We know Alex was part of the Cornwall Citizen band probably before he got married. The band often played in Central Park and it may have been where Blanche first met Alex
On their marrage document Alex is listed as a bookkeeper. We know he could add four figure numbers with ease and worked for a property owner. Their wedding witness were both from New York state and as it turns out Julia Lozette was born in Moose Creek and probably a school mate.
The 1921 census shows the family living at Pitt and First Street with 5 kids. Tweenty years later with most of the kids gone, we find the Legroulx family living on 3rd Street. It is also interesting to note that Margurite, their 2nd child, is now married and with husband Ross, is staying with them during the war years.
