LOUIS ANNANCE

Louis Annance was for more than thirty years a famous character around Moosehead Lake in Piscataquis County, Maine. At one period of his life he was chief of the once powerful St.
Francis tribe of Indians. He was born August 25, 1794, where is now the town of St. Francis, county of Yamaska, in the Province of Quebec. He received Catholic tuition from the Jesuits in his
neighborhood, who subsequently procured his admission to a school in Hanover, New Hampshire, where he was prepared for a college course; but as he was about to enter college, the war of 1812 was
declared, and he was summoned to his home in Canada to serve with his tribe under the British government. He was engaged in that war three years. His brother Noel had command of all the
Indian forces during that war and both were noted for their bravery and daring in battle. He died at is home in Greenville, Maine, December 15, 1875.
