Footnotes

  1. William Henry (1783-1864) was a son of Alexander Henry, the explorer. He entered the North West Company in 1801 as clerk; this signature was thus made during his first winter in the fur-trade. He continued in the West until 1821, commanding at one time (1816) a post in the Willamette Valley, Oregon. After retirement, he resided in Montreal, and later near Toronto. See Bain (ed.), Alexander Henry’s Travels, pp. xxviii-xxx, for a more extended notice with portrait.
  2. Michael Dousman was born in Pennsylvania, and appears to have come to Mackinac soon after American occupation. He became one of the most prominent and richest citizens of the island. At the outbreak of the War of 1812-15, he was captured by the British, being released on an errand to save the women and children of the fort. He was president of the village, 1824-25; and probate judge, 1833-40. His son Hercules was a well-known Prairie du Chien fur-trader.
  3. Jean Dilhet was a Sulpician priest, who came to the United States after the Revolution. In 1804 he was sent as assistant to Father Richard at Detroit, and had charge of the remote missions. This visit of 1804 was doubtless the only one he made to Mackinac. In 1807 he was recalled to Baltimore, and sent thence to Pennsylvania.
  4. Joseph Laframboise was killed in 1809 near Grand River, Mich., by an Indian to whom he refused to give liquor. His wife conducted the fur-trade for many succeeding years, and was a noted Mackinac resident. See Wisconsin Historical Collections, xiv, pp. 38-43.
  5. John Carroll (1735-1815) was a native of Maryland and educated in France (1753-59), in which latter year he was ordained. Returning to Maryland in 1774 he was a patriot during the Revolution, being sent (1776) by Congress as commissioner to Canada. In 1790 he was ordained first Roman Catholic bishop of the United States, being chosen archbishop in 1808.
