Re: LeBoeufs from Webster, Mass

In Reply to: LeBoeufs from Webster, Mass by Don of 428

Don,
I was doing some research at the Webster Library yesterday. They have directories (almost like a Census) that was put out yearly. They didn't have all the directories, but I did find the following that you may find helpful;
There were 2 Hormidas'. They both show up in the 1899 directory (earliest one they had). Unless indicated, the addresses are in Webster.
1899
Hormidas LeBoeuf, living in a house on High Street.
Hormidas leBoeuf, Carder, boarding with Jean B (may be Jean Baptiste) LeBoeuf in a house on Union Street.
1902
Hormidas, fireman, house at 12 Union St.
Hormidas, Carder, boarding with Jean B. LeBoeuf.
1907
Hormidas, fireman, now living at 9 Oak in Dudley.
No mention of the other one.
1912
Hormidas, fireman, now living in a house at 95 Cottage St, Webster.
No mention of the other one.
1919-1920 In this year, they list the spouse in parentheses. They didn't mention the spouses in the prior issues.
Hormidas (Emily)*, fireman, house on 95 Cottage Street.
George H. (1st time we see him) boarding at 95 Cottage Street.
Other persons listed as "boarders":
Desange, Operator
Emma, Operator
Eugenie, Sewer
C. Ludovic, Operator

1922
Hormidas (Emily) fireman 95 Cottage St
Other persons listed as "boarders" at 95 Cottage St:
C. Ludovic, Operator
Desange, Operator
Eugenie, Sewer
George H (Eva)* Folder, living in a house at 10 Wakefield.
1929
Hormidas (retired) renting at 13 1/2 East Main Street. (No mention of Emily, gravestone has her dying in 1922)
George, Mill Hand, (no wife listed, not sure if this is the same one) renting at 13 1/2 East Main Street.
At this time, the house at 13 1/2 is owned by Angelina LeBoeuf (my great grandmother, her husband, Leon is deceased). Other persons listed as renting at 13 1/2 East Main are:
Arthur A. (Angelina's son)
Donalda (Angelina's daughter)
John, Mill Hand
1950
No Hormidas, DUH, probably not...if he died in '38. No mention of George either.
BUT, Jerome is listed (he's on the Hormidas grave stone), wife Maida, owning a house on 5th Ave.
Boarders at 5th Ave.
Constance, secretary
Muriel, emp at BCS Co
Ludovic is now listed as Ludovic C, married to Corinne, living at 485 School St. Roland, an employee of Webster Lens is listed as a renter at 485 School St.
1953
Same as above, except there is now a Charles living at 5th Ave w/jerome.
Where people are listed as renters or boarders, they were most often children, but could also be some other relation.
Hormidas may have been Jean B's brother or son?
I'm giving you some more grave information that applies to the above;
Sacred Heart Cemetery
LeBoeuf
Jean B b. 1-8-1856
No date of death listed
spouse, Marie Langlais b 1-19-1857
d. 10-22-1921

Ludovic LeBoeuf
1903-1987
Spouse- Rose Anna LaBelle
1886-1986

George H. LeBoeuf
WWI Veteran
b 9-2-1891
d 5-20-1967

I'll send more when I know more.
