Julie's mother survived. She is buried in the cemetery, as
Merritt's wife. However, I did not find her in the Maine
Censuses of 1900, 1910 and 1920. The Anthoine Robichaud's, in the
1920 census, show French as the main tongue, but both are checked for speaking and writing English. They were bilingual!
French people will always speak French, even when they know
English.
I suspect that Julie and her mother went to Canada shortly after her father died. Do you know where they were in Canada?
There is an article on the Thorne family in Early Families of Standish, Maine by Albert J. Sears. I also have some info, but
I didn't have your Merritt. That name was continued, as I knew
a Merritt Thorne when I was a child.
