Your Quilietti family heritage

MURRAY, Valentina Dufresne

Valentina Murray is the daughter of Valentina Quilietti Murray and ALEX. Murray.   She married Paul Dufresne, a French Canadian whose family were from a town called Elie Manitoba which is a small town on the outskirts of Winnipeg.   The town of Manitoba had been founded by Paul’s grandfather Elie.   This connection is very exciting and now all their descendants will have this most historical of facts attributed to Elie Dufresne.

  1. Dawn Dufresne Evers says:

    I am the second child of Paul Dufresne and Valentina (Vally) Murray Dufresne–they were married in December of 1942 (she was a War Bride) My sister Patricia Dufresne Carthy was born in 1944–in Edinburh (the picture you have of us above this–between the picture of Gord and I and the one of Gord, Allison and I with Santa (1984). The picture below that is of us at Christmas, probably 1953– left to right–Dawn (me), Martin, Pat and Roland. The picture with the caption “who is this family” is our Dad Paul Dufresne holding Marin, and Pat, Dawn and Roland. That was also 1953. The picture with the straw hat, is me (Dawn).
