Marguerite Comeau was born in Acadia in about 1696. She married Jean Baptiste Landry in Grand Pre on 17 October 1718.
She was expelled to Southampton England where she was in 1763, when the Acadians were sent to St-Malo, France. 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.
