The one name on this which is not on the site is Anna Mishe. She was not a blood relation, but had been taken in by the family way back and lived with them for years. She appears in Gustave Pitard Sr.'s household on the 1880 census as a servant, "Anita Mish," next to her son [presumably her son] Fernand.
