Marie Gaudet is the ancestral matriarch of one of the branches of the Acadian Aucoin family.

Marie was born around 1657 to parents Denis Gaudet and Martine Gauthier.[1]

Around 1657 Marie married Martin Aucoin, whose parents are unknown.[1] According to one descendant, their marriage took place in Port-Royal, Acadia.[2] Between about 1674 and before 1707 Marie gave birth 19 children: Martin, Marie, Michel, Isabelle (Elisabeth), Louise, Agnès, twins Alexis and Augustin, Cécile, Anne-Marie, Pierre, René, Catherine, Antoine, Françoise, Joseph, Jean, Charles, and an unknown girl.[1]

Between 1679 and 1686 his children were born in Beaubassin. In 1686 the family settled in the Minas Basin near Rivière des Canards.

Marie died at St Joseph de Rivieres-aux-Canards.[1]

DNA. Marie Gaudet's mother was Martine Gauthier. The Mothers of Acadia Maternal DNA project is conducting ongoing research to verify their origins. In 2010, Stephen White reported that Martine Gauthier had a J1b1 haplogroup. I don't know the details re how many of her descendants were tested to support this report. Lucie Leblanc Constantino describes one maternal tree here. Ongoing test results are also reported here. As of May 2014, 2 of 2 descendants have reported a J haplogroup, indicating European origins.
