This is a copy from a ledger sheet from the Sibley Papers. I believe it shows the debts of the employees of a fur-trading outfit in 1834. It is signed by one of the top men in the trading business, Hercules Dousman, and appears to be in his handwriting. I think this document was prepared to transfer the debts owed to the "Western Outfit" to the newly created "Sioux Outfit." At the same time Henry Sibley came to Minnesota in 1834, there was a major realignment in the ownership of the local fur trade, with Dousman and Sibley being two of the principal new owners. This document may have been used to transfer the employee's debts into the new company.
It is very hard to read, but my ancestor's name, Francois Trudell, looks to be the 3rd name down. It looks like he owed $20.12.
I am looking for information on Mary Red Kettle. She was an Oglala Sioux. ____________________ Hello and welcome to our website. it would help us to help you if you would give us more information than just her name and tribal affiliation. How are you related to her? do you have any vital dates on her? do you know who her husband was?
