About Jean-Baptiste Turpin

Parents were never married.

Enfant naturel de: père: Jean-Baptiste Turpin fils d'Alexandre Turpin et Catherine Beauvais et la mère est Marie-Marguerite Prezeau épouse de Jean-Baptiste Gauthier

Half Brother to Jean Baptiste Turpin and Marguerite Fafard.

The marriage record gives the parents names for Jean Baptiste Turpin as Jean Baptiste Turpin and Marguerite Couseau. It does not say they were married. The PRDH matches her to Marguerite Presseau Presseau-12 who had at least one illegitimate child with Jean Baptiste Turpin and possibly a second illegitimate child Andre Presseau. Further verification to the identification of this Jean Baptiste Turpin is the presence of his brother named Andre Turpin at this marriage. Jean Baptiste Turpin's age of 24 years places his birth date in 1707 which is the same as Marguerite Presseau's son Jean Baptiste Turpin.

Jean Baptiste Gauthier and Marguerite Presseau had another son named Jean Baptiste Gauthier. This Jean Baptiste Turpin was a witness at two of his marriages.
