Footnotes

  1. Their marriage was solemnized Aug. 6, 1758. Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 485. 

  2. This name was written twice in the original, and both times crossed out. 

  3. Their marriage entry is given in Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 485. 

  4. Alexander Henry, for whom see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 277, note 88. He appears to be the first Englishman mentioned in the register. 

  5. It is to be noted that this is the first recorded baptism after the Pontiac conspiracy at Mackinac, which broke out June 2, 1763. The English troops, with the traders and escorting Indians, arrived from Green Bay at L’Arbre Croche, July 1. The French traders had doubtless hastened on to Mackinac, where no Frenchmen were molested, and this child, born in Wisconsin, was there baptized. La Fortune (Lafortain) was again trading in Wisconsin the following year; see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 267. 

  6. This is an interesting side-light on conditions at Mackinac, and would lead to the belief that the Langlades had removed to Green Bay in the spring of this year, 1764. Capt. George Ethrington, when obliged to abandon his post at Mackinac in June, 1763, had placed it in charge of Lieut. Charles Langlade; see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, pp. 253, 258. The English garrison did not return until September, 1764; Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, pp. 270, 271. If the Langlades removed to Green Bay in the spring of 1764, Parent must have held command until the arrival of Capt. William Howard. 

  7. Michel Cadotte became an important Wisconsin trader. With his elder brother, Jean Baptiste, he was early upon the Grand Portage of Lake Superior. By 1784 he was wintering with the Indians at the head of Chippewa River, and had posts on the St. Croix tributaries and upper Mississippi, advancing with the Chippewa, his mother’s tribe, in their progress into former Sioux territory. About 1792 he located at La Pointe village, Madelaine Island, whence he frequently went to winter at Lac du Flambeau and Lac Court Oreille, where he had posts. Cadotte was agent for the North West, and later for the American Fur Company. The Chippewa over whom he had great influence, called him Kichemeshane (Great Michel). In 1818 two New England traders named Warren arrived at La Pointe, and in 1821 they married two of Cadotte’s daughters. Two years later he sold his trading post to his sons-in-law, and retired from active life, dying at La Pointe village in 1836. He married the daughter of White Crane, hereditary chief of the tribe at this place. His wife survived him for some years. 

  8. Laurent Fily was well-known to early Wisconsin settlers. His grandfather, Michel Fily de Kerrigou, was a sergeant in the troops, coming to Canada from Brittany. His father Constant was born (1710) in Montreal. Laurent Fily first traded with the Sauk and Foxes on the Mississippi and in Iowa. Later he married into the De Kauray family, among the Winnebago, and was for some time clerk for Jean l’Ecuyer at the Fox-Wisconsin Portage. He was trading at Milwaukee in 1804-05. Having entered the employ of Augustin Grignon, he finally died in 1846 at the latter’s home at Grand Kaukaulin (the present Kaukauna). 

  9. Their marriage is recorded in Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 486. 

  10. This marriage is found Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 486. 

  11. This is the last entry in the register, by Father Du Jaunay, who went back to Quebec, where he spent the remainder of his life. 

  12. See sketch of Gibault in Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 292, note 14. Some newly-discovered material on Gibault’s connection with George Rogers Clark is published in American Historical Review, xiv, pp. 544-557. 

  13. Their marriage ceremony was performed the same day; see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, pp. 487, 488.
