Hi Mark! I have a Electrius/Electus/Alex Oakes in my family line. If it's the same person you are looking for, this is what I have for info! He was born Dec 3, 1821 married in Bathurst, NB, Canada to Marie Henriette Lavigne. He died 1890 in St. Francois, NB, canada & is buried in St.Francois, NB, Canada. He had 12/13 children: Olive, Sarah, Electrius, William, Joseph, Ellen, Betsy, Abigail, Liza (Louisa), Peggy, John Harriet, Christine (which is my gggrandmother)! I hope this is some help!
