Hello Joyce,Here it is a year+ since you posted your note on the O.E Monnette's book and your direct ancestor, Jean-Francois Monet dit Laverdure Biscornet m. Marie Dumas...I descend from their son Pierre Monet who was the 2nd husband of Elizabeth Corse Dumontet.
They married in LaPrairie in 1730. She had 8 children(m.at 16in 1712) with Jean Dumontet dit LaGrandeur, and 8 more with Pierre.
