Louis Marie Chauvin and Louis Chauvin de Beaulieu are two different people. Marianne Francour, daughter of Joseph Francour, married Louis Marie Chauvin in 1770.[1] Her mother was not Marie-Angelique Charland. The deBeaulieu children previously shown as Marianne's children are probably the children of Louis Chauvin de Beaulieu and Marie Marguerite Hazeur (Azur).[2]

location - Tchoupitoulas - may be from the wife of Louis Chauvin de Beaulieu (a different man than her husband). See next comment, from Chauvin de Beaulieu's profile.
