Generation 2 (con't)

She married PASCHAL BRUNET on 21 Jul 1835 in St. Polycarpe, Soulanges County, Quebec, Canada, son of Antoine Brunet and Charlotte Roy. He was born on 10 Apr 1804 in St-Polycarpe, Soulanges County, Quebec, Canada. He died on 10 Oct 1881 in South Arm, East Jordan, Charlevoix County, Michigan.

Notes for Marie-Angeline LaLonde:

An internet search of Ancestry World Tree (Ancestry.com) found a match confirming that Harriet (Burney) Brunet Gagnon is the daughter of Paschal (Burney) Brunet and Marie-Angelique (Angeline) LaLonde. In that LaLonde family tree, he is listed as Pascal (Burney) Brunet. The person who made the family tree available (suzi63376@aol.com) has cited the source of the information as a three volume set of the LaLonde Family, in the East Jordan, Michigan public library. The LaLonde reference also lists the other children of Paschal LaLonde and Marie-Angeline LaLonde. The LaLonde Family Tree is the basis of the line from Marie-Angeline LaLonde to Francois-Phillipe LaLonde.

When her husband Paschal Brunet died in 1881, he was identified as "widowed."

Notes for Paschal Brunet:

Paschal (Burney) Brunet was born April 10, 1804, most likely near St-Polycarpe, Soulanges County, Quebec, Canada. This small town is across the Ottawa River from the Isle-de-Montreal (where the Ottawa River joins the St. Lawrence River), where Quebec, Ontario, and New York meet.

The family surname in Canada is spelled "Brunet." Brunet and Burney sound phonetically close, and the name may have been misspelled as Burney in the US. The Brunet and LaLonde families are predominately found in the area near to Montreal. Many with these surnames trace to Soulanges and Vaudreuil Counties.

The Brunet family also used a dit name Letang (L'etang or Lestang), therefore some family members are found as "dit Letang Brunet" or "Brunet dit Letang." A Jean Baptiste Brunet dit L'etang was hired on June 3, 1754 by Toussant Pothier for the fur trade at Michilimachinac, Michigan (near Sault St-Marie).

The Brunet family was among the first settlers in New France. Paschal's ancestor, Michel Mathieu Brunet, was born in Tourouvre, Perche, France in 1638. He married Marie Blanchard, who was born in Rouen, Normandie, France, in New France (Quebec) on November 10, 1667.

Paschal Brunet is a frequently recurring name in the family. Evidently, there was a Vicaire of Longueuil named Paschal Brunet in 1834, for whom Rue Brunet in Longueuil, Quebec is named.

Paschal [Brunet] Burney arrived in the US in 1866. He was listed in the 1870 census for Leelanau Township. He was not there in 1860, and is gone to Charlevoix County before 1880 (he died there in 1881). Harriet (Burney) Brunet Gagnon, in the 1910 census, said that she was born in Canada and arrived in the U.S. from Canada in 1866. Paschal stayed in Leelanau County long enough to marry off two of his daughters- Harriet Brunet to Georges Gagnon in 1868 and Elizabeth Brunet ["Burney"] to Chester Josiah Stebbins in 1870 (The Leelanau Marriage record, Vol I #7). In the 1910 census, Harriet listed 1866 as the year she emigrated to Michigan from Canada. It seemed too much of a coincidence that a family with the unusual surname Burney that is unrelated to Harriet Burney Gagnon and Elizabeth Burney Stebbins lived in Leelanau Township in 1870. An internet search of Ancestry World Tree (Ancestry.com, search on Anthony Burney) found a match confirming that Harriet Brunet Gagnon is a daughter of Paschal Burney (File name 27259 and file name 143595). This record indicates that the family surname is actually BRUNET. In that LaLonde family tree, he is listed as Pascal (Burney) Brunet. The person who made the family tree available (suzi63376@aol.com) has cited the source of the information as a three volume set of the LaLonde Family, in the East Jordan, Michigan public library. The LaLonde reference also lists the other children of Paschal LaLonde and Marie-Angeline LaLonde.

The 1870 census listing in leelanau County is: Paschal Burney 65 FRANCE (born abt. 1805), his

Generation 2 (con't)

wife Angeline 54 FRANCE (born abt. 1816), Louisa 16 CANADA, Augusta 14 CANADA [actually Augustus per 1880 census], John 10 CANADA, and Merceline 5 CANADA. Paschal is a laborer, and the family is at dwelling 129, family 125 in Leelanau Township. The reference to FRANCE is national heritage, not birthplace. We know the ancestors of Brunet and Lalonde were in Quebec, Canada since the 17th century. The Ancestry World Tree/LaLonde Family Tree listing for Paschal Brunet lists his place of birth as Canada.

Living close by in Northport, Leelanau Township in the 1870 census, is Paschal's son Anthony Burney 23 CANADA and his wife Betsy 22 CANADA. He is a laborer, and they were married September 1869.

An Antwine Burney was married to Adelheid Browbeek on October 26, 1870 in Leelanau, Michigan (Lake Leelanau or the County? Source: FamilySearch). We don't know how he is related to Paschal Brunet. I suspect he is the same person as Anthony AKA Antoine Burney.

