"Myth: Gabriel's wife Genevieve Hayot died in 1713. Reality: Genevieve's mother died Nov 9, 1713. Genevieve lived at least until 1730 and perhaps much longer. Transactions that support this include: 21 Mar 1715, Genevieve attended baptism of Pierre Martin at Charlesbourg. 9 Mar 1718, Genevieve and Jean sold their Charlesbourg farm, Notary Basset dit Deslauriers. 28 July 1723 Genevieve was witness to baptism of Madeleine Berard at Sorel. 24 Jan 1730, notary Delafosse, Genevieve's children assign their inherited rights to a d'Autray farm to Genevieve. On that same 24 Jan 1730 by the same notary, "Genevieve Ayot, habitant, of Ile-St-Ignace, widow of Jean Turcot" sold a portion of land on Ile-St-Ignace. Thus Genevieve was living near or with her son Gabriel fils (junior) and many other relatives that lived at that time on Ile-St-Ignace in the Sorel Parish."

Details of the family tree of Geneviève appear below.

Did You Know? Québec Généalogie - Over time, Québec has gone through a series of name changes
From its inception in the early 1600s until 1760, it was called Canada, New France.
1760 to 1763, it was simply Canada
1763 to 1791 - Province of Québec
1791 to 1867 - Lower Canada
1867 to present - Québec, Canada.

"Myth: Gabriel and Genevieve were married at Neuville in 1673. Reality: Their marriage contract was drawn by Quebec notary Romain Becquet. The first church in Neuville was constructed from 1679-1697. I have not seen any evidence of where or when their marriage ceremony took place."

'(1) A small 'breaktrough' about Gabriel's last days comes from a document filed by Notary Barbel on behalf of Gabriel's widow, Genevieve Hayot, dated Dec 12, 1709. In her renunciation of debts, she notes that 'her deceased husband having died in the service of deceased Monsieur Hazeur about five years ago.' That would be Francois Hazeur who held the lease on the Tadoussac Region. Thus, it seems that Gabriel died while working at a post in the region or while on an expedition there on behalf of Francois Hazeur, and not while on an independent trading expedition. Good additional detail and a confirmation, of sorts, of his last days being in the Tadoussac region.

(2) In the same document, Genevieve notes that she owns 'a 'mechant' (no-good) habitation located in the seigneury of d'Autray, which they had to abandon as much because the Iroquois killed all of their animals as because of a fire that happened to them.' Interesting. Gabriel and his family left d'Autray in 1696, during...Read MORE...

'The following is my best information on Genevieve Hayot's last years, with the summer of 1731 at Ile-St-Ignace being my estimate of when and where she died.

As noted earlier, on Jan 24, 1730, per record filed by Notary Delafosse, Genevieve Ayot [Hayot], habitant, of Ile St-Ignace, widow of Jean Turcote, sold a portion of land at Ile-Ste-Ignace to Jean Ride of Longeuil. Thus Genevieve was then living there on that island with or near her son Gabriel fils and many other relatives.

No further details on Genevieve have been found, including where or when she died except it was after Jan 24, 1730 and apparently before Nov 4, 1732 when Notary Delafosse recorded a contract for her son Gabriel fils' remarriage.

Genevieve may have perished in a June-July 1731 epidemic on Ile-Ste-Ignace that appears to have taken 5 of her great grandchildren descended from daughter Louise (mid-June to mid-July) followed by 4 of her grandchildren from son Gabriel fils and on July 31st, Gabriel fils'...Read MORE...
