I have a 20-page genealogy and family history of this family and its importance to American History. Marie is better known as "The Madonna of the Oregon Pass", and his father played a key role in the Lewis & Clark Expedition. History too long to paste in here, but anyone who wants a copy, glad to send it. Contact me at
John Dorion's own family is extensive and well-known along the Saskatchewan River from Prince Albert to Grand Rapids.
If Cindy Turner receives this message, I would be interested to know how John is your ggggrandfather -- how does that line run?
