A master carpenter, Nicolas was born about 1628 in the parish of Saint-Germain in Auxerre, Burgundy, the son of Laurent Huot and Aimée Beauvilain. When he was baptized he was considered an illegitimate child.
He is listed in the Beaupre 1666 census as being 38 and a "huissier audiencier Beaupre". This is a "crier of the court, gentleman-usher, sheriff's officer, bailiff etc." His wife Marie Fayet was 21 and they had two children at that time. Their ages differ in the 1667 census, where they can be found at the Beaupre coast, while still living at Chateau Richer and the 1681 LaPocatiere census.
In 1667 Nicolas took four women (one was Merie Trotin) to court for assault and battery against him. They were found guilty of spanking him and had to make a public apology on the steps of the Chateau Richer church. In addition they had to pay an "offering" to the shrine of Sainte Anne de Beaupre.

Notes for Joseph Pelletier:
His son Andre was married at Fort Vincennes, Indiana in 1773. To understand just what this Frenchman was doing in Indiana here is a bit of history.

---------------The French in Indiana:
In the early 1500s a French explorer, Jacques Cartier, discovered the St. Lawrence River. Because he was the first to discover the area around the St. Lawrence River, Cartier claimed all of the land for France. The French government named this new land New France.
In 1603 Samuel de Champlain arrived to govern this new territory and founded the city of Québec. He also spent a large amount of his time exploring the land around the St. Lawrence River. Champlain encouraged the French already in New France to learn Indian languages and to live in the forests. These Frenchman became known as Voyagers. Many of them lived among the Indian tribes.
Catholic priests also came to New France. They work on behalf of the Catholic church to teach their religion to the Indians. Often priests and French Voyagers traveled together.

---------------Robert Cavalier Sieur de La Salle:
La Salle sailed to New France in 1666. Once in North America he started to learn the ways of the local Indians. His main desire was not to stay and settle in New France but to travel and explore the western regions and claim any new lands he found for France.
In 1669 La Salle started to explore the areas around the Great Lakes. He traveled south of Lake Erie until he found the Ohio River. La Salle named the river "Ohio" after the Iroquois word for "beautiful water."
La Salle set out to explore more territory in 1679. His main purpose in undertaking this journey was to set up frontier trading posts. His first goal was to have a ship built. When the ship was completed (named the Griffon) La Salle and his party sailed as far as Green Bay on Lake Michigan. After departing from the Griffon, La Salle's party used canoes to explore the southern shores of Lake Michigan. They eventually found the mouth of the St. Joseph River, which emptied into Lake Michigan. La Salle made camp waiting on the Griffon to return with more supplies not knowing it had sunk.
Not wanting to spend the winter at the mouth of the St. Joseph River, La Salle and his men paddled up the river in 8 canoes. In December of 1679, they camped along the St. Joseph River's south bend. This place later became the city of South Bend. Robert La Salle was the first white man to visit Indiana.
La Salle went on to travel from the St. Joseph River down the Kankakee and eventually out into the Mississippi River. He claimed all of the land around the Mississippi and its tributaries for France. La Salle named this new land Louisiana after the French king Louis. Indiana was part of this new land named Louisiana.

