Jean Baptiste the adopted son of Louis Gatineau, sieur of Duplessis.

I just found out this past week that PRDH says:

Jean-Baptiste was a child adopted by Louis Gatineau in Detroit in 1714. Two sources about this: an article published in La Presse newspaper on December 30th 1989 and the paper written by André Vachon entitled “Ramas”.
This is from the list of original pioneers in Detroit:

Gatineau, Louis, sieur Duplessis, came to Detroit June 21, 1706. He was married Jan. 22, 1710, to Jeanne Lemoyne, at Batiscan. He is described as a merchant of Quebec.
Other sorces seem to indicate that the Jean-Baptiste that Louis Gatineau, sieur Duplessis adopted was an Amerindian.

There may be a note to this effect in the 1714 records at Batiscan. I don't have access to these records.
PRDH's Canadian record #104669 it says that:
Jean-Baptiste Noble/Duplessis was an illegitimate,immigrant.

This would indicate that he was not born in Canada. His birth record say that he was born on 10 June 1714 at Ste. Anne of Detroit. That may be a baptismal date.

Enjoy, Janet
