Notes

The Robert & de Gonzague families are believed to be a branch of the Obomsawin family. [Day]

A document written in 1882 and citing Maurault's history of the Abenaki claims that the Obomsawin family descends from a white captive brought to Odanak during the colonial wars.

One researcher believes that Pierre Joseph Robert Obomsawin of Odanak is the son of Joseph Robert Namur whose parents were married at Fort St. Frederick in 1751.
