White Farmers in Caughnawaga (1880) | Surnames: Beauvais, Delisle, DeLorimer, Jocks, Murray, Williams
Interview with Chief Jocks and others – the question of white labour – the case fairly and fully stated

Looking for family tree info. on the family of Agnes Wianta Blue-Horn-DeLisle and Peter Tiokate DeLisle. They were my grandparents born in the early 1900’s and any family in their tree that you may be able to find or info. Thank you! Kelly
Another interesting record which might connect to your lineage is that of an Agnes Blue Wahientha, widow of Jean Baptiste Soronhiaa who died On May 23rd, 1935. This record is from the St-Francoix-Xavier Catholic parish.
If we look to the 1911 census for what the government called “Sault St.Louis Indian Reserve”, we find two Bleue households, as well as a Dailleboust household with a little girl named Agnes Bleue.
