Notes for Charles "Tchee-Non"-POITRAS POITRA:

I am not sure this is who you mean, but as you did put the (s) from the name POITRAS in brackets it led me to believe you were talking about my family of Poitra(s) in Belcourt ND area as that is how the U.S Poitra (s)) spell their names, including my mother.

This what I found listed in the "Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation St. Ann's Centennial Book"

Alfred T. Poitra & Mary Mathilda PARISIEN

Alfred born Dec. 4, 1892 and died July 10th, 1944. His parents were Charles T. Poitra (died Nov. 2, 1922) and Marie T. (BRELAND) Poitra born March 19, 1853 & died January 7, 1937).

They were married at Thorne, N.D. in 1913.

Eleven children were born:

Sister MAry Francis Poitra

Oscar

Anthony (Billy))

Clifford Joseph (Brownie)

Rita

Like I said I don't know if these are the people you are looking for.

Minnie sounds like a nic name though.

Hope this is what you need.

Notes for Marie-Josephine RENVILLE:

Subject: Poitra / Renville Metis great-grandparent's lives

Date: Mon, 23 Aug 1999 10:14:09 -0700

From: phyllis nowosad <>

Hi all,

I thought I might share a bit of my great grandparents life as Metis. With so much being written about what the men did this story is dear to me because it is about my great-grandmother's life.

Her name was Marie Josephine Renville. She was the daughter of Joseph Renville son of Joseph Renville (DeRainville) who was a well know brois brule and interpreter who built Fort Snelling where Minneapolis and St. PAUL now stand. He also started the Columbus Fur Trade Company later sold it to John Jacob Astor.

===========

This was written for the Turtle Mountain Centennial Book in 1985.

Joseph Poitra ( 1854-1908) - Josephine Renville June 12 1864- July 21 1962)

Lincoln was president of the United States and Sitting Bull was beginning his rise to power the year Josephine was born in the Dakota Territory.

Joseph whose parents were Joseph Sr. Susan LAVERDURE was born in 1854 and died in 1908. He had three sisters, Madeleine Poitra Klyne, Susan Poitra Bottineau and MArie Poitra Ailin asn two brothers, AZachariah and Charles Poita. Josephine, whose parents were Joseph and Frezene (Belgarde ) Renville, was born June 12, 1864 and dies July 21 1962. Her brothers were Napoleon PAUL, Joseph Jr., John Baptiste and Octave ( Mike) and Isadore ( Edward) Renville.

She had one sister, Philomene Renville LAMBERT and a half sister, MAry JAne (Laquette) Premeau. The Renvilles were fur traders. Renville Counties in the North Dakota and Minnesota were named after two of Josephine's brothers. The county in North Dakota was named after Octave and in Minnesota after Joseph. Joseph was buried at St. Anthony Cemetery BELCOURT, North Dakota.

Josephine never saw or met the martyred President Lincoln, but she did see the great INDIAN Leader Sitting Bull on many occasions. (She was half Sioux INDIAN) Historians may differ concerning the figure of Sitting Bull .

Josephine had her own opinions and memories . She recalled the INDIAN Chieftain was very handsome , very erect and had a proud bearing. He had one fault, though, and a disposition with a mean side. In 1881, the last time t Josephine saw Sitting Bull, the last of the Dakota was at Fort Union, now known as Fort Buford. Josephine may not have been aware of it at the time but she was witnessing a closing chapter in a period of strife and battles between INDIAN Tribes and WHITE settlers. Most of the fur companies were of French extraction and Josephine's father , Joseph Renville was a fur trader and hauled freight so most likely this is why the Renville family happened to be at Fort Union in 1881.

As a young girl, Josephine would travel with her family each summer to the plains west of the present site of Stanley to hunt buffalo, pick berries and gather food for the winter months. When fall came the family would move to a location on the river near Fort Buford, near the present community of Trenton, ND. They lived in log huts each with tanned buffalo hides for doors and windows , while they slept on the floor or ground at night. In Josephine's long life she could never sleep n a soft bed. She would lie on the floor even in later years.

