Jacques La Ramee

Date of Death : Jan 1, 1821

Jacques La Ramee was a French-Canadian fur trader who lived in what is now the U.S. state of Wyoming after moving there in 1815. In 1820 or 1821, he left for the season to go trapping along what is now known as the Laramie River. After failing to arrive at the next year's rendezvous, a search party was sent out to locate him. Accounts of his disappearance vary; some stories conclude that he was killed by Arapaho Indians, which they vigorously denied. A number of sites in Wyoming are named for him, including the Laramie River, the city of Laramie, Fort Laramie, Laramie Peak, and Laramie County, Wyoming.
