  • Misc.: –  1. These Solomons are recognized by the Metis Nation of Ontario. The line begins with the guide William Solomon (of Montreal, Quebec) and his three wives wives Agibicocoua, Marguerite Johnson and an un-named woman. This is the first generation of married Solomon descendants: Angelique Solomon (Thomas Landrigan and James Murphy), Ezekiel Solomon (m. Louisa Link), Henry Solomon (n. Marie Ogimakwi and Louise Laronde), Jessie Solomon (m. Colbert Amyot and Charles Rousseau), Lewis Solomon (m. Mary Unknown Surname), Marguerite Solomon (m. Joseph Lamorandiere), Marie Louise Solomon (m. Louis Desaulnier), Rosette Solomon (m. Jean Baptiste Sylvestre), Sophie Solomon (m. Benj Dusanque). 2. More information about the Ontario Metis Solomons: “Lewis Solomon was the youngest son of William Solomon, who was born in the closing years of the last century, of Jewish and Indian extraction. This Wm. Solomon lived for a time in Montreal, but entered the service of the North-West Company and drifted to the “Sault’, and Mackinaw. Having become expert in the use of the Indian tongue, he was engaged by the British Government as Indian interpreter at the latter post during the War of 1812. During his sojourn at Mackinaw he married a half-breed woman named Miss Johnston, the union resulting in a family of ten children, of whom, at the first writing of these notes, Lewis was the sole survivor, but joined the majority March 9th, 1900. Lewis very humorously claimed that in his person no less than five nationalities are represented, though he fails to tell us how. As the Indian nature appeared to predominate, and since his father was partly German, his mother must have been of very mixed nationality.” [Source: Drummond Island Voyageurs, Ontario Historical Society].
