    Notes:

    During the Nineteenth Century, the militia in York was organized and re-organized several times. The militia became active, however, on two occasions. The first time was during the War of 1812, when they served under General Brock at the capture of Detroit and at Queenston. Few, however, saw action after the capture and burning of the town of York in 1813. The second occasion was the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837.

    30 March 1820 - Louis FONTAIN received a Freegrant.

    One other child on 1851 census, but can not make it out.

    It is reported on his son John Fountain's death notice that his name is Lewis and he was born in England.

    Interesting email: I have requested more information and as yet no reply
    From: Laura Heidman [mailto:d_heidman@sympatico.ca] Sent: August-29-07 2:08 PM To: d_heidman@sympatico.ca Subject: Lewis Fountain (aka Louis Fontaine)

    Hello everyone, If you are reading this msg, it means I have you down as a researcher of the Fontaine Fountain family in Ontario.

    For a number of years I have struggled with the identity of Lewis Fountain and Mary Victoria Appleton, their ancestry and original origins before coming to Ontario in the early part of the 19th century.

    Last year, while researching my Husband's ancestors who were voyageurs in Lake Huron, I located an entry for a Louis Fontaine as a member of the voyageur group who relocated to Penetanguishene from Drummond Island after the War of 1812 and Treaty of Ghent (see http: www3.sympatico.ca sneakers list.htm). I was unable to find any long-term record of Louis Fontaine in the Penetanguishene area (i.e. 1851 census, etc). There is documentation of other Drummond Island voyageurs who left Penetang for the Gwilliambury area shortly after arriving. After checking more voyageur records, I found Louis Fontaine recorded on 27 Jun 1807 at Mackinac Island as working for Robert Dickson and Co. after wintering in Ouisconsin (see http: www3.sympatico.ca sneakers abbottlist.htm).

    On a hunch, this week while at the Penetanguishene Archives I checked the baptismal records for St Ann Catholic Church in Penetang and found the following (which I have translated from French and plan on scanning shortly):

    Two "illegitimate" children were baptized at St Ann Catholic Church in Penetanguishene on 21 Jan 1836.
    Louis Fontaine, son illegitimate of Louis Fontaine and Marie Flappleton. GodFather Francois Lanlois, godmother Marie Langlois.
    Susanne Fontaine, daughter illegitimate of Louis Fontaine and Marie FlAppleton. GodFather David Melain, godmother Susanne Macleod.
    Source: St Ann baptismal register. Located 27 August 2007 at the Penetanguishene Centennial Museum and Archives, Burke St
    The addition of the "FL" at the beginning of Appleton is odd, but I've seen instances of misspelled names by priests in the past. I've found no record of the name "Flappleton" in any other records and believe it is in error.

    I was pressed for time and didn't have an opportunity to do a full check of the records, so I don't know if Louis and Marie married in Penetanguishene as well, or if any other children were also baptised there. I have found instances where voyageurs baptised their children and married the "country wives" around the same time since in many cases this was their first access to clergy. I am hoping to get back down to Penetang in September and do a more concise search.

    But, after returning home on Monday, I searched the PRDH for Appleton and found a Marie Victoire Appleton baptised in Lachine, PQ the daughter of Jacques Appleton and Marie Charlotte Billet. Lachine occupied a strategic position on the fur route as a departure and arrival point for trading expeditions. It was also an important centre for storing the Montréal merchants' furs and for trading goods.

    Jacques Appleton did not have any parents listed at the time of his marriage to Marie in Montréal on 14 Jun 1790. However, Marie has an extensive genealogy recorded in the PRDH. I have yet to get all the data entered into my database, but once I do I would be happy to share the information with anyone who is interested.

    If you are interested in any copies of the documents or wish to discuss information I've listed above please feel free to contact me. Laura Knight Heidman laura@parrysound.com

    Notes:

    St Joseph's Roman Catholic Church Phone: (705) 426-7424 Buried with Grandson William Eli Fountain and his Wife. Was 102 years old when she died. 1851 census says that she was born in 1797. I am starting to think that there was a marriage breakdown and he had another family. It is an issue that Louis is not buried with her. There is another Louis who stats are the same, age, place of birth that is buried in Walkerton with another family. Just a thought. Sandi Sullivan.
