Larouche Family File

Larouche FamilyIn the 1940s, French-Canadian families are a minority in Sutton. However, they have many more children than English-Canadian families and often live on more isolated land, far from any hamlet.

The Larouche live on a farm without running water or electricity. Located at the corner of Perkins and Alderbrooke Roads, their farm hardly sustains such a large family.

Each family member's work must then compensate for the lack of money, and girls work as hard as boys. Fortunately, music provides a healthy way of bonding and contributes to make life easier.

The 9 still living members of this at least 90 years old family tell their story and open their photo album.
