Subject: Re: Death date/location for Palma Gaumond

Surnames:

I think I tracked her down in 1940 and 1930.

In 1940 she's in West Warwick. She's listed as "sister" but actually it looks like these are pages where the census taker was going back to houses they'd missed. She's listed as in household 173. If you go back a couple pages you find the rest of household 173 (at 38 Payne). It's her widowed sister Marie (Gaumond) Gosselien and her children.

Name: Palma Gaumond
Age: 67
Estimated birth year: abt 1873
Gender: Female
Race: White
Birthplace: Canada French
Marital Status: Widowed
Relation to Head of House: Sister
Home in 1940: West Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island
Map of Home in 1940: View Map

Inferred Residence in 1935: West Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island
Residence in 1935: Same House
Citizenship: Naturalized
Sheet Number: 61A
Number of Household in Order of Visitation: 173


1930 she's in Lawrence, Mass. where she was in 1920. She's indexed as "Marie Garant". She's lodger in the house of Henry Gosselien and his wife and some other Gosseliens. Her mom was a Gosselien (and her sister Marie married one) so I assume Henry fits in somewhere.
Here's a tree that sorts it out pretty fully. Still can't find her after 1940, though.
