Family notes:
• Jean was literate – he signed most of his documents.
• (S) 6/1/1748, Saturday, 9 AM, Superior Council of LA, LA State Museum: “It is not necessary to give a lengthy account to such a demand because the plaintiff (Fayard) has never wanted any more than what is due to his wife, Francoise Fisseau, and that the lengthy requests of May 21, 1748, be responded to. The accountant [Pierre de Lorme] will have the honor to explain it to the Court that the things left by the deceased Nicolas Fisseau included two adult negroes and one young child, an old house on stilts on two-thirds of a piece of land. The house was void of furniture; that the negro in the service of Mr. Chenier had the misfortune of drowning in the lake, for which the accountant had received the sum of 1,300 pounds for damages, which included 800 pounds due to the Company, for which discharge is available; the company also kept 125 pounds for the return ticket of Fisseau from France and 375 pounds which was given to the widow, which she used for herself and her daughters to pay for a lengthy illness endured. … When the young negro boy went to see his mother, who was in the service of one named Piosa, he drowned in a well. The slave woman left a boy of twelve and three small girls, one of six years, one of three and one of eighteen months. It was stated in the contract of marriage between Nicolas Fisseau, the deceased, and Marianne La Garenne, that she had brought a dowry of 300 pounds, half of which was community property, the other half would be hers by right; that the same contract stipulated that 100 pounds would go to the survivor; that according to custom a widow in mourning would be given 100 pounds, something she hoped for. The accountant said that he had paid 20 pounds for the funeral expenses & 10 pounds for pallbearers; that he had also paid a debt of the deceased Fisseau in the amount of 50 pounds. It is also noted that the house had fallen into ruin and that the accountant had built a new house, even though his funds were not sufficient, requiring him to borrow 157.10 pounds from Mr. Dubreuil, according to the attached record. Before the division can take place there must be raised … It is to be noted that the wife of the accountant, during her widowhood, sold to a Mr. LaFontaine twenty-five feet of property. And, since the accountant wishes to avoid all causes of dispute, he asks that the Court put up for auction-sale all of the effects mentioned above to be sold to the highest bidder, in order to raise the 587.10 pounds. … .” [Decision of the Council the same day – Decision #12]. … the Council orders that movables of the succession are to be sold, returns are to be divided, after raising what comes to the widow. The lot and house are to be sold judicially, to the profit of the heirs. The succession is to bear the costs. (S) Fayard Family, Brother Jerome Lepre, PP8-9.
• “On June 1, 1781, after presenting themselves to the judge vicar of the province of New Orleans and pastor of the parish of St Louis, Luis Fayard and Martha Gargare by matrimonial contract and the publication of the three banns on the appointed days, according to the prescriptions of the Council of Trent and with no canonical impediments give each other by mutual consent; that is, Louis Fayard, native of Deer Island legitimate son of Pedro Fayard and Francisca Brousseau, his parents, and Martha Gargare, legitimate daughter of Miguel Gargare and Martha Ocqui her parents, give their mutual consent in spoken words to this true and legitimate marriage, in presence of the witnesses, Carlos Ladnier, Daniel Santo, Santiago Dupre, Juan Bautista Olivier, on the 15th day of the same month and year above sign their signatures.” /s/ Father Cyrillo de Barcelona.

Family notes:
• Valenciennes, France is first mentioned in 693 in a legal document written by Clovis II. In the 9th century the region was overrun by the Normans. In the 14th century, the Tower of Dodenne was built. In the 15th century, the County of Hainault, of which Valenciennes is part, was re-attached to Burgundy. In 1524, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V arrived at Valenciennes. With its manufacturer of wool and fine linens the city was able to become economically independent. By 1580 the town, a Calvinist stronghold, was conquered by Alexander Farnese and Protestantism was eradicated. In 1678 by the Treaty of Nijmegen, the French took control of Valenciennes and the surrounding southern part of of the county. This would be about the time Andre was born.
• It is possible, but not likely, they are a Canadian family. There were Amiot and Girard families in the Quebec area when they were born.

Cox 350 Graveline-Panyouasas

350&356. Capt Jean Baptise Baudreau Dit Graveline I & 351. Suzanne ?
& 357. Marie Suzanne Panyouasas [Can, Fra, MS]


