It is interesting to see all of the variations on the spelling of Laverdure. I have never seen it spelled any other way. Anyhow, my maiden name is Laverdure and I am an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians, Belcourt North Dakota. Laverdure is a French name and it wouldn't surprise me if most people with this last name weren't of French-Canadian/Native(Aboriginal) decent. Here in Belcourt we call ourselfs Mitchifs, but we are essentially the same as the Metis people of Canada. Mitchif is a mixed language the Metis people speak. After being settled on this reservation, the people identified with name of the language. In fact, many of us here have cousins, aunts, uncles, and distant relatives across the border.

My cousin and I have been searching for a Josette Laverdure who married Jean Baptiste Valade dit Lajeunesse in the abt 1770-1777. We haven't had any luck with the Prdh and the Archives in Quebec finding their marriage record but their names show up on a birth record for one son and a marriage record for another. We believe Josette might be the Native link in our family. I'd appreciated any info that might provide clues to Josette.

Dear Julie: Wayne and I are going to the Lavoie reunion on Jun 7,2003 at L'Assumption Que. We are going to camp around the Papineau area 2 reasons it will be easy for us to commute to the reunion and easy for our daug to join us there. Next we will be in an area where I believe Josette Laverdure was and that is around Embrum, Ont. If she is who I think she is, we should be able to prove Indian heritage but the problem is to find her, she may be the mother of our elusive Francois who was b 1797 and I think she may have been b 1777 wish us luck Barb

Hi Julie: The Lavoie Reunion was great then we had a grad, wedding/going away party for our daug Amanda and so-in-law Josh on Jun 21 next had relatives visit for awhile slow replying did not find out abt Josette but did find out that our Francois may have came from St. Roch L'Assomption QC and this is the area of the Lavoie so your Josette maybe came from there, working on this we have a Jean Baptiste Zephirin Laverdure b May 20 1775 m to Angelique Deziel Labreche b 1776 both b at St Roch mMay 23 1798 St. Roch 12 children but got to find birth cert. as the dates seem wrong for the children so one of these children could have been the parents of Josette. Let you know when I progress. God Bless Barb

Hi Jessell: I will give you a little info that Wayne and I know, around 1665 France sent what was known as the Carignan Troops to Montreal to help protect as both the French and English were having trouble with the Iriquois tribe(in my books it was their LAND) anyway with that troop of 1300 soldiers 12 were named Laverdure, after 3years of service they were given a gift of land grant along the St. Lawrence at such places as L'Assomption, Repentigny, Lavaltrie and so on. Now whether the ones from Quebec are Metis we don't know. Wayne has relatives Lariviere, Lavoie, Dupuis, Ranger, Tessier-Lavigne, but we cannot prove Metis Status just because one resembles such one must have proof. I think Louis Laverdure left Quebecand travelled to Pembina Mountain early 1800's. He married Lisa Walla Walla. Our brick wall Francois Laverdure either came from Que. or Pembina area we don't know he was born abt 1797. Everybody kept telling us Laverdure was a dit name well I finally proved they came from France with that name 12 of them just got to work on first names. Take care Barb

Hello Barb:
As you can see from the date of our last correspondence, it's been quite a while. I had put my researching on hold due to major renovations on our house. I am now ready to resume my research. I was just wondering have you located any leads on Josette Laverdure's parents or any other info about her? Thanks Julie
