    When the 1870 U.S. census was taken, Flavien and Celeste were living with the family of their son, Flavien and Zoe Chartier in Nashua, (Hillsborough), New Hampshire. The occupations of both Flavien’s are listed as “laborer”. Also, shown living in this household was Zoe Chartier, age 3; Hermache?? Chartier, age 17, Sophie Chartier, age 19; and Lucy Chartier, age 15. Zoe is the daughter of Flavien and Zoe (Girard) Chartier; and Hermache, Sophie and Lucy are probably children of Flavien and Celeste Chartier. Also in the household were two young girls; Inalmine?? and Anna Inoucet, age 5 and 3 respectively. When the 1880 census was taken, Flavian was still living in Nashua; however, thee name in this census was spelled “Sharkey”. Celeste was not in the household which probably means she died sometime after 1870. Flavien’s occupation was “Gardner”. Also living in his household were his two daughters, Sophia, age 19 and Lucy, age 24 and a niece, Anna Mousette, age 14. Sophia worked in a cotton mill whereas Lucy was keeping house. Flavien and Celeste’s son, Flavien and his family had moved to Manitoba before this census was taken. They can be found in the 1881 Canadian census.
    Note Zoe and Eleonore Chartier were put into this family even though the marriage repertoire says they are daughters of Luc-Augustin and Rosalie Gazaille-St Germain. - - . The church record also said Flavien m. Zoe Girard was also a child of Luc-Augustin and Rosalie. The census record confirmed that Flavien was a son of Avelle-Flavien and Marie-Celeste Leblanc. These three children can not be children of Luc-Augustin and Rosalie because their marriage dates come much too close to the marriage date of Luc-Augustin and Rosalie. The same is true for Eusebe Chartier m. Louisa Cote

    When the 1880 census was taken, “Dennis Shirkey”, age 27 was a boarder in the home of George and Susan “Weed” in Nahma (Delta), Michigan. Both George and Dennis are fisherman. In this census Dennis says he was born in Wisconsin and that his parents were born in Canada. On the same census page, there is an Edward Shirky, age 23 who says he was born in Wisconsin and that his parents were born in Wisconsin. The names Dennis Sharkey and Susan Williams first came from the Delta County, Michigan marriage record for Susie Sharkey and Joseph Kequom. Susan Sharkey said her parents were born in Wisconsin. When the 1900 census was taken, Susan “Sherkie” appears to be a widow as there is no husband in the household. She and her three children are listed as Indians, and are living in Bay De Noc Township in Delta County, Michigan. In this census Susan says she is the mother of 7 children with 4 of them living. George, Susan, and Joseph Sharkey say they are ½ Indian which probably means their father is a full white French-Canadian; and it is now clear that he is a “Chartier”. In the previous household is the Norman Williams family where both his mother and grandmother are also in the household. The grandmother, Mary Williams is listed as 102 years old. This 1900 census also says that George, Susan, and Joseph “Sherkie” are members of the Ottawa Tribe, and every member of the Williams family is Indian. According to David Frederick who is a descendant of the Joseph Kequom, Susan’s Indian name can be translated to something like “She brings water to the fire”. When the 1910 census was taken, George and Joseph Sharkey were living in the home of their brother-in-law, Moses Beaver. Moses’ wife’s name is Elizabeth. Elizabeth is a daughter of Susan and her first husband, John or George Weedon. The Delta County marriage record says Elizabeth’s maiden name is “Weedon”and she and Moses were married on September 30, 1894. Susan had a daughter, Elizabeth Weedon by her first marriage to John or George Weedon. Elizabeth married Moses Beaver in Nahma on 30 Sep 1894. The record says she was 18; but the 1880 census shows her being born in ca 1879 which would make her closer to 15 or 16. Susan’s marriage record says her first husband’s is name was George Mead, and they were married on 16 Nov 1877 in Escanaba.

