With the exception of Jehan who was born in France, the first four generations in this branch were born, raised and buried in Acadia.

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 (Jean) remained in the Province of Québec area.

Ernest Brousseau the great-grandson of Delia Rose Theriault, who is a 7th great-grand-daughter of Jehan Terriot. Ernest is our Delegate for the Jean & Lumina W. Theriault Great-Branch.

Photo 1.  Delia
In 2002, Ernie sent in the photo at left with this note:

"I am sending you a picture of my great grandmother Delia Rose Gaudreault. Her maiden name was Therriault. She is the one on the left. The other two I don't know you they are. I'm hoping some one can Identify them for me.

I don't know when or were the picture was taken. She died Jan 20,1953. Also, she lived in Willimantic , Connecticut most of her adult live. The photo could have been taken there.
She was also known to go to Canada and Massachusetts to visit family.

She is the daughter of Jean and Willemine (Duchene) Therriault..."
