Rene-Robert Cavelier

French surveyor who explored a lot of Mississippi River basin and claimed it for France. He was a Jesuit priest but still left the purchase, and afterwards became against it. Hearing natives’ stories of an excellent river known as Ohio, he went searching for it. He grew up alongside his sibling and never wedded. The lands he stated for France weren’t French for long–Thomas Jefferson bought them with the Louisiana Buy.
