Marguerite DUGAS married immigrant flag Pierre ARSENAULT (ARCENAULT) (ARSENEAU)-- Date: 1675 Place: , Acadia, Canada
About 1675 Marguerite, married Pierre Arsenault, in Acadia, Canada.

(White, Stephen A. Dictionnaire Généalogique des Famillies Acadiennes. volume I. Moncton, Canada: Centre d'Études Acadiennes, Université de Moncton, 1999).

Pierre Arsonneau, born perhaps at La Flamancherie in the Saintonge region in September 1646, became a coastal pilot. He may have come to the colony aboard L'Oranger in 1671. He married Marguerite, daughter of Abraham Dugas and Marguerite Doucet, in c1675. Pierre does not appear in the Port-Royal census of 1678 because, not long after his marriage, he and Marguerite moved to the new Acadian settlement at Chignecto. Pierre remarried to Marie, daughter of François Guérin, in c1686. That year, in his census, De Meulles noted that "Arsenault, who resides in Port-Royal[,] owns in the seigneurie of Beaubassin 1 gun, 30 arpents, 8 cattle, 4 sheep, 6 hogs." De Meulles insisted that Pierre was age 40 in 1686, and Marie was 24. They were counted at Port-Royal with Pierre's two sons by his first wife, who created families of their own. Second wife Marie gave Pierre seven more children, including five more sons who created their own families.
