Gérard PELLERIN was born on 9 December 1676 and baptized the same day at Église Saint-Lié in Mohon (Ardennes) (Champagne-Ardenne Region), France.1 He came to the New World via Le Comte de Toulouse which set sail from La Rochelle (Charente-Maritime), France. On a ship list dated 15 November 1718, he was shown as a concessionaire. Traveling with him was his first wife (Catherine Angélique Le Cozic/Le Cosier/Le Cozique whom he had married on 20 October 1707 at Église Notre-Dame-de-Paradis in Hennebont (Morbihan) (Bretagne Region), France), one son, as well as two nephews - Noël Soileau and Pierre Gueho. Also traveling with them were Louis Bourbon dit Ossement and his wife as well as three three servants. Gérard arrived in Louisiana on 15 March 1719 according to a letter Pellerin wrote to his cousin. This letter was found in the records of Paris by Professor Dianne Guenin-Lelle (a direct-descendant of Gérard), and I was lucky enough that she shared the transcription of the letter with me. The letter was dated 1 August 1720 and was written at New Biloxi. Gérard died on 8 April 1737 at the age of 60 and was buried the following day in New Orleans (Orleans Parish), Louisiana, USA.
