The young widow, by virtue of a marriage contract signed with her deceased husband, could enjoy during her lifetime “half” of the personal property which had belonged to him. The specification of that “half” was at issue – which was very complicated. There was also the matter of 300 livres for which Guillaume asked for accounts and a foreclosure of some tenant farms which the farmer Francois Lefebvre owed. Faced with this situation and considering the time and cost which a lawsuit would entail, the parties decided it preferable to “settle out of court”. With the consent of his wife, Fournier waived the foreclosure and agreed that Lefebvre would “empty his hands” into those of the Widow Hebert. He also ceded her about 11 arpents of land located on the Grande-Allee, coming from the succession of the late Joseph Hebert, that the widow could possess into perpetuity without other return than the 35 livres which Fournier and his wife retained from the rents of Lefebvre.

The quarter-league of frontage in question had been cut from a league of frontage ceded originally to Louis Hebert by Monsieur de Ventadour.

Guillaume recounted that during harvest time his children noticed the body which was so decomposed that he ordered them to dig a grave to bury it. When the body was in the grave one of his children touched his breeches with a stick and realized that it made a sound. In his waistcoat pocket they found 26 francs, 2 ecus blancs and 4 sols in small coins. The defendant stated that he had distributed the money to those who had worked to dig the grave. This testimony hardly moved the court which ordered him to return the money so that it could be deposited in the clerk’s office until a man named Subtil, a resident of Montreal to whom it belonged, came to get it.

• 1771, Guillaume and Françoise’s mortal remains were exhumed at the church at la-Pointe-a-la-Caille and moved to the cemetery of Saint-Thomas.
• Guillaume may have arrived with a ship’s captain: Father Paul Lejeune, superior of the residence of the Jesuits of Quebec, mentioned in his Relation of 7/16/1637 – “appeared finally a ship which came to dock at Kebec. It was commanded by Monsieur Fournier”. This captain is mentioned again on 8/11 in association with a hunt for Iroquois that had been making trouble – then he is not mentioned again. While Guillaume would have been too young to be a ship’s captain, this could have been a relative. As can be seen from the above history Guillaume was very familiar with boats/ships.
• Guillaume was noted at least a hundred times in the official reports of the Provost and the Council. These cases stretched over thirty years, bringing many proceedings against his wife’s family.
• Ten of Guillaume and Françoise’s 14 children were born in Quebec City. The last four were born in Saint-Thomas-de-la-Pointe-à-la-Caille. Missionary fathers baptized them; three were registered in the Quebec City registry and one in St. Thomas.
• Guillaume Fournier and Françoise Hébert left the largest number of Fournier descendents across all of North America through 6 married sons.
