A historical marker in front of the remaining wing of the home in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan where Schoolcraft grew up and lived over half her life. As you can see from this marker and from the marker pictured below, Jane Schoolcraft and her mother, Ozhaguscodaywayquay, like many other influential women, have often been reduced to a mere footnote in a story of men, in this case the story of Schoolcraft’s father John Johnston and her husband Henry Rowe Schoolcraft.
