Quebec, Canada, to Springfield, MA (JARRY)

Hello. I thought I had posted a query about a year ago, but I'm not finding anything in the archives.

In general, I am looking for more information on my grandfather's 3rd wife, Mrs. Yvonne (LAMOTHE) JARRY. From their marriage in 1952, they lived in Chicopee, MA. Yvonne had 4 children from her first marriage.

I have some information from my research a little over a year ago, but do not have time to post it at the moment. *

More specifically, I have just found out about "Jerry LaMothe's Orchestra" from around 1940 in Springfield, MA, or the towns around there ! And, I would like to know if Jerry LaMothe was related to my grandfather's wife, Mrs. Yvonne (LAMOTHE) (JARRY) LEWIS.

My grandfather had a "family band" which was known as "the Lewis Swing-Billies." And, I just found out that one of the young men in the band was named, Jerry, and I wonder whether he was Jerry LaMothe.

* Yvonne and her sister, Eva, came down from Quebec before 1920 - as young women, and Yvonne married the man who traveled with them shortly after.

There is more information on this family in the archives of the Hampden Co. and Hampshire Co. MA Lists.
