Pierre Rollin dit Maconais
Pierre Rollin dit Maconais, my 5th Great-Grandfather, was born about 1732 in France to Pierre Rollin and Francoise Gathier. Pierre was my last ancestor to arrive in Quebec from France, circa the 1750's, from the Parish of Saint Clement, Macon France.
Pierre, at the age of about twenty-nine, took for his bride a thirteen year old Madeleine Forest. (Subject of a previous post)

Pierre and Madeleine would reside in Les Cedres Quebec through the mid 1770's, Vaudreuil Quebec through 1781, and would finally settle in Chateauguay Quebec. From the marriage of Pierre and Madeleine would come thirteen verified children, five daughters and eight sons. Pierre and Madeleine may have had three to four more children, but parish records to verify this are missing for their first nine years of their marriage.
Pierre died at the age of sixty-six on 19 February 1798 and was buried two days later in Chateauguay Quebec
