ARSENE L. ROY, chief clerk and bookkeeper for the large mercantile house of H. La Bossier, Dorchester, was born in Montreal, Canada, August 28, 1862, the son of Ligori and Mary (Foshier) Roy, both natives of Canada, and the latter of French parentage. The father, a carpenter and millwright by trade, emigrated to Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, in 1867, where he is now working in J. J. Kennedy's mill at Rib Lake. The parents had fourteen children, all whom are living but two, namely: Maximilian, Louise V., Oliver N., Georgianna, Philip, Felix, olive, Arthur, Louis, Peter and Anna. The other two died when small. The children are all at Fond du Lac except Maximilian, who resides at Marinette, Wisconsin.

Arsene L., their eldest child, was educated at the high school of Fond du Lac, and also in the Commercial College of that place. He came to Dorchester in 1886, and has since occupied his present position. He is an expert accountant, and is, therefore, well fitted for his work, and gives excellent satisfaction to his employers and customers. He was married April 11, 1888, to Miss Emma M., daughter of Charles Allard, deceased, late of Dorchester. They had one child, Anna Irene, born September 22, 1890, who died November 24, 1890.
