Our Ancestor Jean Dumont

Jean Dumont | His Descendants | Database | Other Links

Who is Jean Dumont?

Jean Dumont, the ancestor of many of the Dumont in America and my ancestor, was born in Cognac, in the province of Poitou, France in 1662. Sometimes before 1689, he immigrated to the Nouvelle France and on 6 Jun 1689, he married Marguerite Morin (daughter of André Morin and Marguerite Moreau) in Charlesbourg, Québec. They had 12 children.

Jean Dumont is my seventh great-grandfather via my paternal grandmother, Antoinette Dumont. View my direct connection.

His descendants? What if you are one?

Jean's descendants by now must number in the 500,000 (3^12 by my estimate). Of these, about 4,000 (2^12) are descendants with the last name of Dumont (and variations). If you share this surname, I urge you to join the DUMONT Mailing List

If you are already working on the Dumont surname, I would appreciate your help in adding your data to our database and in developping this Home Page further. If you are aware of any articles written about our ancestor, please let me know so that we can share it with all our cousins. 

In June 1999, there was a Dumont Reunion as part of the Acadian Festival of Madawaska, Maine. Books were to be published later that year.
