As a young man, George travelled to Ontario and remained there for as much as couple of years. In June 1882, he was present at the wedding of his cousin Vercheres GREGOIRE in Port Severn, Ontario.He then apprarently returned to Quebec.

Shortly after their wedding, George and Malvina travelled to Ontario for a time. In June 1884, they were in Midland to act as godparents to George's cousin William ARBOUR. In 1887, a George ARBOURwas farming part of Concession 13, Lot 12,between Waubaushene and Port Severn. Perhaps he is our George, as there are not known to be any others in that area at this time.

By the middle of 1887, the young couple had returned to Quebec and seem to have stayed there for quite a while this time. They became godparents to nephew Philibert RIVET in June 1887 at St-Emelie-de-l'Energie. By April 1891, George and Malvina were known to be living in Quebec during the Census. That year George was reportedly a farmer living in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie. After this, George and Malvina again became godparents: to his cousin's daughter Anna ARBOUR in September 1891 and to his cousin's son Francois COUTU in January 1901, both in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie.

In April 1901, during the Census of that year, George and Malvina still lived in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie. They owned a four-room house plus three outbuildings on one-acre of the 2nd Range, JolietteCanton. George was reported to be a journeyman who earned $300 that year. George and Malvina are thought to have had no children of their own. No births have been connected to them. However, both in the 1891 Census and in the 1901 Census, they were recorded with niece Domitille TALBOT, the daughter of Malvina's sister Marie-Louise PARENT and her husband Narcisse TALBOT. They seem to have adopted the girl.

The story of the girl's parents is somewhat unclear. Marie-Louise and Narcisse appear to have married in about 1883. Their daughter Marie TALBOT was born on 16 October 1884 in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie and baptised there on 18 October 1884. Marie's stillborn twin was also born there on the 16th; this baby was buried on 20 October 1884. One year later, on 27 October 1885, Domitille TALBOT was bornalthough her baptismal record has not yet been located. Young Marie TALBOT must havenot been a healthy child as she died in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie just three years later on 19 December 1883 and was buried there on 23 December 1887. Perhaps it was shortly after this that Marie-Louise and/or Narcisse passed away - although they were not buried in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie - and Domitille came under the care of her Uncle George and Aunt Malvina. The complete explanation for their situation may never be known.

In later years, George and Malvina again returned to the baptismal font at St-Emelie-de-l'Energie to hold more godchildren: George's cousin Jeanne Domitille MORIN in May 1904 and George's cousin Georges Gerald LASALLE in August 1912.

As a young man, Joseph worked as a journeyman. Later in his life he became a blacksmith like his father before him. Throughout all their years, he and his family lived in Joliette City. In 1901, the family lived at 50 Arthemise Street, where they rented a five-room house on ¼ acre. Joseph earned $400 that year.

By the Census of 1901, Olivier seems to have passed away. His family still lived in Oka and still operated the general store that he founded. They owned a 10-room house on 1/2 acre with 2 outbuildings. His widow and eldest three daughtersran the store, which was located next door to the local Catholic Church, which in turn was next door to the local schoolhouse.

Elide was about 14-years old when she moved with her family from Quebec to Ontario. As a young woman, Elide became godmother to three children in Midland: cousin Oscar ARBOUR in July 1888, nephew Omer RIVET in June 1890, and cousin's daughter Ethel BOURDON in August 1891. She also witnessed her brother William's marriage in April 1891 in Waubaushene.

After their wedding, Elide and Bert settled in Waubaushene, where they had five children, three daughters and two sons. They also served as godparents to nephew Louis ARBOUR in January 1907 and toniece Emilie ARBOUR in March 1907, both inMidland. In 1901, the young family with two small children was living in a four-room house on ¼ acre of Concession 10, Lot 10, in Waubaushene. Bert earned $270 that year at the mill. While Elide and Bert did have five children, they seem tohave had just a lone granddaughter who married. As a result, the BRODEUR name ended on this line.

From his cousin Bud O'REILLY via email on 25 Mar 2008: I assume his army training was in Saskatchewan where they would meet and fall in love. They moved to Port Robinson, about 5 miles north of Welland, Ontario, on the Welland Canal, justdown the road from his sister Mae Jalbert and across the road from his cousin Laura (Gouin) O'Reilly, my mother. I have a picture of him in his army uniform taken beside our house in Port Robinson. Theresa Arbour lived with Roy Ladouceur across the Canal lift bridge a few yards down the road. Alphage Arbour (Alf lived with wife Marjorie (Karr) across the road from Wilf. . . . We were always taught to address my mother's cousins as Uncle Wilf, Aunt Alice, Aunt Mae, and Uncle Wee (Mae's husband Wilson Jalbert). The Arbours and their kin always had interesting nick-names such as Wee, Pep, Nazz, etc.

