Death

Pierre Granger died in his early 40's, but his exact date of death is unknown. [4] Euphrosine Gautreaux is listed as his widow on the Acadian Wall of Names in Louisiana, so Pierre Granger is likely to have died in Maryland or en route to Louisiana after the Maryland census of July 7, 1763, and before 1769, when a 1769 Louisiana census identified Euphrosine as married to Pierre Landry.
