A Second Cousin

On December 22, 2015 I received a notice from Wiki Tree that a second cousin was reaching out to me about his grandmother, Evelina (Bernard) Mailhot, one of my grand aunts. To finally connect with a member of my family in Canada, it was a gift, and at Christmas!

We've been corresponding regularly with questions and finally, answers. I now have photos of my grand aunt Evelina and her husband Anatole and information on how they met, when they married and what Anatole did for a living.

It seems that Evelina was working as a waitress at the St. Hyacinthe street train station, Anatole was a train conductor who stopped to pick up passengers there, they met and the rest is history.
