    BIOGRAPHY: It is thought that Betsy was born in Scotland and emigrated with her parents. 
    McCormick, Elizabeth (I68)
    2 son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Webb) Doddridge, who were natives of Devon, England.
    Thomas was an Officer in the British Military, serving in South Africa before his transfer to Lower Canada. Three of John's siblings were born in South Africa but there was no record for John so he may have been born in England or on board the ship bringing the family to Quebec City in 1803 or 1804. John was working in Carleton as a ship carpenter by 1826 and, a few years after his marriage to Jane, they settled in New Richmond on part of the original Robertson land grant given to them by Jane's father, Hugh Robertson. John continued to work as a ship carpenter but also farmed and in later years became a Justice of the Peace. It was in honour of his ten daughters that John named his first vessel "The Ten Sisters". This vessel was wrecked during a storm off Prince Edward Island, with no loss of life, while John's eldest son Hugh was captain of the vessel. All the children were baptized in the Anglican Church, New Carlisle, Qc. John and Jane are buried in St. Andrew's United Church Cemetery, New Richmond, Qc., along with all their family with the exception of Isabella. - from Peggy Willet and from Vic Hodowanski's Families of the Cascapedia By 
    Doddridge, John Shipbuilder (I63)
    3 "1783: William Atkinson of Nova Scotia buys Lot #15, above Pointe Cavagnol, from the heirs of Jean-Baptiste Séguin, for his daughter Elizabeth, who is married to John Mark Crank. The Cranks settle on the land in 1789. (Note: At the moment, we do not know precisely who this Jean-Baptiste Séguin was, for there were at least two and perhaps three Jean-Baptistes at the time. However, we can say that he was not the Jean-Baptiste Séguin who married Catherine Raizenne in 1742, since this Jean-Baptiste is said to have died in July 1786 while working on his farm. The likelihood is that we are speaking here of Jean-Baptiste (Jeannot), son of Jean-Baptiste and Geneviève Barbeau, who died in July of 1786, and who is the ancestor of the Séguin's of Rigaud and Ripon, Québec.)"

    4 "Another little story I heard last week had to do with Adwina - Richard was a Guardian on the Little Cascapedia River and responsible for keeping poachers away, some of them being her sons by all reports. One day, when Adwina served salmon, he asked where it had come from, to which she replied "It says in the Bible to eat what is put before you and ask no questions, for conscience sake." End of questions!!" from Peggy Willmett - March 2004
    Doddridge, Edwina (I17)
    5 "Charles Lallemant (or Lalemant), (November 17, 1587 ? November 18, 1674) was a French Jesuit. He was born in Paris in 1587 and later became the first Superior of the Jesuit Missions amongst the Huron in Canada. His letter to his brother, dated 1 August 1626, inaugurated the series Relations des Jésuites de la Nouvelle-France about the missionary work in that country."
    "Lalement was made responsible for setting up a mission of the Society of Jesus in New France, and in April 1625 he left Dieppe with Fathers Énemond Massé and Jean de Brébeuf, accompanied by two lay brothers. He arrived in Quebec City in June."
    "Lallemant had two close relatives in the Jesuit missions: Jérôme Lalemant, his brother, and Gabriel Lalemant, a nephew, who was murdered by the Iroquois and is honored as a saint by the Catholic Church." 
    Lallemant, Father Charles Jesuit Huron Missionary (I4864)
    6 "Gilles Lauzon was a French was a talented French coppersmith and a member of "Le Grande Recrue", a group of roughly 100 Frenchman recruited to populate the colony of New France.
    Le Grande Recrue originally left on the ship Saint-Nicolas de Nantes, under the command of Captain Pierre Lebesson. After 350 leagues at sea, it was necessary to turn back. Water seeped into the hold and threatened to spoil all the provisions. Paul de Chomedey (Maisonneuve) placed the passengers on an island before docking at Saint Nazaire. They then had to find another ship, transport the baggage and replacement supplies, and feed all the passengers while waiting. This was at the expense of the Compagnie de Montreal. The replacement ship Sainte-Marguerite set sail on 20 July 1653, and arrived in Quebec on 22 September 1653. There was much illness aboard ship, claiming the lives of eight passengers at sea." 
    Lauzon, Gilles (I4498)
    7 "Nellie was the daughter of Sydney and Isabella (Scott) McLellan of Black Cape. She died tragically at the railroad crossing on McCormick's Alley in Chaleurs, when the car in which she was a passenger was struck by the train. Mr. George McWhirter had gone to Black Cape to bring she and the three children home but the car was struck on the crossing on the return trip. The occupants were thrown out of the car and Nellie was fatally injured. Betty, the baby, was only 4 months old at the time of the accident and they found her unharmed in the “cow catcher” on the front of the train. Raymond also died quite young and the children were brought up by their McLellan grandparents." - email from Peggy Willett McLellan, Mary Ellen (Nellie) (I1425)
    8 "Of this union there were Susan, Jennie, Dick, Hope, Campbell, Alvin, Oliver (the Herbert Oliver in your picture), May, Louisa & Lorne (11 in all)." - from Peggy Willett May 12, 2008 Family F323
    9 "Their nine children born after 1750 were baptized at Saint-Vincent-de-Paul. Of their 14 children, at least half died before the age of three and two others in their teens. Three of their infant children died in one week in August 1751, likely from diphtheria which spread through New France that year."

