At the Edwards Field fight turkey tails were suddenly elevated above the heads of the savages, as a signeal for firing and for the purpose of halting the whites. Uncle Ben, being wide awake, cried out “Indians!”, when a volley of rifles was fired at the noble little band of white men, consisting of Col John McGrew, Silas Scarborough, and … a few others.

Family notes:
• Jean and Marie lived on a concession of land called Belle Fontaine, located 18 miles below Mobile on Fowl River. One source says that this land was approximately 5,000 acres.

These four men and their families then left Mobile and moved into the area around the Bay of St. Louis and Wolf River.
• P. D. Nicaise’s theory is that the name Nicaise originally meant “resident of Nice” (a city in Southern France); just as Francaise means “French” or “resident of France”.

7/3/1727, Jean attended the formal wedding of his father and mother. (S) No. 350 Family notes.
3/1/1734, Jean married Marie in Pascagoula, MS. “On March 1, 1734, I, a Capuchin apostolic missionary priest, in his function as Pastor of Fort Conde of Mobile and the Pascagoulas and dependent [area], after the publi¬cation of one marriage bann at the parochial Mass on Septuagesima Sunday, February 21, without having received any impediments, and having given a dispensation for the two other (banns), between Jean Baptiste Baudrau, Creole of Dauphin Island, son of Jean Baptiste Baudrau dit Graveline, Captain of the Militia, resident of the Pasca¬goulas, and Suzanne, his father and mother, on one part; and Marie Catherine Vinconnau of La Rochelle, daughter of the deceased Louis Vinconnau, master tailor of garments, and of Catherine Doussin, wife in second nuptials of Joseph Simon dit La Pointe, resident of the Pascagoulas, have received their mutual consent and given the nuptial blessing with the ordinary ceremonies of the Church at the home of the said La Pointe, in presence of the undersigned witnesses and me on the day and year as above.” /s/ Fr. Matthias, Apostolic Missionary. (S) MAA, BB1, P102. – Witnesses signing were: Jean Baptist Baudrau, father of the groom; (Charles) Egron (dit La Motte); Christian (Ladner); (Francois) Rilieux, spouse of Marie Renee Alexandre dit Chenet; Nicholas Bodin (dit Miragouin); Pierre Millon (son-in-law of Joseph Simon); Nicolas Rousseau (resident of Dauphine Island in 1730’s who later moved to LA’s German Coast). The wedding took place in the home of Joseph Simon dit la Pointe in Pascagoula. (S) Love’s Legacy, P29.
10/10/1734 on Dauphin Island, baptism of Catherine Roussau, “Godparents were … by proxy of Jean Baptiste Baudreau dit Graveline, and Catherine Vinconneau, wife of Mr. Boudrau, Jr., who have named her Catherine. In faith I have signed on the day and year above with said Bodrau. The godmother made her mark, stating she could not write.” (S) SRAoM, #726.
6/20/1735, Jean witnessed a marriage. (S) Love’s Legacy, P95.
11/3/1736, “The year 1736, the 3rd of November, we priest, Capuchin, apostolic missionary, acting as pastor of Fort Conde of Mobile, of the Pascagoulas, and dependencies have supplied the ceremonies of baptism to Jean Baptiste Boderau and to Marie Boderau, the boy born on the 14th of Sep. 1736, the girl on the 4th of Jan. 1735, legitimate son and daughter of Jean Boderau and Catherine Chenet, the godfather Jean Baptiste Boderau, and the godmother Marie Joseph Simon dit LaPointe for the boy, those of the girl Thomas Desessigne, the godmother Catherine Doussin.” (S) MAA, MB1, P16a. [Marie “Chenet” was also present for multiple baptisms. The confusion of who was who is obvious from the mark through on the baptism on the same day of Francois Rilieaux, P125. Jean was named the godfather and Marie the godmother of the same child being baptized, with her name given as “Vinconnau”. Catherine Chenet is obviously Marie Chenet, but the names were mixed. On the same day, Jean and Catherine were godparents for a negro boy being baptized who belonged to Marie’s godfather. (S) Love’s Legacy, P129.]
5/30/1742, “On May 30, 1742, I, the undersigned, certify to have performed the ceremony of baptism on a girl born on January 13, 1742, from the legitimate marriage of Jean Baptiste Boudrot and Catherine Vicconneau, the godfather being Bobe Desloseaux, the godmother Mrs. Grondel, who gave the child the name of Louise Catherine. They have signed the document with me.” /s/ Ferdinand, Capucin. (S) MAA, BB1, P141.
They moved to New Orleans, “beyond the city, opposite the residence of Mr. Demorand.”. (S) See 8/14/1752.
1743, One of Jean’s liaisons was with young Marie Huet. He was a frequent visitor to her father’s plantation at San Souci, delivering cattle from Pascagoula. He took advantage of the opportunities afforded when the Widow Huet left the San Souci plantation to deliver cattle to his father’s place in Pascagoula. A friendship soon became a love affair. The fact that he was a married man with four children did not seem to be a concern. It wasn’t long before Marie Huet found herself pregnant.
12/1743, Jean took Marie Henrietta Huet as a consort and fled to Havana with a couple of slaves to tend Marie who was about to have their first child. (S) Love’s Legacy, P79. She was born ~1730. She was from the prominent family of Guillaume Huet and Perrine Rivouet. [Their love story is told in the romantic historical novel The Passions Of Princes by Eloise Genest.]
7/1744, Jean350 sailed down to Cuba to return his son, Jean Baptiste, to provincial Louisiana where he faced kidnapping charges as filed by Marie Henriette’s guardian. Marie Henriette was returned to Oyster Point on a separate ship. Marie was apparently pregnant with their son Pierre on the return voyage since he was born the following spring. Marie was put under “house arrest” by her guardian.

