Since there is much conflicting information about Jean-Baptist and his parentage I thought it would be fun to conduct a survey of information.
Please supply the information you have regarding Jean and his parents along with any source information you have.Then we can further research it and try to solve the great mystery of who he really is.
I have Jean-Baptistborn 1758 in Grand-Pre, Acadie Died L`Acadie, Quebec 1822 (source:the year of Jean-Baptiste`s death may be proved through info on page 6 where it states that Etienne was married several months prior to his fathers death. He was married in L`Acadie Que in 1822.Land Application record were provided by Ken Miller on August 07, 2001.
Parents: Either Charles-Alexis Thibodeau and Anne-Marie Melanson (this would be difficult since the Winslow Journal states the Charles was a widow in 1755 when his was deported.Some say Ann-Marie was deported before her husband and Jean Baptist was born in the Louisiana, others that she and Jean Baptist were deported in 1758 But I have her as dieing in Maryland in 1755. Or He is the son of Paul-Oliver making Charles his Grandfather.
I have come across many other theories which is why I thought this little survey would be interesting.
Thank for your cooperation Linda Thibodeau-Bird Birdsnest4@Peoplepc.com
