Biography

Joseph (Abraham) Demarais, son of Pierre Abraham and Marie-Josephte Joyal, is documented on the Quebec Genealogy site, Nos Origines with birth and death dates and location in Saint-Francois-du-Lac, Quebec/New France. (Note that Joseph's birth year predates the surrender of New France to Britain in 1757. His year of death may predate the use of Upper and Lower Canada, therefore it is just Québec.)

Based on the Généalogie Québec source, the surnames Abraham and Desmarais were used interchangeably in this family. WikiTree should use either the surname of record, birth or death, or consider using "Abraham Desmarais" as a compound surname.

The word 'dit' means 'say' or 'said' in English or, loosely, 'called', and doesn't make a lot of sense as part of a surname. In Jean-Baptiste's case, if he was born as Abraham and his grave or death record says Desmarais, then leave Abraham in the Former surname and simply Desmarais in the Current Surname.

The Find A Grave memorial names Joseph as "Joseph Abraham Desmarais".
