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

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.
