This is as far as I have gotten. As I have stated, I will have to pay to find out more about our ancestors. You have almost as much info as I do about these two.
I do not believe that they came to the New World. I have never seen mention of them except in documents concerning their children.
Their grandchildren through Cyprien include: 1)Nicolas Lacour b.04/09/1774 in Pointe Coupee and married Osite Frederique 02/03/1797; 2)Zenon bapt.07/29/1776 and married 02/03/1797 to Marguerite Frederique; 3)Cyprien b.05/18/1778 married 02/14/1797 to Genevieve Joffrion of Joseph Joffrion and Marie Francoise Bouchard; 4)Magdeleine Marguerite bapt. 10/06/1780 married Josephe-Marie de Blanc 01/13/1795 of Natchitoches; 5)Jean Louis b. 06/1783; 6)Leondre b.11/17/1785 married Eloise Gillard 07/02/1808; 7)Petronille b.09/05/1787 married 07/02/1808 Joseph Gillard; 8)Jean Marie b.11/22/1789 married Josephine Gillard 07/02/1808; 9)Cecile b.1792; 10)Gilbert b.1792 married 07/23/1811 Helene Joffrion, sister of Genevieve.
However, the Nicolas and Cyprien you refer to are NOT brothers. Nicolas was the grandfather of Cyprien. Nicolas, who lived in New Orleans until he married Perrine Brette, moved to Natchez. It was there that the child was killed. Nicolas and the other children were "out of town" and probably left the child with a sitter. I guess that they had had enough of fighting Indian, and went to Pointe Coupee with his friend. There were fewer people there and "free" or cheap land. Nicolas' son Nicolas, II, was the father of Cyprien. Nicolas, II,(Colin), married Magdeleine Armand after the death of his first wife, Marie Louise DeCuir. Now to add to confusion, Cyprien's nickname was also Colin.
So, yes, there are "roots" in New Orleans.
I hope this has been helpful.
