Exile: Resided at Plouer, Brittany, France, 1759-1773. Departed France aboard the Bergère, a 300-ton merchant vessel chartered by the Spanish government to transport Acadian exiles to Louisiana, May 12, 1785. Arrived in Louisiana, August 15, 1785.
From http://www.acadiansingray.com/: "Pierre Dugas of Cobeguit, age 57, came to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in mid-August. With him were wife Marguerite Daigle, age 60, and unmarried daughters Anne-Marie, age 23, and Marie-Victoire, age 20. Needless to say, Pierre and Marguerite had no more children in Louisiana. They settled in the Opelousas District, where Marguerite died in March 1808. She was described as a widow in her burial record, so Pierre had died before then, probably at Opelousas. Marie-Victoire married Louis, son of fellow Acadian Pierre Richard, probably at Opelousas in c1785 and died in St. Landry Parish before July 1826, when her husband remarried in Lafayette Parish..."
