A note on the images accompanying Charlotte Small... I cannot attest to the painting but the photo is of Olive Oatman 1837-1903. She has a Wikipedia entry:

Re: JEAN BAPTISTE FONTAINE (1798-1873)

Hi Gary and thank you. Yes, I saw that but I was wanting to see the original record. Ancestry.com has the Minnesota Territorial census records but the Fontaine entry appears to be missing.

Re: PAUL FONTAINE (1850-1921+)

Hi all... another grateful thanks is extended to Gary for the amazing work he has done on this site. Paul Fonataine 1850-1921 is very likely my 2x great grandfather. Since I am adopted I cannot say for sure at this point but the DNA evidence is suggesting that this is very likely the case.
