Marie-Blanche Boudrot meanwhile was a daughter of Pierre Boudrot and Cécile Robichaud. This identification comes from me. It is based on the dispensation granted upon the marriage of Joseph and Marie-Blanche's son Joachim to Victoire Blanchard, at Richibouctou Village, Apr. 10, 1809. This record shows that Joachim and Victoire were second cousins once removed. Victoire Blanchard was a daughter of Joseph Blanchard and Marie Henry, a granddaughter of Anselme Blanchard and Marie Robichaud, and a great-granddaughter of Jean Robichaud dit Cadet and Marie Léger. By placing Marie-Blanche in the family of Pierre and Cécile we can explain the relationship, because Cécile was a half-sister of Jean Robichaud dit Cadet (see DGFA, pp. 1404-1405).
Now, I am sure that you are going to come right back at me to ask who the parents of Pierre Boudrot were, but I have to tell you that I cannot say. I have been unable to pin him down.
