Acadians Who Found Refuge in Louisiana, February 1764-early 1800s

BOUDREAUX

[BOO-drow, boo-DROW]

ACADIA

Michel Boudrot, born probably at Cougnes, near La Rochelle, France, in c1600, came to Port-Royal in the late 1630s and married Michelle Aucoin at Port-Royal in c1641Michelle was sister of Jeanne Aucoin, wife of fellow colonist François GirouardMichel Boudrot served as one of the first syndics (similar to a present-day mayor) of Port-Royal.  In 1684, he was serving as lieutenant général civil et criminel du Port-Royal, or general representative of the King for justice, at the colony's capital.  In August 1688, he gave up his post as lieutenant général because of his "great age"; he was 88.  He died not long afterwards.  His wife Michelle, two decades his junior, lived until December 1706, when she died at Port-Royal, age 85.  She and Michel raised 11 children.  Their four daughters married into the Robichaud, Thériot, Bourg, Babineau, and Poirier families.  Their seven sons, all born at Port-Royal, created families of their own: 

Oldest son Charles, born in c1646, married Renée, daughter of Antoine Bourg and Antoinette Landry, at Port-Royal in c1672.  They had eight children before she died.  Charles remarried to Marie, daughter of Jean Corporon and Françoise Savoie, probably at Port-Royal in c1686.  Charles and his family settled at Ste.-Famille, Pigiguit, in the Minas Basin.  In all, Charles fathered 20 children, including eight sons who married into the Rivet, Corporon, Sonnier, Vincent, Hébert, Brassaud, Doiron, and LeBlanc families.  Charles's daughters married into the Trahan, Babin, Thibodeau, Bugeaud, and Girouard families.  

Jean, born in c1655, married Marguerite, daughter of Jacques Bourgeois and Jeanne Trahan, at Port-Royal in c1676.  They settled at Chignecto, but Jean died a few years after his marriage and fathered no sons.  Jean's daughter married into the Arseneau family.  

Abraham, born in c1657, married Cécile, daughter of Charles Melanson and Marie Dugas, at Port-Royal in c1686 and remained at Port-Royal, where he was a prominent merchant and an erstwhile spy for Acadia's Governor Villebon during King William's War.  Abraham fathered six children, including three sons who married into the Landry and Broussard families.  His daughters married into the Gaudet, Mius d'Entremont, and Bourg families.  Abraham died by c1703, when Cécile remarried at Port-Royal. 

Michel, fils, born in c1659, moved to Chignecto and married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Thomas Cormier and Marie-Madeleine Girouard, at Chignecto in c1690.  Michel, fils fathered seven children, including four sons who married into the Caissie, Gaudet, Belliveau, and Hébert families.  His daughters married into the Chiasson, Lambert, and LeBlanc families.  

Olivier, born in c1661, married Elisabeth, also called Isabelle, daughter of Claude Petitpas and Catherine Bugaret, at Port-Royal in c1686 and also remained at Port-Royal   Olivier died by 1690, when his wife remarried.  He fathered only a single son, who probably died young.  

Claude, born in c1663, married Anne-Marie, daughter of Pierre Thibodeau and Jeanne Thériot, at Port-Royal in c1682 and moved to Rivière-des-Habitants in the Minas Basin.  He remarried to Catherine, daughter of Jean Meunier and Marguerite Housseau, probably at Minas in c1700, and remarried again--his third marriage--to Madeleine, another daughter of Jean Corporon, and widow of Bernard Doucet dit Laverdure and François Leclerk dit Laverdure, at Port-Royal in August 1735.  Claude fathered 21 children by his first two wives, including nine sons who married into the Hébert, Préjean, Comeau, Aucoin, Doiron, Thibodeau, Gautrot, and Doucet families.  His daughters married into the Hébert, Aucoin, LeBlanc, Daigre, and Doiron families.  Claude died at Grand-Pré in March 1740, in his late 70s.  

Youngest son François, born in c1666, married Madeleine, daughter of Jean Belliveau and Jeanne Bourg, at Port-Royal in c1692 and remained for a time at Port-Royal with two of his older brothers.  He fathered nine children, including three sons who married into the Dugas, Petitot dit Saint-Seine, Melanson, and Belliveau families, and perhaps into the LeBlanc family as well.  His daughters married into the LeBlanc, Michel, and Dugas families.  François died at Port-Royal in September 1733, age 66

 By the early 1700s, then, Michel Boudrot's many sons could be found at Port-Royal, Chignecto, Grand-Pré, and Pigiguit, where their children grew up and had children of their own.  Soon after the British gained possession of the colony in 1714, Boudrots spread out even farther from the family base at Port-Royal.  Some of them left peninsula Nova Scotia and moved to Île St.-Jean, today's Prince Edward Island, and Île Royale, now Cape Breton Island, probably to escape British authority.  In August 1714, Charles dit Charlot, a navigator and shipbuilder, son of Abraham of Port-Royal, received permission from French authorities at Louisbourg to settle on Île Royale; he and his family were counted at Port-Toulouse, now St. Peter's, Cape Breton Island, in 1717.  He died there nine years later.  Other Boudrots were counted at Port-Toulouse in the same census, including Charles dit Charlot's brother Michel dit Miquetau, a navigator and shipbuilder, and their uncle François, a shipbuilder.  François dit Manne, Charles dit Charlot's brother and a shipbuilder as well, moved to Île St.-Jean in the early 1720s and then on to Port-Toulouse by 1722, where he joined his brothers.  One of Michel, fils's sons, Claude le jeune, a navigator, moved from Chignecto to Port-Toulouse by 1724, and then moved on to Tracadie near Havre-St.-Pierre on Île St.-Jean in the early 1730s.  Other Boudrots from Port-Royal and Chignecto also settled at Port-Toulouse.  Their cousins from Minas and Pigiguit went to the Maritime islands as well.  By the early 1750s, Boudrots could be found not only at Tracadie but also at Port-La-Joye, Havre-St.-Pierre, Grande-Anse, Anse Pinnet, La Traverse, Rivière du Nord-Est, and Rivière-du-Moulin-à-Scie on Île St.-Jean, and at Port-d'Orléans and Louisbourg on Île Royale.

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

By 1755, descendants of Michel Boudrot could be found in nearly every major Acadian community: at Annapolis Royal, Grand-Pré and Pigiguit in the Minas Basin, Chignecto at the head of the Bay of Fundy, and on Île St.-Jean and Île Royale.

LE GRAND DÉRANGEMENT

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

LOUISIANA:  WESTERN SETTLEMENTS

Boudrots were among the earliest Acadians to seek refuge in Louisiana.  The first of them may have been exiled to Massachusetts and ended up in Halifax at the end of the war.  Also in that early group to go to Louisiana was a widowed Boudrot and her family.  They came to the colony with the Broussard dit Beausoleil party from Halifax via Cap-Français, St.-Domingue, in February 1765.  After a short respite in the city, they followed the Broussards across the Atchafalaya Basin to the Attakapas District and helped created La Nouvelle-Acadie on the banks of Bayou Teche:

Jean Boudrot, age 25, wife Marguerite Guilbeau of Port-Royal, age 19, and son Jean-Charles dit Donat, age 4, followed the Guilbeaus to the lower Mississippi valley.  Jean and Marguerite had no more children in Louisiana.  Jean died at Attakapas in c1768; he was only in his late 20s.  Jean-Charles dit Donat was his only child and carried on the line in the Attakapas District.  

Anne Boudrot, age 55, widow of Charles Bourg of Île St.-Jean, came to the colony with five children, two sons and three daughters, ages 18 to 12, all born on Île St.-Jean.  Evidently Anne and her three youngest children retreated to Cabanocé on the river in the autumn of 1765 to escape an epidemic that killed dozens of their fellow Teche valley Acadians.  By the late 1760s, however, Anne had returned to the upper Teche to live with married daughter Gertrude, who had remained there; Anne's sons followed her back to the prairies and settled in the Opelousas District, where two of her other daughters also settled.  

Descendants of Jean-Charles dit Donat BOUDREAUX (c1763-1807; Michel, François, Michel)

Jean-Charles dit Donat, only son of Jean Boudrot and Marguerite Guilbeau, was born at Halifax in the early 1760s, though a Louisiana church record hints that he may have been born in Boston Donat was still a boy when his father died at Attakapas.  He grew up as an only child in the Attakapas District, raised by his mother and stepfather, Simon LeBlanc, who also had come to Louisiana with the Broussards in February 1765.  Donat married Anne-Dorothée, called Dorothée, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Comeaux and Anastasie Savoie of the Opelousas District, in c1785Donat and Dorothée, a native of Opelousas, settled along upper Bayou Vermilion, at the northern edge of the Attakapas District.  Their daughters married into the Blanchet, Broussard, Langlinais, and Mouton families.  Donat died at this home on the upper Vermilion in June 1807; he was only 45 years oldDorothéeremarried too Jean-Louis Langlinais of St.-Servan, France, who became one of her daughter's father-in-lawDonat's sons settled in Lafayette and Vermilion parishes.

1

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste, called Jean, born at Opelousas in March 1788, married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Marin dit Capuchon Mouton and his first wife, French Creole Marie-Josèphe Lambert, at Attakapas in October 1804; Marguerite was the sister of Jean's brother-in-law, Salvator Mouton.  Jean and Marguerite settled at Bas Vermilion, or the lower Vermilion, south of present-day Lafayette.  Their son Jean Léon was born in St. Martin Parish in October 1805, Joseph Drosin, called Drosin, in October 1807, François Onésime, called Onésime, in July 1810, Charles Sosthène, called Sosthène, in June 1813, Symphorien in April 1815, Toussaint in October 1819, and Sevenne was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, at age 13 months in May 1830.  Their daughters married into the Blanchet, Broussard, De Franc, Roy, and Suzanne families.  Jean's succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in November 1841; he would have been 53 years old that year.  In October 1850, the federal census taker in Vermilion Parish counted 19 slaves on Widow Jean Boudreaux's farm in Ward One of the parish's Western District, next to Sevenne Boudreaux; these probably were Marguerite Mouton's slaves. 

1a

Drosin married Adélaïde, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Duhon and Élisabeth Broussard, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1826.  Their son Euclide was born in Lafayette Parish in July 1827, Edgard was baptized at the Vermilionville church, age 7 1/2 months, in October 1834, and Sevenne le jeune was born in May 1843.  They also had a son named Jules.  Their daughters married into the Melançon, Mouton, and Servat families.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 5 slaves--3 males and 2 females, all black, ranging in age from 50 to 10--on Drauzin J. Boudreaux's farm next to Euclide Boudreaux in the parish's Western District.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 7 slaves--3 females and 4 males, 3 blacks and 4 mulattoes, ages 70 to 1, living in a single house--on Drauzin Boudreaux's farm next to Chs. Marin Mouton and near Augustin Boudreau, probably his uncle.

Euclide married Onésima, also called Lisemène, daughter of Onésime Baudoin and Marcelitte Dartes, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in April 1847.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted a single slave--a 24-year-old black male--on Euclide Boudreau's farm between Drauzin J. Boudreau and Bélonie Bodouin in the parish's Western District.  Euclide died in Lafayette Parish in August 1853; he was only 26 years old; his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse that month. 

Edgard married Elmire or Elvira, daughter of French Creole Jean Dartes and his Acadian wife Marie Mouton, at the Abbeville church, Vermilion Parish, in February 1854.  Their son Marcus was born near Abbeville in January 1859, and Séverin in September 1862.  Edgard may have remarried to fellow Acadian Émilie Guidry.  Their son Euclyde was born near Abbeville in September 1866. 

During the War of 1861-65, Sevenne le jeune, a resident of Vermilion Parish at the time of his enlistment, may have served as a corporal in Company A of the 8th Regiment Louisiana Cavalry, raised in Rapides Parish, which fought in Louisiana.  Sevenne le jeune married Euphémie, daughter of fellow Acadians Onésime Melançon and Marie Prejean, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1867 (according to local records, the marriage was not civilly recorded until February 1869). 

Jules married cousin Marie Azélima or Angelina, daughter of Placide Montet and his Acadian wife Azelie Duhon, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in June 1865.  Their son Philippe Mozart was born near Youngsville in October 1868. 

1b

Jean Léon married Pauline, daughter of Hippolyte Mallet and Céleste Fabre of Baton Rouge, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in August 1828.  Their son Jean Léo was baptized at the Vermilionville church, age 3 months, in September 1829, Marcel at age 5 months in April 1833, and Dupréville at age 14 months in January 1835.  

1c

François Onésime married Anastasie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Trahan and his Creole wife Césaire Baudoin, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in April 1830.  Their son Onésime, fils was born in Lafayette Parish in March 1834, and Théosime was baptized at the Vermilionville church, age 5 months, in March 1836.  François Onésime died by November 1840, when his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse; he would have been only 30 years old that year. 

Onésime, fils may have married fellow Acadian Ezilda Broussard and settled near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, in the late 1850s.

During the War of 1861-65, Théosime, called Théorime in Confederate records, may have served in Company K of the Consolidated 18th Regiment and Yellow Jacket Battalion Louisiana Infantry, which fought in Louisiana.

1d

Charles Sosthène married Anastasie, daughter of fellow Acadians Éloi Broussard and Marguerite Thibodeaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in August 1831.  Their son Charles Sosthène, fils was baptized at the Vermilionville church, age 2 1/2 months, in October 1834.  Their daughter married into the Guidry family.  In November 1850, the federal census taker in Vermilion Parish counted 8 slaves--3 males and 5 females, all black, ranging in age from 40 to 1--on Sosthènes Boudreaux's farm in Ward Four of the parish's Western District.  Charles Sosthène, père died near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, in June 1856; he was only 43 years old. 

Charles Sosthène, fils married fellow Acadian Elisa Prejean and settled near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, by the mid-1850s.  Their daughter married into the Hardy family.  In 1860, the federal census taker in Vermilion Parish counted 3 slaves--2 males and a female, all black, ages 27, 15, and 2, living in 1 house--on Sustain Boodro's farm in the parish's Western District; this probably was Charles Sosthène, fils.  Charles Sosthène, fils died near Abbeville in December 1868; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Sosthène died "at age 34 yrs.," so this was him.  Did he father any sons? 

1e

Symphorien married Joséphine, another daughter of Éloi Broussard and Marguerite Thibodeaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in April 1834.  Their son Théosime was born in Lafayette Parish in April 1835, Théodule in April 1839, Symphorien, fils in March 1841, and Jules in June 1843.  Their daughters married into the Lemaire and Trahan families.  In October 1850, the federal census taker in Vermilion Parish counted a single slave--a 40-year-old mulatto male--on Widow Eyfroyin Boudreaux's farm next to Sevenne Boudreaux in Ward One of the parish's Western District; these probably were Joséphine Broussard's slaves.  

During the War of 1861-65, Théosime, called Théorime in Confederate records, may have served in Company K of the Consolidated 18th Regiment and Yellow Jacket Battalion Louisiana Infantry, which fought in Louisiana.

Théodule may have married Carmelite Lemaire and settled near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, in the early 1860s.  Their son Emmard was born in October 1866. 

Symphorien, fils may have married fellow Acadian Clémence LeBlanc at the Abbeville church, Vermilion Parish, in July 1865.  They settled near Youngsville.  Their son Phineas was born in December 1866. 

1f

In October 1850, the federal census taker in Vermilion Parish counted 5 slaves--3 males and 2 females, all black, ranging in age from 18 to 1--on Sevenne Boudreaux's farm between Widow Eyfroyin Boudreaux and Widow Jean Boudreaux in Ward One of the parish's Western District.  Sevenne married Euphémie Roy probably in Vermilion Parish in the early 1850s.  Their son Sevenne, fils was born near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, in May 1856, and Charles Sosthène le jeune in May 1861.  They also had a son named Eraste.  They were living in Lafayette Parish in late 1862.  Their daughter married into the Bernard family.  During the War of 1861-65, Sevenne, a resident of Vermilion Parish at the time of his enlistment, may have served as a corporal in Company A of the 8th Regiment Louisiana Cavalry, raised in Rapides Parish, which fought in Louisiana. 

Eraste married Carmelite, daughter of fellow Acadians Clet LeBlanc and Marcelite Bernard, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in September 1870. 

2

Leufroi, baptized at Opelousas, age unrecorded, in July 1789, married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Charles Hébert and Madeleine Robichaud "of Vermillion," at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in January 1808.  They settled on the upper Vermilion.  Their son, name unrecorded, died 6 days after his birth in November 1808, Jacques Leufroi, called Leufroi, fils, was born in St. Martin Parish in November 1809, Eusèbe or Eugène in January 1814 but died at age 7 in February 1820, a son, name unrecorded, died at birth in March 1816, a son, name and age unrecorded, died in January 1820, Moïse was born in February 1820, a child, perhaps a son, named unrecorded, died a day after its birth in February 1823, Duclise, also called Euclide, was born in Lafayette Parish in February 1825, and Ursin in May 1827.  Their daughters married into the Brasseaux, Clavel, Frederick, Guidry, Sonnier, and Templet families.  In September 1850, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 3 slaves--2 males and a female, all black, ages 40, 35, and 17--on Leufroy Boudreau's farm in the parish's Western District.  Leufroi died in Lafayette Parish in July 1866; the Vermilionville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Luffroy died at "age 84 yrs.," which would have made him older than brother Jean.  Four of Leufroi's sons survived childhood, but only two of them created families of their own.  They settled in Lafayette Parish. 

2a

Duclise married Azelia or Zilia, 16-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Treville Thibodeaux and his Creole wife Madeleine Constantin, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in December 1846.  Their son Jérôme died in Lafayette Parish, age unrecorded, in November 1847.  Duclise died in Lafayette Parish in January 1859; he was only 33 years old.  His family line probably died with him. 

2b

Ursin married Oliva, daughter of fellow Acadian Olivier Guidry and his Creole wife Marie Meaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in December 1848.  Their son Genus was born in Lafayette Parish in November 1851, Alexandre was born in May 1855, and Paul in December 1866. 

2c

Jacques Leufroi died in Lafayette Parish in January 1869.  The Vermilionville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Juffroy, as he called him, died "at age 60 yrs."; Jacques Leufroi would have been "only" 59.  Did he marry? 

2d

Moïse died in Lafayette Parish in March 1870.  The Vermilionville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Moïse died "at age 50 yrs.," so this was him.  Did he marry? 

3

Augustin, baptized at Attakapas, age 2, in June 1795, married Scholastique, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Hébert and Marguerite Trahan, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1812.  They settled on the upper Vermilion.  Their son Augustin, fils was born in St. Martin Parish in May 1813 but died at age 15 in March 1829, Joseph Clairville was born in January 1815, a son, name unrecorded, died in May 1816 only 5 weeks after his birth, Sylvanie was born in April 1817, a child, perhaps a son, named unrecorded, died at age 9 months in November 1823, Norbert was born in December 1825, Désiré was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 2 months, in June 1832, and Onésime A., also called O. A., was born in January 1834.  Their daughters married into the Baudoin, Mouton, Picard, and Vincent families.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted a single slave--a 7-year-old black male, on Augustin Boudreau's farm near Drauzin Boudreaux; one wonders if this was Augustin, Drauzin's uncle; if so, Augustin would have been in his late 60s. 

3a

Joseph Clairville married Adeline, daughter of fellow Acadians Onésime Mouton and Tarsille Hébert, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in April 1836; Adeline's brother was husband of Joseph Clairville's sister.  Their son Antoine was born in Lafayette Parish in December 1838, and Victorin in March 1843.  Their daughter married an Hébert cousin. 

Antoine married cousin Ursule, daughter of fellow Acadians Eusèbe Lessaint Hébert and Carmelite Hébert, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in July 1860 or 1861.  Their son, name unrecorded, died in Lafayette Parish in April 1863 9 days after his birth.  During the War of 1861-65, Antoine served probably as a conscript in Company B of the Crescent Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Orleans Parish, which fought in Tennessee and Louisiana, and Company C of the Consolidated Crescent Regiment Infantry, which fought in Louisiana.  Antoine enlisted in the Crescent Regiment at Camp Pratt, near New Iberia, in late August 1862 and remained with his company until the summer of 1863, when he reported sick at the Confederate hospital in New Iberia.  (A daughter had died in Lafayette Parish, age 5 months, in October 1862, a few weeks after his enlistment, and his wife died in April 1863 probably from complications of giving birth to a son, who also died, so this may have been a factor in Antoine's illness; it certainly would have affected his morale.)  He returned to his company, which changed its designation due to consolidation with another unit in November 1863.  Antoine remarried to Apolline, daughter of Louis Sellers and Belzire Baudoin, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in August 1866. 

3b

Onésime A. married Azélia, daughter of Don Louis Langlinais and his Acadian wife Azelle Trahan, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in January 1859.  They settled near Youngsville.  Their son Israël was born in September 1861, Félix in October 1862, and Aristide in March 1870. 

3c

Norbert married fellow Acadian Adalise or Ordalize Mouton and settled near Youngsville, Lafayette Parish.  Their son Pierre was born in August 1859, and Adam in April 1861.

4

Youngest son Louis, called Don Louis, born at Attakapas in January 1801, married Marie Madeleine, Adeline, Azeline, Celine, or Zeline, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Landry and Marie Melançon, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in February 1820.  They settled on the upper Vermilion.  Their son Euclide died in Lafayette Parish at age 13 days in April 1829, a child, perhaps a son, name unrecorded, died 6 days after its birth in September 1834, Dema was born in October 1835, Numa was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 3 months, in April 1838, and Étienne was born in August 1843.  Their daughters married into the Broussard, Dubois, Galtier, Landry, LeBlanc, and Taylor or Teller families.  In September 1850, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 3 slaves--a male and 2 females, all black, ages 50, 47, and 10--on Donlouis Boudreau's farm in the parish's Western District. 

4a

Étienne's succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in September 1861.  He would have been only 18 years old that year and probably did not marry.  He does not appear in Louisiana or Confederate wartime records.  Still, one wonders if his death was war-related. 

4b

During the War of 1861-65, Numa served in Company C of the 8th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in St. Martin Parish, which served in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania--one of General R. E. Lee's Louisiana Tigers.  Numa enlisted in June 1861, and, except for a bout of illness later that year which sent him to a Richmond hospital, he was with his company in all of its many marches, campaigns, and bloody battles until the summer of 1864.  Wounded in action at the Battle of Monocacy, Maryland, in July 1864, he fell into enemy hands.  The Federals sent him to the general hospital at nearby Frederick, Maryland, and then on to Baltimore and Fort McHenry, where he was still in the hospital in late November.  Recovered sufficiently from his wound, in early January 1865 the Federals sent him to the prisoner of war camp at Point Lookout, Maryland, and held him there until the following March, when he was paroled and exchanged at Aiken's Landing, Virginia.  After General Lee surrendered at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia, a few weeks later, Numa returned home as best he could.  He married Élodie, daughter of Raphaël Segura and his Acadian wife Carmelite Broussard, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in September 1865.  In August 1889, Numa, now in his early 50s, served in the honor guard at the funeral and reburial of Lieutenant Louis Edmond LeBlanc of his company.  Lieutenant LeBlanc had fallen at the Battle of Malvern Hill in July 1862 and was buried on the field by his comrades, who carved his name and unit into a wooden headboard.  Amazingly, over a quarter of a century after the young lieutenant fell, the caretaker of the nearby Federal cemetery, while exploring in the area, discovered the timed-worn headboard and the lieutenant's remains.  The LeBlanc family returned their loved one to his home on Bayou Teche, and hundreds of people attended the lieutenant's re-interment in St. Michael's Cemetery at St. Martinville.

Not until the 1770s did another Acadian Boudreaux settle west of the Atchafalaya Basin.  He came to Louisiana from Maryland as a young orphan in February 1768 and lived on the river for a time, but when he came of age, he chose to set down roots in the Attakapas District.  

Descendants of Augustin dit Rémi BOUDREAUX (c1755?-1830; Michel, Charles, Jean-Baptiste)

Augustin dit Rémi, son of Pierre Boudrot and Anne Hébert of Minas and Pigiguit, was, according to a Spanish census, a 13-year-old orphan when he came to Louisiana from Maryland with the Breau clan in February 1768, but he may have been older.  He followed the Breaus to San Luìs de Natchez, far up the Mississippi in what is now Concordia Parish, but he did not remain there.  After 1769, when the Spanish released the Acadians from the isolated settlement, he left the river and moved to the Attakapas District, where he married Judith-Philippe, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Martin and Rosalie Trahan, in c1777.  In the early 1800s, they were living at "Arcoquisson."  Their daughters married into the Boone and Prejean families.  Augustin dit Rémi remarried to fellow Maryland exile and cousin Madeleine, daughter of Olivier Benoit and Susanne Boudreaux, and widow of Amand Martin and André Favron, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in July 1815.  Augustin dit Rémi died in St. Landry Parish in June 1830; the Opelousas priest who recorded his burial said that Rémi was 85 years old when he died; his succession records were filed at the Opelousas courthouse in August 1822 and October 1830.  Three of Rémi's four sons, all by his first wife, created families of their own.

Oldest son Pierre, by his father's first wife, born at Attakapas in January 1779, probably died young.

Augustin, fils, also called Augustin dit Rémi, from his father's first wife, born at Attakapas in April 1782, married Françoise, daughter of German Creoles Michel Ritter and Marie Louise Stelly, at Opelousas in August 1805.  They settled on the upper Vermilion, at the northern edge of the old Attakapas District, and then near Grand Coteau in St. Landry Parish.  Their son Augustin III was baptized at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, age 8 months, in October 1811, Evariste was born in September 1813, Joseph was baptized at the Grand Coteau church, age 6 months, in November 1822, Onésime A. was born in March 1824, and Treville in June 1826.  Their daughters married into the Burleigh, Caruthers, Miller, Prejean, Richard, Robin, Savoie, and Stelly families.  Augustin, fils died in St. Landry Parish in February 1835; he was 53 years old.  His succession record may have been filed at the Opelousas courthouse in May 1850.  In October 1850, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 40 slaves--19 males and 21 females, all black except for 2 mulattoes, ranging in age from 60 years to 6 months--on Widow Augn Boudreau's plantation; these probably were Françoise Ritter's slaves.  Augustin, fils's five sons settled near Grand Coteau, and most of their lines survived.  A grandson settled near Church Point on Bayou Plaquemine Brûlé. 

2a

Augustin III married Sarah, daughter of Robert Burleigh and Marie Teller, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in February 1832; Sarah's brother had married one of Augustin III's sisters.  Augustin III died near Grand Coteau in February 1847; the priest who recorded his burial said that Augustin died "at age 40 yrs.," but he was only 36.  His succession record may have been filed at the Opelousas courthouse in May 1850.  His family line may have died with him.  In October 1850, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 5 slaves on Widow A. Boudreaux, Jr.'s farm next to William Burleigh near Grand Coteau; these probably were Sarah Burleigh's slaves.   

2b

Evariste married first cousin Marie Arsènne, called Arsènne, daughter of his uncle Jean dit Rémi Boudreaux and Marguerite Caruthers, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in April 1835.  Their son Evariste Jean was born near Grand Coteau in October 1837.  Their daughter married into the the Thibodeaux family.  Evariste, père died near Grand Coteau in August 1839; he was only 26 years old; his succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in May 1841, the same month that Marie Arsènne remarried to Anglo-American William Fisher at Grand Coteau. 

Evariste Jean married Marie Ozea, called Ozea, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Benoit and Marcellite Lebert, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in January 1860.  They settled near Church Point, then in St. Landry but now in Acadia Parish.  Their son Jean was born in December 1860.  During the War of 1861-65, Evariste Jean served in Company K of the 29th (Thomas's) Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in St. Landry Parish, which fought at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  A daughter was born in May 1864 while Evariste Jean was at home waiting for the exchange of his regiment, which had been captured at Vicksburg the previous summer.  Evariste Jean died near Church Point in June 1868; the Grand Coteau priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Evariste died "at age 28 yrs."; Evariste Jean would have been 30; his succession record, naming his wife, was filed at the Opelousas courthouse, St. Landry Parish, in March 1869.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

2c

Joseph married German Creole Joséphine Marks at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in January 1842.  Their son Joseph, fils was baptized at the Grand Coteau church, age unrecorded, in November 1843 but died 10 days after his birth, and Joseph Edgar, perhaps called Edgar, was born in August 1850.  Their daughters married into the Bertinot, Boutte, and Darby families.  In October 1850, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 6 slaves--4 males and 2 females, all blacks, ranging in age from 60 to 2--on Joseph Boudreau's farm.  One wonders if this was Joseph, son of Augustin, fils.  In 1860, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 5 slaves--3 males and 2 females, all black, ages 60 to 13--on Joseph Bodreau's farm; this probably was the same fellow who held the 6 slaves 10 years before.

2d

Onésime A. married Joséphine, daughter of Alexandre Castille and Joséphine Stelly,  at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in October 1845.  Their son Onésime A., fils was born near Grand Coteau in August 1850 but died at age 7 in October 1857.  Their daughter married into the Mouton family.  In October 1850, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 13 slaves--11 males and 2 females, all black, ranging in age from 50 to 15--held by Onézime Boudreau & Co.; this may have been Onésime A., père, who died near Grand Coteau in May 1854; he was only 30 years old; his succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse the following month.  Except for its blood, did his family line survive? 

2e

Treville married German Creole Marie Azéma, called Azéma, Marks at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in August 1846.  Their son Treville, fils was born near Grand Coteau in July 1847, a child, perhaps a son, name unrecorded, died at age 3 months in February 1849, Ernest was born in December 1853 but died at age 7 1/2 in April 1861, Alberd was born in August 1855, and Félix in April 1857.  Their daughter married into the Stelly family.  Treville died near Grand Coteau in August 1860; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Treville died "at age 31 yrs.," but he was 34; his succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in October.  

Treville, fils may have married Anglo American Victoria Dwyer.  Their son Adam was born near Breaux Bridge, St. Martin Parish, in June 1868.

Jean dit Rémi, also called Arsène, from his father's first wife, baptized at Attakapas, age 2 months, in May 1784, married Marguerite, daughter of Anglo Creole William Caruthers and Elizabeth Bickham of North Carolina and New Jersey, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in September 1806.  They settled at the northern edge of the old Atakapas District, at the time a part of St. Martin, now Lafayette Parish, in an area along the upper Vermilion that the Acadians called Beaubassin, east of Carencro and south of Grand Coteau.  A child, perhaps a son, name unrecorded, died at age 1 month in St. Martin Parish in June 1810, Jean Symphorien, called Symphorien and also Cyprien, was born in May 1811, Julien in January 1815, Pierre Onésime, called Onésime, in December 1818, and Joseph Dupréville near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in April 1821.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Fisher, and Richard families and perhaps into the Robin family as well.  Jean dit Rémi died near Grand Coteau in December 1841; the priest who recorded his burial said that Jean died "at age 55 yrs.," but he was 57; his succession had been filed at the Opelousas courthouse the previous January.   Two of his four sons created families of their own and settled near Grand Coteau.  His oldest son's line was especially vigorous. 

3a

Symphorien married Marie or Mary, daughter of Robert Burleigh and Marie Teller, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in December 1832.  Their son Dupréville was born near Grand Coteau in October 1833, Damonville in December 1835, Jean Symphorien in September 1839, John Raphaël, called Raphaël, in June 1842, Joseph Lichy in October 1843, Félix in May 1849, and John in January 1853.  Their daughters married into the Ledoux and McClelland families.  In 1860, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 10 slaves--5 males and 5 females, all black, ranging in age from 50 to 1, living in 2 houses--on Symphorien Boudreau's farm; one wonders if this was him. 

Damonville married Anglo American Eliza or Elila E. Jones or Johns in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in May 1860.  During the War of 1861-65, Damonville served in Company K of the 3rd (Harrison's) Regiment Louisiana Cavalry, originally called the Prairie Rangers, raised in St. Landry Parish, which fought in Louisiana and southern Arkansas; the Prairie Rangers were, in fact, the headquarters guard for Major General Richard Taylor, commander of Confederate forces in South Louisiana during the last two years of the war.  A daughter was born near Church Point, then in St. Landry but now in Acadia Parish, in March 1863, when Damonville was with his company.  Damonville remarried to Célestine, daughter of fellow Acadians Augustin Jeansonne, fils and Céleste Pitre, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in February 1869. 

During the War of 1861-65, Raphaël served in Company B of the 18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in St. Landry Parish, which fought in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana, and as a corporal in Company F of the Consolidated 18th Regiment and Yellow Jacket Battalion Infantry, which fought in Louisiana.  Raphaël enlisted in the 18th Louisiana at Camp Moore in May 1861, served on detached service as a pioneer in the spring of 1862, and was captured at Alexandria, Louisiana, in May 1863.  The federals held him briefly, releasing him at Grant's Island, near Mobile, Alabama, later in the month.  Raphaël married Corinne, daughter of fellow Acadians François Louis Pitre and Félicia Pitre, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in December 1868.  They settled near Washington, north of Opelousas.  Their son Francis Thomas was born in September 1869. 

Félix died in Lafayette Parish in July 1864.  He was only 15 years old.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

3b

Onésime married Marie Mélicère or Melissa, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Savoie and Modeste Préjean, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in May 1837.  Their son Joseph Émile was baptized at the Grand Coteau church, age unrecorded, in April 1838.  In October 1850, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 13 slaves--11 males and 2 females, all black, ranging in age from 50 to 15--held by Onézime Boudreau & Co.; one wonders if this was him.  In 1860, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 2 slaves--a 26-year-old black male, and an 8-year-old black female--on Onejime Boudreau's farm. 

3c

Julien was supposed to have married Joséphine, daughter of fellow Acadians André Préjean and Joséphine Breaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, on 2 July 1838, but the wedding did not take place.  Julien died near Grand Coteau three days later, evidently too ill to attend the ceremony; he was only 23 years old; his succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in August. 

3d

Joseph Dupréville may have died near Grand Coteau in August 1841.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Dupréville died "at age 30 yrs.", but Joseph Dupréville would have been only 20 years old.  He probably did not marry. 

4

Youngest son Benjamin, by his father's first wife, born at Opelousas in April 1789, baptized at home and then by the Opelousas priest in June 1794, married Iréné, daughter of Philippe Lacase and Geneviève Carrière, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in February 1817.  Iréné's family lived in the Bois Mallet, near present-day Eunice, St. Landry Parish.  Their son Benjamin, fils had been born in St. Landry Parish in March 1812, and another Benjamin, fils, a twin, in October 1817.  Iréné died after giving birth to the twins.  Their daughter married into the Guilbert family.  Benjamin remarried to stepsister and cousin Céleste, daughter of André Favron and his Acadian wife Madeleine Benoit, probably in St. Landry Parish in c1818; Céleste's mother Benjamin's father's second wife.  Benjamin and Céleste's son Louis was born in St. Landry Parish in August 1818.  Benjamin, père's succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in December 1822; he would have been 33 years old that year.  One wonders if any of his sons created families of their own.

Two Joseph Boudrots came from France in 1785 and settled west of the Atchafalaya Basin.  One was already married when he came to Louisiana, and the other did not marry until after he moved from the river to the Attakapas District: 

Descendants of Joseph BOUDREAUX (c1755?-1790s; Michel, Claude?, François?)

Joseph, only son, perhaps, of Jean-Zacharie Boudrot and Marguerite Hébert, born either at Minas or aboard ship in c1755, followed his family to Virginia later that year, to England in 1756, and to France in May 1763.  After the death of his father in April 1765, Joseph, now age 10, went to live with Joseph Célestin dit Bellemère, husband of Marguerite Boudrot.  Joseph's stay with the family was brief.  Joseph Bellemère died at St.-Servan in August 1767, age 39, and Marguerite Boudrot followed her husband to the grave the following month, at age 30, leaving behind three young children.  Joseph was still only 12.  He may have been the Joseph Boudrot who married Marie-Françoise, daughter of fellow Acadians Germain Semer and Marie Trahan of Grand-Pré and Le Havre, at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, France, in May 1785.  Marie-Françoise, sans Joseph, crossed from France aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed her 16-year-old brother, Grégoire-Dominique, to the Attakapas District, where they settled near their older brother, Jean-Baptiste Semer, who had come to Louisiana in 1765 and who they had never met.  When Marie-Françoise sailed to Louisiana, she was pregnant with son Antoine.  For some reason, husband Joseph did not accompany her to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, but he was in the colony by the summer of 1788, when their second son was conceived.  Joseph died by August 1796, when his wife remarried at Attakapas.  He and Marie-Françoise had at least three sons, two of whom settled in St. Landry and St. Martin parishes.  In the 1850s, a grandson moved farther out on the prairies and settled along Bayou Plaquemine Brûlé.

Oldest son Antoine, born at Attakapas in February 1786, married Marie Émelie, daughter of fellow Acadians François Savoie and Apolline Luce Potier, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in August 1812.  They settled on the upper Vermilion, at the far northern edge of the old Attakapas District.  Their son Antoine, fils died 8 days after his birth in August 1817, Joseph Arvillien, called Arvillien, was born in St. Martin Parish in September 1818, Louis Deterville near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in August 1820, Placide was baptized at the Grand Coteau church, age 3 months, in January 1823, Alexandre Aladin, called Aladin, was born in February 1825, and François Gerasin, called Gerasin, in March 1827.  Their daughters married into the Benoit, Boone, Cormier, Meche, Prejean, Richard, Savoie, and Thibodeaux families.  Antoine, père died near Grand Coteau in February 1836; he was 51 years old; his succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in September 1849.  

