You hit the jackpot for me again. That is great I can't believe you found
that. Just like my Mary Ann LaBelle Johncour [LaBolle / LaBalle - 1921
death] Josephine Lacour did not have an obituary outside of the local area
there. I never would have found her without you. Thank you so much for
passing that on. Basically there was an error on-line as to Frances Lacour
[Lagour] as being the person that lay next to Peter Lacour [Laqour] in the
Union Cemetery. Her stone was said to have been unreadable at the Union
Cemetery, so anything could have happened there perhaps just by an
assumption that is was his wife. Josephine is not listed in the cemetery
records of the Holy Cross Cemetery, however the on-line records are only
particially done for that cemetery. On-line records only have this cemetery
being located in Spangler Borough. Do you have any idea where this cemetery
LaBolle, LaBalle, LaBelle
Eugene or possibly John Eugene LaBolle immigration approx. 1876 / 1877. He
brought his wife Josephine Perlin & 3 children. Ernest, Mary Ann, & Francis
Henri from France. Eugene was said to have died in 1879 (approx. 42) before
his daughter Mary Jane was born 10/1879. It is believed to be that Mary
Jane was born in Houtzdale. No death records have been found for Eugene &
may not be found due to fires destroying the land.
Josephine Perlin LaBolle / LaBelle / LaBalle was first found on the 1880
Clearfield County Census as Josephine Lacour under the household of Peter
Lacour. Ernest, Mary Ann, Francis Henri & Mary Jane were all listed as
LaBolle on this record. The census records of 1900 only have Peter &
Josephine as being married 11 years, so which record is correct there.
Ernest LaBelle married Mary Ann Johncour. Their children were Frank
Johncour, Ernestina, William, Mary Theresa, M. Ellen, James, Myrtle & Clara
This family went under the spelling of LaBelle.
Mary Ann LaBolle married Peter Johncour. Their children were Peter,
Sylvester, Mary J., Jennie E., & Adeline A.
Francis Henri (known as Fronce) married Gerdy Dora Beckwith (from Hastings).
Their children were Lloyd B., Gazel & Cecil F. This family went under the
spelling of LaBalle.
Mary Jane married Alexander Lann. Mary Janes marriage application listed
at the Cambria County Court House has her as LaBalle & LaBolle. Their
children were Anna, Helen, William, Marie, & John Alexander.
Josephine & Peter Lacour had 2 children.
Josephine B. (born 11/20/1880) & Tressa (born 1883).
Josephine Lacour married John Sibert of Hastings. Their children were
Edward, Hazel, William A., Dorothy L., Pauline, Robert & Donald.
Tressa Lacour married John Hupert. It is her home that Josephine passed
away at right befoe the 1910 census. Tressa & John were shown on the 1910
census records on Crawford Avenue, Spangler PA. Cambria County. Children of
Tressa & John were Gertrude, Alfred E., Dorothy C., Robert J., John D.,
Bertha M., Daniel F., & Donald P.
