Index: Pioneer Families of Shippegan

This is a series of micro posts about the pioneers of Shippagan in Gloucester County, New Brunswick. Each post is organized around initial information from Msg. Donat Robichaud’s Le Grand Chipagan: Histoire de Shippagan, supplemented with genealogical data from F. Theriault’s Les Families de Caraquet and is now being gradually enriched with information from other sources. These are mostly French-language sources and some aren’t easily available, so if you need more information please leave your questions in the comment box below  🙂

She lived in Montreal and then last year she went to the States to join her brother who had been living in Maine for 14 years. There she was married. At the beginning of August she needs to return and will pass by Montreal and Boston in order to visit some friends, and then she’ll go to Bangor, Maine where she lives.
