* Immigration:1872 from Canada to USA
* Note:Melina could actually be the baby girl baptised as Adrianna. Nothing is known of Melina's baptism and nothing is known of Adrianna after her baptism.

Melina and Eusebe became godparents to Melina's sister Anne in November 1875 at St-Charles-de-Borromèe Church in Joliette City.

By June 1900, Melina had given birth to 9 children, 7 of whom were still living. By April 1910, Melina had given birth to 10 children, 8 of whom were still living.

Not sure who the Melina is who passed away in 1907, but it appears as though ours was still living.

* Medical Information:Although a blood clot final ended her life, 12 days before her death she suffered ileus, which was then complicated by miscarriage.
* Note: On 20 October 1898, 11-year old Delia was confirmed into the Catholic Church by Reverend Paul BURCHES, Archbishop of Montreal, while in Waubaushene. In August 1905, Delia and her future husband, John LORMAND, witnessed the wedding ofDelia's cousin Thomas ARBOUR and John's sister Delia LORMAND in Victoria Harbour. Perhaps this is how they met. After their wedding, Delia and John set up house in Victoria Harbour and appear to have remained there for the rest of their lives. Beginning just one month after the birth of their eldest child, they became godparents to three family youngstersin Midland: niece Adeline ARBOUR in October 1907, nephew Stanley BOURDON in February 1908, and niece Flora ARBOUR in July 1908.Delia and John also had nine children of their own. Delia tragically died in St Andrew's Hospital in Midland after childbirth in 1924. A horrible family story alludes to the fact that John was not a kind man and frequently beat his wife. Onthis particular occasion, Johnreportedly kicked Delia, causing severe injuries and a premature birth. This tale is confirmed with the information received in her death registration certificate. While Delia's life was eventually ended by a bloodclot, 12 days earlier she suffered ileus, which is severe abdominal trauma. There is no doubt that this was caused by John kicking her. How he could do such a thing is a complete mystery. Delia's injuries were further complicated by what thedoctors termed a "miscarriage" although her baby girl was born alive. In any event, the young mother was buried in Victoria Harbour in St Mary's Cemetery, next to her baby daughter and beside her mother. John later found a stepmother for theirchildren. However, Marguerite GIROUX also had a reputation among the family for not being very well-liked.

She had 9 children

* Medical Information:He suffered abdominal injuries when he dove into the Georgian Bay off the government dock across from his parents' house. He died shortly thereafter.
* Note: Young Reggie tragically died as the result of injuries suffered while swimming in the Georgian Bay shortly before his 14th birthday. He had been swimming at the Waubaushene slip, across from his parents' house, off the government dock. He dove in and hit a rock, causing severe internal injuries. The young man languished in pain as he did not die immediately but lived for a day. 
ARBOUR Reginald Napoleon (30878I)
 
59
* Medical Information:He suffered from heart problems for about 3 months before his death. His dropsy was brought about by heart failure.
* Note:Louis and Sidonie added 13 children to their family, four daughters and nine sons, all of whom were born in Joliette County. While their first child was born in Joliette City in 1859, by the year 1870, the family was part of the brandnew St-Emelie-de-l'Energie Parish located further north in Joliette County. In 1871, Louis was a farmer in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie, along with many of his brothers. The family was still living there in 1881. Louis and Sidonie also became the godparents of four children while living in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie: niece Emelie HOULE in May 1877, nephew Martial ARBOUR in August 1879, niece Albina LASALLE in October 1881, and grandson Joseph RIVET in January 1886.

From the 1860s through the 1880s, Louis saw his siblings slowly leave Joliette County in search of better opportunities elsewhere. Younger sister Zoe and her family migrated to Ontario in about 1867.Younger brother Xavier and his family, along with younger brother Basile, migrated to Ontario in about 1868. Lastly, younger brother Magloire followed them in about 1883.

