Pictures & Comments

Yves Marie (Joe) and his brother Jean-Marie arrived in Margo Sask., in 1910 from France then shortly there after went back to France to get married. Yves Marie (Joe) and Anne-Marie Lavanant got married in France on the 17th. of May, 1911, and his brother Jean-Marie and Anastasie Lavanant got married on the same day. The four left for Canada shortly thereafter which took about two weeks by ship, many got sick on the ship. I had heard word that they where planning on coming in April, 1912, on the Titanic (good thing plans changed). When they arrived at Margo, Sask., they stayed with Francois and sister Anne Yvonne Le Sann. They built log homes on their homsteads. Yves Marie (Joe) farmed in Margo until he retired then moved to Victoria BC, and his son Alain took over the farm. You could spend hours listening to Yves Marie or Alain and there stories. As a grandson I would give full marks to Yves Marie and Anne-Marie, they where the greatest and I miss them.
