He died on 9 March 1764 at the age of 67 in (St. Charles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1676 Jacques had his estate in succession on 10 March 1764.1677 Anne Marie BIENVENU and Jacques DUPRÉ dit Lecomte were married on 15 July 1722 in Kaskaskia (Randolph County), Illinois, USA.1676,1678 They1676,1678 signed a marriage contract on 15 July 1722 in Kaskaskia (Randolph County), Illinois, USA.1679 They1679 appeared in the census in 1726 at Rue St. Pierre in New Orleans (Orleans Parish), Louisiana, USA. Jacques was identified as a menuisier (joiner, carpenter). The couple appeared in the census in New Orleans again the following year on Rue de Bourbon. Once again, Jacques was identified as a menuisier (joiner, carpenter). The couple had one child by this time. It is very likely that Jacques Dupré was the individual identified as "Sr. Dupre" living on Rue de Bourbon on the 1 May 1728 Gonichon map of New Orleans. He was living in dwelling #254. Dupré, his wife, and child were living on Rue de Bourbon the previous year. It is likely that this dwelling was located in (what is now) the vicinity of 631-635 Bourbon Street. By 1736, the family was living in Mobile.
429. Anne Marie BIENVENU was born on 7 November 1706 and baptized on 11 November 1706 in Lorient (Morbihan), (Bretagne Region), France.1,2897 She was listed as "Marie Janne Bienvenu" on her baptismal record. Information about Anne's passage to Louisiana and/or Illinois is unknown. However, it is possible that she left France after the October 1719 death of her mother in order to join her father and brother in Illinois. She died on 23 September 1771 at the age of 66 in (St. Charles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1676According to a synopsis of her succession documents, the "Derbonne plantation" consisted of "24 arpanes (arpents) located 4 leagues upriver from New Orleans, on the west bank". One of the succession documents was the formal notification of her death "N.O., Sept. 23, 1771". It is unclear, however, as to whether she died at New Orleans on that date or whether formal notification was made to New Orleans on that date. (Her burial is not listed in the "Archdiocese of New Orleans, Sacramental Records..." book series.) Apparently, she did not leave a will. The inventory of her estate included eight slaves, livestock, a house, land, crops and the 'Derbonne' planation. The freedom of an 80-year-old slave, Angelica, was purchased for 12 pesos.3054
