Francois Valle (1716-1783) was born in Beauport, Canada and immigrated to Upper Louisiana as a penniless common laborer sometime during the early 1740s. Engaged in agriculture, lead mining, and the Indian trade, he ultimately became the wealthiest and most powerful individual in Upper Louisiana, although he never learned to read or write.
