    ANTOINE.--- Dr. Branner recalled that Antoine Simon Le Page Du Pratz remarked in his Histoire de la Louisiane that there was "a silver mine in the country of the 'Cadodaquioux' or Caddo, located by a Portuguese named Antoine. Stream in Pike and Clark counties and town in Pike County."

    Du Pratz said the silver mine was on Red River (1), and there is no known evidence that the Portuguese ever came to the Antoine River. Local legend has it that the town was named for a dead Frenchman whose body was discovered on the bank of the nearby river.
    "That's me, on the beach side combing the sand, metal meter in my hand, sporting a pocket full of change"...... NOFX

    I collect military relics, mainly German and American, but interested in others as well, pre 1945 .. Always interested in adding to my collection
