St. Michels, deported Acadia > MA, 1755

I have a St. Michel family who was living in Acadia, Nova Scotia, Canada, from the 1600's to 1755, when the Acadian Expulsion occurred: The British deported many French Acadian families to various areas, many to New England. The St. Michels were one such family, any more information would be appreciated!

Francois St. Michel and Madeleine Germon live in France, and they had a son, Jacques St. Michel, who was born in France but married in 1688 to Catherine Commeau, in Acadie.

Their son, Joseph "Michel", was born in 1697 in Port Royal, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, part of Acadia, and he married Marie Joseph Boudreau in 1725. Joseph, however, died on August 14, 1763, in Massachusettes. He must have been deported, and as the treatment of French Catholics in New England wasn't good, he probably changed the spelling of his last name.

Joseph's son was another Joseph Michel, born 1730 in Port Royal, and he married Marie Anne Laure on January 15, 1753, in Port Royal, right before the deportation.

Their son, Joseph Michel III, was born about 1757, in Boston, Massachusettes! However, he was married on June 22, 1778, to Marie Josette Patenaude, in Varennes, Quebec, so the family must have left New England and gone back up to Canada.

Has anyone else been researching this family?
