    • Cape Breton Post obituary, October 10, 1901: "Henry Boutilier, one of the oldest and best known residents of Coxheath, died suddenly yesterday morning. He arose at his usual time apparently hale and hearty, but was up but a few hours when he dropped dead. Paralysis is supposed to have been the cause of death. Deceased was over 80 years of age. He leaves a large family. Four of his sons, Alfred, Joseph, John Henry and Thomas reside in Sydney and the neighborhood."

      The Boutilier-Bellworth marriage is found on pg. 176 of St. George parish registers.
