Interested in the history of the Trumblas in USA and CANADA

Journal by apollo285

I have a copy of "Tremblay Family History, Trumbla, Trumble, Trombley, Trumbly".

My great grandfather was Jean Baptiste Trumbla of Perry Oklahoma. He participated in the Oklahoma Land Rush and was successful in obtaining a patent on ownership of land in this manner. I have a copy of this patent which I obtained during a visit to Perry in 1999.

My grandmother was Libby Trumbla who married George Northop. Their daughter Cecile was my mother. They made their way west to Bellingham, Washington.

Around 1913 Libby and George moved to Canada and went to mid-northern Manitoba to work a homestead near Waterhen, Manitoba. This venture eventually failed and George returned to the USA where he lived until his passing in Union Gap, Washington. Libby stayed on in Canada for some years and then moved back to the USA until her passing in Bellingham, WA.

There is an interesting person of interest in the Tremblay Family History. Marie Gauthier dit St.Germaine who was born Mary Storer in Wells Maine and was captured by Indians in around 1704 and was taken to Canada. She was held in captivity for around 3 years and then released to a convent in Quebec. She converted to Catholicism and eventually married a young French Canadian by the name of Jean Gauthier dit St. Germaine. Marie (Mary) never returned to her family in Maine.
