My grandmother said she was 1/4th Algonquin (I don't know which exact tribe). But so far, I've only been able to find far distant Indian connections to the Quesnel family from the 1700's. Well, I just found on the 1880 U.S. Census two Indian Quesnelles, Jos. (male, b.1865) and Julie (female, b.1869). They were found in Deer Lodge, Montana. They were both born in Montana with parents born in Canada. Anyone looking for Indian roots in the Quesnelle family should do what I'm about to do and look into these people. I'll share what I find at this message board!
