We have 3 sisters with the same name.... Marie Parenteau.

Marie "Fille à marier" https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Parenteau-34

Marie "Fille du Roi" https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Parenteau-36

Marie married to Jean Rolland https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Parenteau-33

They seem to be born at St-NIcolas, La Rochelle. Can someone from French Roots try to find birth for these sisters...

lol, yes, they were probably named Marie Louise or Marie Madeleine or Marie X whatever, and didn't like their names so just went by Marie.  Happened a lot, one of my ancestresses was only known by Marie, but suddently on her funeral she is Marie Marguerite, and her sister is there for the burial, so probably the source of the corrected name.  Since we don't have baptisms, it will have to remain as is.

Hi Guy,

I have done some work on this family.  I worked  on the Parenteau-31 "Catherine Parenteau" who married Mathurin Bigras.  At this time i was working on the Bigras Family.I have found a lot of image of this Parenteau Family.   But could not found anything on Marie Parenteau.... they are from Saint-Sauveur LaRochelle and Sainte-Marguerite.  If you guys have questions... i'm available but can't help to find those images or proof cause i'm working on Langlois from Saint-Servan right now... sorry

There are really 3 sisters called Marie according to Fichier Origine: http://www.fichierorigine.com/recherche?numero=243167

The birth dates are approximate, which means the baptism records are certainly lost. What there is on WikiTree for the three girls looks correct.
