I recently came across a page listing, among other things, all of Le Bas's siblings - all 15 of them - put together by another (indirect) descendant of his. I don't doubt that someone reading this will find some use or other for this information. I should point out however, that the page's author unfortunately doesn't cite his sources, so to really be sure of the information he presents one would have to re-do all his genealogical research.

He's also not exactly correct about Maurice Duplay. I can name at least three things he did after being acquitted after his first arrest: 1) getting arrested again in connection with the Conspiracy of Equals (and once more acquitted), 2) buying the house in the rue Saint-Honoré that he had been renting pre-Thermidor, 3) dying in 1820. But I suppose you can't blame the site's author for not getting all those details in, descending from one of Le Bas's sisters.

Less excusably, he also seems to take André Dumont's (post-Thermidorian) testimony a bit too seriously.

Anyway, though, the names and dates seem to check out...
