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

DAIGRE/DAIGLE

[DEG, DEG-ul, DAY-gul]

ACADIA

Olivier Daigre, born in France in c1643, reached Acadia by c1666, the year he married Marie, daughter of Denis Gaudet and Martine Gauthier.  Between 1667 and 1681, Olivier and Marie had 10 children, seven sons and three daughters.  Olivier died at Port-Royal before c1686, in his early 40s, and Marie remarried to a Fardel or Fredelle.  Two of Olivier's daughters married into the Sibilau, Gouzil, Poitevin dit Parisien, and Tennier or Thénière families.  One of them, Marie, had "natural" daughters with Gabriel Moulaison dit Recontre and Louis Blin.  Olivier's youngest daughter and her family perished aboard the British transport Violet in a North Atlantic storm during the deportation of the island Acadians to France in late 1758.  Only two of Olivier's sons created families of their own, at Port-Royal, Minas, and in the French Maritimes. 

Third son Bernard, born at Port-Royal in c1670, married Marie-Claire, daughter of Bernard Bourg and Françoise Brun, probably at Port-Royal in c1691.  They moved to the Minas Basin, where they lived for a time on Rivière-Kenescout and at Grand-Pré before moving to L'Assomption, Pigiguit.  They had 13 children, including nine sons who married into the Richard, Gautrot, Testard dit Paris, Landry, Breau, Doucet, Boudrot, Hébert dit Manuel, and Vincent families.  One of their daughters married into the Hébert dit Manuel family.  Bernard and many of his children moved from Minas to Île St.-Jean, today's Prince Edward Island, by the early 1750s probably to escape British authority in Nova Scotia.  A granddaughter settled at La Baleine and Lorembec on Île Royale, today's Cape Breton Island.  Bernard died at Port-Lajoie, Île St.-Jean, in January 1751, age 80.  

Olivier's fifth son Olivier, fils, born at Port-Royal in c1674, married Jeanne, daughter of Guillaume Blanchard and Huguette Gougeon, at Port-Royal in c1699.  They remained in the Port-Royal area, where they had six children, including three sons who married into the Arseneau, Cormier, Granger, and Thériot families.  Their three daughters married into the Thériot, Trahan, and Richard families.  Olivier, fils's sons moved to Chignecto and Minas.  

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

In 1755, descendants of Olivier Daigre, père could be found at Annapolis Royal; Grand-Pré and L'Assomption, Piguiguit, in the Minas Basin; Chignecto; the trois-rivières area west of Chignecto; and on Île St.-Jean and Île Royale in the French Maritimes.  By then, the family's name had evolved from Daigre to Daigle, though some members of the family retained the original spelling.

LOUISIANA:  RIVER SETTLEMENTS

The first descendant of Olivier Daigre, père to find refuge in Louisiana came in September 1766 from Maryland.  Agnès-Marie, daughter of Paul Daigle and Marie Hébert of Minas, was only 14 years old when she reached the lower Mississippi Valley probably with relatives.  She followed them to Cabanocé/St.-Jacques on the river above New Orleans, where she married Thomas, son of fellow Acadians Joseph Thériot and Françoise Melanson, in April 1771.  They settled at St.-Jacques, where they were counted on the left, or east, bank of the river in 1777.  Agnès died near Baton Rouge in February 1812; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 73 years old when she died, but she was closer to 60.  Her succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, the following April, so some of her children must have settled in that area. 

~

Not until two decades later, in 1785, did more Acadian Daigles come to the colony.  In fact, if the Spanish government had not coaxed over 1,500 Acadians in France to emigrate to Louisiana, there may have been no Acadian Daigle families in the Bayou State today.  Most of them chose to go to river communities:  

Charles Daigle of Ste.-Famille, Pigiguit, age 54, and wife Anne-Marie Vincent, age 55, crossed on Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships of 1785, which reached New Orleans in July.  They followed the majority of the passengers from their vessel to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.  Understandably, they had no more children in Louisiana.  Anne-Marie died at St.-Gabriel in October 1785, age 55, soon after they got there.  Charles remarried to Françoise-Marie or Marie-Françoise, called Françoise, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Boudreaux of Ste.-Famille and widow of Joseph Clossinet and Marin Dugas, at St.-Gabriel in 1786.  Françoise was in her late 40s at the time of the marriage and gave Charles no more children.  They moved to upper Bayou Lafourche by the mid-1790s.

.

The largest contingents of Daigles and one of the largest single Acadian family groups to reach the colony--31 Daigles in all--crossed on Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans later in August.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Baton Rouge.  Many of them settled at the southern edge of the district near Fort Bute, which had been built by the British, just north of Bayou Manchac:

Françoise Daigle, age 55, came with second husband Pierre Richard, age 72, and four children, ages 20 to 11.  They remained at Manchac, where Pierre died in November 1794, leaving Françoise a widow again.  

Olivier Daigle IV of Rivière-aux-Canards, age 53, twice a widower, came with eight children, all by his second marriage--Victor, age 23, François, age 19, Simon-François, age 18, Jean-Baptiste, age 15, Marie-Geneviève, age 11, Pélagie, age 9, Eulalie, age 6, and Honoré, age 3.  Olivier may have lingered at New Orleans with his younger children while his older children moved on to Manchac.  He did not remarry again and died probably at Manchac in August 1787, age 55.  His daughters married into the Aid, Aucoin, Breaux, and Landry families and remained in the Baton Rouge area, as did his sons, all of whom had families of their own.  

Simon-Pierre Daigle, age 50, Olivier's younger brother, came with second wife Anne Michel, age 51, and seven of his children by his first marriage--Marie-Marguerite, age 24, Anne-Geneviève, age 22, Édouard, age 21, Simon-Pierre, fils, age 18, Élisabeth, age 13, Marie-Madeleine, age 11, and Joseph-Michel, age 9.  Anne died at Manchac in July 1786, soon after they settled there, in her early 50s.  Their daughters married into the Mire, Provenché, and Trahan, families and remained in the Baton Rouge area.  One son remained in the Baton Rouge area and had a large family, another moved downriver to the Acadian Coast and created a family line in St. James Parish, and another moved to the Attakapas District, but his line did not survive there.  Simon-Pierre, père remarried again--his third marriage--to Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Thériot and widow of Alexandre Aucoin, probably at Baton Rouge in January 1788.  His third wife gave him no more children.  Simon-Pierre, père died probably at Manchac in October 1792; he was 57 years old.  

Jean-Baptiste Daigle, age 45, came with French wife Marie-Claudine Valet, age 31, and their 1-year-old son Jean-René, who probably died at sea.  Jean-Baptiste and Marie-Claudine remained at Baton Rouge and evidently had no more children.  Jean-Baptiste died by March 1795, when Marie-Claudine remarried at Baton Rouge.  His line of the family died with him.  

François-Marie Daigle, age 45, came with French wife Jeanne Holley, age 47, and four children--Louis-François, age 18, Marie-Jeanne-Jacqueline, age 16, Flore-Adélaïde, age 15, and Marie-Louise, called Louise, age 10.  François and Jeanne evidently had no more children in Louisiana.  Their daughters married into the Arbour and Tullier families and remained in the Baton Rouge area, as did Louis-François.  François, père died near Baton Rouge by September 1790, when he was listed as deceased in two of his daughters' marriage records.  Louis-François also married and created a family of his own.  

François-Alexandre Daigle, age 22, François-Marie's older son, came with wife Rose-Adélaïde Bourg, age 19, and two children--Émelie-Adélaïde, age 1, and infant François-Joseph.  They remained on the river and had more children there, including many sons.  

Marguerite-Ange Dubois, age 31, widow of Jean Daigle, came with her 10-year-old son Jean-Louis.  Marguerite-Ange remarried twice, to fellow Acadian Charles Granger at Baton Rouge in the late 1780s, and to fellow Acadian Marin Gautreaux, widower of Gertrude Bourg, at Ascension in January 1792.  Jean-Louis followed his mother to upper Bayou Lafourche and settled there. 

Paul-Olivier Daigle, age 18, an orphan, came with the family of Joseph Doiron.  He remained in the Baton Rouge area and created a large family.  

Joseph Daigle, age 14, an orphan, came with his uncle Charles Granger, age 33.  He was living with an older married sister at Lafourche in the late 1780s and settled on the upper bayou, where he created a large family.  

.

Marie LeBlanc, age 25, wife of Jean Daigle, crossed on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in November.  With her were two daughters--Marie, age 1, and Marguerite, a newborn.  Marie evidently settled in the Isleño community of San Bernardo on the river south of New Orleans.  One wonders what happened to her husband.  

.

More Daigles crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to the new Acadian settlement of Bayou des Écores north of Baton Rouge.  Two hurricanes devastated the settlement in the early 1790s, and most of the Acadians there moved elsewhere, including the Daigles.  

Félicité Daigle, age 55, came with husband Jean Pitre, age 58, and six children, ages 20 to 14.  When the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, they went to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

Marguerite Daigle, age 45, came with second husband Joseph Hébert, age 50, and five children, ages 18 to infancy, including a daughter from her first marriage to Honoré Richard.  

Anne-Josèphe Daigle, age 40, came with husband Jean Bourg, age 50, and eight children, ages 17 to infancy.  When the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, they went to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

Marie-Osite Daigle, age 40, came with husband Marin Bourg, age 45, and nine children, ages 22 to 4.  When the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, they went to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

Marie-Marguerite Daigle, age 37, came with second husband Louis Clossinet, age 54, and a 16-year-old daughter from her first marriage to Amand Giroir.  When the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, they went to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

Marie Daigle, age 24, an "orphan," came with the family of Charles Aucoin.  

.

Many of the Daigles who came from France remained on the river and settled in what became East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Iberville, Ascension, and St. James parishes.  They were especially numerous in the Baton Rouge/Iberville Parish area, where they preferred to use the original spelling of their surname, Daigre:  

Marie-Geneviève Daigre, widow of Arsène Breaux, died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in February 1845.  She was 71 years old. 

Émilie Adélaïde Daigle, wife of Étienne Hébert, fils, died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in March 1851.  The priest who recorded her burial said that Émilie died at "age 70 yrs.," but she was "only" 67. 

Jean-Baptiste DAIGRE, fils (c1740-1790s; Olivier, Olivier, fils)

Jean-Baptiste, fils, son of Jean-Baptiste Daigre and Madeleine Thériot, born perhaps at Rivière-aux-Canards, Minas, in c1740, married Marie-Claudine, daughter of Guillaume Valet and Perrine Catot of Quimperlé, France, probably at Nantes, France, in c1783.  Jean-Baptiste worked as a plowman in the mother country.  He and Marie-Claudine came to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785, with their 1-year-old son Jean-René, who evidently died at sea.  Jean-Baptiste and Marie-Claudine followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Baton Rouge, where Jean-Baptiste died by March 1795, when his wife remarried there to a French Canadian.  Jean-Baptiste would have been in his mid-50s that year.  His only son died an infant, and he and his wife had no more children in the colony, so when Jean-Baptiste died, his line of the family died with him.  

Jean-René, baptized at St.-Jacques, Nantes, France, age unrecorded, in April 1784, evidently died on the voyage to Louisiana in 1785.  

Descendants of Victor DAIGRE (1761-1788; Olivier, Olivier, fils, Olivier III)

Victor, eldest son of Olivier Daigre IV and his second wife Marie-Blanche LeBlanc, was born probably at Falmouth, England, in December 1761.  In May 1763, he was repatriated with his family to Morlaix, France, and followed them to Belle-Île-en-Mer, where they were counted in 1765.  He became a carpenter when he came of age, followed his widowed father and siblings to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and settled at Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where he married Marguerite-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Doiron and Anne Thibodeau, in May 1786.  Marguerite-Josèphe also had come to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont.  Victor died probably at Manchac in December 1788; he was only 27 years old. 

1

Older son Joseph, born at Manchac in May 1787, married Marie, daughter of Spanish Creole Andrés Lopes de Acuna and Catherine Broussard, probably at Manchac.  They settled in what became West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Jean Thomas was born at Manchac in December 1810, and Pierre Joseph Thomas December 1812.  Their daughters married into the Breaux and Tullier families. 

2

Younger son Jean-Béloni, called Béloni, born at Manchac in October 1788, married cousin Anne Marie or Marie Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Trahan and Anne Geneviève Daigle, probably at Manchac.  Their son Pierre Aristide was born probably in West Baton Rouge Parish in December 1829, and Jean Deossilys in June 1832.  Their daughters married into the Aillet, Crochet, Doiron, Hébert, Labauve, LeBlanc, and Tullier families.  Béloni remarried to French Creole Modeste Prospere and settled near Baton Rouge by the early 1840s.  Their son Jean Ulysse was born in January 1845.  Their daughter married into the Francis family.  Béloni died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in November 1853; the priest who recorded his burial said that Béloni died at "age 58 yrs.," but he was 65. 

Descendants of François DAIGRE (1765-1839; Olivier, Olivier, fils, Olivier III)

François, second son of Olivier Daigre IV and his second wife Marie-Blanche LeBlanc, was born at Le Palais, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in December 1765.  He, too, became a carpenter when he came of age, followed his widowed father and siblings to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and settled at Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where he married Servanne-Laurence, sometimes called Honorienne and Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians René Landry and Marguerite Babin, in June 1793.  Servanne, sister of François's brother Simon-François's wife, had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships.  François died near Baton Rouge in January 1839; he was 73 years old.  Only two of his five sons survived childhood and married, and only one of them fathered sons of his own. 

1

Oldest son Olivier-François, born at Manchac in October 1793, married cousin Carmelite, daughter of fellow Acadians Paul Olivier Daigre and Marie Richard, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1816.  Was he the Olivier Daigre "from the highlands" who died near Baton Rouge, age unrecorded, in July 1843?  If so, he would have been only 49 years old at the time of his death.  Carmelite, called "Mrs. Olivier Daigre," died near Baton Rouge in September 1855; she was 59 years old.  Did she and Olivier François have any children? 

2

Jean-Baptiste, born at Manchac in January 1795, died at age 6 months the following July.

Laurent or Laurence, born at Manchac in May 1798, married Céleste, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Trahan and Marguerite Doiron, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1821.  Their child, name and age unrecorded, perhaps a son, died near Baton Rouge in May 1823, Laurence Turiaf was born in July 1826 but died at age 11 in August 1837, Alphonse Forester, called Forester, was born in January 1829, Ernest Nicolas in December 1833, and Octave in May 1839.  Their daughters married into the Cointment, Estevan, Hébert, Henry, and Testard families.  Laurent died by October 1850, when he was listed as deceased in a daughter's marriage record. 

Forester married Marie Adeline, daughter of fellow Acadian Janvier Allain and Creole wife Marie Élise Bush, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in October 1850.  Their son Alphonse Désiré was born near St. Gabriel in May 1852.  Forester died near St. Gabriel in January 1868; the priest who recorded his burial said that Florestan, as he called him, died at "age 37 years," but Forester would have been 39. 

5

Youngest son Angèl died at Manchac 8 days after his birth in May 1803.  

Descendants of Simon-François DAIGRE (1767-1795?; Olivier, Olivier, fils, Olivier III)

Simon-François, fils, third son of Olivier Daigre IV and his second wife Marie-Blanche LeBlanc, was born at Le Palais, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in December 1767.  He became a wet cooper when he came of age, followed his widowed father and siblings to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, and settled at Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where he married Anne-Marie-Jeanne, called Marie, another daughter of René Landry and Marguerite Babin, in November 1794; Anne-Marie was sister of Simon's older brother Francois's wife Servanne.  Like her sister Servanne, Anne-Marie had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel.  They settled at Manchac, where Simon died probably in October 1795; he would have been only 28 years old that year.  His son settled in Iberville Parish, married twice, and had sons by his second wife.

Félix, by his father's second wife, married Théotiste or Théodice, daughter of Rosémond Capdevielle and Arthémise Hernandez, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1864.  Their son Joseph Ernest was born near St. Gabriel in December 1864, and Jean Baptiste Nepler in December 1866. 

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste DAIGRE (1770-?; Olivier, Olivier, fils, Olivier III)

Jean-Baptiste, fourth son of Olivier Daigre IV and his second wife Marie-Blanche LeBlanc, was born at Le Palais, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in February 1770.  He came to Louisiana with his widowed father and siblings aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where he married Marie-Julie, called Julie, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Trahan and Anne Granger, in June 1783.  Julie also was a native of Belle-Île-en-Mer and had come to Louisiana on Le Beaumont.  Their daughters married into the Arbour, Souchon dit Aubin, Ledoux, and Theriot families.  All three of their sons created families of their own and settled in West Baton Rouge and Iberville parishes, but one of the lines may have died out early.

3a

Saturin Zenon married Marie Emma, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Blanchard and Delphine LeBlanc, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1853, and may have remarried to Elise, perhaps a daughter of W. F. C. Duplessis and Célestine Vives, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in May 1859.  Their son Joseph was born near Baton Rouge in August 1866, an infant child, name unrecorded, perhaps Joseph, died in July 1867, and Jean Alphonse was born near St. Gabriel in August 1870.

4

Pierre Honoré, born at Manchac in December 1814, may have been the Pierre Daigre who died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in November 1855.  The priest who recorded the burial said that Pierre died at "age 43 years," but this Pierre would have been only a month shy of 41.  Did Pierre Honoré ever marry?  The recording priest did not give Pierre Daigre's parents' names, nor did he mention a wife.

Oldest son François-Joseph, called Joseph, born at Chantenay, France, in April 1785, married Brigitte, daughter of Thomas Courtin and Geneviève Bonvillain, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in November 1814.  Their son Treville was born at Manchac in July 1816, and Valentin in November 1817.  Their daughter married into the Munios family.  Joseph remarried to Modeste, daughter of fellow Acadians Simon Magloire Babin and his second wife Anne Louise Quimine, at the Baton Rouge church in June 1824.  Their son François Augustin was born probably at Manchac in August 1826.  Their daughters married into the Blanchard, Delaune (French Creole, not Acadian), and Lerey families.  Joseph died by April 1852, when he was listed as deceased in a daughter's marriage record.  Two of his sons settled in Ascension Parish, among the few member of the family to do so. 

1a

Treville, by his father's first wife, married Marthe Delaune and settled near Baton Rouge by the early 1840s; one wonders if Marthe was a sister of Edward Delaune, who married Treville's sister Arthémise; if so, Marthe was daughter of Louis Nicolas Delaune of Baton Rouge, a French Creole, not an Acadian.  Treville and Marthe's son Joseph Nicolas was baptized at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, age 2, in October 1848, Treville Lonzo was born near Baton Rouge in January 1849, Augustin Buchannon in October 1856, Charles Forest Lee near Gonzales, Ascension Parish, in December 1864, and Joseph Edgard in August 1870. 

1b

François Augustin, by his father's second wife, married cousin Marie Amelia or Eurelia, daughter of fellow Acadians Simon Landry and Anne Velerente Babin, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in October 1848.  Their son François Leufroi was born in Ascension Parish in June 1853, Simon Ernest near Baton Rouge in August 1856, Isidore Adélard in Ascension Parish, probably near Gonzales, in April 1858, Amédée René in March 1860, and Silvere Olivier in January 1869.  Their daughter married into the Decoteau family. 

2

André-Joseph or Joseph-André, also called Béloni, born at St.-Jacques in November 1791, married Adélaïde, daughter of Isleño André Martin of Tenerife, Canary Islands, and Baton Rouge, his Acadian wife Marie Anne Landry, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1816.  Their son Lucien was born at Manchac in May 1818.  They also had a son named Joseph Maximilien, called Maxille, who moved to Bayou Teche in the 1840s. 

