Clothier, Senator.

Born at Rigaud, Vaudreuil County, Quebec in 1846, son of Alexandre Gauthier and Mathilde Chevrier, he was educated in Rigaud, then Ecôle de Bourget. He was married twice, first in 1880 to Isabella Johnston (?-1884) at Ottawa and they had three children. He was married a second time to Miss Agnes McMullen (?-?), daughter of Hon. D. McMullen and they had two children, including Eudore Chevrier. Chevrier’s business career began with his father in the clothing business in Ottawa. He came to Winnipeg in 1871 and operated a clothing and fur business called “The Blue Store.” It was later carried on by his sons Horace and Eudore. He was appointed a Senator in January 1909. He died at his Winnipeg home, 106 Balmoral Street, on 9 October 1911. He is commemorated by Chevrier Boulevard.
