      Benjamin and Emma Payer

      (for larger image, click on photograph)
      _______________

      US Census 1930 shows her as 67, which gives the c. 1863 birth year.

      Mary Louise Bonsecours remembers her grandmother, Emma Payer, staying with the children after Josephine Payer Bonsecours died. This probably would have been in the 1930's? Mary Louise Bonsecours Dagwell remembers Joe Payer being Josephine Payer's brother and living in Duluth, Minnesota.

      The 1930 US census shows Emma Payer living with her son, Joseph Payer in Duluth, Minnesota. Emma is shown as widowed and 67 years old. Born Canada-French and both parents born Canada-French.

      Emma Coumartin Immigrated to the United States in 1880.

      Comartin shown as surname in some records.

      It appears that she was still alive when Benjamin Payer died May 2, 1928. See the Cheboygan Observer of May 3, 1928. Comartin was used in the article, probably an obituary.
