Jean Baptiste Landry was born about 1686. He was the son of Claude Landry and Marie-Catherine Thibodeau. Since the family lived in Les Mines in 1686 when the census was taken, and he was born after that census and still found in the same place in 1693, he is thought to have been born in Les Mines.
He married Marguerite Comeau, daughter of Jean Comeau and Catherine Babin 17 Oct 1718 at Saint Charles des Mines.
