Marguerite Comeau was born in Acadia in about 1696[1]. She married Jean Baptiste Landry in Grand Pre on 17 October 1718.[2] [3]

She was expelled to Southampton England where she was in 1763, when the Acadians were sent to St-Malo, France.[1] She was still in St-Malo at the time of the 1772 census there, but died in Nantes, France on 17 May 1779 and was buried at St-Jacques de Nantes eleven days later.[1]
