Footnotes

  1. Quiquanamoso (usually spelled Kikkanamazoo) is the Indian word for the river now corrupted into the form Kalamazoo. The word is said to signify “bubbling or boiling water.” Such entries as this and similar ones in the register show how French traders scattered along the shores of the lakes and rivers of the upper country, returned to Mackinac in the summer to traffic for their skins, and brought with them their families for marriage, baptism, etc. 

  2. Charles Denis Duplessis, Sieur de Morampont, was born in 1704 and married in 1742. After his term of service at Kamanistigoya, he was appointed (1749) prevost of the court at Quebec, which office he held until the British conquest. He would appear to have then retired to France, where in 1774 his wife applied for a pension. 

  3. Charles Joseph des Noyelles, for whom see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xvii, p. 462. He appears to have retired to France after 1760. 

  4. She was married in 1763; see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 486. 

  5. Now Des Plaines River, in Illinois. The word is derived from a French term for the soft swamp maple tree. 

  6. On this officer consult Wisconsin Historical Collections, xvii, p. 448.

  10. For this person see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 8, note 14. 

  11. For the marriage of these two persons see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 474, In the names and ages of the children the two entries do not agree. 

  12. Possibly the person for whom Baraboo River in Sauk County, Wisconsin, was named. 

  13. Note on original MS.: “This entry is badly put down in the register because I was interrupted while writing.” 

  14. She was the eldest daughter of Nicolas Antoine Coulon, Sieur de Villiers, killed at Green Bay in 1733. Her first husband was François Duplessis-Fabert, the cadet killed with her father (see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xvii, p. 189). In 1837 she married Claude Marin, Sieur de la Perrière, brother of Capt. Paul Marin, commandant in Wisconsin. Her third husband was Joseph Damours, whom she married in 1754 at Quebec. 

  15. Coulange signed here by mistake, instead of after the second succeeding entry. This having been noticed, he signed again In the proper place. 

  16. For her marriage see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 475. 

  17. This officer’s career is noted in Wisconsin Historical Collections, xvii, pp. 165, 166. 

  18. A note on this officer is given in Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, pp. 35, 36.

During the French and Indian War he served on the Ohio in 1756, and the following year accompanied Rigaud’s detachment to the reinforcement of Crown Point. He was present at the siege of Montreal in 1760, and went to France with the returning troops. In 1763 he received a passport to return to Canada, where he appears to have died before 1767.
