1716 Burial record for Jeanne Chevalier of Riviere-Ouelle, Quebec

Jeanne Chevalier was born c.1644 in Dieppe located in Normandy, France, the daughter of  Jean Alexander Chevalier and Marguerite Scorban.  Married three times, her parents are named differently in each record; so we also see her father listed as Jacques Chevalier and her mother as Marguerite Scoriman and later LeNormand.

Jeanne and her second husband, Robert Levesque, are our ancestors.
She died in Nov 1644 at the age of 72 and is buried in Riviere-Ouelle.
You can see written in the margin of her burial record a notation that states she was the 'widow of Robert Levesque'.
