I ahd 4 great uncles originally from Ireland way back(their ancestry poss some french) That family owned the Calumet island in the Ottawa river at one time. They all lived to be very lod Im not sure of their age sequence. Their names were Louis, Mackie,Willy, andPercy. Percy Lamothe lived in ottawa and he was one of the original owners of The morrison-Lamothe bakery, very well known in Ottawa. he became a millionaire in his time Their siter Mary Ellen Lamothe was my grandmother and she married Michael Doherty and they lived in Campbells Bay Que. and around Onslow area
There is an archives in Campbells Bay(by Ottawa river) and a large Catholic church with excellent records and baptism records. Thhe area is bilingual and they understand Eng and speak it fluently. Lamothes still live in Campbells Bay and on Calumet island. Go in under phone# white pages and put in Campbells Bay and last nmae Lamothe and you will see. Willys daughter almost80 still lives in the viliage her name is under Victor Lance in the phone #(mary Ellen"Nellie" Lamothe). Go in under gen web for Pontiac county Quebec managed by Chris Hempel and you can email him. Also go in to phone # and just Lamothe and Ottawa Ontario and see all the listings. In Shawville just north of campbells Bay ( a few miles) is a very old local newspaper called The Equity and its on line and carries family hist books on the local area and they are very helpful. Another palcew is Quyion Que.(same gen.area and thereis the Gavon Hotel there and it goes way back, small and local,now run by their dau. Gail I know she would try to help you. Also St Bridgetts Cmetery ,Catholic still has a priests house there and a large well maintained cemetery, withreadable stones . Campbells bay has a Catholic and Protestant ceemetery. Calumet is. has a local cemetery also. The area was originall a very hard working lumber camp area.From patricia B Hope this helps
