Looking for information on the George or Marion Perle (M. P. Elmore) families. I believe they worked for the Hudson Bay Co. in the 1870's or 1880's. Marion Perle had several (perhaps 8) children by an Indian woman. He had a son George who married Christine Lazotte (?) adopted daughter of a French trapper Pierre Lazotte. This is according to family legend, nothing documented. Christine born 1866 and George born 12-23 1865 in Good Hope (?). They were married March 30, 1886. Daughter Pearl born Dec. 20, 1886 in Fort Vermillion. None of above information is documented. although a great source of family gossip. Apparently Marion Perle and the Indian were never married and Marion eventually left Canada and settled in Seymour, IA in the late 1890's, early 1900's. Would love to make contact with someone who could at least send me in the right direction to search.
