Re: PIERRE BRELAND (1764-1829)

Wow, nice work everyone! I can most assuredly identify with the 'Who's on first' feeling of finding information about Louise Umpherville's early life, and the resolution of the 'Belly' surname is very gratifying. Gary, can you tell me what the source is for Madeleine (c1800 MADELAINE DUBOISHUE dit B...

Re: JOHN ROWAND (1812-1865)

Summer's over and I have time to return to my love of research. Wanted to openly ponder some thoughts. Beth has pointed out that John Jr. acknowledged a son named William in his will. Oblate archives records of baptisms mention Jean Rowand (bapt. 1843) and William Rowand (bapt. 1845) from parents "J...

Re: JOHN ROWAND (1787-1854)

DCBO: During the early years of his mission RUNDLE was usually accompanied in his travels by a guide, or he travelled with HBC officers such as John Edward HARRIOTT or John ROWAND. As he grew more confident in the Cree language, he and his mixed-blood translator William ROWLAND travelled alone with...

Re: JOHN ROWAND (1787-1854)

Also, a Mr. Rick Wilmot on Rootsweb is quite convinced of the Antoine/Rowand connection: >>Gail, >>Antoine's father is listed as Sieur John Rowand, mother as Louise >>Millet. This is recorded in the Marriage Registry in Lac Ste Anne as >>well as in the Provincial archives in Alberta. We have a lette...

Re: JOHN ROWAND (1787-1854)

Hi Lydia, Another consideration that I believe Cora Taylor mentions is that Antoine Rowand was actually a Rowland, as the names were often confused, or from a family of Rowands who were of no relation to John and Lousie (in Victoria Callihoo: An Amazing Life (Eschia Books, 2008)). It would be intere...

Re: JOHN ROWAND (1787-1854)

Czar pg 148: Edward DUFRESNE’s wife bore John a son who, although he was named Francois DUFRESNE, appears to have been considered one of John ROWAND’s family. My Notes: This statement refers to Francois DUFRESNE born around 1850-51, John’s illegitimate child with Marguerite MOIGNON aka MONDION who ...

Re: JOHN EDWARD HARRIOTT (1797-1866)

In 1822 the HBC was keen to open up trade in the southern part of Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) territory. That year, John Edward became a member of the Bow River Expedition which established a small post below the forks of the Red Deer and South Saskatchewan rivers. The expedition was led by Donald McKEN...
