Adolphe Pierre “Peter” Jeannot (1829-1902)

Below, a biography from: History of Muskegon County, Michigan, 1882, H. R. Page & Co., Chicago (and posted on Find a Grave):

Peter Jeannot was born near Montreal, Canada, in the year 1829. His parents were in very limited circumstances, with a large family of children, and at the age of 16 years, with scanty clothing and only sixteen cents in his pocket, without the knowledge of his parents, but with resolute and determined mind, Peter and some other boys of about the same age left their parental roof for the city of Chicago, at which place he arrived in the fall of 1845. For three days of the time after leaving home he did not taste of food. He had an acquaintance in Chicago with whom he stayed for two weeks. From there he went in the lumber region of Northern Green Bay, remaining there engaged in saw mills until the fall of 1855. From Green Bay he went to Manistee, Michigan. Since 1864 he has been superintendent and general manager for Ferry’s mill at Lake Harbor, and has also been for years postmaster. Mr. Jeannot was married in the month of June, 1859, at Bourbonnaise Grove, Illinois, to Mary Lambert, daughter of Lewis and Mary Lambert, and has had thirteen children, nine of whom are living. The eldest son William is graduating at Notre Dame College, Indiana.

Find a Grave says Mary Lambert was born 04 August 1836 at Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec
and that Peter was born 1829 in Terrebonne, Quebec

Their daughter Marie (your husband's ancestor):
