John A LaBombard died 1 April 1929

John Andrew Labombard was born 21 April 1845 in Beekmantown NY son of Andre Bombardier and Marie Louise Belanger.  John is listed in the 1850 census in Beekmantown with his family.  He is listed in the 1860 census in Beekmantown, listed as a laborer in the household of Benjamin Farnsworth.

There is a John LaBombard who served during the Civil War from New York, but I don’t know that it is this same person.  Besides John A (son of Andre) there is also a John P (son of Pierre) who lived in NY and then in NH at the same time.

When John was 19, he married Virginia (or Virgina) Goyette of Montreal, on 22 April 1864.  They had two children – a daughter who probably died as an infant, and a son, John Henry Labombard (1866-1918.)  When son John was baptized at St Patrick’s, in Ellenburg NY, his father’s name was recorded as John Bap. LaBombarde.  Virginia died 12 April, 1866, when her son was just 3 months old.  She was just 17.  She is buried somewhere in the Ellenburg area. 

John married 16-year-old Isabella M Tourville on 27 November 1869 in Chateaugay NY.  I have not been able to find the family in the 1870 census.  They are in the 1880 census, in Elllenburg, NY, with young John, plus the first their first three children, George, Louisa, and Willie.  He was a farmer, and they raised potatoes.  He was counted in Ellenburg in the 1892 NY state census. 

John’s daughter Louisa married Lewis Gariepy, in 1893, and they moved to Etna NH some time before 1900.   John and family followed.  The Plattsburgh Sentinel, on March 15, 1895, reported:  John Labombard and Israel Shetraw, who went to Lebanon, N. H, last week, have returned. Mr Labombard bought a farm and will move next month, but Mr. Shefcraw has not yet closed a bargain, but has a number of farms in view. We are sorry to lose such honorable and true men as they have always proven themselves, but such is life; changes are stamped on all things.

In New Hampshire, the LaBombards lived near the Halls, around 1900.  Son Charles later married Daisy Hall.  In 1900 and 1910 they were counted in the census, living in Hanover.  John and Isabelle were also listed in the Hanover city directory in 1916 and 1918, with an address on Greensboro Road.  The 1920 census of Hanover lists John and Isabel and their son Ernest’s family.  John was a farmer, Ernest was a carpenter. 

Isabella died in 1923.  John A LaBombard died 1 April 1929 and is buried with his wife and son Royal at Mount Calvary Cemetery in Hanover.
