Whereas the wife and seven children of Francis Tibaudau, nine children of Germain John
Petre, and Anthony Landry and his wife, the two first of Pisguit river, and the latter of
the Inhabitants river, have been sent to some of the King's colonies, and the said
Francis Tibaudau, Germain John Petre, and some of the children of the said Anthony Landry
being in the city of Philadelphia: This public notice is given, that if possible
intelligence may be received by the above mentioned late inhabitants of Nova-Scotia, or by

I am not related to this family, I am just passing on this information, which comes from a
book titled "Runaway Women, Elopements And Other Miscreant Deeds, As Advertised In
The Pennsylvania Gazette - 1728 -1789. (together with a few abused wives and unfortunate
children)." Compiled by Judith Ann Highley Meier. Published by Closson Press. 1993.
