Biographical History

Agent of the American Fur Company at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.

From the description of Gabriele Franchere papers, 1834-1851. (University of Michigan). WorldCat record id: 34420333

Franchere was born in Montreal in 1786. He was well educated in French and English. From 1810-1814 he was part of the near fatal American Fur Co. expedition to the Columbia River and Astoria (Ore.), about which he later published two books. Later, Franchere continued working for the Co. in Sault Sainte Marie (Mich.), using his funds to pay the failing Co.'s liabilities. He then associated with another fur operation and eventually operated his own fur business in New York. Franchere died on April 12, 1863 in St. Paul (Minn.) and was survived by his second wife, several daughters, a son, and a step-son. (Information from the collection.) The Clarke Historical Library has various editions of his two books. Additional correspondence of Franchere's, in the American Fur Co. records, is available at the Clarke on microfilm, Micro. Mss. F59.
