[OH-kwanh]

ACADIA

Two sisters, Michelle, born in c1621, and Jeanne, baptized at Ste.-Marguerite, La Rochelle, in November 1630, daughters of Martin Aucoin, menuisier or carpenter, and his first wife Barbe Minguet, came to Acadia with their husbands in the 1640s.  They helped create two of the most prominent families in Acadia:

Michelle came to the colony with husband Michel Boudrot, whom she had married in c1641, and followed him to Port-Royal, where he became one of the most prominent residents of the Acadian capital.  Michelle gave him 11 children, including seven sons who created families of their own.  She became a widow in the late 1680s.  She died at Port-Royal in December 1706, age 85 (though the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 95). 

Meanwhile, Michelle's younger sister Jeanne married François Girouard dit Lavaranne of La Chaussée in c1647 and followed him to Port-Royal.  She gave him five children, including two sons who created families of their own.  (Personal note:  one of Jeanne's daughters, Marie-Madeleine Girouard, married the author's ancestor, Thomas Cormier, who, along with brother-in-law Germain Girouard, helped pioneer the settlement at Chignecto in the early 1670s.)  Jeanne died at Annapolis Royal, formerly Port-Royal, in April 1718, in her late 80s

~

Martin Aucoin, once thought to be the younger half-brother of the Aucoin sisters but evidently from a different family, was born in France in c1651 and came to Port-Royal soon after the first Acadian census was taken in 1671.  Martin married Marie, daughter of Denis Gaudet and Martine Gauthier, at Port-Royal in c1673.  Soon after their marriage, they moved to Chignecto and then to the Minas Basin.  They had 19 children, including 10 sons, nine of whom created families of their own.  Five of their daughters married into the Guérin, Gautrot, Thériot, Thibodeau, and Bourg families.  Marie was around 16 at the time of her marriage, had her first child the following year, and gave birth to her 19th child at age 50.  Martin died at Grand-Pré in May 1711, age 60.  The priest noted in Martin's burial record: "mort subitement le jour de l'Ascension au retour de la messe, ayant toujours vécu fort chrétiennement et avec édification"--he died suddenly on Ascension Day returning from mass, having always lived a very Christian and edifying life.

Oldest son Martin, fils, born at Port-Royal in c1674, married Catherine, daughter of Germain Thériot and Andrée Brun, probably at Minas in c1698.  They had eight children, including three sons who married into the Boudrot, LeBlanc, and Le Prince families.  Their daughters married into the Boudrot, Comeau, Henry, Duon, and Melanson families. 

Michel, born probably at Chignecto in c1677, married Jeanne, daughter of Martin Bourg and Marie Potet, probably at Minas in c1699.  They had seven children, including four sons who married into the Amireau, Henry, Michel, and LeBlanc families.  Their daughters married into the Dugas and Dupuis families.  

Alexis, called Lexy, born at Chignecto in c1684, twin of Augustin, who died young, married Anne-Marie, called Marie, another daughter of Martin Bourg and Marie Potet, probably at Minas in c1707.  They had 13 children, including 10 sons who married into the Breau, Amireau, Blanchard, Hébert, Girouard, Trahan, Duon, Lacroix, and Laidez families.  Their daughter married into the Breau family.  Alexis resettled at Cobeguit, escaped to Île St.-Jean at the beginning of Le Grand Dérangement, was deported to France in late 1758, survived the crossing that killed hundreds of his fellow Acadians, and died at Boulogne-sur-Mer, Artois, on Christmas Day 1759; he was 75 years old. 

Pierre, born probably at Minas in c1689, married first to Marie, daughter of Pierre Breau and Marie-Josèphe Bourgeois, at Minas in c1716, then to Catherine, daughter of Jean Comeau le jeune and Catherine Babin, at Grand Pré in c1718.  

René, born at Minas in c1690, married Madeleine, yet another daughter of Martin Bourg and Marie Potet, in c1712, and moved on to Chignecto by the 1750s.  They had nine children, including two sons who married into the Dupuis and Thériot families.  Their daughters married into the Landry, LeBlanc, Maillet, Gaudet, Bourgeois, and Comeau families.  Some of his descendants moved west into valley of the Petitcoudiac, while others moved to Île St.-Jean, today's Prince Edward Island.  

Antoine, born at Minas in c1694, married Anne, another daughter of Pierre Breau and Marie-Josèphe Bourgeois, at Grand-Pré in c1713.  They had four children, including two sons who married into the Thibodeau, Daigre, and Hébert families.  Their daughter married into the Landry family.  Antoine and Anne moved from Grand-Pré to nearby Pigiguit in the 1740s.  By the early 1750s, they had moved on either to Île St.-Jean or to Île Royale, now Cape Breton Island.  

Joseph, born at Minas in c1698, married Anne, daughter of Jean-Charles Trahan and Marie Boudrot, probably at Minas in c1720.  

Jean, birth place and date unrecorded, but it probably was at Minas, married Marguerite, daughter of Claude Pitre and Marie Comeau, probably at Minas in c1722.  By the 1750s, many of their descendants had moved on to Rivière du Nord-Est, St.-Louis, and Rivière-des-Blonds on Île St.-Jean probably to stay clear of the British authorities.  

Youngest son Charles, also born at Minas, married Marie or Anne-Marie, daughter of Martin Dupuis and Marie Landry, at Grand-Pré in c1726.  

[For more of this family in pre- and post-disperal Acadia and Canada, see Book Three]

By 1755, descendants of Martin Aucoin, père could be found at Rivière-aux-Canards, Grand-Pré, Pigiguit, and Cobeguit in the Minas Basin; Chignecto; Petitcoudiac in the trois-rivières area; and on Île St.-Jean.  

LE GRAND DÉRANGEMENT

[For the family's travails during the Great Upheaval, see Book Six]

LOUISIANA:  RIVER SETTLEMENTS

With one exception, Acadian Aucoins did not reach Louisiana until 1785.  Marie-Josèphe, daughter of Paul Aucoin and Marie LeBlanc, married Joseph, son of fellow Acadian Antoine Breaux, at St.-Jacques on the Acadian Coast in January 1777.  The year of her arrival in the colony is anyone's guess.  

~

Only two families--the Héberts and Trahans--placed more passengers than the Aucoins on the Seven Ships that left France for Louisiana in 1785.  Over 90 Aucoins can be found on the passenger lists of five of the seven vessels.  After they reached New Orleans, some of them chose to go to river communities above and below the city:

Joseph Aucoin, age 37, crossed on Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in July.  With him were wife Élisabeth Henry, age 37, and five children--Élisabeth- or Isabelle-Jeanne, age 12, Joseph-Jean, age 8, François-Toussaint, age 6, Marie-Modeste, age 4, and Victoire-Claire, age 3.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.  Joseph and Élisabeth had more children in Louisiana and by the early 1790s had moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

.

Élisabeth or Isabelle Aucoin, age 50, crossed on L'Amitié with husband Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc, age 44, and niece Marie-Marguerite Semer, age 19.  Marie-Marguerite married to a Frenchman at New Orleans in January and remained in the city.  Élisabeth and Jean-Baptiste may have followed some of their fellow passengers to Nueva Gálvez, but they did not remain there.  Élisabeth remarried to fellow Acadian and widower Pierre Richard at Opelousas in August 1797 and died near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in October 1825, in her early 90s. 

Another Joseph Aucoin, age 33, also crossed on L'Amitié.  He was a sailor and came to the colony alone, so it made sense that he would settle at or near New Orleans.  

.

Most of the Aucoins who came to Louisiana crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which left St.-Malo in August 1785 and reached New Orleans in December.  Fifty-three Aucoins in all, they were one of the largest single Acadian family groups to come to the colony (second only to the Landrys from Maryland in 1766).  One Aucoin family went to the Opelousas District to join relatives there, but the others--eight families, a widower, a widow, three wives, and a bachelor--chose to settle in the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, now Thompson's Creek, north of Baton Rouge.  After a series of hurricanes devastated the community in the early 1790s, a few of the bayou Acadians, including Aucoins, moved on to other river communities, but most of them, especially Aucoins, joined their siblings and cousins from France on upper Bayou Lafourche:  

Madeleine Aucoin, age 69, widow of Charles Trahan, crossed with two unmarried daughters who probably remained unmarried and moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche.  . 

Jean-Baptiste Aucoin, age 66, crossed with wife Marguerite Terriot, age 57, and five children--Marie, age 27, Jean-Baptiste, fils, age 21, Rose-Madeleine, age 19, Rose-Anastasie, age 17, and Pierre-Firmin, age 11.  Jean-Baptiste, père and Marguerite were too old to have more children in the colony.  One of their sons moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, and the other one remained on the river.  Daughters Marie and Rose-Anastasie married into the Aucoin and Guidry families and also remained on the river.  One wonders what happened to daughter Rose-Madeleine.  Did she survive the crossing? 

Joseph Aucoin l'aîné, age 64, a native of Cobeguit, who may have been Alexis's brother, crossed with second wife Anne Hébert, age 48, and six children--Anne-Marie, age 21, François-Malo, age 15, Gabriel-Guillaume, age 13, Marie-Madeleine, age 11, Françoise-Victoire, age 8, and infant Hyacinthe-Laurent.  Joseph and Anne were too old to have more children in the colony.  Joseph died probably at Bayou des Écores, and Anne moved with her children to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughters married into the Bourg, Gautreaux, and Hébert families.  Their sons settled along the Lafourche.  Two of Joseph and Anne's children, Françoise-Victoire and Hyacinthe-Laurent, were among the last of the Acadian immigrants in Louisiana to join our ancestors. 

Michel Aucoin, age 53, crossed with wife Élisabeth Hébert, age 45, and 10 children--Jean-Charles, age 23, Marie-Josèphe, age 21, Anne-Théodose, age 19, Grégoire-Alexis, age 18, Michel-Pierre, age 16, Pierre-Paul, age 14, Élisabeth or Isabelle, age 13, François-Étienne, age 11, Florianne-Marguerite, age 4, and Constant-Jean-Baptiste, age 2.  Michel and Élisabeth had no more children in Louisiana.  They moved to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Michel died in the early 1790s.  Two of their daughters married into the Barrilleaux, Pedeau, and Potier families.  Daughter Anne-Théodose died not marry.  If he survived the crossing from France, youngest son Constant-Jean-Baptiste probably died in childhood, but his older brothers created families on Bayou Lafourche.    

Simon Aucoin, age 53, crossed with wife Marie-Geneviève Terriot, age 50, and four daughters--Perpétué, age 26, Marguerite-Geneviève, age 17, Anne-Olive, age 14, and Rose-Félicité, age 12.  Simon and Marie-Geneviève had no more children in Louisiana.  Three of their daughters married into the Aucoin, Landry, and Richard families.  The oldest one moved to nearby St.-Gabriel, and the younger ones followed Simon and Marie-Geneviève to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

Charles Aucoin, age 50, crossed with wife Madeleine Trahan, age 48, unmarried son Pierre, age 30, Françoise Trahan, age 38, widow of Pascal Hébert and Madeleine's sister, and niece Marie Daigle, age 24.  Charles and Madeleine had no more children in Louisiana.  Pierre married twice and remained on the river.  

Alexandre Aucoin, age 45, brother of Olivier, Charles, and Félicité, who had crossed on an earlier ship, came to Louisiana with wife Rosalie Terriot, age 45, and three children--Marie-Élisabeth, age 20, Marie-Jeanne, age 8, and Mathurin, age 4.  They probably remained on the river.  Their daughters married into the Bourg and Raoul families.  One of them settled on Bayou Lafourche, where their relatives had settled.  

Marguerite-Geneviève Aucoin, age 45, crossed with husband Simon Comeau, age 44, and eight children.  They moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Marguerite-Geneviève died in the early 1790s.  Strangely, her husband did not remarry. 

Marie-Madeleine Aucoin, age 44, crossed with husband Joseph Hébert, age 45, and two daughters.  They probably remained on the river. 

Joseph l'aîné's nephew, Joseph Aucoin le jeune, age 41, a widower, and also a native of Cobeguit, crossed with four sons--Alexis-Joseph, age 20, Fabien-Isaac, age 15, Mathurin-Jean, age 12, and Joseph-Marie, age 10--and 40-year-old Marie-Osite Breau, probably a kinswoman.  Joseph le jeune remarried at Bayou des Écores and may have accompanied his sons to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

Jean-Baptiste Aucoin, age 27, crossed with wife Marie Forest, age 20, and their infant daughter Marie-Jeanne.  Jean-Baptiste and Marie had more daughters at Bayou des Écores before moving on to the Opelousas District. 

Alexis Aucoin, age unrecorded, crossed alone, perhaps as a stowaway, and may have died at Bayou des Écores.

Charles Aucoin, age unrecorded, also crossed alone, perhaps as a stowaway, and may have remained on the river.  

.

After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, two Aucoins remained on the river, where they created vigorous lines in what became Iberville, East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Ascension, and St. James parishes:  

Descendants of Pierre AUCOIN (c1755-1792; Martin, Pierre)

Pierre, son of Charles Aucoin and Madeleine Trahan, born probably at Rivière-aux-Canards in c1755, followed his parents into the exile first to Virginia in 1755 and then to England the following year.  In May 1763, when Pierre was 8 years old, the family was repatriated to France and settled at Plouer, near St.-Malo.  He came to Louisiana with his parents and two female relatives aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785; he was 30 years old and still a bachelor.  He married Marie-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre Hébert and his second wife Susanne Pitre, at New Orleans in January 1786, soon after they reached Louisiana on the same ship.  They may have followed his parents to Bayou des Écores and even lived briefly in the Attakapas District before settling at St.-Gabriel, on the river below Baton Rouge, where he remarried to Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Claude Guidry, in October 1788.  His second wife also had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel.  Pierre died at St.-Gabriel in August 1792; he was only 37 years old.  His descendants settled in what became Iberville and West Baton Rouge parishes. 

1

Older son François, by his father's second wife, born at St.-Gabriel in October 1789, married Marie Rose, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Richard and Cécile Dupuis and widow of Bernard Comeaux, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1818.  Their son Trasimond François was born near St. Gabriel in March 1821, Sylvanie in c1822, François Philosin in October 1823, Valsentin or Valentin in March 1825 but died at age 9 in June 1834, Pierre Telesphore, called Telesphore, was born in March 1829, an infant son, name unrecorded, died at birth in November 1831, and Valmond was born in August 1835.  François, père died near St. Gabriel in January 1844; the priest who recorded his burial said that François was 50 years old when he died, but he was 54.  His sons settled in West Baton Rouge and Iberville parishes.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Iberville Parish counted a single slave--a 52-year-old black female--on Widow F. Aucoin's farm; this may have been Francois's widow, Marie Rose Richard

1a

Trasimond married Solidaine or Solidenne, daughter of fellow Acadians Maximilien LeBlanc and Hélène Allain, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in October 1844.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Philippe Alcide, called Alcide, was born in August 1845 but died at age 10 months in June 1846, Joseph Alcée was born in December 1847, and Déozan near Brusly in June 1851.  Trasimond remarried to Marie Bardy, daughter of Pierre Beronne or Peyronne and Marie Ambloy of Savoie, France, at the St. Gabriel church in April 1856.  Their son Arthur was born near St. Gabriel in July 1857.

1b

Sylvanie married Émilie, daughter of French Creole Félix Bernard du Montier, fils and Joséphine Seguin, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1852.  Their son François Pierre or Franklin Pierce was born near Brusly in July 1853 but died at age 1 1/2 in February 1855, and Jean Baptiste Rodolphe was born in April 1856 but died at age 3 in June 1859.  During the War of 1861-65, Sylvanie served in Company A of the 3rd Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Iberville Parish, which fought in Missouri, Arkansas, and Mississippi.  Sylvanie died in Iberville Parish in January 1868; he was only 46 years old. 

1c

Telesphore married cousin Élodie, daughter of fellow Acadians Valentin Hébert and Euphrosine Labauve, at the Brusly, church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1853; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  They settled near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish.  Their son Joseph Ulysses was born in October 1854.  During the War of 1861-65, Telesphore served in Company A of the 3rd Regiment Louisiana Infantry with his brother Sylvanie.

1d

Valmond married Anglo-American Libbie Stockwell.  Their son James Lee was born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in July 1865, and William Randolph in January 1867.

