Biography

The following is a biography of Rosalie given by her to Minnie W. Cochrane for the Minnesota Historical Society as part of the Works Progress Administration (Project 3870) in October 1937.


Rosalie Richard was born on a farm near St. Johns, Canada, June 15, 1870. She is the daughter of Francois X. Richard and Philomene Poutre Richard. Francois X. Richard was born on a farm near St. Johns, Canada, in 1835. He was the son of Alexis Richard, who was born in Eastern Canada in 1800 and came near to loosing his head fighting for "Canadian rights" in 1836 "when the English Government failed to keep its promises to Canada".

Alexis Richard, Grandfather to Rosalie, came to Little Falls from Canada in 1871 to join his son, Edmond Richard. Francois X. Richard (father of Rosalie) came to Little Falls in 1880 from Fall River, Mass., having gone there from Canada shortly after his marriage. While living in Fall River, he worked as a carpenter and contractor. On coming to Little Falls he bought a farm of 160 acres at Oak Ridge five miles east of Little Falls. He lived there until about 1901 when he built a house at 605 N.E. Fourth Street, retired from active work and moved into Little Falls. He died in February 1921. His wife died in 1925.

Philomene Poutre Richard was born in Eastern Canada, April 15, 1839. Her family took an active part in the Canadian Rebellion of 1836. Her uncle, Felix Poutre, was noted for his many adventures. Mrs. Dominick Richard has a book which was owned by her husband (brother of Rosalie) describing some of them. This book was written in French by Felix Poutre in 1884. Published by Beauchemin and Valvis of Montreal. It is entitled, "Memories of a Prisoner of the Canadian State", in 1835. The copy owned by Mrs. Richard is the second edition. The book tells how Felix Poutre, working as he felt for the rights of his people (The French Canadians) "swore men in, to fight against the Queen" (Victoria of England) and was sentenced to death. Before he was captured he hid for three weeks in a hollow tree. His brother (Rosalie Richard's grandfather) carried food to him at night. In trying to cross the line into the United States, Felix Poutre was captured, taken to Montreal, tried, and sentenced to death. In order "to escape the death sentence, he played the fool, turning everything upside down in the jail," pretending to be insane. Different doctors examined him but as he was a large, strong man, and handled them roughly they became afraid of him and finally put him outside the jail. Too smart to try to escape, he took off his boots, and carrying them on a cane, walked around the jail apparently trying to get back in. When night came he slipped away under cover of the darkness and escaped across the border into the United States. The book contains some quaint illustrations of his adventures. The spy who led to his capture is pictured in high silk hat and ruffled cravat. There is one picture of the prisoner trying to choke one of the doctors and another of him turning a stove in the jail upside down, making plain why his departure was desired. The picture of the prisoner departing barefooted, his boots tied on a cane swung over his shoulder, and a fur cap on his head is quite unique.

Besides writing this book, Felix Poutre dramatized it and with a group of players, presented it in various towns in the United States. When Rosalie Richard lived in Fall River, the play was put on there and she remembers Mr. Poutre being entertained at her father's home. He was tall, over six feet, distinguished looking and always wore a hugh silk hat and caped overcoat.

Rosalie Richard attended public schools at Fall River, coming to Little Falls with her parents in 1880. Speaking of life on the farm Miss Richard said, "The first few years my father had oxen as well as horses. He thought oxen were better for breaking new land. Crops were good. Wheat was the principal crop. He raised some potatoes." Recalling life in Little Falls when she was a young lady, Miss Richard said, "I remember we used to hold church bazaars in the Opera House. I was there when the balcony collapsed.. "That was May 10, 1887 when Little Falls was celebrating the the Little Falls Water Power Co." The crowd proved too great for the balcony and it slowly sank, cutting off the front exit. My brother told me to keep quiet and let the crowd go by. This we did and none of our party were hurt. One funny thing happened near us. Just before the accident a group of girls near by were having a gay time making fun of a big country lad who sat near them. When the crash occurred one of the girls was so badly frightened she jumped astride the boy's neck and remained on his shoulders until the excitement lessened. He remarked, 'Lady, now you can get off.'"

For thirty years Miss Richard was a dressmaker in Little Falls, going to the Cities to study styles, quite different from those of today. "Skirts were long and full seven yards around. Pleated woolen skirts were popular. Under their dress skirts the ladies wore three or four starched white skirts until they looked like balloons. Waists were stayed with whalebones, sleeves were long except in evening gowns. One time even the street dresses had trains. More woolen materials were used than silk which was rather scarce. Everyone wore woolen underwear in winter."

For the last six years Miss Richard has spent part of each year with her nieces in Minneapolis. She made her home at 605 N.E. Fourth St. into two apartments and resides in the upper one. She is a member of Saint Francis Xavier Church.

