Hi Mark, Here is what I was able to find. Joshua Robb came to the US Nov 8, 1906 alone. His family, Bathia age22, Bathia age 3, Winifred age 2 and Joshua, infant, with an Ann Robb age 28 came February 15, 1907. (Perhaps Ann is a sister to Joshua, Sr.?) In the 1940 census, Joshua is living and working in a hotel in Maine. However, Bathia is living in Massachusetts, living with her is her daughter Bathia, her husband Theodore Chambers and their children, Natalie age 9 and Nancy age 6. I did not find a date or place of death for Joshua,Sr. but I did find the following.
