Thanks Michelle for the information. His age fits perfectly with my records, so I will definitely pursue that connection. Where were you looking that the Lowell Telegram achive? If it is available online, can you tell me where to find it? Also, my family claimed to be from Trois-Rivières also, but I found out that we were fromthe village of St. Ours in Richelieu County which is sometimes referred to as the region of Trois-Rivières. I visited St. Ours this summer.There's only one Robillard who lives there now but he says his family has lived there for generations. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to communicate directly.
