Notes for JACQUES (JAMES) SHOCCO GODFROY:
It is also said that Shocco married Chief Little Turtles', of the Miami, daughter Ma-song-e-quam. Shocco and Louisa were married at Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), but living la cote nord (the northern dimension).
Shocco, because of his services as interpreter to the Indians, Godfroy secured as a wife the favorite daughter of a Miami Chief. (Chief Osage) This occurred after the death of his wife Louisa Chapoton.
1722 - Source # 20: Jacques was born in 1722 and was very young when his parents died, and he was raised by his older sister Catherine (1717-1777). Like his father, he made his interest in the Fur Trade.
1753 - Shocco left April 6, 1753 to make a home in Detroit Michigan. He bought land there from Jacques Loderoute of Kaskaskia.
Shocco traveled among the Indians trading between 1745 - 1770. He was a Fur Trader and Interpreter. He traveled with Ottawa Chief Pontiac during his attempt to over throw the British in 1762-1769.
Shocco was very familiar with the Indian languages and became an interpreter and negotiator between the Indians and the Whites. In 1763 an Ottawa Warrior attacked the fort at Detroit and other English Post. Jacques “Shocco” and Dr. Chapoton were sent by the English commander to Treaty with Pontiac and dissuade him from his purpose. However, he would not be influenced; Shocco and other French inhabitants were suspected of encouraging Pontiac and were arrested and charged with treason. Shocco married in 1758 to Louise Clotilde Chapoton, and she died in 1764 leaving him one son named Jacques Gabriel. The senior Jacques “Shocco” would spend the rest of his live caring for his son and eventually deeded him farm lands, implements, cattle, silver, and slaves. He died in 1795.
1763 - 65- May 1763 Ottawa Chief Pontiac sent Jacques Godfroy (This was Shocco, Wea Chief Jacco Tachkeketah Godfroy’s grandfather.) and Mini Chesne, two Detroit Traders, and his most active French supporters, with a force of Indians to the Illinois Tribes, and a Kekionga (Miami) war party eagerly prepared to join them. (BOOK: THE MIAMI INDIANS by: BERT ANSON (c) 1970 MINI CHESNE pg. 65, 69)
1763 - Shocco was convicted to be hung for Treason. During the Siege of 1763 he expoused the cause of the Indians and because he had taken an Oath of loyalty to the British, Shocco was seized and sentenced to hang for treason. He was pardoned by Col. John Bradstreet, but Shocco in return had to take Captain Thomas Morris to Illinois Country.
1751 - Métis Records:
June 1: Monsieur Godefroy under command of Poupart (Poupard) alias LaFleur for Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan).
Francis' was the FIRST wife of Shocco. Frances L'Evelille was a 1/2 blood Kaskaskia Indian woman. Her father was a French soldier, and her mother was a full blooded Kaskaskia Indian woman. (Kaskaskia Under the French Regime.) Some say Francis's mother was Louise Francois Etienne et Marie Moral and a French Soldier. However, I have found 2 sources that state otherwise, that her mother was Mericer.

He married (3) Wea Woman 1779 in Fort Ouiatenon, West Lafayette, Indiana. She was born Abt. 1760 in Wea Village of Ouiatenon, Lafayette, Tippecanoe Co., Indiana.More About James Godfroy and Wea Woman:
Jacko also had a trading post at Fort Ouiatenon. (It is said this is where he married his Wea wife.) Jacko in 1746 married a Wea woman at Ka-wi-a-ki-un-gi. Jacko gave the Wea Village the name of Kawiakiungi meaning "Place of Thorns," located at present day near Thorntown, Boone Co. Indiana.
Jacko had Wea and Miami wives as well. He lived in the 'Old Miami Village" on the Eel River, 6 miles above present day Logansport Indiana. It is here that he had a Trading Post. He also received a land grant from the U.S. Government near Montpelier, Indiana.
Jacko Godfroy had a Potowatomi wife in Michigan, and they had several children; one of whom was named James or Jacques, and he also had a Miami wife.

Per Dr. Stewart Rafert: About Jacco's Indian name. Metekekekah = Tall Oak. Tekwa = Oak. Mehtehki ah Kihkwa = Wooden Drum. Rafert also says that Jacco came from the Wea who were in the Kankakee marsh area where the sandhills were covered with oak stands, or islands.
His mothers people were said to have come from the Village of Kawiakiungi "Place of Thorns" Thorntown Indiana, and that his mother’s peoples village before that was the Old Wea Village now called Oakhill Danville, Illinois.
Jacco Godfroy and his sister Mary live at the Wea Village of Weauteno, Rising Sun, AKA Orchard Town, Terre Haute Indiana. (aka The Lower Wea Village). They lived here prior to the beginning of Indiana Territory.
Jacco's principle village was called Weauteno, Rising Sun (aka Old Orchard Town of Wea's and Jacco’s Towne) located on the Wabash River, at present day Terre Haute, Indiana. Jacco still resided in Weauteno in 1791. After 1818 he moved his people up the Wabash River to a secondary Wea village at the mouth of Sugar Creek. This was Wea War Chief Stone Eater's village. They remained here until sometime after 1825.
Jacco and his family lived on his 1/2 brothers, Miami War Chief Francis Polonzwah Godfroy, Reservation land, the Salamonie Reserve, in Blackford Co., Indiana, South of Wells Co. They lived there between 1826 - 1836, after 1836 they moved to Henry Co. Indiana, and after 1846 they moved to Wells Co. Indiana.
Nancy MorningStar was Wea Chief Felix Hunter's daughter. We have yet to find any further information on Felix. Family oral history says that Felix's Wea Tribe/Band was from Pennsylvania and migrated to Ohio during the Iroquois Wars. Thus in Ohio is where Jacco met MorningStar. However, I have never been able to prove, nor have I ever heard of, any Wea presents in the Pennsylvania area.
