Wow, this is getting interesting. You mentioned Mr. Merritt, supposedly Julie's father, died when she was 10 and that maybe one of the Davis realative adopted her.

Couple of questions. Do you know if Julie's mother was also dead? Does the book mention if Julie went to Canada?

I do have information somewhere of the family that adopted her in Canada. I'll have to dig that up and check it.

No one in the family ever knew the names of Julie's birth parents. As far as my father knew, Fred Thorn was just a friend of the family. It would be a major breakthrough if it turned out the Thorn's were realted.

The only thing in the way of this is Julie was very French. What I mean is, my father said she and he husband Anthony (Antoine) often spoke french around the house. They were from New Brunswick. It seems if Julie was born here and didn't go to Canada until she was 10, she would lean to english and not french.

Julie and Anthony spoke french so often, my father picked up some, although he forgot most of it over the years. He even said teachers would get upset because the Robichaud kids (6 of them) would often drop the "s" on plural words, which he said his parents did when they spoke english.
