Pierre Roy Desjardin’s 4th wife did not look right. I looked everywhere and finally found out where I went wrong. When I first started 12 years ago, I used Tanguay’s work. Years later I found out that he was only about 70% correct. When I discovered PRDH (University of Montreal) I checked all my data against their records. They are about 98% correct. I found several mistakes that Tanguay made. Tanguay has a fourth wife for Pierre Roy and that information is wrong. I have just now deleted her and if anyone is using my data, I hope that you do the same. Tanguay did a good job considering he was not doing it on a computer.
Antoine had only one child. That was Pierre Roy Desjardins married to: 1.Marie Anne Martin (my ancestor) 2.Angelique Autin 3.Marie Charlotte Delugre
Jette, PRDH and Peter J. Gagné all list only one child for Antoine Roy and Marie Major. It was Tanguay that listed a couple son and messed up their names and their wives. Those errors may stay out on the www forever.
Below is what I have on Marie Major one of the King’s Daughters. Here Gagne mentions only one son like Jette and PRDH (University of Montreal).
Enjoy, Janet ===== King’s Daughters and Founding Mothers The Filles du Roi, 1663-1673 By Peter J. Gagné Page 394 Marie Major was born about 1640 in the parish of Saint-Thomas in Touques (arrondissement and diocese of Lisieux), Normandy, the daughter of Jean Major (receveur of the barony of Heuqueville-en-Vexin and Aubeufen-Vexin) and Marguerite Le Pélé. After losing both parents, she left for Canada in 1668 at about age 28, bringing a dowry estimated at 300 livres. On 11 September 1668, Marie married Antoine Roy dit Desjardins at Québec City. Neither spouse could sign the marriage contract drawn up 06 September by notary Lecomte. A cooper, Antoine was baptized 23 March 1635 in the parish of Saint-Jean in Joigny (archdiocese of Sens), Burgundy, the son of master cooper Olivier Roy and Catherine Boderge or Bauldard. He arrived in Canada 18 June 1665 as a soldier with the Froment Company of the Carignan Regiment. Antoine and Marie settled at Batiscan, where son Pierre was born about 1669.10 Antoine and Marie lived in the home of millet farmer Julien Talua dit Vendamont at Lachine. Talua suspected a certain “familiarity” between his wife (Fille du Roi Anne Godeby) and Antoine Roy dit Desjardins. So after leaving before daybreak on 10 July 1684, he returned about 6 a.m. to find his wife in bed with Antoine. Talua picked up a stick and beat Antoine until he was dead. Surgeon Jean Martinet dit Fonblanche was sent to the crime scene to examine Roy’s body and prepare a report. Julien Talua was tried at Montréal and sentenced to death for homicide. He appealed the sentence and was granted a new trial date for the next year, having been released from prison and ordered to stay within three leagues of Québec City. When the time came for his re-trial, Talua was nowhere to be found and was never seen again. Pierre Gauthier dit Saguingoira, husband of Fille du Roi Charlotte Roussel, was named guardian of both Antoine’s estate and the possessions of Julien Talua dit Vendamont, which had been confiscated by the court. Marie Major died 08 December 1689 at the Hôtel-Dieu de Québec.
10Tanguay also lists Antoine, baptized 18 December 1671 (son of Siméon Roy dit Ody & Claude Deschalets) and Pierre-Jean-Baptiste, born in 1691, after Antoine died (1684).
