Please note that there is no basis for the name "Iris". It is a
misinterpretation of a styalistic old script "G" as an "I". The name was
"Gris" which is french for the color "Grey". The parents of Charles
Henault are not certain as far as I can determine. Eileen, if you have
proof of his parentage I'd be most grateful for that confirmation.
I have the following information about Thomas and Marie Nipissing. I
believe they were already married when they left St. Regis and were
likely married in a Catholic ceremony as the reservation is known as the
Descendants of Thomas Gray
