Note: Catherine was 38 years old in the 1671 Port Royal census which would put her birth ca. 1633. She was also document as being "le bebe" when her family arrived in Acadia ca. 1636.
Note: d'Entremont in his "Histoire du Cap-Sable, 1763", states the first Lejeune and his French wife arrived in Acadia before or during the time of Isaac de Razilly. Isaac de Razilly was appointed Governor fo Acadia in 1632 and died three years later in 1635. d'Enterment implies that the Lejeunes arrived in Acadia sometime prior to 1636. d'Entremont also notes the first Lejeune couple had three children at the time of their arrival in Acadia: Aimee Lejeune, born between 1622 & 1625, Pierre Lejeune, born after Aimee and before Catherine Lejeune, who was born about 1633. d'Entremont further states tha Pierre Lejeune II married an Amerindienne

Note: Author states "the Lejeune family is one of the oldest in Acadia" He also states the Lejeune family arrived in Acadia about 1636, which reaffirms d'Entremont, and that the family included Pierre Lejeune from the region of Poitu, France, his unnamed wife, and three children: Edmee, born in Poitu in 1622, Pierre II and "le bebe Catherine" Lejeune.

I've read arguments for Catherine being of Mikmaq descent, and they argue that the reason her mtDNA was European is because at some point in her ancestry a Native man had a child with a European woman. But that wasn't very common at all; it was European men and Native women who often married in those days. So the evidence certainly points to Catherine being of European descent.

Paul,

I agree with you assessment that Catherine and Edmee are not of Mikmaq descent. They are both born of European Descent and Jeanne M. Kagigoniac is NOT their mother.]


On August 3, 2013 Paul Shenton wrote:

With respect to the link to Mikmaq families and the Lejeune sisters, Catherine and Edmee Lejeune have been shown again and again to have European U6a mtDNA. Please go to http://www.acadian-home.org/origins-mtdna.html#Catherine Lejeune. The wishful thinking and family legends of some has been utterly overthrown by DNA testing.
