      (2) Henriette was a daughter of Jean Colon dit Laviolette and his first wife, the Indian cahterine Exipakin8a. The numeral 8 was used by the French for an Indian sound similar to oui and huit.

      Furthermore, was not one of the respected inhabitants of Mobile, Jean Colon, dit La Violette (living at Mobile now with his Indian wife, Catherine Exipakinoea, and two children) living proof of how such [interracial] unions could prosper? Had not two of Bienville's esteemed Jesuits, Gabriel Marst and Julien Binneteau, baptized several of Colon's infants while Colon was still at Kaskaskia?
