Hi, Zacktyr,
Not sure if it is of any help but I recall that newspapers often reported the comings and goings of all ships. The Pelerin (or 'Pilgrim') might feature in one of those reports if you are after further detail on it.

Hi, Simon,

Thank you for your helpful suggestion.  I will definitely follow up in the newspapers. I have the arrival date so it shouldn't be too hard to find if the ship was noted.

The Fleuve St. Louis was another name for the Mississippi.

The library of congress has a couple of digitised maps that refer to it.
