When the Karankawa Indians murdered the La Salle expedition settlers in Dec. 1688, Marie-Madeleine, Lucien fils, and Robert were taken to live with the Indians. After the Spanish under Alonso De Leon had rescued Pierre from the Hasinai Indians, they also rescued Marie-Madeleine, Lucien, and Robert from the Karankawas. All four children were taken to Mexico to be servants in the house of Spanish Viceroy Gaspar de la Cerda Sandoval Silva y Mendoza, Conde de Galve. When the viceroy and his wife retired early in 1696 and returned to Spain, Marie-Madeleine and Robert went with them. Marie-Madeleine soon went to France, where she married in 1699. Eventually, she returned to Canada.

He witnessed La Salle's murder, and was left to live with Hasinai (Tejas) Indians. He was taken from the Hasinai in 1690 by Spanish under Alonso de Leon, and transported to Mexico with his siblings to be servants in the house of Spanish Viceroy Conde de Galve. Before the viceroy left Mexico (in 1696), Pierre, Jean-Baptiste, and Lucien were enrolled as soldiers in the Armada de Barlovento in Veracruz, which was commanded by Andres de Pez y Malzarraga. They took ship on the flagship Santo Cristo de Maracaibo, under Admiral Guillermo Morfi. The French captured the Santo Cristo in the Caribbean Sea near Havana in 1697, and the brothers were taken to France. In 1698, Lucien became a servant at Oléron; no more is known of him. Pierre and Jean-Baptiste entered French naval service. Eventually, they were interrogated for their stories, and joined the second expedition of Pierre le Moyne d'Iberville to Louisiana as soldiers under the command of Louis Juchereau de St. Denis. They remained in the colony for two years, and then returned to France with Iberville in April 1702 to look for their sister Marie-Madeleine. Two years later, they were in prison in Portugal, but the reason and the duration are not known. No more is known directly of Jean-Baptiste. In 1714, Pierre and Robert were in Texas with St. Denis, where they interpreted with the Indians. Eventually they went to Mobile, and reported to governor Cadillac. Pierre is said to have died in France, and Jean-Baptiste in Louisiana. Robert settled in Mobile.