A migration pattern from Quebec, Canada to New York to Ontario, Canada to Michigan is indicated by the places of birth of Paschal's children. Adelia Brunet was born in St. Lawrence County, New York in 1840. This NY County is across the St. Lawrence River from Ontario, Canada, where NY, Onrario, and Quebec all meet. It is close to Soulanges County, Quebec, where Paschal and Angeline were married. The other kids were born in Canada, most likely in Normanby Settlement, Grey County, Ontario, Canada. Based on his daughter Harriet's 1910 census declaration, the family probably arrived in Michigan in 1866.

In 1870, there is a William Burney 31 NY (born about 1839) living in South Arm Township, Charlevoix County, Michigan. He is possibly another son of Paschal, born during Paschal's sojourn in New York?

In the 1880 Census the family is in Charlevoix County:

Listed in the 1870 census for Northport, Leelanau Township, is Anthony Burney 23 CANADA (b. 1847) and his wife Betsy 22 CANADA (b. 1848). He is a laborer, and they were married September 1869. He is not there in 1880, and all obvious Soundex also come up short in the US and Canada.

Generation 3

9. JOHN3 LALONDE (Misc.2 LaLonde, Augustin1 LaLonde) was born in 1819 in Of Roxborough (Moose Creek), Stormont County, Ontario. He married UNKNOWN.

Notes for John Lalonde:

According to the death certificate of Margaret Lalonde Gagnon, her father is Joseph Lalonde, and her mother is variously reported as Felicite St. Marcelle or Viluer Lautier. However, Alfred Lalonde is identified as her brother in her obituary. Since they were both living in Northport, Michigan we accept this as fact. Alfred's father was listed as John LaLonde in his death record. Alfred's wife provided the information, and would likely knbow the name of her father-in-law.

In the 1871 Ontario census, there are three Lalonde of appropriate age to possibly be a parent, all in Stormont Roxborough: Alexis 56 (b. 1815) , Joseph 41 (b. 1830), and John 52 (b. 1819). This Joseph b. 1830 would have been only 16 when she was born. John looks more likely, 27 years her senior.

It is entirely possible their father's name was Joseph-Jean (John), Jean-Joseph, Jean-Baptiste, etc.

There is a Roman Catholic Cemetery in Roxborough Twp. Stormont County; Concession 7 at Moose Creek.

In October of 1792 the old District of Lunenburg (1788-1792) was renamed the Eastern District and included the present counties of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott, Russell, Leeds, Grenville and Carleton. In the Act of 1798, proclaimed in 1800, the Counties of Leeds, Grenville and Carleton were separated out of the Eastern District to become the Johnstown District. In March of 1816, the counties of Prescott and Russell became the Ottawa District. As of January 1850 all Districts were abolished and the Eastern District became the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry and remain the United Counties to this day. As of January 1998, Cornwall Township and Osnabruck Township were amalgamated into South Stormont Township; Roxborough Township, Finch Township and the Village of Finch were amalgamated into North Stormont Township.


John Lalonde and UNKNOWN had the following children:

i. MARGARET M.4 LALONDE was born on 18 May 1846 in Moose Creek, Township of Roxborough, Stormont County, Ontario, Canada. She died on 05 Feb 1927 in Leelanau Township, Leelanau County, Michigan.

She married (2) FRANCIS BRABANT about 1863. He was born about 1840 in Canada. He died about 1867 in Ohio or Leelanau County, Michigan.

She was 80 years 5 months at her death, which also indicating a birthdate in 1846. Moose Creek is in Stormont County, Ontario (near Ottawa), close to Soulanges and Vaudreuil Counties, Quebec, the locus of the LaLonde family in New France. According to her death certificate, her father is Joseph Lalonde, and her mother is variously reported as Felicite St. Marcelle or Viluer

Lautier. However, Alfred Lalonde is identified as her brother in her obituary. Alfred's father was listed as John LaLonde in his death record (probably actually Jean).

This Joseph b. 1830 would have been only 16 when she was born. John looks more likely.

Margaret married to Francis Brabant in Ohio and they lived in Ohio where they had a son Frank in 1866. She married Samuel Gagnon after the death of Francis, in 1867. She was listed as the wife of Samuel Gagnon in the 1870, 1880, 1900 and 1910 census for Leelanau Township. Samuel died in 1917. In the 1920 census for Leelanau Twp., she's listed as Margaret 74 CAN living with William 45 MI, and his brother Adolph M. 49 MI. Her son Frank Brabant 55 MI is also living there, as is granddaugher Winifred 8 MI.

During Mrs. Gagnon's more than sixty years of residence here, she has made many dear friends, some who have gone on before, while others remain who will miss her kindly smile and words of cheer and advice. Her daughter Mrs. Hite together with her two sons of the home were with her at the time of her death. Mrs. Wrisley having suffered a severe attack of the flu, was unable to be with her during her last illness. Funeral services were held Tuesday morning from the Catholic church, of which she was a faithful member, always attending worship when health would permit.

Alfred is identified as a brother of Margaret LaLonde Gagnon b. 1846 (Mrs. Samuel)

Generation 3 (con't)

in her obituary. Her father (and presumeably his) is Joseph LaLonde, according to her death certificate. His father, however, was listed as John (Jean?) LaLonde in his death record. In the 1871 census, there are three Lalonde of appropriate age to possibly be his parent: Alexis 56 Stormont Roxborough (1815) , Joseph 41 (1830), and John 52 (1819). The latter is a strong potential parent; a look at the 1860 census would shed light.

iii. FRANK LALONDE was born about 1860 in Moose Creek, Ontario, Canada. He died after 1927 in Prob. Moose Creek, Ontario, Canada.

iv. MATHIAS LALONDE was born about 1860 in Moose Creek, Stormont County, Ontario, Canada. He died after 1927 in Prob. Moose Creek, Ontario, Canada.

