The Noels | Pioneers of Caraquet

Index: Pioneer Families of Caraquet


These micro posts present the first generations 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.

 

 

Samuel Noel (son of Jean Noel and Cecile Chiasson) and Victoire Pinet (daughter of Placide Pinet and Marie-Angelique Roy) had the following children:

  • Marie Adeline,
  • Gustave (m. Madeleine Guignard, daughter of Charles Guignard and Marcelline Duguay),
  • Ubald,
  • Marie Adeline,
  • Marie (m.  Joseph Lanteigne, son of Augustin Lanteigne and Odile Gionet),
  • Marie Cecile,
  • Appoline,
  • Joseph Vital Lange (m. Marie Victorine Lanteigne, daughter of Eugene Lanteigne and Genevieve Mercier).

These are recent photographs I’ve taken of headstones of the nearby Catholic Cimetière de la Paroisse Saint-Clément.  This is the older of two Catholic cemeteries in Beauharnois (Quebec) and contains remains from a still older cemetery.
