Pierre Régimbal dit Jérôme was born on March 19, 1806 in the city of Mirabel and baptised the same day in the St-Benoît parish church.

His parents were Pierre Régimbal dit Jérôme (1778-1854), a farmer, and Marie-Apolline Desjardins (1786-?).

He was the second child born to the couple; his sister, Marie-Apolline 'Louise' (1803-?) being the first. He would later become 'big brother' to thirteen other siblings.

During his youth he worked at odd jobs for neighbors.

On October 3, 1831 in Montréal (Notre-Dame), he married Marie Scholastique Payet (1812-1887) of Ste-Thérèse.

His first child, Pierre, was born in 1832 and died at the age of 6 days. Pierre 'Peter' (1833-1915) came next, then daughter, Henriette in 1834, who sadly died after only 17 days.

His other children were Joseph (1835-1914), Emilie (1837-1870), Lucie (1839-1880), Adolphe (1841-1851), Charles (1843-1927), Philomene (1846-1848), Frank (1848-1908), Arsile (1850-1875), Stanislas (June, 1852 to July, 1852), Fabien (1853-1928), and Moïse 'Mose' (1855-1941).

After moving to Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague, Pierre became a baker, and followed this trade until his death.

In his later years, he was sorely afflicted with inflammatory rheumatism but was never heard to complain. An unassuming man, he preferred the warmth of his hearth and home to the adventure that many of his children would undertake as they sought new beginnings in the United States.

Pierre died in his home on April 16, 1873 at the age of 67. He was buried on the 17th in the parish cemetery. Over the years, his marker has disappeared and the plot that was his is no longer discernible to the occasional visitor.

His wife, Scholastique, and sons, Peter, Charles, Frank, Fabien and Mose, emigrated from Canada to Minnesota after his death.
