Curious to know what are the sources for the information in the query. family tree gives Beatrice's birth name as LaFromboise. No source.

Along with Beatrice's birth name, her birth date is also key to solving this puzzle. Apparently she was born about 1889-1891. Beatrice and Bart seem to have married before 1910. Her marriage record might - maybe - tell her birth parent's names. Various records for their children might tell her maiden name.

1910 US census
Menominee Indian Reservation, Shawano, Wisconsin
Bartholomew Chevalier 36 born about 1874 Wisconsin, race: Native American
Beatrice Chevalier 21 born about 1889 New York, race: White, parents both born USA
Ester Chevalier 2
Gorden V Chevalier 2 months old

Menominee Indian Reservation, Shawano, Wisconsin
Bert Chevalier 48 b Wisconsin, Indian, parents b Wisconsin
Beatrice Chevalier 29 born about 1891 New York, parents b New York
Esther Chevalier 11
Gordon Chevalier 8 years 8 months
Ruth Chevalier 7 years 2 months
Marie Chevalier 5 years 7 months
Joyce Chevalier 3 years 0 months
Emerine Antoinette Chevalier 7 months old

1930 census - notation for Beatrice says her parents were both born in New York.

The following link should lead to some specialized resources for tracing children of the Orphan Trains.
