There is a letter written to Riggs in June 1865 from this soldier of the 6th Regiment, he is in Montgomery Alabama when he is writing the letter. The letter is in Dakota. He is asking Riggs about 5 of the Dakota scouts that are in the lake Traverse area, wonders if they are being treated ok by military.
Is there a roster of the 6th MN Vol, 16th army Corp 2nd Division?
In the Missouri Fur Trade Ledgers which are posted here, in the accounts at Big Stone Lake in 1845, there is a Pierre Allard listed under some Renville's. Joseph's daddy?
vicky: I don't know about Joseph, but I found a Pierre allard was born 1805 in the Red VerColony at Pembina. His wife was Louise vivier(b. 1813). they had a t least a daughter named Genevieve(b. 1831), who married Gaspard Gorneau on January 23, 1938 at Pembina, ND.
Sara might try looking at the 1850 Minnesota Territorial Census , and the 1860 Minnesota census. Try typing in 1850 Minnesota Teritorial Census . Yshe should be able to find a website that has the census.
