Dominic Diabo D'Ailleboust  Property Gerrie Trapp Rousseau

Query from Gerri Trapp Rousseau

My Kanien’kehá:ka great-grandfather was Dominic Diabo and great-grandmother a Delisle (Turtle Clan) from Kahnawake.

This photo is of my Great Grandpa, Dominic Diabo (Kahnawake) in the late 1950s.

My guess he was born in the 1880s. My Mother was Dorothy Russell, Dominic’s Granddaughter.

She would visit him in the summers at Kahnawake when she was a little girl  Anyone familiar with names, please contact. Niá:wen
