St. Paul Pioneer Press, 20 November 2001

    Willett, Alice F., age 90, of St. Paul, died peacefully Sunday morning, Nov. 18, 2001 at Regions Hospital in St.
Paul.
    Born in Duane, MN on July 7, 1911, Alice Frances Sheppard was the first of eight children born to Allan
Sheppard and Elizabeth (nee Goodwin) Sheppard. She moved with her family to Cass Lake, MN and then to St. Paul
in the 1920's. Alice confirmed her faith at Emanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church in 1926 and graduated from the
church school the following year.
    On Thanksgiving Day, 1930, Alice married James A. Dennis, and the couple had seven children, two of whom
died in infancy. After divorce, Alice supported her family with employment at Northwest Plastics and, after the
factory closed, as a server at the Criterion Restaurant. She joked with a regular customer that she would work at the
restaurant until the place burned down, and she did until it did.
    Alice married Charles Willett in 1959. In her retirement, Alice remained active in the lives of her many
descendants; her social calendar was full with baptisms, birthday parties, weddings, and other celebrations. Her little
"greats" and "great-greats" as she called them adored her. Alice's independent nature allowed her to live at home
until this past summer. Her strength and determination made it possible for her to attend her 90th birthday
celebration and extended family reunion this past July 7. All who knew her will remember her love of family and
especially children. She will be greatly missed.
    Preceded in death by her sons John and Jack, brother Robert, and sisters Irene, Grace, Mervyn, May, and Fern,
she is survived by her son, James Dennis (Patricia), daughters Jeanine Primoli (Daniel), Jacqueline Hines (James),
Janice Jorgensen (Russell Johnson), and Judith Williamson (Roland Sjodin), and brother Lionel Sheppard. She is
also survived by 25 grandchildren, 50 great grandchildren, and 11 great great grandchildren.
    The funeral is at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20 at Mueller Parkway Chapel, 835 Johnson Parkway, with visitation
from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. prior to the service at the chapel. Interment will be made at Elmhurst Cemetery.

Marriage Notes for Alice Sheppard and James Dennis:

Depression Years - Information from Alice Sheppard Dennis Willett (Grammy)

Grammy met Jim, Sr. at a Halloween party in 1930, and less than a month later, on Thanksgiving day, they were
married in the chapel at Fort Snelling. Jim, Sr. had invited Grammy to Thanksgiving dinner at Fort Snelling. (He
was a serviceman there.) And while they were there, Jim, Sr. asked Grammy if she wanted to get married there and
then. She said, "All right - sure." Not long after they were married (perhaps by January), Jim, Sr. left the service.

Grammy and Jim, Sr.'s first two children, Jim, Jr. and Jeanine (Bowie), were born in St. Paul.
When Bowie was one month old, they moved to Higginsville because they heard Jim could get work in the coal
mines. After a few months, the mines shut down, and Jim, Sr. was looking for work again. In Higginsville, they first
lived in an abandoned farm house. They then moved to town to a two-room basement apartment. It was in that
apartment that Bowie's bed was a dresser drawer. Grammy thinks they may have been in Higginsville for about a
year and moved about six times during that time because they couldn't pay the rent or for one reason or another.

At some point, they moved to a two-room house; it had a kitchen and a bigger room. Jim, Sr.'s dad, William, came
to live with them there. He had worked the coal mines all his life and moved around quite a bit for work. William
slept on a cot in the kitchen. They had an old cook stove, and each morning at 3 a.m., Jim, Sr. made a fire, and
Grammy got up and made baking powder biscuits and salt pork for lunches and made oatmeal or something similar
for breakfast. Jim, Sr. and William had to be to work at 7 a.m., and they had to walk four miles there and back each
day.

At some point, they moved in with one of Jim, Sr.'s cousins. He had a wife and two kids. While they were there, Jim
Sr. and his father planted a garden, and they lived off that food for the most part. Grammy said Jim, Jr.'s grandfather,
William, would take little Jimmy out to the potato patch to pull off potato bugs. Once, little Jimmy thought he was
helping and pulled up a whole row of onions. He said, "Here mommy, I brought you some onions." Jim, Sr. was so
mad he hit him on the butt, and then Grammy was mad at Jim, Sr. for hitting Jimmy; he thought he was helping.
Grammy said she didn't talk to Jim, Sr. for about a week.

From Higginsville, they moved to Kansas City. Jim, Sr. went ahead without Grammy. They had been living in an
apartment at the time, and Grammy was pregnant with their third child, Jacqueline (Toots). One night, Jim, Sr. came
back with a small truck, and they sneaked out of the apartment after midnight. They owed $7. Grammy said she felt
guilty about that but didn't know what else they could do. They moved in with Ray Dennis (another one of Jim, Sr.'s
cousins) in Kansas City. Jim, Sr. worked at the Everything Store and made $6 a week.

From Ray's they moved out to a farm and then moved back to town to a two-room house. Jim, Sr.'s mother, Nannie,
came to live with them there. Grammy said Nannie was all right, but she (Nannie) didn't like Grammy. When asked
why she thought Nannie didn't like her, Grammy first said that she didn't like to talk about that. Then she said that
said she (Grammy) used to swear a lot, and Nannie was a very religious person.
Toots was born in Kansas City, and Jim, Sr. worked at the Everything Store until they moved back to St. Paul.
Grammy thinks they were in Kansas City about two and a half years. Grammy said she didn't really want to move
back to St. Paul; there was nothing in St. Paul for them. They came back broke and had to move in with her parents
who were already supporting her sisters. When they returned, they lived at 110 Edward Street with her parents.

Notes for Allan Lionel Sheppard:

Allan Sheppard -> Alice Sheppard -> James Dennis Jr. -> Sandra Dennis

Allan Sheppard's Social Security application shows a birth date of 14 May 1891. However, the 1893 Santee Agency
Census shows his age is 4 (which would put his birth in 1888 or 1889 depending on the date of the census), and the
1909 Sisseton and Wahpeton Annuity Pay Roll shows his age is 19 (which would put his birth in 1889 or 1890
depending on the date of the pay roll). So, his birth year is not completely clear.

and 48 in April 1934. With a September birthday, her ages on those dates indicate her birth year is 1885. This year
does not match the birth year on her death certificate (1890). The 1900 US Census of White Earth Indian
Reservation shows Lizzie Goodwin is 12 years old and was born in October of 1887. Lizzie's birth year, then, is
unclear.

Marriage Notes for Allan Sheppard and Elizabeth Goodwin:

Allan Sheppard and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Goodwin met each other while attending the Pipestone Indian Training
School, in Pipestone, Minnesota. Neither the Pipestone Museum nor the National Archives can find student records
for Allan and Lizzie (many of the early records have been lost), but photographs (shown here and on the following
pages) document that Allan was a member of the Pipestone Indian Band and played on the Pipestone baseball team.
Lizzie played on the 1908 basketball team with her best friend, Louise, and sister, Maudie. Alice (nee Sheppard)
Willett reports that Lizzie had an excellent singing voice and was also active with the community theatre, singing in
several performances at the opera house in Pipestone.

Allan does appear on an undated list of out-going students which is attached to a letter documenting Indian
employment (the letter is dated 30 August 1910), and Lizzie appears in a photograph of the graduating class of
1907-08. After graduating, both Allan and Lizzie were employed by the school.
Allan is in the second row, second from the left in a photograph of the Pipestone Indian Band. (This writer does not
know where the original photograph is located.)

A photo postcard postmarked 5 June 1909 in Pipestone, Minnesota shows the Pipestone baseball team. Allan is in
the bottom left of the photo. The postcard original is in the possession of Alice (nee Sheppard) Willett.

On a photo postcard from Lizzie to her mother, Lizzie writes, "Dear Ma, I received your measures alright and I'll
send you patterns as soon as possible. Aren't these cute pictures! I'd send you all one but I had only six but I'll get
some more. Liz" In the photo, Lizzie is sitting in the back row on the right. The postcard original is in the possession
of Laura (nee Sheppard) Koepp.

In a photograph of her basketball team, Lizzie is the first person from the left in the third (back) row. Next to her in
the third row is Lizzie's friend, Louise. Lizzie's sister, Maudie, is the first person from the left in the first (front) row.
The photograph is found at the Pipestone Museum in Pipestone, Minnesota.

A photograph shows from left to right, Louise, Lizzie, and Maudie. The photograph original is in the possession of
Alice (nee Sheppard) Willett who identified the young women

In a photograph of the 1907-08 graduating class, Lizzie is the first person from the right in the first (front) row.
Lizzie's friend, Louise, is the first person from the left in the second row. The photograph is found at the Pipestone
Museum in Pipestone, Minnesota.

According to stories passed down to their daughter, Alice (nee Sheppard) Willett, Allan and Lizzie - while courting -
often met at the Three Maidens near Pipestone, a popular spot with many of the young couples. The Three Maidens
are shown on a postcard postmarked 6 May 1944 which Lizzie sent to her grandson, Jimmy Dennis (386 So. Robert
St., St. Paul, Minn). On the postcard, Lizzie writes, "We used to get on top of these 3 Maidens and sun ourselves. I
?wish? you kids were all here to see all these natural things. Love, Ma"

Allan and Lizzie married on 8 December 1910 at Pipestone, Minnesota. The marriage announcement was published
in the Pipestone County Star on 9 December 1910:

Matrimonial - A happy and interesting wedding took place at the Pipestone Indian Training School late yesterday
afternoon, when Miss Lizzie Goodwin became the wife of Mr. All[a]n Sheppard, both the bride and groom being
employe[e]s of the institution and former students there. The marriage ceremony took place in the school chapel, in
the presence of officials, employe[e]s and pupils of the school, besides a few other guests, and the officiating
clergyman was Rev. W. F. Jones of the Presbyterian Church of this city. The marriage occurred at about 5:30
o'clock, and during the evening a wedding supper was served. Mr. Sheppard has been employed at the school since
last July as assistant farmer and his bride has served in the capacity of laundress for two years. They are popular
young folks, very highly esteemed by all their associates, and everyone will wish them a long and happy married
life.

A photograph shows the handsome couple, Lizzie Goodwin and Allan Sheppard, on their wedding day. The original
is in the possession of Eunice (nee Clevenger) Morelli.

Lizzie and Allan worked in a variety of jobs at the Pipestone Indian School. Alice (nee Sheppard) Willett reports
that Lizzie worked as a matron and Allan did a variety of odd jobs. When it was time for Lizzie to give birth to their
first child, Lizzie left Pipestone and returned to her home in Duane, Minnesota so that her mother, Malinda, could
deliver the baby. Allan remained in Pipestone to work. On a post card postmarked 13 June 1911 in Pipestone,
Minnesota and addressed to Mrs. Allan Sheppard, Duane, Minnesota, Allan writes, "Dearest Liz: I am writing these
cards in a hurry because I have to change right away. Haint this a pretty card. I think it is. Your ?Hubey? Allan."

On another postcard which has a picture of a stork carrying a baby and blanks to write an announcement, Allan
writes, "Dearest Liz - Gee haint this a cute card. I am going to leave the blanks for you to fill out. So bye - bye
Sweetheart."

The card must have later been completed with:
Arrived July 7, 1911
Name Alice Shep.
Weight 8 Lbs

Lizzie returned to her employment at Pipestone Indian School after the birth of her first child. A letter dated 7
August 1911 to W. S. Campbell, the superintendent at the Pipestone Indian School, indicates Lizzie planned to
return to Pipestone that month:

Dear Mr. Campbell,

    I am gaining my health right along and I think I will be in Pipestone this month. I would like to bring Fanny and
Willis along with me, and I have a cousin in White Earth I am going to try to bring along. A mean thing was done to
me concerning this girl. Auntie let her go and her oldest daughters interfered and wouldn't let her go. Poor child
cried, she wants to go real bad. I wish you would write to Auntie and tell her you would like to have her come. I
wrote to her myself and probably you won't have to. I'll let you know where to send their tickets if Eugenie is
permitted to go. Auntie is perfectly willing to let her go on part, and I want to take her so bad. I can't do anything
with these other girls around here. I almost got gray headed trying to coax them. ?In the end? I got left. Well I'll
bring you Fanny anyway. I hate to monkey with the agent about the pupils. We would never get there if we waited
on him. Willis is in the fifth grade and is quite a boy. Well Mr. Campbell, I guess this is all.

With best wishes
I am truly

Lizzie Sheppard

A copy of the above letter was obtained from the National Archives.

In a photograph, Allan Sheppard holds his daughter, Alice. The photo may have been taken while Allan was still
employed at the Pipestone Indian School; on the wall of the room is a Garretson banner, and Garretson is a town
near Pipestone. The photograph original is in the possession of Alice (nee Sheppard) Willett who identified father
and daughter.

Alice (nee Sheppard) Willett reports that Lizzie returned home to her mother in Duane for the birth of their second
child, Irene (Louise on some White Earth Indian Reservation rolls*), and again returned to employment at
Pipestone. The birth of their third child, Grace, brought them back to Duane again where this time they remained.
Allan moved the family from his mother-in-law's home to a log cabin in the woods at the outskirts of Duane. The
cabin, of course, had no electricity or running water. Kerosene lamps, wood stoves, and out houses were used.

Allan supported his family working at logging camps which often took him away from his family. On a post card
postmarked 1913 and addressed to Miss Alice Sheppard, Duane, Minnesota, Allan writes, "Hello little Alice. Your
Papa."

The picture on the front of the card is of two little ducks with the caption, "When can I see you?"

Alice (nee Sheppard) Willett recounts that during wintertime, her father walked twelve miles to work at a lumber
camp. He stayed at the camp during the work week; the men at the camps stayed in rough, houseboat shelters. On
Saturday nights, after he got off work, Allan walked home, and on Sundays, he chopped wood for the week and
hunted ducks or rabbits so the family would have meat. Sometimes he would come home with a couple of rabbits
that he had shot on his walk home from the lumber camp.

From the log cabin, the family moved to a white frame house which had a second floor. Again, of course, kerosene
lamps, wood stoves, and out houses were used. In this house, Allan and Lizzie's fourth child, Mervyn was born.
Lizzie's mother again delivered the baby and stayed with the family for a while after Mervyn's birth.