    When the 1881 Canadian census was taken, this family was living in St-Athanase (Iberville), PQ. Moise was a cultivateur. Also, in the household was Moise’s father and mother, Joseph and Florentine Chartier. Joseph’s occupationis listed as “Rentier”. When the 1900 U.S. census was taken, the “Moses Shortsleve” family was living in Brooklyn (Windham), Connecticut. There is no occupation listed for Moses, but Odena was a laborer, Milliner; Rose F. was a sales lady in a dry goods store; Venerand was a shoes salesman; Victorien is listed as a daughter and was a grocery saleman; Emma was a laborer in a millinary; and Moses, Joseph, Alpheric, Lucien and Severian were at school. In the 1900 census Moses says he immigrated in 1886. Rosalie says she is the mother of 17 children with 14 of them living. When the 1910 census was taken, this family was still living in Brooklyn. Moise, Joseph A. and Severin had no occupations; and Emma was a milliner clerk. Also in the household was Henry Gareau who was a 30 year old widowed boarder, Bernadette Chartier who was a 16 year old boarder who was born in Rhode Island and Louise Jarjilly who was a 69 year widower who was also a boarder. Based upon her age, Bernadette Chartier was the daughter of Benoit-Arthur Chartier and Elodie Fournier. Henry Gareau is probably the wife of Odena Chartier who must have died before 1910. When the 1920 census was taken, Moise was a widower. The census record has his age as 90 years, but is should be 85. Also in the household were his son Ovila V. Chartier and his wife, Elodia and their three children; Gerard. Pauline and Marguerite; his daughter, Emma, his single sons, Joseph and Severien; and a 27 year old niece, Mary Ange Chartier who was the daughter of Damasse Chartier and Rosalie Dupuis.

    When the 1900 census was taken, the “Albert Valley” family was living on 14 Carrier Court in Haverhill (Essex), Massachusetts. Albert was a shoe maker. Also in the household was Mary Barrows, daughter of Louise. Mary says she is married; that she has been married for 1 year; but there is no husband in the household. Also in the household are Josephine and Willie Bryant. In this census Louise says she is the mother of 13 children with 5 of them living. When the 1910 census was taken, Louise R. Vallee said she was divorced. She and her children were living at 60 Plummer St. in Manchester (Hillsborough), New Hampshire. Also in the household was William J. Bryant (widower); Jennie, Agnes and Mable Vallee; Joseph and Lilla L. Tuttle (son and daughter); and Isabelle Roy (boarder) who was only 1/12 year old. Louise was a stitcher in a shoe shop; William was a laborer in a leather board; and Agnes was a liner in shoe shop. In this census Louise says she is the mother of 18 children with 6 of them living. When the 1920 census was taken, Louise Tuttle and her son Joseph and her daughter Lillian were living on Sommerville St. in Manchester. Louise was a stitcher in a shoe shop and Joseph wored in a cotton mill. When the 1930 census was taken, “Louisa Tuttle” was living at 538 Silver St. in Manchester. She was still a stitcher in a shoe shop. Also in this house were Joseph and Mabel Roberts. Mabel is 29 years old which is the right age for the daughter of Louise; however, this Mabel said she was first married when she was 17 which would indicate she was married when the 1920 census was taken. When Louise died, she was living at 44 Walnut St. in Manchester. Her obit said she came to the U.S. 70 years ago and she had been a resident of Manchester for 47 years. Her survivors are: Mrs. Roland St Onge; Mrs. Arthur Boisvert, Mrs. Joseph Roberts, and Mrs. Albert Gauthier. Another daughter, Mrs. Lapointe died two months before Louise. At the time of Louise’s death, she was survived by 14 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren. According to her obit she was the last survivor of her family. Tragically, the first three of Louises four husbands died from some form of tuberculosis (phthisis, consumption, etc.) . Joseph Tuttle’s death records lists him as married. Considering the 1908 birth of Lilla, it is doubtfull that Joseph and Louise ever formally divorced.

