Joseph Gautron (Larochelle) & Joseph Nadeau brothers-in-law of Andre Lacombe,
Further analysis. Recall that Jean-Marie Gagne stood in for the father at the marriage of Andre Lacombe.
Let's look at each of the above possibilities raised by Robert Chenard. Is there any connection to Jean-Marie Gagne?
M.-Josette Gagne, illegit. daughter of Louis Gagne (who m. Jeanne Cloutier in 1770)?
---------This Louis Gagne was Louis-Marie Gagne (1747-1822). the younger brother of Jean-Marie Gagne.
More on Louis-Marie: His third spouse (m. 1820) was Marie Louise Quirion Daniel who had had an illegitimate son with Augustin
Veilleux whom she later married.
He was a witness to his brother Jean-Marie’s wedding.
M.-Josette Roy, illegitimate daughter of Genevieve Roy (who. m. Jean Rodrigue in 1788) (parents: deceased Thomas Roy & Marie
Josephe Huard dit Desilets)?
----------This Jean Rodrigue was Jean-Marie Rodrigue, a stepson of Jean-Marie Gagne and son Marie Joseph Boulet and Jean-Baptiste
Rodrigue. Jean-Marie Gagne documented as step-father to Jean Rodrigue at his wedding to Genevieve Roy.
Another Marie Josette Roy in the family: Andre's parents Joseph Lacombe and M. Josette Carbonneau of Berthier had a son named Francois Lacombe who was married to Marie-Josette Roy (b.1770) (daughter of Francois Roy and Rosalie Tanguay) on 21 Oct 1797 at St. Vallier in County Bellechase. This information is from the Compte Bellechase repertoire at ACGS. He was a navigator who died two years later on 26 November 1799 at St. Vallier. This Marie Josette Roy would be the widowed sister in law of Andre.
M.-Josette Quirion, illegitimate daughter of Josette Quirion?
---------M. Josette Quirion (parents: Francois Daniel dit Kirion & Marie Marguerite Bolduc) was born 4 Feb 1764 atSt-Joseph-de-Beauce. I did not find a marriage nor an illegitimate daughter. However, her father Francois Daniel Quirion was a first cousin and friend to Jean-Marie Gagne's first wife Marie Francoise Rodrigue as documented at their marriage. Two of Jean-Marie Gagne's relatives by spouse Marie Joseph Boulet were Quirions, Quirion m. Boucher and Quirion m. Roy. M. Marguerite Bolduc Quirion had remarried Joseph Boulet in 1799. This made her a sister in law to Jean-Marie Gagne's wife M. Joseph Boulet. M. Marguerite Bolduc's brother married Louise Quirion, Their daughter Felicite Quirion married Charles Roy. Their daughter Marguerite Quirion married Pierre Boucher.
As for Native Heritage, I have Native Heritage through both of my grandmothers. This line that I am tracing is through a grandfather, Albert Alphonse Poulin. He was the great-grandson of this mysterious bride of Andre Lacombe via his daughter Sophie Rosalie Lacombe married to Henri-Jean Poulin (John Pooler). John Pooler settled in Waterville shortly after the LaCombe family. Of note, my grandfather Albert Poulin had aqua blue eyes and a ruddy but not red skin tone. He was friendly with the Passamaquoddy Indians while serving in the Maine State Legislature.
As mentioned in my last post, I am considering genetic testing to pursue solving this brick wall. I welcome hearing from any relatives of my ancestors. I especially welcome receiving information, documentation, and photographs. Thank you.