1a

Arvillien married German Creole Marie or Mary Mayer at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in November 1840.  One wonders if they had any sons. 

1b

Placide married Marie Rose, daughter of fellow Acadians David Babineaux le jeune and Marie Éloise Préjean, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in April 1844.  Their son Osémé was born near Grand Coteau in July 1847 but died at age 1 1/2 in April 1849, Simon was born in January 1853, and Ursin in November 1855.  Their daughters married into the Miller and Savoie families.  Placide died near Grand Coteau in January 1860; he was only 37 years old;  his succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in September 1865. 

1c

Aladin married French Creole Mélanie Meche at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in May 1846.  Their son Alexandre was born near Grand Coteau in January 1847, Gustave in August 1848, and Placide le jeune in August 1850.  Aladin remarried to Marie Oliva, daughter of Noël Olivier and Louise Daigle, at the Grand Coteau church in July 1853.  They settled near Church Point, then in St. Landry but now in Acadia Parish.  Their son Apollinaire was born in April 1855 but died at age 6 in October 1861, Napoléon was born in August 1856, Firmin in January 1858, and Antoine Clément in January 1862. 

Alexandre, by his father's first wife, married Marie Lastenie, called Lastenie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Thibodeaux and his Anglo wife Elizabeth Smith, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in May 1868, and sanctified the marriage at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in July.  Their son Alexandre Lasty was born near Grand Coteau in March 1869. 

Gustave, by his father's first wife, married Eugénie, another daughter of Jean Baptiste Thibodeaux and Elizabeth Smith, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in November 1868.  Their son Lucien was born near Grand Coteau in May 1870. 

1d

Gerasin married Émelie Venable at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in February 1848.  Their son François was born near Grand Coteau in April 1849 but died the following June.  Gerasin remarried to cousin Marie Émilie, called Émilie, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Savoie and Modeste Préjean, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in April 1855.  Their son Gerasin, fils was born near Grand Coteau in December 1862.  Gerasin, père died near Grand Coteau in December 1863; he was only 36 years old; his succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse, St. Landry Parish, in December 1870.  One wonders if his death was war-related.

Louis, born at Attakapas in May 1789, may have died young.

3

Youngest son Joseph, fils, born at Attakapas in c1790, married Félicité or Félice, daughter of fellow Acadian Sylvain Broussard and Félice Guilbeau of Grand Pointe, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in October 1816.  They settled at Grand Pointe, on the upper Bayou Teche in St. Martin Parish near present-day Breaux Bridge.  Their son Joseph Osémé, called Osémé, was born at Grand Pointe in September 1817.  Their daughter married into the Cormier family.  Joseph, fils died at Grand Pointe in December 1837; he was only 48 years old.  He fathered only one son, but the son created a large family of his own and remained in St. Martin Parish. 

Joseph Osémé married Céleste Émilie, Ameline, Amelina, Émilia, or Melina, daughter of fellow Acadian Michel Onésime Cormier and Céleste Dupuis, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in December 1838.  Their son Joseph le jeune was born in St. Martin Parish in January 1848, Omer in June 1853, Martial in February 1855, Sylvain in December 1855[sic], Ulysse in March 1859 but died at age 1 1/2 (the recording priest said 3 1/2) in January 1861, and Hippolyte was born in October 1860.  Their daughters married into the Cabrol, Comeaux, Dubois, Duhon, and Wiltz families.  In November 1850, the federal census taker in St. Martin Parish counted 10 slaves--7 males and 3 females, all black, ranging in age from 50 to 1--on Ozémi Boudreau's farm.  In June 1860, the federal census taker in St. Martin Parish counted 29 slaves--20 males and 9 females, all black except for 4 mulattoes, ages 36 to 1--on Ozémé Boudro's plantation not far from Nicholas Cormier.  In July 1860, Osémé also held 2 slaves--both males, both black, ages 30 and 22--on a farm in western Lafayette Parish.  Osémé died in St. Martin Parish in December 1861; he was only 44 years old; his succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse later that month. 

Descendants of Joseph BOUDREAUX (1767-1838; Michel, Charles, Denis)

Joseph, son of Charles Boudrot of Île St.-Jean and his second wife Marie-Madeleine Bourgeois, born at St.-Servan, France, in May 1767, came to Louisiana in 1785 aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785 with his older half-sister Cécile, widow of Charles Richard.  Joseph (called Jean for some reason on the ship's embarkation list) probably followed his sister to Ascension, on the Acadian Coast above New Orleans.  During the late 1780s or early 1790s, he crossed the Atchafalaya Basin to the Attakapas District, where he married Élisabeth- or Isabelle-Apolline, called Apolline and sometimes Zabelle, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Trahan and Marguerite Doiron, in November 1792.  Apolline was a native of Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, and had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  They settled in the northern part of the Attakapas District.  Theirs daughters married into the Landry and Simon families.  Joseph died near Vermilionville, Lafayette Parish, in December 1838; the priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph was 68 years old when he died, but he was 71.  Most of his sons settled in Lafayette Parish, but one of them moved to the New Iberia area, then in St. Martin Parish, in the 1840s.  Some of his grandsons settled in Vermilion Parish.

Oldest son Joseph, fils, born at Attakapas in February 1796, married Ismene, Lisemaine, Lismene, or Lise Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians François Labauve and Éloise Hébert, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in May 1815.  They settled on the upper Vermilion near present-day Lafayette.  Their son Joseph III was born in St. Martin Parish in March 1816, François Rosémond, called Rosémond, in July 1819, Jean Clairville, called Clairville, in August 1821, Émile was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 11 months, in August 1826, Seville was born in October 1829, and Théodule was baptized at age 9 months in August 1834.  Their daughters married into the Bouquinet, Broussard, Desmarets, and Thibodeaux families.  Joseph, fils died in Lafayette Parish in April 1834; the priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph, fils was 35 years old when he died, but he was 37.  Five of his sons created families of their own and settled in Lafayette Parish. 

1a

Joseph III married Marie Sylvanie, called Sylvanie, daughter of fellow Acadians François Bourg and Seraphie Landry, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in 1836.  Their son Cleopha was baptized at the Vermilionville church, age 3 months, in July 1839 but died at age 4 1/2 in August 1843, Jules Désiré was born in October 1850, Anatole in January 1852, and Louis Amédée in September 1854.  Their daughters married into the Broussard and Seaon or Seeon families.  Joseph III remarried to Marie Eulalie, daughter of Joseph Nunez and Marie Tarsille Toups, at the Abbeville church, Vermilion Parish, in November 1856.  Their son Joseph William, also called Martial, was born in Lafayette Parish in October 1858 but died at age 1 1/2 in February 1860, Albert was born near Youngsville in September 1860 but died at age 8 months in May 1861, and Adam was born in April 1862.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 8 slaves--5 males and 3 females, all black, ranging in age from 40 to 11, living in 3 houses--on Joseph Boudreau's farm next to Widow Edmond Boudreaux.  Was this Joseph III?  If so, the widow next door would have been his aunt by marriage. 

1b 

Rosémond married Angeline, daughter of fellow Acadian Felonise Hébert, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in March 1837.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give Angeline's father's name.  Rosémond remarried to Élizabeth, daughter of Louis Lormand and Marie Fremaux, at the Vermilionville church in April 1842.  Their son François Dorcili, called Dorcili, was born in Lafayette Parish in August 1843 but died near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, age 10, in March 1854.  Their daughters married into the Broussard family.  Rosémond died near Abbeville in May 1854; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that François Rosémond died "at age 36 yrs.," but he was only 34.  His family line, except for its blood, may have died with him. 

1c

Seville married Marie Lise, called Lise, daughter of fellow Acadians Valéry Broussard and Marguerite Landry, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in June 1849.  Their son Valéry was born in Lafayette Parish in March 1850, and Joseph le jeune perhaps posthumously in December 1851.  Seville's succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in December 1851; he would have been 22 years old that year.

1e

Théodule may have married ____, daughter of fellow Acadian Édouard Broussard, and may have been the Théodule Boudreaux who died "at the home of Mr. Edward Broussard, his father-in-law," near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, in February 1854.  The priest who recorded the burial did not give Théodule's parents' names or his age at the time of his death.

Philemon dit Edmond, also called Aimond, Aymond, Emon, Emond, and Euphémon, a twin, born at Attakapas in April 1798, married Élisabeth or Isabelle, also called Zabelle, daughter of Jean-Baptiste Simon and his Acadian wife Marie Madeleine Aucoin of Grand Prairie, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in January 1821.  They settled on the upper Vermilion.  Their son Béloni, also called Honoré, was born in c1824, Edmond, fils was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 6 months, in June 1838, Sevenne was born in May 1843 but died at age 14 1/2 in March 1858, and Sosthène was born in July 1849.  Their daughters married into the Bourg, Hébert, Thibodeaux, and Trahan families, four of them to Hébert brothers.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 3 slaves--2 males and a female, all black, ages 24, 18, and 16--on Edmond Boudreau's farm not far from François Boudreau in the parish's Western District.  Philemon dit Edmond died in Lafayette Parish in February 1853; the priest who recorded his burial said that "Emond" died "at age 50 yrs.," but he was 54; his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse that month.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted a single slave--an 18-year-old black female, on Widow Edmond Boudreaux's farm next to Joseph Boudreau; this was Isabelle Simon's slave.  The Joseph Boudreaux next door probably was her nephew by marriage. 

2a

Béloni married Eugènie, also called Arminie, 14-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Trahan and his Creole wife Marie Marcellite Sellers, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in July 1843.  They settled near Youngsville.  Their son Nicolas was born in April 1847, Jules in September 1856, Albert in March 1859, and Jean Baptiste in January 1863.  Their daughters married into the Broussard and Hébert families.  Béloni's succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in June 1868; he would have been 44 years old that year. 

Nicolas married cousin Louisianaise, daughter of Manuel Armentor and his Acadian wife his Acadian wife Meranthe Trahan, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in September 1867.  Their son Cleopha was born near Youngsville in May 1870.

Youngest son François, born in St. Martin Parish in October 1807, married Marguerite, another daughter of Jean-Baptiste Simon and Marie Madeleine Aucoin, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in December 1824.  Their son Symphorien was baptized at the Vermilionville church, age 4 months and 20 days, in October 1827, Sifroi was born in October 1839, Adrien in August 1842, Joseph in February 1845, Jean near New Iberia, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in October 1845, and Robert Baube in Lafayette Parish in October 1849.  Their daughters married into the Baudoin, Broussard, Hébert, and Sellers families.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 5 slaves--2 males and 3 females, all blacks, ranging in age from 25 years to 2 months--on François Boudreaux's farm next to widow Charles Baudoin and not far from Edmond Boudreau in the parish's Western District.  François's succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in November 1853; he would have been only 46 years old that year. 

3a

Symphorien married Marguerite Azéma, called Azéma, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Theriot and Scholastique Poirier, at the Abbeville church, Vermilion Parish, in April 1856.  Their son Simon was born in Lafayette Parish in July 1857, Désiré near Youngsville in May 1859, and Lifroi near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in September 1861.  In 1860, the federal census taker in St. Landry Parish counted 10 slaves--5 males and 5 females, all black, ranging in age from 50 to 1, living in 2 houses--on Symphorien Boudreau's farm; one wonders if this was him. 

3b

During the War of 1861-65, Adrien served in Company E of the 26th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Lafayette Parish, which fought at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  He died at Vicksburg probably from disease in April 1863, age 20. 

3c

According to a succession record filed at the Vermilionville courthouse, Lafayette Parish, in February 1866, Syphroy Boudreaux "died at Port Hudson[, Louisiana,] in 1863."  Sifroi, son of François, would have been 23 years old during the Siege of Port Hudson.  One wonders in which Confederate unit he was serving during the campaign and what killed him. 

3d

Joseph le jeune married Amelie or Amelia, daughter of fellow Acadians Éloi K. Broussard and Rose Hébert, at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in September 1865.  Their son Adrien was born near New Iberia in July 1866, and Joseph, fils in February 1868. 

3e

Robert Baube married Euphémie, daughter of fellow Acadian Aladins Vincent and Azema Trahan, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1868.

Boudreauxs from the river and upper Bayou Lafourche moved to the old Attakapas District during the early antebellum period:

Descendants of Joseph-Alain BOUDREAUX (1781-?; Michel, Charles, François)

Joseph-Alain, third and youngest son of Amand Boudrot of Pigiguit and his second wife Frenchwoman Marie-Perrine Nogues, born probably at Plouër, France, in c1781, crossed to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, with his father, mother, and four siblings.  His parents chose to settle not at Bayou des Écores with the majority of their fellow passengers but on upper Bayou Lafourche.  In late 1795, Joseph-Alain was living with his older half-brothers at Assumption, where he married Marie-Jeanne, daughter of Frenchman Lambert Billardin or Villardin of Morlaix, France, and his Acadian wife Marguerite Daigre, in October 1803; Marie-Jeanne's mother was an Acadian Daigle.  Marie-Jeanne had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  During the late 1810s or the 1820s, Joseph-Alain crossed the Atchafalaya Basin to the old Attakapas District, where he remarried to Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadians Firmin Landry and Scholastique Thibodeaux and widow of Henry Leonard Ransonet, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in October 1827.  Neither of Joseph-Alain's sons by his first wife created families of their own, and he may not have had sons by his second wife, so this line of the family probably did not survive in the Bayou State. 

1

Older son Clément Henrique, by his father's first wife, born in Assumption Parish in December 1810, may have died young. 

2

Younger son Léon Eustache, by his father's first wife, born in Assumption Parish in November 1815, died at age 2 in May 1817.  

Descendants of Olivier BOUDREAUX le jeune (1788-?; Michel, Claude, Michel, Olivier)

Olivier le jeune, third son of Simon Boudreaux and Monique Dupuis, born at St.-Jacques on the river in July 1788, crossed the Atchafalaya Basin when he came of age and settled in the old Attakapas District.  He married Susanne, also called Suzette Anne, daughter of fellow Acadians François Breaux and Silesie Dugas of Bayou Vermilion, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in August 1811.  They settled at Anse la Butte on the upper Vermilion between present-day Lafayette and Breaux Bridge, and at nearby Grand Pointe on upper Bayou Teche near Breaux Bridge, before moving out to the prairie of western Lafayette Parish, where they ran a large plantation/vacharie.  Their daughters married into the Breaux, Broussard, Daigle (German Canadian, not Acadian), Dugas, and LeBlanc families.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 32 slaves--18 males and 14 females, all black except for 1 mulatto, ranging in age from 45 to 1--on Olivier Boudreau's plantation next to Drauzin (probably A. D.) Boudreau in the parish's Western District.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 43 slaves--22 males and 21 females, all black except for 7 mulattoes, ages 63 years to 7 months, living in only 5 houses--on Olivier Boudreaux's plantation between Françious Breaux and Ozémé Boudreaux.  Three of Olivier's four sons created families of their own and settled in Lafayette Parish; two of the lines survived.  Olivier's middle son, A. D., became a prominent planter, cattleman, and political figure in Lafayette Parish. 

1

Oldest son Valéry, born in St. Martin Parish in September 1812, married Marie Sylvanie, also called Azélina and Celphanie, daughter of Ursin Patin and his Acadian wife Marie Aspasie Guidry, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1832.  Their daughter married into the Doucet family.  Valéry's succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in February 1845; he would have been 33 years old that year.  He may have fathered no sons.  In August 1860, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 6 slaves--2 males and 4 females, all black, ranging in age from 42 to 2, living in a single house--on Mrs. Valéry Boudreaux's farm; these probably were Marie Sylvanie Patin's slaves. 

2

Olivier Rosaime, born in St. Martin Parish in March 1817, may have died young. 

3

Aurelien Drosin, called Drosin and A. D., born in St. Martin Parish in November 1818, married Azéma, 17-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Martin and his French-Canadian wife Caroline Daigle, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in June 1842.  They settled on the prairie a few miles west of Vermilionville.  Their son Charles Alphonse was born in Lafayette Parish in May 1848, Alexandre Olivier, called Olivier, in August 1850, and Valéry le jeune in October 1857.  They also had an older son named Simon le jeune.  Their daughter married into the Butcher family.  In August 1850, federal census takers in Lafayette Parish counted 3 slaves--a male and 2 females, all black, ages 52, 18, and 15--on Drauzin Boudreau's farm next to Olivier Boudreau's plantation in the parish's Western District; these probably were A. D.'s slaves.  In June 1860, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 6 slaves--3 males and 3 females, all black except for 1 mulatto, ages 65 to 3--on Drozin A. Boudreaux's farm; this probably was A. D.  When war broke out in 1861, A. D. was colonel of the Lafayette Parish militia and secretary of the parish's Committee of Vigilance.  During the War of 1861-65, A. D. served as captain of Company K, 2nd Regiment Louisiana Reserve Corps, a local unit raised in Lafayette Parish that fought prairie Jayhawkers.  After the war, his neighbors still called him "Colonel."  By the early 1870s, his plantation/vacharie contained 300 acres near present-day Scott.  In August 1874, during Reconstruction, the Colonel became president of White League Club Begnaud No. 2 in Lafayette Parish.  He was still alive in April 1896 when two of his farm hands, Alexis and Ernest Blanc of France, murdered neighbor and kinsman Martin Begnaud at nearby Scott Station (Begnaud, a prominent merchant in Scott, was a brother of one of the Colonel's daughters-in-law). 

3a

Simon le jeune married Céleste, daughter of German Canadian Joseph Daigle and Élise Dupré, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in May 1866.  Their son François Osmar was born in Lafayette Parish in March 1867 but may have died at age 2 1/2 (the recording priest, who did not give the parents' names, said 11 months) in September 1869, and Laurent Dupré was born in April 1870. 

3b

Charles Alphonse married 19-year-old Mathilde Pellerin probably in Lafayette Parish in c1875.  Their son Adolphe Charles was born near Scott, Lafayette Parish, in June 1880. 

Adolphe Charles married Roselia, called Rosa, daughter of Jean Castex and Alice Landry of Mermentau, Acadia Parish, in the early 1900s.  (Rosa's father, born in France in March 1837, immigrated to Louisiana in 1855.  He married Rosa's mother in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in April 1861, and sanctified the marriage at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in February 1862.  Neither the parish clerk nor the Grand Coteau priest who recorded the marriage gave the couple's parents' names.)  Adolphe and Rosa settled at Mermentau, where they ran a general store.  Their son Mark A. was born at Mermentau in c1908; Castex M., called C. M., in c1910; and James Louis, called Jimmy, in c1918.

James Louis  married Adeline, daughter of Léonce Cormier and Zelma Istre.  Jimmy, Adeline, and three of their four children--James Louis, Jr., age 16; Deborah, age 14; and Cynthia, age 10--died in an automobile crash on U.S. Highway 90 east of Jennings, Jefferson Davis Parish, on Christmas Day 1965.  Oldest daughter Yvette, who was not with her parents and siblings on that fateful evening, was the family's only survivor. 

4

Youngest son Zéphirin, born in Lafayette Parish in June 1828, married Célestine, daughter of French Creoles Alexandre Delhomme and Delphine Bergeron, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in July 1855.  Their son Alexandre Olivier le jeune was born in Lafayette Parish in May 1856, Louis Didier in c1860 but died at age 2 in December 1862, Jean Didier was born in July 1861, and Evariste in October 1866.  In June 1860, the federal census taker in Lafayette Parish counted 4 slaves--3 males and a female, all black, ranging in age from 55 to 13, living in 1 house--on Ziphirin Boudreaux's farm.  During the War of 1861-65, Zéphirin, in his early 30s, served as a corporal in Company A of the 18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in St. James Parish, which fought in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana, and as a private in Company A of the Consolidated 18th Regiment and Yellow Jacket Battalion Infantry, which fought in Louisiana.  He may have been a conscript.  A daughter was born in August 1864 when Zéphirin was with his unit in the Red River valley.  He survived the war and returned to Lafayette Parish.  He is buried in St. John the Evangelist Catholic Cemetery, behind the cathedral in Lafayette.

Descendants of Louis Clairville BOUDREAUX (1823-; Michel, Claude, Étienne, Marin, Étienne)

Louis Clairville, called Clairville, oldest son of David Valentin Boudreaux of Assumption Parish and Marguerite Riche or Richet of Pointe Coupee Parish, born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1823, married Marie Adèle or Odile, daughter of Christophe Trosclair and Marie Borne, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in December 1842.  He moved his family from upper Bayou Lafourche to near Pattersonville, now Patterson, St. Mary Parish, in the early 1850s.  Their daughters married into the Dartes, Korn, and Trosclair families.  Two of Clairville's younger brothers, Furcy and Étienne Frédéric, followed him to lower Bayou Teche just before and immediately after the War Between the States.

Other BOUDREAUXs on the Western Prairies

Local church and civil records make it difficult to link many Boudreauxs in the western parishes with known lines of the family there:

Joseph Boudreaux married Edvise Holin, perhaps Hulin.  Their daughter Marie Adelema married Endville, son of French Creole Jacques Arnaud, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in April 1845.

David Boudreaux married fellow Acadian Adolphine Hébert and settled near New Iberia, Iberia Parish, by the late 1860s. 

Treville Boudreaux married Aimée Boudreaux.  Their son Oscar William was born near Breaux Bridge, St. Martin Parish, in April 1866.  Were they the same couple as Treville Boudreaux and Émée Roger who lived on Bayou Lafourche in the early 1860s?

Victor Boudreaux married fellow Acadian Honorine Bourg.  Their son Luc Alcide was born near Brashear, now Morgan, City, St. Mary Parish, in January 1867.

.

Two Boudreaux families that emerged in St. Landry and Lafayette parishes during the antebellum period cannot be linked by area church and civil records to any of the other Boudreauxs in the area:

Descendants of Jean BOUDREAUX (?-?)

Jean Boudreaux married Clotilde Kemper or Kenterre.  They had at least one son, who settled in St. Landry and Lafayette parishes.  Jean, père died perhaps in St. Landry Parish before October 1824. 

Jean, fils married Éloise or Louise, daughter of Acadians Augustin Dugas and Marie Duhon, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in October 1824; the priest who recorded the marriage noted that both the groom's and the bride's fathers were deceased at the time of the wedding.  Their son Jean Théogène was born in Lafayette Parish in February 1832, and Joseph Hermogène in May 1836.  Their daughter married into Simon family. 

Joseph Hermogène married Marcellite, daughter of Jean Baptiste Simon, fils and his Acadian wife Célestine Granger, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in July 1853, and sanctified the marriage at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in May 1856.  They settled near Church Point, then in St. Landry but now in Acadia Parish.  Their son Jean le jeune was baptized at the Opelousas church, age 2 months, in August 1856, Joseph Cleopha was born in July 1861, and Gulpha David in March 1864.  Joseph Hermogène's succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in June 1866; he would have been 30 years old that year. 

Descendants of Joseph BOUDREAUX (?-?)

Joseph Boudreaux married Geneviève, called Niève, Fabre.  They had at least one son, who settled in Lafayette Parish. 

Gustave married Louise Phelonise, called Phelonise, daughter of Charles Washington Campbell and his Acadian wife Céleste Préjean, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in November 1858.  They settled near Youngsville.  Their son Jean Joseph was born in August 1859, Gustave, fils in September 1861, and Charles Edmond in September 1868.

LOUISIANA:  RIVER SETTLEMENTS

Following close behind the Boudrots who went to the Bayou Teche valley in 1765 were four other Boudrots who came to Louisiana from Halifax that year.  They settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques on the river above New Orleans where 20 Acadians from Georgia had settled the year before:  

Joseph Boudrot was counted at Cabanocé in April 1766, age unrecorded, with an unnamed woman and an unnamed girl in his household, so he must have reached the colony in 1765 with a wife and daughter whose names have been lost to history.  He may have been the Joseph Boudreaux who married Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Babin and Osite LeBlanc and widow of Benjamin LeBlanc, at Ascension, just upriver from St.-Jacques, in May 1806.  The priest who recorded the 1806 marriage said that this Joseph was son of Joseph Boudrot and Anne Blanchard and a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  

Olivier Boudrot, age 37, a widower, and his son Simon, age 12, also arrived in 1765.  At age 39, Olivier remarried to Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Gaudet and Marie Belliveau and widow of Michel Dupuis, at Cabanocé in October 1767.  They had no children.  Olivier died at St.-Jacques in November 1782; he was only 54 years old.  His son Simon carried on the line at St.-Jacques. 

Élisabeth, also called Isabelle, Boudrot, age 43, came to Cabanocé with husband Étienne LeBlanc, age 43, and seven children, ranging in age from 21 to infancy.  They, too, remained on the river.  

Descendants of Simon BOUDREAUX (c1753-1824; Michel, Claude, Michel)

Simon, son of Olivier Boudrot and his first wife Anne-Marie Dupuis, born probably at Minas in c1753, escaped the British roundup at Minas in the fall of 1755.  His family fled to the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore, but British forces eventually captured them and held them in Nova Scotia as prisoners of war.  Simon came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 with his widowed father and married his stepsister, Monique, daughter of Michel Dupuis and Anne Gaudet, his father's second wife, at St.-Jacques in May 1774, and there they remained.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Breaux, and LeBlanc families.  In the late 1800s or early 1810s, Simon's married sons crossed the Atchafalaya Basin and settled on upper Bayou Teche.  Two of them returned to the river, but the youngest, Olivier le jeune, remained on the Teche.  Simon died in St. James Parish in March 1824; he was 70 years old.  Two of his grandsons settled in Ascension and St. James parishes, another on upper Bayou Lafourche.

3

Olivier le jeune, born at St.-Jacques in July 1788, married Susanne, daughter of fellow Acadians François Breaux and Silesie Dugas, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in August 1811 and settled in St. Martin Parish.  

4

Youngest son Antoine, born at St.-Jacques in October 1795, also may have died young.

In July 1767, a 12-year-old orphan, Marie, daughter of Benjamin Boudrot, reached Louisiana from Maryland with the family of Amand Richard.  They settled with other Maryland exiles at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville, on the Acadian Coast above New Orleans, where Marie married cousin Amand, son of fellow Acadians Paul Hébert and Marie-Josèphe Melançon, in September 1776.  Amand also had come to Louisiana from Maryland in 1767 and probably had known Marie from childhood.  Two of their grandsons became prominent men in Louisiana affairs:  Paul Octave Hébert served as governor of Louisiana in the early 1850s, and Paul Octave and his first cousin Louis Hébert rose to the rank of brigadier general during the War of 1861.  Marie died near St. Gabriel in August 1847, a widow in her early 90s. 

~

Another contingent of Maryland exiles--a large extended family led by brothers Alexis and Honoré Breau of Pigiguit and Port Tobacco--reached Louisiana in February 1768.  With them were three Boudrots

Brigitte, age 36, daughter of Pierre Boudrot of Pigiguit, came to Louisiana with husband Basile Landry, age 41, and their two daughters, ages 12 and 2.  They, along with other members of the Breau clan, were compelled to settle at San Luìs de Natchez, far up the Mississippi in what is now Concordia Parish.  But they did not remain there.  They crossed the Atchafalaya Basin to the Attakapas District in the 1770s.  

Marie-Madeleine, age 35, Brigitte's sister, came to Louisiana with husband Joseph Landry, age 38, and three children ranging in age from 13 to 3.  They, too, went to San Luìs de Natchez, where Joseph died in c1771.  Marie-Madeleine remarried to Pierre-Sylvain, son of fellow Acadians Pierre Cloistre dit Clouâtre and Marguerite LeBlanc, probably at San Gabriel on the river below Baton Rouge, date unrecorded.  

Augustin dit Rémi, son of Pierre Boudrot of Pigiguit, was a 13-year-old orphan when he came to Louisiana from Maryland with the Breau clan.  He followed them to San Luìs de Natchez, but he, too, did not remain on the river.  In the 1770s, he moved to the Attakapas District, where he married Judith-Philippe, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Martin and Jeanne Comeaux of Annapolis Royal, in c1777.  

~

The great majority of Boudrots who came to Louisiana arrived a generation after the first of them reached the colony.  These were Boudrots from Minas whom the British had exiled to Virginia in the fall of 1755, deported to England the following year, and repatriated to France in 1763; and also Boudrots from Pigiguit and Île St.-Jean whom the British deported to France in 1758-59.  After enduring life in the mother country for a quarter of a century, they took up the Spanish government's offer to start a new life in Louisiana.  Dozens of them, including over 20 families, reached New Orleans aboard every one of the Seven Ships of 1785.  Only four other families--the Héberts, Trahans, Aucoins, and Bourgs--outnumbered the Boudrots on the Seven Ships expedition:

Marguerite Boudrot, age 48, crossed on Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in July.  With her were second husband Charles Landry, age 56, and seven children, ages 23 to 6.  They went to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, and remained on the river. 

Françoise-Marie Boudrot, age 45, widow of Joseph Clossinet and Marin Dugas, crossed on Le Bon Papa with a Clossinet daughter, age 25, and a Dugas son, age 11.  They also went to Manchac, where Françoise remarried to fellow Acadian Charles Daigle, widower of Anne-Marie Vincent, in February 1786.  They then moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, where she died in September 1798, in her 50s.  

Anne Boudrot, age 40, widow of Jacques Haché, crossed on Le Bon Papa with two daughters, ages 15 and 11.  They went to Manchac and remained on the river. 

Jean-Baptiste Boudrot, age 32, and wife Marie-Modeste Trahan, age 36, came to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa with three children--Marie-Félicité, age 8, Jean-Constant, age 6, and Marguerite-Marie, age 2.  They went to the Baton Rouge area, where Jean-Baptiste remarried to Anne-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre Henry and his first wife Marie-Madeleine Pitre and widow of Théodore Hébert, in February 1786, so his first wife Marie-Modeste died soon after the family reached the colony.  In the late 1790s, Jean-Baptiste moved his family to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

Paul-Dominique Boudrot, age 22, and wife Marie-Olive Landry, age 18, crossed on Le Bon Papa with their infant son, Paul-Marie.  When they reached New Orleans, Marie-Olive was pregnant; son Joseph was born probably at Manchac in early January 1786.  The family left Manchac in the early 1790s and moved to upper Bayou Lafourche, where they had many more sons.  Paul-Dominique's father Zacharie and younger brothers Charles and Benjamin-Hilaire crossed on a later ship, L'Amitié, and went to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Paul-Marie, age 13, son of François Boudrot and Euphrosine Barillot, crossed on Le Bon Papa with his mother, stepfather Charles Broussard, and four step-siblings.  He was counted with them at Baton Rouge in the summer of 1788, but he did not remain there.  He followed his once-again-widowed mother to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

Marie-Adélaïde, a 5-year-old orphan, daughter of Louis Boudrot, crossed on Le Bon Papa with her maternal grandfather, Jean-Baptiste Dugas, her grandmother, and an aunt.  They went to Manchac, but Marie-Adélaïde moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, where she married twice, first to Eustache Carret, son of fellow Acadians Ignace Carret and Madeleine Clémenceau, in March 1796, and then to Jean Baptiste, son of fellow Acadians Grégoire Blanchard and Marie-Marguerite Livois and widower of Marie-Modeste Aucoin, in July 1813.  

.

Anne Boudrot, age 38, crossed on Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  With her were husband Paul LeBlanc, age 40, two daughters, ages 3 and infant, and a 23-year-old Trahan niece.  They went to Baton Rouge before moving to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

François-Xavier Boudrot, age 25, and wife Marguerite Dugas, age 26, crossed on Le Beaumont with no children.  His widowed mother and four younger siblings sailed to Louisiana on a later ship, L'Amitié, and went to upper Bayou Lafourche.   François-Xavier remarried and remained at Manchac, where he had more children.  

.

Élisabeth, or Isabelle, Boudrot, age 56, widow of Olivier Thibodeau, crossed on L'Amitié with her was a 17-year-old daughter.  They went to Manchac, but the daughter moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Two daughters of Pierre Boudrot and Madeleine Bourg of Île St.-Jean--Marie, age 30, wife of Christophe Delaune, age 34, and unmarried Céleste-Sibilias, age 20--crossed on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, with Marie's husband and two of their children, ages 11 and 1.  Céleste married into the Guidry family at St.-Jacques and into the Augeron on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Marie remained with her husband and children at St.-Jacques.  

.

Victor Boudrot, age 55, and second wife Geneviève Richard, age 37, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  With them were six children by both of his wives--Hélène-Marie-Rose, age 31, wife of Frenchman François-Pierre Le Lorre, age 30, who also came along, Joseph, age 27, Cécile, age 15, Geneviève-Sophie, age 11, Noël-Victor, age 9, and infant Anne-Jeanne--as well as Victor's stepdaughter Geneviève-Marguerite Pitre, age 17.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  Victor and Geneviève had no more children in Louisiana.  Their younger daughters married into the Calegan, Clément, Navarre, and Silvy families and settled on Bayou Lafourche.  Their sons also moved on to Bayou Lafourche, but there is no evidence that oldest son Joseph married.  

.

Victor's first cousin Ignace Boudrot, age 36, and wife Anne Pierson, age 26, a Frenchwoman, crossed on La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  With them was son Charles, age 2.  They went to Bayou des Écores, where they had another son. 

.

Most of the Boudrots who went to river settlements in 1785 moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, but some of them remained on the river:  

Marguerite Boudreaux, widow of Charles Landry, died in Ascension Parish in December 1826, in her early 90s. 

Descendants of Ignace BOUDREAUX (c1748-?; Michel, Charles)

Ignace Boudrot, grandson of Charles Boudrot and great-grandson of the family's Acadian progenitor, Michel, was born probably in British Nova Scotia in c1748.  In August 1752, he was living at Grande-Anse on the south coast of Île St.-Jean with the family of his uncle Antoine Boudrot.  In 1758, he was deported with them to France aboard the British transport Supply, which reached St.-Malo in March 1759; he was 10 years old, though he appears as age 8 on the passenger roll.  Ignace lived at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo, from 1759 to 1772.  In January 1772, now grown and a carpenter by trade, he secured permission from French authorities to work at Morlaix, where he became a member of the Royal Artillery Corps.  He married Frenchwoman Anne Pierson in c1780.  They moved first to the port city of Nantes and then to the Acadian enclave at Belle-Île-en-Mer, off the southwestern coast of Brittany, where Spanish officials counted them in September 1784.  Ignace sailed to Louisiana in 1785 with his wife and 2-year-old son Charles aboard La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships.  They settled at the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, where his first cousin Victor settled.  Anne gave him at least one more son in Louisiana.  One wonders what became of them. 

1

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste, born in France in c1781, died in St.-Nicolas Parish, Nantes, in October 1783, age 2. 

2

Charles, born in St.-Nicolas Parish, Nantes, France, in September 1783 and baptized by the Pointe Coupée priest who served the Bayou des Écores community in June 1792, may have been the Charles Boudreaux who died in Ascension Parish in September 1830; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded this burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Charles was 50 years old when he died; Charles, son of Ignace, would have been 47.  Or he may have been the Charles Boudreaux who died near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in June 1857; the priest who recorded this burial, and who also did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Charles died at "age 75 years"; Charles, son of Ignace, would have been 73.  One wonders if this Charles ever married.  If not, this line of the family died with him. 

3

Youngest son Louis, born probably at Bayou des Écores in September 1789 and baptized by a Pointe Coupée priest in May 1790, may have died young. 

Descendants of François-Xavier BOUDREAUX (1760-1798; Michel, Charles, Jean-Baptiste)

François-Xavier, called Xavier, second son of Antoine Boudrot and Brigitte Apart, born at Trigavou, France, near St.-Malo, in March 1760, crossed on Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, with his bride, Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadians Claude Dugas and his second wife Marguerite Cyr.  The couple had married at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, near Nantes, in May 1785, only weeks before their ship set sail.  Marguerite was a native of Boulogne-sur-Mer in Normandy.  They settled at San Gabriel de Manchac, just south of the Baton Rouge District, where Marguerite died in August 1786 after giving birth to daughter Louise-Isabelle, who followed her mother to the grave two months later.  Francois-Xavier remarried to Marie-Francoise, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph LeBlanc and Anne Hébert, at San Gabriel in May 1787.  Marie-Francoise was a native of St.-Servan, also near St.-Malo, and came to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  Their daughters married into the Acoste, Tircuit, and Trosclair families.  Francois-Xavier died near St.-Gabriel in February 1798; he was only 37 years old.  Some of his sons and grandsons also died young, and only one of them may have married; they also settled in Iberville Parish, but none of the lines, except for its blood, seems to have survived. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, born near St.-Gabriel in July 1788, died at St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in June 1810.  He was only 22 years old and did not marry.  

2

Jérôme, born near St.-Gabriel in June 1791, married Marcellite, daughter of German Creole Henri Edelmer, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in March 1817.  Their son Jean Debus or Debuys was born near St. Gabriel in September 1819, and Joseph Azolin in February 1826.  Their daughter married into the Joly family.  Jérôme died at St. Gabriel in December 1835; he was only 44 years old.  Neither of his sons seems to have married, so this line of the family, except for its blood, probably did not survive. 

2a

Joseph Azolin died near St. Gabriel in August 1844.  He was only 18 years old and did not marry. 

2b

Jean Debuys died near St. Gabriel in May 1850.  He was 30 years old and did not marry. 

3

Pierre, born near St.-Gabriel in February 1797, also may have died young. 

4

Youngest son Louis, born posthumously near St.-Gabriel in February 1798 less than three weeks after his father died, may have died young. 

Félix BOUDREAUX (c1742?-c1787; Michel, ?)

Félix Boudrot, born perhaps at L'Assomption, Pigiguit, in c1742, may have been exiled to Virginia as a teenager in 1755, deported to England the following year, and repatriated to Morlaix, France, as a young man in 1763.  He may have married Anne-Gertrude, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Thériot, in France in the early 1760s and took her and their children to Belle-Île-en-Mer, off the southern coast of Brittany, in the 1760s.  He came to Louisiana in 1785 probably as a widower, without children, and went to Ascension, where he married (or remarried to) 20-year-old Françoise-Gertrude, daughter of fellow Acadians René Guillot and his second wife Françoise Bourg,, in October 1786.  Félix died probably at Ascension by May 1787, when his wife remarried there.  They probably had no children, and none of his children from his first wife seem to have survived childhood, so his line of the family probably died with him. 

~

During the early antebellum period, a Boudreaux settled in Pointe Coupee Parish, across the river from Bayou des Écores, where Ignace Boudreaux and his family had gone after they came to Louisiana from France.  One wonders if they were kin to one another, and if so, how: 

Descendants of Evariste BOUDREAUX (c1812-1860; Michel?, Charles?, ?, Ignace?)

Evariste Boudreaux, perhaps a grandson of Ignace of Bayou des Écores, perhaps not even an Acadian Boudreaux, was born probably in Pointe Coupee Parish in c1812.  He married Julie Major in a civil ceremony probably in Pointe Coupee Parish by the late 1830s.  Their daughters married into the Chase, Cornu, and St. Germain families.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in Pointe Coupee Parish counted 37 slaves--18 males and 19 females, all black, ranging in age from 50 to 2--on Evariste Boudreau's plantation.  Evariste died in Pointe Coupee Parish in May 1860; he was only 48 years old.  Half of his sons did not live long enough to create families of their own.   

1

Oldest son Jean Joseph, called John, born in Pointe Coupee Parish in September 1840, married Augustine Anaïs, called Anaïs, daughter of Acadian Victor Hébert and his Creole wife Marie Odile Chapoton, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in November 1860. 

2

Pierre Guillaume, born in Pointe Coupee Parish in September 1842, died in Pointe Coupee Parish in October 1861.  He was only 19 years old and did not marry.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

3

Evariste, fils, born in Pointe Coupee Parish in January 1847, died at age 11 in September 1858.

4

Youngest son Isotel Evariste was born in Pointe Coupee Parish in August 1858. 

~

During the early antebellum period, a Boudreaux whose father had come from France in 1785 returned to the river after living on the western prairies:  

Descendants of Simon-Hippolyte BOUDREAUX (1788-1854; Michel, Claude, Michel le jeune, Michel, fils, Joseph)

Simon-Hippolyte, called Hippolyte, eldest son of Jean-Charles Boudreaux and his first wife Marguerite-Anne LeBlanc, born at Ascension in November 1788, married cousin Marie Henriette, called Henriette, daughter of Simon Boudreaux and Monique Dupuis, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in August 1808.  They moved to St. Martin Parish, west of the Atchafalaya Basin, soon after their marriage and settled on upper Bayou Teche near present-day Breaux Bridge.  In the late 1810s, they returned to the river.  Their daughters married into the Capdeville, Courege, and St. Pillac families.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in St. James Parish counted 7 slaves--all female, all black, ranging in age from 30 to 4--on Hyppolite Boudreau's farm in the parish's Eastern District.  Hippolyte died "at his home" in St. James Parish in November 1854; he was 68 years old.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in St. James Parish counted 13 slaves--6 males and 7 females, 8 blacks and 5 mulattoes, ages 42 to 3, living in 7 houses--on Widow Hp Boudreau's farm in the parish's Right Bank District 9; these probably were Henriette Boudreaux's slaves.  Only two of Hippolyte's four sons lived long enough to create families of their own.  They settled in St. James and Ascension parishes. 

1

Oldest son Hippolyte Marcellin, called Marcellin, born at Anse La Butte, St. Martin Parish, in March 1809, married Marie Sylvanie, called Sylvanie, daughter of fellow Acadians Louis Gautreaux and Marie LeBlanc, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in October 1830.  They settled on the river near the boundary of St. James and Ascension parishes.  Their son Hippolyte le jeune, a twin, was born in St. James Parish in February 1835, Louis Félix, called Félix, in Ascension Parish in December 1836, Jean Ulgère, called Ulgère, in November 1838, Joseph Aurelien near Convent, St. James Parish, in March 1841, and Joseph Camille in January 1850.  Their daughters married into the Gaudin, Letulle, Lusk, and Pertuit families. 

1a

Félix married Anglo-American Anna Griffin probably in Ascension Parish in the late 1850s or early 1860s.  Their son Louis Alfred was born near Gonzales, Ascension Parish, in November 1862. 

1b

During the War of 1861-65, Hippolyte le jeune, a resident of Ascension Parish when he enlisted at Baton Rouge in October 1861, served as a corporal in Company H of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Cavalry, raised in East Baton Rouge Parish, which fought in Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana, and Alabama.  Hippolyte le jeune married Feliciana, daughter of Joseph Yarbrough and Élisabeth Gonzales, at the Gonzales church, Ascension Parish, in November 1866.  Their son Joseph Willie was born near Gonzales in August 1869. 

1c

Ulgère died near Gonzales, Ascension Parish, in February 1864.  He was only 25 years old.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

2

Nicolas Clairville, born at Grand Pointe, St. Martin Parish, in June 1811, died at age 2 in November 1813.

3

Hippolyte Evariste, called Evariste, born at Grand Pointe, St. Martin Parish, in January 1814, married Anne Mathilde, called Mathilde, daughter of Joseph Martin Capdeville and his Acadian wife Modeste Henry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in February 1839.  Their son Joseph was born in Ascension Parish in July 1840, and Hyacinthe Scot in September 1847.  Evariste died in Ascension Parish in July 1848; he was only 34 years old. 

During the War of 1861-65, Hyacinthe Scott, called H. S. in Confederate records, served briefly in Company A of the 3rd Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Iberville Parish, which fought in Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana.  H. S. enlisted at Princeville, Mississippi, in late June 1862, a substitute for Hermogène LeBlanc, but H. S. was only 14 1/2 years old at the time of his enlistment!  He was discharged in late July probably after Confederate authorities discovered his true age.  He married Spanish Creole Adèle Lopez and settled in Ascension Parish. 

4

Youngest son Narcisse, baptized at the St. James church, St. James Parish, age 10 months, in July 1818, probably died young. 

~

During the late antebellum period, a Boudreaux from upper Bayou Lafourche whose father had been born on the river, "returned" to the river and had many sons of his own:

Descendants of Leufroi BOUDREAUX (c1818-1900; Michel, Charles, Jean-Baptiste, Zacharie, Paul-Domingue)

Leufroi, son of Joseph-Marie Boudreaux and Anne Josèphe, called Nanette, Dugas, born probably in Assumption Parish in c1818, married Marguerite Eulalie, called Eulalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Arsène Hébert and his Creole wife Marguerite Cécile Judice, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1842.  They settled near the boundary between Ascension and Iberville parishes before moving to the Gonzales area of Ascension Parish by the mid-1860s.  Their daughter married into the Landry family.  Leufroi's older sons served in the Donaldsonville Artillery during the War of 1861-65.  Leufroi died probably in Ascension Parish in 1900, in his early 80s.

1

Oldest son Octave Crisse, born in Ascension Parish in January 1843, served in the Donaldsonville Artillery during the War of 1861-65.  Octave, who, according to U.S. army records, had a light complexion, light hair, blue eyes, and stood five feet, eight inches, enlisted in the battery in September 1861 and, except for a "furlough of indulgence" in early 1864, remained with his unit throughout its service with General Robert E. Lee's army in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania--one of Lee's Louisiana Tigers.  Octave, in fact, surrendered with Lee's army at Appomattox Courthouse in April 1865.  After the surrender, he and his comrades made their way home as best they could.  Octave married cousin Olivia, daughter of fellow Acadians Amand Prudent Babin and Marguerite Celina Rivet, at New River, Ascension Parish, in October 1865; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son René Achille was born near Gonzales, Ascension Parish, in November 1870. 

2

Joseph Gustave, called Gustave, born in Ascension Parish in November 1844, served with brother Octave in the Donaldsonville Artillery during the War of 1861-65.  Gustave, too young to enlist in 1861, joined the battery at New Orleans in April 1862 and soon was serving with older brother Octave in Virginia, so he, too, was one of General R. E. Lee's Louisiana Tigers.  Gustave served with the battery during its many marches, campaigns, and bloody battles until the final days of the war.  In April 1865, he was captured at Hatcher's Run, Virginia, the day Grant's army broke through the Confederate lines around Petersburg.  The Federals sent Gustave to nearby City Point, Virginia, and then on to the prisoner-of-war camp at Point Lookout, Maryland.  Not until June was he allowed to take the oath of allegiance to the United States government.  After the Federals released him, Gustave made his way home as best he could. 

3

Joseph Frédéric was born in Ascension Parish in February 1850. 

4

Mames Théophile was born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in August 1851. 

5

Youngest son Arsène was born in Ascension Parish in December 1854.

~

Other BOUDREAUXs on the River

Local church and civil records make it difficult to link some Boudreauxs on the river with known lines of the family there:  

Philippe Boudreaux married Catherine Alexis.  Their son Charles was born at Ascension in July 1798.  

Marguerite or Marie Boudreaux married Joseph LeBlanc and settled at St.-Gabriel by the early 1800s. 

François Boudreaux, fils died in Pointe Coupee Parish, age 10 months, in September 1839.  Was Evariste Boudreaux of Pointe Coupee François, fils's uncle? 

John R., also called Louis, Boudreaux married French Creole Marie Elise, Elida, or Eliza, called Eliza, Nereaux of Grosse Tete in a civil ceremony probably in Iberville Parish by the early 1840s, and sanctified the marriage at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, in February 1852.  Their son Louis was born near Plaquemine in September or October 1848, Joseph Benjamin in March 1859, and Édouard Toussaint in November 1865. 

Joachim Boudreaux married Ziline Livré probably in Pointe Coupee Parish by the mid-1840s.  Their son Valérien was born in Pointe Coupee Parish in August 1846.  One wonders if Joachim was kin to Evariste and François Boudreaux of Pointe Coupee.

Clément Boudreaux married Élizabeth Alleman, widow of Antoine Vega, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in February 1855.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couples' parents' names.  Clément's son Albert, perhaps by an earlier spouse, had been born in c1851 but died in Ascension Parish, age 2, in September 1853.  Clément seems to have remarried to Aglae Sans or Schanz probably in Ascension Parish in the late 1850s.  Their son Rodolfo Englebert, also called Joseph, was born in Ascension Parish in November 1858 but died the following March.  Clément may have remarried again--perhaps his third marriage--to fellow Acadian Julienne Melançon.  Their son Joseph Clément was born in Ascension Parish in July 1869. 

Prudent Boudreaux died near Convent, St. James Parish, in July 1855; he was only three years old.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the parents' names. 

Ernestine Boudreaux married Phlegie [Flagille], son of Acadian Michel Bernard Gaudin, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in April 1856.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couples' parents' names. 

LOUISIANA:  LAFOURCHE VALLEY SETTLEMENTS

Most of the Boudrots who came to Louisiana from France in 1785 chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche.  The result was one of the largest concentrations of an Acadian family in South Louisiana: 

Marie Boudrot, age 57, crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  With her were husband Joseph Trahan, age 59, and three children, ages 19, 18, and 11.  Marie died probably at Lafourche in the late 1790s, in her late 60s. 

Marie Daigle, age 44, widow of Jean-Baptiste Boudrot, crossed on La Bergère with two children--Marie-Rose, age 21, and Jean-François, age 11.  Marie remarried to Pierre, son of fellow Acadian Cyprien Thériot and widower of Élisabeth Trahan, at Ascension in September 1786.  Marie died probably at Lafourche by June 1790, when her husband remarried there.  Jean-François remained on the Lafourche but evidently did not marry. 

Cécile Boudrot, age 38, widow of Charles Richard, crossed on La Bergère with a 14-year-old daughter and her 18-year-old half-brother Joseph Boudrot.  They crossed the Atchafalaya Basin to the Attakapas District by the early 1790s. 

.

Félix Boudrot, age 56, and second wife Madeleine Hébert, age 56, crossed on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in September.  They had no unmarried children with them, but his married daughter crossed on the same vessel, and his married son Joseph-Simon crossed later on La Caroline.  Félix remarried--again--to Luce-Perpétué, daughter of fellow Acadian François Bourg and widow of Pierre Hébert, at Lafourche in August 1787; he was 58 years old at the time of the wedding.  She gave him no more children.  Félix died at Lafourche by November 1789, when his second wife remarried again. 

Félicité Boudrot, age 31, Félix's daughter by his first wife, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with husband Jean Lejeune, age 29, and no children.  They remained childless.

Jean-Charles Boudrot of L'Assomption, Pigiguit, age 52, perhaps Félix's younger brother, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with second wife Marguerite-Victoire Guédry, age 34, and five children by both of his wives--Joseph-Marie, age 21, Henriette-Charlotte, age 13, Marguerite-Renée, age 4, Pierre-David, age 2, and Félix-Marie, an infant.  Jean-Charles and Marguerite-Victoire had another daughter after they settled in Louisiana, but no more sons.  Their daughters married into the Usé family.  Jean-Charles died at Lafourche by January 1791, when his wife remarried to Spaniard Grégorio Chico there.  She and her Boudrot children remained on the bayou.  

Marie Boudrot, age 46, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with husband Jean-Baptiste Daigle, age 52, and two children, ages 15 and 11.  Marie died probably at Lafourche a few years after she settled there. 

Madeleine-Josèphe Boudrot, age 40, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with husband Charles-Olivier Guillot, age 38, and three children, ages 14, 12, and 10. 

Jean-Baptiste Boudrot, age 25, and wife Marguerite Bedel, age 23, a Frenchwoman, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with two children--Jean-Baptiste, fils, age 2, and Jean-Charles, an infant.  Jean-Baptiste, père's widowed mother, stepfather, and two younger brothers also crossed on Le St.-Rémi and went to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Jean-Baptiste, père and Marguerite had more children at Lafourche.  

Marie Boudrot, age 24, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with an infant son.  Her husband, Frenchman Jean-François Havard of Nantes, crossed on a later ship, L'Amitié. 

Joseph-Marie Boudrot, age 17, and brother Charles, age 14, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with stepfather Honoré Comeau, age 71, and their mother, Anastasie Célestin dit Bellemère, age 45.

.

Zacharie Boudrot, age 64, and second wife Marguerite Vallois, age 47, probably a Frenchwoman, crossed on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in November.  With him were son Benjamin-Hilaire, age 15, and his stepson, Jacques-Olivier Dubois, age 19.  Zacharie and Marguerite had no more children in Louisiana.  Zacharie's older son Paul-Dominique had crossed on Le Bon Papa and settled at St.-Gabriel de Manchac before moving on to the upper bayou. 

Charles Boudrot, age 21, Zacharie's son, crossed on L'Amitié with wife Marie-Anne Gautrot, age 19, and their infant son, Charles-Marie.  Despite their young age, Charles and Marie-Anne had no more children in Louisiana. 

Brigitte Apart, age 60, widow of Antoine Boudrot, crossed on L'Amitié with five children, some of them grown, all of them unmarried--Charles-Michel, age 24, Marie-Madeleine, age 22, Joseph, age 19, Étienne, age 18, and Marguerite-Josèphe, age 16.  Her older son François-Xavier Boudrot, had sailed to Louisiana on an earlier ship, Le Beaumont, and remained on the river.  Brigitte died soon after she reached Louisiana.  Daughter Marie-Madeleine married into the Rassicot family but died at age 23, perhaps from the rigors of childbirth.  One of Brigitte's younger sons created a large family on the bayou.  

Marin Boudrot, age 53, and wife Pélagie Barillot, age 39, crossed on L'Amitié with two children--Étienne, age 13, and Marie-Anne, an infant.  Marin died at Lafourche in October 1786, and Pélagie died a few years later.  Their daughter married into the Pitre family.  Their son remained on the bayou.  Daughter Marie Anne, wife of Jean Baptiste Pitre, died in Assumption Parish in November 1858; the priest who recorded her burial said that Marie died at "age 80 and some years," but she was "only" in her mid-70s. 

Marguerite Boudrot, age 46, widow of Benjamin Pitre, crossed on L'Amitié with six children, ages 23 to 4. 

Marin's younger brother Étienne Boudrot, age 42, and wife Marguerite Thibodeau, age 40, crossed on L'Amitié with seven children--Joseph-Marie, age 19, Cécile-Marguerite, age 17, Blaise-Julien, age 16, Anne-Henriette, age 14, Jean-Étienne, age 5, Marguerite-Susanne, age 3, and Yves-Cyprien, an infant.  Étienne and Marguerite had another daughter in Louisiana but no more sons.  Daughter Marguerite-Susanne probably did not survive the voyage over or died soon after she reached the colony.  Étienne's other daughters married into the Ayo, Boudreaux, LeBlanc, and Roger families.  Étienne died in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1825; he was 84 years old.  Daughter Anne Henriette, widow of Pierre-Honoré LeBlanc and wife of Jean Baptiste Boudreaux, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1842; she was 70 years old; her succession inventory was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse in February. 

Joseph Boudrot, age 40, and wife Marguerite Richard dit Sapin, age 42, crossed on L'Amitié with four children and an orphan--Marie-Marthe, age 20, Jean-Charles, age 18, Jean-Joseph, age 9, Sophie, age 3, and Marie Hébert, age 12.  Marguerite was pregnant when the family crossed.  Son Simon was born either at New Orleans or Lafourche.  Joseph and Marguerite had no more children in Louisiana.   

.

Amand Boudrot of L'Assomption, Pigiguit, age 55, blind since age 12, Jean-Charles's older brother, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  With him were second wife Marie-Perrine Nogues, a Frenchwoman, age 35, and five children by both of his wives--Jean-Baptiste, age 15, François-Joseph, age 14, Marie, age 6, Joseph-Alain, age 4, and Hélène, an infant.  Daughter Hélène may not have survived the voyage over, or she died soon after the family reached the colony.  Most of their fellow passengers went to the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, but Amand and his family chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche, where his brother had gone, or they may have gone to Bayou des Écores and moved on to the Lafourche soon after they got there.  Amand and Marie-Perrine had no more children in Louisiana.  She died probably at Lafourche in the late 1780s.  Amand did not remarry.  Son Joseph-Alain married twice and moved from upper Bayou Lafourche to the western prairies during the early antebellum period.  Amand's older sons remained on the bayou.  Daughter Marie, wife of François Malo Aucoin, died in Lafourche Parish in June 1853; she was 73 years old. 

.

Olivier Boudrot, age 74, and second wife Anne Dugas, age 59, crossed on La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  With him were two unmarried children--Marie, age 18, and Jean-Baptiste, age 17.  Olivier died at Lafourche in the late 1780s.  Anne did not remarry.  Daughter Marie married into the Brunet family.  

Marie Boudrot, age 40, widow of Jean-Charles Thériot, crossed alone on La Caroline.  She may have remarried into the Goyor family at St.-Jacques on the river in September 1793.  They settled on the bayou and probably had no children.  

Joseph-Simon Boudrot, age 22, Félix of Le St.-Rémi's only son, and wife Marie-Julienne Brossier, age 20, who was a Frenchwoman, crossed on La Caroline without any children  They had a number of children in Louisiana.  

.

Félix Boudrot, age unrecorded, may have come alone on one of the Seven Ships and settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married a fellow Acadian in late 1786.

.

The Boudreauxs from France created a third center of family settlement in the Bayou Lafourche valley that became the largest one of all:    

Descendants of Joseph BOUDREAUX (1744-?; Michel, Claude, Michel le jeune)

Joseph, son of Michel Boudrot, fils and Claire Comeau, was born probably at Minas in c1744.  In the fall of 1755, when he was 11, British forces deported Joseph and his family to Virginia, where they languished on disease-infested vessels in the James River until the Virginia authorities sent them on the England in early 1756.  There they were treated like common criminals and held in port cities until the French and Indian War ended in early 1763.  In May of that year, now 19 years old, Joseph was repatriated to France with his fellow exiles in England; he and his younger brother Michel disembarked from La Dorothée at St.-Malo on May 23--the only surviving members of their immediate family.  Joseph became a carpenter and married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Richard dit Sapin and Cécile Gautrot, at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in July 1763.  They remained in the St.-Malo area until the early 1770s, when they participated in a settlement venture in Poitou.  After the venture failed, they retreated to Nantes in November 1775 with other disgruntled Poitou Acadians and survived in the port city as best they could.  Joseph and Marguerite had 11 children in France, but 7 of them died there.  In 1785, they came to Louisiana with four of their children aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships from France.  Marguerite was pregnant during the crossing, and another son, born either at New Orleans or Lafourche, was baptized at Ascension the following February.  Their daughters married into the Crochet and Dagbert families.  Two of Joseph's three sons married and created families of their own in Ascension and Assumption parishes.  Most of his grandsons also settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, but one of them crossed the Atchafalaya Basin in the late 1800s or early 1810s and lived, for a time, in St. Martin Parish before moving to St. James Parish.  

1

Oldest surviving son Jean-Charles, called Charles, born at St.-Servan, France, in November 1767, crossed with his family aboard L'Amitié and followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marguerite-Anne, daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre LeBlanc and Marie Landry, in May 1787.  Marguerite also was a native of St.-Servan and had come to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié.  Their son Simon-Hippolyte, called Hippolyte, was born at Ascension in November 1788, and Jean-Charles, fils in February 1790.  Charles remarried to Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre Bertrand and Catherine Bourg, at Ascension in February 1793.  Marie was a native of Châtellerault, in Poitou, and had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships from France.  Their son Louis-Narcisse, called Narcisse, was born at Assumption in September 1793, and Étienne-Valentin, called Valentin, in December 1795 but died and was buried at New Orleans the following July, a "very young child."  His older son lived on the western prairies before settling on the river.  His younger son remained on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

1a

Simon Hippolyte, by his father's first wife, married cousin Marie Henriette, called Henriette, daughter of fellow Acadians Simon Boudreaux and Monique Dupuy, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in August 1808.  They moved to St. Martin Parish, west of the Atchafalaya Basin, soon after their marriage but returned to the river in the late 1810s and settled near the boundary of St. James and Ascension parishes. 

1b

Narcisse, by his father's second wife, married Angélique Julie, called Julie, daughter of Joseph Adam and his Acadian wife Marguerite Crochet, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in April 1815.  Their son Célestin Lucien was born in Assumption Parish in February 1817, Louis Valière in August 1819, Maximilien in July 1821, twins Joseph Eugène, called Joe, and Théodule Ignace in July 1823, and Ursin or Valsin Joachim in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1828.  Narcisse died in Assumption Parish in June 1833; the Plattenville priest who recorded his burial said that Narcisse was 42 years old when he died, but he was only 39.  Four of his six sons created families of their own and settled in Assumption and Lafourche Interior parishes. 

Louis Valière married Marie Carmelite, called Carmelite, daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre Barrilleaux and Marcellite Foret, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1842.  Their son Louis Augustave was born in Assumption Parish in August 1852.  Their daughter married into the Blanchard family.  Louis may have died in Assumption Parish in October 1853; if so, he would have been only 34 years old at the time of his death. 

Joseph Eugène married cousin Marie Azélie, called Azélie, daughter of Marcellin Adam and his Acadian wife Marcellite Hébert, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in November 1849.  Their son Arthur was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1851, and Charles Édouard in February 1853 but died at age 14 1/2 in September 1867.

Maximilien married Antoinette, daughter of Bertrand Mars and his Acadian wife Geneviève Doiron, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in July 1850.  Their son Valsin Enet was born in Assumption Parish in February 1852, and a newborn child, name unrecorded, perhaps theirs, and perhaps a son, died in February 1860.

Valsin married Eliska, daughter of François Ledet and his Acadian wife Scholastique LeBlanc, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1852, and sanctified the marriage at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in May 1854.  Their son Oscar was born in Lafourche Parish in January 1854.  Valsin remarried to Clara, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Rosémond LeBlanc and Carmelite Bergeron and widow of Vincent Madere, at the Thibodaux church in April 1857.  Their son Pascal Nelson was born in Lafourche Parish in May 1858 but died at age 1 in July 1859.  Valsin died in Lafourche Parish in January 1863; he was only 35 years old.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

2

Jean-Joseph, called Joseph and Joson, born at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, near Nantes, France, in July 1776, married Eulalie-Martine, daughter of fellow Acadians Ambroise Dugas and Marie Pitre, at Assumption in June 1803.  Eulalie had been born aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships.  Their son Ambroise was born in Assumption Parish in July 1812, and Edmond in c1815.  They also had a son named Hermogène, unless he was Ambroise.  Their daughters married into the Pertuit family and perhaps into the Frion family as well.  Jean Joseph died in Assumption Parish in October 1821; he was only 45 years old. 

2a

Hermogène married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Marie Barrilleaux and Madeleine Landry, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1834.  Their son Joseph Vileor, called Vileor, was born in Assumption Parish in November 1835, and Jean Baptiste Aristide in September 1840.  Their daughter married into the Simoneaux family.  Hermogène remarried to Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians François Aucoin and Rosalie Landry and widow of Valsin Frioux, at the Plattenville church in November 1841.  Their son Joseph Ulysse was born in Assumption Parish in June 1843.  Their daughter married into the Barbier family.  Hermogène remarried again--his third marriage--to Carmelite Albarau or Albarado at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in October 1853.  Their son Joseph Lucien was born in Assumption Parish in August 1855. 

Vileor, by his father's first wife, married Marie, daughter of Pierrique Cavalier, Cavaliere, Cavaliero, or Cavallero and Marie Falcon, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in December 1855.  Their son Jean Baptiste Valère was born in Assumption Parish in December 1858, Ulysse in September 1860, Joseph André in February 1868, and Antoine Perique in January 1870 but died in March.  They were living near Pierre Part, north of Lake Verret, on the eve of the War of 1761 but may have returned to the bayou. 

2b

Edmond died in Assumption Parish in March 1835.  He was only 20 years old and probably did not marry.  

3

Youngest son Simon, baptized at Ascension in February 1786, only three months after the family reached New Orleans, came to Louisiana in utero.  He died in Assumption Parish in February 1816, age 30, and probably did not marry. 

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX (1759-1799; Michel, Claude, Jean dit Lami)

Jean-Baptiste, fils, elder son of Jean-Baptiste Boudrot and Anastasie Célestin dit Bellemère, was born in England in October 1759.  In May 1763, at age 4, he was repatriated to France with his family aboard L'Ambition and settled at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo.  He followed his fellow Acadians to Poitou in 1773, remained there after most of them left in 1775-76, and married Marguerite, daughter of Frenchman François Bedel dit Picard and Jeanne ____ of Targé, Poitou, at Targé in June 1778.  They did not remain in Poitou.  Spanish authorities counted him, his wife, and a son at Nantes in September 1784.  He and his wife, with two sons now, sailed to Louisiana in 1785 aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships from France.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Marguerite gave Jean-Baptiste more children in Louisiana, including four more sons.  Their daughters married into the Lis and Williamson families.  Jean-Baptiste died at Assumption in August 1799; he was only 39 years old.  Only two of his six sons seems to have fathered sons of their own.  They settled in Lafourche Interior Parish.  A grandson moved down to Terrebonne Parish. 

1

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste III, born probably at Nantes in c1783, does not appear in the Valenzuéla censuses of 1788 and 1791 with the rest of his family, so he probably died young.  He may not even have survived the crossing from France.  

2

Jean-Charles, baptized at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, near Nantes, in March 1785, also fails to appear with the rest of the family in the Valenzuéla censuses of 1788 and 1791, so he, too, may not have survived the crossing from France.

3

Laurent, baptized at Ascension, age unrecorded, in February 1787, married Marie Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Thibodeaux and Marie Dugas, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in July 1810.  One wonders if they were that rare Acadian couple who had no children. 

4

Antoine, born at Lafourche in c1789, married Marie-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph-François Michel and Geneviève LeBlanc and widow of Jean-Louis Daigle, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1814.  They lived near the boundary of Assumption and Lafourche Interior Parish.  Their son Jean Baptiste Gédéon, called Gédéon, was born in October 1814, François Hermogène in March 1821, Mathieu Auxilien, called Achille Sylvain or Sylvanie, in February 1823, and Pierre Marcellus in June 1825.  Their daughters married into the Bonvillain, Hébert, LeBlanc, and Thibodeaux families.  Antoine died in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1849; he was 60 years old. 

4a

Gédéon married Marcelline or Marcellite, daughter of fellow Acadian Marie Adèle Sonnier, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1837.  Their son Augustin was born in Assumption Parish in December 1837, Joseph François, called François, in June 1840, and Ernest in April 1842.  They also had a son named Villier, born probably in the late 1830s, unless he was Augustin.  In June 1860, federal census takers in Assumption Parish counted 3 slaves--a male and 3 females, all black, ages 22, 2, and 4 months, living in 1 house--on Gédéon Boudreaux's farm in the parish's Fourth Ward. 

Villier married Zéolide, daughter of fellow Acadians Mathurin Bourg and Léocade LeBlanc, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1861.  Their son François Ricard was born in Assumption Parish in November 1861, Augustin Hector in July 1866, and Joachim Jules in September 1870.  During the War of 1861-65, Villier, called Villie in wartime records, had, according to one of those records, a dark complexion, black hair, black eyes, and stood five feet, eight inches tall.  He was conscripted into Company C of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery in October 1862 with other Assumption Parish men.  Along with his regiment, Villier served at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  When Grant's army captured the regiment at Vicksburg in July 1863, most of its conscripts, including Villier, refused parole.  The Federals sent him and his fellow gunners to Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis, Missouri, before transferring them to the prisoner-of-war compound at Camp Morton, Indiana.  Perhaps to shorten his stay in the POW camp, Villier, with other prisoners from his unit, took the oath of allegiance to the United States government in early January 1865--months before the war ended.  The Federals released them after they took the oath, and they made their way home as best they could. 

During the War of 1861-65, François may have served in Company C of the 26th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Assumption Parish, which fought at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  François married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Evariste Foret and Cléonise Barrilleaux, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in October 1865.  their son Joseph Albert was born in Assumption Parish in September 1866. 

Ernest married Aurelie or Aurelia, daughter of fellow Acadian August LeBlanc and his Creole wife Adeline Peltier, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in December 1865.  Their son Aubert Auguste was born in Assumption Parish in September 1866. 

4b

François Hermogène died in Lafourche Interior Parish in July 1840.  He was only 19 years old and probably did not marry.  

4c

Achille Sylvanie married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Thibodeaux and Élisabeth Landry, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in October 1848.  Their son Antoine Oscar was born in Assumption Parish in April 1852, and Théogène Mirtil, a twin, in May 1863. 

4d

Pierre Marcellus married Marie Eléonore, called Eléonore, Léonore, and Leonna, daughter of fellow Acadian Mathurin Bourg, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in October 1849.  Their son Joseph Justilien was born in Assumption Parish in April 1851, François Sirius in October 1853, Edgar Augustin in April 1859, Onésiphore Noé in May 1861, and Joseph in February 1870.

5

A second Jean-Baptiste III, called J. B., born at Assumption in March 1796, married cousin Anne Marie or Marie Anne, daughter of fellow Acadians François Joseph Boudreaux and Marie Thibodeaux, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1818.  Their son Jean Baptiste Rosémond, called Rosémond, was born in Assumption Parish in December 1818, Victor Proile in Lafourche Interior Parish in April 1825, Zéphirin Neuville, called Arville or Orville, in May 1828, François Gédéon in June 1831, and Auguste Ferdinand in March 1835.  Their daughters married into the Calahan, Guillot, and Prejean families.

5a

Jean Baptiste Rosémond married cousin Amelie Victoire or Victoire Émilie, daughter of fellow Acadians Louis Hébert and Amelie Boudreaux of Terrebonne Parish, in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in April 1846, and, called Rosémond Jean Baptiste by the recording priest, sanctified the marriage at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, the following August.  Their son Rosémond, fils was born near Bayou Black, Terrebonne Parish, in March 1849, Orvil Faustin in May 1851, Ernest near Chacahoula in May 1860, Octave Elisie in April 1863 but died at age 5 1/2 in September 1868, and Myrtile Arestile was born near Montegut in November 1868.  They also had a son named Louis Neuville, called Neuville, born probably in Terrebonne Parish in the late 1840s.  In November 1850, the federal census taker in Terrebonne Parish counted 4 slaves--all males, all mulattoes except 1 black, ages 24 years to 6 months--on Jean Bt. Boudreau's farm; one wonders if this was Jean Baptiste Rosémond.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Terrebonne Parish counted 7 slaves--3 males and 4 females, all mulattoes except for one black, ranging in age from 50 to 4, living in a single house--on J. B. Boudreau's farm in the parish's 11th Ward; one wonders if this also was Jean Baptiste Rosémond. 

Louis Neuville married Marie Elvina, daughter of William Evariste Price and Eulalie Maillet, at the Montegut church, Terrebonne Parish, in January 1867.  Their son Joseph Faustin was born near Montegut in March 1870. 

5b

Arville married Odile, daughter of Jean Lagrange and his Acadian wife Marie Hébert, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in April 1853; Odile's mother was an Hébert.  Their daughter married into the Fremin family.  Did Arville father any sons? 

5c

During the War of 1861-65, François may have served in Company C of the 26th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Assumption Parish, which fought at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  François married double cousin Elfrida, called Frida, daughter of Valsin Boudreaux and his Creole wife Delphine Lagrange, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1866.  Their son Émile Valsin was born in Assumption Parish in November 1866. 

5d

Auguste married Adolphine, daughter of fellow Acadians Basile Talbot and his first wife Marie Joséphine Henry, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1866.

6

Youngest son François-Gilbert, a twin, born at Assumption in February 1798, died the following September.  

Descendants of Joseph-Marie BOUDREAUX (1766-?; Michel, Claude, Jean dit Lami)

Joseph-Marie, second son of Jean-Baptiste Boudrot and Anastasie Célestin dit Bellemère, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in March 1766, came to Louisiana in 1785 aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, with his mother, stepfather Honoré Comeau, and younger brother Charles.  They settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, where Joseph-Marie married Anne-Isabelle, daughter of probably Joachim-Hyacinthe Trahan and his second wife Marie-Madeleine Duhon, in February 1786.  Anne was a native of Morlaix, France, and also had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi.  According to Lafourche-valley censuses, between 1787 and 1795, she gave him at least two daughters and a son on the upper bayou. 

Angèl, born probably at Assumption in c1794, may have died young, taking this line of the family with him.  

Charles BOUDREAUX (1769-?; Michel, Claude, Jean dit Lami)

Charles, third and youngest son of Jean-Baptiste Boudrot and Anastasie Célestin dit Bellemère, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in January 1769, came to Louisiana in 1785 aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, with his mother, stepfather Honoré Comeau, and older brother Joseph-Marie.  They settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, where Charles was counted in 1788 and 1791 with his once-again widowed mother and brother Joseph.  Evidently he never married. 

Descendants of Charles BOUDREAUX (1764-1833; Michel, Charles, Jean-Baptiste)

Charles, second son of Zacharie Boudrot of Pigiguit and his first wife Marguerite Daigre, born at Trigavou, France, near St.-Malo, in March 1764, married Marie-Anne, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Gautrot and his second wife Anne Pitre, probably at St.-Nicolas, Nantes, in c1784.  Charles, his wife and their infant son sailed to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and went to upper Bayou Lafourche, where his father and stepmother also settled.  Charles died in Lafourche Interior Parish in May 1833; he was 69 years old.  He fathered only the one son, born in France, but the son married twice and created a large family of his own. 

Charles-Marie, born at Nantes, France, in March 1785, married Victoire Claire, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Aucoin and Isabelle Henry, at Assumption in June 1805.  Victoire Claire was a native of Chantenay, France, near Nantes, and had come to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships.  Their son Valéry Charles was born at Assumption in April 1806, and Rosémond in December 1809.  Their daughter married into the Percle family.  Charles Marie remarried to Rosalie Dorothée, daughter of François Aysenne and Maria Theresa Smith of St. Charles Parish, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1815.  Their son François Alexis or Laisin was born in Assumption Parish in February 1817, Gervais Valsin or Ursin, called Valsin, in June 1818, Louis in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1820, and Maurice in June 1828 but died at age 3 in August 1831.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin and Gros families.  Charles Marie died in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1835; he was only 50 years old.  Four of his sons created families of their own and settled in Lafourche Interior and Assumption parishes, but only two of the lines survived. 

Rosémond, by his father's first wife, married Marie Carmelite, called Carmelite and Melite, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Vincent Landry and Marie Madeleine Bourg, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in May 1832.  Their son Trasimond Désiré was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1840 but died at age 8 1/2 in May 1849.  Their daughters married into the Bouvet, Breaux, Himel, and Prejean families.  Rosémond died in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1850; he was only 40 years old; his succession record was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse the following May.  His line of the family, except for its blood, died with him. 

Valéry, by his father's first wife, married cousin Théotiste, daughter of fellow Acadians Hyacinthe Laurent Aucoin and Marie Céleste Delaune, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in June 1832.  Their son Valéry Désiré, called Désiré, was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in July 1833.  Valéry died in Assumption Parish in June 1860; he was 54 years old. 

Désiré died in Lafourche Interior Parish in June 1851.  He was only 18 years old and probably did not marry.  His family line probably died with him. 

François Laisin, by his father's second wife, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in September 1835.  He was only 19 years old and probably did not marry.  

Valsin, by his father's second wife, married Dauphine or Delphine, daughter of Jean Lagrange and his Acadian wife Marie Hébert, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in November 1838.  Their son Séraphin Léonis was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in September 1839, Sylvère Ernest, called Ernest, in April 1844, Auguste in August 1846, Camille in Assumption Parish in June 1849, Julies Xavier in January 1852, and Joseph Auguste perhaps posthumously in August 1861.  Their daughter married a Boudreaux cousin.  Valsin may have died in Assumption Parish in December 1860; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Valsin died at "age 40 years."  At least two of his sons married before 1870. 

Auguste married cousin Eveline, daughter of Rosémond Lagrange and his Acadian wife Léocade Aucoin, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1868; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.

2c

Urbain, by his father's second wife, married Delvina or Elvina, daughter of French Creole Jean Lagrange, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in April 1853; Delvina's mother was an Hébert.  One wonders if this line survived.

4

Youngest son Zacharie Hyacinthe, born at Assumption in May 1804, married Marguerite Carmelite, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Landry and Marie Madeleine Bourg, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in August 1829.  One wonders if they had any children. 

Descendants of Joseph-Simon BOUDREAUX (1764-?; Michel, Charles, François)

Joseph-Simon, only son of Félix Boudrot and his first wife Marie-Josèphe LeBlanc of Minas, born at Morlaix, France, in June 1764, followed his family to Belle-Île-en-Mer and became a sailor.  In the 1780s, he married Marie-Julienne, called Julienne, daughter of French locals Pierre Brossier and Jeanne Delinot, and took her to Louisiana aboard La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They followed his father, stepmother, and older married sister, who had crossed on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, to upper Bayou Lafourche.  They also spent some time in New Orleans, where several of their children were baptized in the late 1790s and early 1800s.  Their daughters married into the Adolphe, Bret, Foret, Hébert, Labadie, and Landry families.  Two of Joseph-Simon's four sons created families of their own in Assumption Parish, where their sons also settled.

Boudreaux's farm in the parish's Bayou Boeuf Ward 14.  By early 1862, Basile had moved all the way down to near Brashear, now Morgan, City, St. Mary Parish, on the lower Atchafalaya River.  At age 50, Basile remarried to Célesie, daughter of fellow Acadians François Chiasson and Clarisse Comeaux, at the Thibodeaux church, Lafourche Parish, in June 1869.  One of his sons by his first wife settled at Brashear City. 

Joseph Olésime, by his father's first wife, married Julia, daughter of fellow Acadians Zenon Bourgeois and Louise Helina Gaudet, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in January 1867.  Their son Désiré Marc was born near Brashear, now Morgan, City, on the lower Atchafalaya River, April 1870. 

3

Joseph-Alexandre, born probably at Assumption in March 1798, was baptized at New Orleans the following July perhaps because he was in danger of dying.  

4

Youngest son Hippolyte Alphonse, born in Assumption Parish in April 1810, also may have died young. 

Descendants of Joseph-Marie BOUDREAUX (1765-1790s; Michel, Charles, François)

Joseph-Marie, son of Jean-Charles Boudrot of Pigiguit and his first wife Agnès Trahan, born at Port St.-Hubert, France, near St.-Malo, in May 1765, came to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, with his father, stepmother, and four siblings.  He followed them and the majority of the passengers from their ship to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Joseph-Marie married Marie-Isabelle, daughter of fellow Acadians Étienne Darois and Madeleine Trahan, in May 1791.  Marie-Isabelle was a native of Chantenay, France, near Nantes, and came to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi.  Their daughter married into the Benoit family.  Joseph-Marie died in the early 1790s, in his late 20s; Spanish officials counted his wife at Assumption in December 1795 without him. 

Joseph-Marie, fils, born at Lafourche in May 1792, may have died young, taking this line of the family with him.  

Descendants of Pierre-David BOUDREAUX (1783-1844; Michel, Charles, François)

Pierre-David, son Jean-Charles Boudrot of Pigiguit and his second wife Marguerite-Victoire Guédry, born at St.-Similien, Nantes, France, in April 1783, came to Louisiana in 1785 aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, with his parents and four siblings, including older half-brother Joseph-Marie.  He followed his family to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian François Duhon and Isabelle Landry and widow of Paul Dugas, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in April 1808.  Marie was a native of Louisiana.  Their daughter married into the Daigle family.  Pierre died in Assumption Parish in October 1844; the priest who recorded his burial said that Pierre died at "age 65 yrs.," but he was "only" 61.  His two sons created families of their own, but only one of their lines seems to have survived, in Assumption Parish. 

1

Older son Pierre Rosémond, called Rosémond, born in Assumption Parish in March 1810, married Marie Céline or Adeline, daughter of Antoine Barras and his Acadian wife Rosalie Bourg, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1835.  Their son Pierre Rosémond, fils was baptized at the Plattenville church, age unrecorded, in January 1838, Drosin Eulice was born in April 1844, and Amédée Octave in March 1846. 

Amédée married cousin Adeline, daughter of Joannis, probably Jean, Fremin and his Acadian wife Zéolide Boudreaux, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1870. 

2

Younger son André Onésime, born in Assumption Parish in September 1812, married fellow Acadian Pamela Foret probably in Assumption Parish by the early 1840s.  Their son Désiré died in Assumption Parish, age 10 months, in August 1844.  Their daughter married into the Comeaux and Gaspard families.  This line of the family, except for its blood, may not have survived. 

Descendants of Félix-Marie BOUDREAUX (1785-1827; Michel, Charles, François)

Félix-Marie, younger son of Jean-Charles Boudrot of Pigiguit and his second wife Marguerite-Victoire Guédry, born at St.-Similien, Nantes, France, in June 1785, came to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, with his parents and four siblings, including older half-brother Joseph Marie.  Félix followed his family to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Philippe Henry and Marie Josèphe Thibodeaux, at Assumption in February 1805.  Rosalie was a native of Louisiana, but her family also had sailed from France aboard Le St.-Rémi.  Félix Marie died in Lafourche Interior Parish in August 1827; he was only 42 years old.  His three sons created families of their own in Lafourche Interior and Assumption parishes.

1a

During the War of 1861-65, Emérant served in Company D of the 18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Terrebonne Parish, which fought in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana.  He enlisted in the company at Camp Pratt, near New Iberia, Louisiana, probably as a conscript, in September 1862; he was 25 years old.  His service in the company was not sterling; he was lucky to have survived it.  In the late winter of 1863, he was "under sentence of a general court martial for desertion."  He returned to his unit in March, but in July he deserted again, this time at Bayou Boeuf, not far from his home (his younger brother Olésiphore had deserted from Company G of the 18th Infantry two days before).  Emérant may not have returned to his unit ... again.  He married Meotile or Meotilde, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Hébert and his Creole wife Arthémise Exnicios, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in December 1865.  Their son Abel Numa was born near Labadieville in July 1869. 

1b

During the War of 1861-65, Olésiphore served in Company G of the 18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Lafourche Parish, which fought in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana, but he did not serve honorably; he deserted his company in July 1863 when it was operating near his home (his older brother Emérant deserted from Company D of the 18th Infantry two days later).  He may not have returned to his unit.  Olésiphore married Amelia, called Melia, daughter of Valéry Oncale and Azélie Tregle, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in October 1868.

1c

François Joseph, fils married cousin Angelina, daughter of fellow Acadians Ursin Hébert and Marie Boudreaux, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1870.

Joseph Noël, also called Zenon, born in Assumption Parish in December 1807, married Rosalie Anne, daughter of fellow Acadians Hyacinthe Aucoin and Marie Céleste Delaune, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in June 1826.  Their son Neuville Benjamin was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in April 1827, and Joseph Augustin died at age 2 months in March 1834.  Their daughters married into the Vaise family.  Joseph Noël remarried to Aimée Caroline, called Caroline, daughter of Jean Olivier and Dorothée Lagrange of St. John the Baptist Parish, at the Thibodaux church in October 1836.  Their son Clairville or Treville Amédée was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1842, and Jules Davis in March 1845.  Their daughters married into the Bergeron, Daigle, Hébert, Junot, and Richard (French Creole, not Acadian) families.  Joseph Noël remarried again--his third marriage--to Céleste, daughter of French Creole Dominique Bergeron and his Acadian wife Henriette Breaux and widow of Ursin Falteman, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in October 1850.  Their son Joseph Estephen was born near Labadieville in August 1851.  At age 59, Joseph Noël remarried yet again--his fourth marriage--to cousin Eulalie, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Boudreaux and Mélanie Gautreaux and widow of Lasty Falteman, at the Plattenville church in February 1867.  One of his sons settled on the western prairies, but the others remained in the Lafourche/Terrebonne valley. 

2a

Neuville Benjamin, by his father's first wife, married Adeline, daughter of Augustin Lagrange and Rosalie Mayet, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1848.  Their son Émile Augustave was born in Assumption Parish in December 1848, Octave in September 1850, Anatole Jules or Jules Anatole in May 1856 but died the following August, Théophile Léonard was born in June 1857, Joseph Dorville in February 1862, Clairville Aubert in August 1864, and Numa Cyprien in January 1867.  In August 1860, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted a single slave--a 40-year-old mulatto male--on Neuville Boudreaux's farm in the parish's Sixth Ward on Bayou Lafourche; one wonders if this was Neuville Benjamin. 

Émile Augustave may have married cousin Emma Boudreaux in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in June 1866.  They settled in Assumption Parish. 

2b

Treville, by his father's second wife, married Émée, daughter of fellow Acadian Hermogène Roger and his Creole wife Pauline Adam, at the Houma church, Terrebonne Parish, in February 1864, and may have remarried to Marianne Marcel in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in April 1869.

2c

Jules Davis, by his father's second wife, married Odilia or Odelia, daughter of fellow Acadians Basile Talbot and his second wife Marie Blanchard, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1869.  Their son Numa was born in Lafayette Parish in November 1869.

3

Youngest son Pierre Benjamin, born in Assumption Parish in May 1812, married Adèle, daughter of Jean Baptiste Fremin and his Acadian wife Marie Françoise Aucoin, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in April 1839.  Their son Lusignon Hermogène was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1840, Jules Félix in July 1842, and Oscar Aimé in Assumption Parish in February 1850.  Their daughter married a Boudreaux cousin. 

During the War of 1861-65, Lusignon served probably as a conscript in Company G of the 18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Lafourche Parish, which fought in Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and Louisiana.  Lusignon joined the company in October 1862 at Camp Pratt near New Iberia and deserted a month later.  He rejoined the company in February 1863, in time to resist a federal invasion of the Bayou Teche region that spring.  Later that summer, after the regiment had retreated to the Red River valley and then returned to the Lafourche area, Lusignon was "left behind sick" and disappears from the Confederate record.  One wonders if he survived the war. 

Descendants of Joseph-Marie BOUDREAUX (1765-?; Michel, Claude, Étienne)

Joseph-Marie, eldest son of Étienne Boudrot, fils of Minas and Marguerite Thibodeau, was born at Mordreaux, France, near St.-Malo, in September 1765.  He sailed to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, with his parents and six siblings.  Soon after the family reached the colony, Joseph-Marie married Marie-Charlotte, daughter of fellow Acadians Claude Pitre and Marie Richard, at New Orleans in January 1786.  Marie was a native of Pleudihen, near St.-Malo, and had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships.  They followed his father and brothers to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Marie died at Lafourche, age 17, in November 1786 probably from complications of childbirth.  In October 1787, Joseph-Marie remarried to Marguerite-Ludivine, daughter of fellow Acadians Anselme Pitre and his first wife Isabelle Dugas, at Lafourche.  Marguerite was a native of Pleurtuit, near St.-Malo, and had crossed to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  They settled on Bayou Darbonne, and she gave him many children.  Their daughters married into the Dupré, Henry, and LeBlanc families.  Five of Joseph-Marie's six sons created families of their own and settled in Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes, but two of the lines may not have survived.

2a

Jean Apollinaire married cousin Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Simon LeBlanc and Marie Élisabeth Boudreaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in May 1847; the marriage also was recorded in Terrebonne Parish.  Their son Alfred died in Lafourche Interior Parish, age 17 months, in June 1853.  Jean died in Lafourche Parish in May 1853; he was only 28 years old.  His line of the family died with him and his only son. 

2b

Joseph Florentin may have married Marie Eveline Exnicios in the early 1850s.  Their son Robert was born in Assumption Parish in May 1852, and Henri Davis in Terrebonne Parish in November 1863. 

3

Simon-Valentin, by his father's second wife, born at Assumption in September 1797, may have died young.

5

Renaud Toussaint, by his father's second wife, born at Assumption in October 1802, married Anne Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Baptiste Théodore Henry and Anne Naquin, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1824.  They settled in Terrebonne Parish.  One wonders if this line survived.

Descendants of Blaise-Julien BOUDREAUX (1769-c1816; Michel, Claude, Étienne)

Blaise-Julien or Julien-Blaise, second son of Étienne Boudrot, fils and Marguerite Thibodeau, born at Pleudihen, France, near St.-Malo, in January 1769, came to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, with his parents and six siblings and followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Perrine, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean-Baptiste Barrilleaux and Marie Daigre, in February 1792.  Pérrine also was a native of Pleudihen and had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships.  Their daughters married into the Bourgeois, Bouvet, Foret, Hébert, Landry, and Toups families.  Blaise-Julien's succession inventory record was filed in the Thibodauxville courthouse, Lafourche Interior Parish, in March 1816; he would have been 47 years old that year.  All three of his sons created families of their own and settled in Assumption and Lafourche Interior parishes. 

1

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste dit Blaise, born at Assumption in October 1798, married Constance Ludivine, daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre Naquin and Anne Robichaux, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1820.  Their son Arsène Blaise or Blaise Arsène was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in September 1821, Francois Léon, called F.

1a

Arsène married Marie Ursanie, called Ursanie, daughter of fellow Acadian Ursin Prejean and his Creole wife Urasie Levert, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in October 1848.  Their son François Clovis was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in December 1851.

1c

Jean Baptiste Eugène married Euphémie Célesie, daughter of Jean Baptiste Borne and his Acadian wife Célesie Henry, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in March 1851.  Their son Jean Baptiste was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in August 1851, and Arsène Noël, also called Noilarson, in December 1853.  Their daughter may have married into the Chinn or Shinn family.  Jean Baptiste Eugène died in Lafourche Parish in September 1854; he was only 24 years old; tutorship for his two sons was granted in April 1860. 

1d

Adolphe married Marie Mathilde, called Mathilde, daughter of Valéry Vicknair and Adèle Vicknair, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in January 1853.  Their son Elphége Hermogène was born in Lafourche Parish in November 1855, Labin or Sabin Vicner in January 1858 but died the following September, Henri Clément was born in November 1859, and Joseph Adolphe Valéry in February 1863.  Their daughter married into the Kerne family.  Adolphe remarried to Émelie, daughter of fellow Acadians Arsène Préjean and Marie Carmelite Carret, at the Thibodaux church in October 1866.  Their son Adolphe Abel was born in Lafourche Parish in August 1867, and Victorin in May 1870.

2a

Vinot Émile, by his father's first wife, married Marie M., daughter of Jean Baptiste Borne and his Acadians wife Célesie Henry, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in January 1853.  One wonders if this line survived. 

2b

Adrien Rosémond, by his father's second wife, married cousin Irma or Zulma, daughter of fellow Acadian Célestin LeBlanc and Armelise Boudreaux, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1856; the priest who recorded the marriage noted that Adrien was "son of Mrs. Célesie Duhon by an act received from Mr. Marel, justice of the peace, dated 18 May 1852"; does this mean that Adrien was not actually a son of François Marie?  Adrien and Zulma's son Émile Adam Ausineau was born in Assumption Parish in March 1861, Michel died in Assumption Parish a day after his birth in April 1862, Augustin Amédée was born in December 1865 but died at age 2 1/2 in August 1868, and Joseph Léonce was born in September 1869.  During the War of 1861-65, Adrien Rosémond may have served in Company B of the 30th Regiment/Battalion Louisiana Infantry, raised in Orleans and St. James parishes, which fought in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee.  Adrien enlisted at Thibodaux in March 1862, but his service with the 30th Infantry was cut short.  That autumn, he spent a few weeks in the hospital at Clinton, Louisiana, before being discharged in December, probably for medical reasons. 

3

Youngest son Basile-Mathurin, born at Assumption in c1803, married Clémence, 20-year-old daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre Marin Dugas and Françoise Arcement, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in April 1825.  Their son Furcy Mathurin was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1827, Hallen Léopold, perhaps called Alence, in January 1837 but may have died at age 12 in June 1849, a son, name unrecorded, died in Assumption Parish at age 3 days in July 1840, and Alfred Basile was born in February 1847 but died at age 1 in May 1848.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Delaune, and Hanlon families.  In September 1850, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted a single slave--a 15-year-old black female--on Bazile Boudreau's farm in the parish's Second Congressional District; this might have been Basile Mathurin.  Only one of his sons survived childhood, but he created a family of his own and settled in Assumption Parish. 

Furcy Mathurin married Azéma, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Charles Blanchard and his Italian Creole wife Anne Désirée Cancienne, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1845.  Their son Siméon Eulice was born in Assumption Parish in January 1846, Justilien Eusylia in September 1849, Oscar Amédée in November 1847, and Octave Désiré in January 1856.

Étienne, fifth son of Antoine Boudrot and Brigitte Apart, born at Trigavou, near St.-Malo, France, in December 1766, came to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, with his widowed mother and siblings.  He followed his mother to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Victoire-Andée or -Andrée, daughter of fellow Acadians Alexandre Gautreaux and Marguerite Hébert, in January 1788.  Victoire was a native of Pleslin, France, also near St.-Malo, and had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  Their daughter married into the Martin and Stephen families.  Étienne's succession inventory was filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse, Lafourche Interior Parish, in March 1819; he would have been 52 years old that year.  He fathered at least 10 sons, nine of whom settled in Lafourche Interior Parish--one of the most vigorous family lines established in South Louisiana.  At least one son and one grandson moved down bayou into Terrebonne Parish.

Étienne-Simon or Simon-Étienne, born at Assumption in May 1801, filed a petition at the Lafourche Interior Parish courthouse in Thibodauxville, when he was 16 years old, asking for his oldest brother Charles to become his curator after their father died.  He may have been the Étienne Boudreaux who married Angélique, daughter of Drosin Toups and Judith Mayer and brother Charles's widow.  Their son Alfred was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in July 1848.  If he was the Simon Boudreaux who died in Lafourche Parish "at age 50 yrs." in November 1858, the Thibodaux priest who recorded his burial underestimated his age by seven years; sadly, the priest did not bother to record Simon's parents' names or even mention a wife.  His son settled on the western prairies.

Alfred married cousin Colastie or Scolastie, daughter of Charles Lessin Baudoin and his Acadian wife Marie Sylvanie Boudreaux, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in September 1869.

During the War of 1861-65, Louis F. may have served in Company G of the 18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Lafourche Parish, which fought in Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and Louisiana, and Company F of the Consolidated 18th Regiment and Yellow Jacket Battalion Infantry, which fought in Louisiana.  For much of his time with these units, Louis F. served as a driver with the regiment's quartermaster.  Louis F. married Mathilde, daughter of Augustin Sanchez and his Acadian wife Marie Adèle Guillot, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in April 1870.

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX (1767-1807; Michel, Charles, Denis)

Jean-Baptiste, called Jean, son of Olivier Boudrot of Minas and his second wife Anne Dugas, born at Trigavou, France, near St.-Malo, in October 1767, came to Louisiana aboard La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships, with his parents and a sister and followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche, where his father died in the late 1780s.  Jean-Baptiste married Françoise-Olive, daughter of fellow Acadians Olivier Pitre and Marie Moyse and widow of Mathurin-Chevalier Frilot, at Assumption in December 1802; Jean-Baptiste was 35 years old at the time of the wedding.  Françoise-Olive also was a native of Trigavou and had come to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships.  Jean "accidentally drowned" in Interior Parish in August 1807; he was only 39 years old; his succession inventory record was filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse in September.  

1

Older son Jean-Alexis, born at Assumption in November 1803, "petitioned for curator" at the Thibodauxville courthouse, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1823, when he was 19 years old, so his mother may have died by then.  Jean Alexis married Cléonise, 18-year-old daughter of fellow Acadians François Regis Part and Constance Bourgeois of St. James Parish, at the Thibodauxville church in November 1829.  Called Alexis by the recording clerk, Jean Alexis remarried to Mary Brown in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Interior Parish in December 1841.  Their son Joseph William was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in August 1843.  Their daughter married into the Collins family.  Jean Alexis's succession record was recorded at the Thibodaux courthouse in May 1866, after his wife had remarried.

Jean Baptiste Rosémond, born in Assumption Parish in December 1818, probably died young. 

Descendants of François-Joseph BOUDREAUX (1771-1825; Michel, Charles, François)

2f

Isidore, by his father's first wife, married Lucretia, called Lucie, daughter of Louis Burns and Marie Romer, at the Attakapas Canal church, Assumption Parish, in April 1861.  Their son Edmond Camille had been born near Attakapas Canal in December 1859, Eusilien Aristide was born in June 1861, and John Kelly near Franklin, St. Mary Parish, in November 1869.  During the War of 1861-65, Isidore, who, according to wartime records, had a light complexion, black hair, blue eyes, and stood five feet, six and a quarter inches tall, was conscripted into Company B of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery in October 1862 with other Assumption Parish men, including first cousin Claiborne Boudreaux.  Isidore, along with his regiment, served at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  (Daughter Marie Victoria was born near Attakapas Canal in late November 1862 while Isidore was serving at Vicksburg.)  When Grant's army captured the regiment at Vicksburg in July 1863, most of its conscripts, including Isidore, refused to accept parole.  The Federals sent him and his fellow gunners to Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis, Missouri, before transferring them to the prisoner-of-war compound at Camp Morton, Indiana.  Perhaps to shorten his stay in the prison camp, Isidore, with other survivors from his unit, took the oath of allegiance to the United States government in early January 1865--months before the war ended.  The Federals released them after they took the oath, and they made their way home as best they could.  Isidore took his family to lower Bayou Teche in the late 1860s. 

3

David-Valentin, born at Assumption in January 1801, married Marguerite, daughter of French Creole Frédéric Riche or Richet and Constance Duchanes of Pointe Coupee Parish, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1821.  Their son Louis Clairville, called Clairville, was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1823, David, fils in September 1827, Alcide in April 1835, Étienne Frédéric in May 1843, and Victorin Irma, called Irma, in February 1846 but died in Assumption Parish at age 3 in March 1849.  They also had a son named Furcy.  Their daughter married into the Benite family.  Three of their sons moved to lower Bayou Teche before and after the War of 1861-65.

5

Constant, born at Assumption in March 1805, married Hélène, 18-year-old daughter of Jean Baptiste Picou his Acadian wife Félicité Arceneaux of St. James Parish, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1830; Hélène's mother was an Arceneaux.  Their daughters married into the Barrios (Spanish Creole, not Acadian), Breaux, and Pastor families.  Constant died in Lafourche Interior Parish in June 1833; he was only 28 years old.  He fathered no sons, at least none who appeared in local church records, so this line of the family, except for its blood, died with him. 

6

Youngest son Zéphirin Surpriano, called Zéphir, born at Ascension in August 1806, married Azélie Louise, 18-year-old daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre Dugas and Françoise Arcement, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1828.  They settled in the Attakapas Canal area of Assumption Parish, east of Lake Verret.  Their son Louis Claiborne, called Claiborne, was born in April 1837.  Their daughters married into the Lauland and Roger families.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted a single slave--a 25-year-old black male--on Zéphirin Boudreaux's farm in the parish's Second Congressional District.  In June 1860, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish again counted a single slave--a 40-year-old black male--on Zéphir Boudreaux's farm near Attakapas Canal. 

Claiborne married Estellina, daughter of fellow Acadians Evariste LeBlanc and Edesie Bourg, at the Attakapas Canal church, Assumption Parish, in February 1862.  Their son Louis Agnès was born near Attakapas Canal in January 1866, and Pierre Agnile in June 1869.  During the War of 1861-65, Claiborne, who, according to wartime records, had a light complexion, brown hair, gray eyes, and stood five feet, seven and a half inches tall, was conscripted into Company B of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery in October 1862 with other Assumption Parish men, including first cousin Isidore Boudreaux.  Claiborne was promoted to corporal and, along with his regiment, served at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  (Daughter Louise Estella was born near Attakapas Canal in January 1863 while Claiborne was serving at Vicksburg.)  When Grant's army captured the regiment at Vicksburg in July 1863, most of its conscripts, including Claiborne, refused to accept parole.  The Federals sent him and his fellow gunners to Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis, Missouri, before transferring them to the prisoner of war compound at Camp Morton, Indiana.  Perhaps to shorten his stay in the POW camp, Claiborne, with other survivors from his unit, took the oath of allegiance to the United States government in early January 1865--months before the war ended.  The Federals released them after they took the oath, and they made their way home as best they could.

In the 1790s, Boudreauxs from France who had gone to river settlements moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, adding substantially to the center of family settlement:

Anne Jeanne Boudreaux, widow of Jean Marie Navarre, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in April 1850; the priest who recorded her burial said that she died "at age 68 yrs.," but she was "only" 65. 

Marguerite Marie Boudreaux, widow of Gabriel Guillaume Aucoin and Joseph Marcellin Dubois and wife of Hyacinthe Laurent Aucoin, died in Assumption Parish in April 1855, age 72. 

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX (c1753-1832; Michel, Charles, François)

Jean-Baptiste, son of Alexandre Boudrot of Minas and Marie-Madeleine Vincent, was born probably at Minas in c1753.  In the fall of 1755, when he was only 2 years old, British forces deported his family to Virginia and then sent them on to England in 1756.  His father died at Bristol, England, in August 1756, not long after his family got there.  His mother remarried to fellow Acadian Joseph Breau, with whom she had another son, Joseph Breau, fils, in 1761.  In May 1763, when Jean-Baptiste was 10 years old, he, his mother, once again a widow, and his stepbrother, only 2 years old, were repatriated to France aboard La Dorothée and settled at St.-Suliac, near St.-Malo.  Jean-Baptiste became a sailor and married Marie-Modeste, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Trahan and Anne Thériot, at Châtellerault, Poitou, in October 1774.  After the failure of the Poitou settlement, he and his wife retreated to Nantes in late 1775 with other disgruntled Acadians.  In 1785, they sailed to Louisiana with four of their children aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships from France, and followed the majority of the passengers from their ship to Manchac, at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District, where Marie-Modeste died later that year.  Jean-Baptiste remarried to Anne-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre Henry and his first wife Marie-Madeleine Pitre of L'Assomption, Pigiguit, and widow of Théodore Thériot, at Baton Rouge in February 1786.  Anne-Josèphe also had been born in British Nova Scotia but had been deported to France from Île St.-Jean, not from England.  She had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships.  Spanish authorities counted Jean-Baptiste's family at Baton Rouge in the summer of 1788 and again in November 1792.  By January 1798, however, they had moved to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Jean Baptiste's daughters, all by his first wife, married into the Aucoin, Dubois, and Henry families.  Jean-Baptiste died in Lafourche Interior Parish in June or July 1832; he was 79 years old.  Both of his sons also came from his first wife; only one of them married and had a son of his own before dying young; the grandson survived, however, and perpetuated the family line in Assumption, Lafourche Interior, and Terrebonne parishes.

Younger son Jean-Constant, called Constant, born at Nantes, France, in November 1778, married Ursule, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Henry and Marie Bernard, at Assumption in April 1800.  Ursule also was a native of France and had come to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships.  Their son Evariste-Joseph was born at Assumption in August 1801.  Their daughter married into the Lagneaux and Lauzet or Losefeille families.  Jean Constant died by January 1813, when his wife remarried in Assumption Parish. 

Evariste Joseph married Hortense Carmelite, daughter of fellow Acadians Mathurin Hébert and Marie Bourg, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in March 1824.  Their son Ulysse Jean was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1825, Neville Evariste in Assumption Parish in September 1826 but died at age 3 1/2 in March 1830, Jean Joseph was born in December 1830, Trasimond R. in January 1838, and Osémé Evariste in March 1845.  Two of his sons moved to lower Bayou Teche after the War of 1861-65.

Joseph BOUDREAUX (c1758-?; Michel, Charles, Antoine)

Joseph, son of Victor Boudrot of Île St.-Jean and his first wife Catherine-Josèphe Hébert, born probably on Île St.-Jean in c1758, was deported with his family to St.-Malo, France, aboard the British ship Supply in 1758-1759.  He lived with them at St.-Suliac, near St.-Malo, and at nearby St.-Servan and followed them to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the fifth of the Seven Ships.  He was still a bachelor, in his late 20s, when he made the crossing in 1785.  He settled with his family at Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, before following them to upper Bayou Lafourche.  He was counted with an older sister and a brother-in-law on upper Bayou Lafourche in April 1797; the census taker said that Joseph was 32 years old, but he was closer to 39 and still unmarried.  There is no evidence that he ever married.   

Descendants of Noël-Victor BOUDREAUX (1776-1842; Michel, Charles, Antoine)

Noël-Victor, son of Victor Boudrot of Île St.-Jean and his second wife Geneviève Richard and Joseph's younger half-brother, was born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in December 1776.  Noël-Victor came to Louisiana in 1785 aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, with his parents, siblings, and a brother-in-law.  His family followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Bayou de Écores, a new Acadian community north of Baton Rouge, where his father died probably in the late 1780s or early 1790s.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, the family moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Spanish officials counted Noël-Victor with his older half-brother Jean-Baptiste in late 1795.  Noël-Victor married cousin Rose or Rosalie, called Rosie, daughter of fellow Acadians Paul LeBlanc and Anne Boudreaux, at Assumption in February 1803.  Rose was a native of Chantenay, near Nantes, France, and had come to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Bourg, Fite, Guillot, Hébert, Morvant, Naquin, and Rodrigue families.  Noël Victor died in Lafourche Interior Parish in March 1842; he was 65 years old and a widower.  Both of his sons also married cousins whose mothers were Boudreauxs and settled in Lafourche Interior and Assumption parishes.  Only one of the lines survived.

Older son Joseph, born in Assumption Parish in March 1813, married cousin Marie Rosalie, 17-year-old daughter of fellow Acadians Louis Jean Baptiste Hébert and Émilie Cécile Boudreaux, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1837.  Their son Louis François was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1838, Dorville Joseph in September 1839 but died at age 2 in August 1841, Jules Avis was born in October 1850, Félix Aristide, called Aristide, in Assumption Parish in March 1856 but died at age 2 1/2 in November 1858, twins Clet Ave and Octave were born in Lafourche Parish in January 1861, and Antoine Edgard was born in Assumption Parish in January 1864.  Their daughter married into the Clement family.  Two of Joseph's sons settled in Lafourche Parish. 

1a

During the War of 1861-65, Louis François, called Louis F. in Confederate records, may have served in Company G of the 18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Lafourche Parish, which fought in Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and Louisiana, and Company F of the Consolidated 18th Regiment and Yellow Jacket Battalion Infantry, which fought in Louisiana.  For much of his time with these units, Louis François served as a driver with the regiment's quartermaster.  Louis François married Adolphine, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Vincent Hébert and Tarzile Clément, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in November 1865.  Their son Joseph Adolphe, called Adolphe, was born in Lafourche Parish in August 1868 but died at age 2 in October 1870.

Descendants of Paul-Dominique BOUDREAUX (1761-1832; Michel, Charles, Jean-Baptiste)

Paul-Dominique, called Dominique, eldest surviving son of Zacharie Boudrot of Pigiguit and his first wife Marguerite Daigre, born at Trigavou, France, near St.-Malo, in September 1761, married Marie-Olive, daughter of fellow Acadians Anselme Landry and Agathe Barrieau, at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, near Nantes, in May 1783.  He and his wife and their infant son sailed to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785; another son was born to them soon after they reached the colony.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.  Spanish authorities counted them near Fort Bute, north of Bayou Manchac, in the summer of 1788, but by December 1795 they had moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, where his parents and brothers had settled.  Paul-Dominique and Marie-Olivie had many more children in Louisiana, including eight more sons.  Their daughter married into the Gautreaux family.  Paul-Dominique died in Lafourche Interior Parish in December 1832; he was 71 years old.  Most of his nine sons and many grandsons created families of their own and settled in Ascension, Assumption, Lafourche Interior, and Terrebonne parishes--one of the most vigorous lines of the family.  Many of Dominique's grandsons and great-grandsons served Louisiana during the War of 1861-65, and at least two of them died in Confederate service. 

1

Oldest son Paul-Marie, born at Chantenay, France, in May 1784, was 13 years old when Spanish officials counted him with his family at Valenzuéla on upper Bayou Lafourche in April 1797, but he may not have married.

Joseph-Marie, born at Manchac in January 1786, married Anne Josèphe, called Nanette, daughter of fellow Acadians Athanase Dugas and Rose LeBlanc and widow of Louis Foret, at Ascension in August 1806.  Their son Joseph, fils was born in Assumption Parish in April 1807, and Charles Jérôme, called Jérôme, in July 1809.  They also had sons named Leufroi and Charles Maxille, called C. Maxille and Maxille.  Their daughters married into the Babin and Landry families.  Joseph Marie may have died in Ascension Parish in December 1852; if so, he would have been 66 years old.  One of his sons returned to the river, but most of them remained on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

2a

Joseph, fils married cousin Élise Rose, daughter of fellow Acadian Louis Ambroise Dugas and his Creole wife Élisabeth Berthelot, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in October 1829.  Their son Joseph III was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in May 1834, Sylvère Séraphin, called Séraphin, in January 1843 but died at age 2 1/2 in August 1845, Adam Léon, called Léonie, was born in April 1845, and Alfred Sylvanie in November 1847.  They also had an older son named Deservain, unless he was Joseph III.  Their daughters married into the Dubois, Gautreaux, Richard (French Creole, not Acadian), and Thibodeaux families.  Joseph, fils may have died near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in March 1858; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age 50 years." 

Deservain married Victorine or Victoria, daughter of fellow Acadian Apollinaire Thibodeaux and his Creole wife Émilia Olivier, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in August 1860.  During the War of 1861-65, Deservain was conscripted into Company C of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery in October 1862 with other Assumption Parish men, who were sent promptly to the trenches at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  However, Deservain did not live long enough to fight in the great siege there; he died at Jackson, Mississippi, in March 1863, probably of disease, one of the many Assumption conscripts to perish in the war.  His family line probably died with him. 

Léonie married Evela, perhaps Marie Émelie, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Baptiste Bernard Landry and Baselisse Blanchard, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in early May 1869.  Their son Jean Baptiste Alex was born near Labadieville in late May 1869. 

2b

During the War of 1861-65, Clovis served in Company F of the 26th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Terrebonne Parish, which fought at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  Clovis married Odilia, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Napoléon LeBlanc and his Creole wife Marie Pontiff, at the Chacahoula church, Terrebonne Parish, in December 1864, while he was still a Confederate soldier. In 1866, he and his family were living near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, on the southwestern prairies, but were living in Lafourche Parish a few years later.

Désiré married Luvinia, daughter of fellow Acadian Antoine Hébert and Creole wife Véronique LeBoeuf, at the Chacahoula church, Terrebonne Parish, in November 1865.  Their son Amédée Ernest was born near Chacahoula in August 1868.

5

Florentin-Janvier, born at Assumption in January 1795, married Marie-Anne, daughter of André Deroche, Duroche, or Durocher, also called Castillian or Castillon and his Acadian wife Marguerite Trahan, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1815.  Their son Jean Baptiste was born in Assumption Parish in April 1818, Joseph Florentin in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1828, Joachim in March 1830, Paul or Léopold Franklin in January 1833, Norbert in December 1835, and Michel Aglae in May 1838.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin, Babin, Darce, Exnicios, Fremin, Landry, LeBlanc, and Lirette families.  In his mid-50s, Florentin remarried to Clarisse, daughter of André Tregle and Marie Tregle and widow of François Deslattes, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in April 1849.  Five of his six sons settled in Terrebonne Parish. 

