Joseph Orillion dit Champagne was born in Port-Royal in 1718. He was the son of Charles Orillion dit Champagne, who had come from France to Canada in 1703, and Marie Anne Bastarache.
Joseph married Marguerite Dugas in 1746, at Port-Royal. She was the daughter of Francois Dugas and Claire Marie Bourg. Their children were, Joseph born 1748 and Marguerite born 1750.

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Joseph:
