I am the great-granddaughter of Jeannette Robidoux Fitch.I am trying to find more information on her, her sisters, and her parents, and I am not having much luck on Ancestry.com.We don't have much in the way of family records, and I am new at this type of research, so any and all help would be greatly appreciated.We THINK this is how the Robidoux family in question spelled their last name, although we may be wrong about that.
According to the 1920 US census, Jeannette lived in NY with her husband, Walter Burnham Fitch, Jeannette was born in Michigan, and her parents were both French Canadians.
Her husband Walter died as the result of a car accident, I believe in 1937.Her only child, Rex Burnham Fitch Sr, was born later in 1920 and is my grandfather.Sadly, he passed away in 1995.
One of my aunts told me that Jeannette had two sisters, Emily and Georgette.I don't think Georgette ever married; in her old age, "Aunt Georgie" lived with my grandparents.
Emily, on the other hand, had at least one child.I do not know her husband's name, but her daughter, Doree, was my grandfather's first cousin.I believe Doree was born in 1910.She is no longer living.
Doree had several husbands, and she kept the last name, Brown, of the best of the lot.Her daughter, born circa 1930, went by the name of Audrey Brown, even though one of her mother's other husbands was her biological father.Audrey never married, and I believe she died several years ago in CT.
If anyone out there has any info on these three sisters or their parents, PLEASE let me know!Thank you so much!
