  • Notes 
    • - John was married at Notre Dame Church in Ogdensubrg May 22, 1897. The married is recorded using the French names of Emilien Robillard and Ida Lammoureux (L'amore is french for love) rather than John Robillard and Ida Lovely. Ida's father George, whom their first son was named after, attended her wedding. He also attended the wedding of John's sister to Rudolph Cayen.

      - 1900 census: John Robillard, 24, b. Aug, 1875, Canada, is residing fourth ward, Ogdensburg, with wife Ida, 22, and son George, 2.

      - 1920: John resides in Massena with wife Ida. father's name: Millien. He is a butcher in a Massena shop. He's 44; Ida is 41, George is still with them at age 21 with his apparent wife Silma, 22. Also with them is his father, Millien, 77. When Millien died in 1924, John was still at Massena.

      - Jan. 2, 1930, Massena: John Robillard, 56, proprietor of a meat market and grocery store at 181 Center St., died suddenly Thursday afternoon. He and Mrs. Robillard and two grandcchildren, Catherine, 9, and Donald, 8, had been at the store and Mrs. Robillard with the two children started for the home at 9 Howard St., to see about the fires. When they were at the corner of East Orvis St. and Parker Ave., the machine ran out of gasoline and the little boy was sent after some. Nathan Jacobs drove by a short time later and noticed Mr. Rolbillard sitting in the driver's seat, bleeding profusely from the head. He summoned the police dpeartment and he was taken to a doctor. He had evidently suffered a hemorrhage. For the past year. Mr. Robillard had not been in very good health but ate a hearty dinner Thursday and was feeling unusually well. He was born in Canada Sept. 21, 1873, and while a small boy came to the U.S. He married Miss Edith Lovely, a native of Ogdensburg, and for several years they lived in that city, later moving to Waddington and 15 years ago to Masssena. Surviving are his wife, one son, George, two grandchildren; three sisters, Mrs. George Hynes, Mrs. Henry Baker and Mrs. O. V. Touron of Ogdensburg; two brothers, Joseph of Montreal and Henry of Ogdensburg. Funeral services were held at 10 Saturday. In the spring he will be buried in Ogdensburg. (He was buried in Notre Dame Cemetery, as was Ida, and her father George, in adjacent plots.)

      - E-mail June, 2009: Emilien Robillard Sr., Philomena's father, stood for her at her wedding to Rudolph Cayen, along with George Lamoureux. George Lamoureux also stood for another Robillard wedding, that of John to his daughter, Ida Lamoureux (Lovely.) George and Emilien, the two older fathers, were witnesses for both weddings: that of Philomena and Rodolphe (2 Jan 1897) and that of John and Ida Lamoureux (22 May 1897). Also, John is buried with Ida and her father in ND Cemetery - Old cem., Range 3, Lot 16. I would check that grave! Maybe the mystery is that Philomena is buried with her brother and his wife and her father!
