This is the final resting place of Alice Jeanne Luce, wife of Armand Arseneault. She died On December 26th, 1912 in Bathurst Mines. Alice Jeanne was the daughter of a George Luce and Clementine Silva. I presume – but can’t be 100% sure – that these are my maternal great-grandparents George Hl Luce (son of Philippe Luce and Anne Ward) and Clementine Desilva (Dassylva).
Until now I have only had the following offspring in my database: my grandmother Eveline Melvina, Francois Guillaume, thomas William, Albert Warren, George Lorrain, Charles William, Francois Lamain, Arthur and Lydia Luce.

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.

This is a 20th century, black and white Canadian National Railways postcard of the pulp mill in Bathurst, New Brunswick.
This is a rather mangled, black & white postcard of the Bathurst bridge in the early twentieth century which I’m sharing with you because there are so few early views of Bathurst online. I would love to hear from anyone who can help me date this bridge – or who can tell me the relationship – if any – between this Bathurst bridge and this other bridge in Bathurst.
Comment from Leo – Thanks!
Both the “BATHURST, N. B. FROM BRIDGE” postcard and the “Busy Bathurst, New Brunswick — 11.” postcard show the same bridge over the Tetagouche River. The Busy Bathurst postcard is a panoramic view of the bridge taken from a high place, such as the roof of a building or a hilltop. The photographer that created the image on the postcard featured in this post was actually located on the bridge, just past the central arches (so they would not obstruct the view). I am providing a composite image, showing the relationship between these two views, here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/37403014@N05/4448565122/
I had actually noticed the similarity in the white buildings on the opposite shore, to the left of the bridge, but the bridge in the coloured image looked so much larger than this one. I’ve really learned something here about how different things can look from different camera angles. Thank you very much!
