Delia Gagné Brin (1876-1931)
and Antoine Brin (1864 - unknown)
Before moving to Lac-des-Seize-Îles, Delia, one of Moïse Gagné's daughters, had married Antoine Brin in Roxton Falls in 1896. Gil Cook, a resident of the lake, remembers an exceptional woman:
'One of Moses' daughters, Delia, married Antoine Brin Jr. She turned out to be one of the most admirable women this lake has ever known. A well-built woman who had a heart as big as she was. Nothing was too difficult for 'Mrs. Brin,' as she was affectionately called. On many occasions, this angel of mercy kept an all-night vigil over a sick child or a suffering mother - our local Florence Nightingale. Many a newborn has owed its safe entry into the world to Mrs. Brin's skill and compassion.'