He seems to have lived at a boys' school during the 1911 Census taken in June of that year. --> From Denis ARBOUR via email on 25 Nov 2009: I am quite sure it's the "Collège de L'Assomption." Back then, a "collège" was a high-school administered by a religious order. The students were permanent residents and had to obey very strict rules and were on a very tight schedule.

Helen Arbour was born on 16 August 1920, in St Louis, Michigan, as Helen Palko. She was born to two immigrants who both came here through Ellis Island from Czechoslovakia. Her father was Michael Palko, born in Prague, CZ, on 24 August 1885 (died January 1963), and her mother was Appolonia Pavoliç, born in Prague, CZ, on 11 January 1899 (died 12 January 1990). Her parents lived on their 40-acre farm until both of them passed away. Helen lived at the farm from the time she was12. Prior to that, the family lived in a multitude of places. Helen had several siblings. When the war came, she became a "Rosie the Riveter". She worked at the Willow Run plant building the B-24J Liberator, a bomber, from 1941 until 1944.

In 1871, Charles and Odile lived a few miles away from St Come in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie, along with many of his brothers. The family was still there in 1881, in 1891, and in 1901. In 1886, Charles received a Land Grant for property in Joliette County from the Canadian Government. The farmer and his wife eventually had 11 children, six daughters and five sons. The family of seven of them was listed in the 1891 Census in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie, with son William living next door. In 1901, they owned a five-room house plus three outbuildings on 303 acres, next door to his brother Joseph ARBOUR and not too far away from their son William ARBOUR. Charles and Odile held quite the position of honor within their family, as evidenced by the fact that they were chosen to become godparents ten times. Their godchildren were nephew Alphonse ARBOUR in November 1868, nephew Charles HOULE in August 1870, niece Marie ARBOUR in July 1872, nephew Severe LASALLE in October 1873, niece Marie-Diana ARBOUR in May 1882, grandson Hermenegilde ARBOUR in July 1898, great-nephew Edouard BEAUDOIN in February 1906, granddaughter Rosianne ARBOUR in July 1908, grandson Hermenegilde ARBOUR in December 1908, and grandsonAvila ARBOUR in May 1909. Sadly, Charles was also witness to four funerals, including one for a godson: niece Exerine ARBOUR died in June 1884, greatnieces Anna and Rosianne ARBOUR died in February 1897, and grandson and godson Hermenegilde ARBOUR died in August 1898.

In 1901, Charles still lived with his parents in Waubaushene. The teenager earned $154 that year at the mill. In January 1903, he witnessed his brother Baptiste's wedding in Victoria Harbour. In October 1906, he witnessed his sister Delia's wedding, also in Victoria Harbour.

Charles and Lina had a son, Edward, who was born in Victoria Harbour. They also seem to have taken in a son of the family, who became known as Uncle Fred. Later, the family moved to northern Ontario and settled in the North Bay area in 1929.

Charles lived at 363 Aberdeen Avenue at the time of his death in 1966. He died in a local hospital as the result of a heart attack following a lengthy illness. While he actually attended the Pro-Cathedral of the Assomption Church, he was buried in St Mary's Cemetery in North Bay. Lina predeceased him at some point.

As a young woman, Etta stood witness at the weddings of three of her brothers: Louis married inSeptember 1932, Lloyd married in November 1934, and Theo married in June 1941. Just seven months later, Etta married for herself.

Joseph and Alphonsine had nine children, three daughters and six sons, three of whom died in infancy. They also became godparents to his cousin Regina HOULE, who was baptised in May 1880 at St-Emelie-de-l'Energie. While living in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie, Joseph toiled as a farmer. As his parents' only child, he became the caretaker of their property, as well as his own. In 1886, Joseph receiveda Land Grant from the Canadian Government for some property in Joliette County, but the details are unknown. One day while working, Joseph decided that there must be a more successful life elsewhere.So following in the many footsteps of ARBOURs before him, he travelled across the country and became a lumberer in Ontario. In the winter of 1898-1899, Joseph went to Northern Ontario to work and found a lovely spot on Lake Nipissing. He then saved his money in order to bring his family and his parents there. So in the spring of 1899, the whole group arrived on the train in Verner, Ontario; they then continued on to Lavigne, Ontario. In 1901, the family was indeed found living in MacPherson Township, Ontario, which is where the community of Lavigne is located within Nipissing District. That year, Joseph and his three eldest surviving sons worked their farm.

