Looking for information on Edwin Hurtubise. There are three Edwins
buried in Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery.
Does anyone have the line for Troy Hurtubise, the hockey player?
I have been communicating with a researcher that has been working on the name ORTIBESE [HEURTUBISE].
There were three children: Peter, born 1834; Terese, born 1837; and Frederic, born 1841. These children were
all born in Minnesota, and the children of Peter and Emily. In the 1850 Census, they were living in the
household of Denny and Emily Cherier, with no word of their parents.
Also in the Minnesota 1850 Census, there is an ORTIBESE. It states: see HEURTUBISE.
then adds: OWENS, JOHN PHILLIPS - Born near Dayton, OH, in 1818, his father died when John was only 7 years
old. He spent his youth working on a farm, with only occasional schooling. He then attended Woodward College
in Cincinnati for two years, and resolved to learn the printing business. He had already read much about the
newly settling areas in the northwest, and was very interested when he was asked by a Dr. A. Randall to enter
into a partnership to publish a newspaper in St. Paul. Randall soon sold his interest in the venture
to Major Nathaniel McLean, and the resulting firm became known as 'McLean & Owens'. Owens continued in
the newspaper business for some 12 or 13 years, being seven years the editor of the Minnesotan,
a leading journal of the Territory. As a political writer, he always wielded great influence.
