– An Incomplete Family Tree –
Jean Baptiste Karontarirhon Stacey (son of Joseph Arontarirhon Stacey and Marie Teiosaktannhen Monique) married Louise-Rosine(a) Rice (daughter of Pierre Atawenrate and Scholastique Kaniserentha Picard) on 26 Aug 1873 in Kahnawake Laprairie Quebec CAN. Louise-Rosine(a) died on 6 Apr 1926. Jean Baptiste was a blacksmith.
Jean Baptiste and Louise Rosine had at least 6 children: Jacques-Alexandre Akwirakenhiate, John (Jean Baptiste) Karonhiohare, Frank Thawenrate, Ignace/Angus-Ignatius Sakawihon, Louis and William.

Fabiane was born in Oka Deux-Montagnes QC CAN and her parents were Hormidas Perras and Mathilde McComber. Notes: Jacques-Alexandre was present at his mother Louise-Rosine’s funeral in Kahnawake in 1926. There is a Canada/USA border document that appears to be for him. It states that he was travelling from Cornwall, Ontario to Nyando, New York on 10 august 1926 and that he was a blacksmith. His contact in the U.S. was an uncle named George Rice living at 1202 Lawrence St., Brooklyn, N.Y. The document also states that he had lived in Providence, Rhode Island (U.S.A.) from 1888 – 1896.

This is a vintage postcard of a Micmac Indian Camp.
I believe the postmark reads January 14th, 1907.
Alternate spellings of Micmac include Mi’kmaq and Migmaw.
Andre Mignier was a simple, 17th century soldier, so we certainly have no images of him, however we do have this recent painting by Francis Back of a typical soldier of the Carignan-Salieres Regiment. The painting is historically accurate as it is based on equipment lists and descriptions of the period.
Andre Mignier’s regiment was stationed in Nouvelle France (Quebec) between 1665 and 1668. The soldiers were brought here to defend the colony from what Europeans called “marauding” Iroquois warriors. Of course, the Iroquois (and other First Nations and Inuit) were already here before the arrival of the Europeans so they would undoubtedly write this history from a different perspective!
At the end of the three years soldiers (and officers) were offered the chance to settle in Nouvelle France. Officers received seigneuries while their soldiers were offered plots of land. In return they had to meet certain requirements (such as building a house) but most importantly – they had to marry!
An M-line is a lineage built by beginning with a woman and tracing her line back mother-to-mother. As a result, the surname changes with each generation. This is a big trend right now, especially with the advent of genetic genealogy which allows both men (through their mothers) and women to trace their bloodlines through their mtDNA.

This is the original entry for Jean Huard and Marie Angleharte‘s marriage from the Notre-Dame-de-la-Purification in Paspebiac. The basic information confirms my records which dates their marriage to January 30th, 1826, and confirms their parentage. Alexandre Huard was the son of Jean Huard and Madeleine Denys while Marie’s parents were Jean Baptiste Anglehardt and Anne Chappado. Marie had Amerindian – Native (metis) heritage.
Something new that I learned was that Marie’s father was already deceased on that date. Another useful fact regards Marie’s surname. In fact when her parents were married their names were registered as follows: Jean Baptiste Migkelharte and Anne Chappadeau. I knew that Anglehart/Migkelhart were the same family but I always wondered when Anglehart came into use. Now I know it was used at the beginning of the 1800s.
Those researching this lineage sure have their work cut out for them!
