I am look for any information I can find on my ancestors, who I believe were some of the first settlers of Pope and Swift Counties. Their names are Henriette Mireau, her parents Joseph Mireau (aka Amirault, Amero) and Emilie (Amelia) Michaud.
They were all born in Quebec and moved to Swift Co and then to Pope Co between 1868 and 1878. Henriette died on Aug 18 1890 and this was mentioned in the Swift County Monitor (Benson MN) on Aug 22 1890. In the article she is called Mrs. Shevelier (it is actually Chevalier) since she was married to Medard (aka Madore) Chevalier. According to her death certificate though she died in Chippewa Falls Township, Pope Co. MN. Henriette and her parents I am told are all buried at St. Malachy's Catholic Cemetary, Clontarf, Swift Co. MN.
Although I have more information on Henriette I am more interested in what happened to her parents Joseph Mireau and Emilie Michaud. Any information would be appreciated.
