    Sandra Thorne Borgon writes:
    My mother (Lorraine DeWaele) said that Cesaire was so handsome that when he walked down the street in Bay City, the women pull back their lace curtains to get a better look (1890s). I have only one photo of him but you will be able to see how debonair he looks. His sister was a nun in Canada and I have a letter written in French - her language - written in the early 1900's. That line of the family only spoke French which is what my grandmother spoke growing up and she taught it to her children.

    Evidently Cesaire's wife Josephine wasn't well after having a number of children, so she went back to be nursed by her mother where she died from her ailment. Cesaire was left to raise the children. He found raising the children too dificult so farmed out the ones who were very young. George was adopted by the Browns.

    Found em!! The Cesaire/ Caesar Archambeault/Archambault (would the correct spelling please stand up) family is listed in the 1880 Michigan census for Bay County/ Augres Township. Augres was part of Bay County until 1884; at which time the current Arenac County was formed. Fortunately, I have access to a data base at my resource center that gives complete history (from inception) for every city/ village/ township. Anyway, hereeeeeesss the Archambeaults:

    Name Age Relationship Occupation Birthplace Parent's B-place
    Cesaire 46 Hd of Hsehld Blacksmith Canada Canada
    Josephine 35 Wife Keeping House " "
    Minnie 14 Daughter Attending School " "
    Delphine 10 " " " "
    Eloise (Alice) 4 " Michigan "
    Helen 1 " " "


    Eloise must be great aunt Alice, but who's Minnie? Note that sometime between the birth of Delphine (1870) and Eloise (1876), they moved from Canada to Michigan. That narrows my future Canada location search for their place of origin (and parents) somewhat. Shouldn't have much trouble finding the three daughter's Canadian birth registrations; plus Cesaire/Josephine's marriage certificate (circa 1865) now that the approximate timeframes are known. Have found numerous Archambault's in French Canada, all spelled without the e (i.e.not beault). Also several Cesaires, spelled as shown here. Fun huh?

    9/26/06 from John Thorne:
    No one seemed to know what happened to great grandpa Cesaire after he disappeared from Bay City area around 1900. In the 1911 Canadian census (Montreal, St. Antoine Ward, sub-district 36, page 12), he's an "inmate" in a home for the aged (in Montreal). The document is hard to read, but I "enhanced" parts of it to give you an up close and personal view of our genealogy. This is apparently where Caesar finished his life. Can't quite make out the address of the home (left column) here, but will send it to my Montreal association buddy (Pierre Archambault) for further interpretation. This is his year of birth (1838) and age in 1911(73); plus province (Quebec), nationality (French) and country of origin (Canadian). Also provided other data such as occupation (none), religion (Catholic), can read (yes), write (yes), language (French), etc. The birth date given (1838) is off by one year from Cesaire's actual (1837), but was probably a factor of when in 1911 the census was taken. He may have still been 73, and they "did the math."
