Pierre Gauthier and wife Charlotte Roussel were living in Lachine, Quebec, Canada, a small island near Montreal in the 1600s.
On August 5, 1689 around 1500 Iroquois attacked the small number of inhabitants on the island...
both Pierre and his wife were taken. It is believed Charlotte died while in captivity, however
Pierre is seen again in records 10 years later at an old age.
