NOTE: In obtaining the nationality of the militiamen, either the different captains or the copyist of these documents have made a few errors. The following names appear in the militia as having been born
in Acadia: Roger, Gilson, Durio, Damour, Corsseau, Molay, and Rocq. These names do not appear in any of the documents, census, etc. of Acadia prior to the exile.

"For each parish, an officer of the army or militia, was named as civil and military commandant. He was in charge of the police of the parish and preserved the peace. It was his duty to examine the passports of all strangers, and to suffer no one to settle within his territorial jurisdiction without a permit from the governor. He tried civil cases when the object in dispute did not exceed $20.00. In more important cases, he received and then sent all pleadings and the evidence, to the governor. He was ex-officio, a notary public, took inventories and passed sales, and executed judgements rendered in New Orleans against persons living in the country parishes." From "The Story of Ascension Parish, Louisiana," by Sidney A. Marchand.
