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

LE BLANC

[luh-BLONH]

ACADIA

Daniel LeBlanc, born in France in c1626, was a young farmer when he arrived at Port-Royal in c1645, among the earliest settlers in the colony.  Five years later, in c1650, he married Françoise, older daughter of Jean Gaudet and widow of ____ Mercier.  They "settled on the north bank of the Port-Royal River (today the Annapolis River), to the northeast of the marsh at Bélisle, about nine miles above the fort at Port-Royal, and a half mile below the chapel of Saint-Laurent, where he died between the years 1693-98."  Daniel and Françoise had seven children, including six sons, all born at Port-Royal, five of whom created families of their own.  Their daughter married into the Blanchard family.  After they took wives, the four older LeBlanc sons moved to the Minas area, where they created a large extended family.  The youngest son remained on his father's lands near Port-Royal.  (According to family genealogist Lucie LeBlanc Consentino:  "... as was the usual way for the Acadians, the youngest son inherited the father’s land."):  

Oldest son Jacques, born in c1651, married Catherine, daughter of Antoine Hébert and Geneviève Lefranc, at Port-Royal in c1673.  By the early 1690s they had moved to the Minas Basin, where Jacques died after May 1731, age 80.  He and Catherine had 13 children, including six sons who married into the Richard, Boudrot, and Landry families.  Three of Jacques and Catherine's daughters married Cormier brothers from Chignecto; the other three married into the Breau, Boudrot, and Haché dit Gallant families. 

Étienne, born in c1656, never married.  He died by 1686, in his 20s.  

René, born in c1657, married Anne, daughter of Jacques Bourgeois and Jeanne Trahan, at Port-Royal in c1678.  They, too, settled at Minas, where René died in January 1734, age 80.  He and Anne had 10 children, including six sons who married into the Landry, Hébert, Melanson, Thébeau, Thériot, Mailloux, and Dugas families.  Their two daughters married into the Thériot and Landry families.  René's third son, René, fils, born at Minas in c1682, served as notary at Minas from December 1744 until the deportation and is a character in Longfellow's Evangeline (see Part the First, III, which says he was "Bent like a labouring oar, that toils in the surf of the ocean, / Bent, but not broken, by age was the form of the notary public; / Shocks of yellow hair, like the silken floss of the maize, hung / Over his shoulders; his forehead was high; and glasses with horn bows / Sat astride on his nose, with a look of wisdom supernal. /  Father of twenty children was he, and more than a hundred / Children's children rode on his knee, and heard his great watch tick. / Four long years in the time of the war had he languished a captive, / Suffering much in an old French fort as the friend of the English. / Now, though warier grown, without all guile or suspicion, / Ripe in wisdom was he, but patient, and simple, and childlike. / He was beloved by all, and most of all by the children; / For he told them tales of the Loup-garou in the forest, / And of the goblin that came in the night to water the horses, / And of the white Létiche, the ghost of a child who unchristened / Died, and was doomed to haunt unseen the chambers of children; / And how on Christmas even the oxen talked in the stable, / And how the fever was cured by a spider shut up in a nutshell, / And of the marvellous powers of four-leaved clover and horseshoes, / With whatsoever else was writ in the lore of the village.")  René, fils married thrice, to Élisabeth Melanson, Marguerite Thébeau, and to a woman whose name has been lost to history.  As Longfellow implies, René, fils fathered 22 children, 17 by his second wife, who gave him a set of triplets and three sets of twins!  For two years following Christmas Day 1749, René, fils was detained by Father Jean-Louis Le Loutre and his Mi'kmaq at Village-des-Beausoleil on upper Rivière Petitcoudiac.  In October 1755, Rene, fils was deported with some of his family to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he died after 6 February 1758, in his late 70s. 

André, born in c1659, married Marie, daughter of Abraham Dugas and Marguerite Doucet, at Port-Royal in c1683.  André followed his older brothers to the Minas area, where he died in May 1743, age 86.   He fathered 10 children also, including seven sons who married into the Bourgeois, Boudrot, Labauve, Granger, and Flan families.  Their three daughters married into the Cormier, Doiron, and Robichaud families.  

Antoine, born in c1662, married Marie, another daughter of Jacques Bourgeois and Jeanne Trahan, at Port-Royal in c1681 and also followed his older brothers to the Minas Basin, where he died before July 1730.  Antoine and Marie had 10 children also, including seven sons who married into the Landry, Gautrot, Dupuis, Bourg, and Thériot families.  Their three daughters married into the Landry, Allain, Richard, and Dupuis families.  Antoine's son Joseph dit Le Maigre participated in the fight against Britain during King George's War.

Youngest son Pierre, born in c1664, married first to Marie, daughter of Claude Thériot and Marie Gautrot, at Port-Royal in c1684, and then to Madeleine, daughter of François Bourg and Marguerite Boudrot, at Port-Royal in c1697.  Pierre and his family remained on the haute rivière at Port-Royal, where Pierre became a captain of militia and ran afoul of British governor Samuel Vetch in early 1711.  Pierre's first wife gave him only one child, a son named Pierre, who survived childhood but probably did not marry.  His second wife gave him eight more children, including five sons who married into the Bourgeois, Dupuis, Thériot, Richard, and Girouard families.  Two of their three daughters married into the Bourgeois family. 

`

Another LeBlanc family lived in Acadia before Le Grand Dérangement, but, unlike that of Daniel's, it did not survive past two generations.  Pierre dit Jasmin, son of Jacques LeBlanc and Marthe Mayare of Ozan, Auvergne, France, was probably no kin to Daniel.  He came to Acadia as a sergeant in the company of the Sieur de Gannes, détachement de la Marine, and was stationed at Port-Royal during Queen Anne's War.  In October 1708, he married Marie, daughter of Jacques Triel dit LaPierrière and Marie Savoie, at Port-Royal.  They had a single child, a son named François-Pierre, who was born at Port-Royal in July 1709.  Pierre dit Jasmin helped defend the Acadian capital when New England forces attacked in the fall of 1710.  Evidently the victorious New Englanders took Pierre dit Jasmin, Marie, and little François-Pierre to Boston, where Marie died in 1711; she was only 21 years old.  The British allowed Pierre dit Jasmin to return to Port-Royal, now Annapolis Royal, where he remarried to Catherine, daughter of Philippe Pinet of Minas, in October 1712.  They settled at Minas.  Catherine gave the sergeant two more children, a daughter, Catherine, born in c1714 probably at Minas, and a child whose gender has been lost to history, who was born and died at Minas between 1719 and 1724.  In the latter year, a census at Minas revealed that both Pierre dit Jasmin and son François-Pierre were dead.  If Francois-Pierre had lived to 1724, he would have died at age 15, too young to have married and started a family of his own, so his line of the family died with him.  

~

By 1755, descendants of Daniel LeBlanc, on the other hand, had created the largest family in Acadia.  Most of them could be found in the Minas settlements, at Grand-Pré, Rivière-aux-Canards, and Pigiguit.  But they also could be found at Chignecto, Chepoudy, Annapolis Royal, and in the French Maritimes. 

LE GRAND DÉRANGEMENT

Le Grand Dérangement of the 1750s scattered this huge family to the winds:  

Since most of the LeBlancs lived in the Minas settlements, dozens of them fell into the hands of the British in the fall of 1755 and ended up on ships bound for New England, Maryland, and Virginia. ...  

The LeBlancs who were shipped to Virginia endured a fate worse than most of the other refugees deported from Minas in the fall of 1755.  In mid-November, when five transports appeared unexpectedly at Hampton Roads, the Virginia governor, Robert Dinwiddie, protested their deportation to his colony without his consent.  Many of the exiles died on the filthy, crowded ships anchored in Hampton Roads while the Virginia authorities pondered their fate.  Acadians from one vessel were moved up to Richmond, two of the vessels were unloaded at Hampton, and two more at Norfolk.  A hand full of young Acadians managed to slip away and trek overland through fields and forests and across the mountains, back to French Canada.  But most of them remained in Virginia.  Finally, in the spring of 1756, Virginia's House of Burgesses made its decision ... the Acadians must go!  In May, the first shipment of Acadians in hired vessels left for England, and in two weeks all of them had gone--299 to Bristol, 250 to Falmouth, 340 to Southampton, and 336 to Liverpool--1,225 of the original 1,500.   Their ordeal only worsened in the English ports, where they were treated like common criminals.  In 1763, after the war with Britain finally ended, the French government consented to repatriate the survivors to France. ...

Many of the hundreds of Acadians from the St.-Malo area who chose to go to Poitou in 1773 did not care for the venture from the start.  One of them, Jean-Jacques LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, who had come to France via Virginia and England in May 1763, proved to be an especially sharp thorn in the sides of the settlement's promoters.  Back in March 1772, Jean-Jacques, "one of the Acadian representatives of the Saint-Malo department," had submitted a petition to the French government to pay for the emigration of Acadian families to Spanish Louisiana.  Like an earlier entreaty by other Acadians in 1766, Jean-Jacques's petition also was rejected.  Perhaps responding to Acadian frustrations, a council meeting of the king's ministers that summer sparked the idea of settling the exiles" on land belonging to Louis-Nicolas, marquis de Pérusse des Cars, near Châtellerault in the Poitou region.  "Jean-Jacques and his family were among the St.-Malo Acadians who grudgingly went to Poitou, but he did not give up on the idea of going to Louisiana: "... from this date more or less"--March 1772--Jean-Jacques "constantly argued in favor of an emigration to Louisiana, an option that for him seemed as being the most politically acceptable for the government and thus the most likely to succeed."  In November 1774, the smooth-talking Acadian managed to meet with Anne-Robert-Jacques Turgot, King Louis XVI's new controller general, at Versailles.  One suspects that LeBlanc discussed not only Acadian emigration, but also informed the powerful minister of the many problems plaguing his countrymen in Poitou.  Beginning in October 1775, after two years of fruitless effort, most of the Poitou Acadians, including Jean-Jacques and his family, retreated from Châtellerault to the port city of Nantes; Jean-Jacques and Nathalie took the fourth and final convoy out of Châtellerault in March 1776.  The Poitou fiasco must have motivated LeBlanc all the more to take his family to Louisiana.  His name appears on another petition for emigration to the colony in 1777, but this petition also was rejected.  After Jean-Jacques died at Nantes in November 1781, "the Louisiana destination gathered even less support among the Acadians than in his lifetime, as he had been the main promoter of this emigration."  A few years later, Frenchman Henri-Marie Peyroux de la Coudrenière, long-time resident of French Louisiana, and Acadian Olivier Terrio, a master cobbler living in Nantes, took up the cause.  By the summer of 1785, they had succeeded in coaxing over 1,500 of Terrio's fellow Acadians into going to Spanish Louisiana.  Among them were Nathalie Pitre, Jean-Jacques LeBlanc's widow, and two of his teenage children.  ... 

LOUISIANA:  WESTERN SETTLEMENTS

LeBlancs were among the earliest Acadians to find refuge in Louisiana.  The first of them--seven members of the family--reached New Orleans in February 1765 with the Broussard dit Beausoleil party from Halifax via Cap-Français, St.-Domingue.  After a brief stay in the city, during which one of them attempted to exchange his Canadian card money for Louisiana funds, they followed the Broussards to the Attakapas District, where they helped create La Nouvelle-Acadie on the banks of Bayou Teche:

Simon LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 28, came with wife Catherine Thibodeau, age unrecorded, and three children--Cosme or Côme, age 5, Marie-Louise, age 3, and Marie-Angélique, a newborn.  They baptized their daughters at New Orleans within days of reaching the city. 

René LeBlanc, fils, called Petit-René, of Grand-Pré, age 14, Simon's younger brother, probably came with his brother

Isabelle LeBlanc, age unrecorded, sister of Simon and Petit-René, came with husband Victor, son of Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil.  She died at Attakapas in October 1765, probably a victim of the mysterious epidemic that swept through the Teche valley settlements that summer and fall. 

Rose LeBlanc, age 30, sister of the other LeBlancs and widow of Raphaël Broussard, came to Louisiana probably with the family of one of her siblings.  Interestingly, she did not go to Bayou Teche with them but remained at New Orleans, where she became a nun--Louisiana's first Acadian religious.  She took the name Sister Sainte Monique and died of small pox at New Orleans in February 1773; she was only 38 years old.

Descendants of Simon LEBLANC (1736/37-1815; Daniel, Antoine)

Simon, elder son of René LeBlanc and Anne Thériot, born at Grand-Pré in either late 1736 or early 1737, escaped the British roundup at Minas in the fall of 1755 and took refuge on the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore, where he married Catherine Thibodeau in c1758.  They ended up as prisoners at Halifax, where British officials counted them and three children in August 1763.  In late 1764, they left Halifax with the Broussard dit Beausoleil party and reached Louisiana via Cap-Français, St.-Domingue, in February 1765.  Daughter Marie-Angélique, born either aboard ship or at Cap-Français on New Year's Day 1765, was baptized at New Orleans on 20 February 1765, soon after they reached the city.  In April, they followed the Broussards to Bayou Teche.  Catherine died at Attakapas the following November, perhaps a victim of the epidemic that killed dozens of Teche Valley Acadians that summer and fall.  Daughter Marie-Angélique also may have perished in the epidemic.  Spanish officials counted Simon and son Cosme in the La Manque area of the Attakapas District in April 1766.  Simon remarried to Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph dit L'Officier Guilbeau, at Attakapas in c1768.  Marguerite also had come to Louisiana with the Broussards.  She and Simon settled near Carencro, at the northern edge of the district, and at La Grande Pointe on upper Bayou Teche.  Their daughters married into the Barras, Comeaux, and St. Julien (French Creole, not Acadian) families.  Simon died "at his home" at La Pointe in December 1815; the priest who recorded his burial said that Simon was 82 years old when he died, but he was closer to 79.  His succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, the following August.  Most of his nine sons created families of their own and added substantially to the number of LeBlancs on the western prairies.  They settled in a number of communities in the Attakapas District.  Most of them remained at Grand Pointe, but one moved down bayou to Fausse Pointe, one settled at Carencro, and another along the Vermilion.

Onésime Agricole married first cousin Marie Alix, called Alix, daughter of his uncle Alexis LeBlanc, in a civil ceremony in St. Mary Parish in January 1841, and "validated" the marriage at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, the following October.  They settled down bayou.  Onésime's succession record was filed at the Franklin courthouse, St. Mary Parish, in February 1854; he would have been 34 years old that year.  Did he father any sons? 

Placide Agricole married Adèle, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Cyprien Savoie, at the Charenton church, St. Mary Parish, in July 1845.  Their son Cyprien was born near New Iberia, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in June 1849, Aristide in November 1852, Joseph Aladin in May 1859, and Ernest near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in November 1864.  They also had an older son named Agricole, fils. Their daughter married into the Leleux family.

Donat, by his father's first wife, born probably at Halifax in c1764, evidently died young. 

3

Frédéric, also called Louis, from his father's second wife, born at Attakapas in February 1771 and baptized by a Pointe Coupée priest the following April, married Louise Constance, also called Marie Louise, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Thibodeaux, at Attakapas in August 1794.  They settled at Carencro.  Their son Placide was born in September 1795, Narcisse in February 1797, Frédéric, fils in November 1798, Julien or Arvillien in October 1800, and Caliste in September 1802.  They also had a son named Ursin.  Frédéric, père, "resident of Attakapas," died at New Orleans in November 1803; the priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Federico, as he called him, died at age "50 yr.," but he was closer to 32!

3a

Arvillien married Julienne, daughter of fellow Acadian Dominique Babineaux of Carencro, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1820.  They settled at Carencro.  Their son Émilien was born in June 1825 but died the following September, Onésime, perhaps a twin, was born in October 1826, Osémé in September 1828, Treville in June 1830, Narcisse in July 1832, and Émile was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 3 months, in March 1839.  Their daughters married into the Benoit, Cormier, LeBlanc, and Richard families.  Arvillien, called Hervilien by Grand Coteau priest who recorded the burial, died probably at Carencro in July 1849; Arvillien was only 48 years old. 

Onésime may have married fellow Acadian Adélaïde Landry in a civil ceremony in Lafayette Parish in August 1843.  They settled probably near Carencro.  Their son Jean Baptiste was born in May 1857.  They may have been living near New Iberia, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in 1861.  Their daughter married into the Sonnier family at Church Point. 

Osémé married cousin Marie Adeline, called Adeline and Deline, daughter of fellow Acadian Louis Richard, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in May 1849; Marie's mother, also, was a Babineaux.  Their son Aurelien was born near Grand Coteau in March 1850, Louis Alcide in December 1853 but died at age 2 1/2 in May 1856, Alexandre was born in July 1857, and Louis Edmond, called Edmond, in November 1859 but died at age 4 1/2 in January 1864. 

Treville may have died near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in May 1860.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Treville died "at age 27 yrs.," but this Treville would have been a month shy of 30.  Was he the Treville LeBlanc who married fellow Acadian Adélaïde Guidry?  If so, their daughter married a Guidry cousin at nearby Church Point. 

3b

Ursin married Adélaïde, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Melançon, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in December 1825.  Their son, name unrecorded, died in Lafayette Parish a day after his birth in August 1826.  Ursin remarried to Victoire, also called Joséphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Victorin Guidry, at the Vermilionville church in February 1829.  Their son Désiré was born in Lafayette Parish in January 1830, Ursin, fils near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in June 1833, Edmond was baptized at the Vermilionville church, age 10 months, in November 1838, Athanase was born in St. Martin Parish in December 1840, Placide le jeune in October 1844, Joseph Ernest in December 1846, Dominic was baptized at the Breaux Bridge church, age 1 month, in September 1848, and Eusèbe was born in June 1854.  Ursin, père died in St. Martin Parish in September 1856; the St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Ursin died "at age 59 yrs."; his succession record, which names his wife, was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse in May 1858. 

Ursin, fils, by his father's second wife, married cousin Marie Azélie, called Azélie, daughter of fellow Acadian Edmond Guidry, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1856.  They settled near Breaux Bridge.  Their son Antoine was born in April 1857.  Ursin, fils's succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse in March 1865; he would have been 32 years old that year. 

Edmond, by his second wife, married cousin Célestine, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Guidry, at the Breaux Bridge church, St. Martin Parish, in September 1861.  During the War of 1861, Edmond likely served as a first corporal in Company D of the Orleans Guard Battalion Louisiana Infantry, raised in St. Martin Parish, which fought at Shiloh, Tennessee, in April 1862.  Edmond survived the horrific battle and in May was transferred, along with most of the men in his unit, to Company A of the 30th (Sumter) Regiment Louisiana Infantry; Edmond was a private in this unit.  Soon after the transfer, Edmond fell sick at Magnolia, Mississippi.  He was sent home on extended sick furlough but never rejoined his company.  He died near Breaux Bridge in March 1863; he was only 25 years old.  His succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse, St. Landry Parish, less than a week after his death.  Célestine remarried to a Dupuis the following December.

A succession record for Désiré, by his father's second wife, was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, in October 1862.  Désiré would have been 32 years old that year.  Did he marry?  If this was a post-mortem succession, was his death war-related? 

3c

Caliste married Marguerite Eurasie, called Eurasie, daughter of fellow Acadian François Bernard, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in October 1829.  Their son Aurelien was baptized at the Vermilionville church, age 2 months, in October 1830 but died at age 3 in October 1833.  Their daughters married into the Brouse or Bruce, Comeaux, and Prejean families.  Except for its blood, did this family line survive? 

3d

Placide l'aîné may have died in Lafayette Parish in September 1857.  The Grand Coteau priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Placide died "at age 60 yrs."; this Placide would have been 62; his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in June 1858.  Did he marry? 

3e

A few LeBlancs who came to Louisiana from France in 1785 settled on the western prairies, but no new family lines came of it: 

Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, LeBlanc, age 54, widow of Pierre-Isidore Trahan, came to Louisiana with five children, ages 21 to 9, aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  She went at first to Manchac, on the river below Baton Rouge, before following at least two of her children to the prairies.  She died at Carencro in November 1804, in her early 70s. 

.

Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc of Rivière-aux-Canards, came to Louisiana with wife Élisabeth or Isabelle, daughter of Jean-Baptiste Aucoin, and a 19-year-old Semer niece aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships from France that reached New Orleans in November.  The niece married a Frenchman from Marseille at New Orleans in January 1786.  Jean-Baptiste and Élisabeth went to San Bernardo, an Isleño community on the river below New Orleans, before moving to the prairies.  Jean-Baptiste died by August 1797, when Élisabeth remarried at Opelousas.  One wonders if they had any children, and if Jean-Baptiste had died on the river before his widow moved to Opelousas.

~

During the late colonial and throughout the entire antebellum period, more LeBlancs from the river, including a set of brothers, and LeBlancs from Bayou Lafourche, moved to the prairies and added substantially to the western branch of the family: 

Marie-Josèphe LeBlanc, widow of Athanase Breaux, died at a daughter's home in Lafayette Parish in November 1825, in her early 80s.  Her succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in December. 

Descendants of Gilles LEBLANC (c1757-1832; Daniel, René, Jacques)

Gilles, younger son of Joseph LeBlanc and Élisabeth or Isabelle Gaudet, born during Le Grand Dérangement probably on the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore in c1757, followed his family from Halifax to Louisiana in 1765.  He settled with them at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where he married Théotiste, daughter of fellow Acadian Bonaventure Godin dit Bellefontaine of Rivière St.-Jean, in February 1781.  Their daughter married into the Bernard and Dugas families and settled on the western prairies.  Gilles remarried to cousin Marine, daughter of Désiré LeBlanc and widow of Joseph dit Dios Babin, at Ascension on the river in December 1783.  They were visiting New Orleans in November 1791 when a daughter was baptized there.  In the 1790s or early 1800s, they moved from the river to Bayou Teche and settled at Fausse Pointe, where Marine died in September 1811, in her mid-50s; her succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, the following November.  Gilles remarried again--his third marriage--to Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Bourgeois of St.-Jacques and widow of Auguste Gravois, at the St. Martinville church in September 1816; he was in his late 50s at the time of the wedding.  All three of his sons lived in St. James Parish but settled at Fausse Pointe, and his daughter also settled on the western prairies; nevertheless, Gilles returned to the river in his old age.  He died in St. James Parish in September 1832; he was 74 years old.

E. Lee's Louisiana Tigers was short-lived.  Edmond was killed in action at the Battle of Malvern Hill, Virginia, in July 1862 and was buried by his comrades on the battlefield.  His remains were found in the late 1880s, returned to St. Martinville, and, after elaborate ceremonies that involved the entire town, he was re-interred in the family vault at the St. Martin of Tours, also called St. Michael's, Catholic cemetery on the east side of Bayou Teche.  Edmond was only 24 years old at the time of his death.  He did not marry.

Descendants of Jacques-Pierre-Marie LEBLANC (1771-1854; Daniel, René, Jacques)

Jacques-Pierre-Marie, younger son of Simon LeBlanc and his second wife Marie Trahan, born at Bangor, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in June 1771, followed his family to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and settled with them at Manchac, south of Baton Rouge, where he married Marie-Rose, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Brasseaux, in April 1798.  They moved to Fausse Pointe on Bayou Teche by the early 1810s.  Their daughter married into the Dugas family.  Jacques died in St. Martin Parish in February 1854; the St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Jacques died "at age 88 yrs.," but he was "only" 82; his succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse in December 1855.  Just two of his many sons married, and only one of them had sons of his own. 

1

Oldest son Marcellin, born at Manchac on the river in July 1799, died at his parents' home at Fausse Pointe in October 1822.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Marcellin died "at age about 20 years," but he was 23.  He probably did not marry. 

2

Jacques-Nicolas, called Jacques-Colin, Colin, and Paulin, born at Manchac in August 1803, married Marcellite Arthémise, called Arthémise, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Babin of La Pointe, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in August 1823.  Their son Alexandre was born in St. Martin Parish in December 1829, Antoine Sevigne, called Sevigne, in December 1831, Joseph Ernest, called Ernest, in January 1838, and Abner Aristide in January 1840.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Begnaud, Gradenigo, Magee, Pellerin (French Creole, not Acadian), Thibodeaux, and Trahan families.  Colin died in St. Martin Parish in September 1855; the St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Colin died "at age 48 yrs.," but he was 52; his succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse in October. 

2a

Alexandre married Marguerite Lodoiska, called Lodoiska, daughter of French Creole Ursin Ozenne, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in February 1852.  During the War of 1861, Alexandre may have served in the Yellow Jackets Battalion Louisiana Infantry, raised in St. Martin Parish, and in Company K of the Consolidated 18th Regiment and Yellow Jackets Battalion Infantry, both of which fought in Louisiana.  In October 1862, at age 32, perhaps as a conscript, he enlisted probably in the Yellow Jackets at Bayou des Allemands, southeast of New Orleans, and was transferred to Company K of the Consolidated 18th Regiment and Yellow Jackets Battalion Infantry when that unit was created at Simmesport, Louisiana, in November 1863.  In late February 1864, Alexandre was reported sick at "Taylor Hospital" and was admitted to the Confederate general hospital at Shreveport in late March.  He may have been the Alexandre LeBlanc who died in June 1864; the St. Martinville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Alexandre died "at age 35 yrs."; this Alexandre would have been 34.  If this was him, his daughter Julie was only 2 1/2 years old when he died.  Did he father any sons? 

2b

Sevigne married Celima or Celina, daughter of French Creole Olivier Blanchet, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in May 1852; Celima's mother was a Boudreaux.  Their son Donat Jules was born in St. Martin Parish in May 1854, Joseph Colin near Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, in November 1855, Juste in November 1863, and Blanchet, age unrecorded, died in September 1870.

Descendants of Joseph Casimir LEBLANC (1807-; Daniel, Antoine, Jacques dit Petit Jacques, Jean-Jacques)

Joseph Casimir, called Casimir, second son of Jean Baptiste LeBlanc and Marie Henriette Boudreaux, born at St. James in July 1807, may have married Orellia, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Sonnier, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1845.  Casimir married, or remarried to, cousin Cidalise, daughter of fellow Acadian Olivier Boudreaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in June 1852; Casimir was 44 years old at the time of the wedding.  They settled in St. Landry Parish.

Oldest son Jean Charles was born in St. Martin Parish in August 1839. 

2

Jacques was born in St. Martin Parish in February 1843 and baptized at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, the following November.

Other LEBLANCs on the Western Prairies

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many LeBlancs in the western parishes with known Acadian lines of the family there.  The priests at Grand Coteau, New Iberia, St. Martinville, and Abbeville were especially negligent in their recordkeeping.  One suspects that some of these LeBlancs were French Canadians and French Creoles, not Acadians, and that others who lived on the prairies during the post-war period were Afro Creoles once owned by "white" LeBlancs: 

Donat LeBlanc married Dorothée Comeaux and settled at Attakapas by the late 1790s. 

Joseph LeBlanc "died at the home of Michel Prudhomme in the Bois de Mallet area [of St. Landry Parish] at age 48 years" in October 1818.  One wonders if Joseph was Acadian.

Jean LeBlanc married Denise Frugé, also called a Duhon, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in January 1836.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did give the couples' parents' names.  Their son Louis was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 9 months, in December 1837, Meran was born in St. Landry Parish in February 1847, and Joseph Meteore in December 1856.  Their daughter married into the Berbal family. 

Carmelite LeBlanc's son Zéolin was baptized at the Vermilionville church Lafayette Parish, age 9 months, in July 1836, and Joseph at age 6 months in August 1839.  The priest who recorded the boys' baptisms did not give the father's name or even Carmelite's parents' names. 

Clementine LeBlaugh, as the parish clerk spelled her name, married Joseph Guideroz in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in July 1838.  The recording clerk did not give the couples' parents' names.  One wonders if Clementine was a LeBlanc, much less an Acadian. 

Éloi LeBlanc married Jeanne Leroi and settled near New Iberia, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, by the early 1840s. 

Louis LeBlanc died near New Iberia, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in May 1841.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names, said that Louis died "at age 4-5 mths."  Was Louis's father Acadian?

A LeBlanc family living on the western prairies during the antebellum and post-war periods cannot be linked by area church and civil records to other members of the family in the area: 

Descendants of Jean LEBLANC (?-)

Jean LeBlanc married Eulalie, called Lolie, Tournier, also called Jouinier.  Their daughter married into the Gallo or Gallot family.

Étienne married Marie Alicia or Lucie, daughter of Similen McCarthy, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in December 1866; Marie's mother was a LeBlanc

LOUISIANA:  RIVER SETTLEMENTS

Most of the LeBlancs who came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 were not part of the Broussard dit Beausoleil party.  These LeBlancs--17 or 18 more members of the family--arrived later in the year and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques on the river above New Orleans where 20 Acadians from Georgia had settled the year before.  So many Acadians settled at Cabanocé, in fact, that the area soon became known as the Acadian Coast: 

Joseph LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 45, came with wife Isabelle Gaudet of Port Royal, age 46, and four children--Anne, age 17, Joseph, fils, age 15, Isabelle, age 11, and Gilles, age 8.  They had no more children in Louisiana.  Their daughters married into the Duhon and LeBlanc families.  Daughter Isabelle, widow of cousin Simon LeBlanc, died in Ascension Parish in May 1815, in her early 60s.  Daughter Anne followed her husband to upper Bayou Lafourche and died there in her early 80s.  Son Gilles married twice on the river but in his final days settled on Bayou Teche.  Joseph, fils remained on the river.  Joseph, père died at St. James in July 1805, a widower; he was 85 years old. 

Étienne LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 43, older brother of Simon and René dit Petit René of Attakapas, came with wife Élisabeth or Isabelle Boudrot of Grand-Pré, age 43, and seven children--Simon le jeune, age 21, Marguerite, age 16, Étienne, fils, age 14, Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, age 7, Mathurin, age 6, Joseph, age 3, and newborn Marie-Marthe-Élisabeth.  Étienne and Élisabeth had no more children in Louisiana.  A son and a daughter were baptized at New Orleans in early December 1765, which gives an idea of when the family reached the colony.  Étienne died probably at Cabanocé before September 1769, when his wife was listed as a widow in a census there.  Their daughters married into the Lamothe, Landry, LeBlanc, Le Conte, and Robichaux families.  Daughter Madeleine married three times.  She, one of her sisters, and brother Mathurin settled on Bayou Lafourche.  Étienne and Élisabeth's other children--including Simon le jeune, Étienne, fils, and Joseph--remained on the river near their widowed mother. 

Marcel LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 31, came with wife Marie-Josèphe Breau of Cobeguit, age 29, and daughter Marguerite, age 2.  They had more children, including sons, in Louisiana.  Marguerite married into the Dugas family and died near Convent, St. James Parish, a widow, in September 1846; the priest who recorded her burial said that Marguerite died at "age 91 yrs.," but she was "only" in her early 80s. 

Marie LeBlanc, age 21, came with husband Athanase Breau of Chepoudy, age 30, and two very young children.  They remained on the river. 

Rosalie LeBlanc, age 20, came with husband Paul Bourgeois of Chignecto, age 33, and no children.  They remained at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where Rosalie remarried to Jean-Baptiste, son of fellow Acadian Pierre Bourgeois of Chignecto and widower of Marie-Madeleine Bourg and Osite Melançon, in January 1804; she was in her late 50s at the time of the wedding.  Rosalie died near Convent, St. James Parish, in March 1815, in her late 60s. 

André LeBlanc, age unrecorded, may have been a refugee from Halifax. 

These LeBlancs from Halifax, especially Marcel and his descendants, created a large center of family settlement on the Acadian Coast:

Descendants of Marcel LEBLANC (c1734-?; Daniel, René, Jacques)

Marcel, son of Jacques LeBlanc, fils and Catherine-Marie-Josèphe Forest, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1734, escaped the British roundup at Minas in the fall of 1755 and took refuge on the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore.  His parents and siblings were not so lucky; the British deported them to Pennsylvania, but they moved on to Maryland in the late 1750s or early 1760s.  Meanwhile, Marcel married Marie-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Breau of Cobeguit, at Restigouche on the Baie des Chaleurs in November 1760.  Soon after their marriage, the British confined them to a prison camp in Nova Scotia.  They came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 with a 2-year-old daughter and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where they had many more children.  (If they had other children in Nova Scotia, their names have been lost to history.)  Marcel's parents with three of his younger sisters, and two of his younger brothers, came to Cabanocé in 1766 with the first group of Acadian exiles from Maryland.  Spanish officials counted Marcel and Marie-Josèphe on the right, or west, bank of the river at St.-Jacques in 1769 and 1777.  Their daughters married into the Chiasson, Dugas, and Melançon families.  Marcel had only two sons, but they fathered many sons of their own.  His older son remained on the river, but his younger son moved to upper Bayou Lafourche during the early antebellum period.

Older son Sylvain- or Sylvestre-Marie, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in December 1770, married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Godin dit Bellefontaine, at St.-Jacques in August 1789.  Their son Paul-Sylvestre, also called Luc-Paul and Paul-Sylvain, was born at St.-Jacques in September 1790, Marcellin in c1795, Jean-Baptiste in October 1796, Marcel le jeune, also called Marcellin, in November 1800, and Simon in February 1805.  They also had a son named Joseph.  Their daughters married into the Lanoux, LeBlanc, Melançon, Prejean, and Richard families.  Sylvain died in Ascension Parish in January 1834; he was 63 years old. 

1a

Paul Sylvestre married cousin Adélaïde, called Délaïde and perhaps also Adeline, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Melançon, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in May 1811; Adélaïde's mother was a LeBlanc.  Their son Paul, fils was born in St. James Parish in March 1812, Faustin, also called Sosthène and Justin, near Convent, St. James Parish, in February 1818, and Marcellin le jeune in November 1819 but died at age 1 in February 1821.  Their daughters married into the Arceneaux and Lanoux families, and perhaps into the Chauvin family as well.  Paul Sylvestre may have died near Convent, St. James Parish, in March 1822; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or evem mention a wife, said that Paul died at "age 30"; Paul Sylvestre would have been 31.  One of his sons settled in West Baton Rouge Parish, but the other one remained in St. James. 

Paul, fils married Marie Esther, called Esther, daughter of fellow Acadian Manuel Braud, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in October 1830.  They lived near the boundary between St. James and Ascension parishes.  Their son, name unrecorded, died at age 11 days in August 1831, Paul Sylvain was born in October 1832, Paul Faustin, called Faustin, in August 1834 but died at age 4 in November 1838, Zenon was born in April 1836 but died at age 1 in May 1837, Faustin le jeune was born in January 1841, Joseph in July 1845 but may have died at age 9 in November 1854, and Augustin was born in May 1851.  Their daughter married into the Falgout and Pabane families.  Paul, fils died near Convent, St. James Parish, in August 1863; he was only 51 years old.

1c

Jean Baptiste married cousin Marie Cléonise, called Cléonise and Léonise, daughter of Bonaventure Godin dit Bellefontaine, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in May 1815.  Their son Lessin, perhaps also called Jean Baptiste, fils, was born near Convent in December 1819, Sylvain in November 1821, a son, name unrecorded, died 15 days after his birth in September 1828, Joseph died at age 3 months in July 1834, and Landry was born in September 1837 but died the following November.  Their daughters married into the Bourgeois, Gautreaux, Gravois, and Louviere families.  Jean Baptiste, père may have died near Convent in March 1844; the priest who recorded his marriage, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Jean Baptiste "of Ascension Parish" died at "age 47 yrs.," so this probably was him. 

Jean Baptiste, fils/Lessin married Marie Corinne, called Corinne, daughter of fellow Acadian Désiré Arceneaux, also called Lanoux, probably in a civil ceremony in Ascension Parish, and sanctified the marriage at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1843.  Their son Camille was born in Ascension Parish in May 1842, Émile in July 1849 but died at age 2 in July 1851, Joseph was born in March 1855 but died at age 1 1/2 in October 1856, Adam was born in September 1857, Joseph Aristide, perhaps their son, died in February 1862 8 days after his birth, and Louis George, also perhaps their son, was born in October 1863 but died at age 9 months in July 1864.  Their daughters married into the Brasset and Gaudin families.

1d

Marcel le jeune married Henriette Scholastique, called Colastie, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Lanoux, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in August 1823.  They lived near the boundary of Ascension and St. James parishes.  Their son Désiré was born in July 1824, and Joseph Marcellin or Marcel, fils in May 1833 but died at age 14 months in July 1834.  Their daughter married into the Brooks family.  He may have been the Marcel LeBlanc who died in March 1860; the Convent priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give the age of the deceased. 

Désiré married Félicité, daughter of fellow Acadian Noël Richard, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1842.  They settled near the boundary between Ascension and St. James parishes.  Their son Marcel le jeune was born in December 1842, Joseph Euphémon, called Euphémon, in November 1844, Désiré, fils in February 1846 but may have died at age 2 1/2 in December 1848, Laurent Osémé was born in May 1851, Jean Baptiste Jules in May 1853, Euphémon le jeune in October 1856, and Optime in June 1859.

1e

Simon married cousin Marie Scholastique, called Scholastique, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Gautreaux, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in May 1830; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Simon Adam was born in Ascension Parish in November 1844 but died the following May.  Their daughters married into the Landry, Lanoux, and LeBlanc families.  Simon died in Ascension Parish in March 1852; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Simon died at "age 46 years"; this Simon would have been 47; he was listed as deceased in the marriage record of a daughter in October 1853, so this probably was him.  His family line, except for its blood, may have died with him. 

1f

Joseph married Eugènie, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Melançon, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in August 1830.  Their son Joseph, fils was born near Convent in 1831 but died at age 5 in September 1836, and Camille was born in October 1839.  Their daughters married into the Bertaut (French Creole, not Acadian) and Rodrigue families. 

2

Younger son Paul-Olivier, called Olivier, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in September 1776, married Émilie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Lalande, at St.-Jacques in August 1797, and remarried to cousin Marie Madeleine, called Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Gabriel Braud of Assumption Parish, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in June 1818; Olivier was in his early 40s at the time of the wedding.  They settled near the boundary between St. James and Ascension parishes.  During the early 1830s, Olivier and his second wife moved to upper Bayou Lafourche, settling perhaps near the boundary between Ascension and Assumption parishes.  His oldest son remained on the river, though one of his grandsons by that son settled on Bayou Lafourche.  Olivier's five other married sons and at least two of his daughters also settled on Bayou Lafourche.

