The Beaulieus | Pioneers of Caraquet

Caraquet PioneersThe Caraquet Beaulieus  descend from three marriages: Olivier Beaulieu and his first wife Marguerite Laviolette, and second wife Scholastique Mallet, daughter of Jean Mallet and Anne Gionet) and his third wife Henriette Martin. It’s believed that Olivier Beaulieu was a Quebec fisherman and was probably from Kamouraska.

Olivier Beaulieu and Marguerite Laviolette had only one child – Marie (m. Dosithee Comeau, daughter of Athanase Comeau and Madeleine Thibodeau).

Olivier and his second wife Scholastique Mallet had three children: Angele (m. Daniel Savoie, formerly married to Osithe Saint-Pierre), Marie (m. Vital Paulin) and Jean.

Oliver’s third wife Henriette Martin (widow of Pierre Allaire) gave him two children – Marie Henriette and Marie Emond. Continue reading

Non-Natives on Native Reserves

FAH_VoyageursWhile transcribing First People surnames for the census project, I frequently come across non-Natives who were living on Canadian Indian Reserves or other areas inhabited by First Peoples. I’ve decided to collate them into one list and this is where you’ll find it!  Unfortunately, many of the original records are close to unintelligible so, where possible I’ve cross referenced them with other written records, but it’s not always possible to find the correct surname. For that reason, this is primarily a Finding Aid so I’ve included the direct links to the Census so you can verify the information for yourself. If you’re able to correct or add to the entries I hope you’ll do so by leaving information in the comment box below. Thanks!

Who Was Caughnawaga Shoemaker Aurele Beaulieu?

And who’s this little girl?

Well, if you were living in Caughnawaga in the late ’40s then you would have known her as Marie Therese Varin, but today she goes by the name Nedra (Broden) Rich – and Nedra is on an important quest. Please read her story below and see if you can help us  uncover some hidden parts of her past – a past which connects with  that of Aurele Beaulieu of Caughnawaga.

Marie Therese’s story begins in 1947 when she was born (probably at home in Caughnawaga) to Aurele Beaulieu and Marie Aurore Rolande Varin. She lived in Caughnawaga from 1947 to 1950 along with her brother Joseph Willie Henri Beaulieu.

However, the Beaulieu home was not just a home; it was also the location of Aurele Beaulieu‘s shoemaking business.

Another piece of information is that the Beaulieu family had  friends in Kahnawake which included an Ida Dubo and Rose (?). Continue reading
