Savard appears to cite Placide Gaudet but I'm having trouble locating this. It doesn't seem to be in Généalogie des Familles Acadiennes (see ).

Hi, M, I forwarded this to Denis in case he didn't see it himself today. Hopefully he will answer, he is very busy getting ready for the Acadian Congress. Cindy

In the biography, Pelagie is referred to twice as a male.
Link in source section has names and dates but gives no definitive sources for that information.
