Growing up my grandmother told me stories about the summers she and her brother spent Grandma and Grandpa Kent. They lived on Lake St. Louis and the cousins would descend on the island during the summer.
Here's what I do know:
Marie Anne (Marriane) Brown:
born: Nov 20, 1877 in Quebec, Canada
married: Nov 7, 1874 in Quebec, Canada to Ernest Kent
Ernest Edonard Kent:
born: June 25, 1874 in Quebec, Canada
married: Nov 7, 1898 in Ste-Anne Quebec, Canada
They lived in Quebec, Canada for many years.
I have a 1911 Census of Canada that lists Marie Anne and Dr. E. E. Kent in Jacques-Cartier District #162 with their 7 children.
Both of their families were well off....part of the "upper class". Marie Anne's father was a doctor and Ernest is listed in the 1911 census as a doctor as well. I'd love to know what type of doctor he was.
I know eventually they buy a house on an island on Lake St. Louis but when? My grandmother and her brother would spend summers there with all their cousins. Ernest would play the piano and sing "Silver Threads Among the Gold".

I wrote an earlier post about Marie Anne and Ernest.
Ernest Edonard Kent 1874-? Family Tree
Marie Anne Brown (Kent) 1877 - ? Family Tree
Dr Kent and Marie Anne had 7 children so my grandmother had a ton of cousins. I hope there is someone out there who had a grandparent like mine who spent the summers with Grandma and Grandpa Kent. Someone who has pictures and stories to share. And if anyone knows about Marie Anne's family the Browns or Ernest's family I'd love to hear from you.
I have a few other pictures and a stories I would love to share as well. I have a ton of information on Lake St. Louis.