    10 "Upon arriving in Quebec, he was almost immediately sent to the Huron mission where he worked under the instruction of Fathers Jean de Brébeuf and Jérôme Lalemant for eight years. In 1645 he became superior of the Huron mission. During his time as superior, a number of his missionaries met their deaths, the first being Jean de Lalande in October 1646. They became known as the Canadian Martyrs. He remained at his post on St. Mary's on the Wye until 1649, when persuaded by the Huron leaders to join the fugitives on St. Joseph's island (1649).

    After a bloody defeat, followed by the massacres of Fathers Noël Chabanel and Charles Garnier, Ragueneau, yielding to the entreaties of the few whom famine, pestilence, and the fury of the Iroquois had spared, led the small band of 400 survivors, the remnants of a nation of ten thousand, to their final refuge, Quebec, after a long and perilous journey. Ragueneau wrote the "Relations of the Hurons" of 1648-9, 1649?50, 1650-1, and 1651-2 which describes the destruction of the mission."

    18 1742: Jacques Sabourin is ceded the farm (farm #14) on which Greenwood is located on March 22, 1742. The farm is 3 arpends wide along the river and 20 arpends deep. He presumably began constructing a house, and possibly a small shelter for animals, on the land during the late spring and summer of the same year.

    36 My mother remembered her Grandmother Karne as a very kind and loving . Mom said she always had sweets in her pockets to give to children. As a child I often studied this photo carefully in hopes she might give me some of the treats hidden in her pockets. Mom also told me she had up and disappeared suddenly. Her husband didn't know where she was. She just showed up one day after having been gone for seven years . Word had it she had run away to New York City......

    was the experience of Clarence Burton and his

    48 A story about Grand-mere Malbeof from Nadine

    She lived to be 100years old.

    Emilie (nee Martin dit Barnabe) took care of her until her death.

    When she was younger one night she was reaching to pick up one of the crying babies in a crib next to her bed. At the time the cribs had posts and it was dark and she put her eye out on the crib. Awful story. So she was blind in one eye for much of her life. Then later on she got an infection in the other eye and was completely blind.

    She also smoked. Which as my aunt says, at the time was unusual for a woman. Apparently Emilie told my aunt that grandmere malboeuf after supper would go sit on the stairs and enjoy a smoke from her corn cob pipe.
    Malboeuf (I1386)
    49 A story from Doris via Ethel;
    Leona was previously married to a man named Andy Love and had 2 children by him. Louella & Andrew
    According to her grand daughter Etheline she left Andy and then married Ernest. They had Lily in 1907 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.
    The story goes that she put the 2 children she had by Andy Love in foster care giving them away for adoption and left Ernie leaving Lily on the doorstep of a neighbor and when Ernie returned home after work her rescued Lily and took her home. On further investigation it is said she cleaned out Ernie's bank account when she left. Thats the last Ernest saw of her. According to Etheleen , Leona had 5 husbands One could write a book on Leona alone.
