After a 3 or 4 day journey by train, the group gathered supplies, wagons, and 36 oxen at Edmonton, which inspired the locals to dub them "The Bull Outfit". They set off north and west, across the top of Lesser Slave Lake, up to the Peace River Crossing, then south again to Grand Prairie and finally to their land on the shores of the Beaver Lodge River. The journey took a total of 3 months.

Philippe du Trieux was born circa 1588 at Roubaix, France.
He married Jaquemyne Noirett on 11 April 1615 at Amsterdam, Holland.
He married Susanna du Chesne in 1621 at Leiden, Holland.
He died on 8 September 1653 at New Amsterdam, New Netherland, possibly killed by Indians.
Philippe du Trieux was also known as Philip de Truy. Emigrated from Leiden, Holland to New Amsterdam in 1624. He was a appointed Court Messenger by Director Kieft in 1638. Received patent for lands in 'Smits Valley' in 1640. Ref: "Hudson and Mohawk Valleys", P. 272 - Truax - The patronymic De Trieux or Du Trieu is probably derived from the Village of Trieu (in southern Belgium). It is from De Trieux that the names Du Trieu, De Truy, Truax, etc. have been evolved. Individuals bearing the original form of the name abound in the Walloon Church Registers of Holland as early as 1584, wandering from city to city and from country to country, evidently in search of business employment. Anciently the Walloons were the race who inhabited parts of France, the Alps and the Danubian Valley. They eagerly embraced the Reformation, which was eventually crushed out by Charles V and Philip II, and hundreds of thousands of the Walloons sought refuge in neighboring countries, one hundred thousand exiled families settled in Holland. The Netherlands historian, Asher, declares that the whole greatness of Holland sprang from her hospitality to these exiled Walloon families.
Philippe was a dyer from Robey (Robaix) which was located in North France (Flanders in Philippe's day) and well-known for its dye works. It is not known who Philippe's parents were. An entry in the record of the Walloon Church at Leyden, Holladn says:
"April 22, 1601. Jacquemyne, widow of Philippe Du Trieu, received into Church of Leyden, by letter from Norwich, England"
It is suspected by some that this Jaquemyne and her deceased husband, Philippe Du Trieu, were the parents of Philippe Du Trieux who emigrated to New Netherland in 1624. However, no proof has surfaced yet to substantiate this theory. To support this theory, some suggest that the death of his mother was what prompted Philippe to move to Leyden from Amsterdam in 1617.
The deceased husband mentioned in the Leyden Church record seems to have come from Norwich, England. A colony of Flemish weavers had introduced the manufacture of woolens at Worsted, England which is about 13 miles from Norwich. This suggests that it is possible this suspected father of Philippe
was a worsted worker. It is further theorized that upon his death, his widow returned to the continent and her presence in Leyden may have brought her son there to live with her.
Ref: "The House of Truax" - Descendants of Philippe du Trieux, 1586-1653, edited by Howard S.F. Randolph from a manuscript by T. de Truax in the possession of the New York Genealogical and biographical Society, P. 336: Quote: "The date that Philippe du Trieux and his wife, Jacquemine Noiret became members of the church at Leydon is given as August 15, 1617, instead of October 1617, as given on P.209 in the NY Gen. & Biog. Record, Vol. LVII.
The important act of betrothal of July 17, 1621, settles for all time any controversy as to whether there were two different people by the name of Philippe du Trieux, as he is definitely mentioned as the widower of Jacquemyne Noiret, about to marry Susanna du Chesne. Her age is given as twenty years, so she was born about 1601. His age is given as thirty-four years so he was born about 1587." Unquote.
(perhaps both mother and daughter-in-law had the same first name?)
In any event, Phillipe did not stay long in Leyden. He was received into the Church at Leyden in October 1617 and by December 31, 1617 he was being received into the church at Amsterdam with a letter from Leyden. However, he was in Leyden long enough to come into contact with the future Pilgrims and surely the idea of emigrating to the New World was presented in a favorably light to him there. Philippe is thought to have returned to Leyden since it was the Leyden Church which granted him and his family letters of attestations on March 9, 1624 (as "pour Westinde" which meant he intended to go west) to present to his new church at his destination. Two and a half weeks after Philippe and his family received letters from their church (March 28, 1624), the colonists were to go to New Netherland met and were given instructions from the Van Rappard document (now in the Huntington Library in California). It is not known if Philippe and his family were among these. No passenger list of the voyage of "The New Netherland" is known to have survived but it is generally accepted that Philippe Du Trieux and his family were on board among the 30 families which were mostly Walloons.
The Captain of "The New Netherland" (Nieu Nederlandt) was Cornelis Jacobz May of Hoorn. They sailed in the beginning of March and went by the Canary Islands, steered toward the west coast where they gained a west wind which took them to the river called Rio De Montaagnes (River Mauretius). The ship sailed up to the Maykens 44 leagues. They built a fort named "Orange" which had 4 bastions on an island they called Castle Island. Wiley believes that all of the Walloons of the company settled on Long Island at Waal-Bogt (Wallon's Bay) which is now Wallabout. However, there is no definite account of the disposition of these families.