Sometime thereafter, this branch of the ARBOUR family made the big move to the Province of Ontario and settled in Simcoe County. The exact date of their move has yet to be determined, although it wasmost likely around spring 1886. In January1886, Louis and Sidonie served as godparents to their grandson in St-Emelie-de-l'Energie. Their next appearance was in Midland, Ontario, as godparents for their niece Mary Louise ARBOUR in July 1886.

Once in Ontario, Louis and Sidonie settled in Waubaushene to begin employment with the Georgian Bay Lumber Company. They then served as godparents to several additional family youngsters: great-nephew Alphonse JEAN in June 1887, granddaughter Maria Ava ARBOUR in January 1892, and grandson Armos ARBOUR in January 1895, all baptised in Midland.

In 1890, Louis was a tenant farmer on Concession 10, Lot 10, in Waubaushene. The 1891 Census also shows them living in Waubaushene.

Soon after Sidonie's death, Louis appears to have abandoned his farming efforts and moved into town. By April 1901, widowed and living with his three youngest sons, Louis owned a four-room house withan outbuilding on ¼ acre of Concession 10,Lot 10, in the town of Waubaushene. He earned $275 that year at the mill. By May 1911, Louis and son Alexander lived with daughter Elide and family.

Bio from Facebook on 11 April 2010:
11 April 1832 -- Louis-Edmund ARBOUR was one of the children of Jean-Baptiste ARBOUR and Marie-Emelie DORVAL -- our magnificent couple who were parents to 20 children. Born in Joliette City, QC, Louis was the 4th child and 2nd son of Jean-Baptiste and Emelie's brood. Like many generations of ARBOURs before him, Louis became a farmer. The 26-year old farmer married 17-year old Sidonie ETHIER on 07March 1859, in Joliette City. Louis and Sidonie added 13 children to their family, 4daughters and 9 sons, all of whom were born in Joliette County. While their first child was born in Joliette City in 1859, by the year 1870, the family was part of the brand new Ste-Emelie-de-l'Energie Parish located further north in JolietteCounty. In 1871, Louis was a farmer in Ste-Emelie, along with many of his brothers. The family was still living there in 1881. From the 1860s through the 1880s, Louis saw his siblings slowly left Joliette County in search of better opportunities elsewhere. Younger sisterZoe and her family migrated to Ontario in about 1867. Younger brother Xavier and his family, along with younger brother Basile, migrated to Ontario in about 1868. Lastly, younger brother Magloire followed them inabout 1883.

The 1891 Census also shows them living in Waubaushene. Sidonie then died in Waubaushene on 28 January 1899. Soon after Sidonie's death, Louis appears to have abandoned his farming efforts and moved into town. By April 1901, widowed and living with his 3 youngest sons, Louis owned a 4-room house with an outbuilding on ¼ acre of Concession 10, Lot 10, in the town of Waubaushene. He earned $275 that year at the mill. By May 1911, Louis and son Alexander lived with daughter Elide and family. Louis ultimately died from dropsy on 03 April 1916. However, he hadsuffered from heart problems for about 3 months before his death and his dropsy was brought about by heart failure. Louis and Sidonie can claim 61 grandchildren and a staggering 141 great-grandchildren! Who volunteers to count the next generation?

* Medical Information:Mildred died during the influenza epidemic of 1918. She was pregnant at the time.
* Note: After their wedding, Mildred and Prosper established their home in Penetanguishene, where they seem to have lived for the rest of their lives. In June 1908, the month their first daughter wasborn, they became godparents to Mildred's younger sister Zita in Penetanguishene. The next day their little daughter sadly died. Mildred and Prosper had eight daughters and one son before her untimely death in 1918 at the age of 30, perhaps as the result of childbirth.
* She had 9 children

* Medical Information:She suffered from placenta previa during pregnancy, which caused severe bleeding and during which medical science could not help her in 1908.
* Note:In the ARBOUR-DAME household, only French was spoken. This remained true until after Lucy's death. When Edward married Margaret, she didn't know French and demanded that everyone speak English. During their short life together, Lucy and Edward were devoted to each other. Upon her premature death, Edward was completely devastated.
___

No record of Lucy's death can be found. However, there seems to be little question among the family that she died while living in Hoosick Falls. One explanation for this may be that the family was known for being very poor. Perhaps they could not afford a tombstone and that she was not "important" enough for an obituary. However, a death certificate should still have been issued regardless of hercircumstances. --> No longer true! A death certificate was uncovered in early 2005 by descendant Kathleen (DAME) FIERRO.

According to the age at time of death recorded on Lucy's death certificate, she would have been born 02 June 1876, not 22 June.She had 4 children

It is unknown if Jennie ever married or had children. --> New info suggests that Jennie married Frederick James HINES. No further info can be found. --> Stay tuned . . .

On 29 May 1924, Jennie travelled to the US via Buffalo, NY. She intended to visit her fiance Frederick J. HINES, 9213 Edmond Ave, Cleveland, OH. She was noted as being 5'2" with a ruddy complexion, brown hair, and brown eyes. She had $25 in her pocket.

* Birth:6 APR 1857 in Perce, Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec, Canada
* Death:16 MAR 1936 in Cannes-de-Roches, Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec, Canada
* Occupation:Fisher (1881); Laborer (1891); Fisher (1901, 1911); Farmer (1911)

* Baptism:4 MAY 1857 St-Michel Catholic Church in Perce, Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec, Canada
* Event:Godparents Francois LAFLAMME and Francoise LAFLAMME
* Note:Who is this Charles and how does he connect to the ARBOUR Tree?

From Denis ARBOUR on 19 Jul 2007: I think finding who Charles' parents will be an almost impossible task . . .

From his baptism record: "Le quatre mai mil huit cent cinquante sept, nous prêtre soussigné avons baptisé sous conditions Charles né le six avril dernier de parents inconnus. Parrain François Laflamme, Marraine Françoise Laflamme qui n'ont su signer." OR "On the 4th of May 1857, I, the undersigned priest, have conditionally baptised Charles born on the 6th of April to unknown parents. Godfather François Laflamme, godmother Françoise Laflamme who were not able to sign."

Note: When one is baptised as illegitimate, he (or she) is usually not "attached" to anyone. The parents are often recorded as "unknown" or "illegitimate" even tough the priest knows who they are. The father is sometimes recorded as Joseph when his real name is unknown.

From Denis ARBOUR on 20 Jul 2007: Why CASSIDY and ARBOUR? Maybe, after all, Charles' illegitimate mother is actually the Charlotte MORIN who married Isaac CASSIDY and his illegitimate father is an ARBOUR. Or, maybe, Charles was adopted by anARBOUR family.

HELD FOR STEALING WATCH -- Edward Arbour Was Arrested As He Left Train In This City
Word was received this morning by the local police from Deputy Sheriff Woodworth of Mechanicville that a man by the name of Edward Arbour was wanted in that place for grand larceny. He was due here on the train from the west at 10 o'clock and Captain Parrow and Officer Jones were at the station and took him into custody as he got off. It is alleged that Arbour stole a gold watch valued at $60 from John Jackson in the Commercial house at Mechanicville. Arbour denied the charge when questioned at the police station, but was held pending action by the Mechanicville authorities. The watch has notbeen recovered. It was plain gold with the name "John Jackson" engraved inside the case.

In the 1900 Census, 10 of Moise and Minnie's 12 children were still living.

In the 1910 Census, Moise was recorded as 73, which makes him born in about 1837. Also, Minnie had reportedly given birth to 12 children, only 8 of whom were still alive.

By the time of the 1920 Census, Moise had died and Minnie had several of her adult children living with her -- Rose, Albert, and Minnie Eva -- as well as 2 grandchildren -- Minnie Eva's son Edward NADEAU and Amelia's daughter Elizabeth WELLS. This Census also erroneously reports that the family migrated in 1882, which is impossible, as they were listed in the 1880 Census in Vermont.