Joseph Maximilien married cousin Marie Aurore, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Baptiste Henry and Marie Daigle, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1837.  Maxille remarried to Marcellite Ida, daughter of fellow Acadians Anaclet Melançon and Anne Doralise Thibodeaux, at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in May 1845.  They remained on Bayou Teche.

3

Daniel, born at Manchac in January 1795, may have died young.  

4

Jean-Baptiste, called John B., baptized at Baton Rouge, age 2 1/2, in November 1801, crossed the Atchafalaya Basin when he came of age and married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Haché and Geneviève LeBlanc of Fausse Pointe, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in September 1823.  They lived in Lafayette Parish before returning to the river.  Their son Jean Baptiste, fils, was born in Lafayette Parish in October 1825, Treville le jeune was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 27 days, in November 1829, Enoch was born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in July 1832 but died at age 1 in September 1833, and Joseph Jean Baptiste was born near Baton Rouge in June 1840.  Their daughter married into the Horsler and Sovano families. 

Treville le jeune may have married Mary Cull or Mary Jane Roddy and settled near Baton Rouge by 1860.  Treville Daigle died near Baton Rouge in February 1867; the priest who recorded his burial did not give Treville's parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.

5

Thomas, baptized at Baton Rouge, age 5 weeks, in October 1802, may have died young. 

6

A second Thomas died at Manchac, age 11 months, in March 1815.  

Descendants of Louis-François DAIGRE (1766-?; Olivier, Bernard, Abraham)

Louis-François, younger son of François-Marie Daigre and his French wife Jeanne Holley, born at Cherbourg, France, in August 1766, became a calker in France.  He came to Louisiana with his parents and sisters aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785, and followed them to Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where he married Marie-Rose, called Rose, daughter of fellow Acadians Jacques Molaison, père and Marie-Blanche Doiron, in July 1790.  Marie-Rose also had come to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont.  They settled in what became West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their daughters married into the Demonceaux, Dupuis, Esnard, Hébert, Landry, Rappelet, and Thomas families.  Two of their three sons created families of their own and settled in West Baton Rouge Parish. 

1

Oldest son Jacques-Louis, born at Manchac in October 1797, died at age 11 months in October 179[8].  

2

Louis-Isidore, called Isidore, born at Manchac in September 1802, married first cousin Delphine Céleste or Célestine, daughter of fellow Acadian Jacques Molaison, fils and his Creole wife Céleste Bernard du Montier, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1831; they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of relationship in order to marry.  Their son Isidore, fils was born near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1846.  Their daughters married into the Aillet, Blanchard, Grass, and Woodruff families.

3

François Joachim, called Joachim, born at Manchac in January 1804, married Dortille, daughter of fellow Acadians Marcel Dupuis and Marie Josèphe LeBlanc, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in May 1823.  Their son Théodore was born probably at Manchac in February 1830, Joachim, fils in January 1833, Amédée Ferdinand in October 1834, Louis, a twin, in November 1836, Prudent in September 1839, and Joseph Isidore near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1844.  Their daughters married into the Blanchard, Hébert, and Landry families.  Joachim died near Brusly in April 1855; he was only 51 years old.  Four of his sons served honorably in the same company, which saw much action during the War of 1861-65; one of them did not survive the war. 

3a

A "Mrs. Théodore Daigle" died "at Natchez" in June 1855; she was only "ca. 19 years" old.  The Brusly priest who recorded her burial did not give her name, so one wonders if her husband was Théodore, son of Joachim, and if they settled at Natchez, Mississippi, which was a good distance from West Baton Rouge Parish.  Perhaps "Natchez" was the name of a community near Brusly. 

3b

During the War of 1861-65, Joachim, fils served in Company H of the 4th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in West Baton Rouge Parish, which fought in Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, Georgia, and Alabama.  At age 28, Joachim enlisted with younger brother Prudent at Camp Moore, Tangipahoa Parish, in May 1861 (brothers Louis and Joseph Isidore joined the company later, Louis as an officer).  Joachim's Confederate service did not last long.  He fell sick at New Orleans the month of his enlistment but returned to his unit.  The following winter, he contracted pneumonia at Berwick City, on the lower Atchafalaya, and was sent to a hospital in New Orleans.  Evidently he did not recuperate.  He was sent home, where he died in 1862, age 29 years old.  Evidently he did not marry. 

During the War of 1861-65, Louis served in two companies that fought in different theatres of operations.  He enlisted first as a private in Company F of the 1st (Dreux's/Rightor's) Battalion Louisiana Infantry, raised at New Orleans, which fought in Florida and Virginia.  Louis's Confederate service record says he was 23 years old when he enlisted in the company at New Orleans in April 1861, but he was 24.  The record also says he was a resident of Brusly Landing, West Baton Rouge Parish, had a dark complexion, dark hair, hazel eyes, and stood five feet, eight inches tall.  He followed his unit to Pensacola and then to Richmond that spring and summer.  He probably fought in the Battle of Big Bethel, Virginia, near Newport News, in early July 1861, one of the first battles of the war.  Louis's longest service was in another outfit, however.  After his battalion was incorporated into another unit, he returned to Louisiana.  At Port Hudson in August 1862, he enlisted in Company H of the 4th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in West Baton Rouge Parish, which fought in Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, Georgia, and Alabama.  Also in the company were his younger brothers Prudent and Joseph Isidore; older brother Joachim, fils also had served in the company but had died at home, probably of pneumonia, earlier in the year.  Louis, perhaps because of his combat experience, was elected junior second lieutenant of his company three months after his enlistment.  He remained with his regiment until he was captured at Nashville, Tennessee, in December 1864.  The federals sent him to the military prison at Louisville, Kentucky, and from there they sent him to the notorious prison compound on Johnson's Island, Ohio, where Confederate officers were held.  Louis remained at Johnson's Island until June 1865, when the federals released him.  He made his way home via Sandusky and Cincinnati, Ohio. 

3d

During the War of 1861-65, Joseph Isidore served in Company H of the 4th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in West Baton Rouge Parish, which fought in Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, Georgia, and Alabama.  He did not enlist in the company until August 1862, after he turned 18; he signed up at Baton Rouge only a few weeks after the battle there.  His older brothers Joachim, fils, Louis, and Prudent also served in the company.  Joseph Isidore was present with his company until he went on sick furlough at Calhoun Station, Lownes County, Alabama, in the late spring of 1864.  He returned to his unit in August and surrendered with it at Meridian, Mississippi, in May 1865.  None of his brothers were still with the unit when it surrendered at Meridian; Joachim, fils had died, Prudent had been wounded in Georgia and spent months in a hospital, and Louis had been captured at Nashville and spent the rest of the war in a prisoner-of-war camp on an island in Lake Erie.  Joseph Isidore married Marie Adonia, called Adonia, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Baptiste Doiron and Rosalie Lejeune, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in June 1867.

3e

During the War of 1861-65, Prudent served in Company H of the 4th Regiment Louisiana Infantry with older brother Joachim, fils.  Prudent enlisted at Camp Moore, Tangipahoa Parish, in May 1861; he was 21 years old.  (Other brothers Louis and Joseph Isidore also served in the company.)  Prudent remained with his company until July 1864, when he was wounded at Ezra Church, Georgia.  He remained in the Confederate hospital at Forsyth, Georgia, probably until the Confederates evacuated the area the following autumn.  Prudent's Confederate service record then falls silent.  Federal forces paroled him as an end-of-the-war prisoner at Baton Rouge in June 1865, so he survived the war. 

4

Louis, perhaps a younger son of Louis-François, married Marie Seguin at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1832.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  One of the witnesses to the marriage was Isidore Daigle[sic], perhaps the groom's brother. 

Descendants of Édouard DAIGRE (1764-1823; Olivier, Olivier, fils, Olivier III)

Édouard, eldest son of Simon-Pierre Daigre and his first wife Marie-Madeleine Thériot, born at Morlaix, France, in January 1764, came to Louisiana with his father, stepmother, and siblings aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785.  He followed them to Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where he married Marie-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadians Charles Henry and Marguerite-Josèphe Trahan, in October 1786.  Marie-Josèphe had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships from France.  They were counted at Baton Rouge in 1792.  In the baptismal record of daughter Marie, born in October 1793 but not baptized until November 1795, Édouard and his wife are described as "residents of this parish," so they must have lived at New Orleans in the mid-1790s before returning to Manchac.  They may also have lived for a time at Assumption on upper Bayou Lafourche.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their daughters married into the Allain, Babin, Hébert, and Martin families.  Édouard died probably in West Baton Rouge Parish in June 1823; he was 59 years old.  

1

Oldest son Édouard, fils, born at Manchac in August 1787, married Agathe, daughter of Michel Betancourt and his Acadian wife Victoire Lavergne, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1816.  Their son Jean Treville, called Treville, was born probably at Manchac in March 1819.  Their daughters married into the Labauve family. 

Treville married Marie or Mary Elizabeth, daughter of Evan D. Yates and Frances Roach, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1851.  Treville Daigle died near Baton Rouge in February 1867; the priest who recorded his burial did not give Treville's parents' names, mention a wife, or even give his age at the time of his death; this Treville would have been 47 years old.

2

Zéphirin, born at Manchac in April 1789, married Marguerite, another daughter of Michel Betancourt and Victoire Lavergne, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1810.  Their son Zéphirin, fils was born posthumously probably at Manchac in May 1825.  Their daughters married into the Deslors, Dupuy, Hébert, and Landry families.  Zéphirin, père died probably at Manchac in November 1824; he was only 35 years old.  

Zéphirin, fils married Azema, daughter of Édouard Bossier and Joséphine Hotard, at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, in November 1866; Zéphirin, fils was 41 years old at the time of the wedding.

3

Youngest son Florentin, born at Manchac in June 1791, probably died young.

Descendants of Joseph-Michel DAIGRE (1776-1833; Olivier, Olivier, fils, Olivier III)

Joseph-Michel, third and youngest son of Simon-Pierre Daigre and his first wife Marie-Madeleine Thériot, born at Bangor, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in  April 1776, came to Louisiana with his father, stepmother, and siblings aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785.  He followed them to Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, and married Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph LeBlanc and Marguerite LeBlanc, at St.-Jacques, farther downriver on the Acadian Coast, in November 1800.  Madeleine was a native of Louisiana.  They settled at Ascension, on the Acadian Coast just above St.-Jacques, and lived for a time at Assumption on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughters married into the Allemand, LeBlanc, Melançon, and Savoie families; one of them settled near Raceland in Lafourche Parish.  Joseph died in Ascension Parish in August 1833; he was 57 years old.  Only half of his four sons seem to have married, and the one who may have had sons of his own settled on Bayou Lafourche. 

1

Oldest son Leufroi, born at Ascension in September 1801, married cousin Emeranthe, daughter of fellow Acadians Paul Melançon and Osite Barbe LeBlanc, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in May 1821; Emeranthe's mother, also, was a LeBlanc; they had to secure dispensation for fourth degree of relationship in order to marry.  Leufroi died in Ascension Parish in September 1832; he was only 31 years old.  Did he father any children?

2

Lucien, born at Ascension in March 1803, may have died young. 

3

Duval, born in Assumption Parish in October 1811, died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in August 1843.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Duval, a native of "one of the parishes along Bayou Lafourche," died at "age 30 yrs."  One wonders if he ever married. 

4

Youngest son Marcel, born in January 1815, place unrecorded, and baptized at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in October 1817, may have been the Marcellus or Marcelle Daigle, also called Degro and Degre, who married Spanish Creole Marie or Maria Hernandez and settled near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, by the late 1840s. 

Descendants of Paul-Olivier DAIGRE (1767-1833; Olivier, Bernard, Pierre, Olivier)

Paul-Olivier, son of Miniac Daigre of L'Assomption, Pigiguit, and his first wife Marie Melanson of Rivière-aux-Canards, was born at Locmaria, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in May 1767.  He was orphaned early and came to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785 with the family of Jean Doiron.  He followed them to Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where he married cousin Marie-Jeanne or -Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadians Pierre Richard and his second wife Françoise Daigre, in September 1788.  Marie-Jeanne also had come to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont.  Paul and Marie-Jeanne's daughters married into the Babin, Brown, Daigre, Kleinpeter, and Templet families.  Paul died near Baton Rouge in November 1833; the priest who recorded his burial said that Paul was 69 years old when he died, but he was "only" 66.  Three of his five sons married and settled in the Baton Rouge area, but none of the lines were very robust. 

1

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste, born at Manchac in December 1790, died probably at Manchac in February 1814.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Jean Baptiste was 21 years old when he died, but he was 23.  He did not marry.  

2

Joseph, born at Manchac in September 1798, may have died young. 

3

Gilbert, baptized at Baton Rouge, age 1 1/2, in August 1801, married Marie Caroline, called Caroline, daughter of Anglo-American Abrah, probably Abraham, Bird, a major planter in the area, and Marie Bowie, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1838; Gilbert was nearly 40 years old at the time of the wedding.  Their son Abraham Lucien Gilbert, perhaps called Gilbert, fils, was born near Baton Rouge in October 1841.  Their daughter married into the Von Phul family.  Gilbert, père died near Baton Rouge in August 1859; he was 59 years old. 

Gilbert, fils may have married Louise Galveston.  Their son Georges Frank was born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in January 1870.

4

Paul, fils, born at Manchac in February 1802, may have married Ann Thompson, also called Gomes, at Manchac in the 1820s.  Their son Paul Dava was born in c1829 and baptized at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, age 11, in April 1840, and William was born in c1831 but died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, at age 9 in August 1839.  Paul, fils died near Baton Rouge in December 1856; the priest who recorded his burial said that Paul died at "age ca. 50 years," but he was 54. 

5

Youngest son Louis, born at Manchac in November 1804, married Isabelle, daughter of Benjamin Jewell and Sara Prevot, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in May 1832.  Their son Benjamin M. was born in c1836 and baptized at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, age 17, in July 1853.

Benjamin M. married cousin Pauline, daughter of Dennis Daigre and Geneviève Buckner, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in June 1859; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Charles Allain was born near Baton Rouge in January 1868, and David in February 1870.

Other DAIGRE/DAIGLEs on the River

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many Daigre/Daigles on the river with known Acadian lines of the family there.  The priests at Baton Rouge were especially negligent in their record keeping:

Ursule-Anne Daigle married Simon, son of Acadian Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc, at Ascension in April 1788.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not bother to give the bride's or the groom's parents' names.  Interestingly, no Ursule-Anne Daigle appears on any of the passenger lists of the Seven Ships expedition.  That Simon's mother's first name was Ursule makes one wonder if the Ascension priest did not inadvertently substitute the groom's mother's name for the bride, or if the name found in the modern record is a transcription error.  There is also the possibility that Ursule-Anne did exist--that she came to Louisiana on one of the Seven Ships but her name was somehow omitted on the passenger list of the ship she took, or that she came to Louisiana from somewhere other than France and not in 1785, or that she was French Creole or French Canadian, not Acadian.  

Baptiste Daigre died in Pointe Coupee Parish in February 1825.  The priest who recorded his burial described Baptiste as a "nat. of New Orleans" and said he was 40 years old when he died.  However, the reverend father did not give Baptiste's parents' names or mention a wife, so one wonders if Baptiste was even Acadian.  

Marie Pauline Daigre married Emeneserie Greffin or Griffin, perhaps an Anglo, probably at Baton Rouge in the 1830s and settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  One of her daughter married into the Broussard family at Brusly in April 1854; Marie Pauline was a widow at the time of the wedding. 

Joséphine Daigre gave birth to son François Xavier near Baton Rouge in October 1837.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the father's name, although a note in the margin of the record says "Barrot."  The priest also did not give the mother's parents' names. 

J. B. Daigre died near Baton Rouge in October 1840.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that J. B. died "at age ca. 30 yrs." 

Célestine Daigre married Spanish Creole Adonis Lopez at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1841.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Arthémise Daigre married Isidore, son of fellow Acadian Maximilien Henry, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in March 1841.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Marie Daigre, an Acadian immigrant, died at "age ca. 70 yrs. ... at Manchac" in December 1842.  The Baton Rouge priest who recorded her burial did not give her parents' names or mention a husband, so one has to wonder which Marie Daigre she was. 

Laurent Daigre died "at a young age ... at Manchac" in October 1843.  The Baton Rouge priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the parents' names or Laurent's exact age. 

Eugène, also called Pierre, Daigre married cousin Marie Zéolide, Zéolie, or Théotiste, daughter of French Creole Jean Tullier and widow of ____ Trahan, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in September 1844; Marie's mother was a Daigre.  Their son Diogène was born near Brusly in December 1847, Amédée in May 1850, and Joseph Maximilien near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish, in October 1855.  Their daughters married into the Broussard and Raffrey families.  The priest who recorded his marriage did not give Eugène's parents' names, so one wonders how he was kin to the other Daigres in the area. 

Denis, Denys, or Dennis Daigre married Geneviève Buckner and settled near Baton Rouge by the early 1840s.  Their son Francis Paul was born near Baton Rouge in January 1850, Denis, fils in February 1853, and Victor Templet in August 1857.  Their daughters married into the Allain, Daigre, and Duplantier families.   The daughter who married a Daigre cousin (Benjamin M., son of Louis) had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry, which may link Dennis to the Acadian Daigres on the river.  But who was Dennis's father? 

Jean Baptiste Clémile, or Clémile Jean Baptiste, Daigre married Spanish Creole Carmelite Anastasia Hernandez.  Their son Dorsin or Drosin Clémile was born near Baton Rouge in February 1851 but died at age 1 1/2 in July 1852, Paul Clémile Gérard in October 1853, Manuel Bruno in October 1857, and Martinez near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish, in August 1864.  Clémile Daigle died near Plaquemine in September 1866; he was only 45 years old; the priest who recorded his burial did not give Clémille's parents' names or mention a wife.  How was Clémille kin to the other Daigre/Daigles in the area?

Charles Daigle married Eliza ____ and settled on Bayou Maringouin, Iberville Parish, by the late 1850s. 

John Daigle married Madeleine _____ and may have worked as an overseer on Fergus Beniston or Peniston's plantation near Baton Rouge in the early 1860s. 

Justine Caroline Daigre married Anglo-American Henry Madison at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in August 1865.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Jo Daigle married Élisabeth ____.  Their son John was born in Ascension Parish in July 1866. 

Isidore Daigle married Julia Gassie and settled near Baton Rouge by 1870. 

LOUISIANA:  LAFOURCHE VALLEY SETTLEMENTS

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

Eustache Daigle of Grand-Pré, age 57, crossed on La Bergère, which reached New Orleans in mid-August.  With him were wife Madeleine Dupuis, age 44, and three children--Jean-Joseph, age 15, Charles-Marc, age 13, and infant Étienne.  Eustache and Madeleine had no more children in Louisiana.  The middle son did not marry, the oldest son married but had no children, so this line of the family was perpetuated by the youngest son, Étienne.  

Marie Daigle, age 45, crossed on La Bergère with husband Jean-Baptiste Barillot, age 52, and four children, ages 19 to 10.  Marie died in Assumption Parish in April 1827; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 97 years old when she died, but she was closer to 87.  

Marie Daigle, age 44, widow of Jean-Baptiste Boudrot, crossed on La Bergère with two children, ages 21 and 11.  Marie remarried to Pierre, son of fellow Acadian Cyprien Theriot and widower of Élisabeth Trahan, at Lafourche in September 1786.  She died by June 1790, when her husband remarried there.  

