Thanks for posting an interesting article. Tom Courchesne was my uncle.

The article was great. My Grandfather used to tell me stories about the history of the area. I grew up in Courchesne Road. My Grandfather was one the cement company employees that took advantage of buying land and building when Mr. Courchesne offered it. I was in Courchesne School for Pre-School, Kindergarten, and First Grade then we had to tranfer to EB Jones. By the way Courchesne Rd still is a residential area that is alive and well. I hope the integrity for the entire area is preserved to include the school. There is much history there.

Trish, He did have an interesting life. El Paso was a very rustic area then and he was a good man but not a saint.
