Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? It is said that on the stroke of midnight, farm animals acquired the marvellous and unusual gift of speech. Oxen, cows, horses, pigs, and poultry began to speak to one another and to exchange strange secrets about humans, particularly their masters. Bad luck, the risk of being struck dumb or, worse still, even death came to those who tried to spy on them. This belief was prevalent not only in France but also in Francophone Canada. Another belief says that at midnight, farm cattle kneel in the stable to worship the Infant Jesus. It is clear that these two beliefs are closely linked to the even older one that Jesus was born at midnight.

Drouin Collection records for Sainte-Famille begin in 1666.
According to PRDH, a marriage contract was signed in 1665 in an undetermined place in Quebec, Canada between Joseph Ozanie Nadeau and Marguerite Abraham. PRDH also indicates records of baptisms of their children, the first one in 1667 in Sainte-Famille.

"On Friday, 6 November 1665, Joseph-Ozanie Nadeau dit Lavigne, was at Quebec, in the house of the notary Duquet. Several witnesses had been summoned to mark the occasion. In civil law, the marriage contract always took on great importance. Even important people did not hesitate to travel to support their more common friends... Who was the future wife of Joseph-Ozanie? She was none other than Marguerite Abraham, a daughter of the king, born at Saint-Eustache de Paris, about 20 years old, daughter or Guillaume Abraham and of Denise Fleury... The day of the nuptial blessing was not recorded in the registry. We can assume that it was given by Father Thomas Morel, perhaps in the parish of Sainte-Famille. The sur name of Abraham implies that Marguerite was of Jewish origin."

"On 26 January 1678, at the residence of the widow, the notary Pierre Duquet had come on snowshoes to settle the terms of the marriage contract. The Breton Guillaume Chartier, in New France since 1674, so of Olivier and of Marie Cornet, about 29 years old, originally from Sainte-Marie de La Haie-Fouassiere, canton of Vertou, arrondissement of Nantes in Brittany, committed himself to marry Marguerite Abraham... At the church of Sainte-Famille on the island on the following Monday, 21 January, the pastor Lamy blessed this union in the presence of the witnesses Noel Forestier, Michel Enaud, Jean Jouanne and Isaac Pasquier dit Lavallee... This marriage had no descendants and seemed to be strained."
