    Notes 
    • Estelle married Charles Matyoka in Bristol CT on Oct. 3, 1942.
      Her son Frank told me when she died that her father was not Henry Lozier & sent me a picture of his real grandfather, Emery Lamarre. This was the first I had heard anything about this fact.
      I remember my Aunt Estelle very well, she was the sweetest of them all; we went to their big old house in Bristol, CT & I remember the woods & the old cars (I mean really old cars) in the yard that my Uncle Charlie 'collected'? They also had a big piano in their parlor & I remember bringing my children to visit her when they were about 5 & 7 & them playing the piano.
      When we started having the Lozier Reunions in the early 1990's I got to see my Aunt Estelle every year until she died. It was wonderful. I stopped to see her daughter, Elaine, in York, ME this summer (2007) & she let me scan a bunch of old pictures that were wonderful. Her husband Clint scanned more after I left & sent them to me. It was a terrific visit.
