Trying to confirm link between Francois Gagne (1680-1753) and Jacques Gagne (1731-1808)

0 votes
I've been doing research in our Gonyea/Gagne/Gagnier line and was stuck at a brick wall until recently. I found a family tree on Family Tree Search that had verifiable sources. However tracing the line back I hit a snag at Jacques listed above. Jacques is shown as being married to Agnes Gervais. The tree shows his father as Francois and mother as Madeleine Dupuis. I found a matching family tree for Pierre but it is missing Jacques along with about six of his siblings. Now there are few sources listed for my Jacques so it's hard for me to confirm this match. I was initially hesitant since the family I have has 16 children (even if it looks like 4 died in infancy). I thought this might be excessive but then I looked on Pierre's info and it shows him having 13 children, including Francois.I would like to confirm this link as I see going from Pierre links into a LARGE gagne family. It would be nice to confirm this after going so long with no history before my G-G-Grandmother Salomae and her father. I've always suspected that many of the Quebec Gonyea/Gagnier/Gagne families were related. And it appears that way. SO does anyone possibly have any more research regarding this possible link. Or even evidence of them NOT being father and son. I have a few annecdotal references that seem to indicate it is true. But in the spirit of the site I want to find positive confirmation one way or the other. Thanks.

Jacques Amable was born in 1731, son of François Gagnier Dobigeon and Marie Madeleine Dupuis.

He married Agnès Gervais in 1765, on April 15 / Agnès daughter of Mathieu and Marie Robidou

On record of marriage the mother's name is Marie Jeanne Dupuis, probalby an error.

Some of the children are having dit-name Dobigeon, and one has dit-name Bellavance (Pierre).

Yes. Thank you. I've had a couple other people also respond to this. It is great to get this nailed down. And as an aside, I notice while tabulating the family members there are links to a few Barbeau members as well. So thanks for the help cousin.
