Or born Mar 15, 1774.
She had an older sister (born 16 years before her) with her name who died young. Most likely the family wanted to perpetuate her mother's name in a living child.
Her godfather was Antoine Diel dit Guelle.
She was 4 years old in 1778 when the Americans took Kaskaskia. IL.
In early 1788 her family moved across the Mississippi River to Ste. Genevieve to get away from the Americans.
She married Paul DeGuire, July 23, 1792, Ste. Genevieve, Mo.
Her mother died in 1795 and her father died in 1799. In that year, Ste Genevieve had more people than St. Louis and Ste. Genevieve was the biggest trading post around. Since her brothers in 1799 made a contribution to the war chest of the King of Spain, who was an ally of France, it can be assumed that they supported France (Napoleon) and Spain in their War against Britain.
In 1799, after her father died in Feb of that year, the whole family of Caillot-LaChance siblings (except Jean Baptiste) moved to St. Michael's, a new settlement (now in Madison County) named for the French fraternity that their father had been a part of.
In 1814 flooding caused the original site of St. Michael's to be moved to higher ground and the name was changed to Fredericktown.
