Also Jacques Y. Lavallee was buried at Notre Dame Cemetery just last
year (3/7/2003). But I cannot identify who that is, how he's related,
or why he is going by Lavallee when everyone else I can find in this
line has been going by Lovely since about 1900.

If any of these names are connected to your family or your research,
please email me at

Thank you!
