About Tseyenetssa


Tseyentssa is the husband of Maraen and the father of Jacques. With his second wife, Qwilcetwke, he had 3 other children, Agathe (Agothe), Susep Joseph Semourlist, and (Chief) Andre Tenmesqet.

His date of birth is not known but his son Jacques was born in 1817 and it seems quite likely that he was born during the last decade of the eighteen century [BC Archives: Baptismal Records]. Tseyenetssa is evidently the same person as Iseyeneyssa who is the father of Jacques Sseyenetssa [British Columbia Marriage Registrations, 1859-1932; 1937, database with images, FamilySearch] https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JD87-DP2 Tseyenetssa is also the father of Joseph Soumouralskt [British Columbia Marriage Registrations, 1859-1932; 1937, database with images, FamilySearch] https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JD87-8XX
