Elizabeth Casse's second husband was the elder brother of her son-in-law (that is, the husband of her daughter by her first husband), and Elizabeth Casse had children by both her husbands (see the diagram below). So Elisabeth Dumontet's brother-in-law was her step-father, and she was an aunt by marriage to her half-siblings. And the children of Pierre Monet were related to the children of François Monet not only as first cousins, but also as half-uncles and half-aunts. (Genetically, the two sets of children shared 1/4 of their genes, the same degree of relationship as between a grandparent and grandchild, as between half-siblings, or as between a full uncle/aunt and niece/nephew.)
In other words, Elisabeth Dumontet was her own step-aunt! (That's not quite as impressive an accomplishment as being your own grandpa, but still plenty confusing.)

All these people lived in Quebec, by the way (except the elder François Monet, who was born in France, and Elizabeth Casse -- or Corse -- who was born in Deerfield Massachusetts, and taken captive in a French and Indian raid at the age of 8, and had an illegitimate daughter before her first marriage, at age 16; but that's another story). I'm descended from a son of François Monet and Elisabeth (or Marie-Elisabeth) Dumontet.