2

Younger son Pierre-Élie, called Élie, born at St.-Gabriel in February 1791, married Martine, daughter of fellow Acadians Honoré Braud and Élisabeth LeBlanc and widow of Jean Charles Hébert, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in October 1819.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Jean Baptiste Rosémond was born in September 1820.  Their daughter married into the Betancourt family.  Élie died probably in West Baton Rouge Parish in December 1835; the St. Gabriel priest who recorded his burial said that Élie was 42 years old when he died, but he was 44.  His only son settled in West Baton Rouge Parish and also died young. 

Jean Baptiste Rosémond married Ernestine, daughter of fellow Acadian Louis Robichaux his Creole wife Modeste Prospere of West Baton Rouge Parish, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in October 1843.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Pierre Balthazar was born near Brusly in February 1848, Jean Baptiste Rosémond, fils, a twin, died 8 days after his birth in November 1853, and Élie Benjamin was born in September 1857.  Jean Baptiste Rosémond died near Brusly in October 1858; the priest who recorded his burial said that Rosémond, as he called him, died at "age 32 years," but he was 38. 

Descendants of Pierre-Firmin AUCOIN (1774-?; Martin, ?)

Pierre-Firmin, third and youngest son of Jean-Baptiste Aucoin and Marguerite Terriot, born at Plouër, France, near St.-Malo, in May 1774, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, and followed them to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  When the Acadians abandoned the settlement in the early 1790s, Pierre-Firmin's older brother Jean-Baptiste, fils followed the majority of their cousins to upper Bayou Lafourche, but Pierre-Firmin moved, instead, to nearby Baton Rouge, where he married Doncella-Pélagie, called Pélagie, daughter of fellow Acadians Olivier Daigre and Marie LeBlanc of Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in August 1796.  They lived for a time at St.-Jacques, on the river below Baton Rouge.  Their daughters married Tullier brothers whose mother was a Daigre.  Pierre Firmin may have remarried to Marguerite Venoy, widow of A. Vignon of Arkansas, at Baton Rouge in July 1812.  His descendants settled at Baton Rouge and in Iberville and St. James parishes. 

1

Older son Florestin, born at St.-Jacques in January 1798, married Élisabeth, daughter of André Verdau, Verdiou, Verdon, or Verdou and Marie Venaille, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in September 1820.  Their son Florentin, fils was born near Baton Rouge in December 1821, a child, name, age, and gender unrecorded, who may have been a son, died in July 1823, Pierre Apollinaire, called Apollinaire, was born in July 1824, Florestin Albert or Albert Florestin, called Florestin, in June 1826, Simon Adolphe or Adolphe Simon, in October 1828, and Célestin Jules or Jules Célestin in April 1833.  Their daughters married into the Comeaux, Edmonston, Martinez, and Picou families.  Florestin, père died near Baton Rouge in December 1847; he was 49 years old.  In November 1850, the federal census in East Baton Rouge Parish counted a single slave--a 30-year-old black female--in Elizabeth Aucoin's household in the parish's Tenth Ward; this was Florestin's widow, Élisabeth Verdau

1a

Florestin Albert married Julie Zéolide, daughter of fellow Acadians Rémi Doiron and Julie Richard, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in March 1851.  Their son Telesphore was born near Baton Rouge in December 1851, Abner Sotter in April 1853, and Alphonse Odey in November 1858.  During the War of 1861-65, Florestin served in Company A of the 9th Battalion Louisiana Infantry, raised in East Baton Rouge Parish, which fought in Louisiana and Mississippi.  Perhaps because of his age and maturity, Florestin enlisted as a second corporal in the spring of 1862 and was elected a junior second lieutenant in August.  He was promoted to second lieutenant in September, and this was the rank he held during the Siege of Port Hudson in the spring and summer of 1863.  According to his burial record, Florestin was "killed in siege of Port Hudson," but his Confederate service record does not reveal the exact date of his death; he would have been 37 years old.  He probably was buried on the battlefield, and, after the war, his family disinterred his remains and buried them in Highland Cemetery, Baton Rouge, in November 1865. 

1b

Adolphe Simon married Mary Margaret, daughter of Anglo-American Michael Adam or Adams and Marguerite Trager, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in June 1853.  Their son Julius Adolphe was born near Baton Rouge in November 1859, William Madison in October 1865, Michel Buffington in April 1867, and Joseph Lawrence in January 1869.  In August 1860, the federal census taker in East Baton Rouge Parish counted a single slave-a 14-year-old black female--in Adolphe Aucoin's household.  During the War of 1861-65, A. S., as the Confederate records call him, served in Company A of the 9th Battalion Louisiana Infantry with his brothers Florestin and Jules Célestin.  Like Jules Célestin, he, too, was conscripted into Confederate service and survived the war.

1c

Apollinaire married Melissa Catherine, daughter of Joseph Bouillion and his Acadian wife Marcelline Babin, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1856.  Their son John W. Octave was born near Baton Rouge in September 1862, Albert Florestin near Gonzales, Ascension Parish, in July 1864, John Gardner in December 1867, and James Maples near Baton Rouge in December 1867.

1d

Jules Célestin married Elizabeth Gordon, daughter of John Cunningham and Ellen Humphreys, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1858.  Their son Alphonse Godrey was born near Baton Rouge in April 1860, Jules Adolphe in July 1862, and Forest Albert in June 1865.  During the War of 1861-65, Jules Célestin served in Company A of the 9th Battalion Louisiana Infantry with his older brothers Florestin and Adolphe Simon.  Like Adolphe Simon, he, too, was conscripted into Confederate service and probably survived the war.  

2

Younger son Pierre, fils, born near Baton Rouge in June 1802, married Élisabeth, daughter of Michel Gareuil, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in May 1825.  Their son Derosin, a twin, was born near St. Gabriel in February 1826 but died at age 2 1/2 in November 1828, and Jean Baptiste was born in October 1828.  Their daughter married into the Hébert family.  Pierre, fils died in Iberville Parish in June 1831; he was only 29 years old.

Mathurin AUCOIN (c1781-?; Martin, Charles)

Mathurin, probably the youngest son of Alexandre Aucoin and Rosalie Terriot, born in France in c1781, came to Louisiana with his parents and sisters aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, and followed them to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  He may have died young there, if he survived the crossing.  

~

Other AUCOINSs on the River

Area church records make it difficult to link some Aucoins on the river to known lines of the family there:  

Jean-Jacques, son of Jean Aucoin and Catherine _____, married Rose Aucoin.  Their son Hippolyte was baptized at Baton Rouge, age 9 months, in April 1802.  

Céleste Aucoin, probably not his actual name, married Susanne Fero.  Their son Robert was born in St. James Parish in April 1821.  Was he even an Aucoin?

In September 1850, the federal census taker in Orleans Parish counted 2 slaves--a 20-year-old black female and an 8-year-old black males--in Robt. Aucoin's household in the Second Ward of the Second Municipality of the city of New Orleans.  One wonders if Robert was that rarest of Aucoins in Louisiana--a non-Acadian. 

LOUISIANA:  LAFOURCHE VALLEY SETTLEMENTS

Many of the Aucoins who came to Louisiana from France in 1785 chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche:

Jean-Baptiste Aucoin, age 71, crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  With him were wife Jeanne-Anne Terriot, age 60, and their 19-year-old daughter, Anne-Félicité.  Jean-Baptiste died at Lafourche by January 1788, when his wife was listed in the census there as a widow.  Anne-Félicité married Pierre-Vincent Monte, a Frenchman from Belle-Île-en-Mer, Brittany, whose mother was an Acadian, at Lafourche in March 1788.  

Élisabeth or Isabelle Aucoin, age 37, Jean-Baptiste's daughter, crossed on La Bergère with husband Tranquille Pitre of Cobeguit, age 36, and three children, ages 3, 1, and newborn.  Élisabeth died in Assumption Parish in February 1818, age about 70. 

Olivier Aucoin, age 59, brother of Alexandre, Charles, and Félicité, crossed on La Bergère with second wife Cécile Richard, age 48, and three daughters--Nathalie-Marie, age 18, Marguerite-Geneviève, age 16, and Marie-Cécile, age 14.  Olivier and Cécile had no more children in Louisiana.  Olivier died in Assumption Parish in August 1813; he was 86 years old.  His daughters married into the Blanchard, Hébert, and Templet families.  

Antoine Aucoin, age 55, a widower, crossed on La Bergère with two sons--Pierre-Joseph-Antoine, age 20, and Louis-Jean, age 15.  Antoine did not remarry. 

Marguerite-Josèphe Hébert, age 55, widow of Alexandre Bourg, crossed on La Bergère with daughter Marguerite Bourg, age 37, widow of Firmin Aucoin, and Marguerite's 6-year-old son Firmin-Louis Aucoin.  Marguerite remarried to Ambroise Garidel at Lafourche in January 1788.  Firmin-Louis survived childhood, married, and settled on the Lafourche. 

Fabien Aucoin, age 38, crossed on La Bergère with wife Marguerite Dupuis, age 34.  They brought no children with them and remained childless in Louisiana. 

Charles Aucoin, age 38, and his sister Félicité, age 35, siblings of Olivier and Alexandre, were still unmarried when they came to Louisiana on La Bergère.  Félicité married cousin Pierre-Joseph-Antoine, son of Antoine Aucoin, at Lafourche in July 1786; Pierre also had crossed on La Bergère and was 16 years younger than Félicité.  Charles also married at Lafourche.  

Marie Aucoin, age 32, daughter of Olivier, crossed on La Bergère with husband Olivier Terriot, age 30, one of the organizers of the Seven Ships venture, and four children, ages 20 to newborn.  They settled in what became Ascension Parish, where Marie died a widow in March 1817, in her early 60s. 

Marie-Anastasie, called Anastasie, Aucoin, age 26, crossed on La Bergère alone.  Her husband, Joseph Terriot, age 27, came on a later vessel, La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships.  They had a daughter on the upper bayou.  Marie-Anastasie remarried to fellow Acadian exile from France Charles-Pierre-Marc, son of Charles Blanchard and widower of Jeanne Girouard, at Assumption in February 1802.  She died in Assumption Parish in November 1832, age 73.  

Pierre Aucoin, age unrecorded, crossed alone on La Bergère and may have remained at Lafourche.  

.

Michel Aucoin, age 30, crossed on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in September.  With him was wife Marie-Rosalie De La Forestrie, age 30, and two daughters--Marie-Françoise, age 5, and Rose-Adélaïde, age 1, who may have died soon after the family reached the colony.  Michel and Marie-Rosalie had more children in Louisiana and remained at Lafourche.

Mathurin-Jean Aucoin, age 30, was still a bachelor when he reached the colony on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in November.  He may not have married.  He served as an engagé, or hired worker, on the farm of a fellow Acadian on upper Bayou Lafourche.  

.

Anne Aucoin, age unrecorded, crossed on one of the Seven Ships with husband Joseph Cheramie, a Frenchman from Mauron, Brittany, and no children.  They went to upper Bayou Lafourche, where a son was born in April 1786.  Anne died probably at Lafourche by October 1786, when her husband remarried there to another Acadian.  Anne may have died in childbirth. 

.

Despite the failure of some of their family lines, the Aucoins from France created a second center of family settlement.  Most remained at Assumption, but a few moved down bayou into what became Lafourche Interior Parish:

Fabien AUCOIN (c1746-1799; Martin, Alexis)

Fabien, son of Alexis Aucoin, fils and Hélène Blanchard, born at Cobeguit in c1746, escaped to Île St.-Jean with his family in the fall of 1755, but the British deported them to France three years later.  Fabien married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Dupuis, at St.-Similien, Nantes, France, in May 1776.  They came to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, and settled on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Fabien died at Assumption in August 1799; he was only 53 years old.  He and Marguerite seem to have been that rare Acadian couple who had no children.  

Mathurin-Jean AUCOIN (c1755-?; Martin, Alexis?)

Mathurin-Jean, youngest son of Alexis Aucoin, fils and Hélène Blanchard of Cobeguit, born at Cobeguit in c1755, followed his family to Île St.-Jean as an infant and was deported with them to France in 1758.  He came to Louisiana alone and unmarried aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships in 1785.  In 1788, he was living at Lafourche with brother Fabien and his wife.  In the 1790s, while in his early 40s, Mathurin served as an engagé, or hired worker, on the upper Lafourche farm of fellow Acadian Élie Blanchard, probably a kinsman.  Unlike his older brothers, Mathurin-Jean did not marry.  

Descendants of Charles AUCOIN (c1747-1805; Martin)

Charles, also called Pierre-Charles, son of Charles Aucoin and Anne-Marie Dupuis, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1747, was a middle-aged bachelor when he came to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, with unmarried sister Félicité.  His fellow passengers chose him as one of the five onboard leaders of their "expedition."  The passenger list also noted that Charles was "well fixed financially."  He married Marie-Marguerite, called Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Noël of Minas and widow of Frenchman Guillaume-Jean Roquemont, at Lafourche in January 1786, soon after they reached the colony on the same ship; Charles was 39 years old at the time of the wedding, and Marguerite was only 22; she had been born at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo, France, in January 1764, soon after her family had been repatriated from England to France.  Their daughters married into the Daigle, Hébert, Landry, and LeBlanc families.  Charles died at Ascension in January 1805; he was 58 years old.  None of his three sons married, so this line of the family, except for its blood, did not survive in the Bayou State. 

1

Oldest son Marcellin-Firmin, born at Lafourche in May 1791, died at Assumption in December 1802.  He was only 11 years old. 

2

Augustin-Babilas, born at Assumption in January 1795, died at age 20 in August 1815.  He probably did not marry.  

3

Youngest son Evariste-Claude, born at Assumption in September 1801, died in February 1817.  He was only 15 years old. 

Descendants of Michel AUCOIN (c1755-1833; Martin, René)

Michel, son of Pierre Aucoin and Marguerite Dupuis, was born at Rivière-aux-Canards in c1755, the year his family was deported to one of the British seaboard colonies.  In the early 1760s, they moved with other Acadians to St.-Dominique, today's Haiti, where the Acadians suffered terribly.  Michel sailed from Cap-Français, St.-Domingue, to St.-Malo, France, which he reached in October 1769; he was only 14 years old.  He lived with the family of Jean Aucoin at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo, from 1769 to 1772.  Michel was a woodworker in France.  He married Marie-Rosalie, called Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean De La Forestrie and his first wife Marie-Madeleine Bonnière of Île St.-Jean, at Ste.-Croix, Nantes, France, in July 1779.  They came to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, with two young daughters.  They had more children on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughter married into the Dumon family.  Michel, père died in Assumption Parish in June 1833; the priest who recorded his burial said that Michel was 76 years old when he died, but he probably was a bit older.  Neither of his sons seems to have married, so this line of the family, except for its blood, may not have survived in the Bayou State.  

1

Older son Michel, fils, baptized at Ascension, no age given, in December 1786, may have died young. 

2

Younger son Célestin, born at Assumption in December 1793, also may have died young.

Pierre-Joseph-Antoine AUCOIN (1765-1829; Martin, Antoine)

Pierre-Joseph-Antoine, elder son of Antoine Aucoin, fils and Françoise Hébert, born at St.-Suliac, France, near St.-Malo, in January 1765, came to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, with his widowed father and a younger brother.  He followed them to Lafourche, where he married cousin Félicité, daughter of Charles Aucoin, in July 1786; Pierre-Joseph-Antoine was 21, and Félicité was 36, at the time of the wedding.  Félicité also had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère.  She died in Assumption Parish in November 1820; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 75 years old when she died, but she was "only" 70.  Pierre died in Assumption Parish in August 1829; he was 66 years old.  He and his wife were that rare Acadian couple who had no children.  

Descendants of Louis-Jean AUCOIN (1770-1841; Martin, Antoine)

Louis-Jean, younger son of Antoine Aucoin, fils and Françoise Hébert, born at St.-Suliac, France, near St.-Malo, in January 1770, came to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, with his widowed father and an older brother.  He followed them to Lafourche, where in 1788 he was working 6 arpents of land as a 17-year-old bachelor.  He married Victoire-Hélène, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Arcement, at Lafourche in August 1789.  Victoire had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships.  They settled at Assumption and may have lived for a time in New Orleans.  Their daughters married into the Almindingue, Bourg, Doiron, and Lejeune families.  Louis died in Assumption Parish in March 1841; he was 71 years old.

