The act of marriage rehabilitation for Anne Roy, for St-Jean-Baptiste Parish tells us that Marie Aubois was of Mi'kmaq ancestry.

Jean Roy (Jean LeRoy, also known as Laliberté, also known as Laliberté) was born at St-Malo (France) in 1648. He arrived in Acadia abt. 1671 and was listed at Cap Sable on the 1686 census.

In 1684 he married Marie Aubois, an Amerindian woman and together they had nine children.

Cap-Sable 1693 Census: Christine 35 [sic], Port-Royal 1698 Marie 33; 1701 36.

Note: The above record has been transcribed to read "Marie Mikmak" however the original record in French read "Marie Sauvagesse" and in 1686 when Marie Aubois married Jean Roy dit Laliberté the Mi'maw were not the only Native tribes living in Nova Scotia the time so we do not know with certitude what tribe she may have belonged to..
