Francois Tesson

In 1827, which Francois Tesson traveled to France with six Osage (Ki-He-Kah Shinkah, Mi-Ho地-Ga, Washinka Sabe, Gthe-Do地-Wi地, Mo地-Sho地 A-ki-Da Tonkah, and Minckchatahooh)? Was it Francois Tesson born in 1770 to Louis Honore Tesson and Magdeleine Pitre?

David Delaunay, who organized the trip, is reported to have abandoned the Osage in France. The group split and traveled Europe, trying to get home. Paul Loise, who went along as an interpreter, returned in 1830 with Little Chief (Ki-He-Kah Shinkah), Hawk Woman (Gthe-Do地-Wi地), Big Soldier (Mo地-Sho地 A-ki-Da Tonkah) and Louis son. Sacred Son (Mi-Ho地-Ga) and her baby traveled home with Black Bird (Washinka Sabe) and Minchkchatahooh, but the two men died of smallpox aboard the ship.

What happened to Francois Tesson? Did he leave with Delaunay? Did he die in Europe? (The Francois Tesson born in 1770 died in 1827).
