Marguerite (Fontaine) Fontaine dite Bienvenu lived
in Canada, Nouvelle-France.

Marguerite Fontaine was born about 1697 in Canada, Nouvelle-France. Her parents were Pierre Fontaine and Marguerite Anthiaume. (DOB estimated, no baptism found for her, and her funeral gives no age; her parents moved locations between 1693 and 1699, so place of birth is uncertain.).

Marguerite Fontaine, daughter of Pierre Fontaine and of Marguerite Anthiaume, married Paul Desmarais, son of Paul Desmarais and Marie Tetreau, on 23 Apr 1715 in Contrecœur (Ste-Trinité). [1]

Marguerite Fonteine, widow of Paul Marais, remarried with Joseph Leduc, son of Charles Leduc and of Angélique Chevalier, on 9 Jan 1745 in Saint-François-Xavier parish of Verchères.[5] No issue from this marriage.[2]