Descendants of Joseph AUCOIN (c1748-?; Martin, Michel)

Joseph, son of Paul Aucoin and Marie LeBlanc, was born at Grand-Pré in c1748, the second of his father's sons named Joseph.  The family moved to Île St.-Jean in c1751; they were counted at Rivière-du-Nord-Est on the island the following year.  In 1758, after the fall of Louisbourg, British forces deported them to Boulogne, France, where they remained until 1766.  In May of that year, they sailed from Boulogne to St.-Malo.  Joseph, now a sailor, married Élisabeth, or Isabelle, daughter of fellow Acadian François Henry and Marie Dugas, at St.-Suliac, near St.-Malo, in May 1770.  In the early 1770s, they were part of the failed settlement in Poitou and in early 1776 retreated to the port city of Nantes with other Poitou Acadians.  They came to Louisiana with five children aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, and settled at Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, before moving on to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Spanish officials first counted them in January 1791.  They had more children in Louisiana, including a son.  Their daughters married into the Barbier, Blanchard, Boudreaux, Guillot, and Richard families.  Joseph remarried to Euphrosine, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Barrilleaux and Véronique Giroir and widow of François Boudreaux and Charles Broussard, at Assumption in October 1797.  Euphrosine also had come to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, with her second husband.

Ursin married Léonelle, daughter of fellow Acadians Émile LeBlanc and Arthémise Gravois, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in August 1861.

1b

Caliste married Marcellite, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Baptiste Bourg and Angélique Dupuis, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in January or February 1849.  Their son Joseph Elphége was born in Assumption Parish in November 1855 but died at age 2 in February 1858.  Their daughters married into the Dupuis and Guillot families.  Caliste died in Assumption Parish in June 1856; he was only 37 years old.   His line of the family, except for its blood, probably died with him. 

1c

Bte. Aucoin's farm in the parish's Fourth Ward; this could have been Jean Baptiste.  Or he may have been the J. B. Aucoin who held only a single slave--a 37-year-old black male--in the same ward. 

2b

Joseph Grégoire, by his father's second wife, married first cousin Azélie Apolline, called Pauline, another daughter of Firmin Dupuis and Basilise Aucoin, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1849; they, too, had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Léo was born in Assumption Parish in December 1851 but died at age 9 in February 1861, Elphége Saint Clair was born in December 1854 but died at age 6 in January 1861, and Narcisse Ludovic was born in April 1857.

~

After a series of hurricanes smashed the Bayou des Écores settlement, north of Baton Rouge, in the early 1790s, most of the Aucoins there relocated to upper Bayou Lafourche, adding substantially to that center of family settlement.  As a result of this migration, in fact, the Lafourche valley became the largest center of Aucoin family settlement.  Like their cousins who had come to the upper bayou earlier, most of these Aucoins remained in Assumption Parish, but some of them moved down bayou into what became Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes: 

Élisabeth Aucoin, widow of Baptiste-Olivier Potier, died in Assumption Parish in November 1843.  She was 71 years old. 

Florianne Marguerite Aucoin, wife of François Barrilleaux, died in Assumption Parish in March 1852.  She was 71 years old. 

Françoise Victoire Aucoin, wife of Jean Guillaume Gautreaux, died in Lafourche Parish in March 1858.  The priest who recorded her burial said that she died "at age 78 yrs.," but she was 80.  She was among the last of the Acadian immigrants in Louisiana to join our ancestors.

Descendants of Joseph AUCOIN (c1744-?; Martin, Alexis)

Joseph, elder son of Alexis Aucoin, fils and Hélène Blanchard, was born probably at Cobeguit in c1744.  He and his parents escaped to Île St.-Jean in the early 1750s, but the British deported them to France in late 1758.  His father and three siblings died from the ordeal.  Joseph, his three remaining siblings, and his widowed mother lived at Ploubalay, near St.-Malo, from 1759 to 1760, and then at nearby St.-Coulomb from 1761 to 1763.  Joseph married Marie-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Hébert, at Ploubalay in March 1764.  They had 10 children in France between 1765 and 1780--eight sons and two daughters, most of whom died in childhood.  Neither of their daughters survived.  Marie-Josèphe died at Villou, near St.-Malo, in June 1781; she was only 37 years old.  Joseph, still a widower, sailed to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, with four sons.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  Joseph remarried to cousin Marie, daughter of Jean-Baptiste Aucoin and Marguerite Thériot, probably at Bayou des Écores in May 1788.  Marie gave him more children, including two sons.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, they moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, though Joseph appears in no censuses there; he may have died on the river.  Four of his six sons created families of their own.  His grandsons settled not only in Assumption, but also in Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes. 

1

Oldest son Alexis-Joseph, by his father's first wife, born at Tremeureuc, France, near St.-Malo, in April 1765, married Françoise, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Henry and his second wife Anne Thibodeau, at New Orleans in January 1786, soon after they reached Louisiana on the same ship.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin, Fremin, and LeBoeuf families.  Alexis remarried to Anne-Marguerite, called Marguerite and Annette, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Dugas and Anastasie Barrilleaux, at Assumption in January 1799.  Marguerite had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  Their son Alexis-Célestin, called Célestin, was born at Assumption in May 1801, Jean Baptiste le jeune in July 1805, Léon in May 1811, Basile Joseph or Joseph Basile in December 1812, Ursin in c1814, and Joseph Hermogène, also called Mathurin, in April 1817.  Their daughters married into the Arcement and Dupré families.  Alexis died in Lafourche Interior Parish in March 1826; he was 61 years old.  Only two of his six sons created families of their own.  One of them settled in Terrebonne Parish.

1c

Ursin, by his father's second wife, married Rosalie Marianne, called Marianne, Comstock of New Orleans and Terrebonne Parish, at the Thibodeaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1840; Marianne was baptized the same day she married, so she probably was a Protestant when she met Ursin.  They settled in Terrebonne Parish.  Their son Ursin Evariste, called Evariste, had been born in April 1839.  Their daughters married into the Benoit and Trosclair families. 

Evariste married Marie Aimée, called Aimée and Emelina, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Deroche his Creole wife Pélagie Baye of Terrebonne Parish, in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in April 1859, and sanctified the marriage at the Houma church, Terrebonne Parish, the following June.  They settled near Montegut.

2

3

Mathurin-Jean le jeune, by his father's first wife, born at Tremeureuc, France, near St.-Malo, in April 1772, may have married Madeleine Aucoin "of Lafourche" perhaps at Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s.  Their son Jean-Baptiste was born at Bayou des Écores in May 1792, and Joseph-Firmin was baptized at Baton Rouge, age unrecorded, in April 1794 but died at age 20 months the following September.  Mathurin-Jean remarried to Marie-Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Étienne Darois, at Assumption in November 1799.  Marie-Madeleine was Mathurin's brother Fabien's wife's sister and had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  Their son Désiré-Mathurin or -Jean was born at Assumption in March 1801, and Joseph Eugène, also called Mathurin, in June 1805.  Mathurin Jean died in Lafourche Interior Parish in April 1835; he was 63 years old.  His one son who married settled in Lafourche Interior Parish.

5

Germain-Jacques, by his father's second wife, born at Bayou des Écores in December 1788, may not have survived childhood.  

6

Youngest son Jean-Baptiste, by his father's second wife, born probably at Bayou des Écores and baptized by a Pointe Coupée priest, age unrecorded, in May 1792, married Marie Ludivine, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Richard and Marie Josèphe Trahan, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1811.  Their son Jean Baptiste Alexis was born in Assumption Parish in December 1811.  Their daughter married into the Guédry family.  Jean Baptiste, père died in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1844; the priest who recorded his burial said that Jean Baptiste died "at age 54 yrs."  His only son may not have married, so this branch of the family, except for its blood, may not have survived in the Bayou State. 

Jean Baptiste Alexis died in Assumption Parish in September 1834.  He was only 23 years old and probably did not marry.  

Descendants of Jean-Charles AUCOIN (1761-1810s; Martin, Michel, Antoine)

Jean-Charles, eldest son of Michel Aucoin and Élisabeth Hébert, born at St.-Lunaire, France, near St.-Malo, in July 1761, came to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, with his parents and siblings and followed them to Bayou des Écores, where he married Hélène, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Thibodeaux and Madeleine Henry, in November 1787.  Hélène also had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, Jean-Charles and Hélène moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Breaux, and Lecompte families.  In October 1813, a Lafourche Interior Parish court named Joseph Hébert as tutor for Jean Charles's minor children, so Jean Charles probably had died by then; he would have been in his early 50s that year.  Two of his sons settled in Lafourche Interior Parish, and two of his grandsons in Terrebonne Parish.  

1

Oldest son Casimir, born at Bayou des Écores in November 1788, died young.

2a

Jean Baptiste Élie, by his father's first wife, married Julie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Levron and his Creole wife Marie Adam, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in September 1833.  Their son Jean Baptiste Valsin, called Valsin, was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in September 1834, and Marcilia Franklin, called Franklin, in March 1843.  They also had a son named Alphonse.  Their daughters married into the Bourg, Naquin, and Robichaux families.  Jean Baptiste died in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1847; he was only 31 years old; a bond for the tutorship of his seven surviving children was filed in his name at the Thibodaux courthouse in March, and a petition for sale of his effects in April. 

During the War of 1861-65, Franklin served in Company G of the 18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Lafourche Parish, which fought in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana.  Franklin was living in New Orleans when he enlisted in Company G in early October 1861; he was 18 years old, had a florid complexion, auburn hair, blue eyes, and stood five feet eleven inches.  He was wounded at the Battle of Shiloh, Tennessee, in April 1862 and sent home on 60-day furlough.  That summer, his company's orderly sergeant reported that he had "heard of him, unwell."  Franklin was still at home recuperating from his wound and perhaps serving with the local Lafourche Parish militia when he fought in the Battle of Labadieville in October.  The Federals captured him in late November, and he was exchanged aboard the steamer Frolic near Baton Rouge in late February 1863.  Franklin returned to the 18th Louisiana later in the year and was reported on the rolls of the Consolidated 18th Regiment and Yellow Jackets Battalion in late 1863.  He fell into the hands of the Federals again at Lafourche in September 1864.  He was not exchanged this time but sent to Ship Island, Mississippi, and then on to Fort Columbus, New York harbor, from where he was transferred to the prisoner of war camp at Elmira, New York, in late November.  Though he was still recuperating from his wound, he survived the terrible winter at Elmira, was paroled there in early February 1865, and sent to the James River, Virginia, to be exchanged.  He was not exchanged, however.  Being "not able to travel," he was returned to Elmira, where he took the oath of allegiance to the United States government in late June 1865.  He returned home and married Léontine, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Bourg and Euphrosine Boudreaux of Lafourche Parish, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1866; the marriage also was recorded in Lafourche Parish.  Their son Jean Baptiste Joseph was born in Lafourche Parish in October 1868 but died at age 1 in September 1869.  Franklin died in Lafourche Parish in August 1920; he was 77 years old.  He is buried in St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery, Thibodaux.

2c

4a

Similien, by his father's first wife, may have married fellow Acadian Aglae Landry in Assumption Parish in the early 1850s.  Their son Evelien Oscar, called Oscar, was born in Assumption Parish in November 1854 but died at age 9 months the following August.  Similien remarried to cousin Anastasie, daughter of fellow Acadians Firmin Dupuis and Apolline Aucoin, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in April 1857; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Edgar Firmin was born near Plattenville in October 1870.  In June 1860, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted 4 slaves--2 males and 2 females, all black, ages 30 to 1--on Maximilien Aucoin's farm in the parish's Fourth Ward.

Bte. Aucoin's farm in the parish's Fourth Ward; this could have been Jean Baptiste.  Or he may have been the J. B. Aucoin who held only a single slave--a 37-year-old black male--in the same ward.

5b

During the War of 1861-65, Onésime served with older brother Ulysse in Company F of the Lafourche Regiment Militia.  He was captured in Lafourche Parish in November1862, took the oath of allegiance to the United States government, and went home.  Onésime married Adèle, another daughter of Isidore Hortere Guillot and Euphrosine Guillot, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in February 1864.

Adrien Augustin married Marie Domitille, daughter of Jean Romain and Marie LeBoeuf, in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in April 1859.  They settled near Brashear City, later Morgan City, St. Mary Parish.

7

Youngest son Rosémond, born at Assumption in December 1803, married Clara or Clarisse, yet another daughter of Francois Marie Gautreaux and Félicité Hébert, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1827.  Their son Jules Adelaine was born in Assumption Parish in December 1828, and Terence Zephyr in February 1836.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin and Blanchard families.  Rosémond died in Assumption Parish in March 1844; he was only 40 years old.

Descendants of Michel-Pierre AUCOIN (1769-; Martin, Michel, Antoine)

Michel-Pierre, third son of Michel Aucoin and Élisabeth Hébert, born at St.-Énogat, France, near St.-Malo, in February 1769, came to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, with his parents and siblings.  He followed them to Bayou des Écores and then to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marguerite-Pérrine, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Bourg and Anne Daigle, at Assumption in May 1800.  Marguerite-Pérrine also had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel.  Their daughters married into the Arceneaux, Delaune, and Dubois families.  Their two sons settled in Assumption Parish. 

1

2

Younger son Michel Suliac, born at Assumption in September 1809, married Basilisse, Rosalie, or Arselie, daughter of fellow Acadians Alexandre Arceneaux and Marie Aimée Blanchard, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1835.  Their son Michel Honoré Théodule, called Honoré, was born in Assumption Parish in February 1836 but died at age 12 in October 1848, Joseph was born in December 1837, Arsène Vincent in April 1843, Louis Éloi, called Éloi, in March 1845, André Ulysse in June 1852, and Émile Augustin in July 1854.  Their daughter married an Aucoin cousin.  Michel died in Assumption Parish in May 1855; he was only 45 years old. 

Éloi married first cousin Azéma, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Hébert and Alexandrine Arceneaux, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in August 1869; Azéma's mother was Éloi's maternal aunt, so they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.

Descendants of Pierre-Paul AUCOIN (1770-1818; Martin, Michel, Antoine)

Pierre-Paul, fourth son of Michel Aucoin and Élisabeth Hébert, born at St.-Énogat, France, near St.-Malo, in July 1770, came to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, with his parents and siblings.  He followed them to Bayou des Écores and then to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Rosalie-Charlotte, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Gautreaux and Madeleine Melançon, at Assumption in October 1799.  Rosalie was a native of Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, and had come to Louisiana aboard La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships.  They settled at Assumption, where most of their children were born.  Their daughters married into the Blanchard, Bourg, and Delaune families.  Pierre Paul died in Assumption Parish in April 1818; he was only 47 years old.  Four of his six sons created families of their own and remained in Assumption Parish. 

1

Oldest son Joseph-Marie, born at Assumption in September 1800, married cousin Rosalie Carmelite or Carmelite Rosalie, daughter of Francois Aucoin and Rosalie Landry, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in August 1822.  Their son Julien Joseph was born in Assumption Parish in January 1824.  Joseph Marie died in Assumption Parish in March 1825; he was only 25 years old.

2

Descendants of François-Étienne AUCOIN (1773-1837; Martin, Michel, Antoine)

François-Étienne, fifth and youngest son of Michel Aucoin and Élisabeth Hébert, born at St.-Énogat, France, near St.-Malo, in December 1773, came to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, with his parents and siblings.  He followed them to Bayou des Écores and then to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married cousin Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Comeaux and Marguerite Aucoin and widow of François Bourg, at Assumption in June 1800.  Madeleine also had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel.  Francois Étienne, called Étienne Francois by the priest who recorded his burial, died in Assumption Parish in October 1837; he was 64 years old.

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN, fils (1764-1812; Martin, ?)

Jean-Baptiste, fils, elder son of Jean-Baptiste Aucoin and Marguerite Terriot, born at Plouër, France, near St.-Malo, in May 1764, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, and followed them to Bayou des Écores, where he married Rose-Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadians Marin Bourg and Osite Daigle.  Rose-Madeleine also was a native of Plouër and had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, Jean-Baptiste, fils and Rose moved to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughters married into the Bourg, Landry, LeBlanc, Picou, and Porche families.  Jean Baptiste, fils died in Assumption Parish in June 1812; he was 48 years old.  His only son may have died young, so this line of the family, except for its blood, may not have survived in the Bayou State.  

