Marie-Madeleine Charron Dit LaFerriere born November 8, 1714 and died September 29, 1771 in  Saint-Pierre, Quebec, Canada. Burial: 1795, Saint-Pierre, Quebec

Interesting Note: In 1795, it appears that, according to registers' of the parish of Saint-Pierre of the River-of-South, the wife of Joseph Lavergne says Renaud was buried in the cemetery of the parish. One added to the act of burial a note saying that elleétait dead following a ébloulis in the river and that it was remained twenty-four years under the remains. This note is sufficient to guarantee the authenticity of the fact reported by Annual Register.

Mrs Lavergne Had been born Madeleine Charron. We do not know the precise place of this fall (landslide) but we are certain that it was located between the farms belonging to Mr Jean-Guy Proulx and Lucien Samson on the northern row to Saint-Pierre.

Here what we can read in "Annual Register for the year 1771", published in London on October 10: "Thursday, last 29 September, between four and five hours of the afternoon arrived the following catastrophe, namely: On arrival of a young man in a barouche, with the door of the house of a man named Renaud, in the parish of Saint-Pierre of the River-of-South, the Earth opened, absorbed and buried under its weight at the same time quesa etdeux car horses. There was at the house where it was stopped a woman, two girls and a young man; this last by seeing this catastrophe exclaimed "save us!" It had only time to leave, the ground entrouva again; the opening measuring about eighteen feet, which obliged it to move away but the woman was absorbed... la house collapsed and was carried about the distance from bitter and half of the place where it was before etfut buried in the river under an enormous ground mass........Ce upheaval an eminence of at least three bitter broad formed and of a score of feet top and the channel of the river was blocked...."
