This post will describe the Robineau family tree back two generations. My father was Adrien Robineau. Adrien had three children, all sons: Robert, Richard and myself. Adrien was born in Sturgeon Falls Ontario and in the mid-30’s moved to Alfred, Ontario near Cornwall. He learned a trade (shoe repair) and was an apprentice at the shoe repair shop in Lancaster, Ontario. He met his future wife (Lily Sauve) in Lancaster in the mid-40’s, were married on June 29, 1948. They moved to the “big” city (Cornwall) in 1949.
Adrien my father was born in1924 and died in 2002. His father was Leonel Robineau. Leonel was born in 1892 and died in August 1964. Leonel’s wife was Leda Mallette who who died in February, 1969. Leonel and Leda were married in 1914 in Montpelier. They had eight children:
