I am not sure that we are on the same family line.
My great-grandmother was Alexzine Duperon. I know very little about her, other than she was born in St. Polycarpe, Quebec, Canada.
Her parents were Paul (perhaps shortened from Napoleon) Duperon and Bertha Lafromboise.
Paul and Bertha Duperon had 5 children:
Bertha died in 1898, and is burried in St. Polycarpe, Quebec. Paul later remarried, Mary Jane McGill, and moved to Martintown, Ontario. They had 4 more children:
Eventually, the family members moved out to Saskatchewan, and later British Columbia.
My great-grandmother, Alexzine (aka Maude) settled in Tisdale Saskatchewan with her husband William Tiedjens. They had 8 children- Laverne, Lloyd, Lionel, Loreen, Lester, Lila, Frederick and Emil. Alexzine died in 1929 during child birth.
I was always told that Alexzine was Metis (half Amerindian and half French) but I have found nothing to prove this.
Paul Duperon Sr. died at the age of 90, in 1950, and is laid to rest in Spirit Lake, Saskatchewan. From what I gather, he was French, and the Metis blood comes from the Lafromboise family.
If any of this makes sence to you, please let me know. This is about all I know about the mysterious Duperon family.
My Duperon roots are very dear to me, and hope someday to get to the bottom of everything. Hopw to hear from you.
