BOHARD Sophie Mademoiselle

In 1842-1843, Louis Martin (Thérèse's father) had done an internship with a cousin of his father, Louis Bohard, watchmaker in Rennes, grandfather of Sophie Bohard among others. Around 1880‑1881, she came to Lisieux to visit Mother Saint‑Arsène, a Benedictine (+ 1882), herself the granddaughter of François Bohard who had fourteen children, including Louis Bohard named above; on this occasion, Sophie met the Buissonnets and all the Martin sisters. François Bohard, Sophie's great-grandfather was the brother of Louis Martin's grandmother.