More people came in 1625 bringing tools and livestock. In May 1626 another band of colonists arrived along with Peter Minuit who had been given the power to be Governor and organize a government. He built Fort Amsterdam on the southernmost point of the island and bought the whole island of Manhattan from the Indians for about 60 guilders (or what is commonly accepted these days as being about $24.00).
Philippe was in New Amsterdam during Minuit's Administration (1624-1629). When he first came to New Amsterdam he built a house on Bever Craft (Beaver Street). This was one of the first (if not the first) house to be built on Bever Craft. He was appointed Court Messenger in 1638 by Governor Kieft (who became Governor in March 1638). The salary for the Court Messenger (or Marshall) was "two thirds as large as was received by the Magistrate". In 1640 he received a patent for land in Smits Vly (or Valley), although it is known that this parcel of land was in his possession as early as 1638. The land adjoined Secretary Van Tienhoven's farm and occupied partly by Fulton Market in later years. A map of New Amsterdam as it was in about 1644 shows a large tract of land on the east side of the island marked "land of Philip de Truye". It is assumed that Philippe was living on this land at Smith's Valley because of a contract he made with Claes Groen and Pieter Lievesen to graze their goats for a year at the cost of one guilder per year per goat. This contract was entered upon the Register of the Secretary of the Council. Philippe leased or contracted to sell this house to Nicholas Stilwel. In 1649 the records show Nicolas Stilwel promising to furnish Henry Bresar with palisades enough to fence the premises along the River Road and within two years to furnish enough to fence the other sides of th land. In consideration for which Bresar acknowledges that he "has taken off the hands of Nicolaes Stillwell the land and dwelling housein question". Bresar seems to have remained in possession of the place until 1653 when he built a new house a short distance beyond the ferry on some land which he had acquired ther and the former dwelling house of Philip De Truy, after one or two intermediate changes, was bought in August 1654 by Thomas Hall.
According to the Truax Family Group Record, Philippe and his second son, Philippe (born in 1619) were killed by Indians on 8 Sep 1653.
Philippe Du Trieux was murdered by Indians as was his son Philippe before September 8, 1653. Some believe that Indians were not the guilty parties. Philippe's exact date of death is not known. The records show that on September 8, 1653 "Carel Van Brugge, Pltf. vs. Isaac D'Foreest, Deft. as Vendue-Master of the personal estate of Pieter Cornelisen, mill-wright, demands payment of fl. 59.8 for goods purchased at public vendu. Deft. acknowledges having purchased the goods, but says, in the name of Philip D'Truy's widow, that her son Philip (who was also murdered) had earned fl.100 monthly wages of Pieter Cornelisen deceased, which are still due him. Deft. is ordered to prove at the next court day his demand against the State of the above-named Pieter Cornelisen deceased." On October 23, 1654, Susanna De Scheve, widow of Phillippe De Truwe, late Court Messenger at New Amsterdam, confers power of attorney upon her son-in-law Isaac De___.
Philippe could have been dead as early as March 16, 1651 when a certified copy of a note of Alexander Boyer was made in favor of Susanna Du Truy. It is doubtful that she would have had to conduct this business if her husband had still been living.
The Du Trieux surname has been corrupted to Truax, Truex, De Truye among other spellings in the records.

|Susanna du Chesne was born circa 1601 at Sedan, Lorraine, France. She married Philippe du Trieux in 1621 at Leiden, Holland. She died after 1654.|

She was born circa 1625 at New Amsterdam, New Netherland.
She married Isaac De Forest on 9 June 1641 at New Amsterdam, New Netherland.
She died on 9 November 1692 at Albany, NY.
Sarah du Trieux was also known as Sara Philips.
Isaac du Trieux was the son of Philippe du Trieux and Susanna du Chesne.
He was born circa 24 April 1642 at New Amsterdam, New Netherland.1
He married Maria Wilemse Brouwer, daughter of Willem Brouwer and Elisabeth Aerts Drinckvelt.
He died circa 1702 at Schenectady, NY.
Isaac du Trieux (Truax) was the progenitor of the Schenectady branch of the Truax family. He settled on the 'second flat' of the Mohawk River as early as 1670 (now the town of Rotterdam).
Isaac was among those who escaped the massacre by the French and Indians at Schenectady, and received "8 ells of pennestout and 40 ells of linen" as a refugee of that disaster.
"At various times in its early history, Schenectady suffered from the attacks of the French and the Indians. The most memorable of these attacks was in February, 1690. The causes which led to it were connected with the political changes in England, where the arbitrary king, James II., had been driven from the throne (November, 1688), and William and Mary had begun to reign (February, 1689). The great majority of the people on this side of the ocean favored the new order of things. With their support and in the name of the new sovereigns, the government of New York had been assumed by Jacob Leisler,a wealthy merchant and captain of the militia. The people of Schenectady were strongly Leislerian in their sympathies, and were bitterly opposed to those who had held office under King James. John Alexander Glen, the commander of the place and justice of the township, then residing at Scotia, was not allowed even to enter the village; and, contrary to his advice that a strict guard should be maintained, they left the gates unguarded except by images of snow, which they had placed there as sentinels.
