1972. Joseph MOREAU came to the New World via/on "Profond" in 1720.1 Joseph and his wife, Jeanne Damouret, lived in New Orleans in 1722. His residence was identifed on the 1722 de la Tour map as lot 87. According to the Vieux Carré Commission, this lot is now 911-913 and 915-917 Chartres Street. In the 1728 Broutin Map, it was identifed as lot 101 (also includes 919-925 Chartres Street). In the 1731 Gonichon map, it was identified as lot 88 (911-913 and 915-917 Chartres Street). He appeared in the census in 1726 at Rue de Condé (originally the part of Rue de Chartres from the church to the lower boundary line) in New Orleans (Orleans Parish), Louisiana, USA.1 He was a widow by the time of the 1726 census and he was living with his three children. Joseph was found on Rue de Condé again in the 1727 census living with his three children and it can be assumed that he was still living in the same dwelling as he had been the year prior. I also believe that he was the "Sr. Moreau" found on the 1728 Gonichon map of New Orleans living in dwelling #120. This dwelling was located on (what is now) St. Phillip Street between Chartres and Royal. Rue St. Phillip was not named on the Gonichon map nor did it appear on the 1727 census although it was enumerated under the heading of 'Rue Philippes' in the 1726 census. After Joseph's marriage to Marie Thérèze LeGrand, Widow Drillant, in 1729, Marie brought several properties into the marriage. This included properties at the current addresses of 939, 943, 614, and 616 St. Phillip Street in New Orleans Vieux Carré. He died between 30 July 1736 and 3 August 1736 in New Orleans (Orleans Parish), Louisiana, USA. Joseph had his estate in succession. Jeanne DAMOURET (D'AMOURETTE) and Joseph MOREAU were married before 1704 in Port-Louis (Morbihan) (Bretagne Region), France.1770
[Note: Joseph's 2nd marriage was to Marie Thérèze LeGrand, Widow Drillant. The couple was united in a religious ceremony on 4 June 1729 in New Orleans and signed a marriage contract on 22 June 1729.]
1973. Jeanne DAMOURET (D'AMOURETTE) came to the New World via/on "Profond" in 1720.1 She died on 9 June 1725 in (Orleans Parish), Louisiana, USA.1,1391 She was buried on 9 June 1725 in New Orleans (Orleans Parish), Louisiana, USA.2326,2327
