J. H. St. John de Crevecouer

a.k.a. Michel-Guillaume-Jean de Crevecoeur

Author Code: AJHC

Born: Jan. 31, 1735 - Caen, France

Died: Nov. 12, 1813 - Sarcelles, France

A Frenchman by birth, Crevecoeur, spent time with Montcalm in Canada as an officer and map maker, explored the Ohio and Great Lakes regions, became a citizen in New York and became a farmer. Married to a Loyalist when the Revolution broke out, Crevecoeur was torn between friends on both sides. He was imprisoned in an British army prison and sailed for England in 1780 with his son. In 1782, he published his Letters From an American Farmer, a series of 12 essays, which was an immediate success and brought him much fame. He was appointed consul in 1784 and returned to America to find his wife dead and his other children scattered. He organized a packet service between France and America, wrote numerous essays on botany, medicine and agriculture. Returning to France in 1790, Crevecoeur published his second work on America, Voyage dans la haute Pennsylvanie et dans l'Etat de New York, in three volumes in 1801. He remained in Europe thereafter.
