Biography

Abraham Comeau was born in 1679 in Port Royal, Acadie, Nouvelle-France. His parents were Pierre Comeau and Jeanne Bourg. He was the second child and fist son in this very large family of 18 children. His first census entry is in 1686 when he was age 7.[1] In 1698 he is the oldest child at home, along with 13 other siblings.[2] His parents had two more siblings after he married and left home.

He married Marguerite Pitre later in 1701 as he is still living with his parents in the 1701 census.[3] They have their own home and one daughter in 1703.[4] Together they had 13 children between 1702 and 1727.[5]

He may have ben a life long Port Royal resident as he was enumerated in the 1714 census and all their children were born there.

Marie Marguerite was buried in Annapolis Royal on July 12, 1747, written as the spouse of Abraham, not the widow, through he was not among the witnesses to her ceremony. [6] Two of their children had previous entries on the same page, but there is no entry for him on June 12 (that date removed). On Feb 10, 1749, their daughter Catherine was married. Marie was noted as deceased but Alexandre appeared to be still living.[7]

'Comeaux' is the same as 'Comeau' in Acadian History.

Comeau-2 and Commeau-10 appear to represent the same person because: I just entered the Commeau 10 when I found the same spouse.
