My great great grandfather was a carpenter. A great carpenter from what I hear. Louis Deschamps was born 21 Jul 1842 in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, but lived in Nashua, NH for a large portion of his life. A carpenter and builder by trade, Louis built the house he lived in and the house his son and his family lived in. The addresses for the houses are 65 Kinsley and 43 Kinsley Street Nashua, NH. Built at the turn of the 20th Century, they are both still standing. I know he built other houses in the area as well, but I don’t have any records of where they were located. Though the houses may not be in the best condition now, I have a lot of pride for what my grandfather was able to accomplish. The craftsmanship is evident even if the facades are slowing deteriorating. And they may no longer belong to the family, they are a part of our family story.
