      WFT1:5326 Notes: 'After 1755, most of François and Catherine Lejeune's descendants were exiled along the Atlantic seaboard. Six of great-grandsons came to Louisiana. About 1765 with shipload of Acadia refugees from Halifax. Settled along Mississippi in St. James.'
      WFT1:5326 Francois Savois possibly came from Poiton, France or Duchy of Savoy (N. Italy). Arrived in Acadie in 1641 or 1642. Appears (with wife and 9 children) in census of 1671. Probably married Catherine in 1651 or 1652. His name found at University St. Anne, Pointe de l'Eglise, Nova Scotia. Francois worked 6 acres, had 4 head of cattle and lived near mouth of river at Port Royal, Acadie. Some children named in census of Port Royal 1678. Assumed Francois and Catherine had died before at about about 58 and 46.'
      Acadian Roots CD: S-Ledet Gedcom: 'Had seventeen children, arrived in Acadia in 1643.' Adds Andrée Savoie (F) n.d. as first child listed.