The family made two more moves in Duane - to a big white house and then to a tar paper shack - before moving to
Cass Lake, Minnesota. They moved the small amount of furniture they had and the rest of their belongings in a big
wagon. Allan must have rented a horse because they used one and didn't own one.

When they first arrived in Cass Lake, Allan didn't have any money. Alice recounts going with her father to a grocer
- a Mr. Curtis - when they first arrived. Allan told Mr. Curtis he had been on the road for two days and had run out
of money. He said he had four kids to feed and explained he didn't have a job yet but knew he could get one right
away. Allan told Mr. Curtis he would pay him as soon as he landed a job. Alice relates that her father had an
appealing way of looking - twisting his head just slightly with a sort of half grin - that made people trust him. Alice
said Mr. Curtis must have been a good-hearted man because he gave them the groceries they needed to get by -
flour, coffee, sugar, lard, and perhaps some salt pork.

The family first lived in an abandoned store they named "the leaky house" - the only thing Allan could rent when
they first arrived in Cass Lake. But Allan did land a job right away - at the roundhouse. Not long after, the family
moved to a shack owned by Ed Duffey, a man they knew from the Duane area.

That winter, temperatures dipped to 40 degrees below zero, but the Sheppard girls played outside anyway, mostly
wading around in the deep snow. In the spring, the family moved to a green-colored house, and in the fall Alice
started kindergarten. She said she was almost seven years old when she attended kindergarten.

During the summer vacation of that year, the family moved to a shack owned by Rob Roy, and stayed there during
the winter. One day in the spring, the girls were walking around on the ice of a melting pond, and Grace went out
too far and broke through the ice. Alice pulled her out.

It was also at Rob Roy's shack where May Ione, Peace Baby, was born. It was the first of Lizzie's births attended by
a doctor - who came out to the house. After May's birth, the family moved again - this time to a big gray house. That
year (1918), the flu was wide-spread, and everyone in the Sheppard household - except Allan - came down with it.
Sadly, May died from the flu on the 31st of December at age seven months.

Lizzie was completely devastated by May's death; Alice relates, "She just gave up, you might say." She always had
food ready for the family - a pot of stew or soup on the stove - but otherwise, she stayed in bed. Lizzie continued
this way for months.

It was a tough year. The spring following May's death, the family's dog, a little red terrier named Teddy, also died.
They buried him by the railroad fence with flowers and a big cross.

Lizzie continued to recover from May's death, but for the Sheppard girls, the year was not all unhappiness. Alice
recounts that Allan took the girls with him to his job at the roundhouse. They sat in one engine and watched from
there as their father cleaned out the boiler on another. He used hoses with hot water to clean - what seemed to her -
the engines' enormous boilers. When Allan was finished, he'd give the girls a ride on an engine and sometimes
brought them on the turntable. Alice (while chuckling) recalls her father letting them ring the bell and blow the
whistle. In addition to roundhouse work, Allan worked as a switchman and a brakeman. Occasionally, he went out
on runs which would take him away from the family overnight.

From the gray house, the family moved to a little house and then to a space that had been a restaurant. A
gramophone was left there; Alice remembers playing with it. They stayed in the restaurant space only a short time -
perhaps a couple of weeks - before moving to St. Paul.

It seems the desire to move to St. Paul was Lizzie's. She wanted to move to the cities and get away from Cass Lake.
So, Allan quit his job at the roundhouse and moved the family. Allan was eligible for free transportation on the
railroad, and the family was able to take the train down.

In St. Paul, the family first stayed with Allan's aunt and uncle, Celia and Polite (Hypolite) Auge, on Grove Street.
Allan went out right away to find work. Alice relates, "...that was so typical of him...first thing he went out looking
for work and wouldn't you know it he got a job down in South St. Paul and worked there all his life." Alice said that
Allan landed his job at Swift's his first day in St. Paul. He first worked in the yard, driving the cattle to be
slaughtered and was quickly promoted to the office where he did record keeping. (Later, Allan worked as a renderer
and likely had other positions during his long career at Swift's.) Allan got the family a place of their own (also on
Grove Street), and Alice attended the public school, Scheffer School.

In St. Paul, the Sheppards continued their custom of moving frequently. From Grove Street, they moved to Mount
Aire and then to Canada Street. The Canada Street move lasted about a week; Lizzie wouldn't stay there. Alice
recounts, "I remember her crying." So the family moved again, first to Belleview and then to Otto Avenue to a two
room house, Alice remembers. The 1920 census shows the family at 796 Butternut Street.

Fourteenth Census of the United States (1920), St. Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota (15 January 1920), household of Allan
Sheppard, 796 Butternut Street:

Sheppard, Allan, Age 31
Elizabeth, Age 26
Alice, Age 8
Irene, Age 7
Grace, Age 5
Mervyn, Age 3

It was at the Otto Avenue home where Allan and Lizzie's sixth child, Robert, was born. For this birth, Allan took
Lizzie to the hospital on a street car and left her there. Lizzie didn't like the hospital, and while in labor, took the
street car home by herself. Allan had to go out and get a midwife.

From Otto Avenue, the family moved to Como and then to the west side of St. Paul where the moving continued. On
the west side, they lived on Indiana in an area commonly called Jew Town (the area east of Robert Street populated
by many Syrians, Mexicans, and Jews). They lived one winter on Indiana and then moved west of Robert Street to a
fourplex on Fairfield.

In the fall of 1920**, the four older Sheppard girls were enrolled at Emanuel Lutheran School on the west side of St.
Paul. Prior to Emanuel, they had attended Scheffer, St. Francis Catholic, Como, Lafayette, and Crowley. Lizzie had
decided she didn't want them attending public school. She brought them to Emanuel, and they took them in. Alice
started in the fourth grade, Irene in the third, Grace in the second, and Mervyn in the first. The Sheppard sisters had
excellent singing voices, and each year they sang in the spring program.

Allan and Lizzie's seventh child, Fern, was born at their home on Fairfield. This birth was attended by Aunt Celia
who lived upstairs in the fourplex. (Another tidbit of info - Celia made moonshine at her place on Fairfield during
the prohibition.)

Lizzie loved to dress her girls alike. Alice recounts that in the spring, Lizzie received Indian money of $700, and she
used some of it to have outfits made for the girls. She hired a woman who had a dress shop on Fairfield to make
three sets of dresses with full bloomers to match. Lizzie ordered fabric to make blue outfits trimmed with white
rickrack, yellow outfits trimmed with black rickrack, and black sateen outfits trimmed with red rickrack. The blue
and yellow were for dress up and the black sateen were for play. The blue outfits had matching capes.

A photograph does not show the memorable outfits, but it does show an example of Lizzie dressing the girls alike.
Sitting on the fence are (left to right): Mervyn, Grace, Irene, and Alice. The original photograph is in the possession
of Alice (nee Sheppard) Willett) who identified the girls. Alice remembers Lizzie being irritated when she couldn't
find a muff which fit Mervyn.

From Fairfield, the family moved to a houseboat owned by Allan's nephew, Louis LeClair. The houseboat was
located on Water Street, right across from Harriet Island, and was situated on the bank, not in the water.

From Water Street, they moved to a big house on Edward Street - 113 Edward Street. While they were living there,
Fern came down with pneumonia, and Lizzie had a difficult time handling the crisis. She cried and fainted many
times. The doctor told Allan he would have to steam Fern. Allan put Fern in a big straw buggy and put their wash
boiler at the foot of the buggy. He draped a sheet over the whole works. He kept fires going in two stoves - the cook
stove to boil water and the heater. He placed the buggy near the heater, and tended to Fern and the stoves for nearly
a week. Alice can remember him drinking coffee and chewing snuff the entire time. Lizzie - although too distraught
to care for Fern - nursed her several times. Allan tried to keep them under the sheet so that Fern wouldn't be exposed
to the cold air. Fern recovered and the doctor complimented Allan on what a good job he had done; he had saved
Fern's life.

From Edward Street the family moved back to Water Street to another houseboat where Allan and Lizzie's eighth
child, Lionel, was born. From there, there may have been several more moves on the west side, and Allan and Lizzie
eventually ended up back on Edward Street.

A photograph shows a very young Lionel and a pet cat. The original is in the possession of Laura (nee Sheppard)
Koepp who identified her father. Lionel Sheppard reports that the photo was taken at 113 Edward Street.

A photograph, also taken at the Edward Street home, shows Allan The original is in the possession of Eunice (nee
Clevenger) Morelli who identified her grandfather. It is possible the photos of Lionel and Allan were taken on the
same day in the mid 1920's.

The late 1920's and early 1930's saw the older Sheppard girls marry. Alice married Jim Dennis, Irene married Ray
Hardman, Grace married Joe Gunderson, and Mervyn married Henry Clevenger.
Allan continued working at Swift's, and through the depression years, when so many men were out of work, many in
the family continued to rely on him for financial support.

The moving also continued. Allan's application for a Social Security account number, dated 28 November 1936,
shows he is living on Edward Street - this time at 110 Edward Street.

When the youngest Sheppard children reached school age, they too were enrolled at Emanuel Lutheran School, but
when Robert was in the sixth grade, he decided to leave Emanuel. He attended school at Roosevelt and then finished
at Humboldt where he played football and was on the tumbling team. Fern and Lionel also attended Humboldt, and
Lionel was on the tumbling team as well.

By 1941, the war started, and the three youngest Sheppards were in the service. Allan and Lizzie moved to "the
flats" - an apartment building on the west side named St. Pierre Terrace. It was a popular spot - as much of the rest
of the family moved there as well. The Clevengers moved into a second floor apartment. Allan and Lizzie and the
Hardmans lived in third floor apartments. And The Dennis' moved into a basement apartment and then to a second
floor apartment next to the Clevengers. Alice remembers attending the birth of Mervyn's daughter, Arlene, in their
apartment at the flats.

St. Pierre Terrace was an eighteen-family apartment building which in its day must have been really something. Gas
jets were wired throughout the building and every apartment had a fire place. The building was located four blocks
north of Robert and Concord (heading toward downtown). The building had a huge front yard out to Robert Street
with morning glories and other flowers and fences. When the fences came down, the yard became the playground
for the neighborhood. Jackie (nee Dennis) Hines remembers all the kids playing together - the little ones and the big
ones - playing Run Sheep Run, Red Light Green Light, Pump Pump Pull-Away, and Kick the Can. They often
played until after dark.

About this same time, after her children had grown, Lizzie loved entertaining. Allan and Lizzie moved to an
apartment on Tenth Street where Lizzie had two huge rooms she could use for entertaining. She was active in the
First Daughters of America and had many fund-raising functions for Indians - box lunch socials, corn festivals, and
entertaining at churches. Lizzie had her grandchildren help her. She wrote scripts for the grandchildren to act, and
she had them sing in harmony. She was known as Yellow Bird, and the grandchildren were her little yellow birds.
Lizzie seemed to dote on the grandchildren and many of them had a great deal of contact with her.

A photograph shows Lizzie (far right) at a First Daughters of America or similar function.

A photograph shows Lizzie's traditional, leather dress. The original is in the possession of this writer. It's possible
this photo and the photo on the previous page were taken on the same day in the 1940's.
Lizzie was outgoing, flamboyant, a bit of a character. She loved to play pranks - surprising folks with fart cushions
and other practical jokes. She was also very neat - not necessarily clean - but neat. Everything had its place, and the
grandchildren understood they would be reprimanded if an item was not returned to its correct place. She and Allan
seemed to have a good relationship - they often went to dances at the dance halls on the west side. And Lizzie was
very loving to the grandchildren She often took them out on the street car or gave them money to go to the movies.
This Lizzie the grandchildren knew, however, changed when Robert was killed.

Allan and Lizzie's son Robert served in the war, but he had just returned from a furlough and was waiting to be
shipped out again when he was killed in a jeep accident in Youngstown, Ohio. This death changed Lizzie - as she
did not seem to recover from the loss of a second child. Lizzie became extremely withdrawn, didn't leave her
apartment, and didn't entertain as often. Eunice (nee Clevenger) Morelli remembers that when she did entertain,
there were certain songs she wouldn't allow because they reminded her of Robert, and she didn't want flowers
because Robert used to bring them to her. Eventually, Lizzie stopped entertaining all together.

Allan and Lizzie's relationship deteriorated during this time. Lizzie had always disliked cigarette smoke, but it
seemed to become a larger issue when they lived on Tenth Street. Lizzie hung notes on the apartment door
indicating that if you smoke, you should not bring your coat inside. Allan smoked, and Lizzie had him rent a
separate room for himself. Lizzie had her apartment on the first floor, and Allan had a small room with a cot and his
clothes on the third floor. When Allan came home from work, he would hang his coat outside Lizzie's apartment,
pick up the mail, perhaps have something to eat, and go to his room upstairs.

Not long after this, Allan had a girlfriend. Jackie (nee Dennis) Hines remembers she was still fairly young when - at
Larry's Bar - her grandfather explained to her that he was going with another woman and he was going to marry her.

Allan and Lizzie separated for a long period and divorced in the 1950's. Afterward, Allan had little contact with the
family, but it is not clear whether or not this was by his choice. Allan married his girlfriend, Gertrude Bovee, and he
and his wife lived in St. Paul for several years before they moved to Wyoming, Minnesota (her hometown). Allan
died in Wyoming in 1967. Many remember Allan as an easy-going, fun-loving, hard-working man who smiled
easily and was very loud when he laughed and talked. He is also remembered as a handsome man with smooth olive
skin and gleaming white teeth. Allan is buried in a grave with no marker in the Stacy Cemetery in Stacy, Minnesota.

Lizzie spent much of her remaining years living alone or with her daughter, Fern. Lionel Sheppard remembers a
time when she injured herself, and he returned from his work sailing on the Great Lakes with the merchant marines.
He stayed with Lizzie from the spring of 1954 to the following spring in an apartment she had above a tailor shop on
Concord right behind the Astor Theater.

Lizzie died in 1975 in St. Paul. Many remember her as dramatic and flamboyant. Richard Dennis remembers his
great grandmother as a sweet old lady with a soft voice. He and his sisters looked forward to visits with her when
they played tiddly winks and had tea parties. Chris (nee Dennis) Rydel remembers Lizzie called a west side grocer
and a delivery boy brought vanilla wafers, tea, and milk for their parties. Richard Dennis recalls playing heads or
tails for pennies. Lizzie set out of jar of pennies and allowed her great grandchildren to keep the coins they called
correctly. They used the money to buy candy. Lizzie is buried in Acacia Cemetery in Mendota Heights, Minnesota.
Her gravestone reads:

YELLOW BIRD
Lizzie M. Sheppard
1890 - 1975

A photograph in the possession of Deloris (nee Hardman) Wiesner shows Ma Sheppard as many remember her.

