[from a Find A Grave contributor]
The 1857 Minnesota Territorial Census lists Allan Morrison, age 55, as being born in Canada; Charlotte L. Morrison, age 45, is listed as being born in Minnesota. Their children are all listed as being born in Minnesota. There is a Terrebonne township in Red Lake County, Minnesota.
At the time she married Allan Morrison he was from Terrebonne, Quebec, Canada. Terrebonne is not in Minnesota. Charlotte may have been living in Terrebonne, Quebec, Canada at the time they were married but she was born at Fort William, Ontario, Canada.
Excerpt from Old Crow Wing: History of a Village, John Humphrey, et al, Evergreen Press, page 14.
The WPA Crow Wing County Research Collection says that the year 1843 is an important date in the history of the Crow Wing settlement, for in this year Allan Morrison settled opposite the south mouth of the Crow Wing River. He was the first white person to settle permanently in Crow Wing. An article in Harper's Magazine, 1859, signed by "Penman", seemingly by the Reverend Charles Hallock, gives a picture of the Crow Wing of that date. "Allan Morrison was the postmaster, farmer, trader, hotel keeper, and agent for a line of stage coaches. He had lived in the vicinity sixteen years and spoke English, Cree, and Chippewa."
Excerpt from Old Crow Wing: History of a Village, John Humphrey, et al, Evergreen Press, page 43.
"According to his [Allan Morrison's] granddaughter, Rose Parker, formerly of Crow Wing Historical Society, Allan Morrison married Louise Chaboullier in 1820. She was the daughter of a member of an old Northwest Fur Company of Saskatchewan who died in Canada in 1812. She was educated in a convent school. Rose Parker spoke of her as a "mixed blood culture and refinement," at whose home she enjoyed visiting. Such notables as Bishop Ireland visited there. She was known as the hostess of Crow Wing."