Isabelle-Luce Daigle, age 24, and sister Marguerite-Félicité, age 17, crossed on La Bergère with the family of Joseph Bourg.  Isabelle married René dit Simon, son of François Simoneau of Lorraine, France, at Lafourche in April 1786 and died there in September 1792, in her early 30s.  Did Marguerite-Félicité ever marry?

Alexis-Jean-Mathurin Daigle, age 22, brother of Isabelle-Luce and Marguerite-Félicité, was a bachelor when he crossed on La Bergère.  He married at Lafourche.  

Marie-Marguerite Daigle, age 23, crossed on La Bergère with husband Isaac Hébert, age 32, and two children, ages 3 and newborn.  Marie Marguerite died in Assumption Parish in February 1821; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 66 years old when she died, but she was "only" 59.  

.

Catherine Daigle, age 56, crossed on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in September.  With her was husband Blaise Thibodeau, age 56, and three children, ages 18, 15, and 10, and a 31-year-old nephew.  Catherine died by January 1788, when her husband was counted at Lafourche without a wife.  

Jean-Baptiste Daigle, age 52, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with wife Marie-Flavie Boudrot, age 46, and two children--Anne-Marie, called Annette, age 15, and Joseph-Marc, age 11.  They had no more children in Louisiana.  Their daughter married into the Landry and LeBlanc families.  Their son also settled on upper Bayou Lafourche and had a large family with many sons.  Anne-Marie died at Assumption in April 1799; he was only 29 years old, so she may have died in childbirth.  

Marguerite Daigle, age 37, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with French husband Lambert Billardin or Villardin, age 40, and three children, ages 10, 6, and 3.  Marguerite died by January 1788, when her husband was counted at Lafourche without a wife.  

Anne Daigle, age 43, widow of Joseph-François Michel, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with two daughters, ages 20 and 15.    

Jean-Baptiste-Alexandre Daigle, age 20, brother of Alexis-Jean-Mathurin, was a bachelor when he crossed alone on Le St.-Rémi.  He married at Lafourche, where he had a large family.  

.

Jean-Baptiste Daigle, age 25, crossed on one of the Seven Ships, probably L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in September.  Aboard that ship was wife Marie LeBlanc, age 27, and two daughters--Marie-Judith, age 1 1/2, & Marguerite-Louise, an infant.  Wife Marie may not have survived the crossing.  Jean-Baptiste settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, where he remarried in April 1786 and where his daughters by his first wife died young.  His second wife gave him five sons. 

.

The Daigles from France created another center of family settlement--actually, the first one--on upper Bayou Lafourche.  During the antebellum period, some of them moved down bayou into Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes (the town of Daigle north of Houma attests to the family's settlement in the area), but most of them remained in Assumption Parish, which held perhaps the largest concentration of family members anywhere in the Bayou State, especially around Paincourtville.  During the late antebellum period, however, some of the Assumption Parish Daigles moved away from the bayou and settled near Pierre Part, north of Lake Verret:

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE (1759-1829; Olivier, Bernard, Abraham)

Jean-Baptiste, son of Jean Daigle and Marie-Judith Durel, born at Cherbourg, France, in December 1759, married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre LeBlanc, at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, France, near Nantes, in March 1783.  Marie was a native of Bristol, England, and had come to France with her family in 1763.  They had two daughters at Chantenay.  Jean-Baptiste most likely came to Louisiana in 1785 aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, with his wife and daughters (his name does not appear on that ship's embarkation list, but he does appear on its debarkation list, which lists the implements he received from the Spanish after his arrival).  His daughters survived the crossing, but Marie may not have, or she may have died soon after reaching the colony.  He took his daughters to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he remarried to Marguerite, daughter of François Simoneau of Lorraine, France, and his Acadian wife Marie-Osite-Anne Corporon of Annapolis Royal, in April 1786.  Marguerite had come to Louisiana in 1766 from Maryland when she was very young.  Jean-Baptiste and Marguerite remained on the upper bayou, where they were counted with his daughters by Marie and a daughter by Marguerite in January 1788.  His daughters by Marie died young, but his daughters by Marguerite married into the Bourque, Cedotal, Daigle, Dupuis, and Trahan families.  Jean Baptiste died in Assumption Parish in March 1829; the Plattenville priest who recorded his burial said that Jean, "husband of Marguerite Samoneau," died at "age 76 yrs.", but he was "only" 70.  Three of his five sons, all from his second marriage, created families of their own.  The oldest son moved to lower Bayou Teche in the 1810s, creating a western branch of the family, but the other two married sons remained on the Lafourche.

~

During the late 1780s and early 1790s, Acadian Daigles from France who had settled on the river joined their cousins, and in one case brothers, on upper Bayou Lafourche, adding two more family lines to the ones already there:

Descendants of Joseph DAIGLE (1770-1836; Olivier, Bernard, Pierre)

Joseph, called Joson, a twin and fifth son of Alexandre Daigle and Élisabeth Granger, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in March 1770, came to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships from France, with his uncle Charles Granger.  He followed his uncle to the Baton Rouge area but did not remain there.  In the late 1780s and early 1790s, he was living with his married sister Isabelle-Luce and her husband, René Simoneaux, at Lafourche, where two of his older brothers also had settled.  In 1795, he was living on the upper bayou with the family of Lucas Landry probably as an engagé.  He married Marie-Marthe, daughter of fellow Acadian Chrysostôme Trahan, at Assumption in October 1800; she was literally the girl next door.  Their daughter married into the Breaux family.  Joseph died in Assumption Parish in July 1836, a widower; he was 66 years old.  Three of his five sons created families in Assumption Parish. 

1

Oldest son Joseph-Clet, born at Assumption in April 1802, married Hortense or Octavie Mélanie, called Mélanie, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Duhon and Adélïde Landry, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1827, and remarried to Bathilde or Mathilde, daughter of Maurice Simoneaux and his Acadian wife Geneviève Landry, at the Plattenville church in January 1834.  Their son Jean Baptiste Basile was born in Assumption Parish in March 1836, and Louis in August 1837.  They also had sons named Désiré and Ozémé.  Their daughters married into the Dugas, LeBlanc, and Vegas families.  Joseph Clet died in Lafourche Parish in December 1862; he was 60 years old.  Was his death war-related? 

1a

Désiré, by his father's second wife, married Flavie, also called Claire, daughter of fellow Acadians Cyrille Landry and Marie Marcellite Gravois, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in September 1858.  They settled near the boundary between Assumption and Ascension parishes.  Their son Denas Désiré, called Désiré, was born in October 1859 but died at age 7 months in May 1860, Lubin Evariste was born in March 1863 but died at age 14 month in early 1864, Désiré Anatole was born in July 1866, and Joseph Jules in March 1869.

1b

Ozémé, by his father's second wife, married Virginie, daughter of fellow Acadians Narcisse Guidry and Virginie Savoie, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1868.

2

Baptiste, born probably at Assumption in c1803, died at age 10 in October 1813.  

3

4

Alexandre Simon, born in Assumption Parish in December 1807, married Justine, another daughter of Maurice Simoneaux and Geneviève Landry, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1835.  Their son Alexandre Cyriague was born in Assumption Parish in August 1838, Aristide Joseph near Plattenville in February 1843, Eugène or Ulgère Raymond in November 1847 but died at age 5 in December 1852, and Joseph Laurent was born near Paincourtville in February 1850 but died at age 2 1/2 in December 1852.  Their daughters married into the Berthelot and Verret families.  Alexandre died near Paincourtville in October 1850; he was only 42 years old. 

4a

Alexandre Cyriague married Carmelite, daughter of Antoine Sanchez and Henriette Sauvain, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in September 1862.  They settled near Pierre Part.  Their son Désiré Alexandre was born in February 1865.  An Alexandre Daigle died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in January 1867; the priest who recorded his burial said that Alexandre died at "age 27 years," but the priest did not bother to give Alexandre's parents' names or mention a wife.  This Alexandre would have been 28 years old, so it probably was him. 

4b

Aristide Joseph married cousin Armentine, daughter of Honoré Simoneaux and Arselie Simoneaux, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1867.

5

Youngest son Pierre Clovis, also called Henri, born in Ascension Parish in January 1812, married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadians Simonet Boudreaux and Céleste Babin, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1834.  Their son Pierre Camille, called Camille, was born in Assumption Parish in October 1835, Simon Oleus, called Oleus, near Plattenville in November 1844, and Édouard Calix, called Calix, in October 1842 but died at age 5 in October 1847.  Their daughter married into the Bourgeois family.

5b

Oleus married Elmire, daughter of fellow Acadians Onésime LeBlanc and Eulalie LeBlanc, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1869.

Descendants of Jean-Louis DAIGLE (1774-1811; Pierre le jeune, Bernard, fils, Bernard, Pierre)

Jean-Louis, son of Jean-Baptiste-Amand Daigle and Marguerite-Ange Dubois, born at Pouthume, Châtellerault, Poitou, France, in October 1774, came to Louisiana with his widowed mother aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785.  He followed her and the majority of the passengers from their ship to Fort Butte, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.  His mother remarried twice.  He followed her to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marie-Isabelle, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Richard and his French wife Marie-Jeanne Daniel, at Assumption in August 1799.  Marie had come to Louisiana on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  They may have lived at New Orleans in the early 1800s.  Jean-Louis remarried to Marie Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph François Michel and Geneviève LeBlanc, at Assumption in January 1804.  Marie Josèphe was a native of Louisiana.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Faits, and Gros families.  Jean Louis died in Assumption Parish in November 1811; he was only 37 years old.  His son from his second marriage survived childhood and created a family of his own in Assumption Parish. 

1

Older son Louis, by his father's first wife, born in September 1800 and baptized at New Orleans in March 1801, died at Assumption, age 1 1/2, in February 1802.

Rosémond married Zulma, also called Rosema, daughter of Rosémond Fremin and his Acadian wife Aglée Thibodeaux, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in October 1866.  Their son Abel Augustin was baptized at the Labadieville church, age unrecorded, in August 1867. 

~

During the late antebellum period, a Daigle from St. James Parish may have moved to Bayou Lafourche:

Descendants of Marcel DAIGLE (1815-; Olivier, Olivier, fils, Olivier III, Simon-Pierre)

Marcel, fourth and youngest son of Joseph-Michel Daigle and Madeleine LeBlanc, born in January 1815, place unrecorded, and baptized at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in October 1817, may have been the Marcellus or Marcelle Daigle, also called Degro and Degre, who married Spanish Creole Marie or Maria Hernandez and settled near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, by the late 1840s.  They had moved down bayou into Lafourche Parish by the early 1850s.  A decade later, however, they were living near Plattenville again.  Their daughters married into the Barrilleaux and LeBlanc families. 

1

Oldest son Joseph was born near Lockport, Lafourche Parish, in November 1853.

2

Nazaire Ozémé was born near Raceland, Lafourche Parish, in July 1855.

3

Prudent Foedora was born near Lockport, Lafourche Parish, in May 1858.    

~

Other DAIGLEs in the Lafourche Valley

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

Joseph Daigle married Charlotte Falgout probably in Lafourche Interior Parish in the late 1810s.  

Joseph, fils, son of Joseph Daigle, died near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, 7 days after his birth in May 1846.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the mother's name, so one must wonder which Joseph Daigle was the father. 

Pierre Daigle died near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in March 1849.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Pierre died "at age 27 years" but did not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  

Pierre Daigle married Ursuline Gautreaux and settled near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, by the early 1850s. 

Henri Oscar Daigle died in Lafourche Parish, age 7 months, in February 1854.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the parents' names. 

Placide Daigle married Spanish Creole Carmelita or Carmelite Suarez.  Their son Joseph Hippolyte was born near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in July 1856, and Joseph Placide in August 1857. 

Ozille, daughter of Pierre Daigle, deceased, and Marguerite Babin, married Léon, son of Acadian Magloire Landry, at Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in February 1857.  Was Pierre an Acadian Daigle?  When, and where, did he marry Marguerite?  And when, and where, did he die?

Treville Daigle married Marceline Masset and settled in Assumption Parish by 1860. 

Adeline Daigle gave birth to son Pierre Osémé near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in December 1860.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names. 

Joseph Daigle died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in June 1865.  The priest who recorded the burial did not give Joseph's parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.  Was Joseph's death war-related? 

Élisabeth Daigle married Julien Napoléon at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in April 1866.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Jean Henri Daigle married Delphine Labiche.  Their daughter married into the Knobloch family in Lafourche Parish in October 1869.  How was Jean Henri kin to the Daigles of the Bayou Lafourche valley, or was he? 

Marie Daigle married Baptiste Plaisance in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in February 1870.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

LOUISIANA:  WESTERN SETTLEMENTS

At least one Acadian Daigle who came to Louisiana from France in 1785 followed her husband to the Opelousas District:

Marguerite Daigle, age 60, crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  With her were husband Pierre Dugas of Cobeguit, age 57, and two daughters, ages 23 and 20.  Marguerite died in St. Landry Parish in March 1808, in her early 80s.   

~

In the 1790s, an Acadian Daigle from Manchac crossed the Atchafalaya Basin and settled on the western prairies, but evidently he and his wife had no children.  A Daigle wife followed in the early antebellum period:

Agnès-Marie Daigle, widow of Thomas Theriot, died at Baton Rouge in February 1812.  The priest who recorded her burial said that she was 73 years old when she died, but she was closer to 60.  Her succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse in April, so she and/or her children probably lived in St. Martin Parish. 

Simon-Pierre DAIGLE, fils (1766-1816?; Olivier, Olivier, fils, Olivier III)

Simon-Pierre, fils, second son of Simon-Pierre Daigle and his first wife Marie-Madeleine Thériot, born at Sauzon, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in June 1766, came to Louisiana with his father, stepmother, and siblings to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  He followed them to Fort Bute, Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, but did not settle there.  In the 1790s, he crossed the Atchafalaya Basin and married Françoise, daughter of fellow Acadian Michel Trahan and widow of Jacques Fostin, at Attakapas in February 1798.  A Simon Daigle, "instituteur [teacher] at Benjamin Broussard's inhabitant on the Lake at Baigneux," died at Agricole Landry's home on the Vermilion River in January 1816.  The priest who recorded his burial did not give Simon's parents' names, his age at the time of his death, or mention a wife.  One wonders if this was Simon-Pierre Daigle, fils; if it was, he would have died at age 50.  He and his wife, who died in the late 1820s, seem to have had no children, so this line of the family did not survive.  

~

Not until the 1810s did an Acadian Daigle, from upper Bayou Lafourche, establish a family line that survived west of the Atchafalaya Basin; he settled in St. Mary Parish on lower Bayou Teche.  A Daigre from Manchac moved to Lafayette Parish in the 1820s but returned to the river in the 1830s.  During the 1840s, another Daigre from Baton Rouge settled on Bayou Teche and raised a large family there.  Two more Daigles from upper Bayou Lafourche moved down to the Brashear City, now Morgan City, area, on the lower Atchafalaya, during the late 1850s, but one of them may have returned to the upper bayou.  A result of all this coming and going was that the western branch of the Acadian Daigre/Daigles never came close in numbers to the French-Canadian Daigles who settled near Church Point in present-day Acadia Parish:  

Descendants of Louis-Maurice DAIGLE (1790-1860s; Olivier, Bernard, Abraham, Jean)

Louis-Maurice, called Maurice, eldest son of Jean-Baptiste Daigle and his second wife Marguerite Simoneaux, born at Ascension on the river in April 1790, married Anastasie, also called Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadians Joseph Breaux and Marie Madeleine Bourg of St. James Parish, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1812.  Later in the decade, they moved from upper Bayou Lafourche to lower Bayou Teche, where they helped establish a western branch of the family in St. Mary Parish.  Their daughters married into the Broussard and Richard families.  Louis's succession record was filed at the Franklin courthouse in January 1861; he would have been 71 years old that year.  Only one of his sons' lines may have survived. 

1

Oldest son Louis, fils, born in St. Mary Parish in February 1821, may have died young, unless it was his succession record that was filed at the Franklin courthouse in January 1861; he would have been 40 years old that year.  If this was him, did he ever marry? 

2

Jean Onésime, called Onésime, born in St. Mary Parish in September 1823, married Pamela, daughter of fellow Acadian Nicolas Broussard and his Creole wife Marie Élisabeth Bertrand, at the Pattersonville church, St. Mary Parish, in August 1853.  Onésime's succession record was filed at the Franklin courthouse in November 1853, a few months after his marriage; he would have been 30 years old that year.  Did he father any children? 

3

Youngest son Marcellin, born in St. Mary Parish in December 1828, married Adelina Palaskki or Polowski, perhaps a Polish immigrant, at the Pattersonville church, St. Mary Parish, in July 1852.  Their son Cleopha was born near Pattersonville in August 1853. 

Descendants of Joseph Maximilien DAIGLE (1810s?-; Olivier, Bernard, Abraham, François-Marie, François-Alexandre, )

Joseph Maximilien, called Maximilien, Maxilien, and Maxille, son of André-Joseph or Joseph-André, also called Béloni, Daigle and Isleño Adélaïde Martin of Baton Rouge, born probably at Baton Rouge in the late 1810s, married cousin Marie Aurore, daughter of fellow Acadians Jean Baptiste Henry and Marie Daigle, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1837; Marie's mother was a Daigle.  Maximilien remarried to Marcellite Ida, called Ida, daughter of fellow Acadians Anaclet Melançon and Anne Doralise Thibodeaux, at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in May 1845.  They remained near New Iberia before moving up the Teche to the Breaux Bridge area later in the decade.  Maximilien remarried again--his third marriage, to Oliva, daughter of Jean Caillier or Cayet and Marie Picou and widow of Acadian Ursin Bijeaux, fils, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1857; Maximilien probably was in his late 40s at the time of the wedding.  Oliva gave him more sons.  Most of the Acadian Daigles west of the Atchafalaya Basin are Maximilien's descendants. 

1

Oldest son Jean Baptiste, called Baptiste and Ldomenie, from his father's first wife, born at either Baton Rouge or New Iberia in the late 1830s or early 1840s, married Émelie or Amelia, daughter of fellow Acadians Léonard Thibodeaux and Ordalie Cormier, at the Breaux Bridge church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1868.

Other DAIGLEs on the Western Prairies

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link at least one Daigle in the western parishes with known Acadian lines of the family there:

Victor Daigle married Élizabeth Daigle and settled near Brashear City, now Morgan City, St. Mary Parish, by 1870. 

