"June 10, 1799, “This day married Charlotte Small”

"By the North West Company Post landing at Ile a la Crosse, with her Mother and sister Nancy in attendance, David Thompson married Charlotte Small. So began the long journey of their lives together. Charlotte was his devoted wife for 59 years, accompanying him on many of his travels and bearing him 13 children. I consider her a Canadian heroine."
