  • Notes 
    • Il quitta la France le 12/08/1785 comme officier sur le Ville d'Archangel, engagé par l'Espagne pour transporter les familles acadiennes en Louisianne. Le 11/10/1785, le bateau fit escale à la Havane (Cuba). Ils reprirent la mer le 18/10/1785 et arrivèrent le 04/11/1785 à Balize, un poste sur le Mississipi. Ils n'arrivèrent à la Nouvelle Orléans que le 03/12/1785.

      Parmi les passagers du navire se trouvait Marie Victoire Bourque, qui voyageait avec ses parents, et qui allait devenir sa femme. Ils s'installèrent alors près de Baton-Rouge pour ne jamais revenir en France.

      Il est considéré comme un vétéran de la guerre d'indépendance : lors de la défaite des Anglais à Yorktown, il est enseigne sur un navire de combat. Il servit comme premier lieutenant dans le Spanish Mixed Roal Militia, La, Provincial Legion. En décembre 1804, il représenta Iberville, étant appointé par le gouvernement Claiborne dans la première législature territoriale de Louisianne.

      Rough Translation (via dictionary.com translator):
      He left France on August 12th, 1785 as officer on La Ville d'Archangel, engaged by Spain to transport the acadian families to Louisiana. On 11 Oct 1785, the boat made stopover in Havana, Cuba. They took again to the sea on 18 Oct 1785 and arrived on 4 Nov 1785 at Balize, a station on the Mississippi. They did not arrive at New Orleans until 12 Mar 1785.

      One of the passengers of the ship was Marie Victoire Bourque, who traveled with her parents, and who was going to become his wife. They settled then close to Baton-Rouge never to return to France.

      He is regarded as a veteran of the war of independence: at the time of the defeat of the English with Yorktown, he was signed on a combat ship. He was useful like first lieutenant in Spanish Mixed Roal Militia, Provincial Legion. In December 1804, he represented Iberville, being sharpened by the Claiborne government in the first territorial legislature of Louisianne.