02 May 1908 -- Born in Pownal, Vermont, Harold John ARBOUR was the younger of 2 children born to cotton mill worker, liveryman, and farmer John Adelard ARBOUR and his wife Rebecca GOWER. Harold grew up in Pownal and appears to have applied himself in school, where he made the honor roll. On 24 June 1926, he graduated from Williamstown High School and shortly thereafter became employed by the Irving Bank Trust Company in New York City. The following year in August 1927, Harold entered Allen's School of Commerce in Troy, NY, where he took a 2-year commercial teachers course. After graduation hefound employment as a Business College Teacher, where he worked during the taking of the 1930 Census. In September 1935, Harold seems to have returned to Schenectady, NY, where he was engaged by the Spencer Business School as head of the secretarial department for the ensuing year. He held this position at least through the 1939-1940 school year. Shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Harold felt his call to duty. In February 1942, he enlisted in the US Coast Guard, then under US Navy supervision, at the Albany, NY, recruiting station. Throughout his stint in the Coast Guard, Harold served in CurtisBay, MD; New London, CT; Groton, CT; Palm Beach, FL; West Palm Beach, FL; and Manhattan Beach, NY. At the time of his departure from the Coast Guard in October 1945, Harold received an honorable discharge. Newspapers further noted that priorto the war, he served as Assistant Principal of Spencer Business School in Schenectady. Utilizing these skills, he taught shorthand and typing while in the service. He trained about 250 men and 2,000 women - the men for immediate sea duty and the women each replacing a man on shore duty. At the time of his separation, Harold had no plans for his immediate future. By April 1947, though, Harold seems to have found work - this time in Roanoke, VA, as teacher and principal of the School of Secretarial Science of the National Business College. The following June he enlisted in the Navy Reserve at Norfolk, VA, for a term of 4 years. By April 1956, Harold was an instructor at Hollins College in Roanoke - a position he heldfor 15 years. Haroldfinally retired in 1970 and returned home to Pownal. In May 1984, he was elected historian at the local American Legion Post. Shortly after this, Harold seems to have fallen ill. He died in Bennington, VT, of congestive heart failure on 21 December 1985. He was buried in the North Pownal Cemetery in Pownal.

From Monica LOZO via message board on 26 Jul 2009: I am researching my family history and found that Elisabeth Arbour was married to my g-great grandfather John Lozo. In a 1910 Census I have shows they are married and Elisabeth's two sons are on the census Harry Arbour, age 8, Henry Arbour, age 6. Elisabeth is on John's death certificate as his wife and John is on Elisabeth's death certificate asher husband. Elisabeth is John's second wife, his first wife, Louise Rindeau, died. She was his first wife and the mother of my great-grandfather Samuel Lozo. Samuel was the father of Laurance Lozo Sr my grandfather. Laurance Lozo Sr was the father of Laurance Lozo Jr my father.

From Monica LOZO via message board on 26 Jul 2009: I have posted some information for you on a lost Hoosick Falls Family. Elisabeth Arbour was married to my g-great grandfather. I don't know if they had any children together as I am still searching this information myself. Elisabeth was much younger than my g-great grandfather but the 1910 Census I have shows Elisabeth's two sons Harry and Henry 8 & 6 yrs old. It also shows that I had 2 great Aunts that were living in the household at the time, Nora age 10, and Esther age 20 both Lozos. I have been reviewing some of your postings and you havea lot of names that are also in my family. I do know that my g-great grandfather who was married to Elisabeth was also from Canada, not sure what part as of yet still going through some papers. I hope this helps you. If I can be of any help please email me at minniehaha@comcast.net.

