Art's definition of a Denomme mystery is when he has information on an individual, or branch of our family, but does not know where they fit into the tree. The book, unfortunately, still has quite a few pages of "mysteries"
In the Ottawa river, between Ottawa and Hull is an island named Lumpy Denommee's Island. In June 2017 I was contacted by two individuals from the Ottawa area wondering if I had any clues to who "Lumpy" was. I was unable to help them. Denomme(e)'s were in the Hull area as early as the 1820's and in Ottawa in the early 1900's. If anyone has any information that can shed light on "Lumpy", please contact me.
SOLVED ...... No story moved me more than this one during the years that I was writing the book. I would put a mystery on this web page and for the most part, many of them were solved rather quickly. Denise's mystery was on this page for years. When Marie-Louise's son contacted me from Hamilton and told me that the information sounded an awful lot like his mother, we spent time to confirm the information. I then had the pleasure of contacting Denise to let her know that the mystery had been solved. It resulted in the uniting of two families that did not know the other existed. The families from the two marriages met in 2004 in Hamilton.
Marie-Louise moved to Hamilton, Ontario in 1941-42 and married/partnered with Moïse Danis, who changed his name to Moise Davis. Marie-Louise and Moise had two children. A mystery from Denise Darlow ... My family has been searching for my grandmother, Marie-Louise Denommé, ever since she disappeared from Blue Sea Lake, Quebec in 1941. She left with a man by the name of Moïse Danis. She was born on December 11, 1902, the daughter of Antoine Denommé and Marguerite Denommé.
