After he ended his fight with the British, Beausoleil led many of his people to Louisiana’s bayou country, allowing those Acadians to live in peace and community once again and to maintain their cultural identity. This identity continued to evolve as a vibrant part of the American mosaic. Likewise, my husband and Beausoleil descendant, Warren Perrin, is a man blessed with his ancestor’s enduring tenacity and passion for protecting his Acadian community. Using his pen and legal training as his rifle, Perrin decided to bring the work that Beausoleil started two centuries before to a final conclusion.

C. de B. Translation of the marriage record of Beausoleil and Agnes Tibodeau (1725) Two months after the verdict, Beausoleil’s mother, Catherine Richard, successfully appeared before the Council to request a reduction of Mary Daigle’s child support to five shillings per month. Interestingly, Jeanne Dupuis, wife of Guillaume Blanchard, volunteered to care for the child for five shillings per month. More interestingly, Mary Daigle – faced with the possibility of losing her child – opted to keep her baby without receiving any child support from Beausoleil.

This was not one of the more important elements of the baptismal record. Another item in this document which was very problematic (and my wife Therese was the one to put out the first hint as to what it might be) was the word Ondoyer in French. She remembered the term from her growing up years in Quebec as indicating a child who was baptized at birth because of some urgency such as possibly dying before getting to a priest. She could not remember the exact spelling but it was enough for Roger and Pierrette to take it from there.