NON-ACADIAN FAMILIES in LOUISIANA

Not all of the Daigles of South Louisiana are Acadians.  The first Daigle to settle in Louisiana, in fact, was a Canadian with Austrian-German roots who came decades before Acadian Daigre/Daigles appeared in the colony.  For several generations, the Canadian and his descendants settled at Chapitoulas, just above New Orleans, and then a bit farther upriver at St.-Charles des Allemands on the Lower German Coast.  In the late 1790s, some of his descendants moved to the Opelousas prairie, where they set down even deeper roots in what became St. Landry and Acadia parishes.  Most of the Daigles of southwest Louisiana are descended from these German Canadians, many of whom took Acadian spouses:   

Descendants of Étienne dit Marlborough D'AIGLE (late 1600s-mid 1700s)

Étienne dit Marlborough, son of Jean d'Aigle dit l'Allemand of Vienna, Austria, and Marie-Anne Proteau of Québec, was born at Beauport, near Québec City, after his father came to Canada from France in c1674.  Étienne married Susanne, also called Marie-Anne, Desperoux at Fort Louis, New Biloxi, present-day Mississippi, in March 1722.  They were living across the river from Chapitoulas, just above New Orleans, in the early 1730s.  A decade later, they had moved upriver to St.-Charles des Allemands on the Lower German Coast.  They had at least three sons at Chapitoulas and St.-Charles--Étienne, fils; François, born in November 1729 but died at age 13 at St.-Charles in December 1744; and Joseph l'aîné, born in May 1733 but probably died young.  Étienne dit Marlborough's daughter married into the Roman family.  Étienne dit Marlborough was still alive in August 1752, when he stood as godfather to grandson Étienne III, by his son Étienne, fils, at St.-Charles.  Étienne, fils, born probably at Chapitoulas in the 1720s, married Angélique or Evangéline La Prade probably at St.-Charles des Allemands in the early 1750s.  Their son Étienne III was born at St.-Charles in August 1752, and André in June 1754.  They also had sons named Joseph le jeune; Alexis, who died in 1786; Jean dit Malborough, who became a hunter and trader at Arkansas Post; and François, who married Marie, daughter of Jean Larue of Kaskaskia, Illinois, probably at Arkansas Post in October 1792.  Meanwhile, Joseph le jeune married Marie-Josèphe, daughter of French Creole Jean-Baptiste Duguet, at Pointe Coupée in February 1782.  Their son Jean-Joseph was baptized at Pointe Coupee, age 3 months, in March 1783. 

It was Étienne III who created the most significant line of this family in South Louisiana.  He married Marie-Anne, daughter of Joseph-Michel Rayon, Taillon, or Tayon of Kaskaskia, Illinois, at St.-Louis, present-day Missouri, in August 1777.  After his marriage, Étienne III returned to St.-Charles des Allemands, where he and Marie-Anne had at least four sons, all born at St.-Charles:  Étienne IV, born in c1778, Chevalier Joseph or Joseph Chevalier, Alexandre, and Jean-Eugène, born in c1791.  Their daughter married into the Latiolais family.  Étienne III died at St.-Jacques on the Acadian Coast, upriver from St.-Charles, in December 1796; the Spanish priest who recorded his burial said that "Estevan" died at "age 58 years & [was] married of the Parish of St. Charles," but he was only 44.  After his death, Étienne III's widow sold her holdings at St.-Charles and moved the family to the Opelousas District.  They settled on upper Bayou Plaquemine Brûlé near present-day Church Point, Acadia Parish, where three family lines thrived: 

1

Étienne IV, probably the oldest son, married Marie, daughter of Acadian Pierre Doucet, at Opelousas in June 1803.  They settled on upper Bayou Plaquemine Brûlé near present-day Church Point.  Their son Étienne V was born in October 1806, Jean Eugène le jeune, called Eugène, in April 1809, Joseph Chevalier le jeune, also called Joseph Étienne, in December 1812, and Arthur in December 1816.  Their daughter married into the Fontenot family.  Étienne IV may have remarried to Marie Anne Taylor.  Their daughter married into the Delbourg family.  Étienne IV died near Church Point in June 1864; he was 86 years old.

Zéphirin married first cousin Constance, daughter of French Creole Leufroi Fontenot, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in January 1854; Constance's mother was Zéphirin's paternal aunt, Gertrude Daigle.  Zéphirin and Constance settled near Church Point.  Their son Joseph Colomb was born in April 1855 but died at age 7 in September 1862, and Joseph was born in March 1860. 

Eugène le jeune married cousin Julia, daughter Acadian Michel Leger, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in November 1855.  They settled near Church Point.

1c

Joseph Étienne, by his father's first wife, married Marie Amante, Aminta, Aminte, Aminthe, or Amynte, daughter of French Creole Antoine Fontenot, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in May 1829.  They settled near Church Point.  Their son Eugène Joseph was born in April 1830, Arthur in January 1842, Étienne in March 1846 but died at age 12 1/2 in September 1858, Alfred Abraham, perhaps called Hebrard, was born in November 1848, and Jules in October 1851.  Their daughters married into the Leger and Olivier (French Creole, not Acadian) families. 

Eugène Joseph married Marie Louse, called Louise, daughter of Acadian Joseph Rosémond Guidry, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in July 1857.  They settled near Church Point.  Their son Eugène, fils was born in July 1858.  Eugène Joseph died near Church Point in July 1858; the priest who recorded his burial said that Eugène J. died "at age 32 yrs.," but he was only 28; his succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse the following December.  His only son was born the day before he died. 

Arthur married Caroline, daughter of Acadian Michel Leger, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in July 1861.  They settled near Church Point.  Their son Thomas was born in July 1862.

Youngest son Jean Eugène died "instantly from a terrible fall off a horse" in St. Landry Parish in August 1817.  He was only 26 years old and did not marry.  

.

Local church and civil records make it difficult to link some Daigles in St. Landry Parish with descendants of Étienne dit Marlborough D'Aigle:

Joséphine, daughter of Antoine Daigle, fils, died in St. Landry Parish in February 1842.  The Opelousas priest who recorded Joséphine's burial did not give her mother's name or her age at the time of her death.  How was her father kin to the other Daigles in the area?

Marie Laure, called Laure, Daigle married Anglo-American William Elkins at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in January 1847.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Marie Céleste Daigle married Onésime Fontenot in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in November 1861.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.

Étienne Daigle married Napoléon[sic] Frugé in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in May 1867.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  What was the bride's actual name? 

Rachel Daigle married French Creole Cyprien Fontenot in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in June 1870.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.

~

Other Daigles who lived in South Louisiana during the antebellum period may have been non-Acadians, or they may have been Acadian refugees from the Caribbean Basin who came "late" to the Bayou State:

Marie, 16-year-old daughter of Louis Daigle and Marie Weber of Barraco, Cuba, married Joseph, 28-year-old son of French Creole Joseph Monson or Munson of New Orleans, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1823.  They also registered the marriage in Terrebonne Parish in January 1830, and sanctified the marriage at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in April 1835.  Marie remarried to Pierre Urbain, son of French Creole Pierre André Augeron of New Orleans, at the Thibodaux church in July 1844.  There is a possibility that Marie and her parents may have been Acadian refugees from Haiti who left that troubled land for Cuba in the early 1800s.  The Lafourche Interior Parish clerk who recorded her first marriage says that Marie, herself, was from Barraco, implying that she was born there.  Her estimated birth year based on the age given in that record--c1806-07--hints that her family may have been among the refugees from Haiti via Cuba and Jamaica who reached New Orleans in the summer and fall of 1809.  Professor Carl A Brasseaux has written of these refugees:   "An undetermined number of Acadians were undoubtedly among the approximately 10,000 refugees from Saint-Domingue who arrived en masse in New Orleans in the summer and fall of 1809.  The evidence indicates, however, that these latter-day Acadian immigrants had already lost much of their ethnic identity and, when forced by circumstances to remain in New Orleans, they were quickly absorbed into the Crescent City's flourishing Creole community."  Perhaps Marie's living in a predominantly Acadian community suggests that she may have considered herself a part of that community, though she did marry two French Creoles from New Orleans.  However, such a marriage was not unusual even among Acadians who came to Louisiana by more traditional routes.  Judging by Terrebonne Parish court records, she and her husband(s) did well in that parish. 

Antoine Daigle "from Isle of Nebe" died in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1834.  He was only 39 years old.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded Antoine's burial did not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  Where is the "Isle of Nebe"?  Was it Nevis in the Windward Islands, a British possession?  Was Antoine the son of an Acadian refugee who settled, like hundreds of other Acadians, in the Caribbean Basin? 

~

A D'Aigle who lived near Baton Rouge during the late antebellum period may not have been an Acadian:

Zeno D'Aigle married Hanna Rollands.  Their son Susanno was born near Baton Rouge, East Baton Rouge Parish, in December 1850. 

~

During the War of 1861-65, Afro-Creoles owned probably by French Canadian Daigles were set free by Federal forces and settled in St. Landry Parish:

Michel Daigle, a freedman, married Élizabeth Guidry, a freed woman, 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. 

CONCLUSION

Daigres were among the early settlers of Acadia, but most of them came "late" to Louisiana.  In fact, if the Spanish government had not coaxed over 1,500 Acadians in France to emigrate to the colony, the Acadian branch of the Daigre/Daigle family would be a small one today in the Bayou State, if it existed there at all.  The first member of the family to emigrate to Louisiana--Agnès-Marie, a teenage orphan from Minas--came from Halifax via Cap-Français, French St.-Domingue in 1765 and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques on the Acadian Coast before moving up to Baton Rouge.  Not until nearly two decades later, in 1785, did more Acadian Daigre/Daigles reach the colony--58 of them, including nearly a dozen families, aboard six of the Seven Ships from France.  They settled on the river above and below New Orleans, most of them at Manchac at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District; and some in the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores north of Baton Rouge, which they abandoned in the early 1790s.  During the following decades, these river families settled along the entire length of the old Acadian Coast in what became East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Iberville, Ascension, and St. James parishes.  They were especially numerous in the Baton Rouge/Manchac area. 

Acadian Daigles from France also settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, which became a second important center of family settlement that eventually stretched all the way down into the Terrebonne country.  (The town of Daigle north of Houma attests to the family's settlement there.)  Most of the Lafourche valley Daigles, however, remained in Assumption Parish, especially around Paincourtville.  During the late antebellum and immediate post-war periods, some of them left the bayou and settled near Pierre Part, north of Lake Verret. 

In the late 1790s, a Daigle from the river crossed the Atchafalaya Basin and settled in the Attakapas District, but his line did not survive.  During the antebellum period, Daigles from Assumption and the Baton Rouge area settled on Bayou Teche and created a small western branch of the family.  Late in the period, a few of their cousins from Assumption moved to the Brashear, now Morgan, City area, on the lower Atchafalaya, but the number of Acadian Daigles west of the Basin remained small in comparison to their cousins on the river and in the Lafourche/Terrebonne valley. 

Not all of the Daigles of South Louisiana are descendants of Olivier Daigre of Port-Royal.  Étienne dit Marlborough d'Aigle, a French-Canadian with German-Austrian roots, came to the colony in the 1720s, decades before his Acadian namesakes, and settled across from Chapitoulas just upriver from New Orleans before moving to St.-Charles des Allemands on the Lower German Coast.  By the early 1800s, some of his great-grandsons had crossed the Atchafalaya Basin to the Opelousas prairies and settled along upper Bayou Plaquemine Brûlé near present-day Church Point.  Most of the Daigles of southwest Louisiana are descended from these French Canadians, some of whom took Acadian wives soon after they reached the prairies.  Other non-Acadian Daigles may have lived on the river and in the Bayou Lafourche valley during the antebellum period, further complicating the family's genealogy.  ...

Dozens of Daigres and Daigles, both Acadian and French Canadian, served Louisiana in uniform during the War of 1861-65.  At least two of them died in Confederate service, both from disease. ...

In Acadia and during Le Grand Dérangement, the family's surname evolved from Daigre to Daigle, though many members of the family, especially in the Baton Rouge area, retained the original spelling.  In Louisiana, the family's name also is spelled Aigle, D'aigle, D'aigre, D'aigrin, Daigue, Daygle, Deagle, Degg, Degle, D'egle, Deglet, Degre, Degue, Degues, Deigue, Desgre, Deygle, Diegle, Digue.  [See Book Ten for the Acadian family's Louisiana "begats"]

NOTES

01.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls her Adélaïde [DAIGLE], & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 34-35, calls her Adélaïde, sa [Francois DAIGLE's] fille, age 15, on the embarkation list, Adelaida, su [Franco D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Adélaïde DAIGLE, his [Francois DAIGLE's] daughter, age 15, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 16th Family aboard Le Beaumont with her parents & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:214, 709-10 (PCP-19, 35), her marriage record, calls her Flore-Adélaïde DAIGRE "of Havre," calls her husband John Charles TOULIER "of Cherbourg, Normandy," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph VAHAMORNDE & Charles BROUSSARD.

Her marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because Baton Rouge did not have a church of its own until 1793, so priests from Pointe Coupée would administer the sacraments there until Baton Rouge got a priest of its own. 

02.  Wall of Names, 15, calls her Agnès-Marie DAIGLE, & lists her singly; Arsenault, Généalogie, 946, the Beaubassin section, calls her Agnès, says she was born in 1751, daughter of Paul, son of Pierre DAIGLE & Anne ARSENEAULT, & Marie, daughter of Joseph HÉBERT & Anne BOUDROT, & says her parents were married at Beaubassin on 19 Jun 1748; BRDR, 2:218, 693 (SJA-1, 14a), her marriage record, calls her Marie DAIGUE, calls her husband Thomas THERIOT, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Jean-Baptiste BERGERON & Jacque MELANÇON, who made their marks; BRDR, 3:233 (SJO-4, 60), her burial record, calls her Agnès DAIGLE, age 73 yrs. of Acadia, wid. Thomas TERRIOULT, but does not give her parents' names; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:253 (SM Ct.Hse.: Succ.#109), her succession record, calls her Agnès DAIGLE m. Thomas THERIOT, gives her death date, & lists her children, including their spouses.  See also De La Roque, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:155; Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 111. 

She was the only member of her immediate family to go to LA.  Her family was on Île St.-Jean in Aug 1752, having gone there in c1750.  See De La Roque.  They probably were still on the island when the British rounded up the Acadians in NS in the fall of 1755.  Note that in 1769 Agnès was counted at Cabanocé with cousin Joseph SONNIER, who had come to LA from Halifax in 1765.  It makes more sense that she also would have come to LA then.  Her family, along with most of the Acadians at Malpèque, likely escaped the round up on Île St.-Jean in 1758, made their way to present-day eastern NB, were captured by, or surrendered to, the British a year or 2 later, held as prisoners of war in NS, & she, at age 14, perhaps the sole surviving member of her immediate family, emigrated to LA with other Acadians being held in NS.  A clue that the family was still on Île St.-Jean in 1756 is the birth that year of son Fabien.  See Arsenault. 

Where did she die, Baton Rouge or St. Martin Parish?  Since her succession record, filed in St. Martin Parish, emphasizes her children, she probably died in Baton Rouge while her children were living in St. Martin.  

03.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls him Alexis DAIGLE, & lists him singly; Arsenault, Gènèalogie, 2469, calls him Alexis DAIGRE, does not give his parents' names, details his marriage, calls his wife Marie LEBRUN, but does not give her parents' names or the names of his children; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 93, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Alexis-Maturin DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Alexis GAUTRAUX & Marguerite GRANGER; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 231-32, Family No. 286, calls him Alexis-Maturin DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, details his birth/baptism, gives his godparents' names, & says his family resided at St.-Servan from 1766-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 22-23, calls him Alexis DAIGLE, graveur, age 22, on the embarkation list, Alexis DAIGLE, on the debarkation list, & Alexis DAIGLE, engraver, age 22, on the complete listing, says he was in the 54th "Family" aboard La Bergère with no one else, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to him after he reached LA; BRDR, 2:212, 487 (ASC-2, 12), his marriage record, calls him Alexis DAIGLE, calls his wife Marie LEBRON, does not give his or her parents' names but says they were Acadians, & that the witness to his marriage was François LANDRY; BRDR, 3:240 (ASM-3, 107), his death/burial record, calls him Maturino DAIGLE, age 50 yrs. of Acadia, widower of Marie LEBRON, & gives his parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 493; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 24, 66, 105, 119, 163.

The "Jean" in his name comes from the Ascension census of 1788.  

The birth/baptismal record of son Mathurin, fils, dated 5 May 1800, in BRDR, 2:218 (ASM-1, 168), says the boy's parents were from "Bolonia in Picardia," which is Picardy in northern France.  A LEVRON birth record in BRDR, 2:487 (ASM-1, 172), says that Marie's brother Alexis also was "of Bolonia in Picordia."  The birth/baptismal record of daughter Marie-Claire, dated 18 Mar 1797, in NOAR, 6:70 (SLC, B14, 26), says the girl's parents were "natives of Boulogne-sur-mer in Picardy in France."  So there is no question that Alexis & Marie were from the same town in Picardy.  

His & his wife's parents' names are from the birth/baptismal  records of son Mathurin, fils & daughter Marie-Claire, cited above, both of which call him Maturino.

Notice that he & Marie came to LA aboard different vessels.  Did they know one another in their childhood at Boulogne-sur-Mer?  

Why were Mathurin & his family in New Orleans in early 1797?  On business?  

04.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 10L), calls her Anne DAIGLE veuve MICHEL, & lists her with 2 daughters, with the notation:  suplement a la liste des Acadiens embarques dans le navire Le St. Remy pour la Nouvelle Orleans [additional list of Acadians embarked on the ship Le St.-Rémi bound for New Orleans]; BRDR, 1a(rev.):53 (SGA-3, 18a), perhaps her birth/baptismal record, calls her Anne DAIGRE, gives her parents' names, & says her godparents were Paul RICHART & Madeleine DAIGRE; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 621-23, Family No. 719, calls her Anne DAIGLE, says she was born in c1743 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, details her marriage, calls her husband François MICHEL, says he was born in c1733 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, says they married in c1762 in England, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Joseph-Marie MICHEL, born & baptized 31 Oct 1763, St.-Servan, godson of Jean DAIGLE, his uncle, & Marie DUPLESSIX, died 8 Apr 1767, age 4, buried 9 Apr 1797, St.-Servan, daughter Marie-Madeleine MICHEL, born 25 Feb 1765, baptized 26 Feb 1765, St.-Servan, goddaughter of Olivier ROY & Madeleine LEBLANC, daughter Rose-Marguerite MICHEL, born & baptized 3 Mar 1766, St.-Servan, goddaughter of Charles GRANGER & Marie-Rose DAIGLE, son Jean-Pierre MICHEL, born & baptized 27 Jun 1767, St.-Servan, godson of Joseph BELMERE & Marguerite GAUTROT, died 6 Aug 1772, age 5, buried 7 Aug 1772, St.-Servan, daughter Ann-Marguerite MICHEL, born & baptized 8 Jul 1768, St.-Servan, goddaughter of Francois BOUDROT & Marguerite BOUDROT, daughter Anne-Josèphe MICHEL, born 20 Jan 1770, baptized 21 Jan 1770, St.-Servan, goddaughter of Joseph DUBOIS & Marguerite DUBOIS, daughter Victoire-Euprhosine MICHEL, born 16 Jun 1771, baptized 17 Jun 1771, St.-Servan, goddaughter of Louis-Marie DUBOIS & Marie LEBLANC, & son François MICHEL, born & baptized 3 Oct 1773, St.-Servan, godson of Jacques LEMAIRE & Michelle PONGIRARD, says she & her husband "disembarked at St.-Malo from England on May 22, 1763 from the ship, L'Ambition," & that her family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 77-78, Family No. 152, calls her Anne DAIGLE, says she was born in c1743 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, details her marriage, calls her husband Francois MICHEL, says he was born in c1733 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, says they married in c1762 in England, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial record of daughter Rose-Marguerite MICHEL, born & baptized 3 Mar 1766, St.-Servan, goddaughter of Charles GRANGER & Marie-Rose DAIGLE, died age 9 & buried 22 Nov 1774, St.-Jean-L'Evangeliste, Châtellerault, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 131-32, Family No. 240, calls her Anne DAIGLE, says she was born in c1743 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, details her marriage, calls her husband Francois MICHEL, says he was born in c1733 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, says they married in c1763 in Southampton, England, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Marguerite MICHEL, died age 8 & buried 26 Jan 1776, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, son Francois MICHEL, died age 4 & buried 8 Oct 1777, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, son Francois MICHEL, baptized 18 Mar 1780, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, died age 4 & buried 7 Jan 1784, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & daughter Euphrosine MICHEL, died age 13 & buried 21 Apr 1784, 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, 60-61, calls her Anne DAIGLE, veuve MICHEL, age 43, on the embarkation list, & Anne DAIGLE, widow MICHEL, age 43, on the complete listing, says she was in the 5th Family on Supplément à la liste des Acadiens embarqués dans le navire Le Saint-Rémi pour la nouvelle-orleans [Additional list of Acadians embarked on the ship Le Saint-Rémi bound for New Orleans] with 2 daughters, details her marriage, does not include her or her husband's parents' names, says they married in c1762 but gives no place of marriage, & says daughter Anne MICHEL was born in 1770 but gives no birthplace.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 503; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 29.

