After 1729 he was a Royal Quartermaster (Keeper of the King's Warehouse) in Natchez (Adams County), Mississippi, USA. He died on 4 June 1757 at the age of 56 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1693 Noël was buried on 4 June 1757 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1694 He had his estate in succession on 21 March 1768 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA although the date on which the succession was initially opened is unknown. On this date, two documents were recorded regarding the election of a guardian for the minor children of Noel Soileau. A third civil document was filed on 30 January 1769 regarding the deferral to Guillaume Marre of the election of a tutor for the minor children of the deceased Soileau. On 1 April 1769, a sale ordered by the court took place of a habitation of Soileau's minor children to Lamathe the elder.1695 Marie Josephe RICHAUME and Noël SOILEAU Sr.1696 signed a marriage contract on 28 June 1737 in Louisiana, USA.1697

[Note: Noël's first marriage was to Marie Bourdeaux before 1722. The marriage likely took place in Natchez because they appeared on the census there in 1722.]

453. Marie Josèphe RICHAUME was born after 1721 in (St. Charles Parish), Louisiana, USA.1698 She renounced her claims on half of the land belonging to her in favor of her minor children by Soileau on 26 December 1768 in (Pointe Coupée Parish), Louisiana, USA.1699 Her estate was in succession in Opelouas (St. Landry Parish), Louisiana by 20 January 1777. She was listed as "Madame Marcantelle" in the document. The fact that she was deceased by this date is supported by the fact that her husband, François, was listed in the 1777 Opelousas Census without his wife.3061

[Note: Marie Josephe signed a marriage contract with Jean Fradin dit Xaintonge (possible Saintonge) on 6 February 1735 at New Orleans. It is unknown if they married and, if they did, they were married only for a short time. She then married Soileau in 1737 as outlined on this page. On 14 August 1765, she married François Marcantel at Pointe Coupée. The couple had signed a marriage contract there on 13 August 1765.6 June 1764.]
