Malouin Family Genealogy Forum
My most interesting mystery. Please help me find some of Fabien's descendants, or any information on his ancestors.. He was b. in 1810 of the Faubourg St. Joseph, Montreal. Became a courers des bois, went to French Prairie Oregon, where he married an Iroquois metisse named Louise Michel Atenesse, in 1839 at the Northwest Territory Catholic Mission. They had several children: Pierre, b. in 1839;Francois, baptized in 1839; Leandre baptized 1840--who subsequently may have gone back to Montreal after her father died.;: and Monique baptized in 1843. I am hoping to find some links to their descendants. Louise died in 1849 after 6 recorded children, and Fabien then married Victoire Laderoute, another metisse. Fabien had a land claim in Oregon, and died shortly after in 1855. He died intestate, and I have a copy of his estate probate records. My Malouin line all come from the Montreal area, and I so want to find my link to Fabien. Hope you can help. I have a granddaughter Monique who also would love to know more about her namesake and family.
Thank you all.
