Excerpt from A Point in History: Jacques Ménard dit LaFontaine

Maurice Ménard was an interpreter and legal fur trader, a voyageur, who married a metis, Madeleine Couc around 1692 at Fort Michilimackinac. Her mother was an Algonquin Indian and her father a French fur trader, Pierre Couc. The fort appears to have been their home base since at least five of their children were born at there. As a family the Ménards and Coucs were well-known and successful fur traders. Three of Maurice Ménard's sons, Antoine, Louis and François were traders also. A nephew, Étienne Demers, son of Jeanne-Françoise Ménard and Clément-Étienne Demers, was also engaged in the trade.

The parish record on Généalogie Québec has her marriage to Pierre Boileau as 5 July rather than the 5 May. Nos Origines has an estimated birth year of 1683 rather than 1693. May warrant further investigation if it's not a typo.

Ménard-1348 and Menard-212 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, same approx birthdate (both are estimates). Same spouse. No conflicting information.
posted by Cindy (Bourque) Cooper
Menard-617 and Menard-212 appear to represent the same person because: same woman, spouse etc. date of birth is questionable if parent's marriage date is accurate
posted by Danielle Liard
Menard-311 and Menard-212 appear to represent the same person because: same woman, spouse etc, she only uses Marguerite in all records found. Ref Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967
