“The area, first called after Cape Tourmente, is one of the first places of New France to be colonized. In 1628, it was destroyed by the Kirke Brothers but it became an agricultural centre again after 1668 when François de Laval bought land around the cape to establish farms to feed his Seminary of Quebec. A few years later, the Saint-Joachim Parish was founded, and the place became known by the parish name.” Wikipedia
Still searching for record, however, enough additional records exist to confirm marriage to Marcelline (AKA: Marcella – Anglicized version of name) Sigouin.
Marriage Date: ~1876 (estimate based on 1881 Census, first child Levina is 3 years old).
