  • Notes 
    • On June 9th, 1758, Cécile Boudreau saw her husband of many years Jean-Baptiste Pitre pass away during the smallpox epidemic in Quebec City. She had buried her son Jean-Baptiste, eight years old, the month before. Four days after her husband's funeral, her daughter Anne Pitre died at the age of 14. On December 21st of that same year, she lost her baby Isidore, who was only 4 years old.

      Cécile Boudreau still had five children with her when she moved to what is now Nicolet, Quebec. This area is said to have been recommended by their missionaries and the Abenakis and became a good place to settle. Near the St. Lawrence, it permitted access to the gulf and Acadia where many hoped to return.

      Cécile would settle there with her family and in 1762, she married her second husband, Pierre Pellerin. Thirty years later, her husband passed away and she became a widow again. According to the Dictionary of Canadian Biographies : She apparently reached the age of 97, still strong, lucid, and courageous. An unfortunate fall then forced her to take to her bed. After 18 days during which she was willing to drink "only a little water and two shots of rum," she died.
