1760s : Red River/St-Boniface, MB
[201] Jean-Baptiste Nolin (c1741 - ????) - from Quebec
[202] Marie Angélique Couvret (???? - ????) - from Manitoba
Children: Marguerite (1780), Angélique (1787), Geneviève (1790), Joseph (c. 1804), Louis, François, Adolphus, Madeleine and Charlotte

Jean-Baptiste Nolin, born in Quebec around 1741 and believed to have went west as a young man.

    It is not known if he was a descendant of Jacques Nolin, a farmer on Île d'Orléans or of Pierre Nolan, an innkeeper in the lower town district of Quebec city. However, given Jean-Baptiste's link to the fur trade, it is more likely that he was a great-grandson of Pierre Nolan whose family became involved in the fur trade very early on. See the entry for Pierre Nolan, in the Quebec section of the website, for further details.

Jean-Baptiste married Marie Angélique Couvret, the daughter of Joseph Couvret and Marie Objibwa, around 1770, most likely in the area of current day St Boniface, Manitoba.
