bore a son, also named Pierre, in 1699. The family probably took
up residence in Canada, for the son was married at Charlesbourg
on February lo, 1719, and later lived in Quebec."
The testimony of La Salle's survivors concerning the ill-fated set-
tlement on the Texas coast is vague on many points, and often con-
flicting and confusing. But amid the confusion one fact stands out:
from Mississippi to New Mexico-Biloxi to Santa Fe-they served
both France and Spain as explorers and colonizers. Joutel's Journal
guided d'Iberville in his discovery and settlement of the French
Louisiana colony, while Father Douay accompanied him. The Talon
brothers served France as soldiers, guides, and interpreters. Meunier,
L'Archevque, and Grollet aided the Spanish reconquest and settle-
ment of New Mexico, leaving their descendants to help populate the
sparse land. And all of them helped to sow the early seeds of civiliza-
tion in the South and Southwest.
