An explicit record of Pierre's birth has not been located. His age in the 1769 census is given as 22 and in the 1777 census as 30, which yields a birth year of about 1747. His given age of 72 years at his death in 1817 yields a birth year of 1745. The 1747 date probably is more accurate since it was based on much earlier records. Age at death commonly seems inflated in Church records.
