Fulgence Roy Losier

QUERY


Seeking family info:
Fulgence Roy DOB -May 16, 1830 Cacouna
Maliseet First Nations??
Any info you can provide
Thanks,
Odette

INFORMATION


I see several records at BMS2000 – nothing to answer your specific question but the different dat spellings might help with your search –

Fulgence Roy Losier was born on May 8th, 1830, St. Georges Parish, Cacouna, Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec. He was baptized on May 16th, 1830.

His father was Fulgence Roy Losier and he was a farmer. (In case you’re unaware, Losier can be Lauzier).

The mother was Fany Antille.

The godparents were Antoine Roy Losier and Marguerite Gagnon.

There is a marriage three years previously between a Fulgence Roy and Stephanie Anctil (Source: BNS2000) which I presume to be the parents of your Fulgence.

Fulgence Roy (son of Clement Roy and Marie-Anne Gagnon) and Stephanie Anctil (daughter of Louis Anctil and Perpetue Ouellet) were married on January 30th, 1827 in Ste. Anne Parish in Ste.-Anne-de-la=Pocatiere, Kamouraska, Quebec.

Erratum: August Werner Schellenberg Metis [self-identified Metis] Actor

ERRATUM

Inter left this message –

I almost hate to ask, but is there any documentary evidence that August Schellenberg had Indigenous ancestry?

It’s looking like his mother was an English immigrant. See this page (especially the comments section).
https://ethnicelebs.com/august-schellenberg.

 

Thanks so much for your comment, Iter.

When I first wrote this post in 2014, I accepted at face value that when someone proclaimed indigenous ancestry AND  it was being touted on so many mainstream sites including the National Arts Council – then it must be true. That was a serious mistake and I apologize for adding to that misconception.

I did some new searches this morning at BM2000 and I find no traces of his mother that would allow me to see First Nations ancestry. Tt doesn’t mean it isn’t true – but I see no evidence of it. Continue reading
