i have recieved the following information from another descendant, richard pentecost of shawnee mission, kansas.
it was collected in the early part of the 1900s from the
state archives of new york state at albany.
from vol II, pg 818, State Archives of New York.
"from volume II, pg 818 of the "documents relating to the colonial history of the state of new york." JR Broadford, editor, albany, 1855."
this notation, which surely refers to jean deniau (denault, daignault, etc)and his wife helene daudin.
"Some of our Indian partisans who were in the direction of Orange, had captured some prisoners but were obliged to let them go on being discovered by a party of thirty men who were much stronger than they. On their return, they reported that it was, according to all appearances, greatly
to be feared that the enemy would fall on the southern districts. They did, in fact, appear at Tremblay, within two leagues of Montreal, on the 12th of August, 1695, where they killed an old woman and a man, after which they carried off two other women, one man and four young children."
As more info becomes available I will post it here.
