"On 22 April 1679 at L'Ange-Gardien, Robert married Jeanne Le Chevalier... Jeanne was about thirty-four years old, the daughter of Jean and of Marguerite Romain of Saint-Nicolas de Coutances, in the Manche, Normandy... This was the second marriage for Jeanne Le Chavalier. She was the widow of Guillaume Lecanteur, Sieur de la Tour, son of Nicolas and of Jeanne Hamelot of Saint-Sauvier de Beaumont-en-Auge, Normandy. Le Canteur was already living in Quebec as early as 9 July 1670. he signed his marriage contract with Jeanne on 11 October 1671. This couple had three children: Nicolas, Charles, and Guillaume. When the census of 1681 was taken, Nicolas and Charles were mentioned but not Guillaume. Then Charles disappeared too. Years later, on 24 September 1693, Robert Levesque gave his remaining step-son a piece of property of six arpents in frontage on the River Ouelle. Some time between that date and 4 October 1693, a period of about two weeks, Nicolas died. We know this because that was the date on which his mother Jeanne had the gift annulled because her son was dead."
