According to this source, brothers Paul & Michel Desmarais died at the hands of the same physician, Yvon Phlem. Paul suffered dropsy. “The years following the Bilodeau affair were quiet. It seems that Phlem’s reputation had remained intact in the eyes of his fellow-citizens. As in the past, the healer continued receiving sick persons in his home. No complaint was brought against him, even if there might have been some occasions to do so. Indeed, according to the parish records of Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade, three of his patients died in his home: Nicolas Marion in 1738; Paul Desmarais, from Verchères, who was suffering from dropsy, in 1739; and Gabriel Desmaisons, a Saint-Maurice ironworks employee who also had dropsy, in 1742.” And: “ The sick sometimes came from a considerable distance to be treated by him. But Phlem’s treatment was not always efficacious, as is shown by the case of Michel Desmarais, a habitant from Saint-Sulpice who died in 1729 at Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade “in the home of the Sieur Yves Phlem, surgeon.”
