I'm glad to see such a timely response. I have plenty of information on Francois Trudell. He was born in 1803 in Quebec then came to Minnesota some time around 1826? He met and married Iciyapewin Wambdisun ( a Full-Blood Sioux Indian) who was baptised Mary and she became Mary Trudell. They had many of children. One of who was Antoine who in turn had a son named John who had my mother.How much info do you have and what do you need. I am just starting to search on Francois before he came to the U.S. I do not know who his parents are yet.