5/18/1671, Jean born in Montréal, Québec, Canada; s/o 700. Urbain Baudreau Dit Graveline & 701. Mathurine Marguerite Julliett Dit Avignon.
5/18/1671, Jean baptized in Notre Dame, Montréal, Ile de Montréal. (S) No. 700 Family notes.
~1672 Suzanne born in born in France. (S) Old Mobile.
1681 Census of Montreal, “Baptiste”, 11 and living with his family. [This is the last record found of Jean in the Montreal/Quebec parish archives]
9/1697, Jean participated in the attacks on Hudson Bay with Pierre Le Moyne D’Iberville. Jean Baptiste as a young man courageously risked his life many times “...for the service of his Majesty, first in the expeditions in which he took part in Canada against the Iroquois, where he always distinguished himself, as well as in the journeys that were made there by sea to take Hudson’s Bay and ravage the coasts of Newfoundland ...”. (S) Bouzage Bosarge, P95. In the battle of Fort Nelson [Fort Bourbon by the French], D’Iberville’s ship the Pelican defeated 3 British ships in a battle during a gale-force storm. Pierre Le Moyne D’Iberville [founder of Mobile], Joseph Le Moyne de Serigny, and Bienville Le Moyne [founder of New Orleans] were all Canadian-born sons of Charles Le Moyne of Montreal; the birthplace of Jean Baptiste, son of the Lord Mayor of Montreal.
1/17/1699, Jean was present for the inventory of his father’s estate in Montreal, Canada.
1699, Jean was one of 60 Canadians that sailed from New Foundland to Rochefort, France with Joseph Le Moyne de Serigny, who became the Governor of Rochefort. By orders of Pontchatrain, the Canadians awaited the return of Pierre Le Moyne D’Iberville. If D’Iberville’s expedition was successful, the men would be ready for D’Iberville’s 2nd voyage to the new French colony of LA.
1699, Jean married 1st Suzanne ? in La Rochelle, France. Suzanne was a Protestant [as were many of the residents of the La Rochelle area] that took her religion seriously. (S) Old Mobile, P443.
10/1699, Jean left France with D’Iberville on the ship La Renommee from La Rochelle.
1/8/1700, Jean arrived by ship at the MS coast (Biloxi) where Fort Maurepas was established. Jean remained at Fort Maurepas until the capital was moved in 1702 to a site on the Mobile River, where he then lived at Fort Louis for a time.
5/25/1700 Census of Biloxi, Canadians – Jean Baptiste Graveline. (S) Census Tables 1699–1732.
1/1702, Jean moved with D’Iberville to establish Fort Louis up-river from current Mobile, AL. He was a Militia Captain. [Jean is considered one of 27 Founder’s of Old Mobile]. (S) Love’s legacy, P29. At this time there were only 240 Frenchmen and Canadians in lower LA. (S) Old Mobile, P113.
6/1702, Jean built a one-story [probably 2 room] house from young pine. A well-to-do Canadian, his home was one of the largest; about 50 ft long and 20 ft wide; with a covered gallery outside for use in the heat of summer. The mortar for the walls was composed of damp clay, sand and oyster shells. The majority of his allocated land was used for private gardening. (S) Old Mobile, PP88-90.
1705, Jean, no longer in the King’s service, and some other more ambitious residents were planning large plantations to be able to sell produce to Havanna, Vera Cruze, Pensacola, and the French King’s stores on Massacre Island. There main problem was a lack of slaves to supply the labor. (S) Old Mobile, P224. The French administrators had an anti-slave policy to try to win the support of, and peace among the local Indian tribes, from which slaves were being bought by the English.
~1706 Marie born in LA Terr., d/o 714. Pierre Panyouasas & 715. Marianne ?. (S) No. 714 Family notes.
8/1706, Jean and some business partners boarded the ship Aigle headed for Havana. At Havana they switched to the English-built ship Conventry, which arrived in La Rochelle, France a few months later. Jean and partners Derbanne, La Fresniere and La Source, were interested in starting a trade in beaver furs, but they needed a ship. Jean, at 36, possessed more resources than any other merchant in the colony. In France, Jean and his partners ran into problems with an already assigned beaver monopoly. Jean believed there would still be profitable trade in France for LA resources. (S) The Descendents, V2, #1, Spring 1981. (S) Old Mobile, P391-3.
10/1707, Jean sent word to his brothers Gabriel and Paul about the venture to sell resources in France through La Source, who was traveling to Montreal to get married. Jean was able to purchased the ship Marguerite, by which he returned to Mobile with supplies that they sold for a good profit. On the return trip Jean bought a bull and other cattle while stopped in Havana. (S) Old Mobile, P394. Jean is identified as having 4 slaves: 2 male Indians, 1 female Indian, and 1 black male. (S) Old Mobile, Appendices.
3/1/1708, all Canadians were dismissed from the French King’s service, and they moved from the fort. Jean, having previously been removed from the service, moved to Dauphin Island. Jean believed the island’s grasslands would be excellent for raising cattle [See CD Misc Graphics 350 map]. It is hard to read, but Graveline’s land is identified on the large-scale map to the right as the “square patch” above the “S”. This map of Dauphin Island is dated 4/4/1717 and resides in the Biblioteque National, Paris, France. The map on the left is the detail around the lagoon “L” in the map on the right, but dates from 1714 [See CD Misc Graphics 350 map]. Note that “L” is identified as “graveline” and “M” translated means “other house of graveline that serves as a church”. Note that in the drawing building “M” has a cross. (S) Graveline Society Publication of 2004, article “New Discovery” by Eloise Genest. Right-map: (S) Old Mobile, Illustrations.
