  2. But little is known of this Jesuit, beyond what is stated here. He seems to have been at Mackinac in 1756, being reputed to have come from France, arriving in Canada in 1746. Possibly he was educated in France, and came back to Quebec for his novitiate. He was in Quebec in 1780. 

  3. Marie Louis le Franc was born in 1716, entered the Jesuit order in 1742, and arrived in Canada six years later. He was known to have been in Quebec in 1749, and probably came to Mackinac to succeed Father la Morinie, when the latter went to St. Josephs. Father le Franc’s ministrations at Mackinac continued until 1761; he seems then to have retired to Quebec, where he died in 1776.
