Biography

Marie Marthe Thibodeau was born and baptized on 21 Feb 1661 or the 24th, in Montréal, the daughter of Mathurin Thibodeau and Catherine Aurard or Avrard.[1]

On 9 April 1673 Jean Boursier Lavigne and Marie Marthe Thibodeau were married at Notre-Dame de Montréal. [2]

(See Jean Boursier for Accounts of Life & Lachine Massacre)

On August 5th, 1689, Jean Boursier dit La Vigne, his wife and children were killed by the Iroquois.

During the early morning hours of August 5th, 1689, the Iroquois, under cover of a severe thunderstorm, canoe along the south bank of the St-Lawrence River and cross to the small French settlement at LaChine, at the mouth of Lac St-Louis where the St-Lawrence flows into the lake.


Jean and his wife Marie Marthe Thibodeau are asleep with their son Jean and two daughters, Marie Elisabeth and Madeleine. Jean is 44, Marie 28 years of age, daughter Elisabeth and mother's helper 9 years of age, little brother Jean was 3, and baby Madeleine 11 months. They shall not survive the day.......

Alexandre, 15, Marguerite, 13, Barbe, 11, Anne, 7, and Jeanne Catherine, 5 shall escape the carnage.

Fifty-six (56) of the homes and buildings are set afire. Those families barricading themselves within their homes are burned to death. The screaming is unimaginable........

Baby Marie-Madeleine Boursier, 11 months old, is drowned by a vengeful Iroquois. Her little body will be found on the banks of Lake St-Louis and she will be buried on the land........

Madeleine's mother Marie, her father Jean, and sister Elisabeth and brother Jean shall never be seen again or identified among the dead........

The nearest help was 8 miles east in Montreal and might as well have been on the moon........

The carnage is awful. Twenty-four of the villagers are hacked to death. Ninety are captured, 42 of whom will never be seen again. Sixty six of the captured will be slaughtered by burning at the stake, and drowning. It was over within the hour and the decapitated and dismembered dead were left as they fell........ It was a scene of horror for Son Alexandre, age 15, when he returned home to the carnage days later...........

Marie Marthe's body was never recovered, so her date of death is uncertain.[3]

It is worth noting that Marie marries a 29 year old young French man, a new arrival in Canada. At the most, he has only been in Montreal a couple of years when he marries this 12 year old young French woman. His parents are in France and he is truly on his own in the midst of this French and Iroquois Indian settlement called Montreal.