Today - July, 2001 - Allan and Lizzie have more than 170 living descendants, and many of them are still in
Minnesota. A photograph of their two surviving children, Lionel and Alice, was taken by this writer at Lionel's
daughter Laura's wedding in June, 1999.

*Over the years, Lizzie held her enrollment with White Earth Indian Reservation and her Indian identity. The Indian
Census Roll for White Earth Reservation taken on 1 April 1930 lists Lizzie (#1333) with her children (#1334
through #1340): Alice, Louise, Grace, Mervyn, Robert, Fern, and L[io]nel. It is not known why Irene is listed as
Louise. Some family folklore suggests Irene was originally named after Lizzie's friend from school, Louise Gardner,
and the name was changed after Lizzie had a disagreement with Louise Gardner.

**1920 is the year given by Alice. However, a school record indicates the girls left public school later:

                    Notes for Grace Melinda Sheppard:

                    The Voice 12 May 1989 Page 4

                    Remembering when

                    When cracked watermelon was the treat and shows were 5 cents at the Alahambre
                    Grace Sheppard

                         CoCo Willet and the gang didn't belong to a nudist club, they just went swimming, under the High
                    Bridge, naked because they couldn't afford bathing suits. Our swimming pool was the old Mississippi River.
                    Steve Gross saved my life at age 10. He pulled me out of a swift current in the river.
                         Our evening snack was not Pizza Plus, etc. Old Sol Cohen used to give us his cracked watermelons from
                    his grocery store on Fairfield and Wabasha. We'd divide them among us.
                         Each week we'd get a nickel for a bath at Wilder Public Bath on Kellogg. Instead, we would go across
                    the rocks and take a sponge bath in their sinks in the rest rooms. We did this so we could go to the 5 cent
                    show at the Alahambre on Sunday. We had no baths, just toilets.
                         Our roller rink was on the cement dock of F.O.K.'s on W. Fairfield Ave. Our parents got us roller skates
                    at the Salvation Army for 15 cents.
                         Our dance hall was beside the big drinking fountain next to the pavilion. We could hear the music from
                    the pavilion and dance at Harriet Island.
                         We had 3 sleds among 14 of us. So the boys got a tie from the railroad and chained it to the 3 sleds and
                    we had a bob sled for all 14 of us.
                         Our playground and ballfield was at McCauley's on W. Fillmore, on a lot they owned next to the dump.
                         We lived on a house boat across from Harriet Island. One day Jim Kennedy and Peanuts came across the
                    rocks and called to me and said, "Jim got long pants."
                         One time Mrs. Dufaur had to provide a Thanksgiving dinner for her 12 children and their wives and
                    brothers-in-law. She didn't have a kettle large enough, so she made the most wonderful Boo-ya in a large
                    chrome-lined boiler and had to stir it with a new boiler wooden stick. She even invited me and we all had
      plenty of homemade pumpkin pie and bread.
           Our sledding place was old green fields, the bumps, we called it. The 3 green grass hills from the end of
      the Wabasha Bridge toward the Harriet Island. We had no sleds so we slid on large pieces of tin and
      cardboard.
           My cousin, Louise Fandel, owned the caves by Villaume Box & Lumber Co. These were her deep
      freeze. She'd wrap all the apples from their tree in newspaper and keep them in there and treated us to apples
      all winter.
           We just about lived at the Old Neighborhood House on E. Fillmore, when Miss Koury was supervisor.
      We took dancing lessons for 2 cents, sewing lessons for 1 cent and cooking lessons for 2 cents. Our warming
      house was McCauly's old stinky chicken house. We'd warm up by the big pot belly stove and hear the
      chickens getting their heads chopped off. Ha! Ha! Us girls had one pair of black stockings. I got mine wet
      and just let them stand up and dry. They were so stiff.
           The only time we got Halloween costumes was when I made that old Gus play his fiddle faster and faster
      until his bills fell out of his pocket. We all got jeans and big farmer straw hats.
           Christmas was such a joyful time for us at church, Emmanuel Lutheran. When "Bullets" got up with his
      little tan suit and sang - Away in the Manger - by himself. We would get our 25 cent bag of goodies. Ma had
      to go to Bannon's and charge 6 dolls. The sixth one was for Marie Gross.

      Dear Shoody:

      I must say that I was never happier to hear from anyone than I was when I read your lovely letter. Thanks a
      million Shoody and I hope to receive many more in the future.

      I want to thank you for the interest that you take in my marriage. It makes me feel as if I had done the right
      thing when I have someone like you to confirm my actions. You can rest assured that Margie is the only girl
      in the world for me, and that she is a very wonderful and remarkable person. She is very well educated and
      we have everything in common. So far everything is swell and I can see no reason why it shouldn't continue
      to be that way. We are both young and healthy and have our lives ahead of us and I know that we shall be
      very happy together.

      I imagine you are wondering where I am and what I am doing. Well, I['m] very sorry, but I cannot disclose
      anything pertaining to position or state of training all I can tell you is that I am hale & hearty and am happy
      here in my present outfit. You know, that this is the first time that I have ever settled down in all the time
      that I have been in the army and it feels swell.

      I was very pleased to find out that everything is going so well at home. Please give Judy a big hug & a kiss
      for me, and tell her I will deliver them in person, after the war. Give my love to the rest of the kids too. eh.

      Well Shoody, thanks again for the lovely letter and remember that I am always glad to receive any advice
      that you may deem necessary to pass on to me. Perhaps I would be a much better person today if someone
      would have advised me a little more when I was younger. Oh well, I always say that everything happens for
                    the best and my life hasn't been exactly empty.

                    Your Brother

Notes for Norman F. Sheppard:

Norman Sheppard -> Allan Sheppard -> Alice Sheppard -> James Dennis Jr. -> Sandra Dennis

From The Descendants of John Bendall (~1638) of Cam, Arnold Bendall, Edited and Revised by PJ Bendall (page
152 of draft 1t):

[Norman Frederick Sheppard was] born on 27 Aug 1864 at Paradise House, Bath. In the 1881 census at 6 St
Margaret’s [T]errace, St Margaret’s Road, Cheltenham: Norman F Sheppard, aged 17, drapers assistant, born at
Bath (at the same location: 16 draper’s assistants, 5 draper’s clerks, 1 cabinet maker and 2 general servants).
***
Norman's granddaughter, Alice (nee Sheppard) Willett, reports that according to family folklore, Norman came to
the United States as a stowaway on a ship when he was 16 years old. Based on the 1881 census information above,
he was likely a little older. While I have been unable to locate Norman Frederick Sheppard on a passenger list or
naturalization record, it is possible that Norman immigrated about 1885. His death certificate of 1935 indicates he
had been in the United States 50 years at the time of his death.

Norman F. Sheppard's death certificate documents:

Birth: 10 August 1874 in England
Parents: Allen Sheppard (England) and Alice Morrison (England)
Death: 5 January 1935 in Billings, Yellowstone, Montana
Age at death: 60 years
Principal cause of death: Sinusitis broncho pneumonia
Marital status at death: Widowed
Spouse: Mary Sheppard
Occupation: Grocery clerk
Residence: 922 Miles Avenue
Number of years in USA: 50 years
Burial: Billings, Montana
Informant: Cecil C. Sheppard, 922 Miles Ave., Billings, Mont.

The informant is Norman's son. The date of birth is likely incorrect as it would make Norman about age 14 when he
married Irene Coursolle. The parents listed are incorrect; Norman's father is Thomas Sheppard and his mother is
Frances Alice Morris. The spouse listed on the certificate, Mary Sheppard, is Norman's second (or other) wife;
Norman's wife, Irene, is the mother of his five children: Allan, Thomas, Walter, Cecil, and Ethel.

It is believed that after Irene died, Norman enrolled their four boys, Allan, Thomas, Walter, and Cecil in an Indian
training school (perhaps originally at Flandreau, and later at Pipestone) and left their youngest, their daughter, Ethel,
with Irene's sister, Nancy Felix, in Prior Lake, Minnesota.

A 1909 Sisseton and Wahpeton Annuity Pay Roll shows - #849 through #853 - All[a]n Shepp[a]rd (age 19), with his
siblings, Thomas (16), Walter (13), Cecil (10), and Ethel (9). They are all listed as living in Prior Lake, Minnesota.
Under the column "Signature For Cash Or Name Of Person To Whom Order Check Is Drawn" Allan's name is
written for his payment, and his father, Norman Sheppard's name is written for the minor siblings' payments.

Malinda's obituary appears in The Cass Lake Times (1 July 1938):

At two o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, August 19 the largest funeral ever conducted at Alliance Church at Cass Lake
was held in memory of our departed sister, Mrs. Ed Duffy. Mrs. Malinda Goodwin Duffy was born at Pine City July
10, 1865 and departed to be with the Lord at 4 o'clock on Sunday afternoon, August 14 at her home in Cass Lake
being 73 years of age. She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, Ed Duffy; six daughters, Mrs. Shepherd of St. Paul,
Mrs. Gardner of Berkshire, Mass., Mrs. [Lego], Mrs. Blanchard, Mrs. Nason and Mrs. Budrow all of International
Falls; one son, Fred Goodwin of International Falls; also the father of her children, Scott Goodwin. She leaves three
brothers, Rev. Frank Porter of Pine Bend, Ed Porter of Nett Lake and Nels Porter of Idaho; also thirty grandchildren
and ten great grandchildren; many brothers and sisters in Christ and many friends. Mrs. Duffy became a devout
Christian while at Cass Lake and united with the Alliance Church where she served the Lord faithfully until her
death. Friends and relatives gathered from far and near and we were convinced that a life devoted to God is not a life
of less influence and fewer friends but just the opposite. Her life had radiated out to scores of people a[n]d all knew
her as a faithful Christian. May many be encouraged to follow her example.

                    From Phil Bendall:

                    17 The Paragon Bath
                    Jan 3rd 1917

                    Dear Arnold

                    Your letter was quite a surprise & I was very pleased to receive it. I heard something of your business
                    worries through Oliver, but I did not know you had been so ill, am glad to hear you are so much better, but I
                    can understand how careful you have to be. My health has not been good for the last six months or more, on
                    Oct 6th I had two cists removed, I got over the worst of the operation fairly quickly but it takes a long time
                    to pull up again straightly and I cannot yet use my arms freely but the Dr says it will come in time. Uncle
                    Walter died very suddenly, heart trouble, although he never knew it, he was unwell a few days, & was
                    getting better, when in a moment he passed away in his corner chair, he felt his son Douglas' death very
                    much, a year or more before. Douglas' widow & darling girl went back to New Zealand. Mercy Hibbard died
                    some years ago. Poor Julia died also some years ago & Allen married again four years ago, he has another
                    little son, Peter, by his second wife, that makes seven sons in all. I will tell you brief news of them all. Cecil
                    who is with his Father in business joined the Army last May, he is married, is just getting his commission.
                    Claude who went to Canada & was doing well in the Royal Bank of Canada, enlisted in Canada & rose to
                    Sergeant, he was discharged owing to injuries received from shell fire last Oct in France. While at hospital at
                  Ramsgate, he became engaged to one of the Sisters, they were married on Aug 31st & have returned to
                  Canada, & Claude to his Bank. Claude will get alright in time, he is much better, we like his wife very much
                  & they are most happy. Bunty also went to Canada & was doing well, he also enlisted there & came to
                  England with the 1st Bn he was a private. for a time & was given his commission in the 10th Infantry, he is
                  now in the Royal Flying Corps, he has seen a deal of fighting in France & had many narrow escapes. I have
                  written to him today & told him of your letter, no doubt you will hear from him. Bertram who was in the N.
                  S. Yeomanry when the war broke out, was called up at once, he had sixteen months in France, he is 2nd
                  Lieut. & is now in Mesopotamia. Fred joined the Army at once at the age of 18, he has had seventeen
                  months in France, he has just been made Lieut. & is training now for the . Laurence who is 14 is still at
                  school & in the O.T.C. Peter who is only three, says in the next war "he is going to do his bit". I think
                  Allen's seven sons are doing all they can for their Country. Alfred & Kate have shut up their house for the
                  time being & are at Chepstow, Alfred doing military duties. Oliver you will have heard from. Bertie's eldest
                  son Lewis is in the R.F.C. Before my illness I was working in the patients kitchen at the Bath War Hospital,
                  as soon as I am stronger, I hope to go back, my voluntary post is kept open for me. There are 600 beds there.
                  I went to Allen when Julia was taken ill & remained till she died, it was a sad illness with a serious
                  operation, which proved useless I remained on, taking care of the boys until Allen married again. I am now
                  living in a tiny Flat, my Income is very small but I am able to be quite comfortable. Your family are quite
                  growing up, the years slip by so quickly, when Bunty was home on leave last Nov. he was talking about you;
                  Bunty is now 24, he has had a host of experiences during this war & he is a fine soldier. Before he joined the
                  R.F.C. he was intelligence Officer. This is a long letter, but I think you will like to hear news of the family.
                  Bunty's address is 2nd Lieut N.L. Sheppard No. 11 Squadron, R.F.C., B.E.F., France. I really forget the date
                  Uncle Walter died, I shall be going to the Abbey Cemetery soon when I will send you particulars of dates etc
                  of Uncle Walter, Douglas & Julia. I don't know where Mercy Hibbard is buried, but could find out & will
                  also go to the Baptist Cemetery. Allen is much worried with his now large business, owing to being so short
                  of help, so many of his men have joined the Army. My sister Ada who now lives in Bath, is in one of his
                  offices. My brother Norman, who has lived for many years in the States has just married a second time.

                  My kindest remembrance to your wife & family

                  Believe me to remain
                  Your affectionate cousin

                  Ethel

I have been unable to locate Jane's grave. While it seems likely that she was buried at St. Peter's Cemetery, I can
locate neither the gravestone nor a record of the burial.

