Cleric.

Born in France, Aulneau entered the Jesuit order in 1720. He came to Canada in 1734 and travelled west with la Vérendrye in 1735. Aulneau was murdered with a party of twenty French by Sioux Indians in 1736 at Fort St. Charles. He is buried in the St. Boniface Cathedral Cemetery and is commemorated by a monument in the cemetery.
