My 3rd g-Grandparents, Augustin Dubreuil and Esther Dupuis, had seven daughters in Saint-Anicet Quebec. Five of the seven Dubreuil daughters would play a part in my ancestry with my LeBlanc and Graton branches.
1. Esther Dubreuil was born on 21 March 1845 in Saint-Anicet Quebec. Esther would be the first of three Dubreuil sisters to marry three Graton brothers She married, in Saint-Anicet, Francois Graton on 4 October 1870. The couple would have eight children born in Saint-Anicet, before emigrating to Aitkin Minnesota.
2. Melanie Dubreuil was born in January of 1855 in Saint-Anicet Quebec. She was the second Dubreuil sister to marry a Graton brother, when she married Maurice Graton on 6 Jun 1875 in Saint-Anicet. The couple would have four children, born in Quebec, before they emmigrated to Aitkin Minnesota. In Aitkin Minnesota the couple would have an additional two children.
3. Genevieve Dubreuil was born on 10 April 1858 in Saint-Anicet Quebec. She was the third sister to marry a Graton brother, when on 24 February 1881, she married Damas Graton in Saint-Anicet. The couple would have seven children of which three sons and three daughters would survive infancy. Damas and Genevieve would emmigrate to Aitkin Minnesota.
4. Marguerite Dubreuil was born on 21 dec 1853 in Saint-Anicet Quebec. Marguerite married Antoine LeBlanc on 5 November 1877 in Saint-Anicet. The couple would have ten children of which four would reach adulthood. Like her sister's, Marguerite and her family would emmigrate to Aitkin Minnesota.
5 Virginie Dubreuil was born about 1844 in Saint-Anicet. She married an Adolphas Villeneuve and the couple would have seven children. Unlike her sister's, Virginie's family would settle in upstate New York.
The story of the Dubreuil sisters and their families would become intertwined in that;
Melanie (2) would become a widow in 1915. Her sister Marguerite (4) would die around 1920, and Melanie would marry Marguerite's widowed husband Antoine LeBlanc.
Esther (1) would have a daughter named Helena. The younger brother of Marguerite's (4) husband would marry the daughter Helena and become my g-Grandparents George LeBlanc and Helena Graton.
Esther (1) would have a son named Steven and Virginie (5) would have a daughter named Marie. Steven and Marie, first cousins, married each other.
