Ken and Rose Marie's Most Wanted


On Veterans Day 2007, I added a new Media category - Military Service Ribbons, to display the military awards our relatives have received while serving their country. Not all of the ribbon racks are accurate because I do not have a copy of the individuals DD214 or military discharge paper.

If you have a copy of their DD214 or have a shadow box or picture of their awards, I would appreciate receiving any and all corrections. If you are willing to share to photo to be added to the site, I would also appreciate getting a digital copy. Thanks.

The following individuals and photographs have proven particularly difficult to track down. If you have any information on any of them (or even just suggestions about where to look), please contact me. (Note: You must remove the blanks in the email address and change the at and dot to the appropriate email symbol.) Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Elusive People

  • Onias G. Martin (1919 – 1945):

    If you have information on how Onias Martin of Madawaska, Maine is related to my Martin family lines, I would appreciate hearing from you.

    According to the 2007 St John Valley Edition of Paper Talks on page 37, Onias was inducted in the U.S. Army in 1942 and attached to the 85th Tank Battalion, 5th Armored Division in Europe. 2LT Martin lost his life on the side of a farm road not far from the French village of Bonnetable. The people of Bonnetable considered Onias their liberator and have erected an impressive stone monument commemorating Lt Martin's efforts.

    Based on information in the Martin Family Reunion book, I was able to tie Onias G. Martin into the family tree. He was my father's second cousin, since both Onias and my father, Claude Roy, shared a common great-grandfather, Isaie Martin.

  • Docite Nadeau (1922 – 1943)

    If you have information on how Docite Nadeau is related to my Nadeau family lines, I would appreciate hearing from you.

    Docite Nadeau, also known as Dyke was a ball turret gunner in 511th BS and was killed in action when the Lucky Ball was ditched in North Sea on Dec 22, 1943. See Operational Narrative in post #4 and Crew List in Post #2.

    Thanks to Peter Charron, I was able to tie Docite Nadeau into the family tree. Peter did the research for an article that his mother, Palmyra Nadeau, Docite's sister published in the St John Valley Times for the 2001 Memorial Day edition on Dyke's ultimate sacrifice in World War II.

William Roy with Sisters Who are the other people with William Roy
What I know: This picture was scanned from a tintype found in Mom's photo box after her death. Two cousins have both identified the man sitting as William Roy. There is not a concensus on the other people in the picture. My guess is that the back row is Joseph L. Morneault, Maxime Roy, Honore Roy and the front row is William Roy and Catherine Roy, wife of Joseph L. Morneault. Is the lady the same person as in the following photograph? or as one of the cousins has expressed, is she Rose Roy? What do you think?
Catherine Roy Catherine Roy with her mother Malvina Martin This picture is most likely Catherine Roy (standing) with her mother Malvina (Martin) Roy (sitting) based on the tintypes being found with photos that were in the Morneault family. Is Catherine the same lady as the person sitting in the photo above?
Morneault Brothers Who are the Morneault brothers?
What I know: This photo was scanned from a tintype found in the box of Morneault Family pictures after Mom passed away. One of the brothers is certainly Joseph L. Morneault. My guess is that he is the one sitting in the left. Can you help identify the other three brothers? Two people have suggested that the person standing on the left is Andre Morneault. The other brothers are potentially Raphael "Manine" and Denis Morneault. Is the person sitting on the left in this photo, the same as the person on the left standing in the first photo above? Are there any other opinions out there?
Six Roy Sisters Grandpa Maxime Roy's six sisters?
What I know: This photo was scanned from a tintype found in the box of Roy Family photos after Mom passed away. They are most likely my Grandfather Maxime's sisters. Grandpa had the following sisters -- Marie Anne, Catherine, Alice, Modeste, Anna, Rose, and Martha. Can you help identify them?
