I don't have a name for Mederic's wife. My mother, now 82 can't recall it. Her father was Norbert Rivard, born Sept. 14, 1872 in Batiscan. He went by the name of Albert for some reason. His wife was Louisa Kent, born May 31, 1885. They lived in Port McNicol after their marriage. My mother (Mary Rivard/Gauthier)recalls her grandfather coming to live with them in his old age and dying at their home when she was a young girl. Since my mother was born in 1918, we can assume Mederic would have died around 1925, give or take a few years. I've just recently moved back to Canada after a number of years in the states. I hope to travel to the Port McNicol area this summer to visit the old homestead and check the cemetary there. Any information you have on Rivards would be greatly appreciated.
