    • Henry BREHAUT, age 28, Plasterer, son of Daniel and Isabella, married Sabina A. BELL, age 24, born Nova Scotia, daughter of George and Margaret.

      [Up until recently it was not known exactly when and where Henry married Sophia BELL; it may possibly have been in Boston, Massachusetts. They reportedly had a son. Sophia's name was originally thought to be "Viney" BELL. The information above, regarding the marriage, is from an unsourced notation owned by a family member; it may or may not be valid, but it is a base from which to work. There was a birth registered, "male BREHAUT", in 1891 which needs investigation since it was the same year in which Sophia/Sabina died.] (Anne Brooks) [1]
