Monet Belhumeurs in the West | Metis Connections | Pt.2/2

Your ancestor Francois Monet dit Belhumeur (m. Marie-Charlotte Jarret dit Beauregard) had a brother called Michel Monet dit Belhumeur who went out West as a voyageur. That brother has Metis descendants, including Marguerite Monet dit Bellehumeur  who married the famous Louis Riel.

Michel Monet dit Belhumeur,  son of (Martin Monet dit Bellehumeur and Marie-Josephe Boisel) married M Josephte (Marie-Margaret) Grant). Michel was “a Voyageur and freeman. – He worked for the fur trading companies – Settled at Red River Settlement in 1789 – Operated a trading post between Pembina ND and Winnipeg. – Helped build Fort Gibralter in 1810”  (continue reading  at https://www.geni.com/people/Michel-Monet-dit-Bellehumeur/5650081534690084717).

Monet dit Bellehumeur | Pt. 1/2

Query

Hello. I guess I am at a loss of where to start. My 3rd Great grandfather was named Michael Monette, sometimes called Mitchell in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, April 28,1830. He was a fur trader for the American Fur Company in 1855 and ended up settling in Nebraska, US. I have no proof but, according to family stories, he was mixed blood. He married a woman named Mary Bono in Nebraska and she was 1/2 Omaha Indian. Do you have any suggestions on where to search please? I do not know the names of his parents or siblings.

This is the only Michel Monette born in that period in Quebec  that I have found. The birth and baptismal date is off by one year but it is the precise date of the month. In addition, I found no marriage for a Michel Monette born to these parents. So if I were you I would use this as a promising research lead.

 

Monet dit Bellehumeur Lineage


Your 3rd great-grandfather Michel Monette (son of Pierre Monette and Pelagie Morin) was born in La Presentation (St. Hyacinthe, Quebec)  and baptized on April 28th, 1829 in La Presentation-de-la-Ste.-Vierge Church. The godparents were Michel Lacaillade and Magdeleine St-Pierre.

Michel’s parents were Pierre Monet (son of Francois Monet and Charlotte Jarred-Beauregard) and Marie-Pelagie Morin (son of Jean Morin and Marie-Magdeleine Proulx) who were married in Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire Parish in St-Hyacinthe, Quebec on January 1st, 1815. [Note:  Saint-Hyacinthe  is a town just east of Montreal (not far from my house) so it is plausible for your ancestor to say he was from Montreal]. Continue reading
