Miss Mary Boutilier did NOT marry Robert Nutter. He was married to her first cousin. So
my original question still stands.
Thanks for looking at the problem, however.

The Library and Archives Canada site where I found this, in their Post Offices and
Postmasters database, states "certain personal information deleted from this file
because of the privacy act."
Does anyone know what might have been the story behind this that LAC are trying to cover
up? (When they say they "deleted" it, I hope they didn't really delete it,
but instead just didn't post it on their website!) Perhaps she died in 1892 and there
was something controversial about that?
I really do NOT think it is much of a mystery.

Miss Mary Boutilier is appointed as PM in 1869. She marries the widower Robert Nutter
in 1878 but is still Miss Boutilier in the official record. On Nov 1, 1892, Mary Ann
Boutilier Nutter (who re-applied for the job) is appointed under her married name as PM.
Mary dies Oct 29, 1906. Her widower is appointed to the PM job on May 8, 1907 and he dies
May 4, 1909.
