In the first Acadian census in 1671, Pierre was listed as a mason, 50 years of age, and Henriette was 31 years of age. They owned 7 cattle, 6 sheep and 4 arpents of cultivated land. There were 5 children in the household, age 3 months to 10 years. In the same census, Henriette was also counted in her father-in-law's household (René Landry) at age 30.
They continued to raise their children and tend their farm in Port-Royal as shown in the censuses of 1678 and 1686.
Henriette died before the 1693 census since Pierre was listed as a widower around 72 years of age. There were only 3 children counted in the family home.
DNA. Jeanne Pelletret's mother was Perinne Bourg. The Mothers of Acadia Maternal DNA project is conducting ongoing research to verify their origins. In 2010, Stephen White reported that Perrine Bourg had an H14 haplogroup. I don't know the details re how many of her descendants were tested to support this report. Ongoing test results are also reported here. As of May 2014, 9 descendants have consistently reported an H haplogroup, indicating European origins.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Henriette by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
