Birth: 1670
Death: 1689
Quebec, Canada

Charles Beloncle dit Fugere was born in 1670. He married Petronille Andre dit St. Michel on August 1, 1689 in Lachine, Quebec.

The new couple settled in Lachine on the island of Montreal, Quebec near her parents. Only a few days after their wedding, on the night of August 5, 1689, during a heavy rain storm, between 1000-1500 Iroquois silently crossed the river to Lachine. They crept through the woods and surrounded the farm houses and homesteads and attacked the surprised settlers. The Indians broke out windows and doors attacking settlers or setting fire to homes where the victims had barricaded themselves. Fifty-six of 76 homes were burned that night.

Approximately 24 men, women and children were killed during the attack and their homes and buildings were burned. About 80 others were taken prisoner. Fifty of the captives were tortured by fire or cannibalized. Some escaped. Some were exchanged. A few children were integrated into the tribes.

Charles and his wife Petronille were taken captive by the Iroquois and died in captivity along his father-in-law Michel, mother-in-law Francoise, and sister-in-law Gertrude along with other family members. The location of their of their bodies is unknown.

A monument in the Lachine cemetery honors the victims of the massacre.
