Biographical or Historical Data: Francis Vigo was born in the kingdom of Sardinia in 1740. Vigo resided in the Spanish port of St. Louis where he was active trading with the Indians until 1781. He moved to Vincennes, Indiana a short time before George Rogers Clark captured the fort. He was arrested by the British as a spy because of his sympathies to Clark and the Americans in the Revolutionary War. Vigo advanced large sums of money to feed and cloth Clark's army most of which was never repaid. He became a commandant of the militia of Vincennes in 1790 and was on of General William Henry Harrison's confidential messengers to the Indiana. Francis Vigo died in March 22, 1836.
