In Reply to: Looking for Info. on Adele Delorme by Sarah Vermette of 336

Assuming that your Adele Delorme was the Adele Delorme who married Louis Vermette on 9 Sep 1879 at St. Jean-Baptiste, I have most of her ancestry back to France.

Adele is descended from Jacques Enaud dit Canada, a soldier in the famous Carignan-Salieres Regiment which came to New France in 1665 to fight the Iroquois who had been raiding Quebec villages and killing many men, women, and children. he married Marie Leroux circa 1667 and settled in Berthier. They had two male grandchildren named Pierre, Pierre Enaud dit Delorme and Pierre Enaud dit Fresniere, who essentially founded the two branches of the family.

One of Pierre Enaud dit Delorme's great grandsons, Joseph Henault-Delorme migrated to the Red River area in the early 1800's and settled down there, eventually dropping the original family name Enaud/Henault in favor of the dit name Delorme. One of Joseph's uncles had migrated to the area earlier and he too had dropped the original family name for Delorme, giving two distinct but related Delorme families in Manitoba.

One of Joseph's sons, also named Joseph, was Adele's father.
