:Marguerite Cormier was born about 1706 to parents Alexis Cormier and Marie LeBlanc. She was likely born in Beaubassin as her parents were found there in the 1698 Census. On August 18 1722 in Beaubassin she married Pierre Arsenau, son of Pierre Arsenau and and Marie-Anne Boudrot. [1] "Marguerite was 16 years old. They were granted a dispensation for an undisclosed degree of affinity (sic). They should have been received a dispensation for a third degree of consanguinity (third cousins). The bride's father was among those that signed: Alexis Cormier." [2] By 1734, the couple had settled in Malpeque Ile Saint-Jean, now Prince Edward Island. [3]
