Jerry grew up on a farm in Soulange , Quebec close to the Ontario border. He married at the age of 24 to Emma Quesnel and had 10 children. With his last child, his wife died in childbirth.
As a widowe, he found it hard to look after a household and farm chores and ended up marring a widow, Margaret McDonald, on 6 Feb 1900. She was the former Mrs. D. B. McDonald and had two sons Hugh 8 and Archie 14. She died in 24-Mar-1915.
The 1901 cemsus shows his dad Louis, now 83, had moved in with them. Joseph, who was 18 by then had probably left home at that time.
