“[The children of Oliver Armel] were Catherine, born 1824; Oliver, 1826; Louis, 1830; Joseph, 1833; Nancy, 1836 and Prosper.” (Jipson, 256)
In the census of 1900, her son Frank recorded that she was born in Illinois.
“Catherine Armel, Oliver’s first born, married Oliver Lamere, a Frenchman from Canada who located first at Lake Koshkonong. When the Winnebagoes went to Long Prairie, he went with them, making several trips to Wisconsin, finally locating in the vicinity of Madison, where he died. He had three sons, Moses, Joseph, and Frank, and two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary. Elizabeth was the mother of Angel Decora.” (Jipson, 256)
"In the treaty at Prairie du Chien, in 1829, thirty years before Dr. Chapman wrote, we find the orthography "Oliver Armell,” whose two children, Catharine and Oliver, each received a section of land from the Winnebagoes — evidently because their mother was of that tribe." (Lyman C. Draper, Note 2, in Butler, 69)
