DeClue (Duclos)

The book, The Time of the French In the Heart of North America 1673-1818, by Charles J. Balesi is an excellent source to understand the presence of France in Canada and the Mississippi River Valley. Their connection to Native Americans, Spain, and to the "Americans". I highly recommend this book and Carl J. Ekberg's book Colonial Ste. Genevieve: An Adventure on the Mississippi Frontier

I have found variations in the spelling of DeClue. Some are Duclos, Ducloss, Duclo, and Ducloix.
