Louis Malo and Sarah (Harriett) Vandale Family Revisited

Tom Brummett sent me the information below on the Louis Malo and Sarah/Harriett/Henriette Vandal family. Thanks Tom! 

Elmira (Lafond) Malo, spouse of Louis Napoleon Malo, date of death 26 February 1949, burial Notre Dame Cemetery, Worcester, MA. Source Worcester, MA death records 1949, #466

Louis Napoleon Malo marriage to Marie Elmire Lafond - 10 September 1886 - Pomfret, Windham, Connecticut. He list his age as 22, she as 21. She misstated her age to avoid parental consent. No license exist, just index entry as CT did not require certificates to be filed until 1888.

Louis Malo - circa 1838

1872 naturalization record is for a different Louis Malo.  I researched the Voluntown vitals and a Louis with a different named wife had children there. (Kim’s Note:  the Louis Malo in Voluntown moved to Massachusetts, he married Marie Alexandrine Herbert)

He and Henriette were in Brimfield, MA in March 1867 as she gave birth to daughter Ellen who died in Putnam in April 1868.

Still at a wall for Louis Malo’s parents names - death certificate list names as "unknown", His marriage took place 3 Sept. 1859 in Putnam, Ct, recorded as general index entries only (no parent info) as CT did not require certificates to be filed until 1888.  St. Mary’s Curch, Putnam, published records start in 1866.  Still some hope there as I found out the church had a mission known as the "Quinnebaug Hall" where they held services, need to find out from the diocese if those records exist and will they share them. 

I suspect Louis came from the St. Ours/Sorel, Richelieu area of Quebec.  Many of the town and church records list that as where various community members came from.  This is common for the mill villages, as the textile mills advertised for workers from Quebec and they seemed to avoid areas where other mills were advertising (honor among thieves I suppose).

Harriet/Henriette Vandale - born 24 May 1850 in St. Ours as Hermine to Pierre Vandal (no 'e', that is a U.S. name variation) and Angeline Poncy dit Dauphine.  I have no idea where Sarah came from in the 1860 Census.

Louis Napoleon Malo - I have birth, children and many residences and occupations, no death yet.  I think it will be in Otsego county NY, because he and Annie Mary are there in 1940 and searches on her indicate she was from there as a young girl/woman.

Elmire Lafond - as she is not a direct descendent, my work has centered on her relationship with Louis N. Malo I have searched in several northeast CT towns and as yet have not located a marriage, theirs may turn out to be a common law marriage.  I have no death date/location yet, but I am convinced it will be Worcester, MA as two of her daughters lived their later years there (Elmire Malo Boivin is buried there).

Elmire Malo Boivin (Aug 1890, Ipswich, MA) - if some researchers have trouble locating her, that's because she was placed with Herod & Adeline Vandal Talbot (her great aunt & uncle) early in life to be raised as their own (see 1890 Census, Thompson, CT. she is 9 years old and listed as their daughter).  I have her vitals from birth to grave and all confirm her identity

Kim's Note:  I have attached some hard to find items, Louis Malo's naturalization record, Harriett (Sarah) Vandale's baptism record, and a copy of the 1860 census with Harriett (Sarah) Vandale.

Louis Hyatt

I found a Civil War record for a Louis Hyatt who was a Private in Company 1 of the 1st Vermont Infantry. He became a prisoner of war at Savage Station. He also joined Company B of the 5th Vermont Infantry, and was part of Winfield Scott Hancock 1st A. C, and was promoted to a Corporal and then Captain. Based on his fighting units, it appears he fought at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, but this needs to be confirmed. I could not help but wonder about this man, what was it like to have been in the Civil War, to be a prisoner of war, who was his family, and was he a Malo. I decided to track this man.

What I found was that Louis was born in 1834 in Marieville, Québec.  His birth name was Louis Ayotte as shown in his birth record below.  His patents, according to this record were Louis Ayotte and Genevieve Harris (1815-1865). Louis’ marriage record to Genevieve gave his surname as Ayet dit Malo! I was then able to trace his family tree to Jean Hayet dit St Malo.

Louis Jr. married and divorced Mary Etta "Mariette" Seeley and they had the following children:

Genevieve Cynthia "Jennie" Hyatt 1870 – 1973
George Lewis Hyatt 1872 – 1949
Charles Frederick "Freddie" Hyatt 1874 – 1964

Helen Maud Hyatt 1877 – 1965

Genevieve Cynthia "Jennie" Hyatt 1870 – 1973

Besides Vermont, Louis also lived in New York and Minnesota. Louis died in Chatfield, Fillmore Co., Minnesota.

The Wives of Honore Malo

Bonjour Cousins!

The other day I was searching for my great uncle, Elzear Malo, from Massachusetts. I found an Elzear in King, Washington.  I was pretty excited, thinking he must have moved ‘west.’ I found though this was not the same person. However, given this was the first Malo family I found in Washington, it was still an interesting find! 

On his Washington death record his mother was given as “Marie Trudeau.” 

Washington, Deaths, 1883-1960 about Elzear Peter Malo
Elzear Peter Malo
Birth Date:
abt 1875
Death Date:
3 Oct 1955
Age at Death:
Death Location:
Seattle, King, Washington
Marie Trudeau
Record Source:
Washington State Death Records

His marriage record from Quebec gave Elzear's parents as “Honore Malo” and “Marie Trudeau.” 

Great, that was easy! However, in searching for records for Honore, I found some people had him with one wife, Marie Treadu, and they had some or all of the children listed below. I was able to verify them on various censuses:
  •        Marie Liduvine Malo 1874 –
  •        Elzear Malo 1875 – 1955
  •        Blandine Malo 1878 –
  •        Louis Henri Malo 1879 –
  •        Daniel Simon Malo 1881 –
  •        Philippe Augustin Malo 1883 –
  •        Luce Anna Malo 1885 –
Other researchers had a second wife for Honore named "Alphonsine Bourdeau" and they had the following children for the couple:
  •      Joseph  Placide Malo 1889 –
  •      Joseph Fidèle Candide Malo 1894 –
  •       Euclide Malo 1895 –
  •       Joseph Esioff Malo 1898 –

I noted their birth years, and after having viewed some census records, I realized that Alphonsine could not have been the mother of these children.  This is because on the 1901 census Honore was a widow.

It was not until the 1911 census that Alphonsine appears as his wife. 

This means the children that had been attributed to Honore and Alphonsine would actually be the children of Honore and another spouse. I searched around for more records for Honore and came across a marriage record for him and Alexandrine Lemure.

It seems these children would be the children of Alexandrine Lemure. It was possible that she passed on and Honore remarried, so I searched for records for the children which confirmed that their mother was Alexandrine Lemure. Below is the marriage record for  Euclide Malo 

Case solved.
