|Felicite Emma Aime Fortier|
On June 30, 1841, Felicite married Alexander Septime Fortier (b. May 17, 1816). He, too, is descended from Michel Fortier. His father was Louis Edmond Fortier (1784-1849). Edmond was the older brother of Marie Felicite Julie Fortier (1778-1806), Felicite's paternal grandmother. This meant that Francois Gabriel "Valcour" Aime (1797-1867), Septime's wife's father was also his first cousin - and his father-in-law. Septime is my 2nd cousin, 5 times removed.
