Marie Guérin is an ancestral matriarch of the Acadian Arsenau family.

Marie was born around 1662 to parents François Guérin and Anne Blanchard.[1]

Sometime after the 1686 Census she married Pierre Arsenau, widower of Marguerite Dugas. Marie gave birth to 6 sons: Charles, Jacques, François, Claude (dit Ambroise), Augustin, and Abraham, and a daughter Anne.[1]

Marie died after April 25 1723. [1]


"Pierre Arsenault, pilote côtier, s'est marié deux fois. Vers 1675, il a épousé Marguerite Dugas, fille d'Abraham Dugas et de Marguerite Doucet, qui lui a donné deux fils. Vers 1685, il a convolé avec Marie Guérin, fille de François Guérin et d'Anne Blanchard, qui lui a donné six autres fils et une fille."[2]

Guerin-976 and Guérin-51 appear to represent the same person because: The date of birth is wrong on my side. I am very careful in what I put down Your computers are not very accurate in some cases

- Jean Bernard's book volume 1 Arsenault

Guerin-976 and Guérin-51 do not represent the same person because: Can't be the same person if there is a 38 years difference

How could Marie born in 1700 have a son Abraham born in 1702? Please take a look at this family tree by genealogist Karen Theriot Reader citing genealogist Stephen White

Guerin-976 and Guérin-51 appear to represent the same person because: Date of birth is different but same spouse and same son Abraham who are also duplicates. Merging into Guérin which is the correct spelling.

Arceneaux-215 and Guérin-51 appear to represent the same person because: Same name. Same approx birth year. Checked with Isabelle and here is her response:

I reviewed the profile Arceneaux-215 and agree with your conclusions. I set up an unmerged match with Guérin-51 as I think this profile is really intended to be her. If you agree, you could change the Unmerged match to a merge. Perhaps the previous parents should be merged away into Guérin-51's parents as well. I hardly think they could be someone else?

Left note for Isabelle to review again.

The text says she married Arseneau sometime after the 1686 census, but they appear together on the 1686 census: Pierre ARSENAULT 40, Marie GUERIN 24; children: Pierre 10, Abraham 8.
