1900 Scrip Claim for Deceased Son Patrice

On 17 Jul 1900, Marie Rose claimed Métis scrip on behalf of her deceased son, Patrice:

North-West Halfbreed Claims Commission 1900
at: Maple Creek
appeared: Mary Garriepy nee Grant
as a witness on behalf of: deceased son Patrice
Residence: Bear Creek Assn.
Knowledge of deceased: Yes, I was his mother
Birth of deceased: At White Horse Plains, about forty two years ago
Parents of deceased: Pierre Garriepy, hbd (son of Francois Garriepy and Julie Gladu), Mary Grant, hbd (daughter of Cuthbert Grant and Mary McGillis)
Patrice never received scrip, neither did I or my husband. All my family received scrip except Romuald and Patrice. I applied for this scrip at Batosh at the first scrip commission but could not get it. Patrice was 22 years old when he died at St. Laurent. We left Manitoba the year of the first Rebellion and never went back there to live again. We went to Batoshe where were lived for over 30 years. He died about 17 years ago at Duck Lake.
Sworn: at Maple Creek, 17 July 1900, by Mary Garriepy (her mark)

1900 Supporting Statement for son John's Scrip Claim

On 11 Jul 1900, John Gariepy, a resident of Bear Creek, completed a Métis scrip application at Maple Creek, which included the following sworn statement from his mother:

Mary Garriepy née Grant. I am the mother of John Garriepy the claimant. My father's name was Cuthbert Grant and my mother Marie McGillis. My husband's (Pierre Garriepy's) father was Francois Garriepy and his mother Mary Gladu. My son John will be twenty six years old this fall. He was born at Batoche.

(?) Death

Marie Rose Gariepy passed away sometime after the 1911 census was taken.

While some researchers posit that Marie Rose passed away sometime between 1892 and 1899, she was completing scrip documents in Jul 1900, and residing with her son Charles in 1911.
