If this Marie Anne Breau is Darios-36 mother, how can she be married to another man when he was supposedly born in 1738.
posted by Pat Songe
Pat, can you clarify? I see no connection of this Marie Anne Breau as mother of Darios-36, and can't even find a Darios-36 on WT?
posted by Stephanie Ward
Good observation Pat. Etienne Darois (the son, Darois-36) is connected to the wrong mother. His father also named Etienne, married Anne Breau, not Marie-Anne, her sister. Her profile isn't created yet, I will add it and connect her to Etienne father & son. These corrections to the Dictionnaire généalogique des familles acadiennes for p. 279 were made by Stephen White in 2011. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Thank you very much for verifying this. I knew this was beyond my ability to correct.

Breau-563 and Breau-553 appear to represent the same person because: Same name. Same birth year and place. Same parents (mentioned in Breau-563 biography). Both have same KTR source.
posted on Breau-553 (merged) by Cindy (Bourque) Cooper
Breau-553 and Breau-1 appear to represent the same person because: François Breau and Marie Comeau had only one daughter named Marie Anne born about 1706.