Her perhaps being the Anne, daughter of Joseph DAIGRE & Madeleine GAUTROT of Grand-Pré, is based on the following assumptions:  First, the birth date of Anne, daughter of Joseph, fits exactly the ages given for this Anne on the passenger list of Le St.-Rémi & the Lafourche census of Jan 1788.  Second, she married her husband in England, which means she was exiled to VA in 1755, which means she came from the Minas Basin.  Third, her name fits. 

Who were her husband's parents? 

According to Robichaux's studies of the Acadian exiles in France, cited above, she & her husband had, between 1763 & 1780, 9 children in France, 4 sons & 5 daughters.  Seven of them--all of their sons & 3 of their daughters--died young; only 2 of their daughters survived to marry & create families of their own.  On top of that, her husband died on the eve of their going to LA in 1785.  Needless to say, she was a long-suffering woman.  

Who was the unnamed son with her, her husband, & 2 daughters at Nantes in Sep 1784?  A 10th child who died in infancy?  

05.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls her Anne [DAIGLE], & lists her with her parents & a brother; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 243-44, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Anne-Marie DAIGLE, gives her parents' names, says she was the goddaughter of Joseph DUPUIS & Anne DUGAST, & that her family resided at Plouër from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 29, Family No. 59, details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement in the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 46, Family No. 89, calls her Anne [DAIGLE], & 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, 54-55, calls her Anne, sa [Jean-Bte DAIGLE's] fille, age 15, on the embarkation list, & Anne DAIGLE, his [Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE's] daughter, age 15, on the complete listing, says she was in the 49th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her parents & a brother, &, calling her Anne, says she was born in 1769 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:219, 484 (ASC-2, 13), the record of perhaps her first marriage, calls her Ursule-Anne DAIGLE, calls her husband Simon LE BLANC, does not give her or his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Isaac HÉBERT & Jean DAEGLE; BRDR, 2:212, 432 (ASC-2, 28), the record of perhaps her second marriage, calls her Ana DAIGLE, calls her husband Juan Pedro LANDRY, gives her & his parents' names but not the name of his first wife, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph LANDRY, Juan RICHARD, & Joseph DAIGLE [her brother]; BRDR, 2:212 (ASM-3, 19), her death/burial record, calls her Ana DAIGLE, "age 29 years, spouse of Juan Pedro LANDRY," gives the year 1793 with the notation "1799 intended," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 25.

She & her brother Joseph-Marc were the only ones of their parents' 8 children to survive childhood & create families of their own.  

Her marriage to Simon LEBLANC is pure guess work based on process of elimination & a few tantalizing pieces of evidence (but no thanks to the Ascension priest who recorded the marriage).  If Simon was her first husband, what happened to son Joseph LEBLANC, born at Ascension in Aug 1789?  See his baptismal record, dated 20 Sep 1789, in BRDR, 2:469 (ASC-5, 29), which calls his parents Simon LEBLANC & Anna DAIGLE of France.  The boy's godfather was Joseph DAIGLE, probably her brother Joseph-Marc.

Why did she died so young?  From complications of child birth?

06.  Wall of Names, 43, calls her Anne DAIGLE.  See also <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 65; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 141-44, Family No. 171; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 238-40, Family No. 293; & the footnote to her sister Marie's profile.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:103. 

07.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls her Anne-Geneviève [DAIGRE], & lists her with her father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 558, calls her Anne-Geneviève DAIGRE, gives her birth date but not her birthplace, gives her parents' names, says "the family was held at Falmouth, England, entered France at Morlaix," that her family was No. 27 at Kervellant, Sauzon, Belle-Île-en-Mer, in 1765, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, call her Anne-Geneviève, sa [Simon DAIGRE's] fille, age 22, on the embarkation list, Ana Genoveva, su [Simon D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Anne-Geneviève DAIGLE, his [Simon DAIGLE's] daughter, age 22, on the complete listing, & says s he was in the 1st Family aboard Le Beaumont with her father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; BRDR, 2:212, 705 (SGA-14, 3, #7), her marriage record, calls her Ana Genovefa DAIGLE, calls her husband Juan-Baptiste TRAHANT, gives her & his parents' names, says both sets of parents were "of England," but gives no witnesses to her marriage.

She & her husband were living on the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District when they married in May 1786.  Their marriage was recorded at St.-Gabriel because there was no church at Baton Rouge until 1793, so couples in the Baton Rouge area were married by priests either from Pointe Coupée, upriver, or St.-Gabriel, downriver.  

Try this for a little romance Acadian style:  She & her husband were both born at Falmouth, England, a year apart, both repatriated to Morlaix, France, in the spring of 1763 when they were very young, both lived on Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, for a decade or so, both came to LA aboard the same vessel, & both settled in the same community after they got there, so it is a safe bet that they knew one another since early childhood.  Note also that her younger sister married his younger brother.  This is not a unique story among our Acadian ancestors, cheres.  

08.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls her Catherine DEGLE, & lists her with her husband, 3 children, & a nephew;  <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 169, shows the fate of her family in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, detailed in the footnote for her husband's profile; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 238-40, Family No. 293, if this is her, calls her Catherine DAIGLE, gives her parents' names, says she was born in c1729 but does not give her husband's name or details of their marriage; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 753-55, Family No. 881, calls her Catherine DAIGLE, says she was born in c1729 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, says she married in c1752 but gives no place of marriage, says her husband also was born in c1729 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal or death/burial records of son Firmin [THIBODAUX], born c1753 but gives no birthplace, died at sea during crossing to France, 1758-59, daughter Marie [THIBODAUX], born c1754 but gives no birthplace, died at sea during crossing to France, 1758-59, son Charles-Isaac [THIBODAUX], born 9 Nov 1756, baptized 2 Oct 1757, St.-Pierre-du-Nord, Île St.-Jean, godson of Joseph LEBLANC & Marie-Rosalie DAIGLE, died at sea during crossing to France, 1758-59, son Jean-Baptiste [THIBODAUX], born 15 Jan 1758, baptized 6 Apr 1758, St.-Pierre-du-Nord, Île St.-Jean, godson of Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE & Marie-Madeleine OUDY, died at sea during crossing to France, 1758-59, son Firmin-Charles [THIBODAUX], born 20 Apr 1760, Mordreux, France, baptized 20 Apr 1760, Pleudihen, France, godson of Paul DAIGLE & Marie DAIGLE, daughter Marie-Marguerite [THIBODAUX], born 4 Sep 1761, Mordreux, baptized 5 Sep 1761, Pleudihen, goddaughter of Jean DAIGLE & Madeleine THIBODAUX, died age "about 2" 24 July 1763, Mordreux, buried 25 Jul 1763, Pleudihen, daughter Olive-Félicité [THIBODAUX], born 24 Jul 1763, Mordreux, baptized 24 Jul 1763, Pleudihen, goddaughter of Olivier BARILLOT & Félicité DAIGLE, died age 5 19 Jul 1768, Mordreux, buried 20 Jul 1768, Pleudihen, daughter Jeanne-Antoinette [THIBODAUX], born 30 Dec 1764, Mordreux, baptized 30 Dec 1764, Pleudihen, goddaughter of Honoré TÉRRIOT & Madeleine GAUTROT, died 8 Sep 1766, Mordreux, buried 9 Sep 1766, Pleudihen, son Francois-Jean [THIBODAUX], born 20 Oct 1767, Mordreux, baptized 20 Oct 1767, Pleudihen, godson of François BOURG & Anne THIBODAUX, his aunt, son Joseph-Marie [THIBODAUX], born 13 Apr 1769, La Ville de la Villeger, baptized 14 Apr 1769, Pleudihen, godson of Joseph AUCOIN & Marie TÉRRIOT, & daughter Élizabeth-Jeanne [THIBODAUX], born 19 Nov 1770, La Ville de la Villeger, baptized 19 Nov 1770, Pleudihen, goddaughter of Jean BOURG & Élizabeth BROUSSARD, says she & her husband disembarked at St.-Malo 23 Jan 1759 from one of the Five Ships, & the family resided at Pleudihen from 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 159, Family No. 286, calls her Catherine DAIGLE, says she was born in c1725 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, says she married in c1757 but gives no place of marriage, says her husband also was born in c1765 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, includes the death/burial record of daughter Jeanne [THIBODAUX], died age 14 & buried 23 Jun 1778, St.-Pierre, Réze, & birth/baptismal record of son Firmin [THIBODAUX], born 20 Apr 1760, Pleudihen, later resident of 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, 50-51, calls her Catherine DEGLE, sa [Blais THIBODAU's] femme, age 60, on the embarkation list, & Catherine DAIGLE, his [Blaise THIBODEAUX's] wife, age 60, on the complete listing, says she was in the 36th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her husband, 3 children, & a nephew, details her marriage, gives her parents'  names but not her parents' names, & says they married in c1762 but gives no place of marriage.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:103; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 44; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 495.

Due to so many variations in her age in primary sources, I use the earliest source here, the ship's list from 1758-59, to calculate her estimated birth year.  

Did she survive the voyage to LA?  The debarkation list for Le St.-Rémi did not survive unfortunately, so she may not have survived the crossing.  If I find evidence that she did not make it to LA, I will remove her from this list.  

09.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls him Charles DAIGRE, & lists him with his wife & no children; BRDR, 1a(rev.):54 (SGA-2, 112), perhaps his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles DAIGRE, gives his parents' names, says they were "of Pigiguit," that his godparents were Jean DAIGLE & Angélique RICHART, & notes: "DAIGRE written over DAIGLE"; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 85, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59 he & his first wife, Anne-Marie VINCENT, had no children when they crossed; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 233, Family No. 288, calls him Charles DAIGLE, ploughman, says he was born in c1730 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, says he married his first wife in c1758 but gives no place of marriage, that they reached St.-Malo aboard one of the 5 ships in Jan 1759, & lived at Trigavou from 1759-72, but shows no children born to them there; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 10-11, calls him Charles D'AIGRE, poulican, age 54, on the embarkation list, Carlos DAIGRE, on the debarkation list, & Charles DAIGLE, pulley maker, age 54, on the complete listing, says he was in the 31st Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his first wife & no children, & details his first marriage but does not give the names of his or his wife's parents; BRDR, 2:116, 213 (SGA-14, 1, #2), the record of his second marriage, calls him Carlos DAIGLE, "widower of Ana VINCENT," calls his wife Maria BOUDROS, "widow Maxin DUGAS," does not give his or her parents' names but says that they were "all natives of the Parish of the Holy Family [Pigiguit] in Acadia," & gives no witnesses to his marriage.

His being perhaps the son of Charles DAIGRE & François DOUCET of Ste.-Famille, Pigiguit, is based on the following assumptions:  First, the birth date for Charles, son of Charles of Ste.-Famille, fits the ages given for this Charles on the passenger list of the Five Ships of 1758-59 & of La Bon Papa in 1785.  Second, the names fit. 

He & his first wife were that rare Acadian couple who had no children.  She died within weeks of their arrival in LA, perhaps from the rigors of the crossing.  He & his second wife were in Families No. 31 & 32 aboard Le Bon Papa, so they probably had known one another in France, &, since they were both natives of Ste.-Famille Parish, Pigiguit, may have known one another in British Nova Scotia as well.

10.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Charles [DAIGRE], & lists him with his parents & 2 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 234-35, Family No. 290, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles-Marc DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Charles DUGAST & Marguerite DUPUIS; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 43-44, Family No. 85; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls him Charles, son [Eustache DAIGRE's] fils, age 13, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Charles DAIGLE, his [Eustache DAIGLE's] son, age 13, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 67th Family aboard La Bergère with his parents & 2 brothers.  

Evidently he never married.  

11.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Edouard [DAIGRE], & lists him with his father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 93-94, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Édouard DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Paul DAIGRE & Isabelle TERIO; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 558, calls him Édouard DAIGRE, gives his birth date but not birthplace, gives his parents' names, says his family was No. 27 at Kervellant, Sauzon, Belle-Île-en-Mer, in 1765, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls him Edouard, son [Simon DAIGRE's] fils, charpentier, age 21, on the embarkation list, Eduardo, su [Simon D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Édouard DAIGLE, his [Simon DAIGLE's] son, carpenter, age 21, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 1st Family aboard Le Beaumont with his father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; BRDR, 2:213, 377 (PCP-19, 5), his marriage record, calls him Édouardo DAIGRE "of Morles," calls his wife Marie HENRY "of St.-Malo," gives his & her parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Louis Dantilly BERTAIN, Pierre LEDOUX, & Antoine BORDELON; BRDR, 4:146 (SJO-11, 6), probably his death/burial record, calls him Édouard DAIGLE, but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or his age at the time of his death.

Their marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because there was no church at Baton Rouge until 1793, so couples in the Baton Rouge District were married by priests either from Pointe Coupée, upriver, or St.-Gabriel, downriver, until Baton Rouge got its own church.  

In the baptismal record of daughter Marie, born in Oct 1793 but not baptized until 5 Nov 1795, at New Orleans, Édouard and his wife are described as "residents of this parish," so they must have lived in the city before moving on to Bayou Lafourche.  See NOAR, 5:94 (SLC, B11, 392).  They appear in the Assumption census of Dec 1795, so they must have left the city soon after Marie's baptism.  They returned to the Baton Rouge area, however.  

12.  Wall of Names, 32, calls her Élisabeth [DAIGRE], & lists her with her father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, call her Élisabette, sa [Simon DAIGRE's] fille, age 13, on the embarkation list, Ysabel, su [Simon D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Élizabeth DAIGLE, his [Simon DAIGLE's] daughter, age 13, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 1st Family aboard Le Beaumont with her father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; BRDR, 2:213, 707 (PCP-19, 27), her marriage record, calls her Elisabette DAIGRE "of France," calls her husband Paul-Raimond TRAHANT "of France," gives her & her his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Jean-Baptiste DAIGRE & Louis DAIGRE.

Her marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because there was no church at Baton Rouge until 1793, so couples in the Baton Rouge District were married by priests either from Pointe Coupée, upriver, or St.-Gabriel, downriver, until Baton Rouge got its own church.  

For a glimpse into the "inevitability" of their union, see the end note for her sister Anne-Geneviève's profile, above.  

13.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8R), calls her Émelie-Adélaïde [DAIGLE], & lists her with her parents & brother; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 45, Family No. 86, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Émilie-Adélaïde DAIGLE but does not give her godparents' names, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls her Émelie-Adélaïde, sa [Francois-Alexandre DAIGLE's] fille, age 1, on the embarkation list, Emilia Adelaida, su [Franco Alexandro D'AIGLE's] hija, on the debarkation list, & Émelie-Adélaïde DAIGLE, his [François-Alexandre DAIGLE's] daughter, age 1, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 23rd Family on the embarkation list & the 24th Family of the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with her parents & a brother; BRDR, 3:233, 409 (SJO-3, 48), her marriage record, calls her Adélaïde Emelia DAGLE, calls her husband Estevan HÉBERRE, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Francisco ARBOUR [her uncle-in-law] & Donato HÉBERRE; BRDR, 7:145 (SJB-Brusly-4, 27), her death/burial record, calls her Émelie DAIGLE, "age 70 yrs., spouse Étienne HÉBERT," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 505, 525.

She was "only" 67 years old when she died.  Was she a widow?  She was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

14.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Étienne [DAIGRE], & lists him with his parents & 2 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 43-44, Family No. 85; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls him Étienne, son [Eustache DAIGRE's] fils, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Étienne DAIGLE, his [Eustache DAIGLE's] son, nursling, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 67th Family aboard La Bergère with his parents & 2 brothers; BRDR, 3:235, 500 (ASM-2, 91), his marriage record, calls him Estevan DAIGLE "of Nantes," calls his wife Margarita LANDRY "of St. James," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Juan DAIGLE [his brother] & Joaquin ZERINGUE; BRDR, 3:235 (ASM-3, 135), his death/burial record, calls him Étienne DAIGLE, "age 35 yrs. of Nantes," gives his parents' names but mentions no wife, & says he was buried on 22 Jun 1810; BRDR, 6:177 (ASM-3, 135), a correction of his death/burial record, followed here, calls him Étienne DAIGRE, "age 35 yrs. of Nantes," gives his parents' names but mentions no wife, & says he "d. yesterday at 8 p.m." & was buried on 22 Jul 1819.  

15.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls her Eulalie [DAIGRE], & lists her with her widowed father & 7 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 94, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Eulalie DAIGLE, gives her parents' names, & says her godparents were Victor DAIGLE, brother of child, & Eulalie LOREAL; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls her Eulalie, sa [Olivier DAIGRE's] fille, age 8, on the embarkation list, Eulalia, su [Olivier D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Eulalie DAIGLE, his [Olivie DAIGLE's] daughter, age 8, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with her widowed father & 7 siblings; BRDR, 2:219, 446 (SJO-3, 35 & 36), the record of her first marriage, calls her Ulalia DAIGLE, calls her husband Pedro LANDRY, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Ignacio FERNANDEZ & Vandelino PIROTH; BRDR, 3:235 (SJO-3, 64), the record of her second marriage, calls her Eulalia DAIGLE, calls her husband Santiago AID, gives her & her his parents' names, says his parents were "of Normandy, France," does not mention her first husband, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Alexadro BINNON, & Victorio DAGOBERE.

16.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Eustache DAIGRE, & lists him with his wife & 3 sons; BRDR, 1a(rev.):54 (SGA-2, 83), his birth/baptismal record, calls him Eustache DESGRE, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Étienne BABIN & Marie BABIN; White, DGFA-1, 451-52, calls him Eustache [DAIGRE], gives his parents names, details his birth/baptism, including his godparents' names, details his marriage, & documents his sojourns in England, France, & LA; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 234-35, Family No. 290; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 43-44, Family No. 85; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls him Eustache DAIGRE, charpentier, age 56, on the embarkation list, Eustache DAIGLE, on the debarkation list, & Eustache DAIGLE, carpenter, age 56, on the complete listing, says he was in the 67th Family aboard La Bergère with his wife & 3 sons, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage, lists the implements the Spanish gave to him & his family after they reached LA, & says he owned 6 arpents of land but does not say when or where.

17.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Félicité DAIGLE; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Duc_Guillaume.htm>, Family No. 25, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, she & her husband survived the crossing but their son Jean-Baptiste, fils died at sea, & that they Congédiés pour Rochefort on 5 Dec 1758 [whatever that means]; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 667-69, Family No. 777.  

