I personally have no recollection of my grandfather, Joseph dit La Becasse of America. I was told that he and his wife Delima moved from Canada to Lewiston,  Maine with their older children in the mid 1920's. I was also told he was a horse trainer in Canada and continued training horses in Lewiston. However, during that time period, Canadians moved to Lewiston to work in the shoe shops and mills,  so I think it's safe to say his main job was working in one of the industries and trained horses as an extra source of income. If I get more information,  I'll pass it on. My brother, Maurice, is 83 years old so he remembers more than I do.

God's blessings to you. Louise.......your cousin Colette.
