She married Louis PItre, son of Joachin Pitre and Margaret Heloise Joseph Pitre, on 24 Jan. 1860, their marriage was recorded at St. Landry Catholic Church, Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana.[1] Louis died January 10, 1861.

Adeline and Adolphe had one child, a daughter Celestine b. Dec. 1861, who married Joseph Gonzales in 1878. There is a record for a second daughter Marie Corinne who was born in 1864 and died two years later. As it seems most likely that Adolphe died in 1862 the father of Corinne is not clear.
