Thank you for responding. I'm glad you read my article, "Finding Adonijah," and I appreciate your thoughtful comments.
I know also that Joseph is a common name when children were baptized, but the
comment on the certificate that he was English, parents unknown, taken from the hands of the Indians, gave me pause. Also, the people who had that Joseph
baptized were amongst the same who were dealing in human trade with the child captives ... at any rate, you make a good point about this Julien being
baptized in the name of the priest.
I also appreciate your summary of the "pathway" of Mission de la Montagne, Mission du Sault-au-Recollet, Lac des Deux Montagnes, Oka & Kanesetake ..
when I first wrote that essay, I was still trying to get clear about how those
territories changed names and hands.
I have found one document, from a civil Oka wedding where Julien Anneharison officiated, and on which it is noted that he is a chief of prayer. I
cited that in my "Finding Adonijah" essay ... are you aware of any other documents in which Julien is noted as a chief of prayer? I am very, very interested to follow this aspect of Julien Anenharison/risi -- whether he is
Adonijah or not!
Your notation about Anenharison as "one who helps a lot of people" is very interesting to me! Where did you find that? And yes! You make a very important point -- it may well be that the Rice boys were taken by a group of
Mohawk, Huron, and Abenaki/Algonquian warriors, not just Mohawk. In the
Rice Ass'n, there has been a strong tradition of believing that the four Rice
boys were taken together to Caubhnawaga/Kahnawake, and in writing what I wrote, I was beginning to "break tradition" with that view.
I will contact Mr. Pierre Bernard. Thank you for that reference. I really
appreciate your response. If you ever find any information about the male
children of Juline Anenharison/risi, I hope you will let me know! -- and thank
you again for your help and good wishes!
