxley married to her first husband, Gary Courneya & living Minneapolis, MN and Mrs. Biggar living in Manhattan, KS.
The next family obit in 2003 has Mrs. Biggar still as Mrs. Biggar but has her sister, the former Mrs. Gary Courneya, now married to Jerry Lewis Biggar.
Research on Bigger places this couple in Las Vegas, NV & Apple Valley, CA after Manhattan, KS.
Research on Moxley places this couple in a variety of CA locations -Ramona, Pine Valley, Lakeside, El Cajon, & Jamul. after Minneapolis, MN.
Can anyone help?
