Hi. I'm not related to this family. This might be them in 1930:

Here is a birth record for son, Patrick:

And for Willie:

So, this was a 2nd marriage for Cyr, and it looks like they married closer to 1920. Unfortunately, I can't find a marriage record for them.

Here is Cyr's 1st marriage:ed

This might be the family in 1920:

I think the difficulty will be find out about Anna Levasseur. In 1940 the family is still living in Van Buren:

Pauline Cormier 11 -dau- b. 1929 ME
Rosalla Cormier 6 -dau- b. 1934 ME
Rolande Cormoer 1 -dau- b. 1939 ME

According to a public tree on Ancestry.com, Anna was b. 23 Jun 1900 in Edumdston, NB, the daughter of Thomas V. Levasseur & Hermina Levasseur. I cannot verify this info, however there is an Annie Levasseur with these parents living in Van Buren, ME in 1920. Hope this helps. Annie
