Re: JOHN ROBERT MOORE (1862-1937)

I think the main thing about the Moores/Moars is that they were more Indian than European in the most commonest sense-more than the half that their counterparts, the Metis, are said have been at the time(more than a hundred years ago and counting). There is a family story about how the Thomas's(my l...

Re: LOUIS SIMARD (1855-1920)

http://www.nosorigines.qc.ca/GenealogieQuebec.aspx?pid=1121355 ----- This is just one theory that may or may not be as accurate as the rest but I think that Louis Simard's(b. est. 1855) parents can be found at the aforementioned link. The family story is that Louis Simard was a tobacco farmer and th...

Re: Elizabeth Betsy Seymour Nee Cochrane(dob 1871)

I'd say that's them, from Betsy to her parents(Thaddeus Cochrane and Jane Stevenson) or probably Tadius Courchene and Jeanne Stephanson when the French were influencing them. And Betsy's grandparents the Oh Ima Kahpo(head of household) and his wife of the Appitayossins. Strangely the Tadius is Old F...

Re: JOHN GEORGE KENNEDY (1870-?)

The Margaret Dennet in the 1891 census must have been born a Dennet to a William Dennet and his wife Elizabeth something. The Margaret Dennet's who I am referring to both used their married surnames, Kennedy and Calder respectfully, to apply for scrip. I have no idea who this 19 year old Margaret De...

Margaret Kennedy nee Dennet put in a power of attorney giving her husband Alexander Kennedy the ability to act on her behalf and he subsequently got a lawyer to represent them. The claim for scrip put in by the law firm stated that her parents were William Dennet and Margaret Calder. There is a ref....

Re: JOHN GEORGE KENNEDY (1870-?)

I actually thought it was 1827 but I have accepted that it could reasonably range within a couple years either way based on the way some census takers were a bit to eager to get the list well before it got published. Such is the case where it is stated on the census that the said person will be of s...
