My great-grand father Joseph Camille Goulet

29 May

This is my first discovery back in 2005 when I started to contact people in the Breakeyville region to learn more of my family. I contacted the Breakeyville History Society(website in french) where I immediately got replies from an old childhood friend of my dad who sent me this picture :

I was amazed (and moved) when I recognized several of the family features me and my dad share, in fact Joseph is the spitting image of my grand-father Wilfrid; a tall man, straight-backed with a firm clear gaze. I learned more about Joseph, he was the second son of David Goulet and Philomene Nadeau, he was born July 18th 1860 and he died at the grand old age of 90 in April 1951 in the Levis region. Joseph was a labourer all his life, working and tending the soil with his wife Luce Blanchette (1865-1941). Of his parents, brothers and sisters, he was the only one to remain in Quebec, all the others went state side. But that is another story.
