Marie Josephine Pinta was the fifth child of Jean Baptist Pinta and Luce Grandmaison. She was born on 31 August 1810 and baptized 12 Feb 1811 at St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, LA. There is no other information located, yet, about her short life, except that at the age of 5 she was buried on 22 September 1815 at St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. Seems New Orleans had a high mortality rate due to the summer heat and humidity which made it a perfect climate for mosquitoes. Possibly Marie Josephine died of yellow fever or cholera, which plagued the city for years.

|St. Louis Cathedral Cemetery Interment book 1857-1864, New Orleans, LA|
This record shows the burial record of two of Joseph and Julia Pinta's children, Richard & Jules. They both died of scarlet fever, just days apart in 1860. See their death record images on this blog. You can see that on the burial record it indicates both children were living at No 165 Gasquet, which was Joseph's address in the 1859 NOLA city directory.
