Message Board Post:
I'm trying to find any information on any of the three daughters born to Joseph Zephirin DESROCHERS (b. 1884 Quebec) & Mary Elizabeth 'Millie' FIDLER (b. 1876 Manitoba) We are working on a DESROCHERS family history for the family celebration in Aug 2009 of two memebers' 100th birthdays.
I don't have too much I can tell anyone but what I know so far is this:
Millie & Joseph weren't married but lived together and had three daughters. All I have for them is -
Rose married a man named Kelly TOWLE and in the 1950's lived in Alberta.
Bertha married a man named Robert 'Bob' JACKSON.
Dorothy or Catherine...not sure of her name....never married.
I don't have birth years for these women but I speculated that the earliest birth may have been around 1903 -1904 when Joseph would have been about 20 years of age. The latest birth would have been before Jun 1919 when Millie married.
Millie married 14 Jun 1919 to Alfred J. La FLEUR in Stonewall, Manitoba. (Date of Marriage: 14/06/1919
Place of Marriage: STONEWALL Registration Number: 1919,033368 ~ http://vitalstats.gov.mb.ca/Query.php)
Millie died in 1922* and is buried with her parents Alexander 'Sandy' FIDLER (b. 11 Sept 1835 St. James, Winnipwg RRS/MB d. 19 Dec 1918 St. Laurent, MB Registration Number: 1918,072507)and Mary Ann LINKLATER (b. 4 July 1844 St Andrews, Lisgar, Manitoba d. 31 Aug 1928 St. Boniface Hospital, Winnipeg, MB Registration Number: 1928,039065)
They are buried in St George's Anglican Cemetery, Woodlands, Manitoba. The headstone says "FIDLER" and the first name listed is Mary Elizabeth 'Millie' La FLEUR
*Millie - DOD: 22/03/1922;Place of Death: St. James
Registration Number: 1922,014538 ~ http://vitalstats.gov.mb.ca/Query.php
I don't know if Rose, Bertha & Dorothy/Catherine used the surname FIDLER or DESROCHERS or were possibly adopted by Millie's husband and used La FLEUR.
Can anyone help with providing any information on these ladies?