18.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls him François DAIGLE, & lists him with wife Jeanne AULAI & 4 children; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 94, 196, his marriage record, calls him François DAIGLE of Acadia, calls his wife Jeanne HOLLEY, gives his & her parents' names, says both his parents & her father were deceased at the time of the wedding, that her parents were Bourgeois de Cherbourg, & gives no witnesses to his marriage; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 6, Family No. 11, in detailing the marriage of his daughter Marie-Thérèse, calls his wife Jeanne ROLLET, & says he & his wife were "former residents of Acadie and now of this parish of Archigny"; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 44, Family No. 86, in detailing the marriage of his son François-Alexandre, calls his wife Jeanne AULAY, but says nothing of her place of origin; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 34-35, calls him Francois DAIGLE, laboureur, age 40, on the embarkation list, Franco D'AIGLE, on the debarkation list, & Francois DAIGLE, plowman, age 40, on the complete listing, says he was in the 16th Family aboard Le Beaumont with his wife Jeanne AULAI/Juana AULAI/Jeanne HOLLEY, age 47, & 4 children, details his marriage, calling his wife Jeanne HOLLEY & including his & her parents' names, & says son Louis was born in 1766 but gives no birthplace.  See also De La Roque, "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:128; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 505.

The marriage records of daughters Marie-Jeanne & Marie-Louise, both dated 27 Sep 1790, in BRDR, 2:218 (SGA-14, 15), says that he was deceased at the time of the weddings.  These same records call his wife Juanna, that is, Jeanne, HOLLET

Despite what was said in Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 6, cited above, I have not found AULAI, AULAY, AULET, HOLLET, HOLLEY, or ROLLET in either Arsenault or WhiteNote the reference in Francois's and Jeanne's marriage record, cited above, which says that her parents were Bourgeois de Cherbourg.  I will take this to mean that Thomas HOLLEY & his wife Scholastique LE GENTILHOMME, as well as their daughter Jeanne, were from Cherbourg, not Acadia.  Was Thomas HOLLEY an Englishman who settled in France?  The name certainly sounds English.  All other variations--AULAI, etc.--sound like French versions of an English surname.  

19.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Francois [DAIGRE], & lists him with his widowed father & 7 siblings; Arsenault, Genéalogie, 1148, the Grand-Pré section, calls him François, gives his parents' names, & says he was born in 1765; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 94, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Francois DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Honoré DAIGLE & Marie-Josèphe TÉRRIOT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls him Francois, son [Olivier DAIGRE's] fils, charpentier, age 19, on the embarkation list, Franco, su [Olivier D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Francois DAIGLE, his [Olivier DAIGLE's] son, carpenter, age 19, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with his widowed father & 7 siblings; BRDR, 2:216, 433 (SJO-3, 2 & 3), first copy of his marriage record, calls him Juan Bautista DEGRE, calls his wife Loraine LANDRY, gives his & her parents' names, says they all were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Felipe ANGELHEART & Simon Pedro DEGRE [probably his uncle]; BRDR, 2:5a-5b, 10a (SJO-3, 3), second copy of his marriage record, calls him Francisco DEGRE, "native of Acadia," calls his wife Loraine LANDRY, "native of Acadia," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Félipe ANGELHEART, Simon-Pedro DEGRE, Francisco GIDRY, & Maria-Julia TRAHAN; BRDR, 3:235, 498 (SJO-3, 3), third copy of his marriage record, calls him Francisco DAIGRE, calls his wife Loraine LANDRY, gives his & her parents' names, says all were "of Acadia," that the witnesses to his marriage were Félipe ANGLEHEART, Simon Pedro DEGRE, godfather, François GUIDRY, & godmother Marie Julia TRAHAN, & [inaccurately] that "this record was omitted in Vol. 2."; BRDR, 5(rev.):174 (SJO-11, 56), his death/burial record, calls him Francois DAIGLE, "age 73 yrs.," & says he "d. last night [30/31 Jan 1839]," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 524.  

The first copy of his marriage record is confusing in that he had a brother named Jean-Baptiste, so one wonders how much the recording priest had imbibed at the wedding party before he took out the parish register.  That François, & not Jean-Baptiste, married Servanne LANDRY is attested to in the second & third copies of the marriage record, cited above, & in several of their children's baptismal records in BRDR, 2:215, 216, 218, all of which call the father Francisco.  

Evidently he & brother Jean-Baptiste married on the same day & at the same place, hence the confusion in records.  The Baton Rouge priest at that time had issues with his record keeping.  In fact, 1793 was the first year of the Baton Rouge church, St.-Joseph's. 

20.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8R), calls him Francois-Alexandre DAIGLE, & lists him with his wife & 2 children; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 94, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Francois-Alexandre DAIGLE, says he was born 7 Feb 1763, gives his parents' names, says his father was from Acadia, calls his mother Jeanne HOLLEZ, but does not give his godparents' names; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 44-45, Family No. 86, calls him François-Alexandre DAIGLE, says he was born c1762 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, calling his mother Jeanne AULAY, says he was a ploughman, details his marriage, including the his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage, includes the birth/baptismal records of daughter Émilie-Adélaïde, baptized 12 Nov 1783, St.-Martin, Chantenay, & son François-Joseph, baptized 28 Apr 1785, St.-Martin, Chantenay, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls him Francois-Alexandre DAIGLE, laboureur, age 22, on the embarkation list, Franco Alexandro D'AIGLE, on the debarkation list, & François-Alexandre DAIGLE, plowman, age 22, on the complete listing, says he was in the 23rd Family on the embarkation list & the 24th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with his wife Jeanne HOLLEY/Juana AULAI, age 47, & 2 children, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names, calls his mother Jeanne AULAY, but does not give the place of marriage, & says he was born 3 Feb 1763 but gives no birthplace.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 505, 525.

21.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8R), calls him François-Joseph [DAIGLE], & lists him with his parents & sister; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 45, Family No. 86, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Francois-Joseph DAIGLE but does not give his godparents' names, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls him François-Joseph, son [Francois-Alexandre DAIGLE's] fils, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, Juan Josef, su [Franco Alexandro D'AIGLE's] hijo, depecho, on the debarkation list, & François-Joseph DAIGLE, his [François-Alexandre DAIGLE's] son, nursling, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 23rd Family on the embarkation list & the 24th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with his parents & a sister; BRDR, 3:227, 235 (SJO-3, 151), the record of his first marriage, calls him Francisco Josef DAIGRE, calls his wife Brigita COURTIN, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Juan GUEDERIE & Hiveau LEGENDRE; BRDR, 4:35, 146 (SJO-10, 10), the record of his second marriage, calls him François Joseph DAIGLE, calls his wife Modeste BABIN, gives his & her parents' names, does not mention his first wife, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph DOIRON, Dorville LANDRY, Jean Baptiste LEJEUNE, & Ursin LANDRY.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 525.  

He is called Joseph in several area church records.  See, for example, the marriage record of daughter Joséphine, dated 2 Sep 1839, in BRDR, 5(rev.):176 (ASC-10, 57); the marriage record of daughter Arthémise, dated 8 Nov 1851, in BRDR, 7:144 (SJO-10, 200); & the marriage record of daughter Anathalie, dated 13 Apr 1852, in BRDR, 7:143-44(SJB, Brusly-1A, 75), which calls him deceased. 

22.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls her Françoise DAIGLE, & lists her with her second husband & 4 children; BRDR, 1a(rev.):54 (SGA-2, 96), her birth/baptismal record, calls her Françoise DAIGLE, gives her parents' names, & says her godparents were Charles GRANGÉ & Magdeleine TERIOT; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 573, calls her Françoise DAIGRE, "his [Pierre RICHARD's] wife, 36 yrs. old, b. March 1730 at Rivière-aux-Canards, Acadie," & says she was a "wid. from a first marriage" when she married Pierre; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls her Françoise DAIGLE, sa [Pierre RICHARD's] femme, age 55, on the embarkation list, Francisca D'AIGLE, su [Pedro RICHARD's] muger, on the debarkation list, & Francoise DAIGLE, his [Pierre RICHARD's] wife, age 55, on the complete listing, says she was in the 4th Family aboard Le Beaumont with her second husband & 4 children, that son Pierre-Auguste was born 11 Jan 1774, son Anselme was born 3 Feb 1765, & son Julien-Marie was born 17 Nov 1768 but gives no birthplace for any of them, & that son Anselme was buried 26 Jan 1786, age 21, but gives no place of burial.  

Her birthplace is taken from Father Hébert's Acadians in Exile, cited above, but not her birth date--that comes from her baptismal record, cited above. 

The families of brothers Olivier & Simon-Pierre were 2 & 3 families up from hers, respectively, on the passenger list of Le Beaumont.  

23.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Honoré [DAIGRE], & lists him with his widowed father & 7 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls him Honoré, son [Olivier DAIGRE's] fils, age 3, on the embarkation list, Onorato, su [Olivier D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Honoré DAIGLE, his [Olivier DAIGLE's] son, age 3, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with his widowed father & 7 siblings; BRDR, 2:214, 354 (SGA-14, 36), his marriage record, calls him Honoré DAIGLE, calls his wife Adélaïde HÉBERT, gives his & her parents' names, says his mother & his wife's father were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Charles BREAU & Arsène BREAU; BRDR, 7:145 (SGA-8, 339), his death/burial record, calls him Honoré DAIGLE, "age 72 years, a native of Belle-isle-en-Mer, France," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

Was he a widower at the time of his death?  He was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors.

24.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Jean [DAIGRE], & lists him with his parents & 2 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 234-35, Family No. 290, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Joseph DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Pierre DAIGLE, his brother, & Marguerite DUGAST, & that his family lived at Plouër from 1763-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls him Jean, son [Eustache DAIGRE's] fils, age 15, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Jean DAIGLE, his [Eustache DAIGLE's] son, age 15, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 67th Family aboard La Bergère with his parents & 2 brothers; BRDR, 2:215, 528 (ASC-2, 46), his marriage record, calls him Juan DAIGLE, calls his wife Anna Francisca MASSERELLE, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph DAIGLE & Simon MAZROLLE; BRDR, 4:147 (ASM-3, 214), his death/burial record, calls him Jean DAIGLE, age 60 yrs., widower of Anne MAZEROLE, & gives his parents' names.  See also Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 43-44, Family No. 85.

He & his wife may have been that rare Acadian couple who had no children.  

25.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGRE, & lists him with his wife Marie-Claudine VALET & a son; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 47, Family No. 91, calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, says he was born c1740 but gives no birthplace, says he was a ploughman, does not give his parents' names, says he married Marie-Claudine VALET c1783 but gives no place of marriage, does not give his wife's parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal record of son Jean-René, baptized 27 Apr 1784, St.-Jacques, Nantes, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 38-39, calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGRE, laboureur, age 45, on the embarkation list, Juan Bautista D'AIGRE, on the debarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, plowman, age 45, on the complete listing, says he was in the 38th Family aboard Le Beaumont with his wife Marie-Claudine VALET/Maria Clauda VALET, age 31, & a son, details his marriage, but does not include his or her parents' names or gives a place of marriage, & says son Jean-René was baptized in 1784 but gives no place of baptism.   See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 25; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 525.

How was Jean-Baptiste kin to the other DAIGRE/DAIGLEs in LA?  His putative parents & possible birthplace are based on his name & estimated birth year.  See Arsenault, Généalogie, Grand-Pré section, 1144. 

Note that infant son Jean-René appears on the embarkation list but not on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont, which means the boy probably died on the crossing from France & did not reach LA.  The 1788 Spanish report of the Acadians at Fort Bute, Manchac, in Voorhies, J., cited above, seems to verify this sad fact, so I have removed the boy from this listing.  

The remarriage record of his wife Marie-Claudine, dated 19 Mar 1795, in BRDR, 2:713 (SJO-3, 8), calls her Maria Clodina VALET, gives her parents' names & where they lived in France, but, strangely, does not mention Jean-Baptiste, so one would not know that this was her second marriage by looking at the record.  She remarried to a French Canadian, Jean-Louis, son of Louison SOULIER of L'Assomption.  Although a VALET family lived in greater Acadia--on Île Royale--before Le Grand Dérangement, evidently Marie-Claudine's family was French, not Acadian.  See Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 772, Family No. 909. 

26.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Jean-Baptiste [DAIGRE], & lists him with his widowed father & 7 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls him Jean-Baptiste, son [Olivier DAIGRE's] fils, journallier, age 15, on the embarkation list, Juan Bautista, su [Olivier D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, his [Olivier DAIGLE's] son, day laborer, age 15, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with his widowed father & 7 siblings; BRDR, 5a, 15a (SJO-3, 2-3), first copy of his marriage record, calls him Juan-Baptista DEGRE, "native of Acadia," calls his wife Maria-Julia TRAHAN, "native of Acadia," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Francisco DEGRE [his brother], Philipe ANGELHEART, Francisco GIDRY, & Margarita BABIN; BRDR, 3:236, 835 (SJO-3, 2), second copy of his marriage record, calls him Juan-Bautista DEGRE, calls his wife Maria-Julia TRAHAN, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Acadia," that the witnesses to his marriage were Félipe ANGELHEART, Simon Pedro DEGRE, Francisco GUIDRY, & Maria Julia TRAHAN(sic), & that "on this record incorrect bride was published in Vol. 2." 

See BRDR, 2:216, for the "incorrect bride" record.  Evidently he & brother François married on the same day & at the same place, hence the confusion in records.  The Baton Rouge priest at that time had issues with his record keeping.  In fact, 1793 was the first year of the Baton Rouge church, St.-Joseph's. 

27.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, & lists him with his wife & 2 children; BRDR, 1a(rev.):55, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGRE, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Pierre DAIGRE, brother, & Josèph[e] Catherine ____(sic), & that his father signed the baptismal record; White, DGFA-1, 451-52, calls him Jean-Baptiste [DAIGRE], gives his parents names, details his birth/baptism, including his godparents' names, details his marriage, & documents his sojourns in England, France, & LA; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 243-44, Family No. 297, calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, says he was born in c1733 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, details his marriage, says he & his wife were married in c1762 in England but gives no specific place there, says she was born in c1739 but gives no birthplace, does not give his wife's parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Madeleine, born c1763, England, died age about 4 years 14 Feb 1767, Village de Lisnais, buried 15 Feb 1767, Plouër, son Joseph-Baptiste, 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, 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, born 15 Sep 1769, baptized next day, Plouër, goddaughter of Joseph DUPUIS & Anne DUGAST, unnamed child, born 28 Dec 1771, Lisnais, baptized same day, Plouër, died same day, Lisnais, buried same day, Plouër, & son Joseph-Marc, born & baptized 4 Jan 1773, Plouër, godson of Joseph COUPEAUX & Marguerite DUPUIS, says he, his wife Marie BOUDROT, & 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 Châtellerault, 29, Family No. 59, calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, says he was born in c1733 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, details his marriage, says he & his wife were married in c1762 in England but gives no specific place there, includes the birth/baptismal record of son Jean-Pierre, baptized 29 Jul 1775, St.-Jean-Baptiste, Châtellerault, godson of Pierre DAIGLE & Marguerite DAIGLE, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 46, Family No. 89, calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, says he was born in c1733 but gives no birthplace, does not give his parents' names, says he was a laborer & wood-polisher, details his marriage, says he married in c1768 but gives no place of marriage, that his wife was born in c1739 but gives no birthplace, does not include her parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Jean[-Pierre], died age 3 years & buried 1 May 1779, St.-Similien, Nantes, & son Jean-Augustin, baptized 1 Jul 1781, St.-Similien, Nantes, died 30 Apr 1784, probably St.-Similien, Nantes, & 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, 54-55, calls him Jean-Bte DAIGLE, perelleur [wood polisher], age 48, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, age 48, on the complete listing, says he was in the 49th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his wife & 2 children, details his 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 was born in 1769 but gives no birthplace.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 501 Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 25.

His being the Jean-Baptiste, son of Joseph/Pierre DAIGRE & Madeleine GAUTROT of Grand-Pré, is based on the following assumptions:  First, his birth date fits exactly the ages given for him given in Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, cited above.  Second, he married his wife in England, which means he was exiled to VA in 1755, which means he came from the Minas Basin.  Third, his name fits. 

Robichaux's studies of the Acadians in France document 8 children for him & his wife, 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 him & his wife for the rest of their days.  

The debarkation list for Le St.-Rémi did not survive, so we do not know if he & his wife even survived the crossing from France to LA.

28.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9L), calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGRE, & lists him singly; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 43, Family No. 84, details her family's participation in the Leigne-les-bois settlement in Poitou in the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 44-45, calls him Jean Bte DAIGRE, marin, age 20, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, sailor, age 20, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 13th "Family" aboard Le St.-Rémi with no one else; BRDR, 2:214, 259 (ASC-2, 3), his marriage record, calls him Jean Baptiste DAIGLE, does not give his or his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Alexis DAIGLE [his brother] & Julia BLANCHARD.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1777-98, 28, 56, 85, 138, 159.

His siblings crossed on 2 of the earlier Seven Ships of 1785, La Bergère (Alexis, Isabelle-Luce, & Marguerite) & Le Beaumont (Joseph).  

The identity of his wife is verified in the baptismal records of his sons Jean-Pierre & Joseph DAIGLE, dated 14 Aug 1796 & 15 Sep 1798, in BRDR, 2:216 (ASM-1, 72), 2:215 (ASM-1, 120), which give the boys' grandparents' names.  

29.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls him Jean-Louis [DAIGRE], & lists him with his widowed mother; Robichaux, Acadians in Chatellerault, 28-29, Family No. 58, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Louis DAIGLE, godson of Louis-Marie DUBOIS, uncle, & Jeanne DAIGLE, aunt, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement in the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 38-39, calls him Jean-Louis, sa [Jn DAIGLE's fils], age 10, on the embarkation list, Juan Luis D'AIGRE, hija de Margarita Angela DUBOI que queda en el Hosp. on the debarkation list, & Jean-Louis DAIGLE, her [Marguerite-Ange DUBOIS's] son, age 10, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 34th Family on the embarkation list & the 35th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with his widowed mother; BRDR, 2:216, 629-30 (ASM-2, 43), the record of his first marriage, calls him Juan Luis DAIGLY, calls his wife Ysabel RICHARD, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Poitou, France," her parents "of Roscalf in Britany, France," that both fathers were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Marin GAUTRAUX [his stepfather] & Auguste VERRET; BRDR, 3:236, 632 (ASM-2, 89), the record of his second marriage, calls him Juan Luis DAIGLE, "widower of Maria Isabel RICHARD, of Chatelrau," calls his wife Maria Josefa MICHEL, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Charles Maria BOUDRAUX & Jacinto AUCOIN; BRDR, 3:237 (ASM-3, 72), his death/burial record, calls him Juan Luis DAIGLE "of Chatelerau, Poitou, France, married to Maria MICHEl," gives his parents' names, calls his mother Maria Margarita DUBOIS, & says they were "of Acadia."  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 524; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 136.

Where was "Roscalf in Brittany"?  Roscoff near Morlaix? 

30.  Not in Wall of Names.  Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 94, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, calls his mother Judith GUREL, & says his godparents were Joseph TÉRRIOT & Marguerite D'AIGLE; BRDR, 2:214, 675 (ASC-2, 11), the record of his second marriage, calls him Jean Bautista DAIGLE, calls his wife Marguerite SIMONEAUX, does not give his or her parents' names or mention his first wife, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Simon SIMONEAUX [her brother] & Isabel DEGLE [her sister-in-law & probably his cousin]; BRDR, 4:147 (ASM-3, 210), his death/burial record, calls him Jean DAIGLE, "age 76 yrs., husband of Marguerite SAMONEAU (SIMONEAU)," but does not give his parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 495; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche 1770-98, 23, 67, 107, 114, 155.  

