:”Foreseeing the second phase of the expulsion, which would be carried out in 1758 many of the families, including Cécile Boudreau’s, moved up the coast to Miramichi in 1757. They were exhausted, and suffered from starvation as a result of poor crops and from epidemics. Several of them then resigned themselves to following Boishébert’s troops, which had been recalled to Québec for the winter of 1757–58.

The situation at Quebec seemed little brighter. There was a dearth of supplies and a severe famine. The Acadians had to make do with cod and rotten meat. According to the testimony of several persons, these poor living conditions brought about the death of a number of Acadians. On 9 June 1758, amid the general gloom and inactivity, Cécile Boudreau had to bury her husband, who had fallen victim to the smallpox epidemic raging at the time. A month earlier she had done the same for her son Jean, barely eight years of age, and four days after her husband’s interment she buried one of her daughters.”[2]

She married Pierre Pellerin on November 03, 1762. [1] [3]

Cécile died on January 13, 1811 in Nicolet, Bas-Canada and was buried the next day.[1]

Boudreau-1364 and Boudrot-2 appear to represent the same person because: Same husband and some details match
posted by Paul Berry
Boudrot-2 and Boudrot-302 are not ready to be merged because: Parentage should be resolved
posted by Paul Berry
While I agree that Bodrot-2 and Bodrot-302 are the same person, what is uncertain is her parentage. While the Canadian biography gives her father as probably Charles, I think that Michel and Cécile is more likely given the Acadian custom of naming children after grandparents. I know there is no record of her parentage in Bona Arsenault, but I would like to compare some other sources.

Boudrot-302 and Boudrot-2 appear to represent the same person because: Clear duplicate.
