This proves that he was still in Canada at that time. It is likely that he moved from Canada to Louisiana in the late 1760s. Catherine OLIVO and Joseph ST.

On 19 February 1772 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA, Catherine Olivo, acting as the tutor of her children, asked permission to sell a troublesome female slave from the community property.