Jean-Baptiste III, born at Baton Rouge in March 1801, may not have survived childhood.  

Descendants of François-Malo AUCOIN (1769-; Martin, Alexis)

François-Malo, elder son of Joseph Aucoin and his second wife Anne Hébert, born at Tremeureuc, France, near St.-Malo, in November 1769, came to Louisiana with his family aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, and followed them to Bayou des Écores.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, he followed his widowed mother to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Boudreaux and his second French wife Marie-Perrine Nogues, at Assumption in February 1800.  Marie also had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel.  They settled at Assumption.  Their daughter married into the Gautreaux family.  Although he and his wife had at least four sons, only one of them married, and his line of the family probably died with him. 

1

Oldest son Joseph-François, born at Assumption in December 1801, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1845.  He was 43 years old and may not have married.    

2

Jean Baptiste Valéry, born at Assumption in October 1805, married Euphrosine Adelina, daughter of Pierre Hippolyte Bree, Bret, or Brez, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1835; Euphrosine's mother was a Boudreaux.  Jean Baptiste Valéry died in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1835; he was only 30 years old.  His line of the family probably died with him.  Euphrosine remarried to another Aucoin

3

Amand Constance was born in Assumption Parish in March 1811 and probably did not marry. 

4

Youngest son Zenon Nicolas was born in Assumption Parish in December 1816 and also may not have married. 

Gabriel-Guillaume AUCOIN (1772-; Martin, Alexis)

Gabriel-Guillaume, second son of Joseph Aucoin and his second wife Anne Hébert, born at Tremeureuc, France, near St.-Malo, in March 1772, came to Louisiana with his family aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, and followed them to Bayou des Écores.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, he followed his widowed mother to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marguerite-Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean-Baptiste Boudreaux and Marie-Modeste Trahan, at Assumption in April 1800.  Marguerite-Marie had come to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships.  One wonders if Gabriel Guillaume and Marguerite-Marie had any children.  Marguerite remarried in May 1810, so Gabriel Guillaume was dead by then.  Interestingly, her third husband, whom she married at Thibodeaux in February 1848, was her first husband's younger brother!  Moreover, she was 65 years old at the time of the marriage. 

Descendants of Hyacinthe-Laurent AUCOIN (1785-1861; Martin, Alexis)

Hyacinthe-Laurent, sometimes called Pierre-Hyacinthe, third and youngest son of Joseph Aucoin and his second wife Anne Hébert, born at La Haute Marchandais, France, near St.-Malo, in April 1785, came to Louisiana with his family aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, and followed them to Bayou des Écores.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, he followed his widowed mother to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marie-Céleste, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Delaune, at Assumption in July 1804.  Marie-Céleste had come to Louisiana aboard La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships.  They settled in what became Lafourche Interior Parish.  Their daughters married into the Arcement, Boudreaux, Lagrange, and Richard (French Creole, not Acadian) families.  Hyacinthe remarried to Marguerite Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Boudreaux and widow of Gabriel Guillaume Aucoin (his older brother!) and Joseph Marcellin Dubois, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1848; Hyacinthe was 62 years old, and Marguerite was 65!  Marguerite had come to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships from France.  In June 1860, federal census takers in Assumption Parish counted 2 slaves--a 50-year-old black female and an 11-year-old black male--in Hyacinthe Aucoin's household in the Eighth Ward of Napoleonville.  Hyacinthe died probably at Napoleonville in October 1861; the priest who recorded his burial said that Hyacinthe died at "age 72 years," but he was 75; a petition for a family meeting was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse in March 1862, so he may have owned property in Lafourche Parish as well.  Hyacinthe was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in Louisiana to join our ancestors. 

1

Oldest son Hubert Valéry, by his father's first wife, born at Ascension in August 1806, married Marie Delphine, called Delphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Mire and Henriette Bernard, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in May 1838.  Their son Augustin or Auguste Pierre was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1840, and Charles died 3 weeks after his birth in April 1843.  Their daughters married into the Gautreaux, Hargis, and Lagarde families.  A petition for tutorship of his three surviving children was filed in his name at the Thibodaux courthouse in October 1854, so Hubert probably had died by then, perhaps in his late 40s.  In June 1860, the federal census taker in Lafourche Parish counted a single slave--a 25-year-old black male--in Mrs. H. Aucoin's household in the Seventh Ward of Thibodaux "city"; this may have been Delphine Mire's slave.

Auguste Pierre married Rebecca, daughter of fellow Acadian Eugène Chiasson and his Creole wife Hortense Lagarde, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in January 1866.  Their son Pierre Charles was born in Lafourche Parish in December 1867. 

2

Valsin Rosémond, by his father's first wife, born in Assumption Parish in January 1817, died at age 8 in September 1825.  

3

Youngest son Auguste or Augustin Zéphirin, by his father's first wife, born in Assumption Parish in April 1819, married Clementine, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Marie Boudreaux and his Creole wife Rosaile Aisene, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in November 1838.  Their son Jules Léonie was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in March 1841, Auguste Delphi or Delphi Auguste in January 1845, Gustave near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in February 1849, Octave in December 1850, and Joseph Matheus in October 1852 but died "during yellow fever epidemic," age 1, in September 1853.  Their daughters married into the Creszioni and Richard (French Creole, not Acadian) families.  In September 1850, federal census takers in Assumption Parish counted four slaves--all male, all black, ages 44 to 22--on Auguste Aucoin's farm in the parish's Second Congressional District; this may have been Auguste Zéphirin.  Auguste died near Labadieville in November 1860; he was only 41 years old. 

Delphi Auguste married cousin Marie Elfrida, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Boudreaux and Marie Gautreaux, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in September 1863.

Other AUCOINs in the Lafourche Valley

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link some Aucoins in the Bayou Lafourche valley with known lines of the family there:  

Antoine Aucoin married Marie Aucoin.  Their son Faldius Apollinaire was born in Assumption Parish in July 1831.

Alexis Aucoin married Célanie Bergeron.  Their son Ovide Zéphirin was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in May 1835.

Félicien Aucoin married fellow Acadian Francoise Thelanie, called Thelanie and Uranie, Doiron probably in Assumption Parish in the late 1840s.  Their son Victor Odvery was born in Assumption Parish in October 1853.  Which Félicien was this? 

Fanchi Aucoin died in Assumption Parish in July 1849, "age 42 years."  The priest who recorded Fanchi's burial did not give his/her parents' names, mention a wife or husband, or even say if Fanchi was male or female. 

In September 1850, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted a single slave--a 24-year-old black male--on Joseph Aucoin's farm in the parish's Second Congressional District.  One wonders which Joseph Aucoin this might have been. 

Élie Aucoin married Carmelite Fryoux and settled in Assumption Parish by the early 1850s. 

Mélanie Aucoin gave birth to son Marcellin Telesphore in Assumption Parish in March 1854.  The Plattenville priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names. 

Michel Aucoin married Rosalie Baroc, probably Barras, and settled near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, by the late 1850s. 

In June 1860, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted a single slave--a 45-year-old black male--on Jos. T. Aucoin's farm in the parish's Third Ward.  Which Joseph Aucoin was this? 

Joseph Aucoin married Marie Aucoin and settled near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, by the early 1860s. 

Ernest Aucoin died in Assumption Parish, "age a few months," in September 1861.  The Plattenville priest who recorded the boy's burial did not record his parents' names. 

Théophile Aucoin married cousin Felicia, Félicie, or Ofilia Aucoin.  Their son Rémi Ovide Théogène was born near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in March 1863, and Michel Eusilien in April 1868. 

LOUISIANA:  WESTERN SETTLEMENTS

In 1785, two families of Aucoins from France went to the Attakapas District, west of the Atchafalaya Basin, while another settled in the Opelousas District, north of Attakapas: 

Joseph Aucoin, age 60, crossed on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in November.  With him was wife Madeleine Gautrot, age 63.  They did not follow the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche but may have gone, instead, to the Attakapas District, where Madeleine died in February 1809.

Élisabeth Duhon, age 42, widow of Alexandre Aucoin, also crossed on L'Amitié.  With her were seven daughters--Anne-Marie, age 24, Geneviève, age 20, Marie-Madeleine, age 17, Marie-Félicité, called Félicité, age 15, Élisabeth- or Isabelle-Josèphe, age 13, Anne-Augustine, age 11, and Marie-Renée, age 6.  Élisabeth's younger daughters married into the Benoit, Faulk, Granger, Guidry, Sellers, Simon, and Trahan families at Attakapas and remained on the western prairies.  Older daughters Anne-Marie and Geneviève may not have married.  Anne Augustine, wife of Joseph Laurent Granger, died in Lafayette Parish in January 1822, in her late 40s.  Marie Madeleine, wife of Jean Baptiste Simon, died in Lafayette Parish in March 1823, in her mid-50s.  Élisabeth Josèphe, wife of Joseph Benoit, died in Lafayette parish in April 1835, in her early 60s. 

.

Claude Aucoin, age 57, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  With him were wife Marie-Josèphe Saunier of Petitcoudiac, age 48, and five children--Perpétué, age 22, Anne-Anastasie, age 17, Mathurin-Casimir, age 13, Marie-Gertrude, age 12, and Pierre, age 9.  They may have gone to the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, with the majority of their fellow passengers and then moved on to the Opelousas District, or, more likely, they went straight to Opelousas, where Saunier/Sonniers had settled 20 years before.  Claude and Marie-Josèphe had no more children in Louisiana.  Their daughters married into the Bertrand (French Canadian, not Acadian) and Normand families.  Claude remarried to Marie-Geneviève, daughter of fellow Acadian Mathieu Brasseaux dit La Citardy and widow of Pierre-Olivier Benoit, at Opelousas in November 1788.  She gave him no more children.  Claude died at Opelousas in August 1794; he was 66 years old.  His descendants drifted into the wide prairies north and west of Opelousas, where they settled on Grande Prairie and along Bayou Mallet, near present-day Ville Platte and Eunice.  In the late 1800s and early 1900s, some of them drifted west into the Lake Charles area and on into east Texas. 

.

The Aucoins from France created a small center of family settlement on the western prairies.  By the late 1800s, their descendants could be found not only in the old Opelousas District, but also in the Vermilion River valley from Lafayette down to Abbeville: 

Élisabeth or Isabelle Aucoin of Minas, widow of Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc and Pierre Richard, died near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in October 1825, in her early 90s. 

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN (c1758-?; Martin, Joseph)

Jean-Baptiste, eldest son of Claude Aucoin and his first wife Marie-Josèphe Saunier, was born at Bristol, England, in c1758.  In May 1763, his family was repatriated to France.  They resided at Plouër, near St.-Malo, from 1763 to 1772, before moving to the Poitou region, where they participated in a failed settlement scheme during the early 1770s before returning to St.-Malo.  Jean-Baptiste married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Jacques Forest and Marguerite or Marie Comeau, at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo, in April 1784.  They came to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 with their infant daughter Marie-Jeanne.  They lived for a while at Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, where they had more daughters.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, they moved to the Opelousas District, where his parents and younger siblings had gone.  Their daughters married into the Bellard, Desmarais, Fontenot, and Vigé families.  Jean-Baptiste died by November 1802, when he was listed as deceased in a daughter's marriage record at Opelousas.  He and Marie had a number of daughters but evidently no sons, so this line of the family, except for its blood, may not have survived in the Bayou State.  

Descendants of Mathurin-Casimir AUCOIN (1771-?; Martin, Joseph)

Mathurin-Casimir, second son of Claude Aucoin and his first wife Marie-Josèphe Saunier, born at Plouër, France, near St.-Malo, in March 1771, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  He followed them to the Opelousas District, where he married Susanne, called Susette, daughter of Philippe Langlois and his Acadian wife Marie Jeansonne, in October 1796.  Their daughters married into the Bergeau and Trahan families.  Only one of his sons created a family of his own. 

1

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste, baptized at the Opelousas church, age unrecorded, in February 1797, married Marguerite Saucier probably in St. Landry Parish in the 1820s.  Their son Jean Baptiste, fils was born in St. Landry Parish in August 1825.  Their daughter married into the St. Germain family.  Jean Baptiste, père died in St. Landry Parish in July 1828; he was only 31 years old.

Jean Baptiste, fils married Anglo American Susan Smith, widow of ___ Hall, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in April 1853.  Their son Jean Baptiste III was born near Ville Platte, then in St. Landry but now in Evangeline Parish, in August 1853.

2

Mathurin, fils, baptized at the Opelousas church, age unrecorded, in February 1800, may have died young, unless his name also was Treville

3

Youngest son Pierre le jeune, born probably in St. Landry Parish in c1823, died at age 6 in September 1829.  

Descendants of Pierre AUCOIN (c1776-?; Martin, Joseph)

Pierre, third and youngest son of Claude Aucoin and his first wife Marie-Josèphe Saunier, born in France in c1776, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  He followed them to the Opelousas District, where he married Françoise, daughter of French Creole Joseph Silvestre and Catherine Hayes, in January 1800.  Pierre remarried to Marie-Jeanne, daughter of French Creole Philippe Fontenot and Marie Brignac and widow of Joseph Saucier, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in May 1818; he was 42 years old.  His sons settled in St. Landry Parish.  Most of the Aucoins in the western parishes descend from Pierre and his four sons.  Not unusual for Acadians in St. Landry Parish, few of them married fellow Acadians. 

1

Other AUCOINSs on the Western Prairies

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link some Aucoins in the western parishes with known lines of the family there:  

Pierre Aucoin married Éloise Célestine Simon Fontenot and settled in St. Landry Parish by the early 1840s.

Joseph Aucoin married Julienne Cooper or Coupel and settled near Pattersonville, St. Mary Parish, by the early 1850s.  His succession record was filed at the Franklin courthouse in July 1854. 

Célestine Aucoin married Apollinaire Fryean in a civil ceremony in St. Mary Parish in October 1865.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couples' parents' names. 

Celina Aucoin married Landry, son of fellow Acadian Cyprien Granger and widower of Françoise Deshotel, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in August 1867.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couples' parents' names. 

Carmelite E. Aucoin married Pierre Paul Monte in a civil ceremony in St. Mary Parish in August 1868.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couples' parents' names. 

Serius Aucoin married Rela Sindee and settled in Lafayette Parish by the late 1860s. 

François Aucoin married Marie Ramois and settled near Brashear, now Morgan, City, St. Mary Parish, by the late 1860s. 

Aristide, also called Orestile, Aucoin married fellow Acadian Angelina Giroir.  Their son Victor Charles was born near Brashear, now Morgan, City, St. Mary Parish, February 1869. 

.

An Aucoin family who lived in St. Landry Parish during the antebellum period cannot be linked by area church and civil records to other Aucoins in the area: 

Descendants of Treville AUCOIN (?-)

Treville Aucoin married Marie Ellender probably in St. Landry Parish in the early 1820s.  (Though area church records consistently call him Treville, one wonders if he was the same person as Mathurin, fils, son of Mathurin Casimir Aucoin of St. Landry Parish.)  By the late 1840s, Treville and his family were living on the Calcasieu prairies.  Treville's daughter Marie Sylvanie gave birth to son Jean Pierre in St. Landry Parish in February 1857, when she was in her late 20s; the Opelousas priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the father's name.  The previous year, Marie Sylvanie had given birth to a daughter whose father's name also was not recorded. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, born in Lafayette Parish in March 1823, may have married Sylvanie Aucoin and settled in Calcasieu Parish. 

2

Michel, born in c1826, was baptized at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, age 13, in July 1839.  

3

Pierre, born in c1831 and baptized at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, age 8, in July 1839, may have married cousin Ceranie or Cirene Ellender in the early 1850s.  Their son Levi Georges was born near Grand Coteau in January 1853, and Jean Pierre in June 1856. 

4

Paul, born in c1834, was baptized at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, age 5, in July 1839.  

5

Youngest son Martin, born in c1836, was baptized at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, age 3, in July 1839.  

CONCLUSION

Aucoins were among the early settlers of Acadia, but they came "late" to Louisiana.  In fact, if the Spanish government had not coaxed over 1,500 Acadians in France to emigrate to the colony, there probably would be no Aucoins in the Bayou State today.  Most, if not all, of the Aucoins of South Louisiana are descendants of Martin of Cougnes.

