Two successive periods of mourning hit Marie Crevet. On 15 Jul 1684 she buried in Beauport her second husband, Noel Langlois. "At about 80 years old" and one of the oldest habitants of the country, he died the day before. On 05 Oct 1685, her youngest daughter, Aymee, wife of Noel Langlois Jr., died and was buried in Beauport at the age of 36 years, leaving five children. On 12 Nov 1868, Noel remarried with Genevieve Parent of Beauport. He died 09 Oct 1693 at 42 yrs.
Following the death of her daughter Aymee, Marie Crevet left Beauport to go Baie-St.-Paul with her only living daughter, Catherine. It is there that she died on 22 Nov 1695. The burial act puts her at 92, but in reality she was 86, having been born in 1610. Catherine died the on 14 Jun 1725 at 76 years and her 2nd husband, Pierre Dumont, died 20 Mar 1723.
"The 22nd day of November of the year 1695, Marie Crevet, at the age of about 92 years, has died in the communion of our Holy Mother the Church, after having received the holy sacraments of 'Viatique' and Extreme Unction, and the following day was buried in the cemetery of Baie-St.-Paul, and those who assisted at the burial, the Sieur Rondeau and Jean Lapierre, who declared not being able to read or write." Ref: Robert Caron et sa Famille, by Ivanhoe Caron, priest, p.22.
"On 08 Jul 1656 was buried in the cemetery, Robert Caron, who died at the hospital after having received happily and saintly all the sacraments." The laconic style of this official piece seems to indicate that he died promptly, not being able, however, to receive the sacraments in his full consciousness. Was he a victim of an accident? Did he succumb to a sudden sickness? Impossible to say.
Marriage of Jean Caron, on 21 Aug 1661, fiancé of Marguerite Gagnon, at the marriage contract passed in the house of Jean Cochon, Chateau Richer, assisted by the relatives and friends, her mother and father, her grandfather, Jean Cochon and his wife Jeanne Abraham, her uncles, Mathurin and Pierre Gagnon. Ref: Same as above.
From the marriage of Jean Le Picard with Marie Caron, 1639 - 1660, victim of an Iroquois razzia, daughter of Robert Caron & Marie Crevet, is born Louise, 1659 - 1717, who will become the spouse of Louis Gagne, 1643 - 1698, sieur de La Fresnaye, (received the fief Lafresnaye neighboring the fief Gamache, today belonging to Cap-St.Ignace).
