Surnames: Quesnel / Demers / LaFreniere
I'm trying to find any connections to my grandfather Alfred Quesnel.

Alfred is believed to have been born Hull, Quebec. Possibly around 1888.

Alfred was also known as a terrific fiddle player and was a prospector. He married Donalda Demers. During the 1930's Alfred and Donalda moved for a brief time to Callander, ON, before moving back to ELK Lake, ON. Both are buried in the Elk Lake Cemetery. Alfred died in 1961.

Their daughter Alma Quesnel (born in Callander) married Paul LaFreniere in Elk Lake, ON. Alma and Paul are my parents.

If anyone has any information at all on Alfred Quesnel I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

Please feel free to respond directly to the board or to my email address:

Thank you very much for your communication.

We have no idea what Alfred (Fred) Quesnel's parents names were. At this point we are not even sure where exactly he was born. We know he was a terrific fiddle player who prospected for gold. We also know he never discussed his family.

Some members of the family spell Quesnel as Quesnell. I believe the latter is actually the correct one.

Recently I was given information from a great uncles baptism certificate stating that Demers was spelt Demerse. Francis Demerse was my great grandfather. One of his children is Marie Joseph Demerse born 1893 in Tupperlake NY.