5a

Jean Baptiste, by his father's first wife, married Marie Mélisaire, called Mélisaire, daughter of Philippe Darce and Emilina Dupré, in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in February 1844, and sanctified the marriage at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in June 1846.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Terrebonne Parish counted 7 slaves--3 males and 4 females, all mulattoes except for one black, ranging in age from 50 to 4, living in a single house--on J. B. Boudreau's farm in the parish's 11th Ward; one wonders if this was Jean Baptiste.  Did Jean Baptiste father any sons?

5b

Joachim, by his father's first wife, married Odile Cézaire, 21-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Michel Daigle and his Creole wife Marie Carmelite Lirette, in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in March 1852.  Their son Ledoix François was born in Lafourche Parish in January 1853.  By late 1861, they were living in Terrebonne Parish. 

5c

Joseph Florentin, by his father's first wife, may have married Marie Eveline Exnicios in the early 1850s.  Their son Robert was born in Assumption Parish in May 1852, and Henri Davis in Terrebonne Parish in November 1863. 

5d

Norbert, by his father's first wife, married Azéline, daughter of Henri Lirette and Marie Domingue of Terrebonne Parish, at the Houma church, Terrebonne Parish, in February 1860.  Their son Mathias Henri was born in Terrebonne Parish in September 1862, Ernest Florentin, called Florentin, in May 1864 but died at age 1 in August 1865, and Henry Jean Baptiste was born in May 1866.

6a

Jean Pierre Zacharie married Constance, daughter of fellow Acadians Simon LeBlanc and Julienne Hébert, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in May 1843.  Their son Joachim O. was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1846, Théodule Oleus in Assumption Parish in January 1851, and Evariste Alfred in February 1853.  Their daughter married into the Gros family at Vacherie in St. James Parish.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in Lafourche Parish counted 2 slaves--a 21-year-old black female, and a 16-year-old black male--on Zacherie Boudreau's farm along Bayou Lafourche; one wonders if this was Jean Pierre Zacharie.  He died near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in June 1856; the priest who recorded his burial said that Jean Pierre Zacharie died at "age 37 years," but he was only 35. 

6b

Joachim Rosémond married Élodie, daughter of fellow Acadians Basile Dugas and Clarisse Robichaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in May 1845, and remarried to Zoe, daughter of Jean Baptiste Hymel and Uranie Madere of St. John the Baptist Parish, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1856.  Their son Joachim Rosémond, fils was born in Assumption Parish in February 1857, and Émile Albert in December 1866. 

6c

Neuville married Azélie, another daughter of Basile Dugas and Clarisse Robichaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in March 1848.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux and Fremin families.  Did Neuville father any sons?  In August 1860, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted a single slave--a 40-year-old mulatto male--on Neuville Boudreaux's farm in the parish's Sixth Ward on Bayou Lafourche; one wonders if this was him. 

6d

Charles Eusilien married Virginie, daughter of fellow Acadians Euchariste Barrilleaux and Marguerite Mélanie Hébert, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in May 1848.  Their son Jean Baptiste Oscar was born in Assumption Parish in May 1849, and Théodule in December 1852.  Their daughter married into the Richard (French Creole, not Acadian) family.  Charles Eusilien died near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in August 1855; the priest who recorded his burial said that Charles died at "age 28 years," but he was 30.

7a

Valière Florentin married Rosema, daughter of Jean Pierre Juneau or Junot and his Acadian wife his Acadian wife Élise Arcement, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1860.  During the War of 1861-65, Valière, who, according to wartime records, had a dark complexion, black hair, brown eyes, and stood five feet, eight inches tall, may have been conscripted into Company C of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery in October 1862 with other Assumption Parish men, including younger brothers Olésime and Maurice and first cousin Gervais Boudreaux.  Along with his regiment, Valière served at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  When Grant's army captured the regiment at Vicksburg in July 1863, most of its conscripts, including Valière, refused to accept parole.  The Federals sent him and his fellow gunners to Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis, Missouri, before transferring them to the prisoner-of-war camp at Camp Morton, Indiana.  Perhaps to shorten his stay in the dreadful place, Valière, with other survivors from his unit, took the oath of allegiance to the United States government in early January 1865--months before the war ended.  The Federals released them after they took the oath, and they made their way home as best they could.  Valière remarried to cousin Célestine, daughter of fellow Acadians Paul Valentin Boudreaux and , at the Labadieville church in December 1866. 

7b

Maurice married cousin Myrté, daughter of fellow Acadians Joachim Mire and Célesie Gautreaux, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in April 1860; Myrté's mother; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Maurice Delmo was born in Assumption Parish in May 1861.  During the War of 1861-65, Maurice was conscripted into Company C of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery in October 1862 with other Assumption Parish men, including older brothers Valière and Olésime and first cousin Gervais Boudreaux.  Along with his regiment, Maurice served at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  When Grant's army captured the regiment at Vicksburg in July 1863, most of its conscripts, including Maurice, refused to accept parole.  The Federals sent him and his fellow gunners to Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis, Missouri, before transferring them to the prisoner-of-war camp at Camp Morton, Indiana.  Unlike his brother and cousin, however, Maurice did not survive the terrible conditions at Camp Morton.  He died there, probably of disease, in September 1863; he was only 24 years old.

During the War of 1861-65, Marcillien Olésime, called Olésine in Confederate records, may have been conscripted into Company C of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery in October 1862 with other Lafourche/Terrebonne valley men, including brothers Maurice and Valière and first cousin Gervais Boudreaux.  When Grant's army captured the regiment at Vicksburg, Mississippi, in July 1863, most of its conscripts, including Olésime, refused parole.  Military records lose him after the surrender, but the Federals probably sent him, along with many of his fellow gunners, to Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis, Missouri, before transferring them to the prisoner-of-war compound at Camp Morton, Indiana.  Marcillien Olésime married Anastasie, daughter of Victorin Keller and Marie Roussel, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in April 1867.

Anselme, born at Assumption in March 1805, married Marie Modeste, daughter of fellow Acadians Simon Gautreaux and Marie Duhon, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1825.  Their son Pierre Leufroi, called Leufroi, was born in Assumption Parish in November 1826, Charles Anselme in August 1832, Lucien Théodule in October 1833 but died at age 14 months in January 1835, Pierre Dosilia was born in February 1837, Émile Athanase in May 1843, and Oleus Apollinaire in December 1844.  Their daughters married into the Bourg, Davis, Lagrange, and Thibodeaux families.  Anselme remarried to Marie Eve, daughter of François Percle and Marie Louise Triche and widow of Peltier Barthélemi, at the Thibodaux church in August 1849, and remarried again--his third marriage--to Marie, daughter of Jean Lacosse and , at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in April 1856; Anselme was in his early 50s at the time of the wedding.

Leufroi, by his father's first wife, married Adèle, daughter of fellow Acadians Firmin Thibodeaux and Carmelite Robichaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in June 1847.  Their son Émile Trasimond was born in Assumption Parish in October 1852, Laurent in October 1854, Jean Baptiste in November 1858, Jean in March 1860, and Clairville Ovide in November 1862.  Their daughter married into the Hébert family. 

8b

Charles, by his father's first wife, married Séraphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Arcement and his Creole wife Césaire Lagrange, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in June 1855.  Their son Thelesmar Adrien was born near Attakapas Canal, Assumption Parish, in January 1866, and Léo Émile in March 1868.

Youngest son Paul le jeune, born in Assumption Parish in May 1811, married Marie Anne, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Guillaume Gautreaux and Françoise Victoire Aucoin, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1832.  Their son Paul, fils was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in September 1835, Désiré in July 1846, and Arthur Oscar in Assumption Parish in March 1855 but died at age 4 1/2 in August 1859.  They also had a son named Gervais, unless he was Paul, fils.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Hébert, Junot, and Peltier families, one of them in Lafayette Parish on the western prairies. 

9a

Gervais married Odilia, daughter of Jean Baptiste Juneau or Junot, and his Acadian wife his Acadian wife Henriette Hébert, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1859.  He and sister Philomène, in fact, married siblings on the same day, at the same place.  Gervais and Odilia's son Ritus Cleopha, called Cleopha, was born in Assumption Parish in October 1860.  During the War of 1861-65, Gervais, who, according to wartime records, had a light complexion, brown hair, blue eyes, and stood five feet, four inches tall, was conscripted into Company C of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery in October 1862 with other Assumption Parish men, including first cousins Valière, Olésime, and Maurice Boudreaux.  Along with his regiment, Gervais served at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  When Grant's army captured the regiment at Vicksburg in July 1863, most of its conscripts, including Gervais, refused parole.  The Federals sent him and his fellow gunners to Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis, Missouri, before transferring them to the prisoner-of-war camp at Camp Morton, Indiana.  Perhaps to shorten his stay in the POW camp, Gervais, with other survivors from his unit, took the oath of allegiance to the United States government in early January 1865--months before the war ended.  The Federals released them after they took the oath, and they made their way home as best they could.  U.S. records show that Gervais was being held by the provost marshal in Washington, D.C., in July 1865.  The he record calls him one of the "refugees & rebel deserters" to be furnished transportation to Ascension Parish, Louisiana.  After the war, Gervais settled in Assumption Parish before moving to the western prairies.  He and his family were living in Lafayette Parish in the late 1860s.  They moved to the Lydia/Jeanerette area of Iberia Parish on lower Bayou Teche.  Gervais died in Iberia Parish and was buried at St. Peter Catholic Cemetery, New Iberia.

Désiré married Eulalie, daughter of Édouard Lagrange and Melasie Lagrange, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in September 1869.

Descendants of Paul-Marie BOUDREAUX (1771-1846; Michel, Claude, François)

Paul-Marie, son of François Boudrot, fils and his second wife Euphrosine Barrieau, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in October 1771, crossed to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, with his mother, stepfather Charles Broussard, and four half-siblings, and followed them to the Baton Rouge area.  In the early 1790s, he followed his once-again widowed mother to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Élisabeth/Isabelle-Modeste, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Pitre and and Anne Henry, at Assumption in September 1794.  Élisabeth was a native of Pleurtuit, also near St.-Malo, and had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin, Naquin, and Thibodeaux families.  Paul Marie died in Lafourche Interior Parish in September 1846; he was 75 years old and a widower.  Only one of his two sons survived childhood, but he fathered many sons of his own who settled on the upper bayou.

One Boudrot, perhaps the last of the family to reach Louisiana, did not come to the colony until December 1788, aboard a schooner full of Acadians from Île St.-Pierre, a French-owned island off the southern coast of Newfoundland: 

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX (1767-1848; Michel, Charles, Antoine)

Jean-Baptiste, son of Victor Boudrot of Île St.-Jean and his first wife Catherine-Josèphe Hébert, full brother of Joseph and half-brother of Noël-Victor, was born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in December 1767.  In 1785, when he was 18 years old, his father, stepmother, six siblings, including his two brothers, a step-sibling, and a brother-in-law, sailed to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships from France, but Jean-Baptiste was not with them.  He perhaps was a sailor by then and may have been serving aboard a ship half way round the world.  In 1788, three years after his family had emigrated to Louisiana, Jean-Baptiste was at Île St.-Pierre, a French-controlled island off the southern coast of Newfoundland.  He may have been related to Joseph Gravois, a native of Chignecto now living on Île St.-Pierre and owner of a schooner, La Brigite, or to Gravois's wife, Marie-Madeleine Bourg of Grand-Pré, whose mother was an Hébert.  Jean-Baptiste joined Joseph, Marie-Madeleine, the Gravois's eight children, Marine LeBlanc, widow of Joseph Babin, her five children, and another Babin--18 Acadians in all--aboard La Brigite and sailed from Île St.-Pierre all the way down and around to New Orleans, which they reached in December of 1788.  They were among the last Acadian immigrants to reach Louisiana and probably the only ones who went there directly from greater Acadia.  The Gravoiss and Babins settled at Ascension on the river; perhaps Jean-Baptiste went there with them before moving on to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marie-Françoise, called Françoise, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles LeBlanc and Rosalie Trahan, at Assumption in November 1793.  Françoise also was a native of St.-Servan and had come to Louisiana in 1785 aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  Their daughter married into the Hébert family.  Jean-Baptiste remarried to Marie-Rose, daughter of fellow Acadians Grégoire Benoit and Marie-Rose Carret, at Assumption in April 1803.  Marie-Rose was a native of Châtellerault, France, and, like Jean-Baptiste's first wife, also had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi.  Their daughters married into the LeBlanc family.  Jean Baptiste, père died in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1848; the priest who recorded his burial said that Jean Baptiste died "at age 88," but he was "only" 80; his succession inventory, listing all of his surviving children, was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse two weeks after his death.  Three of his five sons by both of his wives created families of their own and settled in Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes.  Some of his grandsons and great-grandsons settled in Assumption and Terrebonne parishes, but most of them remained in Lafourche Interior.  One grandson lived near Brashear, now Morgan, City, on the lower Atchafalaya, during the War of 1861065, and another settled near Lydia, Iberville Parish, on lower Bayou Teche, after the war.

Oldest son Basile-Victor, by his father's first wife, born at Assumption in September 1794, may have died young.

Jean-Baptiste, fils, called Baptiste, from his father's first wife, born at Assumption in June 1796, married cousin Marie Anne Eulalie, called Eulalie, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph LeBlanc and Marie Gautreaux, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in July 1815.  Their son Jean Baptiste III, called Baptiste, was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in July 1822, Charles Neuville, called Neuville, in July 1826, and Joseph Auguste, called Auguste, in April 1831.  Their daughters married into the Gardner, Ordeneaux, and Pontiff families.  In November 1850, the federal census taker in Terrebonne Parish counted 4 slaves--all males, all mulattoes except 1 black, ages 24 years to 6 months--on Jean Bt. Boudreau's farm; this may have been Jean Baptiste, fils.  In July 1860, the federal census taker in Terrebonne Parish counted 7 slaves--3 males and 4 females, all mulattoes except for one black, ranging in age from 50 to 4, living in a single house--on J. B. Boudreau's farm in the parish's 11th Ward; one wonders if this was Jean Baptiste, fils, if not his son Jean Baptiste III.  Jean Baptiste, fils remarried to Hélène, daughter of Spanish Creole François Domingue and Anne Paneke and widow of Victor Silvy, at the Montegut church, Terrebonne Parish, in September 1865; Jean Baptiste, fils was 69 years old at the time of the wedding! 

2a

Jean Baptiste III, by his father's first wife, living in Terrebonne Parish, married cousin Azéma Hirenne, probably Iréné, daughter of Georges Adolphe and his Acadian wife Victoire Catherine Boudreaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in October 1844.  Their son Amédée Alfred Menard, called Alfred, was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in August 1845, Joseph Sturgis in Assumption Parish in February 1853, and Oscar Frédéric near Chacahoula, Terrebonne Parish, in May 1859.  By early 1861, they were living near Brashear, now Morgan, City, on the lower Atchafalaya, and were still there in early 1865.  Jean Baptiste III died in Terrebonne Parish in September 1866; he was only 44 years old; a petition for administration of his estate was filed at the Houma courthouse the day after he died. 

During the War of 1861-65, Alfred, who, according to wartime records, had a dark complexion, black hair, black eyes, and stood five feet, five and a half inches tall, may have been conscripted into Company C of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery, which included many conscripts from the Lafourche/Terrebonne valley who fought at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  When Grant's army captured the regiment at Vicksburg in July 1863, most of its conscripts, including Alfred, refused to accept parole.  The Federals sent him and his fellow gunners to Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis, Missouri, before transferring them to the prisoner of war compound at Camp Morton, Indiana.  Perhaps to shorten his stay in the POW camp, Alfred, with other survivors from his unit, took the oath of allegiance to the United States government in early January 1865--months before the war ended.  The Federals released them after they took the oath, and they made their way home as best they could.  Alfred married Julie, daughter of fellow Acadians Hermogène LeBlanc and Angela Landry, in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in October 1866, and sanctified the marriage at the Chacahoula church, Terrebonne Parish, in March 1867.  Their son Augustin was born near Chacahoula in October 1867, and Edward Augustin in November 1869.

Charles Neuville, by his father's first wife, married Marcellite, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Baptiste Ozelet and Élise Thériot, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1851.  Anatole Jules, who may have been their son, died in Assumption Parish, age 3 months, in August 1856, Justilien Oneville was born near Chacahoula, Terrebonne Parish, in February 1862, and Jules Andressi in May 1868.  In August 1860, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted a single slave--a 40-year-old mulatto male--on Neuville Boudreaux's farm in the parish's Sixth Ward on Bayou Lafourche; one wonders if this was Charles Neuville.

Joseph Auguste, by his father's first wife, married cousin Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Cyprien Hébert and Pauline Boudreaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in January 1861.  They settled in Terrebonne Parish.

Théodore, by his father's first wife, born at Assumption in June 1798, married cousin Marie Blanche, daughter of fellow Acadians Hippolyte LeBlanc and Marguerite Gaudet, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in May 1820, and recorded the marriage in Lafourche Interior Parish in July 1838.  Their son Joseph Hippolyte was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1823 but died at age 6 months the following December, Eugène Evariste was born in January 1825, Léandre in October 1829, Daniel in June 1831, Jean Baptiste le jeune in May 1836, and Cleopha Émile, also called J. Émile and Émile, in September 1838.  Their daughters married into the Hébert, Landry, and Mire families.  One of his sons moved to lower Bayou Teche after the War of 1861-65, but the others remained in Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes.

Eugène Evariste married Pauline, daughter of fellow Acadian Célestin Hébert and his Creole wife Marcelline Baudoin, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1847, sanctified the marriage at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, the following September, and remarried to Céleste, another daughter of Célestin Hébert and Marcelline Baudoin, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in March 1855.  Their son Joseph Léandre was born in Lafourche Parish in November 1856, Sylvain Daniel in November 1858, Jean Arvillien in October 1860, and Eugène Justilien in October 1862.  By 1864, they were living near Chacahoula, Terrebonne Parish. 

3b

Daniel married Marie Marcellite, yet another daughter of Célestin Hébert and Marcelline Baudoin, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in September 1855.  Their son Joseph Melchior was born in Lafourche Parish in December 1859.  Daniel remarried to Adolphine, called Dolphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Zéphirin Hébert and his Creole wife Baselise Gros, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1865; the marriage was record also in Terrebonne Parish, where they settled.  Their son Joseph was born near Chacahoula in February 1866, and Daniel Théodore near New Iberia, on lower Bayou Teche, in February 1870.  They lived on the prairie probably between New Iberia and Lydia, perhaps at present-day Boudreaux.

Léandre married cousin Julie, daughter of Louis A. Lamoureux and his Acadian wife Julie Boudreaux of Lafourche Parish, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in August 1857; Julie's mother was a Boudreaux; the marriage was recorded also in Lafourche Parish.  Their son Théodule Léoni Jules was born in Lafourche Parish in July 1858, twins Joseph Cléophile and Joseph Théophile near Chacahoula, Terrebonne Parish, in January 1862, and Ernest Théodore in Lafourche Parish in August 1869.

Sébastien Célestin, called Bastien, from his father's second wife, born in Ascension Parish in December 1807, died in Lafourche Parish in June or July 1856; the priest who recorded his burial said that Sébastien died "at age 50 yrs.," but he was only 48.  His succession inventory was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse in July.  He probably never married. 

5

Youngest son Firmin, by his father's second wife, born in Assumption Parish in March 1814, married cousin Marie Edmire or Elmire, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Marie Benoit and Marie Élisabeth Darois, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1835.  Their son Joseph died in Lafourche Interior Parish at age 48 hours in January 1837, Séverin Olesius, called Olezie, was born in October 1841, Joseph Augustin in November 1846, Amédée Léonard in October 1849, Joseph Azee in September 1851, and Émile Théodule in January 1855.

During the antebellum period, a Boudreaux from the river who had lived on upper Bayou Teche settled near his cousins on Bayou Lafourche: 

Descendants of Jean Baptiste Adélard BOUDREAUX (1817-; Michel, Claude, Michel, Olivier, Simon)

Jean Baptiste Adélard, called Adélard, fourth and youngest son of Simon-Pierre dit Simonet Boudreaux and Céleste Babin, born in St. James Parish in April 1817, followed his family to upper Bayou Teche but returned to the river.  He married Joséphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Narcisse LeBlanc and his Creole wife Joséphine Senette, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1838.  In August 1850, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted 3 slaves--2 males and a female, all black, ages 33, 30, and 22--on Adélard Boudreau's farm next to Valéry LeBlanc in the parish's Second Congressional District.  Adélard and his family remained on upper Bayou Lafourche, near the boundary of Ascension and Assumption parishes, until the late 1850s, when they moved down bayou to the Lockport/Raceland area.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Gautreaux, and McEvers families.

Other BOUDREAUXs in the Lafourche/Terrebonne Valley

Local church and civil records make it difficult to link many Boudreauxs on the southeastern bayous with known lines of the family there:

Rosa, daughter of Joseph Marie Boudreaux and Rose Gautreaux, married Jean-Louis, son of Jean-Francois Galle of St.-Louis of Siota, Marseille, France, at Assumption in June 1804.  One wonders which Joseph Marie Boudreaux had married Rose Gautreaux

In July 1860, the federal census taker in Assumption Parish counted 4 slaves--3 males and a female, all blacks except for 1 mulatto, ranging in age from 40 to 10, living in 1 house--on Widow L. Boudreaux's farm in the parish's Sixth Ward.

NON-ACADIAN FAMILIES in LOUISIANA

The great majority of the Boudreauxs of South Louisiana are descendants of Michel Boudrot of Cougnes and Port-Royal, but a few who lived in the region during the late colonial and early antebellum periods may not have been Acadians.  One was a Foreign Frenchman, another a French Canadian:

Jean Boudreaux married Catherine Vinsnot.  Their son Jean Baptiste married Marie Louise, daughter of Jean Lalancette, at New Orleans in February 1801.  Was Jean an Acadian who came to Louisiana from France in 1785 with his widowed mother? 

Alexandre, son of Pierre Boudreau and Catherine Mounier of St.-Martin, Île-de-Ré, France, near La Rochelle, born in c1769, died at the home of Mr. Dusouchet, "medical doctor at Carencros," at the northern edge of the old Attakapas District, in November 1808; he was only 39 years old.  The St. Martinville priest who recorded Alexandre's burial said nothing of a wife.  Was Alexandre an Acadian who came to Louisiana after 1785? 

Julien, son of André Boudreau and Angélique Roy of Montréal, married Honorine or Honorite Angeline, 14-year-old daughter of Italian L'ange Vincent Maggiolo of Genoa and his Acadian wife Marie Félicité Breaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in April 1841.  Their son Julien, fils was born posthumously in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1846.  Julien, père died in Lafourche Interior Parish in August 1846; his succession inventory record was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse in July 1847.  Were André and Julien Acadians whose ancestor was among the many Boudrots who had settled in Canada after Le Grand Dérangement

~

Boudreauxs who lived in South Louisiana during the immediate post-war period were a result of the family's participation in the South's peculiar institution: 

Symphorien Boudreaux married Mary Chenier in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in September 1860.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couples' parents' names.  Was Mary an Afro Creole?

Étienne Boudreaux, a free man of color, married Toussine Weber, a free woman of color, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in November 1865.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Moïse Boudreaux married Louison Senegal and settled in Lafayette Parish by the late 1860s.  Judging from Louison's surname, the couple probably were freed persons. 

Maria Boudreaux, freedwoman, married Joseph B. Ravine, freedman, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in January 1866.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Cyphorin, perhaps Symphorien, Boudreaux married--or perhaps remarried to--Louisa Chenier, widow of Ulysse Gabriel, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in April 1866.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couples' parents' names.  Louisa likely was an Afro Creole.  What about Cyphorin? 

Émile, son of Louis Boudreaux and Willie Boudreaux, married Marie Amelia or Aurelia, daughter of Julienne George, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in June 1868.  One suspects that both Émile and Marie Amelia/Aurelia were freed persons. 

Joseph Boudreaux, freedman, married Marie Landry, freedwoman, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in June 1868.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Étienne Boudreaux married Joséphine Charles and settled near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, by the late 1860s.  Joséphine's surname gives a hint that the couple were freed persons. 

CONCLUSION

Boudrots were among the earliest settlers in Acadian, and they came early to Louisiana.  The first of them went to the Bayou Teche valley with the Broussards in the spring of 1765.  Later that year, another family settled at Cabanocé, now St. James Parish, on the river above New Orleans.  A hand full of Boudrots arrived from Maryland in 1767 and 1768, but only one of them was male; in the 1770s, he joined his kinsmen on the western prairies.  After 1785, Boudrots from France joined their cousins in the Attakapas District.  Most of the western Boudreauxs settled in what became Lafayette Parish.  Others lived at Grand Pointe on upper Bayou Teche, near Grand Coteau in St. Landry Parish, in the New Iberia area on lower Bayou Teche, on the lower Vermilion near Youngsville and Abbeville, and near Church Point out on Bayou Plaquemine Brûlé.  

If the Acadians in France had chosen to remain in the mother country, the Boudreauxs would be a fairly small family in Louisiana today.  But most of the many Boudrots who had been exiled to France grabbed at the offer of the Spanish government to join their fellow Acadians in the lower Mississippi valley.  In 1785, dozens of them arrived aboard every one of the Seven Ships from France that reached New Orleans that year.  Two of them chose to settle in the Attakapas District.  The others moved to Acadian communities on the river above the city or, especially, to upper Bayou Lafourche.  A hand full of the Boudreauxs from France remained on the river, in Iberville and perhaps even in Pointe Coupee Parish, but relatively few family lines developed there.  Some later joined their cousins on the western prairies, settling along Bayou Teche as far down as Pattersonville in St. Mary Parish.  The great majority of them settled on upper Bayou Lafourche in what became Assumption Parish.  During the late colonial and early antebellum periods, many of them drifted down bayou into Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes.  A number of Lafourche/Terrebonne valley Boudreauxs moved on to Bayou Teche and the southwestern prairies after the War of 1861-65, but the great majority of them remained on the southeastern bayous. 

By the eve of the War of 1861-65, Boudreauxs had settled in nearly every corner of South Louisiana and had become one of the largest Acadian families in the region.  A few non-Acadian Boudreaus settled among their Acadian namesakes during the antebellum period; one was a native of La Rochelle, France, another of Montréal.  The great majority of the Boudreauxs of South Louisiana, however, are descendants of Michel Boudrot of Cougnes and Port-Royal.  And, for all we know, the Boudreaus from La Rochelle and Montréal also may have been descendants of the Acadian progenitor who took their time following their cousins to Louisiana. 

Judging by the number of slaves they owned during the late antebelluum period, some Boudreauxs lived comfortably on their farms and plantations, especially on the western prairies.  In 1850, Augustin Boudreaux, fils's widow held 40 slaves on her plantation near Grand Coteau.  That same year, Olivier Boudreaux held 32 slaves in Lafayette Parish, and Evariste Boudreaux owned 37 slaves in Pointe Coupee Parish.  In 1860, Osémé Boudreaux owned 29 slaves on his plantation in St. Martin Parish, and Gerasime Boudreaux held 20 slaves in Lafourche Parish.  The great majority of the Boudreauxs who owned slaves, however, held fewer than the 20 needed to be considered as planters.  And most members of the family held no slaves at all on their vacharies and farms.

Dozens of Boudreauxs served Louisiana in uniform during the War of 1861-65, and at least a dozen of them died in Confederate service.   The war was especially hard on the Boudreauxs from upper Bayou Lafourche.  ...

In Acadia, the family's name was usually spelled Boudrot or Boudreau.  In Louisiana, it evolved into Boudreaux but was often spelled Boudraux.  The family's name also is spelled Baudreau, Baudros, Bodreau, Bodro, Boudereaux, Boudraud, Boudreault, Boudreaut, Boudro, Boudrot, Boudroz, Budro.  [See Book Ten for the family's Louisiana "begats"]

NOTES

01.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Aman BOUDRO; Robichaux, Acadian in St.-Malo, 86-87, Family No. 111, calls him Amant BOUDROT, says he was born in c1730 "in the parish of L'Assomption of Pisiguit in Acadie," gives his parents' names, & says he was "blind since age 12." 

His estimated birth year is taken from Robichaux, a careful scholar, but it disagrees with the ages given on the passenger list of La Ville d'Archangel & the Ascension census of 1788. 

Although a NOGUES family lived on Île St.-Jean before Le Grand Dérangement, his second wife, who was born in c1749, nearly a decade before the British transported the Acadians of Île St.-Jean to France, probably was not Acadian but French, like his first wife.  

His marrying so late is explained by his infirmity.  He accomplished so much for someone who was blind since childhood!  How unsettling to think that he saw his parents, his siblings, & his native Pigiguit, but he could not see the ship that took him to VA and on to England, his virtual prison in England, the places where he lived in France, the ship that took him to New Orleans, & the place where he settled in LA.  He never saw either of his wives; they gave him at least 5 children, & he saw none of them!  What did he do for a living?  What an amazing man. 

Why was he & his family not in the Spanish report of Sep 1784 listing Acadians in France who wanted to go to LA?

02.  Wall of Names, 12, calls her Anne BOUDROT veuve Charles BOURG; White, DGFA-1, 205, calls her Anne [BOUDROT], gives her parents' names, her birth/baptismal date & place, says her godparents were Pierre LANDRY & Marie BOUDROT, details her marriage, calls her husband Charles BOURG, gives his parents' names, & places her & her family on Île St.-Jean in the 1730s-50s.  See also De La Roque, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:147; <islandregister.com/1752.html.>; Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 249; "Ristigouche, 24 Oct 1760."     

NOAR, 2:31 (SLC, B5, 185 & M2, 15), her daughter Gertrude's marriage record (the earliest recorded Acadian marriage in LA), calls the bride's father Jacques BOURG, not Charles.  But the marriage record of Anne's daughter Marguerite & the baptismal records of 3 of Anne's grandchildren call the grandfather Charles.  See Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:96, 98, 99, 100.  Was his name Charles-Jacques or Jacques-Charles  Arsenault, Généalogie, 2431, uses Charles & mentions no other part of his name.  White also calls him Charles. 

She & her husband evidently left Tracadie, on the north shore of Île St.-Jean, before or soon after the fall of Louisbourg on Île Royale in Jul 1758, among the few Acadians who escaped the British roundup on the Maritime islands that year (those who fell into British hands were deported to France that autumn).  My guess is that her husband's fishing boat came in handy in their escape to the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore, present-day eastern NB, & they made their way to a Acadian refugee camp at Miramichi or Restigouche.  That they had a fishing boat is attested to in the Île St.-Jean census of 1752.  See De La Roque; <islandregister.com/1752.html.>.  Anne was the only one of her siblings to emigrate to LA.  When & where did she die there? 

I am proud to say that I am a direct ancestor of Anne & husband Charles thru their daughter Gertrude.

Who was the Marie Pierre BOUDREAUX, "age 67 yrs., wife of Pierre BOUDREAUX," who died in Assumption Parish on 23 Mar 1841?  See BRDR, 6:91 (ASM-10, 22), which does not give Marie Pierre's parents' names. 

06.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Anne-Jeanne BOUDRO; BRDR, 3:118, 660 (ASC-2, 184), her marriage record, calls her Anne Jeanne BOUDREAU ...

Her husband's surname also was spelled AVARE, HAVARD. 

Despite what her burial record says, she was "only" 65 years old when she died.  She was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors.

07.  Wall of Names, 12, calls him Rémi BOUDROT, & lists him singly; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2427, the LA section, calls him Augustin-Rémi BOUDREAUX, says he was born in c1755, probablement son of Pierre BOUDREAUX & Anne HÉBERT of Pisiguit, calls his first wife Judith MARTIN, says he married her in c1777 but gives no place of marriage nor her parents' names, says she died at Opelousas on 29 Jan 1806, age 50, calls his second wife Madeleine BENOIT, gives 2 possible sets of parents' names for her as well as one of her previous husbands' names, details his second marriage, says that un parenté au second degré de consanguniité déclarée lors du mariage, gives his death & succession dates, & includes the footnote:  Dans le registres, il est parfois mentionné sous le nom d'Augustin et d'autres fois sous le nom de Rémi.  Ce qui crée une certaine difficulté d'identification; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:56, 109 (Opel. Ch.: v.1-A, p.270), the record of his second marriage, calls him Augustin Rémi BOUDRAUD, "native of Acadia & widower of Julie MARTIN, calls his wife Magdelaine BENOIT, "from Maryland, widow of André PHAVRON (FAVRON)," gives her but not his parents' names, says her parents were "originally from Acadie & inhabitants of this parish," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Vital ESTILETE, William HERGEROEDER, Philippe LACASE, & Joseph FONTENOT, "all inhabitants of this parish"; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:108 (Opel. Ct.Hse.: Succ.#285), a succession record, dated Aug 1822, calls him Augustin Rémy BOUDREAUX, Sr., wid. is Judique MARTIN, but does not gives his parents' names; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-C:87 (Opel. Ch.: v.2, p.15), his burial record, calls him Rémi BOUDREAUX, says he died "at age 85 years," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-C:87 (Opel.Ct.Hse.: Succ. #542), a succession record, dated 23 Oct 1830, calls him Remy BOUDREAUX, does not give his parents' names or mention a wife but lists a son named Augustin Rémy.  See also De Ville, Southwest LA Families, 1785, 12; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:823; Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 152; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 357, 436.

White, DGFA-1, 827, says Augustin-Rémi, son of Pierre BOUDREAUX & Marie DOIRON, married Osite, daughter of Jacques HÉBERT & Marguerite LANDRY, on 7 Jan 1771 at St.-Jacques.  This marriage can be found in BRDR, 2:109, 372 (SJA-1, 12a).  The groom is called Augustin, son of Pierre BOUDROS & Marie DOYRAN [DOIRON], the bride Osithe, daughter of Jacques HÉBERE & Margueritte LANDRIS [LANDRY], & the witnesses to the marriage were Josephe SAUNIER, Thomas THÉRIOT, Jean B. BERGERON, & Josephe DUPUIS.  Osite, daughter of Jacques HÉBERT & Marguerite LANDRY, widow of Alexandre MELANSON, was, according to her burial record in BRDR, 3:524 (SGA-8, 37), age 75 when she was buried in St. James Parish on 1 Sep 1805.  This would give her an estimated birth year of c1728.  According to Arsenault, LA section, cited above, Augustin-Rémi, son of Pierre BOUDREAUX & Anne HÉBERT, was born in c1755!  If Osite's husband was Augustin-Rémi the orphan, the ages just don't match.  What 16-year-old marries a 40-year-old widow?  Note that Arsenault, 1339, the Pisiguit section, lists no son for Pierre BOUDROT & Anne HÉBERT named Augustin-Rémi born in c1755.  In fact, Arsenault says the couple's last child, son Charles-Marie, was born in 1748.  Was there another Augustin BOUDREAUX who came to LA in the 1760s?  Arsenault, 2426-27, the LA section, lists 2 more, neither of whom can be found in Wall of Names:  Augustin, probablement son of Pierre [BOUDREAUX] & Madeleine HÉBERT of Pisiguit, born in 1731, who Arsenault, 2427, says married Osite LANDRY in c1760 evidently in France; & Augustin, son of Pierre [BOUDREAUX] & Marie PRÉJEAN of Grand-Pré, born in c1745, who Arsenault, 2467, says was the one who married Osite HÉBERT at St.-Jacques on 7 Jan 1771.  Note that in the St.-Jacques census of 1777, Ozitte Hébert, age 45, living with sons Joseph MELANSON, age 22, Estienne [MELANSON], age 20, Paul [MELANSON], age 14, and Charles [MELANSON], age 9, was not living with a husband, so she probably was a widow again.  See Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 177; De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 10. 

I am convinced that the Augustin BOUDREAUX of St.-Jacques, who likely died in the 1770s, was not the Augustin dit Rémi BOUDREAUX of Fort San Luìs de Natchez & Attakapas/Opelousas who died in Jun 1830, that they in fact were different men.  Augustin dit Rémi's second marriage record, his succession record, & other primary sources compel me to follow Arsenault, not White, in this matter.  Perhaps Stephen White will straighten up the mess in his eagerly-awaited DGFA-2

The brochure that accompanies the Robert Dafford Mural, Acadian Memorial, St. Martinville, says Augustin dit Rémi is figure number 27 in the mural, calls him Augustin-Rémi BOUDROT, says he came to LA in 1768, settled at Fort San Luìs de Natchez, & adds:  "Age 13 and an orphan when he arrived in Louisiana, he was probably born the year of the exile [1755]. He established his family in the Opelousas country...."   

