Information on the Bastien family is mostly from Bernard Vanasse, firstname.lastname@example.org, who has a web site on the Vanasse family and its Bastien descendants (and also on stray Bastien's) Information on his children also from Colleen Martineau, email@example.com, from teh quebec-research list.
Birth dates for this family are from teh 1901 Canadian census, when the family lived in Saint-Germin-de-Grantham, Drummond & Arthabaska, Quebec. This is all I so far know of the family's origins.
I also have dob 18 Jan 1863 for him. Could be transcription error somewhere.
Grantham is in Drummond County, in the Eastern townships. The town is only a short distance from Ste-Victoire in Richelieu County.
In 1901, the family is found in Grantham, Drummond Co, Quebec.
In 1910, Henry was by himself in Southbridge. His family cannot be found anywhere.
In 1920, he is in Southbridge next to Peter Reno's household, with his entire family. Diana shows up married to Peter Reno. The record shows that the family emigrated in 1902, except for eldest son George who emigrated in 1901, and that several members of hte family were naturalized in Pennsylvania, indicating that the family lived there for awhile.
Henry Bastien was an agent of some sort - I can't read the rest of what the census record says.
The 1881 census suggests that Henry born about 1862 may have been the son of Edward Bastien, and lived in Ste-
Two of his sisters married in Southbridge, Massachusetts. They quite possibly married siblings; both were named Carpentier.
He apparently ran the Bastien Appliance Store.
Henri married Philomene GIRARD, daughter of Michel GIRARD and Marie DURAND, on 25 Feb 1884 in St-Germain-de-Grantham, Quebec. (Philomene GIRARD was born on 2 Dec 1856 in Saint-Germain-de-Grantham, Quebec and died after 1930.)
