Jean Baptiste Colon dit La Violette, late 1690s French-Canadian voyageur, wed my Kaskaskia Illini, Native American ancestress Mdm. Catherine E8ipakin8ca. They died old up-river Mobile, Alabama, and had my Mrs. Henriette Colon Rochon, baptised Nav. 27, 1698, age one month, at Fort Kaskaskia, Illinois Military District. Gov. Henri de Tontey was Mdm. Rochon's godfather; and his brother, Capt. Antoine de Tontey (di Tonti) was godfather of Mdm. Rochon's twin brother, Henri Colon. Sibling John James Colon was baptised May 12, 1697, and Michael Colon was baptised Oct. 4, 1692. Jean Baptiste Colon wed second Marguerite Praux, and had seven children by her. My Henriette wed Canadian to Mobile, Alabama, Charles Rochon, Sr., who 1714 owned 1,000 cattle on Hollinger's Island, off Mobile, Alabama. Daughter Mdm. Marie Henriette Rochon, born February 17, 1720, wed Sieur Jean Pierre Gabriel Francois de Juzan, His Spanish Majesty's Indian Commissionerto Alabama, and DAR allie Patriot for runing Spanish service counter intelligence agents amongst the Indians, against English agents amongst the Indians. My Kaskaskia Illini name in English is 'Walkslowly' meaning turtle; in late 1600's colonial French, it is Ne-p8-pa-t8-8a; and in Kaskaskia it is Na-poo-pah-too-wah. Mdm Colon's Kaskaskia name was Ayw-wee-pah-kee-noo-kah. J.A.L.Miller, Jr., Charlotte & Southport, N.C.
