1803 Inhabitants in Cape Girardeau County

The following names were heads of households in the Cape Girardeau District of the Louisiana Territory in 1803 at the time of the Louisiana Purchase by the United States from France. If your family name appears here, perhaps you are a descendant of these hardy frontier families that settled the area.

They undoubtedly experienced the uneasy feeling of unconfirmed Spanish Land grants that had to be proved with great difficulty to the United States Land Office. They certainly knew about the adventurers heading west—the Corps of Discovery—better known as the Lewis and Clark Expedition. They both began in 1803.

            Lewis and Clark and their crew stopped to visit Louis Lorimier at Lorimier’s house/trading post called the Red House on November 23, 1803 on their way to their winter camp on the Illinois side of the river at Camp DuBois opposite St. Louis. They spent 24 hours here and Meriwether Lewis wrote 4 pages in his diary about Cape Jerado, Louis Lorimier, Lorimier’s lovely daughter, and the events that transpired here.
