I was wondering if anyone has any information on David Kitto and his parents? The earliest information I have is from 1885 and shows David is 13 and lives with his grandfather, then in 1887 he is listed under Thomas & Julia Rouillard as step-son. Any help or guidence would be greatly appreciated as I'm helping a close friend trace his ancestors. If you'd like to email me privately, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and I appreciate all the information on this site!
Jimmy, Thanks for posting the family trees. I knew Father Dan pretty well towards the end of his life. He was a treasure and became very involved with the lives of the families on our reservation "Spirit Lake Tribe". He very much did gods work and as you've posted his family trees, his legacy lives on. Thank you very much, as it sure helped me and my family tree. "Spirit/Wellington tree."
Hello Everyone if you notice on the tree SAV posted that came from a lady at the enrollment office at StandingRock. She had more in her little folder but she let me have a copy of that just because we had Tasinatopawin on our pedigree chart. But the names instead of win for women at the end of the name they use Lady and add it to the beginning of the name. Also the names good feather women and grey shawl women are names In james redwings family could these be the same women. Also on the Wabasha tree that jimmy posted the line of Thomas Wapate had a daughter bozawin who married a james thompson these are the parents of James pay pay who George PayPay and Tasinatopawin adopted. So there is some kind of relationship going on here. Scararm
Re: Standing Rock Yes there are relationships in Standing Rock. The name "Pay Pay" is a family in Wakpala, SD. I'm not sure what county it is in but other names that are of interest are LaFromboise, DeMarrias, Chapman, McLaughlin and Cadotte. A good way to check would be to look at US censuses on Heritage Quest for this area. Or you could check BLM records or read the old Standing Rock censuses. The Standing Rock censuses are available on microfilm through the ND Heritage Center and the LDS Family Center in Bismarck, ND. However people were sometimes misidentified as to the correct band so just look for names. My great Grandfather is Sisseton and he was born in Yellow Medicine, MN and we ended up at Standing Rock. Apparently a group came in wagons to Standing Rock around the late 1800's. My great uncle and other members of the family frequently went back to Yellow Medicine to visit relatives on into the 1920's but eventually we lost contact. vmarier
I had seen where you posted the name Reinville, and wondered about that. Then on this chart I see Rainville. If you want to check it further, go to Quebec and look for the name De Rainville. This was my ancestor, and he was one of the founders of Quebec, a very important man there. The De Rainville family came from France in the late 1500's.
If you give me a name and date, I might already have it in my genealogy program. By the way, I noticed some asking about a good program. I think I have tried them all, and Legacy does it all. I have one file which has over 50,000 names in it, so it can handle it all. You will also have no trouble adding your Indian names and the way each generation changes.
On the Kitto Family Tree. Near the center of the page, & a bit to the right. There is a name that appears to have the last name Lafferty in it. When I look at the page, I see a Either a Joe or Leo + Lutta Lafferty. In Dakota Dialect. Duta is Red. In Lakota Dialect Luta is Red. In this case Lutta has two "t's" in it. If this name is representing "Red" in Sioux. On my Lafferty side of my family. There is a Red Star married to a Moves Her. I've seen a Maggie Wicanpidutawin (Maggie Red Star Woman), in various records before. However, nothing that connects her to Lafferty. Or my Red Star. I'm only wondering if there may or may not be a connection. So does this Joe/Leo + Lutta Lafferty have anything to do with my descendancy?
Sav, here is what I know about the Lafferty connection. Joe Kitto came to Martin, SD and helped my Uncle James Ross, son of Amos Ross. He married Luta (Red) Lafferty and they may have had more than one daughter, Mary Louise. Joe was KIA during WWII and is buried in Belgium or France. His daughter is married and had children. They live in western SD.