Biography

Memories of Rosalie Richard
by nephew Bob Barber (December 2010)

I remember aunt Rosalie (Richard) very well because she spent about six months of every year living with us, from about 1931, when my dad died, until 1951 when my mom passed away. During this period, our little family consisted of our mother (Marguerite St. Martin), her sister, Eleanor St. Martin, my brother Bill (Barber) and myself (Bob Barber). In fact, however, Aunt Rosalie was always considered a family member even though she always divided her time between our place and her home in Little Falls.

Rosalie adored my mother (Marguerite St. Martin) but she and Aunt Eleanor (St. Martin), who was like another mother to Bill and I,were not always on good terms and I think it had to do with her deceased sister (Rochelle Richard) who was the mother of our mom (Marguerite), Eleanor, Georgianna, et al. No doubt she believed that her sister (Rochelle Richard) was mistreated by Anton St. Martin and she may well have been right. However, Eleanor loved her father very much and resented Rosalie's frequent negative references to the St. Martins. Frequently, for example, when my brother got into troubleor did something dumb, Rosalie would say "that's the St. Martin in him coming out".

Although French was her first language, Rosalie was perfectly at home with English. However, she usually waited until she got home to go to confession because she felt more comfortable confessing to Father Lamont at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Little Falls.

I remember a visit in the summer of 1937 or 1938 from Rosalie's brother, Gill (Gilbert Richard)and his wife who were on their way to Little Falls from their home in Davenport, Iowa. This was the only time I sawGilbert but he was very kind to Bill and me. I don't remember his wife's name but I believe she was not his first wife as she seemed a little ill at ease in the company ofEleanor and my mom. They only stayed a couple of days but I still have a photo of Bill and I standing near uncle Gill's big Buick.

When we visited aunt Rosalie in Little Falls, we often stayed part of the time at Rosalie's place on 4th Avenue and slept on the front porch. She had the place divided, she lived in the upstairs rooms and Lawrence Richard and his family lived downstairs. In those days they still had the privy outside. Lawrence had electric power downstairs but Rosalie still had kerosene lamps and pump water in her rooms. Nevertheless I remember those days fondly.

I recall Rosalie telling us about the French rebellion against the English and her uncle having to hide in the trunk of a tree for many days to avoid capture by the hated English troops.I remember wondering how a man hides for any length of time in a hollow tree. Rosalie didn't think too highly of the Brits-thought them uncouth. To show the superiority of the French as compared with the English, she told of a Frenchman having dinner with an Englishman and the French fellow was startled when the Limy let go with loud belch. To show his displeasure, the Frenchman replied with a big fart.

I last saw Rosalie at St Otto's Residence in Little Falls in about 1964. She was over a hundred at the time but she in good spirits but just a bit confused at times. She asked about my mom (Marguerite St. Martin) like she was still alive and called me Ralph a couple of times. She gave her place to the monastery in exchange for their promise to take care of her for the rest of her life. She did alright on the deal as she lived to be one hundred and eight!

Biography

The following is a short biographical sketch of William written by his sister, Mary Warren English (Born: 15 Oct 1835 - Died: 15 August 1925)
Copied from the Family Record:


"Abraham Warren born Sept 25th, 1747 served six years in the Revolution - was first cousin of Gen. Jos Warren.
Lyman Warren (his son, born May 25th, 1771, in Hartford, Conn. Married in Berkshire, Mass. to Mercy Whipple.
Their son, Lyman Marquis Warren was born at the latter place in August 9th, 1794. Married at Mackinac, Michigan to Mary Cadotte Sept 6th, 1821. William Whipple Warren their eldest son was born in La Pointe, Madeline Is., Lake Superior, May 27th, 1825.
Lyman Marcus Warren , the father of William, came to the Lake Superior region at the early date of 1817 - and under the following circumstances. During the winter of 1815 and 1816 - Congress enacted a law that no foreigners should engage in trade with the Indians who did not become a citizen. The English traders who for years been engaged in trade at various points on Lake Superior - had after the enforcement of this law employed American clerks to take charge of their posts. Several of these young men came from the Western part of New York and Vermont on Lake Champlain. Lyman Marcus Warren was of this party and came to La Pointe in 1818 then the trading post of Michael Cadotte. And thus under this veteran trader - the young man soon established himself in trade - gaining friends and favors among the Indians - and in the year 1821 married Mary Cadotte - the third daughter of M. Cadotte. This same M. Cadotte is frequently mentioned in the narrative of "Alexander Henry". He speaks of him as possessing a powerful influence among the Indians and considered by them as their chief - and was not only his friend - but a friend to the English - and it was by him that the Chippewa of Lake Superior were prevented from joining Pontiac. His wife, Madame Cadotte was an Indian woman of the Chippewa nation and was very generally respected.
L. M. Warren was subsequently and for many years employed as chief _______ at La Pointe for the American Fur Company. He superintended the erection of the "New Trading Post" on Madeline Is. in 1834 and 35 under Ramsay Crooks.
During the year of 1831 the missionaries of the American Board - Rev. Sherman Hall and others, arrived at La Pointe and were warmly welcomed and treated with utmost kindness and hospitality by L. M. Warren and family - and great assistance rendered to them in the establishment of their mission. The Roman Catholic priest, Frederic Baraga came to the place in 1835 and also received great kindness and assistance - the entire family of M. Cadotte being of that faith. Sometime during the year of 1838 - L. M. Warren dissolved his connections with the American Fur Trade and removed to the Chippewa River to where he had been appointed as farmer and sub-agent to the Chippewa's. He located his post a few miles above Chippewa Falls and was there engaged in trade and in other business matters for several years. Mary, his wife, died at that place July 21st, 1843 and in the following winter, in the month of February, he made a winters passage through to La Pointe with three one-horse trains taking with him the remains of his wife and accompanied by his two youngest daughters - then but little girls.
This first American pioneer and permanent settler of Lake Superior - died at La Pointe Oct 10th, 1847, aged 53 years. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church.
William Whipple Warren was sent to the Mission School at Mackinac when only 8 years of age - but during the summer of 1836, his grandfather, Lyman Warren made a visit to La Pointe and on his return home - took William with him to Clarkson, New York where he attended school for two years - but was afterwards placed by his own father in the Oneida Institute at Whitesborough, 3 miles west of the city of Utica. The school then under charge of Pres. Beriah Green, a man famous in anti-slavery annals. William remained there 3 years and distinguished himself every way in the recitation room, in the playground, and in the social circle. He returned to La Pointe in the summer of 1841, in company with Rev. L. H. Wheeler and wife and Miss Abby Spooner, missionaries to La Pointe. He won a warm and life-long friendship with these most _____mable people by his genial and happy disposition - and ever ready and kindly assistance - during their long and tedious voyage up the Lake for this was before the days of railroads and steamboats on Lake Superior.
He had not entirely forgotten the Chippewa language - his mother's tongue - but in a very short time - could speak it almost as fluently as the English - and it is in connection with those early days of his return to the country - that he is even more frequently spoken of - by those who knew him as being so full of life - cheerfulness and socialibility - giving bold descriptions - telling heroic incidents - wonderful fairy tales from the Arabian Nights - Robinson Crusoe - to crowds of eager listeners - Indians of all classes - both old and young - and they in return - would relate the often told stories and traditions of the tribe.
In 1842 he was appointed Government interpreter under Rev. Alfred Brunson, Indian agent at La Pointe - and from that time - was engaged in the Indian and Government service until nearly the close of his life. He was married in the Summer of 1842 to Matilda Aitken, daughter of William Aitken of American Fur Trade. She was educated at the Mackinac Mission School.
It was during his interpretership under __. T. Hayes in 1844 and 1845 that his health began to fail - frequent exposures - long and severe winter expeditions, connected with the Indian service at that time, brought on lung difficulties which finally ended his life. He first removed with his family to Minnesota in the fall of 1845 - came to Crow Wing and Gull Lake - was there employed as farmer and interpreter under J. Fletcher - Winnebago Agent then also in charge of the Mississippi Chippewas.
He was also employed as interpreter in the removal of the Lake Superior Indians under J. S. Matrous - which however proved a failure in the end - William never approved of this removal - but still he faithfully performed his duties of his position - and it was during this last active service that he collected much of the material composing his writings - meeting with so many of the old men of the tribe - in their native homes - gave him an excellent opportunity for __ ____ _____. The manuscript was frequently hurriedly written and many times during great physical weakness, had strength and life been prolonged it would have been much more extensive and complete. He mentions in a letter written at that time as being far short to the original aim and design - and needed a careful revision, but this he did not live to do. He went east in the winter of 1853 for treatment - hoping that a benefit might be the result - but he started to return to his home about the last of May - but did not live to reach it - he died in St Paul at the home of his sister Mrs. E. B. Price - June 1, 1853 - at the early age of 28. He left four children, but only two are now living - William Tyler Warren and Mrs. Madaline Uran - both of White Earth. The mother - Mrs M. Fontaine is also living at White Earth, Minnesota.
P.S. I would here add that he was a true and a firm friend to the Indian and detested all manner of fraud and deceit. The only enemies he ever had are those that he had exposed by defrauding the Indians. He was a man of unblemished character and strictly temperate habits."

     LeSueur Sentinel, May 5, 1900

     The most unexpected death of Gephard Durenberger, Sr. came on Sunday morning at about 6 o'clock and terminated a long and busy life.
     The deceased was born in Wittemberg, Germany on January 27, 1818 and was past 82 years of age. He came to the U.S. in 1855 and took up a claim in Henderson township where he resided 19 years, when he moved to Lake Praire township, Nicollet county, where he resided 16 years, retiring then and removing to this city where he since resided. For 35 years he enjoyed farming. By hard work, strict economy, and the increase in the value of the land, he acquired quite a modest competence, in addition to raising a family of 9 children.
     He married Thressa Miller on May 21, 1859, his wife and children surviving him, his being the first inroad death has made in the family circle.
