Pierre Gareman and his son, Charles, were captured by the Iroquois Oneiouts at Cap-Rouge 10 Jun 1653. Pierre probably died that same year. Was he killed in captivity or while trying to escape? His son, Charles, only 10 years old at the time, was raised by the Iroquois. He was a ` habitant du bourg d`Oneiout, pays d`en haut`. His Iroquois name was GANNONCHIASE. He married Marie GONNENTENNE, an Iroquois Oneiout, about 1677 at Quebec. She died 6 Sep 1683 `a pensionnaire chez les Ursulines` (Jette, pg. 464)

Florence Gareman was also captured by the Iroquois, according to Drouin p. 151
However, it appears that she was released or escaped, as she had eleven children between 1643 and 1664. She was at least 57 years old when dhe died at Sillery between 1686 and 1689. (Jette, p. 136)

Pierre Gareman known as LePicard
Pierre Gareman, originating in Bagneux, in the Soissons district, in Picardy. He marries towards 1628, in Bagneux, Madeleine Charlot, therefore originating in Bayeux, in Picardy.
The couple is in New-France with two of their children, before the birth of a third into 1639, in Quebec.
The elder one, Florence Gareman, born towards 1629, became wife on September 3 1641, of the ancestor François Boucher, who came with his father Marine Butcher, originating in St-Jean de Mortagne, Perche.
A son and a girl of Florence Gareman and François Boucher bind us with the latter.
The son, Denis Boucher, born on April 4 1660, married on November 21 1689, Jeanne Miville, born in 1671, girl of François Miville, known as LeSuisse, and of Marie Langlois.
Then the girl, Marie-Francoise Boucher, born in 1664, married on July 23 1686 at Castle-Richer, Nicolas Thibault, born into 1663, son of the ancestors, Guillaume Thibault and of Marie-madeleine LeFrançois.
Second Gareman, to come to News-France, with her parents, is Nicole Gareman, born towards 1631. She marries on September 14 1645, the ancestor Rene Mezeray, known as Nopces, born towards 1620, in Normandy and widower of Helene Chatel. Three children of the Mezeray/Gareman couple weave other links for us.
The first child, a girl, Genevieve Mezeray, born in 1648, becomes the wife in 1661, of the ancestor Étienne LeTellier, born towards 1636, at Our-Lady of Clowns, in évêché of Rouen, in Normandy.
The second, a son, baptized Jean Mezeray, into 1650, married into 1673, Marie-madeleine Masse', born into 1655, widow of Rene Duverger, girl of the ancestor Pierre Massé and Marie Pinel DelaChenaie.
The third, Marie-madeleine Mezeray, born towards 1660,became wife in 1673, of the ancestor Abraham Méthot, born towards 1643, originating in St-Germain of the Bridge-Audemer, close to Rouen, in Normandy.
Finally, Marguerite Gareman, who was born in News-France, 1639, became wife into 1654, to the ancestor Mathurin Tru, born towards 1620, in Merpins, in évêché Saintes, in Angoumois. Two Tru girls, weave us links.
Ursule Tru, born in 1658, wife in 1671, Antoine Bisson, originating in Countered, of évêché LeMans in Maine, born towards 1641, come with his parents, the ancestor Gervais Bisson, said St-Côme and of Marie Lereau.
Then the second, Anne Tru, born in 1664, became wife on June 29 1679, of the ancestor of Valin, Nicolas, born towards 1646, originating in St-Sulpice, in évêché of Amiens, in Picardy.
The grandmother, Madeleine Charlot died before January 29 1652, in Quebec.
As to the ancestor, Pierre Gareman, known as LePicard, he is taken by Iroquois Onéiouts at Cape-Rouge, with his son Charles, June 13 1653. And, it is not any more question of them thereafter, one can imagine the worst for them.
