Looking for any info on Weldon S. Lapointe

I am looking for a connection between Weldon S. LaPointe and Ernie LaPointe. Do they have the same father, Claude LaPointe.
I am a LaPointe and am doing research regarding the French Canadian LaPointes and the South Dakota LaPointes.
Thank you
Suzanne LaPointe Wodka


Hi this is my first time writing on a Web site so please bear with me. I am more interested in Standing Holy's husband than in Sitting Bull. He is a LaPointe. What I need to know is where he came from and who his parents are and what their names were. As I am a LaPointe also and have been working on this for a year and have hit a dead end as far as my LaPointe side of this very large family. My Great grand father is as far as I have been able to go. He was born in 1850's and died in 1910. He was married to a Chartrand and I have evidence that they had at lease 6 children. My grandpipier (fr)being one of them. It know that they came down to the states through Wisconsin to Illinois in the 1890's. But the Gr.Grnd parents stayed in Canada.
Fr. Marquette and Fr. Claude Allowez established LaPointe on Madiline Island Wis. Was this because of the land or because of a person traveling with them?
I am also the Gr. Gr. Grd daughter of the founders of St. Raymond Canada on my Grandmothers sit she was a Carrier, and part of the Skinner family.
Can you help me create a time line between the family ties.
Thank you in advance
