Biography

Pierre Pitre was born about 1735 in Acadie, son of Jean Baptiste Pitre and Marguerite Theriot.

Piere was listed in the 1752 census at age 18. Jean & Marguerite, both now in their fifties, were settled on the north side of Riviere du Ouest. They had three of their adult children with them and three teenagers. [1]

In 1758, during the second wave of deportations that took place on Ile Saint-Jean and Ile-Royale, the family was deported to France. They were forced aboard one of five English ships that left in the fall of 1758, and docked at Saint-Malo on 23 January 1759. Pierre was listed alone on the list of arrivals at St Malo. [2] His parents died during the crossing to France. They were probably on another ship.

Pierre passed away March 7, 1759 in St-Servan, Bretagne, France at the age of 23 years [3]