    When Volume V was published in 1983, Pierre Chartier m. Rose Lebeau was placed on page 263 in the unconnected marriage section. The 1880 U.S. census confirmed that Pierre belongs to this family. Marriage, birth and death repertoires from Rhode Island and Massachusetts seem to indicate that Pierre Chartier had at least three marriages and children from the first the first two marriages. We know that Pierre Chartier m. Alexina Guillotte is a son of Joseph Chartier and Elmire Charron. The connection of Pierre Chartier m. Margaret Churchill was made from the 1930 census where Peter Chartier and his wife Margaret are living at 243 S. Main St. in Attleboro (Bristorl), Mass. with the three children from his marriage to Alexina. When the 1900 census was taken, this family was living on County Street in Attleboro (Bristol), Mass. Peter was a “jeweler polisher”. When the 1910 census, Peter Chartier, his daughter, Rose, and his son, Thomas were living on Central Avenue in Seekonk (Bristol), Mass. Peter was a “polisher in a jewelry shop”. Rose was a “weaver in a cotton mill” and Thomas was an “apprentice in a barber shop”. In the 1910 census three other children, Alfredle, Lucia and Louis can be found in the St-Joseph Orphanage in Fall River. They were probably placed there shortly after their mother died. When Peter married Alexina, the church record said he was from Missisquoi, Quebec and was a resident of Hebronville, Mass. Alexina was also from Missisiquoi and a resident of Hebronville. When the 1920 census was taken, the family was living at 172-1/2 Pine St. in Attleboro, Mass. Peter was a barber. In 1930 Peter had his own barber shop, and his son, Leo was also a barber. Anita worked in a jewelry store.

    When “Adrian Emile Chartier registered for the WWI draft, he was single and living in at 1 Grand St. in Plattsburgh (Clinton), New York. He was a clerk for Q.M. Dept. USA in Plattsburgh. When the 1920 census was taken, Adrian and Linda were living at 72 Main St. in North Hempstead (Nassau), New York. Adrian was a clerk for the Long Island Railroad, and Linda was a clerk for NYCRR. In April 1924 Linda and Marjorie entered the U.S. at the Montreal port. In her declaration, Linda said she had lived in the U.S. from 1890-1920; she was going into the U.S. to visit her mother, Katherine Hendrickson; and that she was Scandinavian. Her husband “Edrien” lived at 1714a Church Ave. in Brooklyn. The declaration for Marjorie said she was born in Montreal and that she was coming into the U.S. to see her father at 9739 Woodhaven Blvd. When the 1925 New York census was taken, this family was living at 9739 Woodhaven Blvd. on Richmond Hill, New York City (Queens), New York. This census says Adrian is 29, born in Canada; Linda is 35 born in the U.S.; and Marjorie is 4. This census says Adrian and Marjorie have only been in the U.S. 1 year. Adrian’s occupation is difficult to read; but it may say “clerical work”. Also When the 1930 census was taken, this family was living at 10147 107th Street in New York (Queens), New York. Linda says she is a widow. She is a clerk for an Insurance Company. Also in the home is a 16 year old boy, Lambert Hoffman who is Linda’s son. Lambert is an office boy for an Insurance Company. When the 1940 census was taken, this family was living at 17 Lincoln Avenue in Brooklyn, New York. For some strange reason, Adrian is listed in this cenus as bank cashier. Also in the home was a 26 year old with the name Lambert H. Chartier where his mother, Linda says he was born in Canada. But in the 1930 census his name is Lambert Hoffman, and the census record says he was born in New York. Lambert was an inspector for an insurance company.

    William rented farms in the surrounding areas of Gouverneur, Redwood, and Rossi, NY. Two of the farms were called “Spring Valley Farm” and “Haskin Farm”. The first five children went to School District 18, Goose Bay, town of Alexandria on the St. Lawrence River. Even though, William and Lena spoke French, they would not teach it to their children as they were now in America. William after settling the family in Philadelphia became Town Superintendent. He could not write English so his next to youngest daughter (Leona Mae) who on February 1, 2000 was the only one of his 11 children that was still alive would do the "books" for her father. Leona would deliver the "books" back in case anyone had any question. William had a terrific memory and that is what kept him on the job.
    William-Xavier’s father according to his death certificate is William-Xavier Shorkey, Sr. and his mother is Delphare Gareau. However, a baptismal record found in Notre Dame in Ogdensburg shows a Joseph-Odilone Chartier born to Odilone and Delphina Gareault. This is how the record is written: “1880 Die 16 Junii baptism Josephum Odelonem ex matrimonio illegetimo Odilone Chartier et Delphina Gareault. Patrini Xaverius Marrouine et Auxcilda Gareault.” This baptism took place on 16 Jun 1880, which was about four months after William-Xavier Chartier was born. This connection was made with the help of Kristin Grow DeCare, Debbie Gilligan, and Elaine Shorkey. Since Odilon Chartier’s first wife did not die until March 1884, it is likely that there was a divorce. Shortly thereafter, Odilon married Delphine Gareau, widower of Paul Demers. Paul died in March 1879. Because of the divorce, the marriage between Odilon and Delphine is recorded in the church as “illegetimo”. Xavier is William Shorkey’s middle name, which comes from the male witness, Xaverius Marrouine, at his baptism. Note: in the 1930 census the name is spelled “Sharkey”
    After William-Xavier died, Lena’s last address was 311 North Massey in Watertown. She was the cook for the Watertown jail.

