      Translation by A.Owen: "Moses (Vienneau) settled at the Portage at Caraquet. Pierre and Francois, his sons, went to settle at Weldford.

    • It is believed that this is Welford civic parish in New Brunswick (located in Kent County to the southeast of Rogersville) and not Weldford, Maine, USA as indicated by some other genealogists. Weldford/Welford, Maine does not seem to exist. - comment by A.Owen with input from Cathie Vienneau.

    • Question as to whether Weldford is in Maine as Fidel Theriault writes in his book. Cathie Vienneau brought it to my attention that there is no Weldford, Maine. However there is a Welford Parish, a civic parish, in New Brunswick that is to the southeast of Rogersville. - comment by A.Owen
