   JEAN BAPTISTE MONTREUIL, born 27 January 1647, last child of six children born to Louis SEDILOT and Marie GRIMOULT was our forefather. Jean was our voyageur with early travel from New France to our Illinois Territory. When the Indians of the territory showed our voyageurs a better and warmer way to get to the Mississippi River, a number of Frenchmen went south for furs, riches and land to claim. This was the now Chicago Canal (Start of the Illinois River) avoiding the harsh climate of the overland route around the great lake. The first voyageurs experienced many hardships and failures from the years 1673 to 1691. A friendly tribe of Kaskaskia Indians endured migration with the French and ever present Jesuit priest. The SAGA started with Starve Rock, Lake Peoria (Creve Coeur and Fort St. Louis) then the River Des Peres in our now St. Louis. Going south they settled near the mouth of the now Kaskaskia River because of the great number of Frenchmen arriving at the trading post.
   These pioneers in the western world were surrounded by a wilderness inhabited only by Indians and wild beasts. With no communication with civilized man, except through tedious voyages of the traders to New Orleans and occasional visits to and from the village of Cahokia and Vincennes - yet no people probably enjoyed life better than they did. They were frank, open-hearted, brotherly, contented and joyous. Bringing with them the gayeties and vivacity of Paris life. The variety of social amusement and enjoyment of life’s pleasures gave the Jesuits fits. However, the city of Kaskaskia grew to a population of 7000 plus and was the little Paris of the Prairie. An earthquake and a flood created the island of Kaskaskia. The poor treatment by the Virginia roughnecks and the Civil War forced many French families to move to Missouri. French towns thrive on the Mississippi maintaining the old French structures and street of the original settlements.
   Jean Baptiste, son of Louis Sedilot, was named JEAN, however, with the crew that brought Father Allouez to Kaskaskia there were two Jeans: Jean Baptiste St. Gemme Beauvais and our Jean. For control of the crew in voice commands our Jean became Baptiste. The given name under Father Allouez made a family name, Jean Baptiste, for all our ancestors that followed.
   Jean Baptiste Sedilot dit Montreuil, born 4 Dec 1689, died 11 April 1766. Jean Baptiste Montreuil, at the age of 21, married Marie RAPIN, age 19 at the Notre Dame’s Church in Montreal on 23 December 1711.