08.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls him Benjamin [BOUDROT], & lists him with his father, stepmother, & a stepbrother; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 120-21, Family No. 151, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Benjamin-Hilaire BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Hilaire CLÉMENT & Madeleine BRAUD, & says his family resided at Trigavou from 1759-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 68-69, calls him Benjamin, son [Zacarie BOUDREAU's] fils, califat, age 19, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, & calls him Benjamim BOUDROT, his [Zacharie BOUDROT's] son, calker, age 19, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 13th Family aboard L'Amitié with his father, stepmother, & a stepbrother; BRDR, 2:109, 283 (SGA-14, 14), his marriage record, calls him Benjamin Hylario BOUDREAU, calls his wife Élisabethe FARGUESINE, gives his & her parents' names, calls her mother Usine BERI, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Pablo BOUDREAU [his brother], Jean-Baptiste ÉBERT, & Charles BOUDREAU [his brother].  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 47, 59, 92, 134, 176.  

His wife's parents' surnames were probably FERGUSON & BERRY, Anglo or Irish names butchered by the Spanish priests & census takers.  

09.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Blaise BOUDROT; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 97-98, Family No. 124, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Blaise-Julien BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Blaise THIBODAUX & Julienne NOURRY, & that his family resided at Pleudihen from 1763-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 74-75; BRDR, 2:65, 109-10 (ASC-2, 44), his marriage record, calls him Blas BOUDRO, calls his wife Perrina BARRILO, gives no parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Étienne BOUDRAUX & Louis DESHORMAUX; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:79 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ: 1816), his succession inventory record, calls him Blaise Julien BOUDREAUX m. Pérrinne BARILLEAU, but does not give his parents' names.

He was sometimes called Julien Blaise.  See, for example, one of his son Basile's marriage records, dated 15 Apr 1825, in Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:79 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Mar. v.1, #102).

Ch.: v.1, p.25), her death/burial record, calls her Cécile BOUDREAUX, spouse of Charles RICHARD, says she died "at the home of Joseph VINCENT at age 77," that she was buried "in the cemetery on lower Bayou Vermillion," but does not gives her parents' names.  See also De La Roque, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:122. 

12.  Wall of Names, 40, calls her Cécille BOUDROT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 74-75; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 64-65, under Lista parcial de vientitres casamientos acadianos arregalados par Navarro, 20 novembre 1785 [Partial List of 23 marriages Navarro arranged on 20 November 1785], E. Marriages celebrated 12 December 1785, calls her Cécilia BOUDREAU (Estevan BOUDREAU)/Cécile BOUDREAUX (Étienne BOUDREAUX), says she was in the 35th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi[sic], calls her husband Mathurin AYO, immigrant, &, calling her Cécilia BUDREAU of St.-Malo, details her marriage, calls her husband Maturina AYO of La Rochelle, & gives her & his parents' names, calling her mother a BUDREAU also; NOAR, 4:13, 37 (SLC, M5, 43), her marriage record, calls her Cecilia BUDREAU, "native of St.-Malo," calls her husband Maturino AYO, "native of La Rochelle," & says the witnesses to her marriage were Vicente LLORCA & Josef MARTINEZ.    

Her husband also crossed from France to LA aboard L'Amitié.  Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 84-85, calls him Mathurina ALLIOT, 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, hoe, hatchet, & knife after he reached LA.

According to Arsenault, Généalogie, 841, there was an AYOT or AYOTTE family that lived at Chignecto, Acadia, in the 1730s. Was Mathurin a member of that family?  Probably not.  He likely knew Cécile in France & followed her to LA. 

13.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Cécile BOUDRO; BRDR, 2:110, 171 (PCP-19, 40), the record of her first marriage, calls her Cécile BOUDREAU, "res. Bayou des Écors," calls her husband Thomas CALIGAN "of Bretagne, Diocese of Lion," gives her & his parents' names, calls his parents Jean-Thomas CALIGAN & Francoise LETRENOBLE, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Ignace BOUDROT, Francois DELONTE, Félix BERNARD, & Jean LONGUÉPÉE; BRDR, 2:110 (ASM-2, 53), the record of her second marriage, calls her Cicilia [BOUDREAUX] "of St.-Malo, widow of Thomas Ouandon CALLIGANT," calls her husband Pedro SILVI "of St. James Parish," gives her & his parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Maturino DONIS & Juan Bautista BOUDRAUX.  

What is a "minor premise"?

Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 302, the marriage record of Thomas CALEGAN & Marie-Marguerite LEPRINCE, dated 18 Sep 1775, Morlaix, France, calls the groom's parents Jean-Thomas CALEGAN & Francoise TRAON, so he was the same fellow who later married Cécile BOUDREAUX.  The marriage record of 39-year-old son Thomas CALEGAN (by Cécile BOUDREAUX), dated 26 Dec 1837, in Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:136 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Mar. v.2, #44), calls the groom's father Voudat CALEGAN; Thomas's bride, by the way, was Pauline Olive, 18-year-old daughter of Jean Baptiste Tertullien BOUDREAUX, whose mother was ... Émilie Marie BOUDREAUX--which gives some idea of the size of the BOUDREAUX clan.  For information on Thomas CALEGAN's ancestry, see the footnote for Marie-Marguerite LEPRINCE.

Why would she have married at Bayou des Écores after being counted at Valenzuéla?  They are a fairly good distance apart.  Was she married in 1790, not 1791?

14.  Wall of Names, 46 (pl. 12R), calls her Céleste BOUDROT, soeur de la femme [of Christophe DE LAUNE], & lists her with her brother-in-law, sister, & 2 nephews; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 66-67, calls her Céleste BOUDREAU, fille, soeur à la femme [of Christophe DELAUNE], age 20, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Céleste BOUDREAU, girl, sister of the wife [of Christophe DELAUNE], age 20, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 8th Family aboard L'Amitié with her brother-in-law, sister, & 2 nephews; BRDR, 2:110, 340 (SJA-2, 2), the record of her first marriage, calls her Célest BUDRO, calls her husband Juan GEDRI & Juan Femia GEDRI, gives her & his parents' names, says all parents were "of St. John Island, Can." & that the witnesses to her marriage were Josef COLOETR [CLOUÂTRE] & Maria MICHEL; BRDR, 2:40, 110 (ASM-2, 10), the record of her second marriage, calls her Céleste BOUDRAUX, "widow of Juan GUÉDRY," calls her husband Luis AUGERON, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were from Acadia & his were from the "Diocese of d'Ologne in France," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Juan Bautista CAZEBON & Juan MERCIE; NOAR, 6:33 (SLC, F4, 68), her death/burial record, calls her Celestina BOUDROT, says she was "native of St.-Pierre-et-Miquelon in Acadia, resident of La Fourche in this colony," calls her husband Luis ANGERON, but does not give her parents' names.  

Her parents--that is, her father & his first wife--were counted at Tracadie, on the north shore of Île St.-Jean, in Aug 1752, a few years before her birth.  See De La Roque, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:147.  For the possible movement of her parents before & after her birth, see Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 26-27; Book Three.  She likely was the Célestine-Sibilias with her widowed mother & brothers Louis & Jean in the 1st convoy from Châtellerault to Nantes in Oct 1775.  See Robichaux, 27. 

As the debarkation list of L'Amitié & the embarkation/debarkation lists of La Caroline reveal, she & her sister's family sailed to LA on the later ship, not the earlier one. 

BRDR, 2:100, 110 (SJA-2, 2), a marriage record for a Céleste, daughter of Pierre BOUDREAUX & Madeleine BOURG, gives the date "30[sic] Feb 1786 (sic)," calls the bride Célest BUDRO, calls the groom Suliac BELANSHAR, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were from "St. John Island," says his were from St.-Malo, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Josef BURSUA & Francisca SABA.  The date of this marriage to Suliac BLANCHARD (BELANSHAR was the St.-Jacques priest's clumsy way of spelling BLANCHARD), as given in the church record, was obviously wrong as recorded, but it is not the only thing that makes no sense here.  Suliac, son of Charles BLANCHARD, married Marie HÉBERT at Ascension in Oct 1787.  See BRDR, 2:100 (ASC-2, 10).  But Suliac did not die until Aug 1808.  Moreover, he was still having children with Marie HÉBERT from the early 1790s into the early 1800s.  See BRDR, vols. 2 & 3.  So how could he have married Céleste BOUDREAUX at any time in the late 1780s or 1790s?  Note that in the marriage record with Louis AUGERON, she is called the widow of Jean GUÉDRY, not Suliac BLANCHARD.  If  the dates of her other 2 marriages are correct, there's just no room for another marriage to Suliac BLANCHARD.  I am going to assume here that the Céleste BOUDREAUX/Suliac BLANCHARD marriage did not exist, that the church record is somehow mistaken.  It is probably a clumsy repeat of her marriage to Jean GUIDRY on 8 Mar 1786.

Her possible move to the Opelousas District is based on the baptismal record of daughter Scholastique GUIDRY, dated "probably" 30 Aug 1795, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:376 (Opel. Ch.: v.1-A, p.137), which says the girl was born on 4 Jul 1794 but does not say where.  

If she was resident of Lafourche in Dec 1798, why did she die in New Orleans?  Were she & her husband on a visit there?

15.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Charles BOUDRAU fils a la femme [of Honnoré COMMAU], & lists him with his stepfather, mother, & a brother; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 104-05, Family No. 132, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says he was godson of Charles BOURG & Marie-Madeleine BARBE, & that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 42, Family No. 81, calls him Charles BOUDROT, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 52-53, calls him Charles, fils à la femme [of Honnoré COMMAU, marin, age 14, on the embarkation list, & Charles BOUDROT, [Honoré COMEAUX's] wife's son, sailor, age 14, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 45th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his stepfather, mother, & a brother.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 495; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 29, 160.

His parents are in Robichaux's study of the Acadians at Châtellerault, so he & his brother Joseph-Marie probably were part of the failed Poitou settlement in the early 1770s.  See Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 17, Family No. 33.  

What happened to him in LA?  

16.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls him Charles BOUDROT, & lists him with his wife & a son; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 120-21, Family No. 151, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were René GUILLOT & Francoise DAIGLE, & says his family lived at Trigavou from 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 17-18, Family No. 32, calls him Charles BOUDROT, says he was born in c1764 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, says he was a carpenter, says he married Marie GAUTROT in c1784 but gives no place of marriage, says she was born in c1766 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal record of son Charles-Marie, baptized 12 Mar 1785, St.-Nicolas, Nantes, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 68-69, calls him Charles BOUDREAU, charpentier, age 21, on the embarkation list, Juan Carlos BOUDREAU, on the debarkation list, & Charles BOUDROT, carpenter, age 21, on the complete listing, says he was in the 15th Family aboard L'Amitié with his wife & a son, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names, says they were married in c1784 but gives no place of marriage, & lists the implements the Spanish gave him after he reached LA; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:80 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #519), his death/burial record, calls him Charles BOUDREAUX but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.

His father's family is 2 up from his on the embarkation list of L'Amitié.  

17.  Wall of Names, 47, calls him Charles BOUDROT.

What happened to him in LA?  Was he the Charles BOUDREAUX who died in Ascension Parish, "age ca. 50 yrs.," in Sep 1830.  See BRDR, 5(rev.):85 (ASC-4, 222).  Or the one who died near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, at "age 75 yrs." in June 1857?  See BRDR, 8:83 (SPH-2, 158).  Neither of these burial records gives his parents' names or mention a wife?  Did he ever marry?  Did he even survive childhood?

If he was the Charles BOUDREAUX who died in Assumption Parish in Jun 1857, he would have been one of the last Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

18.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls him Charles-Marie [BOUDROT], & lists him with his parents & no siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 17-18, Family No. 32, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles-Marie BOUDROT, gives his parents' but not his godparents' names, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 68-69, calls him Charles-Marie, son [Charles BOUDREAU's] fils, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Charles-Marie BOUDROT, son [of Charles BOUDROT], nursling, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 15th Family aboard L'Amitié with his parents & no siblings; BRDR, 3:42, 119 (ASM-2, 109), the record of his first marriage, calls him Carlos Maria BOUDRAUX "of St.-Nicolas, Nantes," calls his wife Victoria Clara AUCOIN "of Chantenais, Nantes, France," gives his & her parents' names, says her mother was deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Josef Antonio SOLAR & Ambrosio HÉBERT; BRDR, 3:46, 119 (ASM-2, 244), the record of his second marriage, calls him Carlos Maria BOUDREAUX, "widower of Victoria Clara AUCOIN," calls his wife Rosalia Dorotea AYSENNE, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Hilario BRAUX, Josef Olivier GAUTRAUX, & Francisco TUREYRA; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:80 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #677), his death/burial record, calls him Charles Marie BOUDREAUX, gives his parents' names but mentions no wife, & says he died "at age 50 yrs."   See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 176.

Where was he in Jan 1791, when he was only 5 years old?  Did the Spanish census taker simply miss him?  

19.  Wall of Names, 40 (pl. 10L), calls him Charles-Michel [BOUDROT], & lists him with his widowed mother & 4 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 90-91, Family No. 117, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles-Michel BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Charles DAIGLE & Frncoise BOURG, & says his family resided at Trigavou from 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 17, Family No. 31, calls him Charles-Michel [BOUDROT], gives his parents' names, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73, calls him Charles-Michel, son [Veuve BOUDREAUX's] fils, califat, age 24, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Charles-Michel BOUDROT, her [Widow BOUDROT (Brigitte PART)'s] son, calker, age 24, on the complete listing, says he was in the 28th Family aboard L'Amitié with his mother & 4 siblings, & that he was born 23 Oct 1761 but gives no birthplace.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 505.  

Did he ever marry?

20.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Élisabeth BOUDROT; White, DGFA-1, 203, calls her Isabelle (Élisabeth) BOUDROT, & provides much of her personal data, including the notation that she & husband Étienne received "disp 4-4 cons" from the Church in order to marry; BRDR, 1a(rev.):31, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Isabelle BOUDROT, gives her parents' names, & says her godparents were François LEBLANC & Élisabeth BOUDROT; BRDR, 1a(rev.):30, her marriage record, called her Élisabet BOUDROT, age ca 23, says her husband was age ca 20, gives her & his parents' names, says that she & her husband signed the marriage document with an x, that the witnesses to her marriage were Claude BOUDROT, who signed with an x, Jean TÉRRIOT, who signed his name, Jacques TÉRRIOT, who signed his name, & Joseph BOUDROT, who signed with an x, but says nothing about a marriage dispensation.  See also Stanley LeBlanc PDF, "Acadian Prisoners, 1761-1762 at Ft. Edward, Pisiguit."

21.  Wall of Names, 40, calls her Isabelle BOUDROT veuve TIBODEAU; White, DGFA-1, 216, gives her birth year, parents' names, & other details of her life but says nothing of her time in LA; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 160, says her second husband was born in c1728, was a seaman, that he married his first wife in c1757, that she died in 1759 at St.-Servan, France, that he died at age 54 & was buried on 21 Jan 1782 at St.-Jacques, Nantes.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:104. 

22.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Étienne BOUDROT; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 97-98, Family No. 124; Robichaux, Acadians in Chattelerault, 14, Family No. 27; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 18, Family No. 33; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 74-75; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:83 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, p. 20), his death/burial record, calls him Étienne BOUDREAUX, says he died "at age 84 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:83 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: 1825), his succession inventory record, calls him Étienne BOUDREAUX m. Marguerite THIBODAUX, gives his death date, & lists his children as Joseph m. Marguerite Ludivine PITRE, d.Julien Blaise m. Perrinne BARRILLEAUX, Anne Henriette m. d.Jean Amant BOUDREAUX, Jean Étienne, Ives Cyprien, & Marie Émilie m. Jean Baptiste ROGER.

23.  Wall of Names, 40 (pl. 10L), calls him Étienne [BOUDROT], & lists him with his widowed mother & 4 siblings; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2426, 2428, the LA section; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 90-91, Family No. 117, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Étienne BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Charles HÉBERT & Marguerite GUILLOT, & that his family resided at Trigavou from 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 17, Family No. 31, calls him Étienne [BOUDROT], gives his parents' names, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73, calls him Étienne, son [Veuve BOUDREAUX's] fils, marin, age 18, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Étienne BOUDROT, her [Widow BOUDROT (Brigitte PART)'s] son, sailor, age 18, on the complete listing, says he was in the 28th Family aboard L'Amitié with his mother & 4 siblings, & that he was born 29 Dec 1766 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:111, 321 (ASC-2, 11), his marriage record, calls him Étienne BOUDREAU, calls his wife Victorie GOTREAU, gives no parents' names but says they "were Acadians," & that the witness to his marriage was Manuel ORDONEZ; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:83 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: 1819), his succession inventory, calls him Étienne BOUDREAUX.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 505.  

24.  Wall of Names, 41, calls him Étienne BOUDROT; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 110, Family No. 141, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Étienne BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Étienne BOUDROT, "his uncle," & Agathe BARILLOT, "his aunt," & that his family resided at Pleudihen from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 17-18, Family No. 35; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 24-25, Family No. 45; BRDR, 2:111, 244 (ASM-2, 7), his marriage record, calls him Estevan BOUDRAUX, calls his wife Ursula Olivia DOIRON, gives his & her parents' names, says his father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Nicolas HÉBERT & Ambrosio HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:83 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #612), his death/burial record, calls him Étienne BOUDREAUX, says he died "at age 62 yrs.," gives his parents' names but does not mention a wife.  

One of the marriage records of son Marin, dated 17 Aug 1829, in Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:95 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #276), calls him Étienne Marin, so this may have been his middle name if not just a reference to his father.

25.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9:), calls her Félicité BOUDRAU, & lists her with her husband & no children; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 555, calls her Félicité BOUDROT, gives her parents' names & her birth date but no birthplace, says she was age 13 in 1765, lists her with her father, mother, & younger brother Joseph in family no. 50, Borderun, Sauzon, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in 1765, & says "The family was held in Bristol (?), England, entered France at Morlaix, members of this family seem to have embarked for Louisiana in 1785 on the St. Rémi"; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls her Félicité BOUDRAU, sa [Jean LEJEUNE's] femme, age 31, on the embarkation list, & Félicité BOUDROT, his [Jean LEJEUNE's] wife, age 31, on the complete listing, says she was in the 16th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her husband & no children, & details her marriage, including her & her husband's parents' names, but gives no place of marriage.  

It was unusual for an Acadian couple to remain childless.  

26.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9L), calls him Félix BOUDRAU, & lists him with his wife & no children; Arsenault, Généalogie, 1338, 1343, the Pisiguit section, says he was born in 1729, says his parents were François [BOUDROT] & Angélique DOIRON, that he had 2 youngger brothers named Armand & Charles, details his first marriage including his wife's parents, says they married at L'Assomption, Pisiguit, that his first wife gave him two children--daughter Félicité in 1753, & son Joseph-Simon in 1764--that he & his first wife were deported to England, that they lived at St.-Mathieu-de-Morlaix, France, in 1764, & at the village de Borderun, Belle-Île-en-Mer, in 1767; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 555, calls him Félix BOUDROT, says he was age 36 in 1765, says he was born 4 Apr 1729 at L'Assomption, Pigiguit, does not give his parents' names, calls his wife Marie-Josèphe LEBLANC, age 36 in 1765, says she was born in Apr 1729 but gives no birthplace, says she died at Belle-Île in 1773, & was a sister of Jean & Pierre LE BLANC of Belle-Île-en-Mer, lists a son Joseph BOUDROT, age 2 in 1765, born 6 Jun 1764, but gives no birthplace, a daughter Félicité BOUDROT, age 13 in 1765, born 24 May 1753, but gives no birthplace, & says "The family was held in Bristol (?), England, entered France at Morlaix, members of this family seem to have embarked for Louisiana in 1785 on the St. Rémi, family no. 50 at Borderun, Sauzon; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls him Félix BOUDRAU, charpentier, age 54, on the embarkation list, & Félix BOUDROT, carpenter, age 54, on the complete listing, says he was in the 19th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his wife & no children, &, calling him Félix BOUDREAUX, widr. Magdelaine HÉBERT, details his third marriage, including his wife's first husband's name, but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 2:111, 124 (ASC-2, 9), the record of his third marriage, calls him Félix BOUDREAU, "an Acadian & widower of Magdalena HEVERT," calls his wife La Luce BOURG, "an Acadian & widow of Pedro HÉBERT," does not give his or her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Charle AUCOIN & Magdaleine HÉBERT.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 495.

Arsenault, Généalogie, 2428, the LA section, says that the Félix who would have crossed on Le St.-Rémi was born in 1752, son of Pierre [BOUDREAUX] & Cécile VESCOT of Beaubassin, that he married Madeleine HÉBERT in c1775, & remarried to Luce HÉBERT, widow of Pierre HÉBERT, at Ascension, now Donaldsonville, on 30 Aug 1787.  Arsenault adds that this Félix was living on Île St.-Jean in 1752 & at Cherbourg in 1772, which means he would have been deported to France in 1758-59, not to VA in 1755 & England in 1756 & repatriated to France in 1763. 

Why did the official at Nantes in Sep 1784 calls his wife Marguerite when her name was Madeleine?

Arsenault, at least in his Pigiguit formulation, evidently got this one right.  Félix was an older brother of the Jean-Charles BOUDROT who appears just above him on the passenger list of Le St.-Rémi.  They were only a few years apart in age & both natives of L'Assomption, Pigiguit.  Note that Jean-Charles named one of his sons Félix-Marie.

Who was the Félix BOUDREAU who married fellow Acadian Françoise GUILLOT at Ascension on 16 Oct 1786?  See BRDR, 2:111, 348 (ASC-2, 5).  Thanks to the priest at Ascension, who once again did not bother to include a couple's parents' names, we have no clue.  In light of the marriage record of this Félix BOUDREAUX in Aug 1787, which calls him the widower of Magdelaine HÉBERT, not Françoise GUILLOT, there probably were 2 grown Félix BOUDREAUXs at Ascension in the late 1780s.  The other probably came from France also, though he does not appear on the passenger list of any of the Seven Ships & thus not in Wall of Names

27.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9L), calls him enfant [BOUDRAU], & lists him with his parents & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 22-23, Family No. 42, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Félix-Marie BOUDROT, does not give his godparents' names, &, calling him Félix [BOUDROT], details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls him [unnamed child], à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, & child GUÉDRY[sic], a nursling, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 18th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 3 siblings; BRDR, 3:120, 432 (ASM-2, 103), his marriage record, calls him Félix Maria BOUDRAUX "of Nantes, France," calls his wife Rosalia HENNRY, gives his & her parents' names, says his father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Jean Pierre BOURQUE & Ambroise HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:84 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, p.34), his death/burial record, calls him Félix Marie BOUDREAUX, says he was 42 years old when he died, gives his parents' names, but does not mention a wife. 

28.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Francois BOUDRO; BRDR, 2:112, 696 (ASM-2, 3), his marriage record, calls him Francisco BOUDREAUX, calls his wife Maria TIBODAUX, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of the Parish of Plevoir in Britany, France," her parents were "of the Parish of Pledien, Britany, France," that all parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan MAILLET & Joseph HENRY; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:84 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, p.21), his death/burial record, calls him Francois BOUDREAUX, says he was 55 years old when he died, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  

29.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls him Francois-Xavier BOUDROT, & lists him with his wife & no children; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2426-28, the LA section; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 90-91, Family No. 117, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Francois-Xavier BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says he was godson of Zacharie BOUDROT & Marie GUILLOT, & that his family resided at Trigavou from 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 17, Family No. 31, calls him François-Xavier BOUDROT, says he was born c1759 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, says he was a sailor, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 19-20, Family No. 36, calls him François-Xavier BOUDROT, says he was born c1759 but gives no birthplace, that he was a seaman & carpenter, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, including his wife's parents' names, says she was born c1761 at Boulogne-sur-Mer, that "both parties were residents of the Parish of Saint-Martin of Chantenay" at the time of the marriage, & details their voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls him François-Xavier BOUDREAU, charpentier, age 25, on the embarkation list, Franco Xavier BAUDREAUD, on the debarkation list, & François-Xavier BOUDROT, carpenter, age 25, on the complete listing, says he was in the 30th Family on the embarkation list & the 31st Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with his wife & no children, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names, & says he & his wife were married in 1785 but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 2:112, 476 (SGA-14, 9), the record of his second marriage, calls him Francisco Xavier BUDRAUX, "widower of Margarita DUGAS," calls his wife Maria Francisca LE BLANC, gives his & her parents' names, but gives no witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 2:118 (SGA-8, 22, #121), his death/burial record, calls him Xavier BOUDREAUX, "age 30 years," gives his parents' names but does not mention a wife or wives.  

His widowed mother & 5 of his siblings came to LA on a later ship, L'Amitié, & settled at Ascension, downriver from Baton Rouge.  One wonders if he kept in touch with the rest of his family.  

Although his second marriage was recorded by a St.-Gabriel priest, he may have been married at Manchac, at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District, where the majority of the passengers from Le Beaumont settled after they reached New Orleans.  Baton Rouge did not have a church of its own until 1793, so priests from St.-Gabriel administered the sacraments in the lower Baton Rouge District until it did.  

Despite what the St.-Gabriel priest recorded for his burial in Feb 1798, he would have been a month shy of age 37, not 30, at the time of his death.  

30.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls her Francoise BOUDROT veuve DUGAST, & lists her with a son; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Supply.htm>, Family No. 20, says that she & her first husband, called Joseph CLOCSINEY de l'Isle Saint Jean, age 28, survived the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59 along with sons Grégoire CLOCSINEY, age 2 1/2, & Pierre CLOSCSINEY, age 6 mos.; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 62, Family No. 115, calls her Françoise BOUDROT, widow of Joseph CLOCCINET, says she was born in 1738 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, details her second marriage, calls her second husband Marin DUGAST, says he was born in 1747 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, says he was a carpenter, died age 35, & was buried 10 Oct 1783, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 10-11, calls her Francoise BOUDREAU, veuve DUGAST, age 45, on the embarkation list, Francisca BOUDREAUD, viuda DUGATS, on the debarkation list, & Francoise BOUDROT, widow DUGAT, age 45, on the complete listing, says she was in the 32nd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with a son, & details her second marriage, including the name of her second husband, his parents' names, & her parents' names; BRDR, 2:116, 213 (SGA-14, 1, #2), the record of her third marriage, calls her Maria BOUDROS, "widow of Maxin DUGAS," calls her husband Carlos DAIGLE, does not give any parents' names but says they were "all natives of the Parish of the Holy Family [Pigiguit] in Acadia," & gives no witnesses to her marriage; BRDR, 2:112 (ASM-3), her death/burial record, calls her Francisca BOUDREAUX, "age 56 years, spouse of Carlos DAIGLE," but does not give her parents' names.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:102; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 57, 88, 140.

So was her full name Françoise-Marie or Marie-Françoise?  Probably the former. 

She & her third husband were in Families No. 31 & 32 aboard Le Bon Papa, so they probably knew one another back in France, &, since they were both natives of Ste.-Famille Parish, Pigiguit, they may have known one another in Acadia.

31.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Hélène BOUDRO.

What happened to her in LA?

32.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9L), calls her Enrriete [BOUDRAU], & lists him with her father, stepmother, & 3 half-siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 22-23, Family No. 42, calls her Henriette-Charlotte [BOUDROT], details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s, &, calling her Henriette [BOUDROT], its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls her Enrriette, sa [Jean-Charles BOUDRAU's] fille, age 13, on the embarkation list, & Henriette GUÉDRY[sic], his [Jean-Charles BOUDROT's] daughter, age 13, on the complete listing, says she was in the 18th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her father, stepmother, & 3 half-siblings, & that she was born in 1772 but gives no birthplace.

What happened to her in LA?

33.  Wall of Names, 47, calls him Ignace BOUDROT, & lists him with his wife Anne PIERCON; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Supply.htm>, Family No. 27, show that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, he traveled with the family of his uncle Antoine BOUDREAUX; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 101, "Family" No. 128, details his relationship with Antoine BOUDREAUX but does not give his parents' names.  See also De La Roques, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:115; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 20; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 517. 

The baptismal records of 2 of his sons in BRDR, vol. 2, recorded at Pointe-Coupée, hint that he & his wife may have settled at Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  

34.  Wall of Names, 12, calls him Jean BOUDROT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2426, the LA section, calls him Jean BOUDREAUX, says he was born in c1740, that he probablement was son of Michel [BOUDREAUX] & Anne-Marie LE BLANC of Port-Royal, that he married Marguerite GUILBAULT but gives no date or place of marriage, does not give her parents' names, & lists their child as Jean-Charles, born in 1762, but gives no birthplace.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 251; <thecajuns.com/cardmoney.htm>.

His birth year & the probable names of his parents are from a posting by genealogist Stanley LeBlanc on lghc@thecajuns.com, 20 Apr 2006.  Why does he have no children at Halifax in Aug 1763?  Arsenault, 444, the Port-Royal section, does not list Jean as one of the children of Michel, son of François BOUDREAUX, & Anne-Marie, daughter of Pierre LE BLANC, who married in c1725; I assume this is the reason why Arsenault says probablement in his LA section listing for Jean. 

35.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls him Jean [BOUDROT], & lists him with his widowed mother & sister; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 102-03, Family No. 131, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-François BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were François BOUDROT & Marguerite DAIGLE; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls him Jean, son [Marie DAIGRE, veuve BOUDREAU's] fils, age 11, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Jean BOUDROT, her [Marie DAIGLE, widow BOUDROT's] son, age 11, & says he was in the 61st Family aboard La Bergère with his mother & sister.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 28.

What happened to him in LA after he was counted at Ascension in Jan 1788? 

36.  Wall of Names, 47, calls him Jean BOUDROT; BRDR, 2:113, 593 (ASM-2, 73), his marriage record, calls him Juan BOUDRAUX "of Tregaoux, Diocese of St.-Malo, France," calls his wife Françoise PITRE "of St.-Malo & widow of Maturino FERLAUT," gives his & her parents'  names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Estevan POIREAU & Carlose GUILLOT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:86 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: 1807), inquest into his death, calls him Jean BOUDREAUX, says he "accidentally drowned," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:86 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: 1807), his succession inventory record, calls him Jean BOUDREAUX m. Françoise PITRE but does not give his parents' names or list any children.

37.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, & lists him with his wife & 3 children; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2430, the LA section, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX, son of Alexandre [BOUDREAUX] & Marie-Madeleine VERREAULT, gives no birth date or birthplace, says Jean-Baptiste was widower of Marie-Modeste TRAHAH, & that he married Anne-Josèphe PITRE, daughter of Joseph [PITRE] & Madeleine PITRE, widow of Théodore THÉRIOT, at St.-Gabriel on 26 Feb 1786; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 85, Family No. 110; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 16, Family No. 32; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 21-22, Family No. 41; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls him Jean Bte BOUDREAU, marin, age 29, on the embarkation list, Juan Bautista BAUDREAU, on the debarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, sailor, age 29, on the complete listing, says he was in the 22nd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his wife & 3 children, & details his first marriage, including the names of his & his wife's parents; BRDR, 2:113-14, 376 (SGA-14, 2, #5), the record of his second marriage, calls him Juan Bautista BUDRO, "widower of Marie Modesta TRAHAN," calls his wife Ana Josefa HENRI, "widow of Théodoro TERIOT," gives his parents' names, says her parents were Pedro HENRI & Magdalena PITRET "of the Assumption in Canada" [Pigiguit], says all parents were "of Parish of the Assumption in Canada," gives his wife's first husband's name, but gives no witnesses to the marriage; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:86 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #555), his burial record, calls him Jean Baptiste BOUDREAUX, says he died "at age 79 yrs.," gives 2 death dates, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.    

Arsenault, cited above, evidently mixed up Jean-Baptiste's second wife's parents' names.  The LA church records sets it straight--his second wife was a HENRY whose mother was a PITRE. 

Priests at nearby St.-Gabriel administered the sacraments at Baton Rouge until that area got a church of its own in 1793.  Jean-Baptiste's second marriage probably took place at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District at Manchac.  His second wife also was a native of Pigiguit.

His burial record is based on process of elimination. 

38.  Wall of Names, 31, (pl. 7R), calls him Jean[sic] BOUDROT, frère [of Cécille BOUDROT, veuve RICHARD], & lists him with his sister & a niece; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2430, the LA section, calls him Joseph BOUDREAUX, says he was born in c1770, son of Charles [BOUDREAUX] & Madeleine BOURGEOIS, "réfugiés à Saint-Malo, France," details his marriage, calls his wife Isabelle, daughter of Pierre TRAHAN & Marguerite DUON of Belle-Isle-en-Mer, "où ses parents étaient réfugiés," says their children were Scholastique, born in 1795, Joseph in 1796, Marie-Phélonise in 1798, Philémon in 1798, Pélagie in 1800, Anne-Adélaïde in 1802, Anastasie in 1803, & François in 1807, but give no birthplaces, & says they settled on Bayou Vermilion; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 95-96, Family No. 120, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Joseph BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Pierre AUCOIN & Marie AUCOIN, & that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1766-69 & at Pleudihen from 1770-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 22-23, calls him Jean BOUDREAU, frère de la ditte [Cécille BOUDREAU, veuve RICHARD], marin, age 18, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Jean BOUDROT, brother of the above [Cécille BOUDROT, widow RICHARD], a sailor, age 18, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 47th Family aboard La Bergère with his widowed sister & a niece; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:89, 767 (SM Ch.: v.4, #62), his marriage record, calls him Joseph BOUDRO, calls his wife Isabelle TRAHANT, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were from "Bretagne" & hers from "Belisle en Bretagne," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Francois BOUDRO, Félix LOPES, Charles DUON, & Isabel APOLINES; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 3:73 (Laf. Ch.: v.3, p. 131), his burial record, calls him Joseph BOUDREAUX m. Elizabeth Pauline TRAHAN, does not give his parents' names, & says he was 68 when he died.

His birth/baptismal record in Robichaux, cited above, & association with Cécile BOUDREAUX is evidence that his name was not Jean but Joseph, & that he was the Joseph, son of Charles BOUDRO & Magdeleine BOURGEOIS, who married Isabelle TRAHANT at Attakapas in Nov 1792.  Why, & when, did he leave the river & go to the Attakapas District?  For more evidence that he was the "Jean" BOUDREAUX who came to LA aboard La Bergère, see the baptismal records of his children in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, vol. 1-A, which give his parents' names, says he was born in St.-Servan, & always calls him Joseph.  

39.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDRAU, & lists him with his wife Marguerite BEDIN & 2 sons; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2430, the LA section, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX, does not give his birth year or his parents' names, says he married Marguerite BOUREL but gives no date or place, lists only a single children, Laurent, born in 1787 but gives no birthplace, & says they settled at Donaldsonville; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 104-05, Family No. 132, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, gives his parents' names but does not give his godparents' names nor his birthplace in England, & says his family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 17, Family No. 33, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, & gives his parents' names but does not give his godparents' names nor his birthplace in England; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 15-16, Family No. 30, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, says he was born 8 Oct 1759 in England, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, calls his wife Marguerite BEDEL dite Picard, says she was born in c1762 "in the parish of Targe," includes the birth/baptismal record of daughter Marie-Marguerite, baptized 24 Sep 1779, Cenan, goddaughter of Joseph BOUDROT & Anastasie BELLEMÈRE, & says "this family was residing in the parish of St.-Martin of Chantenay near Nantes by March 1, 1785"; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 21, Family No. 40, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, says he was born in c1756 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, calls his wife Marguerite BEDEL, says she was born in c1762 but gives no birthplace, says they were married in c1782 but gives no place of marriage, does not give her parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal record of son Jean-Charles, baptized 1 Mar 1785, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébrt, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 52-53, calls him Jean-Batiste BOUDRAU, perceur, age 25, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, borer, age 25, on the complete listing, says he was in the 44th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his wife Marguerite BEDEL, age 23, & 2 sons, details his marriage, including his but not her parents' names, says she was "called Picard" & that they were married in 1778 but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 2:114 (ASM-3, 22), his burial record, calls him Juan Bautista BOUDREAUX, age 40 years, spouse of Margarita VEDEL, both natives of Acadia, but does not give his parents' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 28, 57, 87, 136, 160.  

His birth in England means that his parents were exiled to VA in 1755, probably from one of the Minas settlements, & deported to England in 1756 after the VA authorities refused to accept the Acadian exiles sent to that colony.  

Why was he called Carlos Bautiste, or Charles-Baptiste, in daughter Marie-Leonore's baptismal record, dated 8 Apr 1792, in BRDR, 2:116 (ASC-4, 64)?  Was his full name Jean-Charles-Baptiste?  He did have a brother named Charles. 

Was Jean-Baptiste and his father's family part of the settlement venture in Poitou in the early 1770s?  Why else would Robichaux have included them in his Châtellerault study?  

Despite what the priest said in his burial record & some of the baptismal records of their children in BRDR, 2:112 (ASM-1, 103) & 114 (ASM-1, 88), which call their parents Acadians, Jean-Baptiste's wife probably was not Acadian.  I have not found the BEDEL/BEDELLE/BEDIN/BEVEL/VEDEL family in either Arsenault or White.  Targé, her birthplace, is in present-day Dept. of Vienne of the Poitou-Charentes region of west-central France, so it is likely that Jean-Baptiste married a local French girl, not a fellow Acadian, when his family resided in Poitou.  Until I find evidence to the contrary, I will consider her to be French, not Acadian.  

What happened to his daughter Marie-Marguerite, who would have been only 6 in 1785?  When did she die?  Where?

The family just below his on the embarkation list of Le St.-Rémi is that of his stepfather, mother, & 2 younger brothers. 

