Plat of the Town of St Louis with all the houses. On March 10th, 1804. Prepared by Frederick L. Billou.
note: J. Thomas Scharf's History of Saint Louis City and County, From the Earliest Periods to the Present Day: Including Biographical Sketches of Representative Men. Vol. I . Philadelphia: Louis H. Everts and Co, 1883. Chapter VII. Topography, lists Paul Primeau as "Paul Trimo":
"Block 31, northwest quarter, Paul Trimo, small house of posts, by Thibault, about 1770".

note the later Ponca family names nearby too: Papin, Roy, Cerre, ...

"Such was St. Louis of 1804, when it passed to the possession of the United States.

[The term "house of posts," which is so often used above, illustrates the French mode of building log houses as contradistinguished from the English. The latter lay the logs horizontally, joining them at the corners; but the French used the logs vertically, planting the bottom of the post in the ground like a palisade, and joining them by weatherboard ties, just as described by Dr. Simpson in another page in this chapter.]"

house of P Trimo = Paul Primo = Primeau
