( One of the brothers of Louis Malaterre was the one that was killed at the last big battle between the Sioux and Metis. I have read of this battle known as "The Battle of The Grand Coteau" it happened in 1852, in what is now the state of, North Dakota, of the several books and articles I've read of this, the best account of this incident is given in the book "Cuthbert Grant of Grantown" after a long search, my wife, Winona, found copies of this book in Canada, it is well worth reading for any one interested in a true history, as these accounts were recorded by the priests that accompanied the buffalo hunters.
This Malaterre that was killed was the only fatality and when they recovered his mutilated body there were sixty seven arrows and three rifle wounds in it.
The Whiteford and McGillis boys were also some of our long past relatives, it seems three of the young men had rode out to parley with the Sioux and instead they were taken prisoner, the three were allowed to escape by a white man that was living among the Sioux, two were able to escape recapture because they had faster horses. The brother of Louis Malaterre was not as fortunate however.
My mother also told me that she was told, her grandmother, Euphrosine Marchand Dit Lapierre had been found out on the praririe somewhere by Louis Malaterre, he carried mail for the Hudson' Bay Company.
It seems a small party had all been killed by the Sioux, prior to the attack the girl had been hidden by her people. Long after the Sioux had gone, hunger and thirst drove her from hiding.
She stayed around the site surviving on rain water and the carcass of one of the buffalo that had been killed before the attack by the Sioux.
She was said to be taken by Louis Malaterre to the Gray Nuns in Saint Anthony Falls which later became St. Paul, Minnesota there to be raised and taught by said nuns, he would go to see her through the years and when she was older they were married.
In the newspaper article I have on Charles Malaterre, my grandfather, which was written in 1931 it has him having said his mothers name was Euphrosine DuPuyer. Of course the reporter has him named "Charley Militaire "also.
.The word "dit" in French means the same as "Also Known As" does in English In the very harsh environment that these people lived in, countless children were orphaned and were raised by either god-parents or relatives or other families whose name they would take.
. There are no doubt some unintentional mistakes made in the recording of their lives and any thing could be true. The newspaper article also lists my grandfather as being 75 in 1931 which again is not the same as this. I would, when it comes to things that were recorded verbally, question the ages and dates, with no calendars, who could be that accurate?.
I do not claim to be the family historian , I only write what has been documented or told to me.
A few of the things, I have seen or heard personally, the things related to me by others, were told to be the truth to the best of their recollections , this is not meant to be a fanciful history, but rather a history that anyone with any of these peoples blood should be proud of.
