Almost forgot to reference the heritage of Alfred and Henri Sevigny. As I indicate, their mother was Mathilda Laferte (Theroux.) I don't see anything obvious in the name to indicate she was Native American. However, her mother was M. LaFleur and the research that my cousin did only turned up a mother for her- a Louise LaFleur. Difficult to say what that may or may not mean. I have heard that if you find the baptismal or marriage records of a Native American, the priests had a symbol they would use to replace some sounds not in the French language. However, as I have not done this research first hand myself yet, I don't know if there is any evidence of this. I am not familiar with the tribe you mention. Do you know what region they inhabited?
Oh, yes, I also recall my grandmother saying that the Sevigny's had "Indian" blood- but she never said from whence it came.
This is kind of fun, eh?
