Was Mrs. Baxter née Delaudenière or Delanaudière? Her biography on ET is kinda confusing. It says she was born Delaudenière, but at the bottom of the page it says that her name is associated with the Lanaudière county. Any help appreciated.

Charles, in the index to his book: Titanic The Canadian Story, your fellow Canadian, Alan Hustak, lists Baxter, Hélène de Lanaudière Chaput.

Just to confuse matters Michael Findlay had Helene DeLaudeniere Chaput; which has been Revised as: Helene De Lanaudiere-Chaput.

Hope this helps,
Lester

Just to throw this into the mix....

Mrs. Baxter's name, as inscribed on the family marker at the cemetery in Montreal, is

H. De Lanaudière-Chaput Baxter

According to the Calif. Death Certificate of Suzette Baxter Richardson (thanks to Phil Gowan), her mother's maiden name was Helene Delanaudiere.

Thank you.

BTW, the Lanaudière county in Quebec is charming. I wish everyone to visit it one day. Their maple syrup is delicious...
