MEMORIAL PHOTOS 1 FLOWERS 15 The following information came from a genealogical collection presented to Rene Leblanc and Florette Lacharite on their fiftieth anniversary in July 1987:

He came to Acadia in about 1645 and settled about 15 kilometers north of Port Royal. When Port Royal was taken by Phipps in 1690, Daniel was appointed member of the board responsible for administer of the colony, until the governor arrived. The name Le Blanc was written as two separate words until about 1800, when it was combined into one word.

Additional gathered information:

He was a farmer, and he married Francoise, who was a young widow, in c 1650. They settled on the north bank of the Port-Royal River (now the Annapolis River), to the northeast of the marsh at Belisle, about nine miles above the fort at Port Royal and about a half mile below the chapel of St-Laurent, where he died.

Daniel and Francoise had seven children together, including six sons, all born at Port Royal, five of whom created families of their own. After they took wives, the four older LeBlanc sons moved to the Minas area, where they created a large extended family. The youngest son remained on his father's lands near Port Royal. (According to family genealogist Lucie LeBlanc Constentino: "... as was the usual way for the Acadians, the youngest son inherited the father's land.")
