The latest blog post links to a french wikipedia page for Pierre (very sparse): That page links to an English-language obituary, by Delacour and Willoughby P. Lowe.
That obituary shares many phrasings with Delacour's French version.
It's briefer in general, with just a few explanations added for the benefit of a non-French audience.

But it includes a bit more detail about Pierre's health late in life: "He nearly lost his eyesight and the use of his legs." Which sounds to me like it could be tertiary-stage syphilis.

@ Paul (if you read): Have you looked into this Ancestry record? If yes of any help? She is also mentioned 1896 in Vienne (Isère).

Same Obituary as in #5, David (... by the way; nice photos of your home page/s)

And (while taking of photos), in A brief history of ormithological [sic] discovery discovery [sic, sic!] in Vietnam (here), by Vietnam:Birding, we find a Photo of; "Willougby P. Lowe, Jean Delacour & Pierre Jabouille". Even more Photos (many!) from Delacour's home/park/chateau, at Cléres have been posted on Facebook (here), incl. a better version of the photo above. And a closer Portrait of Pierre Jabouille himself.

For some additional info (nothing major) about their work together, see The Avicultural magazine 94, No.1-2 (1988), here.

Well guys, I'm done, that's about as far as I can reach regarding emmae and Jabouille.

Good luck finding the very last piece/s.
