The decree is at:

From a brief biography on his son Eugene, the family was supposedly exiled from France. 

According to census information his son Eugene was born in 1861 (Boston) and his daughter was born in 1866 (Manhattan).  He appears to have taught fencing in Boston.  At some point, he leaves Clara his wife and goes to Honduras where he has another child and is part of the military there.

Somewhere in the line, my FIL was sired and adopted.

I have been able to read the transcription of the decree in 1882.

Once again , knowing that Eugene Salignac , born in 1827, Paris  ,his father being french and mother 's nationality unknown to us , was born french according to this :

But he may have asked for american nationality when living there , and thus had to find a way to enjoy civil rights in france if he wanted to settle in France after 1882.

I still think that Phillipe Lucain Salignac was french  ( no evidence of a foreign origin or noble ascendance by the way).

  You could try to find Phillipe Lucain Salignac's file for the Legion d'honneur :


Go there :

https://www.legiondhonneur.fr/fr/page/recherche-de-decore/102

Then write to Madame Minjollet or send an email (musee@legiondhonneur.fr) , explaning that you can't find him in the  Base Leonore  and you are family.

"
    Si cette personne a été décorée au XIXe siècle et que vous ne la trouvez pas sur la base Léonore, vous pouvez faire une demande au musée de la Légion d’honneur à Mme Minjollet, soit par mail (musee@legiondhonneur.fr), soit par courrier :


Madame Minjollet
Musée de la Légion d’honneur et des ordres de chevalerie

2, rue de la Légion d’honneur

75007 Paris 

FRANCE"
