** Marie was born February of 1839 and should have been listed in the 1848 inventory with her mother and siblings. Because she was not listed in the inventory, it is estimated that Marie died before 1848. A slave sale showing that Marie was sold away is yet to be found. 

***See Francoise's (bn. 1821) page for additional information on Marie's siblings.
