Ledoux Ladoux

Michel Ledoux, his wife Eleonore (Bombardier), and the eldest of their children left Quebec and were at Belle Prairie, Morrison County, MN by the end of the 1850s. A James Ladoux (b. ca. 1840) and his wife Margaret (Trotochaud/Trotterchaud) had a son at Belle Prairie in 1867, and in the 1870 census were reported as living in Long Prairie Twp., Todd County, MN. James said he was born in Canada. He eventually settled with his family on the White Earth Reservation, where the children claimed Chipppewa blood through their mother, but also claimed that their father had been a white man. Does anyone have a clue as to whether James and Michel might have been brothers? Michel's parents, Michel, Sr. and Catherine (Sigault), who settled in Illinois, are known to have had children from 1823 to 1846.

It's a possibility that James and Michel were brothers. My 2ggrandfather was John Baptiste Ladoux, Michel's younger brother, also a son of Michel I and Catherine Sigo Ledoux. Their chiildren were: Olive b. 8 Jan 1836, Jean Baptiste b. 4 Oct. 1838, Julien (James) b. abt 1841 in Henryville, Iverville,
Rosalie, b. 26 Feb. 1842, Philomene, b. 15 May, 1846, and Vitaline, b. 15 May 1846.

The family story is that Julien, who was also called James, married an Indian princess, and that she had two sons. When she died, he tried to leave the tribe and take his sons with him, but was killed because the Indians would let his sons leave the tribe. Today the family's story isn't felt to have substance in the more fanciful aspects, but the fact that he married an Indian girl, and that he was probably killed by Indians in some altercation is accepted as fact. However, his death was supposed to have happened in Canada, according to information from at least one source.

Michel Jr and John Baptiste and other family members did go to Minnesota at one point to homestead. John returned to St. Anne, but some of the others stayed in Minnesota. I don't know if that is when James met his wife, or if his being in Minnesota may have had something to do with others in his family going there? Or if James met his wife in Canada before the move south to Minnesota. Many questions about the mystery of Julien (James).

I am related to this branch of the family. Fr. Al LeDoux sent me the connection to your query. Contact me and I will try and get back to you. I am in the process of writing a book about the LeDoux family.

I had read your last post and wanted to let you know that I am also a LeDoux and doing some research. My grandfather (Lazim LeDoux b dec. 26 1899) was the son of John Baptiste LeDoux and Marie St. Onge. The family i believe was started in Canada and then into Minnesota Belle Prairie / Little Falls area / Tower city in the Dakota's in Cass country. If you would please let me know how far you are on the book. I would be interested in purchasing it.

Yes. Julien Ladoux also went by James. His wife Margaret (I have her last name as Trostachault) and he were married in Canada, went to Kankakee County, Illinois with the family, and later moved to Minnesota perhaps about the same time Michel senior and John Baptiste also went there to purchase cheap land. James and Margaret ended up living on a reservation. He lived a long life and after he died Margaret lived with a Civil War veteran. they were married just before he died so that she could apply for his pension, but I understand she was denied. There's a good deal of research that's been done by the Ladoux cousins email group since I posted that "family story" in 2009. The story about him marrying an Indian princess, etc., was all fabrication. If you like, I can connect you with the LaDoux cousins, all descendents of Michel Ladoux (Ledoux) senior.

I can send you a 2 page outline of your LeDoux ancestors. Your line is not included in the work that I have been writing.

The LeDoux family is too large to include in one book.

Send me your E-mail address and I will attach the 2 page outline of your family tree.

Ron send me your E-mail address at Joann503@verizon.net. Then I can send you the file that I've made for you to research. I think that it will help you trace your family tree.
