Paul Chiasson was born about 1726/1727.
Paul married Louise Boudrot on the Isle St Jean c1754.
Paul is certainly the Paul Chiasson, listed in the 1763 Letter to the King of France (Census) living next to his father in A Tracadie on the Isle of St Jean.
Four years later in 1767, Paul Chiasson (41), his wife Louise Boudrot (31), and their children Germain (9), L'Amand (5), Rose (2) and Basile (11) were recorded in the 1767 census of the islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon with a note that says they had come from Ile St Jean.
The family may have moved from Beaubassin or Miquelon but most likely Colony of St. John's Island to Chéticamp in 1786.
Paul and Louise arrived at Cheticamp  and were enumerated, together with their son Basile (31) with Adelaide Arseneaux. His brother Jean (46, with wife Isabelle Boudrot), Joseph Boudrot (23) with wife Anne Chiasson, Lazare LeBlanc (33) with wife Modeste Chiasson, Etienne Chiasson (22) (son of Jean Chiasson & Elizabeth Boudreaut) l with wife Monique Gaudet (daughter of Joseph Gaudet and Anne Richard).  (No mention of sons Augustin, L'Amand, Joseph, or jean).
Lemong along with parents and three brothers, Basile, , John, and Gemain are all listed in the 1798 census for Lot 43 on Prince Edward Island. Along with a relation (perhaps a brother of Paul named Ruisle (male over 60, living with two females one under 16 and one 16-60) in the census).
In Paul's household there is one male over 60 (Paul), one female over 60 Bourdot-534 and one male aged 16-60 (of one their sons -Joseph, or Raphel). This document suggests Louise is not the "Widow Shassong" mentioned in Rustico : une paroisse acadienne de L'Ile du Prince-Edouard on page 61.
Paul remained on PEI while his sons Basile, Germain, and Joseph returned to Chéticamp shortly after the 1798 census; though some of their children did settle on PEI.
Paul is believed to have died before 1820.
