  • Misc.: 
  • 1.  Alternate spellings of Boucher include Bushey and Bushie.
  • 2. A formally recognized line of Ontario Metis Bouchers descends from Joseph Boucher and Nanette Deschamps, through their offspring: Luke Boucher (m. Jane Mary), Paul Boucher (m. Josephine Gabakade & Anastasia Mary Ogidtabanens), Thomas Boucher (m. Catherine), Ann Boucher (m. Francis Dupand & Frank Larose). Joseph and Nanette were recorded in the 1881 census  under the surname Bouchee 
  • 3.  (excerpt) “Jean Baptiste Boucher “first settled on lot No. 15, concession 16, Tiny; removed to lot No. 17, concession 17, still occupied by his widow and son, Narcisse Boucher. He was born in Quebec. His family connections include that noted branch of Jean Baptiste Boucher de Chambly, a grandson of M. de Chambly, the original grantee in 1672, who was killed in an Italian campaign. He died at the age of seventy one years, and is buried at Lafontaine.” [Source: Drummond Island Voyageurs, Ontario Historical Society] 3. I’ve found Boucher spelled as Bushey or even Bushier in some records.   
  • 4. The 1885 North-West Resistance by the Metis and the Cree, Kainai, Piikani, Saulteaux and Siksika peoples took place against a backdrop of starvation, broken treaties and encroachment by new settlers in Saskatchewan and Alberta. The resistance fighters eventually lost and Canada’s federal government asserted its control over the area.   Many Metis Bouchers were involved in the Resistance including: Caroline Boucher (m. Louison Sayer, Jr.), Charles Eugene Boucher (m. Helene Letendre), Eva Boucher (m. James Ward), Francois Boucher (m. Eliza, a Dene woman), Francois Boucher (Jr. & Sr.), Jean Baptiste Boucher (Jr. & Sr.), Marie Levina Boucher (m. Mathias Parenteau), Marie-Marguerite Boucher (m. Maxime Lepine), Rose Boucher (m. Moise Bremner), Salomon Boucher (m. Rose Marie Ouellette), William Pierre Boucher    [Source: Veterans and Families of the 1885  Northwest Resistance, Lawrence Barkwell, Louis Riel Institute].