That Marguerite SIMONEAUX's husband was this Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE & not another one is verified by the baptismal record of Constancia Eloisa Margarita (Constance-Eloise-Marguerite) DAIGLE, dated 27 Nov 1796, in BRDR, 2:213 (ASM-1, 77), which calls the girl's parents Juan [DAIGLE] & Margarita SIMONAUX & her paternal grandparents Juan DAIGLE & Judith DUREL, Acadians.  One wonders exactly how he was related to witness Isabelle-Luce, daughter of Alexandre DAIGLE & Élisabeth GRANGER, other than that she was the wife of Marguerite SIMONEAUX's brother René dit Simon.  

So what's to be made of the Jean-Baptiste, son of Jean DAIGLE & Marie-Judith DUREL, who was born in c1760 & married Marie, daughter of Pierre LEBLANC & Marie LANDRY, at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, near Nantes, where he resided, on 3 Mar 1783?  See Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 45-46, Family Nos. 88 & 90.  How was Jean-Baptiste's father Jean connected with the other Acadian DAIGRE/DAIGLEs?  One suspects he was the 20-year-old son of Abraham DAIGRE & Marie BOUDROT who was counted with his family at Havre-de-la-Fortune on the east coat of Île St.-Jean in Aug 1752--the same place & at the same time that Jean-Baptiste's mother, then age 16, had been counted with her family.  See De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:127-28.  Robichaux includes the baptismal records of Jean-Baptiste's daughters Marie-Judith & Marguerite-Louise, dated 1 Apr 1784 & 11 Apr 1785, respectively, & goes on to say that Marie LEBLANC, "wife of Jean[-Baptiste] DAIGLE and her 2 daughters--Marie-Judith and Marguerite-Louise--were passengers (Family No. 64) aboard L'Amitié, which departed France on August 12, 1785 and arrived in Louisiana on November 7, 1785."  Note that the debarkation list for L'Amitié in Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 80, says that the Spanish gave implements--1 each of axe, shovel, hatchet & knife, 2 hoes--not to Marie but to Jean-Baptiste!  This could mean that he was aboard L'Amitié or, more likely, that he reached New Orleans soon after that ship arrived in Sep & then assumed his role as head of household.  Did Marie fail to survive the crossing from France, or did she die soon after reaching LA?  Jean-Baptiste remarried to Marguerite SIMONEAU in Apr 1786, so, if Marie did survive the crossing, she did not live for long.  In light of the baptismal record of his daughter by Marguerite, cited above, it seems certain that this was the Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE who married Marguerite SIMONEAUX, & that his first wife died either on the way to LA or soon after arrival.  Moreover, note the names & ages of his 2 older daughters in the Valenzuéla census of Jan 1788.  They are daughters from his first marriage; they were too old to be from the union with Marguerite SIMONEAUX.  Sadly, the Lafourche valley censuses from 1791-98 also show that his daughters by his first wife did not survive childhood.

Wall of Names failed to pick up this Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE probably because he does not appear on any of the embarkation lists of the 7 Ships from France, though, as previously noted, he does appear on the debarkation list of L'Amitié.  That he came to LA from France probably in 1785 is evident from the sources cited above.  That he was descended from Olivier DAIGRE of Port-Royal is not entirely clear. 

31.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls him Joseph DAIGRE neveu [of Charles GRANGER], & lists him with his uncle; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 43, Family No. 84, details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement during the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 38-39, calls him Joseph DAIGRE, son [Charles GRANGER's] neveu, marin, age 14, on the embarkation list, Josef D'AIGRE, su [Carlos GRANCHER's] sobrino, on the debarkation list, & Joseph DAIGLE, his [Charles GRANGER's] nephew, sailor, age 14, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 37th Family aboard Le Beaumont with his uncle; BRDR, 2:214, 706 (ASM-2, 57), his marriage record, calls him Josef DAIGRE "of St.-Malo," calls his wife Maria TRAHAN "of Belle Isle in Mer, France," gives his & her parents' names, says his father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan TRAHAN & Ambroise HÉBERT; BRDR, 5(rev.):175 (ASM-3, 258), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph DAIGLE, age 67 yrs. widower of Marie Marthe TRAHAN, but does not give his parenst' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 23, 67, 106, 155.  

Judging from the Assumption censuses of 1795 & 1797, he married the neighbors' daughter.  How was he kin to Luc LANDRY, with whom he lived in the mid- & late 1790s?

32.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Joseph [DAIGLE], & lists him with his parents & a sister; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 243-44, Family No. 297, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Joseph-Marc DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, says he was godson of Joseph COUPEAUX & Marguerite DUPUIS, & that his family resided at Plouër from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 29, Family No. 59, details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 46, Family No. 89, calls him Joseph [DAIGLE], & 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, 54-55, calls him Joseph, son [Jean-Bte DAIGLE's] fils, age 11, on the embarkation list, & Joseph DAIGLE, his [Jean-Baptiste DAIGLE's] son, age 11, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 49th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & a sister; BRDR, 2:122, 215 (ASM-2, 6 & 7), his marriage record, calls him Joseph DAIGLE, calls his wife Gorsina Victoria BOURQUE, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of St.-Malo, France" & hers "of LaRochelle, France," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Carlos DAIGLE & Pedro BOURQUE [probably her brother]; BRDR, 4:148 (ASM-3, 209), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph DAIGLE, age 57 yrs. of St. Malo, France, gives his parents' names but calls his mother Marie LANDRY, & does not mention a wife.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 25.

He & his sister Anne-Marie were the only ones of their parents' 8 children to survive childhood & create families of their own.  

33.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Joseph-Michel [DAIGRE], & lists him with his father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 94, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Joseph-Michel DAIGLE, & gives his parents' but not his godparents' names; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls him Joseph-Michel, son [Simon DAIGRE's] fils, age 9, on the embarkation list, Josef, su [Simon D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Joseph-Michel DAIGLE, his [Simon DAIGLE's] son, age 9, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 1st Family aboard Le Beaumont with his father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; BRDR, 2:215, 472 (SJA-2, 52), his marriage record, calls him Joseph DAIGLE, calls his wife Magdalena LE BLANC, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Belle Isle, Brittany, France," that her parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph LEBLANC & Joseph LELANDE; BRDR 5(rev.):175 (ASC-4, 256), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph DAIGLE, age 58 yrs., but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.

34.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls him Louis [DAIGLE], & lists him with his parents & 3 sisters; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 34-35, calls him Louis, son [Francois DAIGLE's] fils, califat, age 18, on the embarkation list, Luis, su [Franco D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Louis DAIGLE, his [Francois DAIGLE's] son, calker, age 18, on the complete listings, says he was in the 16th Family aboard Le Beaumont with his parents & 3 sisters, & that he was born in 1766 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:216, 550 (PCP-19, 35), his marriage record, calls him Louis-Francois DAIGRE "of Cherbourg, Normandy," calls his wife Marie-Rose MOLESON "of Poitou," gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph VAHAMORNDE & Charles BROUSSARD.

His marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because the Manchac/Baton Rouge area did not have its own church at the time, so the Pointe Coupée priest administered the sacraments in the area until 1793, when Baton Rouge got its own church & priest.  Louis settled in what became West Baton Rouge Parish.  Priests from Baton Rouge administered the sacraments there until the Brusly church was founded in 1841. 

35.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls her Louise [DAIGLE], & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 34-35, calls her Louise, sa [Francois DAIGLE's] fille, age 10, on the embarkation list, Luisa, su [Franco D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Louise DAIGLE, his [Francois DAIGLE's] daughter, age 10, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 16th Family aboard Le Beaumont with her parents & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:218, 709 (SGA-14, 15), her marriage record, calls her Maria Louisa DAIGLE, calls her husband Isidoro TULLIÉ (TULLIER), gives her & his parents' names, says all parents were "of Manchac," that both fathers were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Juan B. DUPUY & Juan Carlos TULLIER [his brother].

36.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Luce DAIGLE niece au dit [of Joseph BOURG], & lists her with her uncle, aunt, 3 cousins, & sister Margueritte; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 94, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Isabelle-Luce DAIGLE, gives her parents' names, but does not give her godparents' names; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 43, Family No. 84, details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls her Luce DAIGLE, nièce au dit [Joseph BOURG], age 24, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Luce DAIGLE, niece of the above [Joseph BOURG], age 24, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 58th Family aboard La Bergère with her uncle, aunt, 3 cousins, & sister Margueritte; BRDR, 2:214, 675 (ASC-2, 1), her marriage record, calls her Isabel DAIGLE, calls her husband Simon SIMONEAUX, does not give any parents' names, & says the witness to her marriage was Citang SIMONEAUX; BRDR, 2:214 (ASC-4, 12), her death/burial record, calls her Isabel DAIGLE, age 31 1/2 years, spouse of Petit René SIMONEAUX, but does not give her parents' names.

There is no Isabelle DAIGLE in Wall of Names, but I am certain she is the Luce DAIGLE who is listed in Wall of Names & whose birth date, 20 Jan 1761, fits Isabelle DAIGLE nicely.  See her baptismal & burial records, cited above.  Unfortunately, none of the baptismal records of her SIMONEAUX children in BRDR, 2:674-75, thanks to the neglect of the priest at Ascension, include her parents' names.  Another important clue to her identity, however, can be found in the Ascension census of 1788, in which one finds her siblings Marguerite (age 21, born in c1767) & Joseph (age 18, born in c1770), in her household.  All 3 of them came to LA as orphans on separate ships, Marguerite with Luce aboard the second ship, La Bergère, with the family of uncle Joseph BOURG, husband of Marie-Madeleine GRANGER, & Joseph aboard the third ship, Le Beaumont, with uncle Charles GRANGER.  Joseph's parents, as revealed in his marriage record in BRDR, 214, 706 (ASM-2, 57), were Alexo DAIGLE & Ysabel GRANGER of St.-Malo, France.  So it all fits nicely.  

37.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Margueritte DAIGLE, & lists her with her husband & 2 daughters; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No.75; Robichaux, Acadian in Nantes, 64-65; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls her Margueritte DAIGLE, sa [Pierre DUGAST's] femme, age 60, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marguerite DAIGLE, his [Pierre DUGAT's] wife, age 60, on the complete listing, says she was in the 56th Family aboard La Bergère with her husband & 2 daughters, & details her marriage, giving the names of her husband's parents but not the name of her parents & no place of marriage; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:205 (Opel. Ch.: v.1, p.95), her death/burial record, calls her Marguerite DAIGLE widow of Pierre DUGAS, but does not give her parents' name or her age at the time of her death.  

Was she the Margueritte, daughter of Joseph DAIGRE & Magdeleine GOTROT, born at Minas on 18 Nov 1725 & baptized at Grand-Pré on 5 May 1726?  See BRDR, 1a(rev.):56 (SGA-2, 69). 

She & her husband seem to have gone straight to the western prairies from New Orleans, not via upper Bayou Lafourche. 

38.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Margueritte DAIGLE niece au dit [of Joseph BOURG], & lists her with her uncle, aunt, 3 cousins, & sister Luce; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 43, Family No. 84, does not mention her specifically but gives her parents' names & details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement in the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls her Margueritte DAIGLE, nièce au dit [Joseph BOURG], age 17, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marguerite DAIGLE, niece of the above [Joseph BOURG], age 17, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 58th Family aboard La Bergère with her uncle, aunt, 3 cousins, & sister Luce.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 23.  

For the identity of her parents, see the footnote for sister Isabelle-Luce, above.  

What happened to her in LA after the Ascension census of Jan 1788?

39.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 9R), calls her Marguerite DAIGRE, & lists her with her husband Lambert BILLARDIN, daughters Marie-Jeanne & Marie, & son Étienne [BILLARDIN], with the notation:  ceux de Morlais arrives a Paimboeuf pour s'embarquer sur le meme navire [those from Morlaix arriving at Paimboeuf in order to embark on the same ship]; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 58-59, calls her Marguerite DAIGRE, sa [Lambert BILLARDIN's] feme, age 37, on the embarkation list, & Marguerite DAIGLE, his [Lambert BILLARDIN's] wife, age 37, on the complete listing, says she was in the 16th Family of ceux de Morlais arrivés à Paimboeuf pour s'embarquer sur le même Navire [those from Morlaix arriving at Paimboeuf in order to embark on the same ship] Le St.-Rémi with her husband Lambert BILLARDIN, employé/worker, age 40, daughters Marie-Jeanne BILLARDIN, age 6, Marguerite BILLARDIN, age 3, & son Étienne BILLARDIN, age 10, & details the marriage of Marguerite BILLARDIN of Morlaix, daughter of Albert[sic] [VILLARDIN] & Marguerite DAIGLE, to Julien OSSELLET of Nantes, son of Jean-Baptiste [OSSELLET] & Marguerite LANDRY, 4 Oct 1802, but gives no place of marriage, & of Marie-Jeanne VILLARDIN of Morlaix, daughter of Lambert [VILLARDIN] & Marguerite DAIGRE, to Joseph BOUDREAUX of St.-Malo, son of Aman [BOUDREAUX] & Marie NOX [NOGUES], 24 Oct 1803, but gives no place of marriage.  

How was she kin to the other DAIGRE/DAIGLEs in France & LA?  Did she even survive the crossing from France to LA?  Unfortunately, the debarkation list of Le St.-Rémi did not survive.  

I have found the BILLARDIN/VILLARDIN family in neither Arsenault nor White, so Marguerite DAIGLE's husband probably was a Frenchman from Morlaix who married an Acadian & agreed to emigrate with her to LA.  Their estimated marriage year is based on the age of the oldest child who went with them to LA, son Étienne BILLARDIN/VILLARDIN, born probably at Morlaix in c1775.  Daughters Marie-Jeanne & Marguerite BILLARDIN/VILLARDIN were born in Morlaix in c1779 & c1782, respectively.  See the embarkation list of Le St.-Rémi, cited above, & the girls' marriage records, dated 4 Oct 1802 & 24 Oct 1803, in BRDR, 2:720 (ASM-2, 71; ASM-2, 88), which state clearly that they were natives of Morlaix.  The family's name seems to have evolved from BILLARDIN to VILLARDIN in LA.  For the family's presence in the Ascension/Lafourche valley censuses of 1788, 1791, 1795, 1797, & 1798, see Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 30, 54, 81, 117, 162.  Marguerite DAIGLE was in none of these censuses with her family, so she probably died by Jan 1788.  The 1795 census reveals that Étienne BILLARDIN/VILLARDIN's full name may have been Étienne-Francois or Francois-Étienne.  Lambert BILLARDIN/VILLARDIN does not seem to have remarried.  Son Étienne moved from the Lafourche valley to the Opelousas District by 1812, when his son Étienne, fils was baptized at the Opelousas church at age 2 months in Aug 1812; the Opelousas priest who recorded the boy's baptism says the mother was Betsi RITTER.  See Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:87 (Opel. Ch.: v.1-B, p.564).  Étienne & Élisabeth/Betsy RITTER also had a daughter named Marie-Louise, called Louise, who married Jean Valerie or Valiere, son of Acadian Jean LÉGER, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in Nov 1827.  See Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-C:66-67, CD (Opel. Ct.Hse.: Mar. #74 & #80; GC Ch.: v.1, p.57, #120).  Étienne, père had died in the Opelousas District in May 1813; the priest who recorded his burial called him "an Acadian born in France" & said he was 30 years old, which gives him an estimated birth year (c1783) that differs from the embarkation list for Le St.-Rémi (c1775) by nearly a decade; the priest mentioned no wife for Étienne, père.  See Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:87 (Opel. Ch.: v.1, p.131).  I have found no other references to Étienne BILLARDIN/VILLARDIN, fils, so this line of the family, except for its blood, does not seem to have survived in the Bayou State.  

40.  Wall of Names, 41, calls her Margueritte DAIGLE; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 46, Family No. 90, her baptismal record, calls her Marguerite-Louise DAIGLE, gives her parents' names, does not give her godparents' names, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; BRDR, 2:217 (ASC-1, 204c), probably her death/burial record, calls her Margarita DAIGLE, but does not give any parents' names or her age at the time of her death.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche 1770-98, 23.

The burial record, cited above, likely is hers because she appears in the Lafourche valley censuses of Jan 1788 with her family, but not in the Jan 1791 census & subsequent ones.  See Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche 1770-98, 67, 107, 114, 155.  These census records reveal that her older sister Marie also died young. 

41.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Marguerite DAIGLE; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No.77, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, her parents, Olivier DAIGUE, age 41, and Angélique DOUERAND, age 39, died in the hospital probably at St.-Malo on 2 Mar & 27 Feb 1759, respectively, soon after reaching France, & 7 of their 11 children--sons Charles, age 10, Paul, age 2, Joseph, age 8, Jean-Pierre, no age given, Jean-Baptiste, no age given, & Firman, no age given, & daughter Geneviève, no age given--died at sea, that the 4 surviving children were sons Miniac, age 15, daughters Marguerite, Ozite, age 13, & Rose, age 11.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:116; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 533, 694-95, 892.   

What happened to her in LA?

Despite what her burial record implies, she was a widow at the time of her death.  Based on passenger lists and censuses, the age given in her burial record is off by a decade, not usual for people of such an advanced age back then.  The priest, who did not have access to these other records, had to rely on family members for the age of the deceased.  Without birth certificates to verify age, the family had to make a guess of it, and they were often wrong, especially for someone who had lived in so many places--in this case, Acadia, France, & LA.  

43.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Marie DAIGRE veuve BOUDROT, & lists her with 2 children; BRDR, 1a(rev.):56 (SGA-3, 19a), her baptismal record, calls her Marie-Josèph[e] DAIGRE, gives her parents' names, says she was born on 10 Jan 1743, & that her godparents were Bernard DAIGRE, who signed the baptismal record, & Marie GRANGÉ; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 102-03, Family No. 131, calls her Marie-Josèphe DAIGLE, gives her parents' names, says she was born at "St.-Charles-des-Mines" on 10 Nov 1742, details her first marriage, & says her family lived at Plouër from 1765-67 & at St.-Servan from 1768-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls her Marie DAIGRE, veuve BOUDREAU, age 44, on the embarkation list, Marie DAIGRE, on the debarkation list, & Marie DAIGLE, widow BOUDROT, age 44, on the complete listing, says she was in the 61st Family aboard La Bergère with 2 children, details her first marriage but gives no parents' names or place of marriage, says daughter Marie-Rose BOUDROT was born in 1760 but gives no birthplace, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to her & her family after they reached LA; BRDR, 2:217, 692 (ASC-2, 5), the record of her second marriage, calls her Maria DAIGLE, calls her husband Pierre TERRIAU (TERRIOT), does not give her or her his parents' names but says they were Acadians, & that the witness to her marriage was François-Xavier ROBICHAUT.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 28. 

Her birth date is taken from her baptismal record, not from Robichaux's study of the Acadians at St.-Malo. 

Did she get to France in 1759 from one of the Maritime islands, or in 1763 from England?  Being from Minas, it probably was the latter, though her name & age match a Marie-Josèph[e], age 10, counted on Rivière-du-Nord, Île St.-Jean, with brothers Charles & Rémy DAIGRE in Aug 1752.  See De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:84.  Her first husband got to France via VA & England. 

The Ascension census of 1788 links her with her second husband. 

44.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Marie DAIGLE, & lists her with her husband & 2 children; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 89, Family No. 167, calls her Marie DAIGLE, & says she was "born about 1761 in the Parish of Saint-Charles in Acadie"; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 20-21, calls her Marie DAIGLE, sa [Isaac HÉBERT's] femme, age 32, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie DAIGLE, his [Isaac HÉBERT's] wife, age 22, on the complete listing, says she was in the 45th Family aboard La Bergère with her husband & 2 children, details her marriage, including her & her husband's parents' names but not the place of marriage, & says son Rémi [HÉBERT] was born in 1782 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 4:149 (ASM-3, 142), her death/burial record, calls her Marie DAIGLE, age 66 yrs., married to Isaac HÉBER, but does not give her parents' names.