Family notes:
• Jean was lionized by the local Indians who considered him “one of them”, especially since his mother was an Indian. According to Pickett’s “History of Alabama”, he was “a powerful man, as to strength, and almost a giant in size, and these qualities, together with his bravery and prowess endeared him to the Indians.” He was readily accepted by the French Canadians, and reviled by the French governing authorities who held bitter thoughts towards the French Canadians, even though he was an interpreter for them with the Indians. Because of his knowledge of the area and acceptance by the Indians, he was also a courier for Bienville. He soon became involved in one scrape after another... with his father there to bail him out.
• 8/5/1752: “The Superior Council of Louisiana has seen the petition presented by the wife of Baudreau saying that by the lavish¬ness and bad business contracted every day, her said husband is exposing her and her family to total ruin by having sold almost the last of her Negroes, despite the considerable merchandise that he has taken from here for the price of the said Negroes. He has contracted to sell them at New Orleans and Mobile for 1000 livres of debt. As a result, she finds herself in straits and decides to put herself at the mercy of the fairness of the Council, so that there can emerge a sepa¬ration of goods to put what goods that belong to her and her children under an umbrella of safety. She reasserts by her contract of marriage the many acquisitions made, her care and work and the help given by her mother during her husband’s civil death. She wants preservation of the goods made to her children by her deceased mother and by Mr. Laville, according to the attached papers. She offers to prove her honor by having four witnesses of faith, Messrs. …, to testify to the bad conduct of her husband and who will affirm that she has always tried to be patient, but hope for change in her husband needs force in this instance. …. She asks that he please make his report ordering a separation of goods and that, as a result, 13 horned cattle brought by contract of marriage be set aside as well as surety of 3000 livres of dowry, the house and the land it is on in the city (mortgaged), and that Baudreau be forbidden to take any more cows given to the children by her mother or by Mr. Laville; also that she be permitted to take the negresse Marie and her family at Valentin, who have been of help by their care and work and who were furnished her by her deceased mother. ….

