I am working on a new book on three different Robidouxs that should be published in December of this year, 2016. The book is titled “What’s in a Name” and will have a story about Philias Frazier Robidoux who was born in the Dakota Territory and ended up in Texas.
It will also include the story of Oliver E. Rebedew who was born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and ended up in Minnesota and Oliver Robert Robidoux who was born in Minnesota and ended up in Alaska.
There are incidents of killings, mutiny, hardship in the stories. The stories also have many good deeds by the Robidouxs. I have traveled to, Texas, South Dakota and Alaska researching the life of the three Robidouxs. I will be traveling to Minnesota and North Dakota this summer to complete the research.
I have been researching and writing books on the Robidous for many years and have tracked most of the descendants of Andre Robidou who came to Quebec in the mid 1600s. The books that I have published on the Robidous are shown on page 2 of this site.
I have also published several books on the vital statistics for the 3 upstate New York counties of Clinton, Franklin and Essex. The 3 counties are in the northeastern part of New York State and are bordered on the north by Canada and on the east by Lake Champlain and Vermont. The books are described on pages 3 and 4.
