Hello, Roland: I've just begun tracing the Robar side of my family. I am the granddaughter of John Frederick Robar, b 1853 and married to Sadie Ann Taylor in Teller Co, CO. in 1894. I'm wondering if this John is part of the same lineage of your family. His father (apparently) was Valentine. John F. Robar died in Republic, WA in July, 1919. He had 3 daughters; Alice Catherine, b 1897, Grace Ione, b 1901 (both in Cripple Creek, CO) and Edna Pricilla, b 1906 in Cle Elum, WA. Grace was my mother. I would be delighted to learn of the history of the family that you have. I have heard that my grandfather was born in Pennsylvania where his family were visiting, and they later returned to Nova Scotia. He also had a brother, James. I know of no other siblings. It appears that quite a number of Robars migrated to the Colorado mining areas during the late 1800's. Any information you have would be most welcome. It may be easier to reach me at my regular e-mail (
