The following burials at the Old Traverse des Sioux and in the Old French cemetery were gleaned from the book "Old Traverse des Sioux", by Thomas Hughes, Nicollet County Historical Society, St. Peter, MN. 1993 Edition-
Mrs. William McMasters and 2 of her children. Son of James P. Smith Washburn Ellis 1st wife of Louis LaBlanc and son of Louis LaBlanc who d. 1844. Son of Chief Tatemani Mrs. Joseph Montereul and some of her children. Rev. Robert Hopkins who drowned July 4, 1851, body found 3 days later.* Thomas Longley, brotherof Mrs. S.R. rRggs drowned on July 15, 1843.* 1st wife of Louis Laramie Louis Laramie d. Jan. 1, 1863 Several Indians, some Frenchmen and some halfbreeds. Jenny Pettijohn's older brother, older sister and baby sister.
*They were laid to rest on a small knoll,under 3 dwarf Oak trees, at Traverse des Sioux.Assuming the area has not been disturbed since then, the graves Should still be there.
Just started reading "Among the Sioux". On page 20 it mentions the place where Thomas Longley was buried. His sister Mary Riggs called it the "Oaks of weeping"-- three dwarf oaks on a small knoll.
By the way I had been searching for the book "among the Sioux" for a few months now and I am so glad that Hermin1 posted the info for it. I had been looking for anything about Quinn family and it supposedly has some on William Quinn. Thanks
