Jean Baptiste Pierre MAYEUX was born on 6 September 1754 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1150 He was baptized on 25 December 1754 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1150 He appeared in the census in 1785 at Avoyelles Post in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. In the 1790s and, likely, the very early 1800s, Jean Baptiste served as one of two "Alcaldes" under Avoyelles Post Commandant Etienne Robert de la Morandier (Joseph Joffrion was the other Alcalde.) An "Alcade" was similar to a Justice of the Peace and his job would have been to arbitrate disputes, estimate inventory values (such as succession inventories) and serve as witness to various official proceedings. The date of his death is unknown. Originally, it was thought that his succession was file in 1803 but he appears to be alive on the religious marriage records of several children which took place in the 1820s.1151 Marie Julie (Julienne) BORDELON and Jean Baptiste Pierre MAYEUX251,842 were married on 4 June 1776 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1152
