- From the English Suppliment to Stephen White's Dictionary of Acadian Families: pg 224 The absence of a dispensation for kindred in the record of the marriage of Joseph Lejeune, grand son of Pierre Lejeune and Marie Thibodeau, to Martine Roy, great-granddaughter of Francois Joseph and Jeanne Lejeune, (Register of Louisbourg 5/11/1754), leads to the conclusion that Jeanne Lejeune was not Pierre Lejeune's sister, then a dispensation for the third to the fourth degree of kindred would have been necessary for this marriage.
