Rose, Eugene, Jean Baptiste, Maximillian, and Hilaire; all but Bernard Maurice 
became established in the vicinity of Mobile
Isabelle Narbone was the wife of Joseph Campbell, Peter Troillett and had a child with John Forbes. Her mother was Marie Anne Krebs. Her daughter Heloise Isabelle was the wife of James Innearity.
According to online genealogy, Alexis Troillett was the illegitmate mulatto son of Pierre/Peter Troilett.
Peter Troillet was a son of Marguerite Rochon.

The Rochon family come from Charles Rochon and Henriette Colon. Her brother Henri Colon (Collin) was also in mobile. Marguerite Rochon Troillett was the Aunt of Marie Louisa Favre's husband also named Augustine Rochon (Sr).

The Favre's, Jean and Etienne were early settlers. Marie Martha and Marie Louisa Fievre are both the children of Etienne (Steven) Fievre (I think it's Favre) and his wife was Marie Grise.

American State papers, indian affairs vol 4 part 2 1832

A slave what escaped gave names of those killed. Among them, McGirth, Jones, mcCarty, Sam Smith, Dixon Bailey and his two brothers, Mims and his family, Capt Melton, John Randall (Randon) and all his family except Peter Durant and one of his daughters, all killed. Many of dead he didn't know. McGirth's and Jones' wife and children except one of Mcgirth's children who was killed were taken. Another letter names the child as Vicy Randall (Randon) who was with Peter Durant  and was not in the fort.

Below is a list as published on the Web. My notes are next to it. NOTE, I do not have a list of soldiers who were at the fort, so I am unable to confirm them as victims. I have put in bold the names I agree where among the dead.

The following list was complied by Mr. David P. Mason and is excerpted from "Fort Mims and The Tensaw Settlement", by Dess L. and Tom Sangster, 1988. The booklet may be purchased from Coffeetable Publications, PO Box 884, Bay Minette, AL 36507.

  1. I was told that Samuel Mims wife, Hannah was in Mobile at time of Fort Mims Massacre.. She had several of her children with her. Hannah (or Anna) was sister of Cornelius Rain. Their mother, Margaret Lucas first married Cornelius Rain Sr in Georgia. 2nd married Moses Moore in Spanish West Florida (1789) and last husband was John Linder Sr.

    Daniel Johnston who married Elizabeth Linder was killed by Creeks in Jan 1816.

    Survivor of Ft Mims, Elizabeth Randon who was 4 yrs old at the time, Married James Alger Newman in Mississippi. After his death in 1854. She went to Texas with her children. She died in Ft. Bend County TX abt 1866.

    1. That is correct, Hannah and some of Samuel's children weren't at the fort.

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. Truly - a genealogy addict. GREAT stuff.

  3. Surviving slaves would not be on tax lists; nor would members of the Creek Nation.

    1. Since Mary Dyer and the Stiggins are listed, as is Peter Randon, not true. I never talked about the slaves because we don't have names for them

    2. that's the problem, disinterest in slaves because you lack names is no reason not to include their numbers -- dyer, stiggins, and randon passed for white and were regularly included in tax lists. true creeks did not, such as the durants, or mcgillivrays, the moniacs, or any of the sehoy lineage -- but otherwise a great job

  4. Do you have any info on Tensaw Creek/metis persons named Robinson? I'm a 7th gen descendent of a white soldier John Rotan who fought in the first Creek war and his Creek/metis wife Sarah Robinson. She seems to have been sister or dau of Richard Robinson (Creek.metis) & his wife Margaret Peggy Bailey (Creek/metis, probably a niece/cousin to Alexander MacGillivray. Peggy was a hero of Ft Mims --saved a group of women piloting them down river to Mobile). Peggy Bailey lost her brothers at Ft Mims. Richard & Peggy moved west afterwards and John and Sarah ultimately settled in the Alabama-Coushatta(Creek) res in Texas. Any Robinson (alternate Robertsons) show up anywhere in your research?

  5. You list the source of the 1813 & 1816 census as "Tracking Your Roots" which appears to be an abandoned site. Do you by any chance know the source of these two Census?

  6. What happened to the Linders after 1800? My gggf was John Linder Jr and gym was Sara Linder Henry (wife of Lemuel)
    Not seeing any Linders on the rolls
    John sold Honeycutt plantation of 5,000 acres and island bounded by Tensaw River on East and Lizard Creek on west of 8,000 acres both in 1811
