A note about his tombstone birth date inscription. July 22, 1853 was his baptismal date, recorded in the parish register of the church at St-Louis-de-Gonzague, Quebec, where-in followed the words "né la veille", which meant he was born the day before.

Attending his baptism were his godparents, François Vachon and Emilie Séguin.

Fabien was the thirteenth child of Pierre Régimbal dit Jérôme (1806-1873) and Marie-Scholastique Payet dite St-Amour (1812-1887).

He and Salome LaBerge (1857-1938) were married in St-Louis-de-Gonzague on January 27, 1875. The couple moved to Minnesota with their four children in 1882.

His brothers Peter, Joseph, Frank, Mose and Charles; their families and their widowed mother, Scholastique, all departed Canada with him. His sisters, Emilie and Lucie remained in Quebec.
