Hi Luc and Suzanne, Thank You Luc for the direct line on Courville.I had also checked with Indian Affairs in 2000.Nothing was written on the 1851/61 census with the Courville as being Indian. I don't know why my ggreatfather told the family that his mother was metis.
I had found the marriage of Leo Courville married to Beatrice(Obea)Larabie and it was written Leo's parents as Louis and Adeline Lachaine.The same for Anna Courville. Where did you find Wakivin/Cadie Lachaine??
Louis Courville/Lebrun married Aug.5-1878 Carleton Ottawa to Desanges Courville.Witness Evangeliste Roy and John Lascelles.Now we know that Louis and Desanges were 1st cousins.Louis Courville died May 16&buried May 17-1907 Perkins at the aged 52 years.
Suzanne I will scan the picture and send it to your e-mail. Carmen
