The search has gone back as far as year 2000 in other forums and probably longer with those who did not have the advantage of internet.
All dates related to this ancestor and his family are GUESSED, sources have been added when/where available. And these are some of my very first profiles so the bio formatting is not great.
In my search, the reason for starting WikiTree, I have had no better luck than my genealogy researchers. I did come across this couple being listed as Metis on this link, but the link is no longer active: http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/METIS/2006-01/1137525076

Question #1: How accurate would this information be on this once upon a time web link?
Question#2: Would anyone have access to books by Gail Morin:
:Volume 1: First Métis Families of Quebec, 1622-1748, Fifty-Six Families.
:Volume 2: Jean Nicolet and a Nipissing Woman,
:Volume 3: Martin Prevost and Marie Olivier Sylvestre Manitouabeouich
:Volume 4: Descendants of Pierre Couc dit Lafleur and Marie Mitequamigoukoue, an Algonquin
I have many names in these volumes I would love to check but will limit my query to… Probably in the second volume could someone check to see if there is a Doyle who came from Cork Ireland, landed (not sure where) and married a ”Sauvagesse”? Perhaps there was a generation between Father in Ireland and this Francois Diel. This missing generation may be the one who married a Metis or Sauvagesse. Note: checked the Library here and they cannot get the books. Ordering is not an option, especially when $6000 is the asking price on some of the volumes.
Question #3: to my Irish cousins. Are you searching for an ancestor by the name of John Jefferson Doyle, possibly out of Cork, was a captain of sorts; the story is a captain in the army but I question that, who had at least 1 son, possibly 2 sons, who came to North America in the early 1800’s? There is a possibility that there was a generation who came to America between JJ Doyle and this ancestor.
Another note: the names Francois Diel and brother Jean Baptist Diel seem to be to “conveniently” French for them to be first generations in Quebec. I do know they changed names as emigrants came into Quebec, I can see Francis Doyle being changed to Francois Diel, especially if there is already an existing such name. I do have issues with the name Jean Baptist, but I am fairly new to genealogy and still have lots to learn, and maybe John Baptiste was a usual name in Ireland. And it may be this name that will help my Irish cousins with their/my search?
Thank you to all for reading this and, in advance, thank you for any help.