She could not have been born at Grand-Pré in c1761.  Her family was in England at the time, so that is where she was born, unless her estimated birth year was c1751. 

45.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls her Marie [DAIGRE], & lists her with her widowed father & 7 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls her Marie, sa [Olivier DAIGRE's] fille, age 11, on the embarkation list, Maria, su [Olivier D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Marie DAIGLE, his [Olivie DAIGLE's] daughter, age 11, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with her widowed father & 7 siblings; BRDR, 2:143, 217 (SGA-14, 24, #87), her marriage record, calls her Maria-Geneveva DEGLE "of Belle Isle in France," calls her husband Arsenio BRAU, gives her & his parents' names, says his parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Lorenzo ANRY [probably HENRY] & Pedro LANDRY; BRDR, 6:180 (SGA-8, 279), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Geneviève DAIGRE, "age 72 yrs., widow of Arsène BREAUX," says she died "yesterday at 9 a.m.," but gives no parents' names. 

46.  Wall of Names, 41, calls her Marie DAIGLE; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 46, Family No. 90.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche 1770-98, 23, 155.  

She appears in the Lafourche valley censuses of Jan 1788 & Jan 1791, but not in the Dec 1795 & subsequent ones.  See Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche 1770-98, 67, 107, 114.  So she, along with her younger sister Marguerite, probably died young. 

47.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie DAIGLE.  Who were her parents?  What happened to her in LA?

48.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8:), calls her Jeanne [DAIGLE], & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 34-35, calls her Jeanne, sa [Francois DAIGLE's] fille, age 16, on the embarkation list, Juana, su [Franco D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Jeanne DAIGLE, his [François DAIGLE's] daughter, age 16, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 16th Family aboard Le Beaumont with her parents & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:20, 218 (SGA-14, 15), her marriage record, calls her Maria Juana DAIGLE, calls her husband Francisco ARBOUR, gives her & her his parent's names, says his parents were "of Baton Rouge," that both fathers were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Jean B. DUPUY, Juan Carlos TULLIER, & Francisco-Alexandro DAIGLE [her brother].

Although her marriage was recorded at St.-Gabriel, she probably was married in the Baton Rouge District where she lived.  Baton Rouge did not have a church of its own until 1793, so priests from St.-Gabriel would administer the sacraments there until it did.  

The baptismal record of daughter Anne-Scholastique-Geneviève ARBOUR, dated 14 Jun 1792, in BRDR 2:20 (PCP-7, 52), calls her Marie-Jeanne-Jacqueline DAIGLE.

49.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls her Marie-Magdelaine [DAIGRE], & lists her with her father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 95, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Magdalen DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, & says her godparents were Pierre GUILLEMONT & Marie-Marguerite DAIGRE; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, call her Marie-Magdelaine, sa [Simon DAIGRE's] fille, age 11, on the embarkation list, Maria, su [Simon D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Marie-Magdelaine DAIGLE, his [Simon DAIGLE's] daughter, age 11, on the complete listing, & says s he was in the 1st Family aboard Le Beaumont with her father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; BRDR, 6:179 (SJO-11, 61), perhaps her death/burial record, calls her Marie DAIGRE, "age ca. 70 yrs.," says she "d. last night at Manchac," but gives no parents' names nor mentions a husband.

The burial record cited above does not mention a husband, so this is a strong hint that she was the Marie DAIGRE who died at Manchac in Dec 1842.  So one has to ask--why did she not marry? 

50.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls her Marie-Marguerite [DAIGRE], & lists her with her father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 558, calls her Marie-Marguerite DAIGRE, gives her birth date but not her birthplace, gives her parents' names, says "the family was held at Falmouth, England, entered France at Morlaix," that her family was No. 27 at Kervellant, Sauzon, Belle-Île-en-Mer, in 1765, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, call her Marie-Marguerite, sa [Simon DAIGRE's] fille, age 24, on the embarkation list, Maria Margarita, su [Simon D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Marie-Marguerite DAIGLE, his [Simon DAIGLE's] daughter, age 24, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 1st Family aboard Le Beaumont with her father, stepmother, & 6 siblings; BRDR, 2:218, 548 (SGA-14, 4, #8), the record of her first marriage, calls her Maria Margarita DAIGRE, calls her husband Josef MIR, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "from/of England" & his "of Acadia," & gives no witnesses to her marriage; BRDR, 2:217, 609 (SGA-14, 19), the record of her second marriage, calls her Maria DAIGLE, calls her husband Daniel PROVANCHE, gives her & her his parents' names, says her parents were"of Manshac" & his "of Canada in America (sic)," does not give her first husband's name, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Simon DAIGLE [either her father, brother, or first cousin] & François YEDRY [probably GUÉDRY]; BRDR, 217 (SJO-4, 8), her death/burial record, calls her Maria DAIGLE, "age 36 years of Farmoth[sic], England & wife of Daniel PROVENCHÉ," & gives her parents' names.

Although her marriages were recorded at St.-Gabriel, they probably were performed at Fort Bute, Manchac, at the southern end of the Baton Rouge District, where her family lived; there was no church at Baton Rouge until 1793, so priests from St.-Gabriel, or from Pointe Coupée across the river, would administer the sacraments north of Bayou Manchac until then.  Notice that her burial in Oct 1795 was recorded at Baton Rouge.  Her French-Canadian husband wasted no time in remarrying; he married Anne LEBLANC of St.-Gabriel at Baton Rouge in Oct 1796.

There is a burial record for Juana, or Jeanne, PROVENCHÉ, in BRDR, 2:610 (SJO-3, 8), which says that Juana/Jeanne's mother was Maria Margarita DEGRE, that the girl was born on 25 Nov but gives no birth year, that she was a "native of Machac" & buried on 30 Nov 1795.  Since Marie-Marguerite DAIGLE's burial was recorded on 26 Oct 1795, how could her daughter have been born a month after her death?  Most likely Juana/Jeanne was born in Nov 1794, & the omission of the birth year is a transcription error.  

51.  Not in Wall of Names.  Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 239-40, Family No. 293, calls her Marguerite DAIGLE, says she was born in c1744, calls her parents Jean DAIGLE & his second wife Marie-Anne BRAUD, & details her 2 marriages; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 359-60, Family No. 438, calls her Marguerite DAIGLE, says she was born in c1744, that her mother was Anne-Marie BRAUD, that her first husband "drowned on a ship off the coast of Guernsey in January 1769:; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 88-89, calls her Marie DAIGLE, sa [Luis CLAUSINET, père's] femme, age 37, on the embarkation list, Marie DAIGLE, his [Louis CLOSSINET, father's] wife, age 37, on the complete listing, is not on the debarkation list, says she was in the 9th Family aboard La Ville d'Archangel with her second husband & daughter Geneviève GIROIRE, "from the first marriage of Marie DAIGLE," & details her second marriage, including her parents' names, but gives no place of marriage.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:103; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 88, 139.  

Why are she & daughter Geneviève GIROIR from her first marriage not in Wall of Names, 43, where her second husband Louis CLOSSINET is listed alone? 

Her daughter Geneviève's marriage record, dated 30 Mar 1796, in BRDR, 2:324 (ASM-2, 18), calls the mother "Margarita DAIGLE of Parish of Pleslien [Pleudihen, France, near St.-Malo]."  If Marguerite was born in the 1740s, she would not have been born in France.  Her family simply lived at Pleudihen in the 1760s & 1770s.  See Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 242.  

52.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie-Osithe DAIGLE.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:116; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No.77; Robichaux, Acadian in St.-Malo, 879. 

53.  Wall of Names, 32 (8L), calls him Olivier DAIGRE, & lists him with no wife & 8 children; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2467, the LA section, calls him Olivier DAIGLE, says he was born in 1732 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, says they were from Grand-Pré, details his 2 marriages, including his wives' parents' names, says he married his second wife at Falmouth, Angleterre, in 1758, lists his children, all from his second marriage, as Victor in 1761, François in 1765, Michel in 1766, Simon-François in 1767, Jean-Baptiste in 1770, Marie-Geneviève in c1776, Honoré in c1778, Pélagie in c1780, & Eulalie in c1782, but gives no birthplaces, & says he & his family lived at Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, from 1765-85, & sailed to LA on Le Beaumont; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 557, calls him Olivier DAIGRE, gives his birth month/year & birthplace but not his parents' names, says he was brother of Honoré, Simon-Pierre, Jean-Charles, Paul, & Francoise, says he married "a first time in Aug. 1755" but does not give his first wife's name, gives his second wife's name, says she was born Aug 1843 at Rivière-aux-Canards, daughter of Charles LEBLANC, & died at Paimboeuf "before 1785," that son Victor was born on 24 Dec 1761 but gives no birthplace, son Michel died on 1 May 1766, age 30 mths., but gives no place of death, that "the family was held at Falmouth, England, entered France at Morlaix," that 9 other children were born at Belle-Île, that they were Family No. 26 at Chubiguer, Le Palais, in 1765, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 47, Family No. 92, calls him Olivier DAIGLE, says he was born in 1732 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names & the names of his wives, including  their parents' names, says his second wife was born c1743 but gives no birthplace, that they were married in Falmouth, England, that she died at age 40 & was buried 10 Dec 1783 at Paimboeuf, includes the birth/baptismal or death/burial records of son Jean-Pierre-Toussaint, baptized 1 Nov 1783, Paimboeuf, & daughter Marguerite, died age 3 years, 3 mos. & buried at Paimboeuf, 18 Nov 1784, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls him Olivier DAIGRE, charpentier, age 53, on the embarkation list, Olivier D'AIGLE, on the debarkation list, & Olivier DAIGLE, carpenter, age 53, on the complete listing, says he was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with no wife & 8 children, & details his second marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 2:218 (SGA-8, 7, #27), his death/burial record, calls him Olivier DAIGLE "of New Orleans, res. Manchac," but does not give his parents' names or mention his wives.

Was he the Olivier DAIGLE, age 27, who arrived at Cherbourg, France, on 24 Feb 1759 & then went on to St.-Malo?  See <pagesperso-orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/AutresPorts.htm>.  The age of that Olivier DAIGLE fits perfectly the age of the one here.  However, if he arrived at Cherbourg in Feb 1759, he probably wound not have been exiled to VA in 1755 & then deported to England in 1756 but would have been deported from one of the Maritime islands--Île St.-Jean, today's Prince Edward Island, or Île Royale, today's Cape Breton Island--directly to France in late 1758.  Arsenault, cited above, & Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 47, are clear, however, that the Olivier DAIGLE who went to LA married his second wife in England in c1758.  Did the English repatriate Acadians to France before 1763?  I have found no evidence of it.  

His younger brother Simon-Pierre's family was just above his on the passenger list of Le Beaumont, & sister Françoise's family was 2 below his on the same list.

Why was he called Olivier of New Orleans in his death/burial record?  Did he & his family settle at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District after the usual time of recuperation in the city following their voyage, as did the majority of passengers aboard Le Beaumont, or did they remain in New Orleans, where Olivier plied his trade as a carpenter?  Note that only his older sons Victor, François, Simon, & Jean-Baptiste appear on the 1788 Spanish survey of new Acadian settlers at Fort Bute, Manchac, at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District.  Although Olivier's burial was recorded at the St.-Gabriel church, he probably died & was buried near Fort Bute, Manchac, just north of St.-Gabriel, where he had joined his older sons after a sojourn in New Orleans.  Baton Rouge did not have its own church until 1793.  Before that time, priests from St.-Gabriel downriver, or from Pointe Coupée across the river, administered the sacraments in the lower Baton Rouge District until Baton Rouge got a church of its own, which was not until 1793.

54.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls him Paul DAIGLE mineur, & lists him with the family of Jean DOUAIRON; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2468, the LA section, calls him Pierre-Olivier DAIGLE, says he was born in 1767 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, calls his father Miniac, says they were from Pigiguit & Belle-Île-en-Mer, details his marriage, including his wife's parents' names, but lists no children; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 32-33, calls him Paul DAIGLE, mineur, laboureur, age 18, on the embarkation list, Pablo D'AIGLE, huerfano, on the debarkation list, & Paul DAIGLE, a minor & an orphan, laborer, age 18, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 11th Family on the embarkation list, with Jean DOIRON et al., & in the 12th Family on the debarkation list, recorded singly; BRDR, 2:218, 626 (SGA-14, 12), his marriage record, calls him Pol-Olivier DEGRE, calls his wife Maria-Juana RIZAL, gives his & her parents' names, calls his father Olivier, says his parents were "of France," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Bautista HÉBER & Charles HÉBER; BRDR, 5(rev.):178 (SJO-11, 47), his death/burial record, calls him Paul DAIGLE, "age 69 yrs.," but gives no parents' names nor mentions a wife. 

He & his future wife traveled to LA from France aboard the same ship.  They may have known one another in France or met aboard ship or in New Orleans while they recuperated from the long voyage.

His marriage was recorded at St.-Gabriel but was performed probably at Manchac in the lower Baton Rouge District, where he lived.  There was no church at Baton Rouge until 1793, so the priest from St.-Gabriel, or from Pointe Coupée across the river, administered the sacraments in the southern part of the Baton Rouge District until it got its own church.  Why would the St.-Gabriel priest spell RICHARD RIZAL?  Is that a Spanish version of the name? 

Was he a widower when he died?  The burial record cited above gives no clue. 

55.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls her Pélagie [DAIGRE], & lists her with her widowed father & 7 siblings; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2467, her father's profile in the LA section, calls her Pélagie & says she was born in c1780 but gives no birthplace; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 96, her birth/baptismal record, recorded at Le Palais, Belle-Île-en-Mer, calls her Pélagie DAIGLE, gives her parent's names, & says her godparents were Jacques CHOLLET & Marie-Anne LEBLANC; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls her Pélagie, sa [Olivier DAIGRE's] fille, age 9, on the embarkation list, Pelagia, su [Olivier D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Pélagie DAIGLE, his [Olivier DAIGLE's] daughter, age 9, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with her widowed father & 7 siblings; BRDR, 2:38, 213 (SJO-3, 15), her marriage record, calls her Doncella Pélagie DEGRE, calls her husband Pedro-Firmin OCOIN, gives her & her his parents' names, says her parents were from "Bellille en Mer," his "of St.-Malo," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Juan Bautista OCOIN & Francisco TRAHAN.  

So was her full name Donatelle-Pélagie?  I have found this first name in no other record.  

56.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Simon [DAIGRE], & lists him with his widowed father & 7 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 96, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Simon-Francois DAIGLE, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Simon-Pierre DAIGRE [his uncle] & Marie-Francoise FONTEAU; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls him Simon, son [Olivier DAIGRE's] fils, tonellier, age 18, on the embarkation list, Simon, su [Olivier D'AIGLE's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Simon DAIGLE, his [Olivier DAIGLE's] son, wet cooper, age 18, on the complete listing, says he was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with his widowed father & 7 siblings, & details his marriage, including the names of his & his wife's parents', but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 2:219, 417 (SJO-3, 6), his marriage record, dated 4 Nov 1794, calls him Simon DEGRE, calls his wife Anna Maria LANDRY, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were from "Bellille en Mer, France" & hers from "Bala of Isle a Malo," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Josef VASQU & Simon Pedro DEGRE [his first cousin]; BRDR, 2:219 (SJO-4, 3), his death/burial record, dated 2 Oct 1794[sic], calls him Simon Pedro[sic] DAIGLE, "age 26 years, husband of Elnora Maria LANDRY, res. Manchac & native of Belle Isle en Mer," but does not give his parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 524.  

As his baptismal record makes clear, his name was Simon-François, not Simon-Pierre, as the priest at Baton Rouge who recorded his burial would have us believe.  How is it possible that he was married a month after he was buried?  The date for his wedding or his burial must be wrong.  Is this a transcription error, or was the Baton Rouge priest trippin'?

The Manchac mentioned in his death/burial record was not St.-Gabriel, south of the bayou, but the Fort Bute area, north of the bayou, at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District, where his family had settled.

57.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls him Simon DAIGRE, & lists him with his second wife & 7 children; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 558, calls him Simon-Pierre DAIGRE, gives his birth date & birth places, does not give his parents' names but says he was brother of Olivier, Jean-Charles, Paul, & Françoise, gives his first wife's name, says she was born on 12 Nov 1738 but gives no birthplace, daughter of Mary LANDRY, wife of Jean TÉRRIOT, sister of Marie-Josèphe, Marie, Anne-Gertrude, & Jean TÉRRIOT, that son Édouard was born on 31 Jan 1764 but gives no birthplace, daughter Marie-Marguerite was born on 29 Oct 1759 but gives no birthplace, daughter Anne-Geneviève was born on 26 Jul 1761 but gives no birthplace, that "the family was held at Falmouth, England, entered France at Morlaix," that 5 other children were born at Belle-Île, that they were Family No. 27 at Kervellant, Sauzon, in 1765, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 48-49, Family No. 94, calls him Simon-Pierre DAIGLE, says he was born in 1735 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, says that he was an innkeeper & ship's carpenter, details his first marriage, including his first wife's name & her parents' names, says that his first wife was born c1739 but gives no birthplace, that she died at age 45 & was buried 10 Jan 1784 at Paimboeuf, details his second marriage, including his second wife's parents' names & the name of her first husband, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of sons of his first wife, François, baptized 5 May 1779, Paimboeuf, died 22 Nov 1779, probably Paimboeuf, & Jean-Pierre, died age 13 1/2 & buried 5 Feb 1783, Paimboeuf, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls him Simon DAIGRE, charpentier, age 49, on the embarkation list, Simon D'AIGLE, on the debarkation list, & Simon DAIGLE, carpenter, age 49, on the complete listing, says he was in the 1st Family aboard Le Beaumont with his second wife & 7 children, details his second marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 2:219, 692 (PCP-19, 14), the record of his third marriage, calls him Simon-Pierre DAIGRE, "an Acadian & widower of Marie TÉRIOT," calls his wife Rosalie TERIOT, "an Acadian & widow of Alexandre AUCOIN," does not give his but gives her parents' names, & gives no witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 2:219 (SGA-8, 17, #85), his death/burial record, calls him Simon Pedro DAIGLE, but does not give his parents' or his wives' names or even his age at the time of his death.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 525.

His older brother Olivier's family, even larger than his, was the family just below his on the passenger list of Le Beaumont.  His sister Françoise's family was 3 down from his on the same list.  

His third marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because Baton Rouge did not have a church of its own until 1793.  Before then, priests from Pointe Coupée, or St.-Gabriel down river, administered the sacraments to the settlers at Baton Rouge and Manchac. 

How closely kin were his first & third wives, both THÉRIOTs?

Although his burial was recorded at St.-Gabriel, he probably died & was buried in the Fort Bute area north of Bayou Manchac at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District, where he & his family had settled.

Although his marriage & burial were recorded at St.-Gabriel, he probably was married, died, & was buried in the Fort Bute area north of Bayou Manchac at the southern edge of the Baton Rouge District, where he & his family had settled.  There was no church at Baton Rouge until 1793, so priests from St.-Gabriel, or from Pointe Coupée across the river, administered the sacraments in the Fort Bute area until Baton Rouge had its own church.  

What killed him so young?
