The couple above were from Clermont, France where they remained.

Urbaine was born in Clermont, FR and came to Montreal as a recruit of Maisonneuve in 1653. There is a vivid account of
the voyage written by a nun who made the trip. (Bourgeoys)

Another of the 1653 recruits was Mathurin JOUSSET dit LA LOIRE whose son, Jean Baptiste JOUSSET dit LA LOIRE (my
ancestors) was a recruit of d'Iberville along with Jean Baptiste BAUDRAU dit GRAVELINE, for the Gulf Coast expedition
of 1699.

Rene JETTE's book has an accurate account of the early family in Montreal.

Someone on the list must have info on the Graveline society which has published info on the early families.
