    Notes 
    • In 1733, the family was living at Soulanges. Between 1741-1744 they were at St. Joseph-de-la-Riviere-des-Prairies. In 1746 they were back at Lachine. Jean Baptiste moved his family to Detroit 26 Jul 1749 where he had received a land grant of three arpents on the south shore of the river.

      We know that Jean Baptiste died sometime between March 1754 and the middle of 1755, so there has been speculation that he was part of Beaujeu's force that fought at Fort Duquesne in 1755. [SK]
