Born: 1875

Died: 1957

Married: Arthur Daigneau


Elizabeth Dupuis Daigneau

The late Addie Shields, Clinton County Historian, was a niece of the Daigneaus; she stayed with them from January through March 1937 while student teaching in Saranac Lake. Her Aunt Elizabeth Dupuis, who was "proud and tall and French," was born in West Chazy. She met Arthur Daigneau at the Loon Lake House while working as a seamstress for Mary Chase there.

Addie disagreed with the characterization of the Daigneau Cottage Annex as a cure cottage, feeling that it cast her aunt and uncle in the role of tradespersons, and remembered how beautiful the house was when her aunt was living there. She described the house as "handy as a pocket in a shirt."

Notes from a telephone conversation with Mary Hotaling, after a visit to the Cure Cottage Museum had been televised in Plattsburgh.

Elizabeth and Arthur Daigneau are buried in the cemetery (presumably St. Paul's) on the Fletcher Farm Road in Bloomingdale.
