  • Notes 
    • His parentage is unknown. He was killed in the raid on Saco on 10 Aug 1703, and his wife Sarah and his three daughters were taken, either in that raid or one immediately following. His wife and all three daughters were subsequently baptized into the Catholic church in MontrĂ©al, one of them posthumously. On baptism, Sarah became Marie-Catherine and Deborah became Madeleine (sometimes said to have been Marie-Madeleine). According to several sources, Sarah eventually returned to New England, but we've been unable to confirm this.
