Francoise Babin, daughter of Antoine Babin & Marie Mercier, was the 10th child of 11 children born to Antoine & Marie. Francoise was born about 1681 and appears on the Port-Royal census of 1686, 5yrs; Cap-Sable 1708 25yrs. She married Jean Pitre , son of Jean & Marie Pesseley around 1698.[1] Stephen White does not give a death date; her date of death is set at after the year her last known child is thought to have been born. It could vary since Amand's birth date is also an estimate.
