Fraser Simon 1776?-1862 Brought To Canada As A Child From New York
state, his widowed mother settling near Cornwall. Joined the North West
Company in 1792, and ten years later became a bourgeois or partner.
Served for a time at Grand Portage, and sent to the Athabaska district;
in 1805, when the Company decided to carry its operations beyond the
Rocky Mountains, put in charge of the new field. After establishing
trading-posts in New Caledonia, now northern British Columbia, set out
from Fort St. James on Stuart Lake, with Jules Maurice Quesnel, and a
party of voyageurs and Indians, upon the exploration of the great river
that bears his name. In 1811 promoted to the charge of the Red River
department, and offered knighthood as a recognition of his services in
the cause of exploration, but declined the honour. Was present at the
Seven Oaks affair, when Governor Semple of the Hudson's Bay Company lost
his life. Retired from the fur trade about the time of the coalition of
the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company. =Index=: (Sir James Douglas era) In