Descendants of Simon LEBLANC (c1744-1810; Daniel, Antoine, René)

Simon, eldest son of Étienne LeBlanc and Élisabeth or Isabelle Boudrot, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1744, followed his parents in 1755 to the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore.  He was counted with them at Fort Edward, formerly Pigiguit, Nova Scotia, in the early 1760s and followed them from Halifax to Louisiana in 1765.  He settled with them at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques and married cousin Élisabeth, or Isabelle, daughter of Joseph LeBlanc, at Ascension, upriver from St.-Jacques, in September 1772.  Spanish officials counted them on the right, or west, bank of the river at nearby Ascension in 1777.  Their daughter married into the Carmouche family.  Simon le jeune died in Ascension Parish in July 1810; the Donaldson priest who recorded his burial said that Simon, "nat. Acadia, spouse [of] Isabelle LeBlanc," died at "age 66."  Two of his sons and many of his grandsons settled on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Another son remained on the river. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, born probably at Ascension in c1773, married Apolline, daughter of fellow Acadian François Dugas, at Ascension in February 1797.  Joseph remarried twice at Ascension, and all of his children were born there.  By the mid-1820s, he had moved his family to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he died a few years later.

3c

Joseph Hermogène married Marie Julienne, daughter of fellow Acadian Elisa Breaux, at the Paincourtville church, Lafourche Parish, in May 1858; Joseph Hermogène was 50 years old at the time of the wedding; one wonders who Marie Julienne's father may have been.  They remained on Bayou Lafourche. 

4

Louis, born at Ascension in September 1783, died at age 13 in August 1795. 

5

Benjamin, baptized at Ascension, age unrecorded, in February 1786, married Félicité, daughter of Joachim Marois, at Ascension in September 1806; Félicité's mother was a Foret.  Their son Joseph Rosémond, called Rosémond, was born in Ascension Parish in January 1810 but died at age 7 1/2 in October 1817, and Étienne Marcellin, called Marcellin, was born in September 1811.  Their daughter married a LeBlanc cousin on Bayou Lafourche.  Benjamin died probably in St. James Parish in October 1817; he was only 31 years old.

Descendants of Joseph LEBLANC, fils (c1750-1818; Daniel, René, Jacques)

Joseph, fils, elder son of Joseph LeBlanc and Élisabeth or Isabelle Gaudet, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1750, followed his parents to the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore in 1755, to a prison-of-war camp in Nova Scotia in the early 1760s, and to Louisiana in 1765.  He settled with them at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where he married cousin Marguerite, daughter of Étienne LeBlanc, in February 1771.  Spanish officials counted them on the right, or west, bank of the river at St.-Jacques in 1777.  Their daughters married into the Daigre, Hébert, and LeBlanc families and perhaps into the Rivet family as well.  Joseph, fils remarried to Pélagie, daughter of Alexandre Doiron and widow of Antoine Rodriguez of Florida, at St.-Jacques in July 1787.  Their daughters married into the Dugas, LeBlanc, and Melançon families; one of them settled on the western prairies.  Joseph, fils died in St. James Parish in October 1818; the St. James priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph died at "age about 70 yrs."  Joseph, fils' younger sons by his second wife settled on upper Bayou Lafourche during the early antebellum period. 

1

Oldest son Donat, also called Simon, by his father's first wife, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in November 1773, married Marie-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Melançon, at St.-Jacques in December 1801.  Their son Joseph le jeune was born at St.-Jacques in October 1802 but died at age 5 in October 1807, Louis Onésime, called Onésime, was born in August 1804, Marcellin or Marcellus Hermogène in October 1808, Pierre in February 1815 but died the following August, Paul was born near Convent, St. James Parish, in March 1819, another Joseph le jeune in Ascension Parish in August 1821, and Privat Euphémon in August 1829.  They also had a son named Donat, fils.  Their daughters married into the Dugas, Gaudet, Gautreaux, LeBlanc, and Mathieu families.  Donat, père died in St. James Parish in October 1843; the St. James priest who recorded his burial said that Donat died at "age 64 yrs. and 6 days," but he was closer to 70.  One of his sons moved from St. James to St. Landry Parish by the late 1850s, and at least one of his daughters was living in St. Landry Parish during the post-war period. 

1a

Onésime married Marie Joséphine, called Joséphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Isidore Blanchard, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in May 1826.  They lived near the boundary between Ascension and St. James parishes.  Their son Tranquille Octave, called Octave, was born in July 1827, and Onésime Elphége, called Elphége, was baptized at the Convent church, St. James Parish, age 6 months, in August 1834.  Their daughter married into the Gravois family.  Onésime remarried to cousin Émilie, daughter of fellow Acadian Donat Landry, at the Convent church in January 1839; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.

1c

Joseph married Apollonie or Apolline, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Gautreaux, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in July 1841; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of affinity in order to marry.  They lived near the boundary between Ascension and St. James parishes.  Their son Joseph Genois, called Genois, was born in January 1844.  Joseph, père may have died in St. James Parish in June 1852; the St. James priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age 30 yrs." and "left [his] wife with three or four children"; this Joseph would have been 31, so this could have been him.   

Joseph Genois married Marie Amelie, daughter of German Creole Jean Baptiste Ory, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in February 1867.  Their son Joseph Georges was born in St. James Parish in January 1868, and Louis Ovide in April 1869. 

1d

Marcellus married Claire Elisa, daughter of fellow Acadian Valentin Theriot, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in October 1841.  Their son Ernest Jacques or Jacques Ernest was born in St. James Parish in September 1843.  On wonders if he was the Marcel LeBlanc who died in March 1860; the Convent priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give the age of the deceased. 

Jacques Ernest married Armentine, daughter of French Creole Édouard LeBoeuf, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in March 1870. 

1e

2

Benjamin, by his father's first wife, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in November 1779, may have married fellow Acadian Thérèse Babin.  Their son Benjamin, fils died at Ascension a day after his birth in May 1803.  This family line probably did not survive. 

3

Joseph III, by his father's first wife, born on the Acadian Coast in c1782, died at age 17 in December 1799.  He probably did not marry. 

4

Simon, by his father's second wife, born at St.-Jacques in October 1788, married Marie Bathilde, Mathilde, or Basille, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Babin, at Ascension in November 1806.  They moved to upper Bayou Lafourche by the early 1830s.

André LEBLANC (?-; Daniel?)

Spanish officials counted André LeBlanc at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in April 1766.  A boy and a girl also were counted in his household.  If he was Acadian, he likely came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765.  But, despite his living in an Acadian community, one wonders if he was Acadian.  Was he was a French-Creole or French-Canadian LeBlanc who had moved from New Orleans, Pointe Coupée, or even Natchitoches into what was becoming an Acadian community?  Who were his parents?  How old was he in April 1766?  Was he married?  Who were the children with him?  Were they his children, his younger siblings, or young cousins?  What happened to him in Louisiana?

More LeBlancs--including six families, several wives, and at least two orphans, 33 members of the family in all (including two not yet born), one of the largest single Acadian family groups to emigrate to Louisiana--reached New Orleans in September 1766 after a three-month voyage from Baltimore, Maryland, via Cap-Français; the first contingent of Acadian exiles from that British colony.  These LeBlancs, most of them from the Minas Basin, settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques near their cousins already there:

Jacques LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 58, came with wife Catherine-Marie-Josèphe Forest of Pigiguit, age 56, and three unmarried daughters--Catherine, age 16, Osite, age 14, and Marguerite, age unrecorded.  Jacques and Catherine-Marie-Josèphe had no more children in Louisiana.  Two of their daughters married into the Babin and Lanoux families and remained on the river.  Jacques died at St.-Jacques in February 1795, age 87.  Daughter Osite died in Ascension Parish in June 1813, a widow in her early 60s.  Catherine died near Convent, St. James Parish, in January 1821, age 71, a widow. 

Sylvain LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 25, Jacques's son, came with wife Marie-Madeleine LeBlanc, age unrecorded, and son Simon, age 2.  They had at least one more son in Louisiana.  Sylvain remarried probably at Cabanocé in the late 1760s. 

Paul LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 23, another of Jacques's sons, came with wife Agnès or Anne Babin, age 23, and son Marcel, an infant.  Anne was pregnant when they reached the colony; daughter Marie-Rose was born at Cabanocé.  They had more children in Louisiana. 

Madeleine LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 54, widow of Jean-Baptiste Melanson, came with three unmarried children, ages 25, 23, and 21, and a large extended family of marriage children and in-laws from Snow Hill, Maryland.  She lived with son Charles Melançon on the left, or east, bank of the river at nearby Ascension. 

Jean-Pierre LeBlanc, age 39, Madeleine LeBlanc's son-in-law, came with wife Osite Melanson, age 34, and three children--Isaac, age 5, Joseph dit Josime, age 4, and Hélène, age 1.  Osite was pregnant when they reached the colony; son Simon was born at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques soon after they settled there.  Daughter Hélène married into the Bourgeois family and died near Convent, St. James Parish, a widow, in November 1847; the priest who recorded her burial said she died at "age 90 yrs.," but she was probably in her early 80s. 

Désiré LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 49, came with wife Marie-Madeleine Landry, age 43, and 10 children--Simon, age 24, Isaac, age 20, Jérôme, age 17, Élisabeth or Isabelle, age 15, Désiré, fils, age 13, Marine, age 11, Osite, age 8, Benjamin, age 6, Anselme, age 4, and Marie, age unrecorded.  They had another son in Louisiana.  Daughter Osite died in Ascension Parish in January 1808, a widow, at age 50. 

Pierre LeBlanc, age 35, came with wife Anne Landry, age 29, and daughter Anne-Rose or Rose-Anne, age 7.  They had more children in Louisiana. 

Anne LeBlanc, age 34, came with husband Joseph Bujole of Pigiguit, age 43, and five children, ages 15 to 1.

Marie LeBlanc, age 32, widow of Joseph Richard, came with a 6-year-old daughter. 

Marie-Marthe LeBlanc, age 17, an orphan, may have come alone.  She married Jacques, fils, son of French Canadian Jacques Lachaussée of Ste.-Anne, Côte de Beaupré, at Cabanocé in February 1768, and remarried to Paul, son of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Breaux, at Cabanocé or nearby Ascension in c1770. 

Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, LeBlanc, age 11, also an orphan, came probably with the family of Amand Gautrot, which whom she was still living at Ascension in 1770.  She married Anselme, son of fellow Acadian Charles Foret, there in February 1774 and died in Ascension Parish in May 1809, a widow in her mid-50s. 

The LeBlancs from Maryland, especially Désiré and his descendants, added significantly to the center of family settlement on the Acadian Coast:

Descendants of Désiré LEBLANC (c1717-1777; Daniel, René)

Désiré, son René LeBlanc, fils and his first wife Élisabeth or Isabelle Melanson, born at Grand-Pré in c1717, married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Abraham Landry, at Grand-Pré in c1740.  British forces deported them to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted them at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore, in July 1763.  They came to Louisiana in 1766 with 10 children and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where they had another son.  Spanish officials counted them on the right, or west, bank of the river at Cabanocé in 1769 and on the same side of the river at Ascension, just upriver, the following year.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Landry, and LeBlanc families.  Désiré may have died at Ascension in March 1777; the priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give the age of the deceased, and, insultingly, called Désiré simply a "married male"; the ages given for Désiré in the censuses of 1769 and 1770 give an estimated birth year of c1717, so he would have been 60 years old at the time of his death.  Most of his seven sons created families of their own and contributed substantially to the number of LeBlancs in South Louisiana.  His grandsons settled not only on the Acadian Coast but also on Bayou Lafourche and the western prairies.  They were especially plentiful in Ascension Parish, near where their immigrant ancestor had settled--not bad for this "married male" from Minas.

Oldest son Simon, born at Grand-Pré in c1742, married Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Arceneaux, at Cabanocé in November 1767.  Their son Antoine-Alexandre, sometimes called Simon, was baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in June 1770 (he was, in fact, the first baptism at the St.-Jacques church), Édouard was born in May 1772 and baptized at Ascension the following August, and Simon Benjamin, called Benjamin le jeune, was baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in June 1780, after his father had died.  Their daughters married into the Babin and Richard families.  Simon's oldest son moved to Bayou Lafourche before moving on to the western prairies, where Simon's youngest son also settled.

Camille married cousin Nesida, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Theriot, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in November 1851; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Camille died in Ascension Parish in November 1853; he was only 28 years old.  Was he a victim of the yellow fever epidemic that plague South Louisiana during the summer and fall of 1853?  Did he father any sons?

Adolphe married double cousin Marie Marguerite, called Marguerite, daughter of Privat LeBlanc, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in April 1850; Marie's mother was a LeBlanc; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Léonce Eugène was born in Ascension Parish in June 1852, Vincent Armand Elphége in March 1854, and Joseph Edgard or Edgar in May 1856 but died at age 3 in April 1859.  Marguerite died in Ascension Parish in August 1863; she was only 40 years old.  Adolphe remarried to Marie or Mary, daughter of Anglo American William Niles or Wiles and widow of ___ Peiret, at the Houma church, Terrebonne Parish, in August 1868; Adolphe was 43 years old at the time of the wedding.  They returned to the river.  Their son John Adolpho, fils was born in Ascension Parish in September 1869.

Casimir may have married Orellia, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Sonnier, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in March 1849; if this was him, Casimir was 49 years old at the time of the wedding, so one might conclude this was not him but another Casimir LeBlanc of St. James Parish. 

2

Descendants of Paul LEBLANC (c1743-?; Daniel, René, Jacques)

Paul, younger son of Jacques LeBlanc, fils and Catherine-Marie-Josèphe Forest, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1741, followed his family into exile in Pennsylvania in 1755 and on to Maryland by July 1763, when he was counted with them at Oxford, on Maryland's Eastern Shore.  He married fellow Acadian Agnès or Anne Babin probably in Maryland during the mid-1760s.  With an infant son, they followed his parents and his older brother to Louisiana in 1766 and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques.  A daughter was soon born to them there, so Agnès/Anne may have been pregnant on the voyage to Louisiana.  Spanish officials counted them on the left, or east, bank of the river at St.-Jacques in 1769 and 1777.  Their daughter married into the Gautreaux family.  Four of his eight sons married, but only the lines of his two older sons seem to have survived.  One of his older sons lived on the western prairies, and two of his grandsons settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, but most of his descendants remained on the Acadian Coast.

Omer married Élisabeth, daughter of Henriette Eliser or Elizer, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1861; the priest who recorded the marriage did not give Élisabeth's father's name, so one wonders who he was.  They settled near Gonzales.  Their son Paul Evariste was born in November 1861. 

2d

Destival married Marie Sidalise, called Sidalise, daughter of fellow Acadian Simonette Boudreaux, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in May 1828.  Their son Paul Désiré was born near Convent, St. James Parish, in September 1829, Louis Oscar, called Oscar, in Ascension Parish in May 1834 but died at age 4 in August 1838, Paul Faustin, called Faustin, was born in February 1839 but died at age 8 1/2 in November 1847, and Onésime Edwin was born in February 1843.  Their daughter married into the Brasset family.  Destival died in Ascension Parish in May 1844; he was only 37 years old.

3

Laurent, a twin, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in August 1773, probably died young. 

4

Paul, Laurent's twin, also may have died young.  One wonders if he also was called Hippolyte.

5

Augustin, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in October 1778, married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Joachim Mire, at St.-Jacques in February 1798.  Their daughter married into the Braud family.  They may have had no sons.  One wonders if Augustin also was called Hippolyte.

6

Another Laurent, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in April 1781, may have died young.  One wonders if he also was called Hippolyte.

7

Sylvain, born probably at St.-Jacques in the early 1780s, married Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Duhon, at St.-Jacques in May 1803.  Their son Jean Baptiste was born at St. James in March 1804 but died at age 7 1/2 in September 1811.  Their daughter married a LeBlanc cousin.  Sylvain died in St. James Parish in June 1808; the priest who recorded his burial said that Sylvain was "age about 45 yrs." when he died, but he probably was closer to 25.  His line of the family, except for its blood, may have died with him. 

8

Youngest son Hippolyte, born probably at St.-Jacques, died near Convent, St. James Parish, in February 1823.  The priest who recorded his burial did not give Hippolyte's age at the time of his death nor mention a wife.

In July 1767, more LeBlancs--nearly two dozen of them, including three more families--reached New Orleans from Maryland via Cap-Français with dozens of fellow Acadians.  Spanish officials insisted that these Maryland exiles settle not at Cabanocé or on the western prairies but at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville, a new Acadian community on the river just south of Bayou Manchac.  The new arrivals protested at first to Spanish Governor Ulloa but then agreed to the arrangement when they realized that St.-Gabriel was not far distant from Cabanocé, where many of their kinsmen lived.  The stretch of the river around St.-Gabriel, in fact, would soon be called the Upper Acadian Coast:

Marie-Josèphe LeBlanc, age 55, widow of Joseph Richard, came with two unmarried sons, ages 27 and 20. 

Jean-Charles LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 53, son of Acadian resistance leader Joseph LeBlanc dit Le Maigre, "the Skinny," came with wife Judith-Marguerite Landry, age 40, and five children--Jean-Baptiste dit Agros, age 15, Joseph, later called Agros, age 12, Marie, age 5, Simon, who also would be called Agros, age 4, and Anne, age 1.  (Interestingly, the dit Agros means "Fat.")  Jean-Charles and Judith-Marguerite had no more children in Louisiana.  Their daughters married into the Landry and Provinché families.  Son Simon dit Agros moved to the western prairies, but Jean-Charles's other sons remained on the river.  Daughter Marie died at St.-Gabriel in December 1787, a year after her marriage; she was only 24 years old. 

Marie-Josèphe Trahan, age 45, widow of Michel LeBlanc, came with two children--Marguerite, age 18, and Joseph-Michel, age 9. 

Bonaventure LeBlanc, age 40, came with wife Marie Thériot, age 40, and five children--Joseph dit Adons, age 16, Anne, age 14, Marie-Madeleine, age 10, Esther, age 6, and Isaac, age 4.  They had no more children in Louisiana.  All of their children remained at St.-Gabriel.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Biven, Culere or Dulaire, Dubois (French Creole, not Acadian), Goudeau, Landry, Longuépée, and Rivet families.  Bonavenuture died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in October 1811; the priest who recorded his burial said that Bonaventure was 80 years old when he died, but he probably was closer to 84.  Daughter Esther married four times and died near St. Gabriel in February 1821, in her late 50s; she outlived all four of her husbands.  Marie-Madeleine married three times and died near St. Gabriel in September 1825, in her late 60s. 

Marie-Josèphe LeBlanc, age 25, came with husband François Hébert, fils, age 29, and two sons, ages 4 and 3.  Marie died near Baton Rouge in March 1806; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 76 years old when she died, but she was closer to 64. 

Marguerite LeBlanc, age 23, came with husband François-Sébastien Landry, age 26, and two daughters, ages 3 and infant.

Another Marguerite LeBlanc, age 20, came with husband Pierre-Paul Hébert, age 30, and three children, ages 5, 3, and infant.  Marguerite died at St. Gabriel in February 1805; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was "age 48" when she died, but she was closer to 58. 

Esther LeBlanc, age 22, came with husband Anselme Blanchard of Grand-Pré, age 27, two children, ages 4 and 2, and a 13-year-old orphan.  Anselme served as commander of the Valenzuéla District on upper Bayou Lafourche during the early 1780s. 

Isabelle-Marguerite LeBlanc, age 20, came with husband Jean-Baptiste Babin, age 38, and three small children.  They had many more children in Louisiana.  Isabelle died near St. Gabriel in January 1804; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 60 years old when she died, but she was closer to 57. 

Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 18, came alone. 

Orphan Marie-Marguerite, called Marguerite, LeBlanc, age 16, probably came with sister Marie, age 14.  Marguerite married into the Bergeron and Gaudet families and settled on Bayou Lafourche.  Marie married into the Paquette family and remained on the river. 

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC (c1749-?; Daniel, Jacques, Jean)

Jean-Baptiste, son of probably Joseph LeBlanc and Marguerite Landry, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1749, was exiled to Maryland in 1755, came to Louisiana in 1767, and settled at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville.  He married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexis Comeaux, at nearby Ascension in December 1775.  Spanish officials counted them on the "right bank ascending," or east bank of the river, at St.-Gabriel, just upriver from Ascension, in 1777.  He owned a single slave by then.  His daughters married into the Blanchard and Hébert families.  Except for its blood, his line of the family seems to have died out after the second generation. 

1

Oldest son Jean-Alexis, called Alexis, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in March 1777, married Anne Marine, called Marine, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Richard, at St. Gabriel in November 1805.  Their daughter married into the DeMiller and Denis families.  Alexis remarried to cousin Marie Clothilde, called Clothilde, daughter of Isaac LeBlanc, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1813.  Their infant, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died near St. Gabriel a day after its birth in September 1815, and Alex or Jean Marcellin was born in November 1817.  Their daughter married into the Boissac family.  Alexis died near St. Gabriel in December 1824; the priest who recorded his burial said that Alexis was 50 years old when he died. 

Jean Marcellin, by his father's second wife, died near St. Gabriel in February 1838.  He was only 20 years old and probably did not marry.  His line of the family, except for its blood, probably died with him. 

2

Joseph, born near St.-Gabriel in March 1778, married cousin Marguerite, daughter of Joseph dit Adons LeBlanc, at St.-Gabriel in June 1802.  Their son Joseph, fils was born near St. Gabriel in November 1807 but died at age 12 in February 1820.  Their daughter married into the Landry family.  Joseph, père died in Iberville Parish in December 1813; he was only 35 years old.  His only son did not live long enough to marry, so this family line, except for its blood, probably did not survive. 

3

Jean-Baptiste, fils, born near St.-Gabriel in June 1790, may have died young, unless he was the Jean Baptiste who died near St. Gabriel  in September 1839.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Jean Baptiste died at "age 54 yrs.," but Jean Baptiste, fils would have been only 49. 

4

Youngest son Joseph-Édouard, born near St.-Gabriel in November 1794, may have died young. 

Descendants of Joseph dit Adons LEBLANC (c1751-1824?; Daniel, ?)

Joseph dit Adons, elder son of Bonaventure LeBlanc and Marie Thériot, born probably at Minas in c1751, followed his family into exile in Maryland in 1755.  He was counted with them at Baltimore in July 1763, followed them to Louisiana in 1767, and settled at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville, where he married Marie-Marguerite, called Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Landry, in the late 1760s or early 1770s.  Spanish officials counted them on the "right bank, ascending," or east bank of the river, at St.-Gabriel in 1777.  Their daughters married into the Arceneaux, Babin, Gareuil, and Hébert families and perhaps into the Dupuis and Trahan families as well.  Joseph may have died near St. Gabriel in March 1824, in his early 70s.  Two of his sons married first cousins. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, fils, born near St.-Gabriel in October 1778, probably died young. 

2

Simon, baptized at St.-Gabriel, age unrecorded, in March 1780, married cousin Euphrosine, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon-Joseph Dupuis, at St.-Gabriel in August 1801; Euphrosine's mother, also, was a Landry.  Their son Simon Joseph, called Joseph, was born near St. Gabriel in February 1804, Achille Ursin in October 1805, and Hermogène, a twin, in February 1816.  Their daughters married into the Haydon and Lesassier families.  Simon remarried to first cousin Marie Rose, daughter of his uncle Isaac LeBlanc, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in August 1818; they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Célestin was born near St. Gabriel in May 1819, Jules in April 1824, and Théodore in February 1830.  Their daughter married into the Boissac and Pritchard families.  Simon died near St. Gabriel in January 1854; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Simon died at "age 74 years."

2a

Joseph, by his father's first wife, married cousin Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Grégoire Babin, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in March 1833; Marguerite's mother was a LeBlanc.  Did the family line survive? 

2b

Achille Ursin, by his father's first wife, died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in April 1833.  He was only 27 years old and probably did not marry. 

2c

Hermogène, by his father's first wife, married Mary Azélie, daughter of Anglo American John Allen of Valens County, Mississippi, in a civil ceremony in Valens County, and sanctified the marriage at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in December 1839.  Their son John William was baptized at the St. Gabriel church, age unrecorded, the same day his parents were married there. 

2d

Célestin, by his father's second wife, married cousin Desoline, Théodile, or Zéolide, daughter of Placide LeBlanc, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1840.  Their son Célestin Lucien was born in Iberville Parish in January 1841 but died at age 1 1/2 in July 1842, Aristide Taylor was born in March 1848, Ignace in January 1850 but died at age 1 1/2 in July 1851, Joseph Simon was born in December 1852, and Gabriel Achille in October 1863.  Their daughter married into the Boissac family. 

2e

Jules, by his father's second wife, married Domitille, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Hébert, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1849; Domitille was a sister of Paul Octave Hébert, who served as governor of Louisiana during the early 1850s and as a Confederate general during the War Between the States; another witness to their marriage was Domitille's first cousin, Louis Hébert, who, like her brother Paul Octave, was a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and served as a Confederate general.  Jules's and Domitille's son Jules Octave was born in Iberville Parish in February 1850, Robert Célestin in July 1851 but died at age 1 1/2 in November 1852, Paul Hébert was born in January 1853, and Simon le jeune in January 1856.  Jules died in Iberville Parish in September 1859; he was only 35 years old.

3

Jean-Baptiste-Joseph, called Joseph, born near St.-Gabriel in April 1785, married Marie Céleste, called Céleste, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Hébert, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1810.  Their son Amand Balthazar was born near St. Gabriel in August 1811 but died at age 3 in September 1814, and Joseph Hermogène was born in September 1813.  Their daughter married into the Walsh family.  Joseph may have been the Jean Baptiste LeBlanc who died near St. Gabriel, age 54, in September 1839. 

4

Youngest son Étienne-Édouard, called Édouard, born near St.-Gabriel in July 1794, married first cousin Marie Adélaïde, called Adélaïde, daughter of his uncle Isaac LeBlanc, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in August 1818; they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Joseph Édouard, called Édouard, fils, was born near St. Gabriel in September 1819, a son, name unrecorded, died at age 2 in August 1823, and Jules Édouard was born in February 1824.  Their daughters married into the Hébert and Landry families.  Édouard, père may have died near St. Gabriel in July 1828; the priest who recorded Édouard's burial did not bother to give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give his age at the time of his death; this Édouard would have been only 34 years old; a daughter was born a few days before he died.  

4a

Édouard, fils married Lucille, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Allain, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1841.  Their son Joseph Arnaud was born in Iberville Parish in November 1846 but died at age 1 in November 1847.   Their daughters married into the Babin, Mather, and Weston families.  Except for its blood, did the family line survive? 

4b

Jules Édouard married Delphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Dupuy, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1857.  Their son Édouard le jeune was born in Iberville Parish in January 1858. 

Descendants of Isaac LEBLANC (c1763-1826; Daniel, ?)

Isaac, younger son of Bonaventure LeBlanc and Marie Thériot, born probably at Baltimore, Maryland, in c1763, followed his family to Louisiana in 1767 and settled with them at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville, where he married Félicité, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Melançon, in November 1786.  Their daughters married into the Allain, Babin, Blanchard, Chiasson, Delaune, LeBlanc, Roth, and Tusson families.  Isaac died near St. Gabriel in September 1826; he was 63 years old.  Neither of his sons seems to have married, so this line of the family, except for its blood, probably died with him. 

1

Older son Clotin, born near St.-Gabriel in December 1788, may have died young. 

2

Younger son Maximilien, called Maxille, born near St.-Gabriel in February 1791, died in Iberville Parish, "a bachelor," in August 1848.  He was 57 years old.  One wonders why he did not marry. 

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste dit Agros LEBLANC (c1752-; Daniel, Antoine, Joseph dit Le Maigre)

Jean-Baptiste dit Agros, eldest son of Jean-Charles LeBlanc and Judith-Marguerite Landry, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1752, followed his family into exile in Maryland in 1755.  He was counted with them at Baltimore in July 1763, followed them to Louisiana in 1767, and settled at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville, where he married Madeleine-Marthe, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Foret, in April 1782.  Their daughters married into the Hébert and Landry families and perhaps into the Dupuis family as well.  Only one of his many sons married but may not have fathered a son of his own, so this family line, except for its blood, may not have survived 

1

Oldest son Gabriel, born near St.-Gabriel in April 1786, died there in February 1808.  He was only 21 years old and did not marry. 

2

Hippolyte, born near St.-Gabriel in December 1792, also may have died young. 

3

Placide, born probably near St. Gabriel in c1789, married Letitia, daughter of Anglo American Jean Dodd, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1817.  Their daughters married into the Alexandrie, Landry, and LeBlanc families.  Placide may have died near St. Gabriel in February 1824; if so, he would have been only 35 years old.  Except for its blood, his line of the family probably died with him. 

4

Laurent, born near St.-Gabriel in December 1794, may have died there in November 1820.  The priest who recorded this burial, and who did not bother to give Laurent's parents' names or mention a wife, said that Laurent was "age 30 yrs." when he died.  If this was Laurent, son of Jean Baptiste dit Agros, he would have been only 25 years old when he died. 

5

Youngest son Édouard, born in c1807, died near St. Gabriel at age 5 in July 1812. 

Descendants of Joseph dit Agros LEBLANC (c1755-1811; Daniel, Antoine, Joseph dit Le Maigre)

Joseph dit Agros, second son of Jean-Charles LeBlanc and Judith-Marguerite Landry, born at Grand-Pré in c1755, followed his family into exile in Maryland in 1755.  He was counted with them at Baltimore in July 1763, followed them to Louisiana in 1767, and settled at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville.  He married Anne-Julie or Julie-Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Chrysostôme Trahan, at nearby Ascension in October 1787.  Anne-Julie had come to Louisiana from France in 1785 aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships.  They settled at Manchac, between St.-Gabriel and Baton Rouge.  One of their daughters was baptized at New Orleans in November 1790, so they may have lived in the city before returning to Manchac.  In the early 1800s, they crossed the river and settled in what became West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their daughters married into the Guidry, Landry, Reboul, and Serrette families.  Joseph dit Agros died probably in West Baton Rouge Parish in March 1811; he was 55 years old.  Only his oldest son seems to have created a family of his own. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, fils, born at Manchac in August 1788, married cousin Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Marie Trahan of Baton Rouge, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in April 1817.  Their son Joseph Colombe was born near Baton Rouge in December 1833.

3

Another Jean-Baptiste, born at Manchac in October 1798, also may have died young. 

4

Youngest son Pierre, born at Manchac in January 1803, also may have died young. 

Descendants of Joseph-Michel LEBLANC (1758-1833; Daniel, Jacques, Jean)

Joseph-Michel, also called Michel-Joseph, son of Michel dit Michaud LeBlanc and Marie-Josèphe Trahan, born at Baltimore, Maryland, in December 1758, followed his widowed mother to Louisiana in 1767 and settled at St.-Gabriel d'Iberville, where Spanish officials counted them on the "right bank, ascending," or east side of the river, in 1777.  Joseph-Michel married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Augustin Landry, at St.-Gabriel in June 1781.  Their daughters married into the Babin and LeBlanc families and perhaps into the Dupuis family as well.  (Their daughter Marie Rosalie, wife of her cousin Auguste LeBlanc, died at Barataria, south of New Orleans in c1814 or 1815, in her late 20s, and was reinterred at St. Gabriel in January 1816; one wonders what she was doing at Barataria, which in the 1810s was a noted smugglers' lair.)  Joseph Michel's baptismal record was recertified by the St. Gabriel priest in January 1819, when he was 60.  He died near St. Gabriel in October 1833; the priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph was 81 years old when he died, but he was "only" 74.  Only his younger sons seem to have created families of their own.  Two of them married sisters. 

1

Oldest son Augustin or Auguste, born near St.-Gabriel in May 1783, died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in February 1834.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Auguste was 52 years old when he died, but he was only 50.  Did he marry? 

2

Joseph, fils, born near St.-Gabriel in February 1785, may have died young, unless he was the Jean Baptiste, "single, brother of Élie and Isaie LeBlanc," who died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in December 1843.  The priest who recorded the burial said that Jean Baptiste died at "age 59 years," hence the possibility that he was the Joseph, son of Joseph LeBlanc and Marguerite Landry, born at St.-Gabriel in February 1785.  One wonders why Jean Baptiste never married. 

3

François-Xavier, born near St.-Gabriel in April 1789, may have died young. 

4

Élie, born near St.-Gabriel in April 1793, married Marie Victoire or Victorine, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Chiasson, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1814.  Their son Élie, fils, also called Leche, was born probably in Iberville Parish in c1814, and Lucien in January 1818.  Their daughter married into the Landry family.  Élie, père remarried to Iréné, daughter of Spanish Creole Jacques Hernandez, at the St. Gabriel church in June 1825, on the same day and at the same place his younger brother Isaac married Iréné's sister Céleste.  Élie and Iréné's son Hermogène was born in Iberville Parish in May 1829, Adolphe in April 1833, Jean Baptiste in August 1838, and Auguste in January 1841.  Their daughter married into the Blanchard family.  Élie, père died in Iberville Parish in February 1849; the St. Gabriel priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Élie, Sr., as he called him, died at "age 57 years," but he was only 55.  His sons settled near Plaquemine on the west side of the river. 

4a

Élie, fils, by his father's first wife, married Marie Joséphine, Séraphine, or Serasine, daughter of Joseph Vincent Desmoulet or Demoulette, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1838.  They settled near Plaquemine on the west bank of the river.  Their daughters married into the Brown, Marrionneaux, and Martinez families.  Élie, fils died at Plaquemine in November 1853; he was only 39 years old.  Was he a victim of the yellow fever epidemic that struck South Louisiana during the summer and fall of 1853?  Did he father any sons? 

4b

Lucien, by his father's first wife, married cousin Marguerite Aloisia, Aloysia, Alouisia, or Alouisine, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Élie Hébert, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1850; Aloysia's mother was a LeBlanc.  The settled near Plaquemine on the west side of the river.  Their son Amédée was born in December 1850, Théodulus in November 1854, Aristides in September 1856, Amilcar in June 1858, Élie le jeune in December 1861, and Antoine in June 1865.

5

Narcisse, born near St.-Gabriel in September 1795, married cousin Marcellite, daughter of fellow Acadian Olivier Brasset, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1817; Marcellite's mother, also, was a Landry.  Their infant, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died near St. Gabriel nine days after its birth in July 1819.  Their daughter married into the Rils family.  Narcisse died near St. Gabriel in September 1819; he was only 24 years old.  His line of the family, except for its blood, probably died with him.

Youngest son Aimé-Isaac-Michel, called Isaac and Isaie, born near St.-Gabriel in December 1800, married Céleste, another daughter of Jacques Hernandez, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1825, on the same day and at the same place his older brother Élie married Céleste's sister Iréné.  Isaac and Céleste's son Isaac, fils had been born near St. Gabriel in May 1825 but died at age 8 in April 1833, Joseph Y., perhaps Joseph Isaac, was born in February 1828, and Zenon in April 1832 but died at age 4 in February 1836.  Their daughter married into the Danos family.  Isaac remarried to Marie Domitille, daughter of Spanish Creole Joseph Hernandez, at the St. Gabriel church in April 1836.  They lived near the boundary between Iberville and Ascension parishes.  Their son Ysari, also called Isaie, fils, was born in February 1837 but died at age 7 1/2 in October 1844, and Charles died 8 days after his birth in August 1843. 

Joseph Y., by his father's first wife, married Marie Elmire, called Elmire, daughter of French Creole Louis Voisin, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1850.  They settled on the west bank of the river near Plaquemine.  Their son Célestis Bastilla was born in June 1854, Joseph Isaie in September 1860, Louis Beauregard in February 1864, and Émile in September 1866.

In early 1768, a LeBlanc wife came to Louisiana from Maryland with the large party from Port Tobacco led by brothers Alexis and Honoré Breau of Pigiguit.  Spanish governor Ulloa forced them to settle at Fort San Luìs de Natchez, far upriver and across from present-day Natchez, Mississippi, but they did not remain there:

Marguerite LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 62, widow of Pierre Cloistre dit Clouâtre, came with four grown, unmarried children, ages 27 to 18.  After the Spanish released them from Fort San Luìs de Natchez, Marguerite moved down to St.-Gabriel, where she died in April 1782, in her late 70s. 

~

The arrival dates of several LeBlancs who came to Louisiana in the 1760s and settled on the river are difficult to determine:

Marie and Rose LeBlanc came to Louisiana with brother Pierre.  They may have settled with him at St.-Gabriel.  One wonders if Marie and Rose were actually one person, Marie-Rose, who married Charles Landry

Marie-Rose LeBlanc married François, son of fellow Acadian Charles Landry, at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in May 1768.  One wonders if Marie-Rose was the sister of the Pierre LeBlanc who married Marguerite Breaux

Jean-Charles LEBLANC (?-; Daniel, ?)

Jean-Charles, son of Jean LeBlanc and Marie Thériot, married Anne-Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Landry, at St.-Jacques in August 1770.  She had come to Louisiana from Maryland in 1768 with six of her siblings and followed them and the rest of the Breau party to Fort San Luìs de Natchez, across the river from present-day Natchez, Mississippi.  One wonders if Jean-Charles also had come to Louisiana from Maryland with the Breau party and had gone with them to Natchez.  One also wonders if Jean-Charles and Anne-Madeleine had any children. 

Descendants of Pierre LEBLANC (1753-1790; Daniel, Jacques, Jean)

Pierre, son of Joseph LeBlanc and Marguerite Landry, born probably at Minas in October 1753, may have been exiled to Maryland as an infant in 1755 and may have come to Louisiana with sisters Marie and Rose in 1766 or 1767.  Spanish officials counted him on the "left bank ascending" at St.-Gabriel in 1777; he was still a bachelor and owned a Negro boy.  Pierre married Marguerite-Pélagie, daughter of fellow Acadian Janvier Breau, at Ascension in October 1778.  They settled near St.-Gabriel.  Their daughter married into the Dupuis family.  Pierre may have died near St.-Gabriel in November1790; if so, he would have been only 37 years old.  Most of his half dozen sons married fellow Acadians and remained in the St. Gabriel area.  One of his sons married three times, another twice.  A grandson settled in West Baton Rouge Parish. 

1

Oldest son François-Xavier, born near St.-Gabriel in October 1779, probably died young. 

2

Narcisse, born at Ascension in March 1783, married cousin Marie Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Babin, at St. Gabriel in February 1806; Marie Anne's mother was a LeBlanc.  Their daughters married into the Braud and Richard families.  Narcisse died near St. Gabriel in September 1853; the priest who recorded this burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a a wife, said that Narcisse died at "age 71 years," but he was "only" 70.  Narcisse may have fathered no sons, so this line of the family, except for its blood, may have died with him.

