In the late 1880s, they moved to St. Boniface, Manitoba where they stayed for three or four years. They had returned to Montréal by 1892 when Jeanne Berthe was born April 30. They remained in Montréal until the early 1900's when the entire family moved to Ottawa where most of them remained and spent the rest of their lives.
