Hi, Libbi: My grandfather was (one of the) John Frederick Robars, born in 1853. He was the son of Valentine and Cahterine McConnell, and his place of birth (on death certificate) was shown as Wine Harbour, NS. He died in Republic, WA in 1919. I've been able to find some info on him, and if you'd like me to send it, please let me know. Also, I think one of your postings said you had a picture of Valentine's headstone. I'd appreciate it if you could send that to me. I've traced my grandparents to Cripple Creek, CO where they married in 1894, had 2 daughters, then moved to Cle Elum, WA where a third daughter was born, then later to Republic, WA. (My mother was the 2nd daughter.) If you think anything I have would be helpful to you, please let me know. Please contact me at my regular e-mail address.
