Jogues Isaac 1607-1646 Born At Orleans France Entered The
Society of Jesus, and sailed for Canada in 1636. Set out almost
immediately for the Huron mission. From there sent to the Tobacco
nation; and in 1641 visited the Chippewas at Sault Ste. Marie, and stood
upon the shores of Lake Superior. Went to Quebec the following year, and
on the return journey captured by a party of Mohawks and carried off to
the Iroquois country. After being repeatedly tortured, escaped at Fort
Orange, with the help of the Dutch governor, and sailed for France,
arriving at Rennes in 1643. After an interview with the queen regent,
Anne of Austria, returned to Canada the following year, and sent as an
ambassador to the Mohawks, 1646. Concluded a treaty of peace, and
returned to Quebec. Sept. 27 of the same year, again set out for the
Iroquois country, this time as a missionary. The attitude of the Indians
had changed, and on Oct. 18 he was tomahawked as he entered one of the
lodges at Tionnontoguen. =Index=: (Samuel de Champlain era) Professor in college of Rouen,
