Agree with your observation. The 1777 census shows two brothers: Baptiste and Jean. I have split out the two men and also added Oliver. Have you seen any church record for the marriage of this Jean Baptiste Lafleur to Eulalie Deshotel? I have only found the one Point Coupee Courthouse record that is shown above.
