Boru, You may have already checked this. I went into Google and keyed in, Louise George Labatte, born 1786, Green Bay Wisconsin.
Gave a listing of many Labatte's. What I found interesting in one of the sites was the names of persons doing research and asking for communication. They may have into on Louise George's father. You never know. You may have already checked. Regards, Bob.

In his book, The Chiefs Wapahasha, by Mark Diedrich, Mr Diedrich tries to unravel the traditions and facts of the Dakota families.

on page 98 "On October 7, 1844, Reed married the widow of Amable Grignon (Archange LaBathe) of Prairie du Chein, who was Wapahasha's cousin."

Archange was born about 1803 to Angelique Wapasha, and Michael Labathe/LaBatte. Her brother was Francoise LaBathe, born about 1799.

This family history agrees with the afidavit given by James Reed for his wife's children applying for Sioux half-blood status under the 1837 Treaty of Prairie du Chein. The Chief Wapasha in 1844 was Wapasha III, his father had died in 1836. So Angelique Wapasha/Wabasha was a sister of Wapasha II and a daughter of Wapasha I.

My parents resided at Prairie du Chein. they are both dead. I had three brothers & one sister living the last i heard from them, two in Canada & one in Detroit. My sister lives at Read's Landing. She married James Read. I am one half blood of said band. I married Judith (Privos?), she has no Sioux blood in her. We have eight children now living.

Have trace this for the last 5 years. You have to be careful on how you follow the line back as many of the Labattes' named their children the same. It gets confusing if you are not careful. you can email me [email protected] I am willing to share my info. Louie George was married to Louisa Cadette. They had a couple of childre, one of them Michael Labatte Sr. He married Archange Berger, child Louie Berger Labatte, child Louie Napoleon or John Louie Riel Labatte. He married Marcelline Gaudette, child Lucie Labatte. She married Theophile Desjardins child Francis. His children are still alive. You can send an inquiry to the Archives of Canada and ask a question. They will tell you what sites to look in and will give you pointers on which way to go and look. If it is more than 96 years they will send certified copies to you for the registration of what you are looking for ei: marriage, birth, death. Each one of these people had multiple wives and many children.
