The Carons | Pioneers of Caraquet

Index: Pioneer Families of Caraquet


These micro posts present the first generation of each of the families that established different surnames found in Caraquet, New Brunswick. Most of the information is drawn from Fidele Theriault’s genealogical dictionary “Les Familles de Caraquet”. His book is in French and offers a lot more information including family trees of the first generations (with precise dates)  and in many cases explanations of how the first pioneers arrived in Caraquet and other fascinating anecdotes. If you don’t have access to the book you can contact me for extra information by leaving a comment underneath this post.

 

Marcel Caron and his first wife Rosalie Vicq were the earliest Caraquet Carons. Marcel was from the Jersey Islands. He was a blacksmith and tinsmith. The couple were married in 1886. Marcel next married Marie Paulin (daughter of Gervais Paulin and Marie Doiron). In 1881 he was living with his family in the home of Gervais H. Lanteigne and a fellow Jersey Islander by the name of John Lloyd. he later became the owner of what had been the English school and turned it into a home.

 

Marcel Caron and Rosalie Vicq’s children were:

  • Georges Josue
  • Anne Louise (m.1901, Andre Arsenault, son of Vital Arsenault and Louise Ferguson)
  • Marie Josephine Aimee (d.1886)
  • Leontine F. Lanteigne (adopted daughter) (m. 1921Elie H. Cormier, son of Honore Cormier and Charlotte Doiron)

This series of  Early French Canadian Pioneers  microposts is dedicated to the earliest settlers of Quebec. If you are new to the genealogy of French-speaking Canadians, please be aware that the earliest French settlers can also descend from the Acadian pioneers who originally settled in what are now Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In addition, please note that any Native related links refer back to other posts citing census, marriage or other documents with indigenous or Metis individuals of that surname, however those individuals do not necessarily descend from those particular French Canadian settlers.

Comment from Richard H. Hill

My wife and I recently purchased two unique hand-carved lamps created by P.E. Caron, so found this postcard unbelievably fascinating.  Both lamps have tree trunks which support the shade, one features a woman baking bread in an oven with a steep-pitched roof, and the other features a man carring water from a well with a pitched roof in two buckets supported by a wooden bar across his shoulders.  The quality of the carving is detailed and excellent.  The lamps will become a focal point of the living room in a home we recently purchased on Crystal Lake in Beulah, Michigan, so we would love to know more about Mr. Caron, and the town that he lived in.  We understand from the advertising that he created woodcarvings during the period from 1940 to 1960.
