Early Mackinac Marriage Records 1725-1749

The old register at Mackinac is still preserved in the parish church of the island. It consists of one large volume, with the records of marriages entered at one end, and those of baptisms at the other. The record of interments is meagre. This volume extends in time from 1741-1821, and we here publish the portion comprising the marriages. That for the baptisms and interments will be given in the succeeding volume of our Collections. We are indebted to the Hon. Edward Osgood Brown of Chicago for an admirable transcription of this interesting document, which we follow in the present publication. In March, 1889, Judge Brown read a paper before the Chicago Literary Club, entitled “The Parish Register of the Mission of Michilimackinac,” which was published in the same year. The extant register superseded an older one, now lost. At some time, perhaps about 1750, this list of marriages from 1725-41 was copied into the then new register. Unfortunately, the first few pages of the register are torn; these lacunae are here indicated by leaders (. . . . ).    In subsequent documents, where the paper has been torn, similar leaders are employed. Asterisks ( * * * ) are used only where the Editor has omitted portions from the document; see post, p. 473, note 3. The brackets [ ] enclose suggestions or explanatory matter inserted by the Editor. 2 August 1725 Pierre . . . . . . . . . . . . 6 August 1725 Jean Cauchois . . . . . . . . 7 January 1726 Gabriel . . . . . ....

Menominee Indians

Menominee Indians were located on and near the Menominee River, Wisconsin, and in Michigan on or about the present location of Mackinac. The Menominee belonged to the Algonquian linguistic family and to the same section as the Cree and Foxes.
