Louis Lachapelle and Ida Hamilton's Children - Attleboro, MA

Louis Lachapelle and Ida Hamilton's Children - Attleboro, MA

Surnames: Lachapelle
My aunt Ida Hamilton was a nurse in Attleboro, Massachusetts in the 1930s. She married (Ernest) Louis Lachapelle in the early 30s. Ida had several children with Louis, one of which was only a couple of days old when Ida died from pneumonia in mid-February 1937 at a hospital in Central Falls, Rhode Island. Louis later married Marguerite Tetreault. If anyone has information about Ida's children with Louis please reply.

You could find their births at Mass Archives - they have on microfilm the BMD index for the years 1915-1970. You would jot down the vol and page number and then go right down the street to Mass Vitals to see actual record. Vitals charges $9 an hour for research - that's why I use Archives first, saves a little time.

Thank you for that tip Margaret. I will have to do the payment for research through Mass Vitals because I live in California.

Don't use Vitalchek - they charge an arm and a leg!

http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/consumer/basic-needs/vitals/obtain...

That's the link to Mass. Vitals - scroll down until you see 'By Mail' - cost not as bad as Vitalchek.

Or you could post another message to see if anyone is going to Mass Vitals and see if they would do a lookup for you.

Good luck
Margaret

Hi Candace. My husband Louie is the oldest son of Louis and Marguerite, born in 1939. I am curious as to if you found any info on children of Louis and Your Aunt. My husband thought there was only one child and your aunt died either in a car accident or in childbirth with afore mentioned child. It would be great to know there were more half siblings

Surnames: Tetrlault, Lachapelle
The 1940 census has the following info Summmer St. N. Attleboro
Delia Tetrault 64 widow b. Rhode Island
Estelle dau. 23 single bookkeeper - garage b. R.I.
Margaret Lachapelle dau.28
Louie Lachapelle son-in-law 30 b. Ma. laborer- poultery farm
Laure grandson 8 mos. b. Ma.
The spellin was not correct for grandson'
So it would seem Louis and Ida had only 1 living child before he married Margaret.
