I am trying to find a death date or death record for Electus Oakes. He lived for some years in St. Francis (Aroostook County, Maine) and then lived in Sheridan (near Ashland), where, in 1899, he was arrested and tried for the murder of one of his sons. He died a few years later, but I don't have a date yet. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks for the info. I have a friend who is a descendent of Electus (Electrius). Do you know of any records that show his date and place of death? My friend is looking for some proof of that. Thanks for your help!

Mark,
I currently don't have any birth or death records on hand for Electrius, or his children....
I did get this from provincial archives, this is my mother-in-law's g.grandfather, g.grandmother and uncle.
This Electus is Electrius's son.
Look into the archives for yourself, you may find something I couldn't. Good luck.

Hi.

Bathurst, N.B., Ca, and d in 1906 in Houlton, Me.

There is a book about his trial in the Maine State
Library system. Anything else you might want to know,

Hi Donna.

Joseph Oakes was the son (b 1830) of
ELECTRIUS OAKES & HENRIETTE LAVIGNE. There has long
been a legend that she was Indian. In fact, my father,
still alive at 95, used to tell us when we were kids
that we had an "Indian Princess" as a ggggrandmother.
However, she is 100% French Canadian, with a lot of
Acadian ancestors.

One of Joseph Oakes brothers, Electus Oakes, My
gggrandfather, married Angeline Caron/Correau. From
her own mouth came the following:

"I was born in Canada and came into the States when I was a little infant child about two years old; I was reared among Yankee folks."

She is PROBABLY the half-breed indian NOT her mother-in-law. . .
. most likely.

A gentleman at the University of Maine, Fort Kent,
name of Nicholas Hawes who is an Acadian expert, did a
lot of research on the subject of Indian ancestry for
the people of Oakes ancestry living in Connors, N.B.
I don't know the results, but the last I had heard was
that my statement about Henrette Lavigne is true.

Anthing different than the above I would love to hear.
It (my genealogical research) is a constant work in
progress and corrections happen all the time.

If you need any more data on the ancestors please let
me know at: pauli007@pacbell.net.

Have a fine weekend.

Paul

Mark,
unfortunately, we don't have any records on Electus' birth or death. have you tried...http://www.cary.lib.me.us
Annette has been in touch with my mother-in-law, and they've gone over a lot of ground, but have made no progress that I know of in regards to records.
take care and good luck.
