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.

    • Judy:
      My great grandfather was Israel Rice and I recently visited his grave in Gogama (last week). I was puzzled because he had a cross marking his grave and when I visited the site in the 1960s he was buried outside the Catholic graveyard beside Mary, who was inside the graveyard. Now it is a larger cemetary.
      My grandmother was Clara his youngest child.
      I’m also puzzled because I was not aware that he had a sister. I had understood he was an only child.
      How far back have you gone in your research? Are we related to the Rice boys captured in the early 1700s and brought back to Caughnawaga?
