Re: Charles Savoie and his wife
Jean Charles SAVOIE was my wife's ancestor. I have that he was born 30 May 1721 in Port Royal, although it is possible it was Chipoudy. He was married first to Marie Magdeline RICHARD, date uncertain.1752 census of Chipoudy lists Jean with a wife and 2 boys and 1 girl. Savoie sources state that the wife and children died while evading the British, and that only he survived.
He married second Judith ARSENAULT (ARCENEAUX) on 7 Jan 1761 in Restigouche. They had a son Jean Baptiste SAVOIE, b. Cir. 1763 in Restigouche. They were captured by the British and imprisoned in Halifax until 1764. They went to Louisiana and were there in 1765. They had a set of twins born in St. James Parish, LA Cir. 1769, Pierre and Jean. Do not know of their fate. Then Cir. 1770 they had twins Joseph Pierre (my wife's ancestor) and Amedee in St. James, LA. Eldest son Jean Baptiste married Marie Rose LANDRY Cir. 1796 in the Assumption Church, Plattenville, LA.
Jean Charles SAVOIE died before 1795 in St. James, LA. His wife Judith died in Oct 1819 and was buried 30 Oct 1819 in Ascension Parish, LA.
Joseph Pierre married Marie Francoise Julienne BERGERON 27 Jul 1794 in Plattenville, Assumption, LA. Amedee married Victoria BOURGEOIS Cir. 1790 in St. Martinville, St. Martin, LA.
Other children of Jean Charles and Judith ARCENEAUX: Genevieve, b. Cir. 1772, St. James, LA; Francois Paul, b. Cir. 1774 St. James, LA; twins Simon Pierre and Marie Modeste b. Cir. 1777 in St. James, LA; Isabelle, b. Cir. 1780 in St. James, LA.
Simon Pierre (Cir. 1777) married Rosalie DUHON Cir. 1802 in Ascension Parish, LA; Marie Modeste (Cir. 1777) married Pierre BOURGEOIS Cir. 1795 in LA; Isabelle married Louis BROUSSARD of St. Martin, LA Cir. 1800.
I have more on the descendants of some of these, particularly Joseph Pierre SAVOIE (1770 - 1840).
There was another Charles SAVOIE, the son of Germain and Marie Vincente BRAULT (BREAUX), born Cir. 1703 in Port Royal. He married Francoise MARTIN 16 Jan 1729/30 in Port Royal. They were deported to New York by the British and died there. However, several of their children came to Louisiana via Martinique and Santo Domingo.