This Joseph b. 1830 would have been only 16 when she was born. John looks more likely, 27 years her senior.

She married GEORGES GAGNON on 03 Mar 1868 in Suttons Bay, Leelanau County, Michigan, son of Michel Gagnon and Monique Fortin. He was born on 23 Nov 1826 in St. Pierre et St. Paul de la Baie St. Paul, Charlevoix-Ouest, Quebec, Canada. He died on 09 Apr 1899 in Leelanau Twp., Leelanau County, Michigan.

Notes for Harriet Brunet:

Harriet Brunet [Burney) was born June 6, 1842 in Canada, most likely in Normanby Settlement, Grey County, Ontario, Canada. Her line traces to Mathieu Brunet [dit Lestang] b. 1638, who was the first Brunet settler in New France [line researched by Real Gagnon from baptism records in Quebec, Canada].

Harriet's father Paschal Brunet [Burney) is listed in the 1870 census for Leelanau Township: Paschal Burney [Brunet] 65 FRANCE (born abt. 1805), his wife Angeline 54 FRANCE (born abt. 1816), Louisa 16 CANADA, Augusta 14 CANADA, John 10 CANADA, and Merceline 5 CANADA. Paschal is a laborer, and the family is at dwelling 129, family 125 in Leelanau Township. The French family name is Brunet, phonetically rendered as Burney. Paschal was actually born in Canada, a French-Canadian.

Harriet is recorded as being 25 years old in 1868 on her marriage record (born about 1843), in the 1870 census she is age 37 CAN (born about 1843), in the 1880 census age 44 CAN (born about 1836) , in the 1900 CAN census age 61 (born June 1838), and in the 1910 census she is 69 years old CAN (born about 1841). Her death record indicates that she was 74 years and 7 months old when she died on January 28, 1915. That would indicate a birthdate of August 1840. So we don't know her birth date from these; only a range from June 1838-1843. The Ancestry World Tree, however, lists a documented birth date of June 6, 1842. We will use this as her birth date.

Paschal Brunet was not in Leelanau County in 1860, and had gone to Charlevoix County before 1880. On the 1910 census, Harriet listed 1866 as the year she emigrated to Michigan from Canada. It seemed too much of a coincidence that a family with the unusual surname Burney that

Generation 3 (con't)

is unrelated to Harriet Burney Gagnon lived in the same small Michigan township in 1870. An internet search of Ancestry World Tree (Ancestry.com, search on Anthony Burney) found a match confirming that Harriet Brunet Gagnon is a daughter of Paschal Burney (File name 27259 and file name 143595). This record indicates that the family surname may actually be BRUNET. in 1870. Another Brunet daughter, Elizabeth "Burney" married Chester Josiah Stebbins in 1870 (The Leelanau Marriage record, Vol I #7).

In the 1910 census, Harriet listed 1866 as the year she emigrated to Michigan from Canada, the same year as Paschal Brunet. An internet search of Ancestry World Tree (Ancestry.com, search on Anthony Burney) found a match confirming that Harriet Brunet Gagnon is a daughter of Paschal Burney (File name 27259 and file name 143595). This record indicates that the family surname is actually BRUNET. In that LaLonde family tree, he is listed as Pascal (Burney) Brunet. The person who made the family tree available (suzi63376@aol.com) has cited the source of the information as a three volume set of the LaLonde Family, in the East Jordan, Michigan public library. The LaLonde reference also lists the other children of Paschal LaLonde and Marie-Angeline LaLonde, including Elizabeth.

Family tradition indicates that Harriet was of Native American heritage. However, since her parents claim French heritage, this does not appear to prove out. Family legend is that Harriet was hired by Georges Gagnon to care for his young children after his wife Elizabeth LeFevre died between 1863-1866. Georges and Harriet Brunet married in 1868, and together had at least eleven children.

According to a marriage record at Leland Courthouse, there was a wedding on March 3, 1868 in Suttons Bay between George Gagnon, age 40 (b. 1828) and Hariet Bienar, age 25 years (born about 1843). Harriet is from Canada, and Georges from Gulf River, Canada. Her name is difficult to read on the marriage record: the surname appears to be Bienar in one place and Burnar in another.

In various other records her surname is spelled: Harriet Burney (3), Henrica Burney, Harriet Berney, Harriet Barney (2), Harriett Barney, Harriet Burnau (Barney), Henrica Burna, Harriet Bruns (?), Henrica Bourrien, Henrica Brunain, Henrietta Burnien, and Harrietta Bennett. We believe that these are all phonetic attempts to spell the French surname BRUNET, Burney, Barney, Bernier, or Bernard; all French surnames that sound phonetically similar. The other spelling variations are suspect, as they don't correspond to known French surnames.

She is consistently identified as Harriet on the marriage record, and on the 1870, 1880, 1900, and 1910 census records- so we can be sure her given name in Harriet. Based on the attempts to spell her surname, we will go with the French spelling, Brunet for her surname. So in this family history she will be listed as Harriet Brunet. The Ancestry World Tree record confirmed that she was indeed named Harriet Brunet.

Harriet is listed with her husband Georges Gagnon in the 1870 and 1880 census for Leelanau Township.

