Hi Jim,

I am wondering why you feel she was born in Canada and most specifically Quebec?

I see that in 1900 she is shown born Nov. 1867 NY (age 32, indexed as born 1862 but age agrees with image) father born Canada mother born France
1910 census she is shown born about 1868 NY
1920 census she is shown born about 1869 NY
In 1925 NY census she is shown born about 1867 US

I do see that her death shows her born about 1863 but does not say where

In Quebec records there are 3 listings for Marguerite Robidoux (that spelling) baptisms - two in 1864 and one in 1868

1864 - baptism July 8, 1864 St. Chrysostome - parents George Robidoux and Aurilie Houle

1868 - baptism Sept. 28, 1868 St. Chrysostome - parents Louis Robidoux and Anne Northelot

1864 - baptism May 21, 1864 Napierville - parents Elmere Robidoux and Marguerite Raymond

None of these match with birth month of November shown for her in 1900 census but they are the only ones I could find.
