Les Grandes Familles shows that Nicolas Audet dit Lapointe of Poitou France married Madeleine Deprés in 1670 and she produced 12 children approximate 2 years apart, the last one being born in 1691; her husband died in 1700.
Of the 12 there are 3 Nicolas noted; you have the first two and this site does not have a death record for either. The third Nicolas is the 7th child and born in 1680. This Nicolas apparently married Louise Chabot in 1697 when they were both minors. Actually this site shows that Louise Chabot had been married previously to Antoine Pouliot in 1696 - when she was about 15 years old - the record shows her death in 1756 and Nicolas in 1751 "at age 85 years" and that must be incorrect. Perhaps the numbers were mixed up and he was 58 - but I guess we'll never know for sure.
