An interesting historical character, whose political leanings have proven “difficult to summarize.” He exhibited several seeming reverses in position with respect to securing Métis and original settler rights, in both 1869-1870 and 1885 — alienating other activists, fleeing the contested terrain, then afterward seeking to reconcile, while yet testifying in Crown trials against those who supported the Métis cause.  Reputedly, he was known in some circles as “un vire-capot…terrible ce Nolin,” (of fickle loyalties), while others observed “il a eu peur” (he was not particularly brave). Although his behavior suggests he was guided largely by self-interest, he was apparently generous enough to adopt at least two children (while he had nine with his second wife and surviving children from his first marriage as well).

  1. Candice says:

    You left out the son of Rosalie Lepine and Godfroi/Godfrey Lagimoniere/Lagimodiere/Lajimodiere.. Jean Baptiste … He is my great grandfather. You can find the scrip record using the archivia net tool …

    • Wilfred Burton says:

      I am the grandson of Gabriel Nolin. I am interested to find out more about Jean Baptiste Lagimodiere (Nolin), son of Rosalie. Was he adopted by Charles, etc. Any other information about William, Maxime Charles Marie, would also be appreciated.

      • Tracy says:

        Hi, I am the great grand daughter of Jean Baptiste Lajimodiere,,I am having a very difficult time finding any info on him. Have you been sucessfull?
        Thank you

    • Wilfred Burton says:

      Candice, I would be very interested in knowing more about your great grandfather, Jean Baptiste. I am the grandson of Gabriel his half brother. What became of Jean Baptiste? Who did he marry? Who are his children, grand children, etc.? I believe some of the children live in the Cold Lake area but don’t know much about what happened to him.

  2. Tracy says:

    Hi there my great grandmother was married to Jean Baptiste, her name was Caroline Josephine Lagimodiere, he had several children with her and previous to her he was married to her sister Veronique Trottier. My mother was born in Cold Lake and she has many cousins there still. Unfortunately I do not have much information on My great grandfather Jean Baptiste, I have ran into many roadblocks tracing him.

    Would that be Gabriel Nolan that you speak of then? Do you have contact with many relatives?

  3. Wilfred Burton says:

    Thanks Tracy…Gabriel Nolin was my grandfather. His father was Charles and his mother was Rosalie Lepine. I have many relatives in Alberta (Edmonton, St. Albert, Red Deer, Calgary and a sister in Cold Lake and one in St. Paul). I ran into a student at the University of Regina once that was related but in the end she didn’t take my class and I never got to know her. It would be interesting to find out more about Jean Baptiste’s family because (this is hearsay) I think some of the families reverted back to the last name Lagimodiere from Nolin. Is that correct?

    Do you know the names of Jean Baptiste’s children?

    I know which branch of the Lagimodiere’s Godfrey was from, it that would help. He was related to Louis Riel.

  4. Wilfred Burton says:

    I have that Jean Baptiste was first married to Marie Dumont and then Veronique. MMM? He is a dark horse.

  5. Tracy says:

    JB and Veronique’s children:
    Pierre 21 march 1911
    JB Arthur 28 Sept 1912
    Louis 11 January 1913
    Gabriel 04 May 1915
    Alexandre Noel 24 Dec 1916

    Delima 21 February 1935
    Rose Adelina 21 March 1923
    Francis 30 April 1925
    Michel William 28 November 1920
    Marie 24 Dec 1921
    Alice 11 Oct 1926

    I received this info from Saskatchewan Diocese, it may be off as I know there were twin girls as well Nora and Cora.

    Yes, some of them including my grandfather used Nolin and Nolan, on my mom’s birth cert it says Nolan. I’ve been trying to get her métis status but because of her having a different name than her father it’s been hard to prove .

    Romain is the link to Louis Riel right? Do you have info on Godfrey . Birth, death etc?

  6. Wilfred Burton says:

    Godfrey was born in 1848 to Romain Lagimodiere (there are different spellings but I use this one) and Marie Vaudry. He died in 1874 just three years after his son, Jean Baptiste Nolin (Lagimodiere) was born. He was born in St. Boniface and died in Ste. Anne, Manitoba. He married Rosalie in 1870. She was the niece of the famous Maxime and Ambroise Lepine. Her father was Jean Baptiste Lepine. She probably named her son after her father. She and Godfrey were married in St. Norbert, Manitoba. I have all of my genealogy recorded on Tribal pages which you can look at. You just need the password (1885). http://burton1w.tribalpages.com/tribe/browse?userid=burton1w&view=101&pid=130&bview=0&bpid=130&randi=229121288

    My sister in Cold Lake-Grand Centre is Elizabeth Evans (She goes by Liz). My sister in St. Paul is Joyce Croteau. She used to live in the Bonnyville area at Fort Kent. My nephew is Andrew Pilat and he lives in Cold Lake too. Do you know them?

    If you need help with getting your Metis card, you just have to show scrip records, etc. Those are quite easy to find.

  7. Tracy says:

    I don’t know any of them, I did meet a Nolan in school in The Yukon and her dad is Pete Nolin Lagimodiere who lives in Cold Lake, I have a cousins and an Aunt in St Paul! And I do have many relatives in Edmonton. We are in BC

  8. Wilfred Burton says:

    There are a lot of Nolin descendants in BC too. You should join the Nolin family page on Facebook. There are always new Nolins popping up from time to time on there.

  9. Tracy says:

    Checked out your tribal pages!!! Great! Thanks so much:)

    My name is Gary Smith, my grandmother (mother’s side of the family) was Jeanne Phillips and her maiden name was Lepine. she was a direct descendant of Ambroise Lepine, who was her grandfather. Ambroise Lepine’s photo and royal pardon are in the RCMP museum in Regina SK…When I was stationed with the RCAF in Winnipeg, my grandmother had me go to the St Boniface church where Ambroise is buried (same cemetery as Louis Riel) to keep his graveside in order….
