Jacques Pierre Boulogne was probably born about 1680-90.  His parentage remains unproven. I have found no records on him in Kaskaskia & Chartres, Illinois; Only those of his widow and children.

He was married to Catherine Bechet (Bouchet) ( Becquet) about 1718. She appears first in the Illinois records in 1725, as wife of Bellegarde, her second husband.

Catherine Bechet's parentage also remains unproven. However, it appears from the records that Jean Francois Bechet who married Marianne Fafart, bapt. 1711,  on  May 3, 1728 may be her brother. His name has been shown as Bechet, Becquet, Bouchet, as was hers.  His parents were Jean Becquet (dec'd as of May 3, 1728) and wife Jeanne Claire deMontee.  

Catherine Bechet, as wife of Bellegarde, sold Jean Francois Bechet some property in Fort de Chartres, on June 6, 1725. He  witnessed her marriage contract when Catherine married her third husband, Sieur DeLessarts, on Nov 26, 1727.  He was also deputy guardian of her three children when Catherine Bechet died in 1737. Jean Francois Bechet was deceased as of Dec 30, 1738

(First Families of Louisiana -Conrad-Vol 1, P 44-May 28, 1719 Ship "Union" M. Renaud's people includes Francois Bequet)

There was also a Joseph Buchet, chief clerk of the marine, and Judge at Illinois.  I found no connection between this person and Catherine Bechet/Bouchet, except he was the step-father of Touissant Potier, having married his mother Francoise LaBrise.  Touissant Potier was the son in law of Catherine Bechet, having married her daughter Catherine DeLessart.. Joseph Buchet did sign as a witness to some of the documents on this family.

Catherine Bechet married husband #2, Nicholas Buffreau de Bellegarde dit Bonhomme, Royal Notary in Illinois, and officer of the troops, prior to June 25, 1725. in Chartres, Illinois.  They had no children of record.  He was deceased as of November 26, 1727, when she entered into a marriage contract with her third husband, Sieur Onesime Pierre Fortunezay, de Lessart, Sgt. of the troops in Illinois, son of Sieur de Fortunezay, Esquire, Sieur de Lessart, at Fort de Chartres, Illinois Post. They  had one daughter, Marie Catherine DeLessart according to estate records.

Catherine Bechet was deceased as of January 19, 1737, Fort de Chartres, Illinois Post.
