Lagimodière is noted both as the grandfather of Métis leader Louis Riel, and as the husband of Marie-Anne Gaboury, the first woman of European descent to travel to and settle in the Canadian west. The Lagimodières were also, in 1812, the first settlers at the Red River Colony near modern Winnipeg, Manitoba.
