In 1901 they were living in a 4 room house and farmed 100 acres on the east part of Lot 12 Range 4 in Portland West Township.

      -the farm in la Salette was sold to a Hart family between 1905 and 1920
      -the cost of Michael's burial was $14 - Moise Binette contributed $7 and his son Jim McClements paid the other $7
      -he was buried with the unbaptized children and had a wooden cross which could not be found in the late 1970s.
      -his daughter May (wife of Moise Binette) received word of her father's death only one week later; it was winter and the roads were closed; Moise was working in a shanty at the time.
