Telesphore's homestead cabin (in 1908) the people are probably Telesphore with sons Ernie and George;
Telesphore's stone house (built about 1911, the photo is marked 1918) with the old log cabin just visible behind it; the third photo seems to have been taken the same day, possibly with Hermina; Telesphore standing in his field and with sons Rene and Leo about the same time (Telesphore died in 1920); his empty house in 1931
Family Group Photos
A family gathering in about 1919: back row daughter Blanche Beaudoin, son Ernie, not sure, Telesphore, daughter Corinne, unknown boy; front row unknown woman, grandson Leo Beaudoin, his mother Esther Houle, the last woman is marked Hermina on the photo but it doesn't look like her, looks more like a Bonin.
A family gathering in about 1920: back row Hermina and her mother Celina Bonin, middle row Corinne LaPorte (wearing man's hat) and Stephanie Bonin, front row Leo LaPorte and Anna LaPorte Bonin.
My dad's (Ben LaPorte's) baptism in spring 1915 on Telesphore's farm; back row Anna LaPorte Bonin, Leah Cossette LaPorte holding Ben in his christening gown; Stephanie Bonin McNeil, Telesphore holding grandson Leo Beaudoin; front row Jeanne (unknown relation), Corinne LaPorte
Telesphore's Wife Hermina Bonin
The first photo is assumed to be Hermina from the house photo above but she would have been 58 in 1918; photos of Hermina in about 1920 and possibly in 30th Anniversary photo in 1914 and at the Tache Hospice in St Boniface shortly before her death in 1956 at age 96.