                   While the age on Jane's death certificate would indicate she was born about 1827, it is more likely
                   - from St. Boniface church records and the Red River Settlement census information for Michael
                   Kilcool - that she was born between 1831 and 1835 (see marri

Marriage Notes for Joseph Coursolle and Jane Kilcool:

From Anderson/Woolworth's book, Through Dakota Eyes:

    Joseph Coursolle or Joe Gabbro was known as Hinhankaga or The Owl to the Dakota Indians. Born near
present-day Devils Lake, North Dakota, in about 1833, he was the son of Pierre Coursolle, a French-Canadian fur
trader, and Base-deche-xmiou, a Sisseton Dakota. After his parents' death in the early 1840's, he was reared and
educated by Henry H. Sibley at Mendota. By 1850 he was a blacksmith at Mendota. He married Jane Kilkool, a
white woman, two years later and had a family of at least eight children. Between 1856 and 1860, they lived at
Traverse des Sioux where he was a teamster and fur trader, but by the time of the war, they were living in the mixed-
blood community at the Redwood Agency.
    Fleeing the fighting, most of the family escaped to Fort Ridgely where Coursolle enlisted in Captain Joseph
Anderson's company of mounted militia, a unit that fought at Birch Coulee. Subsequently Coursolle worked as a
guide and scout for General Sibley, continuing with Sibley's command into the summer of 1863. By 1870 Coursolle
and his family were living at Traverse des Sioux and five years later they moved to Santee, Nebraska, where he died
in about 1893.
    Coursolle's oral account of the war was passed to his son and grandson, Clem Felix...

Many of the details of the biography in Through Dakota Eyes can be documented, but there are, of course, some
inconsistencies.

1841
According to genealogist MK Smith of West St. Paul, Minnesota, Joseph Coursolle became connected with Henry
H. Sibley after the death of his mother. She reports that a list of Mixed Bloods of the Minnesota River dated 31 July
1841 shows Joseph Coursolle, Francois LaFramboise, Jean B. Lord by their guardian, H. H. Sibley. The same
document dated 13 August 1841 shows Joseph Coursolle by his guardian, B. W. Brisbois; Therese Brisbois by her
husband, B. W. Brisbois.

1843
Joseph's baptismal record can be found at the Minnesota Historical Society archives under Cathedral of St. Paul
records (BA1.2 S2C3 Vol. 1), number 117. It indicates Joseph was baptized in 1843 at the age of 13 which would
put his birth in 1829 or 1830. His parents are listed as Joseph - not Pierre - Coursol and Base-deche-xmiou. Father
Galtier baptized Joseph. His godparents are G. P. Godefri and Louise Pepin.

1847
A list - Confirmation 1847 - from St. Peter's in Mendota (copy to me courtesy of Judy Strandmark) shows Joseph
Coursolle among the confirmed. Also listed is Genevieve Kilkoul, Joseph's future wife.

~1848
Joseph Coursolle's first child is Henry Coursolle. MK Smith reports:

In an oral history related by Ernest Coursolle, great grandson of Henri Coursolle, he states that according to family
folklore when Josesph was in his teens and living in Mendota, he met and fell in love with Margaret Garceau, a
young French-Canadian girl, who was working as a maid in the home of Henry H. Sibley. The result of this love
affair was a child, Henri Coursolle. Margaret's parents, Jean Garceau and Marie Gingras Garceau of Little Canada
would not allow a marriage between their daughter and a half Indian young man so they never married. Margaret
returned to her home, gave birth to Henri, and then married Joseph Isaac Morrisette, a widower with two young sons
of his own...
The story is backed up by a document obtained from the Santee Agency in Nebraska. It is signed with the mark of
Margaret Morrisette and states:

I, Margaret Morrisette of Little Canada settlement near St. Paul Min. Ter., having been duly sworn, depose & say
that I am the mother of an illegitimate child, whose father is a Half Breed Sioux of the Sisseton Band & whose name
is Joseph Coursolle. My said child is named Henry & has always lived with me. I am a white woman. Henry is
therefore one fourth Sioux & three fourths white. I am now married to Joseph Morrisette. My maiden name was
Margaret Garso. I am twenty-six & my son Henry six years of age.

1849
A young Jane Kilcool (same as Genevieve Kilkoul in the 1847 confirmation list) marries Francois/Francis Robert.

***

1850
The 1850 US Census shows Joseph working as a blacksmith in Mendota, Minnesota at the home of his future wife,
Jane (nee Kilcool) Robert. The 1850 US Census shows the household of a blacksmith, Joseph Robinette (age 50),
and his wife Cecelia (36) in Mendota, Dakota, Minnesota. Cecelia is Jane Kilcool's mother, Cecilia (nee Turpin)
Kilcool Robinette. Cecilia is apparently in a second marriage, and Joseph Robinette is Jane's stepfather.

Below Cecilia in the census is listed Jane Robinson (age 21). This is likely Jane (nee Kilcool) Robert, Cecilia's
daughter from her marriage with Michael Kilcool. Jane is a young widow. Her actual age is more likely in the teens
and could be as young as 15. Jane had been married to Francis Robert, brother of Captain Louis Robert. One of the
two records of this marriage lists Francis Robert as Francois Robinson. Francis Robert died on 27 September 1849.

From the Minnesota Genealogical Journal 1984-1986, p. 5 (found at the Minnesota History Center):

The Minnesota Pioneer (1849)
Vol 1 No 23 Thurs Sept 27 1849

Died: On the 27th inst., of Consumption, at this place, Francois Robert, age about 30 years, much lamented by a
large circle of friends

Listed below Jane in the census are the children in the Robinette household: Joseph, Jr. (age 16), Vancoise (11),
Henriette (8), Mary R. (3), and Joseph L. (2). It is not clear if Cecilia is the birth mother of the oldest children; as I
will later document, she was in her first marriage until at least May, 1835 and - at that time - had three daughters
under the age of 15 living. An IGI record gives the marriage of Cecile Turpin and Joseph Robinette on 6 June 1842
at St. Pierre (St. Peter's Church) & St. Paul, Mendota. IGI records show the following children are theirs: Marie,
Christened 9 August 1840, St. Pierre & St. Paul; Emelie Mathilde, C. 24 January 1841, St. Pierres; Henriette
Elisabeth, C. 13 November 1842, St. Pierre & St. Paul; Helene, C. 28 July 1844, St. Pierre & St. Paul; Henri, C. 23
December 1845, St. Pierre & St. Paul; and Louis Amable, C. 26 August 1850, St. Pierre & St. Paul.

Listed below the children in the census are Jane Demarce (age 12), Joseph Coursolle (21, a blacksmith), and
Hypolite Martin (47, a carpenter).

1852
Joseph Coursolle's second child is Joseph, Jr. MK Smith reports that Joseph, Jr. was born 26 July 1852 and his
mother is Apan, the daughter of Tomah, Chief of a band of Mdewakanton Sioux near Red Wing. Apan was working
as a servent for Henry H. Sibley at the time of Joseph, Jr.'s birth. MK Smith reports that Apan later married Joseph
Turpin, the son of Joseph Turpin and Angelique Laliberte and brother of Cecilia Turpin. Apan later appears on
censuses and in Indian rolls as Ellen Turpin. While it is seems Apan did indeed marry a Joseph Turpin, it is not
known if her Joseph Turpin was the son of Joseph Turpin and Angelique Makwa (and therefore brother of Cecilia
Turpin Kilcool Robinette) or the son Joseph Vermette dit Turpin and Angelique Laliberte who was born in 1832 in
the Red River Settlement.

Several months before Joseph, Jr.'s birth, on 23 February 1852, Joseph Coursolle married Jane (nee Kilcool) Robert.
The Ramsey County marriage record (see the following page) is difficult to read:

I the undersigned certify that I have joined - of matrimony Joseph Coursolle and - Robert widow of - Robert - - -
Joseph Turpin, Joseph Robinet and many others. They were married at Mendota on the 23rd day of February 1852

Joseph is found with two children at Traverse des Sioux in 1855. From the Minnesota Genealogical Journal 1987-

334. Joseph, Child, 1/4, Si, Joseph Coursolle, F.

1857
MK Smith reports that the 1857 Territorial Census also shows the family in Traverse des Sioux. In March of 1857,
however, during the Spirit Lake conflict, Joseph Coursolle is operating a trading post about eight miles north of
Springfield, Minnesota. The post is shown as "Gaboo's Camp" in Folwell's A History of Minnesota Volume 11 on a
map labeled Vicinity of Masacres by Inkpaduta near Spirit Lake, Iowa, and Springfield (now Jackson), Minnesota,
in March, 1857. On page 405 of Folwell's book is the following account:

...March 26, the day of the massacre at Springfield....two settlers from the Des Moines came in with a report that the
Indians were in camp in a grove near the cabin of one Coursalle, an Indian trader living eight miles north of
Springfield. Captain Bee at once directed his march across the trackless prairie to that point....After three days...they
reached Coursalle's grove, only to find that Inkpaduta had gone on westward to Heron Lake. On the night of the
twenty-eighth Captain Bee asked for volunteers to continue the pursuit the next day. The whole company stepped to
the front. A march of fifteen miles, as estimated, with Coursalle for guide, brought the command to Heron Lake....A
halt had been made here by the Indians, but the signs, as read by the guide, were two days old....

The book, Legends, Letters and Lies: Readings on Inkpadutah and the Spirit Lake Massacre, Park Genealogical
Books, contains many references to Joseph Coursalle (p. 21, 48-49, 70, 73, 75, 82, 84-85, 120), Caboa (p. 73, 75),
Caboo (p. 44, 85), and Gaboo (p. 70, 82, 84, 120). The accounts in this book indicate Joseph's wife (the woman
with him at the time of the Spirit Lake Massacre) was a full-blooded Indian woman. It is not clear then if this
woman was Jane Kilcool Robert Coursolle whose father was Irish and mother was French Canadian.

1862
According to Anderson/Woolworth's book, Through Dakota Eyes, the Coursolle family was living at the Lower
Sioux Agency in 1862. An account of their experiences during the 1862 Minnesota Indian War - as told by Joseph
Coursolle and recalled by his grandson, Clem Felix - begins on page 57 of that book.
1863
From Midwest Pioneers: Explorers of Early Minnesota, pages 612-613:

    When General Sibley had completed his plans for the expedition against the Sioux in 1863, he notified the troops
that were in camp near the Redwood river what day he would be there. Great preparations were made, and amid the
playing of bands and waving of flags he was received with much distinction and honor.
    It was decided there as to which scouts were to go on the expedition, and which were not to go....The following
are the names of those who were to go as scouts with General Sibley's expedition...Joseph Coursall...

1865
MK Smith reports that the Coursolle family appears on the 1865 Wheatland, Rice County Census (I have not been
able to locate this census record) and the child Irene (Reine) was born 27 January 1863 and baptized in Mendota,
Minnesota. The Church of St. Peter in Mendota records the baptism of a Regina Coursole (#906) whose parents are
Joseph Coursole and Janina Kilcole. This could be Irene's baptism record.

1866
An IGI record gives the following birth: Marie Victoire Coursolle, 13 April 1866, Saint Peter, Nicollet, Minnesota;
Father: Joseph Coursolle, Mother: Jane Kilcool.

1870's
MK Smith reports the Coursolle family is in Traverse des Sioux on censuses in the 1870's and at the Santee
Reservation in Nebraska in the 1880's.

An internet-published Minnesota census index shows the following people with a Coursol surname in Traverse,
Nicollet County, Minnesota in 1870: Jane, Joseph, Joseph, Lanen, Laren, Lewis, Nancy, Philoman, Victoria, and
William.

1887
An 1887 Census of Santee Indians (see following page) shows - #62 through #65 - Joseph Coursoll[e], Sr. or Kabupi
(age 58), his wife, Jane (51), and their daughters, Delia (15) and Cecilia (13).

Joseph and Jane's daughter, Irene Young (#66, age 24), is shown in the census with Irene's daughter, Emily (#67,
age 3). It is reported (Santee Agency note) that Irene was divorced from her first husband, Alexander Young. It is
believed that Emily died at an early age as she does not appear with Irene in later censuses.

Also shown in the census is Joseph and Jane's daughter, Mary LeClair (#68, age 21), with Mary's daughter, Mary
(#69, age 1/2). 1888
In Visitation of England and Wales, Edited by Frederick Arthur Crisp, Volume 15, privately printed 1908, it is
reported that Irene Coursolle was married to Norman Frederick Sheppard at Running Water, South Dakota on 16
May 1888 by J. H. Atkenson, Justice of the Peace.

1892
An 1892 List of Sioux Scouts and Soldiers (prepared in 1891) lists Joseph Coursolle, as deceased at the time. The
document is interesting as it lists Mrs. Ellen Turpin as a widow - while it appears that Ellen is the mother of Joseph's
son, Joseph, Jr., it is not clear if Joseph and Ellen were ever actually married.

Joseph Coursolle died sometime between 1887 - when he appears on the 1887 Census of Santee Indians - and 1892 -
when Jane is listed as his widow on the 1892 List of Sisseton Wahpeton Scouts and Soldiers.

1893
An 1893 Santee Agency Census of Indians shows - #48 through #50 - Joseph and Jane's daughter, Irene She[p]pard
(age 30) with her sons All[a]n (age 4) and Thomas (2). Jane Coursoll[e] (age 57), is shown with daughter Cecilia
(19) - #58 through #59. Jane's husband, Joseph Coursolle, is deceased by this time.

1900
Jane Coursoll appears on the 1900 US Census in Mendota Township, Dakota County, Minnesota in the household of
Hypolite and Cecilia Auge (her son-in-law and daughter). She states she is 66 years old at the time.

Aged Man Dies At Indian School Hospital
The death of Joseph Courolle occurred Tuesday afternoon at the hospital at the Indian School. Mr. Courolle had
been in poor health for about two years, and nine months ago entered the hospital for treatment for carcinoma of the
eye ball which caused his death. The deceased had reached the age of 88 years and 7 months at the time of his
death and had been a member of the Minnesota Mdewakonton Sioux Band. He resided at the Redwood County
reservation near Morton, Minn., before coming to Pipestone. The body was taken to Morton and funeral services
were to be held at that place Thursday. Isaac Courolle, a son, who had also been a patient at the hospital here,
accompanied the body to Morton.

