News: Welcome to our new site! All data from the old site (including photos) have now been uploaded (whew!)

I will now begin granting limited access to users that have requested it, however all edits will be reviewed by either Vernon CHARTIER or myself for the time being until we're sure the user knows how the new system works (and he and I are still learning it too!).

NOTE: The maps feature does not seem to work well on GOOGLE Chrome, so use the internet browser bundled with Windows.

    Personal Information    |    Event Map    |    All    |    PDF

    • Name Martin CHARTIER 
      • Chartiers Creek near Pittsburgh, PA is named after Martin, who ran a trading post there Martin Chartier and his brother Pierre were members of La Salle‚Äôs expeditions to discover a water route to China. He and his brother later formed their own trading association. Martin later hooked up with a small band of Shawnee Indians, probably on the Wabash River. Martin and these Shawnees can be found at various times in almost every state east of the Mississippi River. In about 1692 Martin and his band of Shawnee show up in Maryland, but eventually settle in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania near the Susquehanna River. William Penn used Martin Chartier as an agent in his treaties with various Indian tribes.
