Link to Jesmer family history

It seems that Mary Ann Robideau Jesmer, my Great-Great Grandmother, was one of 18 kids. A review of the genealogist info suggests that she was one of two siblings who made their way out west to Greenbush Township Minnesota. Mary Ann came with her husband, Joseph in 1876. Julia Jesmer came with Peter Robideau. The father of Mary Ann, Louis Robideaux, seems to come to Minnesota after the death of his wife. He appears in the Greenbush census in 1870 where he lived with his son Peter. It seems that the Robideau’s who were married to Jesmers, decided to make the trip westward to Minnesota.
