Atteaux (1881), merchant, of Boston, son of Robert and Marion (Wiggett) Atteaux, was born in Lennoxville, Province of Quebec, Canada, Nov. 28, 1852. He married, May 6, 1885, Carrie E. Willard. He attended school in his native town and also Bishop’s College. In 1870 he entered the dry-goods trade, in which he was engaged until 1877, when he became a manufacturer of and dealer in dye stuffs. He is at present of the firm of F. E. Atteaux & Co., manufacturers and importers of aniline colors, dye stuffs, and chemicals, Nos. 172 to 178 Purchase Street, Boston.”
Mr. Atteaux (1881) is a member of the Masonic Fraternity, Mystic Shrine, Elks, and Red Men. His residence is No. 10 Trull Street, Dorchester District, Boston.
Given that Nana’s house was probably built in the 1880s, Mr. Atteaux was very likely the first resident of Nana’s house.
