Surname Saturday- Arluc, Arlu, Arlut

Jean Arluc was born in Cannes, France around 1673. He married Marguerite Sauvestre on  May 5, 1693 in Rochefort, France. They had at least three children, Marie Marguerite, Jean, and Marianne.
Marguerite  Sauvestre died in La Rochelle, France on June 18, 1717.

After the death of his wife Jean Arluc quickly remarried to Catherine Bazil on November 5, 1717 and just a year later signed on to the Company of the West to go to the Louisiana Colony.

The family arrived to the Louisiana Colony aboard the Marechal de Villiers. Jean Arluc died six years after his arrival to Louisiana. His son Jean left Louisiana to return to La Rochelle, France where he there married Magdeleine Gautreau. He possibly left behind an illegitimate son in Louisiana.

Marie Marguerite Arluc (aka Arlu, and Arlut) married Andre Carriere in Mobile, Al on July 24, 1719. They had Andre, Marie Josephe, and Anne Marie Carriere. Andre Carriere died around 1723. Marie Marguerite remarried Francois Louis Tisserand (aka Tixerand) in 1724. They had a son, Adrien Tixerand who married Marie Ann Laloire. Their daughter Pelagie Tixerand married Jean Baptiste Saucier, son of Henri Saucier and Barbe LaCroix.

Marianne Arluc (aka Arlu, and Arlut) married Jean Baptiste Favre around 1720 in Mobile, Al. They had three sons, Jean Baptiste, Jean Claude, and Jean Simon Favre. She married a second time to Francois Parent and had the following children, Francois, Claude, Catherine and Charles Parent.

I have the privilege of having Marie Marguerite Arlu Tixerand as being my 7th great grandmother from my Saucier line, as well as her sister Marianne Arlu Favre being my 7th great grandmother through my Favre line.
