Cecile Anenharison/risi dit Risse dit Visse Dicaire 1743 Oka, Sault au Recollet
I am very interested in your posting!I am very interested in the migrations of the Huguenots and Puritans and their interactions with the First Nations peoples in the Atlantic Northeast. I have been conducting considerable research over the past seven years, research which has led me to Cecile Anenharisonrisi Risse Visse Dicaire. I believe that she is the daughter of Julien Anenharisonrisi Risse Visse and Marie-Angelique, and ... that Julien is the name given to Adonijah Rice who was "captivated" from Westborough, Massachusetts during August, 1704 by Mohawks on a mourning war raid.I have written an essay about this which is published in the Newsletter for the Edmund Rice (1638) Association, Winter 2006 Issue, which is available online:
It is one essay in a series of essays I've done, "Reverend Parkman and the Rices."
The essay which most pertains to your posting is:"Finding Adonijah:After the 1704 Mourning War Raid on Westborough."
This essay was written first for the Rice family newsletter, so I have written to an extended family readership.However, a version of the piece which I wrote for a broader readership will be published by "American-Canadian Genealogist," which is the Journal of theAmerican-Canadian Genealogical Society, during March 2007, in Issue #111, Volume 33, Number 1, 2007.
I am seeking information regarding Cecile's brothers, Louis and Joseph Anenharison dit Anenharisonrisi dit Risse dit Visse, and would be very grateful if any of you who research the Annenharison/risi, Dicaire, or Dicker lines have any information about them beyond what I have been able to discover.
Thank you!I hope this posting finds you! Elizabeth Rice-Smith
