SIMON-JOSEPH PITRE, son of Joseph & Anne Bourque, was born 31 Oct 1757 in Isle Saint Jean, Acadia. He was christened 30 Jul 1758 St. Pierre du Nord, Isle St. Jean, Acadia.[1]

The following is from the profile of Simon-Joseph's father Joseph Pitre Pitre-52. quoting from a letter written by Stephen White , Moncton University:

“I agree that Joseph Pitre Jr. shown at Lot 43 in 1798 was Charlotte Cormier's husband. I do not agree that the Simon Joseph Pitre born in 1757 could not have been this same Joseph Pitre Jr. But even if Simon Joseph Pitre was known as Simon, it is quite possible that Joseph Pitre and Anne Bourg had another son known as Joseph Pitre Jr. who married Charlotte Cormier. As Joseph Pitre Sr. was born in 1726, we may suppose that Anne Bourg, his wife, was born about 1730, even in the absence of records to prove it, and she might have borne children well into the 1770's. Joseph Pitre Jr. might thus easily have been a young newly-wed of twenty-five or so in 1798 and only forty-five or so when his daughter Madeleine was born in 1817.”