The obituary of Joseph Coursolle, son of Joseph Coursolle and Apan/Ellen (typed from copy of paper of unknown
origin):

Pioneer Dies Near Pipestone, Had Led Colorful, Vivid Life

Joseph Coursolle Had Been Captured by Indians

Last Tuesday a thin old man, still tall and straight, was carried out of the Government hospital at Pipestone. Here
was a man who had been a real pioneer of Minnesota years before it became a state. Through narrow rocky trails.
Joseph Coursolle remembered bumping along with an oxen team delivering mail. He freighted lumber when only
nineteen.

When Joseph Coursolle died, he was eighty-nine years old. In that full span of life he crowded many activities.
Fourteen years before the great Civil war, Joseph Coursolle was born near the present town of St. Peter, Minn. In
those thick green forests he learned hunting, trapping, and fishing. He vividly remembered traveling as a missionary
among the Indians in North Dakota and northern Minnesota. The son of a Frenchman and an Indian, he soon
became adept at many tongues and was interpreter for Father Ravoux.

During the massacre of 1862 Joseph Coursolle was captured as a white child at Fort Ridgely.

Mr. Coursolle married at forty to Rose Prescott of Shakopee. He was a member of the Catholic church for many
years till he married the second time. He then joined the Episcopal church, of which he remained a member till his
death, Tuesday, March 16.

Barkers, medicine men, exhibitions of strength and skill - all these Coursolle recalled when he entertained with the
Sisseton Indian shows twenty-three years ago throughout the United States.

Of special interest to those in Redwood Falls is the cabin that now stands in Ramsey State Park. But how many
know that in that same wooden structure were crowded thirty-five Indians to be take to Mankato to be hanged?
Three of them died there, Mr. Coursolle said.

Joseph Coursolle was buried Thursday, March 18, at the Bishop Whipple cemetery. Captain Moss, assisted by Rev.
St. Clair conducted the services. Survivors are: three children, Mrs. Jessie Larsen, Morton, Minn.; Mrs. Cora
Youngbear, Van Hook, N. Dak.; Isaac Coursolle, Morton; thirteen grandchildren; one sister, Mary LeClaire of St.
Paul, and a large number of nephews and nieces. Pall bearers were: Charles Goodthunder, Moses Columbus, Alec
Walker, Sam Bluestone, George St. Claire, and Harry Laurence.

The first board of county officers, after the removal of the county seat, were: Commissioners, Hiram Brackett,
George Goodwin and Edward Jackson; auditor, Adolph Munch; register of deeds, Don Willard; [county] attorney,
treasurer and superintendent of schools, John D. Wilcox.

Chengwatana, page 276-277:
This town derived its name from the Chippewa words, "chengwa" (pine) and "tana" (city), applied to an Indian
village which from time immemorial had been located near the mouth of Cross Lake. This locality had long been a
rallying point for Indians and traders. When the writer visited it, in 1846, it had the appearance of an ancient place of
resort. Half-breeds and whites with Indian wives settled here, and in 1852 there were several log houses, and a hotel
kept by one Ebeneser Ayer. There was also a dam built for sluicing logs. Among the early settlers were Duane
Porter, George Goodwin, Herman Trott, John G. Randall, Emil, Gustave and Adolph Munch.

Marriage Notes for Duane Porter and Mary LaPrairie:

Internet-published text from Midwest Pioneers: Fifty Years in the Northwest (William Folsom):

Chengwatana, page 276-277:
This town derived its name from the Chippewa words, "chengwa" (pine) and "tana" (city), applied to an Indian
village which from time immemorial had been located near the mouth of Cross Lake. This locality had long been a
rallying point for Indians and traders. When the writer visited it, in 1846, it had the appearance of an ancient place of
resort. Half-breeds and whites with Indian wives settled here, and in 1852 there were several log houses, and a hotel
kept by one Ebeneser Ayer. There was also a dam built for sluicing logs. Among the early settlers were Duane
Porter, George Goodwin, Herman Trott, John G. Randall, Emil, Gustave and Adolph Munch.

Also page 277:
In 1856 an effort was made to found a village on the site of the old Indian town of Chengwatana. Judd, Walker &
Co. and Daniel A. Robertson surveyed and platted the village of Alhambra, but the name was not generally
accepted, and the old Indian name of Chengwatana superseded it. The town of Chengwatana was organized in 1874.
The first supervisors were Duane Porter, Resin Denman and Ferdinand Blank.

Also page 277:
Duane Porter, the son of a surgeon in the United States Army in the war of 1812, was born in Washington [C]ounty,
New York, in 1825; came west as far as Illinois in 1852, and to St. Croix Falls in 1844. He was married in 1848 to
Mary [Laprairie], and in the same year located at Chengwatana. His occupation is that of an explorer and
lumberman. He has ten children living.

                    MANY INDIANS GET RELIGION
From http://www.rootsweb.com/~mnpolk/Crookston/many_indians.htm:

REVIVAL AMONG CHIPPEWAS ON WHITE EARTH RESERVATION CONTINUES

At Duane, on the White Earth Reservation, Sunday's big meeting at the Indian camp assembly had
remarkable results among the Chippewas, who were present in large numbers in the Methodist church and in
tents surrounding.

Six were baptized into the Methodist Episcopal faith and several Indians became members of the church.
Fully 100 were given the sacrament of the Lord's supper by Rev. A. H. McKee, Fergus Falls, assisted by
Revs, Henry Nobbs, of St. Paul, J. T. B. Smith of Sauk Center, and Chippewa preacher, N. Couture, and
Duane T. Porter, pastor of the church.

Indians are present from several town on the reservation, and some have traveled 300 miles to the camp
grounds, coming from Odanah, Wis., several driving teams all the way, others coming by train to Fosston.

The oldest Chippewas say they have never witnessed such great religious fervor and so many genuine
conversions. There was no disorder at the grounds, and, although the meetings have been in session for ten
days, not one case of bad conduct has been reported by police present.

Into the middle of the night the Indians keep up the singing and prayer with intense zeal and early in the
morning their songs and prayers can be heard loud and sincere.

From Memoirs of the Methodist Church - 1945, p 346 - 347 (found at the Minnesota History Center):

Duane F. Porter

Duane F Porter was born December 20, 1850 in a log cabin where Taylor's Falls, Minnesota is now located.
His mother was a Chippewa Indian and his father a white man. His youth and early manhood were spent in
logging camps amidst drinking and brawling. He was married in 1878 to a full blooded Indian woman with
whom he lived long and happily until her death.

In 1884 a Presbyterian Missionary stopped him and said, "Jesus died to save sinners. He is calling you
now." A little later these words came to him as he was lying in a roadside ditch coming out of a drunken
stupor and he wa soundly converted. Shortly thereafter he began to assist the missionary in his work and
this led to a lifelong ministry to his fellow Indians.

He was admitted on trial in the Northern Minnesota Conference in 1899, as a full member in 1906, and
served the following appointments: White Earth Indian Mission 1899 - 1905; Duane Indian Mission 1905 -
1918; White Earth Indian Mission from 1919 until his death on August 7, 1944. He was retired in 1928 but
continued to serve his field. Thus for 60 years until the age of 94 he served his Master faithfully among the
Chippewa Indians.

Funeral services were held at Pine Bend Church, White Earth Mission, and interment was made in the
cemetery nearby.

     Information from Frank Stinson:

     From Tales of the Old Home Town by Grant Utley, page 92:

     We read that Stanley Goodwin will speak at the Methodist Church next Sunday. The mention of this
     mother, Matilda Goodwin, brings back memories of one of the most colorful missionaries of early
     Minnesota, Stanley's grandfather, the Rev. Porter.

     Porter had been a riverman on the St. Croix River in the early days of the state, before he got the call to
     preach. Porter had the Chippewa gift of oratory and a good voice which he kept under perfect control. He
     could sway a crowd as a director commands an orchestra, and many a sinner hit the sawdust trail when he
     talked. The Rev. Porter translated the favorite hymns of the turn of the century into Chippewa, and being a
     good singer, he led the Indians in the singing of the jubilant of the shouting Methodists as they were then
     called.

     Matilda Porter, Frank's oldes daughter married a man by the name of Goodwin, a name that goes back to
     Harold Goodwinson, the last of the Saxon kings of England. She was a beautiful regal woman with a good
     singing voice, and was a wonderful addition to the Methodist choir of Cass Lake.

     The career of her father Rev. Porter reads like most of the sky pilots of those early days. Porter had been a
     fighting man as well as an expert riverman. Tales are told that many a tough character of that period made
     the mistake of thinking that River Driver Porter tuned Preacher Porter would not fight. Many woke up with
     a sore head and a bruised rear as a result. Schooled in the rough and tumble fighting of the woods, he could
     kick as well as punch, and when any tough jack attempted to heckle in any of his meetings, Porter could take
     care of him without running for a cop. After a few brushes with Porter, the toughies were willing to let him
     preach against booze and kindred human ills.

     Porter has a place on the Northwoods Hall of Fame along with Frank (Sky Pilot) Higgins and John
     Sornberger. They were a great race of men, those early lumberjack preachers, and they did much to keep the
     early pioneers on the straight and narrow path by reminding them that God Is Not To Be Mocked.

From The Silver Chief by Lucile H. Campey, p. 86 - 87:

Seventy-one people sailed from Sligo in the summer of 1812 on the Robert Taylor, "a very good ship" which Selkirk
had chartered "on account of the settlement to carry out the people." She was a much better prospect than the
Edward and Ann and was properly manned. A second ship, the King George, sailed with her to carry the large
consignment of goods, which included Spanish merino sheep purchased by Selkirk. Those sho sailed on the Robert
Taylor included ten families from Mull and Islay as well as company workers who originated from Ireland and the
Orkney Islands. The families had been recruited by Charles McLean and were thought by Selkirk to have "been
well selected having scarcely any children below 8 years old and a number of lads and lassies fully or nearly grown
and without the parents not super annuated." Alexander McLean's family had attracted special attention. McLean, a
former tacksman with "the rank of a gentleman," was just the sort of settler whom Selkirk wished to attract. He
gave him a township of 10,000 acres along with twelve merino sheep and a subsistence allowance for his family and
servants during their first year at Red River. And to ensure that all went smoothly Selkirk went to Sligo "to be ready
to act according to circumstances." Dining with the captain and his officers on board the ship, on June 24, he
remained on the Robert Taylor until she cleared Sligo Bay and then watched the ships put to sea.

Leading the 1812 expedition of settlers, was Owen Keveny, a brutal Irishman who dealt with disputes by putting
men in irons and having them run the gauntlet between lines of the fellow settlers armed with clubs. The crew
nearly mutinied but quick action by the captain brought matters under control. As the Robert Taylor entered Hudson
Bay on August 24, she was buffeted by a tremendous storm lasting three days. In the midst of the terror and
confusion Mrs. McLean, from Mull gave birth to a daughter. The ship survived the storm and a day later was met
by a schooner from York Factory. The second group had arrived safely and in good time. They would get to Red
River that year, arriving in October. But a shortage of food supplies meant that they too had to spend their first
winter at the newly built encampment of Fort Daer at Pembina.

Marriage Notes for Michael Kilcool and Cecilia Turpin:

Gail Morin's Ancient Register of St. Boniface and Censuses of the Red River Settlement: An Index to the Censuses
for the Years 1827, 1828, 1829, 1830, 1831, 1832, 1833, 1835, 1838, 1840, and 1843 (Kilkool, page 107) provide a
few clues regarding Michael Kilcool and Cecelia Turpin. From the church and census records, it is apparent that
Michael Kilcool and Cecilia Turpin were married in or about the year 1828 and had daughters in or about the years
1829, 1831, 1833, and 1835.

The census records list names for male heads of household only unless the head is a widow. With the heads of
household is given a count of women, sons, and daughters along with counts of acres, bulls, cows, pigs, etc. The
1827 census shows Michael Kilcool is a 40-year-old, unmarried, Roman Catholic man with one house, one stable,
six cows, one ox, three calves, one plough, one harrow, and five acres. His birth place is Ireland.

The 1828 census shows Michael, again age 40, married, with one woman.

The St. Boniface records show a daughter, Marie, born and died in 1829.

B-564, Marie Kilcool, baptised 20 July 1829, born yesterday, of the legitimate marriage of Denis Kilcool and Cecile
Turpin, Godfather: Andre Gaudry, Godmother: Isabelle Normand, Jn Harper priest. (page 28)
S-48, Marie Kilcool, buried 22 July 1829, died yesterday age _ days, daughter of Denis Kilcool and Cecile Turpin,
Godfather: Antoine Caron and Alexandre Macdonell, Jn Harper priest. (page 28)

Children do not appear in the census information until 1831 when Michael is 43 years old with one woman and one
daughter under the age of 15.

The 1832 census shows Michael (age 44) with one woman and one daughter under the age of 15.

The 1833 census shows Michael (age 45) with one woman and two daughters under the age of 15.

The St. Boniface records show a daughter, Marguerite, born in 1834.

B-884, Marguerite Kilkool, baptised 22 October 1834, born 16 October 1834, of the legitimate marriage of Michel
Kilcool and Cecile Turpin, Godfather: Pierre Goulet, Godmother: Marguerite Dease, J.B. Thibault priest. (page 152)

The 1835 census shows Michael (age 47) with one woman and three daughters under the age of 15.

There is no census information for 1834, 1836, and 1837, and Michael Kilcool does not appear in the census
information for 1838, 1840, and 1843. It is not known what happened to Michael Kilcool after 1835. His wife,
Cecilia, appears with their daughter, Jane, on the 1850 US Census in Mendota, Dakota, Minnesota. Cecilia is
married to Joseph Robinette at the time.

Notes: St. Boniface was once a city before becoming part of Greater Winnipeg in Manitoba. St. Boniface was
founded in 1818 with the arrival of the first francophone catholic missionaries from Quebec. It is the site of the first
Catholic Diocese in western Canada established in 1847.

    12        v.    George Goodwin, born 15 April 1835 in Maine; died 11 August 1905; married Nancy LaPrairie Abt. 1860.


     26. LaPrairie (perhaps aka Shoyay) He was the son of 30. Joseph LaPrairie and 31. Pug-o-nay (This is a
best guess for the parents of LaPrairie). He married 27. Kah-dish-quay-zaince.
     27. Kah-dish-quay-zaince, born 1832; died June 1895. She was the daughter of 54. Pi-gea-zuk and 55. Ning-
dah-quay-on.