In the 1900 census for Leelanau Township, Harriet 61 CANADA (FR) born June 1838 is living on the family farm with her children David 24 MI born February 1876, Reedie 18 MI born May 1882, and Bell 23 born March 1887.

In the 1910 census for Leelanau Township, Harriet is 69 years old CANADA (FR), living on the family farm with her son David Gagnon who is 38 MI. It says she came to the U.S. in 1866.

Harriet Gagnon died January 28, 1915 (Death Record Book 3, page 160). Georges Gagnon died April 09, 1899. He is buried in St. Wenceslaus Church Cemetery in Gill's Pier, Michigan. There is a grave marker next to Georges with no name carved, which we believe may be Harriet's.

My father, Willard Gill b. 1911, remembered being cared for as a small child by his grandmother Harriet Brunet Gagnon. He remembers her as being "ugly," i.e., ill-tempered.

Generation 3 (con't)

Notes for Georges Gagnon:

Georges Gagnon was born November 23, 1826 in St. Pierre et St. Paul de la Baie St. Paul, Charlevoix-Ouest, Quebec, Canada. The listing in "Genealogie Descendants de Jean Gagnon Naissances, Mariages et Deces," Tome I, II, III, and IV, by Jean Paul Gagnon, published 1999, Tous droits de reproduction, confirms this birth date and place of Georges' birth (at least we know he was baptized in Baie-St-Paul).

Based on census records, possible birth dates for Georges range from 1825 to 1828. We are going with 1826, as that is the date recorded in family records, on his grave marker, and in "Genealogie Descendants de Jean Gagnon."

According to the biography of his brother Samuel in "The Traverse Region," published by H. R. Page & Co., Chicago 1880, p. 241, and in census declarations, his father Michel Gagnon brought his family from Quebec to Detroit (Springwells) in 1835, when Georges was nine years old.

According to the "History of Leelanau Township," page 23:

"Mitchell Gagnon and his sons (Michel) Israel, Samuel, George, Marsh and Henry, had migrated from Detroit to the Upper Peninsula where they worked in the smelting of copper. During the slack time of this work, Mitchell and his sons came down into Leelanau County which had recently been put on the market by the Government."

While in the Detroit area, Michel Gagnon and sons lived in Springwells Township. Springwells is southwest of Detroit, on the Ecorse River. In 1929, Springwells Township and the village of Dearborn were combined when Dearborn was incorporated. Today, it is known as the home of Henry Ford and many automobile assembly plants are located there (perhaps on top of the Gagnon farm).

Information concerning the life of Georges Gagnon as a young adult is found in the Burton Historical Society Records at the Main Library of Detroit, Michigan. Here are archived the records of St. Anne de Detroit Catholic Church. St. Anne's is the oldest church in Michigan, and the second oldest of any denomination in the U.S. It was founded shortly after Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac arrived on the Detroit River with two priests in 1701. It became a diocese in 1833:

Georges married Elizabeth LeFevre at St. Anne's Parish in Detroit, Michigan on August 7, 1849. At the time of the wedding, George was 21 (born about 1828) and Elizabeth was 17 (born about 1832). His parents are listed as Michael and Monica Fortin Gagnon, and her parents are Ludovici (Ludwick) and Mariae St. Marie. Witnesses are Michael [Michel} Gagnon and Petro (Pierre) Lefevre (Film # 1286, Record 15). The priest who married them was Fr. Peter Paul Hennaert, who later became vicar-general of the Detroit diocese.

We do not find Georges Gagnon (Soundex) listed as a head of household in Michigan in 1850. I looked through all of Springwells- found little Henry Ford 2 years old, but no George Gagnon. In the 1850 MI census, a George Gagnon is living in Monynagon Twp., Wayne County, near Detroit. This George Gagnon is 40 years old (born 1810), and is married to Marie 24-- not the right George.

Georges Gagnon records his age as 24 years old in the 1850 census and 28 in 1854, therefore born in 1826 (I can't find where I got this information!!).

George Gagnon and John Maingo were witnesses at a wedding of Julian LeFevre and Tercille Maingo at St. Anne's Parish, Detroit, Michigan on October 22, 1851 (Burton Collection).

The baptisms of four children of Georges and Elizabeth LeFevre are recorded at St. Anne's de Detroit Catholic Parish (Burton Collection):

1. Elizabeth Cleophaam Gagnon. Born June 15, 1851. Baptized by Fr. Hennaert on August 1, 1851 (Film 1286, page 58). We find no later record for her; she is not in the 1860 census and has presumedly died.

2. Augustinum Gagnon. Baptized August 1, 1855 by Fr. Montard (p.142). This is Augustus or Gus.

Generation 3 (con't)

3. Monique Gagnon. Born April 4, 1861. Baptized April 7, 1861 (p.2). She is known as Mina.

4. Lucia Elizabeth Gagnon. Born December 5, 1862. Baptized December 14, 1862. Witnesses were Marcus Gagnon (most likely Michel's son Marc/Marsh Gagnon) and Lucia Niger. She is known as Lucy Elizabeth, but goes by Elizabeth or Lizzie.

