Alexis is the son of Francois Bro and Marie Comeau. He was baptized on 1 November 1721. He married Marguerite Bariault before 1747, in Acadie. They are the parents of at least the following who were verified with PRDH:
1) Joseph (abt 1747-1827) md Felicite Boudreau
2) Jean-Baptiste (abt 1751-1794) md Marie-Charlotte Brosseau
3) Charles (abt 1753-1839) md Marguerite Clouatre
4) Marie (abt 1755- ) md Firmin Boudreau
5) Elisabeth-Isabelle (abt 1757-1825) md Laurent Roy
6) Marguerite (abt 1760-1776)
7) Francoise-Rose (abt 1763-1848) md Francois Roy

Alexis & his family were exiled to Massachusetts in 1755.

According to Brother Bernard*:
"The unfortunate Acadians, dispersed in 1755, received an amnesty from Governor Murray in the spring of 1766 and as the news reached them, they undertook to return to Canada. Between 1765 to 1780 the road to Montreal was filled with them.
Alexis Brault and family first went to L'Assumption, Laprairie in May 1767. Alexis then obtained a land grant in L'Acadie for parcels of land on the west bank of the Petite Riviere de Montreal opposite the Roy brothers."

Please note that his burial record is from the parish of Ste-Marguerite-de-Blairfindie, which is now part of L'Acadie.

*The following was provided by Anonymous #50238236:
"I've always understood Br. Bernard stands for Baron Bernard, or Sir Francis Bernard, 1st Baronet, the Governor of Massachusetts. Gov. Bernard signed his papers Br. Bernard and assigned Alexis as among the delegation sent to Gov. Murray of Quebec to inquire about land. Where did you find the source was Brother Bernard?"

Please note that Brother Bernard is no relation to a Baron Bernard of Massachusetts. He was a Catholic priest from Pr. Quebec (no longer living), a relative who did extensive research on our Roy/Brault lines. He had access to the parish records and very kindly shared his work with other family members.
