Tenth Generation


670. Nicolas BORDELON I was possibly born in 1730 in Natchez (Adams County), Mississippi, USA.1257 He appeared in the census in 1732 at Rue de Chartres in New Orleans (Orleans Parish), Louisiana, USA living with his widowed mother. He appeared in the census in 1745 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA living with his mother, Anne Francoise Roland, and step-father, Jean Stephan dit Roquancourt. He is listed as 15 years of age. He supposedly lived with his family on an extensive family near (what is today) Morganza, Louisiana. Nicolas sold four arpents of land to Antoine Goudeau in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA on 2 January 1769.1312 He died on 8 September 1769 at the age of 39 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.251 He was buried on 8 September 1769 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1313 Although the exact date on which the succession of Nicolas Bordelon was opened is unknown, his estate was in succession by late January 1771. On the 30th of that month, a family meeting and verbal proceedings were documented in the civil records of Pointe Coupée regarding the sale of the plantation and family of slaves belonging to the Widow Bordelon (Adrienne Rondot). She had agreed to this sale to retire debts owed to the LeDoux succession and the young Jean Pierre LeDoux had expressed his desire to purchase the estate from Rondot. On the same day, the sale of the Bordelon plantation was recorded (12 arpents wide fronting on the Mississippi) to Antoine Bordelon for J. P. LeDoux for the sum of 3010 livres. The slave family was also sold to Antoine Bordelon for LeDoux for the sum of 3500 livres. By 4 January 1778, the succession remained open and his widow (& others) wanted to name another curator because the family was moving to another district (Avoyelles? Opelousas?). Joseph Mayeux was named as curator because he was also moving to the same district. The following day, the habitation of the Widow Bordelon was sold at auction. The property, consisting of 4 arpents, 27 feet with a house, cabin, parc and enclosures, was sold to the highest bidder - Mr. Tounoir for 220 livres.1314,1315 Adrienne RONDOT and Nicolas BORDELON I251,842 were married on 2 June 1753 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1,1316

671. Adrienne RONDOT was born about 1732. She purchased a 15 arpent plantation bounded by Methode and Trénonay from Marie Colon (widow Sarrazin) for the sum of 2225 livres. on 21 June 1771 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1317 She on 10 May 1772 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA sought indemnity against "Godeaux" damage suffered while he occupied "the place" without paying for the property. The civil document stated that she had reclaimed the property and was about to sell it to LaMorandière but buildings had all been destroyed.1318 Adrienne appeared in the census in 1785 at Avoyelles Post in (Avoyelles Parish), Louisiana, USA. Adrienne Rondot is likely the 'Widow Bordelon' who testified in a 1794 case against a negro who was working for 'Mr. Ducote' and was accused of stealing goods from Francois Heraud. In the trial of Phillip, the accused negro, the 'Widow Bordelon' was asked "what proof she had of a statement she had made to Mrs. Heraud relative to the theft which had taken place a month previous. She replied that Mrs. Heraud had come to the house of Mr. Mayeux where she, Mrs. Bordelon, was at the time sewing on a pair of trousers for a negro belonging to Pierre Ducote. She asked Mrs. Heraud if among the things stolen, there was any heavy material. She said she had made a pair of trousers for that very negro. The trousers were of the said material. She was asked if she knew anymore, and she said no. She was asked for her age. She said she was 64. The trial ended in favor of Heraud. Phillip was to be given 30 licks on the following morning, since it was late and they had no one to do it."1319 A land grant was given to Adrienne by the Spanish Government in Avoyelles Parish. The date of the grant is unknown although it likely was given in the late 1780's or 1790's. It was for 1200 arpents. The existence of this grant is mentioned on numerous Avoyelles land claims. She was buried on 2 January 1808 in Opelousas (St. Landry Parish), Louisiana, USA.2779