An interesting possible migration pattern emerges from these baptisms, and birth dates disclosed
in census records for other children:
1. Georges Gagnon, Jr. b. 1850 Not baptized at St. Anne's Parish, Detroit
2. Elizabeth Cleophaam- Baptized in Detroit in 1851
3. John Gagnon b. 1853 Not baptized at St. Anne's
4. Henry Gagnon, b. 1854 Not baptized at St. Anne's
5. Augustus (Gus) b. 1855 Baptized in Detroit 1855
6. Possible daughter b. 1857 Not baptized at St. Anne's
7. Alice Gagnon b. 1859 Not baptized at St. Anne's
8. Monique (Mina b 1861 Baptized in Detroit 1861
9. Lucia Elizabeth (Elizabeth, Lizzie)- Baptized in Detroit 1862

We know that Georges was spending time in the Upper Peninsula and in Leelanau County as well as in Detroit (Springwells Township). Perhaps the above births of children who are not baptized in Detroit are indicative of the absences of the family from Springwells?

"In 1856, or thereabouts, the Mitchell Gagnons returned to Northport. Sons Samuel, George, and Henry purchased additional lands after 1856. All these families either purchased or pre-empted many acres of land in Sections 21 and 33 above Townline 32," (History of Leelanau Township, Ibid, p. 44).

I have a picture of Delia Gagnon Gill standing in front of the Georges Gagnon log cabin in which she was born. There is a notation on the picture that the cabin was "built in 1856." It may have been built by Michel or the other Gagnon's. We do not know when Georges and family began to occupy the house. According to "History of Leelanau Township," p. 150, this log cabin was used as a toolshed by Ralph Nelson and in 1979 was purchased by John O. Esslinger, M.D. and disassembled by Lars R. Lee, with the intent to re-assemble it on another location. I remember visiting Grandma's log cabin when I was a child.

A George Gagnon of Wayne County was granted land patent 962 in Antrim County for 150 acres on January, 1859: lots 1 and 2, and the NW quarter of Sec. 15 in Twp. 29 N of range 9 W. Did he live for a time across Grand Traverse Bay from Leelanau County in Antrim County? If so, he is back in Springwells for the 1860 census.

In the 1860 census for Springwells Township, Wayne County, Michigan, Georges Gagnon is listed as George "Gamia" 42 CAN, head of household, a laborer, and his wife Elizabeth 28 CAN; children George 10 MI (born 1850), John 7 MI (born 1853), Henry 5 MI (born 1855), Augustus 4 MI (born 1856), and Alice 1 MI (born 1859). Their first child, Elizabeth b. 1851 is not listed with them and has presumably died.

Living next door is Georges' sister Mary (Marie-Bibiane) Gagnon York: Frank York 50 CAN (b. 1810), an engineer; and his wife Mary 40 CAN (b. 1820); and children Henry 19 CAN (b. 1851), a laborer; and Amanda 17 MI (b. 1853). Mary is Marie-Bibiane Gagnon, daughter of Michel. Mary and Frank later take in a son, Samuel Israel, of her brother Samuel and his wife Archange Goulet who died in childbirth

Georges' father Michel (Gonnyan) and Georges' brothers Samuel and Henry are in Leelanau Township in the 1860 census.

On February 6, 1862 George Gagnon of the Township of Leelanau in the County of Grand Traverse (before Leelanau County was split off) bought 80 acres of land in that same Township from George D. and Lucy A. Fuller of Cuyahuga County, Ohio for $250. The Warranty Deed was

Generation 3 (con't)

recorded on March 10, 1862 on page 439 of Land Records in Leelanau/Grand Traverse County. This is the first mention of Georges in Leelanau County. As George is described "of Leelanau Township," he evidently was there before February 6, 1862.

On February 20, 1862 George Gagnon and his wife Elizabeth Gagnon of the Town of Springwells and County of Wayne, State of Michigan sold that same 80 acres of land in Leelanau Twp. for $250 to John R. Grant (or Grout) also of Springwells. George and Elizabeth appeared before a Notary Public in Wayne County and their signatures/marks were notarized on February 20, 1862. The deed was recorded on 10 March 1862 in Grand Traverse/Leelanau County (p.440 of Land Records).

From these land transactions, one would surmise that Georges was in Leelanau Township on February 6, 1862, that both Georges and Elizabeth were in Springwells on February 20, 1862 when they appeared before a notary, and that George was probably back in Leelanau County on March 10, 1862 to record the two transactions (these two deeds and later deeds clearly transacted in Leelanau/Grand Traverse County in 1863 are all written in a distinctive back-slanting hand). Elizabeth, at least, was back in Springwells for the birth and baptism of her daughter Lucia Elizabeth in December 1862.

We know that Georges was in Springwells in 1862 when he appeared before a Notary. We know he was in Leelanau County when he was married there to his second wife Harriet Brunet in 1868. We do not know when between 1862 and 1868 he moved to Leelanau County for good. Most likely, the Georges Gagnon family relocated to Leelanau County about early 1863.

Legend is that Georges and Elizabeth LeFevre had 12 to 14 children together. However, we have only found records for eight children. Some may have died as infants, as there are gaps in the birth dates of the children.

Elizabeth LeFevre Gagnon evidently died about 1863-1866, sometime after her last daughter Lucy Elizabeth was born in December 1862, either in Detroit or in Leelanau Township. Since there is not a burial record for her at St. Anne's in Detroit, it is likely that she died in Leelanau County (death records were not kept until 1867). She most likely died before 1866, when Georges' second wife, Harriet Brunet, came to the US from Canada according to the 1910 census for Leelanau Township. Family legend says that Hariett was hired to care for Georges' children after his first wife died, and then he married Harriet in Suttons Bay in 1868.

