    Biographical history

    Delphin and Maria (Trusdale) Morin, originally from Quebec, came to Alberta, with Delphin arriving and settling in Morinville, in 1891, and Maria and two children, Firmin and Delvina, arriving the following year.

    Firmin married Lilly Beaudry on July 19, 1901, and their first child, Irma, was born May 8, 1902. On November 26, 1919, Irma married Louis Lefebvre (1896-1934). They initially moved to Innisfree, Alberta, but soon returned to Morinville. They had four children: Rolland, was born November 20, 1920; Andrew, Leonard and Paul.

    Irma, a widow from August 24, 1934, married Wilfred Girard (1903-1963) on May 29, 1943. Rolland Firmin Lefebvre married Florence Pitre in 1941.

    Irma died in 1978.
