About Rene Rodrigue

Source: Rodrigue Families Association [1]

René Rodrigue was born on 28 July 1678 in village St-Michel in Beauport, and was baptized in Beauport the next day. Ancestor of the most numerous branch of the Rodrigue lineage descended from João Rodrigues, he married Élisabeth Dauphin (daughter of René Dauphin and Suzanne Gignard) in Beauport on 22 November 1703. They had 6 children: René-Joseph, Marie, Geneviève, Jean (who died at the age of nine months), Jean (the second bearer of the name), and Louis.

Among the descendants of René and Élisabeth bearing the Rodrigue surname, the majority, descended from Jean (married to Dorothée Fougère in 1731 in Beauport, and then to Marie Boulet in 1759 in St-Joseph-de-Beauce), settled in Beauce (a region south of Québec); from there, they migrated to the Eastern Townships, Montréal, and New England (above all, Maine and New Hampshire). One of Jean's sons, Jean-Baptiste, born in Beauport in 1736, migrated to Louisiana where he enrolled in the militia towards 1760. He married there twice, and had more than 20 children; his descendants are still many in Louisiana and in other states of the U.S. (I personnally was in contact by e-mail with Rodrigue from Florida and California who are among his descendants).

The youngest son of René, Louis, settled in the Lanoraie region (northeast of Montréal); he married there in 1740 with Ursule Trottet dit St-Jean, and in 1769 with Agathe Chapdelaine dit Larivière, widow of Joseph Charpentier dit Sansfaçon.
