Before the story begins, I list the players in this form for quick reference. The story portion is a romanticised version of the genealogy. Jean-Francois is pivotal in our genealogy. His is the source of our lineage that extends to this day and age, he had been the only one of Jean-Jacquet's children that had continued the name. He had been the youngest.

These are the children that Jean-Francois and his lovely wife Marie-Catherine Aubert had during their marriage. A beautiful family of fourteen children, listed below.
