Louis married Catherine FERRE in Champlain, a settlement on the north shore of the St. Lawrence just east of Trois-Rivieres.
Louis and Catherine's gggggg grandson, Joseph "Rene" LEFEBVRE apparently had a fleeting relationship with Euphemia SAUNDERS resulting in a daughter Jean being born out of wedlock in Port Elgin on November 24, 1915. Jean was adopted by Daunt and Louisa METCALFE of Greenock Township, Bruce County and they named their chosen daughter Florence Mae METCALFE.