Evidently the 2 sons he brought to LA from France, Jean-Baptiste, fils & Jean-Charles, died either on the crossing to New Orleans or in the colony soon after the family arrived, & only his sons born in LA survived to carry on this branch of the family.  

What killed him at such a young age?

40.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Jean-Baptiste [BOUDRAU], & lists him with his parents & a brother; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 21, Family No. 40, calls him Jean-Baptiste [BOUDROT], & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 52-53, calls him Jean-Bte, son [Jean-Batiste BOUDRAU's] fils, age 2, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, his [Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT's] son, age 2, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 44th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & a brother.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 28, 160.  

Unfortunately, the debarkation list for Le St.-Rémi did not survive, so he, along with his younger brother Jean-Charles, may have died on the crossing from France or in LA soon after the family reached the colony.  See Winzerling, Acadian Odyssey, 139-40, for a discussion of the deaths aboard this vessel and after it reached New Orleans. 

41.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDRO; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 86-87, Family No. 111, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says they were "residents of Port St. Hubert," that his godparents were Germain BOUDROT & Madeleine DUBOC, & that his family resided at Plouër from 1763-72; BRDR, 2:109, 113 (ASM-2, 30), his marriage record, calls him Juan BOUDRAUX, calls his wife Ana BOUDRAUX, "widow of Pedro LEBLANC," gives his & her parents' names, says all parents were "of Acadia," that both his parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Étienne BOUDRAU, Joseph AUCOIN, & Joseph DUPUIS.

42.  Wall of Names, 12, calls him Jean-Charles BOUDROT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2428, the LA section, calls him Jean-Charles BOUDREAUX, says he was born in 1762 but gives no birthplace, that his parents were Jean [BOUDREAUX] & Marguerite GUILBAULT, says he married Dorothée, daughter of Charles COMEAUX & Anastasie SAVOIE, in c1785, that his children were Jean, born in c1786, Lufroy in c1787, Jean-Baptiste in 1788, Suzanne in 1790, Augustin in 1793, Silésie in 1795, Marie-Euphémie in 1797, Louis in 1801, & Émilie in 1803, but gives no birthplaces, that his parents were prisoners at Halifax when he was born, & that he died at Opelousas on 13 Jun 1807, no age given; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B: 84 (SM Ch.: v.4, #469), his burial record, calls him Jean-Charles BOUDREAUX dit Donat à [son of] Firmin LEBLANC[sic], of this Post, does not gives his parents' names or mention a wife, & says he died 12 Jun 1807 "at his home in Vermillion[sic]" & was buried 13 Jul[sic, probably a misprint] 1807 at age 45 yrs; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B: 84 (SM Ct. Hse.: Succ. #31), his succession record, calls him Jean-Charles BOUDREAUX m. Dorothée COMEAU, & says his [surviving] children were Jean, Lufroy, & Susanne m. to Salvator MOUTON.  See also De Ville, Attakapas Post Census, 1771, 14.  

Was he born in Boston, MA?  The baptismal record of grandson Joseph De Rosin/Rozn BOUDREAUX, dated 22 Oct 1807, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:84-85 (SM Ch.: v.6-A, p.30; SM Ch.: Folio E, p.77), says the boy's paternal grandfather, Jean Charles BOUDRAUD, was "of" & "from" Boston.  Perhaps Donat's parents had been exiled to MA in 1755, married there, & in 1763 made their way to Halifax to join their relatives, who were still lingering there.  If so, why are Jean BOUDRAU & his unnamed wife, counted at Halifax in Aug 1763, listed with no children?  See Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 251.  So was Jean-Charles dit Donat born at Halifax after Aug 1763?  Donat's estimated birth year is from Arsenault & seems to be a compromise between his age in the Attakapas census of 1771 & his burial record.  His inclusion in the Attakapas census of 1771 is based on the assumption that his mother remarried to Simon LEBLANC.  

For evidence of his marriage to Dorothée COMEAUX, who in one place is said to be from Pointe Coupée, see Hébert., D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:89, 1-B:84, 85, 188.  The date of the marriage is from Arsenault. 

43.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9L), calls him Jean-Charles BOUDRAU, & lists him with his second wife & 4 children; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 105-06, Family No. 133; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls him Jean-Charles BOUDRAU, perelleur, age 51, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Charles BOUDROT, wood polisher, age 51, on the complete listing, says he was in the 18th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his second wife & 4 children, details his second marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names, & says daughter Henriette was born in 1772 but gives no birthplace.

How was he kin to Félix BOUDROT, who appears just below him on the passenger list of Le St.-Rémi?  They were only 3 years apart in age.  Were they brothers?  Note that Jean-Charles named one of his sons Félix-Marie.  Jean-Charles was a younger brother of Amand BOUDREAUX, blind since age 12, who sailed to France with Jean-Charles & his family in 1763.  Despite his infirmity, Amand married twice in France, to Frenchwomen, & came to LA aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships.  Amand & Jean-Charles came on separate vessels because Amand did not go to Poitou in the early 1770s but remained in the St.-Malo area, whereas Jean-Charles & his family did go to Poitou & ended up in Nantes, across the Bretagne peninsula from St.-Malo. 

44.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Jean-Charles [BOUDRAU], & lists him with his parents & a brother; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 21, Family No. 40, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Charles BOUDROT, gives his parents' but not his godparents' names, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 52-53, calls him Jean-Charles, sa [Jean-Batiste BOUDRAU's] fils, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Charles BOUDROT, a son [of Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT], nursling, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 44th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & a brother.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 28, 160.  

Unfortunately, the debarkation list for Le St.-Rémi did not survive, so he, along with his older brother Jean-Baptiste, fils, may have died on the crossing from France or in LA soon after the family reached the colony.  

45.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls him Jean-Charles [BOUDROT], & lists him with his parents, 3 siblings, & a minor; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 108-09, Family No. 138, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Charles BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were François LEJEUNE & Marie RICHARD, & that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 17, Family No. 34, calls him Jean-Charles [BOUDROT], gives his parents' names, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 23-24, Family No. 43, calls him Jean-Charles [BOUDROT], gives his parents' names, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 68-69, calls him Jean-Charles, son [Jh BOUDREAU's] fils, marin, age 18, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Jean-Charles BOUDROT, his [Joseph BOUDROT's] son, sailor, age 18, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 14th Family aboard L'Amitié with his parents, 3 siblings, & a minor; BRDR, 2:112, 474 (ASC-2, 8), probably the record of his first marriage, calls him Jean-Charles BOUDREAU, gives no parents' names but says his parents "were Acadians," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Francois LANDRY & Lizabeth A. LANDRIE; BRDR, 2:87, 112 (ASC-2, 52), the record of his second marriage, calls him Juan Carlos BOUDRO, calls his wife Maria BERTRAND, gives his & her parents' names but not his first wife's name, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Juan DAIGLE, Ambroise BERTRAND, & Joseph ROBICHO.  

The priest at Ascension in 1787 often did not record the married couples' parents' names.  This being the case here, the identity of Jean-Charles's first wife is pure guess work based on the following line of reasoning:  First, their ages are right; he was born in c1767, she in c1769.  Second, they came to LA aboard the same ship & settled in the same community.  Third, I have found husbands for most of the other Marguerite LEBLANCs (there are a dozen of them here!), but not for this one.  Fourth, in the baptismal record of one of their sons, Jean-Charles, fils, called Juan Carlos, dated 24 May 1791, in BRDR, 2:114 (ASC-5, 54), the boy's godfather was Pierre LEBLANC, who may have been the child's maternal grandfather. This is pretty tenuous stuff, but it is the best I can do for now.  (Merci, Jamie Kay.)  Arsenault, Généalogie, 2428, the LA section, would have us believe that the Jean BOUDREAUX who married Marguerite LEBLANC at Donaldsonville[sic] on 31 May 1787 was a son of Pierre BOUDROT & his first wife Cécile VESCOT of Chignecto, but this researcher has found no evidence that of the many Jean BOUDREAUXs who came to LA any of them had those parents.  See Book Three. 

Why were they not in the Lafourche valley censuses of 1788 & 1791?

46.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls him Jean-Constant [BOUDROT], & lists him with his parents & 2 sisters; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls him Jean-Constant, son [Jean Bte BOUDREAU's] fils, age 6, on the embarkation list, Juan Constance, su [Juan Bautista BAUDREAU's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Jean-Contant BOUDROT, his [Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT's] son, age 6, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 22nd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 2 sisters; BRDR, 2:114, 378 (ASM-2, 52), his marriage record, calls him Juan Constancio BOUDRAUX, calls his wife Ursual HENNRY, gives his & her parents' names, says all parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to his marriage were François AUCOIN & Josef BOURQUE. 

He & sister Marguerite were married on the same day at the same place, his sister to an AUCOIN.

47.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Étienne BOUDROT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 74-75; BRDR, 2:114, 358 (ASM-2, 46), his marriage record, calls him Juan Estevan BOUDRAUX, calls his wife Élisabeth HÉBERT, gives his & her parents' names, says all parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Étienne BOUDRAU & Ambrosio HÉBERT. 

48.  Wall of Names, 12 (pl. 1R), calls him Joseph BOUDROT, & lists him singly; BRDR, 3:162, 22 (ASC-2, 135), perhaps his marriage record, calls him Joseph BOUDREAU, "nat. Philadelphia," calls his wife Rosalie BABIN, "wid. Benjamin LEBLANCE," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Grégoire LEBLANC, Firmin LANDRY, & Evan JONES, "the son."  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 161; Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 252; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 115.

If he was a native of PA & counted at Halifax with a wife in Aug 1763, he would have to have been born in the British city before Le Grand Dérangement.  Was his father Joseph a merchant?  Who was the woman & the girl in his household at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in Apr 1766?  If he was the Joseph BOUDROU at Halifax in Aug 1763 with only a wife, the girl in his household at Cabanocé must have been a daughter who was still in her infancy when he & his wife reached LA in 1765, or the girl may have been born in the colony.  One wonders what were their names.  He is listed singly on the Wall of Names because the census taker at Cabanocé in Apr 1766 recorded the names of only heads of household, & this Joseph BOUDREAUX appears nowhere else.  Where was he & his family in Sep 1769, when the Spanish authorities took another census at Cabanocé?

His marriage, or remarriage, to Rosalie BABIN in 1806 is pure speculation based on the process of elimination, hence the qualifying language & the question marks.  

49.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Joseph BOUDRAU fils a la femme [of Honnoré COMMAU], & lists him with his stepfather, mother, & a brother; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2430, the LA section, calls him Joseph BOUDREAUX, does not give his birth year or parents' names, says he married Anne TRAHAN at Donaldsonville on 22 Feb 1786, but does not give her parents' names or mention any children; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 104-05, Family No. 132, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Joseph-Marie BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says he was godson of Joseph BOUDROT & Anne BOUDROT, & that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 52-53, calls him Joseph BOUDRAU, fils à la femme [of Honnoré COMMAU], marin, age 17, on the embarkation list, & Joseph BOUDROT, [Honoré COMEAUX's] wife's son, sailor, age 17, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 45th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his stepfather, mother, & a brother; BRDR, 2:112, 703 (ASC-1, 167 & 168), probably his marriage record, calls him Josef BUDREAU, "an Acadian," calls his wife Ana TRAHAN, "an Acadian," & does not give any parents' names or the witnesses to his marriage.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 29, 66, 104, 160; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 495.

His parents are in Robichaux's study of the Acadians in Poitou, so he & his brother Charles probably were part of the Acadian settlement there in the early 1770s.  See Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 17, Family No. 33.  

His marriage to Anne/Isabelle TRAHAN, thanks to the negligence of the priest at Ascension in 1786, is only an educated guess.  What was his wife's full name, Anne-Isabelle or Isabelle-Anne?  It is she who links him to the Lafourche valley censuses of 1795 & 1797, cited here.  Was she the Anne of Morlaix, France, daughter of Joachim-Hyacinthe TRAHAN & his second wife Marie-Madeleine DUHON, who also came to LA aboard Le St.-Rémi?  

50.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls him Joseph BOUDROT, & lists him with his wife, 4 children, & a minor child; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2430, the LA section, calls him Joseph BOUDREAUX, does not give his birth year or parents' names, says he married Marguerite RICHARD but gives no date or place nor her parents' names, lists only son Simon, born in 1786 but gives no birthplace, & says they settled at Donaldsonville; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 108-09, Family No. 138, calls him Joseph BOUDROT, says he was born in c1742 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, says his wife was born in c1743 but gives no birthplace, mentions her & her father's dit, Sapin, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Marie-Marthe, born & baptized 26 May 1764, St.-Servan, goddaughter of Michel BOUDROT & Marie SAPIN, son Francois, born & baptized 6 Jun 1766, St.-Servan, godson of Anselme BOUDROT & Anne SAPIN, died 2 Jul 1766, buried next day, St.-Servan, son Joseph-Marie, born & baptized 30 Jun 1766, St.-Servan, godson of Francois BOUDROT & Marguerite BOUDROT, died age 7 mos. 15 Feb 1767, buried next day, St.-Servan, son Jean-Charles, born & baptized 11 Nov 1767, St.-Servan, godson of Francois LEJEUNE & Marie RICHARD, unnamed daughter, buried 2 Feb 1771, St.-Servan, unnamed child, born & died 11 Jun 1772, Village du Pré, buried 12 Jun 1772, Plouër, & son Pierre-Jean-Joseph-Marie, born 14 Aug 1773, baptized next day, Plouër, says he, his brother Michel & his sister Marguerite "disembarked at St.-Malo from England on May 23, 1763 from the ship, La Dorothée, & that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Chatellerault, 17, Family No. 34, calls him Joseph BOUDROT, says he was born in c1742 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, says his wife was born in c1743 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal record of daughter Anne-Pélagie, baptized 2 Dec 1774, Monthoiron, goddaughter of Jean-Baptiste RICHARD & Marie-Marthe BOUDROT (her sister), & details the family's participation in the Leigne-les-bois settlement in Poitou in the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 23-24, Family No. 43, calls him Joseph BOUDROT, says he was born in c1740 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, says he was a seaman, that his wife was born in c1741 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, says they married in c1762 but gives no place of marriage, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Jean-Joseph, baptized 23 Jul 1776, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, daughter Henriette-Josèphe, baptized 14 Apr 1780, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, died age 2 & buried 12 Dec 1782, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, daughter Sophie, baptized 12 Apr 1782, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & son Jean-Marie, died age 4 1/2[sic]years, buried 17 Dec 1782, 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, 68-69, calls him Jh BOUDREAU, charpentier, age 40, on the embarkation list, Josef BOUDREAU, on the debarkation list, & Joseph BOUDROT, carpenter, age 40, on the complete listing, says he was in the 14th Family aboard L'Amitié with his wife, 4 children, & a minor child, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names, says they married in 1763 but gives no place of marriage, says daughter Marie-Marthe was born in 1764 but gives no birthplace, lists the implements the Spanish gave him after he reached LA, & says he owned 6 arpents of land but does not say when or where.  

He & his wife had at least 11 children in France & buried 7 of them!

51.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Joseph BOUDROT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2430, the LA section, calls him Joseph BOUDREAUX, does not give his birth year or parents' names, says he was widower of Marie PITRE when he married Marguerite PITRE at Donaldsonville on 4 Oct 1787, but does not give her parents' names or mention any children; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 74-75; NOAR, 4:37, 251 (SLC, M5, 45), the record of his first marriage, calls him Josef BOUDREAU, "native of Pledian in the Kingdom of France," calls his wife Maria PITRE, "native of Pledian in France," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Vicente LLORCA & Josef MARTINEZ; NOAR, 4:37, 250 (SLC, M5, 54), the record of his second marriage, dated (* - Oct.) 7, 1787, calls him ____ BOUDREAU, calls his wife (*) PITRE, & gives no parents' names or any witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 2:113, 594 (ASC-2, 11), another record of his second marriage, also dated 4 Oct 1787, calls him Joseph BOUDREAU, "widower of Maria PITRE," calls his wife Margarita PITRE, gives no parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Étienne BOUDRAU & Marirose LEBLANC.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 29.  

So did he marry his second wife at New Orleans or Ascension?  Arsenault, cited above, says they married at Donaldsonville, which was Ascenion.  The Ascension priest who recorded the marriage did not give his second wife's parents' names.  However, the baptismal record of son Simon-Valentin, dated 27 May 1798, in BRDR, 2:118 (ASM-1, 109), provides this information.  Why did the census taker at Ascension in Jan 1788 call his wife Marie when his first wife, who was named Marie, had died in Nov 1786?  Was Joseph's second wife's name Marie-Marguerite or Marguerite-Marie?  All other records call her Marguerite or Marguerite-Ludivine.

52.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls him Joseph [BOUDROT], & lists him with his parents, 3 siblings, & a minor; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 23-24, Family No. 43, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Joseph [BOUDROT], gives his parents' names, & 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, 68-69, calls him Joseph, son [Jh BOUDREAU's] fils, age 9, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Joseph BOUDROT, his [Joseph BOUDROT's] son, age 9, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 14th Family aboard L'Amitié with his parents, 3 siblings, & a minor; BRDR, 2:113, 255, 3:122, 286 (ASM-2, 85), his marriage record, calls him Josef BOUDRAUX "of St.-Martin Parish, Diocese of Nantes, France," calls his wife Eulalia DUGAT "of New Orleans," gives his & her parents' names, calls his mother Magdalena FORET in vol. 2, corrects it to Margarita RICHARD in vol. 3, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Josef BOUDRAUX & Ambroise HÉBERT; BRDR, 4:73 (ASM-3, 147), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph BOUDREAUX, "age not given," gives his parents' names but mentions no wife. 

His wife was born aboard La Bergère, one of the 7 ships from France in 1785, & was baptized in New Orleans, but her family lived in Assumption at the time of the marriage.  

53.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Joseph BOUDRO; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 92-93. 

<perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Supply.htm>, Family No. 26, calls him Joseph BOUDEROT, 18 mois, fils [of Victor BOUDEROT, de l'Isle Saint Jean], but says nothing of his dying at sea like his 4-year-old sister Madeleine.  However, Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 117, Family No. 150, insists that Joseph, son of Victor BOUDROT & his first wife Catherine-Josèphe HÉBERT, born c1758, as well as his sister Madeleine, "died at sea during the crossing to France in 1759."  Yet the passenger roll of La Ville d'Archangel calls him Joseph BOUDROT, "child of hs [Victor BOUDROT's] first wife," age 27, which gives him an estimated birth year of ... c1758, so this is him. 

Did he ever marry?  If not, why not?

54.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Joseph BOUDRO; BRDR, 2:113, 720 (ASM-2, 88), the record of his first marriage, calls him Joseph BOUDRAUX "of Pleouard, Diocese of St.-Malo, France," calls his wife Maria Juana VILLARDIN "of Morlaix, France," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriages were Juan BOUDROT & Ambroise HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-C:86, 460-61 (SM Ch.: v.7 #66), the record of his second marriage, calls him Joseph Alain BOUDROT, "native of St.-Malo in France," calls his wife Rosalie LANDRY, "native of this parish, widow of Henry Léonard RANSONET, gives his & her parents' names, calls him a major son & his wife a major daughter, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Josaphat BROUSSARD, fils, Charles LANDRY, & Gilbert AMY. 

His full name was Joseph-Alain.  The baptismal records of 3 of his children, dated 18 Sep 1806, 27 Oct 1811, & 12 Feb 1816, call him Joseph Alin, Josef Alino, & Jose Alino, & the burial record of an unnamed daughter, dated 15 Jul 1819, calls him Joseph Alain.  See BRDR, 3:117, 118, 119, 123 (ASC-5, 264; ASM-6, 236; ASM-3, 136; ASM-8, 14).  And then there was the record of his second marriage, cited above.

When did he move to the Teche valley?

55.  Wall of Names, 47, calls him Joseph BOUDROT.  Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 43, the baptismal record of Joseph-Simon BOUDREAUX, does not give his parents' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 55, 83, 116, 160.

He evidently was the Joseph, son of Félix BOUDREAUX & his first wife Marie-Josèphe LE BLANC, who was born on 6 Jun 1764, Morlaix, & was in family no. 50 at Borderun, Sauzon, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in 1765?  See Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 555. 

The baptismal record of son Joseph, fils, dated 24 Apr 1794, in BRDR, 112-13 (ASM-1, 27), calls him Simon.  The baptismal record of son Hippolyte Alphonse, dated 15 Oct 1810, & the marriage record of son Joseph, dated 13 Apr 1818, in BRDR, 3:121, 122 (ASM-6, 191; ASM-7, 18), call him Joseph Simon.  The marriage records of 3 of his daughters, dated 18 Jun 1809, 22 Nov 1813, & 14 Jul 1818, in BRDR, 3:123, 126, 129 (ASC-2, 193; ASM-2, 216; ASM-7, 25), call him Joseph Félix & Joseph Simon.  So perhaps his full name was Joseph-Félix-Simon.  

The baptismal record of son Joseph-Alexandre, dated 9 Jul 1798, in NOAR, 6:33 (SLC, B14, 65), calls him Joseph [BOUDROT], native of Morles (Morlaix, dept. of Finistre?), calls his wife Maria Juliana BROSSIER, native of Nantes in France, says they were residents of Bayou La Fourche at the time of their sons baptism in New Orleans, that his parents were Félix BOUDROT & Ynes BOUDROT, & her parents were Pedro BROSSIER & Juana DELINOT.  

I have not found his marriage record, but there are more clues to his wife's full name other than the census records of the 1790s.  Son Juan Josef's (Jean-Joseph's) baptismal record, dated 14 Jun 1788, in BRDR, 2:114 (SJA-3, 16), calls her Julina BROSIER.  Daughter Maria Lucia's (Marie-Luce's) baptismal record, dated 21 Jun 1790, in BRDR, 116 (ASC-5, 44), calls her Julia BROSSIE.  Son Joseph's baptismal record, dated 24 Apr 1794, in BRDR, 2:112-13 (ASM-1, 27), calls her Juliana Maria BRESSIER.  

56.  Wall of Names, 12, calls him Joseph-Baptiste BOUDROT. 

I have found him in no other source, unless he was the Joseph-Marie, son of Étienne BOUDREAUX, who married Marie-Charlotte, daughter of Claude PITRE, at New Orleans in Jan 1786 & remarried to Marguerite-Ludivine, daughter of Anselme PITRE, at Ascension in Oct 1787.  See above.  If so, this would be a double listing, for him & his first wife.  This would make him the same ____ BOUDREAU who married _____ PITRE at New Orleans on 7 Oct 1787.  See NOAR, 4:37, 250 (SLC, M5, 54), which lists only the bride & groom's surnames, gives no parents' names, & says the witnesses to the marriage were Vicente LLORCA, Antoino X(IMENEZ), & Josef MARTINE(Z). 

These marriages seem to place him among the Acadians who came to LA from France in 1785, but which of the 7 Ships did he take? 

57.  Not in Wall of Names.  Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 105-06, Family No. 133, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Joseph-Marie BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says he was godson of Germain BOUDROT & Marie LANDRY, & that his family resided at Plouër from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 22-23, Family No. 42, calls him Joseph-Marie [BOUDROT], & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as their voyage to LA in 1785 but does not include him with the family on St.-Rémi, hence his failure to appear in Wall of Names; Winzerling, Acadian Odyssey, 193n117, calls him Joseph BOUDREAU, " her [María BOUDREAU's] brother," & says he, Marie, & her infant son Juan María [AVARART] sailed to LA aboard Le St.-Rémi, were considered separated Acadians, & would join their father, Juan Carlos BOUDREAU; ; BRDR, 2:113 (ASC-2, 39), his marriage record, calls him Joseph Maria BOUDREAUX, calls his wife Maria Isabel DOIRON[sic], does not give any parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Yvon CROCHET & Alexo LEJEUNE.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501.

His wife was 14 when they married!

The baptismal record of daughter Margarita Eugenia, dated 21 Aug 1796, Assumption, in BRDR, 2:115 (ASM-1, 73), calls him Josef Maria [BOUDREAUX], his wife Maria Isabel DAROIS, &, most importantly, gives his & his wife's parents' names, calling his mother Ana TRAHAN.  

If he had a daughter born in Aug 1796, why did a Spanish official list his wife with her parents, not him, in the Lafourche census of Dec 1795?  Was the daughter born posthumously?  See Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 66.

58.  Wall of Names, 40 (pl. 10L), calls him Joseph [BOUDROT], & lists him with his widowed mother & 4 siblings; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2426, 2428, the LA section, gives his parents' names, says he was born in 1763 but gives no birthplace, says he married Françoise SEMER in c1785 but gives no place of marriage, that his children were Antoine, born in 1786, & Louis in 1789 but gives no birthplaces, & says he settled at St. Martinville; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 90-91, Family No. 117, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Joseph BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, & says his family lived at Trigavou from 1759-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73, calls him Jh, son [Veuve BOUDREAUX's] fils, charpentier, age 19, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Joseph BOUDROT, her [Widow BOUDROT (Brigitte PART)'s] son, carpenter, age 19, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 28th Family aboard L'Amitié with his mother & 4 siblings.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 45; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 505.

That he may have been the Joseph BOUDREAUT, age 22, listed singly in the Valenzuéla census of Jan 1788 is based on the closeness of their birth dates--Feb 1765 & c1766. 

Was he the Joseph BOUDREAUX who married Marie-Jeanne LANGLINAIS at Ascension in Feb 1791?  BRDR, 2:113, 451 (ASC-2, 37), perhaps his marriage record, calls the groom Joseph BOUDRO, calls the bride Maria Juana LANGLINETE, does not give any parents' names, & says the witnesses to the marriage were Jacques Caliens DENTREMONT, Carlos BOUDREAU [perhaps his brother], & Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAU.  We can thank the priest at Ascension in 1791, again, for the question mark. 

60.  Wall of Names, 36 (PL. 9l), calls her Magdeleine BOUDRAU, & lists her with her husband & 3 children; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 22, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, she lost her mother & was the only 1 of her parents' 5 children to survive the terrible crossing, detailed in the footnote to her father's profile; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 389-90, Family No. 478, calls her Madeleine-Josèphe BOUDROT, says he was born c1744at l'Assomption, which was Pigiguit, gives his parents' names, details her marriage, including her husband's parents' names, & includes the birth/baptismal records of son Isidore-Francois GUILLOT, born & baptized 8 Sep 1767, Trigavou, godson of Olivier BOUDROT & Marie-Josèphe GUILLOT, son Jean-Michel GUILLOT, born & baptized 29 Sep 1769, Trigavou, godson of Charles BRAUD & Victoire HÉBERT, son Simon-Francois GUILLOT, born & baptized 18 Feb 1772, Trigavou, godson of Jean LYONAIS & Jeanne LEMOINE, & daughter Élisabeth-Madeleine GUILLOT, born & baptized 26 Feb 1774, Trigavou, goddaughter of Tranquille PITRE & Marguerite BRAUD; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls her Magdeleine BOUDRAU, sa [Charles-Olivier GUILLOT's] femee, age 40, on the embarkation list, & Magdelaine BOUDROT, his [Charles-Olivier GUILLOT's] wife, age 40, on the complete listing, says she was in the 26th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her husband & 3 children, details her marriage, including her husband's parents' names but not her parents' names nor does it include place of marriage, & says son Jean-Michel [GUILLOT] was born in 1769 & son Simon-Francoise [GUILLOT] in 1772 but gives no birthplaces.  See also De La Roque, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:122. 

Her middle name also can be found in son Jean-Michel GUILLOT's marriage record in BRDR, 2:348 (ASC-2, 26).  

61.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls her Margueritte BOUDROT, & lists her with her husband & 7 children; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Margueritte BOUDREAU, sa [Charles LANDRY's] femme, age 48, on the embarkation list, Margarita BOUDDEAUT, su [Charles LANDRY's] muger, on the debarkation list, & Marguerite BOUDROT, his [Charles LANDRY's] wife, age 48, on the complete listing, says that she was in the 4th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her husband & 7 children, & details her marriage, including the names of her parents; BRDR, 4:326 (ASC-4, 190), probably her death/burial record, calls her Marguerite, "age 93, wid. of Charles LANDRY," does not give her parents' names, & includes her in the LANDRY section.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:102. 

Why is she called Mariana in her son Firmin LANDRY's marriage record in BRDR, 2:424 (SGA-14, 15)?  It may be an inadvertent repeat of the bride's name, Mariana BABIN.

62.  Wall of Names, 41 (pl. 10R), calls her Margueritte BOUDROT veuve Binjamin PITRE.  See also Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 83-84; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 142-43; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 659-61. 

Following Robichaux, she evidently was the Marguerite BOUDROT, age 10, orphan, who was counted with the family of Zacharie BOUDROT at La Traverse, Île St.-Jean, in Aug 1752?  See De La Roque, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:162.  Marguerite's father, Jean-Bapiste, called Jean, BOUDROT, was Zacharie's oldest brother. 

Her husband died at St.-Pierre de Rezé, Nantes, France, in Sep 1782.  He was 16 years older than she was.  See Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 83.  

63.  Wall of Names, 40, calls her Margueritte BOUDROT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 74-75.

What happened to her in LA?

64.  Wall of Names, 40 (pl. 10L), calls her Margueritte [BOUDROT], & lists her with her widowed mother & 4 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 90-91, Family No. 117, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marguerite-Josèphe BOUDROT, gives her parents' names, calls her godparents Alexis BRAUD & Anne VINCENT, & says her family resided at Trigavou from 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 17, Family No. 31, calls her Marguerite-Josèphe [BOUDROT], gives her parents' names, & details her 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, 72-73, calls her Margueritte, sa [Veuve BOUDREAUX's] fille, age 16, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marguerite BOUDROT, her [Widow BOUDROT (Brigitte PART)'s] daughter, age 16, on the complete listings, says she was in the 28th Family aboard L'Amitié with her mother & 4 siblings, &, calling her Marguerite-Josèph, says she was born 17 Apr 1768 but gives no birthplace.  

What happened to her in LA?  Did she marry?

65.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls her Margueritte [BOUDROT], & lists her with her parents & 2 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls her Margueritte, sa [Jean Bte BOUDREAU's] fille, age 2, on the embarkation list, Margarita, su [Juan Bautista BAUDREAU's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Marguerite BOUDROT, his [Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT's] daughter, age 2, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 22nd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents & 2 siblings; BRDR, 2:35, 115 (ASM-2, 52), the record of her first marriage, calls her Margarita Maria BOUDRAUX, calls her husband Guillermo AUCOIN, gives her & his parents' names, says all parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were François AUCOIN [probably his brother] & Josef BOURQUE; BRDR, 3:123, the record of her second marriage; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:12, 64 (Thib.Ch.: v.3, p.99), the record of her third marriage, calls her Marguerite BOUDRAUX, calls her husband Hyacinthe AUCOIN, gives her & his parents' names but not their previous spouses' names, & gives no witnesses to her marriage; BRDR, 8:88 (SPH-2, 78), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Marguerite BOUDREAUX, "age 72 years, wife of Yacinth AUCOIN," but does not give her parents' names.   

Her first marriage & that of her brother Constant were on the same day at the same place in 1800.  Her third husband was her first husband's younger brother. 

66.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9L), calls her Marguerite [BOUDRAU], & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 22-23, Family No. 42, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marguerite-Reiné BOUDROT, does not give her godparents' names, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls her Marguerite, sa [Jean-Charles BOUDRAU's] fille, age 3, on the embarkation list, & Marguerite GUÉDRY[sic], his [Jean-Charles BOUDROT's] daughter, age 3, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 18th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her parents & & 3 half-siblings; BRDR, 2:115, 712 (ASM-2, 43), her marriage record, calls her Margarita BOUDRAUX, calls her husband Juan Bautista USSÉE "of St.-Malo & widower of Francisca HENNRY," gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Armand FREMIN & François BABIN.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 29, 176. 

67.  Wall of Names, 24, calls her Marie BOUDROT orpheline; BRDR, 2:117, 324 (PCP-2, pt. 2, 184; PCP-4, 128), her marriage record, calls her Marie BOUDROS, calls her husband Amant HÉBERT, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph RICHARD, Joseph MELANÇON, & Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC; BRDR, 6:91 (SGA-8, 295), her death/burial record, called her Marie BOUDREAUX, "age 95 yrs., widow of Amant HÉBERT," gives the specific time of her death, does not give her parents' names but says "She was born in Maryland of Acadian parents caught in the expulsion from Acadia of the French by the English."  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150, 155.

Her estimated birth year is taken from the earliest records in which she is found, not from her burial record, which reveals her birthplace.  The baptismal record of daughter Iréné HÉBERT, dated 15 Mar 1801, in BRDR, 2:361 (SGA-11, 104, #524), calls her "Maria BUDRAU of New England."  Was this the St.-Gabriel priest's generic term for anyone born in what became the United States, formerly colonies of England?  MD of course was such a colony.  One wonders how soon after her birth did she become an orphan.  There were 2 Marie BOUDROT/BOUDREAU orphans in MD in Jul 1763.  One wonders which one was this Marie. 

Why was her marriage recorded by a Pointe Coupée priest when there had been a church at St.-Gabriel since 1772?  Did a Pointe Coupée priest do the honors at St.-Gabriel & record the marriage in his parish register?  Perhaps Amand & Marie were living on the west bank of the river in present-day western Iberville Parish in 1776, & a Pointe Coupée priest from upriver was the closest one they could find.  Note that his mother also was a MELANÇON, so they were cousins.  He, too, came to LA in 1767.  If she was the Maria BODRO, orphan, with the Prut. François HÉBERT family at Georgetown/Fredericktown, MD, in 1763, which is very likely, then she would have known Amand from childhood; he was only a year older than she was, & he, too, was at Georgetown/Fredericktown in 1763.  The families, in fact, lived "next door" to one another.  Moreover, Prut. François HÉBERT's wife was a MELANÇON, so he may have been Marie's uncle by marriage.  One wonders, then, if Amand's mother was Marie's mother's sister. 

She died in her early 90s, surrounded by many grandchildren & perhaps even great-grandchildren.  One of her grandsons, Paul Octave HÉBERT, served as governor of LA & as a Confederate general in the War Between the States.  Another of her grandsons, Louis HÉBERT, also served as a Confederate general. 

68.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Marie BOUDROT, & lists her with her husband & 3 children; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 22-23, calls her Marie BOUDREAU, sa [Joseph TRAHAN's] femme, age 57, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation lists, calls her Marie BOUDROT, his [Joseph TRAHAN's] wife, age 57, on the complete listing, says she was in the 52nd Family aboard La Bergère with her husband & 3 children, details her marriage but does not include her or her husband's parents' names or place of marriage, & says son Anselme TRAHAN was born in 1766 but gives no birthplace.  

69.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls her Marie BOUDRAU, & lists her with her husband & 2 children; White, DGFA-1, 452, her husband's profile, gives her middle name, her & his parents' names, details their marriage & their sojourn in England, France, & LA; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 243-44, Family No. 297, calls her Marie BOUDROT, says she was born in c1739 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, details her marriage, says she married in c1762 in England but gives no specific place there, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Madeleine DAIGLE, born c1763, England, died age about 4 years 14 Feb 1767, Village de Lisnais, buried 15 Feb 1767, Plouër, son Joseph-Baptiste DAIGLE, born 8 Oct 1765, Village de Lysnais, baptized same day, Plouër, godson of Joseph DAIGLE & Marguerite DAIGLE, died age 2 years 7 Mar 1767, Village Lisnais, buried 8 Mar 1767, Plouër, son Joseph-Marie DAIGLE, born & baptized 12 Jul 1767, Plouër, godson of Étienne DUPUIS & Anne LEBERT, died age 4 1/2 years 24 Dec 1771, Lisnais, buried 25 Dec 1771, Plouër, daughter Anne-Marie DAIGLE, born 15 Sep 1769, baptized next day, Plouër, goddaughter of Joseph DUPUIS & Anne DUGAST, unnamed child DAIGLE, born 28 Dec 1771, Lisnais, baptized same day, Plouër, died same day, Lisnais, buried same day, Plouër, & son Joseph-Marc DAIGLE, born & baptized 4 Jan 1773, Plouër, godson of Joseph COUPEAUX & Marguerite DUPUIS, says she, her husband, & daughter Madeleine "disembarked at St. Malo from England on May 22, 1763 from the ship, L'Ambition," & that the family resided at Plouër from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Chatellerault, 29, Family No. 59, calls her Marie BOUDROT, says she was born in c1739 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, details her marriage, says she married in England in c1762 but gives no specific place there, includes the birth/baptismal record of son Jean-Pierre DAIGLE, baptized 29 Jul 1775, St.-Jean-Baptiste, Châtellerault, & details the family's participation in the Leigne-les-bois settlement in Poitou in the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 46, calls her Marie BOUDROT, says she was born in c1739 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, details her marriage, says she married in c1768 but gives no place of marriage, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Jean[-Pierre] DAIGLE, died age 3 years & buried 1 May 1779, St.-Similien, Nantes, & son Jean-Augustin DAIGLE, baptized 1 Jul 1781, St.-Similien, Nantes, died 30 Apr 1784, probably St.-Similien, Nantes, & 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., Acadians Families in Exile 1785, 54-55, calls her Marie BOUDRAU, sa [Jean-Bte DAIGLE's] feme, age 50, on the embarkation list, & Marie BOUDROT, his [Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE's] wife, age 50, on the complete listing, says she was in the 49th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her husband & 2 children, details her marriage, says they were married in c1762 but gives no place of marriage, does not include his or his wife's parents' names, & says daughter Anne [DAIGLE] was born in 1769 but gives no birthplace.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 501; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 25.

