Jean Baptiste Karontarirhon Stacey & Rosine Rice of Caughnawaga/Kahnawake (1/4)
Query from Melissa:
Hello! I am also looking for relatives. I’ve got a small paper trail together, but not much beyond that.
My grandfather was born in Kahnawake & was Mohawk Indian. His name was William Paul Stacey (born 7/15/20) later changed to Guy Paul Stacey. His father’s name was William Stacey (born 10/4/1895) not sure of the middle name but he was also Mohawk Indian). He was married to Lena Little (not Indian). William’s parents were Jean B Stacey & Rosina Rice.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Melissa – I’m only back in town for a few days, so I’m just passing on what I could find really quickly and we can take a closer look in a few weeks time.
