TitleCeran St. Vrain
AbstractBiographical chapter of the book about Ceran Saint Vrain, or Ceran St. Vrain (1802-1870), a fur trader native to the area of Saint Louis, Missouri raised partly with the family of Bernard Pratte, Sr. He became a clerk with the Prattes' fur trading store in Saint Louis before progressing into the Santa Fe trade about 1824 with Francois Guerin. He later became one of the most prominent of far Western businessmen in association with the Bents, and some of his later Southwestern activities involved Milton Sublette, David Waldo, Antoine Robidoux, Charles Bent, Colonel Henry Dodge, Pierre Chouteau, Colonel S. W. Kearny, and other notables. On one trip he stopped at Fort Leavenworth with partner Charles Bent in 1846.
NotesSt. Vrain made numerous voyages from Missouri to New Mexico, including one "start[ing] westward with a party of forty-two men, driving twenty-six mule-drawn wagons from Ft. Osage [Fort Osage] during May 1826."
