Seventh Generation


120. Jean Baptiste RABALAIS II was born on 12 February 1783 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.999 He was baptized on 8 August 1784 at St. François d’Assise Catholic Church & Cemetery in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.999 Per "Some Early Families of Avoyelles Parish, Louisiana", Jean Baptiste owned a large tract of land at the junction of Bayou Rouge and Bayou des Glaises at time of marriage to Marie Manette Gremillion in 1809. He was likely the "Jean Baptiste Rabalais fils" whose succession inventory was dated 16 August 1819 and documented in Avoyelles Inventory Book I indicating he was deceased by that date. This seems to be confirmed by the fact that he was deceased by 3 May 1824 because he was listed as such on the 3 May 1824 civil marriage record of Manette Deidanie Rabalais & Joseph Joffrion III. Marie Manette GRÉMILLION and Jean Baptiste RABALAIS II251 were married on 25 November 1809 in Mansura (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1000

[Note: Jean Baptiste's first marriage was to Marie Juneau. The couple was granted a dispensation on 24 January 1803.]
