Maria Rosalia Beaudin
After years of looking, I have finally identified my great-grandmother Mary Boardman as Maria Rosalia Baudin (or Beaudin) born on 10 Nov 1867 To Paul Baudin (or Beaudin or Baudett) and Harriet or Henriette Brule, baptised on 17 Nov 1867 at St. John the Baptist in Keeseville, New York. She was either 100% or 1/2 native American, so she either was adopted or inherited the native American ancestry through one or both of her parents.
She married Pierre Bousquet, aka Peter Booska, as his 2nd wife, and settled in Bristol, Vermont, having at least 10 children and caring for the children of Peter's deceased spouse Rosa Abair. Peter died in 1916 and she later married Nelson Santaw.
I would appreciate any information about the native American ancestry of her or her parents, and any other information or photos about this family.Particularly, the parentage of her father Paul is somewhat vague, as different researchers posting on the web have listed different parents.Paul Wilford "Borden" and his wife Harriet Brule are buried in Westport, New York.
