Notes for Pierre-François MACHABÉE/Marie-Catherine SIMON

In 1758, at the time of his marriage to Marie-Catherine Simon in Longue-Pointe, Pierre François Macchabe dit Lajeunesse Marin, a soldier in le Régiment de Guyenne, le Compagnie de Le Cormier is listed as originating in the Parish of Burgi, Diocese of Besançon, France. (in another document he is listed as an immigrant born 1732-05-04 in Burgille, Doubs). Church records indicate that his parents, Jean-François Macchabé and Jeanne-Françoise Tournon (or Tournoux), were also residents of Longue-Pointe, Québec at the time of this marriage, as were Marie Catherine's parents, Louis Simon Leonard and Marie Behic (Beique). Present at their wedding were: Jean Baptiste Blain, Chief Surgeon of the Regiment of Guyenne; Pierre Petjat, Sergeant; Jean Archambault; Toussaint Pepin and the missionary priest Reverchon. The bride had all of the necessary "permissions" to wed. At the time of the 1765 Census in Québec, the household of François Macchabé in Lachine is listed as consisting of 1 daughter, 2 sons under 15 years of age and a wife. The infant François died 1-1/2 months after his birth. No documentation other than the baptism has been found for Pierre Amable. It is possible that he did not survive his first year. Marie Catherine gave birth to nine children and died in February 1768, shortly after giving birth to twin sons.
