Thanks for the reply to my post; it's been there some time now. I was looking to restart the discussion on the Quebedeaux origins, specifically the children of Joseph dit L'Espagnol and Marie Antoinette Beau.
It is widely published on the internet that Charles Quebedeaux m. Marie Recuron was born in Feb 1751 and is the son of Joseph dit L'Espagnol and Marie Antoinette Beau. I question both the birth date and the identity of his parents. At his marriage to Marie Recuron his parents are listed as Joseph Quebedeaux and Marie Lest (not Beau), and Joseph dit L'Espagnol is listed as deceased at the marriage of 2 daughters in 1745. He could not have fathered Charles if he was indeed born in 1751.
There is a card file index from IRAD dated 28 Mar 1738 - "contract to hire Joseph Quebedo by Peltier, with permission of Quebedo's parents". In the 1732 census Joseph dit L'Espagnol is married with 5 children; he wouldn't need his parents' permission to take a job. This is almost certainly not a reference to Joseph dit L'Espagnol, but to a second Joseph Quebedeaux (possibly the son of Joseph dit L'Espagnol).
We know the names of probably 4 of the 5 children identified in the 1732 census: Mathurin, Marie Francoise, Marie Josephe, and Marie Jeanne. I believe the Joseph mentioned in 1738 could be the 5th child and would more likely be the father of Charles.
In any case, I look forward to any thoughts or information you may provide.
