  • Notes 
    • from Catholic Church Records, Alpena, MI (1864 - 1925) on http://www.alpenalibrary.org :
      Mary Helen Lacomb, parents not known; adopted by Francis Lacomb, was baptized St Bernard, Alpena 1 Nov 1888 and born 15 Mar 1887. Godparents were Oliver Potvin and Elizabeth Potvin. Church Records [I wonder why Norah Lacomb is not listed as an adoptive parent]

      The same day, the following baptism took place:
      Thomas Bernard Potvin, son of Oliver Potvin and Mary Ann Butler, was baptized St Bernard, Alpena 1 Nov 1888
      and born 4 Oct 1888. Godparents were Francis Lacomb and Mrs. Butler. Church Records