Pemmican, made from dried meat and chokecherries, was one of the prized items of the day. The Hudson Bay Company purchased the pemmican and shipped it to Europe where it was a highly prized food.

Joseph Poitra and Josephine Renville married in 1881; Josephine was 17 and Joseph 27. They had a total of 10 sons and one daughter.

The sons were Joseph, George ( my grandfather born in LeBrett Sask in 1885 ), who after he married moved to Boggy Creek Manitoba Canada to live: Moses, Charles, John, Louise, and Francis remained in the BELCOURT area. A son PAtrick, died at four months and the other children died as infants. The POITRAS cared for another young girl, Celina Belgarde. She too died at an early age. Most died of TB.

George and Francis were the only remaining children to live. It might be noted that Celina was the child of Josephine's cousin Joseph Belgarde and Seraphine Bottineau Belgarde who had died at an early age also. All family were members of the St. Anthony Catholic Curch in BELCOURT/

Josephine and Joseph's children were married to the following:

George married Adele Enno ( HENAULT, NAULT, Enaud);

Moses married Eveylyn Zaste:

John married Virginia MORIN and

Francis was married to Mathilda AZURE.

All the POITRAS married life they made a living by farming. When Joseph died they had many farm animals. Josephine continued to farm after Joseph's death in 1908.

In 1915 Josephine married Charles Champagne at Thorn. They never had children. They continued to live in the Turtle Mountains and Charles cared for Josephine until her death at 98 on July 21 , 1962.

In 1954 , Josephine and Charles had a two room house built just west of the AZURE store about 7 1/2 miles west of BELCOURT on Jack Rabbit Rd. The outside walls are still standing as of this reading July 25, 1984. Josephine did all the interior decorating herself.

On Josephine's birthdays many family members would gather to her house to celebrate. Upon arrival she would get busy and get some of her dried meat out and pound it before she served it along with the other food the other relatives brought with them. She would often have a treat for the grandchildren.

One thing that Josephine would never do was to speak English. She always spoke Michif. We would never find her wearing store bought shoes at home, she always wore moccasins. However she did own shoes and wore them t town and to Church and elsewhere. She also made many quilts which she gave to relatives and friends if she didn't need them. The stitching on the quilts was small and fine and done beautifully.

One of the most important assets of Josephine was that of being a midwife. She delivered close to 2000 babies. Charles Champagne recorded them all. She delivered most of her grandchildren. According to Charles she only lost one due to birth being breech. She also used many wild herbs to cure ailments. People would come from miles around to get INDIAN medicine from her. THe herbs she gathered were from the hills, prairies, and bush.

In her 98 years, Josephine has seen the Dakota Territory become North Dakota.

She has seen the the are change from hunting wilderness to a place of prosperous farms and growing cities. She has, in her own way taken an internal part in the transition. Work was the basic part of her life. Up to her 89th year she kept 13 cows and took care of a large garden. Up to the day of her death, Josephine spent much of her spare time remembering the events of eras long past.

Note: #4726, Sprague & Frye. He was a hunter of buffaloes until he came toBelcourt in 1883. The buffaloes disappeared from Montana in 1882and J.B. took his family that same fall and went to Willow Bunch, Sask., CA., where they wintered. In the spring of 1883 they moved to St. John, Rollette Co., and in the fall of the same year to Belcourt, in the same county, Dakota Territory.

Some time after he came to Belcourt he was appointed INDIAN-Police on the reservation and held the job for twenty years. (It could hardly have been that long, however, if he died in 1902.) As he had not been there for twenty years.

On the 1885 Dakota Territory Census he was listed at age 48. Also a "Joseph", age 9, was listed as a son. ( I was told he was really a Belgarde, but raised by JB.
