General note

Remains of a Hudson's Bay Company post at Pierre Grey lakes at Muskeg, about 34 km east of Grande Cache. The lake shows through the trees. Later Albert Siemons, researching H.B.C. records at Ottawa, states that for two years there was a Hudson's Bay post on the Little Smoky. Its whereabouts remain unknown. In July of 1975 an item was received from an Edmonton Bulletin of December 1890. It mentions D.E. Noyes and W. Cummings striking the Smoky about 18 miles north of White Mud Lake, at the site of an ancient abandoned Hudson's Bay post called the Grand Cache.<br><br>