3

Joseph-Auguste, called Auguste, born near St.-Gabriel in November 1784, married cousin Marie Rosalie, called Rosalie, daughter of Joseph Michel LeBlanc, at St. Gabriel in February 1806; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Rosalie died at Barataria in c1814 or 1815, in her late 20s, and was reinterred at St. Gabriel in January 1816.  Auguste remarried to Constance, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Bujole, at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, in January 1817, and remarried again--his third marriage--to Clarisse, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Babin and widow of Louis Seguinot, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in March 1820.  Their child, name and age unrecorded, perhaps a son, died near Baton Rouge in October 1823.  Auguste died near St. Gabriel in July 1829; he was only 44 years old.  His family line may have died with him. 

4

Maximilien, a twin, born near St.-Gabriel in March 1787, married Marie Hélène, called Hélène, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Allain, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1808.  Their son Joachim was born in Iberville Parish in January 1809, Pierre Eperin or Zéphirin, called Zéphirin, in June 1816, Pierre Hermogène, called Hermogène, in January 1818, and Maximilien, fils in January 1824.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin and Hébert families.  Maximilien died near St. Gabriel in October 1843; he was 56 years old. 

4a

Joachim married Ludivine, called Divine, daughter of fellow Acadian Abraham Hébert, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in September 1837.  Their son Joachim, fils was born in Iberville Parish in February 1845, Thomas Richard Stuart in July 1850, and Louis in May 1858. 

 4b

Zéphirin married Gertrude, daughter of French Creole Louis Voisin, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1840.  They settled near Plaquemine on the west side of the river.  Their son Louis Lovinsky was born in May 1843, Joseph Oneda in August 1851 but died in June 1852, Ignace was born in August 1855, and Joseph Zéphirin Laurent in May 1859.  Their daughter married into the Doiron family.  Zéphirin died in Iberville Parish in April 1859; he was only 42 years old. 

4c

Hermogène married Marie Mélanie, called Mélanie, daughter of fellow Acadian Urbin Achée and widow of Joseph Housiaux, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1865; Hermogène was 47 years old at the time of the wedding, so one wonders if this was his first marriage.  Their son Alexandre Armant, a twin, was born in Iberville Parish in May 1867 but may have died in June. 

5

Pierre-Charles, Maximilien's twin, died near St.-Gabriel at age 3 months in July 1787. 

6

Youngest son Pierre-Paul, called Paul, born near St.-Gabriel in March 1789, married cousin Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Mathurin Landry, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1810; Marguerite's mother, also, was a Braud; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Pierre Jude was born near St. Gabriel in February 1811, Pierre Eugène, called Eugène, near Baton Rouge in February 1815, Ursin near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in June 1820, and an infant, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died near St. Gabriel at age 6 months in July 1823.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Berret, and Hébert families.  Pierre Paul may have remarried to Letitia, also called Melcide, daughter perhaps of Anglo American Jean Dodd and widow perhaps of Placide LeBlanc, at St. Gabriel in the late 1820s.  Their daughters married into the LeBlanc (French Canadian, not Acadian) and Lejeune families. 

Pierre Eugène, by his father's first wife, married Marie Adeline, called Adeline and Deline, daughter of fellow Acadian François Theriot, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1844.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Magloire Eugène was born in October 1846, and François Joseph in December 1853.

~

The largest contingent of LeBlancs who emigrated to Louisiana--at least 73 of them, including 20 families--arrived aboard every one of the Seven Ships from France in 1785.  These were LeBlancs from Minas whom the British had exiled to Virginia in the fall of 1755, had deported to England the following year, and repatriated to France in 1763, many of them settling on Belle-Île-en-Mer off the southern coast of Brittany; and also LeBlancs from Pigiguit, Cobeguit, and Île St.-Jean whom the British had deported to France in 1758-59.  After enduring the indignities of life in the mother country for a quarter of a century, they took up the Spanish government's offer to start a new life in Louisiana.  Most of them chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche, but some of them settled on the river near their many cousins already there: 

Simon LeBlanc, age 62, crossed on Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in late July.  With him were second wife Marie Trahan, age 51, and three children--Joseph, age 20, Marie-Anne, age 15, and Jacques-Pierre-Marie, age 14.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to the Manchac area, south of Baton Rouge.  From Manchac, they moved to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Simon died in February 1802, age 77.  Daughter Marie-Anne married into the Landry and LeBlanc families and settled on Bayou Lafourche; she died in Ascension Parish in September 1831, in her early 60s.  Most of Simon's sons remained at Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.  Son Jacques moved to Bayou Teche in the early 1800s. 

Jean LeBlanc, age 36, Simon's son by his first wife, crossed with wife Thérèse Hébert, age 35, and daughter Marie-Rose, age 1 1/2.  They remained on the river. 

Joseph LeBlanc, age 54, crossed on Le Bon Papa with second wife Anne Hébert, age 49, and four children--Marguerite-Blanche-Ian, age 19, Marie-Françoise, age 18, Joseph-Marie, age 17, and Simon-Louis-Marie, age 14.  Theirs was the first family to step off the first of the Seven Ships.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux and LeBlanc families and remained on the river.  Their sons also remained on the river.  Daughter Marguerite died probably at Manchac in August 1798; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was "age 30 years" when she died, but she was 32.  Daughter Marie Françoise also died at Manchac, in September 1814, a widow; she was only 48 years old. 

Marguerite LeBlanc, age 48, crossed on Le Bon Papa with second husband André Templé, age 57, and eight children, ages 25 to 7.  Hers was the second family to step off the ship.  They moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Marguerite died in Assumption Parish in May 1815, a widow, in her late 70s. 

Pierre LeBlanc, age 42, crossed on Le Bon Papa with wife Anne-Josèphe Lebert, age 41, and four sons--Joseph-Olivier, age 17, Pierre-Paul, age 15, Jean-Cléandre, age 13, and Victor-Charles, age 10.  They remained at Manchac, where Pierre remarried.  Pierre died at Manchac in August 1815, a widower, in his early 70s.

Charles-Jean LeBlanc, age 23, crossed on Le Bon Papa with wife Brigitte-Josèphe Hébert, age 19, and no children.  In c1790, they moved from Manchac to upper Bayou Lafourche, where his family had settled, lived for a time in New Orleans during the late 1790s, and had many children, at least five of whom died in a yellow fever epidemic in the city in the late summer and early fall of 1799.

.

Claude LeBlanc, age 62, crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  With him was third wife Dorothée Richard, age 50, and Claire Landry, her 80-year-old mother-in-law from her first marriage.  They did not follow the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche but settled instead on the river at Ascension.  In June 1788, Claude and cousin Jérôme LeBlanc clashed with Ascension Commandant Louis Judice over levee maintenance, a dispute that they won.  Claude died at Ascension in August 1800; he was 77 years old.  The stories he could have told! 

Élisabeth dite Maillet LeBlanc, age 42, crossed on La Bergère with husband Honoré Breau, age 50, and six children, ages 16 to infant.  They, too, were among the few passengers from their ship who did not go to upper Bayou Lafourche.  They went, instead, to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.  Élisabeth died at Manchac in January 1808; the priest who recorded her burial said that she was 60 years old when she died, but she was closer to 65. 

.

Marie LeBlanc, age 55, crossed on Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  With her were husband Jean Guédry dit Gravois, age 57, two sons, ages 27 and 17, and a 19-year-old cousin.  They went to St.-Jacques before moving on to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, LeBlanc, age 54, widow of Pierre-Isidore Trahan, crossed on Le Beaumont with five children, ages 21 to 9.  They went to Manchac, but not all of them remained there.  Madeleine and at least two of her children settled on the western prairies, where Madeleine died in November 1804, in her early 70s.   

Marie LeBlanc, age 45, crossed on Le Beaumont with third husband Charles Henry, age 53, and four children from two of her marriages, ages 23 to 17.  Marie was pregnant on the voyage and gave birth to a son at Baton Rouge in October. 

Paul LeBlanc, age 41, crossed on Le Beaumont with wife Anne Boudrot, age 38, two daughters--Adélaïde-Marguerite, age 3, and infant Rose or Rosalie--and 23-year-old niece Rose Trahan.  They went to Baton Rouge before moving on to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Élisabeth or Isabelle LeBlanc of Pigiguit, age 32, crossed on Le Beaumont with husband Joseph Caillouet, age 31, a Canadian she married in France, and an infant son.  They went to St.-Jacques.  Isabelle died near Convent, St. James Parish, in March 1816, in her early 60s. 

.

Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc of Rivière-aux-Canards, age 44, crossed on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in November.  With him were wife Élisabeth, or Isabelle, Aucoin, age 50, and 19-year-old niece Marie-Marguerite Semer.  They went to San Bernardo, an Isleños settlement on the river below New Orleans, before moving on to the Opelousas District, where Élisabeth remarried in 1797. 

.

Marguerite LeBlanc of Rivière-aux-Canards, age 40, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in early December.  With her was husband Charles Bourg of Cobeguit, age 51.  They brought no children with them to the colony.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, but moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche by the 1790s. 

.

LeBlancs from France who settled on the Acadian Coast created only two new family lines that survived there: 

Descendants of Pierre LEBLANC (c1743-?; Daniel, Antoine, Pierre dit Pinou)

Pierre, elder son of Victor LeBlanc and Marie Aucoin, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1743, followed his family to one of the Maritime islands and was deported to France in 1758 with the family of his stepfather, Grégoire Maillet.  Pierre married Anne-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Lebert, at Plouër, France, near St.-Malo, in February 1767; she was the sister of his younger brother Olivier's future wife.  They sailed to France aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Manchac.  Pierre remarried to Geneviève, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Richard and widow of Simon dit Pierre Pitre and Victor Boudreaux, probably at Manchac in September 1787.  Their daughter married into the Guidry family and settled near Baton Rouge.  Every one of Pierre's four sons, all from his first wife and all born in France, may have died young, so only the blood of this family line seems to have survived in the Bayou State. 

1

Oldest son Joseph-Olivier, by his father's first wife, born at Plouër, France, in May 1768, may have died young. 

2

Pierre-Paul, by his father's first wife, born at Plouër, France, in February 1770, may have died young. 

3

Jean-Cléandre, by his father's first wife, born at Plouër, France, in September 1771, may have died young. 

4

Youngest son Victor-Charles, by his father's first wife, born at Nantes, France, in March 1776, also may have died young. 

Descendants of Jean LEBLANC (1746-?; Daniel, René, Jacques)

Jean, son of Simon LeBlanc and his first wife Marguerite Bourg, born at Grand-Pré in October 1746, followed his family to one of the Maritime islands and was deported to France in 1758.  He married Thérèse, also called Bertille or Tarsille, daughter of fellow Acadian François Hébert of Cobeguit, at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, France, near Nantes, in April 1782.  They and their infant daughter sailed to Louisiana with his father's family aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Manchac.  Their daughter married into the Longuépée family.  Jean and Bertille may have had no sons.

Descendants of Joseph LEBLANC (1764-?; Daniel, René, Jacques)

Joseph, elder son of Simon LeBlanc and his second wife Marie Trahan, born at Morlaix, France, in November 1764, became a sailor in the mother country.  He followed his family to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and settled with them at Manchac, where he married cousin Marguerite-Blanche-Ian, daughter of Joseph LeBlanc, in February 1787.  Marguerite also had come to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa and probably had known Joseph since their childhood together on Belle-Île-en-Mer.  Their daughters married into the Danos family and perhaps into the Rivet family as well.  Joseph remarried to Marie- or Laurentine-Urienne, called Corentine, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Longuépée, at Manchac in July 1799.  Corentine had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships.  Their daughters married into the Berret, Hernandez, Melançon, and Rivet families. 

Jérôme, by his first wife, born at Manchac in April 1790, married Clémence, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Charles Comeaux, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1814.  They settled near Bayou Goula, Iberville Parish, on the west side of the river.  Their son Derosin or Drauzin was born in November 1817, Timoléon, called Moléon, in November 1818, Jean Trasimond in September 1820, Jean Valsin, called Valsin, in August 1821, and Jean Rosémond in May 1823.  Their daughter married into the Daigre family.  Jérôme died near Bayou Goula in September 1847; he was 57 years old. 

Drauzin died in Iberville Parish in February 1849.  He was only 31 years old and does not seem to have married. 

Valsin married Marie Euphrosine, Euphrosie, or Euphrasie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Henry and widow of Edmond Trahan, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in November 1849.  They lived briefly on upper Bayou Lafourche before returning to Iberville Parish.  Their son Joseph Edgard was born near Plaquemine on the west bank of the river in July 1854, and Armant in February 1858.  Valsin remarried to Athanaise, daughter of French Creole Rosémond Lambremont and widow of Adolphe Braud, at the St. Gabriel church in February 1865; Athanaise's mother was a Braud

Jean Rosémond died in Iberville Parish in July 1850.  He was only 27 years old and, like older brother Drauzin, does not seem to have married. 

Timoléon married Élisabeth, called Élise, daughter of fellow Acadian Firmin Davat Landry, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1851.  Their son Joseph Alvar was born in Iberville Parish in March 1853, and Roman in February 1858 but died at age 1 in April 1859 and was buried in St. Raphaël Cemetery on the west side of the river near Bayou Goula. 

Jean Trasimond died in Iberville Parish in December 1857.  He was only 37 years old and probably did not marry. 

Descendants of Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC (c1768-1820; Daniel, Antoine, Jacques dit Petit Jacques)

Jean-Baptiste, son of Jean-Jacques LeBlanc and his second wife Nathalie Pitre, born at St.-Servan, France, near St. Malo, in March 1768, followed his parents to Poitou in the early 1770s, witnessed his father's leadership of the Acadians who questioned the viability of the Poitou venture, retreated with his family to Nantes after the venture failed, and worked as a sailor.  Still a teenager, he crossed to Louisiana with his widowed mother and a sister aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he was counted in 1788 working as an engagé with the family of French Creole Jean Licaire.  Unlike his younger sister, Jean-Baptiste did not remain on the upper bayou.  He married Marie-Henriette, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Boudreaux, at St.-Jacques on the river in January 1795.  Jean Baptiste died in St. James Parish in April 1820; he was only 51 years old.  Only one of his four sons married and created a family of his own; he remained on the old Acadian Coast. 

1

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste-Lucien, born at St.-Jacques in July 1802, died in St. James Parish, age 12, in September 1814. 

2

Joseph Casimir, called Casimir, born in St. James Parish in July 1807, may have married Orellia, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Sonnier, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1845.  Casimir remarried to cousin Cidalise, daughter of fellow Acadian Olivier Boudreaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in June 1852; Casimir was just shy of age 45 at the time of the wedding.  They remained in Lafayette Parish. 

3

Simon Eugène, called Eugène, born in St. James Parish in December 1810, died at "age about 16 yrs." in March 1826. 

4

Youngest son Jean Jacques le jeune, born in St. James Parish in December 1812, married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Éloi Landry, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in February 1835.  They lived near the boundary between St. James and Ascension parishes.  Their son Joseph Éloi or Éloi Joseph was born in December 1835, Jean Elphége, called Elphége, in March 1839, Joseph Oscar in August 1843 but died at age 2 1/2 in July 1846, Joseph Prosper was born in July 1845, a "newly born child," name unrecorded, perhaps a son, after being "privately baptised," died in July 1849, Joseph Clément was born in May 1851 but died the following October, and Pierre Jean Baptiste was born in June 1853 but died the following November.  Their daughter married a Melançon cousin.  Jean Jacques le jeune remarried to Florestine, Florestille, or Forestine, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Melançon and widow of Drosin Bertaud, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in January 1857; Jean Jacques le jeune was 44 years old at the time of the wedding.  One of his sons by his first marriage may have married one of his stepdaughters. 

4a

Joseph Éloi, by his father's first wife, married Madeleine Adèle, called Adèle, daughter of Laurent Dongieux, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in February 1857.  Their son Joseph Éloi, fils was baptized at the St. James church, age unrecorded, in September 1859.  They were living near Convent a year later.

4b

Jean Elphége, called John Elphége by the recording priest, from his father's first wife, married M. Amelia, called Amelia, daughter of perhaps French Creole Drosin Bertaud of St. James Parish, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in December 1863; if this was her father, she would have been Jean Elphége's stepsister and her mother would have been a Melançon.  Elphége and Amelia settled in St. James parishes, first on the west bank and then on the east bank of the river.  Their son Joseph Élie was born in September 1865, Joseph Vincent in January 1867, and Louis Ulrie in April 1868. 

4c

Joseph Prosper "of St. James Parish," from his father's first wife, married Maria Anna Buquoi at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, December 1869. 

Joseph-Marie LEBLANC (1768-; Daniel, Jacques, René)

Joseph-Marie, elder son of Joseph LeBlanc and his second wife Anne Hébert, born at Kleban, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in April 1768, followed his family to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and settled with them at Manchac.  One wonders what became of him. 

Simon-Louis-Marie LEBLANC (1771-1798; Daniel, Jacques, René)

Simon, younger son of Joseph LeBlanc and his second wife Anne Hébert, born at Sauzon, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in April 1771, followed his family to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and settled with them at Manchac.  Simon died at Manchac in January 1798; the priest who recorded his burial said that Simon was 25 years old when he died, but he was 26.  One wonders if he married.   

~

A LeBlanc widow was among the last Acadians to come to Louisiana:

Marine LeBlanc of Grand-Pré, age 52, widow of Joseph Babin, also of Grand-Pré, came to Louisiana aboard the schooner Brigite, owned and piloted by fellow Acadian Joseph Gravois, in Dec 1788.  With her were five children, ages 25 to 15.  They had left Île St.-Pierre, off the southern coast of Newfoundland, in mid-October and reached New Orleans two months later.  Marine died at Ascension in September 1789, age 53. 

~

In a reversal of the usual Acadian settlement pattern, LeBlancs from upper Bayou Lafourche, including an exile from France, "returned" to the river beginning in the late colonial period and created new family lines in what became Iberville, East and West Baton Rouge, and Ascension parishes.  The line near Baton Rouge may not have survived:  

Descendants of Olivier LEBLANC (c1746-1808; Daniel, Antoine, Pierre dit Pinou)

Olivier, younger son of Victor LeBlanc and Marie Aucoin, born at Grand-Pré in c1746, followed his family to one of the Maritime islands and was deported to France in 1758-59 with the family of his stepfather, Grégoire Maillet.  Olivier married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Lebert, at Nantes, France, in June 1781; she was the sister of his older brother Pierre's wife.  They sailed to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, in 1785, and followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche.  They had more children in Louisiana, including sons.  Their daughter married into the Bourg family.  Olivier remarried to Rose, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Richard, at Lafourche in November 1790.  Unlike his older brother, who settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, Olivier took his family upriver to the Manchac area, where he died in January 1808; the priest who recorded his burial said that Olivier was 72 years old when he died, but he was closer to 62.  His burial record also noted that at the time of his death he was "unmarried."  One of his sons settled on the western prairies. 

1

Oldest son Pierre-Olivier, by his father's first wife, baptized at Chantenay, France, age unrecorded, in April 1784, probably died young. 

2

Charles-Marie, by his father's first wife, born at Lafourche in October 1785, married Modeste Aimée or Emerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Jacques Blanchard, at Baton Rouge in February 1806.  Their son Charles, fils was born at Manchac in November 1808.  Their daughter married into the Dupuis family.  Charles Marie remarried to Élisabeth, daughter of fellow Acadian Bénoni Hébert, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in March 1813.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Magloire Charles was born in July 1817, and Victorin in January 1822.  Their daughters married into the Anger and Babin families.  Charles Marie remarried again--his third marriage--to Anne Marine, called Marine, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Hébert and widow of Jean Louis Landry, at the Baton Rouge church in May 1837; he was in his early 50s at the time of the wedding.  Charles Marie died probably in West Baton Rouge Parish in August 1854; the Baton Rouge priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Charles "of West Baton Rouge Parish" died at "age 70 years;" he was 69.  His oldest son settled on the western prairies but may have returned to the Baton Rouge area. 

2a

Charles, fils, by his father's first wife, married Élisabeth Tarsile or Tarsile Élisabeth, daughter of French Creole Jean Marie Tullier of West Baton Rouge Parish, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in May 1833; Élisabeth's mother was a Dupuis.  They remained on Bayou Teche.  A daughter was baptized at Baton Rouge in August 1860, so they may have returned to the area by then. 

2b

Magloire Charles, by his father's second wife, likely married fellow Acadian Pauline or Apolline Richard in West Baton Rouge Parish in the late 1830s.  Their son Charles Wilfred was born near Brusly in February 1848, Paul Joseph in July 1855, and Augustin in July 1857.  Their daughters married into the Broussard family. 

3

Youngest son Magloire-Henri, by his father's first wife, born probably at Manchac in October 1787, married Marie Modeste, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Blanchard, at Baton Rouge in August 1810.  They settled in what became West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Sylvère or Sylvain, perhaps also called Silbert, was born in July 1811.  Their daughter married into the Allain (French Creole, not Acadian) family.  Magloire "of West Baton Rouge Parish" died there in November 1860; he was 73 years old. 

Sylvère may have married fellow Acadian Joséphine Broussard and settled near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish, on the west bank of the river, by the early 1840s.   Their son Roman Émile was born in April 1849, and Alcée Oliviée in March 1853.  Their daughter married into the Hébert family. 

Descendants of André-Amable LEBLANC (1794-; Daniel, André, Claude-André, Charles)

Amable-André or André-Amable, second son of Charles-Jean LeBlanc and Brigitte-Josèphe Hébert, born at Assumption on upper Bayou Lafourche in February 1794, married Marguerite Joséphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Braud, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in November 1818, and remarried to Adélaïde, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Allain and widow of Joseph Hébert, at the St. Gabriel church in June 1828.  Their daughters married into the Danos and Mire families. 

1

Oldest son Charles, by his father's first wife, born near St. Gabriel in August 1819, married Euphrasie, daughter of German Creole Georges Troxler, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1844.  Their son Charles, fils was born near St. Gabriel in January 1846 but died at age 6 1/2 in July 1852, and André Bernard or Bertrand was born in June 1847 but died at age 4 in June 1851.  Their daughter married into the Dupuy family.  Charles died in Iberville Parish in August 1848; he was only 29 years old.  His line of the family, except for its blood, probably did not survive. 

2

Jean, by his father's first wife, died near St. Gabriel at age 2 in November 1824. 

3

Youngest son André Théodule, by his father's first wife, born near St. Gabriel in October 1826, ...

Descendants of Joseph LEBLANC le jeune (1820-1849?; Daniel, Antoine, René, Étienne, Simon, Joseph)

Joseph le jeune, son of Joseph Narcisse LeBlanc and his first wife Joséphine Senette, born in Assumption Parish in July 1820, married Sarah Élizabeth or Élizabeth Sarah, daughter of Anthony Monget, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in September 1843; Sarah's mother was a Longuépée.  They remained in the Baton Rouge area.  Was Joseph le jeune the Joseph LeBlanc who died near Baton Rouge in May 1849?  The Baton Rouge priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age 30 years"; Joseph le jeune would have been two months shy of 29.  Joseph, fils, perhaps Joseph's son (the recording priest called the boy son of Widow Joseph LeBlanc), died near Baton Rouge at age 20 months in November 1849. 

Abner Joseph, perhaps called Joseph, born near Baton Rouge in June 1848, may have died near Baton Rouge in November 1849.  The Baton Rouge priest who recorded the boy's burial called him the son of "Widow Joseph LeBlanc" and said he died at "age 20 months"; Abner Joseph would have been 17 or 18 months old at the time. 

Descendants of Joseph Prudent LEBLANC (1824-; Daniel, René, Jacques, Jacques, fils, Paul, Marcel)

Joseph Prudent, eldest son of Augustin dit Justin LeBlanc and Marie Azélie Duhon, born in Assumption Parish in April 1824, married Carmelite, daughter of Spanish Creole Mathias Rodriguez, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in May 1843.

Other LEBLANCs on the River

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many LeBlancs on the river with known Acadian lines of the family there.  The priests at Convent, St. Gabriel, and especially Donaldsonville were often negligent in their recordkeeping.  One suspects that many of the marriages on this list were civil unions unsanctified by the church.  One also suspects that some of the LeBlancs living on the river during the immediate post-war period were Afro Creoles once owned by "white" members of the family:

Joseph LeBlanc married Marguerite Blanchard and settled near St.-Gabriel by the early 1780s. 

Michel LeBlanc died at Ascension in August 1786.  The priest who recorded his burial did not bother to give Michel's parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death. 

Alexandre LeBlanc married Anne Trahan.  Their son Joseph was baptized at Ascension, age unrecorded, in May 1787. 

Joseph LeBlanc married Marguerite Favre and settled at Ascension by the early 1790s. 

Rose LeBlanc died near St.-Gabriel in December 1794.  The priest who recorded her burial did not give her parents' names, mention a husband, or even give her age at the time of her death.  One wonders if she was an immigrant or a native of Louisiana. 

Augustin LeBlanc, described as "native of Cabanocé," died near St.-Jean-Baptiste des Allemands on the Upper German Coast in January 1801.  The priest who recorded his burial did not give Augustin's parents' names, mention a wife, or even give his age at the time of his death. 

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

Isaac LeBlanc married Marie Theriot.  Their daughter Geneviève married into the Thibodeaux family at St.-Jacques in August 1802, and into the Price family in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1829. 

Joseph dit Lave LeBlanc died at Ascension in November 1804.  The priest who recorded the burial did not give Joseph's parents' names, mention a wife, or even record Joseph's age at the time of his death. 

Omer or Homer, son of Joseph LeBlanc, died at Ascension in July 1805.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Omer was only nine months old when he died.  Since the priest did not list the boy's mother's name, one can only guess which of the many Joseph LeBlancs at Ascension was his father. 

Colin LeBlanc married Marie Constance Braud.  Their son Nicolas was born at St. James in November 1805. 

Jean LeBlanc, "former school teacher," died near St. Gabriel in February 1806.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give his parents' names or mention a wife, said that Jean was 50 years old when he died.  Considering his profession, one wonders if Jean was Acadian. 

Richard LeBlanc died in Ascension Parish in June 1808.  The Donaldson priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Richard was 28 years old when he died. 

André LeBlanc died near Convent, St. James Parish, in March 1814.  The priest who recorded his burial called André "an Acadian" but did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife.  The priest also said that André died at "age 45." 

Dorville LeBlanc died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in February 1815.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Dorville was 16 years old when he died but did not give his parents' names. 

Moïse LeBlanc died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in May 1815.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give his parents' names or mention a wife, said that Moïse was 23 years old when he died. 

Valeno LeBlanc was born in Ascension Parish in May 1816.  The Donaldson priest who recorded the boy's baptism called his parents Canto LeBlanc and Margarita Landry.  Anyone have a clue who they were? 

Jean Baptiste LeBlanc died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in June 1816.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who but did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Jean Baptiste died at "age 77 yrs."  One wonders which Jean Baptiste this was. 

Charles LeBlanc died in Ascension Parish in October 1817.  The Donaldson priest who recorded his burial said that Charles was married and 45 years old when he died, but the good father did not give his parents' names or the name of his wife. 

Joseph dit Atout LeBlanc died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in October 1817.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph, "called Atout," was "age 34" when he died but did not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

Jean Barthélémy LeBlanc died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, age 2, in September 1821.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give his parents' names. 

Jean LeBlanc died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in April 1822.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give his parents' names or mention a wife, said that Jean was 35 years old when he died. 

Jean LeBlanc died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in September 1822.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded his burial said that Jean was 66 years old when he died but did not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

Auguste, son of Levi LeBlanc, died in Ascension Parish, age 1, in April 1833.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not list his mother's name, and one wonders if the good father recorded the correct given name for the boy's father. 

Benjamin Hermogène LeBlanc died in Ascension Parish in July 1833.  The priest who recorded his burial, but who did not give his parents' names or mention a wife, said that Benjamin was "age 38 yrs." when he died. 

Pierre Alexis, called Alexis, LeBlanc married Spanish Creole Martine or Joséphine Sanchez or Sans and settled near Baton Rouge by the late 1830s.  Their son Alexis Pierre was born near Baton Rouge in May 1841. 

Alexis LeBlanc married Anglo American Joséphine Tompkins and settled near Baton Rouge by 1840. 

Evariste LeBlanc married French Creole Mathilde Capdevielle and settled in Ascension Parish by the early 1840s. 

François, fils, son of François LeBlanc and Joulye Brunteaux, married Yréné, daughter of Acadian Paul Hébert, at the Brusly church, West  Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1842.  Were François, père and François, fils Acadians, or were they descendants of French Creole Paul-Louis LeBlanc de Villeneuve? 

Émile LeBlanc died in Ascension Parish in March 1843.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Émile died at "age 23 years." 

Casimir LeBlanc, son of Marguerite David, "died ... at Isaac LeBlanc's Place" near Convent, St. James Parish, in September 1843.  Casimir was only 21 years old when he died; the priest who recorded his burial did not give the father's name.  Which Isaac LeBlanc was this?  Was Marguerite an Acadian David

Théophile, son of Narcisse LeBlanc, died in Ascension Parish in March 1845.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give the mother's name, said that Théophile died at "age 18 years."  Which Narcisse LeBlanc was his father? 

Joseph LeBlanc died near Convent, St. James Parish, in March 1846.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age 35 yrs." 

Denae Restival LeBlanc died in Ascension Parish in February 1849.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Denae died at "age 19 years." 

Ishae LeBlanc died in Ascension Parish in November 1849.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Ishae died at "age 30 years." 

Carmelite, daughter of Neuville LeBlanc and Émelie Terninon, married Joseph, fils, son of Joseph Digne, at the Donaldsonville church,  Ascension Parish, in September 1850.   One wonders if Neuville was Acadian. 

Simon LeBlanc married Émilia Gautreaux and settled near the boundary between Ascension and Iberville parishes by the early 1850s. 

Joseph, son of Joseph Léon LeBlanc, died in Ascension Parish in December 1851.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial did not give Joseph's mother's name or even his age at the time of his death. 

Joseph François LeBlanc died near Convent, St. James Parish, in September 1852.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did give the parents' names, said that Joseph François died at "age 12 yrs."

Modeste LeBlanc "of West Baton Rouge Parish," wife of Magloire LeBlanc, died probably in West Baton Rouge Parish in November 1853.  The Baton Rouge priest who recorded her burial, and who did not give any parents' names, said that Modeste died at "age 58 years."  Who was Magloire LeBlanc?  Was he Acadian? 

Désiré LeBlanc died near Convent, St. James Parish, in May 1854.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give the parents' names, said that Désiré died at "age 3 mos." 

Jean Armand, son of Jean Baptiste LeBlanc, died in Ascension Parish in November 1854.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give the mother's names, said that Jean Armand died at "age 2 years."  Which Jean Baptiste LeBlanc was his father? 

Lucien, son of Marcellus LeBlanc, died in Ascension Parish in December 1854.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give the mother's name, said that Lucien died at "age 3 months."  Was his father the Marcellus LeBlanc who died in Ascension Parish in March 1855?  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Marcellus died at "age 29 years." 

James LeBlanc married Mathilda LeBlanc.  Their son Isaiah James was born near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish, in August 1855.

Duminy, probably Domini, also called Dumenil, son of Sylvany LeBlanc and Azélie LeBlanc, married Julienne Élisabeth, called Élisabeth, daughter of Acadian Trasimond Babin and widow of Valentin LeBlanc, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in March 1856.  Their son Joseph A. was born in Ascension Parish in November 1858.  Domini remarried to fellow Acadian Herminie Babin at the Donaldsonville church in April 1862; they had to secure a dispensation for first degree of affinity in order to marry, so Herminie probably was another daughter of Trasimond Babin.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the second marriage, and who spelled the groom's name Dumini, did not give the couple's parents' names.  Domini and Herminie settled at La Prairie near Gonzales.  Their son Edgard Octave was born in August 1869.  Were Domini's parents Acadian? 

Edward LeBlanc married Lucile LeBlanc and settled in Iberville Parish by the late 1850s. 

Maximilien LeBlanc married Sara L. Navy, probably an Anglo American, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in April 1859.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Their son Thomas Winthrop was born in Iberville Parish in January 1866. 

____ LeBlanc married Julis Anne Delouce.  Their son Émile Antoine was born in Ascension Parish in June 1860. 

Camille LeBlanc married Élise or Eliza, called Lise Gautreaux, probably a fellow Acadian, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in July 1861.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  They settled near Gonzales. 

Joseph LeBlanc married cousin Marie Osea or Ozea, also called Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Evariste Bourque, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1862; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  They settled near Gonzales.  Their son Jean Evariste was born in July 1864, and Joseph Arthur in May 1866. 

Adolphe LeBlanc died in Iberville Parish in October 1862.  The Plaquemine priest who recorded the burial did not give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give Adolphe's age at the time of his death.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

Valéry S. LeBlanc married Clémence LeBlanc, also called Melançon.  Their son Joseph Ozémé was born in Ascension Parish in March 1863. 

Euphémon LeBlanc died in Ascension Parish in May 1863.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial did not give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give Euphémon's age at the time of his death.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

Joseph, son of Pacanie LeBlanc, died in Ascension Parish in May 1863, "age 10 years."  Was Pacanie the mother?  If so, who was the boy's father? 

Joseph Élie LeBlanc died "at La. Grande Rivière," Iberville Parish, in February 1864.  The Plaquemine priest who recorded the burial did not give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give Joseph's age at the time of his death.  Grand River is in the Atchafalaya Basin west of Plaquemine. 

Félecie LeBlanc married Spanish Creole Mathias Gonzales at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in October 1864.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Victor LeBlanc married Henriette Fagan and settled in Ascension Parish by the mid-1860s.  Was Victor Acadian?

Ysabelle, or Isabelle, LeBlanc gave birth to son William Joseph in Ascension Parish in June 1865.  The Donalsonville priest who recorded the boy's baptism the following month did not give the boy's father's name nor the mother's parents' names.  Was Ysabelle Acadian? 

Melina Soffia LeBlanc married Robert L. Gautraux, perhaps a fellow Acadian, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in September 1865.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Sylvanie, son of Azélie LeBlanc, married Sulvina, daughter of Acadian Anselme Landry, at the Gonzales church, Ascension Parish, in February 1866.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the groom's father's name.  One wonders who Azélie's parents might have been and what was Sylvanie's paternal lineage. 

Célestine LeBlanc married Joseph Alfred Blouin at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in February 1867.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Célestin LeBlanc, "res. Ascension Parish," married Marie Tureaud (she signed Thureaud) at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in April 1867.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Was Célestin Acadian?

Jean Baptiste LeBlanc died in Iberville Parish in August 1868.  The St. Gabriel priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names, said that "Jean Bte." died at "age 6 years."  So who were the boy's parents?

Jo LeBlanc married Augustine Johnson.  Their son Joseph Désiré was born in Ascension Parish in January 1870.  Was Jo Acadian? 

Joseph LeBlanc married Ethelvina Bruyere at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in January 1870.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Irma LeBlanc married C. Dalferes, Jr. at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in May 1870.  True to form, the priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

.

A LeBlanc family that settled in Iberville Parish cannot be linked by local church records to any of the other LeBlancs in the area:

Descendants of Joseph LE BLANC (?-; ?)

Joseph LeBlanc married Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, Landry.  One wonders if Joseph was an Acadian immigrant or if he was native to Louisiana. 

1

Older son Joseph, fils died near St.-Gabriel 10 days after his birth in April 1786. 

2

Younger son Joseph-Bénoni or Béloni, called Bénoni, born probably at St.-Gabriel in c1788, married Euphrosine, daughter of French Creole Antoine Lanclos and widow of Vital Rivet, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in December 1811.  Béloni took his family to the western prairies by May 1824, when he remarried at Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish. 

LOUISIANA:  LAFOURCHE VALLEY SETTLEMENTS

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

Ursule Breau, age 65, widow of Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc, her second husband, crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in mid-August.  With her were son Simon, age 23, and granddaughter Madeleine-Françoise LeBlanc, age 11.  Madeleine-Françoise married into the Giroir family and died near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in a widow, in November 1842; she was 68 years old.  Simon married at Lafourche but probably died soon after. 

Marthe LeBlanc, age 51, crossed on La Bergère with husband Pierre Landry, age 49, and four children, ages 19 to 9.   Marthe died in Assumption Parish in June 1822, a widow.  The priest who recorded her burial said that Marthe was 95 years old when she died, but she was "only" 87. 

Nathalie Pitre, age 50, second wife and widow of Jean-Jacques LeBlanc, crossed on La Bergère with two children--Jean-Baptiste, age 17, and Marie-Geneviève, called Geneviève, age 15.  Evidently Nathalie did not remarry.  One wonders is she remained on the Lafourche.  During the late 1780s or early 1790s, son Jean-Baptiste left the upper bayou and settled among his cousins at St.-Jacques.  Daughter Geneviève also moved to St.-Jacques, married into the Bourgeois family, lived briefly on upper Bayou Lafourche before returning to St.-Jacques, and died near Convent, St. James Parish, a widow, in August 1844; the priest who recorded her burial said that she died at "age 64 yrs.," but she was 74. 

Marie Aucoin, age 48, wife of Michel LeBlanc, crossed on La Bergère with two daughters--Marie-Josèphe, age 25, and Apolline-Eulalie, age 13.  One wonders why Marie went to France without her husband (she was listed on the passenger list as his wife, not his widow).  Marie-Josèphe married into the Gaudet family and died by August 1794, when her husband remarried at St.-Jacques on the river.  One wonders what happened to Apolline-Eulalie. 

Marie-Blanche LeBlanc, age 43, crossed on La Bergère with husband Pierre Richard, a 30-year-old female cousin of his, and two children, ages 19 and 16. 

Olivier LeBlanc, age 38, crossed on La Bergère with wife Marie-Madeleine Lebert, age 24, and two children--Marie-Anne, age 3, and Pierre-Olivier, age 1.  Olivier remarried at Lafourche before removing his family to the Manchac area south of Baton Rouge.   

Étienne LeBlanc, age 36, crossed on La Bergère alone.  He did not marrr.  

Élisabeth, or Isabelle, LeBlanc of Île St.-Jean, age 29, Étienne's sister, crossed on La Bergère with husband Louis-François Le Tollierec, a Frenchman, and two children, ages 4 and 1. 

.

Moïse LeBlanc, age 24, crossed on Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  With him were wife Angélique-Madeleine-Marie De La Forestrie, age 24, and two children--Marie-Josèphe, age 3, and Jean-Martin, age 1.  They did not follow the majority of their fellow passengers to the Baton Rouge/Bayou Manchac area but chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche, where five of his younger siblings also settled.  Moïse remarried to Madeleine-Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Eustache Bertrand, at Lafourche in April 1786.  He fathered another daughter by his second wife but no more sons.  His one son settled on the upper bayou. 

