Philip Harrison McKINSTRY

Lucille Marie Antoinette RENO

  • Born: 1914, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
  • Marriage: Philip Harrison McKINSTRY in 1938 in Southbridge, Massachusetts

bullet  General Notes:

Russ McKinstry said that the original was Renaud. They consistently reported on the census that they were French Canadian. Even though the entire clan appeared in Southbridge and Sturbridge, Worcester County, Massachusetts by 1870, most members of each generation through 1930 said they had been born in Canada, and so had their wives. They said they were French Canadian.

The line seems to have:

John Reno age 69 b abt 1811 (1880 census)
Angella 61 b abt 1819 both born Canada
Peter 33 b 1847 (1880) b abt 1850 - 1910 census, both age 60 in 1910
Aremia 32 wife (b abt 1848) both born Canada
Frank 8 b abt 1872
Almeda 6 b abt 1874
Salvine 8 b abt 1872
Armena 1 b abt 1879 All born in Canada

This is not the same family, unless my notes are very screwed up. It has the rough look of same family in 1870 and 1880.

Joseph and family cannot be found in Massachusetts in 1900 nor in 1910; neither can Peter.

Peter married Diana Dastian, spelling approximate, supposedly locally in Southbridge, though she was born in Canada and said on 1920 census she was French Canadian (as did Peter though he reported he was born in Massachusetts.) He said both his paretns were French Canadian. They must have married around 1910, to judge from the subsequent births of their children. One daughter was born around 1911 in Ohio, according to the 1920 census. Two daughters were born around 1912 and 1913 back in Massachusetts, according to hte 1920 census. Three daughters were born in Canada between 1914 and about 1918, according to the 1920 census. The child born in 1914 was born in Calgary, Alberta according to family records. she is my brother in law's grandmother. According to Russ McKinstry, he needed to travel all the way to Calgary, Alberta, to find work as an optician. In 1920 they were back in Southbridge.


Lucille married Philip Harrison McKINSTRY in 1938 in Southbridge, Massachusetts. (Philip Harrison McKINSTRY was born in 1915 in Southbridge, Worcester, Massachusetts and died in Jul 2000 in Soutbridge, Worcester, Massachusetts.)
