Around 1673 Catherine married Jacques LeBlanc, son of Daniel LeBlanc and Francoise Gaudet. Between about 1674 and 1690, they had 13 children.
By 1678 they were living with her parents in Port Royal along with their young son. Catherine was about 18 when he was born. 
Less than a decade later Jacques and Catherine have a busy household with 9 children, including a newborn baby and a large number of animals. Her parents live next door. Jacques' own parents are another door away.
Move from Port Royal to Minas Basin By 1693 Jacques and Catherine have moved to Minas, by then a village just a little smaller than Port Royal. Catherine's brother Jean also moved and was just two plots away. All of their 11 children are born and ten still living at home, with Ignace just a toddler.
They are not found in the 1698 or 1700 Censuses but resurface in a nearby (new? or renamed?) location in 1701, now living in Riviere St. Antoine, Les Mines Three of his sons are identified as able to bear arms. In 1703 and 1707 they were enumerated at Les Mines. Although Jacques and Catherine are listed in Port Royal in 1714, there is no breakout for the Mines areas, so we don't know if they are in the same house. Seven children are living with them.
Could not find a source for death in the Parish Registers of Nova Scotia, Grand-Pré Les Mines (1709-1748). (starting at image 837) http://heritage.canadiana.ca/view/oocihm.lac_reel_c1870/837?r=0&s=1 Cormier-1939 03:27, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
