Early Cadotte AncestryThrough the generations to Michel (le petit) Cadotte
Holding Alofta sword and symbolic tuft of sod, a French envoy, Sieur de Saint Lusson, took possession of all Great Lakes country in the name of King Louis XIV of France in an impressive ceremony held at Sault Ste. Marie on June 14, 1671.
Among the voyageurs on this occassion was Mons. Cadeau (surname later changed to Cadot/Cadotte), 1649-1729.
Photo source: "In Other Years", Sault Star Newspaper, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. June 19, 1997.
The grandson of earlier mentioned Mons, Cadeau - Mathurin Cadot was born 1649 Poitou-Charentes, France. He married on 31 Jul 1688 to Marie Catherine Durand (1666-1708), and died Nov. 8, 1729, Batiscan, Quebec. He is buried: Saint-Francois-Xavier Cemetery. Batiscan. Quebec
- Marie Louise (1690-1708)
- Jean Francois (1693-1743)
- Charles (1696-1763)
- Marie Jeanne (1697-1759)
- Rene (1699-1749)
- Mathurin Narcisse (1701-1777)
This family produced many voyageurs, starting with Mathurin, who left for a trip up the Outaouais five days after his wedding.
His sons, Francois, Rene, & Charles also answered the call of the wild and traveled west.

Jean Francois's son Michel Cadot was born 18 Sep 1729 Batiscan. Quebec. He married on 17 Jan 1761 to Marie Anne Cosset (1742-1817), and died 15 Mar 1784 Maskinonge, Quebec
