Reply from Lloyd Awalt. Hi Gary. had to answer Paulette’s) Roy Anderson. Roy Anderson was my uncle. At one time before he came to town he had a little farm in the hills. Roy was a cripple. He passed away quite awhile ago. He had alot of one liners. he stayed at our place when the folks would go for the weekend and watch the house. He was quite a guy . Lloyd Awalt.

Sharron, I’m think this may be of interest to many, so I’m including it with today’s blog. Gary
If I might trouble you to route this message to Paulette Lacroix Chisholm?
Dear Paulette,

There are so many descendants of Oliver and Philomene Boucher in Rolette County that I certainly need access to family pages of the Tree before I start making statements! Cannot open that disc at the moment for more detail, but will get back to you soon if you like.

Colette, yourself and I are all within that Boucher Tree of Rolette County. Edward married Matilda Duchesneau [parents of Johanna]; Louis married Emma Lord [parents of Marie Coranna]; Victor married Emma Casavant [parents of Alma]. This makes the Gottbreht kids a bit closer to the trunk of Boucher Tree. All cousins. Because of Emma Lord, your branch can be traced back to Charlemagne! I promised Janice a copy of the material I have but never followed through. Takes about a ream of paper to print back to the 9th century. It was always my hope to make the connection you share with many Richard descendants [Alan Richard family; Floyd and Carmen Richard family and Louis and Stella Schimetz family.

Great picture.
