From: "Kaskaskia Under the French Regime" By Natalia Maree Belting; University of Illinois Press Urbana: 1948. Note: A free digitized version: Kaskaskia Under The French Regime.

Veuve Legras It is difficult to say just to whom this entry refers, for there were in the Illinois country three brothers Legras and a fourth man of the same name who may have been another brother or a son of one of them. Jean Baptiste Legras, interpreter and merchant of Montreal, was their father. By his first wife, Marie Genevieve Maillet, he had seven children, among them a son, Daniel, baptized at Montreal February 16, 1698. (Tanguay, V, 300). Daniel married Susanne Kerami, an Indian, widow of Antoine Beausseron dit Leonard, at Kaskaskia June 7, 1728. (Regisire de la Paroisse). She died October 28, 1747. (Kaskaskia ;Mss., Private Papers, V). Daniel died about January 14, 1748. (Ibid.).

By his second wife, Marie Philippe, Jean Baptiste had four children, two of them sons: Jean Baptiste and Charles Dominique, who went to the Illinois country also. Jean Baptiste, le jenne, was baptized April 8, 1705, and married Genevieve Gamelin January 11, 1733. Charles was baptized August 4, 1709, at Montreal and was killed on the Ohio in the latter part of 1741. A sale of his goods was made at Kaskaskia December 5, 1741. (Ibid., Private Papers, IV).
