Three months after Jeanne’s death, in February 1717, her sons had the 1705 Agreement ratified. Her youngest son Joseph died in 1755 and was survived by 9 children. Her second son, Pierre Joachim who left 12 children, died in 1759, just before the fall of Quebec to the English. Francois-Robert, her oldest son, lived until 1765, leaving behind 11 children, among them Jean-Baptiste, my ancestor. In all, 32 of Jeanne’s grandchildren survived her and then went on to create thousands of descendants. [⇒]
On Monday morning, January 30, 1713, Jeanne Marguerite Chevalier sat in her room and dictated her will. She was 69 years old and was now living in the home in Rivière Ouelle, Quebec, along the St. Lawrence River, where she had lived for so many years with her second husband, Robert Levesque. It now belonged to her second son with Robert, as a result of the agreement reached in July, 1705.
I found the copy of the will just by chance, 300 years later in the summer of 2013. [⇒]
