Aurore!  The Mystery of the Martyred Child

Gérard Gagnon

Born in 1909, the son of Marie-Anne Houde and Napoléon Gagnon, he was 11 years old at the time of the trial. The Court was moved to the hospital to hear his testimony since he was unwell at the time of the trial. In 1934, when his mother was in the Kingston Penitentiary in Ontario, he took steps to have her come and stay with him. He stated in his correspondence that he had changed his name and that he no longer lived in Fortierville.
