Royal H LaBombard born 23 November 1895

Royal H LaBombard was born 23 November 1895 in Ellenburg, NY.  He was the  youngest of the seven sons and one daughter of John Andrew LaBombard and Isabella M Tourville.   The family moved to Hanover, NH, and was counted there in the 1900 census.  The older siblings had married or otherwise moved out of the household.  John had his own farm, and Samual and Chandler were listed as farm laborers.  Ernest was probably in school, but Royal was only 4.

The 1910 census lists the family still in Hanover.  Royal’s father still operated a general farm.  His brother Ernest, at age 16, was listed as a farmer as well.  Royal, age 14, did not have an occupation listed.

In April, 1915, Royal was the victim of an accidental gunshot wound to the head.  I do not know if he shot himself.  He developed septicemia, and died 27 May 1915.  He was buried at Mount Calvary Cemetery in Lebanon NH, and his headstone can be found on Find A Grave, where he was listed as Roy LaBombard.

      I now have a tree on Ancestry with the descendants of Barnabas Laclair and Sarah Ann Hawkins, which goes down to their great grandchildren, except for the 8 who are still living. If you have an Ancestry subscription, you’ll be able to find it – as it is a public tree. I will also send you the invitation to see it, so you’ll get the update notifications.
