Generation No. 1

 

1.  STANISLAUS1 CHAPPUE1 was born Abt. 1766 in L'Assumption, Quebec, and died 06 May 1854 near the Menominee River, Oconto, Wisconsin, USA2.  He married  Ke No Ny Ka THERESA THRASH Abt. 1840 in Marinette, Wisconsin, USA, daughter of UNKNOWN THRASH and UNKNOWN woman of the Menominee Tribe. She was born Abt. 1821 in Wisconsin, USA3, and died 01 Jun 1886 in Peshtigo, Marinette, Wisconsin, USA4.

 

Notes for STANISLAUS CHAPPUE:

 

A Brief History of Marinette, Excerpts from a 1990 study of the Surviving Architecture of a Menominee River Boom Town, © 1990, 1996, City of Marinette, Wisconsin:  The first known white settler on the Menominee River was Stanislaus Chappu, or Chappee, a French-Canadian fur trader who operated a log trading post at the site of Marinette between 1794 and 1824. Another fur trader, William Farnsworth, arrived at the Menominee River Basin in 1822. Two years later he usurped Chappee's position as the area's fur trader as he forcibly ejected Chappee from his trading post with the help of nearby Chippewa Indians.

 

The Wisconsin Creoles, page 222:  The Chappue Family:  Stanislaus Chappue (b. 1766 at L'assumption, Quebec d. 1854) was described as a big, brave man who came to the Menominee River as a trader in 1796. During the 1798-1804 time period, he clerked for Laframbois and Mirandeau in Milwaukee, By 1813, he was a clerk for John Lawe and being at Mackinac in 1814, he assisted in its defense. He was also there in 1816, when he guided one of the American troopships to Green Bay. He was naturalized in 1820. He remained in Lawe's employe for many years on the Menominee River, where he also had a farm. When an Indian bit off his thumb in 1823, the court decided that they had no jurisdiction over Indians in Indian territory. His wife was Ke No Ny Ka.   Their children were:   Jacques; Pauline (who married John Place in 1860 at Peshtigo); Louis; John (b. 1841 and lived at Duck Creek with his wife, Chele born 1848) and Therese (b. 1845 d. 1890). Mo Now Way Noc married Darwin McPherson).  The last three children (Louis, John and Therese) received Menominee mixed-blood payments. Jacques Chapeau received $600 for his three children at Milwaukee under the 1833 Indian Treaty.

 

Page 161:  An example of these payments (of various treaties) can be found in the 1833 Treaty at Chicago, where the Chippewa, Ottawa, and Pottawatomi signed over all of Southeast Wisconsin. A sum of $100,000 was provided in the treaty to pay off individuals with claims against the tribes; many Creole (Meti) names appear among these claimants, e.g., Laframboise, Miranda, Chevalier, Bourassa, Chappue, Beaubien, Juneau, Rabbie, Viewu, Grignon, Lawe, Thibeau, Porlier and Provencal.

 

Marinette and Menominee, Illustrated and Described, published 1887, page 4:

     Somewhere about the year 1796 Louis Chappieu, an Indian trader, came to Menominee and established a post on the Wisconsin side of the river where the office of the Menominee River Manufacturing Company now stands just opposite (Queen) Marinette's house. That point on the river looking from the railroad bridge which crosses the river a short distance below. Chappieu, as stated in other sketches, was an agent of the 'American Fur Company' but this could not have been true, though he was a trader, and doubtless came here as an agent to traffic with the Indians and it is probable that he was an agent of the "British American Fur Company", which at that time was operating here. He was a bold powerful man and many instances of his nerve and prowess are related. He carried on a successful business for many years but was finally forced to remove by William Farnsworth who came here in 1823. He afterwards crossed the river and built a new trading post near the foot of Chappieu's Rapids about five miles up the river where he remained until his death in 1852. He was eighty years old or upwards at the time of his death. The name is pronounced "Shappee."

 

Green Bay Advocate, Thursday Vol. 8, No. 34, P. 3, Col. 2, 25 May 1854: Death Of An Old Pioneer.   We take the liberty of taking the following extracts from a letter written by Mr. John O. Kittson communicating the intelligence of the death of one of the oldest inhabitants and traders of this whole region:"I have to inform you of the departure of another of the old pioneers of the west, Mr. Staneslaus Shappee, who died on the 6th of May, 1854, at his residence on the Menominee River, at the advanced age of eighty-eight years and four months.  The deceased was well known to all the old settlers of this entire western world.  He lived a strange life in the bosom of primeval forests, and saw strange and startling changes in his time.  

     He was a native of the parish of L’Assumption, Canada East, and came to Green Bay when he was only seventeen and consequently has resided here about seventy-one years.  During the greatest part of his life, he was in the employ of the American Fur Company as a trader and traveler and had roamed the broad country between the lakes and the Rocky Mountains.  He was respected and highly esteemed by all who knew him, and his loss is deeply mourned by all his relatives and friends."

     It is a singular fact, which has often been observed that nearly every one of the hardy hunters and trappers, those adventureous and light-hearted--courrires de bois--who came here at an early day, and finally made it their permanent abode, attained to a hale, hearty healthy, enjoyable, serene old age--some of them standing erect over the weight of more than a hundred years--so favorable to longevity has our climate proved to be.

 

Marinette County, Wisconsin, Centennial page on website:  John Place (Chappu's son-in-law) worked as a sawyer, but also farmed 46 acres.

