Moïse 'Mose' Regimbal was born September 14, 1855 in St-Louis-de-Gonzague, Qc. He was baptised in the parish church on the 16th. His marker date was estimated by his surviving family, but not accurate. Quebec parish registers confirm the actual dates.
Attending his baptism was his godfather, Joseph Regimbal; and his godmother, Onesime St-Louis.
Mose was the fourteenth and last child of Pierre Régimbal dit Jérôme (1806-1873) and Marie-Scholastique Payet dit St-Amour (1812-1887).
His father died in 1873 when Mose was 18. He stayed at home to support his widowed mother. In 1882, he migrated with her and his brothers to Minnesota in the United States.
The families settled in Gentilly, and he stayed with his brother, Fabien.
In 1890, he returned to St-Louis-de-Gonzague and was married in the parish church of his baptism to Marie Priscille Vincent on December 20th. The couple traveled to Minnesota as husband and wife and set up a home in Crookston.
In 1897, they moved with brother, Fabien and his family to Moxee, Washington. Mose bought a small farm near Yakima and there the couple lived until 'Pricilla' died in 1926 at age 67. They had no children.
In 1927, at the age of 72, Mose traveled back to Minnesota and there married 54 year old Elise 'Elsie' Longchamp. He lived out his days with her until his death in 1941 at the age of 86. Elsie passed just 3 years later.
Mose is buried near the graves of both his wives in Holy Rosary Cemetery, Moxee, Washington.
