Evelyn in Montreal: Guertin, Cousineau, Taillefer (Metis, Algonquin?)

[Note to readers: help needed on this one ūüôā ]

I am looking for native connections to Algonquin with the name Scholastique Cousineau who married Cl√©ment Guertin on Nov. 4th, 1844 in Aylmer, Quebec. She is Algonquin but I need a positive connection that says so. She may have come from Lake of Two Mountains or Golden Lake. I‚Äôve already been to and checked with the Kitigan Zibi without success. To me, it would mean the difference between ‚Äėfiction and non-fiction‚Äô in my novel writing. your help would be greatly appreciated. Norman

Information 1

Guertin Cousineau Genealogy, MetisConfirmation of parents

Clement Guertin (son of Michel Guertin and Marie-Louise Girard) and Scholastique Cousineau (daughter of Amable Cousineau and Marie Tailleferre) were married in St-Paul parish (Aylmer, Gatineau, Qc) on Nov. 4th, 1844. I have been ¬†unable to decipher any mention of First Nations heritage. In a follow-up search at Ancestry.com and BMS2000, I have so far not definitively located the marriage of Scholastique’s parents (Cousineau/Tailleferre). The Ancestry indexing is notoriously mangled so if anyone reading this is familiar with the marriage – please leave a note in the comments boxes below.

Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Marriages of Eastern Canada

Quebec Native Genealogy | Wendake Huron

The life histories of Natives, First Peoples and Metis from Eastern Canada can be  notoriously difficult to trace. The first Рand perhaps greatest Рlayer of difficulty for genealogists and family  historians is the late adoption of  western surname usage (stable family names handed down from parent to child). This has led to given individuals in certain time periods carrying multiple surnames over a lifetime by choice or by usage on Westernized documents. In some cases (such as Kahnawake) individuals carried original surnames, switched (or were switched to) Westernized surnames Рand then back again.

The second layer of difficulty is that Native surnames were transcribed phonetically which led to spelling variations in the various official documents (that is, between different church registers, census documents, border crossings etc.). A last difficulty is with the varying quality and methodologies of the different indexing projects which makes it difficult to access the primary documents (microfilmed records) and cross-check with other indexes.

My eventual goal is create a Master Index of Names carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in what is now Eastern Canada. This first part of the project consists of names that I extract from various online marriage databases.

HISTORICAL DOCUMENT: Angleharte & Huard – Marriage, 1826

Who: Marie Angleharte, Alexandre Huard + Chappado

 Family Connection:  ancestor, Luce M-line  Where: Paspebiac, Quebec, Canada

___________________________________________________________________

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!
