Biographical history

Alexis Eliahim Poisson, J. Samuel Poisson, and J. Ed. Hercule Poisson are all members of the family of the seigneurs of Gentilly, Quebec, and related to the poet Adolphe Poisson, 1849-1922. Each of the three men studied medicine at Quebec, first at the Séminaire, and later at the Medical Department of Laval University. Alexis Eliahim Poisson either graduated from the Séminaire, or may have been one of the first students at Laval University, together with F.A.H. Larue.
