About les Indiens de la tribu mikmac des sauvages

This unknown daughter connection to Louis needs further research / documentation.

We know, based on Edmee's & Catherine's mtDNA that their mother's maternal haplogroup had to be U6a (Iberian/Portuguese ancestry) since that is what their's is; but,  it doesn't eliminate the possibility that the girl's maternal yDNA could of been native from either the Mi'kmac nation or one of the other tribes within the area, like Maliseet or Montagnais (Present day Innu (not Innuit). 

It has been rumoured that Henri Membertou was the son of a Basque/:Portuguese fisherman and a Mi'kmac mother. Having said this then it would be obvious that his yDNA through his sons to present day should have a European or Portuguese haplogroup if the story is correct. His only daughter "Marguerite" (that we are aware of) her mtDNA to present should be a native haplogroup.

Personally, I would like to see this unknown daughter removed from Louis' tree as we don't have enough evidence to prove that she is his daughter or even one of Louis' brother's daughter. Who knows, maybe she is one of Henri's brother's daughter or granddaughter. At best we can say she was Metis (father native & mother Portuguese) and possibly a member of the membertou clan.
