Philippe Mius-d'Azy was born in Acadie about 1660, son of Philippe Mius-Sieur-d'Entremont-de Pombomcoup of France and Madeleine Helie, also from France. He was listed in the first Acadian census at 11 years of age in his family's household at Pombomcoup (present day Pubnico, N.S.) [1]
He was counted again in the 1686 census but this time in Port-Royal. He was 24 years of age (with no mention of wife or child), living with his widowed father age 77 and younger sister Madeleine. [2]
The first spouse of Philippe Mius d'Azy was an unknown woman. Her name on WikiTree is Marie Coyoteblanc and is a modern construct given by some who aren't comfortable with using "Unknown" and want to give her honor and dignity--she and her parents are currently unknown to us. [3] They married around 1678 and between about 1678 and around 1684 they had four or five children: Joseph, Marie Marguerite, twins Maurice & Mathieu and Françoise.[4] (see discussion below)
Marie Coyoteblanc very likely passed away after 1682 (estimated birth of Mathieu and Maurice) and before 1687 since around that year Philippe married another Amerindian woman also named Marie.[3]
The 1708 census shows Philippe living in a Mi'kmaq community at La Hève with his second wife Marie and six of their children.[5]
The same census indicates that Jacques and Marie Coyote-Blanc’s grown children had settled in Cap-Sable (Joseph 35, Marie 28, Mathieu 26) and in Mouscoudabouet (present day Musquodoboit Harbour, N.S.) (Maurice 26).
The second spouse of Philippe Mius d'Azy was also an unknown, likely an Amerindian woman, given the name Marie Kjipuktuk on WikiTree, a modern construct given by some who aren't comfortable with using "Unknown" and want to give her honor and dignity--she and her parents are currently unknown to us. Between about 1688 and 1705 the couple had nine children: Jacques, Marie, Pierre, Madeleine, Françoise, Francois, Jean Baptiste, Philippe, and Anne Marie dite Nanette.[4]
Philippe passed away after the census of 1708.

NOTE: Today the name d’Entremont is reserved exclusively for the descendants of Jacques I Mius d’Entremont and that of Mius is reserved exclusively for the descendants of Philippe II Mius d’Entremont.[6]


First Wife

The Mothers of Acadia Maternal DNA project is conducting ongoing research to verify the descendants of Philippe's first wife and thus her haplogroup. In 2020, Stephen White reported that the unknown spouse of Philippe Mius d'azy married about 1678 had a haplogroup X2a2. Lucie Leblanc Constantino has not reported a maternal family tree here. Ongoing test results are also reported here. As of May 2014, only one descendant has reported an X2a2 haplogroup. The detailed results of the test need to be examined in order to distinguish between European and less common Amerindian origins.
DNA results of "Mothers of Acadia Maternal DNA project".
Another group known as Amerindian Ancestry Out of Acadia DNA PROJECT, posts its results here. Five of five descendants of "Marie Coyoteblanc, wife of Philippe Mius d'Azy NS" report an "A haplogroup", consistent with Amerindian origins. (DNA maternal testing of some five women all lead back to Philippe Mius II 's first wife, but they have not provided a family tree to verify these claims. They could all be related to the Simoneaus of Louisiana through Françoise's half sister Marie Marguerite.)

Second wife Marie

The Mothers of Acadia Maternal DNA project conducts research to verify Marie Unknown, the second spouse of Philippe Mius d'Azy, who married about 1687. As of May, 2020, Stephen White had no reported results for her [7]

The descendants of Philippe II Mius d’Entremont, known as d’Azy, all have Native American blood, because all his children resulted from his marriages to the Native American women.[6]

Jacques Bonnevie's wife, Françoise Mius is often included in the list of children of Philippe and his first wife. There's no known documented evidence of her parents. This not to be confused with Françoise of Philippe's second marriage.[8][9]
Likewise Jean-Baptiste and Marie are often assumed to be children of Philippe and his second wife.[8]
Plusieurs auteurs ont écrit que Françoise Mius, femme de Jacques Bonnevie's était aussi une fille de Philippe et sa première femme. Cette Françoise n'est pas la même Françoise, née de sa deuxième femme. [8][9]
Egalement, ils écrivent souvents que Jean-Baptiste et Marie sont les enfants de Philippe et sa deuxième femme, Marie. [8]

Research Note

Stephen White in the Dictionnaire généalogique des familles acadiennes added a note on page 1207 concerning the children and spouses of Philippe Mius d’Azy  : “C’est la reconstitution de la famille de Philippe Mius d’Azy par le Père d’Entremont que nous avons suivie ci-dessus.” In other words, his list of Philippe Mius d’Azy’s spouses and children was based on Père Clarence J d’Entremont’s research in his book Histoire du Cap-Sable.
Here is the list in the Dictionnaire:

Philippe Mius, aussi connu sous le nom de Mius d'Entremont et Philippe II d' Entremont d'Azy, était le fils de Philippe Mius, baron de Pobomcoup et de Madeleine Hélie. Il est né vers 1660, fort probablement à Pobomcoup, Acadie car sa famille a été enumérée à cet endroit lors du recensement de 1671.[1]. Philippe a aussi été compté lors du recensement de 1686 mais cette fois à Port-Royal. Âgé de 24 ans, il demeurait avec son père qui venait de perdre son épouse, et sa plus jeune soeur Madeleine. Il n'y avait aucune mention d'une épouse ou d'un enfant, bien qu'il était fort probablement marié à ce moment à Marie Coyoteblanc.[2] Plus tard vers 1687 il a épousé une autre amérindienne dont le nom est inconnu mais qui a été nommée Marie Kjipuktuk par la suite afin d'honorer ses origines, tout comme l'a été Marie Coyoteblanc.

HI, PM's, I was looking at De_Saint_Castin-2, for a source and came across reference to a marriage with Philippe Muis D'Entremont. I wonder if it's this one? However, I can see there is a great deal of discussion about who is who regarding this family. Would appreciate your thoughts before I try to connect them. Cindy

Mius-147 and Mius-24 appear to represent the same person because: Unsourced, unconnected, orphaned profile with matching birth year.

Françoise is currently assigned as a child to Philippe's second wife, Marie K'jipuktuk. Until such time that DNA testing confirms which of the two wives had which children, the current assignment of the children stands. If no DNA tests resolve the issue then the trusted list genealogists will decide the assignment of Phillipe's eleven children.

I'm not sure if he had another spouse but if he did he would have been very young as he was age 18 at his marriage with Marie Micmac