---------------French Fur Trading and Forts in Indiana:
After the death of La Salle many Europeans, especially of French descent, came into the new area La Salle had claimed for France. His wish of having trading posts set up in this new land became a reality. Trading posts and forts began to be founded throughout Indiana.
The first fort thought to be established in Indiana was named Fort Miami. It was built around 1715 on the Maumee River portage. The portage that Ft. Miami was located on was a path that connected the Maumee and Wabash Rivers. The city of Fort Wayne is located there now. Within Ft. Miami log homes were constructed that housed the families of the soldiers and traders that lived and worked at the fort.
Another fort was constructed in Indiana around 1720. It was built where the Tippecanoe River flows into the Wabash River. This fort was named Fort Ouiatenon. It was located in present day West Lafayette.
In 1732 a very large fort was constructed at a French village on the Wabash River in the southern part of Indiana. The fort was named Fort Vincennes after the French officer in command.
A church was soon built in Vincennes around 1708 and French settlers had cleared land for orchards and gardens. Settlers built log cabins and settled into 'city' life. Vincennes had an early population of 300 people which made it the largest French town in Indiana. It is also the oldest settled town in Indiana.
---------------
Fort Vincennes, later known as St. Vinennes and eventually Vincennes, Indiana, was established in 1732. It was renamed Fort Sackville after being captured by the British. George Rogers Clark renamed it Fort Patrick Henry, for the Governor of Virginia. Although part of the original expansive Illinois Country, as part of the Northwest Territory it was the seat of a separate county.
---------------
FORT VINCENNES, on the Wabash, is a work erected during the year 1787, and has four small brass cannon. It is garrisoned by a major and two companies. It is established to curb the incursions of the Wabash Indians into Kentucky county, and to prevent the usurpation of the Federal lands, the fertility of which has been too strong a temptation to the lawless people of the frontiers, who posted themselves there, in the year 1786. Brigadier General Harmar, by order of Congress, formed an expedition in August, 1787, for the purpose of dispossessing them, but previous to his arrival, most of the intruders had abandoned their settlements."
------------------------
The recorded history of Indiana begins with French Jesuits and trappers in the 17th century. Moving westward from the Saint Lawrence valley, the French hoped to establish a profitable fur trade and to convert the Indians to Christianity. Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, was the first European to explore the land that is now Indiana. He and his party reached the south bend of the Saint Joseph River (now the city of South Bend) in 1679 and portaged to the Kankakee River on their journey from the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River. The Wabash-Maumee River route, which used a portage near the present location of Fort Wayne, was the shortest route between Lake Erie and the Mississippi River and became a primary artery for French influence and trade. To protect their trading interests against English competition and English settlers, the French built several forts along this route in the early 18th century: Fort Miami (now Fort Wayne), Fort Ouiatenon or Ouiatanon (near Lafayette) and Fort Vincennes (Vincennes). Fort Miami and Fort Ouiatenon took their names from the Indian tribes that lived in the vicinity of each site. Long the headquarters of the Miami Indians, the site of modern Fort Wayne was Known at different times as Kekionga, Kiskakon, Omee Town, Twightee Village, Frenchtown, or Miami Town. The name Fort Wayne honors General Anthony Wayne who defeated the Miami Indian Confederacy at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794. The city of Lafayette was so named in 1824 by its founder, William Digby, for the Marquis de Lafayette. His son Andre was married at Fort Vincennes, Indiana in 1773. To understand just what this Frenchman was doing in Indiana here is a bit of history.

My resources are limited because I live in Oregon. I hope that you use this information only as a guide. I welcome corrections and additions from anyone that has access to the original files.

Originally I paid a genealogy society to trace the direct lines for 6 of my 8 great grandparents. They used the books that were compiled by volunteers for each parish. Because so many individuals had the same name, I eventually found some errors in these books. Then I used Tanguay and found out that he may be about 75% right and Jette (that goes to 1730) is about 90% right. Then just as I thought that I was finished, I found PRDH (University of Montreal) and I believe that they may be 98% right and still make corrections to their records. They go up to 1799 for marriage contracts and 1850 for some deaths. Some people have the luxury of having the original records at their disposal. I do not have that and with 17,000 individuals in my data base, I can not afford to pay for copies of all the originals. At that point I confirmed every that I had with the records at PRDH. Whenever I say “about” for a birth date it means that PRDH did not find it or if it is in the 1800s, I did not look it up because of my lack of resources.

PRDH uses the most common spelling variation for the names. This makes it easier to trace the families. They do not always use the original name that appears on the contracts or birth records. That is ok with me, because many individuals before the 1900s could not sign their names and did not even care how others spelt it. As a result the same person’s name took on a variety of spellings. I also kept the “dit” (aka) names because eventually brothers from the same family, picked a different aka name.

As for the pioneers, I also used Peter Gagné’s English books on the single girls that arrived in New France between 1634 & 1662 and his book on the single girls that are referred to as the King’s Daughters that arrived between 1663 & 1673. These girls were recruited and paid by the King to go to New France (Québec) to get married and colonize the area.

Most of my information for the 1800-1900s comes from people on the web. The program that I use does not allow for baptismal dates, so if I don’t have a birth date, I use the baptismal date. The same goes for death vs. burial dates and actual wedding vs. contract dates. The newer programs have these features, but I will not be going through 18,000 records to make the changes.

It is like I said in the beginning; use this information as a guide only. I view genealogy as a hobby and not as pure science.

As for the stories, I got them all in French on the web and I translated them for my grandchildren. I had not read or spoken French in over 40 years, so it was difficult and may not be the best translation.

Enjoy, Janet
