      Points of interest:

      Bridget Mary Barry was 19 when she married Francis Antoine, but was still considered a minor.

      Francis Antoine is noted as being from St Jean Baptiste d'Ottawa parish. In that he was noted as a clerk in the 1881 Census, he may have gone to Ottawa to learn his trade as a tailor. By 1901, he and his family are living back in Montreal.

      The family name is noted as "de Bussiere".

  • Notes 
    • Godparents - James Patrick Grace (Family friend) - Ann Farrell Grace (Family friend).

      An accomplished athlete. He was a member of the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association and won numerous track events for them between 1913 and 1916.

      Quote from Loyola College yearbook - 1917 - "An agreable youth with an original sense of humor. Loves an argument for its own sake and has the gift of crushing sarcasm. Everybody worries him because everybody likes him. Inspires hope for the welfare of the future "four hundred". Loyola is now Concordia University.

      The following was written while at Loyola:

      Essays by Compulsion

      I shall try to write an essay on essays. Surely, a definite definition of the thing to be defined will speedily supply the sufficient sentences to fill the specified space.

      Consulting my trusty lexicon, I find that an essay is a literary composition on any subject. This makes my task look easier. However, further search discloses the fact that a literary composition is a written composition which is valued for form.

      "Valued for form!" (It sounds like a racing forecast.) I am afraid some of my essays were really essays after all. Their form is rich and rare; It would lead any reader to conclude that I used some cipher. In fact, most of my literary compositions might be called literary lapses, with the lapses in control of the situation.

      In strict confidence, I hold the shrewd view that essays these days are subtly intended by some "dark forces" of monopoly to promote the profitable sale of paper. For whar=t other purpose - honestly, now - can they possibly serve? Imagine, I say, imagine any one being interested in my thoughts on the "Beauties of Nature," on "The Advantages of a Classical Education," or even on such a subject as "My Visit to Turin."

      The significance of a summer sunset was ever solely its use as a sign that the meal-hour was near. The advantages of an education could easily be found out otherwise by the essay-setting teacher, and, as to your visit to Turin, why, you had to go willy-nilly, and all you saw were musty libraries, dark picture galleries and a lot of people who could not speak English.

      Indeed, essay-writing is a grand and glorious thing! However, ther are compensations. remember, my son, the time you wrote a good one, and "came First," and Father slipped you a quarter, and you went to Uncle's and collected another, and finally ended up your tour by visiting Grandmother, that she too might have the opportunity to be charitable.

      Whee! I must have written an essay by now. I have at least fulfilled part of the definition, by writing something on anything. As to form, - well, after all, that is a matter of taste.

      Francis Bussiere

      Worked for Price Brothers and Company, Quebec City from 1923 to 1960. His final post held - Secretary.
