genealogical References To The End Of “New France” By Kevin Lajiness

genealogical References
   To The End Of “New France” By Kevin Lajiness

FROM THE Treaty of Greenville with Ancestors of Kevin Lajiness

THE EXPEDITIONS OF Gen. Arthur St. Clair — AND — Gen. Anthony Wayne


Pg. 12

The English claimed this territory by virtue of their
early settlement of the Atlantic coast at a corresponding
latitude; on their construction of the treaties of Ryswick,
Utrecht, and Aix-La-Chapelle; and on the alleged cessions
by the Indians. The French, on the other hand, claimed the
same territory on account of the explorations of Marquette
and La Salle, their occupation, and their opposite con-
truction of the same treaties.

The Governor
of Canada sent Bienville to take formal possession of the Ohio valley,
to conciliate the Indians, and to thwart the English. He went down the
Ohio planting lead plates at the mouths of some of the
principal tributaries. Returning by way of the Great
Miami and Maumee he stopped at Pickawiliany, about four
miles above the present site of Piqua, where several hundred
Miami Indians and head chief lived.(this was a old Native resort of sorts)

the mouth of the Scioto and were gaining the favor of the

The time had come to fortify the forks of the Ohio, bat
this important step was delayed on account of the dis-
putes of the governors of Pennsylvania and Virginia as to

In 1753, while these disputes were still unsettled, Du
Quesne, the Governor of Canada, sent a force to seize and
hold the northern branches of the Ohio. Crossing over
from Presque Isle, on Lake Erie, they cut a road to French
Creek, a branch of the Alleghany, and built Ft. Le Boeuf.(Family name)
They also garrisoned a place at the old Indian town of
Venango further down.

This was the signal for decisive action and Governor
Dinwiddie, of Virginia, who claimed jurisdiction in this
territory, sent George Washington on his famous expedi-
tion to the commander, St. Pierre, to remonstrate against
the French occupation of the Ohio valley. Washington was
courteously received, but informed that the movement
had been made by instructions from the Governor General
of Canada, and that the message would be referred to him,
but the posts held in the meantime. In the following
spring the English attempted to build a fort on the present
site of Pittsburgh, but were driven off, and the place taken
by the French, who built Fort DuQuesne. Thus began the
French and Indian War.

The Indians, who had a natural love for war,(Not my words obviously part of
The old text, the politics of I am not purveyor of here KL) and
whose interests were at stake, soon allied themselves ac-
cording to their inclinations. Those of the Northwest,
with few exceptions, joined their fortunes with the
French. The war now assumed larger proportions, and England

 sent Braddock over with a large army of regulars. The
slaughter of the latter while moving toward Fort DuQuesne^
encouraged many more Indians to join the cause of the
French, and even some of the Iroquois wavered as they
saw the English defeated time after time, but when the
scales turned they resumed their old alliance.

During the course of the war the Miamis, Wyandots,
Ottawas and other northern tribes which had adhered to
the French, fortified Pickawillany(Piqua) where they were at-
tacked by the Delawares, Shawanese and other tribes ad-
hering to the English. After several days' siege the latter
abandoned the attempt but the Miamis soon left this val-
ley, where they claimed to have originated, and settled
about the Maumee. They were followed by the Shawanese
who occupied this site until driven further north by the
whites.(of note my ancestor Pierre Roy who
Married Miami's Bride Margaret Ouabankikoue.was at Detroit
Before this time, the Detroit area before Cadillac invited
these same tribes to Detroit, the Area was Iroquois hunting grown
Before white contact, Iroquois historic enemy to the Algonquin
before and during European contact)

During the first years of the conflict the French and
their allies won victory after victory, but in 1758 the
English gained the ascendancy, taking Louisbourg and Fort
DuQuesne. In the following year Wolf stormed the Heights
of Abraham, and took the citadel of Quebec, the backbone
of Canada. This was the climax of the struggle on the
continent that won for the Anglo-Saxon the supremacy
in the New World, and deprived France of her American
possessions. John Fiske wrote of it: "The triumph of
Wolf marks the greatest turning point as yet discoverable-
in modern history,*' (American Political Ideas, p. 56.)