The wedding record of George Gagnon and Harriet Bienar (AKA Brunet or sounds like Burney) is listed Vol. 1 Number 2 at Leland Courthouse: On March 3, 1868 George Gagnon, age 40 (born abt. 1828) married in Suttons Bay to Harriett Bienar age 25 (b. abt. 1843). Witnesses were Martha and Harriet Sutton, who were the wife and daughter of Henry C. Sutton, founder of Suttons Bay in 1854. The Sutton's are listed in the Centerville Twp. census in 1860, and hale from New York.

Later research has indicated that Harriet's family name was Brunet, mispelled by English-speaking recorders of birth, marriage, and other records. Harriet is a daughter of Paschal Brunet AKA Burney and Marie-Angeline LaLonde, who lived briefly in Leelanau County before moving on to Charlevoix. Georges' profession is listed as blacksmith. It indicates George's place of birth as Gulf River, Canada and hers as Canada. Other sources place his birth at Baie St. Paul, Charlevoix-Ouest, Quebec, Canada. Perhaps his father Michel was in Gull River, a location for copper mining near Thunder Bay, Ontario, at the time of Georges' birth in 1826. Or, Georges may have been referring to the area on the St. Lawrence River near the Gulf of St. Lawrence, where he was born, as the "Gulf River."

Georges had 8 children that we know of with his first wife Elizabeth LeFevre, and 11 children with his second wife Harriett Brunet. Family tradition, however, indicates that there were 24 or 26 children in the two families. Some children may have died young, as they are not listed in the 1870 census. According to his obituary (below), there were twenty-four children with his two wives.

The 1870 Leelanau Twp. census lists: George 45 CAN (b. 1825), Harriet 27 CAN (b.1843) , Henry 16 MI (b. 1854), Augustus 14 MI (b. 1855), Alice 11 MI (b. 1859), ,Mina 9 MI (b. 1861), Elizabeth 6

Generation 3 (con't)

MI (b. 1864), and Ellen 1 MI (b. 1869). The first five are children of George's first wife Elizabeth

LeFevre, the last (Ellen or Helen) the child of second wife Harriet Brunet [Burney]. Eldest daughter Elizabeth Gagnon (born 1851) is not listed in the 1870 census; she may have died young, as she also was not in the 1860 census. Sons Georges, Jr. b. 1850 and John b. 1853 are not listed, they may be on their own, or died young. A possible daughter born in 1857 is also not listed in the 1870 Leelanau Twp. census; she would be only 13 years old in 1870.

The 1880 Leelanau Twp. census lists: George 54 CAN (b. 1826), Harriet 44 CAN (b.1836), Elizabeth 16 MI (b. 1864), Ellen 11MI (b. 1869), Adeline 10 MI (b. 1870), Louisa 7 MI (b. 1873), Harriet 6 MI (b. 1874), David 4 MI (b. 1876), Moses 2 MI (b. 1878), and Mary 3/12 MI born February 1880). Elizabeth is the youngest child of George's first wife Elizabeth LaFevre. Delia Gagnon (born August 20, 1874) is inexplicably missing from this census listing.

Georges owned an 80 acre farm in Leelanau Twp, T32N-R10-11 W (Nelson Road and Garthe Road), shown on the land plats of 1881). Georges' farm was adjacent to that of his brother Samuel. The family lived in a log cabin which was built in 1856, west of Northport on Nelson Road. Before St. Gertrude's Catholic Church was built in 1891, Mass was offered in this cabin, and the priest stayed at the nearby Gagnon home. The original Gagnon cabin was used for many years as a machine shed by Ralph Nelson. The cabin was dismantled in 1979 by John O. Esslinger, MD, with the intention of reconstructing it on another location. It was 27' x 24' in size and made of black ash.

Grand Traverse Herald, Aug. 18, 1881: "A little girl of Sam. Gagnon's and Geo. Gagnon's two little boys at Northport were severely burned a few days ago by the overturning of a boiler of hot water."

Georges Gagnon died April 09, 1899 at the age of 73 years 1 month (which would point to a birth date of May 1826). He is buried in St. Wenceslaus Church Cemetery in Gill's Pier, Michigan: Line E Lot 6. His grave marker and Record of Death (Book 1 & 2, page 118) both indicate that he was born in 1826 and died 1899.

OBITUARY, "Grand Traverse Herald, " April 13, 1899, p. 6: "George Gagnon died at his home Sunday evening. He was the father of a large family, twenty-four children, many of them whom survive him. He was an old and esteemed citizen, and his wife and family have the sympathy of the community."

Georges' wife Harriet [Brunet] Gagnon is listed as head of household on the family farm in the 1900 and 1910 census for Leelanau Township. She died in 1915. There is a grave marker to the left of Georges grave with no name carved, which we believe may be Harriet's resting place.

A family story is that Georges sent one of his sons to "the back 40" to fetch the cows. When the son returned cow-less, Georges sent him back with the admonition, "Don't come back until you find the cows!" Evidently the son could not find the cows, as he never came back. Actually, as the story goes, he did return years later as an adult, after Georges had died. According to Elizabeth Putnam Gill, the son who left was David; he walked to Northport and hired on as a cabin boy on one of the many "propellers" that docked there. He was back by 1900, living with his mother (his father Georges died in 1899).


Georges Gagnon and Harriet Brunet had the following children:

i. HELEN4 GAGNON was born on 16 Jan 1869 in Northport, Leelanau County, Michigan. She died in 1917 in Northport, Leelanau County, Michigan. She married WILLIAM HOWELL on 12 May 1891 in Northport, Leelanau County, Michigan, son of John Parnell Howell and Elizabeth Easterbrook. He was born in Sep 1852 in England. He died in 1912 in Northport, Leelanau, Michigan.

