This is a new webpage.

All information regarding the Mississippi Sioux Judgment Fund Final Payment has been moved to the new Mississippi Sioux Judgment Fund for Mdewakanton and Wahpakoota Lineal Descendants webpage. See the new link above.

The Rocque Roundtable ProBoard Forum has not taken off as originally expected. Discussion on the Forum is only in regards to Rocque Family history, reunions, etc., which is probably the big reason for the lack of interest from Madaline Rocque lineal descendants.

There is no information regarding the current Mdewakanton Sioux Indians in Minnesota (MSIM) litigation on the Forum. You can find all the latest information on MSIM as well as the Mississippi Sioux Judgment Fund on their respective links found in the directory above.

Fourteen new threads have been added to the new ProBoard Forum.

This is a new webpage to keep Madaline Rocque lineal descendants connected and updated on our Native ancestry.   For the past 40 years we have stayed connected by family reunions, smaller cousin get-togethers and telephone conversations.   During the last 15 years of Wolfchild I & II litigation, by use of a "pyramid eMail notification system."

Beginning today, news and information will be posted, read and/or replied to, on the new ProBoard Forum.   On your first visit, you will be asked to identify yourself with an exchange of private eMails between you and the Forum Administrator or a Forum Moderator who are also Madaline Rocque lineal descendants.

With the release of the 7,440 Wolfchild I client names in an ALPHA-NUMERIC PLAINTIFF LIST used in the new Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of Minnesota verified complaint filed in United States District Court for the District of Columbia, an additional 43, never before known, relatives appeared.   This new 213 page ALPHA-NUMERIC PLAINTIFF LIST contains a "never before released" ID number that can be used to sort individuals into family groups, "a genuine genealogist nugget."

A listing of all 397 Madaline Rocque lineal descendants who appear in the aforementioned ALPHA-NUMERIC PLAINTIFF LIST who were represented by Mohrman & Kaardal, P.A. in the unsuccessful Wolfchild I Litigation can be found in the new ProBoard Forum.

If you would like to know more about Madaline Rocque (or refresh your memory of her) go to:

Informational Website

There is close to 300 other Madaline Rocque lineal descendants who were not represented by Mohrman & Kaardal, P.A. in the unsuccessful Wolfchild I Litigation.   This large group contains lineal descendants who could not gather all the birth or baptismal certificates required by Mohrman & Kaardal, P.A. in order to become certified clients before the court-imposed deadline.

This non-represented group also contain lineal descendants who were never aware of the Wolfchild I lawsuit that began in Court of Federal Claims, Washington, D.C.

Both of these two unrepresented lineal descendant groups need to be included with their cousins on the ALPHA-NUMERIC PLAINTIFF LIST.

Look for more on this project here when a structured collection process is finalized.   This can be completed by this Winter's end.

The Madaline Rocque lineal descendants on the ALPHA-NUMERIC PLAINTIFF LIST are only those who descend from Josephine Rocque Ebersold, her youngest daughter and it only contains the names of about half of them.

This project will also be gathering Madaline Rocque descendants from her other children who had families:

Matilda Rocque Ebersold Campbell, her oldest daughter.
Matilda Rocque had two Ebersold son's who produced their own families, Edward E. Ebersold (1871-1918) and Rudolph T. Ebersold (1875-1939).   Matilda had three George Campbell (1846-1913) children but I am not sure if they had families or not; Anne Blance Campbell (1881-1967), George Campbell (1886-1906) and Josephine Campbell (1887-1890).

Felix Rocque (1859-1890), her youngest son
In union with Susan Upanna (abt. 1844-????), they had three children but only one child produced a family, Josephine Rocque (1880-1913).   Josephine had two Whipple son's, Amos and Benjamin, but it is not known if they produced families.

Another item of information needs to be mentioned here today and it only pertains to the lineal descendants who appear on the ALPHA-NUMERIC PLAINTIFF LIST.   A list of newborn lineal descendants (born after the 2005 court-imposed cut-off date) will be kept up-to-date on the new ProBoard Forum.
