Pierre Guimont, major, son of the late Francois Guimont and of Marie Angelique Simonneau married 7 January 1807, St. Ours Marie Reine Taillon, minor daughter of Michel Taillon and Marie Boudriau-Labonte


Translation of the complete marriage record in the St-Ours parish registers:


The 7 of January 1807 after the publication of three banns of marriage made at the parochial mass between Pierre Guimon, former _voyageur_, currently farmer in this parish, major, son of the late Francois Guimon and of Marie Angelique Simono in legitimate marriage, and Marie Reine Taillon, minor daughter of Michel Taillon, farmer in this parish, and of Marie Boudrio, also in legitimate marriage. The abovesaid Pierre Guimon having presented me a certificate of liberty signed by Messire Cherrier, priest, vicar general of the diocese, dated 31 December 1806, I the undersigned priest cure, not having discovered any impediment between the abovesaid parties, have given them the nuptial benediction after having received their mutual consent and with the approbation of the parents of the bride. In presence of Joseph Arcan, friend of the groom and acting as his father; of Michel Taillon father of the bride; of Joseph Taillon her brother, and of several others, who with the two spouses have declared not to know how to sign. Olivier Durocher has signed with us.

NOTE: The parish registers were checked. No prior references to either of these families, and no baptisms for this couple through the year 1811, were found at St-Ours.


NOTE: If this is the correct lineage, this is a Revolutionary line, DAR eligible, through Michel Taillon/Tyon.
