  • Notes 
    • - Joseph Pitre was born on the 27th of December 1718 in Port Royal, Acadia. He was the fifth of eight children born to Claude Pitre and his second wife Anne (Jeanne) Henry. Because of his father’s first marriage he actually had a total of seven siblings at the time of his birth. Three more were to follow after Joseph. Over the next 20 years the Acadians increased rapidly in population and expanded into new settlements. On the 3rd of July 1741, at Beaubassin, Joseph married 20-year-old Catherine Joseph Thibodeau, the eighth child of Pierre Thibodeau and Anne Marie Aucoin. The record lists her name as Margaret Tibido. Three years later war broke out again in Europe. The French hoped the Acadians would support them and the English were worried about the same thing. Most Acadians remained neutral but that did not ease England’s anxiety.
      By 1752 Joseph and his family were at Chipoudy. He is listed with a wife, two boys and three girls. The boys are Flavien 6 and Louis 2. The girls names and fates are unknown but their ages would likely have been 10, 8 and 4. His widowed mother Anne Henry is there as well with Joseph’s brother Charles and a sister, probably Therese. Also listed is his half-brother Pierre with his wife and seven children.
      As the situation worsens, staying in Acadia no longer seems an option. The family moves on to St. Francois du Lac in Quebec where 11-year-old Flavien dies in July of 1757. About eight years on, circa 1765, Joseph not yet 50, dies. His widow remarries on May 27, 1769 to Jean Morvend at St. Francois du Lac. Joseph and Catherine’s surviving children married non-Acadians: Jean Baptiste married Marie Francoise 'Marianne' St. Cosme in January of 1773 at Fort Detroit; Louis married Madeleine Marcot in January of 1774 at Cap Sante, Quebec; and Joseph married Madeleine Frenet in February of 1779 at Cap Sante. Catherine Josephe Thibodeau died Jan. 12, 1790 at St. Francois du Lac, just two months shy of her 70th birthday.
