L'ARCHEVEQUE, Jean de (larsh-vake), French soldier, died near Arkansas river, 17 August, 1720. He was a member of La Salle's expedition of 1684, and enticed him into the ambuscade where he was murdered. In 1699 he was a soldier in Santa Fe. He became a successful trader, and is doubtless identical with a " Captain Archibeque" who was a member of the war councils of 1715 and 1720. In the latter he recommended a reconnoissaner to the Arkansas river, on which he was killed, with forty-three others, by Pawnee Indians. He left four children, and a family of Archibeques is still living in New Mexico. These facts, save his connection with La Salle's murder, were unknown till 1888, when they were discovered in making researches in behalf of the Hemenway southwestern archaeological expedition.
