That was really helpful, especially the part on Elizabeth's family. My son-in-law is a g-grandson of her son Magloire, and I have been having difficulty getting information on him and his family.
I know that dates of events were often aproximated. And sometimes a stepmother is reported as the mother. Looking at the following, it is no wonder that I get confused sometimes:
Antoine Auger, b-1826, Lesser Slave Lake (Alberta) son Antoine Augustin Auger and Marie Madeleine Klyne, b-1808; married 1848, Lac Ste Anne (Alberta), Louise Boucher, Metis, b-1832, Battle River Settlement (Alberta), son Joseph Boucher and Marguerite Dupis, Metis, b-1802
Augustin Auger, Metis, b-1825, Lesser Slave Lake (Alberta) son Antoine Augustin Auger and Marie Nippissing; 1st married 1848, Fort Edmonton, (Alberta), Rosalie Labonne; 2nd marriage, 1861, Fort Edmonton, (Alberta), Sylvie Bruneau, b-1845, Lac La Biche (Alberta), daughter Michel Joachim Bruneau b-1806 and Marie Catherine Ladouceur, b-1810.
Scrip affidavit for Auger, [Jean] Baptiste; born: 1826; father: Antoine Auger (Métis); mother: Marie Cline (German); claim no: 852; date of issue: July 12, 1876; amount: $160
Francois Payasis Desjarlais, b-1824 Beaver River, son Joseph Desjarlais and Josephte Suzette Cardinal, b-1800, Lac La Biche des Metis; married 1844 Lac La Biche des Metis (Alberta) Euphrosine Auger Metis, b-1828 Lesser Slave Lake (Alberta) daughter Antoine Augustin Auger and Marie Nippissing.
[Look at he name of her mother in the two documents:]
Lac La Biche des Metis (Alberta), marriage Joseph Ladouceur, Metis, b-1813 Beaver River, son Joseph Ladouceur and Josephte Suzette Cardinal, Metis; married Julie Auger, Metis b-1822 Lac La Biche des Metis (Alberta) daughter Antoine Augustin Auger and Marie Nippissing.
Narcisse Ladouceur, b-1864, Lac La Biche, (Alberta), son Joseph Ladouceur, b-1813 Beacer River and Julie Auger, b-1822 Lac La Biche (Alberta); married 1882, Lac La Biche (Alberta), Julie Auger, b-1863, South Saskatchewan River, daughter Augustin Auger, b-1825, Lesser Slave Lake, Alberta and Sylvie Bruneau, b-1845, Lac La Biche (Alberta)
As you can see, I have found the Garneau history a useful source of marriage documents. I see that you used the spelling Titiklwinis where some have used Pitikiwinis, I wonder which is best? In the old 19th century style of hand-writing, capital P's and T's are nearly identical.
The information you have provided is detailed and well organized. Thanks again for all the help. It is a fascinating family. They were enterprising people and were in the first wave of the western migration across the continent.
