Carheil Etienne De

A Breton, of noble birth. Came to Canada as a

Jesuit missionary in 1666. After two years spent at Quebec, left in 1668

for his mission among the Cayugas. Spent a number of years there in a

zealous but largely fruitless effort to convert the Indians to

Christianity. In 1683 sent to the Hurons at Michilimackinac, and

laboured among that tribe for many years. Finally returned to Quebec,

where he died. =Bib.=: Campbell, Pioneer Priests of North America;