• “On October 30, 1754, 9 o’clock in the morning, before me, Jean Baptiste Raguet, Councilor …, there appeared Catherine Vinconneau, separated wife, as regards the goods of Jean Baptiste Baudreau, resident of this colony and authorized by law to pursue her rights according to the decision of the Council on November 11, 1752; who told us and stated that she would provide what is needed to the Council, in the separation of goods with the said Baudreau, her husband awaiting his waste and his debts, that the decision would take place which permitted him to make an inquiry about the facts she exposed, that after the said inquiry made, another decision had taken place on it on November 5, 1752, that would have ordered that she would live separated as regards that the goods shared with her said husband; that she would recover all her goods, real and personal that she could find which had been brought to the marriage and an inventory would be made, and give him an act of renunciation that she made to the community with her said hus-band that as it is agreed under seal and decreed the said separation by means of the said inventory or sale of personal property in case the goods are not found, she re¬quires that we please her by coming to the house and place of her said husband located at New Orleans, so as to proceed with the said inventory and put things in her hands, as be¬longing to her, and which are justified by her contract of marriage under date of 1 March 1734, and by act of division of goods of the deceased Catherine Doucin, her mother, under date of 22 April 175[2]. On this, I the judge, … order that we be taken now to the house of the said Baudreau. On the said day and year, I … was transported …, in the said house of Baudreau, found beyond this city opposite the residence of Mr. Demorand, so as to evaluate as needed the effects that will be given to the said Vinconneau and to make an inventory conformable to the desire of the deci¬sion before dated; where being in the said house, we have found the said Baudreau, whom we apprised of the contents of the said decision and summoned him to tell us of the goods and effects which his wife had brought conformable to the contracts of marriage and division dated before and all others which could be hers, expired or to come. The said Baudreau, here present, told us that in order to avoid all other proceedings and to end these differences as amiably as possible, he consents to remit everything pres¬ently and in the manner in which she brought it to him in marriage or in any other way, it not being necessary to make any estimation or evaluation, wishing to give her all that she had brought. He has remitted to the said Vinconneau 13 horned cattle which she has chosen and taken at her choice and for which she is content. Item, he also, in like manner, remitted at the time of things taken in a division made at Mobile among the said Vinconneau and her brothers and sisters coming from the said Doucin, her mother, which consists in one Indian woman of about 45 years named Babet and her daughter Elizabeth, of about nine years. Item, ….” (S) MCH&GS, V23, #3, PP83–86.
• In 1757, Jean was put to death by order of Governor Kerlerec. Some of the officers, stationed at the different posts, were great tyrants. One of them, named Duroux, was sent to command a detachment of troops of a Swiss regiment, who were stationed at Cat Island. He forced his soldiers to work his gardens and to burn coal and lime. Some of them, who refused to work for him, he caused to be arrested. These soldiers appealed to New Orleans, receiving no satisfaction from Governor Kerlerec. One day Duroux rowed to an adjacent island to go hunting. Returning in the evening, a party of the soldiers killed him. Becoming masters of the island, the soldiers set at liberty an inhabitant, named Baudreau, who had been imprisoned by Duroux for salvaging goods from a wrecked Spanish vessel. He was known for his relationships with the Indians and familiarity with the territory. The soldiers compelled him to conduct them towards Georgia. Baudreau led them around Mobile and up the Tombigbee. He was released by the fugitives, whom he compelled to give him a certificate, stating that he had been forced to act as their guide, and was not in any way involved with the killing of Duroux. Governor Kerlerec sent a sealed package to DeVille, the commandant at Mobile, authorizing his imprisonment. Even though he exhibited upon the trial his certificate, which declared his innocence of the murder, a court martial condemned him to die. As soon as Governor Kerlerec confirmed the judgment Baudreau was “led forth and broken upon a wheel”. An account of his trial and execution is told in (S) The History of Alabama by Albert Pickett, Chapter XVI “The Horrible Death of Baudrot and the Swiss Soldiers”, P304. [The torturous means by which he was executed was shown at the end of the movie “Braveheart”.] The people of Mobile were shocked at the spectacle. To quote Pickett: “Such a man was [Jean Baptiste], whom the French authorities in Mobile broke upon a wheel! His life was worth a thousand such lives as that of the tyrannical wretch whom he was accused of having killed.” It is said Kerlerec, fearing an uprising of both the colonists and the Indians, had Jean Baptiste’s body parts thrown into the river so there would be no grave to visit.
• 1799, Genevieve, d/o Catherine, lived with her aunt, Marie Catherine Mazurier. Having no children of her own, Marie Catherine generously left her estate to her niece as follows: “I declare myself the widow of Monsieur Mazurier by whom I have no children, nor heirs to my property, but I have had with me from her early childhood my niece, Genevieve, legitimate daughter of Joseph Bosarge and Louisa Bodreau, my sister, whom with me much love and affection I have raised, and being now arrived at year of maturity, waits upon me, and assists me in my sickness and infirmities, with so much care that she is even dearer than if she were my own daughter, and in gratitude to her for her affectionate kindness, I have constituted her, and do make her, the sole heir to all my property, goods, movable and unmovable, so that no law nor any person, nor relation of mine shall disturb, or oppose in this inheritance, since it is my will of God, and with mine, without being obliged to make an inventory therefore or submit to any other formality, but to collect and to enjoy all and everything that belonged to me, and I subject her to no other obligation but to satisfy all my just debts, hereby revoking and annulling all other wills, codicils, and power to make a will for me, that I may have made by writing, or by word of mouth. In testimony whereof this is done in the town of Mobile, this fifth day of December, 1799”. /s/ Widow Mazurier.

