The following voyagers are recorded at Michilimackinac, New France (Michigan), this year in the birth, death and marriage records: Joseph Des Caris, Thomas Blondeau, Jacques Farly, Jean Baptiste, (II)-Charles Chaboyer (Chaboillez) (1706-1757), Saint Germain and a (III)-Jean DuLignon (d-1762) who married Marie Josephte Angelique Lemaire,(1717-1748), (Savage). They are living at Sault Ste Marie, New France (Michigan/Ontario).

(I)-James Isham d-1761, a clerk writer and a bigamist of the Hudson Bay at York Factory, (Manitoba) called the Lake Superior Ojibwa who came to trade, the Nakawawuck Indians who border by the Little Sea (Lake Superior). The Indians named the Little Sea due to it's location next to the French settlement. Isham also wrote that what was of most concern to him was to see themselves sit quietly and unconcerned, while the French, as in an old saying, not only beat the bush but run away with the hair also. The Plains Cree had introduced them to the Earchethinues or Archithinues (Blackfoot), and he wanted to send two men to encourage them to come and trade. (I)-James Isham, d-1761, clerk writer of H.B.C., however, recorded 250 canoes arrived with 550 men to trade.

At Pierre, South Dakota, in the territory of the Little Cherry Indians, Louy La Londette (Laudette) and A. Miotte, on March 30, buried a plate claiming the Territory for France. This is placed for the Chevalier de la Verendrye. The plate is discovered February, 1913.

(III)-Pierre Gautier la Verendrye returned to the Dakota Territories and visited the Black Hills, observing that a well-established fur trading network is in place. This cannot be true as (II)-Pierre Gauthier de Varennes et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) is forced to resign this year. It is likely one of his sons.

(III)-Pierre Gautier la Verendry Monsieur de St. Pierre established Fort Kaminnistikwigaw on the site of Fort Paskoyac, established in 1748.

Joseph La Violette is in charge of two canoes and 12 men for Pierre Gaultier de Varennes de Verendrye.

The English North West Committee, headed by Arthur Dobbs, an Irish M.P., begun a legal attack in London on the territorial claims of the Hudson Bay Company. The Hudson Bay Company reported: If a Cree woman commits adultery without the knowledge and permission of the husband, he makes no scruple of turning her off and very often knocks out her brains with a hatchet. They frequently lend their wives to other men for a night, week, month or even a year, and will sometimes make an exchange for several years. Afterwards the women return to their former husbands, taking with them all the children that have been born to them by the other man. This could be a fabricated story to justify the abuse of Indian women by the English. Some would say the English however would learn the hard way that wives can be lent but not borrowed.

The Albany Post, James Bay is reduced to less than 15 men.

Fort Dauphin, alias Fort Lac Des Prairies on Lake Winnipeg, (Manitoba) is rebuilt- having been recently destroyed.
