      Alex is listed on the 1880 census with his parents as 12 yrs. old.
      He is listed on the 1900 census in Madawaska living with Baptiste Leveque who is widowed & has a daughter & 2 sons; Alexis is listed as being born July 1867, 32 yrs. old, his relationship to head of household is 'Tramp'!!, his occupation is 'Tramp!!'; he is the only person in the state of Maine with this listing; the census taker was Fortunat Pelletier (a relation?)
      On the 1910 census, Alexis is living with his sister Anais & her husband Paul Daigle & their family and his mother, Marie, is living with them also.
      I found an Alexandre Pelletier on the 1920 census in St. Agatha, 52 yrs. old, a boarder, living with Belonie & Demerise Gervais; he is a 'brander' on a farm.