    When Volume V of the Chartier books was being written in 1982, the information on the descendants of Joseph Chartier and Aurelie Richard was provided by Mrs. Milo Sharkey of Hood River, Oregon. But, Mrs. Sharkey had obtained a lot of the information from Bonnie Baldwin who had been researching this family since the 1950’s. The 12 children shown on page 165 and 166 of Volume V came from the research of these two ladies. Now, based upon new research by Jan Lyman, another child has been discovered. This child, Joseph, Jr. was born on 14 Oct 1841 in St. Jean, Quebec. According to the church records, he was born out of wedlock, and baptized as Joseph Inconnu (unknown). It is possible, however, that Joseph and Aurelie may have had a civil marriage in Clinton County, New York, which is where Joseph’s parents lived. But, that may not be true since French-Canadian couples that had such civil marriages did not have their children baptized until after the church endorsed the marriage. When Joseph and Aurelie were married, Joseph is listed as a “minor child” of Antoine Chartier and the late Francoise Boivin of Plattsburgh, NY. What that means, I am not sure, since Joseph was 19 when he and Aurelie were married. Based upon the birth dates of the two Joseph’s, Joseph, Sr. was 18 when Aurelie became pregnant with Joseph, Jr. In the 1851 Quebec census, Joseph, Jr. is shown living with his grandparents Mathurin and Marie-Magdeleine (Bourgeois) Richard. In that census, Joseph, Jr. is listed as being 11 years old. If the census information is correct, he would have been born ca 1840.
    According to the descendants, of Joseph and Aurelie (Richard) Chartier/Sharkey, the family came to the United States on 17 May 1851. The family seems to think they first located in Michigan, but show up in Ste Anne, Illinois by July 1856 where their daughter, Salina was born. The family says their son Louis was born in Three Oaks, Michigan in March 1861. They also said their second to last child, William was born in Three Oaks in July 1868, and their last child, Middie, was born in Kankakee, Ill. in Sep 1868. Sometime between those two dates the family returned to Illinois.
    It is possible that Joseph, Jr. may have never lived with his parents and was raised by his grandparents. Until this new information was discovered, it appears that none of the descendants of Joseph and Aurelie in the United States knew of Joseph, Jr. Also, it is fairly clear that he did not go to the United States with his parents because the 1910 census says Joseph, Jr. came to the U.S. in 1854. His naturalization papers, however, says he came to the U.S. through Keeseville, NY in May 1856. The family of Joseph, Jr. kept the Chartier name whereas the descendants of his brothers and sisters became Sharkey when they relocated to Indiana and points farther west.
    In the Indiana records Aurelie is also called Arvilla, Orilla and Emelia. The name Emilie Richare appears on the marriage certificate for Joseph Chartier when he married Sophronie Bouley. However, a marriage registrar in Hudson, Mass. lists Joseph, Jr.’s mother as Laura Richare.

    Leon and Helene were first cousins. When the 1901 and 1911 Canadian census were taken, this family can be found in Aylmer (Wright), PQ. In the 1901 census Leon was a woodcutter. However, Leon can also be found in Burrard, British Columbia in the 1901 census where his occupation is listed as “captain”.

