This is the marriage record of Israel Rice Tekarihoken and Marie-Anne Karonhiaroroks who were married on April 13th, 1896 in St-Francois-Xavier Parish in Caughnawaga (now Kahnawake). His parents were Pierre Atawenrate and Scholastique Kaniserenta Picard.
Although not indicated on the marriage certificate, Judy Rice informs me that according to family information (also confirmed by Kahnawake researchers), Marie-Anne’s mother was Charlotte Agathe DeLaronde (b 1844) and an American Stuart Hans.
Delphis Thibault (son of Alfred Thibault and Adele Belair) and Emma Rice (daughter of Israel Rice and Marie Karonhiaroroks) posing for a picture in Kahnawake.
The exact date of the photograph is unknown however we do know that Delphis was born in 1903 while Emma had been born in 1897 (in Kahnawake) and that the couple had been married in Sudbury, Ontario in 1922.
