Re: Des. of Claude Robillard & Marie Grondin
Hi Denis Bertrand and Amy.
I'm also looking into the Robillard's and I've come across a site that is related to your inquiries. On:
the site of Albert(Bert)Robillard from Morin Height's in Québec near Montréal.
He has all the details about your Marguerite and her parents right up to Claude and the dates all matches, he has Marguerite married to Antoine Franchepange but this is where the dates differs
He has Marguerite married on 11 jan 1808 in St Benoit,Qc,Ca.
Antoine is the son of André Franchepange and Josephte Gauthier.
I have talked to him personnaly and he seems to be quite sure of his sources which are posted on his site.
Now I don't know quite what to make out of this butthese info could be usefull somehow.
Note to Denis Bertrand: You mentionned footnote indicating Claude was from Riom near Lyon, This is quite a miracle since i have never been able to find anything regarding the origins of Claude.
I would appreciate it very much receiving details of this
I will be willing to swap copies of legal contracts signed by Claude which i'm trying to translate into readable modern french.I have about 75 contracts that details the daily life of Claude from Champlain to Montréal and to Lavaltrie where he died.
