Long Description:
Later it was taken over by the American Fur Company. William Dickson was factor from 1832 until his death before 1840 when Father Christian Hoecken baptized his daughter Louise. Theophile Bruguler was later in charge. Father Hoecken was again there in December 1850 and Charles Larpenteur was then the factor.
