Guillaume was born in 1618 at Seine, Maritime, Normandy, France; the son of Nicolas Thibault and Elisabeth Anceume.  He and Marie-Madeleine would have eight children.  Guillaume died on August 25, 1686 in Chateau-Richer, and though Marie married Francois Fafard on April 08, 1696 at Trois-Rivieres, she was well past child bearing years so her only family was with Guillaume.  She died on March 23, 1707 in Batiscan.
