Hard to read, not sure of name Corunn, but is she a sister to your Antoine?If so, maybe Antoine's father remarried and she is a half sister?There are Gallion(sic) families all around this household.
1900 census Natchitoches Parish, LA.Gilman(sic) and Antoinette are listed, with their son Earnest.Lots of Gallion families and a Malancon on the same page and they have ayoung son named Henry, age 1 yr.
Have you checked land records for Natchitoches Parish?If your Henry owned any land, there would be a record of that final sale.Check guardianship records, if there was an estate the court would appoint someone to report any sale of that estate.
I recommend you check out the Natchitoches GenWeb site, with just a quick look I see several people working on your surnames -- Derbanne, Gallien and one on Melancon.You might want to get in touch with them.Click and look at what else is on that site, too.Click on Natchitoches Archives, then type in your surnames, be sure to use the various spellings, too.Gallien 33 matches; Galloen 12; Derbonne 14; Derbanne 14; Melancon 11; Malancon 2.You probably know some other variations, too.They spelled things phonetcially in the old days, and you add that soft French/Louisiana accent and it changes the "sound".
