Pierre is the son of Louise Jeanne (Bellavance) and Joseph Henri Réal Bouvier. He is married to Lachelle Farrar, and has two children.

Pierre’s patrilineal line can be traced to his fourth great-grandfather, Louis-Dieudonne Bouvier (February 21, 1804, La Prairie, Québec – March 16, 1854, Napierville, Québec).

Pierre’s paternal grandfather was Paul Émile Bouvier (the son of Ernest Bouvier and Joséphine Racine). Paul was born in Lacolle, Québec. Ernest was born in Biddeford, Maine, U.S., the son of French-Canadian parents, Joseph Napoléon Bouvier and Mathilda Laverdière. Joséphine was the daughter of Noé Racine and Élise Giroux. Napoléon’s maternal great-grandfather, János Kováczy (or Jean Coache in French), was Hungarian.

Pierre’s paternal grandmother was Lucie Pitre (the daughter of Ferdinand Abel Pitre and Rosalie Martin). Lucie was born in Saint-Alexis-de-Matapédia, Québec. Ferdinand was the son of Abel Pitre and Christine Martin. Rosalie was the daughter of André Martin and Cécile Arsenault.

Pierre’s maternal grandfather was named George Bellavance.

Pierre’s maternal grandmother was Jean Gaudet (the daughter of Edmond Joseph Gaudet and Mildred Julia “Betty” McGrath). Jean was born in Saskatchewan. Edmond was the son of Agneaux Joseph Gaudet and Marguerite Després.

Pierre is a direct descendant of Zacharie Cloutier (c. 1590-1677), a prominent early Québec settler.

    Correct Pierre’s maternal grandmother to Jean Gaudet, and she was the daughter of Edmond Joseph Gaudet and Mildred Julia “Betty” McGrath. Jean was born in Saskatchewan. Edmond was the son of Agneaux Joseph Gaudet and Marguerite Després.

    He also has remote Irish and Portuguese ancestry.

    Remark: Mildred Julia (McGrath) is too elusive to search aside from her 1926 census record. But, her surname appears to be of Irish origin.
