Interestingly enough, Rene-Robert Cavelier was one of the first European explorers to make alliances with Native Americans in Arkansas. He was also one of the first to attempt to establish a permanent settlement. He was also one of the first to explore the Mississippi and Gulf of Mexico. His journeys were not without their share of snafus. Fortunately, his family was not among them. A hefty land grant was awarded to him at a rapids in 1667.
For many modern day readers, the name of Rene-Robert Cavelier will evoke images of a man with a beard and a sneer. The truth is that the Frenchman was a very accomplished gentleman, despite his prickly exterior. He made a lot of good friends along the way.
He also made a lot of enemies. There is some debate as to whether or not he actually visited the states he claimed. The best proof of his existence is the plethora of land grants he claimed to have wrangled.

This marked her as a creature of unusual gifts. However, she was often treated by those who knew only her appearance. Those who knew her real character were less lenient.
Fuller’s father was deeply religious. She was also educated in Greek mythology and Italian opera. Her father forbade her from reading sentimental novels. She had many friends, including Eliza Farrar and Fanny Kemble. She was introduced to social circles by Eliza Farrar. Her mother, Margaret Crane Fuller, married Timothy Fuller, Jr., and had a daughter named Sarah Margaret Fuller.
