    at Rivière du Ouest : Joseph Terriaud, ploughman, native of l'Acadie, aged 53 years, has been in the country two years. Married to Françoise Melançon, native of l'Acadie, aged 44 years. They have seven children, five sons and two daughters:-
    Estienne Terriaud, aged 21 years.
    Jasques, aged 15 years
    Thomas, aged 9 years
    Ambroise, aged 4 years
    Paul, aged one year.
    Margueritte Suzanne, aged 12 years
    Marie Magdeleine, aged 7 years.
    They have in live stock two oxen, two cows, one heifer, one calf, two sows, and one pig. The land upon which they are settled is situated as in the preceding case, and was given to them under similar conditions. They would be able next spring to sow about four bushels of wheat, but he leaves this locality to go to Bedecq [sic] to live, and Charles Henry, his son-in-law is coming to live on this lot.
