On this day in 1675,  Fr. Jacques Marquette (1636-1675) dies near Ludington, Michigan, at the age of 39. After the famous voyage down the Mississippi that he made in 1673 with Louis Joliet, Marquette vowed to return to the Indians he’d met in Illinois. He became ill during that visit in the spring of 1675 and was en route to Canada when he passed away. His diary of the trip is online in the Wisconsin Historical Society’s American Journeys collection.