Joseph LeBlanc, age 19, Moïse's younger brother, crossed on Le Beaumont with four younger siblings--Jacques-Hippolyte, age 17, François-Marie, age 15, Marie-Madeleine, age 12, and Anne-Geneviève, age 9.  They followed Moïse to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Anne-Geneviève married an Achée at Lafourche and followed him to the western prairies.  The others remained on the upper bayou.  Marie Madeleine, widow of Jean-Joseph Hébert and Pierre Gerbaut or Jerbeaux, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in May 1837, in her early 60s; her succession record was filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse in June. 

.

Charles LeBlanc, age 68, crossed on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in September.  With him were second wife Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, Gautrot, age 66, and daughter Marguerite-Geneviève, age 20.  Charles and Marie-Madeleine, if they survived the crossing from France, went probably to upper Bayou Lafourche, but their daughter, who married a Duhon soon after they reached New Orleans, followed him to San Bernardo, below the city. 

Marie LeBlanc, age 58, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with second husband Eustache Trahan of Pigiguit, age 40, and no children.  One wonders what happened to them in Louisiana, or even if they survived the crossing from France.

Another Charles LeBlanc, age 52, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with second wife Rosalie Trahan, age 40, and six children--Marie-Rose, age 21, Pierre-Honoré, age 19, André-Marie, age 18, Marie-Françoise, age 16, Barbe-Anne, age 12, and infant Jean-Baptiste.  Charles's oldest son by his first wife, Charles-Jean, had crossed with his wife on Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, and gone to Manchac on the river, but they joined his family on upper Bayou Lafourche by the mid-1790s.  Despite their ages, Charles and Rosalie had more children, including a son, on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Daughter Marie Rose, wife of Théodore Bourg, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in December 1832, in her late 60s; her succession record was filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse in January. 

Pierre LeBlanc, age 51, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with wife Françoise Trahan, age 47, and four children--Marie, age 22, Geneviève, age 21, Simon, age 9, and infant Mathurine-Françoise.  They had no more children in Louisiana.  Mathurine-Françoise probably died young.  Their older daughters married into the Michel family.  Most of their children settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, where Pierre may have remarried. 

Rose or Rosalie LeBlanc of Pigiguit, age 43, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with husband Pierre Dugas, age 53, and two daughters, age 3 and an infant. 

Bibianne LeBlanc, age 40, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with husband Augustin Trahan, age 50, and a 12-year-old daughter.  Bibianne died by December 1795, when her husband remarried at Lafourche. 

Thomas LeBlanc, age 39, crossed on Le St.-Rémi alone. 

Joseph LeBlanc, age 31, also crossed on Le St.-Rémi alone.  He married twice on the upper bayou. 

.

Pierre LeBlanc, age 49, crossed on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in early November.  With him was wife Marie-Blanche Landry, age 52, and daughter Marguerite-Anne, age 16.  Marguerite-Anne married into the Boudreaux family.  Pierre may have remarried on upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Marie LeBlanc, age 25, wife of Jean-Baptiste Daigle, crossed on L'Amitié with two infant daughters.  Marie's husband, age 25, appears on the ship's debarkation but not on its embarkation list, so he may have been a stowaway.  Marie died by April 1786, when Jean-Baptiste remarried at Lafourche.  He took his daughters to upper Bayou Lafourche, but they did not survive childhood. 

.

Claude-Marie LeBlanc, age 20, crossed alone on La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in late December.  He married on the bayou.   

.

The LeBlancs from France who remained on Bayou Lafourche created a third center of family settlement there:

Descendants of Charles LEBLANC (1734-?; Daniel, André)

Charles, son of Claude-André LeBlanc and Madeleine Boudrot, born at Grand-Pré in April 1734, married Anne Benoit probably on one of the Maritime islands in c1758, just before the British deported them to France.  They survived the crossing aboard the transport Tamerlan, which reached St.-Malo in January 1759.  Charles worked as a day laborer and a sawyer in France.  Anne died from giving birth to son Charles-Jean at Châteauneuf, near St.-Malo, in September 1761.  Charles remarried to Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Claude Trahan, at St.-Servan, also near St.-Malo, in February 1763.  She gave him many more children, including at least half a dozen sons.  They were among the hundreds of Acadians from the St.-Malo area who went to the Poitou region in the early 1770s as part of a settlement scheme.  After the settlement failed, they retreated with most of the Poitou Acadians to Nantes in late 1775.  They sailed to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, a decade later and followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche, where they had more children, including a son.  Charles was in his mid-60s and Rosalie in her early 50s when Spanish officials counted them on their six arpents along the upper bayou in January 1798; typical of the Acadians in the area at that time, they held no slaves.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Bourg, and Hébert families.  Three of Charles's eight sons died young in France, and three of them created families of their own, but only one, possibly two, of their lines survived, one of them on the river.  Charles's daughter Barbe Anne, widow of Olivier Hébert, died in Terrebonne Parish in January 1858, age 85--one of the last Acadian immigrants in Louisiana to join our ancestors. 

1

Oldest son Charles-Jean, also called Jean-Charles, from his father's first wife, born at Châteauneuf, France, near St.-Malo, in September 1761, married Brigitte-Josèphe, daughter of fellow Acadian Amable Hébert, probably at Nantes, France, in the early 1780s.  They sailed to Louisiana aboard Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and went first to Baton Rouge before moving to upper Bayou Lafourche, where his family had settled.  They lived at New Orleans during the late 1790s, where they buried five of their children, ages 14 to infant, in September and October 1799--victims, most likely, of a yellow fever epidemic that struck the city.  Their son Jean-Charles, fils, called Charles, was born at Manchac in April 1788, Amable-André or André-Amable, called André, at Assumption in February 1794, Augustin in c1796 but died at New Orleans, age 3, in October 1799, Charles, described by the priest who buried him as a "very young child," died at New Orleans in September 1799, and Alexandre was baptized at New Orleans, age 2 months, in January 1801.  In a reversal of the usual Acadian settlement pattern, their only married son "returned" to the river and settled in Iberville Parish. 

1a

André Amable married Marguerite Joséphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Braud, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in November 1818.  They remained on the river, where André remarried. 

1b

Jean Charles, fils may have died in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1824.  If so, he would have been 36 years old, not age 26 as recorded by the priest, who did not bother to give Jean Charles's parents names or mention a wife. 

2

Pierre-Honoré, by his father's second wife, born at St.-Servan, France, in July 1765, married Anne-Henriette, daughter of fellow Acadian Étienne Boudreaux, at Lafourche in February 1792.  Anne had come to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships from France.  Their daughters married into the Guidry and Prejean families.  Pierre-Honoré died at St.-Jacques on the river in August 1796; he was only 31 years old; his succession record was filed at what became the Thibodauxville courthouse, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1797.  His line of the family, except for its blood, probably died with him. 

3

André-Marie, by his father's second wife, born at St.-Servan, France, in November 1766, married Marie-Louise, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Hébert, at Assumption in October 1793.  Marie-Louise had come to Louisiana aboard La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships from France.  They were still childless five years later.   André may have remarried to French Creole Mélanie Labiche.  Their son Valsin was born in Assumption Parish in March 1816, and George Thomas in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1822, when André would have been in his early 50s and 60s, so this may not have been him.  André died in Lafourche Interior Parish in July 1848; he was 81 years old; the Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial said that André Marie was married to "Maxie Pitre."  

4

Grégoire-Charles, by his father's second wife, born at St.-Servan, France, in May 1771, died at St.-Servan, age 1, in July 1772. 

5

Jean-Baptiste, by his father's second wife, baptized at St.-Jean L'Evangeliste, Châtellerault, France, age unrecorded, in June 1774, died at Châtellerault in mid-July, age 1 month. 

6

Louis-René, by his father's second wife, baptized at Ste.-Croix, Nantes, France, age unrecorded, in April 1779, died at Ste.-Croix, age 2 1/2, in September 1781. 

7

Jean-Baptiste, by his father's second wife, the second with the name, born at Nantes, France, in October 1784, was still living with his parents on upper Bayou Lafourche in January 1798, age 14.  Did he ever marry?  He may have been the Jean Baptiste LeBlanc who died in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1850; the Thibodaux priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Jean Baptiste died "at age 70 yrs.," but this Jean Baptiste would have been 65. 

8

Youngest son Honoré, by his father's second wife, born likely at Lafourche in c1792 or 1793, was 4 years old when he appeared in the Valenzuéla census of April 1797 with the rest of his family, but he does not appear with them in the January 1798 census, so he probably died young. 

Thomas LEBLANC (c1746-1786; Daniel, ?)

Thomas LeBlanc, born in Acadia in c1746, was deported to France probably in the late 1750s.  He became a tailor in the mother country and sailed to Louisiana alone aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  He followed the majority of his fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he died in December 1786, only 40 years old.  He does not seem to have married. 

Étienne LEBLANC (c1749-1799; Daniel, René, Claude)

Étienne, son of probably Félix LeBlanc and his first wife Marie-Josèphe Thériot, born perhaps at Pigiguit in c1749, was deported to France probably from Île St.-Jean in 1758-59.  In 1764, he followed his family from St.-Malo to Boulogne but returned to the St.-Malo area, where he lived at St.-Servan and Plelo.  He became a plowman in France.  Still a bachelor, he followed his younger sister Élisabeth's family to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and settled with them on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Still a bachelor, he was living with his sister's family on the upper bayou in 1795.  Two years later, Spanish officials counted him again on the upper bayou; he was still unmarried and owned three slaves.  He died at New Orleans in August 1799, age 50.  Evidently he did not marry.     

Descendants of Joseph LEBLANC (c1753-1836; Daniel, René, Jacques)

Joseph, son of Honoré LeBlanc and Marie-Josèphe Trahan, born at L'Assomption, Pigiguit, in c1753, followed his family into exile to Virginia in 1755 and then on to Liverpool, England, the following year.  He was still a child when his family was repatriated to France in May 1763.  They landed at Morlaix and then, two years later, moved on to Le Palais, Belle-Île-en-Mer, off the southern coast of Brittany.  Joseph, while in his early 30s, sailed to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785; according to the ship's passenger list, he was still a bachelor.  He followed most of his fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marguerite, daughter of perhaps Charles Foret, a fellow Acadian, in the late 1780s, although the baptism of Joseph, fils, son of Joseph LeBlanc and Marguerite Foret, at Lafourche in December 1785, three months after Le St.-Rémi reached New Orleans, hints that Joseph and Marguerite may have been married when they reached the colony despite Joseph's being listed as single on the ship's passenger list and in the Valenzuéla census of 1788.  Joseph remarried to Marie-Rose, called Rose, daughter of fellow Acadian François Landry, at Lafourche in November 1793.  Joseph held two slaves on the upper bayou in 1797.  Their daughters married into the Girot, Landry, LeBlanc, and Mollere families.  Joseph died in Assumption Parish in August 1836; the Plattenville priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph died at "age ca. 87 yrs.," but he probably was a few years younger.  Four of his sons created families of their own and remained on Bayou Lafourche. 

1

Joseph, fils, perhaps the oldest son by his father's first wife, baptized at Lafourche, age unrecorded, in December 1785, may have died young. 

2

Pierre-Urbin, -Lubin, or -Aubin, from his father's first wife, born probably at Lafourche in c1787, married Marie Mélanie, called Mélanie, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Aucoin, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in October 1810.  Their son Laurent Thomas, called Thomassin, was born in Assumption Parish in November 1814, Evariste Anaclet in September 1816, and Germain Valéry in May 1820.  Their daughters married into the Achée, Landry, LeBlanc, Rivet, and Suarez families.  Pierre Urbin remarried to Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Landry and widow of Étienne Daigle, at the Plattenville church in January 1827.  Pierre Urbin died in Assumption Parish in October 1832; he was only 45 years old. 

2a

Thomassin, by his father's first wife, married cousin Adelina or Delina, daughter of Hermogène LeBlanc, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1833.  Their son Hubert Rosémond was born in Assumption Parish in January 1835 but died at age 3 weeks in February.  Adelina died in Assumption Parish in September 1836; she was only 20 years old.  Thomassin remarried to Marie Céleste, daughter of Louis Hobe, Hope, Hoppe, Ope, or Opes, at the Plattenville church in October 1837; Marie's mother was a Pitre.  Their son Valsin Amédée, called Amédée, was born in Assumption Parish in October 1838 but died at age 10 1/2 in July 1849, Michel Camille was born in September 1840 but died 6 days after his birth, and Jules Joseph Augustin was born near Paincourtville in August 1849.  Their daughter married into the Ducasse family at Pierre Part.  Thomassin died in Assumption Parish in November 1850; he was only 36 years old. 

Hubert Rosémond, by his father's first wife, married Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Dugas, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in September 1859.  Their son Joseph Armogène, called Armogène, was born near Paincourtville in December 1860 but died at age 1 1/2 in May 1862.

2b

Evariste Anaclet, by his father's first wife, married Edesie or Elesie, also called Desie and Daisie, daughter of fellow Acadian Guillaume Jean Bourg, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in August 1834.  Their son Evariste Désiré, called Désiré, was born in Assumption Parish in July 1838 but died at age 10 1/2 in March 1849, Joachim Joseph was born in November 1839, Émile Urbain in December 1841, Septiene Augustin, called Augustin, in August 1846 but died at age 1 1/2 in November 1847, and Paulin Eusilien was born in January 1854.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Oncale, and Vallet families.  Evariste likely died in Assumption Parish in April 1865; the Paincourtville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Evariste died at "age 50 years"; this Evariste would have been 48 years old. so this probably was him.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

2c

Germain, by his father's first wife, married Helena, Elina, or Eldia, daughter of fellow Acadian Eugène Landry, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1839.   Their son Joseph was born near Plattenville in April 1842, Joseph Eugène, called Eugène, near Paincourtville in March 1847, another Joseph in November 1849 but may have died at age 5 1/2 in August 1855, Joseph Ulysse was born in December 1856, Joseph Albert near Labadieville in July 1861, and Joseph Émile near Paincourtville in May 1864. They also had an older son named Alcée, unless he was the first Joseph.  Germain died near Paincourtville in September 1868; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names nor even mention a wife, said that Germain died at "age 49 years"; Germain Valéry was 48. 

Alcée married cousin Virginie, daughter of Bernard François Alfred LeBlanc, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in October 1867; Virginie's mother, also, was a LeBlanc.  They settled on the bayou between Paincourtville and Plattenville.  Their son Joseph Alfrede, also called Alfred Joseph, was born in September 1868 but died at age 1 in August 1869, and Joseph Arthur was born in July 1870. 

Joseph, called Joseph E. by the recording priest, married cousin Camille, daughter of fellow Acadian Xavier Dugas, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1867; Camille's mother, also, was a Landry; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Robert Edmond was born near Paincourtville in November1870. 

Eugène married Félicia, daughter of fellow Acadian Neuville Blanchard, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in September 1870.

4b

Hippolyte married Adeline, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Daigle, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1868; Hippolyte was 38 years old at the time of the wedding, so one wonders if this was his first marriage. 

5

Valéry-Cyprien, by his father's second wife, baptized at Assumption, age unrecorded, in October 1796, married cousin Marie Hortense, called Hortense, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Raphaël Landry and widow of Julien Martin, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1821.  They lived near the boundary between Ascension and Assumption parishes.  Their son Léon Désiré or Désiré Léon was born in October 1822, Séverin in February 1826 but died in late March, Eusèbe Alcide, called Alcide, was born in August 1829, Valéry Louis François, called Louis, in August 1831 but died at age 3 in September 1834, Casimir died at age 1 month in April 1836, Aubin Aristide, called Aristide, was born in March 1837, Joseph Raphaël in June 1840, Eulisse, probably Ulysse, died at at age 2 in August 1846, and Jule Adrien was born in March 1848.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Clément (Foreign French, not Acadian), Delaville, Garot, Gaudin, LeBlanc, and Schomer families; one of them, Joséphine, married three times in three years!  Valéry died in Assumption Parish in December 1861; the Plattenville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Valéry died at "age 65 years." 

5a

5b

5d

Aristide died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in August 1865.  He was only 28 years old.  One wonders if he married and if his death was war-related.

Descendants of Pierre-Honoré LEBLANC (1765-1796; Daniel, André, Claude-André)

Joseph, second son of Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc and his second wife Marguerite Célestin dit Bellemère, born at Le Palais, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in March 1766, became a sailor in France.  He sailed to Louisiana with an older married brother and four younger siblings aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and went to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Gautreaux, in May 1788.  Marie-Madeleine had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships.  They were living at New Orleans in May 1801, when a daughter was baptized there.  They returned to the bayou.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux family.  Joseph died in Lafourche Interior Parish in July 1829; the priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph was 65 years old when he died, but he was "only" 63; his succession inventory record was filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse later that month.

1c

4c

During the War of 1861 Ovile Bernard served in Company D of the 26th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Lafourche Parish, which fought at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  Oville was "severely wounded" on 26 June 1863, during the final days of the Siege of Vicksburg.  While waiting for his unit to be exchanged after its surrender at Vicksburg, Ovile died in Lafourche Parish in April 1864, probably from his wounds.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial said that Ovile died "at age 22 yrs.," but he was a month shy of 25.  Did Ovile marry? 

4d

Oleus died near Montegut, Terrebonne Parish, in August 1866.  The priest who recorded the burial did not give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give Oleus's age at the time of his death.  He would have been only 24 years old.  Did he marry? 

4e

Félix Simonette married Amelia, daughter of French Creole Valéry Berthelot, at the Montegut church, Terrebonne Parish, in August 1870; Félix was 35 years old at the time of the wedding, so one wonders if this was his first marriage. 

Descendants of Jacques-Hippolyte LEBLANC (1768-1844; Daniel, René, François)

Jacques-Hippolyte, called Hippolyte, third son of Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc and his second wife Marguerite Célestin dit Bellemère, born at Bangor, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in March 1768, became a carpenter in France.  He sailed to Louisiana with five siblings aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Still a bachelor, he was living with two younger siblings on the upper bayou in 1797.  He married Marie-Marguerite, called Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Gaudet of St.-Jacques, probably at Assumption in the 1790s.  They lived near the boundary of what became Assumption and Interior, later Lafourche Interior, parishes.  Their daughters married into the Aucoin, Boudreaux, Bourg, Breaux, Broussard, and Lamoureaux families.  Jacques Hippolyte died in Lafourche Interior Parish in September 1844; the Thibodaux priest who recorded his burial said that Jacques Hyppolite, as he called him, died "at age 78 yrs.," but he was "only" 76.

Oldest son Joseph-Henri, born at Assumption in January 1803, may have died young.

1

Oldest son Joseph dit Moïse, by his father's first wife, born at Ascension in July 1806, married Marie, 18-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Alexis Lejeune, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in January 1826.  Their son Alexis Joseph was born in Assumption Parish in December 1826, twins Adam Alexis and Baptiste Adam in Lafourche Interior Parish in August 1831 but Adam Alexis died at age 7 days, Adam François or François Adam was born in September 1834, Joseph Hilaire, called Hilaire, in June 1837, Harrison Ulysse, perhaps also called Alexandre, in August 1839, Michel Adam in November 1841, Théodule Théophile in January 1844, and Adrien Joseph in May 1850.  Their daughters married into the Babin and Breaux families.  An "application for administration" was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse, Lafourche Interior Parish, for child Joseph Adrien (probably Adrien Joseph) in May 1850; one wonders why.  Joseph dit Moïse died in Lafourche Parish in August 1866; the Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial said that Joseph Moïse died "at age 67 yrs.," but he was "only" 60; a succession inventory and tutorship request, naming his wife and surviving children, was filed at the Houma courthouse the following October.

~

During the late colonial period, LeBlancs from France who had gone to river communities moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, but no new lasting family lines came of it: 

The succession record of Marie LeBlanc, wife of Jean Guidry dit Grivois, was filed at what became the Houma courthouse, Terrebonne Parish, in September 1807.  She would have been in her late 70s that year. 

Adélaïde Marguerite, called Marguerite, LeBlanc, wife of François Roger, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in June 1827.  The Thibodauxville priest who recorded her burial said that Marguerite was 55 years old when she died, but she was only 45.  Her succession record was filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse in July. 

Rosalie LeBlanc, wife of Noël Victor Boudreaux, died in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1836, in her early 50s. 

Descendants of Paul LEBLANC (c1744-; Daniel, André)

Paul, son of Claude-André LeBlanc and Madeleine Boudrot, born probably at Minas in c1744, was exiled from one of the Maritime islands probably to Boulogne, France, in 1758.  He arrived at St.-Malo, France, from Boulogne in July 1766 and lived at nearby St.-Servan, where he married cousin Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian François Boudrot of Grand-Pré, in May 1770.  They sailed to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785, and followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Baton Rouge, where Spanish officials counted them in 1792.  They had more children at Baton Rouge.  By the mid-1790s, however, they had moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughters married into the Bergeron, Boudreaux, Roger, and Rousseau families.  Paul's only son married but may not have fathered sons of his own, so this line of the family, except for its blood, probably did not survive. 

Joseph-Marie, baptized by a Pointe Coupée priest probably at Baton Rouge, age unrecorded, in August 1790, married cousin Madeleine Constance, daughter of fellow Acadian Théodore Bourg, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in September 1816; Madeleine's mother was a LeBlanc.  Joseph's succession inventory and estimation was filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1820; he would have been 30 years old that year.  Did he father any sons? 

~

Beginning in the late colonial and continuing well into the antebellum period, LeBlancs from Halifax, Maryland, and France, or their descendants, including several sets of brothers, moved from the river to Bayou Lafourche, adding substantially to that center of family settlement: 

Marie LeBlanc, wife of Pierre LeBlanc, died on upper Bayou Lafourche in September 1796.  She was only 50 years old. 

Marie Marguerite, called Marguerite, LeBlanc, wife of Joseph Gaudet, died on the upper bayou in March 1805, in her mid-50s. 

Anne LeBlanc, widow of Jean Duhon, died in Assumption Parish in February 1831, in her early 80s. 

A succession inventory record for Marie Madeleine, called Madeleine, LeBlanc, widow of third husband Jacques Lamothe, was filed at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in July 1842.  She would have been in her mid-80s that year. 

Descendants of Mathurin LEBLANC (c1759-c1825; Daniel, Antoine, René)

Mathurin, third son of Étienne LeBlanc and Élisabeth or Isabelle Boudrot, born in Acadia in c1759 during Le Grand Dérangement, may have been counted with his family at Fort Edward, formerly Pigiguit, Nova Scotia, in the early 1760s.  He followed his family from Halifax to Louisiana in 1765 and settled with them at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques and then at Ascension, where Spanish officials counted him with his widowed mother and siblings on the right, or west, bank of the river in 1770 and 1777.  Mathurin married Marie-Rose or Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Theriot, at St.-Jacques in May 1778.  By the early 1790s, they had moved to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughters married into the Bergeron, Chauvin, Hébert, and Terrebonne families.  Mathurin's succession record was filed at the Houma courthouse, Terrebonne Parish, in December 1825; he would have been 66 years old that year.  In a reversal of the usual Acadian settlement pattern, at least two of his daughters returned to the river.  His only son remained on Bayou Lafourche and had many sons of his own.  Two of Mathurin's LeBlanc nephews followed him to upper Bayou Lafourche. 

Charles-Mathurin or -Étienne, called Étienne, born at St.-Jacques in May 1788, married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Melançon, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in August 1809.  Their son Étienne, fils was born in Ascension Parish in May 1810, Narcisse Toussaint or Toussaint Narcisse in November 1811, Pierre Paul, called Paul, in Assumption Parish in October 1816, Charles, also called Clarke, in August 1819, Jacques Delphin, called Delphin, J. Delphin, and Delphine, in Lafourche Interior Parish in September 1821, and Ursin in October 1823.  Their daughters married into the Bertrand and Richard families.  Étienne, père died in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1828; the priest who recorded his burial said that Charles Étienne, as he called him, died "at age 40 yrs."; his succession inventory, which called him Étienne, was filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse in November.  All six of his sons created families of their own and settled in Lafourche Interior Parish; half of them married Robichauxs. 

Étienne, fils married Azélie Rosalie, 15-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Bertrand, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in August 1830.  Their son Étienne III was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in April 1833, and Joseph Émile, called Émile, in April 1845.  Their daughters married into the Breaux, Chauvin, and Foret families. 

Étienne III may have died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in October 1853.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Étienne died at "age 23 years,", but Étienne III would have been only 20.  Did he marry?  Was he a victim of the yellow fever epidemic that struck South Louisiana during the summer and fall of 1853? 

Émile married Élodie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Lejeune, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in January 1867.

Narcisse Toussaint married Celina, Celima, Elina, Estina, Melina, Tellina, or Zelima, 17-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Robichaux, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in August 1831.  Their son Narcisse, fils was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1832, Joseph in October 1837, Prosper in October 1839, Eugène in June 1845, Joseph Narcisse, called Narcisse, in August 1849 but died at age 5 1/2 in June 1855, Joseph Lovinsy, called Lovinsy, was born in July 1851, and Pierre near Raceland in March 1856.  They were living near Lockport a year or so later.  They also had an older son name J. Étienne and a younger son named Jean.  Their daughters married into the Foret and Marks families.  Narcisse Toussaint died near Lockport in April 1867; the priest who recorded the burial said that Toussaint Narcisse, as he called him, died "at age 54 yrs. & 4 mths.," but he was 55; a "letter of executorship" in Narcisse Toussaint's name, listing his wife and minor children, was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse in February 1868.  Strangely, a burial record at the Lockport church says that Narcisse LeBlanc died in July 1867 "at age 69 yrs."; the priest who recorded the burial did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, so one wonders if this Narcisse was Narcisse Toussaint; if it was, the priest missed the dead man's age by 14 years! 

J. Étienne married cousin Odalie or Ordalie, perhaps also called Nathalie, daughter of Joseph Narcisse LeBlanc, at the Raceland church, Lafourche Parish, in August 1855.  They settled near Lockport.  Their son Coplin von was born in March 1858, Joseph Elphise in February 1861, Jean le jeune in February 1864, and Joseph Cleopha in November 1866. 

Joseph Narcisse married Célestine, also called Justine Celesta, daughter of German Creole Joseph Toups, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in April 1858; Célestine's mother was an Acadian Bourgeois.  Their son Étienne le jeune was born near Lockport in April 1859, Albert in January 1865, and Émile in March 1869.  ...

Eugène married cousin Louisa, daughter of John Dalferes, at the Lockport church, Lafourche Parish, in April 1866; Louisa's mother was a LeBlanc.

Paul married 18-year-old Melite, also called Émelia, another daughter of Joseph Robichaux, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in June 1837.  Their son Joseph Paul, called Paul, fils, was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in July 1838, Charles A. in March 1840, Joseph Étienne in July 1847, and Joseph Cleopha, called Cleopha, in May 1850 but died at age 2 in 1/2 in October 1852. 

Joseph Paul married Philomène Daunis or Dannis at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in August 1864.

Charles married Elisa, Elida, or Eliza, also called Lisa, 17-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Valéry Breaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in June 1845.  Their son Louis Oscar, called Oscar, was born near Lockport in November 1851, Alidor in May 1855, Charles, fils in August 1863, and Joseph Wakour in November 1864.  They also had a son named Ozémé, unless he was Alidor.  Their daughters married into the Bourgeois and Gonzales families. 

Oscar married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Marcellus Daigle, at the Lockport church, Lafourche Parish, in August 1869. 

Ozémé married Celina, daughter of Sosthène Folse, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in June 1870.

Ursin married Nesida, also called Elesida, Elezida, Lezida, Eliside, and Eliza, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Part, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in July 1847.  They settled near Lockport and Raceland.  Their son André Léon, called Léo, was born in November 1848, Pierre Marie in October 1851, Albert in November 1854, Paul Edgar in February 1857, Augustin Camille in April 1859, and Thomas in July 1863. 

Léo married Marie Louise, daughter of Honoré Beranger, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in March 1867.  Their son Louis was born near Raceland in August 1869. 

Jacques Delphin married Émelia, daughter of fellow Acadian Marcellin Robichaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in November 1854.  Their son Jacques Philippe died at age 2 years, 4 months, in June 1857, twins Joseph Anathole and Philippe Émile were born in September 1855 but Joseph Anathole died the following December, a second Jacques Philippe was born in March 1857, and Joseph Delphin posthumously in April 1868.  Although Jacques Delphin was listed as deceased in a June 1857 burial record of a son, he did not die until September 1867; the Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial said that J. D., as he called him, died "at age 47 yrs.," but he was only 46; his youngest son was born seven months later. 

Descendants of Joseph LEBLANC (c1773-1829; Daniel, Antoine, René, Étienne)

Joseph, eldest son of Simon LeBlanc and Élisabeth or Isabelle LeBlanc and nephew of Mathurin, was born probably at Ascension in c1773.  Joseph married Apolline, daughter of fellow Acadian François Dugas, at Ascension in February 1797.  Their daughter married into the Simoneaux family.  Joseph remarried to Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Babin and widow of Noël Michel Dugas, at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, in June 1810, and remarried again--his third marriage--to first cousin Julie Clothilde, called Clothilde, daughter of fellow Acadian Michel Dugas, at the Donaldson church in May 1812; they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their daughters married into the Dugas and Marroy families.  Joseph moved his family to upper Bayou Lafourche by the mid-1820s and died in Assumption Parish in March 1829; he was 56 years old.  Only three of his seven sons seem to have produced family lines that survived, one of them on the river. 

1

Oldest son Joseph Narcisse, called Narcisse, from his father's first wife, born probably at Ascension in the late 1790s, married Joséphine, daughter of French Creole Alphonse Senette, at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, in September 1819.  They lived near the boundary between Ascension and Assumption parishes.  Their son Joseph le jeune was born in July 1820, a son, name unrecorded, died 3 days after his birth in September 1821, Narcisse, fils was born in June 1826, Honoré died at age 6 weeks in September 1833, and Honoré Joseph died 8 days after his birth in October 1834.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Dalferes, and LeBlanc families.  Narcisse, père remarried to cousin Séraphine, also called Marcellite, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Daigle, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1835; Séraphine's mother was a LeBlanc.  They also lived near the boundary between Assumption and Ascension parishes.  Their son Joseph Leufroi, called Leufroi, was born in November 1835 but died at age 1 1/2 in July 1837, and Marcellin, also called Marcel and Marcellus, was born in January 1838.  Their daughter married a LeBlanc cousin in Lafourche Parish.  Narcisse's oldest son left the bayou and settled near Baton Rouge; his youngest son moved down bayou to lower Lafourche Parish.

Joseph, perhaps by his father's first wife, died in Assumption Parish in November 1867.  The Paincourtville priest who recorded the burial, and who gave the father's but not the mother's name, said that Joseph died at "age 29 years."  One wonders if he married. 

6

7

Youngest son Joseph Valéry, called Valéry, from his father's third wife, born in Assumption Parish in February 1826, married cousin Clementine or Clémence, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Melançon, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1845; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  They lived in Ascension Parish perhaps near the boundary with Assumption.  Their son Joseph Clairbone, probably Claiborne, was born in July 1868, and François Sidney in October 1870.  Their daughter married into the Daigle family at Donaldsonville.

1

Oldest son Joseph, by his father's first wife, born at St.-Jacques in August 1798, married cousin Marie Josèphe, perhaps also called Marie Amelie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Melançon, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in December 1815; Marie's mother was a LeBlanc.  They lived near the boundary between St. James and Ascension parishes.  Their son Joseph Adrien, called Adrien and J.

2a

Victor Marcellin likely married fellow Acadian Amelie or Émelie Richard.  Their son Joseph Sosthène, called Sosthène, born perhaps in St. Martin Parish, west of the Atchafalaya Basin, in November 1846, was baptized at Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, the following March, Joseph Elphége, called Elphége, was born probably near Paincourtville in August 1849, François Xavier in December 1855, and Jean Marcel in December 1857.  Victor died in Assumption Parish in November 1867; the Paincourtville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Victor died at "age 47 years"; Victor Marcellin would have been 46, so this probably was him.

Other LEBLANCs in the Lafourche/Terrebonne Valley

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many LeBlancs in the Bayou Lafourche/Bayou Terrebonne valley with known Acadian lines of the family there:

The succession inventory of Charles LeBlanc, husband of Barbe LeBlanc, was filed at what became the Thibodauxville courthouse, Interior Parish, in December 1805.  Was Charles Acadian?

Stanislas, son of Louis LeBlanc and Euphrosine Dalesse, married Julienne, daughter of Bernard Ganivel, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in July 1840.  How was Louis kin to the Acadian LeBlancs in the area?  Stanislas and Julienne were living in St. Mary Parish on lower Bayou Teche by the mid-1840s.

Joseph LeBlanc married Anglo American Rebecca Williams at the Episcopal church in Thibodaux, Lafourche Interior Parish, in May 1850.  The minister who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Did Joseph convert to the Protestant faith, or did he simply agree to marry in his wife's parish church?

"Mr. ____ LeBlanc" died in Assumption Parish in March 1858.  The Plattenville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that LeBlanc died at "age ca. 30 years," so it is anyone's guess who this may have been.

Désiré, son of Elizabeth Ayou, married Marie, daughter of Spanish Creole Antoine Martinez, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1868.  Who was Désiré's father.  Was he Acadian?

Jules, son of Désirée, perhaps Désiré, LeBlanc, died near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in October 1868.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give the boy's father's, or perhaps mother's, name, said that Jules died at "age 11 months."  If the father's name was Désiré, one wonders which one it might have been. 

Ozémé LeBlanc married French Creole Marie Mathilde Gaspard in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in March 1869, and sanctified the marriage at the Chacahoula church, Terrebonne Parish, in June 1870.  Neither the parish clerk nor the priest who recorded the marriage gave the couple's parents' names.  Their son Jean Augustin was born near Chacahoula in May 1870. 

Orvile LeBlanc married Octavie Trosclair in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in November 1869.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  They settled near Chacahoula. 

Marie LeBlanc married Joseph Pontiff in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in January 1870.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Julie, daughter of Simonette LeBlanc, married C. Oscar, son of Ferdinand Lasseigne, at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1870; C. Oscar's mother was a Sonnier.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the bride's mother's name, unless Simonette was the name of the mother; in that case, the priest did not give the bride's father's name.  If the father was Simonette, one wonders which of the many Simonette LeBlancs he may have been. 

Séraphine, probably Séraphin, LeBlanc married cousin Ozelina, perhaps Azelima Séraphina, daughter of Auguste LeBlanc.  Their son Ernest Augustin was born near Montegut, Terrebonne Parish, in October 1870.  Who were Séraphin's parents, and was this his actual name?

A LeBlanc family living on Bayou Lafourche during the antebellum and post-war periods cannot be linked by area church records with other members of the family in the area:

NON-ACADIAN FAMILIES in LOUISIANA

LeBlanc is a common surname in France and other parts of Europe, as well as in French Canada.  Although the great majority of LeBlancs who settled in South Louisiana were Acadians, non-Acadians settled there, too, some of them early in the colonial period.  A few of the early settlers, in fact, were colonial officials, and one was a naval officer.  During the late colonial period, two non-Acadian LeBlancs settled among Acadians on Bayou Teche and two others on the Acadian Coast:

One of the upriver settlements in French Louisiana during the 1720s, located near present-day Yazoo, Mississippi, was called the Dasfeld-LeBlanc concession.  The fort there, St.-Claude, built in 1722, was the site of an Indian massacre in 1729 that occurred about the same time that the Natchez Indians killed the French settlers at Fort Rosalie, farther downriver at present-day Natchez, Mississippi. 

Cécile LeBlanc was the wife of a colonial councilor at New Orleans in the 1720s. 

In 1723, a Captain LeBlanc, "acting as major," an officer in the garrison at New Orleans, precipitated a dispute with Capuchin Father Raphaël de Luxemburg, pastor of the city's St.-Louis church, over the placement of the lectern in the church sanctuary.  The reverend father "won" the dispute. 

Marianne, daughter of Henry LeBlanc, former custodian of the colonial magazine, and Seruanne Le Marie of St. Laurent, near St.-Malo, France, married Claude, son of Jean-Baptiste Jousset de la Loire of Montréal, at New Orleans in February 1725. 

Marianne's sister Françoise-Laurence married Joseph Chauvin Delery of Montréal, widower of Hypolite Mercier, at New Orleans in May 1726. 

Marianne and Françoise-Laurence's sister Seruanne-Pérrine-Laurence married Bernard-Alexandre or Alexandre-Bernard, son of Pierre Vielle, burgher of Paris, and Élisabeth LeBlanc, at New Orleans in June 1726.  Alexandre-Bernard was head surgeon at New Orleans. 

Pierre Le Blanc was a victim of the massacre at Natchez on 28 November 1729. 

Catherine-Élisabeth, daughter of André LeBlanc and Catherine Renaud of Chouat, Saxe, France, and widow of Nicolas Alexandre of Natchez, married Nicolas Joseph, son of Pierre Larquet of Reims, France, at New Orleans in June 1730.  Catherine-Élisabeth's first husband probably was one of the victims of the Natchez War of 1729. 

A Monsieur LeBlanc served as witness to the marriage of Christophe-Athanase-Fortuna de Mézières of Paris and Marie-Petronille-Félicienne St.-Denis, daughter of the former commandant of the Poste des Natchitoches, at Natchitoches in April 1746. 

Charles, also called Joseph, son of Jacques LeBlanc and Marie-Rose ______ of Bruges, Flanders, married Marie-Josèphe, called Josèphe, daughter of Philippe Veuvre, surnamed Adam, at New Orleans in April 1763.  Marie-Josèphe was a native of the city.  Joseph was a master tailor.  Their son Joseph, fils was born at New Orleans in April 1764. 

Michel LeBlanc, "native of Germany," died at "the hospital for the poor," probably Charity Hospital, at New Orleans in August 1773.  He was only 45 years old. 

Charles, son of Thomas and Pérrine LeBlanc, "natives of Pennsylvania," married Geneviève, daughter of Jacques Fayard, at New Orleans in September 1773.  Geneviève was a native of the city.  One wonders if Charles was an Acadian who came to Louisiana in the late 1760s.  If he was Acadian, the birthplace of his parents makes no sense. 

Louis, son of Guillaume LeBlanc and Marie Schmit "of Carolina," married Catherine, daughter of André Olivaux, at Pointe Coupée in December 1778.  Their son Louis, fils was baptized at Pointe Coupée, age 15 months, in July 1781. 

