I am looking for information on the family & descendents of Michel Dextraze (aka Destrase dit Beziers), born about 1779. He was 73 at the time of his death on 16 Nov 1852, and was buried three days later in St. Gregoire, Iberville, Quebec. His first marriage was to Marguerite Menard (dite Bellerose). I do not know yet when/where this marriage took place. Marguerite died on 15 Nov 1825 at the age of 'about' 36, and was buried in Marieville, Rouville, QC. The following year, Michel married Charlotte St. Onge (aka Metilly dite St. Onge), also in Marieville. Her parents were Jean Baptiste Metilly dit St. Onge and Marie Renault dite Deslauriers. Following is a listing of Michel's children.
- Michel & Marguerite (at least these 14):
Michel, b. March 1808; sp Francoise Paquet Francois Xavier, b. July 1809 Pierre Paul, b. abt 1810; sp Charlotte Robidoux Toussaint, b. Nov 1810; sp Rosalie Lacombe Florence, b. Jan 1812; sp Alexis Besset Emelie, b. Dec 1813; sp Hubert Rheaume Eusebe, b. April 1815; sp Tharsile Ledoux Joseph, b/d July 1817 Marceline, b. July 1819; d. June 1838 Augustin, b. Oct 1821; sp Domitille Guillet Francois Xavier, b. Sept 1823; sp Louise Esinhart Olivier, b. bef 1825 Salomee, b. Nov 1825; sp Joseph Guillet
- Michel & Charlotte:

I have more detailed information concerning some of the individuals above, but am always looking for more. I am especially interested in date/place of marriage for Michel & Marguerite, and their parentage. It is possible that Michel's father was a Pierre who came from France. If anyone is interested in exchanging info, please email me privately.Thanks - Jeri
