Welcome Dawna!

Very interesting! I’ve been trying to learn more about Adeline DENIG’s origins. I have her born 1854 at Fort Union, North Dakota, daughter of Betsy ASSINIBOINE & Edouard Thompson DENIG/ DENNING (1812-1858) who was born in Pennsylvania, USA. Do you have info on that family?

Hi gstill
I have a few articles on Adeline Denig. I have that she & Charles were married about 1879 in perhaps the Boyne Settlement, B. 25 Mar. 1857 in St. James RRS, daughter of Edwin Thompson Denig and Haikeeskaweya (Deer little Woman). My article reads that Deer Little Woman is Edwins Second wife. Denig had an eldest son, Robert with his previous Indian woman who there is little known about. He had three other children: Sarah, Alexander and Ida Born in 1854. I see that my articles conflict in Adelines birth date one says shes born 1854 other says 1857. It says the family moved to Red River Setlement in Canada in 1856.
I have a few articles and pictures if you are interested?
Edwin has a few books that I would like to get hold of: Five Indian Tribes of the Upper Missouri and The Assiniboine.
Thank you,

Thanks very much Dawna
This essentially agrees with what I have, so I guess I'm on the right track.