Antoine-Louis, son of Manuel LeBlanc and Isabelle Vincent of Marseille, France, married Louise, daughter of Jean-Baptiste Govin of Poitiers, France, probably at New Orleans.  Louise was a native of the city.  Their son François-Arsène was born at New Orleans in December 1791.  François-Arsène died probably in the city in August 1841, age 49. 

Georges LeBlanc married Marie Touranchen or Turangena and settled at St.-Jean-Baptiste des Allemands on the Upper German Coast by the early 1790s   Their son Jean was born probably at St.-Jean-Baptiste in June 1794. 

Archival LeBlanc married Marguerite Montanary.  Their daughter Marie-Archival, native of New Orleans, married into the Piquery family in the city in November 1798. 

Céleste LeBlanc gave birth to a daughter at New Orleans in October 1799.  The priest who recorded the girl's baptism did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names. 

Anne LeBlanc married Domingue Bouligni of the Louisiana regiment.  Their marriage was recorded at New Orleans in May 1803.  One wonders if Anne was Acadian. 

Louis LeBlanc married ____ Cheval probably at New Orleans during the late colonial period. 

Jean LeBlanc married Catherine Dubois.  Their daughter Marguerite died at New Orleans in November 1801. 

.

A young French naval officer came to the colony in the 1750s, married a fellow native of France, and established a large family.  His descendants settled in the Pointe Coupée/West Baton Rouge area as well as at New Orleans.  Typical of upper-caste Creoles, few, if any of them, married Acadians:

Descendants of Paul-Louis LEBLANC de Villeneuve (?-?)

Paul-Louis, called Louis, son of Balthazar-Alese LeBlanc de Villeneuve of Craye, Dauphiné Province, in southeastern France, came to the colony as a young navy lieutenant in c1750.  The de in his surname was no colonial affectation; his family was of the lesser nobility.  Paul-Louis married Marie-Jeanne-Robert Avart probably at New Orleans in the 1750s.  After he left the naval service, he served as major in the New Orleans militia.  He was brevetted lieutenant colonel "of the royal armies" and served as adjutant major of the Louisiana regiment.  He also was the author of a play, The Festival of the Young Corn, or the Heroism of Poucha-Houmma, which was first performed in New Orleans in 1809.  He and his wife had many sons, at least five of whom also served as officers in the Louisiana regiment or the colonial militia.  One, perhaps two, of their sons moved to Pointe Coupée. 

1

Oldest son Louis-Alexandre-Balthazar, called Alexandre, born at New Orleans in March 1759, married Charlotte, daughter of French Creole Augustin Allain, at Pointe Coupée in August 1785.  Louis served as captain of militia at Pointe Coupée.  His son Augustin-Marie was baptized at Pointe Coupée, age unrecorded, in January 1791, Paulin was born in November 1791 but died at age 6 1/2, in July 1798, Joseph-Villeneuve, called Villeneuve, was born in November 1794, Terence le jeune was baptized, age 4 months, in September 1797, Valérien le jeune was born in December 1799, and Octave le jeune in August 1803.  Their daughter married into the Jarreau family.  Alexandre died in Pointe Coupee Parish in November 1842; the Pointe Coupee priest who recorded his burial said that Alexandre died at "age 86 years," but he was "only" 83.  His descendants settled in Pointe Coupee Parish and at Baton Rouge. 

1a

Augustin Marie married Eusèbie, daughter of French Creole Jean Baptiste Tournoir, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in February 1812.  Their son Joseph Thelisma died in Pointe Coupee Parish, age 1, in October 1820.  They also had a son named Augustin, fils.  Their daughters married into the Decoux, Gorham, and Lacour families.  Augustin died in Pointe Coupee Parish in February 1847; the Pointe Coupee priest who recorded his burial said that Augustin died at "age 58 yrs."

Augustin, fils married first cousin Anne Virginie, called Virginie, daughter of his uncle Joseph Villeneuve LeBlanc, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in December 1842.  They lived near the boundary between West Baton Rouge and Pointe Coupee parishes and near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish.  Their son Henry Clay Eusèbe was born in September 1845, Augustin Jarreau in May 1851 but died at age 1 in April 1852, Valérien Villeneuve was born in Auguste 1857, Joseph Edgar near Plaquemine in March 1862, and Alexandre D.

Alexandre le jeune, by his father's first wife, died in Pointe Coupee Parish in April 1841.  The Pointe Coupee priest who recorded his burial said that Alexandre died at "age 19 yrs.," but he was 21.  He probably did not marry. 

Gustave, by his father's second wife, married Amelia or Milia, daughter of Anglo American John Duncan, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in October 1855.  Their son Anselme Gustave was born near Baton Rouge in April 1856, Joseph Alexander in March 1861 but died at age 3 1/2 in January 1865, and John Duncan was baptized at the Baton Rouge church, age unrecorded, in October 1867.

Octave le jeune married Julie, daughter of French Creole Pascal Vt. Bouis, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in October 1830.  Their son, name unrecorded, was stillborn in Pointe Coupee Parish in August 1836.  Octave le jeune died "at A. Bondy's," Pointe Coupee Parish, in May 1865; the Pointe Coupee priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Octave died at "age 65 years," but he was "only" 61.  Did his family line survive?

2

Joseph, born at New Orleans in June 1760, served as captain and adjutant major of the Louisiana regiment and also was "permanent regidor of the government."  He married Adélaïde Yung or Bernoudy of New Orleans probably in the city by the early 1790s.  Their son Louis-Joseph-Neree was born at New Orleans in May 1797, and Joseph-Terence-Albin in January 1800 

3

Valentin-Valérien, called Valérien, born at New Orleans in November 1762, served as lieutenant in the Louisiana regiment.  He married Marie-Anne, called Nanette, daughter of François Bernoudy, probably at New Orleans in the 1780s.  Their son Valérien, fils was born at New Orleans in November 1788 and baptized at Pointe-Coupée in January 1792, and a son, name unrecorded, died in the city five days after his birth in January 1790.  Either Valérien, père or Valérien, fils died at Pointe Coupée in October 1792; if it was père, he would have been only 29 years old.

7

Valentin-Evariste was Terence's twin. 

8

Youngest son Octave, born at New Orleans in September 1781, served as lieutenant in the New Orleans militia and may have married fellow French Creole Marie Daunoy.  If so, they had a son named Octave, fils, born in New Orleans. 

Octave, fils married cousin Marie Octavie, called Octavie, daughter of his first cousin Joseph Villeneuve LeBlanc, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in September 1844.  Sadly, Octavie died only 4 days after their marriage; she was only 18 years old.  Octave, fils may have died near Baton Rouge in September 1866; the priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names, mention a wife, or give Octave's age at the time of his death.  Did his family line survive? 

.

During the late colonial period, three LeBlancs, two of them from Canada, settled on the western prairies and along the Acadian Coast among their Acadian namesakes already there.  They and many of their descendants married Acadians: 

Descendants of Pierre LEBLANC (c1727-1830)

Pierre, son of Jacob LeBlanc and Marie-Josèphe Ruleau, born probably at Montréal, Canada, in c1727, married Anastasie, daughter of Acadian Jean-Baptiste Damours de Louvière of Rivière St.-Jean, at St.-Jacques on the river in January 1775; Pierre may have been in his late 40s at the time of the wedding.  They moved to the western prairies and may have lived in the Opelousas District during the late 1770s and early 1780s before settling at Île-aux-Cannes on Bayou Teche, near present-day New Iberia.  Their daughter married into the Broussard and Lion families.  Pierre, called by the recording priest a "native of Canada," died "at the home of Raphaël Broussard at ile aux cannes" in March 1830; the St. Martinville priest noted that Pierre died "at age about 103 years."  Only one of Pierre's four sons seems to have created a family line that survived.

1

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste, baptized at Attakapas, age unrecorded, in May 1776, may have died young.

2

Charles, baptized at Opelousas, age unrecorded, in November 1779, may have died young.

Youngest son Louis, born at Attakapas in October 1792, married Aspasie or Anastasie, daughter of Acadian Cosme LeBlanc, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in January 1814.  They settled at Fausse Pointe and at Côte-aux-Puces, or the Flea Coast, near New Iberia.  Their son Louis, fils, called Don Louis, was born in December 1814, a son, name unrecorded, died at age 3 weeks in July 1818, Placide was born in January 1822, Pierre in January 1831, Jean in June 1833, and Joseph Onésime, called Onésime, in September 1836.  Their daughters married into the Broussard, Delcambre, Landry, Leleux, and Martin families, and perhaps into the Leger family as well.  Aspasie's succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse, St. Landry Parish, in August 1850.  Her sons also moved to St. Landry Parish, probably following their parents there. 

4a

Don Louis married Joséphine, daughter of Acadian Édouard Broussard, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in May 1838; the marriage was recorded also in St. Mary Parish; Don Louis's sister Lisemène married Joséphine's brother Frédéric.  Don Louis and Joséphine's son Joseph was born near New Iberia in March 1844, Eusèbe in August 1847, Léon near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in July 1850, Dolse in July 1853, and Raphaël in December 1857. 

4b

Placide married Marguerite, perhaps also called Odile and Adèle, daughter of French Creole Louis Leleux, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in July 1843 (the parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names), and sanctified that marriage at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in August 1845.  Their son Alcide was born near New Iberia, in March 1846.  Placide remarried to cousin Odile, also called Adèle, daughter of Acadian Leufroi Landry, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in May 1848, and sanctified the marriage at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, the following month; Odile's mother, also, was an Acadian LeBlanc.  Their son Alfred was born in St. Landry Parish in September 1855, and Alexis in August 1857.  Strangely, the Opelousas priest or priests who recorded the boys' baptisms called the family Oblanc, not LeBlanc

4c

4d

Jean married Rosalie, perhaps Marie Rosalie, daughter of Acadian Pierre Édouard Blanchard, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in March 1858, and sanctified the marriage at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in March 1860; strangely, the Grand Coteau priest who recorded the marriage called Jean an Oblanc, not a LeBlanc.

4e

Joseph Onésime may have married Carmelite Oblanc, probably an Acadian LeBlanc, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in September 1859, and certainly did marry Amelie or Amelia, daughter of Charles Delcambre, at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in January 1862; Amelie's mother was a Broussard.

2b

Noël, by his father's second wife, married Marguerite, daughter of French Canadian Alexis Istre, at the Church Point church, then in St. Landry but now in Acadia Parish, in July 1869; Marguerite's mother was a Louvière.  Their son Jean Dupré was born near Church Point in October 1868. 

3

Alexandre, baptized at Opelousas, age 2, in September 1801, may have married French Creole Iréné Dotreville in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in March 1838, and remarried to Joséphine, daughter of a Spanish Creole named Garic, Garigues, or Gary, in another civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in August 1839.  Their son Alcide was born near New Iberia, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in May 1843, Joseph near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in March 1846, and Pierre Isabel in November 1848.

4

Youngest son Denis Édouard, called Édouard, born in St. Martin Parish in October 1810, died "at the home of Ursin Bernard" in Lafayette Parish in August 1830.  Édouard was only 19 years old and probably did not marry. 

5

Daughter Célesie gave birth to son Jean Simon, perhaps also called Jean dit David or Durio, a "natural child," in Lafayette Parish in July 1828.  Célesie also had given birth to a "natural dgtr.," Marie Aspasie, who died at age 2 months in April 1826, and to "natural daughter" Basiline in October 1831. 

Jean Simon dit David, Duriau, or Durioz called himself a LeBlanc and married Marie, daughter of Acadian Charles Hébert and widow of Cyprien Leger, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in November 1850.  Their son Alexandre Durioz was born in Lafayette Parish in November 1855, and Eugène in February 1858

Isidore married cousin Marie Telcide, called Telcide, daughter of Acadian Augustin Lanoux, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in May 1852.  Their son Joseph Victor, perhaps called Victor, was born in Ascension Parish in May 1857 but may have died at age 11 1/2 in November 1869, François D. Kenner was born in April 1859, Isidore, fils, a "small infant," died in Jun 1866, and twins Jean René, called René, and Joseph Renaux were born in May 1867 but Joseph died the following October and René died at age 1 in June 1868.

Édouard, born at St.-Jacques in July 1802, died near Convent, St. James Parish, age 9, in September 1811. 

4

Youngest son Élisée, born at St. James in July 1806, also may have died young, unless he was the Mélisé, Mélisée, or Mélizé, also called Mélissère, Élisée, and Élizée, LeBlanc who married Marie Dalferes and settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, probably near the boundary between Ascension and Assumption parishes, by the late 1840s, before moving down bayou; evidently they returned to the upper bayou by the late 1860s.  Their son Damas was born in September 1850 but died at age 1 in September 1851, Joseph François was born in November 1852 but died at age 1 1/2 in September 1854, Joseph Narcisse, called Narcisse, was born near Raceland, Lafourche Parish, in April 1861 but died near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, age 7 1/2, in October 1868, Charles André was born near Lockport, Lafourche Parish, in November 1864, Octave in Ascension Parish in October 1866 but died in Assumption Parish, age 1 1/2, in August 1868, James André was born in Ascension Parish in April 1868 but died in Assumption Parish, age 1 1/2, in July 1869, and Paul Antony was born in November 1870.  Their daughter married into the Landry family at Donaldsonville.

During the early antebellum period, a French-Canadian LeBlanc married an Acadian on the river and settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, but his family line did not survive.  Another French-Canadian LeBlanc settled on the Acadian Coast but may not have married:

François-Xavier, son of André LeBlanc and Charlotte or Marie Catherine Dupont dit Deshotels of St.-Antoine Parish, Montréal, born in c1785, married Marguerite Élisabeth, also called Marie Madeleine, daughter of Acadian François Marie Babin, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1808.  They moved to upper Bayou Lafourche.  François died in Assumption Parish in September 1839; the priest who recorded his burial said that François, "nat. of Canada," died at "age 54 yrs.," but the good father did not bother to give François's parents' names or mention a wife.  One wonders if François and his Acadian wife had any children. 

Victor LeBlanc died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in April 1837.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Victor, "bn. in Canada," died at "age 67."  The good father said nothing about Victor's parents, however, nor did he mention a wife. 

.

During the antebellum period, more LeBlancs, called Foreign French by native Louisianians, emigrated to New Orleans from France and the Caribbean Basin.  One LeBlanc in the New Iberia area actually was an Anglo-American White

John B. LeBlanc, a 31-year-old former soldier from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Otho out of Le Havre, France, in August 1820. 

Benoît LeBlanc, a 28-year-old native of France, "attached to theater," reached New Orleans aboard the ship Ariane out of Le Havre in January 1825. 

J. LeBlanc, a 28-year-old mechanic from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship R. H. Douglass out of Havana, Cuba, in January 1826. 

Claire LeBlanc, widow of Joseph Delabarre, died near Convent, St. James Parish, in November 1827.  The priest who recorded her burial said that she was "age 73 yrs." when she died (which meant she was born in c1754) and "nat. of France," but did not give her parents' names.  One wonders where she was born in France and when she came to Louisiana. 

Josh LeBlanc, a 28-year-old merchant from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Opulence out of Vera Cruz, Mexico, in June 1835. 

Joseph LeBlanc, a 38-year-old grocer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Ann Penhallon out of Bordeaux, France, in January 1838. 

Mme. LeBlanc, a 25-year-old native of France, occupation unrecorded, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Ville de Bordeaux out of Bordeaux in November 1838.  With her was a child, age and gender unrecorded. 

N. LeBlanc, a turner from France, age unrecorded, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Therese Louise out of Vera Cruz in January 1839. 

Jules LeBlanc, a 25-year-old merchant from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Columbiana out of Le Havre in March 1843. 

Eusèb LeBlanc, a 22-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Ancona out of Le Havre in October 1847. 

According to a history of Iberia Parish, "Asiatic cholera struck several plantation along the Teche in 1848.  One of these places was the plantation of Mrs. Dubuclet.  When the manager of the plantation, Simonette LeBlanc, noticed the disease among the slaves, he tried to escape the plague by going to Lake Simonette.  The plague, however, struck his family after he was at Lake Simonette.  When Dr. Wells went to care for the family, the doctor contracted the disease."  A footnote reads:  "After Simon White, a northerner, settled here [in Iberia Parish] and married an Acadian[,] his name was translated to LeBlanc.  Lake Simonette near Jefferson Island bears the name of his son, Simonette."  Lake Simonette is today's Lake Peigneur, where Antoine-Alexandre LeBlanc, an Acadian from St. James Parish on the river, settled during the early antebellum period. 

Whilheim LeBlanc, a 25-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Moselle out of Le Havre in July 1848.  Also aboard that ship was Agnaise LeBlanc, a 30-year-old farmer from France, who may have been Whilheim's wife or sister. 

_____ LeBlanc, a 24-year-old merchant from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Nerée out of Marseille, France, in March 1849.  With him was his 23-year-old wife, her first name also unrecorded. 

Usile LeBlanc, a 25-year-old native of France, occupation unrecorded, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Buena Vista out of Le Havre in December 1849.  On the same ship was Cécile LeBlanc, age 25, probably Usile's wife.

Some LeBlancs who lived in South Louisiana during the antebellum and post-war periods came from the family's participation in the South's peculiar institution, but not all Afro-Creole LeBlancs were slaves and freedmen.  At least one of them, living in Lafayette Parish during the late antebellum period, was an homme de couleur libre or free man of color:

Terence, son of Mary, "slave of Mr. Étienne Mathurin LeBlanc," was baptized at the Raceland church, Lafourche Parish, age 7 months, in October 1854. 

Alexandre, son of Rose, "slave of Mr. LeBlanc," was born near Raceland, Lafourche Parish, in December 1859.  Which Mr. LeBlanc owned Rose?

St. Ville LeBlanc, free man of color, married Marie Jean Louis, free woman of color, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in September 1862.  Their son Ambroise was born in Lafayette Parish in November 1864. 

Marie Azéma LeBlanc, "slave," daughter of Marie Chinese, "belonging to the wid. A. LeBlanc," was born in Terrebonne Parish in August 1864. 

Pierre LeBlanc, freedman, married Élodie Bourque, freedwoman, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in June 1866.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

A succession record for Paulin LeBland, a freedman, was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, in May 1868. 

Victor LeBlanc, freedman, son of Catherine Pierre, married Eméritha or Merida Broussard, freedwoman, daughter of Clarisse Mathias, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in January 1869. 

.

Descendants of Charles LEBLANC (?-)

Charles LeBlanc married Lucide Suky.  The "family" name of Charles's wife, as well as the surname of a son's mother-in-law, hints strongly that this family was Afro Creole. 

1

Antoine married Azéma, daughter of Charles Padilleaud, also called Padiot, and Marie Louise Sinigal, probably Senegal, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1870, three days before his brother Don Louis married at the same church.

Don Louis married Irma, daughter of Antoine Delafosse, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1870, three days after his brother Antoine married at the same church. 

CONCLUSION

LeBlancs were among the first families of Acadia (according to Acadian genealogist Stephen A. White, himself a LeBlanc descendant, they became, in fact, the largest family in greater Acadia), and they were some of the earliest Acadians to find refuge in Louisiana.  The first of them came to the colony in February 1765 with the Broussard dit Beausoleil party from Halifax via Cap-Français, St.-Domingue.  They followed the Broussards to the Bayou Teche valley and remained there.  Later that year, even more LeBlancs from the prison compounds of Nova Scotia came to Louisiana.  They settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques on what soon became known as the Acadian Coast.  Dozens of LeBlancs came to the colony from Maryland in the late 1760s, and they, too, settled on the Acadian Coast, at Cabanocé and St.-Gabriel d'Iberville.  A few of their sons joined their cousins on the western prairies later in the colonial period, but the great majority of the Maryland exiles remained on the Acadian Coast and settled in what became St. James, Ascension, Iberville, and West Baton Rouge parishes.  Even more LeBlancs came to Louisiana in 1785.  Some of these refugees from France joined their cousins on the river, but most of them settled on upper Bayou Lafourche, which became a third center of family settlement.  During the late colonial period and continuing well into the antebellum years, LeBlancs migrated from the river parishes to the upper Lafourche and added substantially to the family lines already there.  During the antebellum period, a few LeBlancs from upper Bayou Lafourche reversed the usual Acadian migration pattern and "returned" to the old Acadian Coast, while others drifted down bayou into Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes.  Meanwhile, on the western prairies, LeBlancs spread out from their base along Bayou Teche and settled in what became St. Martin, St. Mary, Lafayette, St. Landry, Vermilion, and Iberia parishes.  During the late antebellum and immediate post-war periods, LeBlancs from the river and the Lafourche/Terrebonne valley moved to the lower Atchafalaya, to Bayou Teche, and even out to the St. Landry prairies.  But, despite all this moving about, the old Acadian Coast, especially Ascension Parish, remained the largest center of family settlement. 

Non-Acadian LeBlancs came to Louisiana as early as the 1720s.  Some of them were colonial officials, most of them remained at New Orleans, and, until 1775, none of them married Acadians.  A young naval officer from southeastern France with the aristocratic surname LeBlanc de Villeneuve, married a local girl and fathered at least eight sons.  His oldest son moved to Pointe Coupée and established a prominent family there and in the Baton Rouge area; his other sons remained at New Orleans.  Like their father, the LeBlanc de Villeneuve sons served as officers in the Louisiana regiment, under Spain; they also served as officers in the colonial militia.  During the late colonial and early antebellum periods, two non-Acadian LeBlancs, one of them probably a French Creole, the other a French Canadian, settled among their Acadian namesakes on the western prairies, and two more French-Canadian LeBlancs settled on the Acadian Coast.  One of the French Canadians on the river moved to upper Bayou Lafourche later in the antebellum period, but his line did not survive there.  Living in predominantly-Acadian communities, most of these relative late-comers did marry Acadians.  Throughout the antebellum period, Foreign-French LeBlancs emigrated to Louisiana from France and the Caribbean Basin; most of them remained in the New Orleans area.  At least one non-Acadian LeBlanc living in Lafayette Parish during the late antebellum period was a free man of color. 

Despite the impressive numbers of non-Acadian LeBlancs who settled in South Louisiana, the great majority of LeBlancs in the Bayou State are Acadians.  In fact, no Acadian family other than the Landrys brought more individuals to Louisiana than the LeBlancs.  By the late antebellum period, the descendants of Daniel LeBlanc emulated their Acadian forebears by settling in nearly every community of South Louisiana.  ...

The family's name also is spelled Leblance and Oblanc.

Francois ROGER, Sr., lists her children, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 58.  

The age given in her burial record is exactly a decade off--she died at age 45. 

02.  Wall of Names, 21(pl. 4R), calls him André LE BLANC, & lists him singly.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 161.

What happened to him in LA?  Who were his parents?  Who were the boy & girl listed with him at Cabanocé in Apr 1766?  Was he married?  A widower?  Were they his children, siblings, or young cousins?  Was he even Acadian? 

03.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him André [LE BLANC], & lists him with his parents 5 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 556-67, Family No. 629, his birth/baptismal record, calls him André-Marie LEBLANC, gives his parents' names, says he was godson of Jean-Baptiste TRAHAN & Geneviève LEBLANC, & that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 66-67, Family No. 134, calls him André [LEBLANC], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 112-13, Family No. 207, calls him André [LEBLANC], gives his parents' names, & details his 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 André, son [Charles LEBLANC's] fils, journalier, age 18, on the embarkation list, & André LEBLANC, his [Charles LEBLANC's] son, day laborer, age 18, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 53rd Family with his parents & 5 siblings; BRDR, 2:369, 459 (ASM-2, 4), his marriage record, calls him Andrés LE BLANC, calls his wife Maria-Luisa HÉBERT, gives his & her  parents' names, says his parents were "of St.-Malo, France," that her parents were "of Poitou, France," that her father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Pedro LANDRY & Ambrosio LANDRY; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:229 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #481), his death/burial record, calls him André Marie LEBLANC m. Maxie PITRE, says he died "at age 82 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501.

Looking at his burial record, one wonders if he remarried to a Maxie PITRE (sounds masculine), or if this simply was a corruption of his wife Marie-Louise's name.  Her mother was a VALET, so that was not part of it.  An André LE BLANC married French Creole Mélanie LABICHE on upper Bayou Lafourche by the mid-1810s, when André Marie would have been in his late 40s or early 50s.  They had at least 2 sons.  Was this him?

Were André & his first wife that rare Acadian couple who had no children? 

First wife Marie-Louise was born at Archigny, France, in Poitou, in Sep 1775, when her family was part of the Acadian settlement there.  André's family also went to Poitou &, like her family, did not remain there.  They were, in fact, in the same convoy that left Châtellerault for Nantes in Dec 1775.  They may have known one another while growing up in Nantes, but they took different ships to LA. 

04.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Anne LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:263, 460 (SJA-1, 42a), her marriage record, calls her Anne LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says all parents were "Acadian by nationality," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Honoré TRAHAN & Simon LEBLANC; BRDR, 5(rev.):384 (ASM-3, 217), her death/burial record, calls her Anne LEBLANC, "age 84 yrs., widow of Jean DUON (DUHON)," says she "d. day before yesterday at 7 p.m.," but does not give her parents' names.   

05.  Wall of Names, 14, calls her Anne LE BLANC; BRDR, 3:529 (ASC-4, 106), her death/burial record, calls her Anne LEBLANC, "age 81, nat. of Acadia, wid. of Joseph BUJOL," does not give her parents' names, & says she died "at the home of her son-in-law, Joseph LANDRY."

06.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Anne LE BLANC.

Evidence that a Jean-Athanase LANDRY of St.-Gabriel married an Anne LEBLANC of St.-Gabriel in the late 1760s or early 1770s is in the baptismal record of Geneviève LANDRY, dated 17 Apr 1774, in BRDR, 2:426 (SGA-4a, 7), & the baptismal record of Jean-Nicolas LANDRY, dated 24 Sep 1775, in BRDR, 2:428 (ASC-1, 33), which call the parents Jean LANDRY & Anne/Anne-Marin LEBLANC, & the marriage record of Jean-Nicolas LANDRY, dated 26 Apr 1802, in BRDR, 2:432 (ASC-2, 96), which calls the groom's parents Juan LANDRY & Anna LEBLANC.  Thru the process of elimination, I believe that this Anne LEBLANC is the one who married Jean-Athanase, son of Jean-Baptiste LANDRY.  See also De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 12. 

07.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Anne LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:460, 609-10 (SJO-3, 16), her marriage record, calls her Anne LE BLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, does not give her husband's first wife's name, & gives no witnesses to her marriage; BRDR, 3:529 (SGA-11, 310), her baptismal recertification, calls her Anne LEBLANC, "bn. at Baltimore, Maryland," gives her parents' names, says she was baptized 21 Feb 1766 in Maryland, that her godparents were Pierre FORET & Rose LEBLANC, & that "On 29 Jan. 1819, signed affidavits were given to Father DESAINTPIERRE by Jean Baptiste BABIN, Alexander LANDRY and Moïse BABIN, elderly residents, which stated that they knew personally the father and mother of Anne LEBLANC, she was the legitimate daughter, another certificate of baptism was thereby issued to Anne LEBLANC by Father DESAINTPIERRE."

Who was Moïse BABIN.  When did he come to LA? 

08.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls her Anne [LE BLANC], & lists her with her parents & 2 brothers; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 287; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 4-5, calls her Anne, sa [Simon LEBLANC's] fille, age 15, on the embarkation list, Ana, su [Simon LEBLANC's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Anne LEBLANC, his [Simon LEBLANC's] daughter, age 15, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 7th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents & 2 brothers; BRDR, 2:424, 477 (ASM-2, 15), the record of her first marriage, calls her Mariana LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names & his first wife's name, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Grégoire LEBLANC & Jacques BABIN; BRDR, 3:547, 557 (ASC-2, 202), the record of her second marriage, calls her Marianne LEBLANC, "wid. Firmin LANDRY, nat. Belle Isle in Mer, France," calls her husband Simon Silvain LEBLANC, "nat. Baltimore, widower Élizabeth GAUDIN, give her & his parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Jean BUJOL, Éloi MELANÇON, & Augustin LANDRY; BRDR, 5(rev.):400 (ASC-4, 231), probably her death/burial record, calls her Mrs. Simon LEBLANC, "age 60 yrs," but does not give her first & middle names or her parents' names.

The 1763 British report in MD, the 1770 & 1777 censuses at Ascension, & her marriage record call her Rose, as do all of the birth/baptismal records of her children in BRDR, 2:253-61 & her burial record.  Only the Cabanocé census of 1769 calls her Anne, favored by Wall of Names.  So was her name Anne-Rose or Rose-Anne?

10.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Anselme LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2542, calls him Anselme LEBLANC, says he was born in 1763 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, says he married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Éphrem BABIN & Marguerite LEBLANC at Ascension on 27 Dec 1784, but lists no children; BRDR, 2:460 (ASC-4, 24), his death/burial record, calls him Anselmo LEBLANC, but does not give his parents' names, his age at the time of his death, or mention a wife. 

Where did Arsenault find his marriage record?

11.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Apolline-Eulalie [LE BLANC], & lists her with her mother & sister; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, calls her Apoline-Eulalie, sa [Marie AU COING, femme de Michel LEBLANC's] fille, age 13, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Appoline-Eulalie LEBLANC, age 13, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 4th Family aboard La Bergère with her mother & sister.  

What happened to her in LA?

12.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls her Barbe [LE BLANC], & lists her with her parents & 5 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 556-57, Family No. 629, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Barbe-Anne LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, says she was goddaughter of Julien ABUSET & Anne TARIVET, & that her family resided at St.-Servan from 1762-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 66-67, Family No. 134, calls her Barbe [LEBLANC], & details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 112-13, Family No. 207, calls her Barbe [LEBLANC], & details her 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 Barbe, sa [Charles LEBLANC's] fille, age 12, on the embarkation list, & Barbe LEBLANC, his [Charles LEBLANC's] daughter, age 12, on the complete listing, says she was in the 53rd Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her parents & 5 siblings, & that she was born in 1772 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:371-72, 461 (ASM-2, 15), her marriage record, calls her Barbara LE BLANC, gives her & her husband's parents'  names, says both sets of parents were from St.-Malo, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Ambrosio HÉBERT & Josef ROBICHEAUX; Hébert, South LA Records, 3:313 (Houma Ct.Hse.: Succ. #395), petition for her succession inventory, calls her Anne Barbe LEBLANC, says she died on 18 Jan 1858 but gives no place of death, says her husband Olivier HÉBERT was deceased, & lists only 1 child, Martino [HÉBERT].  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501.

Her husband died on upper Bayou Lafourche in the late 1790s, & she did not remarry.  She evidently followed her children down bayou to Lafourche Interior and Terrebonne parishes. 

She was one of the last Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

13.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Benjamin LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:55, 461 (ASC-2, 33), his marriage record, calls him Benjamin LEBLANC, gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Isaac LEBLANC, Simon LEBLANC, & Firmin LANDRY; BRDR, 3:530 (ASC-4, 53), his death/burial record, calls him Benjamin LEBLANC, but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.   

14.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls her Bibianne LE BLANC, & list her with her husband & a daughter; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 161, Family No. 290, calls her Bibianne LEBLANC, says she was born c1745 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, says she married her husband c1770 but gives no place of marriage, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Félix TRAHAN, baptized 18 Mar 1766, St.-Nicolas, Nantes, daughter Rosalie-Bibianne TRAHAN, baptized 3 Mar 1778, St.-Martin, Chantenay, died 9 Jul 1778, probably St.-Martin, Chantenay, son Jacques-Augustin TRAHAN, baptized 15 May 1779, St.-Martin, Chantenay, died 1 Sep 1779, probably St.-Martin, Chantenay, & son Pierre TRAHAN, died age 8 & buried 20 Feb 1784, St.-Martin, 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., Acadians in Exile, 282, 420, her marriage record, calls her Bibienne LEBLANC, 20 yrs. old, give her & her husband's parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of the marriage, & does not list the witnesses to her marriage; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls her Bibianne LEBLANC, sa [Augustin TRAHAN's] feme, age 40, on the embarkation list, & Vivianne LEBLANC, his [Augustin TRAHAN's] wife, age 40, on the complete listing, says she was in the 20th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her husband & a daughter, & details her marriage, including her & her husband's parents' names, but does not give the place of marriage.

15.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls her Blanche [LE BLANC], & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exiles, 568; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 68, Family No. 137; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 116-17, Family No. 214; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Blanche, sa [Joseph LEBLANC's] fille, age 19, on the embarkation list, Blanca, su [Joef LEBLANC's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Blanche LEBLANC, his [Joseph LEBLANC's] daughter, age 19, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 1st Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents, 3 siblings, & widowed step-grandmother; BRDR, 2:468, 474, (SGA-14, 8), her marriage record, calls her Margarite LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says her parents were "of Plausan Parish, Trique, France," & his were "of Lyon, France," but gives no witnesses to her marriage; BRDR, 2:473 (SGA-8, 23, #124), her death/burial record, calls her Margarita LEBLANC, "age 30 years," gives his parents' names, says they were "of Acadia," but mentions no husband. 

She & her husband had sailed to LA on the same ship.  They probably had known one another since their childhood on Belle-Île-en-Mer.

16.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Bonaventure LE BLANC; BRDR, 3:531 (SGA-8, 53), his death/burial record, calls him Bonaventure LEBLANC, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 158; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 3.

Who were his parents?  We must wait for White, DGFA-2 for the answer. 

His estimated birth year is from the age given in the Spanish report of 1767, not the St.-Gabriel census of 1777.

17.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Catherine LE BLANC; BRDR, 10:353 (SMI-4, 40), her corrected death/burial record, calls her Cahterine LEBLANC, "native of Acadia, wife of decd. Pierre LANOUX," but does not give her parents' names or her age at the time of her death.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156. 

18.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 10L), calls him Charles  LE BLANC, & lists him with his second wife & a daughter, 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]; White, DGFA-1, 1006, calls him Charles LE BLANC, jumeau [of brother Francois], says he was born in 1717 at St.-Charles-des-Mines, details his marriages, including his wives' parents' names, says he married his first wife 27 Sep 1745, gives his second wife's first husband's name, details his repatriation from Southampton, England, to France in 1763, his arrival at St.-Malo in 1763, his presence at St.-Malo in 1772, & his voyage to LA in 1785; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 554-55, Family No. 628, calls him Charles LEBLANC, says he was born in c1717 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, details his first marriage, says his first wife was born in c1721 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, says he married his first wife 27 Sep 1745 at St.-Charles-des-Mines, Acadie, that she died in Aug 1756 at Southampton, England, details his second marriage, says his second wife was born in c1722 but gives no birthplace nor her parents' names, says she was widow of Pierre DAIGLE, that they married in c1758 in Southampton, England, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Madeleine by his first wife, born in c1746 but gives no birthplace, daughter Marie by his first wife, born in c1749 but gives no birthplace, son Charles by his first wife, born in c1755 but gives no birthplace, drowned at Pont-Nicau 28 May 1770, age about 15 years, buried same day, Pont-Nicau, St.-Enogat, son Joseph by his second wife, born in c1759 but gives no birthplace, son Jean-Baptiste by his second wife, born in c1760 but gives no birthplace, died 3 Mar 1768, age 8, buried 4 Mar 1768, St.-Servan, son Simon by his second wife, born 27 Oct 1761, England, died 10 Nov 1771, buried 21 Nov 1771, St.-Servan, daughter Françoise by his second wife, born 24 Oct 1763, St.-Servan, goddaughter of François MICHEL & Madeleine LEBLANC, & daughter Marguerite-Geneviève by his second wife, born 11 Sep 1765, baptized 12 Sep 1765, St.-Servan, goddaughter of Simon LANDRY & Marguerite BOUDROT, says that he, his second wife, daughters Madeleine & Marie, sons Charles, Joseph, Jean-Baptiste, & Simon, & stepchildren Jean DAIGLE, Rose DAIGLE, & Paul DAIGLE "disembarked at St.-Malo from England on May 22, 1763 from the ship, L'Ambition," & that the family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 111-12, Family No. 206, calls him Charles LEBLANC, says he was born in 1717 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, says he was a carpenter, details his first marriage, says his first wife was born in c1721 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, says he married his first wife 27 Sep 1747 at Grand-Pré, that she died in Aug 1756 at Southampton, England, details his second marriage, says his second wife was born in c1722, gives his parents' names, says he married his second wife in 1758 in Southampton, England, includes the birth/baptismal & marriage records of daughter Madeleine by his first wife, born in 1746 but gives no birthplace, that she married first to Charles AUCOIN 11 Nov 1776, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, while a resident of the Parish of Ste.-Croix  "sur-les-ponts," that she married second to François MANCEL, 23 Sep 1783, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & daughter Marie by his first wife, born in 1749 "in the Parish of Saint-Charles in Acadie," married Charles-Benoist GRANGER, 5 Sep 1780. 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 him Charles LEBLANC, journalier, age 67, on the embarkation list, & Charles LEBLANC, day laborer, age 67, on the complete listing, says he was in the 4th 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 his second wife & a daughter, & details his second marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names, & says he & his second wife were married in 1758 but gives no place of marriage.  

None of his older surviving children emigrated to LA.  The only "child" that he & his second wife brought to the colony, daughter Marguerite-Geneviève, married at New Orleans less than 2 months after they reached the city & followed her husband to San Bernardo, below New Orleans.  One of his younger brothers, however, Joseph dit Jambo of Le Bon Papa, came to LA in 1785. 

What happened to him in LA?  Considering their ages, did he & his second wife even survive the crossing from France?  Unfortunately, the debarkation list for Le St.-Rémi did not survive.  The New Orleans priest who recorded his daughter Marguerite-Geneviève's marriage on 4 Dec 1785 did not say that her parents were deceased, so this may be a clue that he & his wife survived the crossing from France, or just a case of slipshod record keeping.  See NOAR, 4:186 (SLC, M5, 42).

Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 526-27, a Jul 1788 Spanish report on "amounts of rice and corn distributed to the Acadian families living in the district of Baton Rouge who lost their crops during the Mississippi flood," Baton Rouge, lists 2 Charles LEBLANCs on p. 526, to wit:  Carlos LEBLANC, unnamed wife, 2 unnamed children, 4 1/2 units corn, 1/4 unit rice, & Carlos LEBLAN, unnamed wife, 3 unnamed children, 3 units corn, 1/2 unit rice.  Considering the ages of Charles LEBLANC & Marie-Madeleine GAUTREAUX, & the fact that their only "child" married soon after reaching the colony & settled with her husband at San Bernardo, below the city, this is probably not him.  The other Charles LEBLANC who came to LA in 1785 was counted at Lafourche in Jan 1788 & had 6 children then, not 2 or 3.  A Charles, son of Thomas & Pérrine LE BLANC, "natives of Pennsylvania," married Geneviève, daughter of Jacques & Marie-Louise FAYAR or FAYARD, "natives of this parish," on 1 Sep 1783 at New Orleans.  See NOAR, 3:125, 185 (SLC, M4, 155).  This may have been the Charles LEBLANC at Baton Rouge in Jul 1788.  