    Léon was born 23 August1860 in Aylmer. He married a first cousin, Helene Daly who was born 17 March 1861 in Aylmer. They were married 5 June 1884 at St. Paul Catholic Church. They had seven children. Their first child died at 5 years of age.
    As a youth, he attended school. In 1881, he lived at home and worked as an engineer. No reference was made to the type of engineer he was. Most likely he worked as an engineer on one of the steamers that operated out of Alymer.
    In 1891, he worked in the furniture business. he is employed as a furniture tester.
    The 1901 Census stated that he worked as a wood cutter when he lived Aylmer. He earned $800 per year. The Census also recorded that he and Helene could read and write and spoke English and French. Their children attended school.
    Between 1901 and 1913, Léon became involved in politics. He served 4 terms as an Alderman, with the first term in 1902 and was mayor for one term, 1911-1913. According to the book Pioneers of the Upper Ottawa published in 1909, he had a title of Captain. No information was provided on how he received the title. However, there is another 1901 Census sheets that also shows him living in what is now Vancouver British Columbia with his occupation stated as Captain. This data could indicate that he worked as a Captain for a while between 1891 and 1901.
    The 1911 Census showed that Léon was a mayor and earned a salary of $1000 per year. The Census also reported that he had life and accidental death/injury insurance. Léon took over the position of Post Master on 28 May 1912 in addition being mayor. He held this position until 16 May 1913 when it was taken over by his son Emmanuel.
    Léon did not win his re-election bid for mayor. He claimed unfairness on the part of the man that beat him. The new mayor claimed that Léon should not have been able to run because he did not pay his taxes.
    About the end of 1913, he and Helene moved to Windsor, Essex, Ontario. On 6 January 1924, the day of the death of their daughter Alma, they lived at 471 Church Street in Windsor.
    On 17 August 1927, at age 67, Léon had a work permit to commute to Detroit, Wayne, Michigan to work as a carpenter. The permit was revoked on 3 May 1930 because he had not visited or worked in the USA for 16 months. He and Helena lived at the Church Street address in Windsor.
    Helene passed away on 5 October 1933 in Windsor at age 72 after being ill for a week.
    In a Biography about Léon it stated that, at age 87, he traveled to Alymer to attend the city centennial celebration. A year later, he and brother Edward went to visit their sister in Timmins, Ontario
    Léon passed away 23 March 1950 at his home in Windsor at age 90. He is interned in St. Paul Cemetery in Aylmer.

    VENTURA COUNTY ROUNDUP Simi Valley
    July 08, 2000 by TINA DIRMANN
    A Simi Valley man was in serious condition after allegedly being shot twice in the chest by his mother-in-law, who later suffered a massive heart attack as police were arresting her, authorities said.
    Police said Deloris Chartier, 64, of Simi Valley arrived at her daughters home in the 700 block of Camden Vista Court about 6:30 a.m. to baby-sit her two grandchildren while her daughter and son-in-law went to work. But shortly after arriving, Chartier and son-in-law Glenn Barry, 36, began to argue.

    Authorities refused to comment on the source of the argument, which grew increasingly heated. Police said Chartier became enraged, pulled out a handgun in her possession and fired at Barry, striking him twice in the chest.
    Barry was taken to Simi Valley Hospital and Health Care Center, where he underwent surgery. He was listed in serious condition and is expected to recover.
    Chartier fled in her pickup truck, but police spotted her a few blocks away and pulled her over. While placing her under arrest, Chartier had a heart attack and also was taken to Simi Valley Hospital.
    Chartier, who has no prior criminal record, also was listed in serious condition in the intensive-care unit.
    Although Lisa Barry and her children, a boy and a girl, were in the home during the attack, they did not see the shooting, said Simi Valley Police Sgt. Bob Gardner.
    Gardner said he is unaware of any prior domestic problems at the Barry household, noting police had never been called to the home before.


    Mother-in-Law Faces Trial in Shooting
    VENTURA COUNTY ROUNDUP East County / Simi Valley
    October 11, 2000 by TRACY WILSON
    A Simi Valley grandmother is scheduled to stand trial Nov. 28 on charges that she attempted to murder her son-in-law during a domestic dispute.
    Deloris Chartier, 64, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and firearms charges Tuesday during an arraignment in Ventura County Superior Court.

