(General Brock era) Passed by Congress, 84.
Born in Normandy, 1608. Came to Canada, 1640. Two
years later, on his way to the Huron country with Father Jogues
(q.v.), they were captured by the Iroquois, and carried off to their
villages, where they were tortured. Couture escaped a worse fate by
being adopted into an Iroquois family. In 1661 accompanied Fathers
Dablon and Drouillette (q.v.) on an expedition towards Hudson Bay.
Threatened by an Iroquois war-party, however, they got no farther than
Lake Necouba, and retreated down the Saguenay to Tadoussac. =Bib.=:
