"At a time when skilled men were in short supply  the passing away of a valuable artisan like Duriau was a distinct loss to the villagers of colonial Natchitoches.  He did not live long enough in the northern piney hills to reap a financial reward.  (Unlike Blacksmith Barbier who left his widow 20000 "livres" at his death.) 

Taking his place in the village, Mailloux seems to have done rougher work than Durio."

 Ignace Mailloux (Mayoux, Mayeux) 1771
Smith and Small Merchant (35 years old in 1771?)

Apparently Mailloux succeeded Durio.  He may have come from New Orleans like his wife Therese Blibot.  Although he was poor, he was a good man and a good blacksmith, maybe not quite as versatile as Durio.  Esteemed by de Mezieres and Dupain, he received their assistance when he needed them to keep his home and tools when troublemaker Auret tried to quarrel with him as he did with others.  It is probable he worked on the "new Church".  In 1774 his name was listed as a "notable" a distinct honor. As an artisan he would have been barred from such an honor roll in Western Europe, even though feudal classes were on the wane there.  This is a distinct instance of precedent making by de Mezieres, a just man.

Chronology: Ignace Mailloux

1773-Mailloux petitioned de Mezieres to ask him to talk to Mr. deVilliers to establish that deVeze's succession owed him 15 livres for a hatchet. Approved by de Layssard, of Rapides.

1773-Ignace Mailloux's account with Merchant Villard; he owed him 485 L. 1 s. 1 d.

1774 Ignace Mailloux, smith.  His apprentice: Joseph Boulet, son of Verger, stepson of Joseph Lattier, nephew of Gaspard Derbanne.

1774 His apprentice, Joseph Boulet, son of Verger ? (son-in-law of Joseph Lattier, nephew of Gaspard Derbannes)

1774 Mailloux sold a horse to Merchant Villard (credited as payment to Mailloux's account)

1774 Pierre Villard sold half an acre of land "in the Bourg" to Mailloux for 400L.

1774 Pierre Dupain, ranking creditor of Ignace Mailloux, received a request from Jean Pierre Villard who holds a mortgage on the house and land of Mailloux and wants them seized.  Far from him to ask for the sale of his smithy, the item most worthwhile: it would deprive Mailloux of his livelihood and the means to work to pay his debts.  Therefore Pierre Dupain petitioned to have legal proceedings against him stopped forthwith. (Mailloux, Creditors Auret and Villard to be notified.  signed: de Meziers)

1775 Mailloux gave his proxy to Mathieu Robert, residing at des Allemands to collect 300 "livres" (in his wife's name) for "hire" in New Orleans.

1775 Ignace Mailloux hired Jean Baptiste Lorange, "habitant", for one year from date to execute whatever work will be assigned to him.  Salary: 270 L payable in trade goods.

1776 Pierre Sorel and Ignace Mailloux both forgerons.

1776 Ignace Mailloux, forgeron

Claim # 66-Andre Rambin, two hundred and fifty-nine and fifty one hundreths acres, claimed under a title to Ignace Mailloux.  The notice of this claim is for part of a tract of land, of which the title has been confirmed by certificate B, No 2,043.  This confirmation was made through mistake, or a want of correct information in favor of the heirs of Francois Roquier for the whole of the original tract.  It is very evident that Andre Rambin is entitled to the part which he claims; and, as this right is admitted by the heirs of Roquier, there is no likelihood of his right being impaired by the confirmation of the title as above.  This claim, therefore, needs no further confirmation.

The notice is unaccompanied by any document of evidence of title; but, on the abstract of Spanish grants, there is one which comports with the description given in the notice of the claim., from which it is presumable this claim may be a valid one, and ought to be confirmed.  From a want of the documents of title to enable the commissioners to describe the land, and designate its limits in their certificate, they are constrained to report this claim, but, recommending it's confirmation, agreeably to the tenor of the patent, which may hereafter be produced by the claimant.
