Jean-Baptiste dit "Jean-Marc Pitre was born on the 28th of October 1703 at Port Royal, the second child of Marc Pitre and Jeanne Brun. On the census of 1708 taken at Cape Sable, he is Jean, age five years old. The 1714 census places the family at Port Royal, but they seemed to have moved on to the Cobequid area by the 1720’s.
About 1729 in Cobequid Jean Marc married Judith Theriot, the 18-year-old daughter of Pierre Theriot and Marie Bourg. (Eight years earlier Judith’s older sister Marguerite had married Jean Pitre, Jean Marc’s first cousin.)
The family established themselves near Cobequid for the next twenty years. But by 1752 they were known to be refugees at Aulac . The listing showed Jean Pitre, wife, 3 boys & 5 girls. They were at Gaspareau in 1754-55  and at Miramichi in 1761 with only one son.  The family was also at Camp d'Espérance, Miramichi, which was established at the end of the summer of 1756 to protect from famine and from the roundups of the British soldiers the approximately 1250 Acadians who fled there. 
In July 1762, Jean Marc (Jean Baptiste) appeared on a list of prisoners at Fort Edward with one person, likely Judith, since the following month, she was recorded on a list of prisoners as widow Jean Marc with another person.  Therefore Jean Marc died between July and August 1762 at Fort Edward, which had been built by the British in 1750 at Pisiquid (now Windsor, Nova Scotia). Date and place of Judith’s death is unknown.
"Their offspring were scattered across the continent. Son Jean Baptiste married Elisabeth Robichaud about 1752. (She died sometime after the 1755 birth of their daughter on Ile St. Jean. He married for the 2nd time to Marguerite Arseneau in 1760 at Restigouche and returned to Ile St. Jean where the majority of the Pitre/Peters families descend from their sons.) Joseph married Madeleine Darois about 1752. [The sloop Endeavor left the Chignecto area in October of 1755 destined for South Carolina. There was a Joseph Pitre on board with no wife or children listed. It was possibly this Joseph.] Francois (Modeste) married Madeleine Vincent. Both died before 1766, leaving an orphaned daughter who was raised in Louisiana. Francoise married Michel Corneau c1762 on the Iles de la Madeleine, but died within a few years. Anne Marie married Charles Robichaud, same day and place as her brother Jean Baptiste (fate unknown). Marguerite married about the same time to Joseph Martin and they traveled with Joseph Broussard’s group to Louisiana. Marie Madeleine married widower Francois Comeau, who was 40 years her senior, probably in Miramichi or in Restigouche. (They had one child and settled in St. Bernard, NS.)"
