My ancestors are actually John Robinson and Alma Janelle, through their son William. The information you list in your reply is all correct!
Strangely, I cannot find the children of John Robinson and Agnes Rowe in the Canadian census after 1881. I do not know where they went...
John Frost Robinson died on Feb 23, 1909. I was also able to find his obituary and final resting place. The obituary mentions that he was born in Ireland, but does not give any more information. Srangely, in his obituary, they wrote "Newfoundland, Sherbrooke and Oklaohoma papers, please copy". I know that he lived in Sherbrooke in the 1880s... so that makes sense... but I wonder about the Oklahoma part... could his NF-born children have moved there?
Anyway... I was hoping there would be more info available on him somewhere in NF... as there is nothing in Québec records...
Thanks for taking the time to look into this! You must have put in quite a lot of time, as it took me years to find everything you mentioned in your reply!
