Hi Tim:

Thank you very much for the information, that was VERY useful! I had a friend look up some of the names at the University Of Montreal Genealogical database and it confirms everything you suggested including unfortunately that the parents of François Groulx married to Marguerite Vauquière are "unknown". However, based on date of birth and the fact that all the other François Groulx' that I've seen so far from that time period were married to someone else, it's quite possible that he is the son of Jean-Baptiste Groulx and Marie-Thérèse Lorrain born Oct 1, 1752. Its just speculation at this point but it fits the available data. If this is correct then the generations from Arthur Groulx to Jean Grou, the first Groulx to come to Quebec would be:


Arthur Groulx (b. Aug 15, 1846) and Vitaline Aubuchon (b. Dec 15, 1851) married Oct 18, 1868, Ottawa, Ontario.
.
.
François-Xavier Groulx (b. abt 1812) and Elizabeth Rogers (b. abt 1823) married Jan 31, 1842, Rigaud Quebec.
.
.
François Groulx (b. Sept 23, 1778) and Thérèse Lemieux married Jul 22, 1811 in Montreal, Quebec.
.
.
François Groulx (possibly b. Oct 1, 1752) and Marguerite Beaucaire/Veaucaire/Vauquière (b. May 8, 1758) married Feb 6, 1775 in St-Laurent, Quebec.

Jean-Baptiste Grou (b. Sept 28, 1724) and Marie-Thérèse Lorrain/Laurin (Apr 11, 1726) married Jun 17, 1748, Sault-au-Recollet, Quebec.
.
.
Jean Grou (b. Apr 22, 1687) and Marie-Jeanne Cousineau (b. Oct 2, 1691) married Jul 15, 1708, Pointe-aux-Trembles, Quebec.
.

Jean Grou (b. Sep 21, 1644 Rouen, France) and Marie-Anne Goguet (chr. Feb 25, 1658, St-Etienne, France) married Nov 23, 1671, Ville Marie (Montreal) Quebec. They probably came to Quebec about 1665-6. I'm not sure the christening date for Marie-Anne is correct since that made her only 13-14 when she got married to 27 y/o Jean.
