Bonjour Alton,

The ancestor Jean-Baptiste Naquin arrived from France (exact location unknown) to Acadia in 1690 (nowadays in eastern Canada) where he settled and married.

Between 1755 and 1760, the British deported all the Acadians they could catch. It is this way that two sons of Jean-Baptise Naquin were transported to St-Malo in Brittany, France in 1758. In 1785, the Spanish invited all the Acadians who were still in France to come to Louisiana and they transported many hundred to New Orleans.

Two grandsons of Jean-Baptise Naquin and their families came this way.

More about the Acadian deportation can be found in any library.

Salut !
