Galinee Rene De Brehant De
A member of a noble family of Brittany;
came to Canada in 1668. With his fellow-Sulpician, Dollier de Casson
(q.v.), carried out an important exploration in 1669-1670, from
Montreal up the St. Lawrence, and around the south shore of Lake Ontario
to Burlington Bay; thence to the Grand River, which they descended to
Lake Erie, where they wintered. In March, 1670, they continued their
journey along the north shore, passed through Lake St. Clair, and
coasting the south side of Manitoulin Island, reached Sault Ste. Marie,
where they found Marquette and Dablon. They returned to Montreal by way
of Lake Nipissing and the Ottawa. Galinee's narrative of the journey was
sent home to the king. He himself returned to France in 1671. =Index=:
