Settling in the Attakapas District, Acadians Julien Joseph Babineaux, his brother and their parents were the progenitors of Louisiana's Babineaux family.

Charles Babineau is on the Wall of Names at the Acadian Memorial in St. Martinville, Louisiana, on Plaque 1 Left. Listed with him is his second spouse, Anne Guilbeau, and two sons, Dominque and Joseph. [1]

Julien Joseph was born c.1764, probably at Halifax just after the end of the Seven Years' War. Called Joseph, he was a son of Louis Charles BABINEAUX & his second wife Anne GUILBEAU; brother of Charles Dominique. He may have come to Louisiana with the Broussard party c.1765.

In Atakapas census, 1766, District of the Pointe, unnamed, but probably 1 of the 2 boys in the household of Carlos BABINAU; [citation needed]
In Atakapas census, 1771, unnamed, age 8, with parents & siblings; [citation needed]
In Atakapas census, 1774, unnamed, with widowed mother & siblings; [citation needed]
In Atakapas census, 1777, called Joseph, age 12, with widowed mother & siblings; [citation needed]
In Atakapas census, 1781, unnamed, with widowed mother & others; [citation needed]
On Atakapas militia list, Aug 1789, called Josef BOBINO; In Atakapas census, 1809, with 11.5 arpents frontage valued at ,000, 2 slaves; [citation needed]

He married, at age 22, Félicité CORMIER, (daughter of Joseph CORMIER and his first wife, Marguerite SONNIER of Opelousas District) c.1786; they settled at Carencro. :Known children of the marriage:

  1. Joseph, fils (1787)
  2. David (1789)
  3. Francois (1790)
  4. Julien (1792)
  5. Anastasie Terzille (1796)
  6. Jean (1801)
  7. Eugenie (1811)[2]

IF he married Marguerite Thibodeaux,[citation needed] it must have been shortly before his death, as Felicite died in 1826, and he died the following year.

He died in 1827 in Lafayette, Louisiana, and was buried the following day in the church cemetery.[3]
