Pépère’s Siblings

I love old pictures, especially pictures of ancestors.  It is always a treat to make contact with a distant family member who can share pictures.  My genealogy “office” has a wall of framed photos that is constantly added to as I find more discoveries.

I decided to see if I had picture of all of Thomas Hogue, Sr. and Philomene McMillan’s children. These are the results.

Marguerite Clara Hogue (1866-1942)

She was the eldest of their children and this is the only pictured I’ve seen in which she is identified.  Obviously taken later in life.

Adelaide Hogue (1867-1955)

Such a beautiful picture of Adelaide and her husband!

Elizabeth Hogue (1870-1952) and Sara Hogue (1873-1960)

A picture of three of the sisters.  It strikes me that life was harder on the women than the men!

Marie Hogue (1876-1908)

Marie was married to Joseph Laroque and died at the young age of 32.  I have no pictures of her, only her gravestone.

Thomas Joseph Hogue, Pépère (1879-1955)

My grandfather, probably taken around the same time as the wedding picture which is featured in my blog banner.

Louis Hogue (1881-1960)

Pépère’s only brother. This picture was obviously taken at a celebration of a wedding anniversary. I think I can make out a “50” on top of the cake.  That would make it 1958.

Joseph Jean Baptiste Amable Hogue (1884-1887)

I have no pictures for this child who died at the age of three.

Virginie Hogue (1886-1982)

Virginie was married to Wilfred Napoleon Girardin, one of Mémère’s brothers.

I do wish I had more pictures of these relatives at younger ages!
