The Colorado connection to your Robar family prompted my response. My g-grandmother, Sarah Adelaide Robar b. 24 Jul 1839 (dau. of John Frederick Robar & Mary Catherine Eichel)
married Edmond(Edward Grace in Lunenburg County NS. Their son Edward Joseph Grace, b. Bridgewater NS on 5 Feb 1870 left there and supposedly moved to the Boston area for awhile. He probably stopped in Denver for awhile but ended up in Georgetown, Clear Creek County, Colorado where he married my grandmother ca. 1906.

I write because I wonder if your g-grandfather James, and g-uncle John Frederick Robar didn't perhaps travel to Colorado with my grandfather, E. J. Grace. I am descended from Abraham Robar so perhaps there is reason to think he and Valentine are brothers--particularly when several generations later descendants of these families end up in mountain towns of Colorado at about the same time. Your thoughts.
