Hi earth,

I noticed on another post you mentioned you were married to a Turtle Mountain man. My husband's father was from there. But neither my husband or I have ever been to North Dakota let alone Turtle Mountain. Some day maybe. He has LOTS of cousins.

My husband's father was Louis Morin, son of Theodore Morin and Justine Caplette. He changed his name to Moran when he moved to this state I live in. That was under the relocation program. Where, of course, he immediately sought out other reservations and Indians and met my mother-in-law. ;) He wasn't the only one as a distant cousin of his married someone from the same tribe, actually a distant cousin of my mother-in-law's. He was a Decoteau.

Tansi;

My wife's great-grandmother was a Morin, the daughter of Cyprien Morin, who was instrumental in settling the Meadow Lake, Sask. community.  In our region, there are many Morins.

My husband and your wife are probably related somewhere up the line. The name Cyprien sounds familiar.

Tansi;

Thank you both for Morin names.  I will ask our nephew, an avocational geneologist, for information about these.

As I have previously posted, many Metis people moved to Turtle Mountain, during the 1800's.

That may be my husband's great uncle, earth. I have a picture of a Louis Morin who was brother to Theodore Morin. Small world, ennit? Everywhere I go, on the net and in real life, I run into my husband's relatives! LOL!

I tell my husband that his people take after the rabbit
they are everywhere.

Some of Morin changed their name to Moran.

My husband grandmother was born in 1882, her Father was
Louis Morin they were from a place south Winnepeg Mantoba.
I find the Louis Morin was named used over and over.
The families were very large 16 to 17 children each
