"As the friendship between the 29-year-old Robert and the Cloutier family grew stronger, he sought the hand in marriage of the 10-year-old daughter of his employer. Anne Cloutier was born in Perche in January of 1626, the daughter of Zacharie and Xainte Dupont... The marriage was to take place as soon as possible, however, the newlyweds were to continue to live in the Cloutier home for a period of three years... Their marriage was celebrated on 12 July 1637, in the church of Notre-Dame de Quebec, but their first child, Agnes, did not come into the world until January of 1641, after those three years of parental surveillance."

"Anne, 19 January 1626, married the brickmaker Robert Drouin in 1637. They had six children, all but two died in infancy. Anne herself died on 4 February 1648. Robert remarried in 1649 to the widow Marie Chapelier who was not accepted by the Cloutiers and, as a result, Zacharie and Xainte raised their granddaughters, Genevieve and Jeanne Drouin, as their own."
