Looking for the parents' ancestry of Margaret St Denis, who was b. 2 Apr 1863 in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, Canada, and died 16 May 1953 in Santa Cruz, California. Margaret came to the US about 1880, m. James Deegan about 1882. They lived mostly in Frazer, Valley County, Montana, where they had 12 chn, 10 of whom survived early childhood. James Deegan was the first elected sheriff of Valley Co Montana and there is a bio of him in the History of Montana Vol III, available on Ancestry. Deegan's father, according to the History of Montana, was Daniel Deegan, who came to Canada from Ireland and d. abt 1870, when James went to Minnesota, then Montana. There is family story that Margaret's family was part native American, which descendants of Mary Louise Deegan (who m. Albert Weasa) would like to verify. I am doing the research but am not related.
