For those interested: Exilda (Chabot) Jarry seems to have remarried after the death of her husband, Hormidas.According to the 1900 Census, it would appear that she married Samuel Robida (Rabida, Robideau) in 1896.A marriage certificate seems to varify this, although her name is translated as "Jabotte", not "Chabot".Living with them in 1900 were Samuel's son,George, from a previous marriage and 2 of her children, Remi and Regina Jarry. She had a few other children who would have been adults and may have been married by 1900.
Exilda's son, Hormidas Joseph (age 5), was living elsewhere perhaps for financial and/or emotional reasons.Having given birth to him just one month after the tragic drowning of her husband, perhaps the care of a very young child at that stage in her life was unbearable. It appears that young Hormidas was adopted and raised by a man named Olivier Lemaire, as he was living with him in Quebec in 1910.Olivier Lemaire may have been a relative since Samuel's mother has the maiden name Lemaire.
St. Joseph Cemetery in Biddeford, ME has a record for Samuel Robida's death and lists his wife as "Marie Jarry".Exilda was born MARIE-Exilda Chabot.However, the circumstances of her death still elude us.
