About Joseph Edward Brazeau


Hudson's Bay Company Servant, 1846-70

Joseph Brazeau began fur trading in the 1830's along the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers before joining the Hudson's Bay Company. According to Anne (McMullen) Belliveau in "Small Moments in Time," his "attire was somewhat unusual and, according to a family description, he sported a cloak rather than a coat and wore a flat, black Spanish sombrero on his auburn hair. He could speak nine languages. Brazeau was also of considerable help to the Palliser Expedition Mount Brazeau

Marie Josephte, the sister of Joseph Robidoux II, had at least one daughter by her second husband, Dominique Phisbec, in Montreal. He was listed in the genealogy as a French fur trader. She married Phisbec on Nov. 24th, 1788, at twenty-five years of age, and bore a daughter by him about the year 1787, named Julie Robidoux Phisbec. This daughter came with her mother to St. Louis, presumably after the death of the father. Marie Josphete married there Alexandre Belissime in 1796. The daughter, Julie, married one Joseph Brazeau Jr., who was born in about the year 1785 at St. Louis Missouri. They were married on June 11, 1812 at the old Cathedral of St. Louis, and had three children, Joseph Charles and Marie Josephime. Mysterious Robidpux
