Grandparents
   
Daughter Julie Gonville (1/2 Kansa, 1/2 Osage) (b. 1811?) m. Louis Pappan (1/2 French, 1/2 Potawatomie) (b. 1815 in St. Louis, Missouri), a French fur trader. Pappan brothers started the Pappan Ferry across the Kaw (Ks) River in 1842. 

Oftentimes; Julie Gonville Pappan is often confused with Julia Rover Roy Lessert, who is an entirely different person.  At least 4, even possibly 5 children that are claimed to be the children of Julie Roy Lessert are actually the children of Me-Ho-Yah/Me-Ha-Ja and Julie Gonville, the descendants of these mothers are blood relatives (cousins) to Vice President Charles Curtis.  At this point bloodlines for both Lessert and Roy appear to be only French with no other connections to Native American tribes. Other children by Clement Lessert Sr with Julie Rover Roy Lessert are not related to Vice-President Charles Curtis.  No, the Louis Joseph Pappan who Julie Roy Lessert remarried after the death of Clement Lessert Sr is not the same Louis Pappan who was married to Julie Gonville Pappan;
