EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
The Adventures of Marquette
Here, at the distance of more than a thousand miles from the least vestiges of civilization, and surrounded by numerous and powerful bands of savages, these hardy men passed an inclement winter. Amidst rocks and gloomy pines they reared their hut. Game was abundant, fuel was at their door, the Indians were hospitable, and they wanted for nothing. One event only darkened these wintry months. The leader of the band became lost in the woods and perished.
In the spring the men returned rejoicing to Canada, with their canoes laden with the richest furs. They also brought such reports of the docility and amiability of the Indians as to inspire the Christians in Canada with the intense desire to establish missionary stations among them. Five years passed away, when Father Claude Allouez, with a small band of Christian heroes, penetrated these wilds to proclaim the glad tidings of the gospel. Two years after, he was followed by Father James Marquette, a noble man, whose name will never die.
Marquette established a mission about forty miles below the Falls of St. Mary, at a point on the main land, which he named St. Ignatius, just north of the Island of Mackinaw. Here he gathered a little band of loving disciples. His gentle and devoted spirit won, not merely the friendship of the Indians, but their ardent affections. He was just as safe among them as the most beloved father surrounded by his children. Three years this good man remained in these lonely wilds, peacefully and successfully teaching these benighted children of the forest salvation through an atoning Savior. During all this time his mind had been much exercised with the thought of exploring the limitless and unknown regions south and west.
He had heard of the Mississippi, the Father of Waters, and his devout mind peopled the vast realms through which it flowed with the lost children of God, whom he perhaps might reclaim through the gospel of Jesus, who had come from heaven for their redemption. The Governor of Canada was desirous, for more worldly reasons, of exploring the limitless and unknown regions south and west.
He had heard rumors of the Mississippi, the Fater of Waters, and his devout mind peopled the vast realms through which it flowed with the lost children of God, whom he perhaps might reclaim through the gospel of Jesus, who had come from heaven for their redemption. The Governor of Canada was desirous, for more worldly reasons, of exploring these regions, where future empires might be reared.
In the spring of 1673 the Governor of Canada sent M. Joliet, a gentleman of Quebec, with five boatmen, to Point St. Ignatius, to take Marquette and set out in search of the much-talked-of-river.
