Done and decided (portion torn) Inspector of Troops
of the Province of Louisiana at Sotehouy 18 February 1723.
NOTE: ? in the column "Children" indicates the document is torn and data
missing. Almost certainly, with seven women enumerated, there were more
than two white children in Arkansas in 1723.
JAN HEREHET may not be the correct interpretation of this name.
