died in 17 he left another piece of land
to Damastaye and Blaise Cassagnolle. An
undated plan from around 1750 indicates they
jointly owned this one as well. Rental
agreements for the property in the 1750s,
however, were entered into by Damastaye alone.

date unknown (probably around 1750). Plan
shows two buildings and a chaufaud.
- a court case involved the theft of
sheep from property held by Detcheverry and
Cassagnolle. Since this property was owned solely by Detcheverry, the theft probably
took place at Cassagnolle's concession, which was being rented by Detcheverry and Cassagnolle.
