Simon RICHAUME - Bio

Pierre Richaume and his father Simon were among the first group brought to Ville-Marie by Maisonneuve to help with construction of the fort. The elder Richaume had signed a contract on May 2, 1644; for a period of three years, where he would be employed as a carpenter and wagoneer, for an annual salary of 100 livres. (Simon may also have been Pierre's older brother, since no age is given) After his contract was up, he stayed on in Montreal, but was killed on February 9, 1655, when a tree he had been clearing, fell on him and he was crushed to death. weallcamefromsomewhere/ Kebec/ marthe_arnu.html