 

(Marinette County Centennial 1879-1979, p. 7)

 

     Agriculture, as we think of it today, began in the county with John Kittson, the fourth white man to locate on the Menominee River. He arrived on August 23, 1830, as the representative of the American Fur Company. Kittson was the son of a British Army officer who had immigrated to Canada and settled near Montreal. He was able to assist the Menominee with the communications to the USA government, and was affectionately known by them as "The Writer." He is described as extremely intelligent, with the temperament and strength to adapt well to pioneer life.

     Kittson soon began operating a farm on the Menominee River, just above the trading post of STANISLAUS CHAPPU, the first known white settler in this area. Here Kittson taught the Menominee improved ways of farming, and ran a very hospitable house and table. He established an Indian cemetery on part of his farm, and his friend, CHAPPU is buried there.

     Kittson's second, and larger, farm was located at the Ox-bow of the Menominee River, at the Wausaukee flats area, opposite the mouth of the Wausaukee River. He also operated a trading post here to serve the Indian settlement. He built a large, two-story log house, and a huge two-story log barn which contained accommodations for horses at one end and cows at the other, with a threshing floor in the center; a haymow on the second floor covered the entire area. About a quarter of a mile downriver from his farm house, Kittson built a pelt storage house, octagonal in shape, also two-story log-hewed, over a large basement, the walls of which were lined with logs. The roof was covered with blue clay from the river. The hot summer sun dried the clay, and it became impregnable to water and the heat of the sun. The pelts were stored in the basement and first floor; the second floor was filled with ice in the late winter and early spring, to preserve the pelts in good condition until they could be taken down to the American Fur Company office at Green Bay, after the ice melted on the Menominee River.

     As agent for the American Fur Company, Kittson established several satellite trading posts, the largest of which were at White Rapids and on the Pike River.

     In the 1860s, with the decline of the fur trade, Kittson returned to live at the smaller farm at Chappee Rapids, where he died early in 1872. His death is attributed to exhaustion and exposure while fighting the Peshtigo Fire of October 8, 1871. In 1881, his wife, Margaret, and son, Robert, sold the Ox-Bow farm to Albert Beach. This farm is now owned by Peter Webber.

 

History of Northern Wisconsin, pub 1881: An Indian trader, Louis Chappee, or Chappieu, came to Menominee in 1796, and as an agent of the American Fur Company, established a post on the Wisconsin side of the river near where Marinette's house now stands. He was a bold, energetic man, a soldier in spirit and a trader by instinct. For many years he retained the monopoly of the trade. When William Farnsworth, also an agent of the company, and Charles R. Bush came in 1822, they saw a flourishing of the trade and effecting the release from Fort Howard the release of two Indian chiefs who had been imprisoned, through Chappee's influence.

Centennial History of Menominee County (Michigan), Chapter XII, P.73: John  Chappee, Company 17 Wisconsin Volunteers:  About the year 1794 Louis CHAPPEU, or CHAPPEAN was established as an Indian trader on the Wisconsin side of the Menominee, on or near the site where John B. JACOBS residence formerly stood, and where the Boom Company¹s boarding house now stands. He occupied a log house which would seem to have been calculated for defence. He is said to have lived there twenty eight years, when the premises were taken possession of--during his absence it is said--his effects turned out and the house demolished...

 

In October 1842 David JONES and Erastus BAILEY entered lots 3 and 7 Section 19, township 30 Range 23, embracing both sides of the river, where the mill dam was built and being nearly the same as the present mill site. About the same time, viz: in October 1842 JONES & BAILEY deeded one third interest to Jesse H. LEAVENWORTH for $4,000.

 

For some reason, the entries by JONES & BAILEY were cancelled in June 1844. In Sept. of the same year, PLACE re-entered the west side of the river, that is lot 3. The east side was not re-entered until 1848 by Alex STOWE. At this time the property was about the same as above described. Lumber was then and for years afterward, rafted and run down the river and out to vessels upon the anchorage, a distance then rated at sixteen miles.

 

Supplies were loaded in scows or boats at the mouth of the river and drawn in wagons or sleighs to the mill a distance called eight miles. There was no road from Peshtigo mills to either of the other principal rivers. The only road between the Peshtigo and Menomonee was from PLACE¹s to CHAPPEN¹s trading post and then down the Menominee about four miles to the mills. This was a pretty good road in the winter; by careful driving a cutter could get through without more than two upsets. The young people maintained that it was a good road....Richard Hall, Centennial History of Oconto County, pub. 1876

 

History of Oconto County, researched, written, and copyrighted by Rita Neustifter, 1998: After 1865 the majority of children born in the Great Lakes were Metis. Prominent names of Métis families in Oconto County included Cappe, Rankin, Grignon, de Langlade, Tourtillott, Gauthier, LaBelle, Porlier, Gillett, Pecor, Courchaine, Mechaquette and Chappiere. Gradually English, Jewish and Scottish were added to the mix, but the result remained Métis. Names of these families included Farnsworth, Lawe, Bush, Moses, Wilber, Warrington, Tomas, Baxtor, Adams, Kenny, and Dodge. Some prominent Indian names of the time were Oaskash (The Claw), Ok-ko-me-chum (Great Wave), Sthai-ke-tok (Scare All), Kikatosh, Machickanee, Okachelum, Nikamiskamus, Kapous, Wapoose, Kachtey, Danpoose, Miokowico, Shawanokacik, Askenit, Corn, Shawanometer, Mazoma, Markinat, Kajachsiu, Opehtans, and Nacuti. Because the Indian did not originally have a written language using an alphabet, the spelling of their names was left to the skill and mercy of the record keepers. The result was different English, Germanic, and French interpretations of the same names.
