1865 - 1936
Leodore is not related to me. These photos were shot while doing other research in the cemetery. What caught my eye here was the broken rifle and the appearance and feeling of loneliness that I felt surrounding this stone.
Curious, I looked up Leo very quickly on ancestry and this is what I found.
It seems as though Leo's parentage is unknown. But according to census records and a public tree, he was born abt. 1895 in Rhode Island. Unable to find a 1900 census enumeration of Leo. I did find him enumerated in the 1910 census living with the St. Armand family on Austin St in Lowell., age 15, brother-in-law to the head, Napoleon St. Armand.. Leo married (according to the public tree) Angele Harvey circa.1921 in Lowell. In 1930 the family of Leo and Angele are enumerated living on Lakeview Rd. in Tyngsboro, MA. They had one son, Roland, who was 9 years old. Residing with with the family were a niece and nephew, Leo & Irene Letourneau. Also, according to the public tree, Leo dies on 31 Jan., 1932 in Lowell, MA. I think I would like to do a more in depth research on Leo, to verify things and to find out who his parents were and where they came from etc.. but I don't have the time right now..
