Louise Armaindo (real name Brisbois)

Surnames: Brisbois, Brisebois, Armaindo
I am looking for relatives of Louise (or Louisa) Brisbois (or Brisebois). I believe she was born around 1860 in St. Anne-de-Bellevue, near Montreal, Quebec. She spent most of her life in the United States as a circus performer, trapeze artist, pedestrienne, and most importantly, a bicycle racer. From about 1877 onwards, she used the name Louise Armaindo. I have traced her to 1900, where she is in the Buffalo General Hospital. In 1896 she was badly injured in a hotel fire in Buffalo, which ended her racing career. I am writing a book about this early Canadian woman athlete, who was also a fascinating character. Please contact me if you think you can help.

Maybe this person is related ?

It is also possible the Brisebois is related as well since they are still in the circus buisness