From Monica LOZO via email on 28 Jul 2009: How are you related to Elizabeth Arbour? Elizabeth's last name Arbour, is that from a former marriage? And do you know who she was married to before? According to the information I have on the 1910 census, it shows John and Elizabeth married and four others living in the household. Nora Lozo, age 10, Harry Arbour, age 8, Henry Arbour, age 6 and Esthur Lozo, age 20. There is no information on a Mary B. (Lozo) born sometime around Mar 1900. So I would presume that Nora, was from John's first wife Louise, not Elizabeth since Harry and Henry are younger with the Last name Arbour on the census. I remember hearing the name Arbour on my fathers side of the family when I was growing up and that's about all. My father's (Lawrence Lozo, Jr.) mother (Doris Charbonneau) died when he was five years old, and he and his brother Ralph were put in a orphanage (I believe it was St Joseph's) sometime after she died (15 November 1934) she is buried in the Belleview, Adams, MA cemetery; next to my g-grandmother (Delia Lozo) Delia's surname was (Matatt) she was married to Samuel Lozo, who was a son of John Lozo. Also my grandfather, Lawrence Lozo, Sr. is buried next to them. I do not have any information on when John and Elizabeth were married. I do know that they are both buried in the Hoosick Falls Rural Cemetery. Also Nora and Jay Ogden Buck had a daughter named Janette Elizabeth Buck who was born in 1920 and died 27 June 1921. She is also buried in the Hoosick Rural Cemetery. I have attached a copy of the 1910 census that my brother gave me, printed from ancestry.com

From an email to Monica LOZO on 17 Aug 2009:
Elizabeth ARBOUR was born the 5th of 12 children to Moise ARBOUR and Melina VAILLANT on 05 Jan 1869, in L'Assomption, Quebec. Her family emigrated to the US in 1878. Elizabeth was only ever married to John LOZO, to my knowledge. They were married on 30 May 1897 in Pownal, VT. This information comes from a kind woman in the Pownal library, who supplied a great deal of birth, marriage, and death info for this ARBOUR branch.

Elizabeth and John are found in the 1900 Census with
Joseph 22 b Mar 1878
John 20 b Jan 1880
Napoleon 17 b Oct 1882
George 15 b Aug 1884
Louis 13 b Nov 1886
Arthur 11 b Feb 1888
who are presumably all children from John's first marriage to Louise RINDEAU.
Nora 1 b Nov 1898
Mary B 2 mos b Mar 1900

Elizabeth and John are found in the 1910 Census with
Nora E 10
Harry ARBOUR 8
Henry ARBOUR 6
who are both Elizabeth's nephews; they are sons of her brother Moses.
Arthur LOZO 20
who is John's son Arthur from his first marriage.
The strange thing about this Census is that Elizabeth is noted as only having had 1 child and that 1 child is still living. Why no mention of Mary B? Perhaps the Census taker did not even ask Elizabeth how many children she had borne and just assumed Nora was the only one.

Elizabeth and John are found in the 1920 Census with
Joseph MUSEAU 45
who was a border.
By the way, Elizabeth and John lived next door to daughter Nora and her husband Jay BUCK at the time of the Census. Their daughter seems to have not yet been born.

Notes from about 2000: Elmer always enjyed playing hockey and actually got the opportunity to play as a professional. As WWII broke out, Elmer served in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Upon return fromthe War, Elmer resumed playing hockey. In those days if you came to a small town to play hockey for them, the townspeople found you a job. Elmer eventually came to Gravenhurst, Ontario, to play for the Indians. While in Gravenhurst, he met Ruth, his future wife. Later Elmer went to play for the Powassan Hawks and was offered a job with Ontario Hydro. They owned a home in town as well as a cottageon the east end of Lake Nipissing, just outside of Callander, Ontario. Even after Elmer no longer played hockey, they stayed there in their little piece of heaven. They finally converted their cottage to a permanent home and sold their place in town. Ruth still lives in their big place with the huge yard.

In 1989, Gertrude donated 2 acres of land adjacent to the North Pownal Cemetery and across the street from her home. The cemetery was getting full and she helped to enlarge it with her donation. The land was "part of her family's 77-acre farm." Arbour was secretary-treasurer of the Association (Cemetery) in past years, and she also served as Assistant Town Clerk after she retired at age 62. Arbour was born in 1903 in Bennington, where her grandfather had a livery stable, she said. Her parents moved to North Pownal in 1917, where she attended grammar school. When she was 14, Arbour enrolled inthe Bliss Business College in North Adams, MA, and after graduating, became first a stenographer then a legal secretary for anAdams, MA, lawyer Henry Harrington, who later became a Berkshire County Judge. A marker will be placed in the new section of the cemetery inscribed, "The Orchard, donated by Gertrude Arbour, 24 October 1989."

