When you are talking about the Robidoux famillies, it make’s me very proud.I have been working on this family for quite a while, I am not blood related to them, they are my in-laws but their history are so interesting, espiecially for the U.S.A.Could you believe that the are over 60, ways to pronounce Robidoux, unbelievable.
I have no idea were you took your information about a Joseph Robidoux & Julie Desjarlais.The one that was married to Julie Desjarlais in Cahokia, on October 14 1815, his name was Pierre-Isidore (Isadora) Robidoux, son of Joseph Robidoux in Laprairie New-France in 1750 and married in the town of St.Louis, Missouri to Catherine Rolet in 1796 in St.Louis.She was the daughther of Michel & Jeanne-Marguerite Legrain, from France.By the way, her father in-laws Joseph Robidoux, became a prosperous merchant.
Angélique Vaudry, was the second wife of Joseph and also the brother of the A/M Pierre-Isidore Robidoux.The first spouse of Joseph was Eugénie Delisle, b. 1782 in St.Louis and d. 1801 in the same town.In my notes I have a son by the name Joseph (Indian Joe) Robidoux, born in 1801, my believe his that she died soon after giving birth to her son.
Joseph Robidoux b. August 5, 1784 in St.Louis, took has a wife Angélique Vaudry in St.Louis, on Agust 1814.She give brth to 8 children, 6 sons and two daugther.Don’t you ever forget that Joseph was the founder of St.Joseph, Missouri, he was also a great fur traders having work for Monsieur Astor of the american Fur Company, he was so good that his boss give him a year of vacation from thejob telling him to stay in St.Louis.It seems that he had made to much proffit for himself, Joseph and his brothers were well known in the middle west, that his why I like to call them (The Wild Bunch)
