'Elisée & Elizabeth M. Thériault' [MRIN
Acadia... St Lawrence... Ontario
the exception of Jehan who was born in France, the first four
generations in this branch were born, raised and buried in
Journey of the Fifth Generation.
Paul, of the 5th generation, was born around 1716 in the St
Charles parish of Grand Pré, Acadia where he was raised. In
1740, he married Anne Hébert in St Charles and later they moved
to the more prosperous settlement of Beaubassin. This move may
have been part of a plan that he, his brother Joseph and their
cousin, Joseph [RIN1404] coordinated. With the burning of
Beaubassin in 1750 and the worsening conflicts with the English,
Paul decided to leave his homeland and migrate with his wife and
his then seven children to Rivière Ouelle on the Saint Lawrence
River sometime before 1759.
Generations 6 through 9 lived in the Province of Québec
(Kamouraska, Rimouski and Carleton). Generation 9 (Elisée)
however married his spouse in Ontario where he continued their
is the spouse of Steven Theriault who is a 12th generation grandson of Jehan Terriault.
