After the downfall of Robespierre and his fellows, it was declared that the prince died in prison in Eleazar Williams. 1795, while the royalists believed he had been secretly hidden away in the United States. Curious facts and circumstances pointed to Rev. Eleazar Williams, a reputed half-breed Indian, of the Caughnawaga tribe, near Montreal, as the surviving prince, who, for almost sixty years, had been hidden from the world in that disguise. He was a reputed son of Thomas Williams, son of Eunice, the captive daughter of Rev. John Williams, of Deerfield, Mass.

Mr. Hanson published a series of papers under the title Have we a Bourbon among us? and afterwards published them in book form and entitled the volume The lost Prince. Mr. Hanson fortified the claim to identity by most remarkable facts and coincidences. In 1854 the Prince de Joinville, heir to the throne of Louis Philippe, visited Mr. Williams at Green Bay, Wis. The accounts of the interview, as given by the clergyman and the deeply interested prince, differed widely. The world was incredulous; the words of a prince outweighed those of a poor Episcopal clergyman, and the public judgment was against the latter. Mr. Williams died in Hogansburg, N. Y., Aug. 28, 1858, aged about seventy-two years. He translated the Book of common prayer into the Mohawk language. He also prepared an Iroquois spelling-book, and a life of Thomas Williams, his reputed father.
