69. Marguerite LANDRY, G Granddaughter.
Marguerite LANDRY, widow of Jacques III MIUS d'ENTREMONT, was at Cherbourg, France, in 1767, with their two sons. She is, however, listed on the passenger list of the La Ville d'Archangel, a large 600 ton ship, which left St. Malo, France on August 12, 1785 for Louisiana. Upon reaching Balize, an outpost at the mouth of the Mississippi River, it ran aground on November 4. This, and the fact
that they had already run out of food, caused a number of passengers to get sick. Finally the ship made it to New Orleans (after 113 days at sea) on December 3, 1785. There are marginal notes that say that the family didn't embark at St. Malo, but did embark at Nantes.
