Joseph Revard Lineage
Posted by: Michael J. Jones Date: March 09, 2001 at 08:59:49

Please help determine the lineage of Joseph Revard (Rivard). Joseph was married to Catherine an Osage woman. One source I have found (Red Oak Family Tree )indicates Joseph's parents were Pierre Revard (Rivard) and Marie Demaret, but there is no additional information on this that I have found other than at
which refers to a Joseph Ribet; 36; Canada; Habitant
LH Note: Joseph Rivet claimed land extending from the river St. Ferdinand to the Missouri. He was a son of Pierre Rivet and Marie Demaret, and died in St. Louis in 1789.] LH Notes". These were taken from Louis Houck's 1909 book,
"The Spanish Regime in Missouri". The name spelling is a Spanish translation.

Another source (Ms. Angela C. Robinson) believes Joseph's lineage is (5)Nicolas Rivard and Antoinette Dubord; (4)Claude dit Loranger Rivard and Catherine Roy; (3)Robert dit Loranger Rivard and Madeline Guillet; (2)Pierre Rivard and Jeanne Mullard and (1)Thomas Rivard and Jeanne Chevreau.

This source has Joseph's birthday as Oct 3, 1735 and has a reference to baptism on October 3, 1736 in Champlain (i). The January 24, 1735 census shows Nicolas and Antoinette living in Champlain. There is a reference to an engagement to Illinois of a Joseph Rivard on May 28, 1753 (ii) and a testimoney by a Joseph Rivar before a tribunal investigating Benito Vasquez in June 1787 where he gave his age as 52 and said he had been in Osage country for 34 years.