Over 90 Aucoins came to the colony on five of the Seven Ships from France in 1785; only two other families, the Héberts and the Trahans, outnumbered the Aucoins on the Seven Ships expedition.  They settled at Manchac on the Acadian Coast, on upper Bayou Lafourche, below New Orleans at San Bernardo, and on the western prairies at Attakapas and Opelousas.  Most of them, however, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, and followed their fellow passengers to the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, now Thompson's Creek, north of Baton Rouge.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores en masse in the early 1790s, a few Aucoins remained on the river in what became Iberville, East Baton Rouge, and West Baton Rouge parishes, but most of them moved to upper Bayou Lafourche, adding significantly to that center of family settlement.  Assumption Parish retained the largest concentration of Aucoins during the antebellum period, though some moved down bayou into Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes and, after the War of 1861-65, to the Morgan City area of St. Mary Parish and to New Iberia farther up the Teche.  Meanwhile, Aucoins west of the Atchafalaya Basin settled in St. Landry, St. Mary, Calcasieu, and Evangeline parishes, most of them remaining on the Opelousas prairies, where their ancestors from France had settled in the late 1780s. 

Judging by the number of slaves they held during the late antebellum period, the Aucoins of South Louisiana participated only peripherally in the South's plantation economy.  Few appeared in the federal slave registers of 1850 and 1860, and, among the ones who did, none came close to holding enough slaves (20) to qualify as a planter. ...

Dozens of Aucoins served Louisiana in uniform during the War of 1861-65.  Perhaps no family lost more sons to the Confederate war effort than the Aucoins of Assumption Parish. ...

The family's name also is spelled Au Coin, Au Coing, Aucouin, Aukonaut, Auquoin, Ocoin, Ocuyan, Oquin, Oquoin.  [See Book Ten for the family's Louisiana "begats"]

Her husband's death/burial record, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:52 (Opel. Ch.: v.1, p.57), dated 27 Sep 1802, calls him Amable Beaulieu BERTRAND, native of Canada, & says he was buried "... free of charge (presumably poor)".  Anastasie & Amable died only a few weeks apart.  His succession record, dated 5 Feb 1803, St. Landry Parish Courthouse, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:18, 52 (LSAR: Opel: 1803), calls him Amable BERTRAND, widr. of Anastasie AUCOIN, & lists 5 children: Angele, Félicité, Pierre, Jean-Baptiste, & Louis BERTRAND.  Poor kids.  

05.  Wall of Names, 42, calls her Anne AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 86-87, calls her Anne AUCOIN, sa [Joseph's] fille, Anne AUCOIN, daughter [of Joseph]; BRDR, 2:33, 373, her marriage record, calls her Anne AUCOIN of St. Malo, her husband Pierre John HEBERT of St. Malo, says the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph HEBERT, Guillaume AUCOIN, Francois HEBERT, & Francois DUGUE, & that it was recorded in Pointe Coupee.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 59.

07.  Wall of Names, 42, calls her Anne-Augustine AU COIN; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2405, 2406, calls her Anne-Augustine AUCOIN, says she was born in 1777, gives her parents' names, & the details her first marriage but says nothing of her second marriage; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 15, her birth/baptismal record, recorded at Bangor, Belle-Île-en-Mer, calls her Anne-Augustine AUCOIN, & gives her parents' but not her godparents' names; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 3, calls her Anne-Augustine AUCOIN; Hebert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 82-83, calls her Anne-Augustine AU COIN, sa [Elisabeth DUHON's] fille, Anne-Augustine AUCOIN, her [Elizabeth DUHON's] daughter, & provides her birth date; Hebert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:22, 775 (SM Ch.: v.4, #107), the record of her first marriage, calls her Anne-Augustine AUCOIN, gives her & her husband's parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Jean-Baptiste TISSIMON, Jean-Baptiste TRAHAN, Rene BROUSSARD, & Charles DUON; Hebert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:18, 716 (SM Ct. Hse.: Succ. #34), the succession record of her first husband, dated 7 Dec 1808, St. Martin Parish Courthouse, calls her Augustine HAUTCOIN [AUCOIN]; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:30, 428 (SM Ct.Hse.: OA-34-4728; SM Ch.: v.6, #270), the record of her second marriage, calls her Augustine AUCOIN, widow of Pierre TRAHAN, inhabitant at Vermillion[sic], native of Belle Isle in France, & Delle AUCOIN, wid. of Pierre TRAHAN, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says he was a native of Opelousas, gives his middle name in the civil record, says in the civil record that she had no children, &, in the church record, says that the witnesses to her marriage were Célestin LANDRY & Louis GRANGE; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:30 (GC Ch.: v.1, p.8, #66), her death/burial record, calls her Augustine AUCOIN, widow of Pierre TRAHAN, details her death & burial, but does not give her parents' names or mention her second husband, whom she had married only a month before.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501.  

08.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Anne-Félicité [AUCOING], & lists her with her parents; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 15, her birth/baptismal record, recorded at St.-Nicolas, Boulogne, calls her Anne-Félicité AUCOIN, calls her parents Jean AUCOIN & Anne THERIOT, but does not give her godparents' names; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 6, Family No. 11, calls her Anne-Félicité [AUCOIN], details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s, & says she accompanied her parents to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Anne-Félicité, sa [Jean AUCOING's] fille, age 19, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Anne-Félicité AUCOIN, his [Jean AUCOIN's] daughter, age 19, on the complete listing, says she was in the 17th Family aboard La Bergère with her parents, & says she was born in 1765; BRDR, 2:34, 553 (ASC-2, 13), her marriage record, calls her Félicité OCUAN (AUCOIN), calls her husband Pedro MONTE does not give any parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Tranqulle PITRE & Joseph THÉRIOT.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 503; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 42, 60, 93, 145, 175.

La Bergère left Paimboeuf the day before her 20th birthday. 

Daughter Marie MONTET's marriage record, dated 24 Nov 1808, in BRDR, 3:122 (ASC-2, 178), calls her father Pierre Vincent, which agrees with his baptismal record.  See Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 331, dated 23 Jan 1764, & recorded at St.-Martin, Morlaix.   However, most LA records call him simply Pierre.  Although Pierre's mother was Acadian, his father likely was a Frenchman who married his mother in England in 1763, evidently before the Acadians were repatriated to France in May of that year.  The MONTETs settled near Bangor, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, where Pierre's younger siblings were born.  As Pierre's birth shows, after his parents were repatriated from England to France, they landed at Morlaix and moved on to Belle-Île-en-Mer in 1765 with other Acadian exiles who had lived in England.  Pierre's parents died on the island in 1779 & 1781, & he led his younger siblings to LA aboard La Caroline, the last of the 7 ships of 1785.  See Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 571. 

The Joseph THERIOT who witnessed her marriage probably was her sister Marie-Anastasie's husband & a distant cousin. 

09.  Wall of Names, 42, calls her Anne-Marie AU COIN; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exilie, 554, calls her Anne AUCOIN & provides her birth date; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 3, calls her Anne-Marie AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 82-83, calls her Anne-Marie AU COIN, sa [Elisabeth DUHON's] fille, Anne-Marie AUCOIN, her [Elizabeth DUHON's] daughter.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501. 

I have found no marriage record for her, so she probably died a spinster.

10.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Anne-Olive AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 29-30, Family No. 38, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Anne-Olive AUCOIN, give her parents' names, says her godparents were Olivier COUPEAUX & Anne TERRIOT, says her family resided at Plouër from 1763-72, & details their voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 94-95, calls her Anne-Olive AUCOIN, leur [Simon's & Marie-Genve's] fille, Anne-Olive AUCOIN, their [Simon's & Marie-Genevieve's] daughter; BRDR, 2:33, 427 (ASM-2, 16), her marriage record, calls her Ana Oliva OCOIN, calls her husband Isaac, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were from St. Malo & his from Charlesbour(sic), & says the witnesses to the marriage were Josef TERIOT, Amable LANDRY (brother/brother-in-law), & Ambrosio HEBERT.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 60, 94, 145.

How was her father kin to the other Acadian AUCOINs?

11.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L) calls him Antoine AUCOIN, & lists him with 2 sons; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Tamerlan.htm, Family No. 3; Robichaux, Acadians in Chatellerault, 3-4, Family No. 6, calls him Antoine AUCOIN, says he was born c1729, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, gives his wife's name, her first husband's name, but not her parents' names, says she was born c1741 but gives no birthplace, says that she died at about age 25 & was buried 7 Jan 1771 at St.-Suliac, Ille-et-Vilaine, France, gives the birth/baptismal record of son Francois-Charles, born 9 Nov 1767, baptized same day at St.-Suliac, godson of Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT & Anne AUCOIN, died age about 7 years, buried 24 Jul 1774, Senille, Vienne, France, & details his family's participation in the Grand Ligne settlement in Poitou; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls him Antoine AU COING, laboureur, age 65[sic], on the embarkation list, Antoine AUCOING, on the debarkation list, & Antoine AUCOIN, plowman, age 55, on the complete listing, says he was in the 12th Family aboard La Bergère with 2 sons, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to him & his family after they reached LA.  See also Voorhies, Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 489.  

Why is he not in any of the Valenzuéla censuses from 1788-98?  Did he die before 1788?  If so, I have not found his burial record.  See BRDR, vols. 2 & 3; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, index. 

12.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Cécille [AUCOING], & lists her with her parents & 2 sisters; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 24-25, Family No. 33, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Cécile AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, says she was goddaughter of Pierre RICHARD & Félicité AUCOIN, & that the family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 8, calls her Cécile AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, calls her Cécille, sa [Olivier AU COING's] fille, age 14, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, & Cécile AUCOIN, his [Olivier AUCOIN's] daughter, age 14, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 2nd Family aboard La Bergère with her parents & 2 sisters; BRDR, 2:33, 686-67 (ASC-2, 47), her marriage record, calls her Céleste AUCOIN of St.-Malo, gives her parents' names & says they were from St.-Malo, France, calls her husband Servano TEMPLÉ, gives his parents' names & says they also were from St.-Malo, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Pierre AUCOIN, Pierre BLANCHARD, Joseph BREAUX, Jean ÉBERT, & Louis BLANCHARD.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 489; & Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 41, 61, 97, 143, 173.  

Cécile/Céleste's family lived "next door" in Nantes to her future husband's family.  See Voorhies, J.  However, the families did not sail to LA on the same ship; the Andre TEMPLETs took the first ship, Le Bon Papa, the Olivier AUCOINs the second ship, La Bergère.  Cécile/Céleste was 14 & Servant was 15 when they sailed.  Servant's family settled at St.-Gabriel, Cécile/Céleste's at Ascension, but 7 years after they reached LA they married--doubtlessly a case of teenage love & devotion among the wandering Acadians.

13.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls him Charles AUCOING, & lists him with sister Félicité; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2407, calls him Charles AUCOIN, says he was probablement son of Jean AUCOIN & Jeanne THÉRIOT of Grand-Pré, calls his wife Marguerite NOËL, gives his marriage date, death date & place of burial, & his age at the time of his death; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 10, Family No. 17, calls him Charles AUCOIN, calls his parents Charles AUCOIN & Anne-Marie DUPUIS, says he was born in c1745 but gives no birthplace, says his widowed mother & 3 siblings "disembarked at St. Malo from England on May 23, 1763 from the ship, La Dorothée," & that they resided at St.-Servan between 1763-72 with the family of brother Alexandre; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, calls him Charles AU COING, marin, age 36, on the embarkation list, Charles AUCOING, on the debarkation list, & Charles AUCOIN, sailor, age 36, on the complete listing, says he was in the 3rd Family aboard La Bergère with sister Félicité, says he was 40 in 1789, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to him & his family after they reached LA; BRDR, 2:33, 565 (ASC-1, 162 & 163), his marriage record, calls him Charles OQUAN (AUCOIN) but does not give his parents' names, calls his wife Margarita NOËL but does not give her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Olivier AUCOIN, Giuion MAZEROL, & Paul BELILE; BRDR, 3:41 (ASC-4, 57), his burial record, calls him Pierre-Charles AUCOIN, res. of Assumption, & says he was 56 at the time of his death, so this must be him, but does not give his parents' names.  See also Winzerling, Acadian Odyssey, 135, source of quote about his finances, attributed to Olivier TERRIO; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 22, 66, 106, 115, 154.

Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 12, Family No. 21, list 7 children for Jean AUCOIN & Jeanne THERIOT, but none of them are named Charles or Félicité.  So where did Arsenault get his probablement?  

For his appointment as 1 of the 5 Acadian leaders aboard La Bergère, see Hebert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 29.

He is called Pierre-Charles only in his death/burial record.  None of the censuses in which he appears call him anything but Charles or a derivation of that name.

Note that his future wife, Marguerite NOËL, was in the 5th Family aboard La Bergère with her sister Marie-Madeleine.  See Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, which also includes Marguerite's full name & the name of her first husband as well as the implements given to her & her sister by the Spanish after they reached LA.  So Charles may have known her in France or met her on the voyage to LA.  Why did he wait until his late 30s to marry?  Had he been married before?  Church records do not say that he was a widower.  He was 14 years older than Marguerite, who was a widow & the younger of the NOËL sisters; their parents' names & origin come from the marriage record of sister Marie-Madeleine NOËL in BRDR, 2:565 (SGA-14, 11); Marie-Madeleine married Blaise RIVET of St.-Gabriel in Apr 1788 at St.-Gabriel. 

14.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Charles AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 11, Family No. 18; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 94-95, calls him Charles AUCOIN, pere, Carlos AU COING, Charles AUCOIN, father, gives his marriage date, & details the implements given to him by the Spanish on his arrival in LA.  See also Arsenault, Généalogie, 1089. 

15.  Not in Wall of Names.  Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 104, calls him Carlos AU COING, includes him on a list of "Names with no reference on the embarkation list," & details the implements given to him by the Spanish on his arrival in LA.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 515.

16.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Claude AUCOIN; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2405-06, the LA section, calls him Claude AUCOIN, says he was born in c1740 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, calls his first wife Marie-Josephe SAULNIER, says they were married in c1761 but gives no place of marriage, details his second marriage, & lists his children by his first marriage as Perpétué, born c1766, Anastasie, born c1768, Pierre, born c1774, & Mathurin, born c1776; White, DGFA-1, 269, calls him Claude AUCOIN, gives his parents' names, the name of his first wife, & the marriage place & date for his second marriage; De Ville, Acadian Church Records, 19, the record of his first marriage, calls him Claude COING, "habitant of the parish of St. Joseph aux Mines [Rivière-aux-Canards]," gives his parents' names, his wife's parents' names, says the wedding took place in the "parishes of Petcoudian and St. Joseph aux Mines," & that the witness to the marriage was Jean LEGER; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 92-93, calls him Claude AUCOIN, père on the embarkation list, Claudio AU COING on the debarkation list, Claude AUCOIN, father, on the complete listing, & details the implements given to him by the Spanish on his arrival in LA; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:22 (Opel. Ch.: v.1-A, p.22; LSAR: Opel.: 1788), the record of his second marriage, calls him Claude AUCOIN of St. Joseph Parish, widr. of Marie-Josèphe SAUNIER, does not give his parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Blaise BRASSEUR, Baptiste FIGURON, Joseph JEANSONNE, & Jean JEANSONNE; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:22 (Opel. Ch.: v.1, p.23), his death/burial record, calls him Claude AUCOIN, but does not give his parents' or wives' names; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:22 (LSU-Archives: Opel.: #3), his succession record, calls him Claude AUCOIN, but does not give his parents' or wives' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 339. 

Did he go to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers on La Ville d'Archangel before going to the Opelousas District?  The official Spanish report on the disposition of 7-ship settlers says nothing of a family from this ship going to a settlement west of the Atchafalaya.  See Kinnaird, "Post War Decade, 1782-91," 169.  In placing this family on the Opelousas settlement list, I am following the Opelousas census of 1788 & the record of Claude's second marriage.  It also makes sense that if he was married to a SONNIER when he reached LA, he would have gone to the Opelousas area, where the SONNIERs had been living for 20 years.  

17.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Constant AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 92-93, calls him Constant AUCOIN, leur [Michel's & Isabelle's] fils, Constant AUCOIN, their [Michel's & Isabelle's] son.  See also Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 22-24, Family No. 31; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 56; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 515.

Did he survive the crossing aboard La Ville d'Archangel?  As D. Hébert shows, the debarkation list for that vessel included only the names of family heads. 

