The family moved to Northboro, MA between 1866 and 1870, after a brief stay in New Hampshire. Joseph and his family are listed in the Northborough, MA, 1870 Census. They lived on a farm on Main Street. Their children were: Joseph, Louis, Elisa, Louisa, Minnie, Hercule(a.k.a. Arthur)and Francis. The Desrosiers spelled their name with two “s” up until the 1900 Census when the name is spelled as “Derosier”. It is also possible that this photo is Minnie Desrosier instead of Louise.
