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.
