Barnabé, René dit Barnabé)" at Acadians in Gray: Acadians in Gray
"Meanwhile, Barnabé Martin, born in France in c1636, probably no kin to Pierre of St.-Germain de Bourgeuil, came to Port-Royal in the 1660s and started another, even larger line of the Martin family in Acadia. In c1666, he married Jeanne, daughter of Simon Pelletret of Paris and Perrine Bourg, at Port-Royal. They had eight children, including two sons who created families of their own. One of their sons moved to Île St.-Jean by the 1750s, but the other one remained at Port-Royal. Four of their daughters married into the Simon dit Le Boucher, Coste, Chênet or Chesnay dit La Garenne, Samson, and Gentil families. Two of their daughters settled at Port-Toulouse, Île Royale, but the others remained at Port-Royal. Barnabé died at Port-Royal by 1686, probably in his late 40s. Jeanne remarried; she died at Port-Royal in January 1706, age 63."
