Alyward/Alward/Alyward/Elward – Some Elwards from Ireland to Michigan via Shippegan

Index: Lameque, Miscou and Shippegan

Vic Elward came across my Irish Aylwards of Shippagan article while working on his family genealogy so we’ve been working behind the scenes to document the link between his Michigan Elwards and the Irish Aylwards of Shippegan. In this post we’re sharing a few genealogical notes that connect Elward’s family to the Aylwards through Patrick Aylward/Elward and Celina Landry.

LamequeGuillaume William Aylward, son of John Aylward and Virginie Duguay, was born in 1861 in Shippagan Gloucester. (see link above for previous generations). Guillaume married Marthe Mailloux on 5 Nov 1888 in Gloucester County (New Brunswick).  Marthe was born in 1864 in Gloucester and died after 1911.

These Aylwards can be found in the 1901/1911 Shippegan census. In 1901 Guillaume’s parents John Aylward & Virginie Duguay were living with him – though by 1911 John had passed away and only Virginie remained. Their 1911 household was quite large because in addition to Guillaume & Marthe and their children, and his mother Virginie, there was also Guillaume’s sister Adonise Aylward and her husband Honore Duguay and two children Pierre and Abbe.

Four generations of Aylwards in one house!

Berube, Emond, Roussel Memorial Headstone

This is one of the memorial headstones that I photographed during my genealogical vacation in Riviere-Ouelle a few years ago. It was placed there by the Association des Roussel d’Amerique in honour of Jacques Roussel (1720-1805) and his first and second wives. His wives were  Marie-Genevieve Berube (1731-1766) and Genevieve Gabrielle Emond (1735-1802). The stone also states that Jacques Roussel was from Evran in Bretagne (France). The final inscription at the bottom calls these couples : “the ancestors of the Roussels in America”.
