*"Billeter--Francois Marie Picote de Bellestre was the last French Commandant at Detroit. He died at Quebec about May 20, 1793. At that time he was member of the legislative council of Lower Canada."
"Two men were placed in ambuscade...who, on O'Leary's approach, fired at him." "Another shot from the soldiers laid him dead on the road."
