Marie Felicianne/Felicienne "Felicia" ROBIN, born September 15, 1874/1875 was a daughter of Pierre Melchior ROBIN and Marie Celestine MARTINEZ.

Marie Celestine MARTINEZ (b. 1849) (christened at Grand Coteau, Saint Landry Parish, Louisiana) was the eldest daughter of Sebastian Sosthene MARTINEZ of Assumption Parish, Louisiana and Marie Celestine HERNANDEZ, also of Assumption Parish, Louisiana.

Keep in mind that during those early times the Carencro area was part of Saint Landry Parish.

Pierre Melchior ROBIN (b. 1847) of Saint Landry Parish, Louisiana, was a son of Antoine Melchior ROBIN (b. 1819) of Saint Landry Parish, Louisiana and Marie Celina BERGERON (b. 1823) of Saint Martin Parish, Louisiana.

The last record I show of Marie Celestine MARTINEZ was the birth of a daughter in May 1882.

Pierre Melchior ROBIN had several children with Jeanne Pamela MARTINEZ, youngest sister of Marie Celestine MARTINEZ (see 1900 US CENSUS RECORD below).

Continuing with the ancestry of Marie Celestine MARTINEZ:

Sebastian Sosthene MARTINEZ (b. 1827)(father of Marie Celestine MARTINEZ) was a son of Josef Antonio MARTINEZ (b. 1799) and Therese HERNANDEZ (b. 1805), both of Assumption Parish, Louisiana.

Joseph Antonio MARTINEZ was a son of Francisco MARTINEZ (b. abt 1753) of Spain and Marie Antonia XIMENES (christened 1771) of the Canary Islands.

Francisco MARTINEZ was a son of Luis MARINEZ of Spain and Josefa MARTINEZ.

Marie Antonia XIMENES was a daughter of Juan XIMENES and Ana Del Rosario SUAREZ [or ROSARIO Suarez], both of the Canary Islands.

Therese HERNANDEZ was a daughter of Vicente "Vincent" HERNANDEZ (b. 1767/68) and Maria Juana "Jeanne" CAVALLERO (also found as CABALLERO) (b. 1774), both of the Canary Islands.

Vicente "Vincent" HERNANDEZ was a son of Gen. Sebastian HERNANDEZ, Sr. (b. abt. 1714) of Santa Cruz, Tenerife, Canary Islands and Theresa LOPEZ Suarez (b. about 1731-1741) of the Canary Islands.

In Spanish names, you often see two last names. It is traditional that father's surname is followed by the mother's surname.

Marie Juana "Jeanne" CAVALLERO was a daughter of Pedro Jorge CAVALLERO (b. abt 1744) and Marie Jesus GONZALES/GONZALEZ (b. abt 1744) of the Canary Islands.

Pedro Jorge CAVALLERO was a son of Josef CAVALLERO and Josefa PEREZ, both of the Canary Islands.

Marie Jesus GONZALES was a daughter of Jose GONZALES and Josephine PEREZ.

I have more on the ancestry of Pierre Melchior ROBIN, but this is enough for now.
