I am looking for the parents and hopefully the grand parents of Fr Albert
Lacombe who went out west . Particularly interested in the Duhamel connection.

Albert Lacombe was born in 1827 in the Parish of St. Sulpice, near Montreal.

He was the first born of eight children to Albert and Agathe Lacombe. His
mother's name was Duhamel
Her mother was apparently Ojibway. l
In 1849, he was ordained at St. Hyacinthe

Thanks for any info

Fran Wilcox