19.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Charles LE BLANC, & lists him with his second wife & 6 children; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Tamerlan.htm>, Family No. 10, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, both he & his first wife, age 21, survived the crossing, & they had no children;

Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 66-67, Family No. 134, calls him Charles LEBLANC, details his birth, gives his parents' names, details his first marriage but does not give his first wife's parents' names, says he & his first wife were married in c1758 but gives no place of marriage, says she died age 30 on 13 Sep 1761 & was buried next day, Châteauneuf, details his second marriage, including his second wife's parents' names, says his second wife was born in c1745 but gives no birthplace, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial record of son Jean-Baptiste from his second wife, baptized 18 Jun 1774, St.-Jean-L'Evangeliste, Châtellerault, godson of Augustin TRAHAN & Anne TRAHAN, died age 1 mo. & buried 15 Jul 1774, St.-Jean-L'Evangeliste, Châtellerault, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 112-13, Family No. 207, calls him Charles LEBLANC, says he was born in 1734 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, says he was a sawyer, details his first marriage but does not give his first wife's parents' names, says he & his first wife were married in c1758 but gives no place of marriage, says she died at Châteauneuf but gives no date of death/burial, details his second marriage, including his second wife's parents' names, says his second wife was born in c1745 but gives no birthplace, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Rosalie-Geneviève from his second wife, baptized 21 Feb 1776, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, died age 18 mos. & buried 24 Aug 1777, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, daughter Marie-Appoline from his second wife, baptized 18 Oct 1777, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, died 14 Dec 1777, probably Nantes, son Louis-René from his second wife, baptized 30 Apr 1779, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, died age 29 mos. & buried 25 Sep 1781, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, daughter Rosalie from his second wife, baptized 12 Jan 1782, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, died age 10 mos. & buried 20 Oct 1782, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, & son Jean-Baptiste from his second wife, baptized 8 Oct 1784, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785;

Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 118. 

He & his first wife probably married on one of the Maritime islands before the British deported them to France in 1758.  

Robichaux's studies of the Acadians in France reveal that Charles LEBLANC fathered at least 13 children in France, 1 by his first wife & 12 by his second wife, & that 6 of them died there.  He took 6 children to LA in 1785.  Oldest son Charles-Jean/Jean-Charles was 14 when the family retreated from Poitou to Nantes in Dec 1775 & would have been 24 in 1785.  He may have married & chose to stay in France, or he may have died while the family resided at Nantes, but Robichaux did not find his burial record.

23.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Desiré LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2537, calls him Désiré LEBLANC, says he was born in 1717 but gives no birthplace, that he vraisemblablement [probably] was son of Jean LEBLANC & Jeanne BOURGEOIS of Grand-Pré, says he married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Jean LANDRY & Claire LEBLANC, in c1740 but gives no place of marriage, says his family was deported to Oxford, MD, in 1755, that he was counted there in 1763, that he occupied lot number 73 on the west bank of the Mississippi at St.-Jacques in 1769, & lists his children as Simon, born in 1741, Madeleine in 1742, Isaac in 1746, Marie-Marthe in 1748, Jérôme in 1749, Désiré in 1753, Anne-Marine in 1755, Osite in 1758, Élizabeth in 1759, Benjamin in 1760, Anselme in 1763, & Grégoire in 1769, but gives no birthplaces; White, DGFA-1, 1009, calls him Désiré LEBLANC, says his parents were René LEBLANC & his first wife Élisabeth or Isabelle MELANSON, that he was born in c1717 but gives no birthplace, that he married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Abraham LANDRY & Marie GUILBEAU in c1740 but gives no place of marriage, places him at Oxford, MD in 1763, Cabahannocer in 1769, age 52, & Ascension in 1770, age 53, & says he died at Ascension on 5 Mar 1777 but gives no age; BRDR, 2:463 (ASC-1, 176i), his death/burial record, calls him Désiré LEBLANC, "married male," but does not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of his death.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 175; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 3.

Désiré's father was the famous notary of Grand-Pré who fathered 22 children by 2 wives, died in Philadelphia during the Exile in Feb 1758, in his late 70s, & appears in Longfellow's Evangeline (Part the First, III) as a character. 

The ages given for him in the censuses of 1769 & 1770 are consistent & give him an estimated birth year of c1717, so he would have been 60 years old at the time of his death.  The Ascension priest calling him simply "married male" in his burial record was an insult to an man with such a successful progeny.  No other LE BLANC created a larger family line in LA than this "married male" from Grand-Pré.

Note that Arsenault gets Désiré's wife's parents' names wrong.  And Arsenault would have us believe that Désiré was an older brother of Claude, but he was not.  Needless to say, I follow White here. 

24.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Désiré LE BLANC. 

What happened to him in LA?

25.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Isabelle LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:429, 464 (ASC-1, 130), her marriage record, calls her Élisabeth LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says both sets of parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Pierre LANDRY & Augustin BIJEAUS; BRDR, 2:485 (ASC-1, 176), perhaps her death/burial record, calls her Ysabel LEBLANC, "married," but does not give her parents' names or her husband's name. 

26.  Wall of Names, 30 (pl. 7R), calls her Élisabeth LE BLANC, & lists her with her husband & 6 children; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 167, Family No. 199, calls her Élisabeth called Maillet LEBLANC; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 35, Family No. 65; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 18-19, calls her Élisabette LEBLANC, sa [Honoré PRAUD's] femme, age 45, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Élizabeth LEBLANC, his [Honoré BRAUD's] wife, age 45, on the complete listing, says she was in the 36th Family aboard La Bergère with her husband & 6 children, details her marriage, including her & her husband's parents' names but does not give the place of marriage, & says daughter Olive-Élizabeth BRAUD was born in 1769 but gives no birth place; BRDR, 3:534 (SGA-8, 43), her death/burial record, calls her Élizabeth LEBLANC, "age 60, spouse of Honoré BREAU," but does not give her parents' names.

Her birth date & her dite, which comes from her stepfather's surname, are from Robichaux, cited above.  Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 167, calls the church in which she was baptized "Ste. Anne of Beaubassin."  Close.  Ste.-Anne was at nearby Tintamarre, Chignecto.  When did she & her family move from Minas to Chignecto to one of the Maritime islands?  Late 1740s?  1750s?  Her father died between 1745 & 1751, so it may have been during that period.  See White, DGFA-1, 1013.  Was she on one of the islands when the British rounded up the Acadians at Chignecto in the fall of 1755, or did she escape the British roundup & find refuge on one of the islands later in the year?  She would have been only 13 years old in 1755. 

Needless to say, her husband was not the Honoré BREAU who, along with brother Alexis, defied Spanish Governor ULLOA in 1768. 

27.  Wall of Names, 30 (pl. 7R), calls her Élisabeth LE BLANC, & lists her with her husband & 2 children; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 561-62, Family No. 633; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 825, her marriage record, calls her Élisabeth LE BLANC, says she was 15 at the time of her marriage & native of "Île Saint Jean in [the diocese of] Québec and resident of this parish" [Plelo], gives her parents' names, says her mother was deceased at the time of her marriage, calls her husband Louis François LE TOLLIEREC, gives his parents' names, says they were from "this parish," that his mother was deceased at the time of the marriage, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph DURAND, Pierre MOREAU, René GALAIS, Julien LE TOLLIEREC (his father), none of whom signed; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 20-21, calls her Élisabette LEBLANC, sa [Louis LE TOLLIERET's] femme, age 29, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Élizabeth LEBLANC, his [Louis LETULLIER's] wife, age 29, on the complete listing, says she was in the 41st Family aboard La Bergère with her husband, a woodworker, age 41, son Henry-Aimable LETULLIER, age 1, & daughter Marie-Adélaïde LETULLIER, age 4, details her marriage, including the names of her & her husband's parents but gives no place of marriage, says daughter Marie-Adélaïde [LE TOLLIERT/LETULLIER] was born in 1774 but gives no birthplace, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to her & her family after they reached LA.  

Wall of Names, 30, 39, spells her husband's surname LETOLLIERE, TOLLIERE, TULLIE. 

28.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls her Élisabeth LE BLANC, & lists her with her husband Joseph CAILLOUET & son Jacques [CAILLOUET]; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 119-20, Family No. 219, calls her Élizabeth LEBLANC, says she was born c1753 at L'Assomption, Pigiguit, says her father was born in 1715 but gives no birthplace, that he was son of Jean LEBLANC & Jeanne BOURGEOIS & died in 1767 at Boulogne-sur-Mer, says her mother was born c1713 but gives no birthplace, that she was daughter of Charles GAUTROT & Madeleine RICHARD & died at age 63 & was buried 30 Jul 1779 at St.-Martin, Chantenay, details her marriage to Joseph CAILLOUET but does not give his parents' names, says she was "resident of the Parish of Saint-Martin of Chantenay for many years" before her marriage, & details her participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s before her marriage; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 39, Family No. 76, calls her Élizabeth LEBLANC, says she was born c1753 at L'Assomption, Pigiguit, gives her parents' names, says she was "resident for many years in the Parish of Saint-Martin of Chantenay," calls her husband Joseph CAILLOUET, says he was born c1754 "at Cap Saint-Ignace in Acadie," was a carpenter & resident "since 5 years [before their marriage] in the Parish of Saint-Martin of Chantenay," gives his parents' names, details their marriage, includes the birth/baptismal record of son Jacques CAILLOUET, baptized 21 Jan 1785, St.-Martin, Chantenay, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 208, her marriage record, calls her Élizabeth LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, says she was a major daughter & that both of her parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, says she was "native of the parish of L'Assomption in Accadie, diocese of Québec and resident of this parish [St.-Martin, Chantenay] for many years," calls her husband Joseph CAILLOUETTE, says he was major son of Joseph CAILLOUETTE & Marie METOT, "native of Cap Saint Ignace in Accadie [sic] and resident of this parish for five years," & says the witnesses to her marriage were Claude LEBLANC, "uncle of the bride" [who did not sign], Augustin TRAHAN, "bother-in-law of the bride" [who did not sign], Félix BOUDERAU, "uncle of the bride" [who did not sign], Jean LEJEUNE, "first cousin of the bride" [who signed], Joseph CAILLOUTE [the groom, who signed], Élizabeth LEBLANS [the bride, who signed], & Jacques BOULLIER [who signed]; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 38-39, calls her Élisabeth LEBLANC, sa [Joseph CAILLOUET's] femme, age 32, Ysabel LEBLANC, su [Josef CALLOIT's] muger, on the debarkation list, & Élizabeth LEBLANC, his [Joseph CAILLOUET's] wife, age 32, on the complete listing, says she was in the 39th Family aboard Le Beaumont with her husband Joseph CAILLOUET, a carpenter, age 31, & son Jacques CAILLOUET, a nursling, & details her marriage, including her & her husband's parents' names but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 3:538 (SMI-8, 28), her death/burial record, calls her Isabelle LEBLANC, "age 60, wid. Joseph CAILLOUET," but does not give her parents' names or the exact date of her burial.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 511, 528.

Her journey to France via VA & England in 1755, 1756, & 1763 is based on the observation that it was the route usually taken by Acadians from Pigiguit who did not escape to the Maritime islands & go to France from Île St.-Jean or Île Royale in late 1758.

Cap St.-Ignace is in Québec, not "Accadie," so her husband was a Canadian, not an Acadian.  What was a Canadian carpenter doing in France in 1784?   Did he go to France with his parents, or did he go alone?  His marriage record does not say that his parents were deceased at the time, so they may have been still alive in 1784.  But it does not say that they lived in France; they may still have been living in Canada.  If so, how would he have known if they were still alive?  His parents' names also can be found in the birth/baptismal record of daughter Rosa CAILLOUET, dated 17 Apr 1796, in BRDR, 2:171 (SJA-3, 135).  His surname in LA is also spelled CAILLOITE, CAILLOUITE, CAYO, & CAYUSET.  How is it pronounced?  kah-YOH?  kal-oh-WAY?  The mayor of the city of Thibodaux & a professor at ULL bear this surname.  They probably are descendants of Joseph & Élisabeth.

29.  Wall of Names, 11, calls her Esther LE BLANC.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 158; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 430; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 4.

30.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Esther LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:464, 635 (SGA-4a, 24), the record of her first marriage, calls her Esther LEBLANC, calls her husband Théodore RIVETTE, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Francois RIVET & Jean-Baptiste ALLAIN; BRDR, 2:464, 505 (SGA-14, 20, #70), the record of her third marriage, calls her Ester LEBLANC, widow of Simon GODAU, calls her husband Pedro LONGUÉPÉE, gives her & his parents' names, says his parents were "of San Malo, Province of Brittany, France," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Bonaventure LEBLANC [her father] & Antoine ALVAREZ; BRDR, 2:249, 464 (SGA-14, 31), the record of her fourth marriage, calls her Ester LEBLANC, widow of Pierre LONGUÉPÉE, calls her husband Guillaume-Germain DOBOIS, gives her & his parents' names, says her mother was deceased at the time of the wedding, that his parents were "of Briquebet in Normandy, res. Baton Rouge," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Pierre DUPLESI & Senateur BABIN; BRDR, 4:349 (SGA-8, 97), her death/burial record, calls her Esther LEBLANC, "age 58, wid. Guillaume Germain DUBOI," but does not give her parents' names. 

Her birth place is from the birth/baptismal record of son Simon-Pierre LONGUÉPÉE, dated 4 May 1800, in BRDR, 2:505-06 (SGA-11, 98). 

Her marriage to Simon GOUDEAU is verified in the record of her marriage to Pierre LONGUÉPÉE, cited above.  No other Acadian of the first generation in LA married more often than this lady, & she outlived all 4 of her husbands!

31.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Étienne LE BLANC; BRDR, 1a(rev.):30, his marriage record, calls him Éstienne LEBLANC, age ca 20, says his wife was age ca 23, gives his & her parents' names, says that he & his wife signed the marriage document with an x, that the witnesses to his marriage were Claude BOUDROT, who signed with an x, Jean TÉRRIOT, who signed his name, Jacques TÉRRIOT, who signed his name, & Joseph BOUDROT, who signed with an x, but says nothing about a marriage dispensation.  See also Stanley LeBlanc PDF, "Acadian Prisoners, 1761-1762 at Ft. Edward, Pisiguit."

32.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Étienne LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:464, 480 (SJA-1, 46), his marriage record, calls him Éstienne LEBLANC, gives his & his wife's parent's names, calls his mother Isabelle GOUDERAU, says her father's name was "illegible," that both sets of parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Maturin LEBLANC & Joseph LANDRY; BRDR, 2:464 (SJA-4, 7), his death/burial record, calls him Estevan LEBLANC, "age 45 years of Acadia & Husband of Osita LEBLANC, but does not give his parents' names.   

33.  Wall of Names, 30 (pl. 7R), calls him Étienne LE BLANC, & lists him singly; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 561-62, Family No. 633; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 20-21, calls him Étienne LEBLANC, laboureur, age 36, on the embarkation list, Étienne LEBLANC, on the debarkation list, & Étienne LEBLANC, plowman, age 36, on the complete listing, says he was in the 41st Family aboard La Bergère, listed singly, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to him after he reached LA; NOAR, 6:171 (SLC, F4, 70), his death/burial record, calls him Estevan LEBLANC, "native of Acadia, 50 yrs., bachelor," but does not give his parents' names.   See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 40, 64, 171-72.

There are several tantalizing clues that he was the brother of Élisabeth LEBLANC, wife of Louis-Francois LE TOLLIEREC:  He is listed next to Élisabeth, Louis-François, & their infant son on the passenger list of La Bergère.  See Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, pp. 20-21.  He & they settled in the same community.  In the Lafourche census of 1788, he was located only 1 farm over from them.  In the Lafourche census of 1791, his homestead was next to theirs.  And in the Lafourche census of 1795 he was living with them.  Élisabeth had an older brother named Étienne, so they probably were siblings.  See Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, cited above. 

Why did he never marry?

34.  Wall of Names, 34, calls him Francois LE BLANC son [Joseph's] frère, & lists him with 2 brothers & 2 sisters; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls him Francois, son [Joseph LEBLANC's] frère, cordier, age 13, on the embarkation list, Franco, su [Josef LEBLANC's] hermano, on the debarkation list, & François LEBLANC, his [Joseph LEBLANC's] brother, ropemaker, age 13, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 26th Family on the embarkation list & the 27th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with 2 brothers & 2 sisters; BRDR, 2:465 (ASM-2, 56), his marriage record, calls him Francois LEBLANC "of Belleisle in Mer, France," says his wife was from Nantes, France, gives his & her parents' names but not her first husband's name, says her father was deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Étienne DUPUIS & Ambrosio HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:230 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #562), his death/burial record, calls him François LEBLANC m. Marie PITRE, says he died "at age 78 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names.

35.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 10L), calls her Francoise LE BLANC, & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings, 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]; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 120, Family No. 220, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Mathurine-Françoise LEBLANC, & gives her parents' but not her godparents' names; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 60-61, calls her Francoise, sa [Pre LEBLANC's] fille, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, & Françoise LEBLANC, his [Pierre LEBLANC's] daughter, nursling, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 3rd 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 his parents & 3 siblings.

What happened to her in LA?  Did she even survive the crossing from France?  The debarkation list for Le St.-Rémi, unfortunately, has been lost, so she may have died during the crossing or soon after reaching the colony.  

36.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls her Geneviève LE BLANC sa [Joseph's] soeur, & lists her with 3 brothers & a sister; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 282, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Anne-Geneviéve LEBLANC, & gives her parents' but not her godparents' names; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls her Geneviève, sa [Joseph LEBLANC's] soeur, age 9, on the embarkation list, is not included on the debarkation list, calls her Geneviève LEBLANC, his [Joseph LEBLANC's] sister, age 9, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 26th Family aboard Le Beaumont with 3 brothers & a sister; BRDR, 2:1, 465 (ASM-2, 76), her marriage record, calls her Genoveva LE BLANC "of Belleisle in Mer, France," calls her husband Joseph HACHÉ "of St.-Malo," gives her & his parents' names, says her parents & his father were deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Ambroise HÉBERT & Joseph LEBLANC [probably her brother]; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:477 (SM Ch.: v.4, #771), her death/burial record, calls her Marie HACHÉ, wife of Joseph HACHÉ dit Canawche, does not give her parents' names, says she died, age 30, "at the home of Nicolas LEBLANC at la Fausse Pointe," & was buried "in the parish cemetery."

Where did the St. Martinville priest in Aug 1812 get Marie for her name?

37.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 10L), calls her Geneviève LE BLANC, & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings, 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]; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 120, Family No. 220, calls her Geneviève [LEBLANC], & details her 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 Geneviève, sa [Pre LEBLANC's] fille, age 21, on the embarkation list, & Geneviève LEBLANC, his [Pierre LEBLANC's] daughter, age 21, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 3rd 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 his parents & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:465, 543 (ASC-2, 3), her marriage record, calls her Geneive LE BLANC of Acadia, calls her husband Joseph-Francois MICHEL of Acadia, does not give her or his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Geronimo THERAN & Pierre GOTREAU.  

Despite what the priest at Ascension said in her marriage record, she & her husband were born in France, not in Acadia.  

Her older sister Marie also married an Acadian MICHEL, but they were distant cousins, not brothers.  

38.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Gilles LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2536, 2540, says he was born in 1757; BRDR, 2:313, 466 (SJA-1, 51), the record of his first marriage, calls him Gille LEBLANC, gives his & his wife's parents' names, calls his mother Isabelle GODÉ, says both sets sof parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Bonaventure GODIN & Josèphe BREAU; BRDR, 2:466, 479 (ASC-1, 151 & 152), the record of his second marriage, calls him Gil LEBLANC, widower of Théostista GODIN, calls his wife Marine LEBLANC, widow of Josef BABEIN, does not give any parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph LEBLANC & Isaac LEBLANC; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:125, 600 (SM Ch.: v.5, #420), a record of his third marriage, calls him Gilles LEBLANC, "inhabitant of this parish, native of Acadie, widower from his last marriage to dec. Marine LEBLANC," calls him a major son, calls his wife Magdeleine BOURGEOIS, "of this parish, native of St. James parish on the river, widow of dec. Auguste GRAVOIS," calls her a minor daughter, gives his & her parents' names, says her father was deceases at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Raymond FRANCOIS, Édouard ARNAUD, André LEBLANC, Michel HALPHEN, & ___ BERARD, fils; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:125, 600 (SM Ct.Hse.: OA-30-3007), another record of his third marriage, calls him Gille LEBLANC, calls his wife Magdeleine BOURGEOIS "wid. of Auguste GRAVOIS of St. Jacques," gives his but not her parents' names, does not mention his previous wives, & does not give any witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 5(rev.):389 (SJA-4, 62), his death/burial record, calls him Gilles LEBLANC, "74 yrs. old," but does not give his parents' names or mention any wives.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 164.

When did he move from the river to Bayou Teche?  None of his siblings moved to the western prairies.  Why did he return to St. James Parish in his old age when all of his sons remained on Bayou Teche?  The man got around--unusual for Acadians, especially of the first generation in LA.

39.  Not in Wall of NamesBRDR, 2:419, 467 (SJA-1, 43a), his marriage record, calls him Jean-Charles & Charles (Jean) LEBLANC, calls his wife Ausite LANDRIS, gives his & her parents' names, says "both parties Acadians by nationality," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Thomas THERIOT & François LANDRY. 

Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 158-59, says that the Jean-Charles LEBLANC who married Osite LANDRY at St.-Jacques in Aug 1770 was the one who came to LA from MD in 1767 with wife Judith LANDRY.  The Jean-Charles from MD was age about 53 in 1767, & his wife Judith was age about 40.  Trouble is, Jean-Charles from Grand-Pré via MD was son of probably Joseph dit Le Maigre LE BLANC & Anne BOURG, not Jean LE BLANC & Marie THERIOT, as the marriage record insists.  See note 58, below. 

When did this Jean-Charles/Charles-Jean reach LA--1765 from Halifax, or 1766, 1767, or 1768 from MD?

Why is he not in Wall of Names?  Was he from another family & was inadvertently placed in the LEBLANC section?  His wife's version of the marriage record, though it provides a slightly different given name for him, says clearly that he was a LEBLANC. 

Did he & his wife have any children? 

40.  Not in Wall of Names.  Her husband was counted with his parents at Newton, MD, in Jul 1763, so they married after that date.  See Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156. 

The baptismal record of son Olivier LEBLANC, dated 25 Nov 1766, in NOAR, 2:177 (SLC, B5, 149), says the boy was born on the same day as his baptism in New Orleans & that his parents were Silvain LEBLANC & Magdelene LE BLANC.  This means that Sylvain came to LA not with his second wife, as Wall of Names insists, but with his first wife, Marie-Madeleine LEBLANC; she should therefore be added to the Acadian Memorial's Wall of Names. 

The Cabanocé census of Sep 1769 shows Sylvain LEBLANC with his second wife, so Marie-Madeleine must have died between late Nov 1766 & 1769.  See Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 175. 

41.  Wall of Names, 22, calls her Hélène LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2435, says she was born in 1758, & on p. 2538 says she was born in 1764; BRDR, 2:132, 463 (SJA-2, 2), her marriage record, calls her Elena LEBLANC, calls her husband Josef BURSUA, gives her & his parents' names, says his parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Simon BLANC & Rosa LIGUA; BRDR, 6:408 (SMI-4, 194), her death/burial record, calls her Hélène LE BLANC, "age 90 yrs. widow of Joseph BOURGEOIS, dit L'Habitant," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 177; De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 16.  

A compromise between the ages found in the Cabanocé census of 1769 & the St.-Jacques census of 1777 is used here to determine her estimated birth year.  With this in mind, she was probably in her early 80s, not 90, when she died. 

Her husband was a son of her mother's second husband & therefore her stepbrother.  One wonders where he got the dit in her burial record.  He died at St. James in Jun 1806, so she was a widow for over 40 years. 

42.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Hyacinthe LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:467, 534-35 (SGA-14, 6, #14), his marriage record, calls him Isaac LEBLANC, gives his & his wife's parents' names, but gives no witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 4:350 (SGA-8, 129), his death/burial record, calls him Isaac LEBLANC, "age 63," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431. 

LA church records call him Isac, Isaac, or Ysac, never Hyacinthe.  See his marriage record, the baptismal records of sons Clotin & Maximilien & daughters Victoire, Adélaïde, Marie-Rose, Marie-Dephine, Marguerite, Félicité-Adeline, Arthémise, & Hortense, & the marriage records of daughters Marie Clothilde, Adélaïde, Marie Rose, Victoire, Hortense, Arthémise, & Marie-Delphine, & Marguerite, dated 4 Nov 1787, 31 May 1789, 11 Sep 1791, 8 May 1793, 24 Jan 1796, 22 Apr 1798, 28 May 1800, 27 Sep 1801, 11 Nov 1804, 25 May 1807, 1 Jun 1807, 14 Jun 1813, 3 Aug 1818, 13 Sep 1819, 10 Jun 1820, 17 Jul 1820, 2 Dec 1826, 3 Mar 1827, 30 Apr 1827, & 22 Jun 1828, in BRDR, 2:458, 462, 463, 464-65, 473, 485, 3:527, 529, 548, 551, 558, 4:346, 350, 355, 356 (SGA-6, 5 #131; SGA-11, 23, 51, 60, 77, 89 #436, 99, 107 #546, 135, 159; SGA-14, 64, 103, 158, 173, 183, 185, 235, 236, 237; SGA-15, 8), & his burial record.  Did the Spanish official at St.-Gabriel in 1767 confuse Isaac with Hyacinthe & call him Jacinto, the Spanish equivalent of Hyacinthe, hence Wall of Names's use of Hyacinthe instead of Isaac? 

43.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Isaac LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2541, calls him Isaac LEBLANC, says he was born in 1746 but does not give his birthplace, gives his parents' names, says he married Marie MELANÇON in c1770 but does not give the place of marriage, says she was born in 1747, that he occupied lot number 144 on the east side of the Mississippi at St.-Jacques in 1769, that he lived at Ascension in c1778, that he remarried to Marguerite BABIN in c1781 but does not give her parents' names or place of marriage, & lists his children as, from his first marriage, Marie-Sophie born in 1774, Marie-Félicité in 1775, & Jean-Baptiste in 1778, & from his second marriage, Pierre born in 1783, Osite in 1784, Madeleine in 1785, & Barthélémy in 1787; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 171, & Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 425, the record of his first marriage, calls him Isaac LE BLANC & calls his wife Marie LAUDRY (LANDRY) & LANDRIE; BRDR, 2:50, 467 (ASC-1, 144), the record of his second marriage, calls him Isaac LEBLANC, widower of Maria MELANÇON, calls his wife Margarita BABEIN, gives hers but not his parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Carlos LINCOUR & Jérôme LEBLANC [his brother]; BRDR, 2:467 (ASC-4, 15), his death/burial record, calls him Isaac LEBLANC, husband of Margarita BABIN, & lists his accomplishments.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 171, 178; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 6, 16. 

The censuses at Cabanocé & Ascension in 1769, 1770, & 1777, all disagree with the record of his first marriage; they say his first wife was a MELANÇON, not a LANDRY.  The record of his second marriage agrees.  So why did the marriage record call her a LANDRY? 

Was he the Isaac LEBLANC who clashed with Commandant Louis JUDICE of Ascension over the spread of smallpox there in Oct 1787?  If so, Spanish Gov. MIRÓ was forced to punish him for insubordination.  See Brasseaux, Founding of New Acadia, 173-74. 

44.  Wall of Names, 22, calls him Isaac LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2435, says he was born in 1753; BRDR, 2:25, 467 (SJA-2, 8), his marriage record, calls him Isaac LEBLANC, calls his wife Maria ARCENOT, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of New England," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Pedro BERNARD & Maria LEBLANC; BRDR, 3:538 (SMI-1, 22a; SMI-8, 3), his death/burial record, calls him Isaac, "age 61, nat. Angleterre (New England) spouse Marieanne ARCENEAUX," but does not gives his parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 151; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 177; De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 16. 

The age given for him in the St.-Jacques census of 1777 is used here to determine his estimated birth year.  Note how close it is the age given for him in the Cabanocé census of 1769.  The age in his burial record seems way off the mark, not unusual in the days before birth certificates, when priests had to depend on family members to remember a loved one's age. 

The record is clear that he was born in MD.  See Jehn, cited above.  Evidently "Angleterre (New England)" to a French-speaking priest in LA in 1810 meant any of the English colonies in North America that became the United States.  

The baptismal & burial records of daughter Céleste, dated 30 Mar 1794 & 31 Jan 1800, the baptismal record of daughter Marie-Justine, dated 23 Mar 1800, & the baptismal records of sons Jean-Baptiste-Estanislado, Sosthène, & Étienne, dated 29 Jul 1792, 6 Jan 1797, & 10 Dec 1803, in BRDR, 2:462, 464, 470, 476, 485 (SJA-3, 52; SJA-3, 73, 147, 192 & 193, 271; SJA-4, 15), call his wife Mariana & Marianne, as does his burial record.  Her parents came to LA in 1765 without children, so she was a native of LA. 

45.  Wall of Names, 14, calls her Isabelle LE BLANC; BRDR, 1a:128 (SGA-1, 120), her birth/baptismal record, calls her Elizabet, gives her parents' names, says her godparents were Germain TERIOT & Magdeleine TERIOT, & that her father signed the baptismal record; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:500 (SM Ch.: v.1, p.14), one of her death/burial records, calls her Isabelle LEBLANC, "wid. of Victor BROUSSARD," but does not give her parents' names or her age when she died; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:499-500 (SM Ch.: Slave Funeral Register, v.1, #29), another of her death/burial records, calls her Isabelle LEBLANC m. to Victor BROUSSARD, but does not give her parents' names or her age at the time of her death 

Despite what one of her burial records say, her husband Victor was still alive when she died.  There is no evidence that she & Victor had children when they came to LA, but see the footnote for his profile for a list of the children they did have.

Judging by the date of her death, she probably was a victim of the epidemic that struck down dozens of her fellow Teche valley Acadians that summer & fall. 

46.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Isabelle LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:463-64, 483 (ASC-1, 120), her marriage record, calls her Élisabeth LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says her parents were "of St. James," calls her mother Élisabeth GODIN & his father Stephan LEBLANC, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Martin PREJEAN & François DUHON; BRDR, 3:538 (ASC-4, 121), her death/burial record, calls her Isabelle LEBLANC, "nat. of Acadia, wid. of Simon LEBLANC," but does not give her parents' names.   

47.  Wall of Names, 10, calls her Isabelle-Marguerite LE BLANC; BRDR, 3:538 (SGA-8, 35), her death/burial record, calls her Isabelle LEBLANC, "age 60, spouse of Jean Baptiste BABIN," but does not give her parents' names. 

48.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Jacques LE BLANC.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156. 

He & his 3 siblings came to LA in 1765, 1766, & 1785, from Halifax, MD, & France--a fascinating story of the power of familial relations. 

49.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him Jacques [LE BLANC], & lists him with his parents & 2 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 283; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 4-5, calls him Jacques, son [Simon LEBLANC's] fils, age 13, on the embarkation list, Santiago, su [Simon LEBLANC's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Jacques LEBLANC, his [Simon LEBLANC's] son, age 13, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 7th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 2 siblings; BRDR, 2:141, 483 (SGA-14, 24, #88), his marriage record, calls him Santiago LEBLANC, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says both sets of parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Lorenzo ANRY & Miguel GAREILLE; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 5:349 (SM Ch.: v.5, p.230), probably his death/burial record, calls him Jacques LEBLANC, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 6:372 (SM Ct.Hse.: Succ. #1501), probably his succession record, calls him Jacques LEBLANC but gives no parents' names nor mentions a wife. 

He was one of the last Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

50.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls him Jacques [LE BLANC] son [Joseph LEBLANC's] frère, & lists him with 2 brothers & 2 sisters; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 283, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jacques-Hypolithe LEBLANC, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Jean-Jacques LEDRU & Anne GRANGER; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls him Jacques, son [Joseph LEBLANC's] frère, charpentier, age 14, on the embarkation list, Santiago, su [Josef LEBLANC's] hermano, on the debarkation list, & Jacques LEBLANC, his [Joseph LEBLANC's] brother, carpenter, age 14, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 26th Family on the embarkation list & the 27th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with 2 brothers & 2 sisters; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:230 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #143), his death/burial record, calls him Jacques Hyppolite LEBLANC m. Marie Marguerite GAUDET, says he died "at age 78 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names.

His marriage is hinted at in son Joseph-Henri's baptismal record, dated 19 Mar 1803, in BRDR, 2:468 (ASM-1, 264), which calls the parents Santiago Hypolito LEBLANC of "Belleisle en Mer" & Margarita GAUDET of "Cahaabanoce," & in his burial record, cited above.  Jacques Hippolyte & Marguerite were married probably at Assumption in the late 1790s, but where is their marriage record?  Her parents, both from Port-Royal, had come to LA in 1765 from either Halifax or St.-Domingue.  After their marriage was blessed at New Orleans in late Dec of that year, they settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where Marguerite probably was born in the early 1770s. 

Why does the baptismal record of twin daughters Maria Blanca & Rosalie Marcelina, dated 15 Jun 1801, in BRDR, 2:475, 482 (ASM-1, 207), call him Pablo or Paul?  This same record gives Jacques-Hippolyte's wife's parents' names. 

51.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him Jean LE BLANC, & lists him with his wife & daughter; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 114, Family No. 210, calls him Jean LEBLANC, gives his birth date, birthplace, his parents' names, calls his wife Tarsille, gives her parents' names, details his marriage, says at the time of his marriage that he was a resident of St.-Martin, Chantenay, "since several years," provides the baptismal record of daughter Marie-Rose, baptized 11 Jun 1784, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 4-5, calls him Jean LEBLANC, calfac, age 36, on the embarkation list, Juan LEBLANC, on the debarkation list, & Jean LEBLANC, calker, age 36, on the complete listing, says he was in the 8th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his wife & daughter, details his marriage, calling his wife Tarsille, & says that daughter Marie-Rose was baptized in 1784.  See <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Duc_Guillaume.htm>, Family No. 23, for his possible deportation to St.-Malo in 1758.

What happened to him in LA?

52.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls him Jean [LE BLANC], & lists him with his parents & 3 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 574-75, Family No. 648; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 121, Family No. 221; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 8-9, calls him Jean, son [Pre LEBLANC's] fils, age 13, on the embarkation list, Juan, su [Pedro LEBLANC's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Jean LEBLANC, his [Pierre LEBLANC's] son, age 13, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 27th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 3 brothers.

What happened to him in LA?

53.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Jean-Baptiste LE BLANC, & lists him singly; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2539, the LA section, calls him Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC, says he was born in c1752 but gives no birthplace, probablement son of Joseph [LEBLANC] & Marie-Marguerite LANDRY of Grand-Pré, details his marriage, including his wife's parents' names, says they settled at Donaldsonville, & lists his children as Jean-Alexis, born in 1777, & Joseph in 1778, but give no birthplaces; BRDR, 2:199, 467 (ASC-1, 132), his marriage record, calls him Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC, calls his wife Margarita COMO, does not give his or her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Anselme BELLILE & Maturin LANDRY.  See also De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 5; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 434.

54.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Jean-Baptiste LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:294, 470 (SGA-5, 28), his marriage record, calls him Juan Bautista LEBLANC, gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Pablo BABEIN & Pablo HÉBERT. 

Was he the Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC called Agros?  Two of his brothers, Joseph & Simon, had similar dits, so it probably was him.  They must have been big boys. 

55.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls him Jean-Baptiste [LE BLANC], & lists him with his widowed mother & sister; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 567-69, Family No. 641b, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were André TEMPLÉ & Agnès PITRE, & says his family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 22-23, calls him Jean-Baptiste, son [Natalie PITRE, veuve LEBLANC's] fils, marin, age 17, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC, son, sailor, age 17, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 46th Family aboard La Bergère with his widowed mother & sister; BRDR, 2:116, 470 (SJA-2, 28), his marriage record, calls him Juan Baptista LEBLANC, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says his parents were "of St. Malo," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan Bap. BOURGOIS, Simon BOUDRAUX, & Eduardo LEBLANC; BRDR, 4:351 (SJA-4, 47a), his death/burial record, calls him Jean Baptiste LEBLANC, "age about 51 yrs., nat. of Nantes, France," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.

The family member(s) who informed the priest of Jean Baptiste's birthplace remembered the wrong city in France.   Jean-Baptiste lived at Nantes for 8 years or so as a child and a teenager, but he was born at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo, on the other side of Brittany from Nantes. 

Why did he leave the upper bayou & go to St.-Jacques?  This was an unusual move for an Acadian living in that area.  He may have gone to the river to marry & then remained near his wife's family, who had come to LA from Halifax in 1765.  Marie-Henriette was a native of St.-Jacques.  How did they meet? 

56.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls him Jean-Baptiste [LE BLANC], & lists him with his parents & 5 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 112-13, Family No. 207, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC, gives his parents' names, does not give his godparents' names, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 54-55, calls him Jean Bte, son [Charles LEBLANC's] fils, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC, son [of Charles LEBLANC], a nursling, on the complete listing, says he was in the 53rd Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 5 siblings, & that he was baptized in 1784 but gives no place of baptism; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:231 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #629), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Jean Baptiste LEEBLANC, says he died "at age 70 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  

He was the second son in the family named Jean-Baptiste.  The first one, baptized at Châtellerault in Poitou in Jun 1774, lived only a month.  See Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 67, Family No. 134.

His burial record, if it was his, hints that he may not have married.  He may have been one of the last Acadian immigrants to join our ancestors.

57.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls him Jean-Baptiste LE BLANC, & lists him with his wife, no children, & a niece; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 564, Family No. 636, calls him Jean LEBLANC, says he was born in c1740 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, details his marriage but gives no place of marriage nor his wife's parents' names, & says he, his wife, & "Simon, Élizabeth, and Marguerite LEBLANC, his brother and sisters, disembarked at St.-Malo from England on May 22, 1763 from the ship, La Dorothée"; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 66-67, calls him Jean Bte LEBLANC, cordonier, age 44, on the embarkation list, Juan Bautista LEBLANC, on the debarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC, shoemaker, age 44, on the complete listing, says he was in the 5th Family aboard L'Amitié with his wife, no children, & a niece, & lists the implements the Spanish gave him when he reached LA.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 497.  

