Genealogical Notes

Thomas A. Laforce married Josephine Armstrong on Sep 13th, 1940 in Kahnawake.

Note from Towanna Miller (Mohawk artist)

Warisose is the Mohawk word for Josephine. I know because my grandmother was also Josephine Delisle and everyone always called her Warisose (pronounce like Wa-re-so-say)
