We live here now. Was property of Gerard Raymond Dairy Farms . The 2 large buildings, barn near road and smaller one in the back, were demolished. The house and garage and 2 door shed still exist. The small one story house were neighbors. This farm is located at 257 U.S. Rt.1 Frenchville, Maine

I grew up in there. The barn burned to the ground in 1976. My parents Claude & Marion Raymond lived there until about 2005 or 2006. The garage next to the house was actually a milk room that was attached to the barn. When the milk cows were gone the no longer needed the milk room so my DR had it moved next to our house and he fixed it up to be his garage.

The farmhouse to the right of the barn was the homestead of my grandparents, Felix and Alice Collin. My father, Joseph F. Collin sold the farm, house and barn to Gerard Raymond in 1942. My Dad continued to work for Mr, Raymond until his retirement .in the mid 60's. I used to go to the barn often when it was a dairy barn and watch the automated milking process. I have a very strong odorous memory of the barn !!

Wow.... Felix and Alice Collin being my mothers grandparents....sooo happy to see this photo that I will share with my mother.... Thanks Alice for sharing...

I was born in this house 82 years ago ,my mother name Albertine Colin maried to a Canadian Geioge Martin,that was my grandmother house,I remember de big barn ,and the large field in back where uncle Jos would fetch the cows,ther was an electric fence and uncle would take hole of the fence and would ask us to take his hands ouch!,I now live in Edmundston,and every time I go see my cousins in Frenchville I will say I was born here.

I was born and raised in the farmhouse which was on the farm owned by Uncle Gerard Raymond.
