GARNIER, Charles, clergyman, born in Paris in 1605; died in Canada, 7 September, 1649. He entered the Society of Jesus, 7 December 1624, and was sent to Canada in 1636. The rest. of his life was spent on the Huron mission. He was stationed at Etharita, a settlement of the Tontiate Hurons, when an attack was made on it, 7 September, 1649, by the Iroquois. The town was defenseless, as the Tontiate braves had gone in another direction to meet the enemy. The Iroquois set fire to it and slaughtered every one they met. Meanwhile, Father Garnier was everywhere exhorting and baptizing the wounded, regardless of danger. At last he fell mortally wounded, but, seeing a wounded Tontiate some paces from him, he rallied his strength, dragged himself to the wounded man, and, while giving him absolution, fell dead on his body. As a Huron scholar Father Garnier had no superior among the whole body of his fellow-missionaries, with the exception of Brebeuf.
