Anne Lemire was born into a historically significant family. Her grandfather Nicolas Marsolet, was specifically documented as one of 30 men with Samuel de Champlain in 1608 when Quebec was founded. In 1610, Marsolet became Canada's first interpreter in the fur trade with the Montagnais natives whom he lived among until Champlain died in late 1632. Marsolet, and other interpreters who came after him traveled to Paris to advise civil and religious leaders in France on native policy.  Anne's father, Jean Lemire was a syndic and master carpenter in Quebec who helped construct the Quebec Cathedral of Notre Dame. 
Anne married Laurent Tessier in 1681. They had two children, who reached adulthood, Marie Anne and Jean Baptiste. Laurent died in 1687. In 1689, Anne married Pierre Jolliet. He was an ambassador to the Iroquois natives, dangerous work at that time. The couple had a child, Madeleine, who died in infancy in 1691. Pierre Jolliet died in 1694. Official confirmation of this marriage has not been documented. Anne married for a third time in late 1694 to Marc Antoine Desjardins, sieur DeRupallay in late 1694. They had three sons, who survived into adulthood: Paul Desjardins, sieur deRupallay, born in 1696; Henri Charles Desjardins, sieur de Gonneville, born in 1698, and Louis Antoine Desjardins, born in 1700 and died in 1723. By 1701, Anne was a widow again, now with five children to raise. In 1701, Anne's brother Jean Baptiste Lemire dit Marsolet, a carpenter, was with Antoine de Lamothe Cadillac building a fort in Detroit and founding that city. When he was done, he returned to Montreal. In 1715, another fort was built in Michigan, Fort Michilimackinac. We do not know if he also built this fort due to lack of records, but we do know that he was working here as a fur trader after the Fort was built. At this time he sponsors Anne for an engagee license. Records show that she is licensed and works for the commandant of Fort St. Joseph hiring voyageurs in the fur trade. Women, especially widows of officers, were permitted to be licensed in the fur trade in order to support their children. What is known is that her son Charles did own what has been designated as House E at Fort Michilimackinac, next door to Rene Bourassa, who lived in House F. These two men were married to two sisters., which made them brothers in law. Charles was married to Marie Charlotte Leriger LaPlante. Rene Bourassa was married to Marie Catherine Leriger LaPlante. Charles lived in this fort from 1727 to 1754. Fort Michilimackinac in Michigan has had a continuous archaeological dig in progress since the 1950's. In the summer of 2015, Fort Michilimackinac Curator and Archaeologist Dr. Lynn Evans released news reports that an intact ivory rosary had been found and dug out of Charles Gonneville's house. This was one of the biggest finds ever discovered here. Besides the rosary, nearly 3,000 craft beads were found under the house, more beads than found under all the other houses combined. It seems that a beadwork craft shop operated from this home. Anne Lemire and her daughter Marie Ann Tessier can be found as great grandmothers on Louis Riel's family tree.
