    Notes 
    • In 1893, Jules was working as a joiner in Casselman, Ontario. In 1900, he was a millright at the W.S. Edwards mills in Rockland.
      About 1898, Jules Joanis wrote the following note to his children ( translated by Pauline Cullen in 1997):

      "I am writing this "memoire" so that, in the event of our death, your mother and I, we leave this notebook so that you will know our ages as well as your own.
      My dear children, you have only to consult this notebook as I, Jules Joanis and Délina Quévillon, were married at L'Ange Gardien, where we were both born. We were married on Monday, November 17th in 1884 at the age of 22 and 17, respectively.
      I purchased our property in the Township of Clarence, Russell County on September 20, 1895 at $25.00 per with $6 interest on $300.00. On September 18, 1897, I made the third payment and also one payment in advance".