Notes for Helen Gagnon:

Helen Gagnon was born January 16, 1869 and was baptized on February 17, 1869. She is listed as Helen Gagnon on her baptism record (Kateri Tekakwitha Church,

Generation 3 (con't)

Suttons Bay, Michigan for baptisms in Leelanau Township). Her father is listed as

George Gagnon and her mother "Harrietta Bennett, " a novel mispelling for Harriet Brunet.

The 1870 and 1880 census list her as Ellen, however, she was known as Helen.

Elizabeth is the child of George's first wife Elizabeth LeFevre.

Helen and her sister Louisa married brothers, William and Henry Howell, sons of William P. and Elizabeth Easterbrook Howell, who arrived in Leelanau Township from England before 1856. Interestingly, the wife of William Gill was Martha Easterbrook also from England, Elizabeth's sister.

The 1900 census for Leelanau Township, lists Hellen 31 MI born Jan 1869 living with her husband Henry Howell 47 MI England born September 1852 and children Elsie L. 7 MI born July 1892, Clifford G. 6 MI born August 1893, Harriet E. 2 MI born Dec 1897, and Hazel H. 1 MI born Jan 1899. Also a servant.

He died between 1910-1920 in Leelanau County, Michigan.

Notes for Adeline Gagnon:

Adeline Gagnon was born abot 1870. We don't find a baptism record for her at Kateri Tekakwitha Church, Suttons Bay, Michigan for baptisms in Leelanau Township.

The 1880 Leelanau Twp. Census lists: George 54 (b. 1826), Harriet 44 (b.1836), Elizabeth 16 (b. 1864), Ellen 11 (b. 1869), Adeline 10 (b. 1870), Louisa 7 (b. 1873), Harriet 6 (b. 1874), David 4 (b. 1876), Moses 2 (b. 1878), and Mary 3/12 born February 1880).

A note in the Northport Herald, November 1889, "Northport- Mrs. C. Jones, since the death of her husband has rented the hotel and gone to Provemont to live with her brother." This is puzzling, as there are a bunch of kids born after 1889!

In the 1900 census, they are living in Suttons Bay Township: Charles 33 OH, Adaline 30 MI, Ketura 10 MI, Frances 8 OH, Alma 5 MI, George 3 MI. The record indicates they had 6 children, four of whom survived.

In the 1910 census they are living in Suttons Bay Township, Charles Jones 43 OH, Adeline 40 MI, Alma 16 MI, George 13 MI, Agnes 9 MI, Charles 7 MI, Rose 5 MI. The record indicates that they have been married 21 years and have 7 children, all living.

In 1920 Adeline Jones, a widow, is living in Leelanau Township: Adaline 58 MI, Agnes M. 18 MI, Charles I. 16 MI, Josephine R. 14 MI

In 1930, there are no Jones in all of Leelanau County!

v. DELIA R. GAGNON was born on 20 Aug 1874 in Northport, Leelanau County, Michigan. She died on 27 Apr 1955 in Traverse City, Grand Traverse County, Michigan. She married GEORGE GILL on 24 May 1894 in Northport, Leelanau, Michigan. He was born about 04 Mar 1864 in Torquay, Devonport, Devon, England. He died on 12 May 1928 in Northport, Michigan.

Notes for Delia R. Gagnon:

Delia R. Gagnon was born August 20, 1874. In her baptism record on December 5, 1874, she is called Mary Othilia Gagnon (Kateri Tekakwitha Church, Suttons Bay, Michigan for baptisms in Leelanau Township). Othilia was probably mispelled and she was intended to be Adelia, naming Delia after her mother's aunt Adelia Brunet. or, it could be the Latinized version of her name preferred by the Catholic church. She was known throughout her life as Delia. On the baptism record, her father is listed as George Gagnon and her mother as "Henrica Brunain" [AKA Harriet Brunet]. Her middle name may be Rosa, but I've not seen that in any records.

Delia 6 years old in 1880 is inexplicably missing from the 1880 Leelanau Twp. census for her father Georges Gagnon, which lists: George 54 (b. 1826), Harriet 44 (b.1836), Elizabeth 16 (b. 1864), Ellen 11 (b. 1869), Adeline 10 (b. 1870), Louisa 7 (b. 1873), Harriet 6 (b. 1874), David 4 (b. 1876), Moses 2 (b. 1878), and Mary 3/12 born February 1880). Elizabeth is the child of George's first wife Elizabeth Le Fevre.

Delia Gagnon married George Gill on May 24, 1894 in Provemont, Michigan. Fr. H. Ruessman performed the marriage ceremony. Delia was 19 years old, born at Northport, Michigan, and George Gill was 27 years old, born in Devon, England. He was a laborer. Together they had ten children.

According to my father, the family was quite poor. One of Delia's children died as an infant, one as a child, and three as young adults. From reading the obituaries, I envision Delia and George hoping for the best when an illness struck, seeking medical assistance only as a last resort due to lack of money.

Delia Gagnon Gill's husband George died in 1928 when my father Willard and uncles Leonard and Kinnie were still at home. Grandma Gill continued to live in the

Generation 3 (con't)

same house, and Uncle Leonard and his wife Aunt Angeline took care of her until she died in 1955.

