Notes for Benoni Guillaume Pitre:

- In 1822 a petition was presented at Cape Breton for Benoni Peters and others.  The petition to Kempt stated:  Petitioners are natives of Prince Edward Island and reside there with their families on rented lands. They have commissioned Benoni Peters to choose land for them and ask tickets for the lots on the north side of Ball's Creek in Spanish Harbour, that he has chosen for them.  Benoni Peters is 55 years old, is married and has fifteen children.  Stephen Peters is 24 years old, married and has one child.  Benoni X Peters, for himself and Peter Peters and Stephen Peters.   [This would appear to be Benoni Guillaume Pitre (but with many more children than I have found records for), his 2nd cousin Pierre (Captain Peter) Pitre and Pierre's son Etienne (Keniche) Pitre.] 


- 1841 PEI:  Belony Peters (farmer), 25 acres, native.  Gender/age listing indicates: Benoni 78, wife Anne Marie Daigle 55, Benoni William 24, girl >16, girl <16.

- 1861 PEI:  Widow Anne Marie Daigle 75, living with son Belony Peters & his family.
