RENAUD, Frederick Carleton

Fredrick Carleton RENAUD, 1909, with
his mother Georgianna Decelles Renaud.

This photo was taken at the photographic studio of "Chandler, St Albans, VT".  The back is inscribed "Fredrick Carleton Renaud, age 4 months, Nov 16, 1909."

The child was therefore born in or near Mid-July 1909.

1910 Census records for St. Albans, Vermont (enumerated in April 1910) show a family living at number 10 High Street, consisting of Fredrick G. Renaud (age 31), Georgianna D. (age 32), son Carleton F. (age 9 months). Also in the household are 38-yr-old sister-in-law Melinda Decelles and 20-yr-old brother Eliot Renaud.

Father Fredrick G. is listed as a Barber and runs his own shop, while his brother Eliot, also a barber, helps out in the shop. Melinda is given as a machine operator in a clothing factory.

The full name of the baby's father was Fredrick Guiesbert Renaud.

By the time Carleton was 10, the family had relocated to Southbridge Massachusetts.

In the 1930 Census for that town, the father is still employed as a barber, while 20-yr-old  F. Carleton is a prescription clerk in a drug store. In 1937, he married Lillia B. (Pinsonneault) also of Southbridge and she outlived him by 17 years.

In the 1950s Carleton is found in the City Directory for North Adams, Massachusets, employed as a Chef at St Anthony Hall at Williams College. Eventually the couple moved back to Southbridge. It is unknown whether or not Carleton and Lillia had children.
