I am currently working on my Comeau line.  They came from New Brunswick to the Lewiston area and then Lisbon. My granduncle was Angus Luc Comeau (born Auguste Luc according to the 1891 Can. census). His parents were Luke (Luc?) Comeau and Virginie Caissie.  He married Sophie Waquier(changed to Walker in US).  They had 3 children; Joan Rose, and Theodore. Joan married Rosario Joseph Croteau May 3, 1947. It was his second marriage, her first.  I believe she is still living today at the age of 91.  It would certainly be nice to find her.  I haven't beenable to find information on her siblings other than what the 1930 census has.

Thanks Ben.  I had the marriage certificate, and it does appear Joan passed away.  I would like to find out now how many children they had and also where her sister Irene went and her brother Theodore.

According to SSN death index there were two Irene's with the same birth date as Irene Comeau. The first is Irene Swift and the second was Irene C. Boucher b. 8 Nov 1921 SSN issued in Maine but her last residence was in Connecticut 2 Sep 2000. Not exactly sure sure if either one is your Irene, but some further investigation of these two women may reveal something. I have tried obituary searches thru newspaperarchive.com and genealogybank.com but could not come up with anything.

Ok, I now believe it was this Irene that you are looking for info on.

I believe this is your Theodore Comeau, Now going by knickname Ted Comeau and may still be alive in Niles, Ohio. Google Ted Comeau and you will see articles written and interviewed with him. The only reason I ussed this article was that it mentions his wife and family.