Family notes:
• Most likely Antoine had taught his son Jean the “joiner” trade. His father was a good teacher because in time he was a master joiner. Some records refer to him as a master cabinet maker. Only fourteen days after Jeanne gave birth to Marguerite Genevieve, she died; nine children were left without a mother. Jean remarried about a month later. Jean died suddenly in 1756, three years after his father, leaving a large family to the care of his widow.
• Marie was apparently adopted. Her parents are deceased at her wedding, and Nicholas Bellier is identified as her “parent”. He also witnessed the baptism of Marie Radegonde. Her uncle from Liernes attended her wedding and signed “Carre”.

~1617, Elizabeth born in Bristol, England, d/o 1218. John Cary & 1219. Elizabeth Herford. [Elizabeth’s last name was undecipherable in his will. The choice of her last name is based on circumstantial evidence.

Multiple cousins and siblings of Elizabeth Cary, d/o John, immigrated to MA and VA.]

The said land formerly granted to Robert … and lately found to be released to his grantor by an injunction recorded on the … fine under the hand and date of Sir William Alford for the said County and a jury sworn before him to that purpose. Dated the 17th day of November 1670, may I now grant to ye said Michael King who has made his mark.” (S) VA Land Patents, No.6, V1, P479.
2/24/1675, “To all whereas now know ye that the said Sir William Barkley, Lieutenant Governor, give and grant unto Michael King nine hundred acres of land lying in the Upper Parish of Nansemond County on the way to the South Key at a nicked red oak standing near the head of a Branch that comes from Somerton Swamp then due West 220 poles to a nicked pine in a reedy portion thence SW by S 440 poles to a nicked red oak thence SE 280 poles to a nicked white oak standing by the Mamie Run of Swamp that comes from Somerton butting on the land of John Winborne, Broome and Robinson thence by or near the said Mamie Swamp NE by N 670 poles to the first station.

Bef. 1704, Michael died in Nansamond Co., VA.
A will of “Mr. Michael King Senior” of the Nansemond Co., VA was proved by a subscription of William Early and the oath of John Early. “On petition of William Early and John Early ordered that Mr. John King pay to William Early and John Early for their travel and attendance for two days with costs and executions.” [They apparently traveled to son John’s plantation in NC.]

