Laurent and Eleanor Garneau lived in Strathcona, Alberta. They had 11 children between 1870 and 1890 – Victoria, Louis, Edward (Ned), Archange, Lawrence (Larry), Alexander, Charlotte, Agatha, John (Jean Michel), Millicent, and Henri.
In 1874 they settled on River Lot 7 on the south side of the North Saskatchewan river opposite Fort Edmonton. The land extended from the river-bank in the north to what is now University Avenue in the south and from 112 Street in the west to about 109 Street in the east. The Garneaus built a log cabin at 11103 Saskatchewan Drive, around what is now the Humanities Building at the University of Alberta. The area around the university is known as Garneau, named for Laurent Garneau.
By 1914 the Garneaus had 18 grandchildren:
Children of Louis Garneau - Louis, Millie, Rose,
Children of Ned Garneau - Laurence, Edward, Mary Mabel,
Children of Archange Garneau Brady – Anne, James P., Eleanor, Jeanne, J. Redmond
Children of Alexander Garneau – Harold, Oscar, Charlotte
Children of John Garneau - Robert Elphage (Alf), Leo, Mildred (Millie)
Child of Millicent Garneau Savard – Yvonne.
