We have what appears to be an incomplete Copy of the Flandreau First Presbyterian Church Register. The Deaths section is incomplete. mdewakan, again i ask, would you be willing to postcopiesof what you have? One person for whom,I know their descendents are searching ,is Mary jane(Wagiwin) Robinson. do you have a death record for her?do you know where she4is buried?
I believe she is buried in Minnesota. I do not have a death record for her but looking at patterns of family moving, I would say that she is there. Thomas Robinson traveled to South Dakota but always came back to Minnesota. He was born there and died there. I am going through computer files and notes. I am on break from school so I will do some more research What about tribal records? Anybody talk to the tribal enrollment officer about it?
yes, according to one of her descendents, they did,but got no reply.The descendent even went to Minnesota and searched there with out any success.All they have is the death certificate showing she died at Flandreau in 1911.
A cousin told me about Ft. Peck and how there is an Assiniboine connection. I did some preliminary searching and I have found Robinson's on Chippewa/Objibwe/Assiniboine census. There are Mary Robinson's on it. They were in Northern Minnesota and that would also explain the french canadian connection. This may be other route to go. I know that they are mixed native american types.
