Marie Comeau was born about 1678. She was the daughter of Pierre Comeau and Jeanne Bourg. She was counted on the 1678 census of Port Royal. She married Claude Pitre, son of Jean and Marie Pesseley about 1696 at Port Royal. Marie Comeau, wife of Claude Pitre passed away 5 July 1707 and was buried the next day in the cemetery of St Jean Baptiste parish, Port Royal, Acadia.
Claude Pitre was born about February 1671, appearing in the 1671 census as a 9-month-old, the youngest of Jean and Marie's three children at that census. Acadia at that time was a community of about 400 people.
Over the next 20 years a relative stability existed within the colony, as they farmed, fished and traded. As relations were becoming more heated with the British, Claude married, probably at Port Royal c1696, to Marie Anne Comeau who was about eighteen. She was the oldest daughter of early Acadians Pierre Comeau, known as l'Esturgeon, and Jeanne Bourg. Having eight children over the next eleven years must have taken its toll as Marie Anne died at the age of twenty-nine only a month after their twins were born.