In the presence of the undersigned witnesses, with me they made their mark.” /s/ Father Matthias, Capuchin. /s/ Michael Paquet (uncle). (S) Love’s Legacy, P53. (S) CIC, MB1, P6. [Note that only Jean is a “natural” parent of Magdelaine. “and an Indian” implies she is her mother, but not her “natural” mother.]
4/20/1728, “Marie Magdelaine, wife of Pierre Paquet”, at Fort Conde, Mobile, was the godmother to Marie Magdelaine Egron, whose mother was an Indian. (S) SRAoM, #527.
4/21/1728, Pierre, at Fort Conde, Mobile, was the godfather to Jean Baptiste Renauld, whose mother was an Indian. (S) SRAoM, #528.
Bef. 1731 Pierre, a tailor, purchased land on the MS River from a free Negro named John Baptiste. (S) Census Tables 1699–1732.
4/5/1736, “On April 5, 1736, I, a Capuchin Missionary Apostolic priest, performing the function of Cure at Fort Conde of Mobile, Vicar General of Monsignor, the Bishop of Quebec, have baptized with the ordinary ceremonies of baptism Marie Marthe, born May 4, 1735, of the legitimate marriage of Pierre Paquet, resident of LaBaye, and Magdelaine, the natural daughter of Sieur Bodraud dit Graveline, her father and mother.

In faith of which I have signed with the proxy godfather the day and year as above.” /s/ Father Matthias, Vicar General. (S) SRAoM, #767.
10/1737, Pierre obtained permission to work in Pensacola. 10/24/1737 letter from D’Artaguettte to Maurepas: “M. de Bienville had permitted an inhabitant named Paquet to go and work at Pensacola.

1747, Marie died, probably in the childbirth of daughter Magdelaine. (S) Family notes.
3/15/1748, letter to 1st Magistrate of LA: “Mr. Raguet … has the honor of informing you that it has been 10 to 12 years since the man named Paquest, a settler who had married and established himself near the Pascagoula river, escaped from this country. Since that time we have had no news of his whereabouts, and it has been within the past several months that the woman whom he had married has died on that homestead. She has left a young girl of about 13 to 14 years of age with some personal belongings and livestock which are now left in the hands of and in the care of Alexandre St. Martin who treats them as they were his own, and since it concerns us that a guardian ought to be elected for this minor, for the purpose of recovering her goods and arguing in her behalf of her interests as regards those things which might be hers. …” (S) LA State Museum Document, March 15, 1748. – Francois Alexandre Chenet dit St. Martin has custody of Marie Marthe and her possessions. It is possible that he is the actual father of the last three children. Marie in 1767 claims she is the only heir, yet Marie Anne87 is married and living on Cat Island. It could be that Marie Marthe did not know she was still alive; or, she knew that Marie Anne was d/o Francois. The guardianship issue did not include Marie Anne. It was definitely possible that Pierre returned secretly and fathered the children. It is also documented that Marie Ann called herself Marie Anne St. Martin, after about 1760. An “Anne Alexander Chenet” figures prominently in the church records of Fort Conde. Vincent Chenet was the godfather to Magdeleine.
3/19/1748, a guardian appointed for daughter Marthe. “On 3/19/1748, before … of the Superior Council of LA, … served notice of summons on the same day for the following to appear in court: Michael Paquet, Jean Baptiste Boudreau Graveline, … Mr. Paquet is the uncle of Marthe Paquet (d/o minor age of Pierre Paquet and Magdelaine Pany, her parents); the others, friends or distant relatives of the girl. They assembled in order to give their guidance in the selection of a tutor for the child and also to select a suitable person to be a guardian of everything belonging to her. … They made know their choice, after deliberation, … The group named as tutor for the child her uncle Michael Paquet, as guardian, Chantalou, because of his good qualities. … They made their marks.” /s/ Paquet, …, Baudrau, …. (S) LA State Museum record, March 19, 1748. From this we know that Marthe was provided with some form of education.
4/25/1748, “On April 25, 1748, I, the Capuchin Superior of the mission of the same order, baptized with the ceremonies of the Church, Marie Anne, six years of age, the legitimate daughter of Pierre Paquet and Magdelaine, of Indian and white parents, her mother and father.
