Note :  email from Gérard P. Blanchard :
"A little background on the photo of Flora and Clara Pilon. This photo has been kicking around in my Blanchard Family for about 100 years, as it was passed down to my dad, and was given to him by his mother Celina Quesnelle daughter of Jean Baptiste Quesnel and Philomena Blosse dit Bellehumeur.  The only connection that I can ascertain is that of Celina and her step-sister Anastasie (J.B.Quesnel and second wife Agnes Campeau).  Anastasie   Quesnel married Octave Pilon, son of Oliver Pilon and Catherine Asselon, Oct. 12, 1902, Ste-Anne, Penetanguishene.  As I mentioned there is only very old handwriting (70 years that I am aware of ) on the back of the photo.  I am sorry to say there is no imprint on the photo to indicate where the photo was taken."
