- 1867 -
Jean Albert was born in 1867 and married Emma Godin in 1896. In 1948, at the age of 81, he recorded the family history so that it could be passed on to his children and grandchildren. His father's family came to Canada from Normandy, France in 1760 and settled along the banks of the Restigouche River, New Brunswick. His maternal ancestors of the Patience family arrived in the area in 1823.
