Re: Hamelins of "St. Augustin" 1760-1810

Hello Jo!

Not sure if you remember, but you did some translating work for my mother Barb M. from Nova Scotia on McLennan Ab. Dios. pages.

Anyway, Specifically I am researching 2 Francois Hamelins (& their immediate families), possibly linked to a Solomon and Augustin Hamelin.

I recently rec'd info from the Alberta Prov. Archives - The First Families of the West by the Oblates. They say;

Augustin Hamelin of Louis Charles & Josette LeSable
child: Salomon Hamelin b. 1810
[I have seen this solomon recorded as son of Jacques & Angelique tourangeau)

[They infer that from Solomon came Francois Sr. This does not jibe with any records I have seen, so I am thinking there has to be another Solomon altogether (if at all).]

FRANCOIS Hamelin [SR. b. abt. 1800] M. Catherine Courteoreille Nipissing bap. July 23, 1843

Their Children:

Jean-Baptiste b. 1825 bap. 11-11-45 M. Suzanne Newotchikchewis
Pierre b. 1827 bap. 7-10-55 M. Marianne Mekomiltekwow/Nipissing
Antoine b. 1829 bap 11-11-45 M. Isabelle Bruneau
Joseph-L b.1831 bap. 11-11-45 M. 1) Marie Courteoreille M. 2) Louise Larence
Marie b. 1833 bap.11-11-45 M. Jacques [possibly James] Courteoreille
Basile b. 1836 bap. 12-12-44
Aishange (?? spelling hard to read) b. 1839 bap. 12-12-44
Charles b. 1841 bap. 12-12-44
FRANCOIS JR. b. 1843 bap. 12-12-44
Isabelle b. Nov 8 1847 bap. 12-12-44

End of this portion of the Oblates file.

FRANCOIS JR. is recorded b. 1843-1845 Lac La Nonne M. Catherine Whitefish in St Albert.

What's really messy here is all their children claim another woman as their mother on scrip & baptism records.

Their Children according to SCRIP & Baptism records:

Philomene b. 1870, Bap Apr 2 or 7 1870 M. Martin Gladu claims Marie A-ti-co-muk as mother on scrip.

Cyprien bap. 9-25-1872 @ 5 mos in Grouard. d. 1874, Buried 4-10-1874.

Sophie R. b. 1875 Lesser Slave Lake M. J. Bte. Cardinal 8-15-1897 at ST AUGUSTIN MISSION, Peace River. Sophie claims mother Madeline Nault on scrip.

Paul Bap. Sept 7, 1879 @ 8 mos in Grouard. Bap Record says Son of Francois & Madeleine Tastawich.

Marie, b. abt 1886 M. Ambroise Thomas b. 1868 on Sept 14, 1900 St Augustin Mission,Peace River. alta gen.society shows Marie b. 1876 on baptism record - this makes sense if she claims Madeleine as her mother)Marie claims Madeleine Hamelin on scrip.

Angele Amilia, b.1881 & bap May 30, 1885 Ft. Vermillion. M. George McCallister(McCorrister Birth : DEC 1880
) on Sept. Dec 06, 1902 in St Augustin Mission. Catherine Whitefish named mother to her & all others on scrip. No baptism info for her.

Elise b. 1883 bap. June 24, 1883 in Ft. Vermillion. M. Alex McCorrister/McAllister Sept 14, 1900. Elise claims mother "madeleine" on marriage cert. & "Magdeleine" on birth/Bapt cert.

Emilie aka Millie, bap May 28, 1889 at age 1 1/2 in St Augustin Mission, Peace River {alta gen.society shows Emilie b. 1887 on baptism record).Emile & following children claimed as deceased in scrip records.

Alfred b. Nov 13, 1889. Bap Nov 18, 1889 in Grouard. Died in Carcajou (Wolverine Point)

St Pierre, b & d. in Carcajou (Wolverine Point)

Lena b. & d. in Carcajou (Wolverine Point)

The Archives woman also found a death record for Sept 10 1922 or Oct. 9 1922 for a Madeleine Hamelin b. 1842, wife of Francois Hamelin at Friedenstal.

Just to mix it up a little more...I also saw a SCRIP record for a Napoleon Blondeau in favour of Francois Hamelin No. 9G for $71.10 in favour of Francois Hamelin heir to Jacques Hamelin.
Haven't checked yet to see if this is really related.

So this is the trail of my family that makes me crazy! I am really wondering what this mystery is... ie) Is Catherine Whitefish and Madeleine Attikamek (Cree for whitfish)the same woman? Or did Francois JR have 2 or even 3 wives, with only one "official"?

I guess I should check the actual scrip record dates to compare to the baptism information.

If you have any ideas or info, I'd sure LOVVVEEE to hear from you.

Take care,
