Ovila Turgeon, Napierville, Quebec Turgeons
Posted by: Jeannette Dumas (ID *****7383) Date: April 02, 2004 at 11:57:46

I am looking for any ancestral info relating to my great-grandfather, Ovila Turgeon's family origins. Specifically, I am trying to locate the names of his parents and any siblings. Ovila Turgeon was born in Napierville, Quebec on Dec. 13,1880 (although his tombstone says he was born in 1864...?). Which of the 2 is correct has not yet been determined. He died in Chicopee Falls, MA on July 31,1930. His wife was Exilda (St.Onge), also born in Canada. Ovila and Exilda emigrated to the US in 1898.

Their children: Marie Anne (Turgeon) LaPerle (my grandmother), Ovila Turgeon (Jr.), Eusebe Turgeon, Josephine A. (Turgeon) Broughear,Adeline (Turgeon) LaPerle, and Azilda (Turgeon) Jette. I haven't been able to trace this side of my family lineage any further back than Ovila.

Would appreciate any info.
