      On Sunday, October 6, 1754, parents and friends were reunited at Pierre Parent's home, father of Marguerite, for addressing the contract of marriage of the future spouses. As no lawyer was residing in Conception at that time, the only recourse was to the Office of Joseph Claveau, Lieutenant of the Militia in the area. He, being present and more or less educated, wrote the contract in his own way, mentioning the matrimonial conditions of the future spouses along with the witnesses.

      The original contract was registered with the tribunal records of the Office of Lawyer Loiseau of Boucherville, Quebec on January 7, 1755. The lawyer receiving this original contract, after being registered had authority under power of attorney to afterwards reproduce copies. The marriage contract is reproduced as follows:
