I found my line connecting my Loisel family to the Gaspe Pennisula and Quebec. Thanks to the people I got help from. I went from a story about a rock and a place where there was water to Port Daniel and the Gaspe history of Acadia!!!
I am still perplexed though and maybe someone can help with this....
My great grandmother Catherine left her home of Gaspe to come to the US at around age 14 . She came to the US and married 1 year later...she married a pure ojibway man..1898.
I find it odd that she would have connections to Indian people coming straight from Quebec and knowing no English. I find it odd that she would have met and marriied an Indian man all within a year unless she had connections to him already through family.
Her parents came with her. Her father Robert Loisel died the same year they came 1897. He was older.
When Catherine's husband, Henry Lancour, died she married a George Duffina who was also mixed Ojibway...with roots in Canada.
I would like to find Catherine's connection to Indian people I think it is more than just through her marriages to her husbands. Does anyone know how to find the Indian connection? Her mother's name was Emilie Mignier dit Lagace. But she refers to herself as Millie Miller and also Millie Wezzell(Loiselle). She was from the Gaspe Region too . I have exact dates and places for someone who wants more info and I am willing to help with the search...
We have not yet found EMilie Mignier dit Lagace's birth record or baptism. They were Catholic that I know of.
I also would like to find any pictures of the families.
Losiel, Duguay, LaBrasseur, Lagace, Chapados, Oulette, LaRocque, Pilon, Savoie, etc....
I see many times a listing of amerindienne or Micmac woman etc but how do I get documents for proof....
thanks to all who will help.
