Anne-Marie Pitre, daughter of Marc Pitre and Jeanne Brun[1] was born about 1708 in Acadie. No date or location of birth was given by Stephen White in the Dictionnaire. She was not listed with her family in the 1708 census at Cape Sable.[2]

In 1714, her family was enumerated at Annapolis Royal (formerly Port-Royal until 1710) with 2 boys and 2 girls.[3]

Around 1728, Anne Marie married Pierre (dit le Grand Pierre) Cormier, son of Germain Cormier and Marie LeBlanc. [1] They settled in Beaubassin since at least two of their children were baptized there.

  2. Marguerite 1733-
  3. Marie ca 1737-1758
  4. Jacques 1740-

She died on 28 April 1741 in Beaubassin at about 33 years of age and was buried there the next day. [4] Were present Pierre, Germain and François Cormier as well as Henry L'Hostellier.

DNA Research

Stephen White confirmed by email 7 October 2020 that until 2011 it was assumed that Marguerite Cormier was the daughter of Jean Baptiste Cormier and Marie Madeleine Bernard but since then the maternal and paternal relationship has been confirmed by DNA testing and has shown otherwise. “Il faut donc corriger la filiation fautive de Marguerite Cormier, selon laquelle elle aurait été la fille de Jean Cormier et de Marie Bernard parce qu'on a maintenant la preuve génétique qu'elle était en effet la fille de Pierre Cormier et d'Anne-Marie Pitre.” (Translation: "It is therefore necessary to correct the faulty filiation of Marguerite Cormier, according to which she would have been the daughter of Jean Cormier and Marie Bernard, because we now have genetic proof that she was indeed the daughter of Pierre Cormier and Anne-Marie Pitre.").

Pitre-59 and Pitre-2722 appear to represent the same person because: I have come up with Anne-Marie Pitre tracing my mother' s maternal line. The date is close, and I know my Anne Marie was also married to Pierre Cormier.
