Am looking for information on decendants of Jean Thouvenin still in the Yamaska area.
He married Madeleine LePire on Feb. 19, 1798 in St-Michel-d'Yamaska. His father was Claude Thouvenin dit- LaRiviere, who entered Quebec in a French regiment in 1755. Claude was born in Vathimenil, Lorraine, France, in 1729.
Jean had at least 7 children, one of which, Jacko/Jocko, moved to Vermont about 1840 with his family.
Jean and Madeleine were my Great-Great-grandparents,
through their son Jacko/Jocko, and his son, Paschal.
