FN: Pierre Jerome
Pierre Jerome, came to Fort Carlton, Saskatchewan in 1769 from Montreal, Canada. He died 28 Nov 1821 at Fort Carlton and his death is recorded in Hudson Bay records kept by J. P. Pruden, the Factor of Fort Carlton. No record can be found of a marriage of Pierre Jerome but reference is made to a woman, Virginia, the mother of Martin, and it is likely that the St. Matthe named is used to indicate that Martin is "metis" or of mixed blood.

Andre Jerome's grandmother was Cree Indian from the vicinity of Fort Carlton, Saskatchewan and not Chippewa as most of the Turtle Mountain Indians claim to be.
