Tombstone Tuesday: Marie Louise Leontine Lefebvre nee Robillard, Cimetiere St-Joseph, Chelmsford, Massachusetts

This week for Tombstone Tuesday I am posting the final resting place of my great-grand aunt Marie-Louise-Leontine Robillard. Leontine, as I call her, was born and baptized on 6 Nov., 1868 in Ste-Melanie, Joliette co., Quebec. She was the daughter of Jerome and Sophie Riberdy. She was the 7th child born to Jerome and Sophie Riberdy.

According to Family Search Record Search, Leontine married Victor Lefebvre (Joseph, Eugenie or Virgine Jacob) on 6 Sept., 1887 in Lowell, Middlesex, Massachusetts. I need to obtain more records to verify the date of this marriage.

Also, there is some confusion surrounding the date of Leontine's death. Family Search Record Search has her date of death as 5 Dec., 1911 in Lowell, but St-Joseph Cemetery has her date of burial as 1 Dec., 1911. Further research must be done to try and clear the confusion.

According to the cemetery records, Leontine is buried in section J, lot 514. She is buried with her son Victor, who, according to cemetery records, was buried on 26 July 1948. Also, in the same plot is a Rene Deziel, Joseph Broulet, Rose Deziel and a Joseph Paquin. I have not found an obituary for Leontine yet and the research surrounding this family is on going. Please contact me for the latest updates.
