Pioneer Jean Baillargeon’s original occupation was share-cropper. After arriving in Canada he cleared the land and farmed first in Sillery Seigneurie and then in Ile d’Orleans. He had immigrated from Angoumois (France), married Marguerite Guillebourday in 1650 and the couple had two sons from whom the Baillargeons descend.
