A Canadian Family

First Nations, French Canadians & Acadians

Golden Lake I.R. | Algonquin (1921)


This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in Eastern Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames carried by Aboriginal (or part Aboriginal) individuals in the 1901 and 1911 census for the eastern provinces of Canada. Note: There are regular updates including external links (e.g. maps, encyclopedia) and added information (e.g. specific tribal affiliations). The companion series Index: Native – First Peoples – Metis [Canadian Marriage Extracts]  – contains many of the same surnames as well as others.



1. To reach the original census records for the district named below, you can click on the External Links at the bottom of the post.

2. You can also click on many of the individual surnames to reach that listing in one of the census records (usually 1901 or 1911).

3. Surnames highlighted in orange also appear in the Marriage Records (although often spelled differently).

  1. Memory of a man from the Golden Lake community came to me and a debt of thanks is due him. His name was Steve Benoit. We were young men back then, both working for an outfit called Gorden Mulligan Construction. We worked together building culverts and other tasks in the construction of the Vars Limoges section of 417 highway. Steve decided one rainy day when work was called off that we should go swimming in a pond that was due to be drained to install a culvert. Steve operated a crane for that company and he brought his crane to the edge of that pond and raised the boom over it so we could swing from the cable hanging from it and dive into the pond. Steve was a good swimmer and was enjoying himself and invited me to try it. I was not too confident but tried it anyway and began drowning in the nine foot deep water. Without hesitation Steve dove in and rescued me from what would have been a sure death. Steve, if this message gets to you i want you to know you have never been forgotten.As we are both old men now, I pray we may both greet one another as brothers when we are collected by our Angels to be escorted to the Great Spirit. Kindest best wishes to you and also Stanley Sarazin.