Consume himself and the end of Piqua-Kevin Lajiness)

Working with DNA Triangulation

There are 23 chromosomes. this chart shows you the segments on Chrom. 5 that match David to Alissa, David Foxworth, you and me as you can see Allisa shares the whole segment with her father, you share more than 50% with you brother and Alissa, I share 28,876 cM's with Alisa  and your brother, and Dennis Foxworth shares 16.64 with me, Allisa and David but you do not share that part of the chromosome . with me or Dennis. For Triangulation to work at least three distant cousins (more than third cousins) have to share at least 7 cM's. So there are two situations that work, Me Dennis and David, or Me Dennis and Alisa. in both situations we share a total of 16.64 cM's but Allisa does not have a profile at WikiTree so we cant use her so we take the example formula on the page at WinkiTree that explains Autosomal DNA Matches and we go to using Triangulation to confirm"Triangulation" we plug these numbers from this chart that we got at GEDmatch.com with the matches we got there. we take that formula shown here for ME DAVID AND DENNIS FOXWORTH- listed here
  • "Paternal relationship is confirmed To Raoul-31 by a triangulated group consisting of Dennis W. Foxworth GEDmatch A977934, Kevin Charles Lajiness GEDmatch M658673 and David H. RathbunGEDmatch M477872 sharing a >20cM segment on Chromosome 5 from 133931713 - 149442105, Overlap with the previous match"
Raoul-31 is the point person (Think that is John Baptist Raoul), that means he is the ancestor that we all have in common.(Chart Below)
We take this formula and we plug it in the child of the person we are confirming the DNA too. throughout the chain in the source section of the profile  for example if the point person was our 5 great grandmother and it was your mother's mother's father's mother's  father's mother's mother you would start with her daughter you would change paternal relationship to maternal relationship is confirmed and since the trail goes threw he son and then his daughter you would change pack to paternal relationship is confirmed in the formula language and so on and so forth not only for your trail but all tree trails of you and your othertwo GEDMatch.com people, ok thats a mouthful for what is realy easy.

Now if you go to the edit tab on the profile to mark the DNA as confirmed, two things the genealogy has to be marked as confident, I will add at least three sources then I will mark it confirmed with DNA, if you cant then more genealogy needs to be confirmed.
Now going back to the chart you and your brother and your niece share well over 7 cM's og segment on this and many other chromosomes  from what I've seen so since you are less than the third cousin away you can confirm your Autosomal DNA simply using a different formula

Now If you please Ron I've taken a lot of time to exsplain this to you , so if you want you can plug in the formula for David's mother Betty and her mother Viola since I cannot, again for David edit in the source plug in the Triangulation formula above and mark Betty as confirmed with DNA the go-to Bettys edit plug in the triangulation formula in the source section of poth make sure you chang Paternal to Maternal then if you want you can fill in the above autosomal formula with your niece and one for your brother, you niece she is confirming to her father so it is paternal and then one for you and you brother in his and your profile as confirmed Maternally and then if you want but it is redundat you can purt one in your neice and one in your brothers to confirm your neice as a DNA confirmed Match to you, good enough, oh your neice doesnt have a profile by the way the profiles should be atleast private with public tree, again happy hunting

