Notes for L
OUIS BASTIEN:
!Lori Lehman April 1998 Says he is her GGGrandfather. These two families have been a bit more difficult to find. The only information I have is the 3 marriages of Adele. I am not sure if she immigrated to Wisconsin with Louis or did she die in Quebec? I have yet to even find out where they were from in the Trois-Riveres area? I am planning to go to the Archives in Maskinonge next spring.

Well I just thought I'd let you know you gave me a head start in my search for the Gravel/Gravelle family!

Thanks

Notes for
"DELIMA" MARIE-ROSE DELIMA COTIN, DIT DUGAL:
!CENSUS: Delima ( her age is listed as 63) is enumerated with her daughter Albena and son-in-law Remo Moratt at the Village of Little Falls, (page number 15 Sup. Dist. Number 3 Enum District #78) 24th June 1880 Morrison Co., MN census

!NOTES: 1997 Col. Adrian Gravelle of Ellicott City, Maryland writes Your birth location for Rose Delima Dugal is at Newport, Quebec. I suggest you double-check your source. Newport is in Gaspesie (Gaspe Peninsula), very far from the normal towns where her parents, husband, etc. lived. It is possible that the family went out there for a while, but not probable. By the way, "Rose de Lima", after Saint Rose of Lima, was a popular 19th century Quebec name. I've seen it spelled several ways in the records, with the shortened version of Rose-Delima being the most prevalant. Could it be that the family thought Portneuf translated to Newport?

!2001 Adrian Gravelle of Ellicott City, Maryland Writes: There is one date that needs correcting. Marie
Gravel was born and baptized on 28 March 1817. By coincidence, I have the
LDS microfilm of the parish records for Ste. Famille in Cap Sante and looked
at the baptismal record this morning. Parish records of Ste. Famille
Catholic Church, Cap Sante, Portneuf County, Quebec; volume 5, page 2,
baptismal record #32 in 1817; available on LDS FHL microfilm #1289953 (gives
name as "Marie;" gives parents' names; says birth was the day of the
baptism). I agree that this is probably Rose-Delima. The date of 28 March
is good news as it makes it more probable that Marie is Rose-Delima, being
exactly a year (and one day) different than the date Phyllis has.

!2001 From:      suzanne.ducas@sympatico.ca (Suzanne Ducas)

Adrian & Phyllis,

I think I found the baptism of Rose-de-Lima Dugal (spouse of Maxime
Gravel).
At Cap-Santé, comté de Portneuf here is what I found on this family:
12 Aug 1812 born and baptism of Marie-Edesse Dugal
30 Apr 1814 born and baptism of Prudent Dugal
29 Sep 1815 born and baptism of Marie-Josette Dugal
18 Mar 1817 born and baptism of Marie Dugal
They are both children of Louis Dugal and Elisabeth Damien.

I think our Rose-de-Lima is Marie who was born in 1817.

There is no birth of Dugal between 1818 and 1825 in Cap-Santé and Louis
& Elisabeth Damien were married in 1799.

Narcisse Gravel, a native of Lower Canada, was born on the 1 st of November, 1838. When young, he learned the carpenter's trade of his father, at which he worked until coming to Minnesota, in 1858. After his arrival in ths State, he made his home at Crow Wing, Minnesota, but was employed at his trade by the Government, at Red Lake, White Earth, and other places in the northern part of the States. In 1870, he located in what is now known as Brainerd, building one of the first houses in that section. Six years later, he came to Belle Prairie and assisted his brother Charles, in the erection of the mills at Gravelville, and finally located on his present farm which he had previously taken as a homestead. Mr. Gravel was married to Miss Exida (Exilda Chouinard) Crouinard on the 30th of January 1862.

!The removal of the Ojibway Indians from Crow Wing, Gull River, and Gull Lake and North Long Lake to White Earth Reservation in 1868, was disheartening. The fur trade was now over but the citizens of Crow Wing hoped that the newly chartered Northern Pacific Railroad would be built to their town and provide more employment and growth. Unfortunately for them, the Northern Pacific decided to run its line where a new town called Brainerd was built in 1870-71. Brainerd became the county seat in 1872 and many of the businesses at Crow Wing moved there. Residents too began moving elsewhere during 1873-74. Some went to Brainerd, many of the French Canadians to Little Falls, while most of the mixed bloods joined their relatives at White Earth. By 1879-80, old Crow Wing was almost a deserted ghost town.

Phyllis,

      I happened to come across your great-grandfather Gravel's marriage
information in a parish repertoire at the Library of Congress this
morning. I think you had an obit for Philomene Leblanc which says she
and James Arthur Gravel were married in 1866 in "Sharvington," Canada.
Like so many obits, the data is essentially correct, but the spelling is
badly botched. The couple was married 23 January 1866 at St. Boniface
Catholic Church in Shawnigan, St. Maurice County, Quebec. (Shawnigan is
a few miles northwest of Trois Rivieres on the St. Maurice River.) The
groom is listed as Jacques Gravel, son of Maxime and Rose-de-Lima Dugal
of Yamachiche. (Jacques must have anglified his name to "James" when he
came to the U.S. Also, it is not unusual that the second part of his
given name, Arthur, doesn't show up in the marriage record.) The bride
is Philomene Leblanc, daughter of deceased Pierre Leblanc and Josephte

!INFORMATION: Back in 1881, a historian of Morrison county wrote: "in 1876 Charles Gravel made a claim on the Platte river. There is a good mill site at this point, and Mr. Gravel and his brother Narcisse at once commenced the erection of a flour and saw mill. The mills were completed, and soon after, D. O. Goulet became a partner. In 1878, F. X. Goulet purchased his brother's interest, and the following year, a general store was opened. This company has done a very successful business at this place, and are now making valuable improvements."

Mary Louise Gravel is the daughter of Dr. Edmund E. Braun and Sophie H. Braun.

She was born in Charlestown, Mass., on 24 July 1853.

With her parents and four sisters she came West to St. Paul at the age of five
years. They resided there about three years when her father was appointed post surgeon at Fort Abercrombie in Dakota territory in 1862. Her father was
stationed there until the fall of 1865. The family then came to Fort Ripley,
Morrison County. The journey was madeoverland in an Army ambulance. The trip took about ten days and proved very enjoyable to the five young girls.

They camped at night during ideal weather in September.

Fort Ripley then was under the command of Major Bush. The army regime was very interesting. A sentinel was always stationed in each bastion at the corners of the walls of the fort. Each morning there was a guard mount where the sentinels were changed for the day. The soldiers awoke with the bugle call and retired when taps were sounded. The army drill on the parade grounds was a colorful sight.
