Biography

This second wife of Alexis Doiron had a son & a daughter with Alexis. Both children died at sea during the 1758-59 crossing to France, when expelled from Ile Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island).[1]
Madeleine-Josèphe was born about 1738. She gave birth to at least 15 children, by G. Arsenault's account. She was the second wife of Alexis Doiron </ref> His first wife died soon after he moved to Grande Anse (now Orwell Bay), Île Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island) with extended family. The British expelled the family, along with most other Acadians of the island, to France (Brittany), in late Nov 1758. They returned to PEI in 1771-1772, eventually to Rustico. See the excellent article by Georges Arsenault, “The Saga of Alexis Doiron.”
The list of offspring & the date of marriage stand to be corrected. I followed, temporarily, the information in Robichaux, which attributes another wife to Alexis, between Marguerite & Madeleine-J. However, I have not found any other source that recognizes that even mentions that claim.[2]

    Text: Alexis Doiron, son of Louis Doiron and Marguerite Barrieau, was born in Pigiguit in former Acadie in 1723. In 1745, he married his first wife, Marguerite Thibodeau, with whom he had two children. During the uncertain period before the Deportation of the Acadians, Alexis took refuge in île Saint-Jean (today's Prince Edward Island) with his family. In 1750, Alexis was a widower and living with his mother in Grande-Anse. In 1758 he married his second wife, Madeleine Bourg, daughter of François Bourg and Marguerite Hébert of Cobéquit. At the end of November 1758, Alexis and his family were deported to France along with the majority of the 5,000 Acadians who lived in île Saint-Jean. Alexis and Madeleine had three children while they were in France. In the 1770s, Alexis and his family returned to settle in the Rustico region of île Saint-Jean, where they had five more children.
