I am also searching for information about the parents ofFrancois PAYAN. Francois was married to Madeleine CANTIN. They had a son Jacques PAYAN DIT SAINTONGE ( born abt. 1674-1678 )who was married to Louise MORIN in Quebec, Feb 03, 1699. I am related through their son Joseph Jacques PAYAN DIT SAINTONGE married to Marie Jeanne LEGRIS DIT LEPINE.
