334. Joseph MAYEUX was born on 27 August 1750 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1184 He was baptized on 13 September 1750 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1184 Revolutionary War Military service: American Revolution - Pointe Coupee Militia in 1779. He appeared in the census in 1785 at Avoyelles Post in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. Living with him and his wife were 5 children and they had 10 arpents of land and did not own any slaves. On 22 September 1788, acting as a Sergeant in the Militia (on the command of Noel Soileau - Commandant of the Post of Avoyelles), he went to the "domicile of Sieur Antoine Tarabouchie Merchant in order to seize all of his liquor. I found there two barrels of Taffia, two deminjohns of Red Wine. I removed 42 bottles and everything else which I sezied in accordance with my orders ...". It appears that Joseph died on 9 January 1817. A succession record was located in Avoyelles Probate Book A (Page 247/248) which states that he died on that date. His estate was in succession by 28 March 1817. Adrienne BORDELON and Joseph MAYEUX842 were married on 8 December 1774 at Ascension of Our Lord Catholic Church in Donaldsonville (Ascension Parish), Louisiana, USA.1185 Record of a petition was found dated 28 Nov 1786 of Madame Joseph Mayeaux against her husband for separation of goods. It would appear that the couple separated but this has not been confirmed. It is possible that this was simply a legal declaration of the property of each so that Adrienne could legally protect her personal property. She requested that an inventory be taken of her property because she claimed that her husband had been doing business without her knowledge and had involved her property. She expressed fear that her children would be left penniless.
[Note: Joseph's 2nd marriage was to Constance Hébert on 13 November 1797 in Opelousas. According to the marriage record, her surname is listed as 'Milan'.]
