Cecile Visse is listed as 'sauvagesse'NOT 'squaw'. Those researching the records have not been able to establish exactly where her father was from, if he himself was part Native or full French. Another named he used was Annonharrison. Something to speculate about??? Her mother was Iroquois. Since many of the Dicaire's lived near or in Oka, many of them mixed-many of the Dicaire's also were in the fur trade and travelled, thus mixing with other groups as well. (ie- Red River, Metis and Wiscounsin Aboriginal people)Other names to check are Decorah, Decoeur, Decaire and Macaire. If you can acess the church records from the Oka (where they received a land grant after they were released- so yes if you have Dicaire ancestry, you would have ties there) area you would be amazed by the amount of mixing that actually occured, also Whata etc.
My personal view on the name Dicaire is the mix of Dicker, adding of the caire from Joncaire.
