If Half King's story is true (it seems unlikely) it would be understandable why he might dislike the French. Check out - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanacharison

Thanks for the link Gorges, interesting. Though I agree with you, unlikely. Which does not mean that he may not have been made to think that they ate his Father.

My historic romance novel has a chapter on French persons traveling the Nemacolin Indian trail to Redstone (Brownsville), Pennsylvania and traveling the Monongahela River to the Ohio River, ending up being the first settlers of Gallipolis in 1790. These French came here through the Scioto Associates.
