Antoine and Marie were living in Beloeil, Quebec, with their daughter Lucie Trudeau and her husband Urbain Aubé.
135 years ago…
In the 1880 U.S. Census, in Lincoln, Providence, Rhode Island, United States, Urbain and Lucie are there.

Antoine Trudeau and Marie Dufaut are not living with them anymore. Marie would have been 106 and Antoine 104. Urbain and Lucie probably emigrated to the United States around 1870 since Carolina was born in the U.S.
I could go on and on with this search, but I prefer to wait for someone to write me like Rose did in search of her ancestors.
Antoine Trudeau and Marie Dufaut are living and well.
Look closely and see some more relatives on that page.
But you’re not alone…
This picture was found on the Internet.
It’s an Ojibwe woman carrying her child.
That’s exactly how Marie Dufaut’s mother looked like.
Kenogenini Mentosaky became known as Marie-Louise Brunelle when she was baptized back in Quebec.
You can see the name Brunelle crossed out by the priest in the margin when Marie Dufaut got married to Antoine Truteau.
Plenty of information can be found if you can read French as I do…
Brother and sister reuniting Rose and moi.
No pictures, just images from parish registers or census pages.
I could go on and on with all I found about Rose and moi, but I have invited Rose as an editor on my private Ancestry tree so she can indulge in her own ancestors.
Next time, who also has Ojibwe blood.
