St. Clement’s / Mapleton

Residents of St. Clement’s Parish in 1870, who were represented

~~~

st clements St. Clement’s Church, shown with the bell tower built in 1928 — the church in 1870 would have appeared relatively plain and unassuming.

The first residents of the portion of Red River Settlement that would eventually become known as St. Clement’s were members of the Peguis Band [see St. Peter’s Parish/ ‘the Indian Settlement’/ Peguis’ Settlement]. Métis families began to join them in settling along the banks of the Red River in the 1820s. Many were families of former Non-Aboriginal employees of the Hudson’s Bay Company [HBC], who were ‘retired’ after the merger of the HBC and the North West Company [NWC] in 1821. The neighbourhood of permanent settlement that extended to the south beyond the properties of residents of Peguis’ settlement became known as Mapleton.

There was a school at Mapleton by 1854 at which religious services were conducted. Planning for an actual church building was well underway by 1857, but it was not until 1861 that St. Clement’s Anglican church was completed. The church was located on the west bank of the Red River, across from the home of Thomas Bunn and Rachel Harriott on the east bank (newly built in 1862 and still standing in 2013), near the ferry that connected both halves of Mapleton.

According to the Archibald Census of 1870 residents of St. Clement’s Parish were virtually all Protestant (517). The few Roman Catholic residents are designated ‘RC’ below (the census listed 9 Catholics). If there is no designation, the resident was probably Protestant — though there were 3 people whose religion was listed as “not given” on the census.

[829] Joseph Parisien (First Nations/ Métis, born 1835/ 1841 to Jean Baptiste Parisien Jr. and Marguerite Dutemp/ Destemps; RC) married Catherine Spence (First Nations/ Métis, born 1839/ 1840 to John Spence and an unidentified Métis woman; died 1874; RC) and afterwards remarried.

– [831-833] Marguerite 7, Catherine 4, John George 2.

[#3834]

– [834] Marguerite A. 8 (Métis, daughter of Alexander Stewart and an unidentified woman)

Joseph Parisien was related to Norbert Parisien (Métis, perhaps born 1844 to Bonaventure/ Laveture Parisien dit Leger and Marguerite, a Saulteux woman, originally of Red Lake), who died after an aggravated assault committed 16 February 1870 by members of John C. Schultz’s Canadian Party Militia. [See The Three Deaths of the Resistance, this site.]

Joseph Parisien took treaty with the St. Peter’s Band (Treaty 1, 1871). He withdrew from treaty in 1874 when scrip became available, understanding (from John C. Schultz) that he would be accepted for a “HalfBreed grant” in 1875. Catherine, however, apparently continued to remain a Band member (though she had died), and the children received annuities in 1876 and 1877. James Graham, Acting Indian Superintendent, objected to the children receiving the annuity “their father being a White man,” writing to Ottawa for direction. Ottawa agreed that if Joseph Parisien qualified for scrip, he was now “a Whiteman” whose children “were not entitled to share in Indian annuities.” Joseph asked to be reinstated with the St. Peter’s Band, explaining he would never have changed his status if he had know his children would lose theirs. In addition, as of 1878, Joseph had never received his scrip (and in fact had been disallowed from qualifying for scrip because he had taken treaty annuities and not paid them back and was therefore an “Indian”). And, since Joseph was apparently still an “Indian,” he wanted the annuities that he had gone without since 1874, as well as money owed to his children for 1875 and 1878 ($65 in total). Government officials wanted to know if Joseph was “a White-man, a HalfBreed, or an Indian.” They were told he was “a French Half Breed” who was “considered an Indian” for the purpose of taking treaty in 1871. Joseph was reinstated.

The family encountered additional problems in 1886, over the question of whether Catherine had in fact died, “out of treaty” as a ‘Halfbreed’ (in which case her heirs — including Joseph — could qualify for scrip), or not (one official alleged she was a “full blooded Indian” so would never have been considered for scrip; another thought that her having received $3 in 1874 meant she was an ‘Indian’ for the whole year, dead or not, since she never paid it back; another stated she was an ‘Indian’ “in the eyes of the law”). Apparently, by this time (1886) Joseph had again withdrawn from treaty to take scrip.

Joseph Columbia Johnston was a “HalfBreed” farmer whose family took treaty with the St. Peter’s Band (Treaty Number 1) in 1871. But, in December 1881 he applied to withdraw, at the cost of $50 (returning the annuities he had received to that time). James Graham, the Superintendent of Indian Affairs at Winnipeg, objected to Joseph taking Métis scrip, if his wife and children continued to be ‘Indians’ and draw annuities. Joseph clarified that his wife and the one daughter who lived with him would also withdraw from treaty to claim Métis scrip. Mary and Jane gave affidavits to that effect. The family was asked to pay back $195. Deputy Superintendent General of Indian Affairs, S. Vankoughnet then weighed in, declaring that he would review the Treaty. Joseph repaid all of the annuity monies received by his family (including by other individuals than himself, Mary, and Jane). Canada accepted the $195, and decided not to investigate the question of whether a family could simultaneously consist of ‘Halfbreeds’ and ‘Indians’ any further. After Joseph Johnston died (some time before 1886), Mary and Jane finally received scrip, in the amount of $26.66 each (as did a number of his other children: Eliza Johnson-Holgate, Annie ‘Nancy’ Johnson-Hall, and Sarah).

    Hi! I’m trying to find more information on David Stranger. I think he was married to my 3x great grandmother isabol/ isabel (daughter of chief Athathkoop / starblanket)

    If you have any additional information that would be very helpful!

    Janine

    • Good to meet you Janine, and thanks for the tip about Isobel: if I find anything more I will definitely let you know.
      Norma

  2. Thank you! I’m trying to research my family tree and I know that a Rev David Stranger was once married to Isobel/Isabel in Sandy Lake (Saskachewan). David worked with Rev John Hines from England. For the life of me I can’t find any info about their kids? I’m trying to locate a birth certificate or baptism for her son Hecter or Hector.
    Thank you in advance.
    Janine

  3. Hi! Doing family genealogy research.
    Looking for any information for William Adhemar( b. about 1844). I believe he is the son of Patrick Adhemar and Nancy Rose (or mother could be Elizabeth (Eliza?) Fiddler (Fidler?)I am finding conflicting information. Also there are many spellings for Adhemar.
    Current ancestry finds spell it Adhemar or Ahdemar. Old findings spell it Ademar.

    He would be my 3rd Great grandfather.
    Thanks,
    Cheryl
