Robert Drouin and Marie Chapelier

"On 26 November 1649, Robert penned his mark to the bottom line of his second marriage contract. Marie Chappelier, widow of Pierre Petit, a native of Compte-Robert-en-Brie, daughter of Jean and of Marguerite Dodier, accepted him as her husband... Old Zacharie Cloutier did not trust stepmother Chapelier. 'He feared that the said children were mistreated by this new woman.' He took custody of his two grandchildren during the time his son-in-law lived at Trois-Rivieres (around 1650)."
