The Caughnawaga Ploughing Match (1883) | Surnames: Tehoniataronwe, Montour, Jocks, Sky, Phillips, Daillebout, Patton, DeLorimier, Leaf

A GRAND SUCCESS – TWENTY NINE ENTRIES — EXCELLENT WORK — PRESENTING THE PRIZES.

The first ploughing competition ever held in Caughnawaga was looked forward to by the residents with an intense interest, which was not confined to the Indian reserve but spread among the farmers for miles around. The farm of John Tehoniataronwe had been chosen as the scene of the completion, and early on Saturday morning spectators began to arrive in large numbers. It is estimated that between four and five hundred people were on the ground, among them many visitors from the neighbourhood of Chateauguay.

For the first class, over 18 years of age, there were twenty-three entires, a number which few older and more pretentious associations could equal. Each man had to plough a width of twenty four feet by about two acres in length, with a prize ridge in the centre. The competitors drew lots for position, and at the given signal started off, every man appearing to be perfectly at home with the plough. Excellent work was done, indeed some of the farmers present declared it equal to the best they had seen. One of the judges remarked that he had seen some of the best Canadian pressmen do worse work. After over an hour’s examination, in addition to watching the progress of the work, the judges awarded the prizes in this class as follows:-

Class I – 1st prize, $8, Chief Montour; 2nd prize, $5, Matthew Jocks; 3rd prize, $4, Francis Sky; 4th prize, $2, Thomas Phillips. Continue reading

Indians Camped On Delaware River Wear Plastic Helmet Headdresses (1950) | Surnames: Montour

Indians Camped On Delaware River Wear Plastic Helmet Headdresses

Wilmington, Del. –  A band of Canadian Indians gathered on the banks of the Delaware river today wearing plastic helmets in place of their tribal headdress. And the “weapons“ they carried were rivet hammers rather than tomahawks.

The redmen in this case are veteran “high steel men“ employed by the American Bridge company to work on the huge span to be erected across the river from a point south of Wilmington to New Jersey. The Indians coming here are mostly from the Caughnawaga reservation on the St. Lawrence river in Quebec province.
