Veron, like Marie-Therese, had been born in the raw frontier post of Trois-Rivieres. At age three his father was killed by Iroquois. His mother remarried the noted explorer Medard Chouart. However his new stepfather applied severe corporal punishment to the headstrong Veron - and this caused strife between Veron's mother and his stepfather. The boy was entrusted instead to a guardian at a cost of 20 livres a year. When Veron was older, he was sent to the Jesuits for education and discipline. At the age of 18 he was back living with his mother - the stepfather evidently being away on the fur trade. He had prospered enough by age 28 to marry Marie-Therese, which truly put him in the upper ranks of the small society of Trois Rivieres. Veron was of high enough rank to be one of twenty at Trois Rivieres who met to fix the price of beaver furs that year.
The family greeted its first child only seven months after the marriage was formalized. Veron's mother gave him part of his father's land in 1680, and by 1681 he is recorded as having one servant, seven head of cattle and 45 acres planted. In 1682 he was named as churchwarden Trois-Rivieres, and contributed to the construction of a new church building. In the same year he was made militia captain of the parish.
Having reached the apex of life in the colony, he moved on to bigger things. He became the secretary of Lamothe Cadillac, helping to found the trading post of Detroit. On his return to Montreal he continued serving Cadillac until 1706, when he obtained a notary's commission and became independent. He was also deputy to the king s attorney. He remained an active notary until 1720.
Veron died back at his birthplace of Trois Rivieres in May 1721. Marie survived him by 12 years, dying in Trois Rivieres at the age of 79.
