PRDH has no record of this marriage, however there are records for the baptisms of their children, the first one in 1646 at Trois-Rivieres.

Guillaume Pepin and Jeanne Mechin

"Guillaume must have married in the tririverine region about the end of 1645. There are some papers in the archives of Quebec which concern a contract of commitment to Pierre Lagardeur by Jean Msechin, a laborer, worker and sailor, living at LaRochelle. This colonist drowned at Cap-a-l'Arbre on 6 November 1646 with eight other Frenchmen while going to Trois-Rivieres by boat. It is possible that Jean Meschin was the father of Jeanne, a young girl who must have been fourteen or fifteen at the time of her marriage to Guillaume Pepin."

'Abbot Bellemare says that death surprised Guillaume, where he was living at the home of his son Pierre, at Point-aux-Sables, on the other side of the river in the future parish of Saint-Gregoire. On 12 August 1697, his mortal remains were brought to Trois-Rivieres to be buried there in the cemetery of the parish. his death certificate said he that he was about ninety years old. As for Jeanne Meschin, we don't know precisely the date of her death. An act by Severin Ameau drawn up in 1679 said that she was living but the census of 1681 does not mention her. Thus we must believe that she was taken sometime between these two years.'
