Evelyn In Montreal: Mary Martha Doucet of Bathurst, N.B. (Pt.1)

Stephen Benton says:

My maternal grandmother was Mary Martha Doucet born in 1898 in Bathurst, NB. Per my mother, I know there were approx 5 children in the family.  All females had the first name of Mary, and I believe they were generally addressed by their middle name. There was only one brother, Simon.  I would much like to learn the name of her parents and any other info on the family.  Mary Martha Doucet married in Canada and emigrated to USA in 1925. I am 52 y/o and live in Louisiana, USA.

  1. Martha (Lavigne) Doucet, married to Albert Doucet was born in 1921.
    daughter of Frances Doucet,(married to Frank Lavigne) was happy to see this site. She is the grand-daughter of Theodore & Bessie (Elizabeth) Doucet.
    She is related to Mone (Martha) Cooper and Nellie Mahonney who moved to the states.
    She believes that Theodore’s father was known as Mariner as they called him “Theodore a Marin” in french
    Frances,her mother, died at 87 years of age. You seem to be missing a sister named Pauline who was born between Tillie (Elizabeth) and Simon.
    Pauline, Tillie and Simon never married.
    Mom is visiting me in Ontario at the present.
