The Family of
Antoine Clermont aka St. Antoine
& wife 
Marie Jeanne Weillot (Villiotte)

This Page created by Sadie Greening Sparks



Antoine Clermont dit St. Antoine was born Ca 1690-1700, Naples, France.  He came to Louisiana on the ship "Venus" with his family,  embarking on July 3, 1730, bound for Louisiana from L'Orient.  He was a Sergeant in Plantin's Company.  His wife, Marie Jeanne Weillot,  died in port @ L'Orient, and he placed his two daughters in the orphanage at the Ursuline Convent in New Orleans, soon after arrival, as they are enumerated there in a 1731 census. 

He married his second wife, Susanne Mertz, widow of Joseph Rister (Or Kisler)  on October 12, 1732 at New Orleans.  I do not know when/where Antoine Clermont died.  Antoine Clermont witnessed the marriage of  Marie Jeanne Josephe Clermont to J. B. DuBois in 1751, at Natchitoches, La. I am assuming this is her brother. There is a land transaction between Antoine Clermont and Bte. Brevel  in 1751, and another between him and Andre Rambin  in 1762; and a 1765 deed refers to his widow.

Children: Clermont/Clairmont