Pictures of Delia in her middle years showed her to be an ample woman. As an older woman, she became a diabetic and had to restrict her consumption of sweets, which she sorely missed and complained about. She did beautiful crochet-work and knitting, and kept her grandchildren in hats, mittens and slippers, and the furniture well protected by doilies.

I remember Gramma Gill coming to visit us on our farm when I was a child. Since there was no bathroom on the upper floor of our farm house, Gramma required a chamber pot in her bedroom. It was my job to empty it for her. Delia Gagnon Gill died in 1955 at the age of 81.

Delia Gagnon's great grandmother, Marie-Marguerite Durette (wife of Louis Abraham Gagnon), was 1/8 Native American/Indian through her great-grandmother, Catherine Desgres Degre; documented with the baptism record of one of Catherine's children baptized in Quebec City. The family lived in the Gaspe Peninsula and came to Quebec to have the children baptized.

Catherine Desgres Degre was born about 1684 and died bef. January 5, 1758. She was 74 when she died. She is buried at Notre Dame, Quebec City. Page 500 of Jette notes that she is an "Amerindienne." Page 59 of the Lorette record says that the mother (Catherine) of the child being baptised in 1718, Marie Louise Girard, is "d'un nation sauvage," and the child is a metise. Tribal affiliation was probably Micmac, although Catherine could have been from one of the neighboring tribes such as Abenaki.

Catherine Degre married Etiennne Girard about 1705, and her daughter Marie-Francoise Girard was born about 1715. Marie-Francoise married Charles Durette on November 8, 1734, and was the mother of Jean Baptiste Durette born May 6, 1735. Jean Baptise married Marie-Boulianne Laberge on January 7, 1761, and to them was born Marie-Marguerite Durette on October 23, 1773. So Marie-Marguerite's great grandmother was Native American, and Marie-Marguerite was 1/8 Indian blood. Delia Gagnon would be 1/64 Indian, not much help in obtaining our 1832 Indian fishing rights! Many thought that Delia exhibited Indian characteristics (i.e. cheek bones, coloration), particularly in her later years. There was also family legend that our Gagonon ancestors included Native Americans, but Catherine Degre is the only documented ancestor I have found.

vi. DAVID GAGNON was born on 28 Mar 1876 in Leelanau Township, Leelanau County, Michigan. He died before 1930 in Possibly Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington. He married (1) EDNA MAY TERRY on 24 Nov 1910 in Northport, Leelanau County, Michigan, daughter of George Terry and Eva Phillips. She was born in 1888 in Michigan. She died in Possibly Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington. He married
(2) AGNES KOVARIK on 09 May 1899 in Provemont, Centerville Township, Michigan. She was born about 1881 in Leelanau County, Michigan. She died about 10 May 1900 in Northport, Leelanau County, Michigan.

Notes for David Gagnon:

Elizabeth is the child of George's first wife Elizabeth LeFevre.

Generation 3 (con't)

A family story is that Georges sent one of his sons to "the back 40" to fetch the cows. When the son returned cow-less, Georges sent him back with the admonition, "Don't come back until you find the cows!" Evidently the son could not find the cows, as he never came back. Actually, the story goes, he did return years later as an adult, after Georges had died. According to Elizabeth Putnam Gill, the son who left was David; he walked to Northport and hired on as a cabin boy on one of the many "propellers" that docked there. He was back by 1899 when David Gagnon married Agnes Kovarik who was living in Gill's Pier, Michigan May 09, 1899. A stillborn child was born on May 10, 1900, and it is said that Agnes also died in childbirth at that time.

In the 1900 census for Leelanau Township he is living with his mother (his father Georges died in 1899), Harriet Gagnon 61 CANADA (FR) born June 1838 is living on the family farm with her children David 24 MI born February 1876, Reedie 18 MI born May 1882, and Bell 23 born March 1887.

David married Edna May Terry on November 24, 1910 in Northport. In the census for 1920 he is in Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington David 43 MI, Edna M. 32 MI and son Heindel A. 3 2/12 MI. He's working in a ship yard.

In 1930, Heindel Gagnon 13 MI is boarding in Russellville, Multnomah, Oregon. Don't know what happened to David and Edna!

I find no listing for Iver Olson and Rose in the 1910 census for Northport Village or Leelanau Township. Don't know where they went; perhaps elsewhere in Leelanau County?

There is a Rose A. Stowe 1884 - 1960 in East Leland Cemetery. Not her, though-parents both from New York.

According to "The History of Leelanau Township," page 246, Chester Stebbins married Elizabeth Buirney (AKA Brunet or Burney) in 1870. The Leelanau Marriage record is for Chester Josiah Stebbins and Elizabeth Burney (Vol I #7). This has to be Elizabeth Brunet, born 1849, the daughter of Paschal Brunet/Burney, and the sister of Harriet Brunet/Burney who married Georges Gagnon. The name "Brunet" is pronounced something like "bur-nay," so various census-takers and other record-keepers often wrote it down like it sounded to them. The French-speakers were often illiterate and couldn't spell it out for them.

She's in the 1870 Leelanau Twp. census Elizabeth 30 CANADA with Chester 29 NY, Isadore 9 MI and Oscar 5 MI.

Paschal is not actually born in France, but in Quebec of French heritage.

In another source, there is a child of Paschal Brunet listed as a male, Augustin (Augustus). This may be a different person. A check of the 1880 census for Paschal Burney in Charlevoix County, Michigan cleared up the gender- male!
