Notes: Mgr Donat Robichaud Genealogical and Historical Research Collection (FR): [Frigault, Alexandre,1925, A fishing vessel went down with all aboard. Caraquet families are in mourning.  The Caraquet fishermen who did return from fishing last Saturday recounted the tragic accident that had taken place with their four comrades on Thursday. The four were the crew of the T.H.B.  The small fishing fleet had stopped at the banks when a very violent wind suddenly rose up.The other boats had already folded their sails and dropped their anchors. Once the gale had passed the fishers saw that the T.H.B. – with all hands aboard – had disagreed.The crew consisted of Captain Prosper Leger who leaves his wife and several grandchildren. The second was Alexandre Frigault, who leaves his wife and five children. Pascal Leger (unmarried) was the son of the captain. Pierre Blanchard was married and father of one child. The boat belonged to T.H. LeBouthillier.  This tragedy plunged the whole parish of Bas-Caraquet into shock.]
