Excerpt from The Story of Joncaire: His Life and Times on the Niagara

During these years, the American colonies of the rival powers were developing along widely divergent lines. France established her distant posts, throughout the lake and trans-alleghany region, her very energy weakening her for future defense. The English colonies, and New York in particular, devoted themselves more to developing the home territory. Both cajoled and bargained with the Indians, both exhausted themselves in fighting each other. It was the time when the slave trade was encouraged; when piracy ?ourished. But recently were the days when Captain Kidd and Morgan and Blackbeard and their kind sailed and they sailed; and the attention of New York's governors was divided between lawless and red-handed exploits on the seas, the quarrels of their legislative councillors, and the inter ference of the French in their reach for the fur trade.

Throughout these Dark Decades there is a figure in our regional history which, strive as we may, is at best but dimly seen. Now it stands on the banks of the Niagara, a shadowy symbol of the power of France. Now it appears in fraternal alliance with the Iroquois; and anon it vanishes, leaving no more trace than the wiliest warrior of the Sen ecas, silently disappearing down the dim aisles of his native forest. Yet it is around this illusive figure that the story of the Niagara centers for forty years.