Robichaux's studies of the Acadians in France document 8 children for her & her husband, only 2 of whom survived childhood & went with them to LA.  Doubtlessly the Christmas of 1771 at Plouër--when they buried 2 children in 3 days--haunted her & her husband for the rest of their days.  

There is no debarkation list for Le St.-Rémi, so we don't know if she & her husband even survived the crossing from France to LA.

70.  Not in Wall of Names.  Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 105-06, Family No. 133, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie BOUDROT, gives her parents' names, does not give her godparents' names, says her family "disembarked at St.-Malo from England on May 23, 1763 from the ship La Dorothée," & that they lived at Plouër from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 23, Family No. 42, also her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie BOUDROT, details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s, & details her marriage, calling her husband Jean-François HAVARD; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 83, Family No. 157, calls her Marie BOUDROT, says she was born & baptized 11 Sep 1761, Bristol England, gives her parents' names, details her marriage, calls her husband Jean-François HAVARD, says he was born & baptized 14 Dec 1760 at St.-Donatien, Nantes, son of Jean HAVARD & Jeanne BERNARDEAU, provides the birth/baptismal record of son Jean-Marie HAVARD, born 2 Feb 1785 "on the rué du Martay & baptized 3 Feb 1785, St.-Similien, Nantes, & says that her husband was listed on the debarkation list of L'Amitié, & "In Louisiana, the name became NAVARRE, as it remains today"; Winzerling, Acadian Odyssey, 193n117, calls her María BOUDREAU (wife of the absent Francisco AVARAT), calls her a separated Acadian, says she was with Juan María [AVARAT], "her infant," & Joseph BOUDREAU, "her brother," "who were to join her father, Juan Carlos BOUDREAU," but does not name her mother.

Wall of Names, 42 (pl. 11L), calls her husband Jean-François AVARET, & includes him on the passenger list of L'Amitié.  How ironic that she, a true Acadian, is not on the Wall of Names in St. Martinville, but her husband, who was not an Acadian, is on the Wall of Names. 

Did her husband rejoin her in LA?  Was she the Marie BOUDREAUX who married (or remarried to) Frenchman Joseph FORGERON at Ascension on 24 Sep 1787?  See BRDR, 2:117, 296 (ASC-2, 10), which gives no parents' names or mentions any previous spouses.  Joseph FORGERON, called "widower of Maria BOUDRO of Virginia," remarried to Rosalie, daughter of Acadian Joseph ROGER, at Ascension in Sep 1797.  See BRDR, 2:296 (ASC-2, 75). 

71.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie BOUDRO; BRDR, 2:34, 116 (ASM-2, 50), her marriage record, calls her Maria BOUDRAUX, calls her husband Francisco AUCOIN, give her & his parents' names, says all parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Mathurino HÉBERT & Ambroise HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 3:83 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #931), her death/burial record, calls her Marie BOUDREAUX m. François AUCOIN, gives her parents' names, & says she died "at age 73 yrs." 

Was she a widow when she died?  She was one of the last Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

72.  Wall of Names, 47, calls her Marie BOUDROT veuve Charles TÉRRIOT.  See also Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 155; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 743-44, Family No. 869; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 55, 83.

Because of the date of her marriage, found in Robichaux's study of the Acadians in France, her estimated birth year is from that study, not the passenger list for La Caroline or the 2 Lafourche censuses in which she is found. 

Why did she travel on a different, later ship, than her married daughters, Osite-Perpétué & Marie-Madeleine THÉRIOT, who crossed to LA aboard Le St.-Rémi?  Where did she settle when she got to LA?  St.-Jacques?  Ascension?  I will assume the latter place, where most of her fellow passengers chose to reside, including her daughters & sons-in-law.  A Joseph THERIOT who crossed on La Caroline (he was married, but his wife had crossed on an earlier ship) may have been her son. 

73.  Wall of Names, 46 (pl. 12R), calls her Marie BOUDROT, & lists her with her husband, 2 sons, & a sister; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 66-67, calls her Marie BOUDREAU, sa [Christophe DELAUNE's] femme, age 30, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie BOUDROT, his [Christophe DELAUNE's] wife, age 30, on the complete listing, says she was in the 8th Family aboard L'Amitié with her husband, 2 sons, & a sister, &, calling her Marie BOUDROT, details her marriage, including her & her husband's parents' names, calls her mother Cécile VECO, says Marie & Christophe were married in 1774 but gives no place of marriage, & says son Jean-Baptiste DELAUNE was born in 1775 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:116, 332 (SJA-2, 21), likely the record of her second marriage, calls her Maria BOUDRAUX, calls her husband Guillermo GOYOR, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of Acadia" & his "of Normandy," says nothing of a first husband, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Pedro CANTEN, Maria ÉBER, & Esteban BORSERON [probably BERGERON]; BRDR, 3:124 (ASM-3, 108), likely her burial record, calls her Marie BOUDREAUX, "age 67 yrs. of Acadia, res. Iberville parish, married to Pedro GOYER," but does not give her parents' names. 

White, DGFA-1, 205, profile for her father's family, names his 2 wives & details his marriages.  Marie's parents married in c1749, probably on Île St.-Jean.  They were counted at Tracadie on the north coast of Île St.-Jean, in Aug 1752 with 2 children--Félix age 2 mos., & Marie-Josèphe, age 19 mos., likely her.  See De La Roque, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:147.  Her half-sister Célestine, called Céleste, was not born until c1765, 7 years after her father remarried to Madeleine BOURG.  See note 14, above. 

As the debarkation list of L'Amitié & the embarkation/debarkation lists of La Caroline reveal, she & her family sailed to LA on the later ship, not the earlier one.  

74.  Wall of Names, 47, calls her Marie BOUDROT; BRDR, 2:116, 165 (ASC-2, 15), her marriage record, calls her Maria BOUDREAU, "an Acadian," calls her husband Franco BRUNET, "an Acadian," gives no parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Manuel ORDONEZ & Nicolas DOUBLEIN.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 64, 102, 122, 166.

Church records in BRDR, 2:165, say François BRUNER or BRUNET came from Canada.  Some records also say that his parents were Acadians, but I have not found this surname in Arsenault, Généalogie, or White, DGFA-1.  Note the remarkable inconsistency of this couples' children's names in the Ascension/Lafourche valley censuses.  

75.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls her Marie BOUDROT petit fille [of Jean-Baptiste DUGAST], & lists her with her grandfather, step grandmother, & an aunt; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 24, Family No. 44, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Adélaïde BOUDROT, gives her parents' names, says her father was born in c1759, no place given, son of Pierre BOUDROT & Madeleine BOURG, & was a seaman, that her mother was born in c1751, no place given, daughter of Jean-Baptiste DUGAST & his first wife Marguerite BENOIT, that her parents married on 25 Nov 1777 at St.-Similien, Nantes, & gives the baptismal record of brother Mathurin, baptized 13 Aug 1779, St.-Martin, Chantenay (who, like her parents, did not emigrate to LA); Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls her Marie BOUDREAU, petit fille au dit [Jean Bte DUGAST], age 5, on the embarkation list, Maria BOUDREAUD, su [Juan Bautista DUGAT's] nieta, on the debarkation list, & Marie BOUDROT, his [Jean-Baptiste DUGAST's] granddaughter, age 5, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 16th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her grandfather, step grandmother, & an aunt; BRDR, 2:116, 178 (ASM-2, 18), the record of her first marriage, calls her Maria BOUDRAUX, calls her husband Eustachio CARRET, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "both decd. of Nantes, France," that his parents were "of St.-Malo, France," that his father was deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to her  marriage were Ambrosio DUGAT & Ambrosio HÉBERT; BRDR, 3:107, 124 (ASM-2, 212), the record of her second marriage, calls her Maria Adélaïdes BOUDRAUX "of Nantes, wid. of Eustachio CARRET," calls her husband Juan Bautista BLANCHARD "of Nantes, widower of Maria AUCOIN," gives her & his parents' names, says both her parents & his father were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Simon DUGAT, Josef AUCOIN, & Bautista LANDRY.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 497; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 131.

Judging by her orphan status in the French report of 1784 at Nantes, her parents probably died in the early 1780s.  See Voorhies, J., p. 497.

76.  Wall of Names, 41, calls her Marie BOUDROT; BRDR, 3:125, 698 (ASC-2, 106), her marriage record, calls her Marianne BOUDREAUX, "of Nantes, France," calls her husband Jean Baptiste PITRE, "nat. Nantes, France," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Louis Anselme LANDRY, Pierre MONTEL, & Jean Baptiste ROGER; BRDR, 9:76 (ASM-10, 172), her death/burial record, calls her Marie BOUDREAUX, "age 80 and some years, wife of Jean PITRE," but does not give her parents' names.   

Her father died at Ascension in Oct 1786.  Her mother probably died soon after, & she was taken in by her uncle & aunt; Anselme LANDRY's wife, Agathe BARRILLEAUX, was her mother's older sister.

77.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls her Marie-Félicité [BOUDROT], & lists her with her parents & 2 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 6-7, calls her Marie-Félicité, sa [Jean Bte BOUDREAU's] fille, age 8, on the embarkation list, Maria Felicidad, su [Juan Bautista BAUDREAU's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Marie-Félicité BOUDROT, his [Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT's] daughter, age 8, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 22nd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents & 2 siblings; BRDR, 2:117, 377 (SJO-3, 4), her marriage record, calls her Marie-Félicité BOUDRAUT, calls her husband Juan Bautista HENRY, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of Parish of San Similien in France," that his parents were "of Parish of San Servand in France," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Josef VAHAMONDE, Juan Maria TRAHAN, Pedro BROUSARD, & Angelela TERIOT.  

I have not found her death/burial record, but, judging by the birth dates of her children, she died probably at Assumption on upper Bayou Lafourche in c1802.  Son David-Valéry HENRY was born at Assumption in Aug 1802 & baptized there the following Mar.  See BRDR, 2:376 (ASM-1, 262).  She may have died giving birth to him.  A succession & quittance record, dated 18 Jun 1828, Terrebonne Parish courthouse, calling her Marie BOUDREAUX, "first wife of Jean Baptiste Théodore HENRY," suggests that she did.  The succession record goes on to name the heirs of Jean Baptiste Théodore, all children of their second son, Charles Magloire HENRY, so this is his succession record, not hers.  See Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:92 (Houma Ct.Hse.: OA: v.1, #100. 

78.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Madeleine BOUDROT; White, DGFA-1, 216; White, DGFA-1 English, 47.

79.  Wall of Names, 40 (pl. 10L), calls her Marie-Magdeleine [BOUDROT], & lists her with her widowed mother & 4 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 90-91, Family No. 117, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Madeleine BOUDROT, gives her parents' names, calls her godparents Ambroise GUILLOT & Anne BRAUD, & says her family resided at Trigavou from 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 17, Family No. 31, calls her Marie-Madeleine [BOUDROT], gives her parents' names, & details her 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, 72-73, calls her Marie-Magdeleine, sa [Veuve BOUDREAUX's] fille, age 20, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie-Magdelaine BOUDROT, her [Widow BOUDROT (Brigitte PART)'s] daughter, age 20, on the complete listings, & says she was in the 28th Family aboard L'Amitié with her mother & 4 siblings; BRDR, 2:109, 616 (ASC-2, 6), probably her marriage record, calls her Anne Magdalina BOUDREAU, calls her husband Francois ROSICO, "an Acadian," gives no parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Michel DUGAS & Étienne BUDRO; BRDR, 2:616 (ASC-1, 201b), probably her death/burial record, calls her "widow" RASSICOT, "an Acadian," but does not give her full name or her parents' names. 

She came to LA on the same ship as Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX, & a witness to the marriage of Anne-Madeleine BOUDREAUX & Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX was Étienne BOUDREAUX, perhaps Marie-Madeleine's younger brother.  If she was the "widow" RASSICOT who was buried at Ascension in Jan 1787, she died 2 days after her wedding!  Again, the Ascension priest leaves us guessing. 

80.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls her Marie-Marthe [BOUDROT], & lists her with her parents, 3 siblings, & a minor; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 108-09, Family No. 138, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Marthe BOUDROT, gives her parents' names, says her godparents were Michel BOUDROT & Marie SAPIN, & that her family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Chatellerault, 17, Family No. 34, calls her Marie-Marthe [BOUDROT], gives her parents' names, & details the family's participation in the Leigne-les-bois settlement in Poitou in the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 23-24, Family No. 43, calls her Marie-Marthe [BOUDROT], gives her parents' names, & 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, 68-69, calls her Marie-Marthe, sa [Jh BOUDREAU's] fille, age 20, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie-Marthe BOUDROT, his [Joseph BOUDROT's] daughter, age 20, on the complete listing, says she was in the 14th Family aboard L'Amitié with her parents, 3 siblings, & a minor, & that she was born in 1764 but gives no birthplace; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 64-65, under Lista parcial de vientitres casamientos acadianos arregalados par Navarro, 20 novembre 1785 [Partial List of 23 marriages Navarro arranged on 20 November 1785], F. Marriages celebrated 14 December 1785, calls her Maria Martha BOUDREAU/Marie-Marthe BOUDREAUX (daughter of Joseph [BOUDREAUX] & Marguerite RICHARD, says she was in the 19th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi[sic], calls her husband Juan/Jean CROCHET, & says he was in the 19th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi[sic]; BRDR, 4:74 (ASM-3, 146), her death/burial record, calls her Marie BOUDREAUX, age 56 yrs., wid. of Jean CROCHET, but does not gives her parents' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 47, 179.

Her husband also crossed to LA aboard L'Amitié, not Le St.-Rémi.  Why is their marriage not in vol. 4 of NOAR?

81.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Marie-Rose [BOUDROT], & lists her with her widowed mother & brother; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 102-03, Family No. 131; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls her Marie-Roze, sa [Marie DAIGRE, veuve BOUDREAU's] fille, age 21, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie-Rose BOUDROT, her [Marie DAIGLE, widow BOUDROT's] daughter, age 21, on the complete listing, says she was in the 61st Family aboard La Bergère with her mother & brother, & that she was born in 1764 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:117, 121 (ASC-2, 2), probably her marriage record, calls her Marie BOUDREAUX, calls her husband Fabien BOURG, does not give any parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Alexis DAIGLE, Joseph HÉBERT, & Joseph GRANGÉ.   

Thanks to the negligence of the priest at Ascension in Apr 1786, evidence of her marriage to Fabien-Joseph BOURG must be found in 3 of her children's baptismal records, dated 14 Aug 1796, 30 May 1798, & 4 May 1800, in BRDR, 2:122, 124, 127 (ASM-1, 72; ASM-1, 109, ASM-1, 157), which name the grandparents.  

Her husband also crossed to LA aboard La Bergère, so they may have known one another in France.  

82.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie-Rose BOUDRO, & calls her husband François-Pierre LE LORRE; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Supply.htm>, Family No. 26, calls her Hélène-Marie-Rose BOUDEROT, says she was 6 yrs., & shows that all of her family but 1 sister survived the crossing to St.-Malo; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 117-20, calls her Hélène-Marie-Rose BOUDROT, give her parents' names, says she was born in c1753 but gives no place, says she was counted with her family in 1752 at Grande-Anse, Île St.-Jean, details the family's deportation from Île St.-Jean to St.-Malo in 1758-59, & says her family lived at St.-Suliac from 1759-65, & at St.-Servan from 1766-72; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:94 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, p.6), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Rose BOUDREAUX m. François Pierre LEMOREQUE, says she died "at age 72 yrs.," but does not give her parents' names.  

83.  Wall of Names, 41, calls him Marin BOUDROT; BRDR, 2:117 (ASC-1, 199e), his death/burial record, calls him Marian BOUDREAUX, "an Acadian," but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or even give his age at the time of his burial. 

84.  Wall of Names, 44, calls him Noël BOUDRO; BRDR, 2:117, 482 (ASM-2, 80), his marriage record, calls him Noël-Victor BOUDREAUX "of St.-Servan, Diocese of St.-Malo," calls his wife Rosa LE BLANC "of Nantes, France," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Grégoire LEBLANC & Josef HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:66 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #10), his death/burial record, calls him Noël Victor BOUDREAUX m. Rosie LEBLANC, says he died "at age 66 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names.   

Why did he wait so long to marry?  He was a widower; his wife had died in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1836, in her early 50s.  See Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:350 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #753).  How close were they as cousins? 

85.  Wall of Names, 12 (pl. 1R), calls him Olivier BOUDROT, & lists him with no wife & son Simon; Arsenault, Généalogie, 447, the Port-Royal section, calls him Michel [sic] BOUDROT, says he was born in 1729 but gives no birthplace, says he was son of Michel BOUDROT & Anne-Marie LEBLANC, that he married Anne-Marie, daughter of Antoine DUPUIS & Marie-Joseph DUGAS of Grand-Pré, in c1758 but gives no place of marriage; White, DGFA-1, 208, calls him Olivier BOUDROT, gives his exact birth/baptismal date, calls his mother Cécile LEBLANC, says she was his father's first wife, & that Olivier's first wife was Anne-Marie DUPUIS, not Ludivine LANDRY; BRDR, 1a(rev.):34, his baptismal record, calls him Olivier BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, & says he was godson of François BOUDROT & Françoise BOUDROT; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 171, & Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 424, the record of his second marriage, call him Olivier BEAUDROS & BAUDROS; BRDR, 2:117 (SJA-1, 63a), his burial record, calls him Olivie BOUDREAUX, "age 52 years," but does not give his parents' names or mention any wives.  See also Bourgeois, 169, 177; De Ville, Acadian Coast, 1779, 15; De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 10; "Fort Edward, 1761-62"; "Ristigouche, 24 Oct 1760."  

Arsenault, 1112, 2426, the Grand-Pré & LA sections, calls him Olivier BOUDROT/BOUDREAUX, says he was born in 1728 but gives no birthplace, says he was son of Michel BOUDREAUX & Marie-Cécile LEBLANC, that he married Ludivine LANDRY in c1751 but gives no place of marriage; on 2426, Arsenault calls Joseph DUPUIS a son of Anne GAUDET, widow of Michel DUPUIS; but, on 2486, he points out that Joseph is a nephew, not the son of, Michel DUPUIS & Anne GAUDET. 

Arsenault, 2426, the LA section, says Olivier's only child when he came to LA was son Simon, born in 1753.  So what happened to his family of 6 counted at Fort Edward in Aug 1762?  Evidently not only his wife, but also some of his children, did not survive the family's ordeal in NS. 

86.  Wall of Names, 47, calls him Olivier BOUDROT; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 22, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, he lost his wife Henriette & 4 of their 5 children on the crossing to St.-Malo--daughter Anne, age 13, & sons Bazile, age 12, Charles, age 6, & Jean-Baptiste, age 3, that only he & daughter Madeleine-Josèphe, age 15, survived the crossing.  See also De La Roque, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:122.

88.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls him Paul BOUDROT beau fils [of Charles BROUSSARD], & lists him with his mother, stepfather, & 4 stepbrothers; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 98-99, Family No. 125; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 14-15, Family No. 28; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 8-9, calls him Paul BOUDREAU, beau fils [of Charles BROUSSARD], age 13, on the embarkation list, Pablo BAUDREAUD, hijastro [of Carlos BROUSARD], on the debarkation list, & Paul BOUDROT, stepson [of Charles BROUSSARD], age 13, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 24th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his mother, stepfather, & 4 stepbrothers; BRDR, 2:117, 595 (ASM-2, 9), his marriage record, calls him Pablo Maria BOUDRAUX, calls his wife Ysabel Maria PITRE, gives his & her parents' names, says all parents were "of St.-Malo," that his father & her father were deceased at the time of his wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan Bautista CAZEBON & Juan MERCIE; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:67 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #314), his death/burial record, calls him Paul Marie BOUDREAUX m. Élisabeth PITTRE, says he died "at age 75 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names.

He was a widower; his wife had died in Lafourche Interior Parish in Mar 1836, in her early 60s. 

89.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him Paul-Marie [BOUDROT], & lists him with his parents & no siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 25-26, Family No. 46, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Paul-Marie BOUDROT, gives his parents' but not his godparents' names, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 4-5, calls him Paul-Marie, son [Paul Dque BOUDREAUX's] fils, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, Pablo Marin, su [Pablo Domingo BOUDREAUD's] hijo de teta, on the debarkation list, & Paul-Marin BOUDROT, his [Paul-Dominique BOUDROT's] son, nursling, on the complete listing, says he was in the 14th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & no siblings, & says he was baptized in 1784 but gives no place of baptism.  

What happened to him in LA?  Did he die young?  He should not be confused with his much younger brother Paul, who was born in May 1811 & married into the GAUTREAUX family in Feb 1832.  See BRDR, 3:127 (ASM-6, 222); & Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:96, 235 (Thib. Ch.: v. 1, #363).

90.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9L), calls him Pierre-David [BOUDROT], & lists him with his parents & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 22-23, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Pierre-David BOUDROT, does not give his godparents' names, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls him Pierre-David, sa [Jean-Charles BOUDRAU's] fils, age 2, on the embarkation list, & Pierre-David GUÉDRY[sic], his [Jean-Charles BOUDROT's] son, age 2, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 18th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 3 siblings; BRDR, 3:128, 294 (ASM-2, 131), his marriage record, calls him Pierre David BOUDREAU, calls his wife Marcie/Marie DUHON, "wid.

91.  Wall of Names, 12, calls him Simon BOUDROT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2426, 2428, the LA section, calls him Simon BOUDREAUX, says he was born in 1753, that his mother was Ludivine LANDRY, & says his children were Marie-(Henriette), born in 1776, & Simon in c1778 but gives no birthplaces; BRDR, 2:118, 272, 3:128, 307 (SJA-1, 45a), his marriage record, calls him Simon BOUDERAU, calls his wife Monique DUPUYS, gives his & her parents' names, says in vol. 2 that his mother was Anne DUPUY & in vol. 3 that she was Ludevine LANDRY, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph BLANCHAR, Pierre BLANCHAR, Jean-Baptiste DUPUYS, & Joseph MELANZON; BRDR, 4:75 (SJA-4, 53), his burial record, calls him Simon BOUDREAUX, "age about 70 yrs., nat. of Acadia," but does not gives his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 169, 177; De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 10.  

White, DGFA-1, 208, his father's profile, followed here, gives his parents' names, calls his mother Anne-Marie DUPUIS, & shows that she was his father's first wife.  His father's second wife was Anne GAUDET, widow of Michel DUPUIS--his stepmother & future mother-in-law.  Since both his mother & his wife were DUPUISs, Simon's wife was not only his stepsister but also a distant cousin.  

92.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls her Sophie [BOUDROT], & lists her with her parents, 3 siblings, & a minor; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 23-24, Family No. 43, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Sophie [BOUDROT], gives her parents' names, & 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, 68-69, calls her Sophie, sa [Jh BOUDREAU's] fille, age 3, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Sophie BOUDROT, his [Joseph BOUDROT's] daughter, age 3, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 14th Family aboard L'Amitié with her parents, 3 siblings, & a minor; BRDR, 2:118, 212 (ASM-2, 69), her marriage record, calls her Sophia BOUDRAUX "of the Parish of St.-Martin in Nantes, France," calls her husband Joseph Hipolito DAGBERT "of St.-Eloy Parish in Dunkerque, Dept. of LaManche," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Ambroise HÉBERT & Josef BOUDRAUX [her father or brother].

When & where did he die?  His wife remarried at either Bayou des Écores or Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, in September 1787, so he died probably at Bayou des Écores soon after he took his family there. 

95.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Yves BOUDROT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 74-75; BRDR, 3:129, 754-55 (ASM-2, 106), his marriage record, calls him Yve BOUDRAUX "of Nantes, France," calls his wife Rosalia ROGER "of St. James parish," gives his & her parents' names, says her parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Josef AUCOIN & Estevan BOUDRAUX [probably his father]; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:101 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, p.47), his death/burial record, calls him Yves Ciprien BOUDREAUX "b. at Sante, Bretagne, France," does not give her parents' names nor mentions a wife.  

His middle name also can be found in his father's succession record, dated 16 Apr 1825, in Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:83 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: 1825).

He & his first wife had 11 children & buried 8, 5 of them at sea!  His second wife gave him no more children.  

The family of his son Charles by his first wife was 2 down from his on the embarkation list of L'Amitié.  

97.  Not in Wall of Names.  Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 117-120, Family No. 150, probably his birth-baptismal record, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDROT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Jean LANDRY & Marie-Rose BOUDROT, & that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1766-72; Brasseaux, Founding of New Acadia, 208, a list of passengers aboard the Brigite, calls him Jean-Baptiste BOUDRAU; BRDR, 2:114, 476 (ASM-2, 4 & 5), the record of his first marriage, calls him Juan Bautista BOUDREAUX, calls his wife Maria Francisca LE BLANC, gives his & her parents' names, says all parents were "of St.-Malo," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Ysaac HÉBERT, & Juan SEDOTO; BRDR, 2:72, 114 (ASM-2, 84), the record of his second marriage, calls him Juan Bautista BOUDRAUX, "widower of Francoise LEBLANC & native of St.-Servan, France," calls his wife Maria Rosa BENOIT "of Chatelrau," gives his wife's but not his parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Françoise[sic] LELOREC [probably François, his brother-in-law] & Anbroise[sic] HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:61 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #497), his death/burial record, calls him Jean Baptiste BOUDREAUX m. Marie BENOIT, says he died on 15 Oct 1848 "at age 88 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names or mention his first wife; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:61 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ. #95), his succession inventory record, calls him Jean Baptiste BOUDREAUX Sr., says he died on 13 Oct 1848, does not give his parents' names or mention a wife but lists his children as Jean Baptiste, Jr., Théodore, Rosalie Théotiste, Bastien, Émilie Élise, & Firmin.  

I am assuming that the Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX who came to LA with the Joseph GRAVOIS party from Île St.-Pierre in Dec 1788 was the son of Victor BOUDREAUX.  No other Jean-Baptiste BOUDREAUX fits.  How did he become separated from his family in France, who came to LA in late 1785 without him?  Was he a sailor & not living in France in 1785?  He would have been 18 that year.  Was he aboard La Brigite in 1788 because of his sailing skills?  Perhaps he was simply a crewman on Joseph GRAVOIS's schooner.  Or he may have been a kinsman of the GRAVOISs & BABINs, the 2 families who sailed aboard La Brigite.  If so, what was the relationship?  Note that Joseph GRAVOIS's wife Marie-Madeleine BOURG's mother was Jeanne HÉBERT, & Jean-Baptiste's mother was Catherine-Josèphe HÉBERT.  Jeanne had an older sister named Marie- or Catherine-Josèphe, but, according to White, DGFA-1, 833-34, Jeanne's sister was not the Catherine-Josèphe who married Victor BOUDREAUX.  No matter, the Acadian concept of family extended to distant cousins as well as siblings and close cousins. 

98.  Not in Wall of Names because of the circumstance of his birth; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2428, the LA section, profile of his father, gives his parents' names, calls his mother Françoise SEMER, & says he was born in 1786 but give no birthplace; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:88 (SM Ch.: v.3, #160), his birth/baptismal record, calls him Antoine BOUDREAUX, gives his parents' names but does not say his father was deceased, & says his godparents were Grégoire SEMERE [his maternal uncle] & Marie-Marthe CASTILLE; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:108-09, 845 (Opel. Ch.: v.1-A, p.227), his marriage record, calls him Antoine BOUDREAUX, "originally from this parish," calls his wife Marie SAVOIS, "originally from this parish," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Frédéric MATHIAS & Grégoire SEMAIRE [his maternal uncle]; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 5:59 (Opel.Ct.Hse.: Succ. #1447), his succession record, calls him Antoine BOUDREAUX m. Marie SAVOIE but does not give his parents' names. 

99.  Not in Wall of Names.  Mouhot, ed., "Letter by Jean-Baptiste Semer," 222n10, taken from French genealogist Gérard-Marc Braud, says Joseph BOUDREAUX, no parents given, married Marie-Françoise, daughter of Germain SEMER & Marie TRAHAN, on 30 May 1785, at "Chantenay, St. Martin."  Mouhot, ed., adds that Marie-Françoise was born in Notre-Dame (Seine-Maritime) Parish, Le Havre, France, in c1762.  

One wonders which Acadian Joseph BOUDROT in France this might have been.  Was he the Joseph, son of Jean-Zacaharie BOUDROT & Marguerite HÉBERT, born at Minas in c1755, deported to VA that year, sent on to England in the spring of 1756, held in England for 7 years, followed his parents to St.-Malo, France, aboard the ship L'Ambition in May 1763, resided at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo, lost his mother there in Jul 1764 & his father in Apr 1765, & went to live with Joseph CÉLESTIN dit BELLEMÈRE, husband of Marguerite BOUDROT, after his father's death?  See Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 107. 

Arsenault, Généalogie, 2428, the LA section, would have us believe that Françoise SEMER's husband was Joseph, son of Antoine BOUDREAUX & Brigitte APART, who came to LA with his widowed mother & 4 siblings aboard L'Amitié, in 1785.  But this makes no sense.  Joseph à Antoine was born at Trigavou, near St.-Malo, in Feb 1765, so he certainly would have been old enough to have married Françoise SEMER in May 1785, but the passenger list of L'Amitié says nothing about the Joseph à Antoine being married, only that he was age 18 & a carpenter.  See Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73.  Moreover, a Joseph BOUDREAUT, age 22, who appears in the Valenzuéla census of Jan 1788 is listed singly.  See Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 45.  According to the census, this Joseph on the upper Lafourche would have had an estimated birth year of c1766, the correct age, & he was in the right place, for the son of Antoine & Brigitte.  If Arsenault is correct, then where is Joseph à Antoine's wife?  And what is he doing on upper Bayou Lafourche when he should have been at Attakapas with wife Françoise? 

The baptismal record of Antoine, son of Joseph BOUDREAUX & Marie-Françoise SEMERE, dated 9 Jan 1787, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:88 (SM Ch.: v.3, #160), shows that the boy was born on 28 Feb 1786.  The church record does not specify the birthplace, but it is likely that he was born where he was baptized--at Attkapas.  The date of his father Joseph's arrival in LA is unknown.  Joseph did not accompany his wife to LA aboard L'Amitié in 1785, nor is he on the passenger list of any of the other 7 Ships of 1785.  But the birth of his son in Feb 1786 shows that he & his wife were together in the summer of 1785.  L'Amitié left Paimboeuf, the port of Nantes, on 20 Aug 1785, so it is likely that Joseph crossed on one of the 7 Ships regardless of what the records say or do not say.  Of course, Joseph could have "fathered" Antoine in France in the summer of 1785 & remained there, but it is clear that Joseph crossed to LA.  Witness the baptismal record of son Louis, dated 7 Oct 1789, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:90 (SM Ch.: v.4, #382), which gives a birth date of 15 May 1789.  This means that Joseph would have been in LA by Sep 1788, when Louis likely was conceived.  

A "Widow SEMER" living on the upper Bayou Teche is mentioned in a church record dated 1 Jan 1789 in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:735 (SM Ch.: v.5, #449).  If the "Widow SEMER" was Françoise, then Joseph died in c1788, perhaps soon after he fathered son Louis.  But this notion is nullified by the birth of son Joseph, fils in Aug 1791.  See Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:113 (SM Ch.: v.4, #617), which, strangely, calls the boy Joseph BREAUX & the father Joseph BRO, husband of Françoise SEMER.  Françoise never married a BREAUX, so this is Joseph BOUDREAUX, fils's baptismal record.  The boy was born on 10 Aug 1791 & baptized on 6 Jul 1794.  One wonders if Joseph BOUDREAUX, père was still alive when this son was baptized.  

For Joseph's wife's remarriage, dated 23 Aug 1796, see Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:705 (SM Ch.: Marriage Investigation: Folio D, #6 & 6A; NI Ch.: OA Folio, #3), which calls her Françoise SEMER, widow BOUDREAUX.  

100.  Not in Wall of Names because of the circumstance of his birth.  BRDR, 2:118 (ASC-5, 3), his birth/baptismal record, calls him Simon BOUDREAUX, calls his parents Jorge[sic] [BOUDREAUX] & Margarita RICHARD, does not give his birth date or birthplace, & says he was the godson of Simon "illegible" & Margarita LANDRY; BRDR, 3:128 (ASM-3, 115), his death/burial record, calls him Simon BOUDREAUX, age 30, gives his parents' names but does not mention a wife. 

101.  Not in Wall of Names.  Arsenault, Généalogie, 2427, the LA section, calls him Augustin BOUDREAUX, says he was born in c1745, son of Pierre [BOUDREAUX] & Marie PRÉJEAN of Grand-Pré, details his marriage to Osite HÉBERT, including her parents' names, but does not mention her first husband nor give Augustin & Osite any children; BRDR, 2:109, 372 (SJA-1, 12a), his marriage record, calls him Augustin BOUDROS, calls his wife Osithe HÉBERE, gives his & her parents' names but does not mention her first husband, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Josephe SAUNIER, Thomas THERIOT, Jean B. BERGERON, & Josephe DUPUIS. 

Note that Osite HÉBERT, widow of Alexandre MELANSON, came to LA from MD in 1766 with 6 of her children.  See her profile on the HÉBERT family page. 

What happened to him after his marriage?  The St.-Jacques census of Jan 1777 counts his wife & 4 of her MELANSON sons but not Augustin.  See De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 10.  Had he died by then? 

Why is he not on the Acadian Memorial's Wall of Names?  He obviously was an Acadian immigrant.  Did the editors of Wall of Names follow White, DFGA-1, 827, which says that the Augustin BOUDREAUX who married Osite HÉBERT was Augustin dit Rémi BOUDREAUX, born in c1755, who came to LA in 1768 as a teenager?  What 16-year-old would have married a 40-year-old widow?  And there was only one Osite HÉBERT who came to LA.  See note 07, above. 

102.  Not in Wall of Names.  Arsenault, Généalogie, 2430, the LA section, calls him Félix BOUDREAUX, does not give his birth year or parents' names, says he married Françoise GUILLOT at Donaldsonville on 17 Oct 1787, but does not give her parents' names or mention any children; BRDR, 2:111, 348 (ASC-2, 5), his marriage record, calls him Félix BOUDREAU, calls his wife Françoise GUILLOT, does not give any parents' names or mention a previous marriage but says they all "were Acadians," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Pierre GUILLOT [her brother] & Pierre LANDRY.

He is not in Wall of Names probably because he appears on none of the 7 Ships passenger lists.  However, judging from his marriage date & place, he probably came to LA in 1785.  He could not have been the Félix BOUDREAUX who came from France aboard Le St.-Rémi & who remarried to La Luce BOURG at Ascension in Aug 1787; see above.  Arsenault, 2428, says the Félix who would have crossed on Le St.-Rémi was born in 1752, son of Pierre [BOUDREAUX] & Cécile VESCOT [VÉCOT] of Beaubassin, married Madeleine HÉBERT in c1775 & remarried to Luce HÉBERT, widow of Pierre HÉBERT, at Ascension, now Donaldsonville, on 30 Aug 1787.  Arsenault adds that Félix à Pierre was living on Île St.-Jean in 1752 & at Cherbourg in 1772, which means he was deported to France in 1758-59. 

Françoise GUILLOT was only 20 years old at the time she married Félix BOUDREAUX, so he likely was in his 20s as well.  She remarried to Paul-Hippolyte THERIOT in May 1787 & followed him to the Attakapas District. 

Again, we have an instance in which the negligence of the priest at Ascension in the late 1780s makes it difficult to complete the genealogical record.  All the good father had to do was list Félix & Françoise's parents' names, & the question marks in this profile would have been unnecessary. 

103.  Not in Wall of Names because of the circumstance of his birth.  BRDR, 2:112 (SGA-1, 7, #21), his baptismal record, calls him Josef BOUDREAUX, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Anselmo LANDRI & Maria BOUDRAUX; BRDR, 3:122, 285 (ASC-2, 141), his marriage record, calls him Joseph BOUDREAU, calls his wife Ann DUGAT, "wid. Louis FORET," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Paul BOUDREAU [his father or his older brother], Paul DUGAS, & Charles DUGAS.   

His birth in Jan 1786 means that he was conceived in Apr.  His parents' ship, Le Bon Papa, left Paimboeuf, France, on 10 May & reached New Orleans on 29 Jul 1785.  So, clearly, his mother was several months pregnant when she stepped off the ship at New Orleans, hence his not appearing on the passenger roll of Le Bon Papa

His & his wife's middle names are from son Charles Jérôme's baptismal record, dated 31 Jul 1809, in BRDR, 3:119 (ASM-6, 212), which calls the parents Josef Maria [BOUDREAUX} & Ana Josefa DUGAT.
