Descendants of Pierre Deshaies-dit-St.Cyr

Generation No. 1

       1. Pierre1 Deshaies-dit-St.Cyr was born about 1648 in France, and died 06 Jun 1732 in Bécancour, Nicolet, QC. He married Marguerite Guillet-dit-Lajeunesse about 1677 in Unknown, QC, daughter of Pierre Guillet-dit-Lajeunesse and Jeanne St.Pair/St.Pere. She was born 17 Aug 1660 in Trois Rivières, St. Maurice, QC, and died Aft. 1713 in Bécancour, Nicolet, QC.

Notes for Pierre Deshaies-dit-St.Cyr:
As of today, it is impossible to find out where Pierre Deshayes come from and the name of his parents. The majority of the census indicated he was born around 1648.
He may be the Pierre Deshayes that is listed in the 1666 and 1667 census at Trois Rivières as a 19 year old domestic at the home of Marie Boucher, the widow of Etienne Pepin de Lafond and sister of Pierre Boucher, governor of Trois Rivières.
February 22, 1672, it receives from Michel Godefroy, his first ground of three arpents face on twenty and one of depth, with the Michaelmas river, Bécancour. September 13, 1674, the Father Louis Nicolas, in the name of the lords of the Jesuits, concedes another ground to him. According to a note of a last act on May 26, 1676, it is indicated there that Pierre Deshayes, inhabitant of Batiscan, and Jean Lariou his associate to build a barn, of 30 feet of frontage, by 24 feet of depth, for the account of Thomas de Lanouguère, lord of Holy-Anne-of-the-Pérade.
In 1677 Pierre married at Trois Rivières, Marguerite Guillet.
The 1681 census showed Pierre Deshayes's name twice. He was still working for Marie Boucher at Cap de la Madeleine, and his family was established at the Seigneurie de Linctot (Becancour). He was 33 years old and his wife 21, 2 daughters. He had at this time 8 arpents of land cleared since 1672. He also rented a cow.
At age of about 84, he was buried at Becancour the 6th June 1732. At this time he was given the title of captain of the militia; he served in the militia on the fief Dutort in 1726.

Generation No. 3

       16. Joseph-Pierre3 Deshaies-dit-St.Cyr (Pierre2 Deshaies-dit-St.Cyr/St.Cire, Pierre1 Deshaies-dit-St.Cyr) was born 14 Mar 1728 in Bécancour, Nicolet, QC, and died 31 Dec 1809 in Nicolet, QC. He married (1) Marie-Catherine Petit-dit-Milhomme 28 Apr 1752 in Unknown, QC, daughter of Pierre Petit-dit-Milhomme and Marie-Catherine Masse.

Genevieve de Berthier, Berthier en Haut, QC, daughter of Antoine Genereux and Marie-Josephe Turcot. She was born Aft. 1733 in Unknown (perhaps Berthier), QC, and died 30 May 1808 in Nicolet, QC.

Notes for Marie-Josephe Genereux:
The reason you are unable to find the birth of Marie-Josephe and some of her siblings is: Although there are some parish records for Berthierville recorded in the St. Joseph of Lenoraie parish registry prior to 1733, no parish registries for St Genevieve of Berthierville exist between 1733 and 1751. Bsides Marie-Josephe and her siblings many of her Genereux cousins births are also missing. No doubt this is why the death of Pierre Genereux who Married Francoise Dessereaux is not known. This was explained to me by the webmaster of PRDH in response to the same question about the birth of one of my early Genereux ancestor.
