  • Notes 
    • I looked at the Massachusetts Archives 2/5/09 for Regina's birth record, and found nothing, not under Regina Duff (or any variation of the name), or as Georgiana. The 1880 census of Lowell, Massachusetts records her name as Hortense. I need to go back and look for a birth record with that name. Perhaps she assumed her mother's name after her mother died.

      Regina's marriage to Elie Desrochers is recorded at the Massachusetts Archives, 1903, volume 537, page 434.

      From Herve Duff: I found the marriage of Régina Duff in the marriage repertory of the St-Jean-Baptiste Church of Lowell, MA (February 18, 1903). Her parents are listed as being Stanislas Duff and Régina Chatel. In the Lowell, MA marriage intention index, her age is given : 24, which would situate her birth year in 1879 (that corresponds exactly with the 1891 Census). Régina Duff married Éli Desrochers. She lived in Manchester, New Hampshire, near the mills.
