NOTE: Marie Catherine Guillet is referred to as widow of Jacques Masse in her second marriage to Sebastien Provencher -- Drouin Collection

According to PRDH, a marriage contract was signed between Jacques Masse and Catherine Guillet at an undetermined place in Quebec, Canada in 1669.

"...on 18 November 1669 before notary Jean Cusson, he signed a marriage contract uniting his destiny to that of Marie-Catherine Guillet, daughter of Pierre Guillet and Jeanne de Saint-Pere, living in Cap-de-la-Madeleine. Catherine had been born at Quebec on 18 June 1656. Her father was a master carpenter and it was he who seems to have built most the first houses at Cap-de-la-Madeleine. In the marriage contract, Jacques is mentioned as being the son of Jacques Masse and Philippe David, from Saint-Pierre-Chausse (Chole or Cholet), in Anjou... At his marriage, for which the religious act is lost, Jacques was 28 years old (even though the census of 1666 gives him 30 years) and Catherine was but 13."

"After a few years of widowhood, Catherine Guillet yielded to the importuning of Sebastien Provencher, widower of Maguerite Manchon. In the forenoon of 27 April 1691, the venerable notary Jean Cusson himself, presided at the home of the widow... Sebastien and Catherine accepted a contract... The nuptial ceremony followed the signing of the contract by little more than two weeks. It took place on 14 May, at the same time as the wedding of Louis Provencher, son of Sebastien, to Simonne Masse, daughter of Catherine."
