  • Notes 
    • - Known as Frank Recore.

      - 1891 Census of Canada. Francois Ricard is residing in Huntingdon Village, Hundington, Quebec, identified as Frank Recor, 40, with wife Marguerite 35, and children Philomene, 10; Alexander, 8; Joseph, 6; Marie, 4; Paul, 2; and Helena, one month. All were born in Quebec. Residing next door are his parents, Maxime Ricard, identified as Michael Recor, 75, and wife Salome Recor, 72. Living with them is their daughter Marguerite, identified as Margaret Sorel, 23, her husband Joseph Sorel, 24, and their children Joseph, 3, and Dominick, 4 mos.

      - 1905 N.Y. State census, Franklin County, Malone, at 30 coffee St., are Frank (45) and Maggie (40) who have been in the U.S. for 9 years; with children Alex (22), Joe (21), Paul (17), Lena (15), Lizzie (13), John (8), Melvina (6) and George (4). John, George and Melvina were born in the U.S., all others were born in Canada.

      - 1910 census: At Malone are Frank Recore, 51; Maggie, 52; Joseph, 26; Helen, 20; Alec, 28; Paul, 22; Lena, 19; Lizzie, 16; Vina, 12, and George, 9.

      - 1915: Frank Recore, 57 and Maggie, 58, reside on River Street, Ward 2, Ogdensburg, with Alexander, 32; John, 18; Vina, 17; and George, 13. Nearby on Commerce St. are Earl Como, 23; Elizabeth, 21; John F., three months; and John Como, 58.

      - 1920: Frank, 60, and Margaret, 61, are in Ogdensburg with son Alex, 36.

      - 1925 N.Y. State Census, St. Lawrence County, Ogdensburg, Frank Recore (65) and his wife Margaret (66) are living at 24 Commerce St with one son, Alex (42). Frank's occupation is listed as "Housework".

      - Earl C. Como said all of Frank's children were born in Huntingdon, except Melvina and George who were born in Malone after Frank moved the family there around 1900. The children were put to work there picking hops, until Frank moved the family to Ogdensburg around 1911. Frank fell under a trolley early in his life and lost both legs right around the knees. He used to sell pencils out of a cup in downtown Ogdensburg. According to Earl Como, he never learned to speak English.

      - George Recore had a marriage certificate for Frank Recore and Maggy Dumas. The ceremony was performed at Constable, N.Y. The third digit in the year was unclear, but the date was either 1848 or 1878, and so must be 1878.

      - Ogd. Advance of May 27, 1934, lists the death of Frank Recore, 76, on May 26, at his home at 23 River St., after an illness of six months. He was born in Quebec and came to Ogdensburg from Malone in 1909 (they are still at Malone in 1910.) In his early life, he suffered the loss of both legs in a railway accident. He was employed as a shoemaker until 1929. He is survived by his widow, Margaret Dumas Recore, whom he married 55 years ago. The body was removed to the home of his son Paul at 421 NY Ave. where the funeral was held from there, and Notre Dame Church.
