Was Marie-Madeleine Dancosse who married Pierre Boucher, Feb. 4, 1697 at
Riviere-Ouelle a Metis? I've just read where she was a
Mic-Mac indian, but when I traced her line back on the PRDH I have not been
able to find any possibility of that except possibly her
Great Granparents, Jean Trottain and Madeleine Blanchard m. bef. Dec. 31,
1645 in an unknown place. Does anyone have any further
information on these people, or know of any other way that Marie-Madeleine
Dancosse could be of Mic-Mac extraction. Thanks

Good afternoon, cousin Dave!
According to Jette, Marie-Madeleine Dancosse, born 24 Jun 1680 at
Riviere-Ouelle, baptised 30 Jun 1680 at Quebec, married Pierre Boucher on 04 Feb 1697
at Riviere-Ouelle, is the daughter of Pierre Dancosse (or Dancause) and
Marie-Madeleine Bouchard, who married about 1679 at Riviere-Ouelle.
Marie-Madeleine Bouchard, born 31 May, baptised 02 Jun 1663 at
Chateau-Richer, is the daughter of Michel Bouchard, from Andilly-les-Marais, canton of
Marans, diocese of La Rochelle, Aunis, and Marie Trottin, both from La
Roche-sur-Yon, diocese of Luçon, Poitou. Michel Bouchard and Marie Trottin married 02
Dec 1662 at Chateau-Richer.
Pierre Dancosse came from the city and diocese of La Rochelle, Aunis.
I am fairly certain that the likelihood that the daughter of a father who
came from the diocese of La Rochelle, and whose maternal parents also came from
the diocese of La Rochelle was herself a Mic-Mac, or a member of any other
native North American nation is ± R [if R = Ridiculous] Your question isn't
ridiculous, Dave, but whoever wrote that Madeleine Dancosse was a Mic-Mac is.
