About Vital 'Felix' Constant Nicolle: Felix was born 23 February 1872 in Ivry-la-Bataille, Eure, Normandie, France to Jules Nicolle and Vitaline Galichet. He was about 9 years old when he arrived in Canada ca 1882. He served as a godfather for Mathilda Florida's baptism in 1890. Other than that, there are only two facts recorded that I have, so far, found. The first was a 1891 census record of Algoma, Ontario, listed him as a lodger. The last known fact for Felix Nicolle was his draft record for WWI 1917-1918. The record states his place of residence was Princeton, Marquette, Michigan, he was not married, that he was tall, with very dark brown hair and blue eyes and in good health. His age, at the time of enlistement, was 45 years old. After that, it's unknown what happened to him. I don't know if he went to France and was KIA, or stayed in France, or if he came back to the states. There is no record of him dying in France, there is no death record in Michigan for him. There is no mention of him in the probate records of Jules Nicolle.

About Daniel Ralf Nicolle: Daniel was born 8 October 1883 in the newly incorporated town of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada to Jules Nicolle and Vitaline Galichet. He registered for the WWI draft 1917-1918, but did not serve because he was blind in one eye. The draft card listed him as tall, medium build with dark brown hair and blue eyes. At some point before 1916, he moved to the International Falls in Minnesota, but returned after the death of his father. After 1920 he moved back to Minnesota, where he worked at several different jobs, but most of the time he was employed as a forester/timberman. As with Felix, he never married. Around 1930, he went missing in the Cusson- International Falls area, and later was declared dead. His body was never found..
