  • Notes 
    • Albina Duff's baptismal record from St. Anne de Stukely gives her baptismal name as Albina Regina Henriette Duff, recording her father as Stanislas Duff (which he signed as "O. Stanislas Duff", and mother Delima Galbert. She was baptised the day after she was born; godparents were Samuel Cyr and his wife, Adele Bradeur. The parish of Sainte-Anne-de-Stukely became Sainte-Anne-de-la-Rochelle in 1951.

      Uncle Tut recorded Albina Duff's birthplace as Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada; however, Sherbrooke is 25 miles (as the crow flies) from St. Anne de Stukely. It seems unlikely that a day-old infant was taken more than 25 miles for baptism in 1884, and needs further research.
