Arthur Gravel
Posted by: A member of the Gravel family (ID *****1940) Date: May 09, 2010 at 18:38:41
  of 520

My grandfather was Arthur Gravel,he was born in Quebec and had to drop out of school in grade 2 because his father passed away and his mother needed help on the farm.According to his daughter,he couldnt even write his own name! He was a fan of the Montreal Canadiens and his grandchildren recall him cheering for joy with is wife Simoe wheneer they scored a goal.

Arthur died at age 68.

The birth year is unknown,His son Art Gravel,Jr. was born in 1941 and his daughter Pierrete A. Gravel was born in 1944.

The Gravel family was poor,Pierrete did not have a birthday cake until she was 16 years old.

It was determained that Arthur died some time in the mid 70s.

If that is rounded to 1975....

68 -

For now,lets guess that his birth year is around 1907.

Pierrete Gravel had four kids with a Danish man named Soren Thrysoe Poulsen.


in that order.

any info would be fantastic
