I am researching my Ggrandmother Mary Louise CLAIRMONT b: 1873 in Washington State or Montana. Her father was Louis Clairmont Sr. b: 1837 (some say in France) She was supposedly educated in Quebec. Her mother is Rosalie Boiver. They all settled in Ronan or St. Ignatius Montana. Louis died 1904 in Ronan, MT. Rosalie died in 1908 in St. Ignatius, MT and Mary Louise died in Tacoma Washington State in 1959/60. Any info would be really appreciated. you can e-mail me direct cdavies182@aol.com

I am researching my wifes Family. Her 2nd Great Grandmother was Caroline Boiver. She married Baptiste Pokerjim. I don't have any information on either one other than the entire Family comes from the Ronan MT area. Caroline is probably about the right age to be a sister of your Rosalie. Have you had any further luck with your reaearch since this message board was posted? If any of these names ring any bells I have some decendancy information, if you wish. Thank you Dave Ernst Rocknrol3@aol.com

Cheryl,
I believe I just sent a letter to you today. I have a huge amount of information on Alexander Morigeau and Rosalie Finley. And I have a lot of information on the Clairmont family as well, as the Clairmont are a branch that touches into my Shoshone lineage in Wyoming. Sincerely...Gene

Hi there, I just stumbled on this message board and I am so interested in more information regarding Rosalie Finley Morigeau. She is listed on my great grandmother's marriage certificate as her mother, but I am not sure that is true. I suspect that she was actually her grandmother, but raised her as her daughter. My great grandmother's name is Mary Elizabeth Morgeau and after she married she took the name Marie Simmons. I attended the Morigeau family reunion in Montana last year and saw some amazing photos of Rosalie. I was given a beautiful beaded bag that was given to my great grandmother for her wedding. I saw an amazing shot of Rosalie with gorgeous beaded bags and dress and I believe Rosalie was the maker of my bag. Any information you could provide me would be amazing! I would pay for any copies of pictures, documents or postage if you would be willing to share.

Thank you so much,

Hi Lisa,
I was at the Morigeau Reunion last July 2006. I had a seven volume history of all the descendants of Francois dit Morigeau Forgues for the reunion. I had a shorter version, which was only the descendants of Alexander and Rosalie Finley Morigeau. The larger version was about 1,229 pages in length. And I was able to sell about seven sets. Some of those at the reunion had asked me why their names were not included. Its because I could find no stories or articles or relatives who would provide the information. For instance, a large portion of the SLOAN family was not there; but I have received about 30 pages of new information to include with the history. And I've been merging new information into the history, so its much bigger. And those who provided new information want to obtain an updated version. So I am working hard to get that done now. I believe there was over 5,000 descendants. I was given corrections about Mary Elizabeth Morigeau from the reunion. That helped. And if you are connectted to Jacques Raphael "Jocko" Finley; then that history is huge, some 4,000 pages which my cousin, David Charles "Chalky" Courchane has done, and which I have assisted with some of the information. Sincerely, Gene, Native American Family Historian and Genealogist of the Confederated Salish, Kootenai, Spokane, and Pend d'Oreille Tribe of the Flathead Nation.

Oh my gosh, we must have met and I do remember your books. How much are you selling them for? I sure would be interested in all of the great information. Do you books include any photos? Thank you so much for your response!

Lisa,
Last summer, the 1,229 pages sold for $150.00, and I am adding new information as I am recorrecting some information for clarity in the history. The histories do not have pictures, BUT I have made notations in the source narrative if a photo accompanied an obituary or biography in a book, etc. But I need to find out how many pages have been added since last July, as their have been some good information about the Morigeau family of Canada on the internet. And since Ancestry.com has been accessible at the Polson Family Library of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or can be access at any other library, I have been able to find missing information.
If I am correct, part of the Clairmont family was part of my Washakie family history. So if you are connected to the Clairmonts, there is some information of them, that may not be part of my Morigeau history. Both Wade Thomson, who also has the Morigeau history extended back to France, and I were both presenter of Family History at the reunion. I wore a huge Tribal Reservation hat, which is beaded around the rim, and the hat was black. Our tables were next to where the food was served.Gene

I read your message and my GGGgrandparents were Alexander Morigeau and Rosalie Finley.
My GGgrandparents were Eli Morigeau and Nancy Cameron.
I'm disapointed that I missed the reunion, as I just started researching last summer. I'm wondering if these are also your GGgrandparents ?

Dear Clairmont,
I just read your letter and thought I'd respond. I didn't know about the reunion you spoke about 2007. I had heard anout some reunion in the states, but it was going to be the last one, and I couldn't make it. I do hope your health is with you. I am a descendant of Francois who was the father of Baptiste, who was the father of David, who was the fater of Joseph, who was the father of Angeline who was my mother. I have tried to keep record of the children from these precious families, but it keeps one pretty busy and then I get a lot of "It's none of your business!" Poor relations, they don't realize they are my business because they are my family! Are you aware of the Morigeau Reunion being held up in Invermere July 30th and August 1st? Hope to meet you there! How much does your shorter version cost?
