Pierre Thibodeau is on the Wall of Names at the Acadian Memorial in St. Martinville, Louisiana Plaque 6 Left. Listed with Pierre is his wife Francoise Saulnier and four children: Adelaide, Francoise, Anne Marie and Marie Josephe.
Discussion on Parents
I could find no evidence that these parents ever immigrated to Louisiana. However, there are ample records to indicate that this woman did immigrate. The Acadian Memorial in St. Martinville publishes a booklet with all of the Acadians who immigrated to Louisiana during the time of the deportations. (late 1700s). There is only one entry for a woman named Marie Josephe Thibodeau and she is listed on the plaque with her parents Pierre Thibodeau and Francoise Saulnier. I believe these are her parents. Thibodeau-579 & Sonnier-188. Karen Theriot Reader has additional sources which agree with this but it is apparent that her birth date and location are not clearly established. Marie Josephe THIBODEAU
Marie Josèphe Thibodeau, daughter of Pierre Thibodeau and Françoise Saulnier, was only an infant when she and her family were sent into exile by the British. They immigrated to Louisiana and settled in the St. Landry Parish area. Marie Josèphe and Francois married around 1769 in Louisiana.
