Carol , You are correct on the death date of Jean Cadieu, 30 September 1681.
Sorry I was reading French & not very well.
I have all this info on my computer & can print it off if you need more.
There is a sory about Jean Cadieu on line in French at Http://www.multimania.com/CadieuxJ.htm.
I have some of the
original document from film at the archives in Montreal & the FHL.
One that I love is the Cadieu Legend. I had it translated. It is about his death after fighting the Indians on the voyage home. It tells of the story & the song the voyageurs sang as they traveled ,
Here in Detroit, MI we are celebrating our 300th Birthday . Jean's , son , Pierre Cadieu came to Detroit under Cadillac as a bargeman 30 May 1705. This info was taken from "Cadillac's Village" or "Detroit Under Cadillac" with list of property owners and A History of the Settlement 1701-1710.
My French Heritage connects me to eight of the original families of Detroit.
There was a massacre of infants in 1689 by the Iroquois at Lachine. I will look it up & see which children were killed