Notes for LaPrairie:

Genealogist Virginia Angle Rogers reports LaPrairie was born about 1820 and was killed in a battle with the
Dakota. I have no documentation.
***

Information from Frank D. Stinson indicates Nancy LaPrairie’s father was either the son or a brother of Zo-zay. The
information indicates D. F. Porter listed Zo-zay's children and listed Louis LaPrairie (aka El-Ray/Sho-yean/Shoo-ya)
and Shoyay as two different people. Nancy's father could be Shoyay.
***


Notes for Kah-dish-quay-zaince:

Genealogist Virginia Angle Rogers reports Kah-dish-quay-zaince is the mother of Nancy LaPrairie and was born in
1832 and died June 1895. I am seeking documentation.

     Marriage Notes for Nancy LaPrairie and Thomas Gheen:

     From Minneesota Historical Society's Place Names Database:
            St. Louis County
            GHEEN is a village in section 5 of Leiding Township (T. 63N, R. 19W). About 1890, mixed-blood Ojibwe
            brothers William and Stephen Gheen homesteaded a tract east of Gheen at Elbow Lake, developing a
            government farm and trading post, where Stephen was Indian agent for ten years. It had a post office, 1906-
            16, with William as postmaster, for whom the community was named. The post office name was changed to
            Alvina, 1916-18, and changed back to Gheen in 1919; it had a Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific Railway
            station.

 ix.    Alex LaPrairie

        Notes for Alex LaPrairie:

        Information from Frank D. Stinson:

        The information indicates that Alexis had a daughter, Josepha, who was baptized 30 June 1850 at age 2
        years at La Pointe, Wisconsin. The information indicates Isabelle LaPrairie Dingley was the sister of Aleck
        LaPrairie and had two brothers who were in the Civil War and never returned.

        The above information seems to fit better for the old hunter, Joseph LaPrairie Duchene's son, not grandson,
        Alex LaPrairie. Civil War records show:

        La Prairie, Alexis, G, Wisc 7th
        La Prairie, Battice, A, Wisc 5th
        La Prairie, John B., G, Wisc 7th
        La Prairie, Sanford K, Wisc 17th

                   Genealogist Virginia Angle Rogers reports LaPrairie was born about 1820 and was killed in a battle with the
                   Dakota. I have no documentation.

                   Information from Frank D. Stinson indicates Nancy LaPrairies father was either the son or a brother of Zo-
                   zay. The information indicates D. F. Porter listed Zo-zay's children and listed Louis LaPrairie and Shoyay
                   as two different people. Nancy's father could be Shoyay.

From Grace Lee Nute's book The Voyageur, p. 194:

Another early settler east of the Mississippi at the Entry was Joseph Turpin, a native of Montreal. His voyaging
habits had taken him to Prairie du Chien, to the Red River Settlement for several years, and finally to Fort Snelling
about 1831.

....Up to 1836, nearly 500 persons had left the Red River Colony and came to Fort Snelling, in search of new homes,
and several large parties came subsequently. A few of them went on to Wisconsin, Illinois and Missouri, and,some
to Vevay, Indiana, (a Swiss settlement,) but most of the refugees settled in this region, and their descendants
hereabouts are a numerous class. Most of the early residents of Saint Paul were Red River refuigees, as we shall
show a few pages further on....

SOME ACCOUNT OF THE SETTLERS.
As near as I can ascertain, after extensive inquiry, the three or four settlers on the east side were: JOSEPHI
TURPIN, FRANCIS DESIRE, DONALD MCDONALD, "old man" CHORETTE, and, perhaps, SCOTT
CAMPBELL, BARTHOLOMEW BALDWIN, and ABNER POWEL. JOSEPH TURPIN is said to be the first man
who built a house east of the Mississippi. Mr. TURPIN was born at Montreal, Canada, about 1775. He came,
sometime about the beginning of the present century, to Prairie du Chien, with his brother AMABLE, of whom a
sketch is given elsewhere, and subsequently emigrated to Selkirk's Settleiment, where he remained some years. In
1831, as near as I can ascertain, he left Red River with a company of refiulgees, some of whom settled near Fort
Snelling, and. not long after that date, built a house on the east side of the Mississippi. This house he subsequently
sold to JOSEPH RONDO, another refilgee. He afterwards lived many years at Mendota, where he died in 1865-aged
over 90 years....

M K Smith reports that Cecilia Turpin's mother is Angelique Laliberte. If this is correct, Cecilia's mother could not
be the Angelique Laliberte in the St. Boniface baptismal record B-118. That Angelique was age 15 in 1825. Cecilia's
daughter, Marie, was born, baptized, and died in 1829. Angelique is too young in 1825 to have a daughter of child-
bearing age in 1829. From the St. Boniface records:

B-118, Angelique Laliberte, baptised 5 September 1825, age 15 years, daughter of Pierre Laliberte, resident of this
mission, and Joseph Baudry, Godmother: Marguerite Grenon, Ths. Destroismaisons priest. (page 12)

M K Smith reports that Cecilia Turpin's brother is Joseph Turpin, son of Joseph Turpin and Angelique Laliberte. In
the St. Boniface records (B-401), there is a Joseph Turpin who with his wife, Angelique Laliberte, has a son, Joseph
Turpin, born and baptized in 1832. However, some theorize that the parents of Cecilia Turpin and this Joseph
Turpin (b. 1832) are four different individuals. There is supporting evidence for this theory...

As indicated in the baptism record above, the father of Angelique Laliberte is Pierre Laliberte. Gail Morin's Ancient
Register of St. Boniface shows the marriage of this Angelique to Joseph Vermet in 1830:

B-596, Joseph Vermet, baptised 10 January 1830, about _4 years, son of the late Joseph Vermet and Josephte
Villebrun, Godfather: Joseph Enaud dit Delorme, Frs. Boucher priest. (page 36)

M-93, Joseph Vermet, free man of this mission, adult son of the late Joseph Vermet and the deceased Josephte
Villebrun, his mother and father, married 11 January 1830, Angelique Laliberte, minor daughter of Pierre Laliberte
and the deceased Josephte Baudry, Present: Antoine Legros, friend of the groom, Joseph Laliberte, brother of the
bride, Frs. Boucher priest. (page 36)

Pierre Laliberte is shown in the Red River Settlement census information with two daughters over age 15 in 1829
and one daughter over age 15 in 1831. He is not listed in 1830.
Joseph Vermette first appears in the Red River Settlement census information in 1831. He is listed as Jospeh
Vermete, age 25, one married man, with one married woman and "Lives with his f-in-law Laliberte." The following
year, 1832, Joseph Vermette is age 26, one married man, with one married woman, and one son under age 16. The
St. Boniface records show this son is Joseph Turpin:

B-401, Joseph Turpin, baptised 19 February 1832, born 8 February 1832, of the legitimate marriage of Joseph
Turpin and Angelique Laliberte, Godfather: Joseph Hupe, Godmother: Marguerite, F. Boucher priest. (page 52)

In 1833, the Red River Settlement census information shows Joseph Vermette is age 27, one married man, with one
married woman, and two sons under age 16. The St. Boniface records show this second son is Antoine:

B-582, Antoine [Vermette], baptised 29 April 1833, born day before yesterday of the legitimate marriage of [Joseph
Vermette] and Angelique Laliberte, Godfather: ... Laliberte, C. E. Poire priest. (page 99-100)

While I could not locate additional baptism records, the Red River Settlement census information shows Joseph
Vermette and Angelique Laliberte had three sons under 16 in 1835, four sons under 16 in 1838, five sons under 16
in 1840, and seven sons under 16 in 1843.

At the same time that Vermette and Laliberte were starting their family, there is at least one (perhaps more than one)
Joseph Turpin with his own family. From the Red River Settlement census information, Joseph Turpin is listed:

1829, age _, 1 married man, 1 woman, 1 son (over 16), 3 daughters (-15)
1831, age 40, 1 married man, 1 married woman, 4 sons (-16), 1 daughter (-15)
1832, age 41, 1 married man, 1 married woman, 4 sons (-16), 1 daughter (-15)
1835, age 55 [sic], 1 married man, 1 married woman, 1 son (+16), 5 sons (-16), 1 daughter (-15)

A Baptiste Turpin is also in the area and is listed:

1829, age 45, 1 married man, 1 woman, 3 sons (-16), 2 daughters (-15)
1833, age 42, 1 married man, 1 married woman, 5 sons (-16), 1 daughter (-15)

Notes for the surname LaPrairie:

From The Fur Trade in Minnesota: An Introductory Guide to Manuscript Sources, by Bruce M. White, p. 4-5:

An example of the possibilities for research in the sources for Appendix 2 is the puzzling case of a trader known as
La Prairie. He is described in Michel Curot's journal of 1803-04 as an experienced trader assisting John Sayer of the
North West Company in the Folle Avoine or upper St. Croix River area. The following year he is mentioned in a
journal kept at the company's Snake River post and long attributed to Thomas Connor, though probably erroneously.
La Prairie is also recalled in a later reminiscence as being in charge of the American Fur Company's Folle Avoine
trade in the early 1820s in co-operation with Thomas Connor, who, interestingly, is said to have been his son-in-law.
Another source confirms this relationship and says that La Prairie's first name was "Jo."2

In the 1830s and 1840s, references occur in the writings of missionaries to two men named Joseph and Baptiste La
Prairie, who lived at Pokegema Lake near the Snake River and who appear to have been the sons of the elder La
Prairie. Much later, on June 14, 1860, the Taylors Falls Reporter published what appears to be an early version of
the reminiscences of St. Croix Valley historian William H. C. Folsom. He referred to an old trader of the Snake
River area whose son was named Joseph "Le Prairie." This trader, Folsom recalled, had been in the Indian country
as early as the 1770s and continued in the trade until the 1830s. He had become blind in his old age, and the Indians
had supposedly named his "Mushk-de-winini," which Folsom translated as "old blind...Prairie man."3

Though much is known about La Prairie at this point, there remain some puzzling questions about his identity. If La
Prairie was associated with the American Fur Company's Folle Avoine department in the early 1820s, why is there
no reference to him in the extant company rosters for that period? If, as reported, La Prairie was Connor's father-in-
law, why do reliable records show that Connor was married to Susan Duchene?4

The answers to these and other questions become clear when one accepts a theory based on a chain of evidence
pieced together by sing company records, a theory that La Prairie was the family nickname of a trader whose legal
name was Joseph Duchene (also spelled Duchane, Duchaine, and Duchesne) who traded in the St. Croix Valley and
was found in an account book kept by John Sayer & Company for the 1795 outfit in the Fond du Lac department.
There Joseph "Duchane" is listed a being in charge of the Folle Avoine business "adventure" or department. In this
volume, which is one of the most detailed early sources of information on the fur trade in the Fond du Lac
department (see I2, Appendix 1, below) the name La Prairie appears twice. These references occur in two abstacted
lists of employees along with the amounts due them from the company. Significantly, except for La Prairie, to
whom the company owed 146.11 livres, each man named in the two lists also appears elsewhere in the company's
accounts. Furthermore, the debt owed to La Prairie is the same amount calculated as the balance due the trader
Joseph Duchane, whose name does not appear on the abstacted lists.5

There are other links between Joseph Duchene and La Prairie in the American fur Company rosters for the 1818,
1819, and 1820 outfits, where Duchene is also listed as the trader in charge of the Folle Avoine department.
Another bit of evidence appears in the company's roster for 1837, where Joseph Duchene "pere" (senior) appears
among "persons attached to the Northern Outfit at La Pointe" (Wis.) with the notation that he was blind, thus further
corroborating the theory that Joseph Duchene was La Prairie, the "old blind...Prairie man" who was the father-in-law
of Thomas Connor.6

p. 41

Duchene (Duchane, Duchaine, Duchesne), Joseph (also known as La Prairie). Employed by JS & Co. as a clerk in
charge of the Folle Avoine dept. 1795 outfit with wages of 1, 500 l. and a credit of 146.11 l. Employed by the AFC
as a trader in charge of the same dept. (listed as "Duchene's Outfit" in 1818) 1818 and 1819 outfits at $400, the 1820
outfit at $350, and the 1821 outfit for unnamed "services inland." For more on Duchene and his nickname, see
Introduction, p. 4 above. (3b, 3e, I2)

Duchene, Joseph, Jr. Employed as a boatman for the AFC in the Folle Avoine dept. 1818 outfit at $250, as an
interpreter for the 1819 outfit at the same wages, and for the 1820 outfit at 233.33, and as a trader for the 1822 outfit
at the same salary. Probably the son of Joseph Duchene (La Prairie), above. (3b, 3e)

From My First Years in the Fur Trade, The Journals of 1802 - 1804 George Nelson, Edited by Laura Peers and
Theresa Schenck, p. 63:

On one of these occasions, two young men of 20 to 22 years of age, plotted to kill us all. I mean we four. The
widows put us on our guard. Laprairie, the master at the N. W. C. house also warned us and one night he overheard
them say - "we will watch at the door, & when one comes we will shoot him, the report will cause another or
perhaps all to rush out to see, we will shoot them also, & rush in & despatch the rest". Laprairie called out to them
"and have your gorgetten that I shoot deer running thro' the woods? touch them if you dare & I will shoot you like
dogs as you are". - Finding they were discovered they dropped the idea, pretended to be very drunk; & coming to
sleep at the house as they usually did, Smith scolded them very much, took their knives from them & gave them to
me to put by. Laprairie had secured their guns.

p. 70:

About Sun Set we passed the old houses where Laprairie had wintered the year before (1801-2) and where the
Sciouxs had taken him prosoner.

p. 71:

Running over this beautiful lake, the indian lad showed us LaPrairies house & Fort of the preceding year: the place
where he had his traps & the Spot where the Scioux's had hid themselves to catch him on his return home.

p. 74:

There were rumors that the enemy was in the neighborhood of Lac la Coqille, where Laprairie then was wintering
(See p. 32 66) The people, as usual soon got tired of restraint & became leass careful. One morning Laprairie went
to visit his marten traps, contrary to the wishes of the people. Every one, as usual, had had awful dreams the
preceeding night, & was now full of his prophetic impressions. Laprairie would not hear. He crossed the lake, & in
leaping down a bank into a Small creek, he found himself surrounded by several strange indians in warlike attire that
were lying in ambush for him. He had to take them home! - He treated them kindly, as may be supposed, & they
behaved extremely well. There were several hundred of them but the chief would allow but 20, or 30 to enter. They
said they regretted very much the war & would gladly be at peace. "To prove our intentions here a Pipe - the "Pipe
of Peace" I give you with tobacco; present it to them in our name, and say hour desirous we are to be at Peace. But
if all I have said has no effect, & that they will have war, Here is this Crow Skin (a Warrior's head dread dress) &
tomahaw, & you will tell them, it is not fear that makes us sollicit their friendship, & they are too brave themselves
to suspect us of cowardice; - let them chuse, & decide whether they will accept the Pipe & Smoke with us as friends,
or take the tommahawk. We are ready for either, but we would much rather them be our friends." - - They returned,
after staying a few hous, urging him to present their visit & their discourse in a friendly light. -

Some of the Sauteux's67 (our indians) soon after came in. Laprairie told them what had occured; gave the Crow
Skin & tomahawk, repeating what the Scioux's had siad, but kept the Pipe for himself.68 The Sauteuxs consulted: &
at last came to the conclusion [35] that the whole speech was intended as an insult, the more aggravated as there was
no "Pipe" with the Crow Skin & tommahawk. They also decided upon revenging the insult. This was in April,
1802...

