Zacharie Cloutier & Xainte Dupont of New France

 Memorials commemorating the 1634 arrival of 
Zacharie & Xainte (Dupont) Cloutier
to New France (now Quebec).

 Our 10th G-grandparent, they are one of the founding families of Beauport.  It was determined that by 1800, Zacharie Cloutier had 10,850 French-Canadian descendants, the most of any Quebec colonist, according to the marriage records studied by the Historical Demography Research Program at the Universite de Montreal.
