Edwin St. Aubin is justifiably proud of three centuries of family roots in Detroit. The St. Aubin family was among the original founding families of the city. To this day, there is a street running through downtown that bears the family name.
John Casse dit. St. Aubin was born in France, in 1659, and became a sailor. As a young man, he migrated to Canada. When Antoine De La Mothe de Cadillac was looking for men to establish Fort Pontchartrain at Detroit, John signed on. Cadillac and his party landed at Detroit on July 24, 1701, and laid the foundation of our present city. John Casse dit St. Aubin died at the age of 100, and was buried in Detroit on February 27, 1759.
