My deceased cousin, Julie (Wilkins) Koop is a Fortin descendent as follows:

~ daughter of Robert E Wilkins and Adele Julie FORTIN

        ~ Adele Julie FORTIN was the daughter of Damien FORTIN and May Hubbard

                ~ Damien FORTIN was the son of Victor Lazare FORTIN and Julie Remillard

 

Julie had no children and I believe her mother, Adele, may have been an only child.  Based on information found on an ancestry.com page http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~npmelton/sfbfor.htm), Damien was one of four, the other three being Octave, Mary & Agnes. 

 

Many of Julie's personal paper have ended up with me.  There is very little genealogical information in terms of dates or family history but there are many wonderful portraits taken in the late 1800's / early 1900 plus a couple of albums of family photos.  Not many are marked although there is one identified as the four siblings, Damien, Octave, Mary, and Agnes plus another that is Victor Lazare Fortin.  I expect someone familiar with this particular branch of the Fortin family might be able to identify many of the pictures.

 

I am not a Fortin descendent but feel fortunate to have many treasured old portraits of my ancestors.  I would really like to find a good home for the Fortin pictures in my possession.   

 

If there is anyone who can help, it would be much appreciated.

 

Best regards,

FORTIN FAMILY PHOTO COLLECTION

 

~ Victor Lazare FORTIN

~ Julie REMILLARD Fortin

~ Their Children - Marie Reine, Damien Edmond, Agnes Julie, and Octave Victor.

 

My best guess is that the photos were taken in about 1875.  This is a guesstimate based on information that Octave, the youngest child in the group photo was born in 1873.