He & his wife going to San Bernardo is only a guess based on the fact that they are not in the Lafourche valley census records of the 1780s & 1790s with other passengers from their ship & that some passengers from their ship went to "Nueva Galvez."  See <thecajuns.com/1785acad.pdf>.  He & his wife may have gone from New Orleans straight to the Opelousas District, for all I know, where his wife seems to have remarried in Aug 1797, though no record of him is found at Opelousas either.  His younger sister Marguerite & her husband, Charles BOURG, sailed to LA aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the ship after L'Amitié, & settled at Bayou des Écores, above Baton Rouge, before moving to upper Bayou Lafourche by the mid-1790s, but there is no evidence that Jean-Baptiste & his wife went to Bayou des Écores either.  

58.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Jean-Charles LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2538, the LA section, calls him Jean-Charles LEBLANC, says he was born in c1736 but gives no birthplace, probablement son of Joseph [LEBLANC] & Anne BOURG of Grand-Pré, says he married Judith LANDRY in c1756 but gives no place of marriage, does not give her parents' names, says he was a deportee at Baltimore, MD, & lists his children as Jean-Baptiste, born in c1757, Joseph in c1758, Simon in c1760, & Marie in c1762, but gives no birthplaces.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 157; Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 158-59; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431.   

Arsenault's birth year, in light of the ages given in the Spanish report at St.-Gabriel in 1767, is way off.  

Arsenault says that Jean-Charles & Judith were married in c1756, but the age of their oldest child, son Jean-Baptiste, 15, in the Spanish report of 1767 indicates a marriage date of c1751 or c1752.

See note 39, above. 

59.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him Jean-Charles LE BLANC, & lists him with his wife & no children; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 556-57, Family No. 629, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles-Jean HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Jean GUILLO & Marie BENOIST, & that his family lived at Châteauneuf from 1759-62 & St.-Servan from 1762-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 66-67, Family No. 134, calls him Jean-Charles [LEBLANC], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 112-13, Family No. 207, calls him Jean-Charles [LEBLANC], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Jean-Charles LEBLANC, marin, age 23, on the embarkation list, Juan Carlos LEBLANC, on the debarkation list, & Jean-Charles LEBLANC, sailor, age 23, on the complete listing, says that he was in the 6th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his wife & no children, & gives the birthdays of 2 of his children in LA--daughter Scholastique, born 7 Mar 1792, no birth place given, & son Amable-André, born 7 Feb 1794, no birth place given.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 526; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 53.  

The Spanish report at Baton Rouge lists 2 Charles LEBLANCs, so he could be either one of them.  See Voorhies, J..  The census taker at Assumption in 1795 called him Charles-Jean, which was his actual name, though he sometimes was called Jean-Charles.

He & his wife buried 5 children at New Orleans in Sep & Oct 1799, probably victims of a yellow fever epidemic:  (1)Charles, "very young child," buried 9 Sep, (2)Isabelle, age 9, buried 13 Oct, (3)Angélique, "very young child," buried 21 Oct, (4)Rosalie, age 14, buried 24 Oct, & (5)Augustin, age 3, buried 25 Oct.  See NOAR, 6:171-72. 

60.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8R), calls him Jean-Martin [LE BLANC], & lists him with his parents, a sister, & a female paternal cousin; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 117, Family No. 216, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Martin LEBLANC, does not gives his godparents' names, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls him Jean-Martin, son [Moïse LEBLANC's] fils, age 1, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Jean-Martin LEBLANC, his [Moïse LEBLANC's] son, age 1, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 24th Family on the embarkation list of Le Beaumont with his parents, a sister, & a female paternal cousin; BRDR, 3:542, 697 (ASM-2, 90), the record of his first marriage, calls him Juan Martin LEBLANC "of Chantenais in Nantes," says his wife was "of St. James," gives his & her parents' names, calls his mother Angela FORET, says both of his parents' were deceased at the time of the wedding, that her father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Simon DUGAT & Ambroise HÉBERT; BRDR, 3:539, 819 (ASM-7, 31), the record of his second marriage, calls him Jean Martin LEBLANC, widower Céleste PITRE, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says his parents were "of St. Martin par., Nantes, France res. St. Joseph Lafourche par." & were both deceased at the time of the wedding, that her parents were "of Lafourche," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Michel BERNARD & Jean LANDRY; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:345 (Houma Ct.Hse.: Succ. #54-B), a petition for tutelage & inventory, dated 16 Feb 1836, calls him Jean Martin LEBLANC m. Clémence THIBODAUX, says he died in Apr 1826, & lists his children as Angélique m. Jean Baptiste HÉBERT & Marguerite m. Hypolite NAQUIN; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:345 (Houma Ct.Hse.: OA: v.2, #371), "hypotheque," dated 22 Apr 1836, calls him Jean Martin LEBLANC, & grants tutelage of his minor children--Ambroise Félicien, Marie Ursine, Michel Nicolas, & Silvani Benjamin, "children of Jean Martin & Clémence THIBODEAUX"--to George C. BEDFORD.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 503. 

61.  Wall of Names, 22, calls him Pierre LE BLANC 2; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2538, the LA section, calls him Jean-Pierre LEBLANC, says he was born in 1727 but gives no birthplace, son of probablement René LEBLANC & Anne THÉRIOT of Grand-Pré, says he married Osite MELANCON in c1752 but gives no place of marriage, does not give her parents' names, says he occupied lot number 115 on the east side of the Mississippi at St.-Jacques in 1769, lists his children as Isaac, born in 1760, Joseine in 1762, Hélène in 1764, & Simon in 1767 but gives no birthplaces, & says his widow married Baptiste BOURGEOIS.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 151; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 177. 

Is Arsenault referring to the Jean-Pierre, son of Pierre LEBLANC & Anne TÉRRIOT, born & baptized at Grand-Pré on 11 Apr 1726?  See BRDR, 1a(rev.):135 (SGA-2, 68).  The ages match.  If the Jean-Pierre LEBLANC who went to LA was the son of Pierre LEBLANC & Anne TÉRRIOT--& I have no doubt this is him--then the Madeleine LEBLANC who came with him & his family to LA in 1766 was his mother-in-law, not his mother, as the Cabanocé census of 1766 insists. 

62.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Jérôme LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2541, says he married in c1769; BRDR, 2:466 (ASC-4, 4), his death/burial record, calls him Geronimo LEBLANC, "age 40 years," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 3.

For the clash with Commandant Louis JUDICE over levee maintenance, see Brasseaux, Founding of New Acadian, 175. 

63.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Jérôme LE BLANC, & lists him singly.  I have found him in no other source.

64.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Joseph LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2536, says he was born in 1720; White, DGFA-1, 997, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, gives his parents' names, details his birth/baptism, says his godparents were Jean GAUTROT & Marie LEBLANC, details his marriage, including his wife's parents' names, calls his wife Isabelle GAUDET, says they had to secure a "disp 4-4 cons" in order to marry, that he was at Cabahannocer in 1766, age 48, in 1769, age 50 in 1777, age 57, & details his death/burial; BRDR, 3:540 (SJA-4, 26), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, "age 86 yrs., widower Isabelle GODE," but does not give his parents' names.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 164. 

Why is his wife sometimes called Élisabeth GAUDIN/GODIN in LA church records?  See, for example, the marriage record of daughter Élisabeth, dated 21 Sep 1772, in BRDR, 2:463-64, 483 (ASC-1, 120. 

Who was Grégoire, supposedly his 15-year-old son, in the St.-Jacques census of 1777?  He appears in no earlier census--1766, 1769--with the family.  Was he a young engagé living with Joseph at the time & who was mistakenly listed as a son?  See De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 9.  The only other Grégoire LEBLANC I have found who was living in 1777 was a son of Désiré LEBLANC, born probably at Ascension in c1769.  See Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 4, 13; BRDR, 2:466.  I will not include a Grégoire, son of Joseph LEBLANC, on this listing until I find more evidence that he existed. 

He & his 3 siblings came to LA in 1765, 1766, & 1785, from Halifax, MD, & France--a fascinating story of the power of familial relations. 

65.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Joseph LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:470, 474 (SJA-1, 13a), his marriage record, calls him Josephe LEBLANC, gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Josèphe BLACHAR & François DUHANT; BRDR, 2:264, 468 (SJA-2, 4), the record of his second marriage, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, "of Acadia," calls his wife Pélagie DOARON "of Acadia," does not give his or her parents' names but says both sets of parents "were Acadians," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan Baptista GODRO & Ana DEUON/DUON "of the Parish"; BRDR, 3:540 (SJA-4, 45a), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, "age about 70 yrs., nat. Acadia," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  

The editors of BRDR place his second wife in the DUHON, not the DOIRON, family section.  Why?  The record of her first marriage to Antoine RODRIGUEZ places her properly among the DOIRONs.  See BRDR, 1b:64 (PCP-3, 256; PCP-4, 28).  There was no Pélagie DUHON of her generation.  The Ana DEUON/DUON who witnessed his second marriage may be Pélagie's sister Agathe DOIRON. 

Cudos to Connie DeWitte & Stanley LeBlanc for straightening me out on the second marriage. 

66.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Joseph LE BLANC; NOAR, 2:177 (SLC, B5, 110), his baptismal record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, gives his parents' names, his birth date, & says his godparents were Michel BOURGEOIS & Marguerite BOURQUE. 

What happened to him in LA?

67.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Joseph LE BLANC; BRDR, 4:351 (SGA-8, 118), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, "age 70," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 158; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 3.

His dit is from the St.-Gabriel census of 1777, which says "Adans," probably a misspelling of "Adons."  The burial record of Marie Marguerite LANDRY, dated 9 Apr 1814, in BRDR, 3:508 (SGA-8, 66), calls her "spouse of Joseph LEBLANC, called Atout."  Was this him, or another Joseph LEBLANC? 

He is easily confused with Joseph-Michel, son of Michel LEBLANC, who also married a Marguerite LANDRY & lived at St.-Gabriel about the same time. 

68.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Joseph LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:469, 705 (ASC-2, 10), his marriage record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, calls his wife Julie TRAHANT, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Chrisostômes TRAHANT & Ana GRANGER; BRDR, 3:540 (SGA-8, 51), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, "called Agros, age 55," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

The marriage record of son Joseph, fils, dated 14 Apr 1817, in BRDR, 3:540 (SGA-14, 135), may be saying that Joseph, père & his wife may have been "of Baton Rouge."

Joseph's dit also can be found in daughter Renée Sophie's marriage record, dated 19 May 1816, in BRDR, 3:555 (SGA, p. 29 at St. Louis Cathedral, New Orleans), & provides the clue separating him from the other Joseph LEBLANCs at St.-Gabriel.  What does the dit mean?  Large?  Fat?  His younger brother Simon was called Agros or Le Gros probably for the same reason. 

The marriage record of daughter Constance, dated 19 Jun 1826, in BRDR, 4:347 (SJO-10, 19), calls her parents Joseph LEBLANC & Julie TRAHAN "of West Baton Rouge Parish," originally Baton Rouge Parish, renamed West Baton Rouge Parish in 1812 two years after East Baton Rouge Parish was created from the territory seized from Spain in 1810. 

Was he a widower at the time of his death?  See the strangely-worded burial record of "Joseph [LEBLANC] Madame, age 34, calls Agnos," dated 6 Jan 1808, in BRDR, 3:540 (SGA-8, 43).  Despite the too-young age, this probably is the burial record of Joseph dit Agros's wife, Anne-Julie TRAHAN. 

69.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls him Joseph LE BLANC, & lists him with his wife & 4 children; White, DGFA-1, 1006-07, calls him Joseph (dit Jambo), gives his parents' names, says he was their ninth & youngest son & their 13th & youngest child, details his birth/baptism, marriages, & locations during exile, but does not include his death/burial date or place; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 568; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 68, Family No. 137; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 116-17, Family No. 214; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, charpentier, age 54, on the embarkation list, Josef LEBLANC on the debarkation list, & Joseph LEBLANC, carpenter, age 54, on the complete listing, says he was in the 1st Family aboard Le Bon Papa with wife, 4 children, & wife's stepmother, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names & the name of his first wife, & explains the relationship of Esther COURTENAY [COURTNEY] to his second wife [she was Anne's stepmother & embarked with Anne's brother Amable's family (5th Family on Le Bon Papa) but disembarked with Anne's family].  

Thanks to the diligent work of French & Canadian historians, a letter Joseph dit Jambo wrote from Liverpool to his older brother Charles in Southampton, England, has survived.  Dated 21 Sep 1757, Jambo's letter reads:  "To Charles LEBLANC / "My dear brother, I tell you these words to tell you that my very dear wife [Marguerite TRAHAN] has left this world to pass to the other world.  I will tell you that she had been sick eight weeks; she died of the tropics (trospisque) [perhaps smallpox].  But she received all the aid that a dying person can receive at death.  As for me, I am in good health as well as my two children [son Jean-Baptiste, then age 5, & daughter Odile, age 3].  I beseech you to pray for her and to commend her to all our good relatives and friends.  Give my regards to Uncle Charles RICHARD as well as his wife.  Give my regards to aunt Marguerite COMMO and all her family.  Give my regards to Jean Jacques TERRIOT and his brother Olivier [who would lead the Acadians from France to LA in 1784-85] and all the French neutrals in general.  I remain in grief your servant and brother. / (Signature) Joseph LEBLANC."  See Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 568; Mouhot, "Letter by Joseph LeBlanc--A Prisoner in England," in Perrin et al., Acadie Then & Now, 257-62, text of the letter, p. 260.   

70.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him Joseph [LE BLANC], & lists him with his parents & 2 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 285, 570; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 4-5, calls him Joseph, son [Simon LEBLANC's] fils, marin, age 20, on the embarkation list, Josef, su [Simon LEBLANC's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Joseph LEBLANC, his [Simon LEBLANC's] son, sailor, age 20, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 7th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 2 siblings; BRDR, 2:468, 474 (SGA-14, 8), the record of his first marriage, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, calls his wife Margarite LEBLANC, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Lyon, France," & hers "of Plausan Parish, Trigue, France," but gives no witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 2:469, 505 (SGA-14, 26, #98), the record of his second marriage, calls him Joseph LEBLANC "of this Parish," calls his wife Corantin LONGUÉPÉE, gives his & her parents' names, says all parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Lorenzo ANRY & Luis BRAU; BRDR, 4:351 (SGA-8, 98), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, "age 60," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

He & his first wife sailed to France on the same ship.  They probably had known one another since their childhood on Belle-Île-en-Mer. 

His death at St. Gabriel in Jun 1821 is only a guess.

71.  Wall of Names, 28 (pl. 6R), calls him Joseph [LE BLANC], & lists him with his parents & 3 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 574-75, Family No. 648; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 121, Family No. 221; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 8-9, calls him Joseph, son [Pre LEBLANC's] fils, age 17, on the embarkation list, Josef, su [Pedro LEBLANC's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Joseph LEBLANC, his [Pierre LEBLANC's] son, age 17, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 27th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents & 3 brothers.

What happened to him in LA?

72.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls him Joseph [LE BLANC], & lists him with his parents & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 285, 568; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 68, Family No. 137; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 116-17, Family No. 214; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Joseph, son [Joseph LEBLANC's] fils, age 15, on the embarkation list, Josef, su [Josef LEBLANC's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Joseph LEBLANC, his [Joseph LEBLANC's] son, age 15, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 1st Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his parents, 3 siblings, & widowed step-grandmother.

73.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls him Joseph LE BLANC, & lists him with 2 brothers & 2 sisters; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 285, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, says he was born at Le Palais, Belle-Île-en-Mer, gives his parents' names, calls his mother Marguerite BELLEMÈRE, says they were "Accadiens," & that his godparents were Jean LEBLANC & Francoise Josèphe GRANGÉ; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, califat, age 17, on the embarkation list, Josef LEBLANC, on the debarkation list, & Joseph LEBLANC, calker, age 17, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 26th Family on the embarkation list & the 27th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with 2 brothers & 2 sisters; BRDR, 2:468 (ASC-2, 14), his marriage record, calls him Josef LE BLANC, does not give his or his wife's parents' names but says his parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Charle RICHARD & Alexis LE BRON; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:345 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, p.47), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, "b. at Saint Malau, Bretagne, France," says he was "age 65 yrs." when he died, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:345 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: Year 1829), his succession inventory record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC m. Marie GOTREAUX, lists his children as "Auguste, Simon, Eulalie m. Jean Baptiste BOUDRAUX, Pélagie m. Pelegrin BOUDRAUX, Pierre Gratien, & d.Charles," but does not give his parents' names.

He was born not at St.-Malo, as his burial record claims, but at Le Palais on Belle-Île-en-Mer. 

74.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 9R), calls him Joseph LE BLANC, & lists him singly, 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 him Joseph LEBLANC, employé, age 37, on the embarkation list, & Joseph LEBLANC, worker, age 37, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 12th "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 no one else; BRDR, 2:442, 469 (ASC-2, 57), the record of his second marriage, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, widower of Margarita FORET, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says all parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Charle CELLIER & Grégoire LEBLANC; BRDR, 5(rev.):390 (ASM-3, 259), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, "age ca. 87 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 513; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 30, 67, 107, 113. 

BRDR, 2:485 (ASM-1, 75), the birth/baptismal record of son Valerio Zipriano, dated 9 Oct 1796, confirms the names of Joseph's parents, whom the priest called Acadians.  For his parents' home in Acadia before Le Grand Dérangement, see Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 281, 288, 289, the marriage records of 3 of Joseph's older siblings.  Acadians from Minas, which included Pigiguit, who ended up in France were the ones who had been sent to VA in 1755, deported to England in 1756, & repatriated to France in 1763.  Arsenault, Généalogie, 2357, the profile of Honoré LEBLANC in the Belle-Île-en-Mer section, says that Joseph & his family ended up at Morlaix by 1764 & then were at Bordustard, Le Palais, Belle-Île-en-Mer, by 1767.  Also according to Arsenault, Joseph was born in 1753 & his mother died at Liverpool, England, in 1763, on the eve of repatriation.  This conforms to the notations in the marriage records in Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, cited above.  Also according to Arsenault, Honoré LEBLANC, who did not emigrate to LA, died at Le Palais, France, in 1791, age 81.  White, DGFA-1, 997, Honoré LEBLANC's profile, says he was born & baptized 1 Nov 1710, Grand-Pré, son of Jacques LEBLANC & Catherine LANDRY, calls his wife Marie-Josèphe TRAHAN, daughter of Guillaume TRAHAN & Jacqueline BENOIT, says they married in c1731 at L'Assomption, Pigiguit, that Honoré was among the passengers sent from Liverpool to France in 1763, that he was counted at Belle-Île-en-Mer in 1765, & that he died at Le Palais on 27 Nov 1791.  

So Joseph grew up on Belle-Île-en-Mer, which in truth was another one of the failed Acadian settlements in France.  Evidently Honoré LEBLANC did not consider the place a failed settlement since he died there a number of years after his son Joseph had returned to Morlaix & then emigrated to LA.  Arsenault, pp. 2360-61, shows that Joseph's older siblings, brothers Charles, Raymond, & Paul, & sister Agathe, all remained with their father on Belle-Île-en-Mer, & were still there in the early 1800s.  One can only wonder why Joseph did not stay there, too.

According to the Lafourche valley censuses of 1795, 1797, & 1798, Joseph's son Lubin would have been born in c1786 or 1787.  So why was Joseph counted in the 1788 census at Ascension without a wife & child?  

BRDR, 2:294 (ASC-4, 13), the death record of Margarita FORET, age 28 years, buried at Ascension on 5 Feb 1793, unfortunately does not provide her parents' names or a husband's name, but this probably was Joseph's first wife.  Who her parents were, thanks to the neglect of the priest at Ascension, may never be known.  Judging by her age at the time of her death, she probably died from complications of childbirth.  

75.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Joseph LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:435, 468 (SGA-5, 27), his marriage record, calls him Josef LEBLANC, gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Buena Ventura BLANC & Jacques Jacobo LANCARD; BRDR, 3:541 (SGA-11, 307), the re-certification of his baptismal record at St. Gabriel, calls him Joseph-Michel LE BLANC, & says "Upon request of Joseph Michel LEBLANC on 2 Jan. 1819, his baptismal record be recorded in the St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish Church register by Father de SAINTPIERRE," who wrote, "I certify that this copy conforms to the original, Bt. 5 Dec. 1758, bn. 5 Dec. 1758, baptised in the Chapel of St. Joseph, Baltimore, Maryland, son of Michel LEBLANC and Marie Josèphe TRAHAN spo. Amant MELANÇON and Isabelle LEBLANC"; BRDR, 5(rev.):391 (SGA-8, 206), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph Michel LEBLANC, "age 81 yrs., bn. in Baltimore," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

He is easily confused with Joseph dit Adons, son of Bonaventure LEBLANC, who also married a Marguerite LANDRY & lived at St.-Gabriel about the same time. 

76.  Wall of Names, 22, calls him Josime LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2435, calls him Sosime LEBLANC, & says he was born in 1755; Arsenault, p. 2538, calls him Joseine LEBLANC, & says he was born in 1762; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:283, 500 (SM Ch.: v.3, #9), his marriage record, calls him Josine LEBLANC d'Acadie, says his wife also was d'Acadie, gives his & her parents' names, says his father was deceased at the time of the wedding, but gives no witnesses to his marriage; BRDR, 2:84, 469 (SJA-2, 52), the record of his second marriage, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, widower of Margarita DUHON, calls his wife Margarita BERNARD, widow of Joseph ROY, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Pedro BOURGEOIS & Carlot GODET; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:600-01 (SM Ch.: v.4, #754), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, "native of Acadie, living at La Fausse Pointe," says he died "at age 52 years at his home," that he was buried "in the parish cemetery," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:67, 600 (SM Ct.Hse.: Succ. #107 1/2), his succession record, calls him Joseph LEBLANC, widr. of Marguerite BERNARD, & says his heirs were daughter Rosalie, married to Charles THÉRIOT, Colastie, married to Julien LEBLANC, sons Eloi, age 10, Joseph, age 7 1/2, Valerie, age 6, & Marguerite, age 2.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 151; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 177; De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 16; De Ville, Southwest LA Families, 1785, 5.  

The ages given in the Cabanocé census of 1769 & the St.-Jacques census of 1777 are used here to calculate his estimated birth year.  The census taker at Attakapas in 1785 indicated that he & his wife were "over 50," but this is absurd.   

Why did he remarry at St.-Jacques?  His son Éloi by his second wife was born at St.-Jacques in Dec 1801, & his daughter Rosalie by his first wife married at St.-Jacques, in Nov 1802, so Josime seems to have returned to the river for a time.  See BRDR, 2:463, 482 (SJA-2, 65; SJA-3, 236).  His second wife's family were French Creoles, not Acadians.  Josime's succession record calls him "widr. of Marguerite BERNARD," but it probably meant that she was his widow.  Her remarriage record, dated 27 Feb 1815, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:66 (SM Ch.: v.5, #351-B), calls him Josine LEBLANC.  She remarried to Marin dit Capuchon MOUTON, older brother of Jean dit Chapeau MOUTON, founder of the city of Lafayette, so she must have returned to the prairies with Josime, who evidently died in St. Martin Parish. 

78.  Wall of Names, 22-23, lists her twice--on p. 22 (pl. 5L), they call her Madeleine LE BLANC mère, & list her with family of Pierre LE BLANC & Osite MELANSON [her daughter], & on p.  23 (pl. 5L), they call her Madeleine LE BLANC vve Jean-Baptiste MELANCON 2, & list her with son Charles & daughter Marie-Rose; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2555, says she was born in 1701; White, DGFA-1, 997, calls her Madeleine LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, details her birth/baptism & her marriage, says she & her husband had to secure "disp 3-3 cons," that she was counted at Snow Hill, MD, in 1763, at Cabahannocer in 1769, age 57, & at Ascension in 1777, age 64; BRDR, 1a(rev.): 137 (SGA-1, 33), her baptismal record, calls her Magdelaine LEBLANC, give her parents' names, & says her godparents were Jean LEBLANC & Marie COSTE; BRDR, 1a(rev.): 138 (SGA-2, 228-29), her marriage record, calls her Magdeleine LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says that she & her husband had to secure a dispensation for 3rd degree of consanguinity, that the witnesses to her marriage were Jean MELANSON, who signed, Jacques LEBLANC [her father or brother], who signed, A. BOURG, who signed, Joseph TÉRRIOT, who signed, & Aman B (sic), who signed, & that the bride & groom made their marks on the marriage document. See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 151; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 177, 178; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 473, which has a comma between Magdelaine & LEBLANC; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 16. 

I have no doubt that Madeleine LEBLANC mère & Madeleine LEBLANC vve Jean-Baptiste MELANCON 2, were the same woman.  Wall of Names lists her twice probably because she appears twice in the Cabanocé census of 1769, first with daughter Osite MELANCON, & then with son Charles & daughter Marie-Rose.  For her relationship to Osite & Charles, see their respective baptismal records, dated 19 Oct 1732 & 22 ___ 1743, in BRDR, 1a(rev.):157, 162 (SGA-2, 121; SGA-3, 20a), & the colonial report of Jul 1763, which reveals a large extended family of MELANSONs at Snow Hill, MD. 

Where did Arsenault get his preposterous birth year for her?

Did her husband die at Minas or in MD?  He was dead by Jul 1763.  What happened to son Honoré & daughter Élisabeth, counted with her at Snow Hill in Jul 1763?  Did they die in MD between Jul 1763 & late Jun 1766, when Madeleine & her family left Baltimore, or did they choose to go to Canada?  I have found no record of them at St.-Domingue/Haiti.  See Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, passim

She & her 3 brothers came to LA in 1765, 1766, & 1785, from Halifax, MD, & France--a fascinating story of the power of familial relations. 

79.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls her Magdelaine LE BLANC sa [Joseph's] soeur, & lists her with 3 brothers & a sister; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 288, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Madelaine LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, calls her mother Marguerite BELLEMERE, but does not give her godparents' names; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls her Magdelaine, sa [Joseph LEBLANC's] soeur, age 11, on the embarkation list, Magdalena, su [Josef LEBLANC's] hermano, on the debarkation list, & Magdelaine LEBLANC, his [Joseph LEBLANC's] sister, age 11, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 26th Family on the embarkation list & the 27th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with 3 brothers & a sister; BRDR, 2:365, 472 (ASM-2, 1), the record of her first marriage, calls her Magdalena LE BLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says all parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Ysaac HÉBERT & Ambrosio HÉBERT; BRDR, 3:362, 547 (ASM-2, 196), the record of her second marriage, calls her Marie Magdalena LEBLANC "of parish of Bangor in Belle Isle, wid. Juan Bautista[sic] HÉBERT," calls her husband Pedro GERBAUT "of St. Eustachio, Paris, France," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Juan GUILLOT & Joseph LEBLANC; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:348 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #775), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Madeleine LEBLANC m. d.Pierre JERBEAUX, says she died "at age 62 yrs.," but does not give her parents' names;  Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:348 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: Year: 1837), her succession record, calls her Marie Madelaine LEBLANC m. (1)d.Jean HÉBERT, m. (2)Pierre GERBEAUX, lists her children, but does not give her parents' names. 

What is a "minor premise"?  We're not talking about rhetoric & logic here. 

80.  Wall of Names, 30 (pl. 7L), calls her Magdeleine LE BLANC petite fille, & lists her with her widowed paternal grandmother & a paternal uncle; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 16-17, calls her Magdeleine LEBLANC, sa [Ursule BROD, veuve LEBLANC's] petite fille, age 11, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Magdelaine LEBLANC, her [Ursule BRAUD, widow LEBLANC's] granddaughter, age 11, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 26th Family aboard La Bergère with her widowed paternal grandmother & a paternal uncle; BRDR, 2:324, 472 (ASM-2, 6), her marriage record, calls her Magdalena Francisca LE BLANC, calls her husband Francisco GIROUERD, gives her & his parents' names, calls his mother Andrea LEBOURGEOIS, says both fathers were deceased at the time of the wedding, that her parents were "of St.-Servan, Diocese of St.-Malo in Britany, France," that his parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Pedro DASPIT & Ambrosio HÉBERT; BRDR, 6:413 (ASM-10, 33), her death/burial record, calls her Madeleine LE BLANC, "age ca. 68 years widow of François GIROIRE," but does not give her parents' names. 

If her mother was still alive at the time of her marriage in Jan 1794, where was she?  Why did she not go to LA with her daughter?  Or is the Assumption marriage record wrong when it implies that Andrée BOURGEOIS was still alive?  If Andrée had remarried in France & decided to stay there with her new husband, would she have let her 11-year-old daughter go so far away, even with the child's grandmother?  

81.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Marcel LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2540, says he was born in 1734.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 164.

82.  Wall of Names, 22, calls him Marcel LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:472 (SJA-2, 2), the record of his first marriage, calls him Marcelo LEBLANC, calls his wife Magdalena BURSUA, gives his & her parents' names, says his parents were "of Cap," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Josef MIR & Rosa RICHAR; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:602, 895-96 (SM Ch.: v.5, #218), the record of his second marriage, calls him Marcel LEBLANC, "of this parish, native of St. James Parish on the River," calls him a major son, calls his wife Marie SURETTE, "inhabitant of this parish, native of Acadie, widow of Ephrem ROBICHOT, calls her a major daughter, gives his & her parents' names, says all parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Michel MARTIN, Marcelle PATIN, Jean LANDRY, Alexandre BROUSSARD, & Léon LATIOLAIS [her son-in-law]; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:602 (SM Ct.Hse.: Succ. #110), a succession following separation, calls him Marcel LEBLANC, & says he "wants an inventory since he received a decree of separation from his wife Marie SURETTE"; BRDR, 3:544, 680 (SMI-2, 70), the record of his third marriage, calls him Marcel LEBLANC, "nat. of Maryland, widower Magdelaine BOURGEOIS, 2nd Marie SURET," gives his & his wife's parents' names & his wife's first husband's name, says both parents were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were M. MARIANNI, Denis REMONDET, & Étienne PART; BRDR, 3:354 (SMI-8, 60), probably his death/burial record, calls him Marcellin LEBLANC, "age 53," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife/wives.    

Where was Cap?  Is it the same place as Cap-Français? 

Why did he & his second wife separate?  Was the marriage annulled?

83.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:470, 474 (SJA-1, 13a), her marriage record, calls her Margueritte LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Josephe BLANCHAR & François DUHANT.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 165, 174; De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 9.

Her estimated birth year is based on a average of the ages given in the Cabanocé/St.-Jacques censuses of 1766, 1769, & 1777.  

84.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:257, 474 (SJA-1, 50a), her marriage record, calls her Margueritte LEBLANC, calls her husband Josephe DUGAS of Acadia, give her & his parents' names, says all parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Théodore DUGAS & Jean Charles COUMEAU; BRDR, 6:414 (SMI-4, 187), her death/burial record, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC, "age 91 yrs. widow Joseph DUGAS," but does not give her parents' names. 

The early LA census records in which she is found (1766, 1769, 1777, all at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques) are consistent in giving her age, so, despite what the family told the Convent priest in 1846, she probably was in her early 80s, not her early 90s, when she died.  She had been a widow for 13 years. 

85.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156. 

Was she the Marguerite LEBLANC who married Vincent-Ephrem, called Ephrem, son of Paul BABIN & Marie LEBLANC of l'Assomption, Pigiguit, at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in Apr 1768? 

86.  Wall of Names, 19, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC; BRDR, 3:545 (SGA-8, 37), probably her death/burial record, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC, "age 48, spouse Pierre HÉBERT," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 10.

Her estimated birth year is calculated from the St.-Gabriel census of 1777, which is closer to the age given in her burial record, not the Spanish report of 1767.  Whoever gave the priest her age at the time of her death missed it by a mile.  Still, she must have married young if she had a 5-year-old son in 1767.  Or was this her husband's child by a previous wife?  Is this the correct Marguerite LEBLANC?  When ages differ so dramatically in primary records, one has to wonder.

87.  Wall of Names, 20, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 4.

The Spanish report of 1767 in Voorhies, J., followed here, & the St.-Gabriel census of 1777 do not agree on her birth year.  

88.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC.  Was she the Marguerite LEBLANC who married Vincent-Ephrem, called Ephrem, son of Paul BABIN & Marie LEBLANC of l'Assomption, Pigiguit, at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in Apr 1768?

89.  Wall of Names, 14, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC veuve Pierre CLOÂTRE; BRDR, 2:11a (SGA-5, 54), her death/burial record, calls her Margarita BLANCO, "age 81, widow of Pedro CLOÂTRE, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 153; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 436.   

Her estimated birth year, parents' names, & marriage date come from White, DGFA-1, 1004.  Note the age given in the Spanish report of Feb 1768, her burial record, & its variance with White.  

90.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls her Margueritte LE BLANC, & lists her with her husband & 8 children; White, DGFA-1, 1020, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, her birth/baptismal dates, says her godparents were Joseph LEBLANC & Judith HÉBERT, but does not detail her marriages or her life during Le Grand Dérangement or in LA; BRDR, 1a(rev.):139 (SGA-2, 160), probably her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, & says her godparents were Joseph LEBLANC & Judique HÉBERT; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Duc_Guillaume.htm>, Family No. 22, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, her first husband & one of his nieces survived the crossing, but son Dominique BROS died at sea; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 731-34, Family No. 861, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 93-94, Family No. 183, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 154-55, Family No. 279, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC, sa [André TRAMPLÉ's] femme, age 48, on the embarkation list, Margarite LEBLANC, su [Andres TRAMPLE's] muger, on the debarkation list, & Marguerite LEBLANC, his [André TEMPLÉ's] wife, age 48, on the complete listings, says she was in the 2nd Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her husband & 8 children, details her second marriage, including the name of her first husband & the name of her husband's first wife, & details the baptism of son André-Joseph; BRDR, 3:545 (ASM-3, 98), her death/burial record, calls her Margarita LEBLANC, "age 79 yrs., wid. of Andrés TEMPLET," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 525; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 51, 75.  

Her birth/baptismal date & the names of her parents are speculations based on the remarkable continuity of ages given for her on the passenger list of Le Bon Papa, in the Lafourche valley censuses of 1795 & 1797, & in her burial record.  Why does White not include her marriage records, etc. in his DGFA-1?  Is he not certain that this is the Marguerite LEBLANC who married Charles BREAUX & André TEMPLET & ended up in France & LA?  White shows that none of her 11 siblings made it to LA.  Most ended up in present-day Québec & New Brunswick. 

91.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 10L), calls her Margueritte LE BLANC, & lists her with her parents & no siblings, 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]; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 554-55, Family No. 628, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marguerite-Geneviève LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, says she was goddaughter of Simon LANDRY & Marguerite BOUDROT, & that her family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 111-12, Family No. 206, calls her Marguerite [LEBLANC], gives her parents' names, & details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as their voyage to LA; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 60-61, calls her Margueritte, sa [Charles LEBLANC's] fille, age 18, on the embarkation list, & Marguerite LEBLANC, his [Charles LEBLANC's] daughter, age 18, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 4th 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 her parents & no siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 62-63, under Lista parcial de vientitres casamientos acadianos arregalados par Navarro, 20 novembre 1785 [Partial List of 23 marriages Navarro arranged on 20 November 1785], A. Marriages celebrated on 20 November 1785, calls her Margarita LEBLANC (daughter of Carlos [LEBLANC] & Magdalena GAUTREAUX)/Marguerite LEBLANC (daughter of Charles [LEBLANC] & Magdeleine GAUTROT, &, calling her Margarita LEBLANC of St.-Malo, details her marriage, says her husband was from Belle-Île-en-Mer, gives her & his parents' names, says he was in the 62nd Family aboard Le St.-Rémi, & that she "died at the hospital; of Le Saint-Rémi," but gives no date of death or burial; NOAR, 4:109, 186 (SLC, M5, 42), her marriage record, calls her Margarita LEBLANC, calls her husband Augustin DUN, says he was native of "Beril-me[n/r]", which probably means Belle-Île-en-Mer, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Vicente LLORCA & Josef MARTINEZ.

Does the notation in Hébert, D, Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 62-63, mean that she died in a hospital in New Orleans reserved for the passengers of Le St.-Rémi, or that she simply died "in the hospital" in New Orleans?  Contrary to what the Spanish official wrote in 1785 or 1786, she did not die then or there.  How else could she have been the mother of children born in Mar 1797, Jun 1799, Mar 1801, & Sep 1803, & baptized at the church in New Orleans?!  See NOAR, 6:104 (SLC, B14, 25; SLC, B14, 94), 7:115 (SLC, B14, 146; SLC, B17, 33), which several times mention her parents, so these are her children.  The Spanish hospital record of 1785/86 was flat out wrong.  Some other Marguerite LEBLANC must have died then, not this one.  

Her husband came to LA not aboard Le St.-Rémi but on a later ship, L'Amitié, the one right after Le St.-Rémi.  They probably knew one another in Nantes.  She & her husband settled at San Bernardo, south of New Orleans, where his father & brothers settled, & that is where her children were born & why they were baptized by a New Orleans priest.  

92.  Wall of Names, 41, calls her Margueritte LE BLANC; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 573-74, Family No. 647; BRDR, 2:112, 474 (ASC-2, 8), her marriage record, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC, does not give her or her husband's parents' names but says his parents "were Acadian," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Francois LANDRY & Lizabeth A. LANDRIE. 

That she was the wife of Jean-Charles BOUDREAUX is pure guesswork here.  See the footnote for his profile for details.  I have found no death/burial record for her.  My guess is that she died as a result of childbirth.  Why was she & her husband not in the Lafourche valley censuses of 1788 & 1791?

93.  Wall of Names, 46, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 132, Family No. 163, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC, says she was born c1744 in the parish of St.-Joseph of Acadie, which was Rivière-aux-Canards, gives her parents' names, details her marriage, including her husband's parents' names, & says her husband resided with his family at St.-Enogat, 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 930, her marriage record, calls her Marguerite LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says both sets of parents were deceased at the time of the marriage, gives her & his birthplace, says he was living in St.-Enogat & she in Plouër at the time of their marriage, that they received dispensation of relationship "of fourth to fourth degree on the one hand and of third to fourth degree on the other hand," that they did not know how to sign, & that the witnesses to their marriage were Germain BOUDRO, Joseph MENASSO, François-Xavier BOURG, Joseph AUCOIN, "all relatives who have declared not knowing how to sign," Germain LEMOINNE, who signed, LE MINOUS, who signed, Jean LE BLANC, who signed, & And. LOSSIEUX, who signed.  

