Joseph-Octave Tanguay (1845-1934), born in St-Henri de Lévis, arrived in Coaticook with his wife, Philomène Hémond, and children in 1898. Their children were: Délima (1877-1960), Calixte (1881-1957), Virginie (b. 1883), Cyprien (1886-1986), and Joséphine (b. 1890). J.-O. Tanguay farmed until his retirement in 1920.
Calixte Tanguay (1881-1957) married Rose Anna Giroux (1879-1948) in Coaticook on 25 October 1915. Together they had three children: Wilfrid, Jeanne (1917-1989), and Yvonne (b. 1920).

Cyprien Tanguay (1886-1986) married Delvina Couture (1897-1985) on 12 September 1916 in St. Herménégilde. Together they had at least two childred: Jeannette (1916-1989), Lucien-Paul (b. 1923). In 1927, Cyprien opened a grocery store on Cutting Street in Coaticook. The store, though not as large as that of D.S. Bachand on Main Street, was particularly popular with the children who attended school on Pleasant Street (presently Gérin-Lajoie), who came in to buy penny candy.

Jeannette Tanguay (1916-1989) was particularly passionate about music.
