I am looking for my ggrandmother's family.Her name, Josephine Mary BEGIN, b.26Feb1872, Lambton Co., Ontario, Canada, Husband, Peter Prieur, b.abt1855, Lambton, Ontario. Her father was Louis BEGIN; he may have been born in 1833. I have two possible names for her mother (but these may be wrong) 1. Rose D. Fortin, m.16Aug1853 2. Rosalie Couture.
Floyd Begin, the late Arch-bishop of Oakland Calf., was my father's 1st cousin.My grandfather cliamed to be part Native American--I believe on the BEGIN side.The stories that I have tried to piece together indicate that Louis may have had two wives, one of whom was Native American.
