Buried in the Isaac Blanchard family plot. She was Josephine Anse, member of the Chippewa Tribe.

There were two children born, Mary who married Isaac Blanchard, and Joseph. They inherited the Babbien claim. Josephine married, secondly, Jean B. LaJuenness.

24 BLANCHARD Isaac Jr.
March 20 1837 June 18 1859

The story is that fishermen from here went to the fishing grounds near Seul Choix, pronounced Shiss-wa by the French fishermen, as it still is. Seul choix is located on Lake Michigan. They set up housekeeping in small buildings. During a party some of the younger men drank too much and Isaac Blanchard made trouble at the Pond property. He was ordered off but refused to leave. In the encounter Pond shot and killed Blanchard. The trial was held in Mackinac County and Augustus Pond was freed, as the ruling was that he had a right to defend his property. This story has recently been publicized in news articles and this case set a precedent in law and is often quoted as the People vs. Pond.
