Hi Joe!

The d' is French for 'of'.  The sentence translates as "Pelletier, Antoine, son of Eloi [Pelletier] and of Francoise Matte...."and goes on to explain where they are from or maybe just where Francoise is from.

Here is a link with info about Tanguay.

I see that you are in Ancestry, so there is general info about this source there as well: scroll down to the bottom of the page.

I believe the (2) indicates that the marriage to Francoise Morin is his second marriage, but i could be wrong about that.  

Since Antoine was the original immigrant, his first marriage could have taken place back home in France.  Then all Cyprien Tanguay would have in his parish records might be that Antoine was a widower rather than a single person when he married Francoise Morin.  Father Tanguay might not have had the name of the first wife to put into his Genealogical Dictionary.

This has been clarified by Claude -- the (2) is referring to the footnote, not an effort to indicate a second marriage for Antoine.

Tanquay's Dictionnaire généalogique des familles canadiennes is also available at banq's link

Citing PREFEN, Au Perche des Canadiens Français and Association des Familles Pelletier, says of Antoine Pelletier:

  • Il épouse à Québec, le 19 août 1647, Françoise Morin, originaire de La Rochelle.

Concerning the (2) ahead of Françoise Morin in Tanquay, vol. 1, p. 470, this refers to note (2) at the bottom of the first column.

The notion of there possibly being two marriages is therefore in my view purely speculative.

Edit, my last sentence should read:

The notion that Antoine should have married in France is therefore in my view purely speculative.

Morin, Francoise (2),

NOTE (2) at the bottom : She married Michel Dumay on 28 Jan 1648  in Quebec (this is her second marriage)

Thanks Claude!  I have editted my earlier comment
Most excellent, Actually your Eloi is the one where I added this.

Thank you.
