    Notes 
    • Francois Valle was born on Jan 2, 1716 in Beauport, Quebec, Canada. He was christened on the Jan 3rd. Francois came to Ste Genevieve in 1749 and founded the Valle Mining Company. Francois was born to Charles La Valle and Genevieve Marcoux. All of the Valle's from Ste Genevieve descend from Charles and Genevieve.

      Valles' Mines started when Francois Valle came here from Quebec in 1749 to buy lead from the Indians and stayed to mine. 251 years later, the Valle Mining Company* labors on in a Reclamation Project of the 8 square miles of lands. Mining has not been all bad, leaving us with 10-acre lakes and miles and miles of roads, wagon trails and paths in a huge forest.

      The forest has grown up around Valles' hand-dug mines, the Rocky Digs. They now sit in the 240 acre Wildlife Preserve Area #1. Thanks to Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic (636-343-6200, Fenton, MO) allowing us to be a Release Site for rehabilitated wildlife, we have been able to restore the native populations of red foxes, raccoons, ground hogs and possums. This spring around the lakes in Preserve Area #2, flocks of 55 turkeys were spotted and Canada geese and Blue Heron have become regulars. The Preserves are designated No-Hunt zones and open all year. Patrolled regularly, the other 3000 adjoining acres close during deer season.

      Valle Mining Company, a Missouri corporation. With former mills and works in Valles Mines, Missouri, the property now serves as a tree farm.

      They lived in a log cabin built for them as a wedding present by her father Leonard Billeron who was at the time Mayor of Kaskaskia. This log cabin (14115 Valles Mines School Road) currently houses, some 259 years later and still in use, our "Lost History Museum".
