I have heard a family rumor that my gr-grandmother "played with the indians" when she was young. She is Delphine PICARD/PECOR b: 01/06/1857 Belleville, Hastings Cty., Ontario, Canada. She m: Francois BROUSSEAU abt. 1880 in Canada? She d: 02/12/1945 Nashua, NH.
This was confirmed by a cousin and he remembered the name of the tribe as Memominee Indians in the Northeastern section of Wisconsin. Suggest trying tribal documents in Wisconsin for more BROUSSEAU or PICARD/PECOR connections (don't know if one or both families were indian).
There's some info about this tribe and it's clans on www.memominee.com. I understand that the tribe moved onto the reservation in Wisconsin in 1854, which is about the date of birth of my gr-grandmother, Delphine.
What else do you have on the indian connection?
