New Details of Eduoard Boisvert’s Life

Turns out that Eduoard Boisvert was named, in part, after his father, Louis Hubert Boisvert.  I discovered this while browsing the St. Felix de Kingsey (Quebec) parish records today.  I have never seen my great, great grandfather’s baptism record before — and I never knew that his middle name was Hubert.

To blacksmith, Hubert Boisvert and his wife, Genevieve Euphemie Leborgne, of Kingsey (Quebec.) Godfather: Eduoard Chene (Hubert kept the family tradition of naming children for their godparents alive — even after moving from Ste. Croix.) Godmother: Emelie Leborgne (one of Euphemie’s relatives?!)

I also discovered when, and where, Eduoard’s father died.

Louis Hubert Boisvert was buried on June 9th, 1866 in the parish of St. Felix de Kingsey.  He was 48 years old.  I wish the record also revealed how and/or why.  I imagine this was not just a personal loss but a family tragedy.  Four years later, his widow and children had moved 285 miles away to Adams, MA where Eduoard and his siblings supported their household as laborers and mill workers.
