MOUCHE (FRANCOISE), younger daughter of Michel Fouan, alias Mouche. Her
mother died early, and she was brought up by her sister Lise, to whom
she was devotedly attached. She had a passion for justice, and when she
had said "that is mine and that is yours," she would have been prepared
to go to the stake in support of her rights. This execration of
injustice gradually led to a change of feeling between the two sisters,
for after the marriage of Lise to Buteau a division of the land should
have been made. Buteau and his wife on various pretexts put off this
division, and it was only on the marriage of Francoise to Jean Macquart
that it was carried out. An entire estrangement between the two families
followed, and constant quarrels took place. After a shameful assault by
Buteau upon Francoise, his wife threw her upon a scythe which lay upon
the ground near by, and the unfortunate girl received injuries from
which she died a few hours later. A sense of loyalty to her family
induced her to conceal the cause of these injuries, which were
attributed to accident. La Terre.
