  • Notes 
    • More than likely moved from Canada to Little Chute in 1837.

    Immigration:
    • Ephraim and Marie immigrated along with their children Olivine, Joseph, Henry and Mary from St. François-du-Lac, Canada to the United States via the Great Lakes and Fox River locating in Little Chute. Marie also brought her father, Antoine with them. The year was the fall of 1836 or 1837 as the records conflict but 1837 is most likely the date as son Joseph Henry was born in Canada in 1837.

      In the record of Ephraim St. Louis he states:

      "I landed at Green Bay October 26, A.D. 1836. From reports and information there, I concluded at once to move further up on the Fox River. I bought a canoe, trusted all my property, family and all, in one cargo. With so much freight, the river was then very difficult to ascend and in about four days I landed at the place where I have since lived, then call Petit Chute."

      According to stories handed down to present day descendants, 10 families, mostly related and including the St. Louis family, paddled their families and belongings from Sorrel, Canada, down the St. Lawrence and across the lakes to Green Bay.
