He died Scalped and killed by Iroquois Indians in 1693 at the age of 52 in Pointe-aux-Trembles (Québec Province), Canada.80 Jeanne HUNAULT (HUNAUT) and Adrien QUÉVILLON80,251 were married on 2 February 1672 in Montréal (Nôtre Dame)(Québec Province), Canada.1,2124 They appeared in the census in 1681 in Montréal (Québec Province), Canada.

2641. Jeanne HUNAULT (HUNAUT) was baptized on 2 November 1658 in Montréal (Nôtre Dame)(Québec Province), Canada.1,2125 She Tutorship on 9 October 1708 in Montréal (Québec Province), Canada.2126 She died on 5 September 1748 in (Québec Province), Canada.1,2127 Jeanne was buried on 6 September 1748 in Rivière-des-Prairies (Saint-Joseph) (Québec Province), Canada.1,2127

NOTE: Adrien, Jeanne and two of their daughters were victims of the 1693 Pointe-aux-Trembles Indian raids known as "le Massacre du la Chenaie". Adrien was killed and scalped while Jeanne and the two daughters were taken captive by the Indians. One of the daughters, Francoise Angelique - age 12, was burned to death as her mother and sister watched. They were then, supposedly, forced to eat of her charred flesh. During their captivity, Jeanne was forced to accept the advances of the Iroquois and produced a child (Louis Augustin). Jeanne and her daughter, Catherine, were eventually set free along with Louis. (I've seen some indications that Catherine had a child by an Indian prior to her release.) Upon her release by the Iroquois, supposedly Jeanne arrived with Jacques Corval and he was possibly presented as her husband. It is unclear if they were ever married but he was listed on the baptism as the father of Louis Augustin (recorded at Pointe-aux-Trembles on 4 June 1698 when Louis was 18 months old). Was the really the father or was he simply protecting Jeanne's honor? That is unknown. It appears, however, that he disappeared shortly thereafter.

[Note: As mentioned above, Jeanne was possibly joined in a 2nd marriage to Jacques Corval but it is unclear if they were actually married. She then married Pierre Taillefer on 7 May 1699 at Nôtre Dame in Montréal.]