68. La Prairie's motive for this is uncertain, but he had been taken prisoner by the Sioux the year before this incident
(see above, fo. 32), he may have wished the war against them to continue.

p. 77:

Such then being the Sequel of the Scioux visit, it is not to be wondered if we felt rather uneasy. The people were
very much displeased with Laprairie, imputing the whole blame to his covetousness in keeping the "Pipe". But I
think that even if he ad given it, the Sauteux's are so proud, haughty & insolent, & vain to show off their bravery [ -
even] though at the expense of their lives, it would not have stopped the war, however it might have put off a battle.
But this indescretion of his certainly increased the animosity, & rendered out situation the most critical.

Thus we continued living in the utmost anxiety, every hour dreading an attack. The N. W. Co, having arrived early
in the Season, had collected [36] all the rice long before we arrived, & with the meat they occasionaly got from the
indians they lived well. It was not so with us: we were often sore pinched. - Laprairie commisserated my situation,
I often eat with him. At last we made a bargain. I was to provide the eatables & he, the tea! Yellow lake was
connected with the river below, by three other, but Smaller lake, two below us,70 very much in shape to the float of
a fish, in which there were always ducks. In the morning early I would steal out after taking "a careful survey of the
coast", go to the river & firing one or two shots killing 3 or 4 ducks. I would run into the river often up to my arm
pits, secure my hunt & run home. A quater of an hour every morning was frequently more time than required to
bring in the daily meat of us two. Laprairie in the mean time would gather wild tea.71 - he had plenty of his own
Sugar: and all was right....

71. This is most likely to have been Labrador tea (Ledum groenlandicum), but it could have been any number of
plants used to make tea in the western Great Lakes region; Nelson noted that La Prairie was "expert in the use of
roots."

p. 210

LA PRAIRIE, JOSEPH (JOSEPH DUCHENE DIT LAPRAIRIE) Listed as clerk in John Sayer and Co., 1795-96;
built and occupied his Fort Folle Avoine on the Yellow River in the fall of 1802. He spent the next years in the St.
Croix valley and was still trading, despite having lost his sight, in 1836 at Lake Pokegama. He died sometime after
1860 (White 1977:4-5, 41; Birk 1989:28-30) His wife, mentioned by Nelson, has been identified as
Pimegeeshigoqua, an Ojibwa, by Douglas A. Birk (1989:29). Despite the twouble caused when La Prairie failed to
deliver pipes sent by the Dakota to the Ojibwa in 1802 (probably as a result of having been taken prisoner by the
Dakota previously: 1802-3, fos.32, 34), Nelson later remembered La Prairie as "a good & well meaning man..."
(Sorel Journal 1836, fo.28). He was also said to be "expert in the use of roots" and plant medicines (1802-3, fo.38).

A Social History of the Fur Trade in the St. Croix Valley

Some fur traders formed loving and stable relationships with their Indian wives. Joseph Duchene, usually known by
the name "La Prairie," spent more than a half-century in the Saint Croix Valley with Pimeegee-shigo-qua, his
Chippewa wife....John Sayer seems to have devoted little attention to promoting the prospects of his mixed-blood
sons Henry and John. It is possible that Henry was attached to the Snake River post in an informal manner. At one
point Sayer, in his usual delicate style, refers to "Henries Squaw." Joseph Duchene, "La Prairie," was much more
supportive of his Metis children and they played a significant role in his trading operations.

CHAPTER 1:
Valley of Plenty, River of Conflict (continued)

The American Fur Company Era

As the Americans moved to assume the fur trade of the St. Croix they adopted the same tactic as the British a
generation before. British traders like Alexander Henry formed partnerships with experienced French traders, such
as Jean Baptiste Cadotte, Sr., to benefit from their superior connections with the Indians. Astor's American Fur
Company followed the same pattern. Their choice to head the St. Croix trading area was Joseph Duchene, known to
everyone in the region by his nickname, "La Prairie." He had been the Northwest Company's most experienced
trader in the Folle Avoine. His son of the same name who became an interpreter joined him in the American Fur
Company.

CHAPTER 2:
River of Pine (continued)
From Fur Trade to Fir Trade

Fur traders, as businessmen familiar with the region and its resources, seemed to be in an excellent position to profit
from the rising market for lumber in the 1830s and 1840s. But turning the opportunity into an actuality proved
frustratingly difficult. Some traders like Joseph Duchene, or as he was known to all, La Prairie, who had come to the
valley as a young man to work for the Northwest Company, were too old by the 1830s to take up a new line of trade.
After working for many years for the American Fur Company in the St. Croix valley, Duchene lived his last days
near Pokegama Lake. He suffered from poor eyesight and was known to the Chippewa as Mushkdewinini, "the old
blind prairie man." Duchene was cared for in those last years by his son-in-law, Thomas Connor, another
Nor'Wester who was disinclined to pursue the opportunities offered by the logging boom. Connor operated a trading
post on the St. Croix River, at the mouth of Goose Creek; content to continue trading with the Chippewa, and
watching the pine float past his door. The Warren and Cadotte families that had so long controlled the trade of the
valley from Lake Superior struggled to make the transition to logging. Lyman Warren saw the handwriting on the
wall in 1838 when he left the American Fur Company. Leaving the Lake Superior country he settled on the
Chippewa River, near the falls and established a sawmill. He was, however, struck with illness in 1847 and he died
before becoming deeply involved with logging. His son William W. Warren was the best educated of the new
generation. He was a young man with a scholarly disposition and weak health. He died in 1853 at the age of twenty-
eight, after completing his manuscript history of the Chippewa people. [5]

From http://www.usinternet.com/users/dfnels/laprairie.htm:

Joseph Duchene La Prairie or Mushkedewinn (Prairie man):
   It is unknown to me who the parents of Joseph were, but from census info he apparently was born between 1750
& 1760 in Canada. There is reference to him arriving in the area of Minnesota in 1775, but the earliest reference
otherwise is that from 1795 to 1799 he was in charge of the Folle Avoine Department of J.Sayer & Co. In 1799
John Sayer replaces Joseph with Joseph Reaume of the same trade territory, however by 1803 John Charles Sayer
moves to the Folle Avoine Dept. to "curb the Generosity of Joseph Reaume & Joseph Laprairie". Between 1802
&1805 Joseph La Prairie is found at Clam Lake (Burnett Co., Wis.), Yellow River (near Webster, Wis.), "Namai-
Kowagon", St.Croix Valley, Snake River & at "Grand Galle". In 1805 John Sayer is furloughed by the Northwest
Co. to Lac des Chats on the Ottawa River and Joseph La Prairie drops out of sight until he is purchasing goods at
Sault Ste.Marie in jul. 1815. He continue to purchase goods at Sault Ste.Marie annually through 1818 and that year
he was employed by the Northwest Co. at posts in the St.Croix Valley & Lac Coutereille Districts. He also made the
shift to the American Fur Co. in 1818, becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen empoyed at the Folle Avoine Dept. He
retired from the fur companies (1827-28) and lost his eye sight shortly there after. In 1835 he is old & blind living
near Frederick Ayer's Pokegama mission.
    Joseph's wife was an Ojibwe woman named Pimeegeeshigoqua and they had at least four children: Joseph Jr.
(b.1800-10), Isabella (b.1790-1810)[married trader Daniel Dingley], Susanne [married trader Thomas Connors on
25 jul.1830] & Jean Baptiste.

Preamble.
Indians agree to the treaty of Prairie du Chien.
A deputation to be sent to Green Bay.
Metals or minerals.
Location for the use of the half-breeds.
Annuity of $2,000 in money or goods to be paid them.
Annual payment for the improvement of their children.
Rejection of certain articles not to affect the validity of the others.
Authority of United States acknowledged.
Ratification.

Articles of a treaty made and concluded at the Font du Lac of Lake Superior, this fifth day of August, in the year of
our Lord one thousand eight hundred and twenty-six, between Lewis Cass and Thomas L. McKenney,
Commissioners on the part of the United States, and the Chippewa Tribe of Indians.

WHEREAS a Treaty was concluded at Prairie du Chien in August last, by which the war, which has been so long
carried on, to their mutual distress, between the Chippewas and Sioux, was happily terminated by the intervention of
the United States; and whereas, owing to

[*269]

the remote and dispersed situation of the Chippewas, full deputations of their different bands did not attend at Prairie
du Chien, which circumstance, from the loose nature of the Indian government, would render the Treaty of doubtful
obligation, with respect to the bands not represented; and whereas, at the request of the Chippewas Chiefs, a
stipulation was inserted in the Treaty of Prairie du Chien, by which the United States agreed to assemble the
Chippewa Tribe upon Lake Superior during the present year, in order to give full effect to the said Treaty, to explain
its stipulations and to call upon the whole Chippewa tribe, assembled at their general council fire, to give their
formal assent thereto, that the peace which has been concluded may be rendered permanent, therefore—

ARTICLE 1.

The Chiefs and Warriors of the Chippewa Tribe of Indians hereby fully assent to the Treaty concluded in August last
at Prairie du Chien, and engage to observe and fulfil the stipulations thereof.

ARTICLE 2.

A deputation shall be sent by the Chippewas to the Treaty to be held in 1827, at Green Bay, with full power to
arrange and fix the boundary line between the Chippewas and the Winnebagoes and Menomonees, which was left
incomplete by the treaty of Prairie du Chien, in consequence of the non-attendance of some of the principal
Menomonee Chiefs.

ARTICLE 3.

The Chippewa tribe grant to the government of the United States the right to search for, and carry away, any metals
or minerals from any part of their country. But this grant is not to affect the title of the land, nor the existing
jurisdiction over it.

ARTICLE 4.

It being deemed important that the half-breeds, scattered through this extensive country, should be stimulated to
exertion and improvement by the possession of permanent property and fixed residences, the Chippewa tribe, in
consideration of the affection they bear to these persons, and of the interest which they feel in their welfare, grant to
each of the persons described in the schedule hereunto annexed, being half-breeds and Chippewas by descent, and it
being understood that the schedule includes all of this description who are attached to the Government of the United
States, six hundred and forty acres of land, to be located, under the direction of the President of the United States,
upon the islands and shore of the St. Mary’s river, wherever good land enough for this purpose can be found; and as
soon as such locations are made, the jurisdiction and soil thereof are hereby ceded. It is the intention of the parties,
that, where circumstances will permit, the grants be surveyed in the ancient French manner, bounding not less than
six arpens, nor more than ten, upon the river, and running back for quantity; and that where this cannot be done,
such grants be surveyed in any manner the President may direct. The locations for Oshauguscoday wayqua and her
descendents shall be adjoining the lower part of the military reservation, and upon the head of Sugar Island. The
persons to whom grants are made shall not have the privilege of conveying the same, without the permission of the
President.

[*270]

ARTICLE 5.
In consideration of the poverty of the Chippewas, and of the sterile nature of the country they inhabit, unfit for
cultivation, and almost destitute of game, and as a proof of regard on the part of the United States, it is agreed that
an annuity of two thousand dollars, in money or goods, as the President may direct, shall be paid to the tribe, at the
Sault St. Marie. But this annuity shall continue only during the pleasure of the Congress of the United States.

ARTICLE 6.

With a view to the improvement of the Indian youths, it is also agreed, that an annual sum of one thousand dollars
shall be appropriated to the support of an establishment for their education, to be located upon some part of the St.
Mary’s river, and the money to be expended under the direction of the President; and for the accommodation of such
school, a section of land is hereby granted. But the payment of the one thousand dollars stipulated for in this article,
is subject to the same limitation described in the preceding article.

ARTICLE 7.

The necessity for the stipulations in the fourth, fifth and sixth articles of this treaty could be fully apparent, only
from personal observation of the condition, prospects, and wishes of the Chippewas, and the Commissioners were
therefore not specifically instructed upon the subjects therein referred to; but seeing the extreme poverty of these
wretched people, finding them almost naked and starving, and ascertaining that many perished during the last
winter, from hunger and cold, they were induced to insert these articles. But it is expressly understood and agreed,
that the fourth, fifth and sixth articles, or either of them, may be rejected by the President and Senate, without
affecting the validity of the other articles of the treaty.

ARTICLE 8.

The Chippewa tribe of Indians fully acknowledge the authority and jurisdiction of the United States, and disclaim all
connection with any foreign power, solemnly promising to reject any messages, speeches, or councils, incompatible
with the interest of the United States, and to communicate information thereof to the proper agent, should any such
be delivered or sent to them.

ARTICLE 9.

This treaty, after the same shall be ratified by the President and Senate of the United States, shall be obligatory on
the contracting parties.
Done at the Fond du Lac of lake Superior, in the territory of Michigan, the day and year above written, and of the
independence of the United States the fifty-first.

SUPPLEMENTARY ARTICLE.