Of Metis Pride

 Being of Metis Decent I know of Atrocities on Both Sides but my people lost there culture not there lives 3000 natives lived at one time with 300 mostly French fur trading dynastic families some of the Algonquin survived not in spite of these families for the genocide the Iroquois would have suffered against the Algonquin surly would have continued without the intervention of the Champlain descending missionary (Jesuit set up first)  families that were to travel to the great lakes region, whites, Tribes, and the Metis all took slaves some of the tribes became Chiefs or Sachems Like Godfrey. some Halfbloods even women became great interpreters like Madame Monture some were really country wifes that traveled and had children by the traders witch side do I choose the one that looks more like me the one that has more "White blood", I am proud of my Interpreter families but they are not perfect I am proud that they were friends and live and married with Pontiacs people, did they sell out or did they sign treaties to save them from getting further slaughtered. Did they play both sides of the coin, It appeared they did, but when captured by Clarks soldiers SansCrainte dressed and slits in his ears like all the other Indians one by one to be tomahawked at the fort gate with Pontiacs son was saved Sancrainte by his father who was Interpreter for Clark, was it because the sons Mother was raised by an indian or was it because the son lived amongst them and when the father or son was paid to assist in the removal of some to the west did they do it as family and friend or to some other end. and when they returned they gave up their land to live across the river with people like Simon Girty the only white man around when the five nations convenient on the Maumee side was that because he lived and fought with them and took an Indian bride or was it because with dark hair and black eyes he was the most hated man alive, was he white or Indian in disguise you tell me his face is carved on girty Mountain on at the time was Indian land of pennsilvania Pride witch side do I choose while I'm sill alive. Strong Men will survive.

The Great DNA Match On My WikiTree 10th great grandaughter of Hrolf Ragnvaldsson (Rollo) "le Marcheur, the Walker, The Dane, Duke of Normandy" Viking

* Paternal relationship is confirmed to[[[Dutton-22|Margaret Venables formerly Dutton aka Fitton]] [Born about 1237 in Cheshire, England map [this is subject to change because of recent discoveries]]]. A group consisting of [[Lajiness-24|Kevin Lajiness]] GEDmatch M658673, [[W-451|Kristine W]] GEDmatch T004200 and [[Todd-1194|Rev. Thomas Toddy]] further GEDmatch T891976 Matching segments on Chromosome 9 from 19871264-38244018 (Abt. 20Cm's). Of Note: Both Parents of Lajiness-25 have common ancestor Dutton-22|Margaret Venables formerly Dutton aka Fitton with W-451 and Todd-1194
I Will be making a further post about comparing DNA and confirming Ancestry but for this post, I am just showing the comparisons. The whole process is called triangulation because you are finding you and two other distant cousins that share the same segment of DNA on the same clomazone. obviously you have to know the genealogy of the cousin to confirm the trail and the trail is only as strong as the genealogy because sometimes there can be different trails to the same person and any mistakes in the trail can give you false results, the other thing is you confirming only the shortest trail, this example I am using I am using to show how your parents can have different trials to the same point person so without knowing your parents DNA you can only say that you are confirmed not them. the other reason I am showing this is because it is such a long tril but I have strong indications that the trail cross much earlier, you see population migrations in the past were like brades of hair as time goes by the smaller bands of hair braid in and out with the larger population as people moved in groups from place to place, so This is what I have the there are four charts here that go back 20 + generations where me and my DNA cousins match to a common ancester who here is Margaret Venables formerly Dutton aka Fitton Born about 1237 in Cheshire, England Map

Rollo is the 10th great-grandfather of Margaret

Hrolf Ragnvaldsson (Rollo) "le Marcheur, the Walker, The Dane, Duke of Normandy" of Normandy formerly Normandie
Born about  in Maer, Jutland, Nord-Trondelag, Norwaymap
"Rollo is the great-great-great-grandfather of William the Conqueror.
The "Clameur de Haro" in the Channel Islands is, supposedly, an appeal to Rollo.

Duc de Normandie - 'Gonge Rolf' (The Ganger), a Norwegian Viking settled at the mouth of Seine. He was the founder of the House of Normandy and England, 1st Duke of Normandy, 912. Charles made him Robert I Duke of Normandy to prevent him from attacking nearer to Paris, so in 912 he became the first Duc de Normandie and vassal of King.

