I have a number of Hache /Gallant lines in my husbands Losier ancestry. Can someone please explain exactly who in that family was native. My husbands ancestry comes down from the sons of Michel Hache (1662 - 1737). Michel was the son of Pierre L'Arche.
There are various lines of descent from two of Michel's sons - Pierre and Charles.
Pierre Hache had 4 sons - Joseph, Fabien, Louis and Xavier.
They were all my husbands 4x gt grandfathers.
Louis Hache married Judith Hache in 1790, Shippagan, New Brunswick. Judith was his second cousin (being the great grand daughter of Michel's other son Charles Hache).
Louis and Judith had a son Sebastien. Sebastien was the 3x gt grandfather and his son Gustave Hache the 2nd gt grandfather. Gustave married Melanie Gionet. Their daughter Marie Hache married Ernest Jean - my husbands gt grandfather - in St Isidor, Gloucester County, NB in 1902. Their daughter Eliana Jean (aka Liona), married my husbands grandfather Ovide Losier in Kapuskasing Ontario in 1929.
As far as we can tell there is no native blood in this line. We all look caucasian. So where exactly is the native blood?
Going back to the 4x gt grandfathers - Fabien's son Andre Hache had a daughter named Francoise. Francois married Germain Noel and their daughter Marie Noel married my husbands gt grandfather Francois (Frank) Losier in 1896, St Isidor, Gloucester Country, NB.
And the last 4x gt grandfather was Joseph Hache. His son was David Andre Hache. David-Andre had 2 daughters, Marceline Hache and Seraphie Hache.
Marceline Hache's daughter Melanie Gionet, married the afore mentioned Gustave Hache.
Seraphie Hache's daughter Celina Gauvin (my 2x gt grandmother), married Gustave Duclos, and this line ends with my mother was born a Duclos and married a Losier.
I would love to know who the native person was who married onto the Hache family. Thank you.
