Just to complicate things, in the course of editing another entry, a source (Charles Samson, of LA) informed me:

"For Acadian Genealogy, you should refer to Stephen White's Dictionaire Genealogique des Familles Acadiennes as an excellent source. He lists the siblings of Jeanne Martin.... and Marie was not known as Marie Reine (and she married Andre Simon, not Simoneaux); Rene did not have a middle initial (St. Jean Baptiste de Port Royal was in Nova Scotia, not NB); and there was no Elizabeth."

There seems to be no documentation for Elizabeth, so I propose to delete her?
