Joseph Evariste Marc Poulin also established a farm at a young age, married and was widowed within 2 months. After this difficult start, Evariste married again, and issued forth at least 12 children. Late in life a farming accident left Evariste with a “frozen claw” injury to one hand, making farming impossible as a trade. At that point, his youngest son, Raoul, managed the farm for him for many years.
