      Published in the June 1981 volume of the Louisiana Genealogical Register,
      pages 121-125,this article was submitted by Judge Albert Tate, Jr., of
      New Orleans and W. N. Gremillion, Sr., of San Antonio, Texas.

      This 1785 census of Avoyelles Post was acquired by Judge Albert Tate Jr.,
      of New Orleans from the General Archives of the Indies, Seville, Spain.
      Judge Tate has made this information available to us for publication. This
      is the first known census of the Avoyelles Post. It provides valuable
      insights into our Spanish colonial heritage.

      Spanish colonial documents were transferred from New Orleans to Cuba
      about 1805-1808. They remained in Cuba for several years and were then
      deposited in the Archives of the Indies at Seville. The documents are known
      as ***Papales Procedentes de Cuba***. Some are bound, others are in bundles
      of loose sheets called legajos. This Avoyelles census is found in
      Legajo 198.

      The census is written in French. Translation and transcription is by
      Nelson Gremillion. The names of residents are transcribed as they appear.
      More recent spelling of some names is added parenthetically as appropriate.

      The census lists white and indian residents. The names of indians are
      not included because the transcriber is not familiar with those names.

      COMMENTS ON THE CENSUS:

      The first column, headed "Homme", translated "Men or Males", includes
      widows. Hence, the term "Homme" is somewhat misleading.

      The Widow Bordelon, listed number four, cannot be further identified.

      This is the first opportunity we have had to estimate the birth date of
      Dominique Coco I. His age is shown as 35; this means that he was born about
      1750.

      The Luis, surname unknown, listed after William Inrufty, cannot be
      identified because the writing is illegible.

      The Widow Juneau is Francoise Lemoine, daughter of Guillaume Lemoine
      and Marie Sanmerine called L'Este, and widow of Claude Juneau called
      Latulippe. This entry gives us an estimate of the date of Claude Juneau's
      death, before 1785.

      The Juneau family was well represented at Avoyelles at this time. Jacques
      Gagnard, Nicolas Chatelain, Mathurin Guillot, and Jean Baptiste Duplechin
      were all married to daughters of Claude (Latulippe) Juneau and Francoise
      Lemoine. Augustin Juneau, their oldest son, is listed as a resident at
      Avoyelles. Augustin was married to Marguerite Duplechin, sister of Jean
      Baptiste Duplechin. Six additional Juneau children are shown with the Widow
      Juneau.

      The Simon Lemoine listed was the son of Guillaume Lemoine and Marie
      Sanmerine called L'Este and brother of Widow Juneau. Simon Lemoine was
      baptized at Pointe Coupee on April 1, 1735, born October 20, 1734
      (PCP-3,208). We have found no marriage for Simon and no further information
      prior to this census. Apparently he never married. This is the first
      evidence of his presence at Avoyelles Post.

      This census offers an estimate of Jean Baptiste Malbert's birth date.
      His age is given as 72; this would place his birth at about 1713.

      The Joseph Rabalais family is presented as a group. Pierre Ducote and
      Dominique Coco married daughters of Joseph Rabalais. The Jean Baptiste
      Rabalais listed was a son of Joseph Rabalais. Joseph Rabalais II, who
      married Louise Malbert, daughter of Jean Baptiste Malbert, is not shown.
      Joseph Rabalais II married Louise Malbert at Avoyelles in 1784. They
      moved to Natchitoches Post prior to this census.

      Joseph Rabalais I and Joseph Joffrion, the elder, were brothers-in-law.
      Jean Baptiste Rabalais and Joseph Joffrion, fils, married Bouchard sisters.
      Also, Joseph Rabalais I was then married (his second) to Elizabeth Malbert,
      also a daughter of Jean Baptiste Malbert. Elizabeth Malbert, widow
      Rabalais, later married Nicolas Chatelain, who was the widower of Catherine
      Juneau.

      This is the first evidence we have of the presence of Antoine Bordelon at
      Avoyelles. His burial, on November 25, 1785, is recorded at Pointe Coupee
      (PCP-5,1). The record states that "he died in the night without rites."
      Did Antoine Bordelon return to Pointe Coupee after the date of this census?
      Did the Catholic priest at Pointe Coupee learn, on a vist to Avoyelles, of
      Antoine's death and then enter the burial in the registries? The burial of
      Antoine's widow is also recorded at Pointe Coupee, September 23, 1792
      (PCP-5,12).

      Only five residents appear to be "Americain": Hooter, Inrufty, Milan,
      Bradly, and Looper (?). The westward rush of settlers from the United
      States had barely begun.

      The relatively large numbers of cattle, horses, and swine owned by some of
      the persons enumerated indicates residence at Avoyelles for several years
      prior to this census.

      The emphasis on tobacco as a cash crop reflects Spanish Colonial policy of
      the time. The cultivation and sale of tobacco was controlled by the
      governement. The market was Mexico. Planting declined by 1792, and by 1800
      cotton had replaced tobacco as the principal cash crop. For a detailed
      study of this subject, see John G. Clark, ****New Orleans 1718 -1812, An
      Economic History**** (Lousiana State University Press: 1970), pages 188-192.
