St. Louis (Gadiou) Family Pictures

Robert V. St. Louis


I offer this web page to show pictures of ancestors and their families that Nadine and I have obtained from many of our dear family members over the years. It is an adjunct to my Family Tree files on and, and is a tribute to all those ancestors whose struggles for life and for a better life made our own lives and modest accomplishments possible. 

I apologize for the "plain vanilla" appearance of this web site. When I began it, I wrote out the HTML and uploaded files with a phone line connection

The reason I include Gadiou in the title here is that there are other unrelated families named St. Louis. My paternal line goes back through a string of St. Louises to Gilles Gadiou and his father Gillaume Gadiou. Gilles's son Jean Baptiste in Québec seems to have been the first in my paternal line to have adopted the name St. Louis, as Gadiou-dit-St-Louis, and his sons in my line, (Nicolas Joseph, Jean-Baptiste, Ephraim, John B. etc) kept St. Louis but dropped the Gadiou name. Some others in the family kept the Gadiou name. The only St. Louises in my family presently known to me who remained in or resettled into Canada were, respectively, Jacques and Réjeanne St-Louis's family in Yamachiche, Québec, my father's uncle Ephraim James St. Louis of Nanaimo and Vancouver B.C. and his son William A. St. Louis in Burns Lake, B.C.

For vital help with my/our genealogies I'd like especially to acknowledge Marie Therese St. Louis, Laurie Lou Nisja (Becker; Shawhan), Gael Stott (Huntley), Frances "Penny" Dignan (Thornley), Felix and Harald Nyman, Margaretha Lindholm, Marie Erickson (Hall), Marcia Johnson (Ikonen), Arlene Halvor (Kastelle), Betty Provost (Hanauska), William C. Wissbroecker ("Will Wiss"), Clarice Clourneya, and Thorolf Aspholm.

The main pictures here currently are of St. Louises and their descendants on my father's "western branch" side of the family. I've also included pictures of my mother's Swedish-Finn family and my wife Nadine's parents' Small and Boie families. All pictured here have, variously, connections to Wisconsin, Western Finland, Western Washington, Southern California, Louisiana, New York, Oregon, Quebec, or British Columbia.  I often include both birth and married names for women in the index below. The index shows some alternate name spellings and nicknames, but the primary lookup names will be the birth names; married names may be given too. The St. Louis name may be spelled: St. Louis, St Louis, St-Louis, Saint-Louis, or Stlouis; here you will ordinarily find the form St. Louis.  My father Vincent T. said the spelling was St Louis, and that the name change from Gadiou occurred after an ancestor fought in "the battle of Fort St Louis." Dad also said the "original" St Louis was a shoemaker! I later discovered he had referred to Ephraim St. Louis, my grandfather's grandfather, who originally brought the family to Wisconsin from Quebec in the 1830's.

Several pictures are on each web page. Most were scanned by me from photographs or slides. I've included documents regarding Johanna Gästgivars (Nana), a Smulter genealogy, Josephine Shinners, Margaret Matilda Moore, Gust Nordman Mattson, and Rev Philip  St. Louis (Manus)

If at first you don't see the picture you want on a page, scroll down.  I've tried to keep more or less closely related people on each page. I've indented people in my wife Nadine's family for clarity.  Click the Back arrow on the Windows toolbar or equivalent to return to this index page. Enjoy!!
