Hi My name is Stephanie Courtoreille I am living with a Prouty in Canada his name is Jordan Prouty and we have an 8 month old son his name is Lynden Courtoreille-Prouty, I want to find some back round of the Prouty family so I can one day tell my son about his family, Jordan's father died when his mom was pregnant with him his name was George Clifford Prouty of Kenora, Ontario I have no info on his birthdate or the year he was born I know that he settled here with his wife in the early 70's in the Kenora region. Jordan is a half native from the Ojibwe Tribe and he thinks his dad was English but he isn't sure our son is mostly native from both the Ojibwe and Cree tribes he also has abit of other native blood in him; Dene and Assiniboine( a little bit of French as well from my side) I would like to know more information on where the family Prouty originated from to give my son some backround on his late grandfathers family, but I can't because we have no contact with any other Prouty family if you can e-mail me and we can talk about the name Prouty I would greatly apprieciate that and thank you for your time.
