I don't believe that the Jean-Baptiste who married Josephte Turcot was the Charles Baptiste born in 1745.
Jean-Baptiste Duplessis and Françoise Lacerte had 4 sons. Charles Baptiste born in 1745, Charles, born in 1750, Joseph, born in 1753 and Isisdore, born in 1763.
In 1781, a Jean-Baptiste Duplessis, son of J.-B and F. Lacerte was married with Josephte Turcot. As J.B. and F. Lacerte had NO son called Jean-Baptiste, which one had changed his name and was called Jean-Baptiste?
We know it is not Isidore who married Émilie Rouette. We know it is not Charles born in 1750. He married Josephte Vanasse-Précourt, 1st marriage and then Josephte Portelance-Roy, second marriage.
Who married Josephte Turcot? I have found children of Joseph Duplessis and Josephte Turcot and children of Jean-Baptiste Duplessis and Josephte Turcot. Josephte Turcot was married only once. Could the Joseph born in 1753 be the one who married Josephte Turcot? I believe it. I have also found the death of "Jean-Baptiste", husband of Josephte Turcot, in Pointe-du-Lac and the age would be the age of Joseph, not the age of Charles Baptiste.
I know that in some books they say it is Charles Baptiste born in 1745 (they say Jean-Baptiste but he was not baptized Jean-Baptiste) who married Josephte Turcot but I believe it is a mistake.
Another information that we often see everywhere that I believe is false is that Jean-Baptiste who married Françoise Lacerte was the son of Louis Gatineau and Jeanne Lemoyne.
I have seen the parish record of his marriage and the notary contract of his marriage and on both they say that Jean-Baptiste's parents are unknown. There was no family on the groom side present at Jean-Baptiste's marriage. Jean-Baptiste did not even know how to write his name. Louis Gatineau's children had good education.
Everybody knew Louis Gatineau at that time. He was a very important man. How could the priest and the notary write "whose father and mother are unknown" if J.B. was Louis' son?
