Valley, Theriault | Lameque Headstone


This is the final resting place of Olivier Vallee in Petite-Riviere-de-l’Ile Cemetery in Shippegan. Olivier’s parents were Alexis Vallee and Catherine Pineau who had married in Perce (Gaspe,Quebec) in 1819. He’s quite possibly the Olivier Valley who died at the age of 87 years old on May 12th, 1912.

Olivier married Anastasie Theriault (daughter of Tranquil/Aime Theriault and Julie Brideau) on May 28th, 1854 in Caraquet, Gloucester, New Brunswick, Canada.

The couple’s children included: Anne Rose, Olivier D., Tranquil, Joseph, Bernard, Marie, Alexandre Barthelemi, Felix, Pierre, Mary and Margaret. Their daughter Anne Rose Vallee married Philippe Luce and Anne Ward’s son Philip Charles Luce.

In this way, the Vallees are intertwined with both my  Jersey Luces and my  Caraquet Theriaults.
