Holyoke MA, Joseph, Francois, and Joseph Armand Gamache

Holyoke MA, Joseph, Francois, and Joseph Armand Gamache

Classification: Query
I am looking for the origins of a Gamache Family who ended up in Holyoke, MA. I have Joseph (m.n. possibly Armand) Gamache, married to Mathilde Robert (no dates). They had a son, Francois (m.n. possibly Xavier) Gamache born in Canada or Vermont, in 1862, and his wife Octavie Guenette born in Quebec, Canada in 1872. They had a son, Joseph Armand Gamache, who went by his middle name Armand, born 1905. He was married to Theresa Counter.

Any information on connections would be great!
