My Fascinating Metis Family:|
This is where my Oneida Family comes together with the Metis Side.
Francis H. Beauregard seems to have came from nowhere, and is buried somewhere. UPDATE: Thanks to Dennis Beauregard, I have finally been given the birh date of Francois and the names of his parents. He was born 8 Nov 1825 in St-Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada to Pierre Jarrett Beauregard [bourgard]and Marguerite Dion Dit Guyon Ditlemoine. Francois had 13 brothers and sisters, as well as 8 half brothers and sisters. He married a young Ojibwa woman named Ne ga na si no kwe in 1853. They were married by a Catholic priest somewhere near Cornell, Wisconsin. She was the of daughter of Gi nish ta no who is listed as a chief of the Trout Lake Band of Chippewa on the 1847 Treaty, and 2nd Chief of the Lac du Flambeau Band on the 1854 Treaty. Ke nish te no is the ancient spelling, while Gi nish ta no is the newer spelling. Gi nish ta no died before 1868, and Ne ga na si no kwe's mother died when she was about two years old. We don't have any record of her name. When Ne ga na si no kwe was baptized, she was given the name of Margaret. She lived most of her life in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, even though she was alloted land, according to the Treaty of 1854, in Lac du Flambeau. Francis went off to fight in the Civil War and never returned. He is listed as a Private in Co.'A', 7th Regiment; Wisconsin Infantry; captured in the 'Battle of the Wilderness', 5 May 1864; reported to have died at prison 1 Sept 1864. He is listed as being a prisoner at Andersonville Prison, he became sick and is believed to have died there, but they have no record of his death, or where he might be buried.
