    "By the early 1790s [Ste. Genevieve] had several billiard parlors. Nicolas Caillot dit Lachance fils [Jr., or Nicholas II]...may have been the first entrepreneur to open a billiard parlor in town." ["Colonial Ste. Genevieve," by CJ Ekbery, p. 324-5.]
    Late in 1792 Lachance sold a house in Ste. Genevieve to Francois Lalumandiere that was fitted out with a parlor. Lalumandiere, by the mid-1790's had 2 parlors.

    In 1797 he signed his sister, Pelagie's marriage contract "Nicholas LaChance." (or maybe instead that was his father?s signature, who died in 1799)
    In 1799 right after his father?s death, most of the Caliots and relatives moved to begin a new settlement called St. Michael's (renamed Fredericktown in 1814). In 1818 this area became part of Madison Co.

    In July, 1801, following a murder and various other violence, Nicolas II was appointed temporary commissaire de police at Mine a Breton by Commandant Valle.

    He settled with 3 brothers in St. Michael's Village. On Jun 12, 1814, the village was flooded out by the Saline and Castor Creeks. Afterward many of the village families moved to the north the establish "New Village?, which later became Fredericktown.
