Re: Faucher's in Mass

In Reply to: Faucher's in Mass by Roberta Cutcher-Faucher of 174

Hi Roberta:
I just saw your post here. Reo, I believe, is buried in Springfield Massachusetts. Carol is buried there, too. Violet lived and worked in Springfield for a vast portion of her younger years. You might want to do some searching in the Springfield, Mass area via the internet. Violet's mother's name was Edith Perry and her father was Michael Laporte. Edith was born in Trois Riviere, Quebec, Canada. (Now Called by the English Name---Three Rivers). Edith Perry-Laporte was born in 1880 and died in 1958. Michael LaPorte (Violet's father) was born in 1875 and died in 1931. They are both buried in Redford Cemetery in Redford, New York (the Catholic Cemetery).
Here is another clue that might help. Violet Faucher lived at 3249 Main Street Springfield Massachusetts at one time. Another interesting thing that I am not sure you are aware of is that at one time---long before she married Reo---Violet had gone to the convent with an intention of becoming a nun, but because of her small stature and because she became physically unwell in the convent--they did not let her take holy orders. I believe that she went into a convent in lower Quebec, but I am unsure of any of the precise details. She left the convent and never returned. Later she married Reo and had Michael and Carol. I hope some of this helps. Email or post if you have any questions. Maybe I can find some answers for you.
