Notes for MARION:
The Man Who Danced Himself to Death"
All the elements of romance, joy and tragedy entered into the account of a famous pioneer wedding which the writer of this article secured while helping the Women's Canadian Club gather the material for their widely-read book. Women of Red River. I interviewed a schoolmate of the bride, Elise Marion, daughter of Blacksmith Narcisse Marion of Norwood, who married Commodore Norman W. Kittson, millionaire head of the Red River Navigation Company's fleet of sternwheel steamers which served Winnipeg in and through the early days.
Commodore Kittson was nearly sixty when he came seeking a bride at the house of Narcisse Marion. Elise Marion was hardly twenty. Bridegrooms of pioneer days were often elderly; but Kittson, who had made a fortune in the fur trade and another fortune in the steamboat business, had since he was a young man carried a weight of responsibility which, had brought early wrinkles and the aspect of age.
"What do you want with that old, old man?" asked the girls who had gone to school with Elise, as they gazed at the Commodore's wrinkles. And Elise would reply, "I will not answer you now; but when Norman and I are married, I will invite you to be our guests at our house in St.Paul."
Everyone attended the wedding -- everyone from both sides of the Red River. Host Narcisse Marion had planned to give his guest what he knew from long experience would make a special hit. He was to dance the Red River jig, in which Narcisse himself was the champion of the whole Red River Settlement.
The Red River jig got into your blood when you were merely watching it. Much more did it get into you blood when you were dancing it. Most of all did it kept your bloodstream racing when you were a champion dancer and were dancing all the other dancers down.
When you were dancing the Red River jig, you danced with all your heart. You double-danced, each foot doing a dance of its own. Good dancers, like Narcisse Marion, could do this, although for a novice it was almost as hard as to look, two ways at once.
You led you rivals on. You worked rhythms into your elbow-movements, your hip-swings, the intoxicating time-beat of your heels on the floor. Narcisse Marion was a past-master at leading his rivals on, making them
work.. Rival after rival was danced down, but Narcisse kept the floor until he was the last on his feet. Then he eneded up with a flourish, a special flourish, and brought his feet to rest. One of the girls fetched a rocking chair. She noticed that he dropped into it, rather than sitting down springly as usual.
For the first time in his life, he was glad the jig was through. In the closing steps of the dance, there had come a sudden feeling like a hand pinching his chest.
Soon he got up from the chair and said: "I'm going up to lie down for a spell. Go on; enjoy yourselves. I'll be down soon." But Narcisse Marion, Red River jig champion, did not come down. Elise went up. Her cry brought everyone up. Narcisse had danced himself to death.
Elise Kittson, in her grand home on Summit Avenue, St. Paul, was a hostess of hostesses when her Norwood friends came to visit her. She and the Commodore lived on congenially till, in the late eighties he died in a sleeping car enroute to Chicago.
(From Gail Morin) The above is a wonderful myth. Narcisse Marion died in 1877 about thirty years after his daughter's wedding. And Norman Kittson was an elderly 33.
Notes for LOUIS AYOTTE:
Louis Roy owned a store, cafe, and pool hall in Ile a La Crosse. It was the local gathering place. Raymond Ayotte remembers him building barges and hauling frieght and selling the wood when they arrived up to Ile a la Crosse..
