About Marie-Jeanne Lejeune (Kagigconiac / Kagijonias), Miq'Maq

I am giving Marie Jeanne's date of birth as abt. 1665 to coincide with the era. Most girls where married as soon as they hit puberty or within in a couple of years (12-16 yrs old) and were usually 5 years younger if not more then their husbands. We know she married Martin Lejeune around 1680 and that his yr. of birth is down as 1661 so based on the times it is safe to assume that she must of been born sometime around 1664 or later.

Marie Jeanne Kagigconiac was an Indian woman, of the canadian Míkmaq (Mi'kmaq or Micmac) tribe. Also part of The Wabanaki Confederacy, as it is known in English, is a historical confederation of five North American Algonquian language speaking Indian tribes.

Mi'kmaw woman. Kagigioniac is the phonetic spelling. Also been spelt: Kagijionas, Kajigoniac, etc. Confirmed at long last as the granddaughter of Henri Membertou, after a long confusion. Sources:

The census of 1686 listed Pierre Lejeune III as being married to Marie Thibodeau and Martin Lejeune as being married to Marie-Jeanne Kagijonias, a member of the Micmac tribe. After Marie-Jeanne's death, Martin married Marie Gaudet, the daughter of Jehan (Jean) Gaudet and Marie-Jeanne Henry.
