Re: Henry Lancour and Catherine Loiselle Duffina
I have since found out also that it is possible that the name Lancour derived from the name Lincourt in Canada. If anyone has more info on this I will be happy to read more.
Henry's grandmother and grandfather were Jane Pond and William Lancour. Jane has her name on a document of land grant from Ulysses S. Grant. This land was supposed to be in Traverse City, Michigan. I would like to hear if she ever received the land. I am thinking that perhaps this was part of a broken treaty and part of the reason why we have the tuition waiver for the Annishinabbek. If someone knows any more about this I would love to talk with you. I am still looking for photographs of Henry Lancour and his family.
