    [N. Baron.FTW]

    On or about May 5, 1798, Pierre Brancheau (his wife Veronique Gelinas had died in March, 1795) and his oldest son Pierre Jr., along with Francois X. Leroux and his wife, Veronique Brancheau (daughter of Pierre Sr. and Veronique Gelinas); Ambroise Reau and spouse; Joseph Bonneau and spouse; Antoine Deneau and spouse; and Jean Baptiste Tremblay (no spouse) along with thirteen children started up the St. Lawrence River headed for New York. They arrived there in September, 1798 at a point of land near Cornwall, Ontario. They named this location Messena, New York for LeRoux's former home at Messena, France. The group remained there for the remainder of 1798 and 1799. Dissatisfied with this location, they moved on and during the summer of 1800 arrived in Monroe County, Michigan in an area later to be called Frenchtown. Here they settled down, clearing the land, cutting the trees to build their houses, and settling into a life of farming, hunting, and fishing. Their families were born and raised here and they prospered in their own way. There were no schools or churches when they arrived. A church, St. Charles Borromeo, was built in 1838, in Frenchtown (later Newport) on a piece of land donated by Jean Baptiste Trembley.
    Pierre Sr. died after 1810 in Monroe County. Pierre Jr. met and married Margaret Rau of Monroe in 1808 and they had 16 children. Among them were Pierre III, Antoine, Jean Baptiste, David, and Isadore Gilbert. This was the start of the Brancheau family in Michigan.
