Memorable Manitobans: Baptiste Beauchemin (1838-1900)

Métis leader.

Born at St. Boniface on 3 November 1838, son of Benjamin Beauchemin (c1804-1870) and Marie Parenteau (c1815-?), nephew of Andre Beauchemin, around 1860 he married Marguerite McMillan (1840-1926) at the Red River Settlement. In 1869, he was a member of the December Convention, and subsequently was a French councillor to the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia formed by Louis Riel’s Provisional Government in 1870. He died at St. Charles, Manitoba on 2 December 1900.
