Jean-Charles VACHER dit LACERTE was the child of Jean-Guillaume VACHER dit LACERTE and Marguerite BENOIT


"Jean-Charles Vacher, godson of Governor Rene Gultier de Varennes, was baptized at Trois-Rivieres on 12 March 1686, a little more than three months after the marriage of his parents. He had already settled in Yamchiche when, on 5 November 1709, he was married in Trois-Rivieres to Marie-Claire Bergeron, born in Sorel in 1686. They eventually had five sons and seven daughters. Following in his father's footsteps, Jean-Charles was more than a farmer. He too, practiced the trade of wood working. On 5 February 1759, he bequeathed his tools and workshop furniture to his son Charles. Jean-Charles and Marie-Clarie Bergeron were both buried at Yamahiche, he on 11 September 1761, she on 19 March 1767."
