Name of creator
The Chevigny family is one of the pioneer families of St. Albert. Octave Chevigny was born 4 May 1938 to Octave Chevigny Sr. and Dellamen Plamondon. He married Claire Plamondon.
Octave Chevigny Sr. married Julie Froment and had Prosper, Godfrey, Doree, Marie-Ange, and Cheri Chevigny. After Julie Froment's death, Octave Chevigny Sr. married Dellamen Plamondon, the widow of his brother Albert Chevigny, and had two sons Octave and George Chevigny.
There are two separate donations related to this fonds. The first set of photographs were found in Octave Chevigny Jr.'s shed after his death on 24 Mar. 2014. His daughter, Rachelle Bourassa, gave them to Emilie Chevigny who in turn donated them to the Musée Héritage Museum. Octave is Emilie's brother-in-law.
The next set of photographs were donated directly by Rachelle Bourassa in 2015.
All photographs are thought to have been originally owned by Octave's mother, Dellamen Plamondon.
