Charles, I have not connected Noel to his proper family yet, but I do have information on a lot of the Monast, ie Monna family because they originate, like my Parrott family, with one soldier in the Ducros Company, Royal Roussillon Regiment of the Army under General Montcalm during the Seven Years War in Canada and the US. The ancestor's name was Louis Alexandre Monna or Monast (and many more variations). He was born in the village of Aulas, Department du Gard, old Province of Cevennes, France 1729-1735. I could not find his exact date of birth or his baptism in the Church records of St. Martin there. But his parents were Laurent Monna and Marie Giraude Helie or Jelie who married in Aulas on 25 Oct 1728 at St. Martin.
Louis Alexandre Monna and his first cousin, Albert Perot, born 1735, both signed up for the military and entered Montcalm's Army together. You can find a number of references to their unit on the web. Each stood witness for the other when they married in Quebec and both raised large families after settling down as habitants after the war.
Louis married Marie Angelique Viau dit Lesperance on 14 Feb 1757 at St. Joseph de Chambly. They baptised children there and at St. Matthias de Rouville. Their son Louis Alexandre Jr., born 5 Aug 1761, married Marie Catherine Mace dit Sancerre. They had a large family.
Undoubtedly your Noel descends from one of these families, so look in the records of St. Matthias and you may perhaps find his baptism. Good luck.
