Je suis contente de rencontrer un’autre Lagacé!
J’ai visité ton site “Nos ancetres” http://nosancetres.monblogue.branchez-vous.com/ma_page.php et j’ai trouvé tres interessant ton idée de te concentrer sur une place (Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines, Quebec). Malheureusement, ce type de discipline me manque complètement!

Merci d’avoir répondu à mon message. Je cherche toujours les ancêtres Patry, pas facile,… C’est au tour de Charles Patry marié à Célanie Filion de me donner des problèmes, Si vous avez de l’Info. ce serait très appréécié, merci gros!!!
I am looking for information about Marie Louise Deneaul, born 1838 in Caughnawaga, Roussillon, Quebec. She was either my great-grandfather’s (Maxim Raymond) sister-in-law or his mother. (Pihpe’ or who gave the info for his death certificate may have skipped a generation). The Raymonds and ancestors lived for generations in the La Prairie – St. Constant area.
I have a picture of him and some of his children on my Facebook page. He said he was part Native; but that it was his great-grandmother.
Great site! I found the surname Laura on your Kahnawake surname list. I have been searching for my 3rd g grandmother Margaret Leroy. She married francis Labreche, he was French but raised around Montreal. Family tradition says that there were labreches (also spelled LaBrash) just south of Montreal. I have a tin-type(metal) photo of 2 women, one of them looks native. Since I can’t find any info on Margaret leroy I wondered if she may have been native as there are family traits that indicate this. When I found the surname Laura on your site it made me wonder if she could have come from there although the timeline of my Margaret was c. 1800. Do you know how i could find more info on this?
Richard: I have been searching for information on Peter Andrew Labrash born 1879 in Ontario. His parents are listed as John Labrash and Jane Pemebrton. We have received some information that leads us to think that he was adopted or taken in by this family as he spoke French and looked Native while his siblings spoke only English and did not look at all like him. While searching I came across some information regarding Francis Labrash b. 1789 and Margaret Leroi b. 1790. Did you ever find the genealogy information that you were looking for in 2010 on the A Canadian Family website? Would this information be of value to you?

I have been researching the Labrash tree of Francis and Margaret Labrash for some years. They are my 3x Grandparents.
In my search I have come across John and Jane (Pemberton) Labrash. I have son Peter ALLAN Labrash, born 5 Mar 1879, Murray Twp, Northumberland Co, Ontario (source: Ontario Archives, Births, Microfilm MS929-39, Reg# 020870). He married Harriet Gould (b-1881, Simcoe Co,Ontario) on 31 March 1904 in Parry Sound District, Ontario. (source: Ontario Archives, Marriages, Microfilm MS932-115, Reg# 014825).
All the best in your research.

Thank you Robert – I have that information as well – but nothing more on John Labrash or Jane Pemberton, which is why I have started to search outside of Ontario. I have been very lucky finding information for my mother’s mother’s side of her family (Gould), and my husband’s family (Stevens and Henderson) but have hit a brick wall with my grandfather Peter Andrew Labrash’s parents. – He and my grandmother (Harriet) lived in Parry Sound and Hamilton. Thanks again. Deborah

I seem to recall having info on John and Jane continuing to live in Northumberland and Hastings Co. I think Jane died about 1895 and John remarried. I think he died in Campbellford, Northumberland Co. I recall some Labrashes buried in the two cemeteries there and I jotted it down, but since John (as yet) not part of my tree, I just filed it away. All this info is from emails sent to me over the years, and i have made no attempt to source it and prove it. I will be in Campbellford next weekend and will take a walk again through the area. But i do believe John and Jane stayed in the area.

Thank you for this great information, Robert. At a certain point if you have several pieces of information and you want to, I can publish it as a post so that it’s more visible.
This is just an additional comment I need to make. It was part of our culture to give any one who joined our community ( in the early 1600’s to 1700’s and as late as the 1800’s) a native name. Jesuit priests also received native names. The is well documented in several studies done on Native American People. Some who were adopted by the mohawk nation, became mohawks regardless of their nationality. They were not mohawk, but citizens of the Mohawk Nation. Just as Quebec increases it’s population by inviting different nationalities to gain more Quebeckers. As A Mohawk, I can honestly say that we are not allowed to do this. The Governments probably fear we may rise up and over take them. In the early 1600’s our nation was well over 30,000 in just several villages alone. By the early 1700’s we were almost extinct with several thousand of us left. Mostly scattered throughout Northern Newyork, ontario and Quebec. Small pox infested blankets were given in trade for furs, to the women and children. As well as the firearms that were used to intimidate and kill almost all of us. It’s depressing when you think about it. For an accurate account of life with the Jesuits, read Darren Bonaparte’s A Lily Among The Thorns. Darren is a Mohawk from Akwesasne.
Pour débuter , donnez-moi l’opportunité de vous démontrer ma gratitude pour chacune des super connaissances que j’ai retrouvées sur cet imposant site web .
Je ne suis pas convaincue d’être au meilleur section mais je n’en ai pas trouvé de meilleur.
Je proviens de Saint marys, États-Unis. J’ai 48 années et j’élève deux super enfants qui sont tous âgés entre 4 et 13 ans (1 est adopté). J’adore beaucoup les animaux et je tempte de leur offrir les accessoires qui leur rendent la vie plus festive .
Je vous remercie d’avance pour toutes les très pertinentes débats dans le futur et je vous remercie de votre compassion pour mon français moins que parfait: ma langue maternelle est le portuguais et je tempte de m’enseigner mais c’est très compliqué !

Hello I am helping my mother in law research her family we have a photo of 2 ladies together we know the one is her great grandmother Emma Canadian and the other looks to be about a year younger and we were told it was her sister Eliza I have been searching hi and low hoping you can help
So glad to find you – both because we may have some of the same ancestors and because I also enjoy using postcards to fill out a family history! I look forward to exploring your site even more in the future. Thanks for the extent of your work and your dedication to sharing!
What a wonderful site to stumble upon. Any suggestions as to where to start researching my wife’s tree. She is a Lacroix dit Langevin who as far as we know have lived in the Lac des Deux Montagnes area. Her dad gave her some basic info before he passed away, back as far as his grandfather. Are there online sources available ?
I came across your site while researching my family tree. My great-grandfather, Joseph LaPointe (born 1853) married a woman named Mary Jane Lagace, and I’m curious if she may have been a relative of yours. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Query answered – will publish soon.

I too am of the descendants of Francois Larocque and Marguerite Caplan. I’m looking for the birth or death of John Larocque, son of Charles Larocque and Margaret McKinnon. Charles was the son of Francois Larocque. I miss the information that can say that John was Indian. Please if anyone has information regarding this, it would be greatly appreciated and also might have a chance to meet relatives or descendants from afar. Here are my offspring. I do not know either if Charles Larocque with other children, if it is available I would like to know more
Francois Laroque and Marguerite Caplan
Charles Larocque and Margaret McKinnon
Jean Larocque Larocque and Bridgitte
Brigitte and Michel Larocque Mallet
Claire and Michel Larocque Ache (Hache)
Georges Larocque (my grandfather) married twice. Artemisia is the first and the second is LeBouthillier Louise Larocque (she is my grandmother)
Larocque and Ida Pierre.J. Chiasson
Thank you Réjeanne Chiasson

It is in the Evelyn in Montreal series, which means that someone had asked for this information. The query is from someone called Marlaina (possibly a pseudonym) and would have been made at Genforum or Rootsweb.
I presume that person was another descendant of this couple?
Hope this is helpful,

What a great site! Thank you for all of the information. Is there a link to the 1911 census in a searchable format?
