On the Frontier: The Jefferson Toulouse Family follows eight generations of the Toulouse family, starting with an overview of their origins in southwestern France. Two generations later, a young soldier was sent to Quebec to protect settlers and fight the Iroquois. He survived and his children and grandchildren explored the new land while working to become one of the most successful voyageur fur trading families. Jefferson Toulouse was born on September 15, 1805 near frontier Detroit. He married another descendent of French origin and their surviving ten children all married and found success throughout the American West, helping to build the country in the early 1900s. It's an epic story of challenge and change, progress and peril, lived by everyday heroes struggling to make a better life for their children.

About the Author
Bevc, Frank: - Over thirty years of genealogy and family history research has provided a strong foundation for relating the impact of national and global events on families. Frank's family histories provide a unique blend of biographical information and the timeline of history. The stories tell how everyday heroes react to extraordinary events. We hope you find them interesting: Puritans, Patriots and Pioneers explores Colonial and Revolutionary War families and their children and grandchildren's westward migration. Sons of Ardore traces life in a small Italian village, their response to an epidemic and one man's immigration to America. Children of the Mirna Valley tells the story of a ethnic group's resistance to assimilation; and, for one family, eight of eleven children traveling to America in search of a new life while three children remained to experience the ravages of war and the joy of seeing a new country formed. Most recently, On the Frontier tells the founding of New France and conflicts between settlers and the Iroquois as well as one family's evolution through ten generations.
