Re: Clifford Bouchie, brother of Dorothy (Bouchie) Mattins_ on

Hello Gerry,

Thanks for the suggestion but I had already checked that clifford out. That Clifford was of the Metis Bouchie line. There is also another who died in New York and came from Canada but he was already in the USA when our Clifford was living in Mississauga Ontario. Clifford Edward Bouchie was born in 1908.

I'm trying to find still living "cousins" who may know anything. I think I have located Kimberley Handspiker in Toronto (mentioned below) on Facebook. I'm hoping sooner or later I'll track someone down who knew him in recent years. I'm on Ancestry so if you ever need a look up let me know.

If they had lost contact with him, I wonder if the following person is Dorothy's older brother:
