Joseph GregoireX

Location: Port, Michigan

My name is Joseph Gregoire. I lived in Port, MN. Then I moved to Lake Linden, Michigan in 1867 to found the hamlet of Gregoireville. I became known by the French Canadians by encouraging immigrants of many French Canadians who worked at mills factories and lumber camps. I left a legacy of businesses for decades.
