I am troubled by accepting the name of Guillaume "Le Normand" Lemoine mother as Jeanne Madre.I have seen a copy of the marriage record of Guillaume Lemoine and Marie Sanmerine.There is given his mother's name as "Jeanne", but I cannot see "Madre", and according to the abstract, her name is not given.I have been told his mother's name is given as "Madre" in other original documents---but I have not seen this---which documents?Particularly troubling is even if "Madre" is stated, for instance, in a later record, perhaps the record of a later marriage, if the document is Spanish, for instance a marriage record of Pointe Coupee in the Spanish period----"Madre" means only "Mother", and what the document may be saying is only that his "mother, Jeanne"!!!!!!
Where is all this going????I don't know, but note that Charles Lemoine (of Montreal fame) had a son Jacques who married a Jeanne de Carion.Could it be that Guillaume is a son of that Jacques Lemoine and that "Jeanne"???If so that would make Iberville and Bienville his uncles, and that would be an important discovery!
So I say, from what original document do we believe that Guillaume Lemoine's mother was Jeanne Madre---and if it is a Spanish document---what are we seeing?????????????
