Temoins: Narcissa Montgrain, Benjamin Cazelet. J. L. Brault, s.j.

This maybe her family but she is not listed here but I am inclined to believe that this is her family here.

Children of JEAN-BAPTISTE RIEL and MARGUERITE BOUCHER are: 2. i. LOUIS RIEL Senior, b. June 7, 1817, Ile-a- la-Crosse, Saskatchewan; d. January 21, 1864, St. Boniface, Manitoba. ii.

Does anyone out here have any other information that might be able to prove or disprove that this Jane is not the sibling of Louis Riel born here June 7 1817? From: Michippewa2@aol.com Subject: [Q-R] Reil Search Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2003 09:57:37 EST
