The Story of Two Tales

Updated on September 17, 2011

French Chateau

Legend One

In 1731, near the village of Songi in the district of Champagne, in France, a wild girl was captured.

At first the girl appeared to be black but after several baths, it was discovered that she was in fact fair skinned.

When first sighted she had been dressed in pieces of animal hide and had been excited having just clubbed a dog to death.

On capture she was taken to a Chateau belonging to the Viscount d’Epinoy. Here she displayed a hunger for raw meat.

She communicated in grunts and screams, showing no knowledge of French or of any other native language.

In the following years she had a number of benefactors and in between these benefactors she lived in convents.

She slowly learned French and was baptized Marie Angelique Memmie Le Blanc.

One of her benefactors would take her hunting, where she displayed a talent in running down and killing Rabbits.

Another benefactor wrote Memmie’s memoirs. Although Memmie could not remember much before her capture in Songi, the little she did remember seemed to indicate she was perhaps of Inuit descent.

She lived her life, often in poor health and in different places. In 1765 Memmie Le Blanc went with yet another patron, after which time nothing further was heard about her.

French Colonies 1700s

Legend Two

In 1716, Wisconsin was a French colony.

During a battle between the French and Amerindians, many children were left to become “feral” some of these were from the Native American Fox tribe.

These feral children were often sold as slaves.

In 1718 Madame de Courtemanche bought one of these children, a girl.

Madame loved the child as if she was her own daughter and took her with her when she moved to Labrador, another French Colony.

Following a battle between the Inuit and the French, Madame sailed for France in the vessel L’adventurier, accompanied by her charge.

Arriving in France on the 20th October 1721, they found that it was in the grip of a plague. The young girl was put into quarantine, supposedly for one year.

In November 1721, the young girl escaped the quarantine and disappeared into the woods of Provence.

She was not heard of again.

No Mystery

If either one of these two stories was to be read on its own, then it would appear to be a mystery. However when they are read together a sort of logic seems to appear.

Whilst put together, it would still make an interesting story, it would not have any mystery to it.

Our ancient ancestors left us plenty of mysteries or did they?

When and if we are able to link these stories, will the mysteries disappear and leave us with a logical and true picture of our history?

After all, the only thing that makes a mystery is the lack of all the facts.
