So, one can see that in the Incorporation documents of the Association Articles of the Cowasuck North America, Inc. N-8024 (in the previous posting) regarding Cindy and Harry Shover of Orleans, Vermont....that for whatever reason(s) it would seem that Harry and Cindy Shover were resigning from this Inc. on September 04, 1996 because of a "smear campaign" that involved Howard F. Knight, Jr. and Darrell R. Larocque, who was associated quite closely with "Chief" Homer Walter St. Francis Sr. and "Grand Chief" Walter Watso, etc.

This "List c/c" is quite revealing too. Interesting that they did not include Paul Wilson Pouliot's name to the bunch.

In the next following post, I think the "reason" why Paul Pouliot was NOT included on this "LIST" compiled by Darrell R. Larocque will be explained in the next document. Of course, perhaps the "LIST" extended onto the 2nd page (of which sadly I do not have) may have had Paul Pouliot's name listed; but obviously these "Chief's" (especially Howard F. Knight Jr. in particular) that are listed on this document, were actively doing a "smear campaign" against Mr. Pouliot's early 1993 created Cowass North America, Inc. "group" for various reason(s).

Documents Dated June 02, 1995 Etc. Wabanaki Nation Fax Dated August 26, 1997 Etc:

Document 01: Fax Page 04. Letter dated June 02, 1995 from the Town of Swanton, Vermont to Mr. David Hill at 7 West Minister Street, Suite ?1 in Bellows Falls, VT 05101. "Dear Mr. Hill: Per our telephone conversation, enclosed pleased find Homer St. Francis's birth certificate we have recorded in our Town Office. On this certificate it states his parents races. I hope this is helpful. Very truly yours, Judy Vanslette, Asst. Town Clerk.

Document 02: Fax Page 03. Birth Certificate Index Card of Florence Hakey Card No. 840. Date of Birth: 1896 Month July Day 4. Maiden Name of Mother: Delia (Martelle). Mother's Birthplace: Swanton. Mother's Residence: Swanton. Full Name of Father: Eli.
Father's Birthplace: Spencer, Mass. Father's Occupation: Laborer. Certified Copy Attest A. John Yacavoni, Director Public Records Division State of Vermont Date: Nov. 12, 1996.

Document 03: Fax Page 02. Chart of the St. Francis Family. Abenakis of Missisquoi from official records. *Indians from oral tradition. Apparently, David Hill was indicating his lineage was of Pierre-Jean a.k.a. Greylock a.k.a. Wawanolewat and his wife Helene., down to their son Jean Baptiste a.k.a. La Tete Blanche a.k.a. The White Head and whose sister Charlotte married to Francis Michisabuke a.k.a. Captain Francis a.k.a. Titigaw (Chief at Missisquoi) whose son Captain St. Francis married to Jean Claude and they had Francis St. Francis who married to Charlotte, and they had a son Michel Frances a.k.a. Mitchel St. Francis who married to Cordelia Collaret or Colomb, and they had Nazaire St. Francis who married to Agles Stag and or Clara Hoag. Then they had Nazaire St. Francis Jr. who married to Florence Hakey, who then had Homer W. St. Francis Sr. who married to Patricia "Patsy" Partlow. Again, the question begs to be answered, IS this genealogical information correct. Eventually I will show and provide the genealogical documentary evidence on this family ancestry of the St. Francis family. It is indeed an interesting genealogical chart, but I ponder if it is legitimately correct in its details.

Document 04: Fax Page 01. Certified True Copy of Birth Certificate regarding Homer Walter St. Francis Sr., son of Nazaire St. Francis Jr. and Florence Hakey. This birth record clearly indicated that the ethnicity of the said son, is "White".
Apparently, David Hill was beginning to investigate, review and evaluate the merits of genealogical foundations for these so-called "Chiefs" of his own interest and agenda in late May or early June 1995. 

Document 05: Birth Certificate of Homer Walter St. Francis Sr. Non Certified copy. Note that the parents and the son are identified as ethnic "White" on the record of birth for Homer Walter St. Francis on January 19, 1935 in Swanton, Franklin County, Vermont.
