Hello and Welcome to my family's homepage. My name is Victor Coveduck and I would like to introduce you to my family. My father and William's father were brothers. " My father, Irwin H. Coveduck was born in Verdun, Quebec. (1913) His father, Joseph Henry Coveyduck of Indian Pond, Newfoundland, left Newfoundland prior to World War 1, moving his family, Wife, Sara-Jane and eldest son William Harold, to Verdun, Quebec. He returned his family, with his newborn son, Irwin Herbert to Indian Pond, Newfoundland, after the start of WW1, to serve with the Army in France. He returned in 1918, to Newfoundland and moved his family back to Verdun, Quebec. Irwin Herbert was then raised in Verdun, leaving home in his late teens. He met up with Violet Alice Smith, of St. Lambert and Verdun and they were married in 1932.
