I am doing my family tree and I am trying to find a connection between Francois Roussain and Charles Roussain. Francois is supposed to be Charles' father.Francois is apparently buried at Rainy River. Charles was born c.1821 at Lac la Pluie and married to Elizabeth Turner c. 1844.
I would also like any information about Elizabeth Turner. Who her mother and father are, or where they originated from. Francois was
a fur trader for the Northwest fur Company at Fond du lac until the Hudson Bay company took over.
There was also a Francois junior (also a fur trader and Charles' brother?) who attended the Chippewa Peace Commission in
Washington D.C. in 1854. Any assistance you can give me would be greatly appreciated. e-mail info to above listing or mail it to me at:
