Genevieve LeBlanc (My 4th g-Grandmother)
Genevieve LeBlanc was born on 11 March 1799 at Mission du Sud du Lac, Saint Francois, Quebec., and she was baptized on 15 July 1799 at Les Cedres, Soulanges, Quebec. Genevieve was the eleventh child born to Etienne LeBlanc and Amable Rivard (subjects of earlier blog posts)
On 26 November 1817 Marguerite married a Louis Dupuis in Saint-Anicet Quebec and the marriage was recorded in the parish records of St Regis, Quebec. The couple would live in Saint Anicet, where Louis was a Judge. From this marriage would come eleven children, one son and ten daughters.
Genevieve would die on 1 September 1869 in Saint-Anicet, where she was buried beside her husband. At one time, the couple supposedly had the largest headstone in the Saint-Anicet with a bust of Louis on the top.
