LaForse family in Ontario & Quebec

I know I've probably posted about this somewhere else on here at some point but I thought I'd try again.

I'm looking for a LaForse family that appears on the 1881 Canadian census in Gratton, Renfrew South, Ontario Canada.

The family I am searching for is my great-great grandparents and their children.

My great-great grandfather was: Mistache LaForse. He was born in 1843 in Quebec. He was also Indigineous according to the 1881 census.

My great-great grandmother was Mary LaForse. She was born in Ontario in 1851.

Together, they had 4 children (who were all born in Ontario):

Ann LaForse b. 1869
Andrew LaForse b. 1872
Cecilia LaForse b. 1876
Peter LaForse b. 1880

Peter LaForse is my great-grandfather.

At the time of the 1881 census, they were visiting Mistache's brother's family. The reason I know that this is true is the fact that Mistache was listed as a hunter on the census.

My great-great-great uncle's family is as follows:
Andrew LaForse b. 1846 Quebec
Betsy LaForse b. 1851 Ontario
Matilda LaForse b. 1870 Ontario
Mary LaForse b. 1873 Ontario
John LaForse b. 1877 Ontario
Charlie LaForse b. 1878 Ontario

What I found interesting with the 1881 census with this particular family was that Andres (b. 1846) and Charlie (b. 1878) had both converted to the Church of England which is High Anglican as opposed to all of their other relatives who were listed as being Catholic.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
