    Charles BOURG, age 46, husband of Marguerite LEBLANC, traveled to Louisiana on the ship "La Ville d'Archangel" with family of Francois Xavier BOURG [whose 1st wife had been his own wife's sister] and Francois Xavier's second wife, Marguerite Pelagie HENRY, accompanied by Charles' wife Marguerite LE BLANC, age 40. Together they all constituted the 52nd family (of 11 persons) who embarked in France on 12 Aug 1785 and debarked in Louisiana on 3 Dec 1785. He was not issued his own supply of tools by the Spanish government [was he an invalid?]
    On p. 104, there is a Carlos BOURQUE listed on the debarkation list of 3 Dec 1785 at New Orleans, among names with no reference on the embarkation list. But could this man, who traveled with another family, have been issued tools on his own? He received 1 each of axe, hatchet, hoe, knife, large knife, and 2 shovels.