Spring-1709, Jean loaded the Marguerite with a small cargo and returned to France. (S) Old Mobile, P394.
Fall-1709, the ship Marguerite returned from France with passengers Joseph Simon dit la Pointe and his family. They were to become very close friends of Jean; with Joseph eventually becoming the 2nd husband of Catherine Douçin359. Jean had also arranged for more cattle to be bought in Havana. Jean had not heard from his brother Gabriel, and because the Mobile colony was in dire straits, Jean sold the ship to Bienville for the colony’s use. He received 2000 livres for the Marguerite. (S) Old Mobile, P398. Jean’s wife Suzanne probably arrived on this same trip. Her first mention in the colony is when Jean is living on Massacre Island.
1/1710, Jean’s brother Gabriel arrived in Mobile.
Summer-1710, Jean’s and 15 other families were living on Dauphin Island. The buildings pictured were owned by Jean, but he lived near what is now called Graveline Bay where the grasslands were abundant and he could tend to his cattle. This house, described as “the finest private home in the colony”, was a 2-story building costing Jean over 2000 livres. (S) Old Mobile, P442. Suzanne began to instruct her servants in the Protestant faith. Even though this might have been a problem, the Jesuits and Cathloic priests were too busy fighting with each other over who should have control of the “missions” to make her faith an issue.
9/9/1710, a English pirate ship masquerading as a French brigantine anchored off Dauphin Island near Pelican Island. The next day the pirates took control of the island, gathered the residents in a few of the houses where they could be watched, and looted the island’s warehouse. The next day they burnt the buildings not holding residents [Jean’s house was spared along with several others not located near the lagoon]. A Canadian returning to the island came upon a lingering pirate and shot him. The other pirates heard the shot and thought a contingent from the fort was arriving so they returned to their ship and sailed father from the island. They came back the next day in an attempt to retrieve the bull and cattle. Jean and 3 other Canadians used guns that had escaped seizure and fought them off, firing and and then quickly moving to a different location and firing again to make the pirates believe they were a much larger force [remember these were men that had been in battles against the British and Indians]. Jean’s cattle had been saved, but almost everything else of value on the island had been seized or destroyed. (S) Old Mobile, P446-8.
10/1713, Suzanne died on Dauphin Island, AL. (S) 10/1713 letter of Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac. (S) Old Mobile, P442.
10/10/1716, Graveline, together with a group of his Canadian friends [including La Fresniere, Durbanne], formed a commercial company. Jean left Mobile and traveled to Spain’s new Kingdom of Leon, what is now East Texas, then called “Tejas”. It was a challenging journey into a territory which was sprinkled with missions, and friendly and unfriendly Indians. At one Point in Texas, the French enterprisers were attacked by 60 Indians, who took 33 of their mules along with the belongings of the men. (S) The Historical Journal of the French in Louisiana, USL History Series, PP100-5. (S) Exploration des affluents du Mississipi et découverte des montagnes Rocheuses (1679-1754), Chap. VI.
10/25/1717, Jean arrived back in Mobile. (S) Same as above.
1717, Jean married 2nd Marie Suzanne Panyouasas. [Apparently because she was “with child”.] If correct, it would not have been that unusual. Many instances of marriage of 12-13 year olds occur in this document, especially with French-Canadian ancestors who were trying to survive and populate new territories. Many of them had children by Native Americans [aka Metis.]
~ 1718, Jean moved to “Martin’s Bluff”, on the west side of the Pascagoula river in MS. With the help of Indian and Negro slaves, he farmed and raised cattle on his river plantation.
9/12/1724, Jean Baptiste (Baudreau) and his daughter (Magdeleine) were godparents to Jean B C Ladner160i. (S) SRAoM, #396. On the same day they were also the godparents to two Nego children “Jean Baptiste” and “Magdelaine”.

Family notes:
• Because Jean has a younger brother with the same name born 19 years after him, there is a problem identifying which one is the correct one in documents after about 1705.
• Jean Baptiste Baudreau Dit Graveline I was an adventurer. The earliest of the ancestors to move from New France to the gulf. He reached Fort Maurepas (Biloxi, MS) on 1/8/1700 with a group representing D’Iberville’s second expedition to the area.
• In a letter to Maurepas in 1748, Governor Vaudreuil wrote of Graveline, “... he came here for the settlement of this colony, at which he has always worked steadily, both by the frequent voyages which he had made to France to contract for and conduct people here, and by the voyages he had made to Vera Cruz and Havana in order to open a commerce there and to have transported to this country the first purebred horned livestock seen here ... he was one of the most opulent and where by his generosity in assisting all those who asked it of him has merited the esteem and the protection of all decent men ...”. Governor Vaudreuil praised Jean saying that he had distinguished himself “...since he has been in Louisana in the difficult journeys that he had undertaken, both to manage certain Indian nations for us and to suppress the insolence of several others, having marched against them at the head of the militia, of which he is the oldest captain, whenever we have formed an army to fight them.”
• There is an archives historical marker near the Interstate 10 rest area.
