I found some additional information on Germain LaVerdure Doucet in World Family Tree CD, Vol. 2, #4512. If this information sounds right, I can email Family Tree Maker and find out who submitted this information. Perhaps that individual can help you.
Germain LaVerdure Doucet was born in 1595 in LaVerdure, France, d. 1654 (unknown), m. 1621 in France, Marie Bourgeois, b. Abt. 1599 in LaVerdure, France, d/o Jacques Bourgeois.
Notes: Germain LaVerdure Doucet came to Acadia in 1632 from the parish of Conflans-en-Brie, perhaps in Savoie or Sedan, France, with his wife and son Pierre. Germain was a captain of the Army under Governor Charles d'Aulnay in Acadia and mayor of Port Royal. He returned to France after the fall of Port Royal to British troops. Whether or not he remained in France is not known. Sieu de Verdure (IGI) Dictionnaire National des Canadiens Francois
