112. Augustin BORDELON I was born on 10 November 1768 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.930 He was baptized on 9 December 1768 at St. François d’Assise Catholic Church & Cemetery in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.930,931 On 7 October 1795 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA, "Mr. Augustin Bordelon purchased a parcel of land from Mr. Tassin. The tract of land is 1 arpent wide, by 40 deep, for $16".932 He appeared in the Avoyelles Church census in 1800. Augustin died about 13 December 1813 according to an entry in American State Papers regarding the Avoyelles land claim of Augustin. According to the entry, the "evidence of J. B. Dozat, taken the 27th December, 1813, states that, from the time he first went to Avoyelles, about fourteen years ago, the claimant has inhabited and cultivated the land constantly, until about fourteen days ago, the time of his death". This coincides with the first succession document found so far which is dated 3 January 1814. Celeste SOILEAU and Augustin BORDELON I251,665 were married on 24 August 1789 in Opelousas (St. Landry Parish), Louisiana, USA.933,934 They933,934 appeared in the census in 1810 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. Below is a copy of the American State Papers entry which indicates the date of Augustin's death in 1813:

ii.

Francois BORDELON was born on 5 July 1793 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.935 He was baptized on 20 November 1796 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.936 War of 1812 Military service: (War of 1812, Private, 17th, 18th & 19th Consolidated Regiment, Louisiana Militia) in 1812.937 He was buried on 13 September 1857 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.938

iii.

Celestin BORDELON was born on 15 April 1796 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.939 He was baptized on 20 November 1796 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.939 War of 1812 Military service: (War of 1812, Private, 17th, 18th & 19th Consolidated Regiment, Louisiana Militia) in 1812.940 He was buried on 11 February 1843 in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.941 Notice of Celestin's succession appeared in a 1843 edition (exact date unknown) of "The Expositeur". The name of his wife appears in the legal notice.

iv.

Pierre BORDELON was born on 31 October 1800 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.942 He was baptized on 26 February 1801 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.942 He died before 8 May 1830 - the date his wife married for a 2nd time. There is a burial recorded at St. Paul's in Mansura dated 20 September 1825 for a Pierre Bordelon who died at the home of Francois Bordelon but I'm unable to confirm if this burial belongs to him.

v.

Adélaïde BORDELON was born on 29 November 1801 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.943 She was baptized on 20 May 1802 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.943 She was possibly the "Adilaide Bordelon" whose burial is recorded at St. Paul's, Mansura, on 3 April 1863 at the age of 60.944

vi.

Louis (Don Louis) BORDELON was born about March 1805 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.945 He was baptized on 3 September 1806 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.945 There is a burial recorded at St. Paul's, Mansura, "Don Louis Bordelon" on 25 June 1868 at the age of 68 years but I'm unable to confirm if this is his burial.

vii.

Zenon A. BORDELON was born in December 1806 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.946 He was baptized on 24 November 1807 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.946 He was deceased by 6 December 1866 - the date of a family meeting associated with his wife's succession.

viii.

Victorin BORDELON I was born about January 1808 in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.947 He was baptized on 20 November 1808 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.948 In the book entitled "St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, Mansura, Louisiana, Avoyelles Parish, Register of Burials, 1824-1850", there is a burial dated 31 March 1850 for a "Victoria Bordelon". Based on a succession record dated 15 April 1850 (Inventory Book B) for a "Victorin Bordelon", it is believed that the 31 March 1850 burial record is, likely, for Victorin. However, there is no identifying information in the succession record to positively confirm that the record is for this Victorin.
