EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
The Adventures of Marquette
Even then Marquette had no conception of the true grandeur of that valley he had entered, extending from the Allegheny ridges to the Rocky Mountains. Still, when the tidings of his wonderful discoveries reached Quebec, the exciting intelligence was received with the ringing of bells, with salvos of artillery, and most preeminent and important of all, by nearly the whole population, led by the clergy and other dignitaries of the place, going in procession to the cathedral where the Te Deum was sung in thanksgiving to God.
In Marquette's account of this voyage he writes, "Nowhere did we see such grounds, meadows, woods, stags, buffaloes, deer, wild cats, bustards, swans, ducks, parquets´ and even beavers, as on the Illinois River.
By the earnest request of the Illinois Indians, Marquette returned to them and continued with them, revered and beloved, preaching the gospel for two years. On the 18th of May, 1675, as he was ascending Lake Michigan, with his boatmen, he proposed landing at the mouth of a small stream, for the celebration of mass. He left his men in the canoe while he went a short distance into the solitude of the forest to pray. As some time passed and he did not return, they called to mind that he had said, before he left them, that he felt that the hour of his death was at hand. They went to seek him. He was lying upon a green mound dead, with his hands folded as in prayer. The boatmen silently and sadly dug his grave, and left his mortal remains in the solitude of the forest on the banks of the stream which now bears the name of Marquette.
