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 file stlouir 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.  Other useful websites containing much information and sources about our St. Louises, and many other related families

I had to move and rename this website away from because will  cancel their web hosting during 2010;  this was a service for their dial-up networking customers such as me, formerly. 

I apologize for the "plain vanilla" appearance of this web site. When I began it, I wrote out the HTML and had to upload files using FTP with a phone line connection, so I didn't have the time to get fancy (and still don't have much time for it.)

The reason I include Gadiou in the title here is that there are other unrelated families named St. Louis, and I wanted to specify what "flavor" of St. Louises are my line. 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, in Quebec, as a Gadiou-dit-St-Louis name, and his sons in my line 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 returned to Canada were, respectively, Jacques St-Louis's family in Yamachiche, Québec and my father's uncle Ephraim J. St. Louis of Nanaimo and Vancouver 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)

The main pictures here currently are of St. Louises and their descendants on my father's 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 will often be given in parentheses. The St. Louis name can be spelled variously: St. Louis, St Louis, St-Louis, Saint-Louis, or Stlouis; here you will ordinarily find the form St. Louis with a period after the "t" and a space before the "L.". I've tried to include some alternate spellings of the family names. My father said the correct spelling was St Louis, without the period after St

I will try to put several pictures on each web page, but not so many that the individual pages will load overly slowly over a phone line internet connection. The pictures were scanned by me from photographs or slides using UMax or HP scanners using Photodeluxe or HP software, and are all JPG files of as low a file size as seemed tolerable. For simplicity I'm not using any thumbnail pictures. I've tried to resize the pictures so that they will be a good size in the available display space on a 800x600 pixel display monitor running Internet Explorer in Windows; the captions will be a bit below the pictures in many cases. Also please contact me to submit your own similar pictures, especially portraits, of our mutual ancestors and their families, to add to our growing family tree, which has pictures for leaves!

Updated 10 May 2010
I've added a picture of my dad's cousin Pearl (daughter of Ephraim James St. Louis) and her husband William J. Hughes, both pics from Will Wiss.

I've added a portrait of Ephraim and Marie DesAnges St. Louis from Will Wiss taken in Kaukauna, "from a Langlois Langlais line, see"

Earlier I had the wrong picture for Rev Philip St Louis; it was a picture of Rev Francis Laurent.  I got a correct picture of Rev St Louis ("Uncle Manus") from Will Wiss and have fixed up the captions of the pictures of both Reverends on p13.

I've replaced the pictures of Olivine St. Louis Laurent and her daughters with better  ones from Brian Zalewski. p13

I've added two pictures of young Marie T. St. Louis, one of which includes her parents - both pix from Will Wiss. p13.  Also good portraits of Marie and of her father George from the Navarres website.

I added a picture of Diadamia Ann Paul Copeland (from Gael)

I added a picture of "Aunt Jen", presumed close relative of Margaret Matilda Moore in Dina's family.  Also a jpg of a census page with the Moores in it.

To find a person in this web page, click below on an underlined name link in the list to see the picture, or click any other numbered links on the same line to show other picture pages containing the same individual. If at first you don't see the picture you want on a page, scroll down to find the appropriate picture(s). There will be about 3-5 pictures per page. I've tried to keep more or less closely related people on each page, but this will not be true in some cases. I have 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!!
