Francois' son Rene (1688-1756) was "a voyageur to the Sioux country;" In addition, Francois son' Francois Jr. (1690-1747) was a much-traveled militia major, and Jr.'s son Ignace (1734) was a voyageur who worked out of the trading post at Cahokia, Illinois -- marrying there in 1760. There were probably others in Francois' line who made at least occasional voyages, but clearly it was Louis' line that was more involved with the fur trade. Francois maintained a room in Quebec City and is believed to have been more concerned with the managing of the Grondines seigneurie's other business endeavors.
