Jacques Arseneau was born about 1692. He was the son of Pierre ArseneauMarie Guérin.  Stephen White does not give a location for his birth, but it is possible that it was in Beaubassin since he was listed in the census there at age 1 in 1693.  He appeared again in the censuses of 1698 , 1700 , and 1714. 
Widowed Marie was listed in the 1752 census at Malpec, Isle Saint-Jean with her two sons Alexandre and Paul.
Marie Poirier, widow of Jacques Arcenaud, native of l'Acadie, aged 50 years.
She has two sons:-
Alexander, aged 20 years.
Paul, aged 15 years.
In live stock, they have four oxen, three cows, one heifer, one calf, three wethers, three pigs, and three hens.
The land on which they are settled is situated up the Rivière du Ouest, and had been granted to the late Jacques Arcenaud by Messieurs Duchambon and Dubuisson. They have made a clearing on it where they have sown ten bushels of wheat, two bushels of peas, and one bushel of barley, and they have fallow land for the sowing of twenty bushels.
