Biographical information / Informations biographiques

Il était vétéran de la Première Guerre Mondiale. En 1927, il s'installe avec sa famille à Guéguen où il fait l'élevage de la volaile. Il allait à chaque semaine vendre ses produits à Moncton. Il opéra une niveleuse pendant 2 ans pour le ministère de la voirie. En 1948, la famille déménage à Fitchburgh. Il décéda en 1975.

Philippe's family moved to Kagibougouet, New Brunswick in 1904, now called Cormier Village. They lived with his uncle Simon. The reason they had moved was because they had lost the farm because of debts. In 1909, he was hunting with a friend and accidently shot himself in the chest. When his friend went to get help his shirt caught on fire. He put out the fire. He had a picture of the sacred heart in his pocket. The edges of the picture were burned but not the Sacred Heart. The family got the doctor and he said nothing could be done. They got another doctor and he operated on Philippe on the kitchen table without any anesthesia. His sister Lusy held the kerosene lamp during the operation. His mother had promised that if he lived she would send him to St Anne de Beaupre, he lived and did go with his sisters Mathilde and Polonie. His family moved to the United States on November 9, 1919. His Uncle Simon had left the farm to August and Vital so they decided to move to Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Philippe went to work in the paper mill and then enlisted in the United States Army on June 25, 1918 and was discharged on December 29, 1918. He got married in 1923 and the couple moved back to Cocagne, New Brunswick, on July 9, 1927. They lived on the family farm until 1946 when they returned to the United States again with all their children. He retired early because he had trouble with his lungs. The doctors had found that he had pieces of lead in his lungs.5
