**Francoise was born three months after the 1848 inventory was taken. She is, appropriately, not listed in that inventory. By the 1860 inventory, Francoise would have been listed as a single female by herself. She is not listed anywhere in the 1860 inventory. This suggests that she died before 1860. A slave sale has not been discovered suggesting she was sold away.