18.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Élisabeth AUCOING, & lists her with her husband & 2 sons; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 6, 145, Families No. 11 & No. 262, calls her Élizabeth AUCOIN, says she was born in c1748, gives her parents' names, her birth place, & details her marriage; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Élizabeth AU COING, sa [Tranqulle PITRE's] femme, age 46, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Élizabeth AUCOIN, his [Tranquille PITRE's] wife, age 46, on the complete listing, says she was in the 20th Family aboard La Bergère with her husband & 2 sons, & details her marriage, including her & her husband's parents' names; BRDR, 3:36 (ASM-3, 128), her burial record, calls her Élizabeth AUCOIN, 74 yrs. wid. Tranquille PITRE, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 43, 60, 93, 145, 175; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 503.  

She & her family came over on the same ship as her parents & his father.

Why does the passenger list for La Bergère exaggerate her age so much?  Based on Robichaux's estimated birth year--c1748--used here, she would have been only 37 in 1785.  Her husband was 36. 

19.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls her Élisabeth AU COIN, & lists her with her husband, no children, & a niece; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2408, the LA section, calls her Isabelle AUCOIN, says she was born in c1775 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, details her second marriage, calls her husband's parents Léandre RICHARD & Marie THIBAUDEAUX, & does not mention her first marriage; Arsenault, 2576, the LA section, calls her Marie-Isabelle AUCOIN, veuve de Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 564, Family No. 636, calls her Élizabeth AUCOIN, says she was born in c1734 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, details her marriage but gives no place of marriage, says her husband was born in c1740 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, & says she, her husband, & 3 of his siblings "disembarked at St.-Malo from England on May 22, 1763 from the ship, La Dorothée"; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 66-67, calls her Elisabeth AU COIN, sa [Jean Bte LEBLANC's] femme, age 50, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Élisabeth AUCOIN, his [Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC's] wife, age 50, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 5th Family aboard L'Amitié with her husband, no children, & a niece; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:23, 666 (Opel. Ch.: v.1-A, p. 75), the record of her second marriage, calls her Isabelle AUCOIN, calls her father "Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN [however, record actually has Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC, which is in error]," calls her mother Anne TRAHAN, does not give her first husband's name, though Fr. Hébert's correction hints at it, calls her second husband Pierre RICHARD "of Acadia," calls his parents Leandre [RICHARD] & Marie THIBODEAUX, does not give his first wife's name, & says the witnesses to the marriage were Cyrille THIBAUDEAU, Victor RICHARD, & Jean JEANSONNE; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:30 (GC Ch.: v.1, p.13, #102), her burial record, calls her Élizabeth AUCOIN, widow of Pierre RICHARD, but does not give her parents' names or mention her first husband.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 497.  

Her father's name was Joseph, not Jean-Baptiste.  See Book Three for the AUCOIN "begats" before & during the Exile. 

She & her husband going to San Bernardo is only a guess based on the fact that they are not in the census records at Ascension & the Lafourche valley in the 1780s & 1790s with other passengers from their ship & that some passengers from their ship went to "Nueva Galvez."  See <thecajuns.com/1785acad.pdf>.  Then again, they may have gone from New Orleans straight to the Opelousas District, where she remarried in Aug 1797.

What compelled her to go to the Opelousas Distrct?  Did she have relatives there?

20.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Isabelle AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 92-93, calls her Isabelle AUCOIN, leur [Michel's & Isabelle's] fille, Isabelle AUCOIN, their [Michel's & Isabelle's] daughter; BRDR, 2:39, 600, her marriage record, calls her Ysabel AUCOIN of St. Malo, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph GRANGER & Michel AUCOIN; BRDR, 6:27 (ASM-10, 42), her death/burial record, calls her Élisabeth AUCOIN, "age 70 yrs., widow of Olivier POTIER," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 515; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 56, 86, 137.

She was 94 years old when she died & may have been the last of the nearly 2,900 Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors.

Her burial record does not say it, but she was a widow at the time of her death, her husband having died in Jul 1850, age 74.  She did not remarry.  Despite what her burial record says, she died at age 80. 

She was among the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors, as was her brother, Hyacinthe-Laurent.

Her estimated birth year is from the passenger lists of 1759 & 1785, which pretty much agree.  Unfortunately, the Ascension priest in 1786 did not bother to give her age when she died.  Why does Robichaux, in his studies of the Acadians in France, says she was born in c1743?  Where did he get that date?  He cites no primary source for it, so I will go with the passenger lists.  

What happened to sons Grégoire-Michel & Pierre DOIRON, who would have been 16 & 10 in 1785?  They did not go to LA with her or with anyone else.  Did Grégoire-Michel choose to remain in France, or had he & younger brother Pierre died before Sep 1784, when their mother was counted by Spanish officials at Nantes without them?

His second wife was 65 years old at the time of the marriage & twice widowed.  Her first husband, in fact, was Hyacinthe's older brother!  Marguerite had come to LA in 1785 aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships from France, & was 2 years older than Hyacinthe.  Needless to say, she gave him no more children. 

Despite what his burial record says, he was 76 years old when he died & was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors, as was his sister, Françoise-Victoire.

37.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Jean AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 92-93, calls him Jean AUCOIN, leur [Michel's & Isabelle's] fils, Jean AUCOIN, their [Michel's & Isabelle's] son; BRDR, 2:35, 694, his marriage record, calls him Jean AUCOIN of St. Malo & resident of Bayou des ecors, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Louis GRISEY, Charles THIBODAU, Michel AUCOIN (probably his brother), & Francois DUGUE.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 515; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 55, 83.  The marriage record of one of his daughters, Emelita Emerante, in BRDR, 3:36, calls him Juan Carlos.  Was Charles his middle name?

Judging by his age in 1757, Marguerite may have been his second wife.  

40.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 14, Family No. 23; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 90-91, calls him Jean-Bte AUCOIN, Juan Bautista AU COING, Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN, provides the names of his parents, his wife's parents, & their wedding year, & details the implements given to him by the Spanish on his arrival in LA.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 515.  

Did Jean-Baptiste & his family go first to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers aboard La Ville d'Archangel & then move to the Opelousas District, or did they go from New Orleans straight to Opelousas, as Jean-Baptiste's father did?  Probably the latter.

41.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 96-97, calls him Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN, leur [Jean-Bte's & Marguerite's] fils, Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN, their [Jean-Baptiste & Marguerite's] son, & says he was born in c1766 but gives no birthplace.  

The identity of his wife is from the baptismal record of son Jean-Baptiste, dated 3 Nov 1801, in BRDR, 2:36 (SJO-1, 162), which calls the maternal grandparents Marianaut [BURKE] & Oysite DAYGLE.  Note that Jean-Baptiste & Rose-Madeleine came to LA aboard the same ship, La Ville d'Archangel.  

42.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls him Joseph AUCOIN, & lists him with his wife & 5 children; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 26-27, Family No. 34; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 20-21, Family No. 28; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 6-7, Family No. 12, calls him Joseph AUCOIN, gives his parents' names, his birth year, details his first marriage, including his wife's parents' names, says she was born in 1748, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Joseph-Jean, baptized 8 Sep 1776, St.-Similien, Nantes, son Francois-Toussaint, baptized 31 Oct 1778, St.-Similien, Nantes, daughter Marie-Josèphe, died age 8 1/2 years & buried 5 Sep 1779, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, daughter Marie-Modeste, baptized 27 Mar 1781, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & daughter Victoire-Claire, baptized 20 Jun 1773, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & details the family's participation in the Leigne-les-bois settlement in Poitou in the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls him Jh AU COING, marin, age 36, on the embarkation list, Josef AUCOIN, on the debarkation list, & Joseph AUCOIN, sailor, age 36, on the complete listing, says he was in the 17th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his first wife & 5 children, details his marriage to his first wife, including the names of his & her parents, & says daughter Isabelle-Jeanne was baptized in 1773 but gives no place; BRDR, 2:35-36, 60 (ASM-2, 28), the record of his second marriage, calls him Josef AUCOIN, widower of Ysabel HENNRY, gives his parents' names, his second wife's parents names & the name of her second husband, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Josef DUPUIS, Fabian AUCOIN, & Jean DAIGLE.  See also See De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:86; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 62, 97, 144, 172; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 507.

Was he a brother of Marie-Josèphe AUCOIN, born in c1757, who came to LA by 1777, the first AUCOIN to reach the colony?  If he was, then how did they become separated when the British deported the Acadians from Île St.-Jean in 1758? 

43.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls him Joseph AU COIN, & lists him with his wife Magdeleine BOUDROT & no children; White, DGFA-1, 43, gives his parents' names & details their marriage; White, DGFA-1, 700-01, gives his parents' & first wife's names, details his remarriage to Madeleine GAUTROT, gives her parents' names, & sets the record straight on who she really was; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 18, Family No. 26, calls him Joseph AUCOIN, says he was born in c1724, does not give his parents' names, gives his first wife's name but not her parents' names or her birthdate, says they were married in c1747 but gives no place of marriage, says he was a widower when he came to France from England on 23 May 1763 aboard La Dorothée with daughters Marie-Blanche & Marie-Anne, says he & his daughters lived at Plouër in 1763 & at Pleudihen in 1764-72, calls his second wife Madeleine GAUTROT, says she was born in c1726 but does not give her parent's names, & details their marriage; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 66-67, calls him Jh AU COIN, journalier, age 60, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Joseph AUCOIN, day laborer, age 60, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 7th Family aboard L'Amitié with his wife & no children.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 501.

Wife Madeleine, called "wid. of AUCOIN," died in St. Martin Parish, part of the old Attakapas District, in Feb 1809, age 90 (she actually was 86).  See Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B: 317 (SM Ch.: v.4, #558).  One wonders if they went to the western prairies after they reached the colony.  There is even the possibility that Joseph did not survive the crossing to LA. 

44.  Not in Wall of Names.  Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 76-77, calls him Jh AU COIN, marin, Joseph AUCOIN, sailor.

DEBRY (who signed), & Dominique GUERIN & Allecendre GAUTROU (who did not sign); Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 86-87, calls him Joseph AUCOIN, père, Josef AU COING, Joseph AUCOIN, father, & details the implements given to him by the Spanish on his arrival in LA.  

Notice how quickly he remarried & started another family.  He & his second wife Anne HÉBERT brought 6 children to LA in 1785, ranging in age from 21 to newborn.  

46.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Joseph AUCOIN; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 5, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, he & his & surviving siblings--brothers Pierre, age 17 & Fabien, age 13, & sister Hélène, age 10--lost their father, no age given, & 3 siblings--sisters Marguerite, age 9, who died in a St.-Malo hospital 4 Mar 1759, Marie, age 11, who died at sea, & brother Théodore, ge 6, who also died at sea--but their mother, age 40, survived; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 874, his marriage record, calls him Joseph AUCOIN, says he & his bride were residents of Saint Coulon, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Paul DUGAS, Pierre HÉBERT, Joseph AUCOIN, & Prosper GIROIR, "who did not sign"; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 86-87, calls him Joseph AUCOIN, pere, Josef AU COING, Joseph AUCOIN, father, & details the implements given to him by the Spanish on his arrival in LA; BRDR, 2:36, 37 (PCP-19, 16), the record of his second marriage, calls him Joseph AUCOIN, an Acadian, gives his parents' names but does not mention his first wife, calls his second wife Marie AUCOIN of Angleterre, gives her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Felix BERNARD, Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN [his father-in-law?], Jacques BLANCHARD, & Alexis AUCOIN.  

His second marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée but probably took place at Bayou des Écores for the simple reason that Bayou des Écores never had a priest of its own, so priests from Pointe Coupée would cross the river and perform baptisms, weddings, & funerals there.  

47.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Joseph AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 86-87, calls him Joseph AUCOIN, son [Joseph's] fils, Joseph AUCOIN, his [Joseph's] son.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 66, 105.

How was her father kin to the other Acadian AUCOINs?

54.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Marie AUCOING femme Michel LE BLANC absent, & lists her with 2 daughters; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 10, Family No. 17; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 571-72, Family No. 645; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 68, Family No. 138, calls her Marie AUCOIN, says she was born in c1737 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, says her husband was born in c1737 but gives no birthplace, says he was a seaman but does not give his parents' names, says that she & Michel were married in c1758 but gives no place of marriage, & provides the birth/baptismal record of son Joseph-Théodore LEBLANC, baptized at St.-Just Chauvigny, Vienne, France, 8 Mar 1775, probably when they were a part of the Poitou settlement in the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 117, Family No. 215, calls her Marie AUCOIN, says she was born in c1737 but gives no birthplace, says that she & Michel LEBLANC were married in c1759 but gives no place of marriage, provides the death-burial record of son Joseph[Théodore] LEBLANC, who died at age 5 & was buried 28 Feb 1780 at St.-Martin, Chantenay, & details her voyage to LA; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, calls her Marie AU COING, femme de Michel LEBLANC, absent, age 48, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, & Marie AUCOIN, wife of Michel LEBLANC, he is absent, age 48, on the complete listings, says that she was in the 4th Family aboard La Bergère with 2 daughters, details her marriage, including her parents' names but not his parents' names, & says they were married c1758 but gives no place of marriage.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 491.

What happened to her husband Michel LEBLANC?  Marie is not listed as his widow on the passenger list of La Bergère, only as his wife.  He was a sailor who was frequently absent from his family.  Perhaps he never bothered to join them in LA.  

Marie's fate also is a mystery.  Note in Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile, 12, that when the Spanish issued implements to Marie's family, her 25-year-old daughter Marie-Josèphe LEBLANC received the equipment, not Marie.  Had Marie died by then?  Otherwise, as head of household, the Spanish authorities would have issued the implements to her.   Note also that Marie is not in any of the Valenzuéla censuses listed in Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98.  Hence my speculation that she died either on the voyage to LA or in New Orleans soon after she arrived.  If I find evidence that she died on the voyage over, despite her listing in Wall of Names I will remove her from this list.

55.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 7L), calls her Marie AUCOING, & lists her with her husband, 2 sons, & a brother-in-law; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 25-26, Family No. 33; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 4, Family No. 7; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 7-8, Family No. 14, calls her Marie AUCOIN, gives her parent's names, says she was born in c1763 but gives no birthplace, & details her marriage; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 157-58, Family No. 284, calls her Marie AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, says she was born in c1753 but gives no birthplace, & details her marriage; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, calls her Marie AU COING, sa [Olivier THÉRRIOT's] femme, age 32, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, & calls her Marie AUCOIN, his [Olivier THÉRIOT's] wife, age 32, on the complete listing, says she was in the 1st Family aboard La Bergère with her husband, 2 sons, & a brother-in-law, details her marriage, including the names of hers & her husbands parents, & says that son Olivier-Marie [THÉRIOT] was baptized in 1778; BRDR, 3:817 (ASC-4, 129), her death/burial record, calls her Mrs. Olivier THERIOT, "age 63, a wid.[sic] bn. Maria DIDA (sic)," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 489.

Despite what the Ascension priest said in her burial record, she did not die a widow.  Her husband Olivier died in Sep 1829, in his mid-70s, a dozen years after she passed. 

Why does she not appear in any of the Bayou Lafourche censuses of the late 1780s-1790s?

56.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 96-97, calls her Marie AUCOIN, leur [Jean-Bte's & Marguerite's] fille, Marie AUCOIN, their [Jean-Bte's & Marguerite's] daughter; BRDR, 2:36, 37, her marriage record, calls her Marie AUCOIN of Angleterre, says the marriage was recorded in Pointe Coupee, & the witnesses to her marriage were Felix BERNARD, Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN [her father?], Jacques BLANCHARD, & Alexis AUCOIN.  

57.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 92-93, calls her Marie AUCOIN, leur [Michel's & Isabelle's] fille, Marie AUCOIN, their [Michel's & Isabelle's] daughter.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 515; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 56, 86, 137.

58.  Not in Wall of Names.  Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 88-89, calls her Marie AUCOIN, sa [Alexandre's] fille, Marie AUCOIN, his [Alexandre's] daughter; BRDR, 2:37, her marriage record, recorded at Pointe Coupee, calls her Marie AUCOIN of St.-Servant, gives her parents' names, his parents' names & origin, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Charles EMOND, Nicolas LAVERGNE, Francois-Xavier BOURG, & Jacques BLANCHAR.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 515.

