Well this could take awhile....Before my grandfather passed away he left my father a list that he had. My father is Maurice Dicaire, my Grandfather was Romuald A. Dicaire, born May 14, 1915 in Bourget, Ontario. His father was Joseph Dicaire from Bourget, Ontario, his father was Anthime Dicaire,lived in Saint Benoit, Quebec, his father was Joseph Dicaire from Quebec, his father was Benonie Dicaire from Quebec, his father was Pierre Dicaire from Quebec, then his father Pierre (Sr.)Dicaire, his father was Louis Dicaire from Quebec and his father was Jean Dicaire (John Dicker) from London, England. The first ancestor to Canada was Louis Dicaire and that of the families of the Dicaire (Dicker)who were of English nationality. What i would like to know more about was the incident of John Dicker, Sarah Teckel(his wife) and their son Jean-Louis and the capture of this family by Indians. I've been told the mother and father were killed but the son Jean-Louis was ransomed to a man by the name of Thomas Joncaire, so they put the name Dicker and Joncaire together and came up with the Surname Dicaire. I tried to email you at videotron address and it was returned undeliverable. Any information on any of these men, wives, families,siblings would be appreciated. I have the names of most of the wives, and for some reason the dates they were married, but do not have the birthdates or dates of death of any of the men or women. Hope to hear from you soon.

Am back again...Looking at your message a little closer I realize that your g. grandfather Anthime/m.Hérménie Leblanc and my grandfather Benoni/M.Amanda Angrignon were brothers,sons of Joseph /m.Thérèse Sarrazin.If this is correct I am a first cousin of your father. I will be 77 in July (b 1923) I live in Laval.Where do you live? My relatives on dad's side were also from St Benoit.My grandfather J"B"Corbeil (Town of Corbeil in Northern Ontario named after him) invited Benoni Dicaire (my grandfather) to come to establish himself on a farm at Corbeil because his brother, Ferdina Corbeil, was married to Bella Angrignon. She and Benoni's wife were sisters !!!Quite a story !! JPC

Hello Jean Paul, it is not my father who you are first (or is it second) cousin, it is my grandfather Romuald Dicaire (he died about 10 years ago). He was born in Bourget Ont. in 1915. He has an older brother named Claude who is still living and lives in the town of Corbeil along with other members of his family. If you go back to our common ancetor Pierre Dicaire Sr. you will find a line of native blood in our past. It seems that his wife (Cecile Visse) was metis because her father's name was Julien Visse and her mothers was Marie-Angelique Iroquois. I am 40 years old and live in Hanmer which is a small town just outside of Sudbury Ont. I came upon the following info on a genealogy site but I'm having trouble translating it, could you help me out and add anything else you know about this event which occurred to the family of Jean-Louis Dicaire? "Pris en guerre par les amerindien a l'automne 1705 et rachete par Louis-Thomas de Joncaire, fermier du sieur Guay au Sault-au-Recollets." Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Greg...Thanks for your message.Yes I know whereHamner is.Before the war I worked at Stobie open pit (inco) at Sudbury during summer holidays,My brother Vic was Pit Boss at Stobie and I was in college before joining the RCAF and going overseas as a member of a bombing crew(Halifax Bomber)I am originally from Bonfield,east of North Bay, where I visit every summer.Like yourself I have the same info concerning JeanLouis that you have. I plan on going the the National Library in Montreal and will try to locate more info on this adventure with the indians.and naturally I will let you know what I find.In the meantime I would appreciate knowing how you completed all the information you have which seems to be your complete family tree.If I'm not asking too much I would appreciate spouses' names, dates of marriage of the ancestors whose names you gave me on your first message, if you have them, naturally.You have my E-mail address ancor@videotron.ca (not .com...my mistake!!)Regards JPC

Hello Greg...You are quite right about the native blood in one line of the Dicaire family. Here is the information that I have received from the National Library at Montreal:"On May 29th 1815, Francois Dicaire,son ofJoseph Dicaire Catherine-
kassinotr, married Angelique Nakijikilosse,daughter of Laurent- kisenaol Cécile kakikalosse at Oka Quebec".I would assume that this is the info that you gave me except that the family name are changed which is a very normal occurence.Do you agree with this information.I will be going to the same library to search for info concerning the capture of Jean-Louis by the Amerindien and ransomed by Thomas Joncaire.Have a nice day JPC
