Jean Michon arrived in Caraquet about 1822 along with other veterans of the War of 1812. His parents were Jean Michon and Marie Dumont of St. Louis de Kamouraska. He’s was a descendant of Abel Michon.  In 1824 he married Venerande Paulin (daughter of Pierre Paulin) and a few years later he received a land grant in Bas-Caraquet. After his death (about 1838) Venerande married Victor Friolet.

Jean and Venerande’s children were:

Dumont, Lagace | Riviere-Ouelle Memorial

Dumont | Riviere Ouelle Pioneer

 

This is the headstone of Anais Clementine Dumont who married Elisee Lagace on May 10th, 1886 at Notre-Dame-de-Liesse church in Riviere Ouelle.

Elisee’s parents were Edouard Lagace and Virginie Lizotte while Clementine was the daughter of Eusebe Dumont and Claire Levesque.  In my database, I have the following siblings for Elisee Lagace: Jean Charles, Augustin, Clement and Elisee.

If I have deciphered the headstone correctly, Clementine died in 1887.
