Albert, Lilly and Albert Jr LeClaire

Here is my mothers, mother, father, and brother. The mother and father to Albert Jr, Selisha, Raymond, Margaret, and Russell LeClaire.

Lilly was sent to Carlisle Indian School. She returned to Mendota in 1904 and met Albert LeClaire, and the rest is history!

Lilly died in 1940.

Albert LeClaire died in 1942. He was hurt in a car accident, no hospital would help him because he was INDIAN. He was brought by an ambulance to the Pipestone Hospital were he died about a month later.

When I dance at Pow Wows I always wish I could have  danced with my mother, grandparents, auntie, uncles. But for now they dance with me in spirit. Sharon
