John Baptiste Flemmond (1770-1827), a French
Canadian trader, was one of the earliest Euro-American settlers in what became Erie County. In
1805, he established a trading post at "Flemmond's
Cove" on the east side of the Huron River about
two miles from its mouth. Flemmond spoke
French, English and several American Indian dialects, often serving as an intermediary between
new settlers and indigenous peoples. Flemmond
wed Elizabeth Pollock in 1811, in what is believed
to be the first settler marriage in the Firelands.
In the War of 1812, he served in the Northwest
Army as a guide and interpreter.
