Reader Query: Martineau / Clement / Boucher / Martineau | Metis Descent?

Hi I was wondering if you would have anything Métisse or even native for my great grandma Cecile Martineau married to Moise Clement. Her Mother was Albina Boucher and father was Israel Martineau and even higher up was Philomène Payet Dit St Amour and Father was Louis Boucher.

My grandpa Leo son of Cecile says that his grandma Albina was from the band Kitchi Sipi and we are Algonquin and from the Mattawa/Ottawa River and Environs living near Maniwaki Québec. And Albina always spoke either Cree or Ojibwa and my grandpa Leo could not understand his own grandmother.

Hello,

This couple might be a possibility –

Michel Ata8akon (son of Gervais Tsioniatarison and Mare Ate8ennine)  and Marie Anne Tioha8ison (daughter of Louis A8ennatase and Cecile Tsia8enion) married on October 30th, 1871 in St. Regis Parish in Akwesasne (Huntingdon, Quebec). A note on the marriage record (at Family Search) states that Pe and Me (I presume father and mother)were  from Sault St Louis.

Mohawks at Home on “High Iron” | Daibo (Fallen Sky), Jocks

 

Mohawks at Home on “High Iron” by Edward Nickerson

New York

 

The Mohawk Indian stood perched high above the ground, his golden brown skin shining in the morning sun, his black eyes scanning the horizon like a hunter in search of game. Then he spoke: Hand me that wrench, will you?”

The time – any day of the week. The place – midtown Manhattan. The Indian? It could have been Mike Daibo, better known among the Mohawks as Tironionie or “Fallen Sky”. Continue reading

Racicot/Monchamp Query

Reader Query

Evelyn/Madison,

My paternal grandmother was Jeanne Alice Ainee Racicot, born 15 May 1899, died 14 April 1926. She is reported to have been from St Constant, Quebec, and met my grandfather in Boston, MA sometime around 1924 or 1925. Her father was Louis George Racicot, of Boucherville, born 1 June 1868 and died 5 June 1888.

Im interested in determining if my paternal grandmother had any brothers and sisters (likely) if any of them might be still alive, or any of their children. In short, our family tree is undeveloped at this branch and I am interested completing it.

Sure would appreciate the help.

Bob

 


Hello Bob,

I have no connections to this family however I’ve listed some information below to help you in search. Remember to check back often or “subscribe” to the comments in case someone else answers your query.

 

1.)

Jeanne Alice Aimee Racicot was born on May 15th, 1899 and baptized on May 16th, 1899 in St. Constant Parish in Laprairie, Quebec. Her parents were Louis Georges Racicot and Rose Anna Montchamp. Her godparents were Anthime Vinet and Rose Vinet.

Jeanne’s father Louis-Georges Racicot was the son of Louis Racicot and Flavie Barbeau. A couple named Louis and Flavie Racicot can be found in the 1901 census as well as

2.)

In the 1901 census  there is a record that seems to be for Jeanne Racicot with her parents and siblings, as well as her paternal grandparents next door.
