      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".
