An Acadian In Caughnawaga: Charles-Gedeon Giasson/Chiasson

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.

Information

BeaubassinI 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.

Guyon Chiasson dit Lavallee married Jeanne Bernard (daughter of  Andre Bernard Chiasson Giasson Lemoyne Marriage Recordand Marie-Andree Guyon) about 1666 in Acadia.

Jean Chiasson married Marie-Anne Lemoyne (daughter of  Jean  Lemoyne and Marie-Anne  Marie-Madeleine Chavigny) in 1697 in Batiscan, Acadia.Chiasson Giasson Hebert Marriage Record - Acadian French-Canadian Genealogy
