Fr Isaac Jogues

Departement du Loiret
Centre, France
Death: Oct. 18, 1646
Montgomery County
New York, USA

Roman Catholic Saint. A Jesuit priest sent to North America in 1636, he worked among the Huron Indians, journeying as far W as Sault Ste Marie. He and his companions were captured by Iroquois, and he was tortured, enslaved, and held captive at Ossernenon, where he eventually escaped, reaching New Amsterdam with aid from the Dutch. Following a period in France, he returned to North America, and in 1646 he was captured by Mohawks near Ossernenon and murdered soon after. He was decapitated and his body thrown into the Mohawk River. He was canonized in 1930. (bio by: Erik Lander)
