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
