Little Ella Beaulieu was Emma's daughter. After her first husband's death Anastasie Cyr came to live in Drummond with her daughter Annie Cyr and married old Jean Beaulieu (widow of Marie-Anne Lizotte), at Drummond in 1889. Annie Cyr Lagacé was a midwife and helped deliver more than 300 babies. Photo taken around 1910. Lent by Jean-Guy Plourde.
