    Louis Maille was my grandfather,also. My dad was Lionel P. Maille. I am looking for more information on the brothers and sisters. Does anyone have information on Ray?

  5. I have no information on Raymond what so ever other than this 1943 article that was published in the Lowell Sun.
    Barb is on facebook and we're friends so I'll ask her if she knows anything

    Hi, It's Barb. Hey Cousin :) Other than the article that Michelle has referenced I only have found this very basic info for Uncle Ray. I've always thought he died at the age of 58, but I don't trust my memory so I'm thinking he may be the Ray listed here that passed at age 55. If you have any specific questions about my dad (Robert C. Maille) let me know.

    Michelle sorry I couldn't be more help. You are the pro here, and I appreciate all the info you've passed on to me. :)