Narcisse was about nine-years old when he moved with his family from Quebec to Ontario. After their wedding, Narcisse and Mary Jane settled in Waubaushene, where their first two children were born. They then moved to Victoria Harbour in about 1898. In 1901, the family owned a three-room house on ¼ acre of Concession 7, Lot W13, in Victoria Harbour. Narcisse earned $320 that year at the mill. The couple eventually shared a family of five children, two daughters and three sons,and were also godparents to five nieces and nephews: Norman ARBOUR in Midland in March 1897, Mary Ann RIVET in Midland in April 1897, Louis Herbert ARBOUR in Midland in February 1908, Emma ARBOUR in Waubaushene in July 1908, and Lloyd ARBOURin Midland in May 1910. Between the Census of April 1901 and the birth of their daughter in December 1904, Narcisse became a butcher. It is believed that he ran the butcher shop which was located adjacted to the grocery store owned by the BRODEUR family on Richard Street in Victoria Harbour, near St Mary's Church. Narcisse later took his son Isadore out of school at a young age so he could work in the shop, increasing production and affording his siblings the opportunity for aneducation. Mary Jane was just 44-years old when she died at their home in Victoria Harbour. Son Isadore forever remembered his mother with only love and admiration. However, Narcisse was not always known to be such a faithful family man, although dear Mary Jane never knew this. Sometime after Mary Jane's death, Narcisse remarried to a woman named Philomene LORMAND, who was a sister to Delia, who married Narcisse's brother Thomas. She was also a sister to John, who married Narcisse's cousin Delia. Narcisse and Philomene then had a daughter of their own, who was born in 1925.

Note: From son Allan ARBOUR (via Linda CHARRON on 10 Oct 2005): Grandpa was a hockey player. He played hockey for Victoria Harbour, Midland, Westinghouse in Hamilton, and Toronto Stockyards. He came from a hockey family. His brother Armosplayed on the Montreal Canadians Stanley Cup winning team in 1916. He also had cousins that played professional hockey. While living in Hamilton, he was in aserious car accident, and suffered head injuries. He had to have a metal plate inserted in his head. That ended his hockey career. He was also a good ball player in his day. He used to enjoy going down to the ball field and watch the ball games. He married Theresa Bourrie on 28 December 1936, They had 4 children Mary Jane, Allan, Eva, and Lucille. Grandpa worked in the family Butcher Shop until it was sold. He was sick and had suffered a heart attack at a very early age. He went to work at a butcher shop in Waubaushene until he became very ill. Grandpa passed away 21 December 1967. It was unfortunate that you weren't old enough to know Grandpa. He spoke French fluently and would often sing little french songs. He also liked playing cards. He was a teaser and such a likeable person, he wasloved by everyone. He is sadly missed and fondly remembered.

Note: On 01 Oct 1940, Pamela was recorded at a "border crossing" in Erie, PA. She was recorded as a Seaman aboard the SS Midland Prince and was only in Erie for shore leave. Seems a little strangefor her to be a seaman. Perhaps she was just on a pleasure cruise and did not truly work aboard the ship. She was also noted to be 5'8" tall with a dark complexion, brown hair, and brown eyes. --> Appears that Pamela and Ted did indeed sail for vacation, as he was listed with the same remarks. Was is what is commonly known today as a working vacation? (ha, ha)

Note: On 19 Mar 1929, Gilbert travelled to the US via the port of Niagara Falls, NY. He claimed he was going to become a permanent resident in the US but had not thought further than Niagara Falls.

Note: Orval suffered a small setback at age three when he had polio, which left him somewhat handicapped with a partially lame arm and a lame foot. However, he overcame these handicaps and worked for 21 years at the Beck Lumber Company inPenetanguishene, until they closed down. He then went to live with his parents on their farm and worked there until his retirement.

Note: The farmer and his wife had eight children, six daughters and two sons, all seemingly born in L'Assomption County. Louis and Elizabeth were found in L'Assomption Parish in 1871 and in 1881. In 1881, they were recorded with their spinster daughter, Cesarine, and a boarder, Francois BROUILLET. Also recorded with them were Joseph ARBOUR, age 13, and Edouard ARBOUR, age 10. Perhaps these children were their grandchildren. Elizabeth was already 68-years old and would have been too old to have borne them herself. Perhaps they were adopted. It is unknown when or where Louis and Elizabeth died; however, the couple has not been located in the 1891 Census so perhaps they had passed away by then.
