Locations (Localités)

Below is a list of the locations identified in the census under the column "Localités", first in the original French, then in English translation, with the page numbers on which they occur. The last column is a description of where these places are located in terms of today's place names. I've based this on an 1877 map of Van Buren Plantation, Cyr Plantation and Hamlin Plantation that includes property lots and names of owners.
