Thanks for responding to my message!

According to my information, which may not be totally accurate,

Rose Antoinette Gélinas was the daughter of Francois X. Gélinas and Celina Lagasse. Celina is said to have been born in Canada and perhaps Francois was too. The sons were named Alexander, Francois, and John and I have no further info about any of them except for spouses. Francois apparently died young.

Celina and Francois X. had 10 known children, with Rose being one of the middle ones. I have her date of birth as 27 June 1886. I have sisters Margaret born 9 July 1883, Adelaide born 25 July 1890, twins Delima and Della born 15 August 1893 and Loretta and Dorothy born 7 August/October 1899.

Rose married Windfield Waldemar Powell 22 July 1910. They had at least one son, Wallace Reinfield Powell, born 26 October 1911 in Willimantic, CT.

Rose may have been born in Canada, but if I've got the right individual in the Social Security index and that info is right, she was born in N. Windham, Connecticut. She died in Willimantic, CT in 1966.

Thanks so much for any info and leads you can give me!