* Note:There is some mystery surrounding the life of Moses. On 26 Jun 1887, he married "Pluba" POST in Pownal, VT. The 1900 Census shows his wife as being named "Rheba," who was born May 1860 in QC. It also shows a daughter Addie born in Oct1890 (nothing more is ever found of this girl) and a son Fred born in May 1894. Well, Fred's death record shows him born on 09 Nov 1893. Which is correct? Furthermore, the 1920 and the 1930 Census returns show Moses as being married to "Mary," who was born in QC in about 1872. The 1920 Census also shows several more children for Moses: Harry (b ca 1901 VT), Henry (b ca 1903 VT), and Budgisol (b ca 1908 MA) (nothing more is ever found of this girl either). In VT vital records, there is a birth record for a male child (no doubt our Harry) born in Stamford, VT, on 31 Mar 1901 to Moses ARBOUR and "Libbie," who was born in Plattsburg, NY. However, a check of Pownal, VT, records shows a death record for Harry Joseph ARBOURborn in Stamford, VT (ok here), to Moses ARBOUR and "Philomene ALLARD." Who is she? In addition, VT vital records show the birth of Henry Albert ARBOUR on 4 Feb 1903 to Moses ARBOUR and "Thebie" POST (or PORT, handwriting is poor). Accordingto the same source, this Thebie was born about 1866 in Burlington, VT. Is Pluba, Rheba, Libbie, and Theba all the same woman? How does one explain Rheba (b 1860 QC), Libbie (b NY), and Theba (b 1866 VT)? Also, how does Mary fit in here? Is Philomene ALLARD someone whom Moses married later in life?
--> Note added on 16 Sep 2011: How is it that dau Irene's mother was listed as Phoebe ALLARD in 1898, when Moses did not marry Ms. ALLARD until 1904? It is all very confusing.
--> At the time of Moses death, no wife was mentioned in his obituary. Interesting.

Moses Arbour and Harry Allsop, who went to Bennington last week with teams to draw stone for a large wall that is being built in consequence of the big washout last fall, returned the day after they went, the conditions being found quite different from what they expected. They say they were given a box stall for a bedroom and that their teams were placed in a very dangerous position at the quarry, large stones being swung by derricks directly over the horses. One horse on the job was ruined by a 4200-pound rock hitting him and there have been several narrow escapes.

* Note:Pierre-Alexis was not listed with his parents in the 1881 Census. Perhaps he had already left home and moved to Montreal to begin his career as a printer. In 1901, Pierre earned $1200 as a typographer. Furthermore, there is considerable history of the building in which Pierre located his printing business, http://www.vieux.montreal.qc.ca/inventaire/fiches/eng/stpaul_o_171.htm. According toMorrey's Classified Business Directory in 1899, a printing and publishing business known as Arbour & Laperle was located at 421 St Paul St in Montreal -- now at the address known as 171 rue Saint-Paul Ouest. Printer Pierre-Alexis Arbour was noted as Tenant from c.1895 to c. 1910, during which time he rented the building fromthe Corporation of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Montreal. Pierre was in partnership with Omer C. LAPERLE and then Charles DUPONT. According to Denis ARBOUR, Oscar LAPERLE was Pierre-Alexis' business partner. Later -- c. 1905 -- Pierre-Alexishad a new business partner by the name of Charles DUPONT and Arbour & Laperle changed to Arbour & Dupont.

Note added 16 Sep 2008: Apparently Pierre-Alexis took a trip to England during 1925. On 7 Nov 1925, he sailed from Southampton, England, aboard the Ausonia bound for Quebec City, QC. He was eventually to travel to 80 St Joseph Blvd West, Montreal, QC.
