  • Notes 
    • Antoine, a minor in 1748, d. Natchitoches 11 Dec. 1768.
      Like his brother Jacques, Antoine served as an officer of the Marines until 1762 and subsequently (1766-68) as an officer in the reserve (half-pay) forces. Although he never married, Antoine fathered one child at Natchitoches, Theodore Antoine, by a slave named Marguerite dite Yancdon belonginq to Mme. Marie des Heiges de St. Denis de Soto. Shortly before his death, Antoine purchased his son from the infantls owner with the intention of freeing him but died without doing so. The child was inherited by Antoine's sister Pelagie (Mme. de Mezieres), who left him with his mother at the de Soto residence. After the removal of the de Sotos to Opelousas and the concurrent deaths of M. and Mme. de Mezieres, Fazende heirs filed suit against the de Sotos to reclaim the boy, now aged 14. In the last relevant document of record, a determined Mme. de Soto was still refusing to relinquish him -- even in the face of an edict from the governor -- claiming that justice demanded the young mants manumission. The outcome of the case cannot be documented from extant records, but no trace of Theodore Antoine as a free adult has been found.

    Died:
    • Date of death is estimated from burial date.