    Chartier, who has no criminal record, faces a possible life prison sentence if convicted.
    After the hearing, her lawyer declined to discuss Chartiers defense but acknowledged that there may have been allegations of child abuse that prompted the dispute.
    It is a very tragic situation, said Deputy Public Defender Jan Helfrich, adding that an investigation is ongoing. I dont feel comfortable commenting on it now.
    According to evidence presented at a recent preliminary hearing, Chartier arrived at her daughters Simi Valley home July 7 to baby-sit her two grandchildren and got into an argument with son-in-law Glenn Barry, 36.
    As the dispute intensified, Chartier allegedly pulled a handgun and fired at Barry, hitting him twice in the chest.
    Chartier drove from the scene but was spotted by police a few blocks away and arrested. She suffered a heart attack during the arrest and was hospitalized.
    Helfrich said Chartier remains under a doctors care and is being housed in the medical unit of the Ventura County Jail. She remains jailed in lieu of $750,000 bail.

    When Byron married Della, he said on the marriage record that he had been married once before. When the 1900 census was taken, the Byron J. Carter family was living at 214 Washington St. in Jackson, Michigan. Byron was a dealer in bicycles. When the 1920 census was taken, Della and her two children were living at 105 Third St. in Jackson. When the 1930 census was taken, Della was living by herself at 107 _______ St. in Jackson.

    Byron J. Carter built a steam car in 1902 and joined with two fellow Jackson investors, George Matthews, owner of Fuller Buggy Co., and Charles Lewis, president of Lewis Spring and Axle Co., in 1903 to form the Jackson Automobile Co. to manufacture steam and gasoline engine cars. Carter left this company in 1905 to pursue his idea of a friction drive automobile when he formed the Cartercar Motorcar Company. Production began in 1905 with the 1 and 2-cylinder models. Only 2-cylinder cars were produced from 1906 through 1909. Only 4-cylinder cars were produced beginning with the 1910 model. Cartercar was known for their gearless, friction drive transmission. Cartercar was absorbed into General Motors in October 26, 1909.

    A skilled mechanic, Carter had developed a special friction transmission which, according to him, was infinitely superior to anything else on the market. He set about demonstrating its virtues—and those of the car he built around it—with exceptional energy. Carter made no claims for the speed of his auto; what he was selling was strength, toughness, and flexibility. He sent his car to state fairs, ran it up library steps and down cog railway inclines, lashed it to massive traction engines, and bulled it ahead through snowstorms. He had every accomplishment photographed, and ran the pictures in his brochures. Occasionally, Carter would manufacture a bizarre situation to show special virtues of his machine: its ease in starting was demonstrated by the midget Count Magri, who cranked it up while his wife, General Tom Thumb widow, looked on; its supernatural smoothness allowed Mr. Doan, a tightrope walker, to teeter his way over ten miles of countryside on a rope fixed above the body of the auto. Carters campaign was effective enough to sway at least one highly knowledgeable car owner. William Durant, the founder of General Motors, was so impressed by the frictionless drive that in 1909 he bought the patent and the company. Six years later, he quietly shut down the whole enterprise.

    In 1910, Byron suffered a broken jaw and arm when he stopped to help a woman with the crank-starter on her car. The crank, linked directly to the cars drive shaft, was capable of bucking out of the hands of its "cranker," and Carter suffered for it. His injuries grew complicated and, combined with a case of pneumonia, killed him. The death of Byron so distressed his close friend Henry Leland, founder of Cadillac that he hired Charles F. Kettering to develop a self-starting mechanism which he applied for a U.S. patent in 1911.

    When the 1850 census was taken, this “Edward Shirky” family was living in Racine, Wisconsin. The census records says they were both born in Ireland. Edward was a ship carpenter. Living in the adjacent household is Peter and Bridget Bullit. Peter said he was born in Canada and Bridget says she was born in Ireland. Peter “Bully” and Bridget Kinney were married in Racine County on 29 Dec 1849. When the 1860 census was taken, the Edward and Mary “Shonka” family were living in Scott (Brown), Wisconsin. Edward was a farmer. When the 1870 census was taken, the” Edward and Mary Chartier” family were living in Lincoln (Kewaunee), Wisconsin. In this census Edward says he was born in Michigan and Mary says she was born in Prussia. Edward was a farmer. When the 1870 census was taken, “Dennis Sherley” was living with the Peter and Bridget Bulley family in Racine; Joseph Shirkey was living with the Alexander and Eleanor Rousseau family in Scott (Brown), Wisconsin. Alexander was a farmer, born in Wisconsin. . Peter was a carpenter and Dennis was a day laborer.