In Loving Memory
Cpl. Joseph E. KITTO United States Army "C" Company 803rd Tank Destroyer Battalion 113th Cavalry (Mechanized) Group
(Lt. Col. Charles W. GOODWIN), in September 1944 1st Platoon, "C" Company, 803rd T. D. Bn. was attached to "A" Troop, 125th Cavalry (Mechnd) Recon Squadron operating as a detail of 113th Cavalry (Mechanized) Group (Colonel William S. BIDDLE)
Cpl. Joseph E. KITTO was born on 30 September 1912 at Tuthill, Martin, South Dakota. He enlisted under Army Serial Number 37152524. On 7 September 1944, entering Hasselt (Belgium), KITTO was a member of 1st Platoon, "C" Company, 803rd T. D. Bn. manning some Anti Tank Artillery. Coming from the beaches of Normandy, where they had landed three months earlier, - on 3 September 1944 803rd T. D. Bn. entered Belgium. On 4 September KITTO' s platoon was attached to "A" Troop, 125th Cavalry (Mechnd) Recon Squadron. On 7 September, whilst 82nd Armored Recon Battalion (Lt. Col. Wheeler G. MERRIAM) was securing Hasselt, - to 1st Platoon the order was given to guard and defend all five main roads, linking Hasselt to the outside world. To Cpl. KITTO a key position was assigned, - the Hasselt gateway to Brussels. Unfortunately, the position (UTM co- ordinates 310. 620) was well within the range of enemy artillery radius, one mile to the north, on the northern bank of the Albert Canal. In no time Cpl. KITTO was instantly killed in Combat by a direct hit, possibly of a stray high- explosive shell. He lies buried at Henri- Chapelle (Belgium) American Military Cemetery. At the occasion of the 56th remembrance of the above described events, Carrey J. BISSON, Joseph' s grand- niece, filed this report,- "We visited Henri- Chapelle Cemetery on 8th September this year during our holiday in Europe. I was moved to arrive and find the flowers on Joseph' s grave. (...) Since our family is of Native American descent, I wanted to visit the cemetery for a special purpose. Joseph was never again to see his native land, given his demise during the war. I brought with me a package of earth, which was a mixture of soils gathered in preparation of our family' s 1988- family reunion. The soils came from two places, the land in Minnesota from which our ancestors were relocated during the Sioux uprising in the late 1800' s & the land of Santee, Nebraska where they were relocated to, on a reservation and told to become farmers. The contrast of the two soils separately, speaks volumes. The soil from Minnesota is dark, rich and fertile. The soil from the reservation land is sandy, light and not great for farming. Two of my aunts and an uncle took these bags to a medecine man and they were mixed together, blessed, and distributed in smaller bags to all family members. The theme of our reunion was,- "We come to touch the earth of our ancestors and remember . . ." We have gathered every four years for the reunion since then. As a young girl I had collected various rocks from northern Minnesota and have kept them with me for a couple of decades now. My aunt had explained that they were well seasoned and ready for a medecine bag. I was presented a beaded bag by a cousin. In that bag I keep the rocks, along with some sacred sage. We burn sage to purify before ceremonies and when we pray. At this year' s reunion, another cousin presented me with some sage in memory of her father. I brought with me to Henri- Chapelle Cemetery the sage, and four of the long held rocks from our homeland. We burned the sage and purified the area, we emptied the bag of earth in a circle on Joseph' s grave. I carefully placed one rock deep at each corner of his headstone (as to not get caught in the mowers). The people attending to the cemetery were very diligent and respectful. The care they take in keeping the grounds is impressive. Joseph was my grandmother, Opal KITTO' s brother. My grandmother, Opal passed on when I was eight years old. I feel that she would be pleased, as would Joseph about his final resting place. Henri- Chapelle is a beautiful setting and I made sure to take many pictures of that area for those relatives not able to travel there themselves. We honored veterans at our most recent family reunion in July of this year. Joseph was one of those veterans we honored. Since Joseph was never able to make it back to his homeland, I felt it important to bring some of his homeland to him in hopes that it would help his soul to rest, helping to close that circle."
"They shall not grow old as we who are left to grow old. Time will not weary them, nor age condemn. And at the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them."
To those who gave "their all" the Honor and Glory is theirs. They heard our country's call. They went forth and counted not their own life dear, but offered it gladly in humanity's name -- for God and for the right.
The greatest war in the history of the world closed August 14, 1945, when the warring nations laid down their arms. The Germans, Japanese, and all their allies lay prostrate, defeated. They who knew no mercy and who had violated every law of humanity and civilization,
THEY BEGGED FOR MERCY. THE VICTORY WAS OURS!
Cpl. Joseph E. Kitto is a part of that history of keeping this nation free. God Bless America
