The families I'm tracing settled in the area of Gravenhurst, Bracebridge perhaps about 1860.
Joseph Lalonde was a farmer, a prospector and a musician.
Some members of the family may have moved to Kirkland Lake as two young men in the family worked in a gold mine there until it closed ca 1930.
What I know of this line of the Lalonde family:
JOSEPH LALONDE was born 18 Jun 1842 in Quebec, and he died before 1924. His wife ROSA A LAMOIE, daughter of JOHN GILBERT SMITH and Matilda Mary LEMAY, was born 16 May 1843 in Ontario or Quebec, died 21 May 1924, Gravenhurst, Ontario. Joseph and Rosa Lalonde married about 1860.
Known Children of ROSA LEMAY/LAMOIE and JOSEPH LALONDE are:
i. LUCY LALONDE, b. 1862, Ontario; d. Abt. 1912, Parry Sound area; m. <JOHN CAMPO>.
ii. JOSEPH LALONDE, b. 1861, Ontario.
iii. SAMEUL LALONDE, b. 1866, Ontario; d. Abt. 1931, <Gravenhurst, Ontario>; m. <MARY SCHELL>.
iv. JOHN LALONDE, b. 1868, Ontario.
v. WILLIAM LALONDE, b. 1869, Ontario; d. Abt. 1953, <Gravenhurst, Ontario>; m. <ETHEL SCHELL>.
vi. ROSA LALONDE, b. 1872, Ontario.
vii. ANN MARIE LALONDE, b. 08 May 1879, Gravenhurst, Ontario; d. 24 May 1970, St Albert, Alberta.
viii. LUCY A LALONDE, b. 21 May 1886, Ontario; d. Abt. 1958, <Gravenhurst, Ontario>; m. <WILLIAM LEMAY>.
I have included the names of spouses in brackets as I have not verified the information.
FRASER: Ann Marie Lalonde married Alexander Fraser in Bracebridge in 1897. Alexander was born 1872 in Kirkfield, Ontario, the son of Archibald Fraser born Glengarry Ontario, died 30 March 1901 in sawmill accident in Gravenhurst. Archibald's father was Alexander Fraser and mother Jennet Forbes both born in Scotland.
I look forward to any input regarding, in particular, the Lalonde and Lemay family members as I have had some difficulty in tracing this family line.