From: The Pedigree and History of the Washington Family, by Albert Welles
1st Duke, leader Norman Pirates Rollo devastated Holland and appeared upon the Seine while Gottfried ravaged the valleys of to Meuse and Saheldt. They burned and sacked Cologne, Bonn, Treves, Metz and other cities, stabling their horses at Aix-La-Chapelle, in the Cathedral Church of Charlemagne."https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Normandie-54
Hey, how fun is that that and a dime might get you a cup of coffie, sorry not going to inherit a kingdom beside France and England went to war and he was the monkey in the middle. but still, it's kool also he was a good-looking Knight, the kind that went on crusades like me, sept I fighting windmills in my mind. wow off the rails, Anyway getting back
   The page at the top is a screenshot of Margaret's profile on WiKiTree and the second chart under is the list of people that are matching me on chromosome  9. My mother is private. Rev Thomas Todd Died 30 Sep 1938, my mom an dads genealogy crossed actually where the gedmatch.com  for me and my sweet cousins.so there you have it more on this later. ps, the chart below depicts four people one does not match but is in the same chrome. and only two of the rest are compared to me, further, additions strengthen the trail but I don't have there genealogy Yeti say for I am a master of disguises and I will find the glue to the clue

"I'm going to rewrite this soon to include some life events" Here's the dealeo, I started doing Wood Sculptures about 15 years ago to try and keep myself busy after I stopped drinking and smoking. About 5 years into it I got throat and neck Cancer. I say this because before I had the Cancer I had not written or sung Music. Looking to clean up an open space in late 2007 and 2008 ( http://openspacedocumentary.blogspot.com/) i became closer to some of the local wild life, I bonded with a Hawk and a Baby duck and started to write songs, I forced myself to sing when I could, I have over three hundred songs now, some good, some not so good, but I am getting better at writing, singing, mixing and arranging.    

New:"Charleena"2013 "The River" 2013 and "Cried and Cried My life Story"2012 others "Reflections Destiny"2012 "Kevin'ns Epic Music"2012 "Fire Storm Of Emotion" 2012"Angel Secrets"2012 All 18 Available at my Store http://www.reverbnation.com/Kevin Lajiness

  I write from a position of emotion and honesty, usually tell a story about love, life, relationships, nature, adventure, history, spirituality,philosophy etc. My Art and Music style is Naive, I beat mix looped instruments as accompaniments but the melodies don't necessarily match, but I put a great deal of thought into them and try and bring something epic to bear in mind, yet some of my songs are ballads and relaxing songs of love . 
   I have 5 song books/ songbooks online 4 of them avalable as google e-books my "The 2009" http://kevinlajiness2009song.blogspot.com/  and 2010 Song Book https://books.google.com/books?id=SWsPBAAAQBAJThe 2011 Song Book https://books.google.com/books?id=8xkOBAAAQBAJ  and

 These books represent a ton of work , good bad or indifferent. I apologize ahead of time for typo's English and spelling, i suck at all of that, but it's about the music and lyrics and that's what really matter but I gave it my best.
 with some links to the songs , some I have taken down, (I am going to try and put them all back up for nostalgia and to show my progress from Throat and neck Cancer), but the lyrics are all there
  I have many slideshows/Videos of nature and Open Space pic's over the years that I put to my music on YouTube-kevinlajiness  and saved in Google + or Picasa.

  I grew up on Lake Erie Lagoons, my grandfather had a bate shop. Fishing and hunting was big on my fathers side no doubted stemmed from the fact that his ancestors were “Woods Runners” or “coureurs des bois”. As long as I can remember I’ve had a love for trees, nature and the environment, I attribute that, and the spiritual connection I have with mother earth, to the connection my ancestors had with the Indigenous peoples of the Americas. Most if not all of them are child friendly. I started writing my early songs while working on a open space for a year, where I bonded with a hawk and a duck.

        Allot of what I draw from comes from life’s experience and what’s in my heart, what I believe is a responsibility to carry the messages of or ancestors on what is right, to come to a conclusion we are all part of something bigger than ourselves and that we pass that on to our children in story and song,but remember i am an artist I write story and rhyme, lesson and fable, I do not try to be politically correct.even though i don't use cuss words other that Hell and dam, I don't have a problem with artist that do,to each there own, I believe things evolve for a reason, hey it got someone out of the slums, by the way the baby duck that followed me home got to big and i gave her to a zoo keeper, she flew back to his house from the zoo and they raised her, she has since had her own baby's