Although she is not on the Acadian Memorial's Wall of Names, she can be found on their website at <acadianmemorial.org/english/ensembleencoreset.html>; use the link marked Life Lines & then use their search engine to find her. 

59.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 92-93, calls her Marie AUCOIN, leur [Claude's & Marie-Joseph's] fille, Marie AUCOIN, their [Claude's & Marie-Joseph's] daughter.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 339.

60.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Marie-Anastasie AUCOING, femme de Joseph TÉRRIOT, absent, & lists her singly; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 157, Family No. 283, calls her Marie-Anastasie AUCOIN, says she was born c1759, does not give her parents' names but gives her marriage date to Joseph, says he was born c1757 but gives no birthplace for him, provides the birth/baptismal & death/burial records for son Joseph THÉRIOT, fils, baptized 6 Apr 1784 at St.-Similien, Nantes, France, died 20 Apr 1784, probably at St.-Similien, & details her voyage to LA in 1785 without her husband; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Marie-Anastasie AU COING, femme de Jh TÉRRIOT, absent, Marie-Anastasie AUCOING, Marie-Anastasie AUCOIN, wife of Joseph THERIOT, absent, details her first marriage but does not provide her or his parents' names, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to her after she reached LA; BRDR, 2:37, 92 (ASM-2, 64), the record of her second marriage, calls her Maria Anastasia AUCOIN, widow of Josef TÉRIOT, native of Boulogne in Mer, says her second husband was from St.-Malo, does not give her or his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Suliac BLANCHARD & Pedro MONTE; BRDR, 5(rev.):31 (ASM-3, 228), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Anastasie AUCOIN, age 73 yrs., widow of Charles BLANCHARD, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 503; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 43, 60, 93, 145.

Was she the Marie-Anastasie, daughter of Jean AUCOIN & Jeanne TERRIOT, born in c1759?  If so, she would have been a distant cousin of her first husband.  Jean AUCOIN & his family were at Boulogne before they sailed to St.-Malo aboard the brigantine Le Hazard in May 1766.  See Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 12-13, Family No. 21.  If Marie-Anastasie was a daughter of Jean AUCOIN, a younger sister, Anne-Félicité, unmarried in 1785, also crossed on La Bergère, with their parents.  The notation in the record of her second marriage that she was a native of Boulogne, her estimated birth year from the ages given in the passenger list of La Bergère & in her burial record, & the fact that she crossed on the same ship with Jean AUCOIN et al., is compelling evidence that she was one of Jean's daughters. 

Why did her first husband wait to cross on a later ship, the last one in fact, in 1785?  Was she sent ahead with her parents to acquire land while he finished the family's business in France?  He may have crossed on La Caroline to look after his widowed mother.  See the footnote to his profile. 

61.  Wall of Names, 42, calls her Marie-Félicité AU COIN; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 16, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Félicité AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, & says her godparents were Claude THÉRIOT & Marie-Josèphe AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 3, calls her Marie-Félicité AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 82-83, calls her Marie-Félicité AU COIN, sa [Elisabeth DUHON's] fille, Marie-Felicité AUCOIN, her [Elisabeth DUHON's] daughter, & provides her date of birth; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:22-23 (SM Ch.: v.4, #7), the record of her first marriage, calls her Féliciene AUCOIN, calls her husband Joseph FANGUE, gives her & his parents' names, says his parents were "of Carolina," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph DUON & Felez LAPONTE; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:23 (SM Ch.: v.4, #67), the record of her second marriage, calls her Félicité AUCOIN, widr. of Joseph FARKE (FAULK), gives her parents' names but only her husband's father's name, says his father was "of Canada," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Charles GILBAUX, Jean-Baptiste SIMON [her brother-in-law], & David BABINO.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501.

Her second husband's mother's name can be found, among other places, in the baptismal records of sons Paul & Olivier GUIDRY, dated 7 Jun 1798 & 7 May 1800, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:374-75 (SM Ch.: v.5, #61; SM Ch.: v.5, #243).  Although her husband's name does not appear on the Acadian Memorial's Wall of Names, his Acadian nationality, his birth place, & his time in Canada are well documented.  What is not yet known is the year he came to LA.  

62.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls her Marie-Françoise AU COING, & lists her with her parents & a sister; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 7, Family No. 13, her baptismal record, calls her Marie-Francoise AUCOIN, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadians Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls her Marie-Francoise AU COING, sa [Michel's] fille, age 5, on the embarkation list, & Marie-Francoise AUCOIN, his [Michel's] daughter, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 27th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her parents & a sister; NOAR, 6:9, 105 (SLC, M5, 121), her marriage record, calls her Marie Francisca AUCOIN, calls her husband Miguel DUMON, gives her & his parents' names, says she was a native of Nantes & he of St.-Malo, & that the witnesses to the marriage were Juan Luis MAROTEAU, Francisca AUCOIN [her younger sister], Pedro LEFEBRE, & Carlos BLANC.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 30, 161; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 507. 

Where was she in 1788?  Why did she not appear with her family in the Ascension census of that year but appeared with them in the census of 1791?  She could not have been "Michelle, his [Michelle AUCOIN's] son," age 7, in the 1788 census because Michel appears in 1791 again, age 4, which means he was born c1787 & would have been alive in Jan 1788.  Marie-Francoise would have been 7 in Jan 1788, so either the Spanish census taker at Ascension screwed up the count of Michel AUCOIN's 2 surviving children in 1788, or, more likely, the 1788 census citation for this family in Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 30, is a transcription error. 

What happened to her in LA?

63.  Wall of Names, 43, calls her Marie-Jeanne AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 88-89, calls her Marie-Jeanne AUCOIN, sa [Alexandre's] fille, Marie-Jeanne AUCOIN, his [Alexandre's] daughter; BRDR, 2:37, 169, her marriage record, calls her Maria Juana OCOIN, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Eli COMMAU, Maria OCOIN, Santiago ROWEL, & Francisca BURKE.  See also See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 55, 84, 117; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 515.

64.  Wall of Names, 43, calls her Marie-Jeanne AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 14, Family No. 23, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Jeanne AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, & says her godparents were Pierre FOREST, her uncle, & Anastasie AUCOIN, her aunt; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 90-91, calls her Marie-Jeanne AUCOIN, nee le 13 fevrier, Marie-Jeanne AUCOIN, born on 13 February [1785].

65.  Wall of Names, 9, calls her Marie-Josèphe AUCOIN; BRDR, 2:38, 147 (SJA-1, 38a), her marriage record, calls her Marie-Josèphe AUCOIN of Acadia, gives her parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were François LANDRY, Pierre BREAU, Pierre DUPUYS, Michel BOURGEOIS, & Michel BREAU; BRDR, 3:40 (SGA-8, 59), her death/burial record, calls her Marie AUCOIN, age 55, spouse of Joseph BREAU, but does not give her parents' names.  See also De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 6.  

The same couple--Paul AUCOIN & Marie LEBLANC--had an 8-year-old daughter named Marie-Josèphe on Île St.-Jean in Aug 1752.  See De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:86.  Was this the same girl as the Marie-Josèphe who married Joseph BREAUX in LA in Jan 1777?  If so, the Marie-Josèphe counted on the island would have been age 33 at time of her wedding & 68 at the time of her death.  It is likely that Paul & Marie had 2 daughters with the same name, the second one, this one, named after a deceased olde sister. 

She was the first AUCOIN to reach LA & the only one who did not come on one of the 7 ships of 1785.  If she was the daughter of Paul AUCOIN & Marie LEBLANC who lived at Minas & moved to Île St.-Jean in the early 1750s, how did she become separated from her family, whom the British deported from Île St.-Jean to Boulogne, France, in 1758-59, when she was but an infant?  When did she come to LA?  From where?  I need an AUCOIN family historian to help me here.  

66.  Wall of Names, 42, calls her Marie-Magdeleine AU COIN; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 16, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Madeleine AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, calls her mother Isabelle D'AMON, Acadien affeagiste, & says her godparents were Bertrand LE MATELOT & Marie-Anne GEORGE; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 82-83, 84, calls her Marie-Madeleine AU COIN, sa [Elisabeth DUHON's] fille, Marie-Magdelaine AUCOIN, her [Elisabeth DUHON's] daughter, & provides her birth date; NOAR, 4:231, 288, her marriage record, calls her Maria Magadalena OQUAN, native of Belile Amer, calls her husband Jean-Baptisse SIMON, native of Rennes in Britanny, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Josef MARTINEZ & Vicente LLORCA; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:31 (Laf. Ch.: v.1, p.8), her death/burial record, calls her Magdelaine OCOING, dame BERLACHAU m. Jean Baptiste SIMON, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501.

Why does her burial record call her "dame BERLUCHAU"?  Her husband Jean-Baptiste did not die until Nov 1836 (see Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 3:591 (Laf. Ch.:  v.3, p. 100), so his succession record of 15 Jan 1823 was not post-mortem for him but was made likely because of her imminent death.  See Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:31, 847 ( Laf. Ct.Hse.: Succ.#31).  Marie-Madeleine, then, married no one else but Jean-Baptiste SIMON.  In an e-mail to the author, dated 5 Feb 2015, descendant Greg Simon points out that "Apparently there was a census taken in Grand Prairie, LA 1803 where what appears to be Jean-Baptiste and family are recorded, as SIMON BERLUCHEAU.  His wife is listed as Magde, and 7 children also listed with various misspellings of their respective Simon name.  Their ages match up pretty well, although not perfect (which is usually the case with census dating)."  Nevertheless, neither record explains why the name BERLUCHAU/BERLUCHEAU was attached to Jean-Baptiste SIMON, his wife, & his family.  Greg Simon adds:  "I have had a decent amount of success tracking Jean-Baptiste's family back in France 3 generations. Nowhere in that search did I uncover further mention of Berlucheau."

Marie-Madeleine's husband Jean-Baptiste was not an Acadian SIMON but French; his descendants in LA would be known as French Creoles.  For his true ancestry, birth, & baptismal information, see his baptismal record, dated 6 Nov 1763, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:711 (Archives Departemental d'Ille-et-Vilaine, Rennes, France), which calls his parents René [SIMON] & Sébastienne MONIER; & the baptismal record of daughter Marie Urazie, dated 7 May 1800, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:711-12 (SM Ch.: v.5, #251).  Arsenault, Généalogie, 2592, claims that Jean-Baptiste's father René was the brother of Francois SIMON dit SIMONEAUX, who Arsenault claims was Acadian, but Arsenault fails to include René in the children of Francois's parents on pp. 800-02 of his own study.  Besides, the primary information in Hebért, D., cited above, trumps in quality of evidence the undocumented assertions of Arsenault's genealogy.  The SIMONs of LA were French, Spanish, even Swiss, but none of them were Acadian.  And not even the SIMONEAUXs of LA were Acadian.  François SIMONEAU was from Lorraine & married an Acadian in MD before he came to LA; according to Acadian genealogist Stephen A. White, François SIMONEAU never lived in Acadia.  

Here is a possible scenario for this couple's meeting:  Jean-Baptiste came of age & moved from Rennes to Nantes, where he met Marie-Madeleine not long before widow AUCOIN & her daughters decided to emigrate to LA from that port.  Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 84-85, calls him Juan Bautista SIMON/Jean-Baptiste SIMON, says he was among the "Names with no reference on the Embarkation list [of L'Amitié]," & that the Spanish gave him 1 each axe, shovel, & hatchet, & 2 hoes after he reached LA.  This means he may have stowed away on the ship so that he could be with his Acadian girl & her family, or, just as likely, that he was a member of the ship's crew & fell in love with the 17-year-old Acadienne on the voyage to LA.  They married in New Orleans soon after they reached the city.  The young couple settled at Attakapas, where Jean-Baptiste's mother-in-law probably had family.  

A special note to my first cousin/"brother," Timothy Troy SIMON of Houston, TX, & Lake Arthur, LA:  hey, SIMON, this is probably your paternal ancestor.  Our CORMIER ancestors were from Brittany, too, but they got to LA via Acadia.  

67.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie-Magdelaine AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 882, her marriage record, calls her Marie-Magdelaine AUCOIN, gives the names of the bride's & groom's parents & their places of birth, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Joseph AUCOIN, Jean LE BLANC, Mathurin BOURG, & Marain BOUDRAUT, all of whom signed their names; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 94-95, calls her Mie-Magde AUCOIN, sa [Joseph's] femme, Marie-Madeleine AUCOIN, Marie-Magdelaine AUCOIN, his [Joseph's] wife. 

68.  Wall of Names, 42, calls her Marie-Magdelaine AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadians Families in Exile 1785, 86-87, calls her Marie-Magdelaine AUCOIN, sa [Joseph's] fille, Marie-Magdelaine AUCOIN, his [Joseph's] daughter; BRDR, 2:38, 122, her marriage record, calls her Marie AUCOIN of St.-Malo, France, calls him Joseph BOURG of St.-Malo, France, notes that the marriage was recorded in Pointe Coupee, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Gabriel AUCOIN [her brother], Maturin-Pierre BOURG, & François DUGUE.  

Since she & her husband's second wife were both called Marie AUCOIN, it is easy to confuse them.  Only the happy fact that the priests at Pointe Coupée & Baton Rouge listed his parents each time he was married allows me to sort out this mess ... unless we are talking about 2 different Joseph BOURGs here!

69.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls her Marie-Modeste [AUCOIN], & lists her with her parents & 4 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 6-7, Family No. 12, calls her Marie-Modeste AUCOIN, provides her birth/baptismal record, & details her family's journey to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls her Marie-Modeste, sa [Jh AU COING's] fille, age 4, on the embarkation list, Maria Modesta, si [Josef AUCOIN's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Marie-Modeste AUCOIN, his [Joseph AUCOIN's] daughter, age 4, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 17th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents & 4 siblings; BRDR, 2:37, 96 (ASM-2, 62), her marriage record, calls her Maria Modesta AUCOIN of Nantes, France, gives her parents' names, says her husband was from Nantes, France, gives his parents'  names, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Josef AUCOIN & Juan RICHARD; BRDR, 3:40 (ASM-3, 75), her death/burial record, calls her Maria Modesta AUCOIN, age 30 yrs., married to Juan BLANCHARD, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 507; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 62, 97, 144, 172.  

70.  Wall of Names, 42, calls her Marie-Reyne AU COIN; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 3, her baptismal record, calls her Marie-Reiné AUCOIN, & gives her parents' but not her godparents' names; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 82-83, calls her Marie-Reyne AU COIN, sa [Elisabeth DUHON's] fille, Marie-Reine AUCOIN, her [Elizabeth DUHON's] daughter; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:23-24, 704, her marriage record, calls her Marie-Rayne (Reiné) AUCOIN "de Nantes, France of St.-Similien Parish," calls her husband Mathieu SELLAR, gives her & his parents' names, calls his father Mathieu CELLAR & says his parents were "living in S. Carolina," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Louis CHEMIN (bede de cette paroisse, or church sacristan), Joel WEST, & Charlit DUON.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501. 

In the baptismal record of son Alexandre SELLERS, dated 7 May 1800, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:704 (SM Ch.: v.5, #245), she is called Regina AUCOIN "of Belle Isle en Mer, France."   She was born at Nantes, but her parents may have moved to Belle-Île-en-Mer off the southern coast of Brittany. 

71.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Mathurin AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 92-93, calls him Mathurin AUCOIN, leur [Claude's & Marie-Joseph's] fils, Mathurin AUCOIN, their [Claude's & Marie-Joseph's] son; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:24, 485, his marriage record, calls him Mathurin AUCOIN, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Jean ROBERT or Pierre OCOIN (his brother?), Huber JANY fils, Jean AUB__, & Amable BERTRAND (brother-in-law).  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 339.

72.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Mathurin AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 18-20, Family No. 27, his birth/baptismal record; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 86-87, calls him Mathurin AUCOIN, son [Joseph's] fils, Mathurin AUCOIN, his [Joseph's] son; BRDR, 2:38, 223 (ASM-2, 44), the record of what may have been his second marriage, calls him Maturino AUCOIN of St.-Malo, France, says his wife was from "Marlaix in Britany," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Pierre HÉBERT & Francois AUCOIN; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:17 (Thib.Ch.: v. 1, #686), his death/burial record, calls him Mathurin Jean AUCOIN, says he died at age 63 yrs. but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 66, 105, 131.  

