Shirley Blake relationship to Leo Paul 1956
Posted by: Donna Milano (ID *****0698) Date: October 16, 2012 at 08:17:17

My ancestor, Leo J. Paul, was born in Spencer, Mass., in 1898. By 1930, he was living in Roxbury, NH (I have done extensive research on him and his family and don't need any of that info).

This is what I'm curious about:

In 1956, Leo Paul purchased five adjoining plots in St. Joseph’s Cemetery on Main St. in Keene, N.H. A female named Shirley Blake was buried in one of those plots in 1956. The cemetery had no information pertaining to her age and only had the year of death, no exact. Since I don't know when or where she was born, nor whether BLAKE was her given surname or married surname, so I don't know where to begin to find a birth record.

It doesn't appear that Leo and his wife had any children, so I don't believe Shirley was their daughter.

Leo Paul died in 1981. His wife Marie Germaine (Provencher) Paul, died on August 8, 1991. Leo and Germaine were buried in two of the four remaining plots in St. Joseph’s Cemetery.

The remaining two plots that Leo purchased in 1956 are still empty as of this year. I haven't been able to find any records at all for a Shirley Blake that I can connect to Leo or his wife, nor do I know who was intended to use the two plots that remain empty.

Does anyone know who this Shirley Blake was?