94.  Wall of Names, 13, calls her Marie LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2536, calls her Marie-Josèphe LEBLANC; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:593 (Laf. Ch.: v.2, p.14, #38), calls her Marie Joseph LEBLANC, "spouse of dec. Athanase BRAU," says she died "at age 84 years at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Louis ARCENEAU," & that she was buried "in the parish church cemetery," but does not give her parents' names.  See also "Fort Edward, 1761-62."

95.  Wall of Names, 24, calls her Marie LE BLANC veuve Joseph RICHARD 6.  

96.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marie LE BLANC.

What happened to her?  Were she & sister Marine the same person?

97.  Wall of Names, 24, calls her Marie LE BLANC veuve Joseph RICHARD 5; White, DGFA-1, 1001.  See also Jehn, Acadians Exiles in the Colonies, 155. 

98.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marie LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:431, 474 (SGA-14, 6), her marriage record, calls her Maria LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, but gives no witnesses to her marriage; BRDR, 2:474 (SGA-8, 7, #31), her death/burial record, calls her Maria LEBLANC, "Wife of Juan Bautista LANDRY," gives her parents' names, but does not give her age at the time of her death. 

99.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marie LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:478, 578 (SJA-1, 14), her marriage record, calls her Marie LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names but not his mother's surname, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Charles BERGERON & Pierre DEMOULIN. 

Her older sister Marie-Marguerite came to LA in 1767, so it stands to reason that Marie came that year also.  They were only 2 years apart in age. 

100.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls her Marie [LE BLANC], & lists her with her parents; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 114, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Rose LEBLANC; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 4-5, calls her Marie, sa [Jean LEBLANC's] fille, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, Maria, su [Juan LEBLANC's] hijo de 15 Meses, on the debarkation list, & Marie LEBLANC, his [Jean LEBLANC's] dgtr., nursling--15 mos., on the complete listing, says she was in the 8th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents, says she was baptized in 1784 but gives no place of baptism, & calls her Marie-Rose; BRDR, 2:478, 505 (SGA-14, 36), her marriage record, calls her Marie Rose LEBLANC, calls her husband Jean Jacques LONGEPÉE, says they had to secure dispensation of 3rd degree of consanguinity in order to marry, gives her & his parents' names, says his parents were "of St.-Malo" & both deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Jean LEBLANC & Joseph LEBLANC. 

101.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls her Marie LE BLANC, & lists her with her husband & 2 sons; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls her Marie LEBLANC, sa [Jean GUÉDRY's] femme, age 50, on the embarkation list, Maria LEBLANC, su [Juan GUÉDRY's] muger, on the debarkation list, & Marie LEBLANC, his [Jean GUÉDRY's] wife, age 50, on the complete listing, says she was in the 25th Family on the embarkation list & the 26th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with her husband & 2 sons, details her son Jean GUÉDRY's marriage in LA, including her son's wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage, details her son Jacque GUÉDRY's marriage in LA but gives no marriage date or place, & says son Jacques was buried 15 Oct 1801, age 34, but gives no place of burial; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:347 (Houma Ct.Hse.: Succ. #1), her succession record, calls her Marie LEBLANC "m. Jean GUIDRY, also known as GRIVOIS."  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 53, 79, 131, 179.  

Her estimated birth year is calculated not from the age given in the passenger list of Le Beaumont but from an average of the ages found in the Lafourche valley censuses of 1791,1795, 1797, & 1798.  

102.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 8L), calls her Marie LE BLANC, & lists her with her second husband, 1 son, & 3 stepdaughters; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 79, Family No. 98; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 707-08, Family No. 829; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 95-96, Family No. 176; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 149, Family No. 269; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 30-31, calls her Marie LEBLANC, sa [Charles HENRY's] femme, age 45, on the embarkation list, Maria LEBLANC, su [Carlos HENRIQUE's] muger, on the debarkation list, & Marie LEBLANC, his [Charles HENRY's] wife, age 45, on the complete listing, says she was in the 3rd Family aboard Le Beaumont with her second husband, 1 son, & 3 stepdaughters, notes that "This family went on to Attakapas on 18 October 1785," details her second marriage, including her husband's parents' names but not her parents' names, & says son Jean-Baptist [HENRY] was born 28 Oct 1785 but gives no birthplace.

Despite the note on Le Beaumont's passenger list that her family settled in the Attakapas District, church records & a census list show that, after their short stay in New Orleans to recuperate from the voyage, they went to Baton Rouge with the majority of the passengers from their ship.

103.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls her Marie LE BLANC, & lists her with her second husband & no children, 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]; White, DGFA-1, 1010; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 287, 421 (Morlaix: St.-Martin-des-Champs), her marriage record, calls her Marie LEBLANC, says she was from St.-Charles en Acadie, which was Grand-Pré, says her husband was de l'Assomption en Acadie, which was Pigiguit, gives his but not her parents' names, & gives her first husband's name; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 56-57, calls her Marie LEBLANC, sa [Eustache TRAHAN's] femme, age 58, on the embarkation list, & Marie LEBLANC, his [Eustache TRAHAN's] wife, age 58, on the complete listing, says she was in the 2nd 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 & no children, & details her marriage, including his but not her parents' names, & says she & her husband were married in 1766 but gives no place of marriage.  

What happened to her & her husband in LA?  Did they even survive the crossing from France to LA?  Unfortunately, the debarkation list for Le St.-Rémi has not survived.  Did they die soon after reaching the colony?  Her father was the famous notary of Grand-Pré described in Longfellow's Evangeline.  She was one of her father's 22 children, one of 17 by his second wife.  Did she have any children?  She seems to have been the only one of her many siblings who emigrated to LA. 

104.  Wall of Names, 38 (pl. 10L), calls her Marie LE BLANC, & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings, 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]; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 120, Family No. 220, calls her Marie [LEBLANC], & details her 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 Marie, sa [Pre LEBLANC's] fille, age 22, on the embarkation list, & Marie LEBLANC, his [Pierre LEBLANC's] daughter, age 22, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 3rd 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 his parents & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:474, 542 (SJA-2, 4), probably her marriage record, calls her Maria LEBLANC, calls her husband Francisco MIGUEL, does not give her or his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Pablo ÉBER & Anastasia MICHEL.  

Thanks to sloppy record keeping by the priest at St.-Jacques in the late 1780s, her marriage to François MICHEL of St.-Jacques is an educated guess.  There were non-Acadian MICHELs at St.-Jacques at this time, but I am confident that Marie's husband was an Acadian.  Pierre MICHEL of Port-Royal came to Cabanocé/St.-Jacques from St.-Domingue, today's Haiti, in 1765, after his wife & parents had died in Haiti.  He remarried to Marie LÉGER, & they had a son named François who was born at St.-Jacques in c1768.  See De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 15.  One of the witnesses to Marie LEBLANC's marriage was Anastasie MICHEL, probably daughter of Pierre MICHEL & Marie LÉGER, who had an older brother named François.

Marie's younger sister Geneviève also married an Acadian MICHEL, but Geneviève's husband was a fellow exile born in France, not in LA, & was thus a distant cousin of sister Marie's husband François.  

105.  Wall of Names, 41, calls her Marie LE BLANC femme Jean DAIGLE; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 46, Family No. 90, calls her Marie LEBLANC, says she was born in c1758 in Bristol, England, gives her parents' names, & details her marriage.  See also

106.  Wall of Names, 22, calls her Marie LE BLANC. 

I have found her in no other source.  Her parents' names come from the profile of brother Pierre.

107.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marie LE BLANC 2.  I have found her in no other source.

108.  Wall of Names, 22, calls her Marie-Angelique LE BLANC; NOAR, 2:177 (SLC, B5, 82), her baptismal record, calls her Marie-Angélique LEBLANC, gives his parents' names, her birth date but not her birthplace, & says her godparents were Jeury DETOUR, "merchant in this city," & Marie-Angélique RIVOIL. 

She was born either aboard ship or at Cap-Français, St.-Dominque, today's Haiti, where her family transshipped on the voyage from Halifax to New Orleans. 

What happened to her in LA?  Was she a victim of the epidemic that killed dozens of Teche valley Acadians in the summer & fall of 1765?  The epidemic killed her mother that Nov. 

109.  Wall of Names, 30 (pl. 7R), calls her Marie [LE BLANC], & lists her with her parents & a brother; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 118, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Anne LEBLANC; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 20-21, calls her Marie, sa [Olivier LEBLANC's] fille, age 3, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie LEBLANC, his [Olivier LEBLANC's] daughter, age 3, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 40th Family aboard La Bergère with her parents & a brother; BRDR, 2:169, 474 (SJO-3, 32), her marriage record, calls her Maria LEBLANC, calls her husband Jose BURKE, gives her & his parents' names, calls her mother Marie EBER, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Mr. BERNARD & Vandelino PIROTH. 

Her husband was an Acadian BOURG/BOURQUE, not an Anglo BURKE.  He had come to LA aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the 7 Ships from France. 

110.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Blanche LE BLANC, & lists her with her husband, 2 children, & her husband's female cousin; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 702-03, Family No. 822, calls her Marie-Blanche LEBLANC, says she was born in c1749 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, & says she was married in c1762 but gives no place of marriage; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 148, Family No. 267, calls her Blanche LEBLANC, says she was born in c1749, does not give her parents' names, says that she was married in c1764 but gives no place of marriage, provides the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of a daughter & 3 sons, details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s & their voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Blanche LEBLANC, sa [Pierre RICHARD's] femme, age 46, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Blanche LEBLANC, his [Pierre RICHARD's] wife, age 46, on the complete listing, says she was in the 19th Family aboard La Bergère with her husband, 2 children, & her husband's female cousin, & details her marriage but does not give the names of hers or her husband's parents.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 41, 62, 172.

Her birth year is a compromise of the ages given for her on the passenger list of La Bergère & in the Lafourche valley censuses of 1788, 1791, & 1795, not in Robichaux's studies of the Acadian in France.  

111.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6L), calls her Marie [LE BLANC], & lists her with her parents & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 287, 568; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 68, Family No. 137; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 116-17, Family No. 214; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Marie, sa [Joseph LEBLANC's] fille, age 17, on the embarkation list, Maria, su [Joef LEBLANC's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Marie LEBLANC, his [Joseph LEBLANC's] daughter, age 17, on the complete listing, & says s he was in the 1st Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her parents, 3 siblings, & widowed step-grandmother; BRDR, 2:112, 476 (SGA-14, 9), her marriage record, calls her Maria Francisca LE BLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says her parents were "of Acadia," but gives no witnesses to her marriage; BRDR, 3:549 (SGA-8, 69), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Françoise LEBLANC, "age 48, wid.

113.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Marie-Geneviève [LE BLANC], & lists her with her widowed mother & brother; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 567-69, Family No. 641b; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 22-23, calls her Marie-Geneviève, sa [Natalie PITRE, veuve LEBLANC's] fille, age 15, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie-Geneviève LEBLANC, her [Natalie PITRE, widow LEBLANC's] daughter, age 15, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 46th Family aboard La Bergère with her widowed mother & brother; BRDR, 2:137, 476 (SJA-2, 30 & 31), her marriage record, calls her Marie Genovefa LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says her parents were "of St.-Malo," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Juan Bap. BOURGEOIS, Juan Luis BOURGEOIS, & Juan BERRY; BRDR, 6:408 (SMI-4, 175), her death/burial record, calls her Geneviève LE BLANC, "age 64 yrs. widow of Pierre BOURGEOIS," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 123, which grossly understates her age in Jan 1798. 

She was 74, not 64, years old when she died. 

114.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Marie-Josèphe LE BLANC, & lists her with her mother & sister; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 12-13, calls her Marie-Josèphe LEBLANC, sa [Marie AU COING, femme de Michel LEBLANC's] fille, age 25, on the embarkation list, Marie Josfa LEBLANC, on the debarkation list, & Marie-Josèphe LEBLANC, her [Marie AUCOIN, wife of Michel LEBLANC's] daughter, age 25, on the complete listing, says she was in the 4th Family aboard La Bergère with her mother & sister, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to her & her family after they reached LA; BRDR, 2:306-07, 476 (SJA-2, 2), her marriage record, calls her Marie Josepha LEBLANC, "born in England," calls her husband Carlos GODÉ, gives her & his parents' names, calls her mother Maria COA, says his parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Juan GODÉ & Francisca UBRE.   

Since she received the implements from the Spanish & not her mother, this may mean that her mother died either on the voyage over from France or in New Orleans soon after they disembarked. 

115.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8R), calls her Marie-Josèphe [LE BLANC], & lists her with her parents, a brother, & a female paternal cousin; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 117, Family No. 216, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Josèphe LEBLANC, does not gives her godparents' names, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls her Marie-Josèphe, sa [Moïse LEBLANC's] fille, age 3, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie-Josèphe LEBLANC, his [Moïse LEBLANC's] daughter, age 3, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 24th Family on the embarkation list of Le Beaumont with her parents, a brother, & a female paternal cousin.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 503.

What happened to her in LA?

116.  Wall of Names, 22, calls her Marie-Louise LE BLANC; NOAR, 2:177 (SLC, B5, 82), her baptismal record, calls her Marie-Louise LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, her birth date but not her birthplace, & says her godparents were Philippe MARIGNY & Marie-Louis[e] DAUBERVILLE.  See also De Ville, Attakapas Post Census, 1771, 14; Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 251.

What happened to her in LA? 

117.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Madeleine LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:429, 472 (SJA-1, 47), the record of her first marriage, calls her Magdelaine LEBLANC, provides 2 dates for the wedding--23 Feb 1773 & 23 Feb 1778--gives her & her husband's parents' names, says "both parties of Acadia," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Maturin SAVOY & Joseph LEBLANC; BRDR, 2:472 (ASC-2, 9), the record of her second marriage, calls her Magdalina LEBLANC, calls her husband Henry ROBICEAU, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witness to her marriage was Jean LAFORETRY; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:346 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: Year 1803), her succession inventory, calls her Magdalena LEBLANC m. Henrique ROBICHO & was filed at what became the Interior/Lafourche Interior/Lafourche Parish courthouse; BRDR, 2:414, 472 (ASM-2, 76), the record of her third marriage, calls her Magdalena LEBLANC, widow of Henrique ROBICHAUX, calls her husband Santiago LAMOTHE of Bordeaux, France, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Ambroise HÉBERT & Simon DUGAST; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:232 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: year 1842), her succession inventory record, calls her Magdelaine LEBLANC m. d.Jacques LAMOTHE or LAMOTTE.   See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 2.

Her first name is found only in the Ascension census of 1770.  Not even Arsenault lists it.  See his Généalogie, 2538. 

The later date for her first marriage is used.  She probably would not have married at age 15.  Besides, the Ascension census of 1777 shows that she was still living with her widowed mother. 

Evidently she had her property inventoried before she remarried again in Jan 1803.  She probably had accumulated a substantial amount of property during her 2 marriages. 

She would have been about age 84 & a widow, again, when her succession inventory was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse in Jul 1842. 

118.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Madeleine LEBLANC orpheline, & lists her singly; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2488, profile of Anselme FOREST in the LA section, calls his wife Marie-Madeleine LEBLANC, daughter of Simon LEBLANC & Élisabeth LEBLANC, & says they were married at Donaldsonville (which was Ascension) on 7 Feb 1774; BRDR, 2:292, 471 (ASC-1, 126), her marriage record, calls her Magdelaine LEBLANC, calls her parents Simon LEBLANC & Élisabet LEBLANC, gives her husband's parents' names & says they were "Acadians," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Abraham LANDRY & Joseph LEBLANC; BRDR, 3:544 (ASC-4, 86), her death/burial record, calls her Magdelaine LEBLANC, "age 55 yrs., of Acadia, wid. of Ancelme FORET," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 176; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 5. 10. 

The Newton, MD, where she was counted in Jul 1763 was the Newtown on the upper Eastern Shore, near Chestertown, in present-day Kent County, not the Newtown in today's Charles County near Port Tobacco.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

Her marriage to Anselme is based on the process of elimination.  There was a young couple in the area named Simon LEBLANC & Élisabeth LEBLANC who were not married until Sep 1772, so this could not have been her parents.  There must have been another couple with those exact names who lived in Acadia.  We shall wait for Stephen White's DGFA-2 to see. 

Arsenault, p. 2491, says the orphan living with Amand GAUTREAUX at St.-Jacques in 1769 was Madeleine GAUDET, born in 1755.  Bourgeois, cited above, gives only the orphan's first name, Magdelaine, age 14.  It can be safely assumed, however, that the "cousin Magdelaine LEBLANC", age 15, living with the same family at Ascension in 1770 was Marie-Madeleine LEBLANC, not a Madeleine GAUDET who probably did not exist.  Note that Madeleine was living with the GAUTREAUXs in MD as early as Jul 1763.  Who knows where Arsenault got his information. 

119.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marie-Madeleine LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:45, 478 (SJA-1, 46a), the record of her first marriage, calls her Marie-Magdelaine LEBLANC of Acadia, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says her parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Maturin LANDRY, Cyprien BABIN, Jean LANDRY & Joseph LANDRY; BRDR, 2:211, 471 (SGA-14, 16), the record of her second marriage, calls her Madeline LEBLANC, widow of Estevan BABIN, calls her husband Juan Pedro CULERE, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of Baltimore" & his "of Nantes, Brittany, Parish of Similien, France," & that the witnesses to her marriage were "her parents," Joseph RICHARD, & Pedro ALLAIN; BRDR, 3:102, 550 (SGA-14, 95), the record of her third marriage, calls her Marie Madelaine LEBLANC, "wid. Jean Pierre DULAIRE," calls her husband Louis BIVEN, "widower Félicité LAPLANTE, of Québec, Canada," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Grégoire BABIN, Pierre DUPUY, & Isaac BABIN; BRDR, 4:358 (SGA-8, 124), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Madeleine LEBLANC, "age 66 yrs., wid. Pierre CULER," but does not give her parents' names or mention her third husband. 

Why doesn't her burial record mention her third husband?  They had been married for 13 years--unless the marriage was annulled. 

120.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls her Marie-Madeleine veuve d'Isidore TRAHAN, & lists her with 5 children; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 96, Family No. 187, calls her Marie-Magdeleine LEBLANC, says she was born c1731 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, says her husband was born c1732 but gives no birthplace nor his parents' names, says he was a laborer, that they married c1752 but gives no place of marriage, includes the baptismal record of son Alexis-Romain TRAHAN, baptized 1 Mar 1774, St.-Jean L'Evangeliste, Châtellerault, Vienne, godson of Alexis GAUTROT & Hélène DUMONT, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 162-63, Family No. 293, calls her Marie-Madeleine LEBLANC, says she was born c1731 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, says her husband was born c1732 but gives no birthplace nor his parents' names, says he died age 50 & was buried 28 Aug 1782, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Rosalie TRAHAN, baptized 5 Nov 1776, St.-Jacques, Nantes, & daughter Anne-Olive TRAHAN, baptized 8 Feb 1778, St.-Jacques, Nantes, died age 5 & buried 21 Sep 1783, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 40-41, does not include her on the embarkation list, calls her Magdalena LEBLANC, viuda TRAHAM, on the debarkation list, & Magdelaine LEBLANC, widow TRAHAN, no age given, on the complete listing, says she was in the 47th Family aboard Le Beaumont with 5 children, details her marriage but gives no parents' names or place of marriage, & says son Alexis-Romain TRAHAN was born in 1774 but gives no birthplace, son Jean-Baptiste TRAHAN was born 8 Feb 1766 but gives no birthplace, daughter Magdalen TRAHAN died 7 Jul 1764 but gives no place of death, & son Paul-Isadore TRAHAN was born 31 Mar 1764 but gives no birthplace; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:451 (SM Ch.: v.4, #386), her death/burial record, calls her Magdeline LEBLANC, "m. to Michel THRAHANT (TRAHAN)," but does not give her parents' names. 

Why are she & her 5 children missing from the embarkation list of Le Beaumont?  Could the entire family have been stowaways?  Not likely.  

When did she move to the Attakapas District?  Did she follow a married child there?

121.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Marie LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2511, profile for her husband in the LA section, calls her Marie-(Marguerite) LEBLANC, & says they married in c1762 but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 3:546 (SJO-4, 43), her burial record, calls her Maria Josefa LEBLANC, "age 76 yrs., wid. of Francisco HEBERRE," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 158; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 432; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 3.

Where does Arsenault get Marie-Marguerite as her name?  The marriage record of son Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, dated 18 May 1785, in BRDR, 2:362 (SGA-5, 32), calls her Marie LEBLANC, as does the marriage record of son Bénoni HÉBERT, dated 7 Dec 1793, in BRDR, 2:356 (SGA-14, 20, #69).  The marriage record of son Charles HÉBERT, dated 28 Dec 1787, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:406-07 (SM Ch.: v.4, #10), calls her Marie BLAIR.  However, the marriage record of youngest son Jacques HÉBERT, dated 21 May 1804, in BRDR, 3:427 (SJO-3, 41), calls her ... Maria Josefa HÉBERT, so Arsenault is ignored here. 

The age given for her in the Spanish report of 1767 fits better than the one given for her in the St.-Gabriel census of 1777.  Still, it misses by a mile the estimated birth year provided by the age in her burial record. 

122.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marguerite LE BLANC orpheline, & lists her singly; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 172, & Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 425, the record of her first marriage, calls her Marguerite & Margueritte LE BLANC & calls her husband Germain BERGERON; BRDR, 2:307-08, 473 (ASM-2, 22), the record of her second marriage, calls her Margarita LEBLANC, widow of Germain BERGERON, gives her & her husband's parents' names & his first wife's names, says all parents were "of Acadia" & that his were "res. St. James," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph LEBLANC & Henry THIBODAUX; BRDR, 3:545 (ASM-3, 43), her death/burial record, calls her Margarita LEBLANC, "age 55 yrs., married to Josef GUADET," but does not give her parents' names.

One of the witnesses to her second marriage was a future governor of LA. 

123.  Not in Wall of Names.  Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 171, & Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 425, the record of her first marriage, calls her Marie-Marthe LEBLANC, & calls her husband Jacques LACHAUSEÉ/LACHANCE; BRDR, 2:479 (ASC-1, 186d), her death/burial record, calls her Martha LEBLANC, "age 34 years & spouse of Pablo BRAUD, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Bourgeois, p. 174; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 6, 17.

Why is such a well-documented Acadian immigrant not on the Acadian Memorial's Wall of Names? 

124.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her M-Marthe-Elisabeth LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2538, says that Étienne LEBLANC & Élisabeth BOUDREAUX had a daughter named Marthe, born 1763, & another daughter named Marie, born in 1765; NOAR, 2:177 (SLC, B5, 110), her baptismal record, calls her Marie-Marthe-Élisabeth LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, her birth date but not her birthplace, & says her godparents were Joseph MEREAU & Élisabet SANS CHANCHGREN; BRDR, 2:469, 488 (ASC-1, 149), the record of her first marriage, calls her Martha LEBLANC, calls her husband Santiago LE CONTE, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of Acadia" & his "of Roux in Normandy," & says the witnesses to her marriage were Francisco MOLLERE & Jérôme LEBLANC; BRDR, 2:478, 637 (ASC-2, 9), the record of her second marriage, calls her Marie-Marte LEBLANC, does not mention her first husband, calls her husband Jean-Baptiste ROBICEAU, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witness to his marriage was Jean LAFORETRY.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 165.  

She was born probably on the voyage from Halifax to New Orleans.  Her family transshipped at Cap-Français, Haiti, so she may have been born there if not aboard ship. 

She had a son by her first husband named Jacques, fils.  See the boy's baptismal record, dated 12 Sep 1784, in BRDR, 2:488 (ASC-1, 115).

125.  Wall of Names, 22 (pl. 4R), calls her Marie-Rose LE BLANC, & lists her with her parents & a brother; BRDR, 2:318, 477 (SJA-2, 1), her marriage record, calls her Maria Rose LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says "parents [names] supplied from baptismal record," & that the witnesses to her marriage were Francisco MIGUEL & Ana GOTRO; BRDR, 7:325 (SMI-4, 214), her death/burial record, calls her Marie LEBLANC, "age 73 yrs., spouse Louis GAUTREAUX," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, . 

The Cabanocé census of Sep 1769 hints that she was born early that year.  The age given in her burial record gives her an estimated birth year of c1778, about a decade too late. 

She was probably born too late to be on this list, but, for some reason, Wall of Names includes her with the rest of her family.  If her family did not reach LA in 1766, when did they get there?

She was one of the last Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

126.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls her Marie-Rose [LE BLANC], & lists her with her parents & 5 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 556-57, Family No. 629, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Rose LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, says she was goddaughter of Augustin LEBLANC & Francoise BENOIST, & that her family resided at St.-Servan from 1762-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 66-67, Family No. 134, calls her Marie-Rose [LEBLANC], & details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 112-13, Family No. 207, calls her Marie-Rose [LEBLANC], & details her family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as their voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 54-55, calls her Marie-Rose, sa [Charles LEBLANC's] fille, age 21, on the embarkation list, & Marie-Rose LEBLANC, his [Charles LEBLANC's] daughter, age 21, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 53rd Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her parents & 5 siblings; BRDR, 2:128, 477 (ASM-2, 7), her marriage record, calls her Maria Rosa LE BLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says her parents were from St.-Servan, Diocese of St.-Malo in Brittany, France, that his parents were from St.-Coulon, Diocese of Dole in France, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Thodoro BOURQUE [probably his father] & Ambrosio HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:348 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #495), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Rose LEBLANC m. Théodore BOURG, says she died "at age 68 yrs.," but does not give her parents' names; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:348 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: Year: 1833), her sale of property record, calls her Marie Rose LEBLANC m. Théodore  BOURG, lists her children, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 501.

127.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marie-Rose LE BLANC, & lists her singly; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 172, & Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 425, her marriage record, calls her Marie-Rose & Marie-Rozalie LE BLANC. 

Did she come to LA from Halifax in 1765, or from MD in 1766?  Her marriage at Cabanocé makes it unlikely that she came from MD in 1767 or 1768. 

128.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Marine LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:48, 478 (ASC-1, 129), the record of her first marriage, calls her Marine LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says his parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Simon LEBLANC, Étienne BIJEAUD, & Isaac LEBLANC; BRDR, 2:466, 479 (ASC-1, 151 & 152), the record of her second marriage, calls her Marine LEBLANC, widow of Josef BABEIN, gives her husband's first wife's name but not any parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph LEBLANC & Isaac LEBLANC; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:603 (SM Ch.: v.4, #708), her death/burial record, calls her Marine LEBLANC, "from Maryland, spouse of Gilles LEBLANC, living at Fausse Pointe, says she died "at age about 53 yrs. at her home," that she was buried "in the parish cemetery," does not give her parents' names, & says her burial record was signed by Nicolas LEBLANC [her son] & Pierre CUVELIER; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:602 (SM Ct.Hse.: Succ. #104), her succession record, calls her Marie LEBLANC, "wid. of[sic] Gille LEBLANC," but does not give her parents' names or list any children. 

One wonders if she & sister Marie were the same person, but Wall of Names lists them separately.

Her second husband Gilles was still alive when she died, so the parish clerk who recorded her succession record probably meant to say "widower is Gilles LEBLANC." 

129.  Wall of Names, 10, calls her Marine LE BLANC veuve Joseph BABIN 4; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, Family No. 42, 33-34, calls her Marinne LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, birth date & place, details her marriage, gives the names, birth/baptismal dates & places of 11 of their children, says that the family "disembarked at St. Malo from England on May 23, 1763 from the ship, La Dorothée," that the family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-65, went to Belle-Île-en-Mer in 1765, remained there until 1773, were living at Loqueltas, parish of Sauzon, on 10 Mar 1767, & returned to St.-Servan in 1773; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 554, calls her Marie LEBLANC; BRDR, 2:478 (ASC-4, 4, #7), probably her death/burial record, calls her Marina LEBLANC, age 55 years, but does not give her parents' names or mention a husband. 

Her husband, Joseph, son of Claude BABIN & Marguerite DUPUIS, was born at Grand-Pré on 21 Aug 1734.  Evidently he, like her, was exiled to VA in 1755 & deported to England in the spring of 1756.  They married at Southampton the following Nov.  When & where did he die?  How did she & her children end up at Île St.-Pierre by Oct 1788, when they left for LA?  Were they among the Acadian exiles in France who chose to go to that island before 1785?  How was she kin to either Joseph GRAVOIS or his wife, Marie-Madeleine BOURG, with whom she & her children traveled to LA in late 1788? 

She and her BABIN children were among the last Acadians to emigrate to LA & were among the only ones who came to that colony directly from greater Acadia. 

She was only age 53 when she died.  Evidently she never remarried. 

130.  Wall of Names, 30 (pl. 7L), calls her Marthe  LE BLANC, & lists her with her husband & 4 children; BRDR, 1a(rev.):147 (SGA-2, 141), her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marthe LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, says her godparents were Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC & Anne BOURQUE, & that the father of the child signed the birth record; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 557-59, Family No. 631, calls her Marthe LEBLANC, gives her parents' names, her exact birth & baptismal dates, & says her godparents were Jean-Baptiste LEBLANC & Anne BOURG; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 538-39, Family No. 607, calls her Marthe LEBLANC, says she was born in c1736 but gives no birthplace, says she married in c1761 but gives no place of marriage, says she was with her husband & their oldest son aboard L'Ambition when it disembarked at St.-Malo from England on 22 May 1763, & says the family lived at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 108, Family No. 200, calls her Marthe LEBLANC, says she was born in c1736 but gives no birthplace, says she married in c1764 but gives no place of marriage, provides the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Anne-Suzanne, baptized 23 Jul 1776, St.-Jacques, Nantes, & son Pierre-Louis, died age 3, buried 22 Sep 1776, St.-Jacques, 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, 16-17, calls her Marthe LEBLANC, sa [Pierre LANDRY's] femme, age 49, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marthe LEBLANC, his [Pierre LANDRY's] wife, age 49, on the complete listing, says she was in the 28th Family aboard La Bergère with her husband & 4 children, details her marriage, including the names of her husband's parents but not her parents, does not give a place of marriage, & says that daughter Anne-Suzanne was baptized in 1776 but gives no place of baptism, & son Jean-Raphael was born in 1768 but gives no birth place; BRDR, 4:360 (ASM-3, 151), her death/burial record, calls her Marte LEBLANC, "age 95 yrs., wid. of Pierre LANDRY," & gives her parents' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 40, 62, 97, 143, 172.

Her burial record cinches her identity by giving her parents' names--Glode LEBLANC & Jeanne DUGAS.  Since her actual birth date is known, we can see that she was actually 87, not 95, when she died.  Remember, family members, not documents, provided the age of a deceased loved one for the priest who recorded his/her burial, & it was not unusual in those days before birth certificates for ages to be grossly exaggerated. 

131.  Wall of Names, 21, calls him Mathurin LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:479, 692 (SJA-1, 47a), his marriage record, calls him Maturin LEBLANC, calls his wife Rosalie THERRIO, gives his & her parents' names, says "both parties of Acadia," that his father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Éstienne LEBLANC & Joseph MELANZON; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:349 (Houma Ct. Hse.: Succ. #16 1/2), his succession inventory record, calls him Mathurin LEBLANC & gives no other information.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 165, 174; De Ville, Acadian Coast, 1779, 16, 32; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 2, 10, 50, 74.  

His estimated birth year is an average of the ages given in the various censuses in which he is found & in Arsenault, Généalogie, 2542, his father's profile in the LA section, which says he was born in c1754, too early in light of the census data.  

Arsenault calls his bride Natalie, but Wall of Names, 25, calls her Marie-Rose. 

Who are the adults in his household at Assumption in 1795?  A nephew & a niece?  Cousins?  None of his siblings bore those names.

132.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8R), calls him Moïse LE BLANC, & lists him with his first wife, 2 children, & a female cousin; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 565-66, Family No. 639; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 567-68; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 115, Family No. 212, calls him Moyse LEBLANC, gives his parents' names, his birth date & place, but does not give his godparents' names; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 117, Family No. 216, calls him Moyse LEBLANC, gives his birth date & place, his parents' names, details his first marriage, saying that he was "resident since several years in the Parish of Saint-Martin of Chantenay" when he married, gives his first wife's parents' names & the details of her residence in Chantenay, provides the birth/baptismal records of daughter Marie-Josèphe, baptized 15 Jan 1782 at St.-Martin, Chantenay, & son Jean-Martin, baptized 11 Nov 1783, St.-Martin, Chantenay, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 36-37, calls him Moïse LEBLANC, califat, age 24, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Moïse LEBLANC, calker, age 24, on the complete listing, says he was in the 24th Family on the embarkation list of Le Beaumont with his first wife, 2 children, & a female cousin, & details his first marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 2:87, 479 (ASC-2, 1), the record of his second marriage, calls him Moïse LE BLANC, gives no parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Eusthachos BERTRAND, Joseph GUIENNES, & Francois Bautista BOUDREAUX.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 503; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 46.

Why was he not on the debarkation list for Le Beaumont?  His second marriage & the Ascension census of 1788 show that he settled in LA.  And, according to Wall of Names, he was the only Moïse LEBLANC who emigrated to the colony.

133.  Wall of Names, 30 (pl. 7R), calls him Olivier LE BLANC, & lists him with his first wife & 2 children; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 20-21, calls him Olivier LEBLANC, menuisier, age 38, on the embarkation list, Olivier LEBLANC, on the debarkation list, & Olivier LEBLANC, woodworker, age 38, on the complete listing, says he was in the 40th Family aboard La Bergère with his wife & 2 children, details his first marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names but does not give the marriage place, says that son Pierre-Olivier was baptized in 1784 but does not give the place of baptism, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to him & his family after they reached LA; BRDR, 2:480, 628 (ASC-2, 35), the record of his second marriage, calls him Olivier LE BLANC, calls his wife Rosa RICHARD, gives his & her parents' names, says his wife's parents were Acadians, does not give his first wife's name, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Carlos BROUSARD & Jean PUJOL; BRDR, 3:553 (SJO-4, 37), his death/burial record, calls him Olivier LEBLANC, "unmarried," gives his parents' names & his age at the time of his death.

What does "unmarried" mean in his burial record?  That he was a widower again?  He had children by his first wife, but one looks thru the Baton Rouge diocesan church records in vain for a child by his second wife.  Was his second wife still alive in 1808?  Is she was, then Olivier may have secured an annulment to their marriage.  Her childlessness could have been grounds for an annulment.  She was 35 when she married him & had not been married before.

134.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Osite LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:48, 480 (SJA-1, 13a), her marriage record, calls her Osithe LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph BABIEN, Marie LANDRY, Joseph LANDRY, Louis LECONTE, Jean LANDRY, Marcelle LEBLANC, & Charles GODÉ; BRDR, 3:553 (ASC-4, 115), her death/burial record, calls her Ozite LEBLANC, "age 65 yrs., nat. of Acadia, wid. Joseph BABIN," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156. 

135.  Wall of Names, 21, calls her Ozite LE BLANC; BRDR, 2:464, 480 (SJA-1, 46), her marriage record, calls her Osite LEBLANC, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says her father's name is illegible in the record, calls her mother Isabelle GOUDERAU, that both sets of parents were Acadians, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Maturin LEBLANC & Joseph LANDRY; BRDR, 3:553 (ASC-4, 79), her death/burial record, calls her Ozite LEBLANC, "wid. Étienne LEBLANC," but does not give her parents' names.   

136.  Wall of Names, 22, calls him Paul LE BLANC.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156. 

Who were his wife's parents?  What was her actual name?  She is called Agnès in the baptismal records of daughter Apolonie, sons Augustin, Laurent, another Laurent, & Paul, & grandson Jacques-Evariste LEBLANC, dated 18 Aug 1773, 28 Apr 1776, 25 Oct 1778, 7 Apr 1781, & 19 Apr 1802, in BRDR, 2:460, 471, 481, 483 (SJA-1, 20a, 30a, 53, 58; SJA-3, 235), & son Jacque's marriage record, dated 23 Apr 1792, in BRDR, 2:483 (SJA-2, 14).  So was her name Anne-Agnès or Agnès-Anne, or just Agnès?  Yet the censuses of 1769 & 1777 favor Anne. 

137.  Wall of Names, 34 (pl. 8R), calls him Paul LE BLANC, & lists him with his wife, 2 daughters, & a niece; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 572-73, Family No. 646; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 68-69, Family No. 139, calls him Paul LEBLANC, says he was born c1743, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, including his wife's parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Marie-Anne, born 19 Mar 1773, baptized 19 Mar 1773, St.-Servan, goddaughter of Isidore TRAHAN & Euphrosine BARRILLOT, died age 17 months & buried 23 Aug 1774, St.-Jean L'Evangeliste, Châtellerault, & son Silvestre, baptized 28 Apr 1775, Cenan, Viennre, godson of Simon MAZEROLE & Marguerite DAIGLE, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 118-19, Family No. 218, calls him Paul LEBLANC, says he was born c1743 but gives no birthplace, that he was a day-laborer, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, including his wife's parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Paul, baptized 27 Nov 1776, St.-Similien, Nantes, died age 8 months & buried 29 Jul 1777, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, son Sylvestre, died  age 2 1/2  & buried 25 Sep 1777, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, daughter Geneviève, baptized 9 Jan 1779, St.-Jacques, Nantes, died age 19 mos. & buried 10 Aug 1780, St.-Martin, Chantenay, daughter Adélaïde, baptized 14 Oct 1780, St.-Martin, Chantenay, died age 3 1/2 & buried 28 Mar 1784, St.-Martin, Chantenay, daughter Marguerite, baptized 13 May 1782, St.-Martin, Chantenay, daughter Anne, died age 14 & buried 13 Jan 1784, St.-Martin, Chantenay, & daughter Rosalie, baptized 16 Mar 1785, St.-Martin, 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, 38-39, calls him Paul LEBLANC, charpentier, age 38, on the embarkation list, Pablo LEBLANC, on the debarkation list, & Paul LEBLANC, carpenter, age 38, on the complete listing, says he was in the 33rd Family on the embarkation list & the 34th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with his wife, 2 daughters, & a niece, & details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:112; Kinnaird, "Problems of Frontier Defense, 1792-94," 95.

138.  Wall of Names, 22, calls him Pierre LE BLANC 3.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 156. 

139.  Wall of Names, 22, calls him Pierre LE BLANC; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2539, calls him Pierre LEBLANC, says he was born in c1755, gives his parents' names, say
