About Marguerite Breau (Barrieau)

Born in Acadia, we farmed the lowlands using the methods of our homeland, from the coast of France. In 1755 we were forced out of our homes and land and driven away. My husband and I landed in Boston with our four children. Life was difficult because we were Catholic. There was great animosity at this time against foreigners; the Acadians were not well received. POne of my sons went to Louisiana and became part of the Cajun society. We wandered until we returned to Canada, to Québec. We joined other expatriate Acadians. A good study would be to see which of our descendants returned to Québec. Married 1745 in Grandpre, Nova Scotia, Canada
