My Grand-mother's maiden name was Virginia Bauer (married to Raymond George Dallaire). My great Grand-mother's maiden name Myrtle Hynes (married to George Louis Dallaire). My great, great grandfather was named Louis Jean Dallaire...not Louis Henri as I mentioned in my earlier mail. According to his prayer card from his funeral he died on 3/16/1914 in Minneapolis, MN and was "aged 49 yrs, 6 months". No mention of a wife's name. thanks for the help!
I'm sorry to inform you that I had no luck in researching your Allaire/Dallaire genealogy lineage.
There is no reference to a Virginia Bauer (married to Raymond George Dallaire) or Myrtle Hynes (married to George Louis Dallaire) in the marriage index records from the book... "Les Familles Allaire et Dallaire" by Violette Allaire (Québec 1962).
Perhaps they were missed during the research of the descendants of Charles or Jean Allaire of Poitou, France. Are you sure your family came from the Quebec area? Are you sure of the correct spellings of the surnames of Bauer & Hynes? I will try to look under alternative spellings for these surnames.
It may also be possible that your family maybe descendants of some other Allaire/Dallaire's branch which originally landed in the States. The following web site may be of some assistance to you if this is the case...
The Allaires of La Rochelle, France & Westchester County, New York
Good luck with your search.

Thanks for checking. The spellings of the maiden names is correct. They must have been missed when the marriage index was compiled in 1962. They may have been from another lineage of Dallaire's that landed in the States, but my guess is that they are from Quebec as some of the funeral prayer cards, etc refer to Canada and QC.
Any other recommendations on where to search besides that website? It didnt turn anything up. Thanks!
I found some more information about my family...and hope it may unlock some info that you might have based on your research. I really appreciate the help!!!
Louis J Dallaire - Born abt 1865 in Quebec, CA
Died 16 March 1914 in Minnesota, USA
His wife's name was Sarah Dallaire. Her maiden name was Boucher. It was listed in US Census records as "Bushey" or "Buschie". probably a phonetic spelling by the census taker. It was actually Boucher. Her birthplace was listed as New York, with both her parents being born in "French CA".
Does any of this information track backwards based on your research? Thanks again for helping me out!!
