Suzanne (Ménard) Mesnard lived
in Canada, Nouvelle-France.

Suzanne Mesnard (later family spelling Ménard) was born between about 1695-1697 at Contrecoeur, which was then part of the Gouvernement de Montréal in Nouvelle-France. [1]

She was the daughter of Pierre Mesnard (Ménard) and Suzanne Laporte dite St-Georges. [1] [2]

On 5 Oct 1717, Suzanne who was in her early twenties married Gabriel Giard, age 42, whose first two wives had died young, at Contrecoeur, Nouvelle-France. [1] [2]

She and Gabriel Giard had more than 11 children together between 1719-1738, the youngest when Gabriel was in his early sixties. [2]

Suzanne died at the age of approximately 61, on 24 Feb 1757 - and she was buried in the town in which she was born, Contrecoeur - still part of Nouvelle France at the time of her death.[2]
