He is listed as deceased on the 1838 marriage record of his son, Gilbert, to Anaise Brulte'. (I've seen claims that he died in February 1835 but have not yet confirmed.) The burial records for St. Paul's in Mansura are missing from approx. 31 July 1835 until 30 Nov 1838. Adrien's wife is also listed as a widow in the 1850 Census (living with her two youngest sons, Simeon & Jean Baptiste).729 Celeste MAYEUX and Adrien COUVILLION I11,252 were united in Civil Marriage on 10 July 1810 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1,730 They1,730 were married on 18 November 1810 in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.731
