I have my great grandmother's info but am looking for the possiblity of an indian connection to this family.
Here is what I have ....

Nazaire Lagace married Adele Duguay.
They had children and I would like to find all of them.
I do have my great great grandmother, Emilie Lagace. She married Robert Loiselle betwwen 18 jan.-18 feb. 1866 in port daniel, Quebec. Her obit states she was 92 years old when she died and was born in 1840-1850 ...died 28 Feb. 1931 in Flint Michigan.

She came to Cheboygan, Michigan around 1897 with her husband Robert Loiselle. He died and is buried in Cheboygan 1898. Robert and Emilie's daughter, Catherine Loiselle,my great grandmother married a fullblood Chippewa man...my great grandfather. The same year of 1898..in Cheboygan. They had many children...my grandmother was Josephine Marie Lancour.
When my gr.gr. grandfather died, Emilie married again, a chippewa man...George Duffina. Why would a canadian woman come directly over to the US and pick two indian men to marry here....? I get the feeling she was indian or maybe mixed...metis....Does anyone know about my family? I also wonder why she changed her name from Lagace to Miller.
On my gr granmother's death record Emilie was called Millie
Miller..many other records list her as unknown...or Millie Wezell spelling chanmged to pronounce the french name...
When did this family change to Miller...Who came to the US and who stayed in CAnada...Were they Metis...or indian at all.
I have photos...Catherine is beautiful and "looks" metis....if you can confirm or add any info to my research I will greatly appreciate it..and will help you also. if possiblr, in return.
Sincerely,
Deanna

correction please note:
CAtherine is the one that married Henry Lancour, of Cheboygan, Mi. full-blood chippewa
again after his death she married George Duffina, either mixed-blood or full....not Emile....Emile was married to Robert Loiselle and they are Catherine's parents.

Don't know if you're still looking, but "Les Registres de La Gaspesie" by P. Gallant lists the following children of Nazaire Lagace (dit MEUNIER dit MIGNIER) & Adele DUGUAY:
Nazaire born Newport Quebec 3 January 1841
Marie born Newport May 1842
Emilie born Newport July 29 1844
Benjamin born Newport July 12 1846
Narcisse born Newport June 2 1848
Raphael born Newport Sept 7 1850

Note there may be other younger siblings, the book cuts off at 1850.

I'm currently trying to find a link between this family and my ancestor Philomene Lagace born in the same area not long after (could be daughter of one of the boys above, or a younger sibling).

Well I think she changed her name from Lagacé to Miller because Miller is english for Meunier so her real name was Meunier dit Lagacé or Lagacé dit Meunier, like me!!

The ancestor of the Lagacé family was André Mignier or Migner. Mignier was transformed into Meunier, which is French for miller. The original name is Mignier dit Lagacé, not Meunier.
