© 2000


Aya,
Some of the Ancestors of Jacques Shocco Godfroy have been also found in error because of the discovered discrepancies the family lines of the page titled CORRECTION TO GENEALOGICAL FILE OF THE BOOK in the book mentioned above. Therefore, we are publishing this brief outline of some of the descendants of Shocco Godfroy.

We are in hopes that this will help many others to find their correct family lines, and also help to eliminate any confusion as to whether this family line has Wea Indian Blood. Please keep in mind that this is only “one” (1) direct line from Shocco Godfroy and that there are many others.

In the future, there may be an updated version of this book printed and published, but until then lets make the corrections to these lineages known to the public, so that they may correct their family lineage and history.

Burial: June 1795, Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan.
Military service: British Militia Officer in Pontiac's War
Nationality: French
Occupation: Interpreter for the Indians
Residence: Bef. 1761, Detroit, Michigan

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).

Marriage Notes for Jacques Godfroy and Frances L'Evelille: SOURCES:
1. Early Métis History - 1525 - 1766


Notes for Frances L'Evelille:
Nationality: Kaskaskia Indian - 1/2 blood & 1/2 French
Baptism: Frances L'Eveille

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.


I'm not sure how this next entry fits into place but thought it noteworthy just the same. BKL.
Fort Detroit inhabitants who paid rent between 1707 - 1710, and includes those who paid no rent but are in the vicinity in 1701 or earlier, to 1710.
1707 - Laurent L’Evelille, Panis (slave) Indian, arrived 1706, no rent.

Notes for Jacco Tackeketah Godfroy:
Nationality: Nation of Wea (Waayaahtanwa)
Occupation: Principal Chief of the Wea Nation
Jacco's Wea Indian name was spelled several different ways....
Tack-ke-ke-tah
Tac-kee-kee-Quah
Tac-kee-kee-kan
Jack-ke-ke-kan
Whichever the case, his Indian name meant...the Tall Oak Tree., or Tall Oak.

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.

Notes for Nancy MorningStar Hunter:
Nationality: Nation of Wea (Waayaahtanwa) - Full Blood

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.

Notes for John Shubael Fuller :
Military service: Bet. January-29-1864 - October-1865; 131st 13th Cavalry, Civil War
Occupation: Farmer

John Fullers grandson was Herb Fuller. John died at the age of 78 yrs of Typhoid Fever. They lived around Jalapa Indiana.

John was an illegitimate child; it is uncertain who his biological parents were. John’s father (biological?) was probably from Dearborn Co., Indiana, or Hamilton Co., Ohio. His Biological fathers name may also have been John. (Ed Melton)

Pension Records say he was 66 years old on 12-7-1885, and discharged on 10-3-1865 at the age of 44.

His father's name could have been John Shubael Fuller, and engineer/stone mason.

Census records show that that John's father was born in Massachusetts.

Civil War Records:
131st. 13th Cavalry, January 29, 1864, mustered out on October 3, 1865, Company A.
John became very ill and someone brought him back from the front lines of the War. Some said he wouldn't live, but he did. He was brought back to Indianapolis Indiana for four months. John served two terms in the Civil War.
