Text: We count Charles BOURG fils (II), his wife and their children among the Acadian families from Ile St-Jean who diappeared without a trace after 1758. After deep study on this subject, we believe that they figured among the unhappy passengers aboard one of the English transport which sank into the sea (see SHA, vol II, pp. 286-299).
Text: Navigateur, célibataire (unmarried) at home of Michel BOURG, with whom he owns a commercial boat.
