Biography

Pierre was born about 1736 in Acadia. He was the son of Pierre Pitre and Agathe Doucet.

He married Marguerite Bourg, daughter of Charles Jacques Bourg and Anne "Titan" Boudrot around 1756 on Isle Saint-Jean.[1]

Censuses:

  • 1752 Chipoudy [2]
  • 1755 Chipoudy [3]

He passed away between 1763 and 1775:

"In 1752 at Chipoudy, about three years before the mass deportations of Acadians from Nova Scotia, we find Pierre Pitre with “his wife, 4 boys & 3 girls.” [...] The family, at this point, probably consisted of Pierre 53, wife Agathe 42, and children Marguerite 25, Jean Baptiste 20, Marie 18, Pierre 16, Catherine 13, and Francois 6.

Marguerite made it to Louisiana where she remarried Charles Guilbeau in St. Martinville in 1775. If Pierre survived the trip I can find no evidence of any surviving offspring." [4]

    {Addendum: According to Acadians in Halifax and on Georges Island, 1755 – 1764 by Ronnie-Gilles LeBlanc, the Pierre Pitre imprisoned at Halifax in 1763 with his wife and total family of 6 is this Pierre. Mr. LeBlanc acknowledges the help of Stephen A. White, who reviewed the text and the table of Acadian families who spent time in Halifax and on Georges Island between 1759 and 1764, and for Mr. White's thoughtful advice and providing access to the manuscript of the genealogical notes for Part 2 of his Dictionnaire.}
