Missing link to Louise Reil
Posted by: Robert Carlson (ID *****1977) Date: January 12, 2011 at 20:18:21

I am really stuck on part of this area.
I am trying to find out where Lucy Reil father Francis frank Reil might be related to Louise Reil in some way since Louise Reil had two children but neither had any children of their own. Maybe related though one of Louise Reil brothers or sisters.
Here is what I have.
Name: Joseph Lafond
Home in 1880: Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota
Age: 34
Estimated birth year: abt 1846
Birthplace: Canada
Relation to Head of Household: Self (Head)
Spouse's name: Lucy Lafond
Father's birthplace: Canada
Mother's birthplace: Canada
Occupation: Plasterer
Marital Status: Married
Race: White
Gender: Male

Household Members:
Name Age
Joseph Lafond 34
Lucy Lafond 21
Elvina Lafond 1

And in the 1895 Minnesota Census. The family is listed as:

Joseph Lafond 48 M
619 Lincoln St.
Lusia Lafond 35 F
Melvin Lafond 16 F (possibly Melvina)
Joseph Lafond 11 M
Lue Lafond 7 M (possibly Lou)
Oliver LaFond 5 M
Lillian LaFond 1 F

More importantly, per the 1880 Census image, the Lafonds were living next door to the following family, which almost certainly was Lucy's family / Joseph's inlaws:

Name: Margrethe Riel
Home in 1880: Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota
Age: 48
Estimated birth year: abt 1832
Birthplace: Canada
Relation to Head of Household: Self (Head)
Father's birthplace: Canada
Mother's birthplace: Canada
Occupation: Keeping House
Marital Status: Married
Race: White
Gender: Female

Household Members:
Name Age
Margrethe Riel 48
Frank Riel 17
Joseph Riel 12
William Riel 8
John Riel 2
Mary Riel 14
Elisabeth Riel 10

Frank, Mary and Lucy were all born in Canada, but the younger kids were born in Minnesota.

William died in 1956 and his entry gives Margrethe/Margrette's maiden name:

Name: William Riel
Birth Date: 21 Dec 1871
Death Date: 2 Nov 1956
Death County: Hennepin
Mother's Maiden Name: Challifoux
State File Number: 024802
Certificate Number: 024802
Certificate Year: 1956
Record Number: 1318831

Frank and Joseph Riel both look to have passed away in 1940.
