I am hoping to find someone one out there that remembers Rose May Russell. Her parents were Ernest Edward Russell and Charlotta "Lottie" Swain (both of Bath, ME). Rose May Russell Married Thomas Nadeau of Old Town at the age of 14. Thomas was 33. Rose was born July 23, 1904 and died January 3, 1979 (Rose Rich was her name - she remarried Harold Rich when Thomas passed. Thomas was born 02/12/1886 in Old Town, Maine to Freeman Nadeau and Elizabeth "Lizzle" Thibodeau. He died in 1956.
No one on either the Nadeau or Russell side have any photos of Rose or Thomas. I would love to see what they looked like. They were my great grand parents.
Rose and Thomas Nadeau had 5 children
Ralph Vincent Nadeau 1920-1992
FLora Elizabeth Nadeau 1921-1921
Joseph Arthur Nadeau 1922-1993
Shirley M Nadeau 1927-2003
Thomas Nadeau Jr. 1929-2005 (this was my grandfather).
I truly hope someone out there has some information on Rose and Thomas. Their story seems very interesting. I can't figure out why a 33 year old man would want to marry a 14 year old girl. According to the years, she was not pregnant at the time.
Any information would be greatly appreciated! Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have any information, or contact me here.
