Marie Pitre married Jean-Baptiste Abraham/Desmarais on 10 October 1785 in St-Francois-du-Lac, Lower Canada. [1][2]

Marie's marriage record on Nos Origines gave her age at marriage as 35 years, but that would make her over 100 years old at death in 1851. A birth year of 1760 is a more reasonable estimate.

As stated on Joseph Desmarais's profile, 'dit' is an interjection indicating that this family may be called Abraham or Desmarais. It is not part of the surname. Some of the children of Joseph Desmarais were recorded as Abraham and some as Desmarais. What they used themselves can only be determined if there were censuses or gravestones to verify what name was recorded there.
