Albert Joseph Lafortune

(21 June 1895 - 11 November 1977)
     Albert Joseph Lafortune was born on 21 June 1895 in Beaver Hills, North West Territories, Alberta, Canada. He was the son of Francis or Francois Xavier Lafortune and Mary Elizabeth Handy.
     Albert Joseph Lafortune married Alice Mary Whitwell, daughter of Thomas Whitwell and Susan Jane Mann, on 20 March 1924 in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
     The following is a letter written by Albert Joseph LaFortune in reference to St Francis Xavier Church at Mill Bay on Vancouver Island BC. It also makes references to numerous family members & some of the history that goes with them: This is the church in which father & mother were married, either in 1887 or 1888. They were the first couple to married there. Mother's mother, Grandma Handy, was the first to be buried there. Louis Gabourie was a friend of father's. He was with Xavier Vautrin, mother's grandfather in the old Northwest Fur Traders in 1822 when it was taken over by the Hudson's Bay Company. The Sam Handy was probably Grandpa Handy but might have been Uncle Sam. Will Rivers was the husband to a half-sister of Mother's, Amelia Rivers, nee Amelia LeGacy. (LeGace) John Grieg, was husband of another of Mother's half-sisters, Susan Grieg, nee LeGacy or LeGace. John & his father came from Scotland with Lord Selkirk's settlers for the Red River Settlement near Winnipeg, Manitoba. I knew them with the exception of Louis Gabourie. The Barry's were friends of Mother, Father & Uncle Joe LaFortune & his wife Frances. Frances was daughter of one of the brothers Verdier, early settlers at Saanich. They were from France. Old Mrs Barry I knew.She had a wonderful memory, could tell me when Father & Mother were married, when Frank & Fred were born etc. "Handy" you know of. Regarding the mention of her husband being buried in the United Church graveyard - it was then the Methodist graveyard. Mother's sister, Aunt Rebecca Robertson, later Carlson, told me when Grandpa Handy was 98, he died a few days before 99, he asked her to ask the Catholic priest if he could be buried beside his wife. The priest told her only if he became a Catholic. He thought it over a few days then told her "you tell the priest to go to hell & I'll go to the Methodists. Before she died a few years ago Aunt Ellen Dykes, born Ellen Handy, first married to a Cameron, whom she divorced for cruelty, Cameron once tried to kill her with an axe, had a stone placed on each of the graves of her Father & Mother. The work was done by her son-in-law & grandson Alex & Jim McAllister. Joe LaFortune referred to was Joe LaFortune, brother to our Father. Dad told me he & Joe came from a poor family, though at on time they must have been well to do, judging from their proper family name "Tellier de LaFortune". They were from St. Lin, Quebec. Dad told me his Mother's maiden name was LaRamee. St. Lin was where Sir Wilfred Laurier was born. Incidentally Laremy, Wyoming was named after a LaRamee. The town of Laremy, Wyoming learned he was a French Canadian, wrote to Quebec but that Province would find no record of the particular LaRamee though there were families of that name in Quebec. More about Frank & Joe. They never had a chance to go to school; worked on the farm then in the woods from ages 12 & 10. At that age they worked the woods in Quebec, the New England States, south to Florida, then to Mexico. Frank left Joe in Mexico, got to Nevada, where he & a partner filed a claim on a silver mine. Don't know the exact place or name of the mine. It was so successful Father had enough money to visit his family in St. Helene, at the age of about 35. Before leaving his partner had him sign papers, he said were so he could run the mine in Father's absence. At the time father could neither read nor write. On returning from St. Helene found he had signed over the mine to his partner & was out altogether. He then learned to read & write. From there he went to Vancouver Island to again work in the woods. In the meantime Joe then kept in touch somehow. Joe had someone write Father he was sick with Yellow Fever. Father sent for him. Joe filed for a pre-emption on eighty acres at Cobble Hill, after working with Father. Joe married Frances Verdier. Father, Grandpa Handy, Louis Gabourie & others built them a log house on LaFortune Road. Later Father filed a pre-emption next to Joe's & married Mother. Before leaving for Edmonton he sold his place for $500.00. Mrs. Samuelson is the daughter of Rebecca Robertson, our Aunt. At death she was Rebecca Carlson, her first husband, Hank Robertson, was from Little Rock, Arkansas. Don't know which of the Grieg's referred to were but presume they were the children of John Grieg & Susan Grieg, nee Legacy or LeGace. John Grieg did have a brother so it may be the brother's children. Ivan Monk & Helen Best were twins. Mrs. Kathy Robertson was the wife of our cousin Phillip (Pete) Robertson. She was from Scotland. Three of the Deloume family I knew. One is not mentioned as he left the Church, being an agnostic. The other two had a farm, the brother a life-long bachelor, his sister an old maid. They lived in a lovely old log cabin. They told me Frank & Joe had helped build it, in particular doing the floor & inside walls with a (broad axe) not the correct name. So smooth were they one could imagine having been sawn, with few axe marks showing, almost as if they had been planed. The Rivers were Bill Rivers, his wife Aunt Amelia.
     Albert died on 11 November 1977 in Vancouver?, British Columbia, Canada, aged 82.