Schenectady is said to have had at this time about 80 houses and 400 inhabitants. The village was mainly west of Ferry street, and was protected by palisades. There were two gates, one at the north end of Church street, the other at the south end, opening out to the Albany road. There was, also, near what is now the corner of Washington and Front streets, a fort garrisoned by 24 men. After the destruction of this fort, another one was built on the spot where now is the junction of Front, Ferry, and Green streets. In order to understand the circumstances connected with the attack on Schenectady, we must bear in mind that a portion of the Iroquois had been proselyted by Jesuit missionaries, who induced them to remove to Canada, where they settled at a place (a few miles above Montreal) called Caughnawaga, or Sault Saint Louis. It was under these circumstances that an expedition was sent by the French from Canada, with the intention of striking a blow at Albany or Schenectady. Of the various accounts, English and French, the most reliable appears to be the one written by Mons. de Monseignat, Comptroller-General of the Marine in Canada. The following extract from his report includes the most important part of the account.
"News arnved at Quebec of the success of the first party that had gone out against the English, and which had been organized at Montreal. It might have consisted of 210 men, to-wit: of 80 Indians of the Sault and the mountain, 16 Algonquins and the remainder Frenchmen. It was commanded by Lieutenants Le Moyne de Sainte Helene and Dailleboust de Mantet.
" Having taken their departure from Montreal, after a march of five or six days, they called a council to determine the course they should take, and the point they considered themselves in a condition to attack. The Indians demanded of the French what was their intention. Messieurs de Sainte Helene and de Mantet replied that they started in the hope of attacking Orange, if possible, as it is the capital of New York and a place of considerable importance, though they had no orders to that effect, but generally to act according as they should judge on the spot of their chances of success, without running too much risk. This appeared to the Indians somewhat rash. They represented the difficulties and the weakness of the party for so desperate an undertaking.
"As the Indians, who had perfect knowledge of the localities and more experience than the French, could not be brought to consent, it was determined to postpone coming to a conclusion until the party should arrive at the spot where the two paths separate-the one leading to Orange and the other to Corlard [Schenectady]. In the course of this march, which occupied eight days, the Frenchmen judged proper to diverge toward Corlard, according to the advice of the Indians, and that road was taken without calling a new council.
Nine days more elapsed before they arrived, having experienced inconceivable difficulties, and having been obliged to wade up to their knees in water and to break the ice with their feet in order to find a solid footing.
"At eleven of the clock at night, they came within sight of the town, resolved to defer the assault until two o clock of the morning. But the excessive cold admitted of no further delay. The town of Corlard forms a sort of oblong with only two gates, one opposite where our party had halted, the other opening toward Orange, which is only six leagues distant. Messieurs de Sainte Helene and de Mantet were to enter at the first, which was found wide open. Messieurs d'Iberville and de Montesson took the left with another detachment, in order to make themselves masters of that leading to Orange. But they could not discover it, and returned to join the remainder of the party. A profound silence was everywhere observed, until the two commanders, who separated after having entered the town, for the purpose of encircling it, met at the other extremity.
" The signal of attack was given Indian fashion, and the entire force rushed on simultaneously. M. de Mantet placed himself at the head of one detachment and reached a small fort where the garrison was under arms. The gate was burst in after a good deal of difficulty, the whole set on fire, and all who defended the place were slaughtered. The sack of the town began a moment before the attack on the fort. Few houses made any resistance. The massacre lasted two hours. The remainder of the night was spent in placing sentinels and in taking some rest. The house belonging to the minister [Rev. Peter Tassemaker] was ordered to be saved, so as to take him alive to obtain information from him; but as it was not known, it was not spared any more than the others. He was killed in it and his papers were burnt before he could be recognized.
"At daybreak some men were sent to the dwelling of Mr. Coudre [John Alexander Glen], who was major of the place, and who lived at the other side of the river. He was not willing to surrender, and put himself on the defensive with his servants and some Indians; but as it was resolved not to do him any harm, in consequence of the good treatment that the French had formerly experienced at his hands, M. d'Iberville and the Great Mohawk proceeded thither alone, promised hirn quarter for himself, his people and his property, whereupon he laid down his arms on their assurance, entertained them in his fort, and returned with them to see the commandants in the town.
"In order to occupy the Indians, who would otherwise have taken to drink and thus rendered themselves unable for defense, the houses had already been set on fire. None were spared in the town but one belonging to Coudre, and that of a widow who had six children, whither M. de Montigny had been carried when wounded. All the rest were burnt. The lives of between fifty and sixty persons, old men, women and children, were spared, they having escaped the first fury of the attack; also some thirty Iroquois, in order to show them that it was the English, and not they, against whom the grudge was entertained."
The French lost but two men at the attack on the town; but their return to Canada was attended with great hardships and the loss of 19 more men. Of the inhabitants of Schenectady, 60 were slain in the massacre, 27 were carried into captivity, one (or possibly more) escaped to Albany, and the remainder probably fled for refuge to their friends and neighbors who were settled along the river."