As the Chippewas who committed the murder upon four American citizens, in June, 1824, upon the shores of Lake
Pepin, are not present at this council, but are far in the interior of the country, so that they cannot be apprehended
and delivered to the proper authority before the commencement of the next Summer; and, as the Commissioners
have been specially instructed to demand the surrender of these persons, and to state to the Chippewa tribe the
consequence of suffering such a flagitious outrage to go unpunished, it is agreed, that the persons guilty of the
beforementioned murder shall be brought in, either to the Sault St. Marie, or Green Bay, as early next summer as
practicable, and surrendered to the proper authority; and that, in the mean time, all further measures on the part of
the United States, in relation to this subject, shall be suspended.
Lewis Cass,
Thomas L. McKenney.

                     credits: submitted by Timm Severud (Ondamitag)

                    Famous historical characters were among Reverend Philip Gordon's ancestors. In 1636, John Dingley
                    migrated from England to Massachusetts. His daughter, Mary, married a son of Miles Standish. Seven
                    Generations later, Daniel Dingley married Isabella La Prairie (Musk-ko-dence) who was half French and
                    half Chippewa Indian. Isabella was the daughter of a clerk for the Northwestern Fur Company mentioned in
                    Curot's Journal for 1803-4.

                    Sarah, one of Daniel and Isabella's five children, became Philip's grandmother. Sarah was born in 1827 at
                    Cadot's trading post at the mouth of the Yellow River in what is now Burnett County, Wisconsin.

                    When Sarah was a young girl the family prepared for a long journey to a new home in St. Joseph, Michigan,
                    on the east shore of Lake Michigan. They were careful in the construction of a canoe for the journey. It must
                    have be light as possible because there would be many portages where Sarah's father would carry the canoe
                    over paths through forests abounding in pine, spruce, fir and birch. Isabella would pack a few belongings on
                    her back.
Game, fish and berries were plentiful; available for the taking so there would be no need to carry many
provisions, so there would be no need to carry many provisions. They would take some wild rice from the
previous year's crop and a supply of furs for trade at posts along the way. Mink was plentiful and cheap but
Dingley had other furs - muskrat, beaver, otter, but especially fox which was the most valuable at the time.

Dingley was fortunate in being in an area where birch was readily available. It was the most satisfactory
material for a canoe, being light and pliable. A completed craft was easily carried by one man.

It was necessary to cut down the tree to obtain the thick sheets of bark for a canoe. When the family made
their preparations, it was spring and the bark was at its best for canoe building.

Daniel was experienced in canoe construction. He had prepared material in advance. Several days before, he
had split cedar trees and these were soaking so they would be ready for the framework when needed. He
began making the canoe by laying out the birchbark sheets. He placed a wooden frame on them and held
them down with stones. Then he bent up the edges and drove posts into ground around the outside to hold
sides in place.

When he put in the cedar gunwales, Isabella made holes around the edge with an awl made of quartz and
then sewed them in place with strings she prepared from spruce roots. Ribs were fashioned from the cedar
they had soaking. Daniel then inserted braces, known as thwarts, to rigidly hold the sides in place.

While they worked, spruce gum was being heated. They used this to seal the seams and make them
watertight. They would take along a good supply of spruce gum to make repairs along the way. In an
emergency, the gum could be chewed to soften it instead of being heated.

Now they had a craft like that of which Hiawatha said, "I, a light canoe will build me… that shall float upon
the river, like a yellow leaf of autumn, like a yellow water lily!'

The family traveled much of the summer to reach their new home. The rivers, which were rushing torrents
when they began their journey, gradually slowed to a calm rhythm as summer advanced.

When the Dingley's reached St. Joseph; Daniel opened a large trading post. It was Father Gordon later
described in some handwritten notes as a "religious arrival (or revival)" - even after being highly educated,
Father Gordon was noted for his poor penmanship - Daniel Dingley and his partner, "with a written form of
self-dedication to God, brought the Indian women with whom they had been living according to Indian
custom, and were legally married" in 1829.

One day Daniel Dingley packed a deerskin pouch with some wild rice, loaded his powder horn and shot
pouch, shouldered his rifle and stared out on a hunting expedition. He was never heard from again.

The family stayed at St. Joseph for a time, then moved to La Pointe on Madeline Island in Chequamegon
Bay on Lake Superior.

Sarah experienced the ceremonial fast and isolation as every Indian girl did when she reached the age of
sexual eligibility and adult importance according to her Indian Mother's tradition. She had learned her many
skills from her mother. She learned to weave, tan hides, make articles of birchbark, and how to gather and
prepare wild foods.

Sarah was a dark-eyed sixteen-year-old when she met the enterprising French and Indian fur trader, Antoine
Gaudin. Sarah was well prepared for her marriage to Antoine.

Antoine's father, Jean Baptiste Gaudin, who was Philip's great-grandfather, was a Frenchman who was born
at Trois Rivieres in the Province of Quebec. He was employed as a voyageur from La Pointe. He roamed the
forests as far west as Mille Lacs in what is now Minnesota. While there he married A-we-ni-shan (Young
Beaver) a sister of Hole-in-the-Day, The Elder. This was the beginning of Philip Gordon's Indian heritage.
A-we-ni-shan's nephew, Hole-in-the-Day, the Younger, (Pug-o-ne-gi-jik), became a noted figure in
Minnesota History. He was the acting head chief while Buffalo was hereditary chief of the Chippewa or
Ojibway tribe.

When Antoine was twelve years, old he went to Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, with his family. A few years
later they returned to La Pointe where the American Fur Company had its headquarters under Michel Cadot,
the "Great Michel" as the Indians called him. Michel fraternized with the Indians and married Equaysayway,
the daughter of Chief White Crane; but like the other traders, he exploited the Indians, buying the raw furs at
ridiculously low prices. Michel Cadot did business of about $40,000 annually.

Antoine married Sarah Dingley and in 1845 he opened a trading post and remained at La Pointe for ten
years. Besides the post, he acquired an interest with Vincent Roy of Superior in the schooner Algonquin.
The ship had been built in 1839 at Black River, Ohio; now know as Lorain, for the Ohio Fishing and Mining
Company. In 1845 it had been portaged around the Soo Rapids by use of timbers and rollers, block and
tackle and ox team.

Although there had been other sailing vessels on Lake Superior before the Algonquin, she was the first of
importance to carry cargo on the lake. Gaudin hauled logs from the Bad River area and returned with lumber
and supplies for his trading post at La Pointe.

Antoine moved his family to a farm near the present site of Washburn in 1855 when William, who would
become Philip's father, was only five years old. He eventually sold his interest in the Algonquin and in 1860,
he lead a group of French and Indians in two long, slim birchbark canoes down the St. Croix River.

The St. Croix and its tributaries had long been a trade route and warpath of the Chippewa and Sioux tribes.
The last great battle between the two rivals was fought on the St. Croix. The river ran red with Sioux blood
when the Chippewa Chief Buffalo and his warriors, although fewer in number, outwitted and defeated the
Sioux.

Gaudin proceeded to St. Croix near the mouth of the Snake River, taking a stock of trade goods for trade
with the Indians. Cadot had a post there as well as at Yellow River and Pokegema Lake to the west. (You
will remember the Yellow River post was the birthplace of Sarah, grandmother of Father Gordon.)

Although the population in the southern part of the state was growing at a rapid rate, northwestern
Wisconsin was still an untamed wilderness, covered by seemingly inexhaustible pine forests. The pines
thrived on light, sandy soil deposited in the St. Croix Valley by glaciers. There were less than six people per
square mile.

Lumberman looked longingly at the vast north woods but transportation of timber was impossible. The
Indians had lived here for centuries, sustained by the resources of forest, lakes and streams. They lived in
harmony with Nature, or existed at its mercy, taking of its abundance only what they needed for their
survival. If they exhausted the resources of one area they had but to move on to better hunting grounds and
the area they left would soon replenish.

When the lumbermen penetrated the densely forested area they found that white pine was the most prized for
lumber. It was easy to work with and was light and easily transported. Before the coming of the railroad all
the logs were floated down the rivers. Pine would float, whereas hardwoods sank to the bottom.

Historians referred to the area as the Folle Avoine Sauteur (literally, Wild Oats Jumping). The wild oats was
actually wild rice, not a grain at all but a type of grass, which grew profusely in the shallows along the
rivers. The Indians said wild rice must grow with its feet in the water and its head dry.

Gaudin later planted rice for the Indians at Mulligan Lake, and he is known as the first conservationist. His
descendants have harvested wild rice ever since; more than five thousand pounds a year have been taken
from this lake. Some of his plantings can still be seen.

Antoine stayed for a while at Lost Post: but with the lumber business in mind, in 1862 he landed at the
junction of the Eau Claire and St. Croix Rivers at a place the Indians called Amick (the Beaver). He sold his
interests at La Pointe and purchased 40 acres of land from the Wisconsin Land and Improvement Company
and Henry Rice Land Company.

The log building Gaudin erected on the Eau Claire River was his home and trading store and became a
boarding house for travelers as well. Winters were severe and often a time of want and privation with below-
zero temperatures and deep snow. Gaudin gave shelter to Indians who were in need. He became their
counselor and spokesman and acted as mediator between the wandering bands.

Some of the trade goods for the store were hauled from St. Paul by ox team or horses, pumping along the
stage route over stumps and ruts. The stage line had been established in 1860 through the wilderness by
widening the old foot trails.

The alternate route was up the Brule from La Pointe, navigating the canoes for about thirty-five miles, then
carrying them over the Brule-St. Croix Portage, a distance of two miles over a pine ridge.

During their long absences, the missionaries urged the people to build a chapel or church where they could
meet Anton Gordon, familiarly known as Tony, paid most of the expenses in the construction of a little log
church in Gordon in 1874.

Recognizing the need of education for the children, he erected a log building in 1883, across from the
trading post and next to the church. Here he taught both white and Indian children to read and write during
the week and provided religious instruction on Sunday. Gordon had only three months of formal education,
but he believed in education and learned to speak English, French, and Chippewa. He also read Latin and
understood the Sioux tongue.

Gordon's contact with the brown-robed Franciscans was largely responsible for his education. When he was
a young man in La Pointe he had been choirmaster and interpreter for Bishop Baraga, the famous
missionary. The Bishop had written a grammar and dictionary of the Chippewa language.

It was only through the influence of his Indian mother that Anton did not pursue his aspiration to become a
priest, a dream fulfilled many years later by his grandson, Philip.

Before his death in 1907, Tony Gordon had served three years as the first postmaster of Gordon; he was the
town supervisor for six years and school treasurer for ten years. He was healthy and alert in his old age and
operated the store until 1905.

Tony Gordon hired George Stuntz, who surveyed much of the territory, to lay out a town. When the
Northern Wisconsin Railway was built in 1862, Gordon deeded the right-of-way and a depot was built.
Around the turn of the century a village was established and named for its first settler, Tony Gordon. His
wife, Sarah, was often called upon to act as midwife and on some occasions she was transported by handcar
on the Northwestern Railway.

This was the place to which William Gordon had come as a child with parents, and where he married his
Indian wife and fourteen children were born to them. Among them were seven sons, of whom Philip was the
youngest. This was the village where began the life which was to take him far from his wilderness home. He
became the friend of the great and famous in all walks of life - statesmen, cardinals, soldiers, scientists,
businessmen, and people of all nations.

Philip's Indian name, "Ti-bish-ko-gi-jik," meaning "Looking into the Sky" was prophetic of his life's calling
as a "Sky Pilot." Did he plan his career as a young boy? Catherine Gordon McDonald tells this story:

"My dad was Father Gordon's brother, Joe. They lived out in the country and they went into town one day.
Phil was supposed to watch the younger children. When his parents came home, some of the children were
crying. Phil had taken the curtains off the windows and made himself a priest's robes. The children said, 'Ma,
Phil made us pray all day.'"

    Made available to The USGenWeb Archives by: Carol C. Eddleman
                             <deddle@ix.netcom.com>

    I have an old, yellow copy of a small newspaper-sized edition of "the
    Souvenir Edition of Chengwatana Chronical, Pine County, Minnesota--an
    updated chronical of news and history of events as they actually happened
    and how they may have been written. Price 35 c." I don't know what the
    publication date is. I know that it is sometime after 1969, as there is
    something quoted within dated 1969.
       The Editors article says, in part: "This newspaper is dedicated to all
    the hardy people of Pine County, Minnesota who through hard work, courage,
    and vision "created" this land of opportunity. By trial and sometimes
    error, as with all human beings, this region was brought through the various
    milestones of our history. With a little tongue in cheek we have attempted
    to recreate these happenings and events and, in this way, make them come
    alive to you..."
    The Editors
      Ron Nelson, Chairman of the Pine County historical Society
      Kon Bergum, Pine Soil Conservation District
      In cooperation with the Pine County Historical Society, Pine County
       Tourist Committee, Pine County Soil and Water Conservation District, and
    Pine County Extension Office.

    Here are some of the older entries...remember, these are "recreated"
    accounts...

    "KATE R" LAUNCHED June 1881 (page 3)

      The 125 foot stern-wheeled excursion boat "Kate R" owned by Mr. Richard
    Robinson and named for his wife was launched today from Pine City. Elijah
    Seavey from the Village has been named captain of the 80 passenger craft.
    Mr. Robinson, in selecting "Cap" Seavey as the boat's pilot, chose a man
    with a vast amount of sailing experience on the St. Croix and Snake Rivers
    and Pokegama and Cross Lakes. The "Kate R" will make regular trips stopping
    at various locations including the Tuxedo Inn, the finest resort on Lake
    Pokegama.


    CHENGWATANA NAMED COUNTY SEAT March 1, 1850 (page one)

      With very informal ceremony, the village of Chengwatana officially was
    named the County Seat of Pine County. Presently, Chengwatana has 92 hardy
    souls who are striving to make their town a decent place to live. The
    village, located at the Snake River outlet of Cross Lake, has been a village
    site for many years and is located on a modern United States Government
    Military Road.

    UNION JACK RAISED OVER CONNOR'S TRADING POST (headline page one)
                     Tom Conner announced the ground breaking October 12, 1804 of his new fur
                   trading post on the Snake River. He reports the supplies of furs are very
                   good. The Union Jack is flying as evidence that Mr. Conner is doing
                   business with one of the best fur companies. The highest prices are paid
                   by his firm, the Northwest Company.
                     The most modern fur trading facilities available in the Northwest are
                   here. This includes sleek canoes and fast transportation and communications
                   with the outside world on the tremendous river system via the Snake, St.
                   Croix and Brule River.
                     Connor (sic)reports that Europe is crying for our furs.
