Frère Jean Baptiste
Frère Jean Baptiste

We speculate that this is a photo of Frère Jean Baptiste, possibly a cousin of Alma Sicotte. He died at age 64 with 4 other brothers and 40 students in the fire of the college of Sacré-Cœur in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec on January 18, 1938.

We don’t as yet have his birth name. According to his age as given in the newspapers, he was 13 years older than Alma and 20 years older than Domina’s oldest son Edwin. The woman with him may be his sister; there is a family resemblance.

*Edward thinks her name maybe Jeanne.
