Your comment: "Another information that we often see everywhere that I believe is false is that Jean-Baptiste who married Françoise Lacerte was the son of Louis Gatineau and Jeanne Lemoyne." _________________________________ I just found out this past week that PRDH says:
Jean-Baptiste was a child adopted by Louis Gatineau in Detroit in 1714. Two sources about this: an article published in La Presse newspaper on December 30th 1989 and the paper written by André Vachon entitled “Ramas”. _______________________________ This is from the list of original pioneers in Detroit:
Gatineau, Louis, sieur Duplessis, came to Detroit June 21, 1706.He was married Jan. 22, 1710, to Jeanne Lemoyne, at Batiscan. He is described as a merchant of Quebec. ________________________________ Other sorces seem to indicate that the Jean-Baptiste that Louis Gatineau, sieur Duplessis adopted was an Amerindian. If so than he may not have received a formal education. ___________________________ PRDH's Canadian record #104669 it says that: Jean-Baptiste Noble/Duplessis was an illegitimate,immigrant.
This would indicate that he was not born in Canada.His birth record say that he was born on 10 June 1714 at Ste. Anne of Detroit.That may be a baptismal date. _________________________ Jean-Baptiste is my cousin's 3rd great grandfather.She found all this very interesting.
