I am looking for information regarding Blanche Eva Marie LaPlant b. October 8, 1896 in Quebec, Canada.Her father and mother are Augustin LaPlant and Esther LeFevre no information on either.Her paternal grandfather was Joseph LaPlant Sr. and her paternal grandmother was Alphousine Valade.

What I know about her was that she was raised in a Catholic convent from the time she was 8 years old on although she had siblings and her parents were still alive.Her father was a journalist and worked for a newspaper.She married Daniel Henry Biles and moved eventually to California where she lived in LaPuente until she died at age 74.

I have looked for information regarding her for 19 years.I have not found anything.Any help would be appreciated.
