The Photographer

Joseph Thibault son of Charles and Virginie (Boucher) Thibault was born April 23, 1871.  He was the brother of Charles Onesime Thibault founder owner editor and publisher of "L'Independent," a weekly news-paper printed in the French language.  Joseph married Adele Berube on October 28, 1889.  They had 2 children Adele and Albert.  Albert died in 1900 at the age of 4.  Adele we can find no record and she wasn't listed in the 1900 census with Albert so it is assumed she died prior to 1900.

Joseph and Adele lived in Fall River until at least 1920 when they were listed on the Census as living at 1510 Highland Street.  They owned the house at this time.  Joseph ran his photography business originally from Pleasant Street, Fall River and later from 154 South Main Street until his death in 1926.  In between he had what appeared to be temporary South Main Street addresses.

Joseph and Charles Onesime were 4th Cousins once removed from Magloire.   We don't have a photo of our Photographer but we do find one of his brother Onesime.  It was probably taken by Joseph.
