I wish I knew more, but I don't. My father-in-laws mother, Violet Quesnel, passed away in 1984, which was way before I started or had any interest in family history. Which is unfortunate.
This is what I know:
Notes for VIOLET QUESNEL:
VIOLET MARY QUESNELâ€™S parents were WILLIAM WESLEY QUESNEL b. December 18, 1870 in Brockville, Ontario Canada and LUCY ANN SAUDER b. October 24, 1874 Elmira, Waterloo, Ontario Canada, m. October 1, 1890 in Dyers Bay, Ontario, Canada. Their children were: LOREN WESLEY QUESNEL b. 8/1/1891, OSCAR EARL QUESNEL b. 5/27/1894, VIOLET MARY QUESNEL b. 3/13/1896 and ALVIN HUNTER QUESNEL b. 9/18/1897 d. Jan 1985.
Violet was married a few times. First to VICTOR WELLINGTON JENKINS, then JOSEPH EDWARD CARTWRIGHT and lastly to ___ SPEARE when she married Joseph Edward Cartwright, he adopted Vernon, Clarissa and Vincent. Vernon and Clarissa took the Cartwright name, but Vincent changed his name to St. Clair. The first marriage was terminated by divorce, the second and third were by death of natural causes. She outlived them all and passed on January 24, 1984 at the age of 88.

I would love it if you could help fill in some information here for me on the Quesnel side of things. You mentioned Joseph and Thrisa QUESNEL were William Wesley's parents? Do you have any more information there that you can share with me? Perhaps some photos as well? Please email me directly @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your input.
