      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".

      Francois was a merchant tailor with his cousin and partner, Michael Walsh. The 1901 Census has Francois and family living at 1946 Notre Dame in Montreal. Michael Walsh lived at 1928 Notre Dame. The present day location would have been at the corner of Dupre and Notre Dame West, at the base of University.

      Based on the 1905 Bell Canada directory, Francois lived at 114 St-Famille and his phone number was "East 2104". Very few had phones at the time. Walsh & Bussiere was noted as being located at 1867 Notre-Dame and the phone number was "Main 2593". Michael Walsh's number was "Main 3548".

      Lovell's Classified Business Directory for Montreal notes the following for Walsh & Bussiere:
      1891-1892 - 2080 Notre Dame (p.215)
      1892-1893 - 2080 Notre Dame (p.205)
      1908-1909 - 301 Notre Dame West (p.261)
      1912-1913 - 301 Notre Dame West (p.542)

      301 Notre Dame West may have been located at the northeast corner of Notre Dame and St-Pierre in what is now Old Montreal based on current street addresses.

      Francois lived at 90 Arlington Avenue, Westmount, Quebec in 1941.

      He was a 4th Degree Knights of Columbus.
