KAUER. 10 State Highway Director I IN THE year 1734 a daughter was I 1 born to the La Flammes, al French family living at St. Joseph I on Lake Michigan. While she was I still a little girl, her parents moved I to Mackinac and there she grew up I and married her first husband, I Pilette de Sainte I 1765 Sainte Ange took his wife I to the site of the future city of Chi-1 cago where they lived for several I years. After a time she became fa-1 miliar with the language of the I Pottawatomies and other tribes, I studying their character and acquir-1 ing a great influence over them. I WThen Sainte Ange died, his widow I moved to the French village of Ca-1 hokia on the Mississippi. She soon I married again, this time to a Ca- I nadian named La Compt. During I the Revolution, the Cahokia villag-1 ers, whom George Rogers Clark had I won to the American cause, were I in constant danger of attack by the I Indian allies of the British. I More than once the fearful villag- I ers of Cahokia, armed and ready I for an attack, saw a strange pro- I cession coming out of the woods—a I band of warriors with their war- I paint freshly washed away’ and I humbly obeying the orders given I them by the tall white woman I marching ahead of them! I After rearing a large family of I children, Mme. La Compt was wid-1 owed again. Again she was mar-1 tied, this time to an American I named Tom Brady. She outlived I him for 30 years and died in Ca-1 hokia in 1843 at the age of 109 years. I Western Newspaper Union.
