    Looking for tribal records that may include the family name: Coulombe, or Colombe.
    The family name may be listed as Dove.
    Unofficial information indicates that I should be looking at the Abenaki —- in the Quebec province.

  2. In the RCAF there was a squadron, 421, which used the McColl-Frontenac oil company’s Red Indian emblem from the early part of the 20th century. I served on 421, in France, from 1958 until 1961. One of my mates has passed away and at the eulogy in a few days the person giving the talk would like to be able to reference the tribe displayed on our emblem.
    Would anyone know the tribe’s name?
