My grandmother,Emma Louise LeBlanc,was born in Arachat,Nova Scotia and was a cook on her uncle's lumber
schooner which traveled back and forth to Boston. His
name was Pierre Fougere.In 1897,at the age of 14,she
arrived in Boston and soon married my grandfather,James
Henry Kane.They had six children and lived in East Boston.
She had several brothers who worked on the Eastern Steamship company. One of her brother,Thomas LeBlanc was
the pursor on the Evangeline. He later changed his name to
Thomas White and was a well known character on the piers in Boston.The family traveled often back to Arachat to
visit relatives. I do not know what their names were. I
have a brother who was named after Pierre Fougere and
a brother named after Thomas LeBlanc. I do know that my
grandmother,s mothers Maiden name was Langois(which was
also called Langley at times.Please let me know in any of this seems familiar.
