I really appreciate the help here. I am so frustrated on my Gelinas line.
Arthur Nester and Evelina had the following children.
My Grandfather who is Leo Joseph Gelinas Born in Montreal Canada on May 13th 1894. I cant find anything on him in census in the USA and he immigrated here. From one report I have it says he lived in Fall River. ? Did his parents also come here?
He had a brother. His name Omer F W Gelinas I have no date of birth on him.
He has another brother His name Rene (Renate?) Gelinas born March of 1896. ? was he born in Fall River or Canada?
He also had a sister. Her name Josephine A Born in 1879 ?Ripley Minnasota ?
Another brother Arthur Charles born Feb 25 1878 (No Place of birth on this brother.
All this info I have recieved from others on line. In bits and pieces.
Now one of the brothers may have been handicapped.(One Leg)
My mother told me that this brother helped in the invention of the artificial leg. I doubt it as I cannot find any info pertaining to this.
I have gone to the Woonsocket Genealogy and I did not find any Gelinas with these names in there files there. I will be going back agin soon to see if I can find them again.
The one thing that drives me crazy is the years between the childrens date of birth. There is 16 years between my grand father and his last brother Arthur Charles. Can this be right? Did Arthur Nester Remarry???? Who knows here. Could be. Why the big age gap between siblings?
As you can see I am sooooo stuck.
Thankyou for your help. I trulley appreciate all you have done.
