Louis Vieux

Kansas State Historical Marker
      Of Potawatomi Indian and French ancestry, Louis Vieux was an early resident of this area. Probably born near Lake Michigan, Vieux, with a portion of the Potawatomis, moved to Iowa and later Indianola, Kansas, near Topeka. In 1847 or 1848, Vieux moved to this area of what became Pottawatomie County, located on the Oregon Trail near the Vermillion river crossing. The Vieux family with its seven children, lived in a log cabin and Vieux built and operated a toll bridge over the river.
