From: (Loretta Sheshequin)

I was just doing a Google search and came across your webpages and the lovely Sheshequin Township.  I just had to email you to tell you how tickled I was to discover a geographic location carrying my name.  Indeed the derivative is correct - I am a Cree woman and take great pride in carrying "a ceremonial rattle".
