Sincere thanks to Mr. Grant Radley-Walters for the detailed identification of all these people. He recalls visiting young John Arthur Legros as a child at the Maison Legros in Pointe-Saint-Pierre. He says this photo is familiar, and he has another of the same people all wearing hats.

This photo was taken in Manchester, New Hampshire, USA while traveling for a family reunion. Arthur & Edward (# 6 and # 9) moved to Manchester as adults and married there.

Mr. Grant Radley-Walters is the great-grandson of George (# 7). He also relates that John Arthur "Jack" Legros lived in the "big green house" and that one of his job responsibilities was to communicate with planes flying from the Gaspé Peninsula to Newfoundland, using a communication tower in his backyard.

George Radley-Walters became the step-grandfather of John Arthur Legros who is seated, (the son of John James), through his marriage to John Legresley's widow: Emily Sophia Demouilpied; Edith Emily Legresley being the daughter of John and E. S. Demouilpied, and the mother of John Arthur.

Reverend Joseph Demouilpied (Emily Sophia's father) was an Anglican minister at the little church on Pointe-Saint-Pierre before George Radley-Walters arrived.
