My Native American Descendancy from Marie Mi'kmaq of Acadia, wife of Jean Roy dit Laliberté, pioneers

 Beginning with my grandparents:
Damien LeBlanc and Odille Doiron
Eustache Doiron and Modeste Cormier
Jean-Baptiste Cormier and Apollonie Babineau
Claude Cormier and Anne-Marguerite Roy
Benoit Roy and Euphrosine Bourque
François Roy and Marie Bergeron
Jean Roy dit Laliberté and Marie Aubois

The act of marriage rehabilitation for Anne Roy, for St-Jean-Baptiste Parish tells us that Marie Aubois was of Mi'kmaq ancestry.  Jean Roy (Jean LeRoy also known as Laliberté) was born at St-Malo (France) in 1648. He arrived in Acadia abt. 1671 and was listed at Cap Sable on the 1686 census.

In 1684 he married Marie Aubois, an Amerindian woman and together they had nine children.
Cap-Sable 1693 Census: Christine 35 [sic], Port-Royal 1698 Marie 33; 1701 36.

Priest Justinien Durand, Recollet Missionnary
Date of registration 3 March 1703 (should be 1706)
Event: Marriage
Groom Jean Clemenceau, native of Bordeaux, married at Boston
Father Martin Clemenceau
Mother Anne Duranteau
Bride Anne Roye born in Acadie
Father Jean Roye, native of St. Malo
Mother Marie Mikmak native of Acadia 

Note: The above record has been transcribed to read "Marie Mikmak" however the original record in French read "Marie Sauvagesse".  To my knowledge, in 1686 when Marie Aubois married Jean Roy dit Laliberté, the only "Sauvagesses" or "Sauvages", aka Natives, living in Acadia were the Mi'kmaw.

I love your site. I have been looking for my husbands ancestors When checking on Marie-Josette Benoît married to Alexis Chartier. I found her father was Pierre Benoit married to Marie Louise Goguet. Pierres parents Geofroy Benoit and Magdelaine Babin I was excited to know the rich heritage of my husbands family.