Evidence of an earlier marriage to Madeleine AUCOIN can be found in the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of sons Jean-Baptiste & Joseph-Firmin in BRDR, 2:36 (SJO-1, 26; SJO-4, 2).  Jean-Baptiste's baptismal record, dated 28 Apr 1794, gives him a birth date of 15 May 1792, & calls his parents Maturino [AUCOIN] & Magdalaine OCOIN of Lafourche.  Joseph-Firmin's baptismal record, dated 18 Apr 1794, gives no birth date, & calls the his parents Maturain [AUCOIN] & Magdalaine OCOIN; his burial record, dated 27 Sep 1794, says he died at age 20 months & calls his parents Maturain O'COIN & Magdalena [no surname given] of Lafourche.  No other Mathurin AUCOIN in LA fits the bill.  These baptisms & burial were performed by a Baton Rouge priest because Bayou des Écores never had a priest of its own, so priests from either Pointe Coupée, across the river, or Baton Rouge, just to the south (which got its own church in 1793), administered the sacraments at Bayou des Écores while the Acadians still lived there. 

Who was this Madeleine AUCOIN?  I cannot account for her in Wall of Names & other sources that list Acadians immigrants who settled in LA.  Was she actually Mathurin's "second" wife, Marie-Madeleine DAROIS, with whom he lived before they were officially married in Nov 1799?  Probably not.  The Ascension & Lafourche censuses of 1788, 1791, 1795, 1797, & 1798 show her unmarried & living with her family.  See Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 31, 66, 104, 120, 163.  

Judging from the Lafourche censuses of 1795, 1797, & 1798, Mathurin's first wife, if he had such a wife, had died by December 1795, perhaps in childbirth; the censuses show him with his brothers at Lafourche & do not show a wife or child with him.  His putative first wife may have died giving birth to Joseph-Firmin, though the boy's burial record does not say that his mother was deceased.  What happened to son Jean-Baptiste?  Why was he not in the Lafourche censuses with his widowed father?  Very confusing.  I need an AUCOIN family historian to help me with this fellow.

73.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Mathurin AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 88-89, calls him Mathurin AUCOIN, sons [Alexandre's] fils, Mathurin AUCOIN, his [Alexandre's] son.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 515.

What happened to him in LA?  Did he survive the crossing from France?

74.  Not in Wall of Names.  Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 84-85, calls him Mathurino Juan AU COING/Mathurin-Jean AUCOIN, says he was among the "Names with no reference on the Embarkation list [of L'Amitié]," & lists the implements the Spanish gave him after he reached LA.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 25, 58, 89.

What does "no reference on the Embarkation list" mean?  Was he a stowaway?  If so, why?  His surname is Acadian, so why would he have stowed away on a ship that was hired to carry Acadians?

He may have been a younger brother of Fabien AUCOIN, who crossed on La Bergère & with whom he lived for a time in the late 1780s.  Mathurin's mother was a BLANCHARD, so he likely was a kinsman of Élie BLANCHARD as well. 

He was not married by age 41, so chances are he never did.  I have found no marriage record for him.  

Although he is not on the Acadian Memorial's Wall of Names, he can be found on their website at <acadianmemorial.org/english/ensembleencoreset.html>; use the link marked Life Lines & then use their search engine to find him. 

75.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls him Michel AU COING, & lists him with his wife & 2 daughters; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 24, Family No. 32, calls him Michel AUCOIN, born about 1755 but gives no birthplace, son of Pierre AUCOIN, & says he "arrived at St. Malo from Cap Francois [Haiti] on October 1, 1769 on the ship, Le Americain," & that he resided with the family of Jean AUCOIN [brother? cousin?] at St.-Servan from 1769-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 7, Family No. 13, calls him Michel AUCOIN, says he was born in c1755 in the Parish of Saint-Joseph in Acadia, which was Rivière-aux-Canards, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, including his wife's parents' names, says he was resident of the Parish of Sainte-Croix of Nantes at the time of his marriage, that he was a joiner, that his wife was a former resident of the Parish of Saint-Similien & resident of the Parish of Sainte-Croix at the time of the marriage, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Marie-Francoise, baptized 1 Apr 1780, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, daughter Louise-Adélaïde, baptized 27 Sep 1781, St.-Nicolas, Nantes, died age 1 & buried 21 Sep 1782, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & daughter Rosalie, baptized 10 Apr 1784, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls him Michel AU COING, menuisier, age 30, on the embarkation list, & Michel AUCOIN, woodworker, age 30, on the complete listing, says he was in the 27th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his wife & 2 daughters, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage, & says child Rosalie was baptized in 1784 but gives no place of baptism.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 507; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 30, 161.

His movements during Le Grand Dérangement--from Minas to an English seaboard colony to St.-Domingue to France--were most unusual.  What was his relationship with Jean AUCOIN at St.-Servan? 

Where were daughters Marie-Francoise & Rosalie-Adélaïde in the Ascension census of 1788?  

76.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Michel AUCOIN.  See also <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 1; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 8, 22-24, Families No. 15 & 31.  

77.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Michel AUCOIN.

78.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Natalie [AUCOING], & lists her with her parents & 2 sisters; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 25-26, Family No. 33, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Natalie-Marie AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, says she was goddaughter of Firmin AUCOIN (her older brother) & Madeleine AUCOIN (her aunt), & that the family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Chatellerault, 4; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 8, calls her Natalie AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, calls her Natalie, sa [Olivier AU COING's] fille, age 17, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debaraktion list, & Natalie AUCOIN, his [Olivier AUCOIN's] daughter, age 17, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 2nd Family aboard La Bergère with her parents & 2 sisters; BRDR, 2:38, 364 (ASC-2, 10), her marriage record, calls her Natalia AUCOIN, does not give her or her husband's parents' names, & says the witness to her marriage was Ambroise GARIDET; BRDR, 5(rev.):27 (ASC-4, 288), her death/burial record, calls her Anatalie AUCOIN, age 72 yrs., a native of St. Malo, but does not give her parents' names nor mention a husband.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 56, 85, 137, 158.  

79.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls him Olivier AUCOING, & lists him with his wife & 3 daughters; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 25-26, Family No. 33; Robichaux, Acadians in Chatellerault, 4, Family No. 7; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 7-8, Family No. 14; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, calls him Olivier AU COING, charpentier, age 59, on the embarkation list, Olivier AUCOING, on the debarkation list, & Olivier AUCOIN, carpenter, age 59, on the complete listing, says he was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Bergère with his second wife & 3 daughters, details his second marriage, including the names of his parents, his first wife's name, & his second wife's parents, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to him & his family after they reached LA; BRDR, 3:40-41 (ASM-3, 82), his death/burial record, calls him Olivier AUCOIN of Acadia, married to Cecilia RICHARD, gives his parents' names, says they were from "St. Charles parish in Acadia," which was Grand-Pré, but does not give his age at the time of his death. 

80.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Perpetué AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 29-30, Family No. 38, calls her Perpétué AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, gives her birth date but not her birth place, details her family's repatriation to France, says her family resided at Plouër from 1763-72, & details their voyage to LA in 1785; BRDR, 2:38, 623 (PCP-19, 14), her marriage record, calls her Paspétué AUCOIN of Bristol in Angleterre, says her husband was from "Belleite Amere, Diocese of Vemne," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Jacque RAOULE, Joseph COMMO, Jean-Baptiste AUCOIN, & Jean-Baptiste DAIGRE; BRDR, 5(rev.):33 (SJO-11, 47), her death/burial record, calls her Perpétué AUCOIN, "age 74 yrs., wife of Joseph RICHARD," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 524.  

Though her marriage was recorded in Pointe-Coupée, it was performed probably at Bayou des Écores, where her family settled & where there was never a priest.

How was her father kin to the other Acadian AUCOINs?

81.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Perpetué AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 11-12, Family No. 20, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Perpétué AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, & says her godparents were Jean LEBLANC & Francoise COMMAUX; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:19 (Opel. Ch.: v.1, p.77), her death/burial record, calls her Perpétué AUCOIN, spouse of ____ NORMAND, but does not give her parents' names.  

82.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls him Pierre [AUCOING], & lists him with his widowed father & brother; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls him Pierre, son [Antoine AU COING's] fils, charpentier, age 20, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, & Pierre AUCOIN, his [Antoine AUCOIN's] son, carpenter, age 20, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 12th Family aboard La Bergère with his widowed father & brother; BRDR, 2:34, 39 (ASC-2, 4), his marriage record, calls him Pierre AUCOIN, does not give his or his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Olivier TÉRRIO & Ambroise GARIDEL.  See also Robichaux, Acadians in Chatellerault, 3-4, Family No. 6; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 489; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 27, 57, 158. 

The clue that this is the Pierre AUCOIN who married Félicité AUCOIN is the couple's resident next to this Pierre AUCOIN's brother Louis at Ascension in 1788 & Assumption in 1795.  See Robichaux, pp. 27, 57.  Did he & his wife ever have children?  I have found none in the Baton Rouge diocesan church records of their day.  See BRDR, vols. 2 & 3.  A childless couple was most unusual among Acadians.

83.  Not in Wall of Names.  Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile, 28-29, does not include him on the embarkation list, calls him Pierre AUCOING, on the debarkation list, & Pierre AUCOIN, no age or occupation given, on the complete listing, says he was among "Individuals listed' aboard La Bergère with no one else, & lists the implements the Spanish to him after he reached LA.  

Was he a stowaway aboard La Bergère?  Is this a double listing for Pierre, son of Antoine AUCOIN, in Family No. 12 aboard  La BergèreWall of Names seems to think so, but I am not sure of it.

What happened to him in LA?

84.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Pierre AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 11, Family No. 18; NOAR, 4:161, 228 (SLC, M5, 45), the record of his first marriage, calls him Pedro OCUIAN, native of Acadia, calls his wife Maria  HEVERT, native of St.-Malo in France, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Vicente LLORCA & Josef MARTINEZ; BRDR, 2:38, 341 (SGA-14, 13), the record of his second marriage, calls him Pedro AUCOIN, gives his & his wife's parents' names but not his first wife's name, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Simon Pedro DEGRE & Juan Bautista TRAHAN; BRDR, 2:38 (SGA-8, 16 #80), his death/burial record, calls him Pedro AUCOIN, but does not give his parents' or wives' names.

Arsenault, Généalogie, 1089, the Grand-Pré section, says his father Charles was born in 1723, son of Pierre [AUCOIN] & his second wife Catherine COMEAU, says Charles married Madeleine, daughter of Pierre TRAHAN & Jeanne DAIGLE of Pigiguit, at Rivière-aux-Canards in Nov 1753, but does not list their children. 

His first or middle name may have been Charles.  See the marriage record of son Pierre Élie, dated 11 Oct 1819, in BRDR, 3:36, 168 (SGA-14, 174), which calls the groom's father Charles.

Pierre's estimated birth year is based on the age given in his burial record, not the passenger list of La Ville d'Archangel

85.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Pierre AUCOIN; BRDR, 3:41 (ASM-3, 129), calls him Pierre-Paul AUCOIN, & gives his age at the time of his death, which conforms exactly to the estimated birth year used here.

86.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Pierre AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 13-14, Family No. 22, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Pierre-Firmain AUCOIN, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Simon AUCOIN & Marie AUCOIN; BRDR, 2:38, 213 (SJO-3, 15), the record of his first marriage, calls him Pedro Firmin AUCOIN, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says his parents were from St.-Malo & her from "Bellille en Mer," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan Bautista OCOIN & Francisco TRAHAN.

See BRDR, 3:41, for speculation on the identity of a second wife.

87.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Pierre AUCOIN; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:27.

88.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls her Rose-Adélaïde AU COING, & lists her with her parents & a sister; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 7, Family No. 13, her baptismal record, calls her Rosalie AUCOIN, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls her Rosa Adélaïde, sa [Michel AU COING's] fille, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, & Rosa Adélaïde AUCOIN, dgtr. [of Michel AUCOIN], a nursling, on the complete listing, says she was in the 27th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her parents & a sister, &, calling her Rosalie, says she was baptized in 1784 but gives no place of baptism.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 507; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 30, 161. 

There was no debarkation list for Le St.-Rémi unfortunately, so she may not even have survived the crossing to LA.  This ship was the most overcrowded of the Seven Ships from France, & a number of children died as a result, plus smallpox attacked the passengers soon after they reached LA.  If I find evidence that she died on the crossing & was buried at sea, despite her inclusion in Wall of Names I will, sadly, remove her from this list.  The fact that her parents named a daughter born to them in Sep 1791 Rosalie indicates that this Rosalie died young.  See the birth/baptismal record of Rosalia AUCOIN in BRDR, 2:39 (ASC-5, 68), dated 26 Jul 1792.

89.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Rose-Anastasie AUCOIN.  See also Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 13-14, Family No. 22; BRDR, 2:39, 343, her marriage record.

90.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Rose-Félicité AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadian in St.-Malo, 29-30, Family No. 38, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Rose-Félicité AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, says her godparents were Laurent TRAHAN & Ozite-Perpétué AUCOIN, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785. 

What happened to her in LA?  How was her father kin to the other Acadian AUCOINs?

91.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Rose-Magdelaine AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 13-14, Family No. 22.

What happened to her in LA. 

92.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Simon AUCOIN; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 29-30, Family No. 38, calls him Simon AUCOIN, says he was born in c1728 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, says he married his wife in England in c1758, gives her parents' names, & details the birth/baptisms of his 6 children, all daughters, born in England & France between 22 Oct 1759 & 23 Nov 1773, says he & his family were repatriated to France, reached St.-Malo from England aboard La Dorothée on 23 May 1763, says they lived at Plouër from 1762-72, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785. 

One wonders how he was kin to the other AUCOINs of LA & what happened to him there. 

93.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls her Victoire-Claire [AUCOIN], & lists her with her parents & 4 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 6-7, Family No. 12, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Victoire-Claire AUCOIN, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls her Victoire-Claire, sa [Jh AU COING's] fille, age 2, on the embarkation list, Victoria Clara, si [Josef AUCOIN's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Victoire-Claire AUCOIN, his [Joseph AUCOIN's] daughter, age 2, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 17th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents & 4 siblings; BRDR, 3:42, 119 (ASM-2, 109), her marriage record, calls her Victoria Clara AUCOIN of Chantenais, Nantes, France, gives her parents' names, says her mother was deceased at the time of her marriage, says her husband was from St. Nicolas, Nantes, gives his parents' names, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Josef Antonio SOLAR & Ambrosio HÉBERT.  See also BRDR, 3:46, 119 (ASM-2, 244), the record of her husband's second marriage, which calls him Carlos Maria BOUDRAUX, widower of Victoria Clara AUCOIN.

94.  Not in Wall of Names.  Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 1152-53, her marriage record, calls her Anne AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, says they were from "the parish of St. Charles in Acadie," which was Grand-Pré, that both of her parents were deceased at the time of the marriage, that she was resident of St-Clément, Nantes, at the time of the marriage, calls her husband Joseph CHERAMY, cobbler, native of Mauron, diocese of St.-Malo & resident of St.-Vincent, Nantes, "for more than a year," but does not give his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Michel AUCOIN [her brother, who signed], Jean AUCOIN [her paternal uncle, who did not sign], Jean-Baptiste LANDRY [her godfather & uncle by marriage, who did not sign], Olivier AUCOIN [her first cousin once removed, who did not sign], Louis CASSIN, master cobbler [who signed], & the bride also signed.

The baptismal record of son Joseph CHERAMIE, fils, dated 7 May 1786, in BRDR, 2:186 (ASC-5, 6), calls her Ana OCUAN & says that he was born on 7 Apr 1786, so she had to be in LA by then.  For her husband's remarriage at Ascension on 2 Oct 1786, see BRDR 2:186 (ASC-2, 5), which calls him an Acadian.  His new wife, Chartou MIGUEL, that is, Gertrude-Olive MICHEL, also was called an Acadian, which she was.  As the record of his first marriage indicates, Joseph was a Frenchman from Brittany, not an Acadian.  

She & her husband are not found on the passenger lists of any of the 7 Ships of 1785.  So when did they reach New Orleans?  And on which vessel?  The birth date of their son indicates that they came to LA with the 7 Ships' expedition.  Their going to Lafourche, the destination of the majority of the 7 Ships passengers, does not help to determine the vessel on which they arrived.  Joseph's second wife had crossed on Le St.-Rémi.  Is this a clue?
