Note

1856~69Michel Cadotte (July 22, 1764 – July 8, 1837) (also spelled Michael, Cadott, Cadeau, and other variations) or (Ojibwe: Kechemeshane (or Gichi-miishen in the contemporary spelling) "Great Michel")

He was a Métis fur trader of Ojibwe and French-Canadian descent who dominated business in the area of northern Wisconsin and the south shore of Lake Superior.

Cadotte was born in Saulte Ste. Marie, Michigan in 1764. Sometime after 1792, Cadotte established a trading post at La Pointe on Madeline Island. From this advantageous site he built a large and flourishing fur trade that served northern Wisconsin and parts of Minnesota.

His marriage to Ikwesewe (also Equay-say-way or Traveling Woman), the daughter of Waub-i-je-jauk head of the White Crane clan, an Ojibwe chief, and his understanding of the Indians won him the affection of local tribes. It also gained him a monopoly of their trade.

For a time, Cadotte was one of the most successful traders in the area, but the invasion of the American Fur Company plus a disastrous raid by a band of Ojibwe Indians in 1811 eventually broke him. Cadotte was forced to become an agent of John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company.

Cadotte retired in 1823 and left his business to his two American sons-in-law, the brothers Lyman and Truman Warren. He died on July 8, 1837, and was buried at La Pointe in the Indian Cemetery.

Note

Mar 1857~26According to an article in the Wigtown (Scotland) newspaper, at the time of his wedding to Margaret Elizabeth McKean, James was residing at the Manor House, North Riding, Yorkshire, England. He was employed as the land agent for the Right Honorable Lord Greenock.

This is the last Will and Testament of me James Gordon of Tondu in the County of Glamorgan, Land Agent, made this third day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy three I give all my property, real and personal, and whatsoever the same may be unto my dear wife Elizabeth, and I appoint her sole Executrice of this my Will.

As Witness my hand - Jas Gordon

Signed by the said James Gordon as and for his last Will and Testament in the presence of us present at the same time who at his request in his presence and in the presence of each other, have hereunto set out names as Witnesses.

Tho. Stockwood, Solcitor, Bridgend
A.O. Stockwood, his clerk

The Will received a Grant of Probate on 20 April 1892, Lib 9, Fol 22 (Waterford, Ireland.)
Note

1892~61The double wide bural plot for Elizabeth in the Oakland Cemetery in Saint Paul, Minnesota was meant for Elizabeth and her husband James Gordon. The grave marker shows both of their names. However, the plot plan for the burial area shows Elizabeth's casket buried in the middle of the two plots. James Gordon died about 1892 in Cooladerry, Ireland and is buried nearby at Kilbehenny, Ireland.3
Death

20 Mar 1892~61James died on 20 Mar 1892 in Cooladerry, Clogheen, County Tipperary, IrelandG, at age ~61.4
Cause of Death

20 Mar 1892~61He died of sudden failure of heart action with no medical attendant.4
Burial

23 Mar 1892~61He was buried on 23 Mar 1892 in Protestant Cemetery-Saint David's Graveyard at Kilbehenny, County Limerick.

The Kilbehenny burial record read:
"Kilbehenny Parish, Diocese of Emly- register 1876 - James Gordon Cooladerry, buried 23/03/1892 by  D.O`Sullivan. & R.M. Miller. M.A Kilbehenny."
Kilbenny, Ireland - Burial location of James Gordon
Probate

21 Apr 1892~61His estate was probated on 21 Apr 1892 in Waterford, County Waterford, IrelandG. Probate of the Estate of James Gordon
Calendars of Will and Administrators 1858-1922

21 April 1892

The Will of James Gordon formerly of Tondue, Glamorgan, Wales and late of Cooladerry, County Tipperary, Land Steward, who died 20 March 1892 at Cooladerry was proved at Waterford by Elizabeth Gordon of Cooladerry, Widow, the sole Executor.

Effects £657 6 s. 3d.5
Note

James died in Cooladerry, Ireland in 1892 where he was employed as a "land steward". His Will was probated later that year at Waterford, Ireland.

In 1894 his wife Elizabeth, daughter Nora and son William emmigrated to America. His wife Elizabeth died in 1900 in Saint Paul, Minnesota and is buried in Oakland Cemetery. The monument marker on her grave would indicate that James, who died in 1892 is also buried there but the cemetery records indicate that only Elizabeth is buried in that plot. James was buried in Kilbehenny Ireland. There doesn't seem to be a grave marker for him and a portion of the cemetery was built over by a Community Center so the question remain, where exactly is he buried in the local cemetery.

Note

2005~136"Monson Foundation Supports Dentistry and the Community
The Saint Paul District Dental Society has had the privilege of managing and distributing funds from the George S. Monson Foundation since 1983. Dr. Monson was a Saint Paul dentist and a member of the Saint Paul District Dental Society until 1933. In 1981, his adopted daughter, Ruth Monson, left nearly $170,000 to the SPDDS for the purpose of supporting education in the field of dentistry.
The George S. Monson Fund is a combination of the Monson donation and part of an earlier trust dating back to 1919. The union of these two funds has been administered by the SPDDS since 1983. Currently Dr. Tom Neafus is the chair of the Monson Foundation Committee, and he has supplied the information for this article.
For ease of administration, the Monson Fund is invested and administered by the Minneapolis Foundation. Proceeds of the Monson Fund are given to University of Minnesota dental students, dental assisting students, and dental education institutions. Proceeds are also used to help offset the cost of the SPDDS Midwinter Meeting. While there are a number of recipients, the largest portion of the endowment goes to dental students.
The Monson Foundation has also supported the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, including $10,000 to the President's Club and $2,000 for the 2000 x 2000 x 2000 program. The Foundation has also benefited children by helping to support Children's Health Day at the Science Museum. The balance of the fund has tripled since its inception, even while disseminating the proceeds for the last 22 years.
Future plans for the Foundation include increasing the scope and size of the scholarship contributions and planning to help the Dunwoody Institute launch a dental technician progam by donating an annual scholarship. With adequate funding, the Foundation will continue to reach into the future by meeting and exceeding its goals. Your generosity is critically important to its success. Please consider making a donation if possible." (Northwest Dentistry, Journal of the Minnesota Dental Association, September-October 2005.)

Note

2010~141"The Saint Paul District Dental Society (SPDDS) has had the privilege of distributing funds from the George S. Monson Foundation for more than twenty years. Dr. Monson was a Saint Paul dentist and member until 1933. In 1981 his daughter, Ruth Monson, left several thousand dollars to create the George S. Monson Foundation for the purpose of supporting education in the field of dentistry." (Northwest Dentistry, Minnesota Dental Society Newsletter, January-February 2010.)
