Biography

Catherine-Josèphe Broussard was born around 1690 to parents François Broussard and Catherine Richard.[1] She was likely born at Port-Royal Acadia (Annapolis Royal Nova Scotia, Canada) as her parents had lived there since at least 1678. She was enumerated in the censuses of Port-Royal in her parents' household at the age of 3 (1693)[2], 7 (1698)[3], 10 (1700)[4], and 10 (sic) (1701)[5].
On October 29 1708 Catherine-Josèphe married Charles dit Charlot Landry, son of René Landry (le jeune) and Marie Bernard at Port Royal.[6][7][1] [8]Between 1710 and 1726 they had nine children born at Port-Royal: Charles, Marie-Josèphe, Catherine-Josèphe, François, Anne, Catherine, Marguerite, Ursule, and Marie-Madeleine.
They were listed in the 1714 census at Port-Royal with their son and two daughters. No land or possessions were counted.[9]
Catherine-Josephe's second husband was Charles Préjean, son of Jean Préjean and Andrée Savoie.[1] Their marriage took place at Port Royal on February 21 1729. The bride was about age 39, a widow who had had 9 children. The groom was only 23.[10]
Catherine-Josèphe died between 1730 and 1732.[1]

Broussard-508 and Broussard-1 appear to represent the same person because: Both Catherines have the marriage date 1708-10-29 and both from Port Royal, so I think these are meant to be the same wife of Charles Landry.
