Talk:Marcos de Villiers
Jump to navigation Jump to search
A lot of this is pieced together from fragments that seem to fit, but my sources are not all authoritative. I would like to do more "hard" research on both de Villiers and Guillemard. --Admin 08:11, 1 August 2007 (CDT)
Made a few changes:
- It looks like De Villiers and Guillemard weren't imprisoned in the calaboose after all; I had misread Walton's correspondence.
- Pretty sure Marcos was the son, not grandson, of François Coulon. The dates and the interchangeable "Marc" and "Marcos" names got me mixed up. The "Jumonville" name (found in one of several sources that name his wife) seems to confirm this. (From this article on François: "To have lived another decade and thereby come under American rule would have been bitter indeed for a nobleman who had named his youngest son Jumonville, in memory of the brother slain by George Washington.")
