    • Melvina McGough Lozier died on Aug. 19, 1916 in Ft. Kent, ME but the state cannot find a death certificate for her. Unfortunately, her name has been misspelled so many times that I don't know what name it may be filed under (all forms of Lozier are filed at the Archives as Lausier). I also checked the books at the Fort Kent town hall when I was there & she is not listed there either. They have suggested that she may have died in Canada; I have searched the New Brunswick death records for this date to no avail.
      I got a copy of the mass card for 'Dame Malvina McGauff from Verna Lozier in Fort Kent, ME summer 2007, it says:
      In the memory of Dame Malvina McGauff
      wife of Robert Lauzier, deceased at Fort Kent Me August 19, 1916, at the age of 66 years
      Farewell parents who love me so. Dien name, but I leave you in heaven, I will not forget you and I pray God will pour out his abundant blessings.
      Console yourself with the Seignueur, I feel my arms the sensitive heart on my grave. I listen to your prayers and the door of God ...
      Sweet Heart of Jesus, be my love (300 jrs incl.)
      Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation: (300 incl. jrs.)

    Buried 21 Aug 1916  St. Louis Cemetery, Fort Kent, ME Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Found Melvina's grave in St. Louis' cemetery in Ft. Kent sec. BB in Aug 2007; it is next to Robert Sr. & Jr's grave & Aggie Boutot Lozier is between them & Melvina's; headstone says 'Delvina McGoff spouse of Robert Lausier 19 Aug 1916' ; even in death she can't have her name correct.
      The church office at St. Louis' looked up her burial record & found that Robert Lausier bought lot #510 in 1916; that Malvina McGoff died Aug. 19, 1916 & was buried on the 21st; she died of 'Vieillesse' which is old age in French (she was ony 67!) There is a family story that she was found dead, naked, in the woods; I have researched every paper that covered Fort Kent in 1916 for the date of her death & 3-4 weeks after for any stories about finding a woman in the woods, no luck.
      Her headstone is also facing the opposite direction from Robert Sr & Jr & Aggie's, she was the 1st of the 4 to die; not sure if this has any meaning; I've looked into exhuming her grave for any information & was told there isn't enough left in her coffin to amount to any forensic investigation.

    Notes 
    • Her name has been officially filed at least 10 diff. ways from her children's birth records, baptismal records, their marriage records, their death records, etc.
      I was told in L'Isle-Verte by Roger Lafrance, a genealogist, that McGough is pronounced 'McGaw' which is probably responsible for most of the misspellings.
