Jean Pitre is on the Wall of Names at the Acadian Memorial in St. Martinville, Louisiana Plaque 11 Right, La Ville D'Archangel arrivee le 3 Decembre 1785. Also on the plaque with him is Felicite Daigle, his wife; and six Pitre children: Charlotte Marie, Pierre, Jacques, Francoise, Felicite, & Marguerite. [1]

Francoise-Madeleine Pitre, son (or daughter?) of Acadians Jean Baptiste Pitre and Felicite Daigre, was born May 7, 1769 at Mordreux, baptized the same day (Pleudihen, C.-du-N.), sponsors: Francois Bourg and Madeleine Landry. There is some confusion as to whether this child was a son or daughter. Francois Madeleine emigrated to Louisiana with his family arriving December 3, 1785 at the port of New Orleans. [2][3]
