I am a descendant of jean deniau and helene dodin. Jean may have been related to Marin deniau...they supposedly arrived on the same ship at quebec. jean deniau and helene dodin were both killed in an iroquois raid in august 1695 at boucherville. does anyone know the circumstances of this? these events were often written up in some detail but i have been unable to find a reference that gives more information...deniau is often found with the modern spellings denault and daigneault etc etc.
