"ABOUT THE AGE OF TWENTY-SIX, LOUIS DECIDED TO MARRY. ABOUT 1638, HE FOUND A RARE PEARL AT SAINT-MARTIN-DU-VIEUX-BELLEME. SHE HAD BEEN FATHERLESS SINCE 28 SEPTEMBER 1632. SHE WAS MARIE MICHEL, DAUGHTER OF THE LATE PIERRE AND OF LOUISE GORY.

THE COUPLE LIVED AT IGE WHERE THEY HAD TWO CHILDREN, THE FRUIT OF THEIR LOVE. THE ELDER, LOUIS, WAS BAPTIZED AT NOTRE-DAME-DE-VAIR ON 8 SEPTEMBER 1639... THEN AT IGE ON 21 JANUARY 1642, THE ELDEST OF THE DAUGHTERS, LOUISE, WAS BAPTIZED... LIKE MANY PEOPLE OF PERCHE AT THAT TIME WHO DREAMED OF THE NEW WORLD, THE GAGNES ALSO HAD THEIR EYES ON THIS LAND WITH THE IMMENSE RIVER, ENDLESS FORESTS AND INEXHAUSTIBLE RICHES. LOUIS GAGNE LOST HIS MOTHER MARIE LAUNAY ON 9 APRIL 1640. THE TIES WERE BROKEN. IT WAS NECESSARY TO CREATE NEW ONES."

'It seems that Marie Michel placed herself under the protection of her daughter Anne, living in the parish of Sainte-Anne du Petit-Cap. Abbot Germain Morin, curate, blessed her mortal remains on 12 November 1687, so that she might rest in the old cemetery of the ancestors, near her husband Louis Gagne. Francois Lacroix, her son-in-law, was the sad witness.'
