Louis LaLonde and Elvira Uderos


Louis H. Lalonde was born, September 11, 1887, on his father’s ranch in Nogal, Lincoln County, NM.


He married Elvira Uderos in Carrizozo on September 25, 1903.


Elvira was born on October 13, 1893. Her parents were Guillermo Uderos and Refugia Ortiz. Refugia was the mother of Louis’ sister, Carrie’s husband, Julian Leal.


The LaLondes came to California with brother-in-law Joe Sanchez and his family. Louis worked as a custodian at an Elementary School in a community called Titlleyville in East Pasadena.


Louis and Elvira’s marriage license used the last name Lalone, which the family commonly used in New Mexico. His delayed birth certificate dated 1943 uses the name LaLonde. How or why they went back to the French spelling would be interesting to find out.


Louis died March 11, 1946, Elvira died in the early 1970s (I think), in Pasadena.
