Catherine Tourville, Marquett, MI 1911
Posted by: Stephen Fortin (ID *****4389) Date: January 17, 2010 at 10:37:31
  of 151


My Grandomther was Catherine Tourville who marrieid Edward Fortin in Marquette, MI. I have found much information on my grandfather and his family, born from Napoleon Fortin and Amelia Roy/Roi 1911 in Marquette but not finding much for Catherine Tourville.
Does anyone have information on the Tourville family in Marquette in the early 1900's and where they were from? My understanding is both of her parents were born French Canadian as were my gradfather Edward's.
I understand that Catherine's father (? Tourville) was a commercial fisherman in Marquette that died in Lake Superior when Catherine was a young girl. His boat was named "Katherine" after his wife. Her mother Katherine remairried to (first name?) Couvion* who adopted Catherine. That is about all I have to start with.

Thanks if you can help,
Stephen Fortin
