Because of the pattern of inheritance, such that her grandsons apparently inherited many parcels of land from the Demont family, it is tempting to suppose that Jeanne was herself a Demont, perhaps a sister of the notary Rodolphe Demont. Also, Demont recorded a great number of documents concerning the family. However, no more substantial evidence of a relationship has yet emerged.
Apparently married previously to a Fisher, daughter Emily Fisher b. 1854.
She made a "reconnaissance" for property subject to the Abbey of Payerne 02 may 1406 (ACV Aa 12/4, no. 627).
Joyce or possibly Rejoice has been taken as the daughter of William Plasse by his first wife. While this is possible, no evidence has yet surfaced that he had such a daughter. The basis for this claim is presumably that Richard Waters declares himself the "son-in-law" of Plasse. But 17th Century usage would give him that relationship through his mother's marriage to William Plasse, even if Joyce is not the daughter of Plasse. See "One Waters Family", 1980, Jeanne Waters Strong.
