Evelyn In Montreal: Mary Martha Doucet of Bathurst, N.B. (Pt.1)

Stephen Benton says:

My maternal grandmother was Mary Martha Doucet born in 1898 in Bathurst, NB. Per my mother, I know there were approx 5 children in the family.  All females had the first name of Mary, and I believe they were generally addressed by their middle name. There was only one brother, Simon.  I would much like to learn the name of her parents and any other info on the family.  Mary Martha Doucet married in Canada and emigrated to USA in 1925. I am 52 y/o and live in Louisiana, USA.
