It’s not often that I come across an Acadian/Native American line, but while tracing an ascendancy for Patricia (see Reader Query below) I stumbled across an Acadian Chiasson whose line ended in Kahnawa:ke.
I found that the Charles-Gedeon Giasson who settled in Kahnawa:ke was actually from a pioneer Acadian line – the Chiassons. For those who are unaware, the Chiassons were Acadians and Acadians were deported from their homeland when the British conquered eastern Canada. The Chiassons and others were scattered far-and-wide (including France, the Caribbean, Louisiana) but some also escaped to Quebec (then La Nouvelle France). Here is the line that Charles-Gedeon Giasson descends from.
Pierre Chiasson and Marie Peroche were married in France before 1645.
Jacques-Ignace Giasson married Marie-Angelique Hubert (daughter of Pierre Hubert and Catherine Demers) on April 26th, 1745 in Notre Dame Parish (Montreal).
Charles-Gedeon Giasson married Agathe Macomber (daughter of Gervais Macomber and Charlotte Capitaine Tsinonra) on February 27th, 1832 in St-Francois-Xavier Parish.
