Aloha Barbara,
My info is from Rene Jette's excellent genealogical dictionary of the early French-Canadians. Unfortunately he does not give any events that occurred after 1730.
Pierre Tessier was born 4 May 1679 at Petite Auvergne in Charlesbourg and baptized the next day at Quebec. He died 26 Feb 1718 and was buried the next day at Charlesbourg. He and Marie-Anne Vivier m. 7 Jan 1794 at Charlesbourg and had 6 kids at or near Charlesbourg between 1705 and 1716. The first was your Marie-Josephe born 28 Apr 1705 at St Romaine and baptized the next day at Charlesbourg. Jette shows that she married Jean-Baptiste Molleur in 1730. (Since Jette doesn't give events after 1730 it is possible that J-B died and Marie-Josette married a second time as you indicated.)
Pierre's parents were Marc Tessier or Texier (son of Michel & Renee Goron) and Jacquette Ledoux (widow of Jacques Grimaux)
m. 26 Nov 1668 at Quebec. Pierre was the 5th of their 5 kids. Marc was born about 1641 and he was from Ste Hermine, arrondissement of Fontenay-le-Comte, diocese of lucon, ancient province of Poitou (department of Vendee today). Michel Tessier/Texier and Renee Goron did not come to Canada. On 2 April 1665 Pierre contracted at LaRochelle, France to go to Canada.
Your Tessier line is interesting. Most of us on the this Tessier Family Forum trace back to Urbain Tessier (or Texier) dit Lavigne or to Mathurin Tessier also early Quebec settlers. There was a Jacques Tessier dit LeMarquis from Bourneau in the same arrondisement, diocese, etc. as Marc but apparently he was not closely related to Marc, Urbain, or Mathurin (or a Pierre Tessier or Texier from the diocese of Saintes).
Best, Jerry
