According to his death registration, Ferdinand Madore was b. Baker (Boker?) Brook, Madawaska Co., NB 31AUG1873, and died there 18JUL1953 age 79 years, 10 months and 18 days. His wife was Emelie Violette, his parents were Octave and Celeste (Quimonde?) Madore and the informant was his son, 'Frederic' Madore. Octave was also from Baker Brook and Celeste was from Ste.-Luce, USA.
Ferdinand Madore (17) was in St.-Hilaire Parish, Madawaska Co., NB in the 1891 census. There were, nearby, several members of a Baker family, including 'Enock' S. Baker (ca. 1819) from the US. Presumably this was Baker Brook. His father was Octave Madore (62) b. Canada (i.e., Quebec?), and his mother was Celeste Guimond (59) b. NB. Siblings were Hilaire (20) and Salomé (24).
Octave (52) and Céleste (59; probably should be 49) 'Mador' had a much larger family in St.-Hilaire Parish in 1881. He was b. 'Q' (Quebec) and she and the children were b. NB. Children were: Octave (24), Anastasia (22), Aleime (?) (son, 20), 'Isäc' (18), Joseph (15), Salomé (14), Hilaire (11) and Ferdinand (8).
In 1871, in St. Francis (St.-François) Parish, in what was then Victoria Co., NB, the surname has been transcribed as 'Malor'. Octave (39) and 'Sellis' (39) had children: 'Fline' (?) (daughter, 20), Octave (13), 'Anertanre' (?, Anastasie?) (daughter, 12), Outrin (Outrim?) (son, 10), Eugie (son, 9), Joseph (8), 'Salamis' (4) and 'Helare' (1).
In St.-François Parish in 1851 Octave 'Maddore' (36) is indicated as having arrived in NB in 1838. He and Celeste (23) had a daughter, Flavia (2).
I think Octave is the Octave Madore who d. St. Hilaire 22JUL1901 age 72 years. In Ste.-Hilaire Parish in 1901, Octave was b. 15APR1829, Celeste was b. 16NOV1830 and Ferdinand was b. 1OCT1874; but the dates in that census are not reliable.
In her registration 'Emilia (Violet) Madore' was b. Eagle Lake, ME 13FEB1888, d. 'Baker-Brook' 26MAR1950 age 62 years, 1 month and 12 days, and was a daughter of Simon and Edith (Langlois) 'Violet'. Her husband was 'Fortunat' Madore. this based on information from her son, Frédéric Madore. Frédéric also gave his parents as Fortunat and Emélia (Violette) Madore when he married Edmunston 3SEP1947 Colette Nadeau. Interestingly, Marie Eva Madore (b. Baker Brook ca. 1909) when she m. 'St. Hilaire', Madawaska Co., NB 4OCT1927 Joseph-Thaddeé Grondin, also gave her parents as Fortunat and Emilia (Violette) Madore. Although, as in the census returns above, he is consistently a variation of Ferdinand, perhaps Fortunat was a nick-name?
Simon and Edith ('Langlais') Violette did exist. A daughter (unnamed) married Fort Kent, Aroostook Co., ME 1901 _____ 'Dechene', s/o Joseph and Sophie (Boutot (Bulotte?)) Dechene. Simon may have been the same b. ca. 1853 in Aroostook Co., in 1860. There was also a Simon b. ca. 1834. The 1853 Simon seems to be the right one, and he is also given a Simon Luc Violette b. ca. 1853, d. Fort Kent 8JAN1925, s/o Luc and Anthemise (Pelletier) Violette; and to have m. Edith Langlais (b. Eagle Lake ca. 1852), d/o Francois and Anthemise (Gagnon) Langlais. Another daughter was Dorimine Violette b. ca. 1870, m. Andre Deschenes (b. ca. 1869). Another daughter was Edith Violette (27DEC1886-1APR1928), m. Denis Cyr. There was no mention of Emélie. Dorimine is really questionable as Simon-Luc Violette and edith Langlois were m. St. Louis (church?), Fort Kent, Aroostook Co., ME 15APR1883.
Ferdinand (OCT1873) and Emélie (MAR1886) Madore are in St.-Hilaire Parish, Madawaska Co., NB in 1911. A daughter was Eva (JUL1910). Ferdinand's mother was Céleste Madore (NOV1837).
