He went through Marquette, Ohio and Omaha, Nebraska where he was caught in a war between Americans and Indians. Flying the war, he got lost for months. Having sent a lettre to his brother in LA, (a few days by train from Omaha to LA) he was considered dead after 4 or 5 months. A funeral service was held in Saint.Alban (by Father Trudel) without the corpse. But Denis Perrault was not dead. Finally, on a quite night he heard the whistle of a train and was able to cross the track. He worked a few weeks in Nebraska, earned anough to take the train and reached Los Angeles. He found his brother faming in LA. probably in El Rancho La Providencia (today Burbank) from where he sent this photo to his family in Quebec. In spent his life farming as market gardener near LA and became quite wealthy. He was never married. In 1878 he was first mentionned. In 1892 he was on a voters list in Los Angeles. In 1887, a notice in the Daily Alta California ask for remailing his mail to San Franscisco. In 1893 he bought 12 acres of land in La Providencia (Burbank) from H. L. McNeil. At the 1900 census, he is living in San Diego and his profession is "capitalist". (businessman). In 1912 he visited his family in Quebec, returned to California where he probably died. Any informations about his last years in California would be appreciated.

Denis Carrier Hello, I just wrote an article (in french) about James Kelly and I think this could be of interest to you. James Kelly was born in 1810 in Dungiven parish, Derry County in the north of Ireland. He arrived in Quebec City in 1830. The town of Ville-Marie (Temiscamingue County, Province of Quebec) was first named Baie Kelly (Kelly's Bay) because James Kelly was the first to live there. So if you want a copy of this biography in french I would be glad to send it to you if you give me your e-mail adress. My e-mail adress is: Best regards Denis Carrier

Denis Carrier Oops.... I made a mistake: Joseph (Bellarmin) Perreault was the grand-father of Rosa Kahler but Rosa Kahler was still alive in 1947. She introduced herself as the grand-dauther of Joseph (Bellarmin) Perreault. But I don't know the name of her grand-mother with whom Joseph (Bellarmin) Perreault had a child back in 1886. Sorry about the mistake. Denis Carrier
