If this is Claude Dugas born abt 1652 and died 16 Oct 1732, married to Marguerite Bourg, then he is the son of Abraham and Marguerite Louise Doucet and the grandson of Abraham Dugast born abt 1590 m. Marguerite Carsonne...

You do know that the old priests (even in my generation) almost always listed the 'saint' name first, thus Joseph Dumas for Dumas Joseph. That's why I suggest you search the records for your Dumas for any Joseph born about that time. For 2 cousins to carry the name of Dumas, it seems logical that they were named for a relative, an uncle or great uncle, etc.
