My situation is that I don't know a whole lot of information on the Campbell side. I have so many different sources telling me so many different things. This is what I do know for sure. My grandmother is Marie Blanche "Pearl" Campbell married to Charles V. Dumas in Walhalla, North Dakota. Pearl was born on June 16, 1903 in Leroy, North Dakota. Her father was Charles Campbell, son of James Campbell and Isabelle Delorme. Charles Campbell was born April 19, 1880 in Leroy, North Dakota. He was half-breed Chippewa indian. His mother was indian. His father was Scotch. James Campbell information is unclear. His family is Scotch. Records are showing in the Census records that he was born in Massachusetts, then others showing Scotland. My aunt said the Campbells had a Scottish accent. Documents published with the Metis lineage is showing that William Campbell and Elizabeth Ross are his parents. That is what alot of sources are saying. His actual birth year is still unclear. It is bet!
ween 1834 and 1840. Her mother was Marie Veronique Ritchot, daughter of Raphael Ritchot and Isabelle Gladu. James Campbell lived in Walhalla, North Dakota. Pearl's husband Charles V. Dumas father's family were from Massachusetts. I had other sources tell me that it was William Colin Campbell and Elizabeth McGillivray, but i think it keeps coming back to William Campbell and Elizabeth Ross. My grandmother lived in Lampman, Sask for a little while but born in Leroy, North Dakota. My great grandfather died in December 1903. Pearl died in August 20, 1932. Baby Joseph died 3 days later. There were 5 boys all together. My dad was sent to Canada to live with his great aunt in lampman, sask. The other 3 boys sent to orphanage. We later found out it was an indian orphanage. My grandfather on Dumas side is Charles V. Dumas born Feb 28, 1891 in St. Rock, Quebec, Canada. Actually he told family members it was on leap year. His parents were Charles Dumas and Rosalie Dumas. They were 1st!
cousins. Charles Dumas was born in Manchaug, Massachusetts april 10,
1865 and died Sept 1921, son of Joseph Dumas and Esther Allaire. Rosalie Dumas parents were Treffle Dumas, son of Joseph Dumas and Esther Allaire and Rosalie Bresse. Please contact me at , if you have any information involving the Campbell side. I really would appreciate it. Thank you,
Patricia "Trisha" Dumas
