Thanks. I had that information from Claire before she passed away.  I am looking for more information about her parents and grandparents.  I know they owned a  bakery and that they perished from the Spanish Flu in 1918 along with some of their other children.  Thanks for taking the time to answer!

The 1918 Spanish flu
The Spanish flu is the most devastating pandemic that hit the world in the 20th century. It has killed 100 million people, more than the two world wars.

The flu is very contagious and spreads at breakneck speed.

The flu arrived in America on the medical ship Araguaya, which left England on June 26, 1918, and on which many of the wounded were infected with the virus.

The disease enters the United States before spreading in Canada. Towards the beginning of October, the Spanish flu invades the city of Montreal, which decides to close all the public meeting places.

In the province of Quebec, from October 8, 1918, theaters, schools, dance halls and other public places are closed until further notice. Only churches remain open ...

The Spanish flu suddenly disappears in the late spring of 1919.

The Spanish flu has killed 50,000 people in Canada, one million in the United States and 100 million worldwide.
