Another Louis Malo

It has been a long time since I made a posting here, I have been so busy working on a post-graduate diploma in genealogical studies (one class left) and trying to keep my business alive that I found myself with little spare time for personal blogging.

Today I feel a bit of relief in that I am finally making a long overdue  post. I was inspired by some misinformation I came across yesterday on Find a Grave for Louis Malo (1858 – 1938). This Louis' spouses were Héloïse Provost and Annie Cloe Julius. Louis was born at St-Marc-sur-Richelieu, Verchères, Quebec, and died at Taunton, Bristol County, Massachusetts.

I found the headstone gave Louis' birth date as 1867, and who ever made the Find a Grave site gave his birth date as 1870. Nether of those dates are quite accurate.


These photos were taken by Karen who gave me permission to post them here. Thanks Karen! 

Louis' parents were Jean Louis Ayet dit Malo (1837 – 1905) and Marie Julienne Forand (1835 – 1900).  Louis' baptism record indicates that he was baptized 9 March 1858.

Just as a side note, I have not traced Louis' first wife's family, so I am not implying anything, but just to say that I know that the Provost surname is associated with the descendants of Roch Mantioubeouich and Outchibahanoukoueou. Roch's daughter, Marie Olivier Manitouabeouich dit Sylvestre married Martin Prévost. Provost is one of the surname variations of Prévost. Well documented descendants meeting particular requirements can become members of the Nulhegan Tribe Abenaki Nation of Vermont, a state recognized Native American Indian tribe. Not all  Prevosts/Provosts are descended from Martin and Marie Olivier, but the couple does have many living descendants. 

Hopefully I will get my next post up sooner than this one was.
