A Canadian Family

First Nations, French Canadians & Acadians

St. Regis | Iroquois, Mohawk (1901)

Index: Native Surname Census Extracts

 

This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in Eastern Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames carried by Aboriginal (or part Aboriginal) individuals in the 1901 and 1911 census for the eastern provinces of Canada. Note: There are regular updates including external links (e.g. maps, encyclopedia) and added information (e.g. specific tribal affiliations). The companion series – Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames of Eastern Canada – Marriage Records  – contains many of the same surnames as well as others.

The Francis Family of St-Regis | Francois Xavier Otenhakte and Catherine Korokwas

St-Regis | Mohawk historySummary: A Francis family descendant would like to know more about her family history.

Hello all,

I’ve been doing family history research on and off for years now, and have (finally) made a break through on my mothers side, and am hoping that someone here may be able to help me further. I have a lot of names (information) but not much history and so any help you can offer to fill in the blanks about family I’ve just learned and am so incredibly excited to know would be awesome. And if we happen to be related, even better!

I am the third great granddaughter of Felecite Kaawis who would eventually be known as Christina M Francis, Adams, Thomas, and Herihaketi though I could be mistaken about the Thomas and Herihaketi part. She was the daughter of François Xavier Otenhakte/ Francis and Catherine Korokwas/ Francis. She had six siblings, Marie Konsaionhake/ Karhakens/ Francis being one of them who was the mother of John Baptiste Arhakentiake Anewario Sawatis.

Felecite married a French man (I believe, though he lived on the reservation) named Benjamin John Franklin Major and they had ten children, one of which was Margaret “Maggie” M Major, my great great grandmother.

Wading through French records is difficult for me as I can’t read French, and many times the records aren’t written very clearly to begin with. Also the continuous change in surname makes keeping track of the line challenging,

So if any of these names seems familiar to you, and you have any more information on my family, please contact me at  Hdburge06 (at) gmail (dot) com (or leave a message in the comment boxes below)

Any help is appreciated.
