Pierre Navarre


Pierre Navarre is credited as the first Euro­American to settle in South Bend, establishing a post to trade with the local Potawatomi. Pierre marries a Potawatomi woman and they have seven children together. Pierre initially moves out west with the Potawatomi when they were removed in 1840, but returns to South Bend for the remainder of his life.
