I looked at the archives of the département du Gers.
This départment is among the last one to display on-line old registers. Therefore we have to wait until end of 2019 or up to 2021 to be able to see them.
However, some decennial tables and census list of Villecomtal are available.
These findings have to be confirmed when the whole document are displayed.
