1642 Baptism
'...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.'
